Rapzilla freshman, Tommy Royale has a sound that demands attention: upbeat, sharp, and captivating. However, that didn’t just happen overnight. Let’s take a deep dive… Tommy attributes his success to a “symbiotic” relationship between him and producer, Cardec Drums. He teamed up with Cardec less than two years ago – then signed to No Apologies in 2019, and together they are creating a rising force within Latin music, specifically Reggaeton. How did you find your sound? When Cardec asked me to do Spanish music at first I said, ‘no’. Because I was doing Spanish music and nobody was listening. So when […]

The Rapzilla 2020 Freshman list has had the honor of a couple of debut interviews this round. We continue the pattern with our lists’ only producer this year.

I really liked everybody in CHH, and I […]

He appeared on the Survival of the Artist Podcast where he spoke about having his own recording studio to record, produce, and create at age 12.

I hadn’t heard of Nic D until his name was announced as a Rapzilla freshman for the 2020 class. I knew I’d be interviewing him in the near future, so I looked him up on Apple Music, hit “play all,” and took to Google in order to educate myself. His flows are thoughtful and pointed, a mixture of honesty and refinement. The music is easy to listen to, the kind of music that can bring you to a hypnotic trance momentarily. As the background music rose and fell, I began to click his name on YouTube and various sites. He […]
