Famous Kid Brick Reaches New Audiences with National Video Debut “Never Ever” and forthcoming Mixtape Graduated from Local
Famous Kid Brick’s song and video “Never Ever” debuts nationally on MTV Jams, mtvU, and Music Choice May 31. And he proclaims his new accomplishments with new mixtape Graduated from Local, due mid-summer.
Tampa, Fla.-For the past seven years, central Florida music mogul Famous Kid Brick has been one of the most influential rays of independent hip-hop to blast his way across the south east. Now he is set to take the rest of the world by storm with his latest video “Never Ever” debuting nationwide on MTV Jams, mtvU, and Music Choice May 31. And Kid Brick toasts this new accomplishment with his highly anticipated forthcoming Hussch Boy Productions mixtape Graduated From Local, scheduled to drop mid-summer.
“The release of this song and video had so much anticipation behind it,” Brick confesses. “Just off of a 15 second Instagram clip I had DJs, industry executives, and fans’ hitting me up saying it was the one.”
“As soon as I heard “Never Ever” I called Brick to tell him he finally had that worldwide hit” explains DJ Winn – VP of Cool Running DJs. “He not only deserves it, but he is quite capable of running the race alongside the majors. I’ve said that from day one.”
The video was shot in Tarpon Springs at the Baumgart’s East Lake mega mansion by Justin Petrone & 12/12 Productions, directed by Randy Cabrera, shot and edited by PK Sellers. The mansion boasts the scene of a lavish lifestyle featuring exotic cars, beautiful women, and the avoidance of a THOT (slang for thirsty hoe over there). On the song, Brick sticks to his commitment to play the field over a slow-riding groove, deep bass line and a subtle electric guitar provided by West Coast producer MigL Beatz.
The video was released in late March on YouTube.com and WorldStarHipHop.com and has racked up over a half quarter million views in only a couple of months. It has made so much noise virally that major television networks got wind of its success and now they will partake in airing it on national television.
“I’ve created something unexplainable and exhilarating in Florida,” explains Brick. “My infectious sound, innovative sense of fashion, and the passion to uphold my name has infected everyone it touches. Now is the time for me to graduate from local and go global!”
And Famous Kid Brick will do just that with his forthcoming mixtape Graduated From Local. With cuts like “California,” “Hate To See” and “Move On,” Famous Kid Brick is sure to win over new fans from coast to coast with his versatile approach.
Throughout his career, Brick’s music has amassed more than 2,500 BDS-registered radio spins of his first runaway hit single “Im On It,” 20,000-plus iTunes downloads and sold out shows throughout the Southeast. And the numbers for “Never Ever” are growing rapidly.
Famous Kid Brick’s buzz has grown tremendously around the south from the exposure on the road and radio play. Most recently, Brick was invited to perform in front of thousands of Florida high school graduates for Grad Bash at Universal Studios in Orlando and Gainesville’s Gator Stompin’, which has been a rite of passage in the city for more 30 years.
“With the show that Famous Kid Brick and the Hussch Boy crew put on, you totally forget that it’s a local artist performance,” Orlando Davis – Program Director for WLLD FM.
