Riverside Louis releases new single ‘Stay Down’

The songwriter and producer of hip hop known as Riverside Louis has released his latest official single, “Stay Down.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Gritty, direct, and built on an undeniable back beat, “Stay Down” showcases Riverside Louis as one of the most striking hip hop artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Harlem’s Riverside Louis cites as main artistic influences Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Jay Z, DMX, and the Notorious B.I.G. Riverside Louis’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on smooth lines, clever rhymes and a razor-sharp delivery, “Stay Down” by Riverside Louis has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Stay Down,” Riverside Louis writes, “This song ‘Stay Down’ is about trying to convince someone it will be worth it and beneficial if they stay loyal and hold it down and wait how long it takes for the other person to get they self together, because money don’t define ya character. It also has a message for people like myself, that we need to build with each other, other than do what people want us to do.”

Riverside Louis also says his music is intended to stand for itself.

“Now my music is just that,” he says. “It’s music. My music is that old feel of actually hearing quality rap music which is fun, inspiring and motivating.”

Riverside Louis grew up in the birthplace of rap music, Harlem and the Bronx, New York City. He’s been rapping original lines since the age of nine.

Stay Down” by Riverside Louis is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, hip hop fans.
