The Coronavirus pandemic has created havoc around the world with some experts calling it even more deadly than the World Wars.
With hundreds of deaths everyday around the world due to the virus, the economy has taken a hit which means some creators, especially those who are independent, are barely making ends meet. We at HHNM decided to do our little part by hosting a Twitter submission where we asked upcoming artists to hit us with their best music.
This #Coronavirus has hit all creators hard so I want to do my bit.
All upcoming artists, reply to this tweet with your best song. I’ll listen to all submissions until 1 pm ET and then post my favorite on @HipHopNMore.
Few rules attached below. Go!
Spread the word please 🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/xtoRVdVGqf

🎧Update on this:
Heard total of: 107 submissions.
Listening time: 5 hours 4 minutes.
Original plan was to post 1 favorite, then I thought about 2 but there are way too many good submissions.
So I will now be posting TEN. 1 selection every day for next 10 days.

We are sticking with our plan of covering the 10 best submissions out of the 107 entries sent to us. After some raps from GATSON yesterday, we have some soul music from North Carolina singer-songwriter CYANA called ‘New Phone, Who Dis?’
Listen to the beautiful record below and lookout for more from our #QuarantineSpotlight series (a play on our Saturday Spotlight series) in the coming days.
