Pinqy Ring New Music

Pinqy Ring ‘HerStory’

Pinqy Ring took a long hiatus from music in order to graduate college and give back to her community by teaching. At a new juncture in her life, she has decided to put the teacher hat down and place the rapper fitted back on her crown. Herstory is Ms. Ring’s sophmore project, a 9 track EP that shows her versatility and passion. With production from Serious Beats, Slot-A, Force One Seven, Gabriel, and even Japan production from Kut, mixed by Papi Beatz at LPeezy Studios, features from Bo Deal, DJ NonStop, Gabriel and Justin Ghofrani, and even co-writing from B96 Morning Show Producer Gabriel Ramírez, Herstory is her story and the story of all women, as well as the story of men who support female narratives. The music speaks for itself, and Pinqy Ring’s story is Spanglish, rhyme-riddled, beat-riding, lyrical and dope. Herstory will definitely be the EP for a summertime in the Chi, a summertime anywhere, and we look forward to her return to rap.

ALBUM REVIEW: R.O.M.E. BY PHILLY'S ICH (INNER CITY HUSTLERS) @jimmydasaint1 @thehypemagazine | The Hype Magazine 24/7 News

ICH Gang under the leadership of Jimmy DaSaint, continues to expand on the legacy of the “Sound of Philly” which brought many many legendary artists who we won’t list for fear of annoying someone because we left out a particular name.  EVERYBODY in the world music and entertainment knows about Philly and its iconic musical greats as well as the contributions of that city to music history globally.  This group, ICH, is going to be another one of those rapidly associated with the musical legacy of Philadelphia…period!

ICH’s newest project dropping April 13th is entitled “R.O.M.E.” (Ride On My Enemies) and is a 15-track train ride of various stylings brought to life by this 8 member crew.  All songs were written and produced by ICH…yup they do it ALL!!!  We get to meet, via music, the personalities that make up this diverse group and they leave it all on the field for their fans and listeners…there is not even one “we gonna let that one slide” joint on the entire album.  While you may not love every song, you will have to respect the work ethic and drive for excellence exhibited on this offering from the group…everybody stepped to the plate and smashed!

John Tanner

John Tanner is one of those rare artists these days…he has lyrics and knows how to deliver them. Deadly delivery on the joint “Therapy” gives one a taste of just how serious Tanner is coming when he drops his project “Good Morning Mr. Tanner” this April.

“Therapy” produced by J Gramm (Kanye West, Rick Ross, Mike Posner, etc.) is embedded in one of those sinister tracks that plays well with his challenging lyrics for this joint. Sounding like a full fledged challenge to the “wannabe men” of the world, Tanner lets it be known he’s about to lose his mind from the wackness we are seeing everyday in the name of manhood.

Anybody who knew John Tanner ten years ago would tell you that he was the most passionate kid they had ever met. Much like the legendary Ray Charles, thirteen-year-old John Tanner lived and breathed music. Instead of doing normal teenage stuff with his friends, John Tanner spent all his free time writing music.

John Tanner – Surprise, Surprise

“That’s all I ever wanted to do,” John Tanner reminisced. “My friends would wanna hang out or ask me to ball with them, and I’d always say, ‘Nah, I’m going to the studio.’ Music was my life.( laughs) , it still is.”
