Troy Remedy – Which Way To Go

New single from Texas native Troy Remedy examines feelings of doubt and confusion during life’s storms

DALLAS, TX – In life, sometimes there are crossroads that seem impossible to choose a proper course to move forward. Doubt and confusion can creep in during those moments which can be overwhelming, but there’s always a way forward even when it’s hard to know which way to go.

That’s the emotion that hip hop artist Troy Remedy perfectly captures with his new single “Which Way to Go.” Currently streaming on all digital platforms and with a new music video available on his YouTube channel, the song is a snapshot into his life at the moment and the emotions that come with it – something he said people all over the world will likely be able to relate to.

“Sometimes, life throws you into a storm you’re not ready for and you have to figure out how to get out of it,” Troy said. “That’s how I’m living right now. Every decision counts. I’m trying to figure out which way to go and where I’m headed in the future. At the same time, I have to keep moving and make a decision and not just contemplate. I think that’s something a lot of people experience at some point in their lives.”

The song has a laid-back vibe, Troy said, with prominent guitar solos right after the hook and toward the end. That’s paired with Troy’s standout flow and rhymes that listeners can’t help but be hooked by. The end result is a song that is both mellow and hits you right in the gut.

“As an artist, I’m always evolving and trying to perfect the craft,” Troy said. “Where I am now compared to when I started, I think is someone who is more confident in his skills and understanding what I’m capable of. Wasn’t too sure if I was going to be able to pursue these aspirations long term but now I know it’s something I can take control of. As far as music is concerned, this song hits harder than the rest. It’s a dope summer jam that resonates especially with the recent violence and building tension that’s been taking place in Dallas, Austin and across America.  It’s a song that resonates with people who have been affected by those kinds of things.”

The music video for the single embraces that feeling of confusion and not knowing which way to go by capturing Troy roaming the streets of Austin and Dallas – in and out of alleyways and busy roads, trying to find his way to the right path.

“It takes you into that feeling of when you’re in your own head and trying to figure out where you need to be in life,” he said.

Troy will be performing around Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston throughout the summer while also developing more music that he plans to release later this year.

KollegeKado – Money Talks

Standout college athlete makes waves in music industry with unique sound and style

VENTURA, CA – Though Kado Brown is probably best known across the U.S. as a standout college athlete, his deeper passion is music. Flying under the radar for much of his youth, this Georgia Southern quarterback announced his arrival on the music scene with an explosion when his 2018 stadium anthem “Swag Like Chad” was embraced by ESPN and signed to a sync license through 2020. Inspired by first-year head coach Chad Lunsford, the single has been championed by more than just the fans of Georgia Southern but also by music lovers and fans of college athletics all over the world. But those initial fans of Kollege’s – first at Moorpark College and then at Georgia Southern – hold a special place in his heart.

“How they supported my music was huge,” he said. “Without their support, I wouldn’t have had as much success and I can’t thank them enough for that. It’s because of that I’ve been blessed enough to get opportunities to perform and open for some big name artists like Problem, Playboi Carti, Famous Dex, and Rich The Kid.”

Scheduled to graduate with his four-year degree this summer, KollegeKado is ready to take his early success as an artist to the next level. He’s releasing a new EP called “Dirty Gold Saturn” which takes advantage of the momentum he created with “Swag Like Chad” by offering six new “turn up vibes.” With production from notorious sound smith Yung Henny, this trap-forward production will “put some holes in the roof,” Kollege said.

“There are some tears in there too, but it runs good and will do the job of keeping people turned up for certain occasions,” he said. “It’s a project about manifestations and life experiences and trying to speak things into existence. It’s about having fun as well. One of the things I take pride in with my music is having a broad sound. With this project, I have that trap, turn-up sound but some of my earlier work has conscious sounds with more stories and things that were more personal to me. I also make music that is celebratory and braggadocios. I’m getting ready to explore some R&B vibes later this year.”

The debut single from “Dirty Gold Saturn” is a song called “Money Talks.” Kollege said he was first inspired to write the song when he got a handful of beats from Yung Henny and this was the first one he liked.

“I knew I needed to write to it because it just had a vibe,” he said. “And the phrase that kept going over and over in my head is something my pops always used to say, ‘Money talks but bullshit walks.’ I wanted to go with that quote. So far, people have related to it and it’s definitely something that will play in the clubs and people can have fun with. It’s not a song that I’m trying to get too conscious with – it’s just something for people to have fun with.”

That being said, ultimately, KollegeKado said he wants his music to inspire people to be themselves and take steps into whatever it is they want to do in life.

“I played football which was my foundation for a long time,” he said. “I learned a lot about hard work and effort and hustle, and I have transferred that into my music. I hope that through my music and my story, some people will be inspired.”

Kollege is slated to perform at the Q Club in Oxnard, California on June 9 with another live performance set for June 19 at a location yet to be determined.

Lighta6000 – Been There Done That

Lighta6000 announces his arrival to the music scene with new anthem ‘Been There, Done That’

CHICAGO, IL – Lighta6000 is a hip hop artist with the kind of pedigree and experience that one would expect comes with superstardom. But this under-the-radar musician who has rubbed shoulders with some of the industry’s greats for many years – such as Diplo, Skrillix, ASAP Rocky and Bankroll Fresh, to name a few – is just starting to get his name out there. With the release of his new single “Been There, Done That”, it’s highly unlikely he’ll continue to go unrecognized.

This first solo project is a powerhouse single that is already making waves throughout the Midwest and should hit East and West Coast audiences soon. Recorded at 2Chains Studio in Atlanta, the single is an anthem for anybody who has ever had to do something that they didn’t want to do. Underneath a pounding club beat, Lighta6000 weaves lyrics that inspire others to embrace their obligations while chasing their dreams.

“That song has a history and a weight to it,” he said. “There were so many big names in the studio when I recorded it. I made it three days before Bankroll Fresh died, and it was the last time he was in that studio. I got locked up for a year about a week after I recorded that song too, so a lot of people who knew about it and had heard it once or twice have been waiting a long time for this song to hit the streets. It’s the perfect first song for me to release but I already have five more singles and three mixtapes in the works yet to come later this year.”

Though his home base is in Chicago, Lighta6000 has been building an audience in Atlanta and other parts of the Deep South as well. His name derives from a nickname he got from friends in school during his high school years. He recalls making a fashion statement with his wardrobe during those teenage years when he would wear bright skinny jeans paired with Chuck Taylors and gold chains every day.

“People started calling me Highlighter,” he said. “Every day, I was wearing bright green or yellow or white or pink pants with the gold chain every time. I also started rapping a lot during that time and so people would always refer to me as Highlighter. When I got serious about my music, I decided to keep ‘Lighta’ but I wanted to put some numbers on it like Andre3000. My goal is to be three times more successful than what he was so I added ‘6000’. Plus, that shows the level of quality I’m gonna bring with my music. Lighta6000 is full force. It’s the ultimate number. And it shows people that I’m going to Live Ill and Go Hard Til Absent.”

King Wess – Stop Dreamin

King Wess shares ‘good car vibes’ with new EP ‘Highway 101’

PORTLAND, OR – King Wess has always had a dream of moving to Los Angeles and making it big as an artist. It’s something he’s had in his head for as long as he can remember. When he was old enough, he took the drive along Highway 101 from Portland, Oregon to LA to visit the city and get a feel for what it would take to realize his dream. That one trip changed his life and put a fire in his heart that will be impossible to quench.

After returning from that trip in 2017, he spent nine straight months in the studio developing a unique sound and style that he could offer to the world. His first song “Touched” was a hit, and he hasn’t looked back since. And now he’s ready to release the fruit of his labors to the world through an eight-song EP he’s calling “Highway 101.”

“It’s a project inspired by the vibe I got driving from Portland to LA,” he said. “It’s one of those EPs that just give you those good driving vibes. It has smooth vibes sprinkled in with a couple of up-tempo head-boppers. That being said, I really think my music is different all around. I’m not too conscious with my lyrics and bore people, but I’m also not too simple. And I have singing abilities that a lot of other people don’t. I also touch really well on all aspects of hip-hop in a real organic kind of way.”

King Wess said he has always had a knack for music and was pretty good with poetry and writing while he was a younger student. He attributes his love for music to his mother who would also drive in the car with him listening to all kinds of old-school music. His father also introduced him to diverse genres of music – especially country. But as he grew older, his biggest musical inspirations where Nipsy Hustle, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and J.Cole, who he admits has probably had the biggest impact on his own personal style.

At the end of the day, King Wess said he hopes to make music that can be soothing to anybody – young and old. He tells stories from the things of life that he had experienced and hopes that those things will relate with others.

“I make music that’s for everybody,” he said. “I’m not too stuck in certain areas and every project I put out will have songs for everybody across all kinds of genres. A lot of different stuff on this EP shows that off, and people can see my progressions and the things I can do.”

King Wess said he’s just getting started on his career and that people can expect to get more music from him later this year. To listen to his music or to follow him on social media, please visit:

Heuse – Wasteland

Indian artist fuses genres to create original new sounds

NEW DELHI, INDIA – One of the hottest new sounds in music today is coming out of one of the most populous countries in the world, and it’s coming from 22-year-old powerhouse Nakul Pai. Operating under the stage name Heuse, this New Delhi native is creating such unique sounds that he’s quickly becoming one of the most sought-after producers in the world and his new single “Wasteland,” which features NCS-artist Joseph Feinstein aka NUVILICES, is beginning to make major waves.

Like many artists, Heuse got his start as a young kid when at age 9 he picked up the guitar and found that he had a natural ability to learn music quickly. By his mid-teens, he had started learning other instruments, particularly keyboard, but came back to guitar by age 16. He remembers keenly one day when a friend told him about producing software that would allow him to control any sound he wanted. And when he began to experiment with production, it unlocked oceans of potential that he said he’s never looked back from since.

“I just try to portray what’s in my mind and I love that production lets you be in control of everything,” he said. “I try to make my own sounds and melodies from scratch. I guess that’s what makes me feel better. Anything can inspire me. If something happens during the day or there’s a song that I hear, or even the food I eat sometimes will inspire me. And when inspiration strikes, I have to go with it. There have been nights when I don’t even sleep because I love to process and sleep is like wasting time.”

Heuse said he’s never been interested in putting his face out there to the world and would prefer to let his music speak for itself. And he’s thrilled that the good music he’s creating is being embraced by so many others around the world – especially the ones that he considers to be “experimental” in their boundary-pushing new sounds and styles.

“Some songs connect in seconds and some don’t connect at all,” he said. “I’m trying to fuse genres in a lot of ways. Sometimes, I get really dark and put the guitar in it. Other times, I feel really inspired by soft things. That inspiration helps me make music with different kinds of moods, and I love the process of getting it out of my mind and sharing it with other people.”

To date, Heuse has released more than 60 individual tracks for multiple labels, including NCS, Warner Brothers, Sony ATV, Riotville and more. And he’s preparing to drop another single called “Broken Boombox” on April 25th.

Siciliano – Replay

Italian-American rapper Siciliano pays homage
to heritage with new album ‘Sunday Dinner’

RICHMOND, VA – Traditions and heritage are extremely important to Anthony Simonetti. Growing up in The Bronx among an Italian-American family, he remembers keenly the things that his friends and family would do that were homage to his Italian heritage. One of his fondest memories and something which he still participates in today is Sunday Dinner – the time every week when friends and family gather around the dinner table to share a good meal while connecting with one another. It’s one of those quintessential traditions that people all over the world can point to as a marker of the Italian heritage.

As a musician, Simonetti – who goes by the stage name Siciliano – wants to capture the emotions that come from moments like that and celebrate the elements of his Italian heritage that he loves and for which he is so proud. But unlike many from within the Italian population, he’s choosing to do it with hip-hop music.

“My whole heritage means everything to me, but hip-hop wasn’t a huge part of that type of community where I grew up,” he said. “But growing up in The Bronx, it is impossible not to hear rap music. It was something that was always around me, even in the very Italian area of The Bronx where I grew up. There were a lot of rappers coming from The Bronx and making it big and that drew my attention. When I started learning that there were people not far from where I grew up who were making it and repping who they are and their people, I knew it was something I also wanted to do for Italians. That’s when I started making my own certain rhyming scheme that’s kind of a mix-and-match style.”

That unique sound and style is displayed perfectly on his new album, “Sunday Dinner.” It’s a project that was born from his desire to capture elements of his heritage and pair it with sounds inspired by some of the greatest musicians along the East Coast. The album features a number of artists from Richmond, and even has two tracks on which Siciliano is more of a feature than the main artist. But bringing people together through music is what he wants to do with his career, not only because he knows it makes for great music but also because it’s a nod to what the Italian tradition is all about.

“That’s what ‘Sunday Dinner’ is all about,” he said. “That’s a huge thing for Italians. And the idea for me as a musician, especially with this album, is to find the best talent out there and bring them to the table. It’s never gonna be just about me. I’m always bringing other people to the table and making it more about good music than about me as an individual.”

The debut single on the album, “Replay,” features producer Keith Blvck who Siciliano said is one of his favorite musicians to work with. It’s a song that the two of them recorded in one studio session in one of those moments where everything comes together easily and “the magic just happens.” It’s a song about living his lifestyle and how the things of life are so good that you want to put them on replay and live them over and over again. A music video for the single is in the works and should drop by May. He’s also working on music videos for the singles “At The Party” and “Too Hard On Em.” Siciliano also said there’s a potential for a smaller EP to drop later this year but right now, he’s focusing on promoting “Sunday Dinner” and showing off his unique skills to the world.

D-Roc – Bankhead Bounce

Ying Yang Twins member D-Roc
drops solo dance anthem ‘Bankhead Bounce’

ATLANTA, GA – Back before D-Roc became a famous member of the hip-hop duo Ying Yang Twins, he had a budding solo career. In 1995, toward the beginning of his music career, he released a hit single called “Bankhead Bounce” that gained him accolades and was a hit with his fans. Now 24 years later, D-Roc is releasing an updated version of the song, and it’s quickly becoming one of the hits of the year.

In 1995, the song was a dance anthem that referred to bouncing one’s shoulders. The 2019 version is more directly aimed at women, though it still maintains that upbeat dance vibe that everyone wants to enjoy.

“It’s a twerk song,” D-Roc said. “It’s about bouncing that ass and having a good time. (Doing an updated version of the song) wasn’t anything I really tried to do, I’m just always recording all the time because I have a studio in the basement and when my brother launched his label, 2Lit Records, he asked me for a song. We have a producer that we were about to sign in-house for that label, and he sent me a beat and it just came to me. So it was nothing intentional, it’s just that God works in mysterious ways.”

D-Roc said fans of the Ying Yang Twins will love this single because it captures everything that D-Roc has been about throughout his career. He’s still rapping the person he’s been all these years and isn’t planning on changing who he is. He makes good music and he raps about anything he feels like – if he doesn’t feel it, he’s not going to rap about it. And this song is his way of expressing himself and doing what he loves doing, he said.

“The music we have made really does stand out and stand alone,” he said. “That’s what has had us out here working for so long. We made music that lasts forever, compared to music that’s just for the moment. I’m just trying to keep on making good music and let my fans know we love what we do and this is what we do. I love music. I’m not doing it for a buck. I make legendary songs that last forever.”

D-Roc said “Bankhead Bounce” is the first of many singles he plans to release as a solo artist under the 2Lit Records label. While he has no specific timeline for when those singles will drop, he did say fans can likely expect another single later this year. He’s also busy touring with The Ying Yang Twins “Millennium Tour,” which hit the U.S. this March. Other hip-hop mainstays on the tour include special guests Mario, Lloyd, Pretty Ricky and Chingy. The tour is produced by G-Squared Events in association with Omarion Worldwide, Hall of Fame Entertainment and Blvd. Music.

Rachel Bailey – Pretty

Rachel Bailey offers open invitation to Bae-Gang
with new single ‘Pretty’

DENVER, CO – When people listen to Rachel Bailey’s music, there’s one message she hopes reverberates over and over again: Be yourself!

That single mantra is the backbone for Bailey’s music. And as more and more people join her “Bae-Gang,” that message of self-empowerment is growing like wildfire. Her new single “Pretty” is the perfect example of this. Serving as an anthem “for the ladies,” Bailey originally wrote it thinking she would mock the word “pretty.” But as the song developed, it became more of a song that empowers other women.

“There are a lot of men out there who will use the term ‘pretty’ as something that’s less-of or stupid or dumb,” Bailey said. “I say I’m pretty but I’m with the shit. You can think I’m no big deal, but I’m actually in this to win this. That’s what I was going for with the song. It’s for the ladies to have that confidence. There have been a lot of times where I’ve been insulted by being resigned to just beauty. As women, we’re not just pretty, we’re powerful.”

The song combines elements of R&B and hip-hop in an upbeat way that Bailey said will make people want to nod their heads. It also captures her unique sound and style, which is a combination of her multiple influences and the originality she’s developed over the years. What’s more, Bailey puts her film skills on display with the music video for the single, which she wrote and directed.

Bailey has been around music her entire life. Her father – who was in the military and moved his family all over the world – was a musician who once toured in Europe and brought his music back to the U.S. Because of his time in the military, however, he couldn’t take his music all the places that he wanted to.

While music was always in the hoe, it wasn’t until her teenage years that Bailey said music became something she was serious about. Bailey said she found salvation through music at age 13 when she went through a traumatic experience.

“I was in such a dark place at age 13 that I tried to commit suicide,” she said. “I got help and therapy, and my therapist introduced poems to me. I was told to write exactly how I feel without trying to think about it. So I just went for it and it was a wow moment for me. I hadn’t been able to express myself like that ever. I put my feelings into poetry and it changed my outlook on everything. Then one day, I started singing the poems that I wrote and I haven’t looked back. I’ve been doing it ever since.”

A few years ago, Bailey moved back to Denver, Colorado – a town near where her mother grew up and lived the majority of her life – and has been pursuing music professionally ever since. She said it’s fun to see more people join the Bae-Gang and she hopes to continue to inspire people to embrace their authenticity.

“What I believe in is something anyone can apply to their lives,” she said. “Everyone has something special and unique about themselves. What I want people to get from my music when they hear it is to be themselves. Don’t worry about people judging what you’re saying. Just focus on being you. Live your best life. If what you want to do sounds crazy to everyone else, who cares. Do what you love to do. That’s what it means to be part of the Bae-Gang – to be an example for other people to chase their dreams and shoot for the stars.”
