At just 19 years of age, SpotemGottem caught the attention of the Florida rap scene and is ready to take over. In April 2020, the Jacksonville-based artist released Final Destination, a 13-track project featuring the explosive viral sensation “Beat Box” that has taken the world by storm. The immense cultural impact of the record is evident in the range of remixes that the massive hit has seen over the past few months. With heavyweights like DaBaby, Mulatto, Shenseea, Pooh Sheisty, Polo G, and NLE Choppa (among many others) having adopted their own remixes, the song continues to rise alongside SpotemGottem’s momentum. In just the past few months alone the artist has gained playlist adds from Spotify’s coveted ‘Rap Caviar’, ‘Teen Party’, and ‘Most Necessary’ as well as Apple Music’s ‘Rap Life’, ‘Global Hits’, ‘Future Hits’ and ‘The Plug’. He’s also landed playlist covers from Spotify’s ‘Internet People’ and Apple Music’s ‘On Repeat’. This summer, “Beat Box” rose to the #1 spot at Urban Radio as Geffen’s second #1 record just this year. The song, which rose to the #1 spot in dramatic fashion as the greatest spin gainer of the week, also just reached the major milestone of surpassing the Platinum mark with 1 million equivalent sales.
With cosigns of major hip hop heavyweights for his seemingly effortless freestyles and hard-hitting beats, SpotemGottem has officially earned his place among one of the most recognized talents to come from the Florida scene. Now at nearly 6M monthly listeners on Spotify alone, and over 1M creates on TikTok with “Beat Box”, his explosive rise continues to reach previously untapped corners of the music scene. The song alone has gained recognition from VULTURE, PAPER, COMPLEX, STEREOGUM, XXL and HIP HOP DX to name a few, and landed him on COMPLEX’s coveted ‘Rappers To Watch in 2021’ list. More recently, Grammy.com noted the “Beat Box” remix phenomenon as one of the ‘8 Trends That Defined Rap’ for 2021. BET also claimed the phenomenon as one of the ’21 Best Social Media and Viral Moments of 2021’. The young talent shows no signs of slowing down and continues to prove himself as one of the top artists to watch in 2022 and beyond.
