Porsh Bet$ / I Used To Think Forever

If you haven’t listened to “Peanut Butter” by Porsh Bet$ by now, I suggest that you take the time to give the song a listen – it’s never too late to hop on the bandwagon. Today, I am excited to highlight the 21 year old from Harlem, who has given us yet another reason to believe that he could be nearing in on a big time breakthrough soon. If there was one thing that I’ve found to really push an artist’s career forward quickly,  it would be consistency and ever since popping out of nowhere towards the tail end of 2020, Porsh Bet$ has been on his game when it comes to releasing frequently and also dropping quality product every time. While I’ve personally been struggling to find a ton of heat recently, Bet$’ newest offering is a breath of fresh air that I’m going to keep on repeat.

On Wednesday, July 21st, Bet$ shared his debut EP, “I Used To Think Forever”, with the world and it has got to be one of my favorite projects from an up-and-comer in quite some time. From top to bottom, Bet$ shines in the six-track EP that showcases how versatile his sound really is. Produced by KoOoLkojAk (Kesha, Nicki Minaj, Doja Cat), Bet$ moved all the way across the country to Los Angeles, where he couch surfed for a year to work with the accomplished producer and complete this EP. Speaking about the EP a bit more in-depth, Bet$ said, “It’s influenced by my personal growing pains and journey to becoming more myself and open to expressing myself in different ways.” Whether it be “Apple Eyes” or “November Rain”, Bet$ blessed us with six songs that are truly captivating in their own unique ways and I urge you all to check it out.

Alongside the EP, Bet$ also dropped a fire visual to his record “Handle” which is on the EP. This one is crazy so if you have an extra minute or two to check it out, you will not be disappointed.
