On February 20th, a video popped up in my recommended videos called “Pay Up” by a rapper named TEC. The video wasn’t uploaded to elevator, astari, worldstarhiphop, or anything like that. Despite not being released by one of the bigger YouTube channels that seem to be premiering all the new hits from the underground, ,since its release on February 18th the video has accumulated over 181k views.
The song reminds me of both Boosie and Young Thug (excuse me I guess I mean Sex? lol.) Anyways I saw the beat was produced by a name that I still cant figure out why, just seemed hella familiar. I still don’t know why I recognized the name, because I looked him up on YouTube (where I find most producers) and the dude is still very fresh to the YouTube scene. Less than 100 subscribers, his beat videos don’t have thousands of plays. (I would later come to find out that’s because he focuses on Beatstars and other avenues)
He might not have hundreds of thousands or millions of views like most of the producers I interview. However, Guwap$, produced the “Pay Up” song which I think will continue to rack up numbers because its genuinely dope af. And I think he will be producing a lot more hits to come!
Scroll down to check out the Pay Up music video, find out more about Guwap$, and check out some of his beat videos.
