NYC Recording artist SNUBBS releases his highly anticipated debut single “Masked Up.”
The 23-year-old rapper fresh out of Manhattanville projects in Harlem, New York unbridled personality and raw talent have led him to work with Dave East, Jay Critch, ASAP Rocky and Tekashi 6ix9ine just to name a few.
SNUBBS was first introduced to the music scene when his twerk song “Throw that Bacc” went viral at the age of 16. However, as he matured, so did his sound and craft, becoming more lyrical and melodic. SNUBBS’ heart-felt delivery and tone originates from a long history of ties to Uptown/Bronx underground communities.
At the age of 18, he was involved in the biggest gang bust in New York City history, where more than a hundred people were arrested. This takedown changed SNUBBS’ perspective of life. In the wake of losing numerous childhood friends and beating a lifelong incarceration, he realized that he was the voice of progress.
Despite the fact that SNUBBS experienced many obstacles, he took the opportunity to move pass and overcome the negativity that has unfolded in his life. In his latest single, “Masked Up,” he expresses a blend of his life experiences and obstructions that he confronted. This street record is just a taste of what we expect to come from his upcoming project set to release later this year.
