Tynch – Nephilim

King of the South prepares to drop hot new album ‘Nephilim’ on Aug 4  

Tyler “Tynch” Blanchard is on a mission to be the king of Hip Hop in the South and put Arkansas on the map. His latest album, “Nephilim” is already starting to gain some attention across the country, and his debut single of the same name is the perfect showcase for this up-and-coming new performer. 

The laid-back vibe of the “Nephilim” single is the perfect kind of song to just chill with, Tynch said. Using the analogy of a fallen star and the “destroyer of gods” definition of the term NephilimTynch said the song examines what it takes to bounce back from the hard knocks of life.  

“There are other artists out there who call themselves Rap gods sometimes,” Tynch said. “Nephilim symbolizes that I can rap as good as anyone else. I’m very diverse and I’m an artist who has a lot of styles. This single is just one of many that you can see on the whole album, which has 20 total tracks.” 

While the single is currently available across all streaming platforms, the full album isn’t set to drop until August 4 which is the fifth anniversary of when Tynch started his company South Side King Productions. However, pre-order will be available on July 1st. 

Tynch produces, writes, mixes and masters all of his work and has been developing his own unique sound over the past five years so that today, his signature style is undeniable.

“I can modulate my voice and basically hit any beat as long as I can vibe to it,” he said. “I feel my lyrics are very creative. I put a lot of thought into that. You have to dig deep beneath the surface to get the full meaning of what I’m saying, which I think makes people engage more. At the end of the day, I want my music to be known for being real. I only write about stuff going on in my life – issues I’m dealing with or things I’ve experienced. But I do that in a different way than anyone else. Most important is that my lyrics are real and I want people to know that. And through that, I can relate with anyone who’s going through a similar circumstance.” 

Tynch said he’s always been a fan of Hip Hop music and recalls listening to artists like Lil Wayne when he was as young as age 6. Today, he said he leans more toward the NF kind of vibe, and loves how NF creates lyrics that always seem to relate to him. 

“I feel like if he heard my stuff, he’d feel the same way,” Tynch said. “We write about similar scenarios, just in different ways. It’s funny because originally, I wasn’t going to be a rapper, but I really like writing and I just fell in love with the art of Rap. No one else can portray what I’m seeing, but a lot of people can connect with what I’m saying. That’s what I love.”

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.

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.”

ZoneOO – Cuddy Buddy

Zone00 brings a unique and fresh style to the Hip Hop game

LOS ANGELES, CA – Hip Hop artist, Zone00 (aka Donteau Mazone) originally hails from Beaumont, TX. After joining the military, Donteau lived in different parts of the world and traveled extensively. Like his lifestyle, his music style cannot be pinned down to one particular place. Fusing influences from many regions, Zone00 delivers catchy beats combined with lyrical wit and spontaneity. While some rappers will claim to be king of a state or region, Zone00 is in a position to be the King of all Kings.

Released in October of last year, his 7 track EP, “King of All Kings” showcases the artist’s intriguing hybrid sound, a blend of different aspects from different places. Recorded at HandWrittenLA in Los Angeles, CA, the collection features the commercial friendly title track, along with the lyrical onslaught of “Beyond the Stars.” A relatable theme for fans of the genre, “Da Bag” is Zone00’s version of getting the bag. The aptly titled “Donteau’s Inferno” tells his life story in song. With a diverse array of topics and styles, the EP shows Zone00’s range, giving a small taste of who he is as an artist.

The “King of All Kings” EP followed the May 2019 release of “Legend You Never Knew.” After leaving a potentially huge 5-piece group which disintegrated due to creative differences, Zone00 released the LP to show listeners what they had not been getting. “This is what I bring to the Hip Hop game that makes me different from other people who are doing music now,” Zone00 said.

Most recently, Zone00 recorded two new singles at the legendary Paramount recording studio. Zone00 found out that artists he looked to as a barometer, such as Lil Wayne, Drake and Mariah Carey, had recorded at Paramount. He made the decision to record there and was able to knock out two great songs. “When it comes to doing music,” Zone00 said “you have to really invest in yourself.” From this new material, Zone00 is planning to lead off with “Cuddy Buddy,” a catchy, fun song with a playful hook and really aggressive style. He also recorded “Respect My G” which picks up on the “King of All Kings” theme to tell the world what he is bringing to Hip Hop.

When Donteau was growing up, his father became a fan of Ice Cube and Tupac after initially telling Donteau that Hip Hop would not be around for very long. Listening to DJ Screw, UGK, 8Ball & MJG,  Scarface, Beanie Sigel, Jay-Z and, E-40. He later took up songwriting and was mentored about the business side of music by a studio owner he met. Zone00 is now addicted to making music and works hard to create authentic music that touches listeners to the core. “One thing I love about music is you get the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy,” Zone00 said. “When you put something out, especially on the internet, you have a lasting impact in the universe. If you do something great, it’s always there for the world to know about it.”

Zone00 is extremely interested in relationship building and he believes you never really do anything by yourself. He values the importance of working with professionals and strives to raise others up as he succeeds. “That’s one thing I admire about 50cent. He put individuals he worked with in positions where they could be successful.” As the King of All Kings, Zone00 is well on his way to reign over the Hip Hop kingdom.

He was once Local Now hes BakeMan Global ALIVE is Causing A Stir and We are All About It

 

I may not be where I want to be, but I’m so far from where I used to be! A lot to be thankful for! – Bakeman Global 
Since his rise joining Para Music Group, there has not been one single person who does not know who Bakeman Global is . One thing is for sure 2019 has been the year for Bakeman.
The former basketball star who traveled the world had children waiting for him after he played is now making people wait in lines as hes shutting down the independent scene. Released on the 17th ALIVE (Adopted to Life in Various Eras) is the example of the power this man wields with his pen.

The ten song project is a musical representation of his thoughts and his life, while its cover is a symbolic representation of himself. Going off of our own opinions the statue head represents Bakeman and the Legacy he will leave once his time on this planet is up. The crack on the side of his face shows that the struggles of life are not always easy and hes continuing to prosper through life.
The lead single The Old You featuring the Hamiltones is by far one of the most creative singles I have heard in 2019. The former background vocalists for soul singer Anthony Hamilton have added their quartet styled music and RNB vibes really gave us the vibe of a Hip Hop Love Story.
Be Gone should be the anthem of 2019-2020, during our everyday struggles we encounter people that give us negative energy.  This song is dedicated to the naysayers and those that put us through nothing but grief. His aggressive approach and the production by Davincii shows us how serious he is in protecting his aura in life.
Where were You featuring Kenny Dark has us in our feelings as he is at his most vulnerable. A testament to his father he is speaking to him as he discusses what the absence of the paternal figure has left him.  As someone that lost their father at an early age you learn to feel for people that go through what you went through or similar to.
Without giving the whole project away make sure you check out ALIVE on all digital streaming platforms and follow him on ig: @bakemanglobal
