“Rockstar” – Young Piff

"Rockstar" - Young Piff

Young Piff truly is the human equivalent of a Monster Energy Drink. MASTR Productions first crossed paths with the young superstar in 2018 when one of Piff’s skit videos went ultra-viral. Since then, “That Kid” Young Piff has put more stake in to his rap career, and is specializing in the hardest, most aggressive rap he can invoke.

One of the things I admire most about Young Piff is his steadfastness towards what he believes. You literally cannot make this man believe in something he doesn’t already believe in. He lives his life fast and loose, but trusts no one. He almost exclusively hits MASTR Productions beats, despite being sent packs and packs of beats every week to sift through. Piff routinely drives 5-6 hours (or flies) to Boston to record at MASTR Productions, the studio of his choice, and I respect that. “Rockstar” wasn’t recorded at our studio, but at the time of writing this, we are finishing up an epic weekend of recording, with a half-dozen tracks in the bank, so stay tuned!

In “Rockstar”, Piff flexes on the things that make him who he is, and laughs at how others try to compare their struggles to his. “They be thinking that they trap hard, they ain’t never seen a full-blown fleet up in they backyard.”

Money, weed, high fashion, expensive cars, model girls, exclusive lifestyle – this is Young Piff in a nutshell. At some point, Piff might crash and burn, and what he has built might crumble to the ground. Until then, he will continue to provide with streets with pure, unrefined musical gas.

“Nomad” – E Moreland

"Nomad" - E Moreland

Sometimes you know right off the bat if someone’s “got it” or not. It’s virtually unanimous with everyone in the MASTR Productions community that E Moreland has some of the best raw talent around.

E Moreland’s natural proclivity towards catchy melodies, his beat selection, and his understanding of rhythm and flow puts him immediately in the spotlight. Rudy and I have seen E Moreland catch fire in the past few months, and we have seen the strategy and mindset in the young artist develop rapidly.

“Demons” is a great representation of E Moreland’s musical style, and without leaking too much information about future releases, I can safely say that if you enjoy “Demons”, you’ll absolutely love what’s to come. This is the first Xandros production I had come across, and I found it to be quite fitting with the song and the style. Great work, all around on the visuals.

I saw E Moreland become truly serious about music when he started consistently coming to his sessions with completed tracks. I’m not just talking about having the words written. I’m talking about every flow, every word, everywhere he might need to cut in, or double: it’s all thought out ahead of time. It’s safe to say that E Moreland is one of the best up and coming artists in Boston to keep your eyes on.

“Let Me Down” – RudyWade

"Let Me Down" - RudyWade

Allow me to introduce you to one of the most versatile artists on the North Shore of Boston. Some of you might know him as the tracking engineer at MASTR Productions! RudyWade just dropped his new single, “Let Me Down” on all platforms, but more importantly, this music drop comes with a music video!

One of a Kind Visuals has done it again with a beautiful retro-style cinematic masterpiece. He even uses a square(ish) aspect ration in order to further capture the style, which I think was a really nice touch. I enjoyed how the scenes transition on-beat, and all the different scenes were color-graded in a way that really captured each scene’s essence. This guy truly kills every video he touches, and we’re ever-grateful for his skills.

“Let Me Down” is a track vaguely reminiscent of The Weeknd, with a catchy hook, and impressive vocal range. I’ve even heard rumor there’s a remix in the works…

I gained massive respect for RudyWade when he uprooted his life in New Jersey at the end of 2020 and decided to go all-in on his music career. I’ve seen him develop as both an artist and as a human being, and I’ve seen the potential in Rudy continually grow. He is focused, and one of the hardest workers I’ve ever met.

Be sure to give Rudy a follow on his socials! At the time of writing this article, Rudy is just about to hit 10k followers on Instagram! He’s been known to do giveaways, sneak peek music, and is great with showing his fans what he’s up to!

*Edit: 10k followers has been reached – Congrats, buddy!

“Messages” – 4onzii

"Messages" - 4onzii

I can confidently say that my friend, 4onzii, is one of the most creative individuals I have ever come across. His vocals are… always compelling, to say the least. “Messages” is a prime example of his creativity, and once again, One of a Kind Visuals absolutely nails the video production.

4onzii’s lyrics hit smooth as butter, rich with thematic embodiments of his inner monologue, creatively wrapped in a poetic, eerie, atmospheric aura. The temperature theme in his lyrics is expertly finessed, especially when you consider that most of 4onzii’s work is done freestyle in the studio.

“Tell me what can fix me because I feel like I’m broken. All the time that we had I feel like it was just stolen. I cannot pretend anymore that I am not just frozen, but I just gotta ride the wave away up on this ocean, and let it burn away.”

4onzii is most active on IG and YouTube. I highly recommend you follow 4onzii on both platforms so you can be a part of his entire story. His visuals truly are next-level movie-quality productions.

“Legacy” – Johnny Nash

"Legacy" - Johnny Nash

What’s the difference between an artist and someone who recreationally makes music? It boils down to dedication to one’s own vision. Johnny Nash has been associated with MASTR Productions since 2019, and was part of the original group of people who supported the studio enough that their engineer Jon could ditch his “real” job and commit to the music just as wholeheartedly as the artists who worked at his studio.

Fast forward a few years later, and Johnny Nash has developed into a more confident artist, and his vision is all the more clearer. Johnny has been shooting videos and making music non-stop for the last few years, and it’s been a pleasure to work with him. Our videographer, One of a Kind Visuals, is truly a master behind his equipment, and the attention to detail and quality he puts into his videos is locally unmatched.

At the time of writing this, Johnny Nash has recorded over 325 songs at MASTR Productions. The dedication to his work and his legacy is what separates Johnny from the crowd. Where others beef over petty issues, Johnny Nash puts his head down and works. Where others give up, Johnny perseveres. If you listen to any of Johnny Nash’s songs, you’ll become hip to the daily struggles in his life, and how he deals with them on a personal basis.

Johnny is most active on IG. Be sure to drop a follow so you can join his in-studio lives, and be the first to hear about new music!
