CEO Verse is back and motivated with a new single “Locking In” after recent viral video

VIDEOS

Getting into the music business is one of the hardest accomplishments an artist will attempt and there is no book to help you navigate the life an artist wants to succeed in. Hip Hop brings a lot of up and downs, false narratives, and expectations. Sometimes it gets to a point where you want to quit and move on to something different. Once you get your feet in the ground and grynd your way to the open doors you start to respect the journey and finally decide that you are “Locking in”

Richmond, VA artist CEO Verse understands the difficulties the music business can bring you. As an artist he spent a lot of money looking and living like a rapper but not benefiting from the lifestyle he was delivering. As a result, it decided to take a break from music.

Redirecting his mindset and focusing on his craft CEO Verse made the decision to release new music and came back strong with single Locking In produced by OKpetre. The title along speaks to what his vision and direction is and when you hear the delivery you will understand why he is “Locking In”.

Sharp wordplay and relatable concepts describe CEO Verse in a few words with an understanding that its deeper than rap. Speaking to streets and the fans to love his music will take him further than he has ever been before.

Leading up to the release of Locking In, Verse went viral on several major sites for his ‘smoking hairdryer video‘.

STREAM ‘SMH’

19yr old Seth Mercer made his debut as SMERCO with his first release “Supreme Dreams” on April 1st produced by Caaprie. “Supreme Dreams” was written to express SMERCO’s desire for a different life, something he’s dreamed of since a kid and Supreme is one of his favorite brands.

Music and the music industry have been in his life since he was born. His grandfather managed Cleveland based group, the Dazz Band (“Let It Whip”) and his mother is well known in the industry having held promotion positions with various record labels and managing a local artist. This has allowed SMERCO to spend a lot of time on the road, in radio stations and recording studios.

It was in his freshman year at Ohio State that he was introduced to making music as a hobby that quickly turned into a passion and a skill for writing. He hasn’t been honing his skills long but his determination and passion are quickly making SMERCO a fresh face and sound to keep an eye on. Since “Supreme Dreams”, he’s had 2 standout singles “For Me” & “Staying Humble” that have collectively hit close to 100k streams on Spotify!

Now SMERCO is back with his latest single, “SMH” produced by AG. The video, shot by Flicks by Carter is out now and you can catch his 1st LIVE performance at the Odeon in Cleveland, OH on September 10th
