  • Joyner the new school artist with old school features

    First I would like to Thank Joyner Lucas for making my first interview casual and enjoyable. By the end of the interview I felt like I actually knew him. He was down to earth, funny, and definitely charismatic. I can’t lie though, before the interview even started I was extremely nervous. I hadn’t really heard Joyner speak much and he was on his phone majority of the time. I didn’t really get to feel him out beforehand *PAUSE*. But once the interview started he wiped the crust out of his eyes and began to open up.

    But Joyner was a pleasant surprise. Its always nice to meet an artist who is just as comfortbale within themselves as they appear to be online.  Joyner is passionate about his music. I would definitely describe him as a triple threat. He does it all, the acting, directing, the music. He's definitely an artist that shouldn't be slept on. Joyner takes his business extremely serious and he demands to be apart of the creative process. He's not afraid of a challenge and he wont wait on anyone to go out and get what he wants, he will go out and take it himself.

  • 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 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...

  • 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.
