Rubee Stone – Dubai

East Coast Rapper/Singer Rubee Stone dreams big with new single ‘Dubai’ 

Rubee Stone is a fast-rising artist from Brooklyn, New York who has already been featured alongside big-name artists such as Skinny from the 9 and Jay Critch. And now, she’s set to drop one of her biggest singles of all time with the new song “Dubai.”  

The chill Hip Hop vibe is a departure from her usual fast-paced flow and as such, it makes people sit up and pay attention. As she daydreams about what the rich life could be like – a life that reaches its pinnacle in the luxuriousness of the city of Dubai – Rubee invites her fans to dream with her. It’s the perfect summer vibe that’s meant to be fun while also inspiring people to dream big and shoot for the stars. 

“It’s basically me talking about how I want to spend money and go to Dubai and have fun,” she said. “I’m young and have so much more to come, and I’m excited to share that with people. And this is one of those songs that the beat came on and I just started rapping and ended up coming up with that song so quickly.” 

Rubee worked closely with Yuri Tha Great to produce the single which is being distributed by Fully Focused Management. A video for the single will be shot in Dubai in mid-August, with Rubee fully realizing her dream by living large in the Middle East. 

That’s quite the culmination of a dream for this young woman who started dreaming of a music career at age 5. Growing up from the Bronx, she used to sing and write poetry at a young age, and as she got older, she started listening to Hip Hop and realizing that her two loves could be combined into something incredible. By age 12, she was writing her own songs and found her way into a recording studio. Throughout her teenage years, she developed a unique sound and style that combined her vocal ability with her talent as a rapper. Today, much of the music she creates features both of those skills.  

“I want my music to be known for the best music out there,” she said. “When people hear my songs, I want them to sing along and play them over and over again.” 

Rubee said “Dubai” is part of a bigger project that she plans to drop in August called “Out of Time.” She also said she’ll be bringing more videos later this year and plans to keep climbing the hill toward realizing her dream with even more music in 2021.

Neal Shoemaker gives you the true Harlem Experience through Harlem Heritage Tours

Native Harlemite Neal Shoemaker, started Harlem Heritage Tours in 1998, after realizing the opportunity that tourism offers Harlem to preserve its culture and contribute to the development of the local economy. All tours and events are conducted by those who were actually born and raised in Harlem. When we started Harlem Heritage Tours twenty years ago, many thought that visitors would be reluctant to visit the community. But to our pleasant surprise, realized that the public was thirsty for authentic experiences presented via the eyes of those who are actually from Harlem.

Customers have expressed to us that they want the heritage of Harlem to come alive.
Working with community partners, such as the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and the Apollo Theater, Harlem Heritage Tours have developed a series of multimedia bus / walking tours that present archival video and sound at the very sight where history happened – this method keeps the human touch while bringing the past to life – this is a first in the industry.

Across the planet individuals and organizations are exploring ways to incorporate community involvement into the design and development of tourism products and services. The goal is to respect the privacy and integrity of those who live and work in Harlem, and at the same time expose visitors to all that makes Harlem special. Because of our sensitivity, we receive more support from grass roots Harlem than any other tourism company in the community.

Over the past ten years we have met people from all over the world and we feel that tourism is a great tool to promote positive domestic relationships and heightened foreign diplomacy.

We look forward to another exciting twenty years in the business and look forward to seeing you in Harlem soon. Mr. Shoemaker can be reached at email: loveharlem@aol.com and www.harlemheritage.com

Diverse – B.B.Benson

New single from West Coast artist Diverse is sure to get listeners amped 

HAYWARD, CA – A new single from West Coast artist Diverse is bouncy and aggressive and fun –the perfect summer song for a year in which people are longing to have a good time. The feel-good vibes of “B.B. Benson” perfectly present this young up-and-coming artist to the world in ways that unabashedly show off his ability to deliver smooth flows with confident lyrics underneath an energy that is infectious. This song is guaranteed to get listeners amped. 

“When I’ve got something to say, I gotta let it go and let it flow,” Diverse said. “It took me 40 minutes to make this song because it just came out so easy. Me and my boy were in the studio working and after we finished a track we’d been working on for a while he asked if I wanted to make another one. I said sure, and he played me a beat that was super energetic. For some reason, it made me want to whisper which I do at the beginning of the song, and then I come on strong. I’m like water – I can adapt to anything and any beat and I’ll make it my own, and this song is a perfect example of that. Last year, I was doing more melodic and Post Mallone type songs, and this year I’m coming with the hot energetic tracks. I like big-ass crowds and mosh pits and that kind of stuff, and this song is perfect for that kind of energy.” 

Diverse first got his start in music at age 12 when he would watch his dad make beats in his studio. By high school, he had learned enough to start creating his own music and when friends and classmates started hearing his creations, they clamored for more. After graduating from high school, he and a friend would spend nearly every waking hour in the studio working on songs and experimenting with new sounds. He dropped his first mixtape in 2016, and then in early 2017 dropped his first album. More and more people began to take notice and he went on tour that year. His music began to be played on the radio and in the years since, he’s put up millions of plays on streaming platforms with his music.  

“Diverse isn’t just the name I go by, it’s the type of music I create,” he said. “It’s also my personality and how I hold myself which is different from other people. There are different races in me. I was a jock in high school but also loved drama. I was always different than anybody else and my music is a representation of that. I have different flows on this song – I sound like three or four different people instead of just one – but I’m always keeping it real. My music will always be that – talking about shit I can talk about and be comfortable with. I want to choose the best version of myself and show that to the world, and I want to inspire people to embrace that about themselves as well. Just be 100 percent honest – that goes a long way and that’s what I want my music to be known for at the end of the day.

Freeway and Gillie Da Kidd Appear In New Amazon Prime Show, ‘Chase Street’ Directed by Clifton Powell

Amazon Prime Video and Interstate Media Group are proud to announce the latest work from writer/producers Thomas Freeman Jr. and Denny Brown, titled, Chase Street. Chase Street is a compelling tale focused on the City of Camden, New Jersey, and is based on some of the events that took place in Camden during the early to mid 1990s.

“The inner workings of politics and the street culture in a mid size city are different than what you would see in New York or LA. That’s what makes Chase Street different. It’s Camden, New Jersey and it’s never been seen before,“ Thomas Freeman Jr..

Chase Street is a story set in Camden, New Jersey, but it’s the story of inner city America, a place where everyone is on the “chase.” The drug dealers chase the money. The addicts chase that next high. The police chase the dealers (and in some cases, the money). The politicians chase the power. Then there is the everyday resident -struggling day by day to get their piece of that elusive “American Dream” that always seems to be just out of their reach. In the race to run the city – all roads lead down Chase Street.

In Chase Street every aspect of the city, from the good to the bad, is explored in this six-episode show that is broken down in two separate parts, each containing three episodes.Thoms Freeman Jr and Denny Brown bring to life a Camden, New Jersey that is days away from a state takeover. Rose Fiori is after the billion dollars in development money and in order to do so, she recruits Aaron Best to groom him to be mayor. Best is a former NBA player who is beloved by the people of the city but besides his inexperience, Best faces another obstacle – his brother Ashley Spark Best is one of the city’s largest drug dealers.

Chase Street provides an introspective look at the dynamics that take place within inner city environments in America and the film also features a veteran cast that includes Clifton Powell (Ray, Norbit), Vincent Pastore (The Sopranos, Gotti) Taral Hicks (Bronx Tale, Belly), Jade Yorker (GridIron Gang, He GotGame), Gillie Da Kidd, and former Roc-A-Fella Records recording artist Freeway that make this a must see show.

Topnotch772 – We Made It ft. Beanie Sigel & JP

Former NFL hopeful uses pain to fuel passion for music 

VERO BEACH, FL – Inspiring the world is what Alonzo Phillips was made for, and his latest single “We Made It” is the perfect example of that. Featuring fellow artists Beanie Sigel and JP, “We Made It” is the perfect blend of energy and passion underneath lyrics that are timely and necessary for the current state of the world. 

“We’re putting some positive messages out there,” said Phillips, better known by his stage name TopNotch772. “Beanie’s verse talks about how he feels with what’s going on in the world today and it’s a little more mellow, and my verse comes at the same thing from a different perspective but it’s a little more upbeat. The overall message is that we’re gonna make it. And that’s the kind of music I want to make – positive messages that people can listen to when they’re going through something and they’re on the edge and they feel like giving up. My music is inspirational, uplifting and a little bit of street at the same time.” 

Those inspirational messages come from a life filled with a lot of pain. TopNotch first started rapping as an outlet for his emotions after his father was robbed and shot in the head. He and his father were very close and the loss was abrupt and deeply painful. He said he couldn’t turn to his mother during that time, either as she was addicted to drugs and wasn’t present. But Rap was just a side hustle that helped him emote, his real passion was football … and he was good at it. So good, in fact, that he was invited to the Buffalo Bills professional team’s minicamp. Though he didn’t make the 52-man roster, he knew he had the kind of elite athleticism to succeed at a high level and he pursued it hard … until yet another tragedy struck. 

While practicing with his professional indoor football team, he went up for a pass and came down wrong and snapped his tibia and fibula in half. The compound fracture had bones sticking out through his skin. The inner pain of his past was now mirrored by very real physical pain, and the two bounced off each other as he soon learned that his career as an athlete was over.  

“Pain is the reason I want to rap and share my story,” he said. “I know there is someone going through similar things to what I went through, and I know I can help them through music.” 

When he turned his full attention to music, TopNotch started gaining traction and making waves in the industry. He opened a show for Trick Daddy at a club in Cocoa Beach, Florida and has also opened for Yolanda Adams, Detrick HaddenTye Tribbet, Jessica Reedy and Fred Hammond. His previous single, “We Gotta Move” was on heavy rotation on multiple radio stations, followed quickly by more radio play from his song “Ain’t Nobody Mad.” Now with “We Made It,” TopNotch hopes to continue that success and expand his fanbase on more of a global level.  

“I’m never going down again,” he said, nodding to the meaning of his stage name. “No matter what it takes, I’m gonna stay up. I’ve lost people and I know how that feels, but instead of getting angry, I started writing songs, then doing shows, then next thing you know I’m opening for people like Trick Daddy. What got me started was pain and not wanting to find different unhealthy outlets for that pain, and I’m not gonna let anything bring me back down.”

Blaq Pyrates – Steady Growth

Hip Hop soul group Blaq Pyrates drops new single Steady Growth 

CORDELE, GA – One of the hottest street performing groups in the country has flown under the radar for the past few years, but with the launch of their new single “Steady Growth,” they’re set to launch into global recognition. 

The group is known as Blaq Pyrates, and they have been performing in major cities all over the South and Mid-West for nearly two decades. Originally known as the Trapville Pyrates, the group has won multiple awards over the years and have performed in some of the country’s most famous venues. In 2016, they were the winners of the Sony Music Distribution Competition Tour, followed by winning three Independent Tone Awards in 2017 including Artist of the Year in both the Pop and R&B/Soul categories as well as Band of the Year in the Alternative Rock category. They also won Hip Hop/Soul Group of the Year in 2018 for their single “Problems.” Their success gave them opportunities to perform in places such as WME Music Hall in Louisville, Kentucky, Liquid Lounge in Atlanta, Georgia, Daiquiri Lounge in New Orleans, Louisiana, and the South By Southwest Mansion Party in Austin, Texas, among others. Blaq Pyrates also appeared on the Legendary Khujo Goodie’s album ‘Feed The Lions’ Volume One. 

The group has fluctuated from as many as six members at one point to its current lineup of four artists. It was founded by Ali “Obawale” Rahman in 2003. Joining him were his two brothers, Amin “Obayemi” Rahman and Karim “Obatunji” Rothwell. The three performed under the stage names Fetty Cash, Rasta Rudd, and Marty MacFly, respectively. Their cousin Hayward Hollingsworth, AKA Koolgi Kid, joined them as well. They changed their name to Blaq Pyrates in 2007, choosing to adopt the acronym that stands for “Brothers Linked Amongst Qualifications, Protect Your Riches Alias Through Extreme Status” and have since performed under this name In 2009, Koolgi Kid left the Pyrates to start another group & was replaced by neighborhood friend, Michael Childs, named Nephew Shawty. In 2010, Jeffrey Alexander, named Jonny Papez, was added to the group’s roster but would later leave in 2018 to pursue other venturesIn 2015, Kendale Gibson, named York ILL, became the last member to join the group creating the group’s current four member lineup as follows: Rudd, York, MacFly, and Nephew. In the fall of 2017, the group incorporated their own independent record label Blaq Pyrate Nation, LLC naming Fetty Cash as the CEO. Unfortunately, in the fall of that same year, Fetty Cash lost his life in the streets of Cordele due to gun violence. Since his untimely death, the group has created a fashion line as a tribute to their CEO and lost member, called Zódoq Mebenki™, named after Fetty’s alter ego “Zodoq Banks”. 

Their steady rise to superstardom over the past three years has brought them to July 2020 and the release of their new single “Steady Growth,” which features independent artist Vigilany of New World Renaissance. The music video for the song was filmed in New York City’s Times Square approximately one month before the devastating COVID-19 outbreak.  

“It’s a song with a classic Hip Hop beat and Trap undertones,” said Marty MacFly. “We consider ourselves a Hip Hop and Soul group, but this song has a little more hype and energetic feel to it. It definitely will, for sure, get you inspired. It’s the perfect song to showcase our progressive growth over time. It encompasses what we’re about and what we’ve been doing. The video with different shots throughout Times Square will definitely give people that feeling of energy and success.” 

MacFly said the group is excited to see what the next decade will bring for them. As soon as it’s safe to do so, Blaq Pyrates will begin performing publicly again, and he promises that fans can expect more of the excellent sound they’ve been known for across the years while also bringing new energy and styles to the table. 

“Our music is about pushing businessentrepreneurship, independent wealth, and the American value system of hard work and dedication,” MacFly said. “We have a new age type of sound with old school concepts. When you listen to us, you’re gonna hear something that sounds completely different than what’s out there, and you know when you see us — it’s going to be unique and eye-catching.”

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.

What Are Masonry Dave Chappelle & Dr. EnQi Manifesting

Masonry Dave Chappelle #846 highlights what Elijah Muhammad predicted and Dr. EnQi has been manifesting.

Young Pharaoh and many other YouTube teachers have associated dangerous sociopathic behavior with the Masons & Freemasons. I must admit that I too believed all these ideas without a second thought until I saw Dr. EnQi teach, it was a mind-blowing game changer!

Dr. EnQi connected the Dave Chappelle 846 show to some of the secret teachings of Elijah Muhammad with masterful precision, showing how all of today’s events are related. Young Pharaoh is awesome, but he should get with Dr. EnQi, I feel that YP has surpassed Sa Ra Suten Seti thus he has nothing left to learn from him. Dr. EnQi clearly has mastered certain levels of information YP has not quite tapped into.
