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

The other day I read one of the other writers here say something about never having had writer's block and bragging about it like a little twat. Being a writer and saying you’ve never had writer’s block is like a teenager saying they’ve never had a pimple. The other day I saw a young lad with a huge pimple ON TOP of another pimple. It was disgusting. It made me so annoyed. I told him to look the other way and then I pounced on him and tried to pop it (or them). I managed to pop only one but it was really satisfying. 

But where were we? Ah yes, the newbie who says he’s never had writer’s block. I’m sure he’s in the writer’s chat room and is reading this article live as I'm writing it right now but I’ll continue talking about him anyway. Aha, here come the egg plant emojis telling me I'm a "you know what". I knew it, he's here. I’ve read many of his articles and I’m certain he’s had it many times, he was just too much of a newbie to know he was having it – and yes, that’s possible. It’s possible to be absolutely wrong and not even know it. Like when I used to tell Jehovah’s Witnesses they were full of shit and give them a sachet of laxatives before slamming the door and going back to sleep on Sunday mornings. I thought they were f*ing with me when they told me I had to kick a bucket first and then wet someone's beak a little bit before I could meet MY OWN lord and saviour, so I thought it was only right I f*cked with them back. Right? Well, as it turns out, nope! That's childish. But let’s not get into that now mkay. Anyway, that’s that as per that – every writer has had writer’s block. I don’t care if you are William Shakespeare or Jane Austen; or that Harry Potter lady, what’s her name again? I know, who gives a f* right? After what she said about the ... em.. em... The ... Okay I'm lost for words, they've changed their names more times than Puff Daddy and I don't want to offend them by saying the wrong one. But you know who I mean. Let's call them the Teletubbies (because everyone love the Teletubbies) for now so no one knows who we're talking about when we say it mkay? Shhh! Don't tell anyone. I mean, gays have been calling their butt holes p*ssies since the dawn of time, that's not news. And who cares? That’s nothing to get upset or jealous about. Just take care of yours like you’ve been doing, and just deal with it children's book lady, m-kay? There’s so much going on in the world right now, let’s move on before I hit a backlash sweet spot. Wait, have I hit it? I hope not. Let’s move on QUICK!

I hate to tell you this but I feel like I should be honest with you. I’m totally hung over right now, and I’m not sure if I might say some things that may offend you so I’ll try to keep this brief and segue into the music news story of the day as smoothly and as comfortably for you as possible. I thought I had writer’s block in the morning then I remember I was at this wild party last night and I totally got wasted. To cut a long story short, I took the train to work this morning and I’ve just downloaded this “find my car” app thingy because I did the right thing and didn’t drive home last night after the party – mainly because I couldn’t find my car, but whatever. I hate to be the one to say it but London’s South Eastern railway network needs to step up their game. That was the slowest journey I’ve ever had my entire life. At some point I felt like getting out onto the tracks and pushing the train so it could move a little quicker, good lord it was annoying. I’m not proud of it but I totally passed out owing to the build up of rage and all the alcohol and stuff that was inside me. I woke up ages later and we were only at the next stop. There was a homeless man sitting right opposite me when I woke up. He was looking straight at me, and he was eating my sandwich and using my laptop. I was FURIOUS. I didn’t see the laptop at the time but he was looking down at his laps every now and again and fiddling around. I thought he was probably just having an erection or something. There was a table in-between us so I couldn't see what was going on. I screamed at him “WTF are you doing? That’s my sandwich!!”. And he responded calmly, as if I was bothering him, “I thought you were done with it”. I screamed back at him, “It wasn’t even opened yet!!!”. He said “Yeah I know, I had to open it obviously”. And then he paused mid-bite, apologised and handed it back to me, "Here, you want it back? I'm sorry".  I was so steamed. I smacked it away, crossed my arms and pouted like a sissy. I didn't know what to do, I wasn't about to fight a dirty homeless man. As he stood up to leave the train at the next stop I noticed my laptop and said “You f*cker!! That’s my laptop too!!”. He said “No, it’s a tablet”. I wasn’t gonna get into an argument with him, I just grabbed it “Gimme by my tablet you bastard”. He left. I suddenly realised we had been the only ones in the carriage all along. I wiped it down furiously with some antibacterial wipes. 

When I opened my tablet I was shocked to discover he had written this article and stopped at the end of the previous paragraph where I started telling the story. It was amazing when I read it and I didn’t change a thing. That wasn’t the first time I met my lord and saviour. The first time I met him, I was in Jamaica sitting under a palm tree burning a really big bush, but that’s another story. Prior to party, and the whole incident after, I remember leaving the office early in the day suspecting I was coming down with writer’s block – I was. So I did what I’d normally do when I come down with it - absolutely nothing. I sat down in a comfortable chair and watched the clock tick for a while, and then it came to me. The message I have been commissioned by the universe to deliver to you today, which you’ve been eagerly anticipating even without knowing it was here. And it is this: you’re only ever right at the right time. If you suck, buy a watch, and watch it really closely – your life could change. Personally, I never wear a watch. But then again I don’t suck at all, in fact I’m awesome. I had writer’s block because I was writing on a Sunday afternoon when I knew I was supposed to be having a happy ending massage and eating Skittles, in preparation for the week ahead. Oops!! I meant a spa day, obviously; and eating Skittles. I was doing it at the wrong time so it wasn't happening. Sometimes I sneak into the office when no one is there to get a little extra work in so I can get ahead of my competitors. I know it’s a bad habit but I’m working on it. So there you have it, my message for you today – “You are only ever right at the right time”. I don’t know why the universe wanted you to know that but I’m sure you know. Now let’s get right down to this exciting music news story I’ve been waiting to tell you about. This is so awesome, you’re gonna love it.

He's without doubt one of the most successful and most influential underground hip hop artists out of  North Carolina, USA in over a decade, and Yung Rackz is not slowing down or stopping anytime soon. Taking the region by storm with the release of the critically acclaimed single “Back In The Day” several years ago, Rackz has persistently blazed a trail and is ranked number one by most, if not all self-respecting hip hop music critics and fans who know anything about rap music. Defying all expectations every single time, the Winston Salem sensation has over 25 critically acclaimed records under his belt including more than 9 albums. He was even co-signed by legendary award-winning hip hop artist Jadakiss back in 2020 when he released the massive “Trapademic” mixtape which has become one of his most talked about records to date and is still getting a lot of love even after 2 subsequent, also highly acclaimed full length albums – “Lost Tapes” in 2022; and his latest “Blessing Out The Trap”, a massive 17 track album which was released back in January and is causing pandemonium everywhere. 

On the 11th of March, Rackz released the music video for “Back 2 Da Block”, which sits in position number 12 of his latest album “Blessing Out The Trap” and which continues to receive rave reviews and abundant radio airplay. The new music video is available to stream and download on YouTube and other music video streaming platforms, as well as selected indie music promotion platforms. But don’t worry, you don’t need to go anywhere. Just scroll down below to watch it right here right now.

Okay! So there you have it. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it.

I’d like to wish you a very joyous, prosperous and harmonious day. See you tomorrow. And don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.
