Afghan-American rapper SIP, one of the fastest growing artists in the New England Region just dropped his debut mixtape “JY23” (Jordan Year 23). Stream his new mixtape now courtesy of SIPofReality.com. He held his release event on Sunday night to a large crowd at New Hampshire’s hottest club, Whiskey’s 20.
For those who aren’t familiar, Sifathullah Woodod “SIP” is an young and talented hip hop/rap recording artist looking to make his mark on the world. Born on June 5th, 1994 in Flushing Queens, Sip was raised in an Afghan-American household. As conservative and cultured his Afghan-influenced environment may have been, his family, friends and fellow community members were always supportive of his capabilities. Growing up, he strives to work hard in everything he set his mind to.
Sip continually strives to spread love and acceptance throughout all of his lyrics. It’s this same love that brought him through his ups and downs in his life, the same love he has persistently fought for throughout his changing environments. Sip has continued to drop high-quality music with top-notch production to attract a mainstream crowd, all while fostering the same message culture is not necessarily black nor white. Music is unity; music is the culture that brings everyone together.
In addition to music, Sip also manages several businesses for his family. A fast-food restaurant, a a studio production business, and formerly a hookah lounge. A firm believer in hard-work, he plans on going into the industry independently.
Sip has always had a love for music. He’s been recording since he was 16, but didn’t get serious till December of 2014, when he asked for his family’s support to try and make his dreams become a reality. Several weeks later, he dropped his very first video, “Flex”. Not only does he want to create music, but he wants to make a statement. His team and supporters are called the “Culture Movement”, and SIP and company have created a fresh clothing line that is gaining strong traction in his region.
Watch SIP’s eye-popping video “Higher” which was shot at the world famous Ice Castles in Lincoln, NH:

For South Central based rapper Bale, every day is a blessing. You wouldn’t know it if you saw him, but less than a year ago Bale spent 29 days in the hospital after suffering 28 shots from head to toe on his birthday. Not only did that almost cost him his life, but that ended his chance of pursuing a scholarship in football at a D-1 school where he was enrolled.
Bale is lucky to be alive and he’s unquestionably a survivor with an unmatched will to live. But luck doesn’t just happen – you have to make luck happen. You have have right frame of mind to get through the hard times when you were at the wrong place at the wrong time and life dealt you a bad hand. Bale has a playbook for that triumphant road to recovery and he gives it to you in the rawest form on his project H.T.S.M (Hard. Times. Shaped. Me.)
“I’m from South Central, I grew up on Normandie, the oldest out five kids so naturally I feel like I’m a leader,” Bale explained. “I think Bale the rapper and Bale the person are the same. I try to be as transparent as possible in the music, so listeners know me as an artist and as a person. Great music always comes from a place of truth and to do anything well you have you know yourself. I find myself, finding myself through the music.”
Fans will be able to hear that struggle, passion and pain on his upcoming H.T.S.M. effort that in a sense documents Bale’s road to recovery both mentally and physically. Part of the process for Bale’s recovery involved linking with longtime West-Coast staple Krondon, a founding member of Hip-Hop super-group Strong Arm Steady and famed songwriter in Hip-Hop.
“I linked with Krondon like two months after I got out the hospital through the big homie B.Fin. To have a West Coast legend champion me is not only an honor but a blessing” Bale said. “If you ask me, I’d say he’s saving my life. He’s helping me get out a situation that almost tore my family apart and now helping me get in position to where I can change those circumstances.”
For now main focus is promoting his project H.T.S.M (Hard. Times. Shaped. Me.), which has given Bale an opportunity to harness his new perspective on life. Leading up to the release Bale will be dropping several tracks and videos from project that prep listeners for a well-rounded and truthful album.
“I feel like hard times shape us all – we’ve all been through something in life. When you come out the situation it makes you a better person,” Bale said of his upcoming project set for release on August 2nd, the same day he was shot.
“Music is like therapy and I get shit off my chest. It’s food for the soul and it’s helped me stay on track. You know the mental and emotional effects you go through after being shot? The shit you think about man? I’m glad to have music in my life, I thank God everyday for it and I don’t take if for grated because it was almost taken away from me.”

The 7th annual Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival will kick off at Roy Wilkins Park on July 23rd. This year we are expecting a large turnout of 20,000 people for New York’s Biggest Caribbean food festival. Headliners such as Morgan Heritage, Allison Hinds, Konshens and Barrington Levy are all set to take the stage giving us a taste of the classic hits we know and love.
Known as the ‘The female Vybz Kartel’ HoodCelebrityy will be the opening act, prepping the crowd for the main stage acts. Hood was featured on Cardi B’s ‘Back It Up’ with Konshens, as well as dropping her own hits such as ‘Island Girl’ and ‘Sit Down.’
Her mixtape ‘Rap vs. Dancehall’ is a plethora of straight vibes and heat. This tape is very reminiscent of Vybz ‘Pon di Gaza’ especially with the rhythms and the cutthroat lyrics that make you wanna bruk ya waist, but at the same time turn up. Catch Hood shutting down the stage at the Jerk Festival.
