Jizzel Tha Gee paints pictures with words
on second album ‘Jam City 2’

OAKLAND, CA – Jizzel Tha Gee is about to become a household name thanks to some cutting-edge music off his second album “Jam City 2.” Coming out of Oakland, California, this hot young artist is making a name for himself with his unique rhymes and his one-of-a-kind style. Known for his storytelling and upbeat jams that get people bouncing, his wordplay is the kind of elevated artistry that paints pictures in the mind of his listeners. This is showcased perfectly on his 12-track album “Jam City 2” which he describes as a “big party and a celebration of music from where I come from.”

“My writing and my style set me apart,” he said. “If you listen to my music, you can definitely get a sense that I don’t sound like anybody out there. My craft is my craft and I’ve been able to craft something that’s uniquely me. What I’m saying and what I’m doing, only I can do it.”

Jizzel said his first attempts at music were ultimately all about attracting as many women as possible. And while some of that is still true today, his work has evolved into more of an artistic expression that also entertains people along the way. 

“It’s music that you can picture yourself within the rhymes,” he said. “I want my music to be something that everybody can relate to and do. That’s how I write my music – if you hear what I’m saying you’ll have a visual of it, like a video in your mind. I’m painting pictures for people. When I was younger, I didn’t realize what I was doing  but as I got older, people kept telling me they could see it because I’m paining visuals with my words. It’s a work of art.”

That realization started at a young age when he and his brother would record their songs at home on their boombox over the top of other tapes. His first song “Living in the Jungle” came about that way, and he hasn’t looked back since. He’s been rapping all his life, he said, and over the years has made a name for himself that he knows is about to expand to places all over the U.S. and throughout the world.

Not only does he have music to share with the world, but he’s also a young entrepreneur. His new shoe line called LAM shoes for his philosophy of Life And Money, are currently available for purchase on http://aliveshoes.com/

He is working on more music to release early this year, and he has a live performance slated for Feb. 15 at the Louise Cocktail Lounge in Sacramento.

Botimi Freed – Love Woes

Music, Promo, Videos

Passion and lyricism pair perfectly on new single
‘Love Woes’ from artist Botimi Freed

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MD – When most people think about love songs, they don’t necessarily think about an electro-trap heart ballad. But that’s the exact sound that Hip Hop artist Botimi Freed has captured with his new single “Love Woes.” And it’s a sound that is drawing attention and high praise from big names all across the music industry.

Operating out of Montgomery County, Maryland, this up-and-coming young artist is a name you need to know. His new hit single is just the first of many to come. And in just two years of making music professionally, he has already seen his music go to great heights, including radio play on Baltimore’s biggest stations. 

Born in Houston, Texas, Botimi moved to Maryland with his family at age 12 and has been an East Coast native ever since. Unlike many other artists in the industry, Botimi didn’t find his passion for music until his late teenage years. He started rapping at age 17 when his classmates heard him freestyle and praised him for being better than the rest. They encouraged him to give professional music a try. And when his first song recorded in 2016 took off with fans all over the area, he realized he had a natural talent that needed to be shared with the world. He’s worked on a few other songs since that time and now with “Love Woes,” he is ready to make a bigger splash in the industry and with a widening fanbase. 

“It’s crazy to see how far I’ve come from just freestyling with my homies in the neighborhood,” he said. “I never thought that when I put those raps to some beats and started putting out tracks that people would love it as much as they have. I was just inspired by the greats and kind of fell into it. And like those legends, I’d like my music to be known for being melodic and timeless. I want people to be able to listen to my music now or 10 years from now and it will always be relevant and touch them in some way.”

In the case of “Love Woes,” Botimi said fans anywhere will be able to relate to the stories that came from personal experiences with some of his relationships from the past. He said the song basically examines three love affairs from his life in ways that anyone who has ever been in a relationship will be able to relate to. 

“Each of the three verses talks about three chicks from my life,” he said. “The third verse is my real chick – my home chick. And the moral of the song is that love is not for sale. You can’t buy it. It’s a song that’s definitely inspired from real life and my experiences of being in different relationships in my life – the breakups and makeups and all the things that people learn over time that you have to fight for if you want something real and deep.”

Botimi said he’s working on an EP that will drop in January called “Player and a Savage.” That combined with the wave of success he’s seeing with “Love Woes” is something that he said he’s sure will propel him into an even greater 2020.

TYBenji – It Takes Time

Industry Spotlight, Music, Promo

New rapper out of Dallas brings eccentric, crazy vibe to Hip Hop with mixtape ‘Drip’

DALLAS, TX – TyBenji is a conquering artist from the Deep South whose unique sound and style is set to propel his life into fame and superstardom. His new single “It Takes Time” is a testament to the hard work he’s put in to get to this point in his career. It also serves as a statement to the world that he’s a new artist on the scene that people should pay attention to. It’s an aggressive song that perfectly showcases his unique lyrical ability and one-of-a-kind delivery as a rapper.

“It’s a song that says it took a minute to get to where I’m at,” said the young artist from Dallas, Texas. “I have a strong foundation now and though there have been some rough times along the way, everything else from here is gonna be smoother. The biggest thing I’ve had to overcome is just getting my foot in the door and finding the courage to do what I want to do. Now that I’ve got that foot in the door and I have a stronghold and a strong foundation to build upon, I’m not looking back.”

TyBenji has been a budding artist for as long as he can remember. From the time growing up in Dallas as young Tyrik, he was always attracted to music and by age 10 was already writing his own raps and freestyling with older boys in his neighborhood. By the time he was in high school, he was actively pursuing music as a career and had already adopted the stage name TyBenji as a combination of his first name and the slang term “Benji,” which is a moniker for money. He says his early work was representative of some of his biggest musical influences including Lil Wayne, Easy E, Snoop Dogg, James Brown and Chris Brown, among others. But over the years, he has developed a sound and style that is all his own and which he knows will stand out in ways that will eventually make him a household name all over the U.S.

“My sound is different,” he said. “I just sound like me. I think it’s a sound that shows off my personality and my vibe. I have an eccentric, weird, crazy vibe. My mixtape ‘Drip’ really shows off that eccentricity and craziness. It’s a project that shows people the adversity I’ve faced in life and how I’ve had to climb from the bottom. It shares those things through music that some people would call weird or crazy. But it’s straight rap that comes from me and is perfect to show people who I am as a musician.”

In addition to “Drip,” TyBenji said he’s working on another mixtape that he hopes to drop sometime in the next six months. He’s also planning to release a music video for “It Takes Time” and is excited to see how many regions across the U.S it can make a splash.

DiVinci SanTana – OK

Music, Videos

14-year-old entertainer DiVinci SanTana drops new single ‘OK’

LOS ANGELES, CA – One of the hottest young entertainers in the business today is a teenager named DiVinci SanTana. Soon to be 14, he has already made a name for himself in Hollywood, and he’s preparing to take the next step in his career by launching new music that’s set to drop before the end of the year. 

Born in Los Angeles, DiVinci started in theater at merely 7 years old. He did numerous plays and eventually auditioned for America’s Got Talent. Opportunities continued to present themselves, and he was able to land acting roles on “Judge Hatchett” and Jeneen Robinson’s “I’m 13 Yo!” In the midst of those acting jobs, he began to realize that though he loved acting, his first true love was music. So in 2018 when he was introduced to the CEO of BTMR Entertainment Group, he knew he wanted to pursue music in a major way. 

In the year-and-a-half since that meeting, DiVinci has worked closely with super producer Malcolm Harvest (AKA Mal G) on an album that is tentatively slated to drop in May of 2020. The first single from that project is already complete and is slated to drop on Dec. 20. It’s called “OK” and it features DiVinci’s unique sound and style in ways that will make people sit up and pay attention. 

“It’s crazy how that song came together,” he said. “We were in the studio for so many hours and it was like 4 a.m. and it just kind of came together out of nowhere. The vibe is something different and new – not like anything else out there right now. We knew what we wanted to do and we accomplished that … and that feeling is very satisfying. Basically, it’s a song that says I was always OK and money will never change me. It’s a very upbeat, radio-ready song that I’m anxious for people to check out.”

DiVinci said one of the things that sets him apart from others in the music industry today is that his music is all clean. He’s also able to incorporate sounds and styles from multiple different genres. He said his influences come from people like Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, The Weeknd, Jimmy Hendrix and XXXTentacion. 

“I just want to make music for everyone,” he said. “Whether you’re sitting in the car with your mom, or your grandma, or your auntie, or whomever – they all can listen to it with you. I’m just trying to make music for everyone.”

DiVinci said while he’s working toward completing the album that will drop in 2020, he’s also continuing to act and will take the lead as Josh in the Emmy-nominated Christina Cooper feature film “South Central Love.” He’s also working on a music video for “OK” which he said he hopes to drop in early 2020.

TRUTHR – Strange Places

Industry Spotlight, Music

East Coast based artist TRUTHR hopes to open some eyes with new singles

NORFOLK, VA – Today’s culture is one filled with people seeking out that next high. There’s not enough content in the world to meet the demands of the masses – from streaming platforms to movie theaters to thrill rides at amusement parks and everything in between. The desire for that daily dose of dopamine drives people to truly seek out new experiences, and sometimes it leads them to strange places.

This is the theme that East Coast artist TRUTHR explores with his latest single, “Strange Places.” It’s a song with a deep, dark vibe paired with a hook and melody that is catchy and impossible to ignore. Like its name, the song offers an otherworldly vibe that embraces the mindset of a lot of people in the world today, sporting powerful production by Chxnce.

“This generation ain’t got no patience,” TRUTHR says. “We want it all now. That’s how I feel and it’s how I see other people feeling.”  This song presents that idea and then kind of leaves things open for interpretation based on how people would define ‘all’ for themselves. At the end of the day it’s about seeking fulfillment. Many people  are unfulfilled, numb and lifeless … and what does that say about our society?

“Strange Places” also showcases TRUTHR’s unique vocal inflections and one-of-a-kind sound and style. From an early age, he wanted to rap and sing which wasn’t usual for the time but in this era, it’s the new standard so TRUTHR comes well prepared. More than anything, he focuses on the lyrics, working hard to pick the perfect words to convey the message and feeling to which he hopes others will relate. 

“I try to keep it uplifting and I’m often exploring things in the metaphysical and spiritual realms,” he said. “I’ve done a lot of studies on those things on the side. I like looking past the veil of reality, and a lot of my music will reference my experiences of observing the deceptions in the world and the truths in the world.”

That is, of course, where his stage name comes from – though he also admits that he tends to associate with the “truther” community, with all of its conspiracy theories. 

“Truth has always been my theme, and my music – and even the dialogue I use in my everyday life – lends itself to the exploration of the truth behind things,” he said. “A lot of times, the things that we are shown today are presented in a shifty manner. We don’t see the full picture … especially in the music industry. But I’m more open-minded and in the long run, what feels like my mission is refining the truth in my life and sharing that with other people. I want that to be part of my brand and what people think when they hear my name – someone who makes good music that they can party to or relax to or just vibe to and feel good, but who also drops wisdom.”

In addition to “Strange Places,” TRUTHR has also recently released two other singles with music videos – “Elevate,” a song that encourages listeners to step up their game, and “It’s On Me,” a song that’s about money and TRUTHR’s desire to alleviate some of the pressures of life for those around him.

FH (Fortified Hustlas) – Swerve Talk

Industry Spotlight, Music, Videos

Hip Hop duo out of Michigan brings genre
back to its roots with new single ‘Swerve Talk’

LANSING, MI – Hip Hop is music that comes from the streets. It’s a genre that was born as a
voice for the people – a reflection of the gritty reality that times are not always easy, good
people don’t always get ahead, and opportunity and justice are just pretty words spouted by
the privileged few who have never known life without them.

Two relatives out of Lansing, Michigan want to bring Hip Hop back to those foundations and
their unique style of music is gaining attention throughout the Upper Midwest. Mo Betta and D
Eagle don’t play the fake game. From the moment they started rapping together as children,
they’ve made a pact to serve their listeners a more authentic brand of Hip Hop. Holding their
art to a higher standard, these two talented wordsmiths are bringing a refreshing realism to the
game – a genuineness born from their collective hardship.

“We’ve been fucked with and we’ve served time,” D Eagle said. “We’ve seen the world for what
it is, put that into words and strapped a fat beat on it. All we ask now is that you listen.”
Operating under the name Fortified Hustlas (FH), this rap duo has dropped a new single that is
turning heads both for its originality and its nod to old-school Hip Hop. “Swerve Talk” is a song
that uses the rich life as a metaphor for the struggles of the streets – with powerful imagery

serving as a testament for the hard things people have to do to survive. Paired with an upbeat
tempo, the hard-hitting lyrics are exactly the kind of Hip Hop rap that the genre was created
for. And though it’s not exactly a club-driving tune, it does have a beat and vibe that would fit
right in with those who love having a good time at the club.

The song features well-known Michigan artist El’Zappo, who brings his unique flow and witty
lyricism to the single in ways that the duo says perfectly rounds out the message they were
trying to get across.

“We touch almost all areas with our music,” Mo Betta said. “We’re lyrical but at the same time
we mix in our music with new sounds of today. Plus, there aren’t too many duos out there
today. In the last 10 to15 years, there haven’t been a lot of duos that you’re actually familiar
with. We’re blood cousins who have been rapping together for about 10 years, and we’ve
developed something that is very professional and sounds like nothing else out there today.”
D Eagle said he and his cousin have been inspired by some of the legends of Hip Hop over the
years – from Wutang to Jadakiss, Jay-Z and Fabulous. Some current artists also serve as
inspirations including J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Baby and Quando Rondo. Like those big name
artists, they want FH to become a known household name not just for bringing good vibes but
for having a unique voice in the world of Hip Hop.

“Our music is about realism,” he said. “We’re teaching people something. We’re not just
rapping but are trying to teach and send out a message through the stuff we say.”

In addition to “Swerve Talk,” FH just finished a new song in the studio and is working toward its
release before the end of 2019. The duo is also working on developing music videos for their
new singles and plans to drop an EP sometime in 2020.
