Today marks the first drop published by Washington, DC rapper Rickky Wokke’s new label, 4K The Label. NEW GHOST by YAYA 4k features Rickky, under a new alias, as Wokke 4k. On selecting YAYA 4k’s track as the label’s debut he commented, “It was a joint decision between me and YAYA 4K, because we both thought the song had potential when we recorded it. So I said f*** it and decided to go with it. ” In regards to YAYA 4K’s debut, 4K The Label stated, “We are very excited for the world to finally meet YAYA 4K.”
Brooklyn-Born YAYA 4K is an artist that moved to PG county, Maryland when he was 8 years old. YAYA 4K is a young, hungry NY drill artist with a reputation to rock rooms with his flow and unique delivery. Some have compared him sonically to the late legend Pop Smoke.
In regards to working with YAYA 4K, Rickky shared, “It’s a family thing whenever we link, always look forward to hear whatever YAYA 4K has been writing on that iPhone 4.”
Touching on the creation of his own label, Rickky expressed how his worldly experiences and business insight could be of value to developing artists – as well as how fellow creatives approaching him for advice and connections inspired this establishment. The collaboration is an example of it’s own in respect to his international presence, if you look at the credits.
4K the Label is an independent record label and we pride ourselves on building artists up authentically. So I’d say there’s no competition between our label and these other labels that are run by machines. Our loyalty to our artists is the uniqueness that sets us apart from others.
When asked, “what should fans keep an eye out for?” He said, ” 4K the Label is building a strong, creative, internationally diverse roster and we’re extremely excited for the world to meet our artists. So definitely keep an eye out for our up and coming artists this year.”
