Veteran hip hop artist Tech N9ne and his Strange Music team just don’t stop! With one of the busiest tour schedules and a roster of artists that continue to consistently drop music, there’s no wonder that Tech N9ne is considered the biggest independent hip hop artist in the world. With the release of his new album, “N9NA”, he has just delivered what is his 21st solo studio album. His career is one that has suffered many downs and ups, but Tech keeps coming.
Leading his album off is his visual to the song “Like I Ain’t”. The lyrics find the Kansas City emcee spitting about some of his many accomplishments and collaborations in music during his 20 plus year run. Name dropping some of the culture’s elite breed of rappers, Tech ensures that he is still going to do his thing “like he ain’t never” do any of it. There’s a difference in being hungry and thirsty. With all the success he has, seems that Tech N9ne is still hungry. #PRESSPLAY

Riding high of her recent Grammy win for Hip Hop Album of the Year, Cardi B still has music on the charts.

Cash Money Records has a track record of providing some of hip hop’s most memorable bangers, in the clubs and the streets. Juvenile can be credited as the break through artist for Cash Money with his energetic classic, “Ha”. With a history of falling out and linking back up, he and Cash Money CEO Birdman link together on this new track as two of the last standing original members on Cash Money. With the sound of “Just Another Gangsta”, you have to wonder if there were a Cash Money/Hot Boys/Big Tymers reunion album, what it would sound like. #PRESSPLAY
Troy Ave isn’t immune to controversy and confrontation. With the amount legal battles, beefs (industry & in the streets), and more problems, Troy has still been releasing a constant stream of music. Never one to hold his tongue, he continues to address the issues in his life through his music. With the release of his latest visual, “Streets Is A Myth”, he makes it known that he has a completely different out look on what the streets mean to him. The video is computer animated and features caricatures of few faces that you should know. #PRESSPLAY
Blueface is one of the newest break out rap artist from the West Coast. Being the first artist to release music on Cash Money West, a division of the established Cash Money Records ran by Birdman and Slim Williams, his single “Thotiana” has been garnering a buzz. With the attention on him, the best move would be to get a remix with a female rapper to round out the theme of the track. And why not grab a feature with the currently hottest female rapper at that?! With a Grammy victory freshly acquired, Cardi B fits the bill. WIth the release of this video coming less than a week after her win, the timing is perfect to push this remix! #PRESSPLAY
Lil Wayne had a welcoming comeback to the game in 2018 with the release of his long awaited album, “Tha Carter V”. One of the prime features included on the album is “Don’t Cry” with late rapper XXXtentacion. XXXtentacion was shot and killed in his car during a robbery back in June of 2018. His death swept the hip hop community by storm and had many in shock. The visual to his featured track with Lil Wayne was released a day before his 21st birthday (January 23, 1998) and pays tribute to him with flashes of videos and pictures from his perfomances. RIP XXXtentacion #PRESSPLAY
