Pinqy Ring represents for Chicago and Puerto Rico

Pinqy Ring “Tickets” ft. Bo Deal (BSM)

Pinqy Ring is one of the dopiest MCs I have heard in quite a long time … I would try to put my spin on her and her story but she is so damn unique that in my humble opinion, only SHE can lay it out for you! I will just say that she is one of the newest writers on The Hype Magazine editorial roster but with her lyrical skills, we may not have her for long. Her single “Tickets” with Bo Deal of Waka Flocka‘s Brick Squad Monopoly, is an exposé of those fake rappers claiming to be rich or ‘gangsta’ when it simply isn’t the truth.

Pinqy Ring is a high school teacher as well as a rapper…her students really get the best of both worlds from their teacher.  Besides getting the 3 r’s, she can relate to them from a street perspective and as an individual out on her professional grind as well.

I am me. An emcee. That releases her speech on a beat. No police or his chief can hold Misses Pinq to her knees. Woman, Queen. On her dream. On the scene. Welcome. Please, have a seat :)” Pinqy Ring quote from her website!

In one sentence, who are you?

I am Pinqy Ring, the Puerto Rican Chicago rapper, teacher, poet, journalist, student, feminist, lover, learner, college graduate and chocolate milk aficionado. (from her recent interview with The HYPE Magazine)

Hard hitting rhythms, deadly deliver and a natural ability to ride a track like a professional hobo rides a train, gives the listener one heck of a musical experience.  This is an example of how Hip Hop should be presented, not that skinny jeans wishy washy stuff we get fed on the radio.  Tickets, from her upcoming EPHerstory” is unique in this day in age and Pinqy Ring delivers like none you have heard in years.

 

A proud Puerto Rican, Pinqy is determined NOT to be pigeonholed as a Latin Rapper…she wants and by her delivery on Tickets…DESERVES to be taken as a serious representative of Hip Hop…period. Rating 4/5 because nobody’s perfect.  Enjoy!

Celebrity Model and DJ Nicole Chen with Paris Hilton

Nicole Chen

Singapore – Celebrity model and DJ Nicole Chen and her associated record label responded to allegations that she took credit for another DJs unauthorized remix. Italian DJ Allessandro Vinai has accused Chen of taking credit for his bootleg remix of Niki Minaj’s “Pound the Alarm” according to Asiaone.com’s “Showbiz” page. (Ang, asiaone.com 2012)

In a November 9, 2012 article by Benson Ang of Singapore based “The New Paper,” Allessandro Vinai admitted to stealing and creating a “bootleg” mix of the song “Pound the Alarm” by Cash Money Records artist Nicki Minaj. Vinai later accused Chen, a well known international DJ and remixer, of stealing his admittedly stolen mix.

Vinai brazenly uploaded a YouTube video showing him creating his stolen mix and then posted it on his Facebook page.

In a message to The New Paper, Chen responded, “There is absolutely no truth to the alleged accusations of me plagiarizing anybody’s work.” She continued “I am currently seeking legal advice and will reserve further comment till then.”

Chen is a former beauty queen and was crowned Miss Earth Singapore in 2007. Since that time, she has earned a reputation as a first-class DJ and has performed at festivals across asia. In October of 2012 during an event in Bangkok, Thailand, Chen was photographed with American Socialite Paris Hilton. Paris Hilton joined Chen in the DJ booth during the event. There are talks of Chen and Hilton teaming up for Hilton’s DJ world premier. The attack by Vinai has unfairly created shadows of a negative light on the international DJs character.
