He initially teased the track on Soundcloud, and it sent fans into a frenzy as they clamored for a wide release. Flaunting sharp lyrics over an 8-bit beat, it showcases his inimitable flow and otherworldly melodies. He glides over this production towards an incisively catchy refrain. It also follows hot on the heels of fan favorites such as “Forgot It” and “Super Pain.”
Thus far, Guwop Reign has eclipsed 5 million-plus Soundcloud streams and earned glowing endorsements from tastemakers with Lyrical Lemonade crowning him “one of 2020’s standout stars.” Last year, he rolled through with a string of anthems, including “Demeanor.” Additionally, his fan favorite song “Mulan 2” raked in a ton of streams. Lyrical Lemonade proclaimed, “The Atlanta native’s massive range shines and he is able to easily manipulate pitch and cadence to keep his songs continually interesting and simultaneously sonically pleasing.” Meanwhile, The Daily Chiefers commented, “Atlanta’s own Guwop Reign is in the fast lane and firing off nothing but bangers in 2020.”
Music encodes life’s most important lessons. Beneath the beats and between the bars, Guwop Reign confronts the struggles of youth, depression, anxiety, friends-turned-into-foes, and relationships with a level of wisdom and perspective that belies his 16 years. The Boston-born and Atlanta-based rapper flows with the intensity of an open wound as he tightly grips each melody. Streamed nearly four million times on Soundcloud, Reign built an avid fan base with one independent anthem after another including “Money Talk,” “Fly,” and “No Love” plus tastemaker praise from Lyrical Lemonade and Elevator Magazine. Landing a deal with Galactic Records in partnership with Republic Records the young prodigy released his single “Mulan 2” in 2020 and prepares to make his full-length debut for the label. Drawing on diverse influences such as Tupac, Future, Young Thug, and Rihanna, he asserts himself as a melodic hip-hop force ready for the spotlight.
