Heath240 Releases New Single "Chirp"

Heath240 is the rapping by-product of the working city of Boston, Massachusetts, and the highs and lows of his past. He combines Hip Hop/R&B with Bedroom-Pop, then juxtaposes a light-hearted delivery with darker lyrics. His distinct sound, unwavering energy, and versatile flow poise him as one of the most promising up-and-comers in the music industry. 


Heath spent most of his time growing up in Jamaica Plain, MA. His name, Heath240, was created from his address, 240 Heath St., where he spent most of his time. “As a kid I often felt too black for the white kids but too white for the black kids” says Heath. He was first introduced to Hip Hop through his dad playing the "Carter III" between basketball practices. This ignited his curiosity and exploration for the genre.  He faced adversity at a young age when both his mentor and friend passed away. To get a fresh start, he transferred to a new school in the suburbs but was riddled with depression and anxiety. These feelings weighed heavily on him and he relied heavily on music for relief. It was during these times he realized that rapping was what he wanted to dedicate his life to because he wanted to help people like himself become more positive and self-confident.


Despite his young career as an artist, Heath has already garnered positive reviews from Sleeping on Gems, Graduation Music, Sleepless Boston, The Museum TV, and a variety of local publications as well as snagging a nomination from the Boston Music Awards. In addition, he has had the opportunity to share the stage with national artists such as Quando Rondo and Nessly. His first LP, "The Hometown Hero" showcased the potential he has to craft eloquent expressions of self-identity and musical appreciation. The lead singles “Pollen” and “Attention” were featured on numerous playlists and have currently streamed over 96,000 and 137,000 plays respectively. Now with an established fan base, Heath can only go up from here. 


His new single “Chirp” featuring Daniel Price comes with a music video and is the strongest way possible for the rising Boston-based-emcee to end his 2020. 


"Chirp is me reimaging my surroundings and getting away from Boston. Leaving the people who talk about you from your small town and getting lost/immersed in the big city!" - Heath240

  Starting to make music at the age of fifteen, Wavy Ry considers himself as more than a rapper. He is an artist. Wavy Ry describes music as “an art, not a trend.” At the beginning of this year, Wavy Ry was able to release a track called “Replace You” which featured Chief Keef’s Cousin Matti Baybee. Wavy Ry had the opportunity to take a trip and stay in LA for a while to get in the studio and network. While talking about the trip, he mentioned “ I came across Paramount studios and locked in a session. Paramount has had so many great musicians that have recorded there. literally some of the people I grew up listening to have recorded their best tracks in Paramount Studios. So being there and walking through that type of Atmosphere, seeing all the plaques on the Walls from Ice Cube and Lil Wayne to Guns N roses, Linkin Park, Flo-Rida, so any of them throwback 2000 vibes were made there it was just dope to be there and actually record a song in the same booth as Icons.” He was

Fasscoupe

Representing Massachusetts to the best of its ability is something Fasscoupe takes very seriously, and that is something he has done very well. From opening to Lil Uzi Vert at back to back sold-out dates at the House of Blues to working with the likes of Lil Baby and Rich the Kid, Fasscoupe has been able to bring Massachusetts’ underground rap to the spotlight.  Fasscoupe began to make music in 2014 and was inspired by his older brother to do so. He mentioned “My older brother used to play CD’s around the house, he would play Dipset, G-Unit, and more. That is how I started to fall in love with hip-hop.”  Something Fasscoupe has credited to his success thus far is his experience in the music industry. He continued with “I am able to give something that really has no expiration date on it. To leave a legacy for people to follow or admire.” These experiences have been able to come from some of the biggest names in music, especially from when he worked on his track “Pray For” whic
