Yo Gotti associate and business partner Howard “Keon” Wright facing 10-14 years

 

The Vice President of Yo Gotti’s CMG label, Howard “Keon” Wright has been there for the ups and downs of the long time feud between Yo Gotti and fellow Memphis Hip Hop star Young Dolph. The tensions hit all time high in 2016 resulting in a shoot out in both a Charlotte area hotel as well as one aimed at Dolph’s tour vehicle.  For many years speculation was made the gunmen were working on orders of CMG label head Yo Gotti, which were never confirmed. Now things have hit the fan as Vice President “Keon” has pled guilty to a multitude of charges including:  discharging a firearm into occupied property, discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle in operation, conspiracy to discharge a firearm into an occupied dwelling, eight counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling and misdemeanor carrying a concealed gun.  With all of that said Wright remains in the county jail with no bond awaiting a 10-14 year sentence.

#News Slick Rick and Wendy Day How To Get A Record Deal

unnamed-1

Rap Coalition announces that legendary rapper Slick Rick is the voice of the audiobook edition of “How To Get A Record Deal”, Wendy Day’s sage guidebook for anyone passionate about cracking the hard-to-penetrate music business. The audiobook due for release on Thursday, December 14th is available at www.iwantarecorddeal.com and http://www.ricktheruler.net.

Day and Rick have been close friends for more than two decades. “When Rick entered the music industry in the late ‘80s there was no path, so he created one”, said Day. “He’s still standing strong, and has always been a supporter of my work. His career typifies what I write about in the book: standing out, overcoming setbacks, and becoming a world-class performer.”

Rick said, “I’m hard-pressed to express how honored I am to have completed this audiobook with my dear friend, Wendy. She’s one of the few people I’ve trusted in my career, always giving it to me straight, raw and honest, with a generous dose of compassion.”

Day’s focus in the book is educating rappers, singers, producers and musicians about how to build a career in the music business beyond signing a recording contract (or without the benefit of a label deal in the first place). Slick Rick’s trademark British accent delivers no-holds-barred facts and fundamentals Day collected through the years as an advocate for some of the biggest urban and pop stars. He conveys her cutting-edge counsel musicians and managers navigating a dodgy and volatile industry need to heed.

“My goal is to ensure that dreams of fame & fortune don’t end up becoming daunting nightmares”, said Day, who has shopped and negotiated deals for stars such as Eminem, Master P, Do Or Die, Twista, Boosie, Webbie, BG, Pimp C from UGK, C-Murder, Fiend, Trouble, David Banner and Young Buck; the music labels No Limit and Cash Money Records and producers Beats By The Pound.

#News Introducing AYO and TEO

unnamed

Hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, brothers Ayleo and Mateo Bowles (a.k.a. AYO and TEO) have been dancing and competing at dance since elementary school. Influenced by greats such as Michael Jackson, Usher and Chris Brown, the duo quickly developed their own unique brand of dancing and began to upload Youtube videos from their basement and living room. With no promotion and strictly through the power of social media, they began to gain mass appeal by creating and having their “dance challenges” reposted to some of Instagram’s most popular dance pages.

Recognizing this as their main outlet, Teo created what has become an instant phenomenon and their moniker – “THE REVERSE“. Simply reversing the steps to some of world’s best dance crazes, their Reverse of the “Nae Nae” went viral overnight, on every posted outlet and received over 150 million views so far.

Kicked off with a number of pics and vids reposted by Chris Brown, the two are now rubbing elbows and sharing stages with the very people that influenced them the most. Most recently being invited and flown out to perform by Usher himself, the boys shared the 2016 BET Awards stage with the R&B phenom.
