NEW MUSIC‼️ FT BEAR @DgleWittaDgle @YoungCec & @_AlmightySav prod. By @Iam_Queso & @777Cartel

The official BTDMG squad is back dropping off their newest track "Limitations." After receiving such a positive response on their previous single "Pores," which hit WorldStar, it doesn't surprise me that this song grabs my ear also. Limitations is a kickback type of song that gives the audience multiple feelings to feed off of. Some people could twerk or grind to the beat, others might want to drink smooth alcohol and vibe to the song, but either way the song will be enjoyed. Limitations demonstrates the groups versatility in their sound. The song is completely different from "Pores," and I'm excited to see what they do for the video.

Ivan N. YaMouf drops off a nice new sound to end and begin the new year. I enjoyed the smoothness of the beat produced by Kino Beats, and Ivan's catchy chorus "and we gonna blow this year," simple but direct and flows nicely to the beat. LVCHLD gives us a pretty solid versus, a good collaborative effort from the duo, I like Supa Luxe. Ivan if you keep dropping songs like this you're sure to manifest those words. Nice sound for you, and keep going!

Savannah’s own with ATL swagg, a rising music group named Bout That Dough Music Group links up with the head honcho from Two-9 Curtis Williams for their hit single “Pores”. The group displays hit making ability with their catch sound, what I like to call the Atlanta sound of the decade. With more to come this is only the beginning for the young artist, racking up numbers already over 12,000 on WorldStar and 3,000 on Youtube in a day. The new visual were premiered on WorldStarHipHop yesterday. Nice Job! 

A unique sound for the Atlanta scene by the growing artist ReddSterling! The "Before Affect" has a nice sound that instantly grabs your attention, making the audience want more from the artist. The song reminds me a little of Travis Scotts "Antidote," which is not a bad thing at all.

Music Monday

C4 Kaboom grew up listening to the hip hop genre but his deepest inner most influence stems from his father, a Brooklyn NY native who was also a composer and lyricist.   At the age of 15, C4 Kaboom experienced his first on-stage hip hop performance at the Orpheum Theatre in Tampa FL as part of a duo “unstoppable force”.   His solo song, “ghetto love” literally mesmerized and moved the crowd.  During his senior year in high school C4 Kaboom performed at the State Theater in St PetersburgFL in his first Home Grown Hip Hop show.  His stage performance created an electrifying buzz among the crowd.  The next year C4 Kaboom performed at the Local 662 Club in St. Petersburg, FL in Homegrown Hip Hop 2, where his mixtape Punchline Season 1 was debuted and where he transitioned from the stage name “mr phenomenal” into “C4 Kaboom, featuring ODMFW”.  It was amazing to watch ½ of the crowd bounce vigorously to the beat and the other ½ star gazing like zombies in a trance.   

Subsequent to his high school graduation, C4 Kaboom created his second mix tape, Punchline Season II which garnished over 15,000 views on the popular website, Datpiff.   C4 Kaboom has come of age and has fully transitioned into his present stage persona, “C4 Kaboom” introduced in his single, Odmfw.   

C4 Kaboom was recently added to a grassroots hip hop website, “”, based out of New York, and has rapidly ascended to the top 5 featured artist within a year!  This new up and coming artist literally raises the bar with a level of precision immediately drawing the listener to tune in to his self-composed lyrics, as C4 Kaboom is a story teller, truth seeker, and a deep thinker.  At age 21, C4 Kaboom has become “entirely ready”, and seeks to prove to be a refreshing addition to the hip hop musical genre.  His lyrics command the attention of cross generations from baby boomers to millennials.  C4 Kaboom’s newly released mix tape “the other side of perfect”provides a relatable and refreshing addition to the hip hop legacy. Kindly enjoy the music!

B. Reilly

Wanting to make a difference in the music industry, Canadian rapper Ben Reilly has always felt music has been the most amazing way to express oneself. Representing Edmonton, Alberta, the wordsmith has taken baby steps, yet worked hard towards his goal. Launching his career in 2012, the rapper released his first single, which was a failure, leading him to leave the label he was signed with and take a break. This time was taken off in order to get a better understanding of how to succeed in a music industry that has been booming digitally. Launching his label 82 Entertainment, his first mixtape, Maximum Pressure, is set for release in stores and for free download next year. It will sport features from Busta Rhymes, Akon, Freeway, 8Ball & MJG, among others, with production from DJ Felli Fel and Don Cannon. 82 Entertainment gains it’s name from the year 1982, when Canada gained independence from the UK, quite fitting for it’s status as an independent imprint. Ben Reilly was given the opportunity to work with Richie Rich as his mentor, and release Maximum Pressure as an album, but backed out at the last minute, wanting to earn his place in the industry by himself.

Ivan N. YaMouf is a hip-hop artist from Southside Virginia (The 7 cities). He still displays extensive lyricism and consciousness in his music in a time where content has become watered down. Recently he has experienced great solo success after his group, LTM 3 Dots, became stagnant. He still has hope for the group to get back together in the near future, but in the meantime he will sharpen up his skills and fly solo.

His first solo track, Pandora, was written out of pure inspiration. Ivan N. YaMouf dives deep into a wave of a jazz meets hip-hop to create a smooth and unique vibe. The lyrics of "PANDORA" are layered with triple entendres of past, present, and future events to come. Hence the saying "Made it This Far” on the Hook.

On July 4th 2014, Ivan released the official Video for "Pandora" along with the EP/soundtrack "Made it This Far" to signify his independence as an artist. The official Video for "Pandora" was shot by LVCHLD ofPOSTMOD.TV

Tyler Hotel 

James Tyler’s is a Chicago based solo artist, and he has recently released his long awaited new album titled "How Are YOU Doing?" which he had been working on for almost a year. 

"I made this album to address a lot of things in my life that I was avoiding, friends were going in and out of hospitals, and family problems were arising. So I decided to tackle it head on by making a project about it, and during the process learned how to treat myself".

The project consists of 6 songs, and talks a lot about the mental, physical and emotional states of being alive. And after the release of HAYD, it is safe to say that he is more alive than ever. This is the biggest and most successful addition to his career and he couldn't be happier with both it, and all the love and support he is getting.

Lyrical Trap

Javanti Johnson (born April 17, 1990), better known by his stage name Vant Gotti, is an American Hip Hop Artist and entrepreneur.  He was born and raised on the Westside of Atlanta. Nothing can better describe his music other than what his current fan base considers “Lyrical Trap” music.  Vant Gotti’s ability to explicitly describe his surroundings and environment is almost frightening. He prefers that his fans listen to his life struggles in graphic detail before following in his footsteps.  Growing up, he was influenced by Hip Hop icons such as Tupac
Shakur, Master P, UGK, Playa Fly, and Lil White.  Vant also credits his
father for his love of clear lyrics.  Vant stated, “My father had his
own style of clearly describing the neighborhood through rhymes. And you can see a lot of that in my lyrics.” At twelve years old, Vant wrote and performed his first song. He has the uncanny ability to understand his surroundings and quickly decipher it through lyrics.  Growing up in the heart of zone 4 has not been easy for Vant. And his pain and struggles are clearly depicted in his songs. Vant loves to paint poetic pictures about his environment, because the people in his community inspire him. He believes that most rap artists struggle to paint a clear picture of the streets, because they never lived it. Vant Gotti’s music is raw and in HD, and you will enjoy him as your tour guide.

Should Hip Hop Have Labels? Conscious VS Trap

Conscious VS Trap
After Vince Staple tweet about not wanting to be placed in the conscious rap label last Wednesday evening, Hip Hop heads voiced their opinion on the sub labels of hip hop.

I am highly offended by the term conscious rap don't associate me with that. — Vince Staples (@vincestaples) August 12, 2015
This brings me to talk about the topic. Should hip hop have sub genres? Hip Hop was founded on the fun of mixing together music with rhymes and developed into storytelling, word play, political power etc... The culture of hip hop will always include the elements of  DJs to turn the tables, a microphone to spit the bars, graffiti to paint the images, and the infinite break dancing. Introduced in the late 70's were hip hop pioneer groups like, the Sugar Hill Gang, who were the first hip hop group to enter into mainstream media with the classic anthem "Rappers Delight," which expressed pure fun, funkadelic beats, rhymes, and basic flow. During the 80's when…

Steph Curry Goat or Not?

Is Stephen Curry a GOAT?As we begin to close out the NBA playoffs entering into the finals and championship game, the topic of who's "The best player in the league" has become the center of the conversation. On May 10th, the NBA league announced that Steph Curry was unanimously voted as the most valuable player (MVP) in the NBA. Once this news was released it instantly went viral all over sports media, most people agreeing with the decision. Since then fans has made critical claims some ridiculous and others were reasonable. I've heard people refer to Stephen Curry as "the goat" (greatest of all time) comparing him to Michael Jordan even. First and foremost Stephen Curry is what I call a true point guard. He reads each position, pass, and shot thoroughly before just taking them. He has great game IQ without any question and knows when to shoot or pass. Yes he possibly could play the shooting guard position because he's a creative shooter who averages be…
