Harlem (by way of Little Rock, AR) artist Rent Money wrote, recorded this record while sleeping on the A train at night. What could be more perfect on a playlist that reps New York???!?!?!?!
Aside from Riding the A train into the wee hours of the night...Released as the debut single from Harlem (by way of Little Rock, AR) songwriter Rent Money and featuring Toronto singer/producer Yonatan Watts (Just Chase – “Ego”). Recorded in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn in late 2016, the song was eventually released in November 2017 (revolt.tv/listen/music-hold-rent-money-feat-yonatan-watts-00fe9ae4, Revolt Mag).
Based on the unmistakable experience of growing up broke in the American South, the song was meant to be an anthem of sorts, a virtual “coping song” that finds Rent Money weaving the ‘coming of age’ stories of himself and others. “Hold On” was recorded by Yonatan Watts and mastered by grammy-nominated engineer, Dave Kutch (Jay-Z – 4:44, The Weeknd – Starboy). The single art was shot by fashion designer and photographer, Keiki Bikini (Sports Illustrated, FADER) on location at Fort Tilden Beach (Brooklyn, NY).
“Hold On” is now available on all platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Amazon, etc.

About the Curator - Doran Nelson
Doran Nelson Hailing from the Bronx, New York, upon hearing his first rap record, it was love at first listen. At a time when hip hop was still young, fresh and new he began DJing. Initially Inf began blending his father’s soul records with hip hop instrumentals purchased from the local record stores that his pocket change had become so familiar with. Now, amongst a neighbourhood following and growing demand, his freestyle mixes suddenly became valued. Spinning heads as well as records, before he knew it, Inf found himself hosting block parties, school dances, talent shows and as he proclaims “wherever there were people and music…so was I.”
Naturally,Doran's appreciation for authentic HipHop music has him in the mix of a lot of tastemakers depending on his distinctive taste for up & coming artist. Today doran is a dj over at www.dtfradio with partner and friend named Doggie Diamonds Tv which airs live every Wednesday night 7-9pm via tunein app under DTF RADIO.
