Russian artist VEE drops his new single. “Sober” comes in anticipation of his new project “SOBER” set to drop later this summer. The track takes the listener down memory lane with Vee as he reminisces about college life. Battling the peer pressures of partying, hooking up and drinking with friends, Vee seeks genuine fulfillment – in true love and companionship.
“Sober” brings Vee back to a place from his past. Born in cold Siberian Russia, Vee always had great passion for music. While growing up, Vee had a heavy influence from american hip hop music. The ability to tell a story in it’s most vulnerable and raw way, moved Vee despite the heavy language barrier. As a child, Vee wrote songs however because he couldn’t speak english – they were just gibberish resembling the sound of English. When he was twelve years old, Vee asked his parents to buy him studio equipment for Christmas. After setting up a recording studio in his childhood home, he would always get paid by local singers and rappers to record and mix their songs behind his parents’ backs while they were at work. This allowed him to constantly upgrade his equipment and improve the quality of his records.
As a teenager, Vee focused his efforts on discovering his sound and figuring out where his place in music was. Driven by his dreams of moving to Los Angeles and pursuing his music career, Vee mastered the English language in only 2.5 years while still living in Russia. At 17, Vee moved to LA to attend college & devoted his free time in music. To save up for studio equipment, Vee would skip meals saving up his money while improving upon his music production knowledge. He always believed that music chose him, and with hard work and dedication, he would find his sound and passionate fans all around the world. Being so proficient and completely independent in his creative process allows Vee to really put his heart and soul into his craft and find out where he fits in the industry as an artist. Vee has proven his love of and commitment to music by not only moving halfway across the world to start his career, but also by mastering a new language vastly different from his Russian mother tongue. Vee won’t stop at anything to turn his dream into a reality.
Hear “Sober” above, and stay tuned for more from Vee.

is a grimy venture into the minds of two of the UK’s best lyricists,
complete with distorted vocals and sealed off with Brown’s inimitable
approach to production. It is yet another jewel in the crown of a
producer who refuses to adhere to the rules and regulations that genre
titles attempt to impose on the music.
Both Datkid and Dabbla
construct some of their finest bars on the track, which says a lot for
two MCs as prolific as they are. The verses unravel at a rapid rate, the
ideal delivery for the production they are lacing.
conjunction with Gimme’s release, Potent Funk have teamed up with
pocket studio app, Brapp, to offer MCs the chance to get themselves a
verse on the official remix. All they need to do to enter is follow the

Last year there were 40,147
instances of knife crime in London – just let that terrifying,
sickening number sink in for a second. Veteran UK rapper Unkle Festa has and he’s fighting back, harnessing the power of hip-hop to take a stand with hard-hitting new single ‘Out Your Mind’.
and never preachy, ‘Out Your Mind’ pulls no punches, savagely exposing
the mindlessness of knife crime and issuing a rallying cry to put a stop
to it. Over a haunting piano-led beat Festa asks “how many of our children have to be dead” before launching into a machine-gun chorus bringing his vintage flow to bear on heartfelt lyrics set to stun.
The former Mud Family spitter has been in the game since the late 90s, when he linked up with Skinnyman after relocating from Cyprus to London – since then knife crime in the UK has rocketed, with fatal stabbings at their highest level since WW2.
this violent epidemic is finding its way into the rapper’s tracks –
“When I write it’s about the things on my mind and close to my heart,”
said Festa. “Seeing first-hand the madness on our streets motivated me to write this track”.
The track is driven by a message and screaming for social change, and Festa is seeing the bigger picture to make that happen: ”Out Your Mind is not just for the youth to understand, but parents and government to understand – they need to listen and must change themselves to create a better environment for our children to grow”.
The Figure It Out EP was announced exclusively by Jai during an interview on the Beats 1‘s Travis Mills show in Los Angeles this April. Commenting on the EP, Jai shared, “This
EP is a body of work that came together through a bunch of sessions
with my producer James, it’s the first solid work we’ve done together
and it was really just a lot of experimenting and getting to know each
other. It’s a step into this new direction and has a couple more urban
tracks on there, and a couple of straighter pop vibes.”
b2 Music, a division of Holdings Limited, announces the release of “Paint Me In God”, the lead single off their upcoming second installment of Vibe presents: Urban Asia.“Paint Me in God” features an all star lineup, including LA artist, Mike Rebel, superstar T-Pain, and Chinese rapper WangYi Tai, of Rap of China fame. This single is an East-West pairing, representing all corners of the world, and sets the tone for the whole album; which is set to drop May 24th. ““Paint Me In God” is a soundtrack for anyone who has been judged by THEIR appearance, the amount of money they have, where they were born, or anything other than what they truly are” states Rebel.
With the Asian music industry making a larger imprint in today’s mainstream U.S culture, T-Pain was happy to be part of this movement; “Music doesn’t have a nationality, doesn’t belong to a country or one people. It doesn’t surprise me that the culture of hip hop is resonating in China, and this is the perfect record to bridge our two cultures. It’s always more exciting for me to be involved with a song like this one; one that touches on topics everyone relates to…how people are judged verses how we all should be judged…let’s paint everyone the color GOD” he says proudly.
French “Cloud Rap” duo PNL releases new visual for single, “Deux Frères”(Two Brothers) off their album of the same name.
Two brothers (Tarik and Nabil Andrieu, aka Ademo and N.O.S.) that flipped European hip-hop on its head share the second music video off their new album. Following up on their groundbreaking visual for “Au DD” which is said to be the first ever filmed inside of the Eiffel Tower PNL drops “Deux Frères”, a portrait of their French upbringing.
The seven-minute video is extremely autobiographical. It tells the story of when the brothers left Gagarin in Ivry in 1995 to settle in Tarterêts, in Seine-et-Marne. “Deux Frères” transitions between scenes of drugs, project hallways, and violence which reminds viewers of what PNL has overcome.
Comparable to the previous music video “Deux Frères” explores PNL’s journey from selling drugs in Paris to evolving into rap superstars.The song continues to highlight PNL’s signature “cloud rap” sound; immersive, deep, subtle, and laced with melodic flows and narratives from within Paris’ subcultural underbelly.
The visual has surpassed 7.4 million views on YouTube. Booska-P writes, “PNL brings us back to the years when its members squatted the hall and roamed the asphalt of a city now deserted and doomed to destruction.”
With the growing success of the new album PNL sets the stage to ascend further from France’s homegrown heroes to renowned household names worldwide.
“Deux Frères” is available now on YouTube and can be streamed or purchased here. Their album Deux Frères is available now. For updates and more information about PNL please refer to the social media links below.
