HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST 'YOUNG NOBLE' TALKS NEW SINGLE "BIG DAWG STATUS" AND MORE THINGS IN THE WORKS!

Magnetic music from Southern Rapper Yung Noble motivates the masses




HAZLEHURST, GAA magnetic new sound from up-and-coming Rapper Yung Noble is setting the South on fire with motivational tracks and tales of inspiration.

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

Operating out of Hazlehurst, Georgia – a small town just over the border from Florida – this young Hip Hop artist is already leaving his mark on the music industry with his brash and bold storylines and his one-of-a-kind Southern flow. His whole life is an interesting tale and he weaves those words through each and every song he releases.

His most recent offering to the world is a huge vibe called “Big Dawg Status.” It’s the kind of song perfect for the summer, with a beat that will make listeners bob their heads, feel good and want to move.
“If you have any kind of musical inclination, it’ll make you want to move,” Yung Noble said. “It’s a song that talks about appearances and places and things that I do every day – things I’ve been through in the streets or dealt with females or just life in general. All of that is compacted and compressed and put together into this great-sounding vibe.”

Noble said the handful of people who have already heard it have given him great feedback, and
he’s looking forward to making a big splash on the national stage when it goes wide across all
streaming platforms in early June. Later this year, Noble said he plans to follow this single with
a full mix-tape called “LSD” which stands for Love, Strength and Determination. Not only will it
be a project that further explores his unique sound and style, but it will also take listeners into a
deeper dive of his story while also inspiring people from all walks of life to embrace love,
strength and determination in their own lives.

“I want my music to be known for the quality of it, for one,” Noble said, “the quality of my
message and the quality of the sound. And I want people to know that I always try to help
people and I always kept going and did not stop. I want them to see the relentlessness and the
drive. And more than anything, I want them to see the purity of the whole situation I’m bringing
– to listen to my songs and say, ‘Damn! This dude’s been through a lot! He’s good at what he
does and he likes doing what he does. Maybe I can do that, too.’ So it’s deeper than just the
music.”

JON SWAII STOPS BY AND TALKS NEW SINGLE "CONTAGIOUS" AND FUTURE PROJECTS

Jon Swaii expands on legacy of inspirational messages with powerful new music

Jon Swaii – Contagious – The Hype Magazine

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!!!

BRONX, NY – When Jon Swaii was a teenager in school, he remembers learning about the Vietnam war. One image from that period of time hit him deeply – the image of a Buddhist monk setting himself on fire in protest of the war. Jon saw that image and realized that the monk believed so much in his message that he knew his act of self-sacrifice would inspire others to take a stand. That’s the kind of impact he, too, wants to leave on the world.

The young artist from Bronx, New York is already starting to inspire people with his unique sound and style. As an artist and producer, Jon Swaii is using his talents to create meaningful messages that motivate the masses. He brings a diverse background of influences to the table too, which makes him the perfect artist to connect with a wide range of audiences.

Due to instability at home at an early age, Swaii relocated every couple of years – at one point living in Italy for two years. He also lived in Florida, Albany, Long Island, Virginia and Pennsylvania. He often felt like the “new kid” as a child and found himself the easy target for bullying. Instead of lashing out, he turned to poetry to release his emotions – turning his fearand rage into words that others started to connect with. He became obsessed with perfecting his craft, turning poetry into Rap and studying some of his favorite artists such as Kid Cudi, Jay-Z, Nas, Eminem, Andre 3000 and J. Cole. As a result, Swaii has created a sound that is real Hip Hop – lyrical, genuine and versatile.

“It’s not made for any one specific type of person,” he said of his music. “My main objective is
to influence the growing minority to grab power. There’s a genuine real-ness about my music. I
want to be one of those artists that people listen to and whose music is timeless. When you
listen to my music, I hope you get the same emotions 10 years from now as you do the first
time you listened to it.”


Jon Swaii – Contagious – The Hype Magazine

Swaii has quite the pedigree when it comes to music and inspirational messages. His great
grandfather, Leonard P. Howell, was the founder of Rastafarianism and preached a message of
black power and anti-colonialism in Jamaica, Africa and the U.S. Swaii said he wants to expand
on that legacy and use his music to connect in meaningful ways across the world.

He released the single “Contagious” 8 months ago and a re-release date is set for June 20th.
The song is a play on the way we all currently use and abuse technology, from the simple use of
our cell phones, to the over sharing on social media. “Contagious” brings awareness to the
flaws of being dependent on technology by today’s youth. What is meant to keep us all
connected quickly turns into a voice in our heads demanding “POST IT”.

He is also working on a bigger EP called “Paradise” which he hopes to release later this year.

CREATOR AND PRODUCER OF "LIGHTS IN THE SKY" KRISTA ALEXANDER TALKS ABOUT THE #1 FILM AND WHY SHE CREATED IT

Lights in the Sky on iTunes

I had a chance to sit down and talk with the creator and producer of the # 1 documentary film in the nation (iTunes charts) Krista Alexander.  We took a deep dive into these "lights in the sky" and talked about what they might be and why they are here.

What are these lights that people all across the world are seeing and videoing?  That's what Krista wanted to know, so she started her journey and ended up making a documentary film about them. Krista has a very impressive background. Among many things, she's also a combat veteran who has served her country.  That alone warrants much respect.

Have a listen BELOW to what all she had to say about the film everyone is talking about, "Lights In The Sky."

SOUL SINGER TY LASHAY STOPS BY AND TALKS NEW SINGLE 'SOMETIMES IT RAINS' AND MORE!

Soulful singer Ty Lashay inspires global audience with timely debut single ‘Sometimes it Rains’

Ty Lashay – Sometimes It Rains – The Hype Magazine

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

ATLANTA, GA – Struggle is a common denominator for most people in the U.S. today… and indeed, most people in the world. In fact, most days it feels as if there’s nothing but struggle, but up-and-coming soul artist Ty Lashay has a message of hope for the world that is both timely and timeless.

The young woman from Atlanta, Georgia has released a new single called “Sometimes It Rains” that is already starting to turn heads in the music industry. The feel-good vibe plays with heavy piano chords intermingled with layered lighter piano melodies against an upbeat, jazzy rhythm – all of which plays perfect counter point to Lashay’s soulful vocals. Listeners will be reminded of the powerful presence of Lauryn Hill or Mary J Blige when they hear Lashay’s voice, and they’d be right to make those comparisons as the words in her songs carry equal depth to those living legends.

“I’m a freestyle songwriter, meaning I’m writing lyrics off the top of my head and I’m writing what I feel,” Lashay said. “So when I’m going through stuff, I write about it. This song is about the struggle – everybody’s struggle – and saying that it’s OK. If people mock you in your struggle or while you’re going through things, that’s OK. Sometimes it rains, but the sun is gonna shine again. If people hate you or mock you or laugh at your struggle, it’s OK. I have struggles. You have struggles. Everybody has struggles. Sometimes we struggle and feel pain, and it’s OK.”

Ty Lashay – Sometimes It Rains – The Hype Magazine

Though Lashay has been a professional songwriter for a few years, this is her debut solo track. She said she’s excited for a wider audience to hear her voice and discover her soulful, emotional and inspiring music. She’s come a long way since writing her first song at the age of 10. Having honed her craft in the thriving musically influential city of Atlanta, Lashay has had the opportunity to travel and perform at some of the top music venues in the U.S.

One of the main places she performed at in Atlanta was at the "Original Apache Cafe ", a legendary venue in that city and abroad. She’s also had the opportunity to record sessions at Atlanta’s historic Patchwerk Studios, which is where “Sometimes it Rains” was recorded. And throughout thoseexperiences, she has developed a unique sound and style that is equal parts original and
nostalgic.

“I sound real different from anyone else out there today, but my music is also soulful and will
sound familiar in some ways when people listen to it,” she said. “I’m diverse and my music has
a real feel – an emotional feel – to it. I’m real truthful with my lyrics and the sound is organic.


I write inspiring music but also music to have fun with. Most of the time, I’m trying to send out a
message and I feel like what I’m putting out there is speaking to everybody. I recognize the
responsibility I have with that and I try to be conscious of the fact that my music is the kind of
music that makes you think and feel. At the end of the day, I want my music to be inspirational
worldwide. I want to be motivational and reach people and change people’s minds.


I want to touch souls and lives and make people think. I feel like I can reach people pretty much
everywhere and lift a lot of people’s spirits up so they can forget their problems and troubles
and bring a big smile to their faces.”

“Sometimes it Rains” is currently available across all streaming platforms, and Lashay said she
plans to follow that up with another single called “I Pray” later this summer.

PUNK RAP ARTIST DILLON LEE CRONAN TALKS NEW SINGLE "LEARN HOW TO SMILE" AND UPCOMING VIDEO RELEASE

Southern rocker blends punk and rap for modern twist on throw-back sound



LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

DALLAS, TX – Punk Rap music is about to spring back into the conversation thanks to Deep South artist Dillon Lee Cronan. The young musician from Dallas, Texas has perfected his one-of-a-kind sound and is set to put it on display with the release of his new single “Learn How to Smile.” It’s the first off an upcoming Punk Rap album called “A Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood” which is already available across all streaming platforms. However, the music video for “Learn How to Smile” will drop this summer.

Growing up in Dallas, Cronan said he was heavily influenced by punk rock bands while simultaneously being enthralled by the Hip Hop culture. His experimentation with music through the years became an organic blending of those two genres, so that by the time he was a teenager, he was playing guitar and spitting raps. He’s been performing around Dallas for the past five years while writing songs for his new album, and now he’s ready to show the world what he has to offer.

“I haven't seen any big recognition of Punk Rap as a genre,” Cronan said. “I love those bands from the 90s like Everclear and Sum 41 and 311, but I also love Nas and Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick. So as I was looking at the industry today and realizing there weren’t any current bands with that kind of a sound, I realized that if it hadn’t happened already then it needed to. I was definitely the one who could push that type of sound.”

With “Learn How to Smile,” Cronan is bringing a song that is both timely for current affairs of
the world, and perfectly suited to reintroduce the world to the sound of Punk Rap. Cronan said
the message of the song is about putting a strong face on through struggles – not so much
wearing a mask and hiding the inner turmoil, but rather choosing to adopt a positive outlook
and rest in the hope of a better future.

“Shit’s bad but you gotta keep a positive outlook,” he said. “So basically, it’s a song about being
easy. It’s pretty upbeat, and the sound is kind of aggressive. Instrumentally, it’s like a Punk band
– like Green Day or Sum 41 – but then I rap. I picked up the guitar when I was 15 and started
getting into Jimmy Hendrix, but Hip Hop has always been my favorite genre because I just love
the wordplay. I didn’t get into Punk until my late teens, but I just love how fast and simple and
aggressive it is. This song is a blending of all of those things. It’s my favorite type of music to
jam to, and so I decided it’s what I wanted to blend together for my own sound.”

Cronan said the full album further explores that sound and will take listeners on a ride that will
be undeniable in its energy and invitation to let out that angst that all great 90s music was
known to do.

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST KURRLINA TALKS NEW SINGLE "KARMA" AND MORE! Q&A PODCAST


North Carolina rapper with new single ‘Karma’ proves that hard work pays off 

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW

FAIRMONT, NC – Those who live in North Carolina know that there’s a certain way you say “Carolina.” You need to use a thick Southern drawl with the vowels drawn out so that it sounds more like “Kurrlina.” It’s a signature sound that stands out – there’s nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

That’s also true of North Carolina rapper Markel Albritton who embraces his roots by using the stage name Kurrlina Kurrlina. As one would expect, his drawl is forefront as part of his signature sound, but its witty wordplay and catchy hooks are turning heads all along the East Coast these days.

His newest single “Karma” has been getting quite a bit of attention. The upbeat, all-purpose track is perfect for club banging or hanging in the hood. It’s full of energy and pairs with an inspirational message that encourages listeners to pull through the negative things in their lives and turn them into positives.



“I work hard and I’ve been working hard for years,” Kurrlina said. “That, more than anything, is what sets me apart from anyone else. Nobody sounds like me and I don’t sound like anybody
else because my style is distinct. But more than anything, I never quit. I keep going and growing and stay popping, and that’s what this song is about.”

Kurrlina said he first was introduced to Rap through his love of poetry. He became known in high school as a guy who would put a lot of crazy words together to create interesting rhyme schemes, and when he started using that power to share his unique story, people started to pay attention. Today, most of his music is based on his life and the stories he has to share with the world. Those stories are inspired by the things he’s seen or gone through and tinged with his dreams and aspirations for the future.

“I’m talk about real-life, inspirational stuff,” he said. “I represent the struggle and my music is inspired by real events, which is why it relates to people. I’m trying to spread a wave and set a mark on the world. I have what it takes not just to survive but to thrive, and it’s time for people to take notice. We’re just doing what we gotta do to get where we wanna go.”

Over the past decade, Kurrlina has dropped five mixtapes each year, with music that has won him five outstanding performances and put him on the map in a way that has allowed him to open for major artists such as Migos, Rich Homie Quan, Young LA, and Legend Zero. He has also dropped several videos, each gaining hundreds of thousands of plays on his YouTube channel. Now under the management of J’Will with J’Will Entertainment, Kurrlina said he’s ready to take his music to the next level and begin bringing in a wider international audience.

HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST 'JayyTheSinger' TALKS NEW ALBUM "KOLD WORLD" AND NEW SINGLE "ALL NIGHT"

Young Instagram influencer JayyTheSinger  parlays success into debut album ‘Kold World’ 


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW


BILOXI, MS – Hip Hop Recording Artist Javeion Robinson – better known as Jayy The Singer – is taking the success he’s built from his time on Instagram and putting that into his debut album, “Kold World,” which is set to release worldwide across all streaming platforms on May 1.

Raised in Biloxi, Mississippi, Jayy has long been a fan of Hip Hop and R&B. He points to legends like Chris Brown and Drake as his biggest inspirations. He said that a lot of the videos he posted on Instagram over the years were drawn directly from ideas spurred by those two artists.

Now at age 17, this fast-rising young artist is ready to show the world his unique sound and style with his debut album. He describes the project as one that blends Pop and Rap in a way that feels similar to Drake’s style of rapping and singing. More than anything, it’s a project that showcases Jayy’s God-given talents as a vocalist and his standout ability to carry a tune.

“I have real vocal talent and I’m not doing anything in the studio to do tricks to make my voice sound good, or tweak things to make it sound a certain way,” Jayy said. “I’m that artist who has real talent who is trying to make it in the industry. I’m making good quality music and I’m not trying to chase the trends or to be that guy in the limelight. I just want to do what I love and make good music at the end of the day.”

Jayy said he first realized he had the kind of voice that could make it in the industry when he started listening to Chris Brown’s songs and could emulate that singer’s voice. His older sister would listen to Chris Brown all the time, and Jayy said he’d listen and sometimes sing along and think to himself, “I can do that. I can sing, too.” Then in his teenage years Drake became a big influence, and Jayy soon realized he had the kind of voice and writing ability to get some notice. This, of course, led him to begin creating Instagram videos, and soon after he was writing his own songs. 



His talent as a songwriter is on full display with his new album. The debut single, “All Night,” is already starting to turn heads for its ability to get people on their feet and ready to move to the groove. He said it’s the perfect song for this time period as so many people are tired of being cooped up in the house.

“It’s definitely a song that will get you up and moving and dancing,” he said. “More than that, though, it’s a song that will just give people some positive energy during this weird time.”

That dance vibe is one of the standout singles on the album, Jayy said, though there are others that are equally upbeat and will make people bop their heads. Most of the songs speak truth and tell stories from Jayy’s life, though one that he’s particularly proud of is a tribute to one of his sports heroes, Kobe Bryant, who died earlier this year in a helicopter crash. Jayy has played basketball most of his life and said music was second to his dreams of playing professional basketball for many years. But he has gone all-in on his music, and can’t wait for people all over the world to get a taste of what he has to share.
