HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST YV BABY TALKS NEW RELEASE "WORTH THE WEIGHT"


LISTEN TO THE FULL Q&A PODCAST BELOW

California Rapper to Release “Worth the Weight” through Str8 Laced Entertainment  

FRESNO, CA– From rap battling to taking on a Drake-inspired sound, YV Baby has been after the music since he could remember. Like most aspiring rappers, he grew up listening to Tupac, which really ignited a fire in him. He knew his passion had meaning behind it, which is why he took it upon himself to pursue a career in music. YV has always had an ear for music, and when it comes to making beats and producing his songs, it's completely evident.    When it comes to the artist's signature style, he doesn't pigeonhole himself in one specific genre. His influences stem from a good amount of "old school" music, so those tones shine through in his music. "The soul is there. My sound kind of reminds me of something you'd hear from Bobby Valentino. I'm really different from other artists. I don't
want to be like anyone else," said YV. In other words, the artist's sound is truly what makes him who he is artistically.

As YV steps into the booth, he goes completely full throttle in terms of expressing himself. Everything comes directly from his heart, and aligns with the emotions he feels when he's in the studio. This raw side of him can be heard through his latest projects, "Living the Life" and "Married to the Game". "Nothing is slowing me down. I'm not letting it- I'm staying focused, which is what 'Married to the Game' is all about. I'm pushing for success, and not letting anything get in the way of that," said YV Baby. It's always a surreal feeling to hear that your fans think your music is dope, which only motivates YV to continue chasing after his rap dreams. 

Coming up this fall, YV Baby will be releasing his upcoming album "Worth the Weight". He tells us there is way more music on the way, as so much he has been working on is currently unreleased. There is always something up his sleeve in terms of music, which is important to him in order to keep his fans satisfied. The artist is a true inspiration for aspiring musicians to follow- his work ethic is unmatched.

GOSPEL RECORDING ARTIST TALKS NEW SINGLE "UNITY" AND MORE!



LISTEN TO THE Q&A PODCAST BELOW


Georgia bishop and restaurant owner  hits Gospel scene by storm with new music

MORROW, GA – 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.”

HIP HOP ARTIST "NEALY" TALKS LATEST PROJECT - PAPER PRODUCTS AND MORE!

LISTEN TO THE FULL Q&A PODCAST BELOW!



Nealy’s new album offers fans a variety of ‘good vibes’ 

RALEIGH, NC – Justin Nealy is the kind of guy you just love to hang out with. He always has been. For as long as he can remember he’s had a natural talent for making people happy. And it just so happens that the best way he does that is through music.

When it comes to his artistry, his music serves as the backdrop for a true entertainer. He loves to record music, but he loves to perform it for a live audience even more. His most recent project is an album called “Paper Products” that he said he’s excited for fans to hear, and which he can’t wait to bring to people for some live performances over the next few months.

The project is a diverse offering of different sounds and styles that he hopes will be attractive to a wide variety of listeners. It features his unique sound and style that mixes clever wordplay laced with subtle humor that often leads to deeper ideas, all within a beat and vibe that people can enjoy.

“People can’t relate to a lot of the rap out there, but they jump to it because that’s what’s on the radio,” Nealy said. “I want people to understand me and know where my heart is when I’m writing music. And I want them to feel it the same way I feel it. My songs always depend on the beat. If I find something I like, I’ll listen to it over and over until I get the feel of it, and then I ask myself, ‘What can that feeling represent? Is it about love, or is it a club song, or is it a song that’s just for cruising and having a good time and smoking with my buddies?’ I never have an idea of the song until I actually fully feel the song I’m about to write to, and when it comes together I know others are gonna feel it, too.”

 A perfect example of that is the debut single from the album, “The Passion of Rapping.” It’s a song that serves as an announcement to the world that his pursuit of success within the music industry is a serious endeavor that others should take seriously, too. It’s a song that proves he really can rap, and it perfectly encapsulates all the things he represents as an artist – funny, serious, cool and a little bit different. A music video for the single is due to drop in mid-to-late November.

FORMER VIRGIN RECORDS RECORDING ARTIST KEITHIAN TALKS NEW SINGLE AND EP


                                       LISTEN TO THE FULL PODCAST Q&A  BELOW

                                   
                                   Keithian gives us Birds? 

LOS ANGELES, CA – Keithian isn’t a name most would recognize, but the next time you hear it, you will. This New Orleans native has written and produced for some of music’s biggest names and was signed to Virgin Records. But after two failed attempts to release music through them, he decided to take control of his own career and give the label system the “bird.”

“Birds,” the first single from Keithian’s upcoming EP “… to my Pain,” comes off the heels of his “Power” EP which was released in 2016. This past summer, Keithian connected with Caribbean producer and keyboardist Oliver Delcros-Sainville during a session working on music for Rhianna. The pair spent a week in the studio and discovered a connection. Out of those sessions was born the beginning of the songs that would make up Keithian’s upcoming EP.

“‘Birds’ was written about me trying to fall in love, but realizing I’m not fully there,” Keithian said. “My heart and mind was on other shit, like hoes and bullshit. I mean, I’m a guy of nature and when I looked at birds at that time in my life, they reminded me of how I should’ve been flying away from bad behaviors and being honest with that someone I was participating in fake love with.”

Keithian fought over the years to stay true to his culture and heritage in his music. Being Cuban and a Jazz musician, the record labels didn’t know what to do with him. They told him it was hard to gain mainstream success in those genres, and were not willing to support his endeavors. So he went back to Louisiana and created an Urban Pop, R&B and Spanish sound that was natural, authentic and felt “damn good” to him.“Ultimately, I want my music to be known for good vibes, humility, inspiration and truth,” he said. “My soul is a gumbo of music, just like the world we live in. And since I make music for the people, and there’s people of all kinds of taste and stories, I’ll let them choose what music they want from me. The first song I’d like to give them is ‘Birds.’”
