FamousLV Queens gives us the PROS & CONS of the "AALIYAH MOVIE" READ NOW!!!

 

 

My review on The AALIYAHMOVIE on Lifetime television via Wendy Williams:
After 13 years, it was exciting to find out that a television movie about the singer Aaliyah going to be on Lifetime. I heard some of the controversy behind the making of the film; that her parents had a hard time allowing a film to be done, a famous artist Zendaya, backed out of the main character role, the actors and actresses were not good picks for the people who they were portraying but, I just wanted to see what "they" came up with and enjoy the opportunity of seeing her career played out on screen.
 
Opinion: The movie was simple but I liked that they attempted to present events of her career in a respectful way. Alexandra Shipp did a good job at trying to show Aaliyah's dominate side and although her voice is not as powerful or magnetic as Aaliyah's, Alexandra did a good job singing and performing. I felt that even though the actors and actresses did not look like the original artist that they were portraying they still did well with their roles in spite of the pressure.
 
Pros: The movie presented Aaliyah's career positively and with respect to the family. Alexandra Shipp performed and acted well. The movie showed how much Aaliyah loved music and her family and it also showed how smart and forthcoming she was in her career.
 
Cons: The actors did not "look" like the artist they were portraying and some of them did not act as well as was expected. At the end of the movie the screen read that Aaliyah died at age 25, we all know she was only 22. The movie ended simple - too simple. I could have been a controversy situation to do a scene on how it ended but if it was possible they should have played it out.
 
 
Overall, I was glad to see that Aaliyah is still in our hearts and on our minds. She will forever be missed and loved by many because she was a young-fresh looking super star that broke stereotypes and dominated the industry!

J.NIBB give UrbanNews702 the game plan start to finish !!! READ NOW

 (UCM)...  How did you get the stage name J-NiBB

(J.N)... The name J-NiBB actually came into play based off my real name, Josh Niblick! When I was thinking of artist names to be represented as that came to mind, thought to myself it makes it original and easy to remember and I definitely didn't want to be another "Lil" or "young" whatever

(UCM) ... Your bio says your from Piqua, Ohio, how do you feel that living there has cultivated your musical style?

(J.Nibb) Piqua isn't that big of a city, there's alot of country. Just growing up always around hip-hop music and hearing it all the time from my brothers room its just always been what I've liked and I fell in love with the rhythm and style! I feel my style is definitely unique because I make varieties of music, if you want a dance song I have that, if you want a pump up or club song I got that, if you want the real music with real emotion to get the tears going I got that. I never want to be labeled as JUST a rapper, I want to be known as an artist, generally yes "rap" is what I do, but I want the people to realize I'm deeper then JUST THAT, I'm not in it for and all about the money and fame, I'm truly here for all the people who support me and the kids who are growing up who don't have alot and that feel lost, I'm extremely proud to be able to be the one who they tell "Yo man I always listen to your music to put me in a better mood or pick me up when things aren't going great" or just whenever they need it. I thank God for the blessing honestly. But anyway totally off topic lol, I appreciate Piqua though because without it I could be talking about a totally different story and making music that even I don't like, because your surroundings play a HUGE part in your everyday life and mental outlook on life as well.

(UCM) ... Do you write out your lyrics? Do you ever change a song’s lyrics in live sets?

(J.Nibb) ... Yes, I definitely write all my own lyrics, and any rapper who doesn't I feel is lame and they're not truly a full artist. It's lazy and taking credit that isn't yours, it's dumb and it doesn't make you any better either! Live sets, I have changed the lyrics before, but only because it was maybe a new song and the 1st time performing it and I threw some different words in because I forgot mine haha, but that's the thing, you got to be able to be good to do that, if you just freeze up and can't back yourself up and continue to be on beat without anyone knowing you messed up then you probably shouldn't be on stage lol.

(UCM) ... Who are your biggest musical influences growing up?  Who do you respect in the game right now?

(J.Nibb) ... Once I started really listening to Hip-Hop My biggest musical influence was Luda, he has been my influence since I heard my first Hip-Hop song by myself which was his track "Move Bitch" and ever since ive been attached to his unique style and wordplay! Then as I grew with the music and expanded out I of course love listening to Eminem for his crazy wordplay as well, then theres Twista, Lil Jon, Biggie, I really like alot of old school music like Rakim, Run DMC, and many others.

Who I respect now in the game, that's tough because there's a BUNCH of suckas out! Buuuut, I like Hopsin & Dizzy Wright, Snow tha product is tight, MGK (salute Ohio), ummm just recently started listening to more of Schoolboy Q he's pretty dope, OHH who just came back swinging Iggy Azalea, she's really dope. I'm sure there might be a few more, but there's not too many I listen to heavy.

(UCM) ... What has been your most memorable experience so far as an artist?

(J.Nibb) ... Man, now that's a hard one.. I would have to honestly say meeting and coming in contact with all the down ass people I get to call my fans/fam. I've seriously met soo many awesome people so far and for me being able to meet them and hear their story's and share a passion together so much that they literally love what I do to the point where they have my back no matter what is amazing to me!! Like, we are connected in our own world through this music and nothing can break our bond. I seriously love them all and all the new ones coming in, they don't know it and I never said it before in any interview, but.. they truly saved me!

(UCM) ... Where do you usually gather songwriting inspiration? What is your usual songwriting process?

(J.Nibb) ... What I usually do and definitely have been doing more lately is really writing from the heart, it just creates the best music and it's real! My process isn't really a process, I pretty much can write wherever as long as it's pretty quiet, most of the times I write my best stuff at night before I go to sleep, I don't know why lol, but I do.

(UCM) ... Do you think that online presence is important for fans to find you and critics to find your music to write about?

(J.Nibb) ... Yeah, all the online stuff I feel now days is essential, first of all it makes things alot simpler and easier to get heard, but don't get me wrong because it's still definitely a challenge, but yeah I feel if you can't manage yourself online and push your self for free then what are you going to do when it comes time to physically making moves in real life ya know?

(UCM) ... What do you think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?

(J.Nibb) ... I feel the online music is very important and really helps the "word" get out, if your fans aren't simply clicking a "share button" for you to share things then that's not good, you need to get loyal fans that will take that 10 seconds out of their day to say "Yo check out this artist he's tight" or whatever.

Yes, I do give music away free, but not all the time, this is my business and just like anyone else, they don't go to work and get paid from hugs and high fives right? They get money for what they produce. But I'll do remixes to some tracks and put them up on YouTube or freestyles to continue to keep giving the people something new! If you don't they could just grow tired of you quick, which sucks because all the effort in time put into music, it's a shame when after you release something how some just listen and already want the next thing, some don't take the time to appreciate it.

(UCM) ... Since everyone was a startup once, can you give any smaller or local bands looking to get gigs and airplay some tips?

(J.Nibb) ... No matter what, always be yourself 1st and foremost! Then really hustle like no other, it's all up to you and how bad you really want it, have God first in your corner leading the way and just put in crazy work hours as much as you can, when you think you did enough, do more! You can never have enough promotion. Hit up the local promoters and ask them to do shows, flood the social sites with videos and music of yourself, don't accept NO as an answer.

(UCM) ... What are your future goals as an artist?  Who would you like to work with?

(J.Nibb) ... I want to be on my own tours and traveling the nation, then making them tours global! I have alot of business adventures I'll be getting into from various different things as well;)

I want to continue to grow our own Label BME Music Group and possibly sign to a major if the contract is right to better us all as well. There's many more goals, I'll list more if we do another interview;)

Artist who I would like to work with, umm.. I'll just give a list.

Ludacris, Eminem, Rev Run, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Iggy Azalea, Justin Bieber, Monica, Mariah Carey, Megan Good.. Oops! Never mind we're talking music;) Lol! Janet Jackson, Brittany Spears since she grew her hair back out lol, 2pac if he does come back this year. I think I'd make something sweet with Pink, Lincoln Park, Lil Jon, etc etc.

(UCM) ... Anything you would like to share, from new merch to upcoming shows/tours or songs/albums?

  1. Go get my new cd out now Sleepless Nights & Early Mornings on iTunes! Or hit me up on a social site to get a autographed hard copy!

UrbanNews702 speaks to King Jus Wurk when we say Brooklyn's own !!! we really mean it READ !!

  1.  

    (UCM) ... Introduce yourself.  How did you get the stage name Khing Jus Wurk?

(KJW) ... I am Frank D. Monroe born at Kings County Hospital Brooklyn N.Y from Redhook. I have been in foster care, group homes, juvenile dentition and even county jails. Traveled all around the country and not to those pretty places you see in the brochures. I am Wurk, they keep telling me I am going to fail and I just continue to prove them wrong. My name comes from my life, what I believe. Nothing in life will be given to you; you have to work for it. And the spelling just makes it easier to distinguish myself from the rest.

(UCM) ..  It says your from Brooklyn, New York, how do you feel that living there has cultivated your musical style?

(KJW) ... Being from NY (Redhook Brooklyn BTW) my word play will always be sharp that’s what we are known for, our lyrical content, but having been in the southern region for a while I have adapted and merge both styles into something of my own.  Every word is meant and from the heart, drawn from actual experience. You will never hear me talk about anything that I don’t know about. At the same time, I want my audience to realize I’m having fun with this. I enjoy what I do, and I feel that the tracks that I am on do just that.

(UCM) ... Do you write out your lyrics? Do you ever change a song’s lyrics in live sets?

(KJW) ... Yes, I write all my lyrics. If I said it, I wrote it. Sometimes you might be doing a set and get twisted it happens more often then not, but you can never let them see you sweat so of course I have changed a song’s lyric once or twice before.

(UCM) .. Who are your biggest musical influences growing up?  Who do you respect in the game right now?

(KJW) ... Growing up was Jay-Z, Tupac, B.I.G, LL Cool J, TI, and Dipset. It’s weird now that I’m saying it, but those are the main artists I listened to growing up. You actually can tell, listening to my flow…LMAO Folk in the game now…well hats off to Meek Mill, Lil Boosie, Yo Gotti, Drake and the homie Childish Gambino (don’t sleep).

(UCM) ... What has been your most memorable experience so far as an artist?

(KJW) ... My first show…. there’s no feeling like being on stage, the crowd rocking out with you…in your zone, that’s when I knew it was real. Hell yea I want the money and the fame, who wouldn’t? Thing is, I’m willing to Wurk for it. Give the folk what they come for, a show!

 

(UCM) ... Where do you usually gather songwriting inspiration? What is your usual songwriting process?

(KJW) ... I gather my music from my life, music has and still is a way for me to express my feelings.  My life isn’t worse than anybody else’s, it was my life and this is how I let go. How I let people know what’s going on in my mind, how I view the world. When I’m writing I let it flow, you can’t force a track out. That’s how I feel, if you do it isn’t natural. Shouldn’t have to think too hard if you speaking truth and what you know. I just put pen to pad, and let it flow.

(UCM) ... Do you think that online presence is important for fans to find you and critics to find your music to write about?

(KJW) ... Happy you asked that question. I accept technology and everything that it stands for. I like having the connection with people, knowing that they see how I living and how hard I’m working. I use every avenue possible to reach people to make it easier. I’m not an artist stunting or hiding anything. I really started from the bottom you feel me, so my online presence is exactly what you see. Me. You gotta be honest today its more than music people wanna know who you are. So it’s detrimental.

(UCM) ... What do you think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?

(KJW) ... Yea you should, but not always. As an artist you need to know when you can and cannot make that sacrifice, it’s your material, the choice is completely up to you. It’s true you have to pay for your copyrights, publishing, recording, mastering etc., so sometime you got to take the lost just so you can get ahead.

(UCM) ... Since everyone was a startup once, can you give any smaller or local bands looking to get gigs and airplay some tips?

(KJW) ... There’s no such thing as “cant”, just find a different way. Everybody doesn’t have to sell, drugs, bang, twerk…do you, whatever it is. Just make sure its all you and you believe in it.  Also try and become a star before you act like one folk heads is way ahead of their career. Seriously humility will get you far.

(UCM) ... What are your future goals as an artist?  Who would you like to work with?

(KJW) .. I want to go major, would like my opportunity to show the world what I have to offer. I want to do it all, aren’t enough hours in the day. Don’t see how people complain when they reach to a point  

World tours, sponsorships, merchandising even start a few charities. Once I get in motion, I want it to be known that “Wurk” is more than a name; it’s what I do! People I wanna work with Childish Gambino, Yo Gotti, Meek Millz, LL Cool J and Jay ( tell your guys to hit me directly, not hard to find) #Wurkkk

UrbanNews702 Speaks To Barrett Hustle about his up and coming and him up and going READ !!!

 
Barrett was born 1983, in the Corpus Christi neighborhood of Hillcrest. As an only child to a single mother, living in a full house with grandparents, uncles, aunts, and his great grandfather he learned early on what it means to "make things work" by observing everyone do what they could to better the FAMILY'S living situation. A few years later, an uncle got drafted to the NFL and the family moved to North side Houston, TX in Greenspoint. 

 

 
In 5th grade, the biggest blow of his life hit Barrett. Coming home after SCHOOL, he found out his mother was gone due to suicide. Forced to be stronger, he vowed to never quit no matter how challenging life gets, and that he would make a way to be happy and healthy.
 
Barrett didn't start writing rhymes until his senior year in HIGH SCHOOL. His friend Slugga was always the aspiring rapper, and Barrett would eventually fell into the mix as a hobby.
 It was in the service as a U.S. Marine deployment in Iraq when his love for music would brew and turn into a something he wanted to pursue seriously. Upon the end of his contract, Barrett enrolled into Full Sail Real World Education to get a more in depth understanding of music, sound, and the environment surrounding the industry. Earning a DEGREE IN Recording Arts, Barrett never let up on writing lyrics and began composing his own beats. 
 
“If I could sum up my music in one word, it would be perseverance. Although the struggle can seem constant and there's so many temptations and obstacles, keep pushing for your goals."
Today, Barrett stands as an influential artist that strives to encourage others to explore and reach their potential. He's an advocate for a healthy lifestyle and is passionate about his pursuit of the arts, physical and MENTAL HEALTH. Having many life lessons to remind him of the beauty of life, he pushes everyday to remain connected in hopes of motivating others.

210West aka Sympton is not just doing music he's doing the music business READ NOW !

210West aka Symptomalso known as Polygraph Symptom, is not only the founder and CEO of 210west Entertainment, he is also a rapper, producer, engineer, videographer, DJ, radio personality, and actor. At a young age (fifth grade) he recorded a song: “it was on a  home stereo  with regular janky headphones.” Even though the equipment was minimal, it was just enough to spark interest in what would later become  a career . As a teenager in the late 1990s, Symptom started competing in freestyle battles and began to take recording seriously. Shortly after playing  college  basketball, he started performing in local, legendary venues like the House of Blues. 

He later became frustrated paying for studio time and beats. That frustration led Symptom to invest in his own equipment. He began to teach himself to produce and engineer and now produces for himself as well as for many others.

Vegas Mob Records CEO Reginald Reggie - Reg Newson "Is The Guy to Know in Las Vegas" READ NOW !

(WM) aye whats good with ya ? ...... now Reggie how did you get started ? • •

 

(RN) ...I got started with putting out a CD under 111 Entertainment and I saw how people responded to it. Also because I'm a lover of music.. Music is a huge part of the way I live my life and how I conduct myself in everyday living. • • ......

 

(WM) ... what made you want to get in to the music business ?

 

(RN)... Myself and my brothers grew up performing at family Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and other family functions. I enjoyed having everyone focus their attention on us while we entertained them. I was also a good singer during those times until puberty set in. • • ........

 

(WM) ... now you started 111 Ent. in the mid 2000 doing shows and promoting artist right how was that experience ?

(RN) ... Yes I did. It was during 05' - 06'. It was great. I had a ball putting on venues and giving artist the opportunity to showcase their talents and assist with introducing them to the world. It was also hard because there were so many different personalities it was hard sometimes trying to mesh them together and actually get them to work as a team, and sometimes it was a head ache. But for the most part it was fun and exciting and a wonderful learning experience.

(WM) ... what did you learn from working with artist at that time?

(RN) ... I learned working with all the different personalities you have to approach each one differently. You can't treat them all alike and all of them aren't going to understand the vision and goal you have and see for them all.

(WM) ... now you have Vegas Mob Records why that name and what does Vegas Mob Records mean & goals ?

(RN) ... Vegas MOB Records (VMR). I named the label that because I wanted the label to be family oriented. What I mean by that is I wanted everyone to feel like we were all family. I'm a true native of Las Vegas and I grew up when the MOB was still running Vegas. My mom worked at the Sahara Hotel on the Strip and during that time the MOB was still sort of running things. Anyway... They would have Christmas Parties and give Ham's and Turkey's to all the employees that worked there, but actually took care of them when they were in need of help, like you would in your own family... So as a record label (Vegas MOB Records) means FAMILY. That's how each one of us sees each other. Our goal is to create Great Music, help each artist that is in our family achieve their lifelong dream in every way we can, assist in helping them become successful. We're Changing The World Through Music

(WM) ... now what do you look for in a artist to sign ?

(RN) ... What I look for in an artist is... 1. Personality and Attitude. I believe every artist must have a great personality because they need to be able to interact with their fans and be approachable. They must have a great attitude because as we all know this business is not kind to anyone, so they must be able to maintain a great attitude during the good and bad times. 2. Optimistic. You have to believe that no matter good or bad things are going, everything will always turn out to be great. 3. Coach-able. You need to have an open mind about everything and be willing to learn new things, because music like computers changes daily and if you're not willing to change you'll always be in the same place. You must give yourself the chance for growth. 4. Loyalty. Artist must be loyal to the label they are signed to because they are doing everything in their power to help you succeed. If you can't be loyal then you've already lost the battle and the war. Don't even set foot on the field. 5. Passionate. Artist need to have a passion about their craft and strive to be the best at what they do and practice it on a daily. 6. Self Motivation. You must be able to motivate yourself every day to be the best. You can't depend on others to keep you motivated. If you don't motivate yourself then no one else is going to motivate you. 7. Determination. You must be determined to be the best no matter what obstacles my present themselves, you must be will to forge through them. 8. Accept constructive criticism. You must be able to accept someone telling you that this needs to be better or you need to do that this way etc., because again the music industry is not nice and brutally honest. 9. Progression and Achievement. What have you done prior to talking with me. (i.e. how many shows have you done, what is your fan base like, how many videos have you done, how many cd's have you recorded and distributed). What have you done for yourself. 10. Be Humble. You have to be humble in this business because there are a million other artist that may not be as good as you, but they stay humble and have or are in the 9 categories explained above. 11. TALENT. You need to have some sort of talent. No matter how many of the other things that I've mentioned you have or are, you must have some sort of talent. I can go on and on about what I look for in an artist, but these are some of the important ones for me..

(WM) ... who are the artist on the label now?

(RN) ... Right now we have 4 artist and 1 in house producer. Mic Brim (Hip Hop), Keith Gorden (Hip Hop), Tony Boy (Hip Hop), Neaque (R&B Female Vocalist) and Vargo (In-House Producer) (Vargo Beat's).

(WM) ... can you explain what each artist bring to the game ?

(RN) ... Mic Brim brings you the conscious story telling rap. He speaks on the truth in a form which all can understand in all age groups.

Keith Gorden brings you the party, club, teenage way of life style music. Tony Boy gives you a dark, rebellious, smooth club, hardcore vibe.

Let's just say Tony Boy will have a genre created for his style of music and we'll leave it at that.

Neaque gives you that soulful, sweet, strong women style of R&B.

Vargo... Well let's just say he's well on his way to being the music industry's hottest producer. With Out A Doubt... Each and every one of our artist bring the streets to you in a totally different way, but they all have true meaning to their music... I know everyone will love it...

(WM) ... what would you say is the toughest thing about running a label ?

(RN) ... I would say the toughest thing for me about running a label is sacrificing the time I can't spend with my family and not being able to do some of the things I want to do because I have to be somewhere else conducting business. It's hard now but I know all the time I'm sacrificing will pay off in the end and I'll be able to do what I want.

(WM) ... we know Las Vegas has a lot of indie labels here what sets your company from the others ?

(RN) ... VMR is different because we are family and we treat each other as such. We have a team of executives which their only goal is to promote, market and brand our artist. Our artist are able to express themselves creatively. They're able to assist in how their projects are put together, promoted and marketed. Our door is always open for suggestions as far as how the company can excel and progress. They all know that when they are tired of performing or recording they will be executive board members. And most importantly we have are a structured company and we have the best talent..

(WM) ... you've aligned you're company with well know publicist Mona Fletcher how did that come to happen ?

(NR) ... I met Mona Fletcher through Keith Gorden's cousin, Josh Dismond (Dismond Beat's) who is a producer. Josh and I have built a relationship and after speaking with him for several hours over the phone he set up a meeting for Mona and I to talk. Once we set down and spoke with each other for about an hour and a half we clicked and that was the beginning of a great work relationship. Mona is fantastic and has proven to be one of if not the best PR Specialist in the business. I had also heard of her prior to Josh and I speaking from another source that I talk with on a regular. Who's name will stay unmentioned.

(WM) ... Vegas Mob Records is hosting a Golf tournament now that's something you don't see indie labels do good looking explain more about that ?

(RN) ... VMR is hosting our 1st Annual Breast Cancer Golf Tournament Fundraiser on October 19th & 20th, 2013, at the Las Vegas Golf Club on 4300 Washington Ave. I've wanted to have a golf tournament for a while and had it all written down and planned out, so when Mona came aboard we were talking about events we could have and host and I told her how much I wanted to do this. When I told her I wanted to do it for Breast Cancer she was even more excited about making this event possible, so some calls were made and we teamed up with LVGC and they were ecstatic about the idea and jumped on it. We want to give back to the community and this is just one of many community fundraisers we will be having. And trust me... we have many more to come.

(WM) ... what does Vegas Mob Records have plan for the future ?

(RN) ... Our future plans are to create great music and produce some of the world's greatest artist. We will be a household name..

(WM) ... are you look for any type of artist right now?

(RN) ... Right now we're ok with the 4 artist we have, but once we get to a point we want to be at, which is not that far, we'll be looking for a male R&B singer, Rock Band, Country Band and Pop Stars along with a couple other acts to include dance groups. We don't want to be known for just hip hop and r&b, but all genres.

(WM) ... what would tell about sending music in to you or any record company ?

(RN) ... I would say if you're sending music into us or any other label, if you want to be taken seriously your product should look professional. Don't send in a Maxwell CD with hand written titles and songs. Spend the time and money to get an album cover printed up, Mix and Master your music and have it duplicated on a CD Professionally. 1st impressions are lasting impressions. Make sure your presentation makes us or someone else want to listen to it. Also make sure your music is copy right protected. Most labels will not even listen to your music if it's not, especially producers. Just be professional. If you want to be treated like one act like one.. If you've followed all of these, feel free to email your submissions to our A&R Rep. Rick G at rickg@vegasmobrecords.com

(WM) ... any last words for the people ?

 

... Yes... Don't let anyone deter you from your dreams. Stay positive, work hard and keep working towards your dreams. Make sure you have a vision and a dream. See it, believe it, believe in it, and never give up.

Rap artist "Ill Ru Mintai" tell's what happen with"Kaine Sosa" his take on why he feel he won the battle and feels he's the in the top 10 of the AHAT battle LETS READ NOW !

Las Vegas battle sence is heating up big tyme, rap/battle artist "Ill Ru Mintai" (to the left with Country Black of 3 6Mafia) is right in the middle of it after the battle with "Kaine Sosa" things have been "on and crackin" like they say .Ill Ru Mainati is one of the best in the battle circuit speaks about the battle and tell his side on why two friends end up going head to head so lets get to it ... READ NOW!  

 

 

 

(WM) What made you pick the name Ill Ru Minati?   
    

My mom gave me the nickname Ru and it carried on from home to high school when I started rapping.  I've always been known as Ru until I moved to Vegas after I got out of the Air Force.  I took on the name Ill Ru Minati from joking around with one of my homies and decided to keep it because it's easier to find me when I'm looked up on the internet.  People just call me Ill, Ru, or Ill Ru though.

How long have you been on the scene as far as being a Vegas artist?
     I've been on the scene since I moved to Vegas, which makes 3 years.

 

(WM) How did you and Kaine Sosa meet?
    

I met him through a friend, Terry Walker, who I worked with on Nellis Air Force Base.  Terry was also our manager for a while under DeLandis Entertainment.

 

(WM) Did you bring Kaine to the AHAT battle?
    

[Laughs] I really don't know the significance of asking this question but I'll say that we talked about coming to AHAT for more exposure with our music.  I joined first and initially he wanted me to talk to OD (the CEO of AHAT) to give word that he was interested in joining, but that is all I did.  The rest was up to Kaine but those bars about that subject were nothing more than part of the set up for my punchline.  It's rap.  There's no need to pay so much attention to such an unnecessary detail.

 

(WM) How do you feel you rate in the AHAT battle ?
    

I would rate myself at an 8, which is pretty good for being a rookie in the league, but I definitely have room for improvement.

 

(WM) Who do you see as a threat in AHAT or any other League?
    

I don't see anyone as a threat, but there are some good competitors in all divisions in AHAT and all other rap battle leagues.  My biggest focus is leaving a legendary mark in battle rap history, so it doesn't matter who is put in front of me.  When it comes to being in that ring or on the stage, any stranger, friend, or foe will instantly become a meal.

 

(WM) How did this misunderstanding with Kaine come into play? 
    

From my end I didn't know there was an issue until I came back from a battle in Utah and saw that he had a lot of negative things to say about me on Twitter.  I was accused of being fake for making moves with Hidden Mind and Super Blog Team, which I told him those moves I was making would be opening doors for not only myself but for him as well.  To correlate with his side of the story I guess someone was in his ear telling him that I would be getting quite personal in the battle and supposedly someone from SBT was stabbing me in the back (I asked Kaine for proof of both allegations and to this day they still aren't provided).  He tried calling me but he knows I'm hard to reach on the phone. Everyone knows that.  I'm a busy man: I have two children, a woman to please, a full time job, and I'm in college, in addition to making music and moves for a bigger future.  Apparently he took the rumors to be true and foolishly ran with it without exercising the options of texting or reaching me through any of the social sites, but had time to tweet subliminal insults and threats.  At the end of the day it's crazy how easy it was for someone to influence him to make him feel like I turned on him. And that someone has only known him for a few months in comparison to him and I knowing each other for three years.  But that's life.  Friends come and go and I've already known who my rounds were well before the situation came about.

 

(WM) Do you feel like you won this battle and why? 
    

I know that I've won! [laughs] The poll reflects that.   But I won by a slight margin, which tells me I let it be too close.  Lesson learned in preparation for my next battle.  But he helped me win by overperforming and exceedingly missing with some of his punchlines.  Seems like he was more focused on sending insults than them really making sense.  What also killed it for him was him and his girl not having the decency to respect the MC and not talk during your opponent's rounds.  Everyone knows that is highly frowned upon in battle rap.  He was too reactive to things I said, and in retrospect you can see how I held my composure throughout the battle.

 

(WM) Whats going on beside this battle? 
    

More battles!  I'll be up against A22 on October 4th and Chozen Profit on October 19th at the first ever rap battle convention in The D Casino.  Then in November I will be facing Don Trill in Cali.  That will make a total of 6 battles in one year if everything goes according to plan. In between all of that I will be making music with my Hidden Mind and SBT bruhs. 

 

(WM) How would you like to end this story?
    

I'd like to thank all of my supporters and fans for all of the love!  Stay tuned for more good music and dope battles.

 

(WM) Aye RU thank you for your time like always we wish you the best.

Reggea artist Matt U jhonson bring's "POP Reggea" to the game ! , Read what this singer / songwriter has going on !

(WM ) ... hey how are you today?

 

( MUJ) ... i'm doing well today brother.

 

( WM ) ... 1st off ill like to say great song "Reflections" who the producer and are you doing the rap on there ?

( MUJ) ...Thanks for the big ups, Garrick Jordan out of Memphis Tennessee produced that record and I wrote the record. And the Hip Hop artist on that track is Kadeve from ill live Capitol records.

( WM ) ...  you have a range in that song that covers so many styles , its easy to see you've listen to more than just reggae growing up , in fact what we know you're from the east coast but now in the west which coast did you spend you're child hood ?, and how was it musically ? 

 

( MUJ ) ... I spent my child hood on the east coast in NYC, and grew up in Staten Island one of the five boroughs. I was born into a culturally diverse family being from a Jamaican mother and a black American father, I was raised around all sorts of music from reggae,jazz, rhythm and blues and of course hip hop.

 

( WM )... what would you label yourself far as reggae artist style  danchall , chat ? and what was the 1st song called you recorded ?

 

( MUJ ) ... Yes I would consider my self a pop reggae artist meaning I blend pop and dance hall sounds of reggae. The first song that I recorded was called reality in a Staten Island studio in the 10304, but the first song I was noticed for was a track called jumping.

( WM )... when did you hit the west coast ? and why the move to LA ?

 

( MUJ ) ... Actually my parents have a home in the southwest so I was there for a year first then moved out to Los Angeles, California after that. The reason I moved to la is because I never tried that market before and I had connects there that I need met in person, not to mention more opportunities and exposure.

(WM ) ... You also are a song writer , now how do you say this song isn't for me after you wrote it lol ?

 

( MUJ ) ... Yes I am a song writer and I say a song isn't for me when the vibe isn't fitting what I'm doing at the moment and I pass it on.

( WM ) ... who have you work with ?and have you every sold a song in the end you heard it and was like I could've done it way much better ?

 

( MUJ ) ... I am currently working with Al West a music producer for Sony records. And as for selling a song to another artist I usually sell it for a reason because I know that artist can do it justice.

( WM ) ... any new music coming ?

 

( MUJ ) ...I have a new single coming out called gwan fight (my life) with Cirious deluxe from San Clemente he is producing the new Steel pulse record now as well and I'm also working on my ep "never give up".

 

( WM ) ... before we any last words ?

Whole Click Clothing hit's Las Vegas !

Back in the days you had to have alot of money to start a clothing line. Indepent clothing lines seem not to have a chance if they dindnt have major artist behind it. With the invention of the internet indie has been the new norm not only for music but for new clothing lines like WholeClick Clothing. UrbanNews702 spoke to the owner of WholeClick Clothing "Perry Louis Andrez " (to the left with Vegas Mob Records artist "Keith Gorden) and ask 
how he got started ? , 
hows it going ? , 
whats the future of WholeClick Clothing ? 
here's what he had to say .
 
 
Perry Louis Andrez
 
I started wholeclick clothing last October.  At the time my daughter was born and I wanted to leave her with something that I can give to her. I chose the name wholeclick because you need a team to succeed, even a king has to discuss his ideas with his peers before making a decision. I was born in a small town in texas called cleburne but I was raised in Los Angeles California. We have many representatives of the wholeclick family Keith Gorden, Hope Spins and J mauzarotti that's our team in Nevada and our texas family MRDUBB of New Breed ent, jdiggs of Zoo Gang, and BigTyme Divine of RedLine Records.. were currently getting prepared for our winter and next years Magic fashion show in vegas and talking with Sales representative s and getting the wholeclick name in retail stores.. be sure to follow us on twitter @wholeclickcloth, on  instagram @wholeclickclothing,
 
thanks for your time Perry, good luck with the clothingline. See more of WholeClick Clothing by following these links.

King Knawtti Breaks Down Reggae explain the meaning of Knawtti and artist music he's feeling READ NOW!

(G.Smoove & Knawtti)
 
King Knawtti has been a fixture in the  WestCoast but Sin City Las Vegas is his home. As a Reggae Artist his music is always about progression with a postive out look and always has the nack to get ladies up and dacing every time he hits the stage. 
King Knawtti sign to "And? Records" where he's more than just a artist he's the host of show for the label owned by "G Smoove " .
 UrbanNews702 caught him online on FaceBook  and  did a quick Q&A? 
 
like .... what does ur name mean? ... when did you get started ? ....what got you stared in reggae ?......now explain to us the different style of reggae ?..... who are some of the artist that influence ? ... whats new with you any new release coming soon? .... 
 
 
 
 
( King Knawtti )
 
Nawtti is the phonetic way to spell the word natty. In Jamaica natty is another name for Rasta. Natty refers to the hair being in dreadlocks. Now king is a term regularly used in Jamaica with respect between male friends, associates, and brothers. So I decided to spell it Knawtti to stand out, because my name is a conjunction of two commonly used term in Jamaica. I always had music in my head and heart since I was aware that I was aware!(from a child). I started trying to share it with the world about 2003 with And What(&?) records. Reggae is the first music that touched me deep. To this day I can't keep away from good reggae music. So doing reggae music is only natural. I am a Jamaica that's where I was born and 90% of my family still lives there. Reggae music has different aspect to it there is Roots reggae, Lovers Rock, Dancehall, and even Socca and Calypso are in the reggae family. Roots runs through all forms of reggae, it refers to the social content that the music seems to touch on that always pushes for righteousness and progression. Lovers Rock refers to the songs about romantic love. Dancehall is categorized by its dance rhythms and very lyrical artist known as Deejays. Dancehall and Hip-Hop are close these aspects. Socca and Calypso music are  often played during festivals and carnivals with steel drums driving the beat. Robert Nesta Marley, Yellowman, Gegory Isaacs, Coco T, Beres Hammond, Garnett Silk, Capelton, Luciano, Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, Sizzla Kalonji, Beenieman,. These are my reggae influences. Well I' working on my first two solo releases. I have a lot of music recorded for a mixed cd, mixed with reggae, dancehall, and Hip-hop. The other project will be a reggae and dancehall project with a few song on it with the way I put my twist on things. My music can be heard on Jango. My fb artist page is King Knawtti(fiyahman). Reverbnation, Hulkshare, Number One Music, HotNewHipHop, and Twitter just search King Knawtti. On Instagram it's KingKnawtti

Thanks brother  keep up the great work ! 

 

Producer Vrago "Making Moves In Las Vegas "

(Producer Vargo in the red left end with the Vegas Mob Record  Artist)
 
Hey thanks Vargo from taking break from work, you are a busy guy know of day. I wont hold ya long just give me 10 question.
 
Where are you from ?
 
(Vargo)  Texas.
 
So that means you have that down south stlye of music mostly  ?
 
(Vargo)  I don't like to confine my style to just one genre.  I consider myself to be very versatile, but if I had to choose a region that influenced my style, it would have to be the South.
 
So what was your frist producing grear ?
 
(Vargo) First piece of producing gear..  Honestly, I started off just using Fruity Loops.  No keyboard, MPC, nothing.  But when I started getting serious, I picked up a MIDI Keyboard.
 
What year was this ?
 
(Vargo)  2005
 
What makes Vargo rush to the studio is it a artist , producer or song ?
 
(Vargo)  What makes me want to rush to the lab and make music is the potential in the hip-hop industry.  Hip-hop is ever-changing, and the changes we're seeing today excites me.  I don't like all the new music coming out, but the production side of hip-hop is the fastest changing aspect of any genre in music right now.
 
Unlike most producers with big name you have no "AKA" why is that ?
 
(Vargo) I don't use an "AKA" because my name is so distinctive.  There aren't too many Vargo's in America, especially that make music.  Plus, growing up, people didn't call me by my first name.  I was always known as Vargo.
 
Now we all know the South is pop'n big now what are some of the artist you've work with ?
 
(Vargo)  I've worked with hundreds of artists outside of Vegas, but some industry names that you would know would be Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, Dorrough, Mr. Pookie, Tiko Outlaw, and Jellyroll.  I also worked with producer Drumma Boy on a few projects.
 
WOW! impressive now youve landed this deal with one of the best labels in Las Vegas "Vegas Mob Record " how did that happen ? 
 
(Vargo) The Vegas Mob Records deal was different.  Me and Reggie met up online while I was networking.  He was looking for more producers for one of our artists, Mic Brim.  We set up a meeting and I played some of my music for them.  They loved what they heard, and within a week we had a deal signed.
 
With all this going on it must takes up all your time to work  one other projects ?
 
(Vargo) I never stop working.  I'm working on three separate albums for artists on the label.  Also, I'm working on a project for some of my people in Dallas, including the producer Mouse, who's worked with Boosie and Webbie.
 
Lat but not least how would you like to say in closing  this  intreview  ?
 
10.  I appreciate the interview Will.  It's always good to be recognized for your talent, but I'm not all about the fame.  My aspiration is to make great music.  Hands down.  If anybody wants to discuss projects and work, you can contact me at vargoproductions@gmail.com.  Thanks again.

 

Kaine Sosa speaks on Rap Battle with Ill Ru and new projects !

Kaine Sosa (green hat) with SRG of Hood Sent and Illru (black hat) during good times.

what made you pick the name Kaine Sosa ? When I started my career, I started fresh from Clark High School, battling. In the cafeteria, classrooms, football games, anywhere. So "Kaine" came from the story of Cane & Abel because he killed his brother & that what I do, I kill brothas. "Sosa" came from the song writing aspect of the game, once I learned how to construct a song, I always told myself that once I get in the game I would have more hits than "Sammy Sosa", hence - Kaine Sosa

......how long have you been on the scene far being a vegas artist ? Since 05'

..... how did you and ill ru meet? A mutual friend who at the time was an acting manager for us both.

..... did he bring you to the AHAT battle? No. Ive lived in Las Vegas since 1996, he moved here at least in 09' or 2010. AHAT was founded in 08'. I knew of it but never joined because their numbers back then arent what they are now as far as views. I battle, so I knew that once their numbers were at a place where it made sense for me to join, I would. Then one day he mentioned it to me thinking it was a fresh idea since I had never spoke of AHAT before to him, not knowing all along I had plans to join anyway. I also contacted AHAT's CEO, "OD" by myself & paid my own money to enter the league. So to answer your question, No, he did not introduce me to AHAT.

...... how do you feel you rate in the AHAT battle ? a 7 or an 8. Ive had much better performances. Most all of which have not been on camera. I can do much better.

..... how do you see as a threat in AHAT or any other League? In AHAT, or any other league, I see no one as "threats". Just obstacles.

.... how did this how misunderstanding with ill come into play? Long story short, I had heard some things about his one of many new circles & its individuals who call themselves friends to him basically stabbing him in the back. As a friend, I tried calling him for several weeks to inform him of the company he keeps(which is what a true friend does), but all of a sudden he was no longer responding. In addition, I also heard that he planned on getting very personal from a little bird, & it all just snowballed from there.

..... do you feel like you won this battle and why? I absolutely do, No question, without a doubt in my mind. Ive been hearing everyone say the 3rd round was a toss-up, even if that was the case(which it isnt), that would still give me 2 rounds therefore the win. If you break down that battle, bar for bar, analyze the energy, crowd control, aggressiveness, metaphors, punchlines, its pretty obvious. Also you CANNOT win a battle if you stuttered EVERY round & made up lies. In my opinion.

....whats going on beside this battle ? Ive started a record label, titled, "B.A.R.S. Ent." I will be the 1st artist signed to it. I have 3 projects dropping 2014 in April, May, & June. Videos & singles will be released, Feb. & March. Project one titled, "Raising Kaine Vol. 1" will be dropping in April, which will be my 1st ever mixtape. All these years ive ONLY done original music. In May we will be re-releasing my 1st album, "The Arrival" on iTunes.com @ https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-arrival/id417008341 - re-vamped with a few new releases & re-mixes on the album, & finally in June, my new album, Sosa Season will be dropping. We also have gotten my website KaineSosa.com off the ground.

.... how would you like to end this story by saying what? Stay positive, focused, & determined. Hard work & dedication pays off. Visit KaineSosa.com & buy "The Arrival"!
