#NewVideo @ThatsBlawesome Black Magic Woman

unnamed-1

Portland songstress Blossom brings all the vibes in her latest, self-directed, music video for “Black Magic Woman”, produced by Mikey Fountaine. Originally hailing from Trinidad, Blossom lets her island roots show on the slowed down, Reggae influenced track. “Black Magic Woman” is a message of female empowerment displayed through all shapes, sizes and nationalities of women handpicked by the rising R&B star herself.

Blossom and company come across confident, yet natural and refreshing through the lense of filmographer Tim Slew. Recently signing to Martell Webster’s EYRST label and becoming one of the most active performers in the NW, including a recent trip to NY with Amine for The Tonight Show, the demand for Blossom‘s debut album seems to grow by the day.

#News Slick Rick and Wendy Day How To Get A Record Deal

unnamed-1

Rap Coalition announces that legendary rapper Slick Rick is the voice of the audiobook edition of “How To Get A Record Deal”, Wendy Day’s sage guidebook for anyone passionate about cracking the hard-to-penetrate music business. The audiobook due for release on Thursday, December 14th is available at www.iwantarecorddeal.com and http://www.ricktheruler.net.

Day and Rick have been close friends for more than two decades. “When Rick entered the music industry in the late ‘80s there was no path, so he created one”, said Day. “He’s still standing strong, and has always been a supporter of my work. His career typifies what I write about in the book: standing out, overcoming setbacks, and becoming a world-class performer.”

Rick said, “I’m hard-pressed to express how honored I am to have completed this audiobook with my dear friend, Wendy. She’s one of the few people I’ve trusted in my career, always giving it to me straight, raw and honest, with a generous dose of compassion.”

Day’s focus in the book is educating rappers, singers, producers and musicians about how to build a career in the music business beyond signing a recording contract (or without the benefit of a label deal in the first place). Slick Rick’s trademark British accent delivers no-holds-barred facts and fundamentals Day collected through the years as an advocate for some of the biggest urban and pop stars. He conveys her cutting-edge counsel musicians and managers navigating a dodgy and volatile industry need to heed.

“My goal is to ensure that dreams of fame & fortune don’t end up becoming daunting nightmares”, said Day, who has shopped and negotiated deals for stars such as Eminem, Master P, Do Or Die, Twista, Boosie, Webbie, BG, Pimp C from UGK, C-Murder, Fiend, Trouble, David Banner and Young Buck; the music labels No Limit and Cash Money Records and producers Beats By The Pound.

@DatBoyChyco Ft Boosie BadAzz Make Em Mad

unnamed-2

Houston’s next up, Dat Boy, just dropped a new DJ Scream-hosted tape called “Too Talented To Be Bullshittin” on LiveMixtapes and the title alone should make you take notice. If that’s not enough though, todays offering from that project has Boosie BadAzz all up in it and the two combined are straight fire. Haters are a running theme in rap and the video for “Make Em Mad” runs with it; flaunting as it does, everything our intrepid heroes have that you don’t.

All them broads you can’t have, all that talent you don’t posses and all them watches, rings and chains will just make you sick. Even Johnny Dang makes an appearance but not so sick that you won’t want to keep bumping it. You know what they say, hate the player not the game. Dat Boy‘s project also features Z-Ro, Doughboy & Sauce Walka and fire boardwork from none other than Zaytoven.

#NewAudio @TaiyamoDenku Ft @VvsVerbal and @rustejuxx357 Into Dust (Prod By @dcypha)

taiyamo-denku-ft-vvs-verbal-rustee-juxx-into-dust-prod-by-dcypha

Back on August 8th of 2015, Hip Hop lost one of it’s most noted lyrical soldiers when news broke that Sean Price had passed away. To add to the sorrow, it seems as though the Hip Hop genre is losing it’s way from the path it ought to journey down. Thankfully, we have artists such as Milwaukee’s Taiyamo Denku who strive to preserve the very core of what the culture embodies. Today, the Midwest monster debuts “Into Dust”, featuring VVS Verbal and Ruste Juxx, two of P’s close friends and associates.

The song opens up with a clip from “John 3:16” that features esteemed actor, Denzel Washington. As the song then begins, listeners are treated to nothing but brolic bars of brute, a showing that would make P himself proud. Australian producer/DJ Dcypha delivers what could arguably be some of the most adrenaline filled cuts we’ve heard this year as he closes the song out with some Sean P samples from an upcoming Cypha Den Music single. If you love Hip Hop, this song’s for you. Listen to “Into Dust” below.

Taiyamo opened up for A.F.R.O. and R.A. The Rugged Man on December 10th while on their tour run in Milwaukee. Denku was once again asked on stage by R.A. himself to beatbox “Stanley Kubrick”. The Collab King was also brought up while he performed in Chicago this past Halloween. Check the video footage out below.
