Peace and love.
Ricky France – CODE
We haven’t seen Ricky France since the release of his single, “One Way Or Another” back in November. As we approach the end of April, France couldn’t let the month end without releasing a new visual.
Teaming up with Brillo and Vanni Allan Poe, who just released his single “Bachelor” last month, France drops his latest visual, “CODE.” Inspired by the 1995-film, New Jersey Drive, the Bonvida// Lyme Lyte TV-directed clip finds Ricky playing Midget and Vanni channeling Jason.
If you haven’t seen the film, you can get an idea of what happens by watching “Code” above.
MASS Mondays: Dungeon Jane, GooseDinero, MOSA, Deon Chase
It’s the last MASS. Mondays of the month, the sun is shining and artists are gearing up for the second quarter of 2021. This time around I decided to feature a couple new faces, as well as face you probably have seen on the site in awhile.
Check it out below!

MOSA- ‘Heartbreak University’
Up and coming artist Heartbreak MOSA and definitely the sneak attack you didn’t see coming. Signed to Jas Prince’s Young Empire Music Group and moving to Houston in 2018, the Lawrence, MA native dropped his debut album Heartbreak University last month and has surely made some noise.
A follow-up to his 2019 mixtape, Heartbreak Season, the multifaceted artist described his latest effort as making the best of his situation. “For this project specifically everything was fairly new to me, on top of that going through my lil “heartbreak” situation, all the different feelings I had going through the process of making this album is actually in the album.”
With 13 tracks on the project and no features, Mosa has already gained the attention of Drake, Quavo, Popcaan, Nicky Jam, Kaash Paige and more.
Stream Heartbreak University below.
Dungeon Jane – ‘SPECTRUM’
Last month, Dungeon Jane released her debut project, SPECTRUM. Having a sound different from most R&B artists out the state, Dungeon Jane embarks on a journey of rediscovering herself – defining what love means to her and not letting it pass her by, knowing when something is a season, keeping her guard up, and learning to accept an apology she’ll never get.
Stream the project and check out her latest visual “Ode To You” above.
GooseDinero – ‘Money Fetish’ ft. Dun Dealy
After dropping the 2020 project, All About Dinero, GooseDinero returns with a visual to his latest effort, “Money Fetish.” With assistance from frequent collaborator Dun Dealy, it’s one thing that is never negotiable and that’s the cash – no minimum wage.
Deon Chase – ‘Wild Wild Best’
After dropping his “Rev Up Freestyle” last month, Deon Chase keeps the momentum going with his latest offering, “Wild Wild Best.”
Over the production of Dionso, the Boston finds himself in a compromising, yet satisfying predicament including getting involved with a new flame, who may be crazy but her word is bond. Inspired to record the track while in Los Angeles, Chase just wants someone to ride wit him if they’re for it.
“Wild Wild Best’ is a follow-up to Chase’s 2019-project, Sunset Blues, which featured a lone contribution from Kimana.
Stream “Wild Wild Best” below.
Sylus Gambino Links Up with $hayBand$, Gio Dee and Eway Nef for “That’s A Reach”
When the pandemic hit last March, Sylus Gambino had just released his first single, “Kill or Be Killed” featuring 8 Zipp, Vanni Allan Poe and Kam’Geez. Though most artists feared what was to come their way, Gambino was not phased. The NNCHVLNT president went on to not only promote the record but took advantage of the “Stay At Home” order by kicking off the #KillOrBeKilledChallenge on social media.
With the record garnering over 100k streams on Spotify, Gambino decided to take things up a notch and made his way to Atlanta alongside his label to shoot the official video for his second single, “Down For Me” featuring NNCHVLNT’s own Vanni Allan Poe and 26 Rari, as well as platinum-selling Atlanta artist T.K. Kravitz, most notable his contribution to Lil Durk‘s “Homebody” which also featured Gunna. Produced by Humbeats, the visual has amassed 77k+ views on Youtube.
Now kicking off his 2021 takeover, Gambino returns with some heavy hitters for his brand new single, “That’s A Reach.” Featuring Shooterz Muzik Machine’s first lady, $hayBand$, who is doing numbers with her record, “No Features,” as well as Gio Dee (who recently dropped his “Plunder” Freestyle with Polo Summers) and NNCHVLNT’s Eway Nef, whose debut single, “On Me” continues to amass views on Youtube, everyone gets their time to shine on the Mykel Forever-produced track.
“The purpose of this record was to officially break Nef as an NNCHVLNT artist,” saidTrippy, NNCHVLNT’s manager. “We had the first two records which featured Vanni on the hooks and the second record with Rari on the verse, so this time we felt like being intentional with giving him his time to shine and introduce himself.”
Trippy continued with how $hayBand$ & Gio Dee got on the track. “Shay got into the picture because as we all know she’s the First Lady of Shooters Muzik and has been arguably one of the most consistent female artists from the city in 2020 and continuing throughout 2021. Gio Dee was a no-brainer when it comes to thinking of top-tier artistry in Boston. We knew he could set the tone for any record. But once I told the producer I was looking to get Gio Dee on a record a light bulb went off above his head and he sent over a beat he felt literally catered to Gio Dee’s swagger. In other words, sugar, spice, and everything nice or whatever they said.”
With brothers 509APHAROAH and Vinny hitting us with an electrifying performance throughout the HighAssMoney-directed clip, Trippy also gave us an explanation of the vision behind the video:
“The direction for the video was just us looking to do something a little different than we’ve done,” he said. “Getting into doing our own treatments has been so dope, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out how you anticipated. For this video, luckily, that wasn’t the case. The intent was to entertain our audience. The hook has a cool bop and makes you want to dance so that was the purpose of the dancers. I remembered the energy I felt after watching a Fabolous and Chris brown video called Flipmode and I’m like yeah I just want the video to be as fun as that looked on screen.”
“That’s A Reach” will appear on Gambino’s forthcoming project, Everything Earned.

MASS. Mondays: Bia Javier, G Fredo, Wave, AK(CTCG), Cassh Cartel, BTL Flee
It’s March, Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel are out, the weather seems to be warming up, and we’re getting our $1,400 stimmy. Sounds like a great Monday to me. This week’s MASS. Mondays is rather jam-packed, but I couldn’t bring myself to cut it down, lol. Enjoy!

EP: Biajavier – Motions
After giving us “Loving Me” last month, Bia Javier returns with her with 5-track EP, Motions. Always seemingly releasing music at the time your girl needs it most, Motions finds the Lawrence songstress running away from love and the bullshit while finding herself again and knowing her worth.
“I want to take people on a journey when they hear this project, that people are able to actually feel what Motions is and go through the motions with me,” Biajavier told miixtapechiick.com. “Every record is different but cohesive, I believe doing that for this project was super important.”
The project features contributions from EightyEight, J. Rose and Jona Ferreira.
G Fredo – “Go Down” & “In & Out”
Though he’s behind bars, the HSM team is holding down G Fredo and has graced us with new music from the Boston native’s catalog. Serving as a follow-up to the January release, Only The 3rd Chapter, G Fredo’s team unleashes two tracks titled, “Go Down” and “In & Out.” On both records, Fredo reminds us to never question his name or what he’s about ’cause when it’s time for shit to go down, best believe he’s ready and down for whatever.
Wave – New Strand Of The Opps (Video)
In celebration of his mixtape release, Capone, Wave returns with the official video to his latest record, “New Strand Of The Opps.” Wave comes out the gate swinging, confronting rappers who’s stolen his flow and reminds us he’s been the one to pop them thangs with no hesitation. “New Strand Of The Opps” is a follow-up to Wave’s December-release, “Hood Logo.”
AK(CTCG) – VS Everybody (Video)
Even though this dropped in January, I couldn’t just scroll past it and not acknowledge it when I did. I don’t know much about Cream Gang, but judging by this visual, I’d say they’re about business and don’t give a damn whether your for them or not so they get a co-sign in my book and if you don’t, believe me, AK(CTCG)‘s “VS Everybody” should give you an idea.
Cassh Cartel – falling (Video)
After teaming up with KingFrom98 and B. Blazo on “Heartless,” Cassh Cartel returns with his latest offering, “Falling.” Directed by m9visuals, Cassh Cartel brings a cinematic visual different from his previous releases where he’s being dragged by a woman in the snow, leaving a bloody trail. Throughout the record, Cartel feels like his girl is being dishonest, as she isn’t picking up his phone calls, leaving him feeling cold and lonely over the Sunny Laurent-produced track.
The visual itself is just crazy. Watch below.
BTL Flee – Don’t Even Brag
Strolling through the streets of Los Angeles, BTL Flee returns with the official video to his latest single, “Don’t Even Brag.” Set to appear on his forthcoming project, BTL Flee is living the lavish life but doesn’t feel the need to brag as he feels like bragging just means you’re not used to having it. A follow-up to his October-release, “Moon,” watch him in “Don’t Even Brag” below.
