New York, NY— Florida Rapper Burga is set to release his 2nd installment of “Permanent Scars” the Deluxe Edition. The 1st edition featured fellow southern cohorts such as Boosie Badazz, Yung Bleu, Derez De’shon, Koly P, Lil Baby’s artist Rylo. The new deluxe edition includes the street approved snapping hit single “Brand New Drip” featuring MoneyBagg Yo.
Since its release during the pandemic, “Brand New Drip” has steadily become a fan favorite, reaching 1 million views in a month. Fast forward 3 million views later, more music fans are noticing the Florida star and his body of work on YouTube page Burga321TV.
Now in 2021, the track has taken on a life of its own, going viral on TikTok. With the viral success of “Brand New Drip” and the pandemic putting things on hold, Burga decided to release a deluxe 2.0 addition of Permanent Scars. The 2.0 features new tracks along with new collaborations, to hold fans over until he is able to hit the road.
When asked about the reason for creating a deluxe edition of his project “Permanent Scars”, Burga said, “The decision came after the pandemic when we weren’t able to tour and promote the project.”
Burga on the come-up
Now, armed with the deluxe version and more songs on the way, Burga is geared to reach fans in person, while still having their ear with his music. “My mission right now is to help as many people as I can through my music,” he said. “I’m here to talk about real shit, but also teach you how to get through it.”
And that is just what Burga has done as his single “Brand New Drip”, which has quickly gained radio play across the country, resulted in it being the 6th most added single at radio in just its first week.
Dallas Texas K104’s DJ Hollywood Bay Bay praised the Florida rapper saying, “Burga is special, the world will see his music touches people!” The track has taken on a life of its own, with people on TikTok making their own videos showing how they drip and get fly.
Growing up in Florida, the streets aren’t all sunshine and palm trees, yet Burga and his family made it work. As the second-eldest of five children, Burga’s older brother K. Low introduced him to hip-hop. He started listening to greats like Tupac, the Notorious B.I.G., and even Lil Wayne and Jeezy before he reached his teenage years. It set the stage for what was to come in his own rap career.
Burga had the hustle in him early, when he found himself in the streets helping to hold his family down at a young age after his parents landed in some tough times. Once he realized the streets weren’t designed for the long game, he still desired the lifestyle it brought him and started taking a rap career more seriously.
Breaking through the noise
Burga cut through the mixtape circuit, dropping a handful of projects and slowly building a buzz. He began opening for major acts like Rick Ross, T.I., Plies, Lil Wayne, and Jeezy, making his dreams come true along the way.
In 2018 Burga released “Keep That Same Energy”, and the project was a game changer, as Burga was slowly breaking out of the Florida coast and grabbing the attention from the rest of the country.
He spent all of 2019 in the studio recording new music daily. By 2020, just as the pandemic started, he released “Permanent Scarsz”, with collaborations including one with the legendary Boosie Badazz. The pandemic thwarted all plans to tour, though it forced Burga to “be creative,” as he puts it.
At the close of the year, “Brand New Drip” arrived with MoneyBagg Yo, crystallizing Burga’s fate as he approaches rap stardom. Stay tuned to Burga’s socials on IG, Spotify and YouTube for more updates on the release of the deluxe addition of “Permanent Scars”.
