Bringing Back Authentic and Refreshing Hip Hop Rhythms: Artist-Activist Optimistic Unveils New Single

Breathing life back into the tried and tested Hip Hop and Rap genres, rising artist Optimist is set to amaze the music industry, as he energizes listeners with his unique and exciting new single, “K.M.A”.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania– June 21st, 2021 – Breaking away from the mainstream Rap and Hip -Hop scene, rising singer and song writer, Optimistic is staying true to his name, spreading light and positivity through music. An eclectic artist, Optimistic’s musical compositions are a refreshing new take on the genre, with memorable song writing and upbeat soundtracks that inspire and enthrall listeners.

With the release of his new single, aptly titled “K.M.A”, the budding artist rekindles hope, light, and the unbreakable spirit of perseverance in the face of the many life struggles that entrap everyone. Aiming to reach new audiences to motivate, Optimistic intends to change the focus of Rap from hurting people and disrespect towards catalyzing collective positive feelings and sentiments. With this focused drive, Optimistic is aiming to create positive drill music, staying true to himself and his distinct musical sound.

With tracks such as “Unbreakable” and “K.M.A”, which he unveiled in 2021, the growing artist continues to showcase a distinctive musical flow, captivating listeners with a diverse vibe, which is different from the current wave of Rap.
