Following the success of Clear The Air, a project that dropped earlier in the Summer, East Harlem’s Billionaire Burke has dropped his new project correctly titled Refuse To Fail, which is already climbing up the Spotify ranks.
The 14-track album under the EMPIRE/BBMG imprint is a classic project with various melodic and hard-hitting beats with a touch of some of that New York Drill incorporated on it. Burke collaborated with artists Sy Ari Da Kid, Sleepy Rose, Reese Money, Taleban Dooda, Eli Fross, and more to give the fans a concrete universal project.
Refuse To Fail is out now on all digital media platforms.

Empire Records rapper Billionaire Burke released his second EP Clear the Air together with a dope visual for “Dead Game” garnering placement on two Apple Music playlists & debuting at #2 on Audiomack Hip Hop & Rap Trending list. The EP features a mix of drill and hip hop records and was executive produced by rapper/producer Kool Dre, a kid out of East Harlem where Burke grew up. Other producers on the project include Trip Lavine, Swerve, and Youngmadz. Hard-hitting drill beats flow through Billionaire Burke’s quick lyrics about his life selling dope, his set, living life on the streets, and the east side. The lead single “WhG5pty” has over 1 million streams, the video has over 1 million views and the single is now playing on Power 105.1 NY and Hot 97 radio.
“Dead Game”, shot and directed by JL Shot That, was filmed in East Harlem with Burke, Kool Dre and their set in the project buildings where they grew up. Shortly after releasing, Billionaire Burke kicked off a virtual tour in NY with DJ Drewski, went to CT with Stevey Newnez and moved up and down the east coast with stops at Stationhead, @itsrichz IG live, and Remi TV. His tour was cut short in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. RIP George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and all of our other fallen brothers and sisters.

Hailing from the streets of East Harlem, Billionaire Burke is a rap artist and a respected creative that conveys relentless determination in pursuing his passions. His aspirations are reflected in his daily hustle, rapid growth, and can be found throughout the lyrics of his debut project entitled Rise To Greatness, which was released under a partnership with Empire in August 2019. He has built a strong foundation to notably house other emerging artists with the development and backing of his boutique record label, BBMG (Billionaire Burke Music Group).
All in all, Billionaire Burke is on track to become a household name in 2020. Although Burke has recently advanced within his professional career, his active lifestyle in the streets once created a barrier between him and music. With the absence of family, Burke struggled to financially support himself leading to incarceration at an early age. Fighting past misguided trust, hardship after hardship, and constant betrayal, Burke used his losses to win and decided to heavily pursue his rap career in 2014. In March 2019 Billionaire Burke landed a deal with Empire and hasn’t looked back since.
Billionaire Burke and platinum recording artist Gunna release the visual for their smash single “My Slime”. The upbeat, catchy track has debuted on the urban charts, landing at #56 this week on radio and collecting over 6 million total streams. The highly anticipated video, directed by Be EL Be, was shot in Atlanta GA and is just as vibrant as the track.
