Bing Bing Announces Release Date of his First Formal Original Song Release

Bing Bing on    Instagram   ///   Facebook   ///   Soundcloud
Pasadena, CA rapper Bing Bing has just put tha word out that he is releasing the 2nd single for his upcoming project "Beautiful Struggle" 2.0 OPEN WOUNDS on April 17th, 2018. He's calling it "Humble & Strong".

"This new song I'm about to release is everything I expect from me as an artist at this point in my creative development," explains Bing Bing. "The title is inspired by a motto given to me by one of my mentors."

Bing Bing spent the last 9 months in Seattle, Washington where he collaborated with local Hip Hop Legend Suntonio Bandanaz on the first single for the Beautiful Struggle 2.0 OPEN WOUNDS project. "To feature someone like Suntonio Bandanaz on my first single promoting for a whole new project gave me a sense of direction and where I'm at. The idea of a local legend like himself on one of my songs was a good sign for me." "REGARDLESS" by Bing Bing featuring Suntonio Bandanaz is currently available for free Listen & Download.

Bing Bing has set out to fulfill another mixtape series with the Beautiful Struggle title. In August 2016, he released "Welcome to the Beautiful Struggle", a nine-cut, 30 minute listen that took nearly 3 years to complete. And if you ask Bing, it still wasn't completely finished. "The message behind this project was mainly directed toward the youth as you can hear in the first song off the mixtape," says Bing Bing. "It took me a longer time to write because I've been working as Mistah Wilson on ThaWilsonBlock Magazine, WilsonBlock100 Radio, and Pasadena Music Scene during that time."

Bing Bing is looking to follow up with Beautiful Struggle 2.0 OPEN WOUNDS this Fall / Winter 2018. The meaning behind "OPEN WOUNDS" has a lot to do with heart break, lies, and incomplete truths about his childhood. A lot of which he's been exposed to later in life...as an adult. Bing Bing feels like he has to talk about these issues and tell his truths in order to rise above the pain that has hindered his growth. The struggle with loving himself and focusing on the unique gifts he's been blessed with. 

The plan is to reach people. To impact their lives in a positive, life-changing way. And hopefully, inspire them to express themselves and live up to their full potential. "Where I grew up, many of my peers don't relate to my story," says Bing Bing. "But, what one person doesn't like, a million others will."

Bing Bing's 2nd single "Humble & Strong" off of Beautiful
Struggle 2.0 OPEN WOUNDS will be released on April 17th, 2018, the day he was released from juvenile hall and terminated from probation as a youth. April 17th marks the 10th year since Bing Bing's plan to pursue a career in arts. And this upcoming song is everything that he expects from himself as an artist at this stage in his development. 

"The song is dedicated to Bernice Taylor, everybody that knows me in Pasadena, and anyone that I've ever had a falling out with," explains Bing Bing. 

The good thing about this is that Bing Bing's new song "Humble & Strong" will be his first ever release on all major digital outlets. Production on this song was done by Magestick Records.

Hip Hop: Bridging the Gap between the West Coast & Pacific Northwest


Song: "Regardless"
Release: 8/20/17
Artists: Bing Bing featuring Suntonio Bandanaz
Album: Beautiful Struggle 2.0 OPEN WOUNDS (FALL/WINTER 2018)

When one thinks of West Coast Hip Hop, let's be honest, okay, cities like Portland and Seattle don't really come to mind. The Bay Area is so much in a lane of their own that folks don't really think of San Francisco or Oakland when referring to West Coast Hip Hop...or even Gangsta Rap for that matter. And if you're a Born & Raised Angeleno, even people from surrounding counties like San Bernardino and Riverside are seen as excluded from the origins of West Coast rap.

Now, with all due respect to the Pacific Northwest, they've had their own scene for decades! But, who considers the Pacific Northwest apart of urban "West Coast" culture? Sir-Mix-A-Lot wasn't Eazy E. So, while the World turned their ears to Los Angeles, Compton, and Long Beach over the past 20-30 years, cities like Seattle & Portland developed their own local music scenes and today boasts some of the richest local music heritage in the country.

With 2019 approaching, we have a new breed of Hip Hop artists that are not only looking to make good music, but nurture a sense of community across local music scenes all over. Pasadena, CA rapper Bing Bing is a standalone artist who's taken personal interest and initiative in helping unite the local music scene in his town. After spending years networking, participating in community outreach, and interviewing hundreds of artists, Bing Bing branched out to Seattle, WA to connect dots and build relationships.

Through his network, Bing Bing was introduced to Legendary Seattle Hip Hop artist Suntonio Bandanaz through Los Angeles/Pasadena based rapper Mr. McStrange. Since meeting, Bing Bing invited Suntonio Bandanaz to feature on his latest single in an effort to begin uniting the West Coast with the Pacific Northwest.

The song is about showcasing the anger, frustrations, and failure one endures when striving to become a better individual. Bing Bing lets the passion flow as he spits lyrics that have weighed his heart. Suntonio Bandanaz follows up on the 2nd verse with a lyrical tale about striving to make change.
