[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!

[MUSIC] GOLDEN- “GOLDEN-ZONE”| @Haterzjustdoit

Southern Artist, Golden captures his listeners with his single “Golden- Zone”

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. 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.

[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.
