Ben Grizz – Steak and Rice

Ben Grizz Keeps Charts Hot with “Expensive Taste”

FITCHBURG, MA – If you want to know who’s currently making his bid to become Massachusetts’ next hip-hop star, look no further than Ben Grizz. Growing up around the music, Ben often found himself dabbling into it. He only started buckling down in efforts to grow his career as an artist about a year ago. The growth is impressive because ever since then, he has taken his talents to the next level.

Ben describes the past year as a complete rollercoaster. With developing his sound and perfecting his craft, he’s navigated all of the ups and downs that come with it. “It’s been an experiment finding out what works and what doesn’t. I like to make club music, but I don’t define myself by a genre. I bring a lot to the table,” said Grizz. Adding to that, the artist tells us how genuine he is not only through his music, but also in everyday life. His sound is what he refers to as old school warmth with a modern day punch.

Last October, Ben released his fan-favorite EP “Expensive Taste”. Since then, his music has circulated radio charts, especially hip-hop focused ones. “I’ve gotten some really positive feedback since the release. The album release party sold out, and it was wild. People are really loving it,” said Ben. The album reflects on a lifestyle that the artist lives out each day. Through this, fans can get a peek into his world, which is always respectable.

What’s coming up next in the world of Ben Grizz? This weekend, he has a show in Fitchburg, MA, which will likely have a packed house. He tells us fans can expect a lot more from him, especially from a visual perspective. If you’re in Austin for SXSW, make sure to check him out- he will be there keeping the stage hot!

$pender – Audemars (feat. Lil Cobaine and J Bandz)

Hot new single ‘Audemars’ hits airwaves
from up-and-coming artist $pender

DALLAS, TX – One of Spencer Johnson’s fondest memories from his childhood is of sitting in his grandmother’s living room, listening to her play the piano. Those early moments in his life planted a seed of love for music that grew over time. At age 5 he asked his parents to buy him a guitar, and in the years since he has learned how to play multiple instruments and create music of his own.

Midway through high school, Spencer was introduced to rap by some friends who were freestyling during their lunch breaks. It opened up a whole new world of possibility for him – combining his natural ability as a musician with his talent for writing rapid-fire lyrics that strike a chord with anyone who listens. As he showcased his talent to his classmates, one friend hyped him up and called out the nickname $pender. It stuck, and today $pender is on the fast-track to becoming one of the world’s hottest new hip-hop icons.

Fans can get a taste of his newest music with the single “Audemars,” which just dropped across all digital streaming platforms. Featuring Lil Cobaine, the song uses the Audemars Piguet watch as a metaphor for the finer things in life. $pender said in addition to being a song that people can just chill to and enjoy as a good piece of music, it’s also a song that taps into the core of what he wants to be known for, which is encouraging others to stay positive and chase after their dreams.

“All I really want to do is make people feel a positive vibe and connect with the music,” he said. “I make music that hits you right in the ears and is pleasing. I want to be a person that others see as someone who views everything in life from a positive viewpoint, and I want to help others put that into perspective for themselves. I want to define positive moments through music.”

$pender said the new single is the first release of many to come, leading up to a full album called “Spend Bandz” that he is working on in collaboration with fellow artist J-Bandz. Their plan is to drop singles steadily over the next few months, leading up to a big release of the full album toward the end of the year. $pender said the album with be “like no other album.”

“Every single track will have a different vibe,” he said. “One song will be Latin, another R&B, another straight rap. We’ll have some amazing features on there, like Famous Dex and Lil Cobaine. Mostly we’re going for versatility, but they’ll all be songs that sound good and are pleasing to listen to. I’m just trying to put out what comes from inside of me. I’m making my way up to the top and aspiring to achieve certain things I’ve set my mind on. I’ve always wanted to do something huge with my life, and what I want to do that’s big is in music. I’ve realized that I can reach those dreams, and I’m not gonna stop trying until I do.”

Sire Castro – My Vest

Sire Castro drops hot new track ‘My Vest’ just in time for New Year

BRONX, NY – If you were to Google the name Sire Castro, you’d likely find stories about a  very controversial battle rap with another up-and-coming rapper about a decade ago that took place in New York City in front of Sean Diddy Combs and the Bad Boy staff. There’s footage all over the Internet of that battle, and Castro became an overnight name because of that one event. But he isn’t an artist who can be encapsulated in just one moment. In fact, he’s a successful musician who has been producing hit after hit for more than just the past 10 years. Like his namesake, Fidel Castro, he’s taking the music scene by storm and impacting an entire country.

Today, Sire Castro is launching a new single called “My Vest.” It’s a remake of the 1989 single “Too Hype” by the group In Touch – a song that was huge back in its day. Castro said he’s tapping into that success and using it to turn the song into a street version of the popular track.

“It’s a throw-back to a song that was hype back in the days, but I’m re-inventing it all over again,” he said. “My versatility and delivery set me apart from anyone else out there. The tone of my voice, also.  I want to be known for having a distinctive sound. Half these rappers today sound the same, but my style is different and I don’t want to sound the same as anyone else. That’s why I took the name Sire Castro – Sire means ‘You’re majesty,’ and Castro was the old king of Cuba who nobody messed with. Nobody dared to test him, and he impacted an entire country. That’s what my music is about.”

Castro said he first started being interested in rap when he was only 5 or 6 years old. His father was a DJ and loved music, and Castro grew up with that environment and influence. At age 8 he saw the classic hip-hop film “Krush Groove,” and a flame was sparked. Not long after he dominated at a fifth grade talent show with an original rap, and from that moment forward he never looked back. He credits legends such as Notorious BIG and Jay-Z for influencing much of his career, and he prides himself in paying homage to the styles of the old-school rappers and bridging the gap from those legends to the modern-day sounds that are popular across the country.

Over the course of his career he has dropped hits such as “Gem Em Cash,” “A Week Ago,” and “18 Wheeler.” He has also collaborated with some big name sin the game, including: Jadakiss, Styles P, Queen Patra, AZ, French Montana, Cory Gunz, and RIP Stack Bundles. He has performed on the notorious SOB’s stage in New York, and has toured in other states such as California, Miami, North Carolina, Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Atlanta.

This South Bronx lyrical assassin said he plans to continue his streak of hits with “My Vest,” and aims to use the success of that single as momentum going into the album he’s currently working on and which will release mid-year 2019.

Emacc, CEO of Emacculent Entertainment Talks Music, Business, & Hollywood @Emacculent_Ent

Eric D. Harris, known in the music and entertainment industry as Emacc, announces the launch of his record label Emacculent Entertainment. Since a child Emacc had aspirations to become a successful business man in Hollywood.

“There was something about the whole lifestyle, the places, the personalities, and even down to the Hollywood scandals”

He got his first taste of the scene when an agent picked him up for modeling and acting, that led to national commercials with major brands like Nike and Reebok. Growing up in the rough surroundings of Long Beach, California, Emacc developed a plan to show off and bring to the forefront the talent of so many of other brothers and sisters in the same environment.

With years of gained knowledge from mentors, major artists and actors, and other entrepreneurs in the music and entertainment industry Emacc declared his new status as CEO of Emacculent Entertainment.

To date Emacc will be starring in a film called 7th & Westlake with major Hollywood Actor Rick Hard, co-stars Micah Fitzgerald, Omar Gooding, Rick Ross, Samuel Monroe Jr., and more. Be on the lookout for his first compilation album “Emacculent Compilation Volume 1” which features major artists such as Snoop Dog, AD, Chris Brown, OG Suicide, and Micah Fitzgerald who is Hollywood’s leading actor! The compilation also includes first signed rapper on Emacculent Entertainment, K.TWO.

MJ: Your resume and accolades speak for themselves!  Looking back on that little boy who had big dreams to make it in Hollywood, what would you say to him now?

EMACC: I would say, God gave everyone a special gift, and it’s up to us to use those gifts to our advantage. Have confidence and believe in yourself, never give up until the race is over.

MJ: Giving back is key when we mention Hip Hop and the culture. However, we also know how the business can be. Why was is so important for you to showcase the talent of up and coming artists?

EMACC: It’s simply the right thing to do. I wanted to give artists the opportunity to live out their dreams and to open the door to our broken society, and in time fix the problems. What someone else has attempted to destroy I’m here to rebuild.

MJ: Your first signed rapper is K.TWO. Tell everyone a little bit about him, why he was chosen to represent Emacculent Entertainment, and what projects he has going on.

EMACC: K.TWO is actually an artist I help raise. I wrote his first rap for him when he was 7-years old. That’s when I discovered he had skills. I know he will be able to shine in the music industry. It’s his time to secure the bag. We have a few new projects we are working on. We have some big features ready to bless his new album and he’s also working on a new mix tape with the help of some mega producers in the industry. I must say it’s a blessing to be where we are, and I’m eager to see where we go with the guidance of God!

MJ: Talk about the label. Will Emacculent Entertainment be limited to artists only?

EMACC: Absolutely not!  I want to be involved with anything under the umbrella of entertainment. I want to display talent and also give the people what they want and demand especially when it comes to down to music or putting on a dynamic show. I am working everyday around the clock to create artist’s opportunities to show off their talents and shine.

MJ: Without giving too much away, what can listeners expect from volume 1 of the “Emacculent Compilation”?

EMACC: A universal sound with a mixture of Hip-Hop, Rap, R&B, Pop, Trap, Rock, and Latin.  We display a collaboration of sound’s and cultures. I will make history with this album and my label.

MJ: To make it in Hollywood you have to wear many different hats, entrepreneur being the biggest! Do you have a preference over acting, business man, modeling, and talent scouting?

EMACC: I was told I am the “Moses” of my family.  I’m here to lead and help artists grow, so my preference is I like helping people I realize I am here to help other individuals. I believe we are all King’s and Queens.

MJ: As we wrap up, is there anything else you would like Hollywood and the world to know about yourself and Emacculent Entertainment?

EMACC:  Be on the lookout for Emacculent Ent. Because we are coming to claim our stake!
