Steven Malcolm "Cardio"

Steven Malcolm has flows as vibrant as his drip in the official music video for Cardio.

The SALT Productions-directed visual showcases Malcolm’s undeniable star power.

The music video follows the September 15, 2023 release of the single. Cardio will appear on Malcolm’s forthcoming studio LP. Ramping things up with the video, Steven Malcolm explained the thoughts that went into creating both the record and the visual…

“I wanted to make an anthem I would have listened to in the high school locker room before a big game,” shares Malcolm. “This song is all about owning the greatness that results from hard work and dedication.”

The visual encapsulates Malcolm’s favorite things: Christ, dance, exercise, fashion, and fellowship. His pizazz legitimizes his aim of becoming CHH’s next crossover emcee.

About “Cardio” by Steven Malcolm

Cardio‘s fiery anthem follows Malcolm’s monstrous bop “Monster” which featured UK Christian trio LZ7.

The rising hip-hop heavyweight pounds the pavement with a dose of motivation to inspire listeners to rise above life’s biggest obstacles.

“We all have a race to run. To be great and keep keeping on takes two things: a little inspiration and cardio!”

Cardio is available now on all digital platforms. The energetic track sets the tone for Malcolm’s next album.

Preparing for the next Steven Malcolm Album

Poised for release in early 2024, the Michigan native’s next studio LP is the highly anticipated follow-up to his familial 16-track project, Tree. ‘Tree’ recently received a 2023 GMA Dove Award nomination in the Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year Category. The nod marks Malcolm’s seventh career Dove Award nomination.

Dee Black, "I Used To"

Dee Black and director Will Thomas have teamed up for a compelling visual story.

I Used To details how hip-hop music influenced Dee Black’s life, both the good and the bad.

Growing up in Baltimore, MD, music played a major role in Dee’s development. Artists like Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Dr. Dre were the soundtrack to his destructive behavior. He ultimately found his purpose by following God…not from the influence of celebrity. We can change the narrative and use music to impact culture positively.

For BRM, it has been a rough couple of years.

The leader of Rapture Ready North always tries to put up a front that everything is good. But he is not.

All of the dying, political arguments, school shootings, family health, and his own anxiety have taken a toll. Including weird chest pains from time to time. It has been a lot for everyone and BRM is no different. On Got A Secret, he is here to go and tell! When these trials happen, isolating oneself is not a good option. Now is the time to share with everyone that he is not okay. For the video, that message is delivered from a padded room.

London’s Feed’Em is set to release his third studio project later this year. 

‘Gospel of Grime, The Mixtape’ includes the new single Hats & Hoods.

“Hats & Hoods at the altar/ gun fingers in the air – Come as you are like you just don’t care/ my God will meet you there”

A Congolese-born grime emcee, Feed’Em has made a name for himself in the UK hip-hop scene.

His previous release, “Murder the Flesh, Pt. 3“, was met with critical acclaim. The record featured Zelijah Tishbite and Tneek. Following that success is his latest record Hats & Hoods. For those familiar with Grime culture, the term “no hats, no hoods” is one that you most likely have come across. It is viewed as a prejudiced term used to deny certain groups of people access to some venues.

On the record, Feed’Em draws parallels between the Grime culture and Chruch culture.

People can have a stereotypical view of those that wear hats and hoods. The way an individual looks can be perceived as “less mature” or even frowned upon. We must remember that we are told to “come as you are”. Exploring this concept further, Hats & Hoods presents an altar call that welcomes all and is less focused on church clothes.

Produced by Chakee T, the song is laced with clever wordplay, grimmy and drilly flows, and thought-provoking lyricism. The visual was filmed and edited by Junior Alawa.

Steven Malcolm unleashed the Summertime music video featuring Snoop Dogg and Jay-Way.

The visual premiered through Vibe Magazine and is the latest from Malcolm’s upcoming album.

It is the newest star-studded collaboration for Malcolm who has previously worked with Shaggy, KB, Social Club Misfits, R3hab, and more. Summertime, featuring Snoop Dogg and Jay-Way, is available now across all DSPs. The record boasts rhymes tighter than Chuck Taylor’s shoelaces. Malcolm refines his flow to compliment the elegance of Snoop’s laid-back style and Jay-Way’s smooth vocals.

“With this record, I wanted to bring an endless tune that will give people that summertime feeling over and over,” says Malcolm.

Malcolm’s IVAV label mate Jay-Way and Snoop effortlessly add their suave swagger to enhance the sweetly harmonious bop.

The record is co-produced by Mikey and Scootie of Social House (Ariana Grande, MGK).

Legendary music and entertainment magazine, Vibe, premiered the music video, stating:

Summertime has the makings of a bonafide anthem for the warmer months of the year and is a continuation of Malcolm’s evolution as a lyricist and songwriter.”

It is not the first foray into Christian music for Snoop Dogg.

The hip hop icon declares “Summertime is back,” in his opening verse. Snoop is a self-professed “born-again Christian” who released his first gospel album in 2018 (Bible of Love). The album peaked at number one on the US Gospel Albums chart for seven weeks. That same year, Steven Malcolm found his own success on the gospel chart with “Not To Us/Good Love”. The record was a radio hit that doubled as the first release from Malcolm’s sophomore album, ‘The Second City’.

This is a party that everyone is invited to. 

Summertime was added to Spotify’s New Music Friday Christian playlist and Apple Christian’s Best New Songs chart. Watch below as rap royalty rides off into the sunset with two rising stars in an IVAV meets Death Row trifecta.

Featuring dancehall icon Shaggy, the record has over 6 million combined streams. The Dove Award-nominated anthem “Glory On Me“, featuring Childish Major and Tylor Hill, is also on the album.

Tree is an eclectic depiction of Malcolm’s past, present, and future. It mixes the spirituality of Sunday morning with the energy of Saturday night.
