  • Next up...PLAYBOI CARTI

    Atlanta, Georgia has yet another talented artist on the rise...PLAYBOI CARTI, formerly known as Sir Cartier.  He released his first mixtape "Young Misfit" on TFZ/Awful Records back in 2012 with no success.  It didn't even make a dent on the charts.

    Passionate about his music and refusing to give up, he continued to write and record music.  He even changed his name to PLAYBOI CARTI.  Three years later his perseverance would pay off.  In 2015 he gained fame with the release of his non-album single "Broke Boi" and began collaborating with top acts like Lil' Uzi Vert and ASAP Rocky.  This led to his appearance on the ASAP Mob's debut album, "Cozy Tapes Vol.1: Friends".  

    CARTI's association with the two musicians/models would give him the opportunity to add another skill to his resume.  He was invited to swag the runways with Lil' Uzi and ASAP in VFiles and Raf Simons fashion events.  CARTI even walked in Kanye West's "Yeezy Season 5" fashion show!

    Things were moving in a great direction.  He appeared on over 20 tracks as a feature with artists such as Quavo & OffSet from MigosGucci ManeTravis ScottJoey Fatts21 Savage and Kodak Black.  In 2016 he was signed to AWGE/Interscope Records and began working on a new mixtape.  His eponymous sophomore effort, "PLAYBOI CARTI", not only dented the charts, it debuted at number 12 on the US BillBoard 200!  Fifteen tracks of heat including collabos with Lil' Uzi VertLeven Kali.  

    His fans describe his music as 'the soundtrack to a mindless good time'.  And a good time is definitely had by ALL whenever his popular single, "Magnolia" (produced by Pi'erre Bourne) is played!  It is CARTI's biggest hit to date, peaking at number 29 on the US BillBoard Hot 100.  XXL Magazine named PLAYBOI CARTI one of the ten in their "2017 Freshman Class", a huge honor for an upcoming artist.  He is currently touring the states with Pi'erre Bourne and Young Nudy.  Catch him in a city near you!

  • 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
    videos on iTunes, Spotify and the YouTube channel.
