  • MIDNIGHT BLU is Ready To Go...

    LeFrak City is a breeding ground of champions.  It is the home of N.B.A. greats Kenny Anderson and Kenny Smith and rappers N.O.R.E. of CNN and Akinyele.  Sports and Music were a heavy part of the scene.  If you weren't playing ball or spittin' raps, you were on the block hustling.  Some did all three.  N.O.R.E. introduced us to Musaliny-n-Maze and Final Chapter, while Akinyele brought us R&B group Complexion.  Then four friends decided they would stake their own claim on LeFrak's Hip-Hop scene...Coalition Cartel

    Coalition Cartel members Midnight Blu, Castro, Mendoza and Shottie began recording together.  Midnight was no stranger to the booth, he already had a couple solo mixtapes circulating at this point.  Coalition Cartel began creating a buzz by performing at local shows.  As fate would have it, one of their  performances caught the eye of Naughty by Nature's Kay Gee.  He signed the group to a deal and they recorded two albums together.  

    Shortly after, Midnight Blu's activities outside of the studio got him caught up in the infamous LeFrak City raid.  He would spend a few years upstate.  While he served his time in prison the group attempted to move forward but  Midnight's uniquely aggressive sound was missing.  The group eventually parted ways amicably and the members all pursued solo careers. 

    When Midnight was released from prison he dropped a mixtape titled, "Game Over".  It solidified his ability to make music as a solo artist.  After all, he was no rookie  in this rap game.  His body of work speaks for itself with 6 solo mixtapes and 2 group albums to date. 

    Midnight Blu is ready to give the game what it's lacking...raw energy and real rap.  He named himself Blu for his dark skin and Midnight for the biblical meaning; the time when you discover the difference between theory and reality...and it's about that time! 

    Be on the lookout for his new mixtape, "The Lost Files", slated to drop this winter.  In the meantime you can catch him on the hottest new webseries, "Hater's Animosity", based on the novel by Mark 'Miz' Adams.  It debuts on October 25, 2017 on the YouTube Channel.

  • new artist...DANTE

    Introducing new artist DANTE, out of Los Angeles, California.  His single, "Be My Shawty", is the third release from his upcoming mixtape, "No Hard Feelings", which drops on September 21, 2017.

    DANTE's musical journey began with poetry.  "I've always loved listening to music and writing poetry, then the two kinda meshed together and it led to me free-styling.  I worked up from there to writing verses and rapping in High School.  I had an English teacher who would make me rap every time I was late for class, which was a lot! (laughing).  That helped me improve my skills."

    Life and its experiences, such as relationships and the struggles of trying to make it in the music game, are the sources of inspiration for his music.  Hie is a huge fan of TuPac but also admires Pharell, Kid Cudi, The Gorillaz, Bryson Tiller, J. Cole and Drake.  "Making music excites me and that vibe can be felt through in my music.  It's not just the beat and the lyrics, it's who I am and how I feel while I'm writing and recording.  People always say I have a fresh sound."

    DANTE is excited about chasing his dreams of hitting the BillBoard charts, and the release of his first full body of work, "No Hard Feelings", is just the beginning!  Go check out his music and videos on YouTube.

  • new music...KYLE KNIGHT

    Hip-Hop/Rap is a musical art that is reflective of the artist's life and their experiences.  We are fortunate enough to enjoy different styles of music through someone else's ears, so to speak.  And once in while there comes along an artist who dares to be original...

    KYLE KNIGHT is a lyricist, rapper and producer.  His latest project iaptly named, "THE TRUTH", contains three tracks, "Hey Sister", "Addiction" and "The Truth".  The lead single, "Hey Sister" deals with the issues women face in society.  "Hey Sister" happens to be my favorite track because of the message in it.  I feel like I've been writing this song all my life, incorporating different thoughts, experiences and situations women I know have gone through like tough break-ups, domestic abuse and promiscuity into the lyrics of the song.  I want this song to impact women in a positive way and remind them that they are respected and loved.", KYLE says.  "Addiction" deals with the epidemic of prescription drug abuse among our youth today and "The Truth" speaks about exactly that, the truth about the troubles we face in our communities.  He prides himself on using his music to spread knowledge.

    KYLE has been around music his entire life.  Growing up the son of a music producer, he spent a lot of time in his father's studio. During this time he developed a wonderful ear for music and a passion to create his own.  He learned many things about writing, creating and producing music as he watched his father remix and produce tracks for big names in music like Q-TIP, SWV and Public Enemy.  By the age of six years old KYLE was already writing lyrics to songs and learning to produce tracks!  

    All of KYLE's music is original and contains no musical samples or features from other artists.  He co-produced all tracks with the help of his father and The Rich Source production team.  He draws inspiration for his sound from a broad genre of musical influences including NAS, Michael Jackson, Kendrick Lamar, Adele, Chuck D of Public Enemy and Bruno Mars.  He describes his music as,  "Original, conscious, very lyrical and a lot of fun!  My songs are easy to relax and vibe to with a surprise twist...you'll receive a positive message.  I enjoy making fun records without offending anyone."   

    His new, authentic sound is an exciting breath of fresh air!  Catch KYLE KNIGHT performing these songs live at New York City's HARLEM WEEK FESTIVAL on Thursday, August 24, 2017.

  • New Artist Alert...SAM HVZE


    Meet Sameerah Pittmon and her musical alter ego, SAM HVZE,  from Uptown Philadelphia.
    She fell in love with music at around 6 years old while listening to her mom blasting music through the house.  "She would play everything from Mary J. Blige to Gerald Levert and I'd be right there singing along with her!"

    SAM HVZE began writing poetry at a young age. As the only child living with a single mother, she spent a lot of time by herself. She witnessed the many hard times her mom faced raising her alone. At the same time she faced struggles of her own when she began to question her sexuality. These factors made her relationship with her mother quite tense and they bumped heads often. With no one else to talk to, poetry became her best friend and the outlet she desperately needed to vent her frustrations.

    By the time she reached high school, she transformed into her alter ego, SAM HVZE, converting her poetry into rhymes. Hearing her poetry over beats was fascinating to her!  Now she was able to express herself and display her feelings through music.

    The very first song she recorded was "What I Want", produced by JXHN SCXTT.  When he played the track for her it was love at first sight.  She fell so in love with the track that the lyrics just flowed out.          “I was so taken by the track that it brought out a different side of me. A side that I didn't even know I had. It is definitely the best high I've ever experienced in my life!”

    Since that day she has continued to write poetry and songs and loves to freestyle over her favorite rappers' beats.  "I love music, it’s my passion. I want people to feel good when they listen to my music and to be able to relate to it.  I want heads to turn when my songs play.  I want my songs to be the ones you play on repeat because you never get tired of it.  I want people to get naturally high off of my music like I did when I first heard, "What I Want"."

    SAM HVZE aspires to have longevity in the music industry and heavily influence the game with her unique style.  Check out her latest track, “Freedom of Speech”, currently available for listening on SoundCloud.  Her music has already been featured on DESERT STORM RADIO' which is streamed worldwide to over 37 countries!  This is just the beginning...

  • CHASE PE$O

    Meet CHASE PE$O, a multi-talented rapper, singer,
    songwriter, record producer and director.
    CHASE grew up in a culturally diverse neighborhood
    in Bushwick (Brooklyn, N.Y.) which helped to developed
    his distinctive sound, a hypnotic blend of Jazz, Hip-Hop,
    Funk, Soul and Spoken Word.
    He and a few friends started a Hip-Hop group in mid-2000
    initially naming themselves “Renegades”, then later
    changed their name to “Team Fame”. The group did not
    achieve the success they hoped it would.
    A little disappointed but not discouraged, CHASE PE$O
    decided to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia, where the
    music scene was popping, to pursue a career as a solo artist.
    He put his talent for songwriting to work and before you know it,
    he was a part of a creative writing team alongside AKON and
    Roscoe Dash. This opened the door for his music.
    Shortly after he released his debut EP, “LOVE or LUST”.
    It was a success! After years of grinding CHASE PE$O
    had finally released his solo project.
    He followed up with his sophomore EP, “Glass Jars and
    Butterfly Tops”, in summer of 2015. It was instantly hailed
    an “underground classic”. CHASE’s ability to mix lyricism and
    conscious elements with his sound made him unique.
    In March of 2017 CHASE PE$O and his group M.U.L.A. Society
    independently released a compilation album titled,
    “Welcome to M.U.L.A.ville”.
    They are currently touring the tri-state and East/West coasts
    promoting the album and CHASE’s latest single, “Chico DeBarge”.
    The remix featuring Chico DeBarge himself and fellow Brooklyn
    rapper MAINO will de dropping this summer.
    Check out CHASE PE$O and the M.U.L.A. Society’s music and

  • New R&B sensation…ELLE VIE

     

    A breath of fresh air has just blown our way….
    sultry, smooth R&B singer ELLE VIE.
    If the clouds floating through the blue skies
    on a serene and sun-filled summer day had a
    soundtrack, ELLE VIE would sing it. This singer,
    songwriter and poetess is bursting on the scene
    with an original sound…peaceful vibes.

    She writes her own songs which are mainly based on
    personal experiences and trials she’s faced throughout
    her young life. “Music is just life to me period.
    It fills my emptiness. It's my passion, my purpose.”,
    says ELLE VIE.

    Though ELLE VIE was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. she spent
    the larger part of her childhood between Queens, N.Y.
    and Virginia. Her sound reflects the changes in her
    scenery, no two songs have the same vibe. One track
    makes you feel like your riding on the 95, the next
    track has you vibing on a back block in Queens.

    “Wonderful vibes is what this world needs and that's
    What my music is about. I want my music to bring peace.”,
    ELLE VIE says. She aspires to inspire with her music. “I want to
    make music that people can relate to whether it's about love,
    success or heart-break. I have a message for everyone.”

    ELLE VIE’s videos are currently available for viewing on the
    YouTube channel. Please check out this amazing young
    lady's music. We look forward to an EP coming soon.

  • Beantown's Boss...EDDY FISH

      

     


    Boston has a hidden jewel in its
    underground scene…

    Meet EDDY FISH, trapper turned rapper,
    with more real stories than a New York
    skyscraper. “My music is a dose of reality.
    No third-party tales, this is all ME.”

    EDDY always dabbled and wrote rhymes
    but his focus was on the streets, not the studio.
    That is, until things in the street became
    too perilous and his sixth sense told him to
    fall back. Smarter than most, EDDY followed his
    gut and decided it was the perfect time to take his
    aspirations of becoming an artist seriously.

    He began writing and recording songs for a
    mix-tape he would name, “Real N*ggas Know”.
    It was released on DATPIFF.com and yielded an
    awesome response. It was listened to just
    under 20,000 times! From presentation to
    production, “Real N*ggas Know”, was a solid project.

    This was the confirmation EDDY needed. He was
    ready to get into the music industry and make his
    mark. A self-motivated man, he reached out to
    Yo-Gotti, who was on the come-up at the time,
    for a feature and Yo obliged. “Whole lotta money”
    was the result. The single was viewed over 100,000
    times on YouTube!

    He continued to work with Yo-Gotti and eventually
    toured with him. He names Yo as one of his influences.
    “Going on tour with Yo-Gotti was a great learning experience.
    I had a front row seat to how things work in the industry.
    It gave me a blueprint to follow and I'm grateful for that.”

    EDDY has since collaborated with other big names such
    as Blac Youngsta on the track, “GOALZ” and most
    recently, Gucci Mane on the track, “HECTOR”.
    “Gucci came to Boston looking for an artist who was
    serious about the game to do a feature with him. The town
    pointed him in my direction. It feels good to know that
    people are noticing the hard work I’m putting in.”, said EDDY.

    Clearly his reputation precedes him. He is well-respected in the
    streets of Boston as a boss and in the rap game as a skilled artist on the rise.
    “I want the fans to know that I will not disappoint them. I have a vision for
    this. There are other artists out of Boston trying to break into
    the industry and I would love to be on that first wave. I want to be a part of
    shaping what's coming out of my town to bring everyone together.”
    EDDY’s label, SMG (SkyWay Music Group) is currently in its grassroots stage
    building up to be a major label that can support other artists.

    We have no doubt that EDDY FISH has the talent and the intelligence to
    do exactly what he's envisioned. His music is currently available on
    SoundCloud and YouTube. Check out his latest videos below, “HECTOR”
    featuring Gucci Mane and “GOALZ” featuring Blac Youngsta:

  • What the game is missing...Frankpo

    Introducing FRANKPO, a highly-skilled
    battle-rapper from Queens, N.Y. who has
    some real heat for us this summer.
    His latest free-style, “Free Smoke”, is a welcome
    change for those hip-hop fans who still care
    about actual bars, not just catchy beats and hooks.

    FRANKPO came up in the era of rap when you
    made a name for yourself by battling whoever
    challenged you. “You had to be ready to spit at
    anytime. The hustlers would bet on me all day.
    My skills spoke for themselves and I always got the
    job done.”, said FRANKPO.

    Rap music has gone through many changes since then.
    There is no longer a high-demand for tight bars as
    long as you have an appealing image or fantastic
    social media following. “I love the creative part of
    making music. Anything I put my name on, I have to
    be in charge of, and more importantly, be proud of.”

    FRANKPO is currently working on his mixtape in hopes
    that the third time is the charm. He released two previous
    mix-tapes on DATPIFF, which didn't yield the response
    he was looking for. “I am in a rebuilding stage right now.
    Taking my time and doing things my way. I have a lot
    of great music I want to share with the world and I want
    the fans to keep an open-mind when it comes to judging
    new artists. Expand your horizons and give the music a
    chance, you won't be disappointed!”

    You can check out FRANKPO’s music on SoundCloud and
    DATPIFF. The video for the “Free Smoke Free-style” is
    Currently available for viewing on YouTube. Other snippets
    of his music and free-styles can be viewed on his social
    media outlets, Instagram and Twitter.

  • LOU GOT CASH

     

    New hip-hop sensation LOU GOT CASH is bringing
    his raw energy to the airwaves. His smash single,
    "PIPE DOWN", exploded on the scene with its tough
    beat and contagious hook. Then he dropped the remix
    featuring Remy Boy Monty and took over the radio!
    You won't find a club or lounge that's not bangin it.

    His break-out mix-tape, "That's a great name",
    made us pay attention. LOU GOT CASH's heavy buzz in
    the streets led him to a meeting with DJ SELF of GWINNIN
    ENTERTAINMENT. DJ SELF was impressed with young
    rapper's determination and strong work ethic. So much
    so, that he signed LOU GOT CASH to his record label and
    began promoting him.

    Since then things have gone from zero to sixty! He has
    two singles, "PIPE DOWN" and "MAKE 10" in heavy rotation
    on POWER 105.1 and he is regularly performing in venues.


    LOU GOT CASH has music circulating on SoundCloud, Spotify,
    iTunes/Apple Music and more than 25,000 Twitter
    followers. Not too shabby for a new artist. Look for more
    new music from this energetic rapper out of Queens, N.Y.

  • MARZ MUNNY...headed for the stars

    MARZ MUNNY a.k.a. “Mr. Chow” is an up-and-
    coming rap artist from Brooklyn. He's been writing
    rhymes since he was 14 years old and accredits his
    love of music to his mom and dad. “There was always
    music playing in my house growing up. All different
    types, from the Isley Brothers and Earth Wind & Fire
    to the Notorious B.I.G. and Mary J. Blige.”

    Music has always been a huge part of his life.
    Being raised in a rough part of Brooklyn, MARZ has
    seen a lot and done things that he isn't proud of,
    which eventually led to him being incarcerated.
    But instead of conforming to life in prison, his passion
    for music kept him moving in a positive direction.

    He used the time wisely, writing rhymes and rapping to
    anyone who'd listen. “My love for music kept me going
    when I felt like giving up. Even people telling me, “Yo,
    you sound good man, you're bars are tight!!”, helped push
    me through the darkest days. I know music is what I was
    put on this earth to do.”

    It was there that he developed his alter ego, “Mr. Chow”,
    which signifies his desire to “eat”. In other words, attain
    wealth to feed himself and his family. In prison “chow
    time” is breakfast, lunch and dinner...and his drive to make
    it in the music business had him starving.


    MARZ returned home with that same energy and
    got right to the music. He has released several singles
    on SoundCloud, including the popular collabo with fellow
    Brooklynite, FreshBeatz, titled, “10nb” (10 n better).
    And “Survival”, the dark, soulful tale of MARZ’ struggle to
    make a change in his life and those around him.
    Spit over a smooth, mid-tempo base beat, “Survival”
    speaks to the masses of young brothers fighting to
    create positive opportunities for themselves. He describes
    his music as aggressive and fun. “Some songs have a more
    serious tone but I also like to make fun music that keeps
    people smiling and dancing.”

    The self-described laid-back gangsta is passionate about his
    music and the affect it has on his listeners. “I’ve gone through
    many phases in my life and I'm still transitioning into the best
    version of myself. I have definitely elevated from who I used to be.
    Things I did before don't interest me but the music NEVER
    left me. I want to make good music and spread my good energy
    all around! There’s no better feeling than watching people enjoy
    the music I've created.”

    And his creative juices are certainly flowing as he works on
    his debut mixtape. It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser! And be on
    the lookout for the video for “Survival” dropping this summer
    on YouTube and WorldStar HipHop.
    MARZ MUNNY is definitely headed for the stars and beyond…
    with his music as the soundtrack.

  • N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN present DRINK CHAMPS

     
    DRINK CHAMPS with N.O.R.E and DJ EFN

    Legendary rapper N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN have mixed up a cocktail of laughs and libations that have artists and fans wanting another round!
    They first teamed up in Miami around 2010 as co-hosts on a satellite radio show for Sirius XM titled, “Militainment Crazy Raw Radio”.

    The energy and banter between the two was fantastic! This eventually gave birth to their DRINK CHAMPS PODCAST. It first aired on the CBS Play It Network in January of 2015. It was an instant hit!
    Within the first season they had an astounding 5 million listeners a month.

    N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s DRINK CHAMPS PODCAST was now number one in the country.  This caught the attention of Hip-Hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, who is always looking for ways to expand his empire.  Diddy had already worked with,and had a friendship with N.O.R.E. from his years as a part of rap-duo, Capone-n-Noreaga.

    And just like that it happened...REVOLT TV partnered up with DRINK CHAMPS and added it to their cable network. Less than one year after its birth, DRINK CHAMPS blended from radio into the television world on one of the biggest music channels on cable.  The first series of episodes aired on November 24, 2017.

    DRINK CHAMPS is a movement. It gives artists a new way to communicate information, and an even better way for us to receive it.”, says N.O.R.E.

    The guests are asked questions about their careers in the music business, their successes
    and struggles and random crazy questions from
    N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN.  The old adage, “A drunk heart speaks a sober mind.”, keeps this show interesting, as your favorite artists tell stories about themselves
    and the industry that shock and amuse us!

    DJ EFN adds, "It allows the fans to be a “fly on the wall” during conversations they may not otherwise have heard from their favorite artists.”

    Don't miss your chance to be a part of the experience. New episodes of DRINK CHAMPS air every Friday on REVOLT TV.

  • CHINA MAC MUSIC

     

    CHINA MAC, born Raymond Yu, hails from Brooklyn, N.Y.  He is a shining example of how one can turn his life completely around. MAC, who once led a life of crime and violence,is now an up-and-coming Rap artist, entrepreneur and owner of his very own record label, RED MONEY RECORDS.

    His father was part of the Flying Dragons, a well-known and extremely violent Chinese American gang. He admits that acceptance was the driving force behind him joining the gang.
    His life of crime eventually led to him serving an 11-year prison sentence. “I did a lot of stupid shit. I did a lot of stuff to cause pain and grief for people that didn’t deserve it. For that I regret it. I did some other things where I hurt people that didn’t deserve it. Now as I’m older, in retrospect, I look back at it with an air of ‘I shouldn’t have done that.’ But you live and you learn. If I didn’t do those things I probably wouldn’t be the person I am today.”

    MAC was introduced to hip-hop at 8 years old and quickly fell in love with it. As a teenager, he would write rhymes and and engage in freestyle battles whenever the opportunity presented itself.
    Upon his release from prison, he decided to follow his passion for music. He began recording professionally with his engineer H.D.M.I. at SIGNATURE SOUNDZ STUDIOS in Jamaica, Queens.

    He attracted a buzz almost immediately! All of the time he spent in prison perfecting his emcee skills was finally paying off. The word spread quickly about this Chinese-American rapper named CHINA MAC, who spit bars like a machine gun. This was the beginning of a new chapter in his life.

    The studio became his second home. To date, MAC has recorded songs with some of Hip-Hops best and brightest emcees, such as JADAKISS, DAVE EAST, YOUNG MA and COREY GUNZ.
    His latest single, “Johnny Dang”, will be released on May 25,2017. The video for “Johnny Dang”, as well as his other videos, are available for viewing on YouTube.

    In addition to his RED MONEY RECORDS music label and other business ventures, CHINA MAC continues to tell his story in hopes of inspiring young men to follow their dreams and not sell themselves short with a life of crime. He was recently featured in a documentary on Rikers Island correctional facility, titled “RIKERS”, which premiered November 15, 2017 on PBS’ channel THIRTEEN.

    CHINA MAC is living proof that the mistakes we make in life do not have to dictate the rest of our lives and stop our dreams.
    Be on the lookout for more dope music anfrom Hip-Hop’s next best thing. His latest mixtape “GRINDING” is currently available on BandCamp, SoundCloud and YouTube. Check it out!

  • CHECK THIS ARTIST GOES TO JAMAICA

    BY CTA STAFF


    Embarking on a business trip to Jamaica, and ignoring (just a little bit) all the amazing things the Island has to offer, including the beautiful beaches and food, isn’t easy. But our travel to unearth the next hottest unsigned hip-hop artist in the Island was fruitful. 
    Our travel landed us in the Island’s capital, Kingston, where the bustling neighborhoods are no stranger to good music – or crime. In 2014, the city jumped up to the sixth highest murder rate for any city worldwide. The birthplace of Reggae superstars Buju Banton, Beenie Man, and none other than the legendary Bob Marley has pumped out many hitmakers through the years, making it the perfect place for us to start our digging. 

    And we learned quite quickly it’s the struggle that churns out the smoothest beats. Within minutes after our arrival, the crew realized just how things get down in Kingston.  The rugged, but inviting city provided us quite the experience. The trip started off with a little hiccup when our cabbie’s car literally blew up as we waited to head off to our hotel. But, by chance, the cabbies friend, Winsome, ended up being the key to finding our hot artist. 

    Winsome, a Kingston native with an ear for hip-hop music, hipped us to the area while she assumed the position of our tour guide. She took us to her friends beauty salon and there we got perspectives invaluable to our search before she got us over to our hotel. Two days later Winsome gave us a call and told us about a young artist by the name of FameStylez, whose music encompasses all aspects of the struggles, mystical beauty, and uniqueness of the island. Within hours we had FameStylez on the line and a couple hit records in tow. As a treat to our subscribers, we brought back a couple of his hits to the states.

    Click the link below and let us know what you think about the next hottest unsigned artist. Kingston stand up!
