Kurrlina Kurrlina – Karma

North Carolina rapper with new single ‘Karma’ proves that hard work pays off

FAIRMONT, NC – Those who live in North Carolina know that there’s a certain way you say “Carolina.” You need to use a thick Southern drawl with the vowels drawn out so that it sounds more like “Kurrlina.” It’s a signature sound that stands out – there’s nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

That’s also true of North Carolina rapper Markel Albritton who embraces his roots by using the stage name Kurrlina Kurrlina. As one would expect, his drawl is forefront as part of his signature sound, but its witty wordplay and catchy hooks are turning heads all along the East Coast these days.

His newest single “Karma” has been getting quite a bit of attention. The upbeat, all-purpose track is perfect for club banging or hanging in the hood. It’s full of energy and pairs with an inspirational message that encourages listeners to pull through the negative things in their lives and turn them into positives.

“I work hard and I’ve been working hard for years,” Kurrlina said. “That, more than anything, is what sets me apart from anyone else. Nobody sounds like me and I don’t sound like anybody else because my style is distinct. But more than anything, I never quit. I keep going and growing and stay popping, and that’s what this song is about.”

Kurrlina said he first was introduced to Rap through his love of poetry. He became known in high school as a guy who would put a lot of crazy words together to create interesting rhyme schemes, and when he started using that power to share his unique story, people started to pay attention. Today, most of his music is based on his life and the stories he has to share with the world. Those stories are inspired by the things he’s seen or gone through and tinged with his dreams and aspirations for the future.

“I’m talk about real-life, inspirational stuff,” he said. “I represent the struggle and my music is inspired by real events, which is why it relates to people. I’m trying to spread a wave and set a mark on the world. I have what it takes not just to survive but to thrive, and it’s time for people to take notice. We’re just doing what we gotta do to get where we wanna go.”

Over the past decade, Kurrlina has dropped five mixtapes each year, with music that has won him five outstanding performances and put him on the map in a way that has allowed him to open for major artists such as Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young LA, and Legend Zero. He has also dropped several videos, each gaining hundreds of thousands of plays on his YouTube channel. Now under the management of J’Will with J’Will Entertainment, Kurrlina said he’s ready to take his music to the next level and begin bringing in a wider international audience.

Red Coral Music and Fambiz Entertainment announce Joint Venture with Red Coral Music @fambinohoodpranks

Red Coral Music and Fambiz Entertainment are pleased to announce their Joint Venture Red Coral Music will be a home for a diverse list of artistic talents and established names in the world pf music.. Larry Meistrich of Red Coral Music is a well-known film producer, also known as the founder and chairman of Diginext Studios and The Shooting Gallery, an independent film distribution company. He has produced many successful films, including Sling Blade, Belly, New Jersey Drive, You Can Count on Me and the just released HoodPranks The Movie (with Fambiz Entertainment). He is a recipient of an Independent Spirit Award You Can Count On me, and an Academy Award win and nomination for Sling Blade and You Can Count On Me, respectively. Both Belly and New jersey Drive’s Soundtracks went Gold. Following a successful career in production, he went on to found NEHST studios, a distribution company that churned out many successful independent films. NEHST combined with another studio to create Red Coral Releasing, which today has an ever-growing network of films, the most recent being Fambiz Production’s HoodPranks, a satire akin to Jackass set in the inner cites of Paterson and Newark, New Jersey as well as The Bronx. He founded Red Coral Music in 2019, a music production company that works with established music studios with the aim to release and market music from up and coming artists as well as creating soundtracks and scores for the films he is producing.. He is a savvy business man and marketer in addition to his accomplishments, and looks forward to the new opportunities that will arise from the merging of these two already flourishing companies.

Chaca “Fambino” Murphy aka The GODFATHER of Hoodpranks is the CEO of FamBiz Entertainment, writer and executive producer of HoodPranks the Movie. Fambino’s strength in film and music have come naturally due to his long term experience in the industry on both sides of the table. Fambino began his career in the music industry as one half of the successful rap duo Babalu Boys signed to A&M/Tuff Break records. Familiar with the struggle of an upcoming artist while understanding the passion and dedication needed to make it to the top, it was an easy move from artist to executive at Warner Bros. Records. Under his tenure at Warner Bros Records, Fam saw the success of the following artists Jaheim, Leelah James, and Sporty Thieves. He is also responsible for the discovery of the popular hip hop/R&B group Total. With strategic collaborations through top production houses like Big Stomach Productions, Pulse Music, IMI Studios as well as a supporting team with Anthony Ciccilini (General Manager), Alec Murphy (Chief Marketing Officer) and Phya Harris (Chief Operating Officer), all artists can rest assured knowing their project is in good hands.

With the unification of these two talents, the newly formed company aims to continue to manage and produce new artists trying to make it in the music industry with the unique resources of both companies. The goal is to do so in the traditional sense of a label, while also factoring in the benefit of the chairmen’s prominent roles in film, TV and music—giving artists a sure-fire opportunity to be featured on soundtracks and projects and create scores, thereby giving them the ability to be marketed and distributed through pre-established channels of entertainment. Artists already represented include Brixx, Malik Johnson’s Big Stomach Productions, Payson, and Staii Winning, among others. Meistrich and Fambino are thrilled to be working in tandem to discover new talent and take the next step towards building a successful company together.

Robert Nicklas – New Whip

Seasoned songwriter, Robert Nicklas releases new “Vibe Feelin” EP

DENVER, CO – Singer, songwriter and professional musician, Robert Nicklas is proving that hard work and perseverance pay off. He puts a tremendous amount of work into each and every one of his compositions. But not everything he writes makes it to the end of the line. A prolific songwriter, he worked up between 100 and 200 beats to get the right feel for the five songs on his latest project.

The end result of Robert’s persistence can be enjoyed on his new EP, “Vibe Feelin.” Released on April 29th of this year, the R&B tracks have a distinct Hip Hop feel, but with singing instead of rapping. The lead single, “New Whip” was born from a melody which played over and over in Robert’s head. For this track, he worked with as many as ten different beats to get the perfect fit he was after. “New Whip” falls into the mold of a radio friendly vibe he was shooting for, and the “Vibe Feelin” has a bit more of a Pop flavor than some of his previous work.

Last summer, Robert worked with experienced Atlanta-based producer, Terrius Miller, on two singles titled “More & More” and “Club Love.” Miller has worked with the likes of Chris Brown, Outkast and Destiny’s Child, and Robert’s two singles received a tremendous amount of radio play in the Atlanta market.

During the 90s, Robert Nicklas started to get serious about making his own music professionally and he released music in 2003 on the Chicago-based label, Sonic Wave International. He also went to college for piano, so his musical influences range from Beethoven, Bach, Schubert, Schumann and Chopin to Herbie Hancock, Coltrane, Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, Bell Biv Devoe and even Dr. Dre.

As a classically trained piano player, he found it challenging to play without written music at first. In his early 20s, he met a drummer whose father played saxophone with Count Basie. Robert had to forget a lot of his classical training and learned how to play music from this drummer across the room. “You have to throw everything away to be able to play from inside, rather than looking at music,” Robert said.

His taste in music is all over the place, but he mainly enjoys listening to all the new music that is trending. Listening to genres that are pushing music forward keeps Robert’s energy going. He finds that Hip Hop artists are pushing the edge of the envelope for the direction of music now, and he incorporates those elements into his songwriting.

Robert has possessed a gift for music since he was very young. By trying hard and pushing harder, Robert ends up excelling at his craft. That special feeling of joy when a new groove hits is what keeps him going, and he is constantly writing. Just a few days after dropping his new EP, Robert was straight back in the writing mode and coming up with new material to see what tasty tracks he can create next.

They are very hands-on with everything we have going on with Club WorldWide. My managers, Jae Finesse and Tee have helped me so much as well. From bookings, interviews and everything that goes into management. They keep me level headed, they keep my life less chaotic and give me great advice 24/7. It’s a blessing.”

In the limelight, DJ Young has transitioned his popularity into branding as he establishes himself as a correspondent which led to an interview with entrepreneur Freeway Rick Ross and building on the fanfare foundation with merchandising and touring.

“I am currently working on the Club WorldWide Brand and building it so that it can reach its full potential of a full running business selling club worldwide merchandise. I plan after this COVID-19 pandemic is over to go on a tour to different states and cities and meet all of my supporters. I am also currently working on a Club worldwide cruise starting the Summer of 2021 which I want to make happen every year for all of my supporters to have a trip they can go to annually.”

Along with seizing his defining moment in the public eye in 2020, he maps out a five-year plan that includes collaborations with a-listers and big events spread out throughout the U.S. As he explains:

“In 5 years I hope to be very successful at Djing for Big named celebrities, going on tour DJing for a big named artist, having a successful business selling merchandise for my brand, and also producing music, I just want to be doing what I love which is music and making a difference through it.”
