WhoHeem is part of a talented crew of young and fast-rising new artists from San Bernardino including KingMostWanted, MCM Raymond, and Kay Da Bandit. All four are on the independent label 8PETOWN which started out as a promotion company called 8K. They put on local shows with artists like Roddy Rich, 03 Greedo, Blueface, and more, cultivating a vibrant scene in the Inland Empire and eventually signing artists within their community. In the past year, they’ve helped to shepherd a number of their artists to vitality, including WhoHeem who’s song “Let’s Link” went massively viral this summer – perfect timing for him as it happened during a period of homelessness and helped to get him back on his feet. Now he’s got a Billboard Hot 100 hit with over 75 million streams and an impressive 2+ million video submission on TikTok, debuting at 20 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists Chart and peaking at number 3 on Rolling Stones’ Breakthrough 25 Chart.
