WHAT IT IS: Breakout rap star CJ rose from Staten Island obscurity to the national spotlight in weeks, thanks to his infectious single, “Whoopty.” Highlighting his lean, percussive style, the platinum certified earworm displays CJ’s breathless flows and explosive delivery. Racking up over 270m views on YouTube and 1.2m on TikTok, the track sparked two dance challenges and earned the rising star coveted playlist slots, including Spotify’s RapCaviar and Apple Music’s Today’s Hits while climbing the radio charts. Since his viral track took the drill scene by storm, the platinum-selling artist has dropped a string of high profile collabs with French Montana and Busta Rhymes. Most recently, he teamed up with Latinx stars Anuel and Ozuna for the powerhouse “Whoopty Latin Mix.” With his foot on the gas and a brand-new EP under his belt, CJ plans to show just how versatile he is.
