[EP] Dwayne “Muffla” Simon – “Suspicious Packages 2″| @MUFFLASIMON

Dwayne “Muffla” Simon & Covert Entertainment Soundwork Present “Suspicious Packages 2”

Dwayne “Muffla” Simon and Covert Entertainment Soundwork release the 18-track album titled, ‘Suspicious Packages 2’. This EP is laced with various artists, dope rhymes, intense beats, and that edgy West Coast flow.

Dwayne “Muffla” Simon is one of the original pioneers of hip hop. In fact, Muffla” is the man responsible for lacing hip-hop with his special sauce by writing, producing and arranging super hits for artists such as LL Cool J, Run DMC, and Ice Cube. As one of the originators behind the L.A. Posse, he was one of the main ingredients of a multi-platinum American hip hop record production team.

He ‘retired’ from the music industry for a while and began coaching high school football in the Antelope Valley (outside of Los Angeles.) A true champ in all his endeavors, last year he led the High Desert Phoenix Semi-Pro Football Team, located in Antelope Valley/High Desert to a 2017 PCFC Championship as their General Manager.

His production company, Covert Entertainment Soundwork, marks his foray back into the music business. The recently released “Suspicious Packages 2” is his first production album in 20 years! “Suspicious Packages” returns west coast hip hop to its original funk inspired origins.

As Simon confidently states, “The goal was to make sure each joint checked all the boxes, longevity, potential, the nod factor, C-walkability, ‘unfuckwitable’ bars and lyrics – you know … the formula!”

“Suspicious Packages” is destined to be a true classic. Take a listen above!

[NEW POST] WHO IS WOODY MANE? | @WOODYMANE

Texas Rapper, Woody Mane proves to be a Contender in the world of Hip-Hop

 

David Austin (March 17, 1984) better known by his stage name, Woody Mane is an independent rapper born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, signed to Oneof1 Management Company. Woody Mane will mark his territory with his forthcoming EP titled, “Ghost 2.5.”

Strongly influenced by his surroundings while growing up in the gang-ridden neighborhood of Eastwood in Fort Worth, Woody Mane quickly realized his passion for music early. Woody began using it as an outlet to express things he would see in his day to day environment.

Greatly inspired by musical acts like Tupac, Lil Wayne and Chamillionaire, Mane’s biggest motivation to pursue a music career came following the untimely death of his biggest supporter and eldest brother, Derrick Austin in 2008.

The loss was a pivotal moment for the rising star, as it motivated him to go harder with his pursuit of music and begin performing throughout the DFW metroplex. He quickly amassed a core following, which resulted in him being featured on Texas legend, Lil Keke’s 2014 hit, ‘Subtract Da Top’ off his “Money Don’t Sleep” album. Since then he has gone on to collaborate with other notable Texas rappers such as Tum Tum, Solo Lucci, and Jaio.

In 2015, Mane dropped his highly anticipated debut project, Codeine Fiend, which received a warm reception by fans with popular tracks ‘Regulate’ and ‘Masked Murderer.’ He then followed up its success with the release of his second project, Black Ghost in 2016 which earned him the attention of mega music executive, Debra Antney. Woody Mane’s third project, Ghost dropped April 19, 2017, and is still doing numbers.

WM’s latest compilation, GHOST 2.5 is set to be released soon! Make sure to follow him to stay in tune with updates.

East Coast Duo, 4 Real Light Up the Streets With Their New Mixtape/Ep,  #4Matic

When you are seeking a storyline behind the everyday struggle – Hip-Hop Duo of 4 Real, De_Graaf & J-Don are the solution. The storyline to be heard is on their most recent compilation, 4Matic. The 11-track mixtape/EP has several talented producers like Two4Flex, Easy European, Decicco; just to name a few.

4 REAL

De_Graaf, who grew up in Elmont NY has always had a passion for music since a young child. Some of the East Coast influences included Nas, 50 Cent, Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls. Often many misconstrued De_Graaf’s passion for music as a hobby. Someone told him “You Should Take This Serious,” and this inspired him to channel his energy into making it a reality. At that moment, he partnered with J-Don to create a solid plan to reveal to the world.

4 Real

The other half of 4 Real, J-Don was born In Flatbush, Brooklyn; but raised In Elmont, NY. The love that J-Don has for music can be heard in his delivery. Growing up during his elementary school days, During breaks, He & his friends would rap in the back of the class. This is where he earned the name “Jada” for his resemblance to “Jadakiss” & his impeccable bars inspired by his favorite rapper “Meek Mill.” For the record, J-Don has a story to tell, and he wants you to experience it.

J-Don & Graaf has put in work and often spent many days writing over beats. They both realize that it was time to take things to the next level. The 4 Real duo plan to present the “Real” in Hip-Hop with their aspiring vocals and uptempo beats. Both De_Graaf and J-Don have a desire to create a new sound in the rap industry.

[NEW MUSIC] A.O. – “Episode 3: A Force to Be Reckoned With”| @THEAGENCYHQ

A.O. emerges with a new album Episode 3:  A Force to Be Reckoned With

 

After picking up from Episode 1 and 2, A.O. unveils a new album Episode 3:  A Force to Be Reckoned With to be released on December 31st. Throughout his career, the Agency Operative has gone through a series of transformation to reach this point as a hip-hop artist. From writing in a journal to writing rhymes. Quickly, he went from playing trumpet to being a vocalist.

Shortly thereafter, there was a setback in which AO had to take a hiatus. The first album didn’t meet the financial success expected. So, the Agency Operative held back on releasing more projects. The first one could’ve been the last. The reason for creating another project would be – AO does not give up so quickly. Even though “Episode 1” did not reach financial success, the album did give him a better perception of how the music industry works.

A.O.

Another reason for putting out another project is that the graduate of TCNJ in 2009 has not seen much change in the economy. The job market continues to be limited to job opportunities. Not much has changed from the first album in 2011 to the current album in 2015. After graduation, A.O. continues to work temporary jobs with no offers for a permanent position. He decided to take his life in a new direction.

From the beginning, AO went by the stage name, King Kong. The reason for the name change was due to getting legal rights to the name. With that being said, the new name is  “The A.G.E.N.C.Y Operative.” Agency is an acronym (Agent Geared for Emissary to Navigate through Critical Conditions without yielding). Operative means secret agent. The Agency Operative is the secret agent of The Agency Headquarters and the name of the label. In 2010, the label launched, and the first single was “So Hot.”

What’s next?

With seven years into the game, the current status of A.O. is to continue with the mission. The third installment of his discography “Episode 3: A Force to be Reckoned With” will be released. “Episode 3: A Force to be Reckoned With” and will be available on Itunes and Google Play on December 31, 2017. Also, you can pre-order his album before its official launch.

As an agent on a mission, the journey will continue to fulfill the mission statement.  Connect with A.O. to be one of the first to download his latest project.

This album will take you through all the seasons from fall to summer.

ATR embodies what perseverance is. He exemplifies what it means to be “steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.” ATR is persistent, has tenacity, determination, and the musical talent to have staying power in this talent-filled music industry. He has displayed continued effort to catch the “wave” he once had with 3 million votes and two top-rated songs on BET.com Ya Heard.

  “A million people will like my music and a million won’t. Hopefully, some of the millions that like it, are decision makers.”

With ATR’s deep roots in music derive from his dad and uncles (Brotherly Love) who graced the 1972 Billboard charts with their #16 hit record “Momma’s Little Baby Love Lovin.” ATR’s music has a multi-regional feel by being born in Oklahoma City, growing up in Los Angeles, spending time in Brooklyn, New York absorbing the hip-hop culture and living in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. The competition of trying to surpass my family’s Billboard Charting mark of #16 continues to drive me as an artist. The legacy of the “Jackson” name itself makes ATR want to thrive and bring it back to international prominence.

ATR

Who is ATR, really?

In the early part of his career, James “Popeye” Greer; who managed Mint Condition’s first two gold albums, guided him on the right path with mentorship. ATR has performed internationally in Cancun, Mexico at the Baja Club, along with his last performance in Queens, New York at a Power 105.1 “Artist Showcase.” Also, he appeared on MTV Overdrive when he opened up for MTV Overdrive’s host Krishnar at Universal City’s BB Kings.

Although ATR’s passion is music, he enjoys giving back to the community by working with at-risk youth. He became a “custodial guardian, ” in order for this African-American teenager to finish his education. He didn’t want this young man to move back into a gang-infested area on the west side of Chicago. ATR started an educational program titled R.E.A.L (Reaching Every Academic Level) which is for students who struggle academically or socially. This entertainer has had the opportunity to captivate many teenage audiences with performances across the Twin Cities of Minnesota, with his ties to education and inspiring youth. ATR symbolizes what a person who comes from “the struggle” can do if they persevere in life.

ATR’s music is making its way across the world wide web including the singles, “I Know Better” and “Close.” Currently, it is in rotation on various platforms like; Dj Nothin Nice radio and Dj Show’s Plan-A- radio based in Los Angeles, CA.  The “Drinks In The Air” video has appeared on TheCool TV 30 times.

[MUSIC]The Violent Hippy – “Free Will” ft. K.O Beverly | @TheViolentHippy

East Coast Producer, The Violent Hippy teams up with KO Beverly

on debut single, “Free Will”

 

Brooklyn, New York’s very own,  The Violent Hippy collabs with KO Beverly on debut single, “Free Will.”  The song was produced by The Violent Hippy and engineered and mastered by KO Beverly. The listener will find the hook very interesting and catchy.

At the age of six, The Violent Hippy experienced the value of a close-knit family in one household. Shortly after, his parents were able to move out to the Poconos, Pennsylvania in search of a much calmer lifestyle. TVH gained a musical interest while attending church and watching his mother often perform during services. At the age of seven while living in Brooklyn, his father unknowingly introduced him to the world of hip-hop  As the years went on and having a genuine adoration for sports, TVH had to choose his next path in life. He ultimately had to decide what he desired in spite of what others wanted. After attending a community college for only seven days, TVH dropped out to pursue music full time.

At the age of 18, The Violent Hippy dropped his first mixtape called”The Tweaked Thoughts Project.” As to everyone’s surprise, the compilation racked up thousands of plays & hundreds of downloads and introduced the internet and the Poconos to a sound they were not yet familiar. His music is versatile & consists of an unprecedented merger of metal, trap, rap & soul. Most of his fans played a crucial role in fueling his growth. They seemed to resonate with his profoundly passionate soulful flow & delivery, uncanny thought-provoking lyricism and unpredictable yet progressive self-production. His sound has the potential to shift the sound of hip-hop today.

What’s next for The Violent Hippy?

Since his first project, The Violent Hippy released 3 Singles from his follow up mixtape. His various production can be heard on the tracks’ -$OULED ME’  and the most recent single ‘Free Will’ featuring KO Beverly. ‘Adding to the roster, Life’s Vices’ which features Supa Bwe & KO Beverly hit the worldwide web earlier this year.

With the hopes of building up more anticipation, a follow-up album will arrive before the end of this year. We can’t wait to hear what The Violent Hippy is cooking in the lab. Be sure to follow him on all social media outlets to stay in tune with the next project.
