🔥Playboy Ronnie Is Serving Up The Heat for A HOT Summer 🔥
Currently pushing two new projects, Playboy Ronnie returns with a slew of hits in the bag. He continues to build on his momentum with the release of two new projects.
It’s been a few months since we’ve heard from the Orlando homie Playboy Ronnie. Its always a special event when he sends over new material to review. Last time we ran across each other he sent over “Hard Enough” which now has more than 10K streams and growing on Sound Cloud. This time he sent us not one, but two EP’s, a new single, and an eye catching new video for yet another single.
Both EP’s titled “Say Less” and “Say More” feature 5 tracks each, the main singles are “Guns And Butter” and “Mercy“. Its a dope collection of music, the Orlando native taps in and brings the summertime vibes from Florida.
His fans know that his grind, and versatility is unmatched. Playboy Ronnie peels back the layers to reveal himself, and to better connect with his fans. He does this when many of his peers are lacking substance and quality content in their music. Doing this he is able to capture his listener’s who are streaming his music and tuned into his visuals.
I took some time to listen to both projects. I hear a distinct difference between these projects when I sat back and tuned in. Playboy Ronnie is a talented artist who deserves more attention from the people, I believe once his music reaches a mainstream audience his fan base will grow with speed and efficiency, then its take-off time for him. Fly high young home fly high.
For now stream both projects, let us know which one you like the best! Social media info is below!

Richie Carter shares real pain of loss with new single “I’m Sad”
ROCKFORD, IL – Richie Carter’s haunting single, “I’m Sad” is from the six-track EP of the first songs written after Richie’s mother passed away unexpectedly. After inheriting money, Richie blew a lot of it. Making some bad decisions, he found himself getting into trouble for the same things that upset his mother before she passed away.
Richie released two EPs at the same time, like an A-Side / B-Side release in the style of an R&B album. A combination of R&B and Rap, each six song collection has its own theme. The “Too Much Whiskey” EP contains “I’m Sad” which Richie describes as sounding like Lil Peep meets Mac Miller. A “self-loathing song,” it is relevant for today’s audience because it’s openly sad and demonstrates the ability to understand and accept what makes a person sad, instead of trying to run or hide from the feeling.
The opening track of “I’m Sad” serves as the first stepping stone of the sorrow and harsh reality that money can’t replace a life, progressing towards the last track, “Too Much Whiskey.” While recording the last track, Richie had to stop recording several times because of his emotional state. The artist is very honest, trying to do everything through his music. The creation process is therapeutic and helps him to see his situation from a different perspective.
The “Sappy Hour” EP was born out of a long distance relationship which began after his mother passed away and has since resulted in his engagement! The six songs on this EP were written for the woman who is now his fiancée.
Both EPs were illustrated by Xclusive Illustration. They were recorded in a little basement studio in Rockford, IL that Richie has been using for over a decade. He has recorded in big studios in Los Angeles and Chicago, but Richie will tell you that Rockford’s engineer, Neal Howard, is one of the best. When he was 17 years old, Richie found Neal and has been working with him ever since. J Caspersen is the producer for the entire project.
A rambunctious and curious person, Richie cultivates his curiosity and tries to engage in anything that he is curious about. He feels this has much to do with the bold and open quality of his music which makes it more relatable.
Richie wants everyone to know that it pays to be patient and to keep trying. “A lot of people get the perception that they need to be at a certain place at a certain time,” says Richie, who used to write a school newspaper piece called “Direction Over Destination.” “Don’t worry so much about where you end up at. Just try to go in the right direction of what you really want to do and you’ll find something in that path. Just follow your heart and do what you want to do. Don’t expect to be exactly what you want to be. But you’re gonna find something you enjoy doing if you just go down the path that you enjoy walking.”

BTG brothers overcome political persecution, assassination attempts – share story on new video game and album ‘PYROHYDRO’
COLUMBUS, OH – When C Los and his cousin SOG (Soldier Of God) tell you that their group BTG is going to make national headlines, they’re not just flapping their lips or trying to get social media views by shocking the public. They’re going to shock the public with the truth which they’re presenting in compelling ways. One part music, one part video game, one part self-help book and multiple parts entertainment, their multimedia approach to sharing their truth with the world is just getting ramped up. And it starts with the release of their new album “PYROHYDRO.”
The 21-song album is set to release on July 4 and tells the story of these two embattled artists as they’ve fought over the past decade to be recognized in the entertainment industry. With backgrounds that come with all the trappings of street life, these two “brothers” have risen from the hardships of their lives to recreate themselves. What once used to represent the Black Triad Gangstas, BTG is now something the duo uses to point to a higher power with “Belonging To God”. And under this new banner, the two are creating things that tell the stories of where they’ve come from – including multiple assassination attempts, broken record deals, legal battles with video game production companies, and hard-living on the streets. But those stories are filled with inspiration for a world looking for hope.
“We’re not religious, we’re spiritual,” said SOG. “We don’t preach, we just talk about spiritual stuff. But that doesn’t mean we don’t know what we’re talking about. You might hear some gangsta stuff in there because we lived it. I was a stickup kid and my brother was a weed man. We’re legitimately street credible dudes. But we both made a vow that we were going to leave it behind, and we have. We know about the street and our story is gonna tell you that, but we’re spiritual and we’re trying to do something positive on top of all that are negative.”
“PYROHYDRO” is a mash of multiple genres that not only introduces the world to BTG’s unique sound and style but also serves as the first chapter of a multimedia story that is continued across the video game “The Art of Life and Death” which is slated to release in 2020. While “PYROHYDRO” tells the story of C Los and SOG, it also begins to describe some of the storylines that players can expect to see in the video game. Self-described as a “Grand Theft Auto meets The God of War” type of game, the two utilize real life experiences within the game’s storyline with music from “PYROHYDRO” laced throughout as a type of soundtrack.
One of the tracks from the album, “Boogyman” is featured prominently in the video game and serves as the hot single from the album. SOG said it was inspired by a dark time in his life when at age 13, he tried to commit suicide. On the other hand, “Top Dog” is the debut single from the same album.
“When I was in the emergency room, two angels showed up,” he said. “In this song, I’m telling the story about how those angels appeared and how having a different spiritual practice has helped me escape five assassination attempts. One attempt in particular I avoided because of my spirituality. And that moment with the angels is something that happens in the video game as well.”
SOG said he has also written a book called “64 Levels of Power” which is also slated to be released in 2020. It, too, fills a role within the multimedia story that BTG is telling.

New EP from Jux Strongarm explores deep currents of American culture and political tensions
ALBANY, NY – A little more than 12 years ago, Daytwaun Minter was on the fast track to superstardom in the world of hip hop. He had been making a name for himself in New York with some of his early work, and that reputation was beginning to spread along the East Coast. He was primed for big things in the music industry. But in late 2007, his life on the street caught up with him and he was arrested for four bank robberies and an attempted robbery of a gun store. While he had the opportunity to trade information on others involved in 14 other robberies for a lesser sentence, he instead chose to keep his mouth shut and accept his full 13-year sentence. In December of 2018, he was released after only 11-and-a-half years in New York State prisons. In the months since, he has been dedicating himself to his music and picking up where he left off before prison.
Nodding to his past but pointing to the future, the artist now known as Jux Strongarm makes gangsta music that’s fused with conscious and political rap in ways that no one else out there is doing within the industry. His six-song EP “My Fellow American” is due out on July 5 and puts that unique sound and style on full display. With a blend of conscious songs, club songs and hard-hitting gangsta songs, “My Fellow American” explores a variety of topics that have permeated America’s society over the past decade – from the Black Lives Matter Movement to the protests of NFL players spurred on by the actions of former quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
The debut single from the album is a song called “Gangsta Gangsta.” Jux calls it an upbeat club song for a new generation.
“With this new generation, everybody claims to be tough but nobody is really tough anymore,” he said. “They’re just claiming to be tough. There were rappers prior to the rise of those like Drake who were tough and really got into stuff. Drake said it best that back then people reached for weapons, but now they just reach to sell records. I think if it ain’t gangsta now, it’s never gonna be gangsta. That’s where this generation is headed and that’s what this song is about.”
Jux said the whole premise behind his music is to lean more toward the conscious side of lyrics and force people to think more deeply about things going on around them – all while having a good time with the music.
“I’m definitely talking about gangsta stuff and the consequences of that because I’ve lived it and it’s not fun,” he said. “But that’s just an introduction of who I am as a way to lend credibility to what I’m saying. If you don’t have credibility, people won’t listen to the good stuff you’re talking about and the positivity. Some artists try to come out with political stuff right out of the gate and people don’t pay attention. I’m giving people an introduction and then I’ll talk about the political stuff – like Black Lives Matter and the police shootings that are happenings everywhere. At the same time, I want to entertain. Music is about entertaining. So some of my punchlines are sly and clever underneath all the stuff I’m talking about that are going on in the community.”
“Gangsta Gangsta” is currently available across all streaming platforms with the EP to follow on July 5. Jux said he plans on releasing an LP in November called “Gangster, the Final Frontier” and he’s also going to have a booth at the Capital Center in Albany for the CNYS Black Expo in July to promote his brand.

West Coast artist C Titus drops hot summertime track ‘Yeah’
OAKLAND, CA – A hot new summertime vibe from West Coast artist C Titus is hitting the airwaves, and fans all over the country are hopping on the hype train.
The song is called “Yeah” and it’s the perfect song for the club, for a party, or for just cruising in the car with friends. Once you hear it, “Yeah” immediately becomes part of your daily playlist. With that summertime house party type of feel, it’s a track that can be played any time of year and bring you right back to that summertime vibe. Featuring Black Albert, C Titus’ “Yeah” will hold its place as one of the premier tracks of summer 2019.
“It definitely has that west coast type of vibe to it,” C Titus said. “It’s one of those songs that‘s just fun to play, with a chorus that talks about being a player but with finesse and a hook that will stick in your head for a long time.”
C Titus said one of the things this single showcases is his unique sound and style and his ability to pick the right content to match with the quality beats he selects and develops with his producers. He has a large archive of music that he has made, but not much of it has been released because he believes strongly in quality over quantity. He is constantly working on his music to make it perfect so his audience can feel every note come through their speakers.
“In today’s industry we have a lot of quantity, but not a lot of people are taking pride in quality,” he said. “I’m taking a slow approach with my music. With Dr. Dre and ‘The Chronic,’ he took a slow approach, and he’s one of my idols. So is Nas, who is my favorite rapper. He has always given me wisdom and knowledge through his music and his ability to paint such a clear message with his writing and delivery. It’s the best in the game. That’s why I’m taking his approach. I might sit on a song for a long time and add backgrounds and layers to it over time. It’s art, and with all good art you have to take your time with it and make sure it’s quality. Everyone who listens to my music deserves that quality.”
Born in Oakland, California during an era when drugs and prostitution ruled the inner city neighborhoods, C Titus turned to music to avoid the pitfalls and allure of the streets. His father was also a musician and traveled around the world to tour with his band. C Titus recalls spending hours upon hours in the studio with his father while he recorded music. Additionally, his cousin, Sonny B – a well known producer in Northern California who has produced for Tupac, Too Short and The Delinquents among others – helped inspire C Titus and put him on a path toward success in the music industry. To date, he has managed two projects with fellow artist CHA-Chng and was also part of the West Coast hip hop group Da Famm. He is now stepping back into the spotlight as an independent artist while continuing to run his business.
“I typically talk about the challenges of being a black male trying to overcome the stereotypes as well as the modern other things that the majority can relate to,” he said. “I always avoid the typical way of expressing the message I want to convey, and I create a vibe that people can relate to. My ultimate goal is to create other opportunities for others in the music industry. Business is part of my core values and I will never stray away from opportunities for expansion.”

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.

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.
