Dillon Francis Shares New Single and Music Video “BaBaBa (Vete Pa’Ya)” (feat. Young Ash)


LOS ANGELES – MAY 09, 2018 – Platinum-selling artist, DJ, and producer Dillon Francis has released “BaBaBa (Vete Pa’Ya)” (feat. Young Ash), the third single off his forthcoming Spanish language studio album, due out later this year via his own IDGAFOS record label. Recorded in New York City with Bronx-based vocalist Young Ash, the track is available to stream and download now HERE. Francis today also shared an accompanying music video for the track directed by Joel Strong (aka @mydaywithleo). Watch the music video HERE.
“For my album I really wanted to make a song reminiscent of ‘Que Que’, but an elevated version of it that was fun yet tough sounding. Young Ash’s flow on this is exactly that,” shared Francis. “It’s truly one of my favorite tracks from the project. Her voice is so strong and striking which makes for such an incredible gritty moombahton song”

Francis’ forthcoming album was executive produced by Toy Selectah and recorded in New York City, Miami, Dominican Republic, and Mexico City. Harkening back to his 2011 breakout Westside! EP, the album sees him revisit his early Latin influences and moombahton roots. “BaBaBa (Vete Pa’Ya)” (feat. Young Ash) follows the January release of “Ven” (feat. Arcángel & Quimico Ultra Mega) and February release of “We The Funk” (feat. Fuego).

IDGAFOS originated from Francis’ 2011 song of the same name, which at the time, reflected the culmination of his signature musical productions. The term has since evolved into a rallying cry for all things Dillon Francis — his clothing line, epic live show, and now an outlet with which to release his new music. In his own words, IDGAFOS is “to be spirited and happy… to never give a fuck or shit about anything but remaining positive.”

Francis recently collaborated with GRAMMY Award winning Puerto Rican rapper Residente on the track “Sexo” and starred in the song’s vibrant music video, which has amassed over 48 million views in less than a month. Watch it HERE.
Francis can currently be seen as a contestant on Comedy Central’s Reggie Watts-hosted “craziest game show ever” Taskmaster. Watch a trailer for the show HERE.  Last month, it was also revealed that Comedy Central is developing Living The Dream, a new series from Francis and comedian/author Aaron Karo. In addition to serving as writer, actor, and executive producer for the show, Francis will also contribute original music.

Later this year, Francis will perform at numerous international music festivals and resume his residency at the Wynn Las Vegas for the third consecutive year. A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.

Christian Rap Artist YB Blazes Trail With New Visual, “Fire Emoji”





New York, New York (March 2, 2018) – Christian hip-hop artist YB blazes a trail with new music video, “Fire Emoji.” The visual is the third single off his highly anticipated new album God Still Has Soldiers 2 which drops on March 7th and can be pre-ordered now on iTunes.

“Fire Emoji” has YB lit up with vibrant color schemes to intensify his thought-provoking lyrics. On a trap inspired beat that includes an “O Fortuna” sample, YB commands attention with the empathic statement, “No hook!” He delivers rapid wordplay instantly, quickly flowing through his verses with ease and not undermining his vision. “Surrendered to Christ, gave up my life, he covered the bill. Leading a generation back to the father, I’m gon’ do this till I die, I know what permanent is.”

YB understands the significance of making a good first impression. When asked about “Fire Emoji” the talented emcee said, “Fire Emoji” is the opening song on the record. It sets the tone for the entire album. I wanted the song to grab the listener. I believe it did just that. This video took the songs energy to a whole new level.”

The single has picked up steam after premiering on Hip-Hop Vibe. Rapzilla, the top Christian hip-hop music publication, quickly boosted the release. Other hip-hop music publications like EARMILK and The Word is Bond have supported YB as he gets closer to the debut of his new album. The Sarasota, Florida based rapper is highly acclaimed in his city. Sarasota Magazine wrote, “Christian pop tunes have long been perceived as corny derivatives of mainstream trends rather than original styles, but Farris’ [YB] tracks are strong enough to banish that stereotype.”

“Fire Emoji” is available now across all music streaming platforms. YB’s new album God Still Has Soldiers 2 releases on March 7th and can be pre-order now on iTunes. For more information about YB please refer to the social media links below.

Hip Hop is an art form and culture that is constantly changing. Musically speaking, new technology and the latest trends have a very real influence on the records released from year to year. It’s easy to get caught up in the pop culture hype machine and triplet trap beats that currently dominate rap. Trends come and go, but the proven elements of Hip Hop music will continue to be relevant for years to come. For instance, MCs that spit ferocious bars over dusty, head-splitting beats will never go out of style. Enter Detroit’s Nolan The Ninja and his latest record, YEN. Released on DJ Soko’s imprint, Left of Center (LOC)YEN picks up where Nolan’s earlier projects left off.

Nolan, who has been gaining momentum in Detroit and elsewhere, continues to demonstrate his ability to rip a microphone. Underneath Nolan’s agile delivery is an element of storytelling that is sometimes lost in rap. From Nolan’s rhymes to guest appearances by Royce Da 5’9Blu, Add-2, Denmark Vessey and Quelle Chris, there is no shortage of heavy bars on YEN.

With stand out production from Black Milk, 14KT, Chanes, Denmark Vessey, Scud One and Nolan himself, YEN is 17 tracks of non-stop heat that creates the perfect backdrop for Nolan’s strong delivery.

Growing up, Nolan and his friends were accustomed to status symbols by default. The latest video release “Lex” is dedication to that. “We’re older now & realize our full potential to do great things while acquiring our childhood statuses in the midst. Triumph.” says Nolan.

Nolan The Ninja fresh teams up with fellow Detroiters Finale (who’s latest album with producer Oddisee) and DJ Soko to book for a European tour late spring/early summer 2018. Zoo Book Agency is now booking dates for Europe and the UK, for all promoters interested in bringing this tour to their city/country
