Ben Grizz – Steak and Rice

Ben Grizz Keeps Charts Hot with “Expensive Taste”

FITCHBURG, MA – If you want to know who’s currently making his bid to become Massachusetts’ next hip-hop star, look no further than Ben Grizz. Growing up around the music, Ben often found himself dabbling into it. He only started buckling down in efforts to grow his career as an artist about a year ago. The growth is impressive because ever since then, he has taken his talents to the next level.

Ben describes the past year as a complete rollercoaster. With developing his sound and perfecting his craft, he’s navigated all of the ups and downs that come with it. “It’s been an experiment finding out what works and what doesn’t. I like to make club music, but I don’t define myself by a genre. I bring a lot to the table,” said Grizz. Adding to that, the artist tells us how genuine he is not only through his music, but also in everyday life. His sound is what he refers to as old school warmth with a modern day punch.

Last October, Ben released his fan-favorite EP “Expensive Taste”. Since then, his music has circulated radio charts, especially hip-hop focused ones. “I’ve gotten some really positive feedback since the release. The album release party sold out, and it was wild. People are really loving it,” said Ben. The album reflects on a lifestyle that the artist lives out each day. Through this, fans can get a peek into his world, which is always respectable.

What’s coming up next in the world of Ben Grizz? This weekend, he has a show in Fitchburg, MA, which will likely have a packed house. He tells us fans can expect a lot more from him, especially from a visual perspective. If you’re in Austin for SXSW, make sure to check him out- he will be there keeping the stage hot!

Sire Castro – My Vest

Sire Castro drops hot new track ‘My Vest’ just in time for New Year

BRONX, NY – If you were to Google the name Sire Castro, you’d likely find stories about a  very controversial battle rap with another up-and-coming rapper about a decade ago that took place in New York City in front of Sean Diddy Combs and the Bad Boy staff. There’s footage all over the Internet of that battle, and Castro became an overnight name because of that one event. But he isn’t an artist who can be encapsulated in just one moment. In fact, he’s a successful musician who has been producing hit after hit for more than just the past 10 years. Like his namesake, Fidel Castro, he’s taking the music scene by storm and impacting an entire country.

Today, Sire Castro is launching a new single called “My Vest.” It’s a remake of the 1989 single “Too Hype” by the group In Touch – a song that was huge back in its day. Castro said he’s tapping into that success and using it to turn the song into a street version of the popular track.

“It’s a throw-back to a song that was hype back in the days, but I’m re-inventing it all over again,” he said. “My versatility and delivery set me apart from anyone else out there. The tone of my voice, also.  I want to be known for having a distinctive sound. Half these rappers today sound the same, but my style is different and I don’t want to sound the same as anyone else. That’s why I took the name Sire Castro – Sire means ‘You’re majesty,’ and Castro was the old king of Cuba who nobody messed with. Nobody dared to test him, and he impacted an entire country. That’s what my music is about.”

Castro said he first started being interested in rap when he was only 5 or 6 years old. His father was a DJ and loved music, and Castro grew up with that environment and influence. At age 8 he saw the classic hip-hop film “Krush Groove,” and a flame was sparked. Not long after he dominated at a fifth grade talent show with an original rap, and from that moment forward he never looked back. He credits legends such as Notorious BIG and Jay-Z for influencing much of his career, and he prides himself in paying homage to the styles of the old-school rappers and bridging the gap from those legends to the modern-day sounds that are popular across the country.

Over the course of his career he has dropped hits such as “Gem Em Cash,” “A Week Ago,” and “18 Wheeler.” He has also collaborated with some big name sin the game, including: Jadakiss, Styles P, Queen Patra, AZ, French Montana, Cory Gunz, and RIP Stack Bundles. He has performed on the notorious SOB’s stage in New York, and has toured in other states such as California, Miami, North Carolina, Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Atlanta.

This South Bronx lyrical assassin said he plans to continue his streak of hits with “My Vest,” and aims to use the success of that single as momentum going into the album he’s currently working on and which will release mid-year 2019.

Lil Poots – Trap Chronicles

Self-made man Lil Poots uses stories of survival to connect with fans

SAVANNAH, GA – A lot of people from Lil Poots neck of the woods grow up wanting to rap. The Southern Georgia native has grown up, like many other aspiring rappers, in the midst of the struggle. And like many other aspiring rappers, his point of view is one that explores a life of survival.

But to think of Lil Poots like every other aspiring rapper would be a mistake. His delivery, his sound and his style are all ingredients that make him stand out from the crowd. And his stories from the struggle aren’t what one would normally think of – he’s rapping about the truth and weaving in tales of relationships and love along the way.

“I just write about how I feel at the time or what I’m going through at the time,” Lil Poots said of the things that inspire him to create new music. “I just go in the studio and just freestyle until I find what I want. Most of my music is about a life of survival that a lot of people don’t get to know about, but lately I’ve been writing about a lot of what’s going on the streets. I also have one song that I wrote recently that’s about this chick I used to think about all the time.

Everybody sounds like somebody else, but I only sound like myself. There’s only one Poots.” Lil Poots emphasizes through his music that he is a self-made man. He grew up with a single mother with 3 children who worked her hardest to take care of all of them. He saved enough money on his own to move out to California to pursue his dreams. Once he got to California, he cleared out his closet to build a makeshift home studio. He got software and a laptop and started making music. As he developed as an artist and got better, he expanded his studio into a shed behind his house and began to “scratch my own stuff.” He’d freestyle in his own studio and organically come upon great lyrics that he’d scramble to write down before he forgot them.

“I would do whatever I gotta do to get where I want to get,” he said. “Nobody has helped me. No one has helped record my music. I just did it on my own. When people I hung out with used to drink and do crazy stuff, I would always say I was gonna be a rapper. I’d write down song and show my friends, and they liked it. I’ve always brought my own little energy and ad-libs, and I’m making it happen.”

Most recently Lil Poots released a party song called “It’s Going Down,” which is currently available on all digital downloading sites. It’s a song that he said is “just turnt,” with a hard beat and an upbeat vibe. He is also getting ready to release another single called “Trap Chronicles,” which he said is based on the mindset of a trapper and hustler.

Goddess Venus – Count it up ft Scrappy

Goddess Venus empowers women through music, launches new single ‘Count It Up’

BROOKLYN, NY – Venus is the Roman goddess of beauty and love. Goddess Venus music style represent that, but she is so much more. With her clever word play and beauty, it only makes sense that this Brooklyn-based artist would take the stage name Goddess Venus.  Venus is building a legacy based on the foundation of hustle and hard work. Her music career is bound to skyrocket in the coming months.

Already, Goddess Venus has accomplished a lot through a modeling career – including being published in Straight Stuntin Magazine, Pressure Magazine, Fenominal Magazine, Don Diva Magazine, Conceited Magazine, and Feds Sweetz Magazine. It’s not just her good looks or sexy style that she wants people to focus on the most. What she really wants to represent to the world is a woman who is smart, talented, and who demands respect.

“I want to be known for my boss demeanor,” she said. “I’m all about women empowerment and helping women chase their own money. My new single ‘Count It Up’ is a song that shows that. It’s about being a boss and being in control of your own life, but it’s also lively and anyone can have fun with it and turn up. That’s part of my personality. Being ambitious while chasing dreams and getting money as female boss is a lifestyle. I’m cocky and confident while still being sexy and having fun.”

In addition to her modeling career, Venus has also been involved in a handful of film projects, including a web series called “Karma Kills,” in which she had a lead role. She also had a lead role in the short film “Was it Really Worth It.” But while modeling and acting are things she’s interested in, her first love is music. Her sexy yet entertaining songs and boss-like attitude are inspirational and are destined to leave a mark on the industry, not just as one of the best female artists, but as one of the best hip-hop artists the industry has ever seen.

In just one year, Venus has already released two full projects – “Money Bitch Vol. 1” and “Chronicles of a Boss.” She has also performed at more than 20 venues all over the country and has been developed an extensive music video collection. All of that is testament to her hard work, and when you combine that with clever lyrics and a smooth party girl swagger, you get one of the hottest young entertainers in the country.

“I want my music to be known for women not just using their looks to get in,” she said. “I’m lyrical. I’m a hard worker. There’s more to the surface than just being cute and all the glitz and glam. I have music with a deeper message, and I want people to get to know me and who I am. I’m pushing for female independence because I’m all about chasing my goals and my dreams.”

“Count It Up” is currently available on all digital distribution sites. It features Atlanta superstar Lil Scrappy from “Love and Hip Hop.”
