The Atlanta rapper Bktherula links with fellow emerging ATL talent Destroy Lonely for the new single “Forever Pt. 2 (Jezebel).” The buoyant track is accompanied by a cinematic video that finds the collaborators in combat—teams of color-coordinated women with heavy-duty water guns congregate in the woods for a playful battle
Atlanta’s favorite rage rapper Bktherula unveils a booming new take on “Through 2 U,” featuring South Florida’s Ski Mask the Slump God. A certified heater, “Through 2 U” — a highlight from 2021’s Love Blackproject — was already Bk at her finest. This time, the 19-year-old’s thrashing, assertive blitzes meet Ski Mask’s breakneck flow over the rattling PerryVsTheWrld-produced beat.
Rising Atlanta rapper Bktherula releases “Keep Da K” and “Coupe,” a pair of intoxicating new songs laced with opiate flows, quick-fire flexes, and all the confidence of a blossoming artist.
Coated in sleek, ambient sounds, “Keep Da K” (produced by Lean Sama) finds Bk merging her customary nonchalant delivery with casual menace. “You cannot fucking play with me,” she warns. “BK, I keep the K with me.” If “Keep Da K” is pointed, then “Coupe” (produced by Simmy Auto) is an exercise in the atmosphere. Featuring muted keys, some distorted vocals, and scattered reminiscences, the impressionistic trap song floods the senses, providing a soundtrack designed for getting lost in your thoughts.

Rising Atlanta rapper Bktherula just released her psychedelic and color-drenched world with Love Black on Warner Records. Today she reveals the video for standout track “IDK What To Tell You,” and tonight Bk lets loose with an intimate yet high-energy performance at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn- doors at 6pm! It’s her first release since last year’s buzzed-about mixtape, Nirvana, and Bk is ready to ascend to stardom as one of the newest leaders of the underground. Listen to Love BlackHERE.
“IDK What To Tell You” is a wavy interpolation of Mac DeMarco’s “On The Level.” Produced by both Mac and Bk, the indie sound infused with alternative R&B is dreamy and sonically soothing. In the video, Bk’s carefree spirit and youthful glow take center stage as she fantasizes over an unsuspecting love interest.
Today, rising Atlanta rapper Bktherula returns with her ominous, intense Matt Ox-featuring single, “Placement,” via Warner Records. The track showcases Bk’s freewheeling flow as she spits venom at critics and anyone who would tell her what to do over soaring synths and pounding drums. The track also arrives around a futuristic, stylish video starring both rappers. Watch the video HERE. Bk is also sharing the news that her new EPLove Blackis coming October 22—pre-order/pre-save HERE—and that she’s joining Lil Tecca for his Tecca Loves You tour, which kicks off in Boston on February 14, 2022.
“Placement” seems tailormade to turn any party into a rager. Bk storms through the song with relentless aggression. With her haunting voice echoing throughout, there isn’t a moment of dead air. “You a little green like the color teal,” she taunts—just one of many razor-sharp one-liners, a skill she’s honed across her quickly growing catalog. Matt Ox doesn’t disappoint either—the young Philly-born rapper matches Bk’s energy, sharing his own playful boasts and nimble flows. In the video, the duo hang out in a futuristic Chinatown full of holograms and flying cars, and flashing lights. It’s striking and stylish, like the song itself.

Rising Atlanta rapper Bktherula returns today with new single “Not Wock” via Warner Records. The track showcases Bk’s unparalleled energy and charismatic charm as she spits self-assured mantras over futuristic production. At just under two minutes, “Not Wock” is an addictive invitation into Bk’s world Listen HERE. Watch the retro arcade-inspired video.
Atlanta rap mystic Bktherula ascends to the astral plane with the release of her meditative new mixtape Nirvana on Warner Records. Executively produced by Digital Nas, Nirvana finds the 18-year-old talking smack and dripping poetry over abstract soundscapes. The dreamy set cements Bktherula as one of today’s most exciting young talents—a modern ATLien who can float to the heavens and open up a mosh pit, all with the power of her voice.
Bktherula is best known for wavy, genre-melding anthems like “Tweakin’ Together,” and here she continues to perfect that sound while broadening her range. Last week, she released the multi-dimensional instant gratis track “okok/depressing.” “Ill” feels unmoored like a spaceship full of synths, while harder cuts like the glitchy “MORE” finds Bktherula spinning out into a half dozen different flows. “MIND FUCK” is a cavernous banger that could’ve come out of early-decade Chicago drill, and then there are off-kilter, gorgeous songs like “light” and “GANGO” that draw from alt-rock and hyperpop. It’s a bright, eclectic canvas for Bktherula.
Today, hypnotic Atlanta rapper Bktherula releases the official video for her pillowy single “Summer” via Warner Records. Like the song itself, the visual embodies the last days of the season perfectly: Bktherula and her friend float along a sea of meadowlands, golden afros fluttering like dandelions. The entire work is a testament to the 18-year-old’s ability to conjure whole moods and worlds with simple but vibrant songs, a skill that has carried her to the forefront of rap’s new melodic wave.
After the field, Bktherula hits a laundromat where the machines spin in time with the beat and her vocals sit on top light as a feather. “Everything’s right,” she sighs. And then, time slows, reverses, vanishes, and “Summer” is chopped and screwed into an entirely new beast—a billowing slow-burn for those cool August nights. The season’s changing; so is the music.
Atlanta’s mesmerizing artist to watch, Bktherula, unveils her resolute new single “Admit It”via Warner Records. The 18-year-old rapper, singer, and songwriter showcases her effortless flows over a futuristic beat, propelled by 808 drums and synthetic instrumentals. Get it HERE.
Bktherula shares the inspiration behind “Admit It,” stating,“Some of y’all be lying. I’m not about to lie and say I don’t miss this girl if I do just to look cool.” The new song arrives on the heels of her hypnotic single “Summer,” further setting the stage for her debut project, which is slated for release in October. There’s more to come from this rising triple threat!
Attracting widespread acclaim and asserting herself as a 2020 artist to watch, Atlanta rapper, singer, and songwriter Bktherula reveals a new single entitled “Summer” and announces her signing to Warner Records. This marks her first release under the new deal. Get it HERE. When speaking about song, Bktherula shares, “Summer is not so much seen as a season in this song, but a state of mind. Everything is better in the summer.”
On the track, Bktherula’s voice sails over tweaked strings, trap-style claps, and an otherworldly beat. Hypnotic harmonies take hold as she showcases the scope of her signature style. The 17-year-old is heating up the season with “Summer,” and she’s working on her debut project for Warner Records. Be on the lookout for the music video soon!
