Junior Boy – Wit Dat

Junior Boy stirs the soul with deeply introspective music

FORT MYERS, FL – There are only a handful of musicians through the years whose music goes beyond merely sounding good and actually touches the soul of an individual. Florida-based artist Junior Boy is on a journey to create that kind of music for the world.

It wasn’t always his life’s mission to create soul-stirring music, though. In fact, though music has always been something he’s connected with deeply over the years, it was never something he considered doing on his own until the death of his father in 2008. He was 13 at the time, and his father – who was a self-made millionaire – was murdered. As a young teenager who was already shy and who didn’t know how to deal with the turmoil of his emotions, he found himself often locked in his room listening to music. It didn’t take long for the music to touch his soul and pull out words that he didn’t even know he had within him. He started writing, and soon discovered that music offered an outlet for him to speak to people and to tell his story. And when he shared that music with others, he was pleasantly surprised to discover that it inspired them, as well.

“That’s when I took on the name Junior Boy,” he said. “My dad was a Junior, but I’m not. I took on his name so that he lives forever through me. I’ve had a hard life, but I’m not looking to be any type of tough guy or have a tough image. My goal is to speak for the souls who need to hear it. My goal is to inspire and uplift through the message of my pain and my story. I feel like I can be relatable to so many others that when you listen to my music you can’t help but feel it. My ultimate goal is to inspire somebody and touch somebody’s soul. When people play my music I want them to get chills through their whole body.”

Those chills are coming in spades with the release of Junior Boy’s new single, “Wit Dat.” It’s a song that details the ins-and-outs of his daily life, giving fans an in-depth look at the real-life story from his past two years. He said it’s a song that not only directs positive energy toward all the hatred around him and the people who want to see his downfall, but also showcases the positive steps he’s taken to come up and make it out of a tough situation. Ultimately it’s a song that he said speaks for multitudes of people all around the world.

“I’m being the voice for the millions of people who can’t speak up,” he said. “I feel like I’m different from what’s going on in the music industry today because I’m giving you quality music and quality content. A lot of artists today aren’t giving you anything, they’re just making it catchy to make it viral and there’s no substance to the music. That’s why I really respect artists who touch your soul. Take Adele, for instance. When I hear Adel – who is in a whole different genre from what I do – she’s telling you about her life and her relationships. And when you really listen to what she’s saying, it’s heart-felt. That’s what I’m doing, only in my genre, which is hip-hop and rap.”

Junior Boy said he plans to continue releasing singles over the next year so as to build a fanbase before putting together a full album. A music video for “Wit Dat” is currently available on his YouTube channel.

Lil Poots – Trap Chronicles

Self-made man Lil Poots uses stories of survival to connect with fans

SAVANNAH, GA – A lot of people from Lil Poots neck of the woods grow up wanting to rap. The Southern Georgia native has grown up, like many other aspiring rappers, in the midst of the struggle. And like many other aspiring rappers, his point of view is one that explores a life of survival.

But to think of Lil Poots like every other aspiring rapper would be a mistake. His delivery, his sound and his style are all ingredients that make him stand out from the crowd. And his stories from the struggle aren’t what one would normally think of – he’s rapping about the truth and weaving in tales of relationships and love along the way.

“I just write about how I feel at the time or what I’m going through at the time,” Lil Poots said of the things that inspire him to create new music. “I just go in the studio and just freestyle until I find what I want. Most of my music is about a life of survival that a lot of people don’t get to know about, but lately I’ve been writing about a lot of what’s going on the streets. I also have one song that I wrote recently that’s about this chick I used to think about all the time.

Everybody sounds like somebody else, but I only sound like myself. There’s only one Poots.” Lil Poots emphasizes through his music that he is a self-made man. He grew up with a single mother with 3 children who worked her hardest to take care of all of them. He saved enough money on his own to move out to California to pursue his dreams. Once he got to California, he cleared out his closet to build a makeshift home studio. He got software and a laptop and started making music. As he developed as an artist and got better, he expanded his studio into a shed behind his house and began to “scratch my own stuff.” He’d freestyle in his own studio and organically come upon great lyrics that he’d scramble to write down before he forgot them.

“I would do whatever I gotta do to get where I want to get,” he said. “Nobody has helped me. No one has helped record my music. I just did it on my own. When people I hung out with used to drink and do crazy stuff, I would always say I was gonna be a rapper. I’d write down song and show my friends, and they liked it. I’ve always brought my own little energy and ad-libs, and I’m making it happen.”

Most recently Lil Poots released a party song called “It’s Going Down,” which is currently available on all digital downloading sites. It’s a song that he said is “just turnt,” with a hard beat and an upbeat vibe. He is also getting ready to release another single called “Trap Chronicles,” which he said is based on the mindset of a trapper and hustler.

Smooth Kid Dino – Yea | @NameBrandNCM

Smooth Kid Dino drop’s a smash for the clubs “Yea”

Smooth Kid Dino isn’t your average Chicago rapper who raps about drugs, money, and murder. Smooth Kid Dino is a multi-talented artist, he makes music that just about anyone can connect with. I’m not in his target market, but I found myself vibin’ to more than a just a few tracks from his “Underrated” album. I listened to all 12 tracks on the project, and I kept a few joints on repeat the boi got something here.

The song that sticks out to me the most right now is “Yea“. Yea is a hard, wavy, energetic song. After listening to his music I can tell that its something about “Yea” that brings out a different side of Dino. He switched up his style to match the energy in this hard hittin, trappy, melodic beat.

Listen to Smooth Kid Dino new single “Yea” below

Smooth Kid Dino is chasing a million dollar bag, while he’s hustlin’ hard on the road, you know how it goes when you’re focused on getting money everything else falls in line.

The intro to the album starts off with song “Pray For Me”. If your on your way out wit yo girl “Party Wit Me” is the perfect song to prepare you for the turn up. If you need a hard hittin, trapped out, banger “Yea” is the one! Smooth Kid stayed away from heavy auto-tune use, he explores the sound in song “Choices”.

The album features Tripstar, Storman Mac, Prince CEO, and close friend Young Affishal. The production for the “Under Rated” brought a lot different sounds, he worked with #ChaseTheMoney #CashMoneyYap #Ricorich, and more.

KG$ Vonte – Bikini Bottom

KG$ offers good vibes with chill new album ‘Kosher Way’

ATLANTA, GA – There are two things that KG$ Vonte has always loved: fast cars and good music. And those two things have come to be a dominant part of his life. When he’s not pushing cars to the limit, he’s in the studio creating new music to share with his fans.

The most recent offering is a mixtape called “Kosher Way,” which, of course, features a car on the cover art. It’s a more relaxed project than what KG$’s fans might expect, but that’s on purpose. He said he wanted to make something that people could listen to that’s not too rowdy, but instead chill and perfect for putting on at any time of the day.

“I wanted to take it back to when people were listening to full albums,” he said. “That’s what I came from listening to, and I wanted to make something that people could vibe to at any time of the day.”

The two main singles “Jet High” and “Bikini Bottom” from the album are perfect examples of the kind of vibe he’s trying to pass along. He said he always tries to make something a little different every time he goes into creating a new song, and these singles were definitely a different approach than he’s ever taken before.

“Whatever you do, be happy about it,” he said. “These songs are about showing people that what you’re doing is great if you like it. And if you like it, I love it. Just be you. That’s what my music is about, ultimately. I’m original and I’m always myself. And at the end of the day I just want to be known for good vibes and real songs.”

KG$ said he also loves that his music is an extension of the family and friends he has built around himself. He calls them the Kosher Gang – which includes his brothers and friends who support him both in his music career and share his love for the car culture. He has developed his own independent label with their help, called Kosher House, and when they’re not making music they can be found gaming or in the Atlanta street car scene.

YVBaby – Married To The Game


California Rapper to Release “Worth the Weight”
through Str8 Laced Entertainment

FRESNO, CA– From rap battling to taking on a Drake-inspired sound, YV Baby has been after the music since he could remember. Like most aspiring rappers, he grew up listening to Tupac, which really ignited a fire in him. He knew his passion had meaning behind it, which is why he took it upon himself to pursue a career in music. YV has always had an ear for music, and when it comes to making beats and producing his songs, it’s completely evident.

When it comes to the artist’s signature style, he doesn’t pigeonhole himself in one specific genre. His influences stem from a good amount of “old school” music, so those tones shine through in his music. “The soul is there. My sound kind of reminds me of something you’d hear from Bobby Valentino. I’m really different from other artists. I don’t want to be like anyone else,” said YV. In other words, the artist’s sound is truly what makes him who he is artistically.

As YV steps into the booth, he goes completely full throttle in terms of expressing himself. Everything comes directly from his heart, and aligns with the emotions he feels when he’s in the studio. This raw side of him can be heard through his latest projects, “Living the Life” and “Married to the Game”. “Nothing is slowing me down. I’m not letting

it- I’m staying focused, which is what ‘Married to the Game’ is all about. I’m pushing for success, and not letting anything get in the way of that,” said YV Baby. It’s always a surreal feeling to hear that your fans think your music is dope, which only motivates YV to continue chasing after his rap dreams.

Coming up this fall, YV Baby will be releasing his upcoming album “Worth the Weight”. He tells us there is way more music on the way, as so much he has been working on is currently unreleased. There is always something up his sleeve in terms of music, which is important to him in order to keep his fans satisfied. The artist is a true inspiration for aspiring musicians to follow- his work ethic is unmatched.

Nealy – The Passion of Rapping

Nealy’s new album offers fans a variety of ‘good vibes’

RALEIGH, NC – Justin Nealy is the kind of guy you just love to hang out with. He always has been. For as long as he can remember he’s had a natural talent for making people happy. And it just so happens that the best way he does that is through music.

When it comes to his artistry, his music serves as the backdrop for a true entertainer. He loves to record music, but he loves to perform it for a live audience even more. His most recent project is an album called “Paper Products” that he said he’s excited for fans to hear, and which he can’t wait to bring to people for some live performances over the next few months.

The project is a diverse offering of different sounds and styles that he hopes will be attractive to a wide variety of listeners. It features his unique sound and style that mixes clever wordplay laced with subtle humor that often leads to deeper ideas, all within a beat and vibe that people can enjoy.

“People can’t relate to a lot of the rap out there, but they jump to it because that’s what’s on the radio,” Nealy said. “I want people to understand me and know where my heart is when I’m writing music. And I want them to feel it the same way I feel it. My songs always depend on the beat. If I find something I like, I’ll listen to it over and over until I get the feel of it, and then I ask myself, ‘What can that feeling represent? Is it about love, or is it a club song, or is it a song that’s just for cruising and having a good time and smoking with my buddies?’ I never have an idea of the song until I actually fully feel the song I’m about to write to, and when it comes together I know others are gonna feel it, too.”

A perfect example of that is the debut single from the album, “The Passion of Rapping.” It’s a song that serves as an announcement to the world that his pursuit of success within the music industry is a serious endeavor that others should take seriously, too. It’s a song that proves he really can rap, and it perfectly encapsulates all the things he represents as an artist – funny, serious, cool and a little bit different. A music video for the single is due to drop in mid-to-late November.
