TRACK OF THE WEEK: 4BATZ - ACTII: DATE @ 8


4batz
If you haven't caught wind of 4batz yet, how have you not stumbled upon the viral video for 4 Shooters Only's "From The Block" one-shot series doing the rounds on social media proving not to judge a book by its cover?

Perfectly encapsulating the concept of "when the song doesn’t match the artist," 4batz, matches the quintessential rap star image with gold grillz, a bally, and his crew of men all standing behind him. However, what sets 4batz apart from the rap star stereotype is the revelation that he isn't even a rapper.



As soon as 4batz opens his mouth, we are teleported into an ethereal melodic symphony, as he creates a genre-bending R&B sound that defies expectations. Reminiscent of Brent Faiyaz, showcasing a talent that diverges from his rap-star appearance, his latest release, "act ii date @ 8," follows the earlier drop of "act 1: Stickers 99," solidifying his entry into the "toxic R&B wave" that many new singers have embraced.


Amid ongoing discussions about the state of hip-hop, 4batz advocates for artists adopting the traditional hip-hop look while exploring and contributing to other genres. It's a refreshing take that challenges preconceived notions and expands the boundaries of artistic expression.



Despite having a relatively small discography, 4batz is already making waves in 2024 with his commitment to delivering quality music. The visualizer for "act ii date @ 8" was released three weeks ago, providing an opportunity for those who hurry to experience that exhilarating "first listen" feeling.


As 4batz continues to defy expectations, his unique blend of visuals and sound promises to leave a lasting impression on the music scene.
