Leintz - Santana (Hosted By DJ Kay Slay)

Today Rocky Mountain based and New York raised rapper Leintz drops off new music for fans. Bouncing back after the birth of his son with a project adorning his son's "Santana" name, this well travelled rapper/street entrepreneur is on a grind that's starting to gain recognition across the game.

 "The title of my project Santana speaks for itself since it’s a picture of me holding my son’s hands through a walkway of my old neighborhood in Queens. It’s my son’s name and the reason why I named it Santana was because he brought the hustle outta me ten times more and he motivates me to do better. I have a mouth to feed and he’s counting on me," Leintz explained. "I named my son Santana because I was always fascinated with that name in the hopes that one day if I had a son, I was going to name him that." 

 Branching out to the Colorado rap scene which is a lot different than Queens, New York rap scene, Leintz gives fans something that's got a diverse sound with his Santana effort. 

"The Colorado rap scene is dope. The Hip-Hop community in Colorado is very small since it's more of a hippy/techno/country music kind of state with not much diversity but they got crazy lyricists and some ill producers and DJs

When asked how he connected with the rappers on the Colorado scene, Leintz said that he had been working on connecting with these artists featured on the project throughout high school and college.

"I connected with them my senior year in high school and all through college when I saw a couple cyphers/battles, etc. I didn’t know they had this much talent out here, but I’ve seen some of their performances and listened to their music and they really got something to say!"

Going forward Leintz looks to build on the success with continuing to have his records spun at major radio stations across the East Coast on his home turf. 

"My plans to promote this project are to continue having my songs spin through Shade45, Hot97 and possibly other radio stations. I'm dropping more visuals to get to these blogs more and I'm building business relationships with these TikTok/Instagram influencers with heavy following and whatever I can get access to overall," Leintz said.

"Bam Roc - Bloc Work"

Recently Crown Heights rapper Bam Roc delivered his momentus new single titled, "Bloc Work." Building upon his previous efforts since he was a kid rapping on blank tapes over HOT 97 instrumentals, this Brooklyn upstart gives fans bar after bar of lyrics to keep the listener locked in.
"I came across Axel Beats Summer of 2017-18 and I saw his beats had a large impact on drill music in Brooklyn, so I searched him up on YouTube where he had a variety of beats," Bam Roc explained. "It took me some time to find the right beat because I like to go off of a feeling and vibe when I write and create my work. I don’t like to force the music, to me when you do that it takes away from the authenticity, but once I found the right beat for my single Bloc Work I knew I had something."
Remaining true to his upbringing in Brooklyn, Bam Roc has grown from a kid to a man through rap and you can hear it in his lyrics and sound.
"I’m from Crown Heights, Brooklyn born and raised, I love my neighborhood - there’s a lot of different cultures and races it’s a very diverse place. We also have the big Caribbean parade also known as the Labor Day Carnival - the food is amazing. Growing up I always had something to do, from jumping bike ramps, to playing man hunt, to seeing fights it was different but I wouldn’t change where I’m from for nothing. It taught me a lot growing up as a kid and now a man."
Rapping since the age of 12 and watching my family The Ranjahz try their hand at the music industry, Bam Roc used to record over instrumentals as a kid but basketball was his dream through junior high and high school. By the time Bam Roc turned 18 years old, he was taking the craft more seriously and released his first official remix to DJ Unk's “Walk it out.
Teetering on the boundaries of multiple genres of music, Bam Roc describes his music as Hip-Hop, but a mixture of different cultures combined with Drill music to cater to the ears of his people in NYC today.
"My music is more Hip-Hop, but my style has a mixture of different cultures. I listen to a lot of Rock and Pop music as well from the early 2000’s and I also like to cater to the people's ears. Drill music started for me in 2018 where I decided to switch it up a little bit and work on adding another style and flow to my arsenal," Bam Roc explained. "Working on Drill music helped me channel my energy more when recording, giving off a different flare. Knowing I can be lyrical I blended the drill with my Hip-Hop and I created my own style for people to listen to and gravitate towards"
