Today marks the release of New York singer/rapper Paris Bryant and Philadelphia rapper YXNG K.A’s collaboration “I’m The Man Now,” an adorning track about leveling up after hardships and struggles. Listen to the track released via Cinematic Music Group/Geffen Records below.
As newcomers, together they share their thoughts on the adversity they have faced prior to and the challenges that come along with their newfound success. At 19-years-old Paris shares “Appreciate one’s who there for me, yeah the ones who care for me” while KA raps “Remember we couldn’t even run it up, Now we the ones who be pullin up stuntin now” – over hums and a melodic yet trappy beat, they both prove their confidence was always there but now they’re on a new level.
“I’m The Man Now” marks Paris debut single of 2022. Last year he shared a slew of songs including “Run Around” which led HNHH to single him out as a “frontrunner,” “Demon Time,” which has nearly 150k views, his debut “Mad” which remains to grow at a rapid pace and several other tracks that attest Paris’ ability to take on multiple styles of music . As an up-and-coming artist he’s already caught the eyes of several media platforms including praise from Triller, which spotlighted him as a featured artist, as well as recognition from REVOLT, HotNewHipHop, RESPECT, and UPROXX, who listed the track on their “Best New Hip-Hop This Week” roundup. With the ability to move from dynamic flows to R&B runs worthy of headlining stages across the country, Paris Bryant continues to demonstrate why he’s one of his city’s rising stars.
