MBNel debuts new song and video
“Heroic” featuring Blxst
Produced by Mike Crook & Keanu Beats
Lead Single from Child Of The Trenches EP available July 17
“For hip-hop fans on the west coast,
MBNel is considered by many to be one of the hottest
up-and-coming rappers in music.
To the rest of the music world,
MBNel remains a secret yet to be discovered.”
Stockton, CA rapper MBNel shares the lead single and music video “Heroic” from the upcoming 6-song Child Of The Trenches EP available via Muddy Boyz/EMPIRE on July 17. Over a hopeful sweet-sounding track co-produced by Mike Crook [Doja Cat, Blueface] and Keanu Beats [Migos, Polo G, Lil Baby], MBNel takes the mic not only to bear witness to his past gang life and struggles with drugs and poverty, but also to seize the opportunity for a different life for his children. The music video is directed by Blu and the song features multi-talented Los Angeles producer and R&B artist Blxst.
“I heard the beat by Mike Crook and it just spoke to me. Being a hero and chasing fame ain’t what it’s all about for me. Not all heroes wear capes. Sometimes they like being villains too. Nobody’s perfect and I’m just a regular guy like everyone else. So knowing that, if someone can relate to my songs and gets inspired to do better, then it’s all worth it,” explains MBNel.
The new music follows MBNel’s collaboration with Long Beach rapper $tupid Young entitled The Yellow Tape 2. Their first collaboration The Yellow Tape EP featured stand-out track “On Me” that has gained over 6 Million views. Hypebeast calls MBNel a “fast rising Northern California native” and Elevator says he delivers an “authentic sound that carries lyrics with actual substance.”
MBNel’s honest lyrics not only delve into his struggles in the streets but also delivers a pure message of hope to his fans. His breakout success came in 2018 with “In My City” that shined a light on life in his hometown that has racked up over 10 Million plays via YouTube and Spotify.
