[VIDEO] ROZE GOLD RIPP – “MACKIN LATELY”| #ROZEGOLDRIPP

FFC Entertainment Artist Roze Gold Ripp delivers the “Mackin Lately” visual from the Min Till 6 Ivy Division compilation

 

roze gold rippThe unsigned artist Roze Gold Ripp hails from Fresno Ca and resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was raised in a rough environment where it was only a couple of ways of making it out the hood. One way is an academic scholarship or athletic scholarship, unfortunately, he got sent to Albuquerque New Mexico to change his life around. At first, it was very different but as the weeks went by, he sets a trend. See it was chopped & screwed music going on out in the area because Texas was only 8 hours away. One night he got a very well DJ play Mac Dre & New Mexico has not been the same since. It’s a lot of hate and love in the city but long as you keep your circle small and rub shoulders with the right individuals that want to see you in position just as themselves or even better than your own the right route to greatness. It’s been a long road going and I know I got a lot more road to travel to that freeway of success. I’m just ready and focused to get there. Failure is never the option. Plus my grandfather always said to me -“anything easy in life, ain’t worth keeping.” So I’m accepting all challenges and obstacles to do just that… I got a lot to prove to myself, my kids, and my family. 

Roze Gold Ripp has a lot of work ahead of him that includes dropping mixtapes, albums, and short movies. “I choose this art, so I must accept the challenge and become an expert at my craft. I never was the one to accept a handout. I sat down and mapped my plan out.” 

Roze Gold Ripp has an up and coming artist, Hondo Fechii coming way from the deep 6 of Canada. Ripp connects the dots, makes good music that you can relate to, and understand where he comes from. Remember, they locked us up in a box and didn’t want us to sharpen up our radius. “I’m living proof -as long as you believe- you shall achieve! RGR gives a special shoutout to Ash Cakes -his other half- for always pushing him to do better, having his back, and his best interest! Welcome to FFC Entertainment.

[NEW MUSIC] SPADE MONROW-“SUMMER 20 TAPE”| @THENEWJERZY

Hip-Hop Artist, Spade Monrow’s “Summer 20 Tape” is a playlist must-have

We all thought 2020 was done -stick a fork in it, right? SPADE MONROW has been cooking up his “SUMMER 20 TAPE” and it’s a cultural impact event coming to make a permanent mark on the rap world. New Jersey’s SPADE MONROW is a versatile artist currently with independent label AGAME. A self-described hip-hop harmony new-age rapper, his music has been leaked throughout the industry and various contemporary artists have been accused of reverse engineering parts of his sound. 

Spade MonrowThe “SUMMER 20 TAPE” feels similar to a contender stepping into the ring under the bright lights for their first title shot. SPADE MONROW proves his grind is relentless and the work he put into his craft and shows. From the jump, “ASSOCIATION” sets the tone and serves as a premonition for the ride you are about to be taken on by this soon to be an international rap star. By the time the strings start to play on GAME TIME, the listener will feel as comfortable with SPADE as they do with one of their best homies. He’s a natural in many lyrical styles and displays this ability on the street favorite “SUSPECT” on which SPADE performs a huge epic hook and destroys the verses. Trap fans will love the vibe on “YNGM” where he drills a hypnotic HASHITO production. The uptempo “UNDERDOG” is an intriguing blend of lyrics and harmony that’ll impress the most accomplished artists and executives alike. While WHOOP WHOOP has more of a minimalist instrumental that allows the dynamic character in the voice of SPADE MONROW to strike the melody perfectly. 

The best season of the year isn’t over yet, so turn up and enjoy it. SPADE MONROW’s SUMMER 20 TAPE is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and everywhere popular music is streamed or listened to.

[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

 

With its cries of “We want justice” backing the main vocal, “Ahmaud” is a heartrending song about the inexplicable tragedy of Ahmaud Arbery. The singer, songwriter, and socially conscious musical Renaissance man released the hard-hitting track on May 18, 2020. 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.
