Empire Records rapper Billionaire Burke released his second EP Clear the Air together with a dope visual for “Dead Game” garnering placement on two Apple Music playlists & debuting at #2 on Audiomack Hip Hop & Rap Trending list. The EP features a mix of drill and hip hop records and was executive produced by rapper/producer Kool Dre, a kid out of East Harlem where Burke grew up. Other producers on the project include Trip Lavine, Swerve, and Youngmadz. Hard-hitting drill beats flow through Billionaire Burke’s quick lyrics about his life selling dope, his set, living life on the streets, and the east side. The lead single “WhG5pty” has over 1 million streams, the video has over 1 million views and the single is now playing on Power 105.1 NY and Hot 97 radio.
“Dead Game”, shot and directed by JL Shot That, was filmed in East Harlem with Burke, Kool Dre and their set in the project buildings where they grew up. Shortly after releasing, Billionaire Burke kicked off a virtual tour in NY with DJ Drewski, went to CT with Stevey Newnez and moved up and down the east coast with stops at Stationhead, @itsrichz IG live, and Remi TV. His tour was cut short in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. RIP George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and all of our other fallen brothers and sisters.
