[NEW MUSIC] STEPHON BROADWAY – “GAME 7″| @goldbardigital

Multi-Talented Hip-Hop Artist, Stephon Broadway delivers his latest single “Game 7”

 

Stephon Broadway has been involved in theatre and performance art since a youngster. He got an early start with a local theatre program. He credits much of his discipline and creative drive to the program steering him toward something positive. Throughout Stephon’s tenure with the program and under the guidance of world-renowned Broadway Director Alan Weeks, he would study Poetry, Writing, Rap, and Native Drumming. Stephon attended and entertained countless engagements from exhibit openings, to ribbon cuttings and after school programs.

Another personal influence is an indie legend and music business coach- Bad Seed. He learned a lot from Seed; being a vet and signed to a major with the Big 3 at the time. Over time, Seed would introduce Stephon to the untold stories of his favorite era in Hip-Hop, often dubbed “The Golden Era.”

STEPHON BROADWAY

Stephon built an early following with his unique, lyrical ability and rap cadence. Being from a smaller town and limited to the resources it could provide, he began hustling. Luckily, soon after, with the support of local radio Hot 99.1, his single “Get The Bag” would gain enough to momentum to beat out the previously held record at the station and win song of the week for 8 weeks. “Get the Bag” charted Top 100 with Urban Radio.

As time goes on, with the guidance of community leaders and activists; Stephon organized many talented artists from Albany, NY, and abroad for the city’s first Hip Hop and creative arts festival. To be elected as the festival talent scout and Creative Director was a pivotal point for Stephon in his musical career.

Later, with a big push from his family and friends, Stephon would finance a unique Art gallery in his hometown. The Gallery hosts a collaboration of Fine Art and Street Art. This was inspired and imagined after attending some shows styled by Swiss Beats and Dame Dash who he credits as Hip-Hop pioneers to the scene.

The Gallery hosted many young artists and rising talent within the city and abroad. Empire Gala- located in the quintessential Lark Street area- would have its opening reception for hundreds and includes all of his family, friends, and supporters.

Following a great response and with success to the pop-up, things began to shift, and almost overnight what he remembered as a child began to reimagine. He is humbly reminded of its impact and contribution throughout the city scene.

[NEW EP] DAPO-“KING II” | @dvpo__

New York Hip-Hop Artist Dapo focuses on winning with the release of his latest EP, “KING II”

North Babylon native, Dylan Daponte, or “Dapo” is a 20-year-old hip hop artist. Dapo grew up with his divorced mother and father but his mother mostly took care of him. When Dapo was in middle school, he chooses to take up rap music as a hobby. Although his mother wasn’t a huge Rap or Hip-Hop fan, Dapo couldn’t be any more different from influences like Eminem, Kanye West, Akon, and J. Cole. The young Dapo began writing lyrics but never shared his accomplishments with anyone including his close friends. His friends encourage him to take his writing and music more seriously. Shortly after, he decides to release his first song. According to almost everybody, it was an epic fail. Dapo was clowned-made fun of-counted out-even by most of his friends-who encouraged him in the first place. After the debut single backlash, Dapo chooses to focus on his music full-time. He loves the craft so much that he begins to lose sleep and stops hanging out with friends.

DAPOAbout two years later, Dapo completes and releases his first real project titled “King.” In 2018, he felt that he had to prove that he is a contender in the Hip-Hop world. Every conversation that he had, he explained why he belonged for 50 minutes and being the best at it. Miraculously, people started to believe in him more after seeing that he still had life in him.  Recently, Dapo announces his label “Raw Music Entertainment.” The label features artists such as King Cxge, Logan, Merc, Hief-just to name a few. After another 2 years of countless singles, two projects, and countless days working-he releases the second installment of his now-signature album series “King II”. ‘The Weekly Beat’ reviewed ” King II” saying “from start to finish, the album is energizing and captivating”. “King II” currently has done almost 25,000 streams across all platforms.

Lately, Dapo always seems to have a chip on his shoulder due to being counted out so early by so many. He continues to try and remind people that he belongs in this music game, even after being told by his peers, he was great. Despite the complexities in Hip-Hop, he will always want to go above and beyond to prove more than he needs to. There is no ceiling for Dapo, he wants to go higher and higher and doesn’t plan on slowing down. He wants to be something we see rarely, he wants to push the culture forward. He won’t stop till he can say he has done that and more.

[MUSIC VIDEO] DARRELL KELLEY – “AHMAUD”

Darrell Kelley rises up to meet another intense moment in our sociopolitical history

Darrell frames his blunt, intensely emotional narrative about the murder with a larger social context. Those demanding justice aren’t just talking about prison time for Ahmaud’s killers, but changes in a local justice system that failed for months to charge them with a crime.

 

The message behind Darrell Kelley’s music inspires others, touches hearts, feeds the souls, and influences lives for the better.

Darrell Kelley is a performer, singer, songwriter, social activist, spiritual leader, author, and entrepreneur. Where injustice prevails Kelley has been known to plunge headlong into the fight to seek justice, understanding, acceptance, and unity for one and all.

[NEW EP] KUSHY CARLITO – “LOST ANGELS”| @KUSHYCARLITO

West Coast Artist, Kushy Carlito releases his latest compilation “Lost Angels”

 

From the gritty streets of Los Angeles, by way of Compton, CA, Kushy Carlito, an up and coming artist in entertainment, is primed to take the game by storm. Emerging onto the scene with his kushy flows and witty wordplay, Kushy Carlito delivers an array of records portraying tales of the struggle, shedding light on issues in the community, and giving motivation to others to get that money.

KUSHY CARLITO

The street life is survival of the fittest. Every day lived is a blessing in of itself. Kushy Carlito originates from that exact struggle, and as he climbs out of that pit of poverty. He uses his music to take his following along for the ride. 

Money is the motive as with anything else, and growing up in the hood, the youth seem to go down the same road to gain their riches – selling drugs or hitting house “licks.” Kushy Carlito often found himself caught up and eventually suffering the consequences of his foolish decisions. But with the weight of providing for his two seeds on his back, daily, Kushy Carlito decided to make some changes. 

With a 9 to 5 grind, he used his hustler’s mentality to fuel his real dream- music. Inspired by fellow West Coast artists- Nipsey Hussle and Kendrick Lamar, Kushy began to study the game and develop his flow. He dedicated himself to mastering his craft with one goal in mind, “BE YOUR OWN BOSS”.

Today we celebrate the release of Kushy’s 5th project to date entitled, “Lost Angels.” The 10-track project features hits like “My Pain 2” and “Superbad.” Filled with witty flows and West coast vibes, Kushy is ready to take over the streets and put his name on the map. “Definitely my best work, definitely”, says Kushy.
