Valid and Stretch Money share “Commentate” ahead of new LP ‘Bill & Isiah’

Ahead of their upcoming album Bill & Isiah, Detroit mainstays Valid and Stretch Money have shared a new single called “Commentate”. As Michigan continues to blaze forth as a force to be reckoned with within hip-hop, a number of emcees are standing out with versatile skillsets ranging from trap to lyrical hip-hop and more. Valid and Stretch Money are two artists from Detroit that can do it all, and “Commentate” further solidifies their diversity with a bar-heavy, raw track that pairs gritty drums with refreshing synths for a tour-de-force of hard-hitting sonics. As vocalists, they deliver a whole package with sharp lyricism, commanding mic presence, and clever quips that beckon many replays.

Critically acclaimed producer Slot-A (producer of Legacy! Legacy! by Jamila Woods) has linked up with Valid and Stretch Money to deliver a unique, never been done before, gritty display of lyrical penmanship with “Commentate”. Co-produced by platinum credited Grammy-Award winning DJ Head of Shady Records, and Grammy-Award winning Anthony Rizzo. The raw and hard-hitting single Commentate is a display of top shelf lyricism all while staying true to the overall album concept.

SZA’s Triumphant Moment, How the Songwriters Hall Of Fame Award Validated Her Journey

SZA has shared how winning the Hal David Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame has validated her entire career. At the 2024 Induction and Awards Gala, she expressed her gratitude and reflected on her journey.

“As an artist, I’ve been a lot of different people. I’ve been 200 pounds; I’ve been 130 pounds. I’ve been someone who doesn’t dance at all on stage to someone who is dancing and trying their best and I think, ‘Oh man, I struggle with the artist thing,’ but writing was where I felt like a person, and I had value and showed that I was smart. It was beyond ‘Am I pretty? Am I liked?’ and that meant everything to me. It made me feel like a person that was doing something worth something. Basically, receiving this award validates my entire career… Thank you for seeing me,” she said.

The Hal David Starlight Award has been awarded to numerous iconic artists, including John Legend, Ne-Yo, Drake, Lil Nas X, and Post Malone. “This is such an exciting time for songwriters and music. Phenomenal artists like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift are pushing the envelope of what success looks like but who could argue that the last two years belong to SZA,” SHOF Chairman Nile Rodgers said. “Incredible songwriting, incredible performances, incredible artistry. She so deserves to be the 2024 recipient of the Hal David Starlight Award!”

In other news, SZA is working on the highly anticipated deluxe version of her album SOS, titled LANA. Despite numerous delays due to leaks, fans can expect updates soon. Stay tuned with Honk Magazine for the latest on SZA.
