The highly anticipated “New Comp City” is the official mix-tape for Compton, California artist “iAmCompton”. With “Turn It Up” featuring Rich Homie Quan and “Money 2 Spend” featuring Eazy E released as singles from the 10 Track mixtape attained unexpected unprecedented success on radio globally. Its worthy addition to the impressive body of work “iAmCompton” has been developing over the years.
Los Angeles native, iAmCompton is no stranger when it comes to leaving a lasting “impression”. The Roulette Media Records’ (RMR) signee and tattoo artist has left his mark on artists such as Diddy, Nas, Travis Scott and Taraji P. Henson to name a few. His latest project happens to be the West Coast, as today he announces the upcoming release of his debut project, “New COMP City”. The 10-track project, featuring production from The Buchanans (Nas, Beyonce, Jay-Z) and J B Minor.
Raw, authentic and honest are a few words that come to mind when listening to New COMP City. Tracks such as “Fake” and “New Route” showcase the Young California emcee’s vulnerability and self-determination while the lead single – “Money To Spend”, sampling the late Eazy-E, highlights iAmCompton’s charismatic bravado. It’s this dichotomy that serves as the canvas behind iAmCompton’s musical inspiration. New COMP City plays out like a Westside story of pain and beauty growing up on the tough streets of Compton.
“New COMP City is the untold story of the streets where I’m from,” says iAmCompton. “You didn’t have a lot of options growing up and it was easy to get involved with the wrong crowd but Compton made me who I am today. I’m not a product of my environment but I’m able to use my environment as my product and as a platform to share my story.”
