Carter Wilson – Captaincy

Back when I interviewed Moia Bri I came across a couple of joints on which she was featured on, Bl∞m (w. Moia Bri) and How To Fall (w. Moia Bri) by Carter Wilson aka Captaincy – a Seattle based rapper, originally from Oakland, CA. Loved the tracks and made a mental note to return to his Soundcloud page to check out some more of his music. When I returned to his page a couple of months later I came across even more music that really caught ...

Black Boy Tye

It is my pleasure to introduce you all to Black Boy Tye – a young and up-and-coming rapper from Griffin, Georgia. I initially took notice in Tye when we connected on the gram: @cultrvultr, and I immediately asked him to send some of his bars (which you can listen to on his SoundCloud page, link provided at the end of this post). I was impressed and needless to say we arranged an interview. It was a lot of fun getting ...

BK-One (of Rhymesayers)

So thrilled to have BK-One of Rhymesayers [[Brother Ali’s former DJ + Producer of more than a decade]] on the blog this week. I really don’t think BK needs much of an intro, especially if you’re a loyal Rhymesayers fan. However, if you are unfamiliar with BK, you can look him up on Rhymesayers website and his Facebook music page to learn a little more about him and his work by following all the links in this entry. So without ...

Shaun Harris

  Shaun Harris is a local hip-hop rapper from Tucson Arizona. His recent single “Bio” off his debut album Shock G Calls Me Chris has caught attention of many hip-hop followers, including artists like Atmosphere of Rhymesayers Entertainment. Of course when I too stumbled upon his recent release “Bio”, I had to hit him up for some Q&A about his lyrical artist try and the man himself. Check out his video: Shaun Harris x Bell Biv Cousteau – Bio Download ...

21 Savage Why You Trapping So Hard

Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, otherwise known by his alias 21 Savage stepped onto the hip-hop scene in 2014 by dropping a couple of mixtapes, The Slaughter Tape and Slaughter King.

Charlemagne went as ...

Pat Messy

So great to have you on the blog Pat, please introduce yourself before we jump to the interview. [PM] Thanks for having me Maria! Yeaaah! My name is Pat Messy, I am an emcee, producer, sound engineer, and overall sound junkie. [V] You’ve mentioned that it took you quite a bit of time to complete The Elevation LP. Is there a particular reason why it took you so long to complete this album? [PM] Well, I’ve been making music a ...

Cookin’ Soul – Better Than the Original

If you haven’t heard of Cookin’ Soul by now, I don’t know what rock you’ve been living under but I have yet to come across a single one of their mixtapes that I did not like. In fact, I even find myself listening to some of their remixes with artists that I usually wouldn’t pay much attention to. Not going to drop any names, but let’s just say, these two Grammy award winning producers and djs, Big Size and Zock, from Valencia, Spain definitely know ...
