Tonight (May 23rd), The Kid Daytona will be gracing the stage at Public Assembly in NYC. With the success of his most recent mixtape Running With The Bulls, alongside DJ Ozone this show will be one to attend. Other NYC natives holding it down on stage that evening will be ANTHM, Epic Records own Astronomical Kid and Perrion. Also on the bill are Chicago artist Add-2 and Left Coast emcee Raven Sorvino.
Head down bottom on how you can win a pair of passes.
Back in March, ANTHM took Eminem’s classic “Role Model” for a spin. And now, a couple months later we get some matching visuals. Check as the Manhattan emcee ditches the Wall Street suit and spits his fuckin’ heart out. Get familiar folks… ANTHM ain’t going no where but up.
A couple months back, ANTHM did his thing over A$AP Rocky’s posse cut. And now the NY spitkicker ventured underground for some matching visuals. Like what you hear? Then be sure to grab dude’s Handful of Dust EP with Blu GODleeBarnes.
The first time I heard ANTHM, he was putting a verbal choke hold on Black Rob and The LOX’s classic “Can I Live” back in March of last year (check the video here). A month later his When We Were Kings mixtape dropped and from that point on, I have made it a mission to put the spotlight on the New York spitkicker any and every chance I get. From the Blu-assisted “Polaris” to the incredibly dope visual for “Siren’s Song,” the equally impressive Joy & Pain EP (which featured both Blu and Freddie Gibbs) and even his recently-released Handful of Dust EP with Blu GODLeeBarnes, everything that Ant’s released is worthy of praise.
And with that intro out of the way, the DopeHouse is proud to premiere the latest visual release from his aforementioned Joy & Pain EP. On “Be Still” the Manhattan emcee gets as personal as he’s ever been detailing the challenges he’s faced since quitting his Wall Street gig to pursue a career in hip hop. The last verse is where it’s at though… family first.
ANTHM follows up the 2dope “Nina” with the second release from his upcoming Handful Of Dust EP with Blu (producing as GODleeBarnes). A dedication to his younger sister on her 11th birthday.
I picked this as my second release to celebrate my sister on her birthday. She turns 11 today. Anyone who has ever been close to me knows that we have a special relationship. It runs deep. I hope this record remains as timeless in her life as our bond will be. Happy birthday, Debbie.
After hitting us with two incredibly dope freestyles (A$AP Rocky’s “1 Train” and Joey Bada$$ “Waves“), ANTHM returns with the first single off his Handful Of Dust EP; which drops March 4th and will be entirely produced by Blu (as GODleeBarnes).
