Soulja Boy and HoodTrophy Bino release the “LA County” single. The single chronicles Soulja Boy and Bino’s history together as the two artists met while serving time and soon bonded over a shared love of music. “LA County” compares bleak images of jail with vibrant snapshots of life after each artist’s release. The beats on the track are melodic, airy, and atmospheric, offering depth to the memories Soulja Boy and Bino describe.

After befriending Soulja Boy over a bag of hot cheetos during their time spent locked up, it didn’t take long for the two musicians to become natural collaborators. After Bino’s release, Soulja Boy signed him with his Stacks On Deck Money Gang (S.O.D.M.G.) label where “LA County” was soon released.

(Audio) Elijah the Boy – “EGO” @ElijahTheBoy_

Published

After dropping his 2023 iTunes #1 EP ‘First Summer Without You’ and a string of single releases in 2024, the South Bronx, NY native Elijah The Boy readies us for summer with new heat. His newest offering “EGO” is a vibrant single that switches up the tone of his recent drops.

With a distinct blend of hip-hop, Jersey club drums, and Brazilian Phonk, the Puerto Rican lyricist flexes his powerful delivery over the alluring, rhythmic record that is intricate and aggressive all at once. Elijah explains that the production on “EGO” features heavy influence from the Bronx club scene, which undoubtedly showcases his outstanding level of sonic versatility and inventiveness.

“My new single is inspired by the hip-hop/Brazilian phonk music that I started hearing in the NY nightlife scene. I’ve always been a fan of music from different genres whether it was Latin, Afro beat, or Brazilian Phonk, and am attracted to the cadences they use and pockets they are able to find within the beat. I wanted to create a song that made people dance and feel good and forget about the problems with catchy bars and word play that was fun. One day I was in the studio with my producer Navi Beats and my Engineer Mixed By Auden, and we were brainstorming ideas. I thought of blending Brazilian Phonk with my usual sound. We ended up making this fun, catchy braggadocious record that in the end was only right to titles it ‘EGO’” – Elijah The Boy
