YS Lou – Demon

LOS ANGELES, CA – Luis Saavedra’s mother knew he was destined for musical greatness the moment she walked in on him conducting an orchestra that was playing on the television when he was barely old enough to stand on his own. He confirmed that destiny as he grew older, learning every instrument that was put in his hands and displaying a voice that would make any mother proud. Over time he displayed a talent for poetry, as well, and it didn’t take long for his natural giftedness as a musician to pair with his penchant for prose and pretty soon he was writing his own songs and performing them to crowds. Today he’s a professional artist from Southern California who goes by the stage name YS Lou. His first love was jazz – and in fact he attended the University of Central Florida to study jazz and has worked as a freelance jazz musician and music producer all over the east coast. But he also loves hip-hop and in an endeavor to recreate himself, he moved from Orlando to Los Angeles in 2016 to launch a new hip-hop career.

YS Lou released his first single, “No Really,” in May of this year under the stage name Louis. It has seen some good success, and now he’s ready to follow it up with his second single, “Demon.” The new single features a little bit of a darker vibe than its predecessor, though still is dominated by a trap beat. The lyrics are reflective and explore what it means to overcome the demons of one’s past, and then accept the person that those demons have helped to create over time.

“It’s about looking back at the person I used to be compared to the person I am now,” he said. “I’m riding with demons because of the skeletons in my closet that I’m trying to get rid of, as well as face and accept. The things I’ve done have built up to make me who I am as a person and an artist. I was in the streets a few years ago, selling drugs and hanging with people I shouldn’t have. But I also grew up in the church and have been listening to jazz my whole life. So I take influences from all types of genres and moments from my life. The production, arranging and musicality, is something I pay close attention to. I’m deliberate with the sound because I’m a musician above everything. I really pride myself in my attention to detail and being deliberate in my music and my lyrics. I think that’s something the genre desperately needs.”

YS Lou said he wants his music to ultimately be known for inspiring people while having fun. He often thinks to the musicians who have inspired him over the years – such as Kid Cudi or Kanye West – and how they’re always able to bring out the most in their performances. Like those artists, he hopes to create music that will get people moving and “get everybody lit.” “Demon” is the first single off an upcoming mixtape called “Out of Reach,” which he said  should drop later this year. Its nine songs continue the reflection of his life and bring a little bit of everything.

D1 – T.U.T.T

Chicago rapper D1 turns up the temperature with new single ‘T.U.T.T.’

CHICAGO, IL – It’s time to turn of the up the temperature, and that’s exactly what Chicago-based hip-hop artist D1 does with his new single “T.U.T.T.”

The high-energy hype song that’s sweeping through Midwest clubs is the perfect vibe for having fun and jamming out at a party, or even just by yourself in the living room. It’s very upbeat with a catchy hook and a sound that perfectly represents this up-and-coming young artist from one of the country’s best music cities.

“I wanted to have fun with it,” D1 said of the single. “A lot of my music is serious, and when I first finished making this beat I thought I didn’t have a purpose for it. I thought I’d just put it out as a beat and someone else could use it. But the more I listened to it, the more I liked it. I started putting some stuff together for it just to see if I could call it a song. But then I thought of the hook out of nowhere, and I liked it so much that I decided to run with it. After I got the hook, the song pretty much wrote itself. I, of course, wanted to make sure it sounded good as well as being well-made. But then I just had fun with it. And the response from my fans is that it’s different, but in a good way. I’m pretty sure no one has ever heard this sound before – it sounds different, but it’s fun.”

D1 is the kind of artist who embraces that reputation of being different. It’s the foundation for his stage name, in fact. Originally D1 was meant to represent the fact that he’s in his own division – like a Division 1 college athlete. And certainly he said it still reflects that his music is in a class of its own. But he hopes that it has grown larger than that. He wants his music to really shake up the way people think of their lives.

“I want my music to be known for people who aren’t afraid of being out of the box,” he said. “I want it to be fun and funny – like I want you to laugh – but I also want you to relate to it and understand the message behind it. I want it to help you heal, or to be inspired or motivated, but through all of it, to have fun. I’m a funny person and my personality is way extroverted. I can be very charismatic and goofy and I like to make people laugh, and the point of my music to make people want to have fun and enjoy life.”

Part of that attitude has come from a life that hasn’t always been fun. Growing up, D1 didn’t have a lot of friends. He was bullied in school and wasn’t always treated well by his family at home. He started writing poetry at a young age as a way to get his pent up emotions out. When he went to a summer camp and took a music class one year, that poetry turned into song- writing – the rest is history.

“I have had some struggles, but that ultimately has made me a more humble and grounded person,” he said. “My craft has evolved along with my personal growth. I have been dealing with adversity for a long time now, but that hasn’t stopped me from having faith in my music and my career. And through it all I’ve come out fun and extroverted. And my music will always show you that I do not know when to give up.”

O.G. Charlie Frank$$$ – Never Have To Question My Love

OG Charlie Frank$$$ drops new single ‘Never Have to
Question My Love’

HOUSTON, TX – Music that has staying power is music that’s well put together and has substance to it. OG Charlie Frank$$$ is the kind of artist whose music will be around 100 years from now because it not only has substance and quality, but it also has a timeless quality to it that’s reminiscent of some of the legends of the industry.

Hailing from Houston, Texas, this hip-hop artist is one of the industry’s most highly regarded trendsetters. He’s the kind of artist who takes the legendary sounds of the past and fuses them with new-wave sounds of the future to create truly original music that will still be impressing fans for years to come. He first influenced and pioneered the mid-1980s sounds of hip-hop throughout Houston, alongside other legends like Mr. Scarface and the Safoolz. In the mid-1990s he introduced a new style of music he calls “screw music” or “slab music,” collaborating with the iconic DJ Screw. And by the 2000s he was taking those sounds and melding them with his own unique style to create a fad that swept the nation through his work alongside Sauce Walka and Sancho Sauce.

Following those decades of success, OG Charlie Frank$$$ is ready to release his newest project – a 15-track EP he’s calling “The OG.” It’s a project that will talk about his experiences with life and the game, his time on the streets and even some of the politics of the world. Of course the project reflects his unique perspective on life while dealing with the realities of the world in ways that anyone can relate with.

“The thing that sets me apart is my perspective,” he said. “I have a distinct perspective about life. From my experience from the streets I have a different insight about things that a lot of other artists couldn’t talk about. A lot of my songs are stories from my life, but sometimes I’ll just dibble and dabble and do stuff for fun. But mostly I’m talking about life. And that’s because I want my music to be known for its authenticity and real-ness. I want my music to have a shelf-life where 100 years from now you can pick up my album and feel that experience all over again. That’s what I love about ‘70s music – you can pick up anything from that era and it still makes you feel the same way.”

The first single of OG Charlie Frank$$$’s new EP is a song called “Never Have to Question My Love.” The song features a sample from a Biggie song. OG said he took a Biggie riff and put a little “Southern flavor over it.” Ultimately the song is about infidelity and the stuff people go through in a relationship to prove their love, even when they mess up sometimes. The overall vibe of the single has a ‘90s swing to it, and OG said it’s just some “feel-good, throw-back music.”

In addition to his new music, OG Charlie Frank$$$ has a record label under Street Playa
Entertainment with his Greatest Hits CD coming out very soon, something for fans to look out for. He also has a clothing line called Strydgees – which means “warrior spirit.”

MANi$H – Ain’t Playin

MANi$H announces himself to the world with new single
‘Ain’t Playin’

LOS ANGELES, CA – A new sound out of Southern California is here from artist MANi$H, and his unique sound and style is one that cannot be ignored.

His new single, “Ain’t Playin,” is an announcement to the world that he’s here to stay and his brand of music is legitimate. With a flow reminiscent of Ice Cube or Busta Rhymes, MANi$H rails against the haters while declaring to the world that he’s going to deliver a high-quality sound that will not be pushed to the side. He’s bringing it hard with this single, and anyone who isn’t ready for the real deal should prepare themselves because MANi$H “Ain’t Playin.”

MANi$H said his music is inspired from growing up in a single-parent household by a very young mother who attempted to provide the best ways she knew how. His music is about providing a mannish perspective of all of life’s opportunities by pushing forward. MANi$H was born in Portland, Oregon and raised in a variety of places along the West Coast – from Southern California to Alaska. In addition to his single mother, the streets became his teacher – and he spent time in youth detention centers and foster homes, where he learned how to hustle his way out of situations and catapult himself beyond his inflicted environments. Along the way he developed a passion for music, and has maintained a focus and determination to be the change he wants to see. Today he lives as a coach, teacher and mentor to those he surrounds himself with.

“My stage name has a two-fold meaning,” he said. “I have a real aggressive and mannish delivery and perspective, but my niche is to keep people on point and help them appreciate that we can’t allow ourselves to slip. We’ve got to stay on our toes at all times, staying on our ‘man shit.’ That’s the consistent message throughout my music. It’s a reminder to understand that you’re going to encounter things in life that will cause you adversity, but if you remain unwavering and maintain your composure and self-dignity then you will always be a man first.”

MANi$H has a unique sound and delivery that is easy for fans to understand. He enunciates his words in ways that cut through to the core and challenge listeners to sit up and pay attention. Anyone who listens to his new album will be able to have a solid understanding of what he’s talking about, even when he uses metaphors to paint pictures of his deeper ideas. And those ideas are in-your-face and to the point, because MANi$H isn’t afraid to say what’s on his mind. Even when he changes up his wordplay and messes with syllables, his message is very consistent. Combine that with modern beats and a diverse sound, and his new album is sure to have people begging for more.

“Ain’t Playin” is currently available for download on all digital distribution sites. He plans to follow that up with an album called “MAN-i$H,” slated to be released on Oct. 6. To listen to MANi$H’s music, or to follow him on social media, please visit:
