Recently rapper Big40 dropped his single “Motivation” to critical acclaim in the streets of Cleveland and now the rapper drops the follow up track “Ride 4 Me” which is also the title track to his album, dropping soon on available streaming platforms and including Pt.1 & Pt.2.
Despite the fact that “40” is in high school, this Midwest upstart was forced to grow up quickly after both his mother and father passed away tragically. Their loss inspired Big40 to pursue his career in Hip-Hop and has since become an artist to watch on the Cleveland scene.
“It started off as a freestyle game type of thing with my friends at school when I was younger. Then I started going home making actual songs, finding actual beats off YouTube. It took a minute for me to find my own sound, discover myself and take the music route serious.Once that happened I fell in love with it and now going harder than I ever did,” Big40 explained.
With an uncanny focus in the studio, Big40 doesn’t waste any time when he gets in the booth.
“I waste no time when it comes to making studio sessions to get songs done for projects. But it’s a whole different feeling when you step inside the booth and get into your own zone. There is really no process for me going in the booth really. I pull up and go hard as possible. I definitely love working on project after project, it’s like chapters of my life I put out to the public. Those who consume it we gone rock out, those who don’t, they eventually will,” a confident Big40 said.
With a big high school tour coming up around Cleveland and with Big40doing things for the kids to build a partnership with schools, there’s no telling how far Big40 can go with the youth behind him.
Motivation is the focus for Big40 going forward as he drops the 103Films directed video.
“My guy 103Films from Cleveland shot the video for us. It was my 2nd time shooting with him and the first time made me call him back. The 2nd time because his work was dope,” Big40 added.

“Blood in the Streets” is currently available on all DSP’s and is the first single off of Santos’ forthcoming March 2019 release,“Fisherman.”

He would go on to make his feature film debut at age 12 in the MGM/Gramercy Pictures drama, Jason’s Lyric alongside Forrest Whitaker and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Recently rising talent Cezer dropped the audio for his new single with Maino and Hollywood Luck called, “GroupE Luv.”
Drawing in eyes with a controversial cover that features a Kim K look-a-like, the art work depicts the reality TV star in front of NBA and NFL player’s jerseys linked to the reality TV star in tabloid hyped relationships.
Adding to the controversial cover, Maino joins Cezer again after their highly successful track “Cold As Ice” that garnered a huge response from fans on blogs and social media.
“I spent some more time in New York and me and Maino were able to link up again and record some new material. A lot of people don’t think that Maino fuck with Southern artists, so I wanted to close that gap and put him on something different,” Cezer said. “Once we got it recorded I came back down South to work on it. He’s an East Coast artist, I’m a down South artist, so I just wanted to bridge that gap with a Southern sounding song.”
After traveling around to Chicago and Atlanta, Cezer gained some notoriety putting in work with Grand Hustle through his relationship Big Kuntry King. That lead to songs with Young Dro, Young Buck and a host of other artists.
Cezer has since developed a following on the East Coast after several songs with Maino. The rising rapper took the time to talk about his experience breaking out of Mississippi and the challenges associated with these kinds of moves as an entertainer.
“People don’t even understand how difficult it is to break out of Mississippi. Coming from here we gotta work 10 times harder from the next artist from the next state,” Cezer said. “Yea we got New Orleans and Memphis within a hour and a half, but at the same time there is a limited entertainment scene where I’m from so I had to travel a lot to get my music heard and ending up songwriting.”
Going forward to close out the year, Cezer has plans to release several more singles including one with artists from Mississippi while continuing to earn publishing for his songwriting credits.
“The goal is just to continue to release more material and stay in their face with new music,” Cezere xplained. “Without the fans none of this would be possible so I have to thank them for continuing to support my music.”
Most recently, Lil Ugly Toes continued to build his internet presence with the bass heavy screamo friendly track “Bheeep” using world renown Hip-Hop staple WorldStarHiphop.com as the outlet for his release.
“In a lot of my newer projects I’m trying to dig deeper into my feelings and express the things that I’ve been going through more,” Lil Ugly Toes explained. “The big homie Triston (@thereddwarfs) shot the video. I met Triston through another friend when shooting my first music video for the song Two.”
Known as “Toes” amongst close friends and labelmates, the 6’4” rapper began his career in the state of Indiana being influenced by Biggie, Chief Keef and Metallica, but ultimately realized that he needed to move to Los Angeles to further pursue his goals of commercial success.
“I believe that I am the next wave, people gravitate to what I’m doing and I have put myself on another coast away from my family and everything I know strictly to reach my goals. I bet it all on me when I came to LA,” LilUgly Toes said.
In 2018, Lil Ugly Toes formed a partnership with Hollywood, California based record label Starboss. Building brick by brick from their multi-level studio and compound, “Toes” embodies every bit of Larry Bird’s Indiana State days hooping with friends in between studio sessions and video shoots.

The track is taken from their upcoming EP The Language as the Gringo Gang consisting of (Spacedad, Shawn Ham, and J Mo) have united the Southside and the Westside’s of Naptown for a movement the whole city can get behind.
Recently the group interviewed with Radio One Columbus’ radio station WCKX 107.5, stating “We are not just another white rapper group, our music speaks for itself. You are witnessing the future unfold.”
“We started back in 2015, it started as a city wide movement with a clothing line we were pushing and then J-Mo and Shawn Ham started to come around more and we formed the group Gringo Gang. It’s crazy because the name came from a friend who was actually making fun of us. We took it and ran with it,” Spacedad said.
Gringo Gang Records formed in 2016 and has seen success with the regional singles “Slap Bacon” as well “Prank Out”, which was covered by most mainstream outlets, blogs, and music services.
While Spacedad, Shawn Ham and J Mo make up the Gringo Gang, each have come from solo success.

“We’re really excited to be able to partner with two companies that have assisted in the guidance of the careers of artists such as D12 and Bone Thugs and Harmony,” says Gringo Gang Records founder Jason Reed. “We can now take advantage of this powerful platform and look forward to growing our company reach.”
This special co-branded partnership of Federation Records/Gringo Gang Records will provide a unique double-sided relationship, in which both subscribers and their friends will receive opportunities for monetary compensation for investment and support of the company. This is a groundbreaking effort in the music industry.
“I’m excited to watch Gringo Gang’s development from a music group from Indianapolis to an advanced competitive record company generating hits and fusing it with new technology,” Quincy “Big Heff” Taylor said.
“We are the dopest fucking thing fans will experience in 2018!” Jmo said joking. “We really love what we do and put our all into the projects to give the fans the best experience possible. From the shows to the music and videos we aim to create high quality shit for the people to rock with! We are a family and our fans are related and on the journey with us. Oh…… and lastly a Gringo is an ‘American'”
To date Gringo Gang have been on tour supporting artists such as Migos, 21 Savage, Montana of 300, Young Dolph, Trippie Redd and more. The group Gringo Gang, has also been booked in New York at the Piano and SXSW at the popular “Beer and Tacos” Stage.
“Most of the concepts we try to develop around our everyday lives. The words we say, the clothes we wear, the lifestyle. We are really different in what we like throughout the group but we all have our own swag and ways of thinking. So we try to mesh those together and give the fans a piece of who we are in these concepts. Our newest project is called The Language because we want to indoctrinate people into our lingo first,” Shawn Ham said.
The first offering from the partnership is the single “Keep Me Going” available via all major outlets.
