Happy August! Took some time off from MASS. Monday for spiritual maintenance, but we’re back. It’s been quite the summer, as we continue to deal with the pandemic and cases start to rise again, but when in doubt, music heals. So without further ado, here are some new faces on MASS. Monday.

ShayBand$ – ‘Distant’
The first lady of Shooterz Muzik, ShayBand$ recently dropped her first single on the label -, a deep cut titled, “Distant.” Directed by @VRTUPRESENTS, the multi-faceted artist spits about isolating herself from others and focusing on her bag before the visual switches over, changing the vibe quickly to more brass-backed trap record titled, “Famous.”
It’s clear that Shay Band$ is a threat that the city didn’t see coming.
Red Shaydez – ‘They Call Me Shaydez’
Releasing her album Feel The Aura last week, Red Shaydez teased fans with an animated visual to her LP-cut, “They Call Me Shaydez.” Only 70 seconds in length, the record serves as a reintroduction to those familiar with her (and the newcomers) on why her name is her name and the confidence she carries with it.
The Kid – ‘Yeah’ ft. Michael Christmas & Blanco Black
I had the pleasure of attending the virtual listening event for The Kid’s forthcoming project, The Kid and Friends, and you wouldn’t believe how many people this producer has on the album. A hidden gem in the state, The Kid treats everyone to the first single off The Kid and Friends titled, “Yeah” featuring Michael Christmas and Blanco Black.
Fun Fact: He created the visual himself.
Let us know what you think!
Y Gizzle – Whole Lotta Pt. 1 Ft. Ricky Mazarati
Dropping “Free Smoke” just two weeks ago, Y Gizzle shows no signs of stopping. Revisiting his latest project Demon Time for the official video of his Ricky Mazarati-assisted track, “Whole Lotta Pt. 1,” the duo presents us with a sharp delivery and is surely bringing heat.
Watch the video from the Trottie Gang rapper below.
KT Cuatro, 8 Zipp & Side Street Capo – Trapp’D
Shooter Muzik Machine have never been the ones to produce lackluster content. After Shay Band$ dropped her first single, “Distant,” KT Cuatro, 8 Zipp & Side Street Capo followed right behind with the official video to their single, “Trapp’D.” Set to appear on their forthcoming compilation, More Than Muzik Vol. 1, their latest effort features the collective’s signature gritty sound and serves as a reminder to the opps that they’re always around if you’re trying to find them. #FREEKT
Video: AR Godda 15 & Germ Shockii – ‘Classical / 2 Wise Men Pt. 2’
Linking up with Meechiee Columbia last month on “Big Dawg,” AR Gooda 15 returns alongside Germ Shockii for his latest offering, “Classical.”
Serving as a warning to their enemies, AR Godda 15 & Germ Shockii have always been about the beef and gunplay and suggest that you stay in your lane. Directed by FNS Films, the visual switches from “Classical,” to Germ Shockii’s 2 Wise Men Part Two, a sequel to his 2013-track “2 Wise Men” off his Far To Kind mixtape.
Video: Mar’ve – ‘Trust Nobody’
After giving us “Important” last month, Mar’ve returned with a new visual titled, “Trust Nobody.”
Over the production of MagicOnTheBeat and TrenchGotGame, Mar’ve lays out the numerous reasons why he trusts no one while giving us advice on why we shouldn’t either.
Embarking another chapter of his life, Mar’ve gives us insight on being let down by those closest to him which has made him who he is today, but it’s also a reminder that he’s not the one to sleep on.
MASS. Mondays: Cincinnati Rose, Shay Bandz, Vanni, K.I.L.
It’s the last Monday of the month already, which means we’re closer to nice weather. As February comes to a close, it’s only right that I bless you with some new heat that’s dropped in the past week. Check out new music from Cincinnati Rose, Shay Bandz, Vanni, and K.I.L. below.
$hay Band$ – ‘Famous’
After bringing us “No Features” back in January, Shay Bandz returns with her highly anticipated visual, “Famous.” Originally teased after the release of her August-single, “Distant,” fans, including myself, have been patiently waiting for the release of this video. Serving as a follow-up to “No Features“, “Famous” features footage from the artist’s 20th birthday and simply reminds us why she’s the first lady of Shooterz Music Machine. Her words are lethal and the haters just wish they could be her.
K.I.L. – NO I.D.
Giving us “Harvard Square” last month, K.I.L. returns with his latest offering, “No I.D.” Off his Separation EP, K.I.L. never fails to deliver in his verses. From wanting his LP to produced by NO I.D. to iterating that he can never be duplicated, K.I.L. knows he hasn’t reached his peak yet and continues to stay on his grind.
Cincinnati Rose – Sleazy Thoughts
Recently appear on ripe—tanjerines’ The Orange Room for a live performance of “All Alone,” Cincinnati Rose links up with the infamous director again for the official video of his single, “Sleazy Thoughts.” In the opening verse, Cincinnati Rose calls out the frauds who cap about being about the streets while spittin’ about who he is as a person, maintaining his integrity and remaining militant, and outsmarting the snakes.
Vanni Allan Poe – ‘Bachelor’ ft. Cash Rari
We haven’t heard much from Vanni after dropping The Cure Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, but that’s not to say he hasn’t been working. Recently making an appearance on Triy’s TriySeason: The Unexpected Journey album cut, “Forever” alongside KamGeez, the multifaceted artist links up with Ballads From The Trap partner and NNCHVLNT labelmate Cash Rari for the release of his brand new single, “Bachelor.” Though they’re looking for someone to spend their life with, they’re making it clear that they aren’t settling for less and may have to turn to being a Bachelor.
