Truez offers hot new album with ‘New T.R.A.P.P. City’

AUGUSTA, GA – It’s virtually impossible to hate on anything Truez creates. That’s because he’s an
extremely likeable human being. When he was young, everybody considered him the class
clown. He had a handheld tape recorder that his brother brought home from college, and he
would take it with him everywhere and record himself doing impersonations of teachers and
other people. When he’d bring it to school to let other people hear it, the response he got was
a drug that he hasn’t set aside in the years since. In fact, he’s been chasing that high he gets
from entertaining an audience almost every day of his life since.

Today he’s become one of the hottest up-and- coming artists in the South. His new album, “New
T.R.A.P.P. City,” is a testament to the type of music that he creates and the journey that he’s
taken thus far in his career. T.R.A.P.P. stands for Trying To Run Away from Problems and Pain –
a theme that he said not only permeates every song on the album, but also is a bit of a
statement of his life currently.

“A lot of the songs are about how hard it is to be a black male in American and the South while
also trying to feed that wave of music that brings content while still using those beats that are
knocking for radio play,” he said. “The flow of it all is that I’m rapping over a few beats that
have hard bass and hard 808s. On the surface you might think it’s just another trap album, but
if you’re a lyrical person or you love content, you’ll see that it’s feeding into that kind of vibe. It
has a certain flow to it and it has a lot of metaphors – in many cases they could have three or
four meanings in one line. I also have the ability to rap fast and speed up. I tell stories. I
harmonize. I’m a great arranger. I’m a beast of an artist.”

Truez has been into music for 15 years and on the scene for the last five years, first as an emcee
and then eventually as a producer and recording artist. In 2013, after working with Julian Bell
and David Tudor, he was finally able to realize his dream and put together his first major solo
project titled “1991: American Rebel Tales.” From there he moved throughout New York City
where he partnered with legendary DJ Kay Slay to release “Damn My Lifetime” and
“True3nough.” Riding the success from those projects, Truez decided to create his own entity as
a collective label group with then business partner Aaron Grossman. Together they formed
Students of the Game, and Truez eventually released the controversial project “Raw &
Underprivileged” under that label.

His new album is the latest offering from this hot new artist. The first single, “I’m On,” will be
already available for fans late January 2018 to check out through various digital distribution
sites, and a music video will be available on his YouTube channel in February 2018. He said he
has plans to release even more music later in the year. He recorded as many as 115 songs in
2015 alone and currently under 360 Entertainment Group developing new materials. In the
meantime, fans can check him out live in concert on March 2 at Sky City in Augusta, GA.

Bronx Producer and Artist D-Stackz Plans to Release
New Project after the Success of “My Sh-t” and “Jungle”

LOS ANGELES, CA – Straight from the endless hustle and bustle of the Bronx,
New York, esteemed artist and producer D Stackz is here to make waves in the
industry. When D Stackz decided to pursue a career within the music industry, he
looked to his father for inspiration. Through watching his father grow his own
career in their home studio, D Stackz ultimately developed the desire to follow
suit. Little did he know, with hard work and dedication, his production would take
him further than he could've imagined at the time.

Initially, D Stackz began putting himself out there, and connecting with local
artists in the studio. It wasn’t long before word got around, and D Stackz’ musical
abilities caught the attention of so many in the industry. Though, D Stackz didn’t
become complacent, and decided to take his career to the next level as a
recording artist. “I’ve been rapping, and I’ve really been venturing out. I want to
come forth as an artist, and right now I’m working on my projects with
songwriting,” said the artist. The artist’s lyricism stands out among any average
song, and further verifies that D Stackz is truly the jack-of- all-trades.

Fans will be happy to learn that D Stackz is currently working on his next major
project. All songs included in this project will be produced by D Stackz himself,
and feature various artists throughout. Through this, D Stackz will fuse a type of
southern flair with the hard-hitting rap New York is known for. “I would have to
say it’s a mix. There’s a little bit of Atlanta and New York. There are some real
808-driven” beats. It’s going to be real catchy with an emotional influence,” said
D Stackz. When it comes to his style, everything is so organic and strategically
put together. Take his record with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, “My Sh-t", which
went platinum at the end of 2016. D Stackz refuses to place limits on himself,
and it shows within his track record- literally and figuratively!

Looking ahead, D Stackz has major plans in the works for himself and the
landscape of his future music career. Though the artist currently owns his own
production label, S.N.G. Inc., he is committed to taking it a step further in
developing up-and- coming artists. His desire is to change the game, as he did
with his production on “Jungle”, which achieved gold status. Through his vast
capabilities within all facets of music, there will be no surprise when he
accomplishes this.

Make sure to follow D Stackz on his social media sites below, and stay tuned for
the release of his upcoming project!

Prophet Mike speaks truth to the world through music
while touching on hot-button issues

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Prophet Mike is an artist who isn’t afraid to be controversial. In fact, you
could almost say that he seeks out controversy and even instigates it through his music. It’s
kind of the cornerstone of who he is as an artist.

“When I rap I’m talking about politics or what’s happening in society today,” said the fast-rising
musician out of Washington, D.C. “It could be abuse or abortion or racial division – anything
that’s riding the wave of what’s trending and topical. I’m trying to be more of the Kanye of this
generation. So, yes, I’m definitely going for controversial.”

His most recent EP, “Resurgence,” is a good example of that thought-provoking and sometimes
antagonistic music. Released in late October 2017, the project is one that explores R&B and pop
sounds while touching on subjects associated with relationships as well as social issues. One
single from the EP, “Nikki,” was written through inspiration from a relationship he had with a
woman that he used to work with. Another single, “Facts,” was written while he was in London
in 2015. He said they’re songs that really fill a unique lane for his particular style of music.

“I do rap, but I don’t like to be called a rapper because I’m actually more of a songwriter,” he
said. “I write a lot of tracks for female artists or male R&B artists. I write pop and rock and also
produce a lot of those sounds. I’m trying to do everything, not just in one genre. In this
generation of music you have to be more versatile. You can’t just be a rapper who can just do
hip-hop – and I’m the guy who can do R&B on one song, then venture into jazz on the next one,
then hit you with rock somewhere else.”

Born in southeast London, Prophet Mike has always been interested in music. His family moved
to Maryland when he was young, and his experience between the two countries gave him a
unique cross-cultural perspective that shines through in his music. For the past decade he’s
been following in the footsteps of his idols – Michael Jackson, Nas, ABBA and The Beatles – by
writing, rapping and producing. Recent performances in New York and Maryland are just a taste
of what he can do, he said.

He released his first full-length mixtape in 2016 called “Motivation X Segregation.” It was the
first time he showcased his controversial side, with songs like “Shootas,” “Beat Killer” and
“Black and Proud” proving to the world that Prophet Mike is an artist whose lyrics are relevant
and hyper-aware of social justice issues happening all over the globe.

While riding the wave of success from “Resurgence,” Prophet Mike said he’s back in the studio
and hoping to release three full EPs, with the intention of really sitting down and crafting a
classic album over the next two years.

“I really want God to work through me so I can take time and build something prophetic,
controversial and, as always, deeply touching and thought provoking,” he said. “I want to find
new ways to evolve my style and music.”

B-Smooth and Boogie Black collaborate for new hit party
‘Came to Get Down’

NEW YORK, NY – Grand Groove Unlimited Records has a whole host of hit-makers on their
label, and two of them have come together to collaborate on the hot new single of 2018.

B-Smooth and Boogie Black have created a hot new party song called “Came to Get Down,”
which will drop Jan. 23 across all digital distribution sites. The up-tempo song with a driving
beat is one that’s sure to have people dancing, and will definitely make the rounds at clubs all
across the country. According to Boogie Black, who has been successful in the industry in recent
years because of his signature raspy sound and clever hooks, said the moment he heard the
first samples of the song developed by B Smooth, he knew it was going to be something great.

“When I heard that song I knew it was already a hit,” Boogie said. “(B-Smooth) is real talented,
and I’m always down for anything that’s going to make people dance and have fun. That’s what
I’m into – I’m all about helping people have fun and enjoy the party. And then when I met him,
his energy was positive and there was never any cursing or headaches. We just went in the
studio and made it do what it does. It was a no brainer working together.”

B-Smooth is a 26-year- old singer and musician with a degree in music business. At a young age
he began to experiment with music and has already seen some lofty success – such as winning
amateur night at the World Famous Apollo Theatre two times in a row, as well as appearing on
TV shows on Cable Vision, BAM, Wendy Williams and others. This debut single is his next step in
announcing himself to the world of music and establishing himself as a bona fide force in the

“I think my versatility sets me apart more than anything else,” B-Smooth said. “I’m always
writing based on how the beats make me feel. Most of my music is about what I would want to
listen to in the club. How do I want it turned up? Sometimes it’s music that’s just for chilling and
dancing or having a good time, and sometimes it’s music for getting wild with people that I
love. This song in particular is all about coming in and getting your dance on and having some
fun and having a lot of drinks.”

Boogie hails from the Bronx and has been in the music industry for a minute. He’s the nephew
of a hip-hop pioneer who passed while Boogie was a teenager. To escape the pain of his uncle’s
passing, Boogie became a member of the World Famous Skate Key, where he befriended an
aspiring DJ. The two of them would go on to create a writer/producer bond that saw them
creating one hit party song after another.

Eventually Boogie found himself in line with Chris Powell under Grand Groove Unlimited
Records. Chris is one of the most popular party hosts in the clubs of NYC and has collaborated
with a handful of artists under the label. Later this year Boogie and B-Smooth will be featured
on a compilation album with seven other artists from the record label.

Scatta RP prepares to drop new album with
release of first single, ‘Medicine’

TRENTON, NJ – SCATTA R.Pee always looked up to his older cousin growing up. Hailing from
Trenton, New Jersey, he was born into a musical family – uncles who were members of Instant
Funk, a father who was one of the top singers in the state, and a cousin who was signed to
Atlantic Records under the name True Love. Of all the influences on his life, True Love was
definitely the strongest.

“I remember I used to steal his tapes and run up to the attic and play them over and over,”
SCATTA said. “He caught me one time and I remember telling him that I was always watching
him. His career was a big influence on me and when he did a record called ‘Love Rap Ballad,’ it
was the first time I really saw how the music industry works.”

From that moment forward, SCATTA pursued music as a career. He was a founding member of
a group called TRUTH-OR SQ. out of Trenton and together they released a wide range of songs
over the years. In 2009, after releasing five mixtapes, SCATTA released his first solo album. It
was called “Jawanda ECM-Authenticness,” and was named after his older sister who also
heavily influenced his music career. Since that time Scatta has released two other full albums
and one mixtape. And today he’s preparing to releasing his fifth studio project, an album he’s
calling “Da Agriculture.” Every song on the album is produced by Divine Drummah, and the
sound throughout is one that not only nods to the early greats of hip-hop but also to Scatta’s
unique sound and style.

The first single from the album, “Medicine,” is a perfect example of how SCATTA is pushing the
expectations from hip-hop by turning common conventions on their heads.

“This song is basically about the need for hip-hop with substance to it,” he said. “It’s not the
everyday radio song that you hear nonstop nowadays. It’s mid-temp with an East Coast feel. I
suppose some people would say it has that progressive boom-bap sound, but it doesn’t sound
like what’s on the radio today. The music I make is more of what you would hear on college
radio or certain golden-era vibes. It’s relative because it speaks on issues that people are
dealing with every day. Plus, it’s just good quality music. That’s what I was raised on and that’s
why I gravitated to it when I created this.”

SCATTA said he hopes that as people hear his music and get to know him as an artist, they’ll see
a guy who is authentic and always stays true to his principles and convictions. He admits that
he’ll likely never be the artist who makes music born from the trends of the day. He will,
however, always deliver head-bobbing music that has a story or strong lyrical content. It may be
comical, historical, relational or even just something to party to – but every time it will be
something that listeners can grab onto and take something from it.

“Droughts Done” new project drops from Memphis artist

MEMPHIS, TN – The artist known as FYE started out as a producer from Memphis, Tennessee
who would sell his beats online and gained success in partnering with YouTube. He was a
talented musician who eventually gained a name for himself and did well online, so much so
that fans begged him for a full album of his own music. He rewarded them with a mixtape called
“Home Field Advantage,” which he released more than a year ago. After that release, he
stopped making music and focused on working hard and making what money he could through
selling beats and studio time out of his apartment. As Memphis is known for its hardcore
gangster rap scene, FYE hopes to bring a new wave of artistry to his home town among a group
of people that is trying to compete with music industry majors. His approach is to employ a more
urban, wavy sound.

As a tribute to his fans and to his favorite artist, Lil Wayne, FYE is ready to launch a new album
that he’s aptly naming “Droughts Done.”

“My fans have been waiting and waiting for me to drop new music, and now the Drought is
Done,” he said. “I’m getting ready to flood the industry with this new wave of music. So get
ready for that flame.”

FYE has 18 songs ready to drop on the project – six of which are covers. He said he did this
intentionally as a nod to Lil Wayne’s six-mixtape series called “The Droughts Over,” on which
the famous hip-hop artist would rap over the top of popular songs of that time. FYE said he
hopes to build a music career for himself that is similar to Lil Wayne’s, and it only made sense to
create a new project that was similar to his music icon’s.

“I want people to know me as the one of the greatest entertainers who ever lived,” FYE said,
emphasizing that his future plans are not only for music. “I’m not just rapping or singing or
dancing, I’m doing everything. I’m writing, I’m behind the scenes doing the production, I’m out in
the streets doing the ground work and relating to the public, and I have my own independent
label (Late Night Sound) based out of Memphis. I want to start doing music and blow up in the
industry, then eventually start my own clothing line and movie company and be a great creator.
I’ve always wanted to do things that were never thought of, and this music is the ticket to
manifest those things. I want to be just like Michael Jackson and Lil Wayne and all the greats
who came before me.”

The first step of that journey starts with the new album. He said it’s the perfect project to show
off all the skills that he has. The lyrics, clever bars, wavy beats and witty wordplay are 100
percent unique. One of the lines from his track “On” emphasizes this point and nods to Michael
Jackson’s lyric: “She think I’m Michael Jackson Chamone.” Fans can also see him perform
smooth dance moves while entertaining the masses across the country on different stages and

FYE’s style is futuristic, heavily produced and sonically engineered, which gives his fans a more
melodic, dreamy, lullaby-ish sound. FYE said he can’t be put in a box of any specific genre
because it’s impossible to know what he is going to do next. He said he knows this is what
keeps his fans enticed and wanting more.

“Ever since I was a kid, all I ever wanted to do was entertain people,” FYE said. “I feel like I was
put on this earth to entertain people. So that’s why I’m here: For Your Entertainment.”

Iraq war refugee brings dreams of his youth to

fruition with new EP ‘Dream’

SAN DIEGO, CA – It’s appropriate that Zuhair Abed’s debut EP is titled “Dream.” The artist more
formally known as Zanti Official is a refugee from Iraq, moving to the U.S. with his family after
war ravaged his country and forced them to flee. When he left his country, he had nothing
more than a dream for something bigger, something better … something that only America
could provide.

The dream was first planted as a very young boy. His father was friends with a radio disc jockey
in Iraq, and the friend would frequently come to their home just to hang out. During those
occasions, it wasn’t uncommon for them all to listen to music together and sing. And the more
that happened, the more this DJ noticed Zanti’s raw, natural talent. He encouraged Zanti’s
father to bring his song to the radio station and let him sing on air. Things looked promising …
and then the war hit, and Zanti never had the opportunity to make good on his father’s friend’s

“But when I came to the U.S., I started listening to rap – Drake in particular – and immediately I
wanted to become a rapper,” he said. “Drake was a rapper who came from nothing to become
something. I love his style, and every time he posts new music I am a fan. I love what he does
and I love his work. And I want to have a career in music just like him.”

After finishing high school, Zanti was forced to get a job to make some money. But every day
after work he would come home and create new music – exploring his sound and trying to
create something that was unique and different. He began to explore themes that circled
around his dreams – what it takes to become successful, what success looks like and painting
pictures of what life could be some day if he dreamed big enough.

“That’s what this EP is about,” he said. “It’s about dreaming about the life that I want to make.
It’s about me having a house in LA with dope cars and working on my schedule and being my
own boss. Everything is possible, and I know that if Drake can go from nothing to become
something, so can I.”

The EP features six songs that are heavily influenced by trap beats. But Zanti said there are no
other rappers in San Diego doing the kind of music that he’s doing. He has his own unique style
that combines rap with melody on top of more rap, and weaves in slow verses with quick
tempos in a juxtaposition of sound and style that is uniquely his own.

The debut single from the project is called “Their Song.” It’s a song about creating positivity for
other people and trying to inspire them to chase their own dreams. Zanti said he’s currently
working on a music video for the single and hopes to drop it next month.
