FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (New York, NY) – Labeled one of the most coveted artists of 2022
by Disrupt Magazine, Dominican-American rapper LightUpp has released a steady stream of
high quality music and videos that have received a healthy heap of recognition and airplay
from major platforms including Hot 97, Power 105.1, and REVOLT TV.
The video for his infectious single “No Inglés” – produced by The Connect (Travis Scott, Diddy,
Big Sean) and directed by Cole Eckerle – shows LightUpp jogging and counting money in the
suburbs of “White America” while police sirens flare in the background, a metaphorical nod to
police brutality and to escaping the streets that swallow so many young men of color.
The video has already garnered over 185,000 views since its release, highlighting the public’s
connection with LightUpp, his message of authenticity, and his persuasively candid delivery.

Lightupp is a Dominican-American rapper and producer hailing from the Bronx, New York.
Having recorded and produced music for himself and artists throughout the East Coast for
nearly 10 years, Lightupp’s influence can be heard and felt throughout the hip-hop and R&B
landscape. Songs like “Limpin”, “WiP”, and “The Plan” solidified him as a talented artist and
creative force, while his time as a successful audio engineer and studio manager brought him
closer to New York’s artist community. Having contributed to the success of talents such as
Oshun, Nuri Hazzard, and Cream Da Villain, Lightupp released a stream of singles and projects
of his own, leading to airplay on New York’s Hot 97 and Power 105.1 radio, an opening slot on
a multi-city tour of the east coast with New Jersey rapper DA$H, and an appearance at the
Latin Grammy Awards via Empire Distribution. Records like “Lord Knows” and “Grupa” show
Lightupp’s versatility as an artist. Whether rapping in English or Spanish, his infectious energy
and charisma shine through, while his creative and sometimes outlandish music videos are
reminiscent of stars like Ludacris, DaBaby, and Missy Elliot. With the support of industry
veterans like TM88 of 808 Mafia, Ghazi Shami of Empire Distribution, and Louie Crack, it’s only
a matter of time before the world knows the name Lightupp.
