Today, Roc Nation’s Brooklyn rapper HDBeenDope dropped his latest single “Locked In” co-produced by multi-platinum music producer Dizzy Banko.. His latest single delivers the rapper’s signature rapid-fire bars and high energy beat that fans have expressed their hunger for.  

“The song is about getting focused and connected, it comes from a time where I had to know the end result before anybody else did,” said HDBeenDope. “Locked in is just the energy.”

Teased last month, “Locked In” continues to amass millions of views on TikTok which features HD, his crew and producer Dizzy Banko wrapping up a studio session with the final mix. The Roc Nation artist kept fans swarming with a digital campaign that challenged followers to unlock a ROC-approved release date last week, building sweeping demand for the track after its teaser introduction earlier this year.

To commemorate his latest single, the artist is celebrating his New York roots by giving back to his hometown community in Brooklyn at the Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy where he will be hosting a pop-up performance and giving away school supplies and merchandise to students. 

With recognition from the BET Hip-Hop Awards, co-signers such as DJ Khaled and Rapsody and many others, the Brooklyn Native’s breakthrough return follows his 2022 EP project, What Can They Say, also produced by Dizzy Banko, which marked HD’s debut as a signed Roc Nation artist. Today’s new track release also builds on the massive success of What Can They Say’s lead track, “Mamba” which has slowly become an anthem being celebrated and shared by actress and entrepreneur Tia Mowry,  NBA Miami Heat player Jimmy Butler, major networks like ESPN, and sports stadiums across the country. 

With the co-signing support of music icons like DJ Khaled and major producers like Earl On The Beat (prod. For Megan Thee Stallion, Migos, Lil Yachty) championing his work, the artist continues to attract the attention of other major influences in the rap game. HD’s steady climb up the New York hip-hop scene is propelled by his wide range of self-directed music videos, dynamic musical concepts of his alter ego, hard-hitting lyricism, and magnetic storytelling.
