Since starting his west coast career as a superstar MC, The Game has become a TV personality, starring in the hit series, Married to The Game on VH1.  Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf will be his sixth studio album.

With the highest score for a debut artist in Live Mixtapes history you’d think young BBE upstart Kolley hailed from a rap mecca like Atlanta instead of a blip on the map like Bassfield, MS. Of course the production roster “Real N*gga Shit” boasted and a feature from KRIT never hurt anyone but Kolley definitely struck a nerve. 

Fader dubbed him ‘the small-town rapper with a big voice’ and he’s only getting started. After a 2 month respite during which his team underwent a little housecleaning, Kolley unleashes the visual to the title track from his debut project; one of the last items produced under the previous regime. Welcome to Bassfield; population 235.

Already a rising star in Australia, Adelaide-by-way-of-Zimbabwe Tkay Maidza’s debut video for “U-Huh” shows an incredibly fierce and fearless young woman, her lightning-fast flow and clever wordplay sparks with an insatiable hook that urges you to dance. Made by the legendary Josh Logue from Mathematics.

From teaming up with Swick and Lewis Cancut for the clubby bass-rattler “Arm Up” to touring across Australia with Nina Las Vegas with Wave Racer, Cosmo’s Midnight, Emoh Instead, and her producer Elk on “U-Huh”, Tkay Maidza has already been hailed as the hyper new face of hip-hop.

“another undeniable combination of bass-heavy beats, playful chants and rhymes.”

About Tkay:

 Tkay has been gaining success since she released her first singles “Bronotsaurus” and “Handle My Ego” with major radio love from its most influential station Triple J. She was one of the most talked about artists at Splendour in the Grass, called out by the Sydney Morning Herald as one of their not to miss acts and drawing a massive crowd for her early set. Concrete Playground caught her set “Filling out the Mix Up tent with the very first Friday slot is no mean feat, but Adelaide’s 17 year old Tkay Maidza managed to get a colossal roundup of early-rising brontosaurus feet stomping.”


Lil Boosie's brother the good life from his brother's money?

Lil Boosie‘s brother TQ…living the good life from his brother’s money?

Trust is a concept that is significant in all aspects of most people’s lives. From time to time we may find that in the music industry, more notably, in the hip-hop community, trust becomes a foreign language. Then there are times when a lack of trust becomes sad and down right criminal.

This is a true story which on many fronts will be an embarrassment to those of us who love, value and support the brand of hip-hop and the artists which provide its lifeline. To periodically be given ten dollars and then, routinely, take the eleventh without permission; that is theft. You are, by behavior and definition, a thief. We are sad to report that our investigation has lead us onto the trail of one of our beloved rap sons being blindly robbed by none other than his very own brother. This is the story of “The Theft of the Wealth of Torrence “Lil Boosie” Hatch.”

Phenom Wess

Phenom “Picture Perfect”

Phenom Wess has a long love affair with hip hop dating back to the age of 8 where he performed in a hip hop talent show at the Jackie Robinson YMCA in San Diego.

Facing the reality of economic difficulties to finance a music career and realizing his grades weren’t good enough to get him into any of the colleges he desired, he enlisted in the United States Navy at the age of 17.  Phenom is still currently serving his country in the Navy and is a veteran of multiple deployments yet his love for music has been cathartic for him, and he records from his soul.

Phenom just released his debut single “Picture Perfect” which is an insightful and rich story of a young man celebrating the lyrical dynamics of the hip hop of old.  Deep lyrical presentation and vivid descriptions of how he has come to take his rightful place at the head of the hip hop table set this artist apart from the standard fare we hear on the radio now.

Ensconced in a music bed that takes your mind on a trip without any chemical assistance, Phenom’s lyrical stylings can send those who remember original hip hop, on a ride that will simply take you there.

Life experience, dedication to duty and self sacrifice have given Phenom a lyrical edge worthy of giving him the title emcee, not just a rapper…he’s “Picture Perfect.”  Enjoy!
