bangaThere is no pain like losing a loved one right in front of your face. It’s even worse when that loved one died having your back or because of stray bullets. In “Wrong Nigga,” Banga tells the story of his loss, his soulmate aka “Betty Butt” one of the Twerk Team founders, was gunned down in front of him…this joint is by a man who’s heart was ripped out and tossed in the trash.

On The Last 3, available on iTunes, in which rapper Sinister teams with Shocka and Black-Rhino, tracks like Star and I Got Problem show HMS’s lyrical abilities. Just Chill is another great track that highlights the team’s rapid-fire delivery and wordplay. Spend Dat brings a real Haitian flavor to their rap and is one of my favorite tracks.

Watching the video of their big hit Problem, you can see the teamwork and trust that goes into their music productions. It’s a dynamic track and its chorus “Play Through the Pain” is my new anthem.

ApolloNightLA crew

ApolloNightLA crew

Searching platforms across the globe looking for the REAL tastemakers, I discovered a weekly web-cast show ApolloNightLA whose crew is funny and entertaining with a true desire to make a difference for indie/unsigned artists. In-studio celebrity guests have included Howard HewettKym Whitley, Luenell, Bishop Don “Magic” Juan and more. The weekly show streams live every Monday at 7pm PST/9pm CST/ 10pm EST.

Like any other showcase or television show, artists submit their material, either song, video or instrumental production to the show and via a selection process, make the actual airing. Once the slate is set for the show, the project is played and the cast as well as callers vote on whether to “Applaud” or “Shoot” the song.

What’s different about this particular show? The cast members of the show hear the songs for the first time DURING the taping, just like their audience members. This brings added value because we get to SEE the cast reactions to the song, and trust me, they don’t hold their tongues with their critique! It’s fun and entertaining and one of my favorite nights of the week!

Find out more information about ApolloNightLA via their official website and check out the show playlist below…let us know what you think!
