9bills Cloud9 Sessions – The Story so far

The sun barely shies away from artists in the limelight. 9bills® Cloud 9 sessions brings together upcoming artists to reach new heights and showers listeners with euphoric new music experiences in summer 2022.

New season; new talent, new studio, new patent, new angles, new gloss, new flows, new floss.

First off we had 19 year old DHILLZ’. His delivery is nothing short of mature. It’s so smooth it’ll remind you of a cool evening cruise. DHILLZ takes us straight to the first destination with precision, bravado, and like your favourite ex you try not to mention, will have you on Cloud 9 in 3 mins or less .

DHILLZ was recently hailed for his Fumez The Engineer’s ‘Plugged In’ competition submission, exclusively played on Kiss FM’s ‘Kiss Nights’, collaborated with Morley’s chicken shop in association with Brixton Chamber Orchestra and has garnered unwavering support from the likes of Bernice Boateng & family.

Being picked up by TikTok Music curators across the UK Dhillz’ session was an excellent season opener. 

JD Cliffe

Next we had JD CLIFFE who certainly raised the heat and brought all the smoke in his up-tempo offering. The jumpy, funky beat paired with JD CLIFFE’s churlish lyrics will have listeners jumping out of their seats.

Being more accustomed to autotune and much more chilled rap, it’s refreshing to see JD use this opportunity to step out of his comfort zone. Although he’s verified on social media, he has under 2k followers yet 100x more streaming numbers and has featured on COLORS. His Cloud 9 session speaks for itself.


Maasai 9bills Cloud 9 session artwork

MAASAI flies us out to a tropical resort with a Spanish guitar tinted session, seduced with feminine, falsetto backing vocals, tamed by his masculine self-assured bars and a running word play theme of substance, abundance, and admiration.

A segue from his critically acclaimed, Mixtape Madness recommended, K Trap cosigned project ‘Galería’, handpicked for the 9bills ‘Scouted’ column and playlist, MAASAI adds more brushstrokes to the layers of the picture he is currently painting of himself as an artist in potentially overlapping scenes.

Maasai draws inspiration from one of rap’s OGs Nines and its fair to say Nines appreciated it!
