“New deals on the way, bitch!”
“New deals on the way, bitch!” he said. “If you ain’t got 15 [million], don’t talk to me, bitch! I don’t want no meetings unless you talkin’ 15 and up!”
Pump is said to have received a nearly $350,000 advance on his original Warner contract, but with the platinum-selling, top 3 Billboard hit “Gucci Gang” under his belt, he’s looking for a much bigger payday for his next venture. The initial report from Hits Daily Double stated that Pump’s team was looking for $8 million per album, while he’d been getting offers that sat in the $3-4 million per album range.
In 2017, Pump released his self-titled debut project, which launched at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. It sold 46,000 equivalent album units in its first week.
Though he’s a relatively new artist, Pump is already a fairly recognized name in pop culture. Earlier this month, his hit, “Gucci Gang,” was parodied in an SNL skit with Pete Davidson and Sam Rockwell.
Following his viral freestyle, Black Thought is planning to release some music independent from The Roots.
In June of last year, Black Thought revealed that 9th Wonder, as well as Salaam Remi, would be working on The Roots forthcoming 12th studio album End Game. “Last October we had a writers’ retreat at Electric Lady Studios in New York City for about a week or so,” he said. “Within that time we got about a good deal of the groundwork of what’s to come for the record, End Game. I’ve been working, writing and recording on it since then.”
9th Wonder has released many collaborative projects over the course of his career, including efforts with Talib Kweli, Wale, Murs, Pete Rock, and Jean Grae, not to mention his run as the producer in Little Brother. Last year, he revealed he had recorded the equivalent of a 12-track album with TDE artist SiR.
No word on a release date for the EP or the long-awaited Roots album. Stay tuned for further details.
Born and raised in Long Island, New York where many hip hop pioneers have begun, has highly influenced my love of music. My stage name is Young Ray, and I have been in the music industry for five years so far, learning and obtaining knowledge to better myself with my career.
I began listening to “50 Cent”, “Eminem”, ”Young Jeezy”, and “Pretty Ricky”. Quickly inspired I began writing ideas down and working with making words rhyme. People then saw what my admiration was in life and turned away from me and hated the fact that I wanted to pursue music. I turned to music and writing as a way to fully express the emotions I felt. Writing poetry allowed me to show people what I am capable of doing and doing it in a positive way. Many people said what they felt with their negative opinions towards my decisions, but I didn’t allow it to bring me down. It actually gave me more motivation and more positive energy to prove everyone wrong.
When I graduated high school, I took my music to the next level. I began linking up with local artists feeling out new flows and learning new ways to approach the microphone. I then met B Divine, a producer, DJ, artist, and hip hop enthusiast. B Divine and I met at a local recording studio, and began working together each complimenting the other with our individual style of music. He introduced me on to the old school hip hop culture and opened me up to a new way of thinking. It was then that I began to collaborate with many artists of all different styles including hip hop legend, Tragedy Khadafi. I am featured on the mixtape from DJ Modesty overseas in France as well as a number of other mixtapes and have been featured on various radio shows throughout the U.S. I have been dedicating all of my time to writing, recording, and performing in order to pursue this dream, music has quickly become my life.
Since day one the progress has been nonstop, the learning experiences have boosted my ability to educate myself with a better knowledge of how to take on everyday obstacles in my life. Not only have I built a stronger mentality, but I have helped the few that stand strong by my side. I hope that in the future, I can reach out and help everyone that was once in my shoes. Let’s see where this path leads me.

At only 23 years old Steven Jackson A.K.A. Un1que has accomplished a lot and proven himself to be more than a local star in his city of Winston-Salem, NC. Un1que has had many different musical backgrounds from being lead percussionist in every orchestra band he’s been a part of, to starting his own record label at the age of 19. He went on to sell over 1,000 copies of his first mixtape under the record label name (Crank Me Up Records) before his focused changed because of his lack of knowledge in music business. He then started to pursue this knowledge at Forsyth technical Community College while his buzz continued to grow without a single album or music video released yet. Continuing with his momentum he went on to join Winston World Wide in 2010, also creating the “Tear Da Stage Up” showcase & competition, then touring with Goss and Kill Yo Self Ent. to spread his name outside of his city and state. Un1que is still on the grind with another mixtape release upcoming with the “Tune My Radio”, which he produced the whole mixtape as well. Un1que is more than an artist, he’s a rising star that’s ready to let the world see him shine.
