  • new artist...IMAPROBLEM

    Introducing new artist Imaproblem from Queens, N.Y.

    Imaproblem always loved Hip-Hop music.  He began rapping at age 13, free-styling with his friends in the neighborhood.  When he stepped into a battle his name said it all...the competition knew he was going to be a problem.

    He is a passionate artist who makes music from the soul.  "I'm inspired by the vibes and whatever I'm feeling at the moment so my music has substance."  He describes his sound as an harmonic, yet gritty New York sound.  "My music is a perfect blend of melodies and hard bars.  I've created my own space with this sound."

    When he's not in the studio creating new music with his team, DOPE GANG, he vibes out to fellow artists Travis Scott, Tory Lanez, Future and Meek Mill

    Imaproblem is currently working on his upcoming EP, not yet titled. Earlier this summer he dropped his self-titled mixtape "Imaproblem".  13 tracks of raw rap blended with trap beats and melodic hooks.  It is available for listening and download on Dat Piff.         

    The video for his new single, "Blame it on me" ft. Banga debuted on YouTube on August 2nd and it already has over 5,000 views!  "I want to make an impact with my music.  The market is saturated but I will stand out and become a household name."  

    Look out for new music from Imaproblem this fall.

  • Daz Dillinger x Ki Capone "STARTENDER"

    We expect nothing less than greatness when legends collaborate on a track and that's exactly what happens when Queens meets Long Beach on "STARTENDER" by supreme producer DAZ DILLINGER and legendary emcee KI CAPONE.

    Oddly enough, DAZ and CAPONE started out as enemies on wax back in 1996 when Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound and the late Nate Dogg dropped the song "N.Y., N.Y." then C-N-N and Tragedy Khadafi fired back with "L.A.,L.A.".  Both songs are a part of the historic East Coast/West Coast feud.

    It turns out that CAPONE and DAZ have much more in common than a diss record.  Each artist was 1/2 of a game-changing rap group (CAPONE of C-N-N and DAZ of Tha Dogg Pound) and both have released solo projects outside of their groups and played multiple roles in their respective camps.

    CAPONE served as a primary artist, feature artist, producer, executive producer, engineer and even A&R on over 50 tracks for C-N-N, N.O.R.E., NASDragOn, Genius and DJ Clue.

    DAZ has rapped on, produced and written many of your favorite hits from 2PACSnoop Dogg, Nate Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound, not to mention stepping in to run Death Row Records when Suge Knight went to jail.

    Similarities aside, their differences are what make them a dynamic duo. "STARTENDER", the lead single off of their upcoming collabo album "WANTED", is a bonafide banger!

    CAPONE, still the wordsmith, blazes the track with his husky vocals while DAZ' Cali-style bars and the melodic hook smooth out the explosive track produced by Merc Beatz.

    "STARTENDER" is now available for streaming and download on all digital music platforms.  Go cop that asap!

  • new artist...BOSS PAASTA

    Hailing from the Soundview section of the Bronx is multi-talented new artist BOSS PAASTA.

    PAASTA grew up surrounded by Hip-Hop. His father, two of his uncles and his Godfather were all DJs, so he was exposed to music at an early age. "I've always loved music and listened closely to other artists. Eventually I began trying to rap on my own. I've been writing music since I was a kid."

    At that time it was a hobby that he didn't take seriously. But watching other artists make hits inspired PAASTA to turn his hobby into a full-time job. He is now an artist, the CEO, the A&R and the owner of HUSTLE AVE RECORDS.

    His goal is to not only become a platinum-selling artist but to also break the careers of at least 50 other artists. "It's exciting to be a part of bringing about a new sound, if not from me than from another artist."

    PAASTA describes his original sound as 'New Age Mafioso Rap' and prides himself on finding new ways to be creative. "My sound has new flows and new presentations that haven't been used before. I say some outlandish things on those beats! My style stands out, I'm not the same as anyone else."

    His latest mixtape, "L.I.F.E. 2.5: PAASTA LAVISTA", featuring blazing single, "I Doubt It", is available for listening and download on SoundCloud and DatPiff.

    BOSS PAASTA has enough sauce on his SoundCloud to keep us stirring until the release of his album, "DemiGod".

    Keep an eye on this gifted emcee and entrepreneur, I see a few platinum albums and historical tours in his future!

  • new artist...CASS NOELLE

    Introducing CASS NOELLE new R&B/Soul songstress from Ontario, Canada.

    CASS' inspiration for making music is her life and experiences.  "Life and everything I see around me inspires me. I like to observe whats going on around me, around the world and then reflect on my own life and experiences. I have so much to say and sometimes the only way to be heard is through a 'reputable' platform and music allows me to do that."

    A huge fan of the arts, she has always been creative and loved to sing.  Within the last 3 years CASS decided it was time to take her singing more seriously.  "I would record covers and post them on Youtube which led to taking lessons.  The next thing you know I'm releasing my first EP, "Internal Dialogue", with all original music."

    CASS' distinctive sound sets her apart from the music on the radio and is sure to make her own lane in R&B/Soul music.  "My music is more than a tune and some lyrics, I'm not striving for it to be the next big hit because of its production value. When I write a song I'm hoping people receive the message and that what I'm saying resonates with them.  Sometimes I feel I don’t fit in with the music industry.  It's hard to articulate, because I feel like it could sound like I think I’m better or above those in the industry. Singing is just my way of being heard. I get to sing and people receive my words in that way. I’m not doing it for the money, rewards or other things that may come with working in any industry."

    Her aura is certainly not that of the run-of-the-mill R&B/Soul singer we're used to, she is much deeper than that.  "Hmm, at this point in my career, I guess I consider myself a soul/r&b singer. I like to think about my music as inspirational and thought provoking as well. Although I am grounded in soul every song I write carries a different vibe which I embrace rather than trying to make it fit in with a particular sound. I’m just me and I sing, I don’t imagine being boxed in by a genre."

    CASS' musical influences include the late, great Whitney Houston and Leon Bridges.  "I've been listening to a lot of Whitney Houston lately, but I do really love Leon Bridges. I tend to listen to older music and whatever I come across on Spotify (laughing)."

    CASS NOELLE's goal as an artist is to be seen as more than just a human with a nice voice.  "I want to be able to spark new conversations and changes within people and the world."  She will be releasing a new single later this year to follow up her debut EP "Internal Dialogue" and the video for, "Love You Anyway", was released in July.
