Hailing from the city of Watts, CA, McKinley Ave is poised to takeover the rap game in 2016.
McKinley Ave teamed up with fan-favorite RJ for a new track titled “No Regular,” which features production from Mike Free and DJ Fu of the Eardrummers. The melodic hook and laid-back beat mixed with McKinley Ave’s street raps about living the good life are sure to become a West Coast anthem.
His first single “No Regular” featuring RJ and produced by Mike Free and DJ Fu of the Eardrummers is a melodic track that embodies his lifestyle and street pedigree.

Following in the footsteps of fellow hometown artists Bangloose, Glasses Malone, & Jay Rock, he carries on the legacy of the city that made him, but brings his own unique style that separates him from the rest. McKinley Ave mixes his street credibility with hard-hitting production to create a sound that resonates beyond the confines of West Coast hip-hop. He has managed to build off of the recent emergence of rap coming out of Los Angeles, while blending in elements from other regions, whether it be through switching up his rhyme pattern or rapping over a trap beat.
Expect to hear more from McKinley Ave as he puts the finishing touches on a new project with features from Young Dolph, Nipsey Hussle, Migos, Joe Moses and more. Just based on the features, this project is something we’ll be looking forward to.
