“For the ones that hustle in silence” #TellThemWait – Label NYC
The evolution of music has come full circle introducing the new generation to the original creators of Hip Hop. Utilizing hits formulated in the 90’s to cultivate what seems new to many today, brings memories to those who were there forcing us to recognize and give respect to the people who helped pave the way – those like Label NYC.
Sharing the same birthplace as Hip Hip, New York City became the stomping grounds for the young influential mind of Label NYC. Being inspired by local artists from labels such as Bad Boy, Roc a Fella, Dipset and artists like the Fugees, Label NYC created the magic of his music by mixing the roots of Hip Hop with the cultural island sounds of Haiti. His musical successes led him to opening performances for Rick Ross and Lupe Fiasco. Label has also had collaborations with Hitmaka
Now with a new project at hand we can only sit back and anxiously wait to see what new innovations Label NYC will surprise us with next. He strives for greatness and you can bet he will exhibit just that!

You’d be hard pressed to find a lyricist more experienced or more dope than Ninth Ward original Koan Kenpachi. Born and raised in New Orleans, Koan has become a staple in rap music.
He recently dropped “Weirdo”, the first single off his upcoming EP “Supremium”. If you’ve ever heard Koan, then you know the power behind his music. His lyrics are quite impressive and his delivery is impeccable.
The song is available for download and streaming anywhere music is sold. Visuals are available on YouTube.
Fre$h is back with his first single/visual, “Yea Yeah” off his upcoming album #NothingChangedButTheName which drops December 3rd.
“When I thought about the video for this song I was instantly upset that my Porsche got totaled and wouldn’t be able to get a cameo. I reached out to my boy, Matt Leblanc, who owns a dealership with a bunch of old school Porsche’s and he allowed me to capture scenes there. I came up with the idea to stage a robbery using the concept from the movie “Point Break” wearing ex-president masks and to keep it fun we went with nerf guns instead of actual ones. With this being one of my favorites off the album and the first single it has to set the tone of what’s to be expected. #NothingChangedButTheName”-Fre$h
