Key$oul – Hop Out The Benz

Key$oul Releases A New Single “Hop Out The Benz” on ALL Digital Streaming Platforms!

Keiontae Alexander better known as Key$oul is a 25 year hip-hop artist out of Benton Harbor Michigan. Honesty is the name of the game for Key$oul, no smoke and mirrors, $oul wants you to see the pain, the struggle and ultimately the reward that comes from grinding in life. Influenced by the hip-hop and R&B since his inception, it’s like destiny wanted $oul to begin creating his own art. In 2016, with the Internet in full swing and artists, both mainstream and independent seeing success, $oul wanted to throw his hat in the ring. However unlike some who jump into industry, Key$oul was more than ready and in fact excited about the work ahead.

Our Michigan hero spent the following years in the background, working, learning, grinding in an attempt to make it out. $oul says “I constantly focused on improving. I was at the studio, rain, sleet, or snow.” The hard work would pay off as Key$oul has two singles well over 22K plays with his “Wow Freestyle” closing in on 50K plays and this is just on Spotify alone. The hard work behind the scenes is also what led to “Vibe With Me” a collaboration $oul did with Florida R&B singer Della Cruse. Key$oul wants listeners to walk away motivated and with the confidence that they can “accomplish anything” whether you’re starting from the bottom or starting over $oul believes you can make it to the top.

828 – Sack

Howard University duo 828 set to drop bold new album ‘Check In’

PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, MD – A hot new Hip Hop duo from the esteemed Howard University is making a splash with their music in ways that are reverberating in all corners of the globe. 

Known as 828, the fast-rising duo of GoldenPrince and DripE have found their tracks receiving high praises from people in the U.S. and abroad. Their first EP, “Drop Off,” was a bold introduction to a sound and style that has people sitting up and paying attention. And they’re set to follow up that success with their new album, “Check In.” 

“It’s a project where we’re trying to target different types of audiences,” GoldenPrince said. “There’s songs with females on it. There are songs speaking about life and what we’ve been through. There are songs that people will be able to relate to. It’s different from our first project which we got a lot of good feedback from. We’ve been working extremely hard on the album – up at 5 a.m. working on songs even though we had class at 9 a.m. We were determined to complete this album, but we wanted to take our time and make sure we had quality over quantity.”

The project will include 12 songs that put 828’s signature sound on full display. From the beginning, the best friends have had a special connection. They first met at age 10 when they were on the same basketball team. Now that they go to the same college, they’ve expanded that bond to include a mutual pursuit of music. And that unique bond shines through their music. Listeners can immediately tell that there’s chemistry there, leading to excellence in sound, style, flow and production.

“We have more of a mainstream type of sound,” GoldenPrince said. “And it’s an international sound. We have people in Mexico and other places around the world listening to our music, so it’s not just for people in the U.S. We have different audiences all over, and that’s great because we just want to showcase our skills. We’re great storytellers but we also bring energy. We want to make you dance. We create different types of music – some to make you think and some to make you dance. This album showcases that. Every song is going to give you a different feel. That’s how we want to separate ourselves, with that different sound and experience.”

DripE added that the main impetus for the songs they create are whether or not it’s something they’d want to listen to at the end of the day. “We’re young and we go to parties and we like music,” he said. “We want to make music we’d like to hear at those parties. But we’re doing it with a different kind of vibe. We’re making music you can vibe to but also music you can relate to.”

The debut single from the album has already been released and is available across all streaming platforms. The song is “Sack” and takes an upbeat tone to convey 828’s story of coming up and making it in the music industry. DripE said it has more of a California vibe than a lot of their other songs, and definitely falls into the lane of the kind of song that will make people want to get up and dance. 

“We have a lot of influences and have listened to a lot of different artists over the years, but we don’t want to be compared to anybody else,” GoldenPrince said. “We want to leave a legacy where 10 years from now you could look back and say that 828 is one of the best rap duos of all time. I believe we’re up next.”

Produkt – Supreme Wizards

Bronx-based Puerto Rican rapper drops hot new single ‘Supreme Wizards’

BRONX, NY – Produkt, the hard-hitting rapper from The Bronx whose one-fan-at-a-time grassroots philosophy has netted him hundreds of thousands of followers worldwide, has dropped yet another hit with his latest “Supreme Wizards.”

Detailing the downside of the fast life, Produkt uses this darker, ambient song to examine the negative aspects of a lifestyle that more often than not costs people their lives or their livelihood. 

“Everybody is quick to glorify and champion all the dark and dumb shit they have to do to make money on the streets,” Produkt said. “But that will cost you in the end. It’s not the road to success and it shouldn’t be your definition of success. A lot of my music is dark and very serious, but that’s because there are a lot of people in pain in our world especially now. The amount of loss we’re going through right now is unprecedented. I want to be that voice and inspiration for people – to inspire the unspoken. So even though this is a darker song, at the end of the day, I hope my music helps people pick themselves up and dust themselves off and be motivated to keep going for whatever it is they love. They don’t have to get caught on the hamster wheel and get swallowed by life and give up on their ambitions and dreams. Kick that shit in the ass and fight for what you want. Believe in yourself.”

“Supreme Wizards” is the debut single from Produkt’s latest album, “Hit and Run” which is set to be available across all streaming platforms by summer 2020. It’s a project that features half a dozen artists with Frank Benz and Rothstien in particular, highlighted the most. Those two are business partners with Produkt for their independent label X Records. Rothstien is also featured on the first verse of “Supreme Wizards.”

Produkt is making a splash along the East Coast with his new music and he isn’t new to the industry. He’s been making music for more than a decade and is the first rapper to ever be nominated for more than three single-year underground music awards at the UMAs. His name started to become well known across the U.S. in 2014 when he released two hit singles, “Hold It Down” and “Freak Affair.” His success has helped to garner him millions of views on YouTube for his music videos. His newfound success has given him a renewed outlook on the industry, and a recent shift toward inspiring others has helped his music be embraced by an ever-widening fanbase globally. 

“It’s not a stretch to say that positivity is contagious,” he said. “And I pair that with a strong, straight, nostalgic Hip Hop presence in a way that captures something melodic – something on the softer side with a more ambient, melodic vibe. There’s nothing that will stop me from being a force in this game.”

King Harlem – Street Korner Muzik

King Harlem takes near-death experience and parlays it into message for people living street life

BALTIMORE, MD – King Harlem has a lot of memories of his time on the streets of Baltimore, Maryland – not the least of which is the two-day period during which he lost his brother to a shooting, and then was shot himself nine times and nearly lost his own life. His road to recovery – which includes the amputation of one leg and having to re-learn how to walk – has been a long one. The lessons he’s learned along the way are profound and ones that he hopes to be able to share with other young people living the street life. Those words of wisdom are paired perfectly with a unique sound and style on his most recent single “Street Kroner Muzik.”

The song was born from a recent moment with a friend with whom he reunited after many years apart. They’d grown up on the streets together, and they decided to meet up to catch up on one of the street corners that held special significance for them. While standing on that corner, sharing memories and remembering friends and brothers they’d lost over the years, the truths of their past lives began to cut to the core. King Harlem said he realized how blessed he was to still be alive, and that flash of inspiration led to his latest single.

“I’ve been doing music for a while but I never really was serious with it until maybe five years ago after a lot of things happened in my life,” he said. I was really in the street life so I wasn’t focused on music. You can’t be focused on too many things when you’re living that kind of life. Then I got shot nine times and died twice. They told my mom I had died, but I made it through. The doctor told me I’d never walk again, and a lot of people gave up on me. But one of my friends – the same friend who used to rap with me back in the day and was creating beats – just kept coming to me faithfully. I told him I don’t really rap anymore but he just kept giving me beats. Between that and this desire to prove people wrong about not walking anymore, it put the energy back in me. It wasn’t easy but I’m able to walk now and I’ve been trying to tell people that they can change through my music. When I was living on the streets, I thought the only way I would die would be young on the streets like my brother, or from old age or disease. But when I was in the hospital, so many people were going through so many things – a lot of them worse than being shot. I got to understand how big life is. We have to cherish it. And hopefully when our time is up, God will forgive us for everything we did. I just want to be ready when it’s that time.”

Growing up in Baltimore where Hip Hop culture is a heavy influence on young people, King Harlem found a natural talent for Rap. At one point he was signed to an independent label. Today, he hopes to become one of the voices that help associate Baltimore with a signature sound, like many other cities across the U.S. He said his talent means a lot to him because of his ability to change the game for people who listen to what he has to share. 

“I believe I have a lot in my head, and I want to share that with the world,” he said. “Through Rap, I hope to inspire my audience so they know where I’m coming from. I’m a soul survivor and I like to be honest and tell about my life. I can only give my life and everything I’ve been through, and just keep it as real as possible. And at the end of the day, I just want my music to be known for being authentic and for having a sound that people will come to call that ‘Baltimore sound.’ I want to create something that can be groundbreaking and associated with Baltimore. But ultimately, I just want to be authentic.”

“After listening to the new single from B. Bandz, I have to give it a rating of 4. It would definitely hype up the younger generations. You can definitely tell that it is a midwest banger by the flow and the beat. It follows in the footsteps of 147Calboys “Envy Me” with a hyper energy.
