[Video] Elektrohorse ‘Po Folk X-Mas’

Produced by Elektrohorse from Chicago/California, “ Po Folk X-MAS”, is a heavy hearted Christmas song that rings true for many. Highlighting a not so glamorous Christmas.

Everywhere you look you see breathtaking Christmas lights, beautiful decorated reefs and joyous shoppers filled with holiday cheer. The air smells of freshly baked cookies and is filled with sounds of jingles, bells and familiar toons. With all this holiday bliss, it can be easy to forget that Santa won’t be making a stop down everyone’s chimney.

Hundreds of children around the world will be wondering why Santa forgot them?

Country music Dj Elektrohorse has a new holiday jam “Po Folk Xmas”. This is the untold story that actually shows you how messed up Santa truly is to less fortunate people. He is also assisted by hick hop artist Apalachee Don from Georgia, Terell Skreetzz from Sc and Babe Animal from Ga. Elektrohorse is signed to Create music, the same label as Marshmello.

Apalachee Don, from Monroe Georgia, has the first verse. Pointing all four fingers at Mr. Clause, blaming him for a shitty Christmas with the lyrics, “Mr. Ho Ho Ho trying to stop my fun”.

Vocalist, Babe Animal from Atlanta Georgia, continues to set the tone with the heart breaking hook “I hope, I hope, I hope, Santa show love to the Po Folks”.

Rapper Terell Skreetzz of Spantanburg, South Carolina, uses clever puns to paint a vivid picture. His lyrics emphasize how Christmas looks entirely different for families that are less fortunate.

This Christmas anthem is a clever reminder that for families struggling to make ends meet, the magic of Christmas is more of a thorn in your side than a time of celebration. Terell Skreetzz does a great job highlighting the lack of magic and wonder for Po Folks on Christmas with lyrics such as “In the hood I ain’t never seen a reindeer’” and asking Sana,” is the ghetto on your shitlist”.

If Santa skips your house this year, just know you are not alone

[Video] @WavyBanx ‘My Fault’

Eric Johnson, also known as Wavy Banx is a Greensboro, North Carolina native currently residing in Atlanta, GA.

After graduating from college in North Carolina, Banx wasn’t surrounded around much motivation. Many of his childhood friends either turned to drugs or the streets, so Banx had to make a decision on the type of person who he wanted to become.

Isolating himself, he began to pursue and practice music as a way to channel his frustrations. Many people who graduated knew what they wanted to do, but it just wasn’t the same for Banx. Music opened up another avenue for him to express himself.

He practiced the craft by taking up freestyling and other styles of music. He also found lots of inspiration from his childhood when his dad would send him CDs to listen to while he was deployed. Fast-forward, Banx has released a few singles to the public and plans to release more music and videos to garner the attention of industry heads.

When asked about his inspiration, he says he’s inspired by many artists but most importantly, Lil Wayne, Tupac, and Juicy J. Versatility is important to Banx, so he says he loves to create music that can put you into various moods. He plans to release his first project “Rachet and Rewarding” and also plans to roll-out more content for his growing fanbase.

“This year, I’m going to make people feel me.  Just watch.

[Video] @OfficialJonB ‘Priceless’

Veteran singer Jon B. has been a bit quiet on the new music front since releasing his standout single “Understand” with Donell Jones earlier this year. The song was an extremely successful return single and really maxed out the anticipation for a long awaited new album.

jonb2

The singer has now returned with another new single called “Priceless”. He shared a preview of the song and video on his official Instagram account which you can watch below. The song and video was released in full on his birthday today, November 11th.

Although we can only hear a small portion of the song, it certainly has that Jon B. trademark swagg on it we’ve become accustomed to over the years. Now, the wait is really on not only for the new single, but for the new album.

In case you missed it, in a recent interview with youknowitgotsoul.com’s website, he discussed his single with Donell Jones, when to expect a new album, and much more.

From the video, we can see that our boy is on point, with hooks that thrill, this track, like so many of his past, will make the floors move in many a dance clubs. Jon B’s Priceless is just that.

[Single] Yasmin Ray “Dreams”

Yasmin Ray was born & raised in Vancouver, BC has had stardom in her stars since day one.

Completely independent and determined, she traveled to Atlanta to work with top shelf producers to craft her vision.

[Video] @ITSYABOYJC ‘Way Too Much (Remix) ft. Eric Bellinger

JC is a up-and-coming artist coming out of Atlanta. The new artist takes a trip to the West Coast to find his big break and discovers it with award-winning singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger on the new single, “Way Too Much”.

In the Stacking Memories-directed, JC and Easy find inspiration at the beach on a hot Summer day. The two play it cool beside the waves as ladies flock to them and their smooth mid-tempo hit. JC is an undeniable charmer that will be a hit on the airwaves in no time.

For Justin Crowder, the goal is to make music that people will remember and relate to; invoking an unforgettable feeling. For his more popularly known moniker, JC, it’s about creating real music with a touch of swagg; charisma in the form of a sound recording! Referring to his writing style, he states, “Everything I write is catchy with strong metaphors, fresh concepts, and captivating melodies that stick.” JC is pleasant, humble, quite witty and even a little shy at times. He lacks arrogance, yet embodies character built confidence. But one thing stands above all these traits…JC is a STAR!

This baby-faced, multi-platinum singer/songwriter has many colorful tales surrounding his entry into the business….common, yet, vividly unusual stories of death threats, being cheated, being broke, and politics that cut his progress short. He has many, “And then…what happen was…” moments, things that should have made him throw in the towel but JC hung on. The Nashville, TN native and Atlanta, GA resident understands that it’s all a part of the process. He was even forced involuntarily to go under the knife for vocal surgery five times! Doctors at the Vanderbilt Voice Center told JC they’d try to recover his “speaking voice” but singing again “probably just wouldn’t happen.” God obviously had another plan in mind because JC’s been crooning just fine. When JC presented a CD of recorded songs to his doctors, they were brought to tears!

JC’s career really began to kick off after the independent release of his first album All of Me, which was a major global success. He would later gut out a passenger van and fill it with his belongings, as he began the short yet seemingly uncertain trek from Nashville to Atlanta. Being shuffled in and out of meetings when he arrived and literally leaving the city’s music industry coveting and speechless at his natural abilities from live shows, writing, and the indie release of “Nobody Gotta Know,” JC was always content with being an “independent” singer/songwriter until “the right deal” presented itself. As a driven entrepreneur, JC plans to continue showcasing his music and catapult his career even further with his company No.2 Pencil Muzik, LLC which concentrates on songwriting, producer management, vocal production, and artist development aspects of the industry.

JC has further made his mark in the music industry as a songwriter and vocal producer, developing several artists & producers. And he’s created a demand for himself from a surplus of major music companies by being such a successful global artist independently. He frequently collaborates with Grammy award-winning, platinum-selling producers Keyzbaby, Cheeze Beatz, and Dirty Rice along with up and coming producers Bridgez, Tad Beatz, and Tony Rozay.

JC has managed to work with some of music’s heaviest hitters: Diddy, Future, T.I., Rick Ross, Wyclef, Bangladesh, Zaytoveen, and Brian Michael Cox (to name a few) and sharing the stage with Chris Brown, Migos, Usher, Lil Wayne, and many more; performing at everything from school pep rallies to radio station/community events to major concerts, including Atlanta’s largest show: Birthday Bash. In November 2011, JC signed an agreement with Star Base/P-Vine Records in Japan to release a series of musical compositions abroad.

He showcased his giftedness with the release of his album ENCORE, which peaked at No.3 on the Japanese R&B album charts and astoundingly features 8 songs that charted on the Top 100 R&B Songs chart, the most popular being Hwy 2 Luv which peaked at No. 5. JC also released an album entitled EARCANDY in 2011 and a digital EP entitled ENCORE in 2012, which were both very successful and escorted by international tours. In March of 2013, JC released a classic joint album with KeChelle entitled FOREVER. It was yet another successful global indie release; it peaked at No.5 on the Japanese R&B charts and reached thousands of sales in the U.S. & abroad. He also released several singles in Germany that all charted on their Top 10 Urban Charts: Say U Scared (w/ Tyro), Cheers To Us (w/ DJ T.O), Attention (w/ DJ Santo-T), and Hands On You (w/ DJ Belay). All of these projects were released independently and were successful with practically no major promotion or budget.

He plans to capitalize on his new partnerships with Elation Entertainment, Heard Well, Onepeace Inc. (Japan), Bonaphied Ent., and major distributors by independently touring and releasing new music internationally throughout 2019. However, JC has recently released a couple of new indie singles, Bounce, Shamone, and Way Too Much that have been very well-received! *His upcoming singles Way Too Much (feat. Eric Bellinger) and No Filter (feat. Jacquees) are in high demand after posting teasers online!

What separates the singer/songwriter from the droves of R&B hopefuls is he didn’t have to choose this path. Though he has been belting gospel classics professionally since he was 9, JC graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tennessee State University with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration, followed by a Master’s in Education with a highly impressive 4.0 GPA and was teaching high school as Mr. Crowder by day and exploiting his creative talents as JC by night. JC utters, “A plan B is great but music is my heart.”

“You just don’t understand what I’ve been through,” he says tiredly. “But I’ve never possessed the energy to give up doing what I love, despite being called a fool. I’m at a place in my career where my fulfillment comes from knowing I’m doing this Independently and still being successful both musically and financially, having fun, seeing the world, and making good music.”

Where sex and scandal ravage through the airwaves, JC offers sensuality and feeling, and at times his music can merely be described as just “cool.” His music is littered with hidden meanings and innuendos, but it’s always backed with chart topping production and the components that hit songs are made of. His boyish good looks don’t make it hard for his fans to fall in love on sight, but it’s his ability to regurgitate his soul on wax that will cement his position and make him truly UNFORGETTABLE.
