NICKELS – “Take A Ride” (Music Video)

Germany-based Hip-Hop artist NICKELS grew up with major influence coming from U.S. Hip-Hop culture–studying rappers like DMX, Tupac, Immortal Technique, 50 Cent and Mobb Deep. Having been raised in South Africa for most of his life and later relocating to Berlin, Germany, he’s picked up a ton of versatility that eventually translated into his own music. Rap has given NICKELS, who was aptly named after his skillful ways of ‘chasing the bag’, a sense of identity throughout his life’s trials & tribulations. His reflects on that with the release of his latest music video, Take a Ride.

I been through a lot of bad times and went through hell and back. I used to be in a lot of trouble as a kid and had to move a lot. Rap definitely helped me to give me a voice to express myself and be heard. In the song ’Take a Ride’ I’m speaking about these dark times that I been through. -NICKELS

“Take a Ride” is a smooth and honest offering coming in from the international emcee. Take a look & listen to his new effort, and stay tuned for more heat soon to come.

Aquarius Jones – All In

Clarity and relevance of debut album “All In” elevate Aquarius Jones above the crowd

PHOENIX, AZ – Hip Hop and R&B artist, Aquarius Jones has a passion for delivering fun and entertaining music, coupled with an energy that attracts sophisticated music listeners. His first single “All In” is set to release 11/8, followed by his debut album also titled “All In” soon after.

Recorded at DigiLabs (Phoenix) and The Saltmine (Mesa), “All In” is 15 tracks of enjoyable dance music with themes related to the grind and hustle of everyday life. The collection is characterized by a clean, professional sound with strikingly clear vocals. The highly relevant track, “IG” brings to life the struggle of worrying about what to post and how much to post on social media. The aptly named “Party” track is a straightforward, uptempo dance song, and the album’s title track relates the story of the partnership between Aquarius and his manager, sharing the energy and effort it takes to launch a career and an album.

Aquarius and his team take great pains to make certain that his content resonates with fans by delivering clear and understandable lyrics consistently. Enthusiastic about making music, Aquarius is also gifted with an ability to write quality songs. He can deliver what people want – a nice beat with a catchy hook – at an incredibly fast pace.

Music videos have already been completed for two tracks, “IG” and “All In.” Shot in and around Tempe, Arizona, students from Arizona State University will recognize some of the locations. The highly anticipated videos incorporate skits reminiscent of an old school music video storytelling style. The story lines sound promising: While the video for “All In” shares the work behind the progress of this artist’s career, the “IG” video features comedy, acting out humorous social media situations and the clever inclusion of a pervasive Instagram item which you have to watch out for!

Aquarius Jones started singing, rapping, doing talent shows and writing his own music when he was 9 years old. Music was something he always wanted to do growing up while listening to his favorite artists like Michael Jackson, Drake, Usher, Chris Brown. He seriously began to pursue his music career at 16. A committed and electrifying performer, audiences have always gravitated towards him.

An authentic artist who is into having a good time, enjoying life and meeting people, Aquarius’ positivity comes out in his music. He has a higher level of excitement and passion than his peers which drew the attention of his manager. This resulted in a partnership with GMajesty Entertainment to create top quality music that is real and enjoyable to a wide audience, and to bring those results to the world. Aquarius Jones is delivering his message in a cool way that can be enjoyed by all.

The Night Wolf – Run Up

Toronto-based rap group set to drop ‘Animal Asylum’ mixtape at midnight on Halloween

A new mixtape from the Toronto-based rap group The Night Wolf comes just in time for Halloween. The mixtape is called “Animal Asylum” and is slated to drop at midnight on Halloween, followed with a release party at a downtown club in Toronto, information about which can be found on their website. According to group co-founder SJM, the 10-track project features a blend of Hip Hop and EDM in ways that are both entertaining and very diverse. 

“You can really hear that throughout every song,” SJM said. “That’s true to who we are. My brother and I have been rapping and making music together for a long time, and our friends have just added another layer to that. We’re excited to put out this first tape and we promise that it’s just the beginning.”

The Night Wolf consists of seven people with diverse talents, showing a great  deal of variety — SJM and his brother, FAM; producer Knockturnul; artists Da$a Façade, Mayze and Zam; and photographer/videographer Magic. SJM said the group’s goal is to travel the globe performing and building the most diverse fan-base in the world while delivering a consistent message that is both positive and inspirational. He points to the group as the foundation for that diversity as he and his brother are both from Pakistan, while others in the group come from a variety of cultural backgrounds and heritages.

“This is a movement,” SJM said. “It’s more than just music. It’s more than just our passion. This is a lifestyle we promote. We promote an open-minded positive movement. Through our music, we speak on our lives past, present and future to try our best to help the listeners get through life’s ups and downs and ultimately help change their perspective and make better decisions. We are intelligent, educated young individuals. We are both street smart and book smart, and we tend to use this as an advantage as we move forward with our independent movement.”

SJM said as the group grows in popularity and success across the globe, some of their long-term goals are to leave a lasting legacy of giving back to the world. They want to build foundations and organizations that help build schools, hospitals, safe water wells and more in places of need all around the globe. And all of those dreams and efforts fall under this umbrella of teamwork and close-knit family – something that SJM said is perfectly represented by the wolf logo.

“We move as a pack,” he said. “We’re a family. The flames symbolize the fire in us and the fact that we won’t quit. The wolf howling is a call to all my wolves in the world, hustling and trying to live their dream. Anybody can be a part of this, you just have to have the same drive and ambition and motivation. If you want to be part of something great, you don’t have to be related to us by blood. But you do have to be a hustler and be real. We’re trying to promote real.”

Ques The Hood Favorite – Nothin To Lose

Ques The Hood Favorite combines Hip Hop with R&B
For One-Of-A-Kind Neo-Soul Vibe

WILMINGTON, DE – Step into a barbershop in Wilmington, Delaware and there’s a good chance you’ll run into one of today’s most intriguing new artist. His name is Ques The Hood Favorite. While he’s served Wilmington as a barber for the better part of 30 years, he is also steadily developing a unique sound and style that combines Hip Hop and R&B into a new vibe that is giving Neo-Soul an entirely different definition.

His latest single, “Nothing To Lose,” exemplifies how his years of artist expression perfected something truly original. The buzz behind this single is tremendous along the East Coast and is set to explode across the U.S. in the forthcoming weeks and months. It’s a song that serves as a brief description of how he came up from a young adult to the kind of man he is today, within different periods of his life. The melodic on-beat bass gives listeners a soulful, laid back vibe that is soothing to the ear and demands to hit repeat. 

While growing up in the inner city on the east side of Wilmington as a young man, Ques experienced some of life’s harsh realities. He grew up in a family of musicians, and was introduced to accomplished artists at a young age. He had the opportunity to study under The Late Great Walter “Bunny” Sigler. After high school, he collectively created the Hip Hop group 2 of a Kind. After three years of collaborating with others and touring as part of the group, Ques decided to go solo and adopt the full stage name Ques The Hood Favorite. His continuation to make music has afforded him opportunities over the years to open for various artists such as Ruff Ryders, Roc-a-fella, Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Tank, 112, and Big Daddy Kane to name a few. With his raspy voice and confidence growing, he continued experimenting with his unique sound and style creating something that would be signature. 

Along with “Nothing To Lose,” Ques is also getting ready to drop his new album, “The Maturation.” It features collaborations with Producer/Engineer Waterboy, who he has worked with for many years. It’s a project that Ques said is based off of creating mature music for adults.  

 “My sound is more of a collaboration of R&B and Hip Hop with a Neo-Soul Vibe, all combined to create my own style. Over the years, I’ve rapped and also written for R&B Artists. Being raised on 70s and 80s music, I feel like the music has been moved to only one style on the radio and we’ve lost a lot of what used to be great.  Today, Hip Hop is based around the younger generation, and it seems to lack substance. I want my label (Maturation Entertainment) to create a product full of material that everyday adults can appreciate because of the topics that it’s based upon. Now is the perfect time to put my sound out there.”

Ques also has completed a mixtape titled “PMS” (Positivity Maturity and Success) which is soon to be released.
