Cape Town Hip Hop’s Sleeping Giant

Featured artist: J-Dubz CPT – Cape Town Hip Hop's Sleeping Giant

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist J-Dubz CPT.

How did you decide to become an artist?

J-Dubz CPT: I became an artist because of my parents. Growing up they exposed me to all kinds of music from all genres.

Since the age of 12 I started acting in school plays and singing in competitions. At age 14 i started writing my own songs and recording music.

In high school i found a love for hip hop music and started to work on both crafts simultaneously.

The best advice i ever got as an artist was to believe in your ability, stay consistent, work hard and remain true to your art form even when no one is listening, eventually they will.

J-Dubz CPT


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I play live shows all the time and every performance gets better. So far i have performed at events like "Sizzled Block Party", "Smoken Word" and opened for Bow Wow a few years back on his visit to South Africa.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I got all the angles like a protractar, so how could i not become a rap star?

J-Dubz CPT

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

I am currently working on my first EP which is due for release next year.

I recently released a single called "Aweh" which is a common slang term used in Cape Town to either confirm, agree or greet.

The music video can be found on Youtube by searching "J-Dubz – Aweh"

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

Yes i would sign a record deal, however i would not like my deal to be a dictatorship.

I'd like my own creative freedom in other words and sometimes labels want you to talk about certain topics.

Any last words?

Cape Town City!!! The greatest place on Earth in my opinion. You will agree once you experience the vibe and the culture that we have.

The Alliance, my crew and family.

Peripheral Beatz.

ZFG media.

SC’s own Donn Jonz

Featured artist: Donn Jonz – SC's own Donn Jonz

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Donn Jonz.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Donn Jonz: When I was younger seeing my older cousins an their friends putting together music an doing things with their group. I was automatically hooked.

You got to have something that separates you from everyone else. You can't say it's your music bc anyone can say that. It has to be something that attracts the people to YOU automatically without hearing one piece of your creation

Donn Jonz


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes, I do. I'm cautious about shows simply bc the indie / unsigned scene flooded so a show could be 30 rappers and me that 1 artist..

Best punchline you ever wrote?

"Take 7 rap niggas put em all in a line. An take 7 trap niggas who think they can rhyme and it'll take 7 more before I go for mine. I caught 21 all at the sametime"

Donn Jonz

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

Love Jones Vol.3 was my most recent full body of work release. My latest single was released July 7th which happen to be the first single for my up and coming mixtape "Babylon" (Blue Light District Vol.2)

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

Yes depending on the paperwork an the actual situation. Pros are the major push what they call the MACHINE. The label backing speaks volumes in the right scenario. Great A&Rs who know talent and how to pick great material. A team to help with all your needs. Cons are the shitty deals, the fact you might not own your publishing. The major labels have hella artist you might become just another number. If you don't sale they might shelf you because they feel like your cold. Many cons but those are the main things.

Any last words?

Aiken ,South Carolina.. Norfside raised, South Carolina as a whole entire state. NHNG my indie imprint label/brand. Kirk Rich management, Dj Campaign, Dj G.O., Dj Montana 864, Dj D Souff, B Mo, My ol lady and my daughter. My right hand Father Kai & Suge Knight jr.

Idaho Rapper Making Moves

Featured artist: DK – Idaho Rapper Making Moves

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

DK: I've always known that I wanted to be a rapper. Since I was 10 years old I have been inspired by Tech N9ne and Strange Music. My mother past away when I was 11 years old, very traumatic for a little boy who's father has been paralyzed since before I was born. I am my fathers caretaker and he is my rock. He supports my choices when it comes to music, I promised myself that I will never stop doing this. I have to make something of myself so when I get to heaven I can tell momma I made it.

"Just do you and the reward will be greater." -Tech N9ne

DK


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes, I have performed live for many people. Live sound is one of my favorite things to do. Gets my blood pumping, the crowed screaming and dancing ugh! I am getting excited just thinking about it.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Best believe that I'll hold it down for my soldiers. We warriors, victorious, United States and we glorious.

DK

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

I am currently working on my new 6 song EP "Schizo" which will feature the names such as Skatterman and Wrekonize from Strange Music. ( other names to be announced ) Also I released my 3rd album "Narcissistic" last month on the 9th. It has been getting a lot of attention and feedback. I am very thankful for all of my fans.

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

No, I believe being independent is the way to go. When it comes to "major labels" the only one that I want to be with is Strange Music. That is my goal, my life dream, everything I have worked for is Strange Music. The industry is a joke and the world needs to know that.

Any last words?

I would like to thank my best friend/Engineer Tyler Barker for being a straight up ninja on pro tools, and for making all of my music sound amazing. I would also like to thank my Father for believing in me. It's not very common for a white boy from Idaho to be at the level I am now.

Who is iGAMEBOi?

Featured artist: iGAMEBOi – Who is iGAMEBOi?

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

iGAMEBOi: Well my aunts were in high school and all they played at the time was T.I & Lil Wayne. Let me say first this was the early 2000's down south & I was in elementary school but back to why I decided to become an artist.Well my oldest aunt was into music. She rapped and she was dope! She did a couple songs & shows locally & out of town as well. I mean she was dope! Also my father was a local DJ/producer in our city. He is the main reason why I enjoy hip-hop so much and the biggest influence in why I want to become an artist. My cousin's Tevin(TK) & Chris(S.O.S.) also known as TK Kravits former member of the Group TK N Cash & S.O.S. producer of Exotic Music. My older cousin Big Curt a well known producer mainly for his production for Pastor Troy. My great great grandmother are cousins with Diana Ross? So to say? Lol but we don't know yet. So basically this is all why. I love the music & history behind everything that has ever been made in hip-hop because with old school there is no hip-hop, well that's what I think.

Be you?! Don't ever let someone tell you how to be you! You are the only who knows you better than you!

iGAMEBOi


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yeah I do. Actually I have been doing a couple of shows locally and out of state in a quite few areas in the south parts of Ga, Sc & NC.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I'm more even with nigga steven. With a bad gem in the universe watching even steven.

iGAMEBOi

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

Right now I just released my new project entitled Video Game Special. Right now that's what I'm really focused as far as projects, but future projects wise? I already go those in-store already done & still currently working but not on a specific project just but everything. My grandmother always tell me perfect your craft first.

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

No Only Distribution! I want control of my own do's & don't. Ya feel me? I mean we grow up to leave our parents now its basically the same thing over just only in suits and tie. So nah i'm good yo.

Any last words?

I wan't to give shout outs to the young and gifted. My family. J-Flame , Banks my young homie Lil Unknown. Every single artist & go getter out there that's on the way!

Who is MNSSH? This is about to get interesting…

Featured artist: MNSSH – Who is MNSSH? This is about to get interesting…

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

MNSSH: I was inspired by the artists EMINEM and 50 Cent back in school when I was 13. Music speaks for me, especially when it comes to emotions. I can express my inner fears and desires best through music. Back then I had a lot of psychological issues due to being exiled in school by my classmates and with that having trouble at home in addition. Music was my way to escape the harsch reality and find the motivation to move on when I felt lost.

Be yourself! It took me years to actually understand what that means. I started off with gangsta rap and all that but fact is I was never raised in that type of Ghetto circumstances. So I was basically copying what other artists saying instead of being real and creative and speak about my life and thoughts. It took me years of transformation and development before I finally began to understand the true meaning of those two words.

MNSSH


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do, currently in phases throughout the year. Sometimes I am booked simply to host a club event in Germany as an MC but mostly I add a short Live performance with it to introduce my latest work. The people love it. It's incredible how well my music has developed and how it reaches the masses.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Back when i started, nobody cared by now I am regarded, you making money that's cool for you bro I'm not hating but truth is it stink cause I farted.

MNSSH

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

Lately I have released two singles through my digital label Soul Kingz Records with two of my homies, of which both charted in Europe with the single "Like the Fugees" even making it to #5 on the German MTV Urban Charts. So following up on that, I am currently working on new singles which will be released over ne next 6 months.

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

It really depends on the deal to be honest. I mean the Major label is a big move but you have to make sure the deal is good for you. Don't just jump into it because it's a major label. Things can easily turn on you. But I believe the best option to go for that benefits both sides is partnering with a major. Not being directly signed gives you the freedom to decide what to release and to some extent when. The Major label still can grow your career and profit from it as you do along the way.

Any last words?

Berlin to Hamburg baby, that's what it is! Salute to my homies at Soul Kingz Records, DJ Seip and Devonte. Big shout to my brother Shoko for the daily inspiration and growth support and mad love to everyone on Blackbeats.FM Radio representing my work throughout Germany to the fullest! May seem forgotten but I gotta show love to my Hustling Spirit family in NJ posted up designing new gear and supporting the movement!

Interview with upcoming Adelaide rapper, Akeim Takamura

Featured artist: Akeim Takamura – Interview with upcoming Adelaide rapper, Akeim Takamura

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Akeim Takamura.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Akeim Takamura: It all started when I was 11 years old, I got given this CD with an Eminem song on the 13th Track, it was the song Mocking Bird. I loved the storytelling style and flow that was used. Since that day I started listing to a lot of hiphop/rap, but it wasn't until I was 14 when I started writing my own stuff. It was all for fun at first, but when I turned 15 I created my own YouTube (Akeim Takamura) and decided to recored myself rapping. After one video so many people enjoyed it and said I should do a second one, so I did. I started writing more but none of my raps really made any sense, I didn't have a purpose in writing. It wasn't until I was 16 when I started writing my emotions, my feelings and things going on around me. Rap turned from rhyming words to my stress release, It became apart of me. Now I am 17 and I'm using my words to keep me moving in life and to give others a message.

Every hate that you get, picture it as a step to a ladder, each time you get it, step on it and make yourself climb higher to the top

Akeim Takamura


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I haven't yet performed live, the closest thing to a crowed I've had ever had would be when I walked in the middle of the city rapping my song (Time By Time) for a music video, which was filmed with a friends iPhone. But I'm willing to play live with every opportunity I get.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Where you at, I'll shoot ya. Right in the back, with a gun? no stupid. No bullets, I ain't no Cupid. Creating love, chemistry from students

Akeim Takamura

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

I am always working on new material, but I'm currently working on a track that I wanna do my second music video for. As of if I've release something in the pass I've got a whole collection of songs and even music video on my YouTube channel (Akeim Takamura)

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

I'll love to sign with a major label because i'll be with people have been in the game for years and they are experience, but if they wanna change my style, I'll stay independent.

Any last words?

I'll like to give a shoutout to AJAKS and Adelaide City, we're small but we can achieve big!

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

ZFame: Back in 2013, I had just got back into writing poems here and there. My friend at the time was a rapper/singer. He read one of my poems I had laying in the car and he said I should start rapping.

The best advice I've ever been given was to make my own beats and read books out loud to help with pronunciation when rapping.

Ike Dirty out of Dayton Ohio

Featured artist: Ike Dirty – Ike Dirty out of Dayton Ohio

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Ike Dirty.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Ike Dirty: I started rapping when I was 7 with my neighbor Dion. We would just record ourselves free styling on his karaoke machine. Once Dion told me I was sweet with the flow I just started rapping everywhere and it would shock people because I stutter. Once I got enough feedback I just ran with it I knew that was my god given gift.

The best advice I received as an artist came from the Ying Yang Twins in Cleveland Ohio when I opened up for them. They told me to always stay true to myself and the music.

Ike Dirty


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do give concerts. I haven't had any of my own but that's all in motion as we speak. The shows I have done have all ended in pandemonium. When I opened for the Ying Yang twins they didn't want me yo get off stage it's was crazy.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Get back get back dats essential i stretch da pack to its potential i need mucho mota if i hit my migo he gone tell me give him un momento

Ike Dirty

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

Currently I am working on a project I released a visual 2 months back when I went by 3rdShyft to Lil herbs Just Bars so when you go to YouTube just type in 3rdShyft Just Bars and it should be the first thing that pops up

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

Yes for the right number and amount of artistic freedom. The pros to being signed is exposure and promo because the label is going to do their best to promote their investment of course but the consequences as we all know can be the restrictions they put on the artist and I range between genres too much to be confined to one lane

Any last words?

Gotta shout out my team MydNyte Muzik (MNM) Dayton Ohio and my team in Chattanooga Tennessee Less Talk More Action (LTMA) wanna shout out Destry Perry my brother for the promo and Yello Pain for the videos. Shouts out to anybody that supports me and my music. Can't forget my city Dayton Ohio Gem City stand up

One Of North Carolina’s up and comers

Featured artist: Bonez Tha Truth – One Of North Carolina's up and comers

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Bonez Tha Truth.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Bonez Tha Truth: Listening to music overtime inspired me to take my own stab at it. Started off making beats off FL Studio which later led to me picking up the mic instead. Been rapping ever since

If you love what you do, never give up and always remember people who dont know you will support you the hardest.

Bonez Tha Truth


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Gotta give fans what they want right? haha Im always down to give a live concert

Best punchline you ever wrote?

"you act tuff but any threat you pose is minimal/ murder any rapper with no trace, ima smooth criminal/ and im Michael Jackson bad, with this Shaft blowing yo girl back out/ a PYT name Billie Jean who can vouche ima bad motha-shut yo mouth/"

Bonez Tha Truth

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

Currently im working on a mixtape entitled "King's Speech" which ill probably put out next year. I do have two prior releases called "Lost In My Thoughts" and "No Introductions Needed 2" which i dropped this year.

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

Depnding on the major label I feel like I might. Sometimes I feel a distribution may be better though. I say that because the industry now is a popularity contest, so if your popularity kinda fades you run the risk of gettin dropped which could possibly put you back to where you were before the deal, ya know?

Any last words?

Most definitely, gotta shout out all my people in the 252. Whether they're fans, friends, and/family members

Relentless Hustler, Black Hefner

Featured artist: Slim Goody – Relentless Hustler, Black Hefner

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Slim Goody.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Slim Goody: The decision came when I was about four or five, but I didn't quite know yet. You know how we all want to be a firefighter or a wrestler something like that. Of course all of that was up for grabs as well. But watching my father play instruments as well as hundreds of Records nightly, really inspired and kept alive the piano spirit in me. The rap hip-hop side of me I would say comes from a brother born in the 70s playing all the hottest eighties and nineties rap… from Jay-Z, Nas, biggie, Tupac, and one of my favorites, twista, and even a little big L. when I wasn't listening to Frankie Beverly and Maze ,Luther Vandross, Prince, Michael Jackson, Anita Baker and nate king cole before his late daughter natalie. How did I decide? I don't think I did, I feel like I was made.

"NEVER STOP LEARNING"

Slim Goody


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes I do play live. I haven't played any concerts live just with a band accompanied. I do have several videos that you can find on my Facebook page. Where I go live playing live piano over the tracks that I'm creating.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Yes, a dutch punchline please. I got a 40 cal and a Glock to squeeze. Is it bad to say that i can guarantee that they'll spread like a transmitted disease.

Slim Goody

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

I am currently working on 3rd projectb"Dark Horse". After releasing "Necessary Roughness", i teamed up with my production partner Ryan B. and we're now wrapping up "Rebels & Vouchers". He just dropped "Raw" on Spinrilla last month, and im all over that project as well. Relentless Hustler and Black Hefner clothing and media services. ( http://www.blackhefner.com) My brother in law is the founder of that situation, but im the face of Black Hefner and Artist courtesy of Relentless Hustler. Brand new Facility should be complete by November.

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

I would happily take a distribution deal, because im expected to do the things I already want to do. Contrary to plenty peoples beliefs, major labels do sign many artists, but you don't hear much and most get dropped by the label. So to answer the question, it depends on the deal. No 360 or production, a major deal would insinuate i was ready for a global takeover (Flattering). A distribution would be perfect for MY situation.

Any last words?

I want to shout out Steve Relentless Hustle ENT. I want to give a shout out to my production team the Dumdkids. Shout out to all the black Hefner models in every city, you are appreciated. I want to shout out everybody that ever purchased anything from the black hefner website and anybody that requested. Everybody that rock with me, support me in whatever way they can, and can dig my live Sound. And appreciate my art, thank you….. What up Chi-City!

Welcome to the dark side…

Featured artist: Ace DeNiro – Welcome to the dark side…

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Ace DeNiro.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Ace DeNiro: I was always freestyling and people would say I was good at it and that I should rap but I never took it into serious consideration. Around 2013 I was in jail with a local big name rapper, he heard me freestyling one morning and I guess was somewhat impressed because he invited me to record with him upon our release, that was basically the beginning for me

The best advice I've been given so far as an artist is never let someone tell you how to create your own art. Not everyone is going to like what you create or understand it so you can't let it discourage you or hinder your creative ability. To always be true to ones self and never be afraid or apologetic about it.

Ace DeNiro


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes I have performed live once. The crowd was very receptive, it definitely went better than I had expected. Once you realize people paid to watch you perform brings a sense of admiration, like jay z said "you could have been anywhere else in the world right now, but you're here with me, and I appreciate that"

Best punchline you ever wrote?

"In the game of life it doesn't matter whose the hardest, survival of the fittest victorious is the smartest, knowledge equals power but anger will leave you starving the hate will manifest now you're right back where you started"

Ace DeNiro

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

I'm currently working on a few projects, I had planned to drop my first mixtape " the dark side" in April but I was recording so much music so fast I decided I wanted to take a bombardment approach and drop them all simultaneously instead of the norm. I have a few singles and visuals I released previously but those Arendt teasers from my upcoming projects

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

Honestly not unless it's roc nation or g.o.o.d. music. I feel those labels were created by artists so you have more freedom to create and be yourself. From what I've been told by numerous people already industry tested is that it's best to stay independent because most labels give out horrible deals and keep artists from receiving money they are deserved and that they shelf you then reap off your catalog and profit off it

Any last words?

I wanna give a shout out first to my family, my son and my wife for keeping me focused and being the motivation and giving me the determination to even play this game, I wanna give a shout out to all my homies back home Miguel, frost, Castro, Johnny boy, I wanna shout out my Florida homies lump sum, 40 Luciano, Carter Grady, tony the pretty boy, Izzy, the homie white chocolate, ace boogie, IDMG camp, and the we all we got ENT camp. I was raised in Florida,but Brooklyn will always be home. But I'm repping for every hood everywhere because no matter where you go every hood is the same. This is for the voice-less and the have nots.

New Artist, New Sound

Featured artist: Alnzo – New Artist, New Sound

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

Alnzo: I started of as a student learning recording engineering and music production at Full Sail University, but realized being in the background wasn't for me since I can play music and sing.

You develop your sound through your limitations, so make the best of what your given.

Alnzo


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I've played live as a backing musician, but not as a solo artist….yet.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Where is it

Alnzo

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

After '5 Days' that I just released, I still have more naterial I haven't released. I'm just waiting on the right time to release it. I previously released a project called Medivibe which I was able to get some distribution for through CD baby. Before that I released three different projects on soundcloud. All of this was released in the past 6 months.

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

I would as long as I could negotiate owning my masters, keeping 100% creative control, and own all or majority of my royalties while sharing at the most 50% of my net profit. The pros of a major deal is more of a finnancial backing and bigger promotion, as well as touring help. The cons on the otherhand is if you are unaware of what you should be entitled to own then you may end up with a deal that may not work in your favor. If you have a sound and you know where you want to go with your music then you may get more freedom, but if you just want to be famous then you may not. At the end of the day, if you were running a business you would want to run a successful business at that.

Any last words?

Shoutout to 808, 941 and Shoutout to boys Jamar, Chardo, Adrian, and Jelani (Mr. Camera man) aka. Deputy Daniels

T.J. Cross: I started creating art at the age of 6. My step brother Quincy Walker Jr. Also known as YPDG taught how to write verses and we made songs together. After that I got into hip hop dance, fashion,etc.

The best I have been giving as an artist is that we exist on a level far beyond our bodies.

Daniel Sun

Featured artist: J. Capital – Daniel Sun

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist J. Capital.

How did you decide to become an artist?

J. Capital: Well, i grew up on Hiphop so it seems almost like fate to be apart of the culture but, i decided to become an artist after many years of just following friends watching them go through the ups and downs of the game and being in the background working on my skills but more of strong support system for my friends who more polished at that time. Over time i got better and when i had the same people from my own circle who looked up to now pushing me and saying "you got it" i finally after some hesitation gave it a shot and now here i am.

It was from my OG rhyme partna Kev who told me to "Break out of my shell and do you"

J. Capital

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

Currently, I am working on my 3rd solo project entitled "Daniel Sun" about 3months ago i released "Capital Punishment".

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

I would after a certain point career wise but by then i would have really expanded independently. Pros is the exposure and the upfront marketing money. Cons no artist development and most artist because of the contracts end up in debt. The lack of talent from XXL freshmans this speaks to a very big con with going with a major. Thats the type of yall looking for? Im good!.

Any last words?

Shoutout the city Vegas and all the people who support as well as my family

Jack of all trades

Featured artist: Anna Clasen – Jack of all trades

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Anna Clasen.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Anna Clasen: I grew up in a very creative family, and I began playing piano and guitar when I was a small child. I've always had a love for every genre, and so I like to create a lot of different sounding music. Poetry is something that really helps me to express things as well, and when I write I experience a release that can't be obtained from anywhere else.

No matter what you do, do it because you want to. Otherwise you begin to lose your individuality in the sea of pleasing others.

Anna Clasen


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I live in a small town, but I've played in bars and at a local music fest. I hope to one day travel around the states performing for others and sharing my art with the world.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I'm just weird. But I embrace it.

Anna Clasen

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

I'm currently just getting used to recording my own stuff at home. Practicing. Learning. Eventually I plan to release many albums and music videos.

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

I would love to but I also don't want to get castrated in an artistic sense

Any last words?

Derek Hennessy, for helping me open up to new genres and assisting me in finding the confidence to rap. Also to my dad for supporting me and my dreams.
