Canada-Based Lyrical Model Erick Rush Has a Spectacular Cultural Anthem; “One Thing About Me”
Born in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania in 1990 is how the story of conscious rapper Erick Rush begins. Fashioning a life full of adventures, Erick Rush began touring beginning with his native Tanzania before migrating to the United States and eventually settling in his current residence, Edmonton in Canada. He has also been to many African countries including South Africa where he demanded attention with his ear-catching features with Nasty C. Seeking to tell his own story through hip hop, Erick Rush wants to show another side to the rap game while washing away the negative stereotypes associated with hip hop music such as gang violence, crime and drugs.
His lyrical prowess has not gone unnoticed with several accolades to his name including reaching the Top 10 finalist in the Trace Stars music competition and being named Hype’s MVP by HypeMagazine. He was also honored as a People choice nominee by Edmonton Music Awards.
His music is, of course, a blend of different cultural influences and experiences from his many travels through different cities, provinces and states along with lifelong musical influences from some of his all-time favorite rappers such as Lil Wayne, JAY Z and Tupac Shakur. He tells his own immigration stories lyrically over hip-hop beats in ways that many listeners can relate and even those who can’t at least get to be treated to something different and hear the other side of other people’s stories.
Creative at heart and seeking to make a positive impact with his sound one song at a time, Erick Rush is a conduit through which unheard stories are heard. His 2021 album, “Culture Shock: An Immigration Story” which he states as his most powerful to date tells his own experiences as a migrant through different states. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, every track in here tells emotional, intimate and real stories in the most notable ways possible- it is no surprise it was massively received with deserved acclaim following positive reviews from magazines, listeners and radio play.
The dream for him now is to never stop, he is shooting for the stars, and looking at how his music has been able to inspire listeners as much as other artists around him is why this dream will never die. He seeks to increase his influence to worldwide levels and is right on track to do that- one release at a time.
The track, “One Thing About Me” is a straight favorite- first things first, that rocket ship-inspired cover art is ready to launch and it epitomizes a steady rise of Erick Rush’s career as he takes his music to space! With catchy hooks sandwiched in between real-life inspired thought-provoking bars, this is what authentic hip hop tastes like.
The beats are flawlessly expressive with a hypnotic blend of vintage synth lines, powerful drums, firm basslines and of course the nostalgic thrill that is reminiscent of the old-school type of rap. Erick Rush honors his moment with a genuine display of rap-tainted poetic dexterity that makes an impression on any listener regardless of whether you enjoy rap music. He tells of how he had to step up on his and his family’s behalf so as to create a pathway that many are now benefitting from.
Raw and honest, this is why “One Thing About Me” is an undeniable favorite. He featured fellow rapper K Riz who does well to complement this track both in storyline and symbolism coming through with clever wordplays over the transcendentally warm beats.
“One Thing About Me” is now available on all your favorite streaming platforms- follow the attached link and let this track be your favorite go-to hip-hop anthem!

Christian Rapper Allen W Brown Has a New Glorifying Crossover Masterpiece Dubbed “Over and Over” (Feat. Levi Mann).
Allen W Brown is a Christian rapper and musician, a husband and father, who has been dedicated to spreading the gospel of Christ through hip hop music. Having been saved from the street life of drugs, crime, and gang culture, he took it upon himself to inspire other people and their faith in God using his musical gifts. Drawing on his own journey of truly understanding and accepting grace, Brown hopes for every listener and worshipper to know the depths of God’s goodness towards them and for that reality to release them from shame and the empty rules of religion into a life full of freedom and joy.
Allen W Brown’s latest track, “Over and Over,” is a melodic Christian song with country music sensibilities praising Christ for his everlasting love, grace, and mercy. This is an affirmation of Christ’s never-ending hope in all of us, even when we fail him over and over again.
Featuring country music singer Levi Mann, the two of them go on to deliver a spectacular anthem with that crossover appeal. The chorus is uplifting, as is the heartwarming lyricism delivered meticulously in Brown’s signature melodic rap.
Allen W Brown has gone on to build one of the most impressive discographies in Christina rap, with a catalog spanning 4 albums, 2 EPs, and countless singles. His 2021 album, “In God I Trust,” was unanimously acclaimed, winning accolades such as “Alternative Album of the Year,” with the track, “Help My Unbelief” off of the album winning “Alternative Song of the Year” at the Rhythm of Gospel Music.
To him, this is just the beginning; he has barely scratched the surface as he seeks to release new music every month, which will hopefully lead to his 5th studio album in 2024.

Memphis Emcees Nero Glace and Hp Debo Link Up Again With a Heavy Banger Dubbed, “Sneaky Link”
Nero Glace represents the life of the streets, having grown up in it, flirting with danger a number of times but eventually following his musical passion consistently to avoid trouble and getting sucked into that life of street culture that is filled with crime and drugs. Growing up in the streets allowed Nero Glace to develop that high degree of literacy that characterizes his rhymes today. Under his charming looks is a fierce personality who always gives his A-game on any record he is put in.
Nero Glace and Hp Debo’s, (another Memphis emcee) fierce verses that they laid on “Yeen Neva Freestyle” earned them up-and-coming notice among the Tennessee rap scene. The two of them exude such an indestructible chemistry, and it is always a pleasure to hear from them again on a joint collaboration like this latest masterpiece dubbed, “Sneaky Link.”
“Sneaky Link” is Nero Glace’s first release of 2023 and hopefully the first of many to come this year. Having had enough of the anti-men crusade tracks and anthems, Nero Glace and Hp Debo decided to get into the studio and make a deserved anthem for the boy child.
This track is all about the comfort level in dating and sex life where you are beyond manipulation and just being in a position to call the shots—not in an abusive or toxic level but in a way that means you have it all under control and it’s working positively.
I love that fiery chorus that Glace drops here that takes up residence in a listener’s brain for the rest of the day. Debo comes through with some thought-provoking, memorable bars over the bouncing beats before Glace takes over and drives the message home with his masterful flows delivered in first-class lyrical fashion.
“Sneaky Link” is a proper street anthem and one that gets you fired up and feeling the vibe in your own unique ways. The beats are epic and capable of crashing your car windows.
“Sneaky Link” is the ultimate cruise beat for the summer and a must-have record. Follow the attached link and save this banger to your playlist.

Emerging Boy Band No Lonely Hearts, Under the Wing of KDS Platinum and Johnny Wright Partnership, Are Set to Release Their New Single “Special Treatment” on April
No Lonely Hearts are the next group of heartthrobs to help revive the boy band concept. The fact that the famed KDS Platinum Records and the legend himself, Jonny Wright, President of Wright Entertainment Group, are willing to collaborate with them tells you of the magnitude of talent we are talking about here.
No Lonely Hearts is a 5-piece group made up of young, visionary, forward-thinking, seasoned, and diversely talented young men hand-selected during an intense, nationwide audition process that brought together Alex, from New Jersey, Brian and Oliver, both from Florida, Aidan, from Pennsylvania, and Dylan, from Texas. Boy Band from Orlando, Florida, the Boy Band Capital of the World
No Lonely Hearts are poised to outdo all of their predecessors and go on to become the biggest boy band since Backstreet Boys. Brimming with warm and fresh blood, flanked by youthful exuberance, it will not take long for them to start hitting #1 many times across the musical world with their undeniably hooky songs and plenty of boy-next-door charm!
Johnny Wright has worked with some of the industry’s most revered artists, such as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, The Jonas Brothers, Backstreet Boys, and NSYNC. His limitless creativity is exactly what an up-and-coming band like No Lonely Hearts, with its whole future ahead of it, needs, and I have no doubt that they are going to do great things together.
No Lonely Hearts may now be the quintessential boy band of the 2020s, a group that seems to acknowledge no boundaries between styles or eras, coming through with a sound that is idiosyncratic and personal.
Their genre-bending style of music will incorporate elements from pop, dance-pop, rhythm and blues, teen pop, and adult contemporary, which will give them broad appeal among different demographics.
This collaboration with KDS Platinum Records and Wright will also elevate No Lonely Hearts to international acclaim.
From the few instances I have seen them perform, I have been made aware of a band that can handle the big adult contemporary R&B and pop genres with equal dexterity as their successful predecessors. The result of their music has been an appeal across the board that can only be matched by a few teen artists of their era.
Over time, they have been developing a virtuosic singing style characterized by swooping, flashy, melodic embellishments. Ultimately, No Lonely Hearts have been hailed as the next strong force in pop-R&B, having showcased a natural instinct to remain either slightly ahead of the curve or innately adapt to trends with remarkable stylistic flexibility.
This is what the future looks like—it is brightly plastered with impish glee as it ushers in the next hot talents with the sight of becoming one of the most ubiquitous hitmakers in the world.
With a genuine chemistry between them that has been quick to show itself off, No Lonely Hearts can only hope to evolve into a dominating musical force that will build one of the most impressive discographies in pop-R&B and go on to inspire generations before them.
No Lonely Hearts are just as buoyant as the music they perform, which is marked by crunchy vocals, eye-catching dance moves, glamorous stage presence, and virtuosic songwriting. Be prepared for moods that make you want to skip down the streets of upper paradise, inspiring your own wild-eyed creativity!
It is now with so much pleasure that I introduce to you your new favorite boy band: No Lonely Hearts. Follow them everywhere and look out for them as they are on a multi-city USA tour…they could be pulling up in your city any time soon, and you don’t want to miss out on such generational talent as this!
Their new single, “Special Treatment,” will be available on all streaming channels on April 10th, 2023.
