Music industry update | North Carolina, USA | Indie artist, Yung Rackz

In today’s overcluttered music industry, with so many up-and-coming artists emerging daily, and major record labels now signing on average two new artists every day in order to maintain their market share and eliminate the risk of being toppled by indie labels and independent artists and bands, it could be very difficult to get heard or even make a name in the business independently. But the same rules apply now as decades ago - and consistency is key. Anyone can make a hit record but very few can do it over and over and over and over till the point where it looks easy and everyone thinks they can do it. Of all the genres and subgenres of music, hip hop seems to have taken the biggest blow in terms of clutter and competition. There are more emerging hip hop artists than in any other genre, and consequently its main stage could potentially be the most overcluttered. But amidst all the madness and the cut-throat competition that exists there are still a few artists that are single-handedly making a name for themselves. North Carolina’s Yung Rackz has been blazing a trail independently for several years now, during which he made his name as one of the South Eastern region of the United States’ most highly revered underground rappers. He also has more underground club and chart-worthy records than many emerging hip hop artists in the US as a whole according to many critics. Since the release of “Back In The Day”, the track that put his name on the map back in 2012/13, he has returned with consistently better and better records and stayed in a lane of his own with his unique blend of melodic, mildly melancholic rap and introspective beats. After several years thriving underground, it’s common for many rappers to bow to popular demand and change to a more “pop” sound for mass appeal, but not Rackz. His style is so exciting and unique that when his career peaked at an all time high back in July when he announced that his new album, “Trapademic” was being hosted by rap legend Jadakiss of the popular ‘90s hip hop group, The L.O.X, his sound and style were just as pristine as they were when he made his debut. Just over 3 months after the release of the album, Jadakiss has announced that he’ll be co-signing the Winston-Salem underground hip hop star and taking him under his wing. “Trapademic“, the new album with Jadakiss is available to stream and download on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Amazon Music, Deezer and all popular digital music retail, download and streaming services; as well as selected independent music and mixtape promotion platforms like Spinrilla.
