After independently posting up millions of streams and receiving acclaim from NPR and Noisey, rising Brooklyn rapper Clyde Guevara releases 75 Bush St, a pair of new singles entitled “Pinnacle” and “Wrist” today via Republic Records. Listen to the 75 Bush St pack—HERE.
On the upbeat first song “Pinnacle,” his jolting flow surges towards a motivational affirmation on the chorus, “Sometimes you’ve got to hit the bottom to reach your pinnacle.” Then pulling no punches, “Wrist” places listeners in the heart of his hometown, Red Hook Brooklyn, with vivid verses and a chantable refrain. His visceral storytelling takes center stage.
In the cinematic video directed by Clyde Guevara and Jenna Jones, viewers are swallowed into a gritty day-in-the-life as seen through the perspective of body cameras. The riveting film shows the cloudy adventures of 75 Bush St from living in the apartments to taking an unpredictable bike ride through the hood.
About Clyde Guevara iconic producer NoID [Jay Z, Kanye West] said, “Clyde is a real artist…I don’t run across people with that type of talent. Definitely a breath of fresh air.”
Grammy-winning songwriter to the stars Harold Lilly Jr. [Alicia Keys, Beyoncé] also chimed in, “Clyde Guevara is not just a rapper. Clyde Guevara is a black man in America who has mastered taking his pain and turning it into music. That gift isn’t given to many… it was given without measure to Clyde Guevara.”
These songs pave the way for his debut project coming very soon. Clyde’s the next champ to rise up from hip-hop’s most legendary borough.
