Fast-rising Atlanta rapper CKENT has unveiled his brand-new EP, Blapman, an eight-track collection of straight-up authentic rap, which he appropriately describes as “all bars, no feats”. Having already experienced success with several previous releases, including “All Stars Freestyle” alongside Lil Yachty, the independent rapper looks set to continue his impressive run and reach new heights with Blapman, which is supported by a new single of the same name.
Falling in love with music from a young age and honing his artistry over the last few years, CKENT showcases his full repertoire of talents on Blapman, with the project highlighting his playful voice and accents, varied cadence and remarkable lyricism – a formidable combination that makes for an exciting listen. The entirety of the EP was produced by in-demand Detroit producer ENRGY BEATS, and the powerful synergy between each production and CKENT’s flow and delivery on each track is undeniable and results in Blapman being what can only be described as a must-hear project and his best to date.
Speaking more on the release, CKENT says, “Blapman is about me being in my own world, ‘Blapworld’. To ‘Blap’ is to make it happen or Believe Learn And Prosper (B.L.A.P).” As such, “Blap” isn’t just music but a lifestyle choice and way of thinking. The DIY rapper also has his own clothing brand, Blapworld, and new merchandise, including hoodies, varsity jackets, and chef aprons, has been released to coincide with the Blapman EP release.
Clearly driving in his own lane with a strong vision of how he wants to present his talent and creativity to the world, CKENT is a fresh, dynamic, and much-welcomed addition to the hip-hop scene and is undoubtedly an artist to watch out for. And he’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon, with plenty more content to look forward to over the coming months. Blapman is available to buy/stream now on all platforms: https://ckent.lnk.

Talented reggae artist “Yeza” Is Rapidly Gaining Popularity With Her Fantastic Music
Known as Yeza, Monique Chambers is a reggae/dancehall artist from St Andrew, Jamaica. Having developed her sound through working with numerous artists/producers, Yeza started showcasing who she was as an artist, landing herself some major gigs.
Talented and hardworking artist, Yeza overcame this by honing her craft and working at constant improvement. Her creativity and ability to send thoughtful messages through musical lyrics have also built a solid foundation for the artist she is today. I had a quick interview with Yeza and you would be amazed by what her ambition and goals are. Check out the interview below.
Let’s start off by introducing yourself, you know the basics like name, age, where you’re from. As much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.
Monique Chambers artiste name Yeza. Age 31, from St Andrew Jamaica. I am an authentically cultured, bold unapologetic feminine force with a touch of grit and street; this translates to the sound of “rude girl roots” in my music which is culture meets street, always seeking to uplift the people through the message.
Talk me through your creative process.
Starts with inspiration which can come from anywhere, I then play with Melodies and may come up with words before I write. I then write to an instrumental to create the perfect synergy.
How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?
Communication, meetings and also taking time out to recharge and then come back strong.
What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music?
Nothing solid comes to mind. I would say it’s been more of affirmations and stuff that I’ve discovered on my own, such as; learning to understand yourself and what you want to contribute to the art is a great foundation or starting point to becoming great at what you do.
What is still your biggest challenge?
Balancing all the parts happening all at once. Music is a whole world by itself; the music industry has so many arms and legs that you need to tend to equally. Even with the help of my team: which I am grateful for, the attention to all the areas can become challenging at times. I’m not the biggest lover of social media, and I am not very extroverted so this can becoming challenging especially in this field.
What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?
I would have just saved a lot of money for investments, it takes a lot of resources to push forward and maintain a certain level of quality.
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
Considering my genre and style: reggae/dancehall, I would open for Damien Marley or Hempress Sativa, Sizzla Chronixx or Protoje to name a few.
What are you focusing your time on now?
Creating new music and executing new and improved business plans.
How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general?
It’s doing what it does, it’s revolving, our music is always evolving. Mento, ska, rocksteady then reggae followed by dancehall, as it was in the beginning, so it is at present.
What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?
Just my understanding that this is my life’s mission. I see no other way out other than through.
