The songs on the album The Worst Generation by N.E.A.R. are a journey through the various emotions felt in the artist’s life. The album starts with great joy and ends in darkness and shows the unstable mind of the artist, where he feels good one second, and suicidal the next. The trap album is built with many different sounds, including anime sounds, cute Japanese vocals, a feature from a Japanese artist, distorted guitar, distorted synths, loud 808s, heavy basses, and loud double snares. It is almost like being in a roller coaster with dynamic sounds of Korea, Japan, and USA.
Born in Korea, N.E.A.R. has moved around a lot in his life from New York to Japan. Encompassing all his experiences, he pushes to introduce a new feeling in the music industry with heavily Japan-Korea influenced sounds and melodies.

“Not Yet A Star” by Lawson J is a hip hop / rap song that every upcoming artist can relate to. The bitter taste of people giving you excellent feedback on your songs but not willing to share it because you are not successful enough or famous yet, or worse, people who ignore your messages for the same reason.
Lawson J—singer, songwriter, composer, producer—makes contemporary pop that mixes R&B, hip hop, rap, Latin, and soul thanks to his influences through artists such as Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, and Michael Jackson, whom his parents played every day during his childhood, as well as contemporary artists like Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, or huge artists and producers like Dr. Dre.
Junior creates all his songs from A to Z, in his bedroom, as his official debut single “Ahí Aye,” a catchy summer song, composed during the 2020 quarantine, “Maria,” evoking the struggle of domestic violence through the eyes of a friend who feels like he’s just a powerless witness, or “Stay Together” talking about summer loves and how the end of it can be heartbreaking.
With his last release, “Not Yet A Star,” Lawson J expresses the painful reality of being an artist but not famous enough to make people pay attention.

“Spazz Out” by Jay Staxx is a hip hop club banger, with a summer turn up pool party events type vibe.
Jay Staxx is a co-founder and artist of Loyalty Over Royalty Records, a family business based out of San Diego, CA but Jay Staxx is originally from St. Louis, MO. In the words of Jay Staxx: “I have a big fan base that knows me as the character Diaper Man. I rap, freestyle my songs, dance, and act. I have been rapping for three years now and dancing my whole life. Dance was my first passion. I accumulated a big following in October 2018 for the role I played as Diaper Man going viral on multiple platforms numerous times. Then in April of 2019 tragedy struck with the passing of my mother (R.I.P Tameka Russell). I took it really hard , especially because the last time I had seen her was 5 years before she passed, and our last memory we had together is I took her to the mansion parties in Los Angeles, CA (Smile). With that being said everything that I worked hard to achieve before she passed I found myself giving up on, but now “I’m back like Gucci Mane.” #IfYouKnowYouKnow #SpazzOut”
