Gameboi – Snapchat

Gameboi combines West Coast sound with the South for original hip-hop

LAS VEGAS, NV – Tyree Curry, known professionally as Gameboi, is a rapper and CEO of Copastedik Hardknock Records who is starting to turn heads along the West Coast with his unique sound and style.

Originally from South Central Los Angeles, Gameboi was first recognized for his artistic talent by Universal Records when he was only 9 years old. While rapping in a restaurant one day, a talent scout happened to overhear him and offered to get him in touch with the studio. He called up the record execs and had young Curry rap over the phone, and the next day he was on a flight to Nashville. He became a young artist under Universal’s label and made a couple of albums. He made his debut on the radio with the hit single “Get Busy,” and has earned multiple awards, including first place at Coast to Coast Live for his mixtape in 2013.

Though the contract with Universal eventually expired and didn’t quite pan out the way he hoped, he hasn’t lost his passion for music and has since started his own company with his brother Deshon Oneal – known professionally as DLocc. Under this new label, Gameboi has released his most recent single, “Snapchat,” and is currently in the process of developing a new EP.

“’Snapchat’ is a real catchy, club-ready and radio-ready song,” Gameboi said. “It’s about the app, and how you can find a girl who looks so good that you have to put her on your Snapchat. It’s a song that’s relating to a guy who’s seeing a girl he thought was good looking. It’s a song that uses the West Coast kind of vibe but is combined with a new type of sound that I think can appeal to the ears of a younger crowd that wants to party and have a good time.”

Gameboi said one of the things that helps him stand out from the crowd of so many other hip-hop artists is his gritty, original vocals. They’re so distinct, he said, that once someone hears him one time they’ll never be able to forget that sound and will know immediately the next time they hear his voice. And when people hear his voice, they’ll know immediately that it’s going to be a good song with a good hook that will grab them immediately.

“I aim to create feel-good music that encourages folks to love life and live in their truth,” he said. “I see music as a language from, and I’ve progressed in life by using music to express myself. I want to be known for making good music that sounds different, and for having my own voice that sounds exactly like me and celebrates me being me.”
“Snapchat” is on all streaming platforms. Also, to listen to Gameboi’s music or to follow him on

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.”

Darrell Kelley – Believe in Something (Kneel)

American Gospel music is a big business, and has been part of the business plan of American Christianity for more than a century. As the American Christian Community has strengthened its ties together, the various forms of Gospel have come into their own. Darrell Kelley was born and raised in Boston and had joined this tradition through his own efforts as a pastor, businessman, author and now musician.

After years shepherding a flock of believers as a Bishop and Pastor in Morrow and now owning multiple restaurants in Georgia and Florida, Kelley entered into the music industry in a major way with the release of his first single “Unity” earlier this year. In just a few months he has already left his stamp on the Gospel music scene, and his newest single “Believe in Something (Kneel)” is putting his name on people’s lips all over the country.

“As a musician and a Gospel entertainer, I really and truly believe we need to stand up for what we believe in,” Kelley said. “We need to come together as a country and stop being divided. I write music just to spread a positive message. I don’t believe in doing music with violence. I have the right music that is good for people to help them understand the positive message I’m bringing. I want to continue to write music and continue to sing positive things in reference to anything that is primarily negative. I want to turn those things into something positive, if I can. I’ve always been someone who has a voice to help out a situation by speaking out about it or singing about it.”

In the case of “Believe in Something,” Pastor Kelley is exploring the conversation around the freedom of speech and the controversy that has arisen in the wake of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the singing of the National Anthem in protest to the way minorities are treated in the U.S. In essence, Kelley uses the song to encourage people to take a different look at the situation and remember that everyone has a right to think and speak and feel the way they do when they live in America because it is a basic right.

“I agree with Kaepernick 100 percent,” he said. “There have already been a lot of write-ups about this song, and some people have been disappointed in me, but I’m sticking by it. I’m glad I got a reaction because that means people are focusing on what I’m saying. There are more things in America that are more important than worrying about a person taking a knee at a football game. There are more serious issues in the world.”

Ultimately, the theme that flows throughout the song – and really all of his songs – is the idea of UWGEAM. It’s a way of thinking that Pastor Kelley created that embraces love, unity and acceptance. He has created an organization and wrote a book called “The Book of UWGEAM.” The idea takes the basic tenants of God’s laws – to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength; and to love your neighbor as yourself – and then says, “live the way you want to live and enjoy life.”

“You’re an individual at the end of the day, so don’t let race or religion take away your character,” Kelley said. “That’s why I’m doing what I’m doing, to spread that message. Gospel music has always been done by those who hear the calling in their hearts. The business has grown up around that. I have that calling in my heart.”

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.

Rawrr Interviews – Richard Pigkaso

Coming off his performance of the Monday Night Rawrr #GiveBackShow this past Saturday; Bronx artist Richard Pigkaso has started a new initiative called the #OurBikerJacket Initiative in which the proceeds will go to Autism Speaks, making Richard Pigkaso our latest artist spotlight. Since the release of his project There are Always Strings Attached he has continued to strive and will even be performing in Arizona this summer. Read his interview below .

 

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I was born and raised in Bronx, New York. I would consider myself an introvert that is constantly trying to break out of his shell. Also I love food more than I love people.

2) What is a typical day / week like for you?
I usually head to work at 5am. As I’m on the train or my father dropping me at work, I am hearing beats and thinking of writing creative rhymes. After work, I go home yo-yoing while I’m walking and on the train waiting. I usually stop by this peanut stand by the train and I eat them as I’m walking home. I get prepared for the gym with my pre-workout and protein shake and workout for about a half hour a day. I usually hut the hay around 930 and do the day all week. On weekends, I’m at the studio for about 4 hours and go on cray weird random adventures with my friends in the city.
3) How did you get into rap ? What is your creative process like?
I got into rap about 2012 but didn’t take it really serious until 2014. I wrote a lot of poems in college and one of my friends was a songwriter for Sony. He recommended me to a person that eventually lead me to where I’m at today, a signed artist on Coalishun Entertainment. My process for writing my lyrics comes from my personal life. I take certain aspects of it, and turn it into a fun song. Other times it comes from how I’m feeling at that moment and the inspiration flows through my veins. I would also yo-yo for hours thinking of lyrics. Yo-yoing is like an extension of my brain to come up with complicated wordplay and stupid punch lines.
4) Do you feel like you needed any musical training ?
Not really. I am self-taught. In the beginning, ill admit, it was kind of difficult to learn how to rhyme. Overtime, after some practice and my friends and label mates encouraging me to be better, I ventured out into excelling in my vocabulary and added them to my music.
5) How important do you feel your image is as an artist?
I’m a yo-yo rapper… what image?
6) You have recently been featured on Wu Tang’s mistake? How did this happen and how do you feel about that?
My friend shared an IG photo of the contest to me. DJ Symphony was holding a contest for his latest mix tape called “Wu-Invasion Mix tape – World Edition” hosted by Ghostface Killah. I uploaded my song “OMG” which features Kwoat. I didn’t think nothing of it because I knew he wasn’t going to pick me to be apart of it. About a week later, I get a call on my phone while I’m at work from DJ Symphony himself telling me I am getting a slot on his mix tape. I was so excited that I told EVERYBODY close to me about it. What made it more surprising was that my song is featured on Wikipedia. I didn’t even know that was apart of it. As of today it has over 4 million downloads.
7)  What is your secret to your videos, how have you always pulled great numbers ?
The secret is simply being yourself. I always make sure any video I do contains my thoughts in real time. What you see is what I think of myself. Certain numbers I’m not gonna lie, you got to put up some bread. Also you got to reach a lot of legit IG followers that have organic views. You may have to pay $100-$700 if you want a few to a lot of people to see your masterpiece. Your budget as to match your promotion. If you’re putting $1000 for videos put another $1000 for promotion.
8) Tell us about the this is our biker jacket initiative ? What do you hope to achieve with this?
I am doing a personal project called “This Is Our Biker Jacket”, Go follow it on Instagram @thisisourbikerjacket . Its a project where I travel to different showcases, events, exhibitions etc. and ask everyone or anyone in the underground or up and coming in the world of music, art, film etc. to put their signature on an all white biker jacket. This jacket will be a great representation of people who are grinding and striving to be all they can be while starting from the bottom. After the jacket is fully signed, I’m going to shadowbox it (put the jacket in a frame) and put it up for auction. All proceeds will go to @autismspeaks As you can see in just a few weeks, we have a lot of notable people who want to be apart of this endeavor. it officially kicked off on July 7th with @safielvonay of @thenycgrind being the first signees. I truly appreciate everyone that is on the jacket and in the future will sign my jacket. If you ever see me carrying this on my back or hanging this on a wall, don’t hesitate to stop me and ask to sign. I would hope it would inspire other people to want to be able to come together and help out different causes around the world. It doesn’t only have to be autism. It can be breast cancer, AIDS, Diabetes etc. I have always love joining causes and I wanted to do my part as a human being.
9) Tell us about your other community actions, what made you want to be involved with Autism Speaks!  how important is it for you or for artists to take action in community matters?
Personally, I have had developmental issues in my life. I had lead poisoning at age 5 and I was really sick for about 2 years straight. Always throwing up, having headaches, going to the doctor etc. took a toll on my learning. People called me stupid, dumb, and the worst retarded. I was bullied to a point where I had to transfer high schools because I was afraid to go. Overtime, with the help of my parents, I was able to overcome certain mental obstacles and had a normal life. I got 2 college degrees in business, a great paying job at a hospital, and able to be creative with music while having a great social life.
10) What is next for Richard Pigkaso?
Don’t want to give too much away, but ill say new music videos, more awesome music, and maybe a short film. It’s all in the beta stages but we shall see what happens in the future.
There are Strings Attached Available Everywhere Now
