FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (BRONX, NY) – Labeled one of the most coveted artists of 2022
by Disrupt Magazine, Dominican-American rapper LightUpp has released a steady stream of
music and videos over the years that have received a healthy heap of recognition and airplay
from major platforms including Hot 97, Power 105.1, and REVOLT TV.

The video for his catchy single “Ricky Bobby” is a self-directed and self-edited masterpiece
that displays LightUpp in an out-of-this-world desert setting, sitting on top of a copper
bronze BMW i8 and rapping about the hustle and struggles it took to achieve the trappings
of success in the rap world. The trippy, 360° degree video further shows LightUpp standing
and rapping on top of what appears to be a planet of his own creation – perhaps an
implication that he is a one-of-a-kind artist with otherworldly talent.

The video has already garnered over 15,000 views on Youtube since its release and
showcases the Bronx artist’s creativity and self-sufficiency as he ascends in the
music world. One can only hope that he stays equally grounded and down-to-earth
as his star continues to rise.

“Grupa” show Lightupp’s versatility as an artist.

music videos are reminiscent of stars like
Ludacris, DaBaby, and Missy Elliot. With
the support of industry veterans like

Empire Distribution, and Louie
Crack, it’s only a matter of
time before the world
knows the name Lightupp.
