LightUpp is up next coming out of the Bronx NY with an energy you have never heard or seen before. Heard on Hot 97 and 105.1 having toured with Da$h on the east coast to attending the Latin Grammys via Empire Distribution LightUpp is not new to this but true to this. Shortly after being advised by long time friend TM88 of the 808 Mafia to pursue a career in music lead by the single “Que Lo Que” with Label mate and business partner Cream Da Villain produced by Bobby Kritical who produced hits for K Camp; turned out to be a smash hit. Not only does he record his own music but also manages Thriller Studio NYC premiere recording studio along with Cream Da Villain and Soss House’s own Louie Crack.

The record is his take on Brooklyn Drill Music as LightUpp plays an old man accompanied by 2 young lady’s on a date downtown; literally living out the lyrics on the chorus, “Limping, Pimping”. LightUpp Packs his high energy into his elderly role vibing through the streets of downtown NYC having dinner and ice cream right before he goes to meet with his boys at the trap. The later half of the video is reminiscent of a Cheech and Chong Movie with the old man partying too hard lol. LightUpp gives us how high slash Pop Smoke feels mixed with a Latin version of Da Baby making this a recipe for not only entertaining humorous content but high energy catchy music. His following single shows exactly why he is considered one of the games most versatile and refreshing artist.
“Lord Knows” gives chills as he describes his life in relation to his journey and what was going on in the world during the pandemic quarantine. The Dominican artist displays his versatile skills yet again with an English Bad Bunny Flow on an Alternative hip hop instrumental Prod. by Cody. After giving us “Limpin” , “No Ingles”, and his Brazil/Latin Hit “Grupa” there really is no telling what LightUpp will bring next but what we do know is that it will most likely be a Hit.
High energy and charisma seems to be the formula and it works every time for the Dominican artist hailing from the Bronx. Local support from “The Bronx Native” and Gee Media “Lord Knows” is a visual masterpiece ending off with clips of all that has been going on with he protest and civil rights.
