Lil Dane – I Go For Mine

Ringing endorsement from Jadakiss propels young artist Lil Dane in front of millions of fans

BATON ROUGUE, LA – It’s one thing to have close friends and fans laud the success of your work. But when a big-name celebrity whose work has influenced millions gives you that mark of approval, it takes things to an entirely different level.

Such is the case for Louisiana-based artist Lil Dane whose latest EP “Greatness” got a stamp of approval from Jadakiss. After posting his praise for Lil Dane’s EP on his Twitter feed, Jadakiss helped propel “Greatness” in front of millions more fans. And as such, the rising young artist from Louisiana has been seeing a wave of success with his music ever since. 

“I’m so proud of this EP and so focused on getting it in front of more people right now because I really believe it’s going to take me further,” Lil Dane said. “Jadakiss having his name on it means I think it can go even further. That’s a big deal for someone like me who is putting in all this work and doing it all on my own – no manager and no team. But I feel good about it.”

“Greatness” dropped in 2019 and features four songs that explore what it takes to strive for greatness and excellence. Lil Dane said he tapped into inspiration from some of the Hip Hop legends of the 1990s in an attempt to “bring back the old Hip Hop style.” His songs are lyrical and gives listeners a lasting first impression that ultimately makes them want to come back for more. And, of course, being from the South, his Louisiana drawl plays strong across all his songs.

More than anything, it’s his lyrics that make him stand out. It’s those lyrics that have caused critics throughout the South refer to him as the “2Pac of his generation.” His music is poetic and tells the story of what’s going on today, as well as experiences from his past and reams of his future. He is the new wave of rappers in that he uses his business smarts to be successful in the industry. To date, he’s had listening sessions with labels such as Roc Nation and Republic Records and has worked with other artists such as Max Minelli, Turk from Cash Money, and Cassidy Jim Jones Lil Scrappy. 

In addition to “Greatness,” Lil Dane said he has more music on the way, including a new single called “Determined” which will feature Cassidy. That single is slated to drop later this summer.

Big Love – KingPin

Death of older brother inspires Texas artist
to create soul-searching new album ‘Versatile Child’

WACO, TX – When Shawn Love was young, one of his favorite things to do was ride around town in the car with his older brothers, Aston and Deon. The three of them would turn on music and freestyle, making up their own songs from other people’s music and competing with one another to see who could have the hardest adlibs. If Shawn’s adlib was off, his older brothers would coach him and help him be better. The three formed a close bond.

So it came as a hard hit when Deon was killed in 2017 after being shot in the back three times. The family is still reeling from the loss, and for Shawn, the best outlet has been music. And so, taking the nickname passed onto him from his older brother – Big Love – this budding young musician has put together an album that pays homage to the late Deon in a way that also connects to others around the world who have experienced loss and heartache and pain. 

The album is called “Versatile Child,” and it serves as Big Love’s introduction to the world. It’s a project that showcases his unique sound and style in a way that new fans around the country are already clamoring for. With hints of Dolph and Wiz Khalifa, Big Love takes inspiration from some of the legends of Hip Hop and puts his own spin on it, creating a one-of-a-kind sound that is undeniable.

“I’m in my own zone,” Big Love said. “I just want to sound like me. What you see is what you get. “Versatile Child” is fueled by the passing of my brother, but it also has songs on there that a lot of people who don’t like rap will like. I make music for all people to like. I talk about a lot of different things on the album which makes it unique because it’s not the same on every song. The main reason I started making music was because my brother passed. But we actually lost more people after that almost back-to-back. It felt like one person would pass this week, then after a few weeks another person, and so on. So seeing my family go through heartaches for so long, I took it upon myself to make it my mission to be the reason why everyone smiles. My family is strong and blessed. I wouldn’t trade them for the world.”

Big Love said “Versatile Child” lives up to its name by showcasing a lot of different styles and deliveries. Sometimes he’s singing on the hook and sometimes he’s giving listeners straight rap. He’s always trying new things while staying in his own lane, which is part of what makes him so versatile. 

“People don’t really know me, and this album is my way of easing them into my world,” he said. “I have a few songs that are heart-touching and some that are more upbeat. People who have heard it have been saying they love it, and I’m eager for more people to check it out.”

One of the standout singles from the album is a song called “KingPin.” It’s a song that explores the various reasons relationships shift and evolve over time, and Big Love uses an experience with an old friend to illustrate the sometimes-hard roads that have to be navigated when it comes to meaningful relationships.

“’KingPin’ is me expressing the disloyalty of my friend and how you can’t trust no one,” Big Love said. “However, it’s also my motivation to keep going. If you really want to do something, then you have to invest in yourself. It’s also me being in my own lane and trying to get to be the best person I can be. When I cut that song on, it makes me want to go harder. I catch myself replaying it over and over because it’s basically my motivational song. This song is talking about real-life stuff and it really brings together everything that I want my music to be known for. I want my music to be known for getting my message out. It’s just me and as I progress, you’ll get to know me more and join me on the journey. I just want to make some good music and at the end of the day, if you can enjoy my music, then that’s everything.”

Chazo – Doughboy

New York artist set to drop follow-up EP
to successful debut effort

HARLEM, NY – The wave of success that fast-rising New York artist Chazo has seen since his debut EP release “GoodFood GoodWomen GoodVibes” in late 2019 has propelled him onto the music scene in ways that cannot be ignored. And now he’s set to follow up that eye-opening EP with a second installment called “GoodFood GoodWomen GoodVibes: The Intro.” 

Set to drop by March 20, this project features four new songs from Chazo that he said will help fans get to know him better as a person and as an artist.

“The last one was the prequel so it talked about everything that happened with me before the music,” he said. “This one is the intro. It’s all original music and content and all of them are album cuts. They’re not really mainstream commercial songs. They’re more songs that you can get to know me. I really believe you can learn about an artist the best by their album cuts. And with this, I’m showing people I’m continuing with quality material and making music that will continue to resonate with people, like the first one did. It has the same feel and vibe you might get from the first one – with storytelling and quality songs – but it has different styles of music. That’s what I want people to take from me as an artist – relatable and versatile.”

The first song on the new EP features fellow artists C-Nellz and APO. Chazo said the concept of the song is to introduce people to the idea of what it takes to start over in life. He said it’s a song that gives people a sample of his life and nods to the things he talked about in the prequel EP, but then flips the script and introduces them to this new life that he’s undertaking as a professional musician and entertainer.

From there, he takes listeners on a ride with the single “Dough Boy.” It’s a song that he said showcases his unique skill as a rapper.

“It’s me just rapping,” he said. “I’m being a rapper’s rapper. I’m freestyling on an original beat and showing my skills.”

That song is followed by “Another Story” which Chazo said may be the most relatable single on the EP. It’s a song that nods to all the minorities who have grown up in the hood. And though he said he recognizes that there are thousands of other songs about the struggle and street life, this song is one that is very personal to him and will connect with many people because of how it presents a universal story of a kid growing up and how he wants to tackle social justice and political issues and ultimately make a difference in the world.

The final song on the EP is “Reality Check” which Chazo said is simply a song about taking a hard look at the things that go on every day of our lives that we often overlook.

“It’s things an average person go through – whether with family or friends or associates or work-life,” he said. “Everybody has a story, and this song pushes people to take a look in the mirror and ask themselves if they’re really living the best life they can live. One of the things I love about this project is that everything is universal. Everybody can relate to it in some way. You might be at work having a good vibe with a co-worker, or on vacation, or at the table with your family having good food, or out somewhere with your homegirls … every possible experience is incapsulated with the title ‘GoodFood GoodWomen GoodVibes.’”

Mayne – No Hook

Deep emotions and unique lyrics combine controversially on new music from Mayne

Landover, MD – Originally from Mississippi and raised in Maryland, Jamel “Mayne” has always been a soulful guy whose emotions run deep. Moving around quite a bit as a child, he found a passion for art, human skill, listening to soulful music and writing, and often wrote poetry to better express the riot of emotions running through his mind. He would soon discover the potential of his poetry after joining the Marines right out of high school, paired with a roommate who played the guitar. The two had one thing in common, the love of music. Mayne quickly discovered that the poems he’d written for so many years worked even better as lyrics on top of his roommate’s original guitar riffs.

Not until years later did Mayne discover what he stood for and knew exactly how he needed to deliver it. He broke back into the music scene with the EP “Soul Speak,” which he says is about spiritual growth. The single titled “No Hook” – with its intoxicating beat and melody – is comprised of different songs, bands and artists in a way that solidifies what he feels his song should represent, that being teaching and guiding through music, like a lot of the music he enjoys to this day.

His newest project is a two-track EP called “Moonlight Dream,” which explores the double meaning behind things like growing up in the streets or the false face that the world often presents through the paradigm of culture and technology. 

“I would consider myself a spiritually focused artist who is speaking with intent to connect to the emotions and spirit of the listeners, rather than the ego,” he said. “When I craft songs, I write with the aim to speak not to follow the trend but for the sole purpose of speaking from true inner feeling bringing different perspectives on life, love and passion of having faith and finding purpose. I like to think of myself as being very knowledgeable about different styles of music, and I’m open to listening to a lot of different genres. All forms of music I believe has an energy that can either lead to the promotion of negativity or positivity, destruction or creation. I look deeply into situations and events, I’m an analytical person and my music I believe or at least try to help people associate with the emotions and true feelings that come from what’s going on around them.”

Mayne said there are a lot of roots of alternative rock to his music. But even that descriptor doesn’t truly do his signature style justice. It’s more of a guide than anything else, as Mayne prides himself on bringing an original sound that nods to what’s popular today, but also stretches the boundaries of what’s progressive and new. 

“My music has a lot of double meanings in the songs,” he said. “I know not everyone is going to listen and get what I’m saying in the underlying message, so I also try to make the track relatable for the conscious as well as those who just want to hear beats.  I don’t always succeed but I make the attempt. But if you were to really listen to it, you’ll see that there’s actually something deeper there. Only a person who is more aware and conscious will understand what my music is really supposed to say. But really, at the end of the day, I want my music to just be something you can vibe to that brings you an energy that creates and love. My music is not negative or meant to try and destroy. It wants to rebuild. I don’t want to be known for putting anyone down, it’s enough of that. When you have a platform like this, it comes with a lot of responsibility. I don’t want to perpetuate a negative cycle even if I have done something that maybe seen as being THE WAY. I’m trying to figure out a new way to get my point across in more positive and creative ways to engage.”
