This track is a musical medicine offering to the people of Azania. An offering for the ones who were forced to exile at a young age due the brutal inhumane system of apartheid. For the exiled who couldn’t return home for decades. For the exiled who never got a chance to return home. For the mother’s and families who waited year after year for their loved ones.  

This track is for the children who chose freedom over fear and liberation over oppression. This musical medicine is for the young people of today to know their history, honor their Ancestors and to never doubt their power!

[New Release] Nugget De Serko Good Game


For Immediate Release

(WARM BREW)

deSerko
"NUGGET"

RELEASE DATE APRIL 16TH 2021
GOOD GAME RECORDS




deSerko aka Serk Spliff of L.A.’s legendary rap group Warm Brew, debuts his first of three singles with a sultry love letter to the one that almost got away “Nugget”. deSerko’s classic warm delivery dives into emotional bars of reflection, heart ache and regret over the years of touring the world breaking hearts and bourbon bottles, while the one he loves is at home picking up the pieces. deSerko remends matters of the heart over piano chords, infectious high hats and a westside bass line to reveal lessons learned from mistakes along the way has made the love more real than ever. He fucked up and isn't afraid to speak heavy on it. Nugget is a song for all who need a voice for the mistakes made with the one they love.




2021 deSerko Release Calendar

4/16 - "NUGGET" (Single) *Click here for advance link

5/21 - "WHHW' (Single/Video)

6/11 - CAN'T FIRE ME,I QUIT (Remix LP)

7/23 - "LOUD Is SILENCE" feat. City James & Ray Wright (Single)

9/3 - THE MOROSE ROSE IS IN BLOOM (Full Length Album)

    


After a decade as one-third of critically-acclaimed Los Angeles rap group Warm Brew, deSerko has defied F. Scott Fitzgerald’s assertion that American lives have no second acts. Years of studios, stages, and contentious label meetings left him temporarily weary but forever wiser. Since going solo, deSerko has become a burgeoning screenwriter who’s also making the best music of his career. His 2020 EP, You Can’t Fire Me, I Quit , finds him spitting refined and more poignant versions of his intricate, literate, and introspective verses.

“I feel more confident in who I am as a person, and that’s given me the ability to make this music,” deSerko explains. “I’ve written some of the best stuff I’veever written before because I just feel free.”

The Morose Rose in Bloom (GoodGameRecords), deSerko’s first solo album, marries his rap skills with his literary inclinations over progressive West Coast beats. John Fante’s romantic optimism meets Hunter S. Thompson’s psychedelic, doom-filled cynicism and 2Pac’s thug passion. Somewhere between Ask the Dust and the softer sides of All Eyez on Me The Morose Rose in Bloom profoundly reflects on deSerko’s first act while confidently moving into the next.

The deSerko biopic opens in Santa Monica, where he was born Chris De La Rosa. The son of a Nicaraguan mother and a half-Black, half-Irish father, deSerko was raised primarily by his mother and extended Latino family. Before Santa Monica became Silicon Beach, a culturally barren expanse of cold brew coffee shops, yoga studios, and tech startups, deSerko roamed the city’s rougher sections while bumping Lil Wayne’s 500 Degreez . A college- caliber soccer player, he spent his time at Santa Monica High School playing for a championship-winning team. When he joined best friends and classmates Ray Wright and Manu Li in Warm Brew, though, deSerko felt compelled to win in the booth. Their deep bonds and natural chemistry translated to records that resonated with them as much as they did their Dogtown peers.

Warm Brew began making stoner anthems for Venice Beach denizens, collage- friendly to odes to cheap beer and one-night stands. After years of backyard shows up and down PCH, they matured into a voice for the West Side’s disenfranchised Black and Brown communities, the self-proclaimed “ghetto beach boyz.” A deal with Dom Kennedy’s OPM led to a deal with Red Bull Records. They dropped increasingly stellar music, sold out The Roxy, toured the world, and garnered praise from publications like NoiseyComplex, and LA Weekly. B ut friction with the label and the growing pains of early adulthood left them forever on the verge of collapse. In 2020, the decade-long ride ended. Though the group has indefinitely disbanded, deSerko remains close with his friends-turned-collaborators and thankful for every success and setback.

“I’m grateful because we have some truly loyal fans that have been riding with us forever,” deSerko says. “And they’re gonna continue riding with us.”

The Morose Rose in Bloom will resonate with Warm Brew fans and bring new fans into the fold. deSerko thoughtfully navigates the bliss and frustrations of true love, balancing relationship records with those that offer penetrating insight into LA rap life and his newfound artistic outlook. “For the first time in a long time, I’m making music strictly for the love of it. I want people to listen to and love the music, but this is for me.”

About:

The prolific Baltimore Producer/Emcee Sean-Toure’ Thames has officially released his 2ndsingle called “That Blackness” from his forthcoming Melanin Magic, Melody, and the Maker album (coming summer 2021).

Energetically taking on the self-produced beat mixed and mastered by DJ CamOne, Sean praises the melanin his skin bears while giving similarly pigmented listeners the confidence to do the same. In the process, Sean addresses white supremacy with bold lines like, “I’m not your n$gga, or your coon, or your Negro. I swear to God I’m not something that you’re used to!"

The single (currently getting mass airplay on college and internet stations) follows Sean’s announcement of the Summer 2021 release of the new album, Melanin Magic, Melody, and the Maker featuring appearances from Hip Hop legends Ras Kass, Sadat X of Brand Nubian, and many others.

Sean has been having a great year already with the release of his first single “Garveyite” continuing to get spins all over the globe.
