Southwest Philadelphia rapper, Shawn Smith released the new visual for his recently released single, “Braggadocious” today. Released during one of the most socially, politically and economically uncertain times in our country, the new visual finds the southwest Philadelphia rapper walking through the neighborhood dropping gems and inspiring hope in the community. The black and white color palette perfectly underscores the boom-bat inspired feel of the Charlie Heat-produced track.

“Braggadocious” is available everywhere now – watch the video here.

With slick bars and witty wordplay, Shawn continues to prove his own as a lyrical heavyweight. After building a local buzz in Philly under the alias Young Savage and continuing the momentum with his 20-min viral freestyle on Philadelphia’s Cosmic Kev radio show leading to a BET Hip Hop Awards cypher appearance, Shawn reclaimed his own name for his latest autobiographical debut, SINK OR SWIM: A SHAWN SMITH STORY. Known for his ferocious freestyles and slick punchlines, Smith’s forthcoming music zooms in on unapologetic, big-picture storytelling, highlighting his Southwest Philly upbringing. Providing perspective on his journey without pious intentions, Smith has carefully fostered that balance – equal parts sharp-tongued and warm-hearted – providing a refreshing perspective on the too common realities of growing up on the southwest side of Philly.

Philly’s acclaimed wordsmith D Prime 215 releases “10,000 Flowers” off his EP titled ‘Forever in a Day.’ The single is produced by Johann Sebastian with cuts by DJ Soulbuck.

D Prime 215 never disappoints when it comes to quick-witted punchlines, genius wordplay, and an impeccable flow. “10,000 Flowers” is no exception. “I’m a renegade when I hear the beat it’s time to mutilate, put the blade to my vein.”

The track is fueled with about four minutes of lyrical jewels and gems that encompass Prime’s personal truths, booth profession shine, and an empowering lifestyle. Johann Sebastian provides a 70’s vibe with funky bass while DJ Soulbuck swarms in to heighten the paragon with his signature ‘fix your face’ cuts and scratches.

10,000 hours can lead to mastery. One thing we should master is giving love to those who love us. 10,000 Flowers. One Flower Per Hour. Love with the intent of mastering it. Wake Up. Press Play. Love Yours. One. – D Prime 215
