[VIDEO] DAJA MARIE – “CLOSET FREAKK”| @RealDajaMarie

Multi-talented Atlanta native, Daja Marie drops the visual to her latest single “Closet Freakk”

Daja Marie is an American Hip Hop artist with a background in Fashion Editing, Master Cosmetology, and Non-surgical hair replacement. Born and raised in Marion Indiana, she moved back and forth from Indianapolis every two years from the age of 7. Young Daja started singing in church and joined her middle school choir and high school show choir. This is where she developed her love for writing song lyrics. By the age of 19, she was writing on a national scale and looking to be discovered. Anywhere she was allowed to sing, she would, and then she discovered her ability to rap.

daja marieLiving in a place like Indiana, there weren’t a lot of opportunities so she worked hard to get her music played in local clubs and do showcases. By the age of 21, some of that hard work had paid off because she started getting her music played in the hottest night clubs there. Without resources and a strategic plan, Daja was still determined not to give up. It was then when she met Dr. Jameelah “Just Jay” Wilkerson and after years of getting to know one another, the two married and began to take one another other to the next level of happiness and success.

Today, Daja has written for a plethora of local and regional artists. Additionally, she has plenty of features with local, regional, and national artists. She has worked with top producers in the industry, gone on tour with national artists, and opened for legends. Her hit single “Raindrops” received spins nationally and charted on the radio charts.

Daja releases her single “Closet Freakk” along with her very first music video. She has yet to reveal a date for her highly anticipated self-titled EP “Daja Marie”, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She hopes that she can give her fans everything they desire by moving things along as quickly and precisely as possible. Future dates for everything Daja Marie are TBA.

Daja Marie has been told that she looks like Jasmine Sullivan, raps like Snoop Dogg with a mixture of Gucci Mane and sings like an old soul. Most industry execs say that she can handle a broad range of genres. They just can’t put her in a box. Daja Marie would like to think that her style is bipolar and she has no box.

Growing up in a place like Indiana, one has a lot of opportunities for education and a career in sports, but entertainment industry outlets just aren’t there. In 2015, Daja decides to break her lease and move to Georgia where doors have opened, which would still be sealed shut in Indiana. She’d like to think that her city is a consumer town full of creatives. At some point, you’d have to branch out and she did that!

The underground artist named Golden is from Birmingham Alabama with a Toronto-based sound. Coming from poverty with an absent father and mother, he grows up moving between Chicago, Atlanta, and his native land. Never spending much time anywhere hinders him from establishing real relationships. Most life events pertaining to his relocations are short term and translates into his relationships now. He has never been able to give any lady, all he can, in fear that it will all just up and disappear when he gets comfortable. 

GOLDENGolden has very few friends due to causing much trouble in his younger life. In pursuit of respect, he wouldn’t get due to wearing the same clothes and never having money or anything his peers had, which he turned to violence to do so. He thought, if they wouldn’t respect him, they would fear him. Due to abusive siblings and poor parenting, his emotional trauma has bled into his adult life. Trusting no one and very few people in his reclusive circle numb him to desire any relationship with anyone and even still distrusting his closest friends with the deep truth that everyone is temporary. Creative expression has been the only permanent force he has known to have never left him. Golden uses music as an outlet to express his pain and make a better life for himself and the people around him. Be sure to connect with him on all social media and digital music platforms.

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.

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.

[MUSIC VIDEO] TRAV B RYAN – “NO HOME” | @travbryanmusic

East Coast Recording Artist, Trav B. Ryan releases the visual to his latest song “No Home”

When an artist makes some noise, the entire industry takes notes. This speaks the truth for the independent artist, Trav B. Ryan. Hip-Hop artist, Trav grew up in Brooklyn, NY in a single-parent household with his brother in prison for life, and his stepfather murdered when he was 13. He grew up the third out of four children. His biological Haitian dad abandoned them for another family and ends up being deported. The introverted Trav kept to himself mostly. Barely having any friends, He kept his head in a comic book or fixed in front of a tv watching animated superheroes prevail over the common foe. He envied to have a superpower that would make him special-something that would make him a hero, in his little world. 

Trav B Ryan

To cope with his daily life, Trav began to write. It helped him fight his pain, depression, and anxiety. Continuously, he wrote – song after song- until those four walls in his mom’s one-bedroom apartment turned into a rocket ship to the moon, and Trav turned into the super-powered Captain.

“Everybody got the same song, I’m going to sing mine on a high note”~ Trav B. Ryan

In a blink of an eye, he is now a major artist and major influencer in the Hip-Hop industry and so-called “nerd” culture with features on MSNBC, Comicbook.com, Time Magazine, Complex, Entertainment Weekly, and News12 Brooklyn. However, for Trav, this is just the beginning of his epic saga. His powers are still in its infancy.

The “No Home” song is inspired by the hit show- ‘The Mandalorian’. It tackles the subject of abandoning your beliefs and your code to find yourself. It touches on the topics of destruction and growth, all wrapped in an inspirational and emotional sound. Be sure to connect with Trav B. Ryan on all social media and digital music platforms.

[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.
