Seattle, WA – Emerging hip hop sensation, Ryan, hailing from the vibrant music scene of Seattle, Washington, is set to drop his highly anticipated second full-length album, “Classic American,” on November 24th, 2023. Following a year of extraordinary growth and numerous accomplishments, Ryan’s latest album promises to be a milestone in his burgeoning career.
Ryan, who officially launched his music career in late 2021, has made significant strides in the industry over the past year, evolving not only as an artist but also as a skilled marketer. His 2022 journey saw him achieve remarkable milestones, including accumulating over 10,000 streams on his collection of singles titled “The Art of War.” This incredible success allowed him to secure a major feature from San Jose rapper “Chow Mane,” collaborate on a merch collection with Breaking Sound, and ink a partner distributor deal with Symphonic Distribution. He also performed at a prestigious artist showcase during the renowned South by Southwest (SXSW) festival and embarked on a series of live shows with Washington rapper Leebotracks.
After these significant achievements, Ryan embarked on the creation of his album “I KNOW I’M PRETTY,” featuring two lead singles, “PRETTYBOY” and “KYLE,” both accompanied by captivating music videos. The video for “PRETTYBOY” is a collaboration with Family Video Store, a New York-based Asian queer-led company. Ryan then embarked on another project, a mixtape titled “b&w!,” and to promote its release, he launched three singles, later incorporated as bonus tracks for the mixtape, and collaborated with Vida Mate, a Pacific Northwest-based yerba drink company. By the close of 2022, Ryan had amassed an impressive discography of over 20 songs, setting the stage for the forthcoming release of “Classic American.”
In addition to the support from various platforms and media outlets, Ryan’s music has received airplay on Breaking Sound Radio, POWER 102.8 LA, WTL Radio in New Jersey, and numerous online stations through Radio Airplay.
The third and final single leading up to the release of “Classic American” is “Parental Advisory.” This track, which has already gained significant attention and acclaim, delves into Ryan‘s personal struggles with his parents, where he candidly expresses feelings of neglect and shame for the path he’s chosen in life. He opens up about being a college dropout and feeling like he’s made poor decisions, ultimately turning to music as an emotional outlet and creative platform. “Parental Advisory” showcases Ryan’s willingness to tap into his emotions and transform pain into art.
In the accompanying music video, viewers witness a poignant portrayal of Ryan clutching stuffed animals, flowers, and symbolic items that represent the love, affection, and parental care he craves and believes was taken from him. By wearing a suit, Ryan illustrates his journey into adulthood, while the contrast between these adult elements and the childish items in the video creates a visually striking aesthetic and conveys a subtle, thought-provoking message for those who choose to delve deeper.
“Parental Advisory” serves as the sixth track on Ryan‘s upcoming album, “Classic American,” which is poised to drop in its entirety next month, on November 24th, 2023. Fans and music enthusiasts alike can expect a compelling and deeply personal narrative woven throughout the album.
