New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Lyda official website) The new single from Lyda entitled "Always Won" is now available as a free download through his Soundcloud site at http://www.soundcloud.com/lyda.
The track features the sultry vocals of Eden King and expands upon the groundwork that the Los Angeles based and New York bred rapper and producer has been building over the past several months.
Lyda has put the track out for FREE - as HE has with many others in the past - with the hopes that DJ's, producers and other taste makers will help him spread the track virally - as THEY have in the past - to further build his reputation as a top level hip hop impresario on the rise.
"At this point in my career, its all about the music," Lyda remarked "If I offer a tune for free, and the track is hot, then people will want to buy the album when it drops, they will want to come to the shows when i am in town, they will want to buy the merchandise and follow me on social media etc. it's almost a Pay it Forward mentality and so far it's been working well, people are really buying in".
The emerging MC has also been gathering momentum with performances in Cincinnati, OH (where he also shot a video his track "Call of the Wild featuring Young Brooks), and in New York for a showcase at the nightclub Spa Fridays at Zacharys and a show at Revolution in Amityville for a TV taping and interview on the Verizon Fios1 segment "Rick's Rising Stars". More shows in LA and NYC are planned for this Fall, as well as new music.
