TCB ARtist profile
A multicultural hip-hop artist, Steven Malcolm’s songs are grounded in fiercely-delivered rhymes and a willingness to blur the lines between genres. It’s an approach that’s earned the songwriter five award nominations, more than 41+ million on-demand streams, and an audience that’s just as diverse as his own influences, bridging the gap between the worlds of commercial rap, pop, and reggae. He released an independent album, Monsters Ink, and signed a deal with Word Entertainment, becoming the first rap artist on the label’s roster. If Monster’s Ink turned Steven into hip-hop’s newest up-and-comer, then Steven Malcolm — his self-titled, major-label debut — established him as a commercial juggernaut, with songs like “Hot Boy” and the pop-rap tune “Party in the Hills” becoming hits. He continued crystallizing his sound with 2019’s The Second City, a hard-hitting, lyrically-driven record that focused on messages of hope, redemption, and ambition. “Fuego” highlighted Steven’s Jamaican roots and reggae influences (both of which would be showcased again in 2020, when he teamed up with Shaggy for the larger-than-life “Fuego Remix”). From his cinematic music videos to his diverse, hard-driving music, Steven Malcolm continues making art that breaks boundaries and inspires listeners to become better versions of themselves.
