I was introduced to Pretty Pape$ a couple of years ago by Steven Contreras of Oh That's Filthy, who is also CREATE.Digital Music's Client Experience Manager. I instantly recognized his image and essence as an artist because his energy was authentic. I was initially hesitant to sign him via our joint venture with OTF because I was not yet fully tuned in to his flow and lyrical content. However, the fact that he was Filipino and from Orange County, California made him somewhat of a trap rap unicorn. I trusted Steven, OTF, and my instincts which ultimately backed the Pretty Pape$ movement that you're witnessing today.
I consider myself privileged to have witnessed Pretty Pape$ evolution alongside the growth of his team at OTF. His live stage presence and performance on video inspires his audiences. His songs instigate litness, confidence, camaraderie, and vibrations. Pape$ is consistent and focused, taking full advantage of every opportunity that aligns with his vision.
Vibe with him...

As part of continued efforts to support and uplift the artist community and industry at large amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Spotify is planning to roll out a new feature in mid-April to Spotify for Artists called the Artist Fundraising Pick.
This will enable artists to add a fundraising source to their profile on Spotify. The fundraising effort could be for the artist themselves, for another artist, or for a separate charitable initiative. The goal is to provide a powerful platform for artists to fundraise from fans across the world during this difficult time.
At launch, the feature will support a handful of fundraising platforms, as well as Spotify’s charity partners here.
