Derek Minor premieres his latest single “Astronaut” today on Rapzilla. The song featuring Deraj and Byron Juane is now available everywhere!
On the track produced by OB and DJ Pez, Minor uses astronaut as a metaphor to describe his determination to excel despite hurdles, rapping, “I been feeling like they been trying to hold me down … But everytime I fall I never touch the ground / I keep blasting off like a astronaut.”
Deraj reps for the squad on the second verse and Bryon Juane continues the theme, closing the song with soulful adlibs.
Crime can be viewed as a viable means of survival amid financial hardships, but Reconcile offers an alternative plan on his new single, “Ain’t No Way,” now available for streaming and purchase. Writing from personal experiences, the South Florida rapper penned the track from his forthcoming mixtape during a particular tough time and describes it as the “most emotional song” on the set.
“I remember sitting down and not having money in my pocket, cars broken down, just moved back home to Florida, wife pregnant with twins and things weren't looking good,” he explains. “I knew I had to trust God that he would provide. I know there are people in these shoes every single day. That’s what the song is about.”
Watch the new lyric video from Derek Minor for his new single Fresh Prince!
Derek Minor brings the heat with his new stand alone single “Fresh Prince” available at online retailers today on his Reflection Music Group label.
With ample trombone synths and echoing 808s, Derek’s self-produced track has a nostalgic feel including several references to the 1990s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air starring actor/rapper Will Smith. Additionally, the song title offers clever wordplay and celebrates the blessings of being the son of the king.
Reflection Music Group announces the signing of Miami-based hip hop artist Reconcile to its RMG Amplify division, a label partnership that provides marketing support to established independent artists. The Billboard charting artist released his song “Reckless” on online retailers.
While Reconcile has had a great rapport with co-CEOs Derek Minor and Doc Watson for years, he was also drawn to the partnership because of its support of and commitment to its artists. “I look at Derek and Doc and they are pushing the margins,” he says. “They are taking what they are doing to as many platforms as they can. You can see Derek and Doc lobbying to have songs on huge platforms and you see Derek standing up for the culture and social injustice.”
Speaking on behalf of the company, Watson says RMG is looking forward to working with Reconcile. “Reconcile is a great artist,” he says. “He’s been one of my favorites for a long time. He works hard and puts out great music. Most importantly, he has a message that needs to be heard everywhere.”
One example is Reconcile’s new release, “Reckless,” a redemptive song about the struggle to walk away from a life of crime. The song was inspired by his brother and cousin’s real life jail bids. He explains, “I was looking at their lives and getting those phone calls saying, ‘I’m tired of living reckless. I want to change. I really hear you, but it’s like I’m still lost in this life and have a lot of demons just holding my chest down.’”
Reconcile has found success with each of his previous releases. His 2012 free release, Abandoned Hope, received more than 45,000 downloads while he was still a senior at Rice University where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, Philosophy and Sociology. His debut album Sacrifice reached No. 3 on the iTunes Hip Hop chart and debuted at No. 20 on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums chart. His last set, the Catching Bodies EP, debuted at No. 30 on the Billboard Christian chart.
