We’re all the same

Featured artist: Z∆rg of XI – We’re all the same

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Z∆rg of XI.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Z∆rg of XI: Both of my parents were musicians and artists that didn’t pursue their dreams and settled with a job that they are just ’okay’ with. I have always had an overactive imagination, and I have had music in my blood since the zygote stages of my existence. Therefor I felt it was necessary to keep track of my life through making music, it has always been leaking around my subconscious somewhere anyways. Aside from the inspiration I had from my parents, I developed with all sorts of music and became very attuned to it. With that being said, I never think of music as something I create, but something I connect to… something that was already me before I was placed in this crazy atmosphere. I believe that I was meant to make music/art and without it, I might just be another meat-slab on pavement.

If you give 5 different artists the same apple to draw, you are going to receive 5 different apples.

Z∆rg of XI


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I’ve been playing live for about 5-6 years, but have never played a hip hop show.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I’m more of a philosopher than a pun-artist. but here’s one off the top of my head ”Keller gotta’ killer mute-the-mic mocking”

Z∆rg of XI

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I have released one tape, but it was nothing I could be proud of. I am currently working on a tape that will give my last tape a run for it’s broke ass!

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

No, because my crew will have their own label in the near future. I have no say whether a major label has pros/cons because i’ve never experienced being signed by one.

Any last words?

Big ups to the universe, SevenQRTRS (producer, emcee, painter), Mike Wing (emcee), Chim Richolds (emcee), MC Wake (emcee/producer), the 603, Geometry, and most of all my son who is having his 5th birthday today.

Intelligent design the art of creativity

//

Featured artist: JonBlaQ – Intelligent design the art of creativity

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist JonBlaQ.

How did you decide to become an artist?

JonBlaQ: Was introduced to music by my parents at an early age , i remember my dad having me put together a song from a jackson 5 album for show and tell. As i got older i was always involved in church from singing to running the sound etc so music in some capacity was something i was just always around. Around the 6th 7 th grade i would always have melodies and song ideas in my head and would jot them down here or there and HipHop just drew me in. I took Mcing seriously in college after being in a couple singing groups i would still write rhymes for the songs and one day a friend asked me why i never took rapping seriously. From that point on it became my ”thing” and i have been grinding at perfecting the art of Mcing since now im working on my 5th project with my own studio and helping to mentor other artist.

The best advice i think i’ve ever been given was to never follow trends.

JonBlaQ


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I took a break for a year or so but i have shows lined up within the next month.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

i refuse to stop spitting like im chewing on glass

JonBlaQ

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I have two projects set for this year Broken Bars which is coming out March 31 2015, and im half way through the recording process for an album i hope to release at the end of the summer or early fall called Hell or HighWater

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would but thats not something im dying to do or even my goal. Of course the pros are the marketing dollars that are afforded to you to be able to get your product out in front of people. The cons to me at this time lables rarely invest the time to develop artists and everything is so ”single” driven. I understand that its a business but for it to work there needs to be a balance between me as the artist being able to be creative and being able to sell the music. In our current environment there is too much mimicing goin on and not enough creativity.

Any last words?

I’m Reppin Winston- Salem North Carolina,aka the Tre-4, my team from Kingdom Knock (Silent war, Fith Element, Sean Hunter,Bron G, DJ J Lone) My fam from OnourGame and SCP, MzNokz, Seven Da Pantha, Dee Lin, Rem Steele, Equinox, Eagleman, Bob da Wizard, General Watkins, BabyBoyClark,Ras , Mazzini, , Dan Status, Apostle, DJ Cisco, Jae Blacc

Kid LowLieF: When I was at home looking at the BET awards watching these weak rappers getting recognition and performing in front of thousands it showed me the people with no talent can do it I definitely can especially since Im actually blessed with the gift to spit.

New Female Rapper From LA Taking Charts By Storm

//

Featured artist: Kennedy Vie – New Female Rapper From LA Taking Charts By Storm

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Kennedy Vie.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Kennedy Vie: Well Since I was young I’ve been performing. When I was 5 I Was in ”Little Orphan Annie the Broadway Play” and that’s when I fell in love with performing and being on stage. I’ve done music practically my entire life .. 5th grade I started writing songs and raps–granted they were terrible but that’s where I started. I started producing at 15, and due to unfortunate circumstances I took a break from music for a few years.. Last year (2014) after a very traumatic and life-changing event, I pushed myself to go audition for The Voice. At the time we had very little money so I did crowdfunding on GoFundMe.com, and to my surprise I raised $700 in less than 2 weeks. A nice chunk of it was from a very dear friend of mine in Australia, Ciaran, and if it weren’t for him pushing me to go to the auditions when I felt like giving up I wouldn’t be here. I made it to the 5th round on The Voice and got cut because I ”didn’t have the look they were going for that season”. I came back home half heartbroken (which going to Denver and coming back home took around 4 days; I took a greyhound bus) and nearly devastated at the reason they cut me for. Fast forward to a couple months after that and I released my first official single ”Why” (available on iTunes, Amazon, and Google play).. Being cut from the voice really pushed me and gave me a boost of confidence oddly. After my pity party, I thought to myself ”well if I made it to the 5th round — passing the first round which is the hardest — then clearly that means something” .. And now here I am on LAs Top 50 and LAs Hot 100. I’m so grateful for all life has thrown my way because without any of it I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Don’t make music for anyone else but yourself. You’re Kennedy Vie, and you’re going to make Kennedy Vie music whether people like it or not. Keep your head up, you’re going to go very far in this business.

Kennedy Vie


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes, actually, I do. My first official and legit concert was 1/18/15 at Boardners in Hollywood off of Hollywood blvd and Cherokee. It was a blast. I’ve performed other places as well, go to http://ift.tt/1JRIVBP to see where I’ll be performing next!

Best punchline you ever wrote?

From a rap of mine? That’s really hard. Probably ”I heard you talking shit/ and I’m knowing why you hate/ ’cause you look like Rihanna after Chris got to that face…”

Kennedy Vie

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Right now I’m working on my first EP/mixtape titled ”She la Vie”. I’m ALMOST done and I’m eager to get this EP published and posted already. I’m working on my 2nd EP at the same time, and knowing how each EP is going to differ from each other is exciting. I’m constantly trying to push the envelope as a female rapper and ESPECIALLY as a white female rapper.. No one wants to take you seriously or give you the time of day being a white female HIPHOP artist… So because of that I’m always trying to make a new song better than the last song, and really look to my music idols and inspirations for strength and courage and relativity.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes absolutely. The pros: living my ultimate dream, validation, pay off. The cons: in certain situations you could be shelved, not promoted, not resigned, or denied music rights.. It’s rare but it’s happened.

Any last words?

Sure! I’d like to give shoutouts to: My Mother and momager.. I wouldn’t be here without all of your unconditional love and support(also you’re the best business partner I could’ve ever dreamed of), My grandparents for keeping me grounded with all of the buzz around me, My Cousin Joellesa for giving me endless support and sometimes tough love, Corey Sims- my best friend (& CEO of 3L clothing) for giving me some of the best advice, life coaching, and such a genuine friendship, Ciaran Scott for helping me get where I am today I wouldn’t be here without you you’re a true friend, Polar Bear for having patience and faith in me… You are literally bad ass, My dear friend Nick Slack- you know why I’m shouting you out, all of the Kennedians out there I love you all and thank you so much, Repsyte for being one of the best and greatest and most talented artists to work with EVER.. You gave me hope when I was losing some.. And last but not least (I save the most special for last), my beautiful Great Grandmother Margaret Orelli that I love and miss dearly, if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be as fearless as I am now, and I wouldn’t be alive. ”Vie” in my name is a representation and remembrance of her, always.

My Life, My Side, My Story

//

Featured artist: DynastyTheGoddess – My Life, My Side, My Story

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist DynastyTheGoddess.

How did you decide to become an artist?

DynastyTheGoddess: I decided to become a rap artist when I was still in elementary, it was always something about the sound of music and especially hiphop that caught my attention, so ever since then I have been writing every rhyme down on paper that came to my head. I didn’t start recording my music until I made it to highschool when I was around 13 years of age in the 9th grade. I had, and still do have many supporters and motivators. One of my biggest supporters and.motivators was my mom, she has always stood.by my side through it all, and it just hurts me and.makes me want to push my music even further after the day she was murdered. My mom never got a chance to see me perform on stage or see me progress even further. All I ask for is a nice, honest, well respected, and hard pushing motivating record label to sign me because I know I have what it takes to change the game, and by signing me will not only.benefit me, but it will benefit them as well.

The best advice I was given as an artist was ”If you have a dream do not be afraid to seek it, if you really want it you will continue to go after it nomatter what comes in your way”

DynastyTheGoddess


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I did a few concerts, trying to start back doing some more.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

”I wake up, but I’m still dreaming /Eyes open, but I’m still sleeping /Heart stop, but I’m still breathing/ Eyes closed, but I’m still living/ I’m like a living zombie walking round here creeping/ I’ll eat ya brain fuck what you thinking/ Is it heaven or hell in this world we live in?/ My guess is hell cuz its fire I’m feeling!

DynastyTheGoddess

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I am currently working on a new album that is produced by one of my producers in Russia, I have a few more songs out from the past but I’m getting ready to show the world my new work and make history all over again.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes I would sign a record contract for a major label only if they’re as trustworthy and dedicated as I am, and also only if I get my money’s worth, then I will be more than happy to sign and start changing the game.

Any last words?

I want to give a big shout-out to the one who started this all and helped me progress and improve, he is the ceo of our label Slowedvision Entertainment, and he is also my fiance, his name is Cemail Smith aka (Da God Ceemoe).
I also want to give a big shout out to all of my fans, supporters, and my closes friends and family who has always stood by my side and tries to help me live my dreams.

Who Is Loco Mic?

//

Featured artist: Loco Mic – Who Is Loco Mic?

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Loco Mic.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Loco Mic: I always liked to write growing up. I was never afraid to speak from the heart and express what I was feeling. I remember watching my dad write songs and lyrics and him talking to me about what he was singing about.
As time went on my passion for music as a fan turned into a desire to become part of the musical movement myself. I started putting my poetry to instrumentals from my favorite rappers . Later on I hooked up with some people who were making beats and liked what I was doing. After recording my first track I never looked back.

Do what it is you feel inside and try to do it better than anyone else.

Loco Mic


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I play mostly bars and clubs ,with an occasional house party as needed. LOL

Best punchline you ever wrote?

It’s Loco Time!

Loco Mic

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Right nowI’m working on my upcoming album called ”Who is Loco Mic?” Before that I released”Tacos & Beatz” back in 2013-14

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Maybe. It;s still a lot of work regardless, it probably comes down to money and opportunities that working with a major label can get you. You may have to give up creative control at times but it could be worth it.

Any last words?

Hey! Shoutout to my homies Omar B. and Primo, Ghetto T, Gooch, LIL ESE, Shackbeats, AMF, Bossland, Triple Threat, Gson, Crunch Chief, Syndigital media studios, and all my peeps in the Midwest 419. And my spot of B.G. OHIO where the party don’t stop 7 days a week!!

Disturbing The Neighbours

//

Featured artist: 2NOI2Y – Disturbing The Neighbours

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist 2NOI2Y.

How did you decide to become an artist?

2NOI2Y: 2NOI2Y are an English alternative Hip-hop duo from Manchester.

It is their love for music and similar talents, beat boxing, rapping, dancing and music production that brought the two entertainers to form the act 2NOI2Y when the met at MANCAT college. Ever being told they are too loud and very big contrasting personalities, It was their different styles and persona that created their unique chemistry and distinctive sound on and off stage.

Their energy, edge and free spirited music have given them the platform to perform in various venues across the UK promoting their talents in different art forms, and are also known to be big fans of Hiphop Theatre.

Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience and if something isn’t working don’t be afraid to change it.

2NOI2Y


What about concerts? Do you play live?

When we are not working on videos or an EP we do play live at partys, and make club appearances. We have been featured artists for Viva magazine party’s and work party’s.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

2 steps ahead of you hard to get like metaphors, but hard to get, aint hard to get, when you’re working hard to get ahead.

2NOI2Y

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

We have just released an internet video (Treadmillin) about ambition and the desire to reach your goals. We are currently working on a song and video about fitness and working out ”Yolo Dips” which is due this spring, Though we have other side projects like Make a toast a track

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

No, a record contract is a loan, contatly working under preasure to create something that will not only sell and make a profit i think you will find will stiffle your creative vision and possibly lead into using formulae and methods that have been used, which will result in the same sh*t that every other rapper out there is producing, another prototype. On the plus, the marketing power, connections and management is a big nig help. You can pretty much just have to concentrate on the music.

Any last words?

We generally aint big fans of this sort of stuff but on this occasion want to give a Big shout out to Mo who was there during the entire process of shooting the Treadmillin video, and Paul your the sh*t mate, god damnit your the Sh*t! Shout to FMG, and the everyone who has and is supporting us still.

Where can we contact you?

How did you decide to become an artist?

CT K-oth: While growing up I heard ”The Diplomats” right before their peak around ’04. As I indulged in the growing urban culture around me in Hamden/New Haven CT I began to channel my voice and passion through raps. I was always articulate and clever and people took notice. Throughout the years I learned independence was key and I wanted to do things my way so I continually upgraded my home studio and mastered my mixing. People came to listen and speak and so it began…

It’s good to get inspiration from many artist’s but never try to imitate; just take a little of what you can learn from what you admire and make it your own.

Interview with Lock&Load Music!

//

Featured artist: Lock&Load Music Group – Interview with Lock&Load Music!

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Lock&Load Music Group.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Lock&Load Music Group: Its been a long time coming, not just for me (Kaz), but for B as well. B’s been on his music grind for as long as I can remember, I linked up with him before I Moved out to Oregon in 2012, ended up coming back home later that year; and after a few things got sorted out we could get into doing this music shit for real. Turn block money into legit money. I know that without music both of us wouldn’t be sitting here today, music saved our lives. Lock&Load isn’t just a couple of artists, its a family, a bond, a brotherhood; inseparable. A foundation and building block for struggled youth to be taught and mentored.

”Not everyone makes it in this game. Grind.”

Lock&Load Music Group


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yeah, absolutely. 2014 being the inaugural year of LLMG one of our main focuses was getting some shows locally and we were really able to capitalize & get our music into a lot of ears.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I dont know, every one. Haha

Lock&Load Music Group

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

We released a 5 song project early in 2014 called, ”The: EP”, other than that we’ve been in the studio stockpiling new music for a few different things we plan on doing. A two part mix-tape and a little surprise something.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I mean first you hand over a lot of creative control to the label, then there’s sometimes trying to fight for the label’s attention; when youre on your way in its a big pond, small fish, but we’re here to make a name, you know. A label will open a lot of doors, they invest in your records, videos, promotion etc. Having the backing of a label does a lot for a group; if they were willing to support our movement and back all of Lock&load Music and what we’re trying to do then, yes; signing a deal would be very beneficia.

Any last words?

Shoutout Shorty-T first off, dude is fam day one. Shoutout Vermont, Burlington; everybody around there knows who they are, knows there spot, they’re keeping us doing what we do. Kenosha, WI these where B is from, all the fans bangin our stuff, we appreciate everybody. We’ve really built this shit ourselves, no handouts, no introductions; fans that listen and support our movement that’s what we do this for.

Where can we contact you?

Marc Clark

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Feb 19th is the release date of my first ep/mixtape entitled Menace II Society. It’s a piece that speaks for, about, and too the black culture.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I’m looking to stay independent, I would only partner with a record label. Major labels have way more resources then say a small indie label. But the biggest con is the creative control you lose over your branding, name and music. I want to keep and stay true to who I am and what I represent as an artist.

Any last words?

Shoutout to my birthplace Miami, Fl. Much love to my Black community; you’re my biggest inspiration and I am a representation of you, Thank You.

M-Dob: My brother and I, got FL Studio on a computer, when I was 8, and we had a guitar hero mic laying around. I was messing around acting like I was rapping. Then I was like ”How do these rappers rap?”, I listened to some, Eminem, Tupac, and Biggie, and then afterwards, when I was 12, I got serious with rap.

Ignore the ones who hate you, focus on the dream you are trying to achieve.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

I want to, but sadly no.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Stumbling like Jack Sparrow when I’m turnt up and you know it

M-Dob

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I had released 2 mixtapes and an EP. That was when I wasn’t serious with rap, and I am currently working on my debut album.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yeah I would, because you get what they promise to give you than other labels. There is nothing bad about it either

Any last words?

I would like to shoutout to my family

Featured artist: Elteezy – Elteezy’s next moves will shock you!

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Elteezy.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Elteezy: I always had a love for music. I started off as a DJ. As far as writing I wrote poems in class one day I got up in front a class of 35 students said my poems on stage and it turned into a performance. After captivating the audience the feel I felt at that moment plus my teacher said have you ever thought about writing songs. Then I watched music videos and said was going to be me and pursue it every since.

The best advice giving to me as an artist was to never ride the next man or be something you not. Be open to everything attach to nothin. adapt emulate and always be you and the rest will follow! Copyright every song Trademark every merchandise you own. separate business from pleasure. Be patient Stay humble and have Gratitude for all you have.

Elteezy


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes, I Perform live and give memorable concerts.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Evil lurking and the love always blind me; Call me EMT snake all around me;

Elteezy

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I am currently working on ”After The Show” Elteezy’s discography consist of ”I wish I was a Mack”, ”ON Fire”, ”City of Macadornia”, ”Noticed”, ”Hoodlampin”,

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes I would sign a recording contract as long as all parties involved agree on the terms. The pros would be I would have a team to build a brand. I would be doing what I love to do full Time. more opportunities and access to people and things I didn’t have. I could focus on music more instead of trying to do it all myself. I could provide jobs for others. The cons are being away from family on the road for long periods of time. What most artist don’t know is some labels won’t sign an artist unless they are marketable manageable or putting money into their self and sometimes you can sign a deal only to be put on the back burner. Or to see your album sell millions only to find out that you are in debt to the label. or you get your hopes up to become broken heart.

Any last words?

God, My mom, my Dad, wife, my kids, family, friends, Scoob Serious, a big shout out to Rap Beats for this opportunity. All the producers because without them I would not have been heard. All Artists that have Paved the way. All that have shared game time knowledge All my supporting fans, Salt Lake, Detroit, Sacramento, Colorado, California, Texas, NYC, Louisiana, Georgia, Ohio, UK, London, Brazil, Japan and all other states and city’s that support.
