From Boston to the world, artist, producer and Massachusetts-native Rapta is becoming one of the most resounding and authentic young voices in cutting edge hip-hop. With a focus on melody, his syllable-bending flow performs at the same calibre as the pop-trap crooners that inspired him to start his artistic journey, and he is fast matching their stratospheric trajectory with his unmistakable artistic vision. A relative newcomer and yet the world is fast catching on, his millions of streams continue to rise as he catches the ears of tastemakers far and wide.
Listen 'Invitation' :
In an industry dominated by trends, virality and co-signs, Rapta is the antithesis. Rather than churning out throwaway projects that may expedite overnight success, he opts for a more timeless route, crafting projects layered with envelope-pushing creativity and rife with his distinct personality.
With his third single of the year, “Invitation” switches gears from the moodier, trap-laced shades of his sound we’ve heard thus far, to a more buoyant, summery aesthetic without losing an ounce of his distinct character. Produced by multi-platinum producer KC Supreme (Lil Uzi Vert, Future, Juice WRLD), Rapta invites you to join him on his compelling rise to the top.
Speaking to his creative process, he states, “I don’t like doing the long paragraph text or writing a novel to express my feelings; I put it in the music”. Leading on to outline his forthcoming single, “This is my invitation to shorty inviting her to come hold it down. I mean the song speaks for itself’’.
