The South Bronx’s own Axel Leon has been making major waves in the current rap renaissance happening in his home city. After mesmerizing viewers by his sharp wordplay on Hot 97 with Funk Flex, DJ Enuff’s The Hot Box and Sway In The Morning, listeners were waiting to see what the rhyme-spitter had next.
At the top of 2017, Axel made his mark with the release of “Bang Bang 2K17,” a redux version of Capone-N-Noreaga’s classic which featured fellow NYC native Tru Life. With that, he also announced that he had been working on Rich Port 2, the sequel to the gritty 2015 mixtape he had previously released.
Today, Axel unveils ‘RP2’ in its final form. Boasting features from the likes of Jim Jones and Tego Calderon, the 10-track project draws heavy inspiration from the cult-classic film Paid In Full, even interpolating some of it’s most powerful scenes.
Take a listen to the mixtape above.

Today, rapper and producer NAV releases his highly anticipated debut mixtape, NAV. The self-titled effort includes 11 tracks, all written, produced and mixed by NAV. Metro Boomin, DannyBoy Styles and Rex Kudo contribute co-production on a handful of tracks. The mixtape is NAV’S first release under XO/Republic Records and includes previously released songs “Some Way” featuring The Weeknd, as well as viral hits “Up” and “Myself.”
After bursting onto the scene in 2015, NAV has made a colossal amount of noise. Preferring to let his music do the talking, NAV has ranked in over 100 million plays on his SoundCloud page, all while releasing self-produced songs straight to his ever-growing fan base. Recently, NAV teased fans by announcing his upcoming collaborative music project with Metro Boomin, Perfect Timing, set for release at a TBD date this year. The two most recently collaborated on NAV’s own track, “Up,” which appears on his self-titled mixtape and has received well over 21 million streams as of the release of ‘NAV.’
Already having established himself as a go-to producer, NAV has become a disruptive voice in the industry, recently being featured on “Biebs in the Trap,” the fan-favorite single from Travis Scott’s 2016 album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight and “Re-Up” from Belly’s Inzombia project, both of which NAV produced. In 2015, NAV also co-produced Drake’s Grammy-nominated track “Back to Back.” NAV is set to make his live debut this spring, performing his first-ever shows at Coachella on Saturday, April 13 and 22. With more soon to come, including a recently filmed music video for “Some Way,” NAV is already the quintessential artist to watch in 2017 and is poised for a massive breakthrough year.
