Payback releases his debut EP “Who Is He?” via Robust Muzik/Black Drop Muzik Records
L.A.-based hip hopper, producer, and lyricist, Payback releases his debut EP, Who Is He?, out now via Robust Muzik/Black Drop Muzik Records..
The EP harkens back to the golden era of hip hop and ranges in tone and texture from braggadocio-filled, boom bap bangaz to feel good, summertime vibes to sociopolitical commentary to spirituality. As one fan eloquently states,“Payback spits the type of mind elevating lyrics, bangaz, and dopeness that hip hop afficionados have been thirsting for.”
The EP features the singles, “Get Up” and “Reflections.” “Get Up” touches the souls of those who have been affected by the recent racial reckoning and calls for social justice. With “Reflections,” the L.A.-born and Watts bred hip hopper and social philanthropist pays homage to his life’s journey over a smooth, jazzy, soul stirring track.
Payback is a member of the hip hop group, Black Drop originating from Los Angeles, CA. The members represent South L.A., Watts, and Queens, NY. Inspired by lyrical ingenuity, hard hittin’ & head bobbin’ tracks infused with vintage soul, jazz, and R&B music, this hip hop collective carries the hip hop torch in a way that celebrates it and pays homage to the innovators.
As both a group and solo artists, Black Drop lyricists form a unique sound that appeals across the spectrum of hip hop generations.
As part of Black Drop, Payback plays local venues in Los Angeles and throughout the country. For booking information,
