Today, hip-hop teen breakout artist Sugarhill Ddot releases the emotional new single “Stressed Out.”

Unfiltered and nostalgic, the rough-and-ready HectorSoundz (Post Malone) produced anthem finds the young MC letting the world in on some hometown truths. He continues to showcase his diversity as an artist on “Stressed Out,” his most vulnerable record to date.

On the meaning behind “Stressed Out,” Sugarhill Ddot says, “If you feel stressed out keep going. Never let your emotions get the best of you.”

“Everyday I’m stressed out, gotta get a check now … I miss the old me, I miss the old days,” the 15-year-old Harlem rapper reminisces over hypnotic, bass-heavy percussion complemented by an interwoven piano and guitar. Full of wisdom and confidence beyond his years, “Stressed Out” finds Ddot growing as an artist and as a person. 

“Stressed Out” follows quickly on the heels of the dance-ready Shake It,” the fiery “Make A Mess,” and the Miami-inspired “3AM In The Yams,” Ddot’s recent collaboration with Luh Tyler. That track quickly made waves, hitting over one million video views in less than a week. Right out of the gate, V Magazine featured it in its New Music Roundup, noting: “The new track has all the necessary ingredients to be your next summer anthem. Go add this celebratory track to your pregame playlist!” “Stressed Out” also follows performances opening for Lil Durk in Chicago and Toosii in New York. On the horizon Sugarhill Ddot has upcoming tour dates with fellow drill teen DD Osama which includes stops in Boston, New York, Chicago, and Washington D.C.

Ddot is fast becoming one of the most exciting performers in New York’s burgeoning drill scene. On YouTube, his self-released tracks I Wanna Love You, Dream” and The Real Purge have racked up over 15 million combined views — and those conventional metrics only capture a small slice of this phenomenon in the making. To date Sugarhill Ddot has amassed over 34 million streams in the U.S. alone in his budding career.
