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.

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.
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.

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.

Rapper/Song Writer,GIOVANNI SNOW, was raised in South Jamaica Houses in Queens. He started writing rhymes in his early teens, inspired by his older cousin who was an emcee. Rapping began as a hobby and developed into his passion and his way out of the projects.
SNOW spent countless hours in the studio writing and recording music. He didn't let a day go by without putting pen to paper or touching the mic. Needless to say it was a welcomed distraction from the violence and negativity in the projects. "The more I wrote music and rapped, the more I saw myself grow as an emcee. The more time I spent in the studio, the less time I spent on the block. Music is my passion man, I was made for this."
His first mixtape, "SO COLD", released on DatPiff.com, made underground rap fans take notice. His followed up with, "#SUPAVALID MIXTAPE", whichbecame an instant street classic and solidified SNOW's spot as a respected emcee. Tracks like, "Do It Again" featuring the late, great T.K.O. The People's Champ,"Funerals and Caskets" and "Certified Loopy", had rap sounding like Queens again!
A certified triple threat, SNOW writes his own songs and hooks, creates original hooks for other artists and has even taught himself to compose beats. His unique sound embodies Queens at its finest. He is the voice for those dealing with the everyday struggles of living in the hood and fighting to overcome adversity and poverty to reach success. This is evident on tracks such as, "Where the F--- Is Home" featuring TKO The People's Champ, where they touch on issues such as gang violence, peer pressure and racism.
GIOVANNI SNOW is determined to use his God-given talents to rise above the negativity and claim his rightful place in the rap game. His first two mix-tapes, "SO COLD" and "#SUPA VALID" have been very well received by fans across the 50 states and they are now anxiously awaiting the release of "#SUPAVALID MIXTAPE 2", set to release this year. He is currently promoting his new single, "AMBITION", which is available for purchase and your listening pleasure on iTunes, Spotify, TiDAL and AmazonMusic.
