  • 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.

  • 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.

  • INFAMILLZ...”Bottom to the Top”

    Introducing INFAMILLZ, reppin' Flushing, Queens from top to bottom.

    INFAMILLZ is part of a musical family.  He became interested in music at about twelve years old, watching his older cousin Bully rap.  "I used to write rhymes and practice making songs on my karaoke machine in the living room.  One day Bully recorded me on his computer and it sounded so dope!  I've been rapping ever since."  Mr. Cheeks of The Lost Boyz is another family member who encouraged INFA to rap.  "Cheeks would bring me to the studio and let me record music with him and that boosted my confidence.  I started taking music more seriously then Bully named me INFAMILLIONS because I said I was in it for the millions.  I eventually shortened it to INFAMILLZ." 

    INFA spent the next four years perfecting his sound which he describes as 'New York hip-hop' yet versatile.  Growing up in the early 90's he was mostly influenced by lyricists JadaKissDipSet50 CentFabolous and Lil' Wayne.  "I was too young to understand the vibe NasJay-Z and Biggie had going on at the time.  When i got a little older I listened to their music again and I was able to relate.  Noreaga was from Queens so i definitely felt his music."

    In a time where music lacks originality, INFA is a breath of fresh air.  "I have the talent to mimic any sound or style but I prefer to sound like myself and where I come from. (laughing).  I don't use typical slang or rap about sippin' lean and poppin' pills.  I'd rather be myself, smoke some weed and drink Hennessy.  I rap about my real life and what I do in Queens...Pomonok Houses to be exact.  I want to give the fans an image of my true self through my music.  My ultimate goal is to sound like an artist that would want to listen to."

    INFA is starting the New Year off right.  His latest mixtape, "BOTTOM OF THE TOP" drops in January of 2018, followed by a collaboration project titled "IN FLUSHING WE TRUST" with his partner H aka OCHO.  INFA and H are solo artists and part of the group DONZ (Donz Depend On Noone).  INFA and legendary rapper ROYAL FLUSH have a new single as well.  "I named my mixtape "BOTTOM OF THE TOP", because I am on top of my game yet I still have a long way to go.  As for the collabo's title, it speaks for itself.  I'm reppin' the town that made me."

    INFAMILLZ is spending his holidays on the grind at Hall of Fame Studios with super engineer, Teardropz, putting the finishing touches on his upcoming EP, "SHOULDA BEEN SOONER".  "I chose this title because the dedication, work ethic, time, money and energy I've invested in my music up to this point 'shoulda brought me success sooner."  No worries young bull, something tells me it won't be much longer...
