Swamp Posse’s SKYXXX takes to the streets of Downtown Orlando to how he feels about the path to become an artist. In particular, he speaks about the general notion that an artist basically has to dumb down his lyrics in order to get noticed in the present state of rap. Sad, but true given the direction rap has gone in the past few years, I can’t really disagree. However, this year seems to be much more promising with lyricism making a considerable comeback.
The camera pans from SKYXXX to Marcellus Juvann, the Houston native taking the game by storm, speaking about his upbringing to clear up the common misconception of what he does for a living. Although, he speaks about coming up in a rough situation around “hoodlums and drug dealers,” the young spitter says that’s never a path that he had to take.
The new video comes from under the direction of none other than Nassacre.
It took quite some time to describe the experience one can have at a Tyla Yaweh show. I’m still not sure if there is a way to describe it other than indescribable. Up and coming artist, Tyla Yaweh, is one of the most hardworking artists in the Central Florida area. Represented by Dope Entertainment, he’s constantly releasing new music and hitting the road to increase the reach of his audience.

After opening up for various artists — including Earl Sweatshirt, Post Malone, and Joey Bada$$, it was finally time for him to perform at his very first headlining show. Opening acts along for the ride included Moe Waveyy, Danny Towers, Marcellus Juvann, John Zoe and Otown Marco.
Yaweh does a bit of storytelling in his music. Whether he’s diving into a crowd of people or singing with a mean guitarist in the background, he’s invoking some crazy feeling that you can’t ignore. It’s easy to fall in love with an artist such as Yaweh, who speaks about his life of once being homeless to his present day of finding a way to make it. In one song in particular, “High School Daze,” from his Hell of A Life EP, he addresses his past struggles over JonDough’s production.
Cash Money Records recording artist Caskey also showed up to support his brother Tyla, celebrating the first show by raging with the crowd. Yaweh’s set consisted of popular songs, “DUI,” “4:44AM,” “Ryda Round,” and a long list of other fan favorites. It became hard to know what to expect next, there might be over twenty people on stage or Yaweh himself might create a mosh pit with whoever wanted to join.
It isn’t easy to predict the set list for a show like this, but guaranteed you’ll have an experience you’ll never forget. The young artist’s catalog gives something to every fan, whether they want to rage or chill out and vibe for the night.
Following up to his critically acclaimed album, The Fall, he recently released two new songs on a set appropriately titled, After The Fall. Marcellus Juvann seems to be receiving much deserved recognition after releasing his personal project lately from larger platforms. In an interview with Pigeons & Planes, he described his music “as his own personal mandate. The chronicle of a young man making his way to reach the masses, meeting all the unavoidable vicissitudes along the way, and addressing them in his music.”
While his body of work is already impressive, he’s just getting started.
Two months after the release of his critically acclaimed project, The Fall, which appeared on several publications and featured on TiDAL, Marcellus Juvann releases two more songs. While he’s not an artist who floods the streets with his material, he’s definitely a quality over quantity type of artist.
Houston’s own Marcellus Juvann releases his 12-track EP, The Fall. Released on November 22nd, Marcellus takes us on a musical journey to close out right before the next year begins. Lyrically sound with a story to tell and a picture to paint, he arrives with a well thought out project beginning with a personal voicemail from his mother.
