Rolling Loud Brings the Party to the Big Apple 

If you’re a fan of hip-hop or music festivals then you’ve heard about Rolling Loud. The three-day music festival is now in its 7th year, and it has quickly become one of the biggest live music events around. Rolling Loud is easily considered as the premier hip-hop festival in the United States and around the world.

Rolling Loud is known for its diverse lineup, which showcases some of music’s most popular artists as well as artists on the come up. Past performers have included Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Travis Scott and so many others. 

The renowned festival that started with one concert in Miami back in 2015, now takes place several times a year in multiple major cities around the world such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. RL made its return to New York City this weekend. Jam packed with electrifying performances across three stages, this year’s NYC lineup was of course impressive.

Day 1 Vibes

First day of Rolling Loud New York 2022 was full of epic moments, from electrifying performances to surprise appearances. Before headliner Nicki Minaj took to the stage, attendees as well as fans watching from home via RL’s stream were treated to several turnt up performances.

An early highlight came when Lil Tjay brought his New York energy to a stage for the first time in months. The face of drill music Fivio Foreign kept the momentum going. He performed his bangers and had drill music’s current it-girl, Ice Spice pop out. Lil Uzi Vert made several appearances on day-one. He ran down his biggest hits during his solo set and then came through during Nicki and Chief Keef’s set.

Kanye West surprised the RL crowd with a sighting during  Playboi Carti’s show time. The two performed their Donda collaboration, “Off The Grid” while rocking all black and Yeezy gear. Quen Nicki closed out the show with a setlist of fan-favorites. Her performance covered her decade-plus long career. Her Barbz gang was in full effect rapping along to just about every lyric.

Day 3 Vibes

Super Future was ready to tear the stage down for the final night of Rolling Loud New York 2022, but mother nature wasn’t on his side. The superstar rapper was only a few songs into his set when the weather became unbearable. Before the show was shut down due to the bad rain storm, the artist who just sold his publishing for a whole lot of money, performed several anthems from his catalog, including the A$AP Ferg single. “New Level” and his solo hit “Stick Talk.” Right before attendees were forced to leave for safety reasons Offset came through and did a couple of his biggest records.

The boogie down Bronx was in the house as Terror Squad’s Fat Joe and Remy Ma through it back to their mid-2000s bangers. Hometown heroes such as Dream Doll, J.I., Benny The Butcher and Shawny Binladen put on for the state of New York.

Big Drako aka Soulja Boy also brought the throwback vibes with his timeless hits. Pusha T, who released an album of the year contender earlier this year, Curren$y, Benny The Butcher, Dej Loaf, Yvngxchris and others also showed out.

Curiously Curated 002: Four Producers You Need to Know

In the world of music, producers have always played a key role. In the modern era of music, that notion has only become more substantiated. Producers are getting much more spotlight through social media platforms, which make discovering them even easier than before. Additionally, companies like BeatStars and Timbaland’s BeatClub have made producers’ lives even easier, connecting producers with other producers, artists, labels, sync licensing companies and more.

As the producer niche of the industry has evolved, so have the producers themselves. In this day and age, producers have to be some of the most adaptive music-makers of all. Think about it: a new trend emerges, and the first producers to master it are likely the ones to land the most placements with budding stars. Some are even fortunate enough to be the reason why the trend starts in the first place.

On this second edition of Curiously Curated, we’re highlighting some of our favorite producers who you probably aren’t directly aware of. Chances are, you’ve heard some of their work before. In no particular order, here are four producers you need to know.

1. Bakkwoods
<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CZpjAezJLFd/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

Bakkwoods is a producer who’s come a long way in the past couple of years. He become well-known for his work with SoFaygo, along with many other noteworthy artists. Woods been producing for Faygo since their early days together in Atlanta, and the two have only continued to collaborate.

In his latest Instagram post, Bakkwoods and SoFaygo are at Pharrell‘s crib in Miami, where they’re making music together and pouring champagne together. This is just one of many star-studded scenes that Bakkwoods has found himself immersed in lately; he’s produced for artists like Trippie Redd, Lil Tecca, SSG Kobe, Thouxanban Fauni, 6 Dogs and many other stars.

His “woods light that shit up” tag and his trademark sound are becoming more and more familiar to the world each day, as his music is accumulating a ridiculous amount of streams. Woods has put in years of work to get where he’s at today, and is only continuing to work harder.

2. Cash Cobain
<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CbsaNqqrlmo/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

“And this beat from Cash not from YouTube.”

New York producer Cash Cobain has come a long way since he taught himself how to produce drill beats. From pop to hip-hop, R&B and more, his thorough knowledge of music fuels the “sample drill” wave that he’s largely responsible for.

If you were to look at his Genius page, you’d see an insanely long list of collaborations, along with some easily recognizable names: B-Lovee, Lucki, Lil Yachty, Shawny Binladen, Casanova, and many, many more. A lot of the records he crafted for these artists have gone on to be some of their most unforgettable tracks. In the same way that Warhol would include logos of some of the most reputable brands in his works, Cash Cobain samples hits that live somewhere in just about everybody’s mind. And as if that’s not impressive enough, Cash raps on his own beats, too. The young talent does it all.

3. AR
<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CaQdi8ULRWN/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

AR is a Long Island-born producer whose come-up looks like nobody else’s. AR has long been one of my favorite producers, though I’m slightly biased from my time spent as his assistant in 2018 (and being from Long Island). That time, though it was largely spent doing menial tasks, taught me so much about AR, the underground hip hop scene, and music in general. Just by being around him, it was impossible to be behind on culture – from fashion, the best kept secrets in rap and production, cannabis, crypto, and more, AR has a phenomenal understanding of the world around us.

Separate from his other areas of expertise, AR’s musical catalog is seriously impressive. He’s got songs with Bryson Tiller, A$AP Rocky, Lil Gotit, Thouxanban Fauni, The Game, Kevin Gates, Robb Bank$, and countless other highly regarded names in music. Even more impressive than the big-name records he has is his eye for talent. He’s collaborated with artists like Yeat, Ola Runt, Sainvil, Benji Blue Bills, and Lunchbox, long before just about anybody else was aware of them. AR has a very distinguished style and is highly adaptive to the artists he works with, which is a rare balance in music.

Cor Blanco
<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/p/CdEg-PSPQT1/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

One artist who’s stood out to me over the years I’ve been familiar with him is Cor Blanco. From the beats he creates out of thin air, to the ear-catching lyrics he writes over them, and his ability to put on a performance that ties all of it together – Cor Blanco is on another level. There are some huge artists that I feel inclined to mention in comparison to Cor, but no comparison would do a proper justice. Cor Blanco’s music is incredibly original, from production to rapping.

To a familiar ear, Cor Blanco’s personal catalog of records is just as impressive as the placements he’s landed. His latest project, ‘Globoy,’ is the pièce de résistance of his recording work thus far, featuring his close friends ATM, Stacy Money, PuddaH, Countup, and NEMP. Separate from his impressive work for his own recording career, Cor Blanco landed two placements in Jack Harlow‘s 2019 project, ‘Loose‘: “9th Grade” and “Can’t Call It.” Talk about being early on a superstar. Cor Blanco has proven not only his ear for up-and-coming talent, but a masterful ability to produce and record music.

Bops That Just Dropped: New Music Roundup

Every week a bunch of new projects, songs and snippets hit the airwaves and streaming platforms and it can be a tall task sorting through all of the noise. Luckily, ONE37pm is here to help keep you in tune with what new music should be on your radar. From A$AP Rocky’s latest single to Jack Harlow’s hotly anticipated sophomore album, there’s something for a variety of hip-hop fans on this list.

‘Come Home the Kids Miss You’ – Jack Harlow
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/yQBImEeXNZ4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

“Strictly legends on my album,” tweeted Jack Harlow days before the release of his sophomore album. He surely wasn’t capping. The project titled Come Home the Kids Miss You features contributions from Snoop Dogg, Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake. There’s also a verse of the year-type verse from Drake, who shows up and shows out on “Churchill Downs.” The single “Nail Tech” and the No. 1 hit “First Class” also appear on Jack’s new 15-track project.

<code><iframe src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/album/2eE8BVirX9VF8Di9hD90iw?utm_source=generator" width="100%" height="380" frameBorder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></code>

“D.M.B.” — A$AP Rocky
<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0NzlbBmkM3E" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Love is in the air for A$AP Rocky and Rihanna, who star in the short film for Rocky’s latest banger “D.M.B.” On the track that was first previewed last year, the “Fuckin’ Problems” rapper confesses his love for the lady of his dreams. That special someone aka the soon-to-be mother of his first child, Rihanna knows exactly what he wants: his weed rolled, his drank poured up, his fridge full and someone to share his drip with. Sounds like a match made in trap lord heaven. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait another year for Rocky’s next album.

“Vegas” — Doja Cat

<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/kKpctBHTOGU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Too many people have questioned how to categorize Doja Cat. On her latest release, “Vegas,” the hybrid artist shows why she definitely should have “rapper” in her bio. She comes through with bars and flows on the single which will appear on the soundtrack to ELVIS — the bio flick based on the life and times of Elvis Presley. The track about a dirty dog of a man, samples “Hound Dog,” which was first made famous by Big Mama Thornton and then further popularized by the King of Rock & Roll.

Latin sensation Bad Bunny delivers his first project in about two years with the release of Un Verano Sin Ti. New music from Duke Deuce, Ella Mai, Juicy J, Tyga, Shy Glizzy, SiR, Ciggy Black also arrived this week. Tap in with our weekly playlist below and don’t forget to come back next Friday and every Friday after that for a round up of what’s new in music.

Aye! Aye! Aye! The Brooklyn naive first appeared on most news feeds and in algorithms with his viral hit “Big Drip.” Since then, he’s become one of the faces of New York Drill off of the strength of standout performances on tracks with some of hip-hop’s finest. He put his best flows forward on Drake’s 2020 mixtape cut, “Demos” and upped it from there with a scene-stealing verse on “Off The Grid,” from Ye’s Grammy Award-winning Donda. Now he’s ready to take center stage with B.I.B.L.E. The 17-track album features the singles “City of Gods” and “Magic City”, as well as contributions from Quavo, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky and of course Ye, who serves as the project’s executive producer.

Misunderstood – B-Lovee

While Pop Smoke and Fivio Foriegn have taken Brooklyn Drill worldwide, several Bronx bombers have been putting their own spin on the aggressive style of rap. One of the artists to emerge as a leader in the Bronx Drill sub-genre has been B-Lovee. The 22-year-old rapper reps A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Highbridge the Label imprint and has amassed fans and followers with hard-hitting bangers, collaborations with the likes of Kay Flock and catchy tunes. His breakout single, “IYKYK” currently has over 14 million Youtube views and is featured on his first official EP, Misunderstood.
