Jordan Hollywood releases visual for “Leave Me”

Along with the arrival of his FINALLY EP, Quality Control artist Jordan Hollywood also dropped off accompanying visuals for his “LEAVE ME,” found on the 13-track outing.

The song, like most of the tracks, finds Jordan going dolo save for appearances from Lil Baby and Ronny J. Other than that, listeners get the opportunity to hear the South Florida native’s range across the board—from addictive hook curation on “LET ME FIND OUT” to introspective lyricism on “LEAVE ME.”

“Coach and Pee didn’t want me doing no features, they think my talent speaks for itself,” he explains of QC’s decision to have go it virtually alone.

In the clip that accompanies “LEAVE ME,” you can catch Hollywood and his girl sticking tighter in a dramatic gunfight as he implores her to never leave his side.

Chicago Artist SMB Stunna Releases “Lifestyle” Music Video Directed By Will Gates

“Lifestyle” is the fifth released music video from SMB Stunna’s debut mixtape, Born Stunna which released September 17th on all streaming platforms. On “Lifestyle”, SMB Stunna reflects on securing the bag and his first time visiting Miami.

SMB Stunna, an independent rapper from Chicago, is redefining how the world views trap music. Coming out of the West side of Chicago in the Henry Horner projects, SMB Stunna, witnessed his mother work multiple jobs to support their home while his father faced drug charges. With this type of upbringing, it isn’t a surprise that the rapper turned to the streets. Instead of being “trapped” in his situation, SMB Stunna is using his way with words to create the life he’s always envisioned.

Stunna has always been musically inclined and showcased his lyrical abilities on major outlets
like Fox News at just 10 years old. Flash forward to present day, the rapper boasts over 1
million views on World Star Hip Hop for his visuals to his most recent track “Ric Flair”. He also
recently released the Hypno Carlito (Lil Durk – OTF) assisted “Big Business” that’s gaining
traction online. Stunna Dre’s defines his sound as “ahead of its time” often reflecting on his own
story. “People should listen because it’s real,” says the rapper. “I’m not here to portray an
image. I’m here to be myself and rap about situations I’ve been through”.

SMB Stunna balances running his own label, Street Made Brothers, and releasing new music. He
released his debut full-length project titled Born Stunna hosted by DJ Bandz Monday, September 17th to all streaming platforms. The project features appearances from Hypno Carlito, Mikey Dollaz, LBanditGang, and production from Luhtim, DJ Mil Ticket & more.
