#NeVideo Kinfolk Kollab – Where You From @kinfolkkollab

With Northside Vegas on their shoulders, Kinfolk Kollab deliver their g-funk themed anthem, “Where You From”. The song also entices listeners to rep their city while indulging in a little liquor and smoke.

Consisting of K.A.T.O. and Jamel Deon, the newly formed duo Kinfolk Kollab aim to bring the funky West Coast sound that erupted heavily in the early nineties into modern times. The fellas showcased this motive and much more on their recently released, self-titled mixtape. It features “Where You From”, one of the project’s standout singles. So standout in fact that they reached out to filmographer Amine Tanzi to deliver an official video to back it. The video finds Kinfolk Kollab posted up with their people, giving viewers a glimpse into a day in the life on set. Bottles of Henny are flowing, blunts are blazing away and brutal bars are being served up for close to four minutes.

The instrumental was crafted by Moshuun, who is a producer favorite of the crew. He uses a classic piano sound with g-synths and xylophones encapsulating the funk movement. This of course brings out the best of both artists. K.A.T.O. kicks things off hard, speaking about the cold Vegas streets.

“so many niggas wanna see me gone / you playa haters is wishing I’m all alone or catch me on my own / never stop on the wrong side, know why? / on the west side, be dead bodies on road side”.

Jamel Deon handles hook duties, giving the song it’s potent party vibe in three steps, “it goes 1 for the Henny / 2 for the hoes / 3 for the blunt wrap with the hydro”. When he moves into verse mode, Deon gives the “Where Your From” theme a more national view as K.A.T.O. served a first person POV of North Vegas. The tail end of the single finds KK rhyming in a back and forth rap rhythm that showcases their strong musical chemistry. View the official video for “Where You From” up above. Then scroll down under to listen to their debut, self-titled mixtape.

#NewMusic Jamel Deon – The Breather @Jamel_Deon

Jamel Deon makes his climatic return to the music scene to debut “The Breather”, a brutal bar-for-bar verbal assault

Also known as The Pen Prodigy, the gifted emcee manhandles the daylights out of an eerie piano laced production, courtesy of frequent producer collaborator, Moshunn. The Las Vegas native’s sound on the single is what one can describe as “East meets West”. The keys are reminiscent of “Name Ya Poison”, a song from Mobb Deep’s 1999 album entitled “Murda Muzik”, featuring Cormega. Deon’s rhyme cadence and overall delivery are dead serious as he cuts thru the instrumental like a hot knife thru butter.

Straight out the gate, he aims to assassinate the paper with his deadly pen game with lines such as, “thirty-six hundred seconds then loop the time, ring the alarm early birds hop in the coup and grind, wake the worms, add pressure on the peasants, no breathers or suppresents” . Then for over three minutes straight, The Pen Prodigy swings away with his verbal sword with no mercy, slaying anything that stands in his way.

It has been awhile since we’ve heard from the young riser since his last solo effort, the “No Hooks” mixtape that found him jacking some of his most favored Hip Hop beats from the Likes of Jeezy, Jay-Z and Nas. With a new found hunger and mindset, the Grand Canyon University graduate has leveled up with “The Breather”. If this is any indication of what to expect from Jamel’s forthcoming releases, we’re in for something quite special. Rumor has it that he is working on a new project code named “Hustle With Me”. Stay tuned for updates pertaining to this and much more via Jamel Deon’s official website, www.jamelpenprodigy.com.

Exclusive Interview: @monsterguild Speaks With Rap Music Promo

1. Introduce yourself and how you got started in the entertainment business.

My name is Devon Brabham, but often referred to as the Ghost. I started in the industry, ironically as a “Ghost Writer” when I was 12 years old. Being from Las Vegas, there were few opportunities for aspiring writers and artists when I was growing up. I wrote my first rhyme for a lot of the world’s favorite artists’ both in the hip hop genre, R&B, and even in the gospel sector. I met a lot of A&R’s and music executives at an early age, who helped strengthen and increase my music IQ before I went to college.

2. What was your first job like when you finally got your start?

My first job in the industry was filing contracts. I didn’t know anything about the percentages and or what the words meant, but I was determined to learn. I wrote down every word I didn’t know and went home and looked it up in the dictionary. I became addicted to learning how the entire process came about. Basically, I was hungry to learn.

3. What’s been your favorite project or task thus far?

My favorite project I have done, is the Year of The Monster 2, which I executive produced. It’s a great collective of some of my favorite independent artists and some of my major artist friends. I really dug deep inside myself to put out a collective mixtape that all fans from any genre will enjoy. My favorite task that I have had the joy to be a part of has been the recruiting when I was with an A&R with Indie Music Factory/Ingrooves/Universal Music Group. I really enjoyed the entire process, and it helped increase my industry IQ and carve out my credentials as an industry professional.

4. Give us the most challenging part of your role and the easiest.

The most challenging part of being a manager of artists is finding a way to get the artists to listen and provide content. Artists sometime get the conception that a manager must invest in his or her artists and do everything but record the famous track. This is the hardest fallacy to overcome. The easiest part of the job is building the brand for the artist. A lot of people may think that this is the hardest, but it is the easiest part of the artist-manager relationship.

5. What are some of the biggest differences in the industry now from when you started?

One of the biggest differences is the industry is primarily digital. The industry has changed so much because it has so many shortcuts to get artists exposure. The internet has provided an advantage and a disadvantage. The artists are given so many shortcuts to get them to where they want to be. The artists are causing themselves a disadvantage because the fan engagement is lost. When I started the artists were made to work the streets, vendors, barbershops, shopping malls, and many more avenues to build their fanbase of new listeners.

6. Why can having a great team benefit a new or established artist?

There are so many nuisances that go into the daily success of an artist, having a developed and knowledgeable team can catapult the new artist, and sustain the established artist for many years to come. A team can protect an artist from the pitfalls of the industry.

7. For those dreaming of making a living from this industry, what advice could you provide?

Be humble, be prepared, and above all be mindful of your character. Your character must remain even through your growth within the industry. Finding a mentor, a PR, a publicist, a social media marketing team, a booking agent, and a road manager are among all the necessary things that is needed for an artist to be successful. More than anything else, these things are not free, and that fact is one of the major reasons some young artists fail.
