Rising Jacksonville star BrokeASF has released his debut mixtape, WRONG 1 via Cinematic Music Group, accompanied by a video for standout track “Violent Livin” featuring Quando Rondo. The mixtape from the 18-year-old MC, comes on the heels of his thunderous December single, “Rock Out.” WRONG 1, available now via all digital retailers, finds BrokeASF flexing his signature battering ram of a flow, tossing tenacious threats while drenching his emotive delivery in chilly Auto-Tune.
While BrokeASF has always come across confident, the Florida native reaches new heights here, rapping with the swagger and control of a seasoned vet. He stays true to his Jacksonville roots, offering listeners a look at both his early days hustling and fending off danger, and the luxurious indulgences his talent has afforded him. In the “Violent Livin” video BrokeASF and Quando Rondo retreat to a private island, showing off tools accessorized with Louis Vuitton shoulder straps and glittering diamonds. They’re surrounded by attacking helicopters and pyrotechnic explosions, but the two are unfazed, rhyming off each other with the familiarity of two brothers. Watch the video HERE.
WRONG 1, with instant hits like “Barely Walk,” “People’s President,” and “Burnt Bridges” will thrill fans who’ve been waiting for a full-length project from the Sunshine State prodigy. The MC had a busy 2020, releasing a number of ecstatic tracks including “Comments,” which has over 2 million views on YouTube and more than 163k creates on TikToK. The twitchy, menacing “Glock in the Lake” has garnered over 203,000 YouTube views since its June release, paving the way for “Off the Map,” which amassed critical praise from Worldstar, Hip Hop Wired and RESPECT Magazine. He also shared “How,” with Detroit riser 42 Dugg for a buoyant-but-gravelly hit that won prominent placements on several digital streaming platforms: Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and Apple Music’s The Plug playlist, among others and most recently “Flute,” a collaboration with Rich The Kid.
