Active since at least 2017, BEAM is a young Jamaica-born and Miami-raised artist/producer. Son of jamaican artist Papa San, BEAM, formerly known as Tyshane, grew up in a musical environment and starts making music at the age of 10 years old. His production skills got him to produce songs, both solo and as part of the 808&Elites production duo, for the likes of 2chainz, Yo Gotti and Lecrae to name just a few.
From an artistic point of view, BEAM is juggling between flows and influences with so much ease that if one were to think that he suffers from schizophrenia it wouldn’t be such a far-fetched idea. Influenced by his jamaican origins, he raps both in english and in patois. His first project “95” is the perfect business card. It is an explosive mix between trap music, noise rap, dancehall with a zest of pop music that make for a perfect first try for BEAM. Just like a certain SAINt JHN, he is part of this new generation which focuses more on feelings than appearances. Supported by the single “LOST”, 95 might be a cocktail of genres but it has a unique vibe. On the song “95” that samples “Jump”from Kris Kross, BEAM shows his rapping skills with a 90’s flow and cadence. He then has the nerves on the next song, “UNDA ARMOR”, to blend together his “old school” like flow with a nonchalant flow reminiscent of the mumble rap wing of Hip Hop. BEAM can please all the generations with his lyrics and his many flows who can move every listener regardless of their age. The rapper has a long way before him but he’s on the right way. He definitely has talent, the only thing he lacks is a branding that will help him stand out from his peers.
95 is available on every legal streaming platform since october 18.
