New Video: Brudda Haitian – “Max Out” (from A3C Volume 7)

Born in raised in the streets of Warner Robins, Georgia, Brudda Haitian jumped head-first into the rap game at 16 years-old, selling his first mixtape in his high school hallways. However, it wasn’t until his hit single, “Gone Bad,” was released that people across the country began to notice. As Pigeons and Planes explained, “‘Gone Bad’ has been shutting down clubs all year and now it’s starting to expand outside of the region.” His 2017 mixtape, I Am the New Dope, earned Brudda accolades and heightened his ever-growing presence as a force in the southern hip-hop scene. Today Brudda Haitian shares the darkly euphoric video for “Max Out,” a hard-hitting banger produced by Deraj Global, featured on A3C Volume 7.  The video was shot on location in Atlanta by Brann and juxtaposes shadowy and vibrant imagery in one visual.

SD Unveils the Title Track From His Highly-Anticipated Full-Length Project, Pay Attention, Set For Release On April 6th

March 7, 2018 - Chicago, IL - SD has unveiled the title track from his highly- full-length project, Pay Attention, which is set for release on April 6th through Truly Blessed / iHipHop Distribution.  The Trauma Tone produced single, “Pay Attention,” is the follow-up to SD’s highly successful 2017 tracks  “Sacrifice” and “From The Bottom,” for which both tracks and videos have garnered millions of streams/views to date.  “Pay Attention” like the previous two tracks is available for streaming on all services (Link Below).

SD’s influence and inspiration comes from the uninviting, bleak reality of the Chicago streets, where he, Chief Keef, the late Fredo Santana and Lil Reese, built a movement that continues to influence a generation and have a ripple effect through the hip-hop genre.  At a young age, SD made his mark by creating a niche style of hipster urban music, including an element of cool kid/gangsta rap and was prominently featured in videos from Chief KeefDanny Brown, Riff Raff and more.

SD would establish himself through a string of highly-successful and critically acclaimed mixtapes, particularly the three volume mixtape series, Life of a Savage, Life of a Savage 2 and 3.  In 2014 SD made his debut on iHipHop Distribution, with the revered album Truly Blessed, which changed the game for rappers from Chicago, as SD introduced his own sound in order to achieve personal milestones he set for himself.  Truly Blessed would receive praise from outlets including Pitchfork and the Fader, while Fact Mag would rank it as a top album of the year. In 2015, SD released the fourth installment in the Life of a Savage mixtape series as well as the Just The Beginning mixtape. In retrospect, SD says that his driving force in his life is his daughter, who shows him a higher purpose.

SD’s new full-length project Pay Attention will be available worldwide on April 6th via Truly Blessed / iHipHop Distribution
