1800 Tequila and Pusha T have joined forces to create a new musical platform for rising hip hop artists dubbed “1800 Seconds” and the team have just released their first project in the form of a 10-track album.

The 30-minute project features one track each from ten rising hip hop artists hand-picked by Pusha T himself. “Making it in hip-hop is hard—the only things you can control are the creativity and yourself—and new artists on the rise will strive when they know who they are and what they want,” said Pusha T in a press release. “Hip-hop is all about staying connected to culture, being inspired by what’s happening on the streets and translating that to your audience.”

The ten artists are Ant White (Philadelphia, PA), Cartel Count Up (Hampton, VA), Don Zio P (Middletown, CT), Hass Irv (Harlem, NY),Monalyse (Detroit, MI), Nita Jonez (Houston, TX), Sam Austins (Detroit, MI), T Got Bank (Brooklyn, NY), Trevor Lanier (Wilmington, NC) and Tyler Thomas (Los Angeles, CA).
