New Music: “Hold On” by Rent Money ft. Yonatan Watts Rent MoneyKC Orcutt

Little Rock, AR native Rent Money has been building an organic following through word of mouth and live performance experiences in New York City, with his new song impressively and curiously marking his first formal release.

Rent Money, the descendant of New York Times bestselling author Alex Haley (Roots, Malcolm X), is dedicated to keeping up his bloodline’s tradition of being a top-tier wordsmith, with his latest song, “Hold On,” showcasing his polished songwriting abilities as he crafts an introspective earworm and weaves between rapping and subtle crooning.

The melodic track, which was engineered by Dave Kutch (JAY-Z, 4:44, The Weeknd, Starboy, Beyoncé, Lemonade), marks a strong first entry to his catalog, with Toronto songwriter and producer Yonatan Watts lending his talents as well. Rent Money is currently gearing up to release his currently untitled debut EP.
