Roxanne Luciano’s new Caribbean fused hip-hop single “RichRich” is out now. Rising to Fame, Luciano comes from a family of entertainers. Growing up in the music business, Luciano has met and worked with reputable artists across all genres. Staying true to herself, this dynamic artist has crossed over barriers and is killing the scene. So much so, the legendary Tony Mercedes, who’s career total sales excede over 80 million units is the driving force behind new comer Roxanne Luciano.
Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Roxanne Luciano, I was born in Atlanta and raised in Los Angeles. I am 25 years old and pursuing my dreams in the music industry I also have done a bit of modeling and am also studying for a degree in Business Management.
When did you first fall in love with music, and how long have you been actively pursuing your dreams in music?
I’ve been in love with music all of my life. Whether its Rap, Hip Hop, R&B, Rock, etc, music has always been a passion to me. I come from a musical family. Music is therapy to me. Music has always been a passion of mine, but I have always been so afraid to let anyone hear me, but now I feel I’m ready to actually allow the world to see me in that light.
What differentiates you from other artists?
I am who I am and that is just that. I have always lived my life being raw, rich in spirit and rebellious. I’m not trying to be like anyone else other than me.
Are there any artists currently or before you that musically inspire you? If so, who and why?
There are definitely artists before me that inspire me such as Timbaland, Missy Elliot, Lil Kim, Lil Wayne, MIA, Santigold, I can keep going on. As far as current goes, I honestly have to give that inspiration to the ladies because right now in this era, the Queens are all shinning in their own light.
What motivates you in and out of the booth?
I think the motivation just comes from a place of genuine passion. The motivation comes from me wanting to put my voice out into the world and in the studio, I am allowed to do that and I can open up and be myself without being afraid. That’s my motivation, fighting my own fears.
What are three things about you that would shock the public?
1. I am also working on a food business.
2. I am extremely shy.
3. I wish I could clone myself. lol
What do you feel you contribute to the culture as an artist?
I feel that I contribute something that is not seen enough, in my opinion especially being a woman. I feel like I can contribute not only a place for rapping but also a place for singing and just expressing myself in so many different ways musically.
What’s next for you musically?
Musically I want to hit any and every avenue that I can. I don’t just want to be labeled as one genre type artist. I want to channel outlets that I never thought I could in this industry.
How can those looking to book you make contact?
Anyone who is looking to book me can contact my manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
How can we keep up with you?
I honestly plan to be all over the place so I just hope y’all will be able to keep up! =) As of now you can find me on IG @officialroxanneluciano, twitter and more coming soon.
Ron Raxx releases “Can’t Fake It” featuring New York based R&B Soulstress Nyasia Chane’l
Ron Cooper Jr (known professionally as Ron Raxx, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter from Oakland CA. He rose to attention in 2017 when he released the video to his hit record “Snakes”. In 2018, he followed up on the success of “Snakes” with the release of his star-studded, debut studio album “Paradox Cliche”, which included guest appearances from: Mistah Fab, Outrageous Karina, Magnolia Chop, J-Diggs, Dubee, J Banks, Dubb20, Simone Mosley, Young Ell and more.
For decades, the great state of California has produced Hip-Hop artists who are more than just musicians, artists such as the late great Eazy-E, Nipsey Hussle; legends such as Snoop Dogg, and E-40 have all leveraged their artistry with their entrepreneurial instincts endeavoring to uplift their communities. Ron Raxx is no different in this regard. With the establishment of his own label, lifestyle, and clothing brand “STICK Squad”, Ron has ventured into music production, event planning, fashion and philanthropic work.
“S.T.I.C.K.” stands for: Stronger Than I Can Komprehend, when discussing the rational for its formation, Ron reflects on the tragic loss of his mother due to suicide when he was just 4 years of age; “It’s my personal belief that all humans have encountered situations to which we didn’t know how we would overcome them but through our faith in something greater albeit “God”, the “Universe” or whatever we find the strength to overcome, and STICK Squad was formed to be a reminder and inspiration to the people that we can overcome any obstacle together.”, says Ron Raxx.
STICK Squad has begun to partner with Carter Block Entertainment (CBE), Restoration for Life Ministries and Food Without Borders; for weekly food drive events every Saturday donating 2500 boxes of food to those in need in Oakland. Beginning in early February as a response to the hardship brought on by the pandemic STICK Squad and CBE plan to continue this endeavor well into the spring and beyond looking to partner with like-minded organizations and expand to more communities throughout the Bay area and greater California.
Real life, pain, love, loss, companionship is what drives Ron Raxx and that is reflected in all of his music. “Can’t Fake It” is a tale about a new romance, discussing how many times the barriers to love are found in the people around you who are purported to be friends or family. Ron’s chronology of a budding romance is all too relatable, the classic “Good girl” choosing the perceived “Bad guy”. As Ron expresses gratitude for the love of his choosing him over the objections of her peers, the soulful musings of Nyasia Chane’l reassures him that their bond is greater than others have the ability to comprehend.
“Can’t Fake It” is a remarkable throwback styled Hip-Hop/Soul ballad with a “now” sound. Too often many complain that today’s music lacks substance and introspection, however Ron Raxx and Nyasia Chane’l are proof that music can still show vulnerability and still be marketable.
Keep an eye out for Ron Raxx as he is well on his way to becoming a household name, and star in this industry.

Imagine spending most of your life thinking you couldn’t communicate with anyone and something is wrong with you . Between 6 and 8 million people in the United States alone carry that burden everyday having some form of language impairment. Detroit rapper 7deuce found that music was all the therapy he ever needed.
After serving in the Marine Corps, 7deuce found music coincidentally after being advised to try poetry by his speech therapist. He found that the stutter that once tremendously affected the way he communicated, didn’t exist when speaking to a rhythm or beat. So to pay homage to the craft that helped a lifelong disability, 7deuce continued rapping and developing his abilities as an artist.
This rest is history. Since then the former Marine often referred to as “The Guy With The Guns”, released his debut project entitled John Wick and amassed nearly 400,000 streams across platforms. Fans raved over his catchy punch line styled rap lyrics that ironically do not include swear words, and are craving more .
Partnering with fellow Detroit artist Royal T, a collaborative project entitled “Splash Bros” is set to be released sometime in April 2021. Until then you can check out the visuals for the lead off single also entitled Splash Bros on YouTube. Get live updates regarding 7deuce by following him on Instagram @__7deuce (2 underscores)

Haze OPC is starting off the year dropping off a trilogy of singles. He’s shining more light and adding depth to his story, by taking the fans deeper into his mind and heart picking up from last years hit singles, while bearing it all showing his ability to reach different people. With the first single Light On Me (Conversations With The Father), he’s telling his struggles of fighting to overcome different obstacles that could set him back and how the story unfolded into a testimony. There comes a time during life when we’ve come to a crossroad or become awaken/aware and have to acknowledge certain things. That’s where the single Protect Me, Lead Me, Hold Me, Guide Me comes from knowing you’re fighting a battle beyond your understanding, needing help and guidance from GOD along the way. Quick Escape has a catchy hook and it’s one of the songs that’s different from what listeners are used to hearing from International Haze lately. Frustrations from day to day obstacles, rather it be from relationships, work, home or just wanting some alone time to get back focused and relieve some stress built up from the world. We all feel like we need a quick escape at times from something rather it’s a person, place or thing. Once again Haze OPC delivers on time records for times such as this.

Female Rapper Fantasi Is The Truth
Loud bass lines, controversial hairstyles, wild dance moves, and lyrics to make imaginations run amok. Those are the words used to describe Fantasi Labz. Remember, that’s Fantasi with an “I” not a “Y”. She quotes “Fantasy with a Y is a stripper. Fantasi with an “I” is the ARTIST”.
Born in Mississippi and raised in Beaufort, South Carolina, this young lady is southern hospitality at its finest. Her first album “Tuned Out” was released late 2019 featuring singles such as, ‘Come Get It’, ‘Running Man’, and ‘Abomination’. Fantasi’s bold and blunt lyrics are sure to catch every ear and raise every hand in any crowd. She puts on a show EVERY TIME, creating her own fan base called “FanFANs”. These FanFANs are the inspiration behind Fantasi’s second debut album “#FanFAN”.
With hit singles like ‘Liquid Courage’ and ‘BHHS (Bald Head H* S***)’ the album embodies all aspects of her music. Compiled with lyrics to make you cry one minute and jump up and down the next. The fun is in all of the music and stage presence this Carolina native brings every time. In her words; “Why be an entertainer, if you’re not entertaining?”
Growing up in a small town with big city dreams isn’t always easy, especially for a black female, but Fantasi has persevered and adapted to every obstacle, with no sign of breaking a sweat. She has gone from being ridiculed and teased for being different to engineering and developing other artists and her own music. From producing beats, writing and executive producing songs to live stage shows; she does it all.
Fantasi says the mission of her music is, and will always be to LIVE. We all have one life so live it to the fullest. We all die once, but have the opportunity to live everyday. So like Nike, “Just do it”; and according to Fantasi, “Who want it… She got it… COME GET IT!”
