Get To Know Yuna (Yuna sits w/Dj Pup Dawg in Boston’s Jam’n 94.5)

Music is one of the most powerful forces of unification. It has the power to heal, the power to help, the power to inspire, and the power to change.

Yuna understands the importance of music and has the ability to write songs that transcend any and all boundaries. With her soft vocals and warm acoustic guitar, this singer-songwriter crafts intriguing and infectious ruminations on life, love, and so much more.

Growing up in Malaysia, Yuna was first inspired by the universal appeal of acts like No Doubt, The Cranberries, and Fiona Apple. At the age of 19, while in law school, she picked up a guitar and began to fervently write. She released her self-titled EP in Malaysia in 2008. The single “Deeper Conversation” became a massive success and went on to win the title of Best English Song at the 2009 AIM Awards, Malaysia’s national music awards. Yuna swept the ceremony, garnering Best Pop Song and Song of the Year for her Malay song, “Dan Sebenarnya”.

Yuna joined FADER Label in summer 2010 and released her digital EP Decorate in March 2011, which had fans, critics from Billboard, KEXP, The New York Post, and even Russell Simmons himself, who raved, “an amazing new singer…her music is incredible”, all instantly praising her talents.

Also in 2011, SPIN featured Yuna in their Buzzcatcher piece, “Eight Bands You Need to Hear Now” and she gave a stellar performance before a packed audience at MTV Iggy’s “Best New Band in the World” concert in New York City. Yuna was a finalist in the “Best New Band in the World” competition and the show aired live on MTV’s HD Screen in New York’s legendary Times Square and was also streamed live worldwide on MTVIggy.com.

In January 2012, Yuna released “Live Your Life”, the first single from her forthcoming full-length album. It started getting airplay immediately at Sirius – The Loft, KCRW and KROQ. The music video premiered on MTV2 and was featured on the homepage of VEVO.com. Yuna’s self-titled album will be released on April 24, 2012.

Kid Ink1

Covered from head to toe in tattoos, 24 year-old Los Angeles-based rapper Kid Ink is wrecking havoc on the streets and in cyber world. The Rapper/Producer/Songwriter/ Tattoo Aficionado has over 25 Million hits on YouTube with lyrical gems like, “Tat It Up” “La La La,” and “Keep It Rollin’.”
Having spent the majority of the early part of his career behind the control board and not the mic, Kid Ink crafting his production skills working with multi-platinum artists like Sean “Diddy” Combs and Sean Kingston as well Yung Berg and Nipsey Hussle. Production came natural for Kid Ink, “I started making the beats because I already had several artists trying the rap thing out, so I thought I would be more useful supplying the production.” But sitting behind the board was not enough for Kid Ink. Just a few short years ago, Kid Ink picked up the mic and a new contender in the Hip-Hop game was born.
Honing his skills as a songwriter creating hooks for his beats, Kid Ink stepped up his lyrical repertoire with full length and completed songs.
2010 was a breakout year in the young rapper’s career. Teaming up with world-renowned DJ ill Will and DJ Rockstar’s newly formed Tha Alumni Music Group; Kid Ink became more focused in his grind and began working on the underground hit, Crash Landing Mixtape. His hard work paid off and the music industry began to take notice. Within 10 days of its release, Crash Landing garnered critical acclaim, a position at the top of Datpiff.com’s ‘Top Mixtapes of the Week’ section and amassed an astonishing 50 thousand downloads.
After Crash Landings’ debut, national and international request to perform rolled in. Kid Ink has toured the states with stops in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Denver, Kansas City and Buffalo; and internationally in Toronto, Canada, Zurich, Switzerland, Melbourne, Australia and Krasnador, Russia.
Solidifying himself as a real MC, Kid Ink garnered career-defining features from Hip-Hop and R&B stars including Young Money’s Gudda Gudda, Roscoe Dash, Sterling Simms, Bei Maejor, Meek Mill and many more. Kid Ink’s uncompromising work ethic would not allow him to rest on his more than impressive laurels; there needed to be a ‘visual’ movement to showcase his innovative style and unique persona.
Lensed by Director Alex Nazari, Kid Ink released an astounding 8 cutting-edge music videos in 2010 alone. Tearing the Net to shreds, to date his now 19 released videos have garnered a very impressive 25 plus million views.
2011 continued to be phenomenal for the young MC. Having released his (free to the public) sophomore album Daydreamer on June 21st via the internet, the lyrical juggernaut accumulated over 150 thousand downloads in its first week. Fans went ballistic over the album that featured all original production from the likes of The Runners, Lex Luger, Jahlil Beats, Cardiak & Tha Bizness as well as major features from the Cory Gunz, Meek Mill, Ray J, Sean Kingston, Dorrough, Bei Maejor and more.
Bucking the norm of waiting for a major label deal to kick off his career, the rapper has taken his fate in to his own hands and crafted an internet campaign that rivals many of the acts resting high on the Billboard charts. With videos under his belt including Internet sensations “Lowkey Poppin,” “Please” and “Cali Dreamin,’” Kid Ink is definitely rockin’ to his own beat.
Kid Ink continued his 2011 tear by releasing “Wheels Up,” yet another all original Mixtape on October 10th to an overwhelming response. Once again outdoing the numbers his previous project accumulated. Following the release of “Wheels Up,” Ink has been on a mini “Wheels Up” tour including stops in the Bay Area, Denmark, New York, Boston, Toronto, Denver & Chicago to name a few, performing to packed crowds of 600-2,000.
His Internet game is just as tight as his rap game. His website, www.kidinkmusic.com gets between 90,000 and 150,000 hits a month, his Facebook page has over a 200,000 Likes, his Twitter game is continually growing with 110k plus Followers and via HotNewHipHop.com Kid Ink has a staggering 8 million + digital downloads.
Even the fashion community has also taken notice of the Hip-Hop star. Ink has Brand Relations with companies ranging from Crooks N Castles, Young & Reckless, Dope Couture, LRG, Adidas, DGK, Neff, Pink Dolphin and most recently Puma, clothing him for his many video and photo shoots.

SPOT LIGHT August 2011 “FAME”

Cecilio Joseph (born June 25, 1990), who records under the mononym Fame, is an East Brooklyn hip hop artist and soul vocalist. Raised by a single mother, and now barely twenty-something, Fame’s energy and upbringing blends like his music- full of likable melodies, fine rhymes, and a knack for the devil in its details. Blessed with multifaceted rap and vocal talents, Fame pushes the bar to new heights while throwing down a gauntlet in the hybrid rapper-singer scene now taking center stage in urban music’s collective consciousness.
Because the credibility of a single artist who raps and can actually sing bucks detractors who believe one should only do one or the other, it was thought at first that listeners would be hesitant to hear Fame’s real talent. However, the reaction for most hasn’t been as polarizing as originally expected, in fact, its been the opposite. If its hot, its still hot.
“I’m glad the response to what I do has been so positive for the most part. I’m definitely influenced by the golden era of hip hop and conscience lyrics. At the same time I gravitate towards more musical elements with an energetic rawness.” Fame next says with a grin, “then again, sometimes you just gotta spit the dirty truth.”
What makes Fame’s music stand out, besides the catchy parallel metaphors, rhyme schemes and twisted resolutions, is the fun he effortlessly infuses into his tunes. Highly influenced by the clear annunciation of Jay Z, Biggie, Fabolous & R. Kelly, he also draws upon the styles of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, and retro-80′s sounds. Add that he writes, records and performs most of his own composed hooks and choruses, and you might believe its not enough today to only have enough talent for rap. “Basically, I like party records, and love songs… why not combine both in a single track?”
In October 2010, MBK Entertainment agreed, and signed Fame to a management and production deal. He’s since locked himself in at MBK Studios in midtown Manhattan writing and recording with a variety of producers. His next goal is to release a mix-tape in early 2011.
With lyrics and wit so apparent, its also easy to forget that Fame is so young. None was more obvious when recently asked what inspired him to chase down his dream, (he personally acknowledged to be shared by many.) Fame accounted for a time when he was only 16 , being in the wrong place at the wrong time resulted in injuries that included a wired-shut jaw, a stockpile of emotion and words amassed inside his mind. “It was then, without being able to talk to anyone that I became depressed, like after 2 months,” he says. “The inspiration and ideas for my own songs began to build-up inside me like a reservoir.” He also added, “When I got my jaw back, and was finally able to speak, I didn’t take my privilege to communicate with my voice for granted. I worked hard and not just in choir practice, or at rap battles, but to seek the best quality of music to wrap my words
around… it takes an incredible amount of hustle and patience to find the highest quality of music collaboration. When I sometimes couldn’t find the sound I was looking for, I made up my own.” Lookout for this catchy flow-smith/singer’s own this winter 2011.

Illicit & Hector Valdez

Hello world, meet Illicit, aka The Friend That Raps. This talented rapper/friend is a respected member of the Boston hip-hop community and is sure to be on your list of top 5 rappers with just one listen to any of his tracks.

Illicit was born and raised in Cambridge MA, a neighboring city to Boston. Since childhood, he listened to and learned from some of hip-hop’s greats, including the late Notorious B.I.G, Eminem, Jay-Z and Nas. And from a childhood interest in listening to hip-hop grew a young star’s passion for writing and performing his own rhymes.

When Illicit entered high school, he picked up the pen and pad. Writing verses to radio hits and recording these remixes with a $20 mic, Illicit brought these songs to school to let his peers listen in the back of class.

Though his classmates were convinced that the emcee on the tracks was talented, they doubted it was actually their friend. So in order to prove them wrong, Illicit made the song “Psychology” (named after the class full of doubters) in which he dropped bar after bar of one liner jabs about each person in the class, proving once and for all that he was…Illicit, The Friend That Raps.

Since then, Illicit has grown into a multitalented rapper with an ever-increasing ability to write and record rhymes. He continues to provide listeners with a unique style of hip-hop that includes clever punch lines, honest lyrics, and a no-holds-barred attitude on the mic. Illicit possesses a balance between the lyric strength of a battle rapper and the musical creativity of a mainstream hit maker, giving him the keys to both a commercially successful and respected career in music. All of these attributes will make Illicit an invaluable addition to any label’s roster of artists.

• Already in his career, Illicit has opened for a number of established artists including Joe Budden, Cassidy, Mr. Cheeks of The Lost Boyz and Sean Price.

• He provides Intro’s for Boston’s “The Ramiro & Pebble’s Morning Show” on Clear Channel’s JAM’N 94.5.

• Last year’s comic anthem “Let Me See” accumulated 30,000 hits within days on Youtube and won Illicit the chance to perform for a 2,500-person audience at Stoolapalooza opening for Sammy Adams.

• Currently, Illicit is collaborating with JAMN and Konvict Live’s DJ Pup Dawg on “The Friend That Raps Mixtape” Out Now.

• Be sure to check out his website www.thefriendthatraps.com, follow him on Twitter @iamillicit and buy his singles “Evil Women” & “Life Support” on iTunes!

About Prince Malik

Prince Malik is the proud son of Sir Malik S. Nawaz. He was born and raised in New York alongside a large family of seven brothers and one sister. His parents have been happily married for 41 years, and he cannot thank them enough for giving him the support and confidence that has made him who he is today. When he was 18 years old, his father announced that he was to be crown prince. From then on he has represented the name, Malik, in honor of his family. The unfortunate early passing of one of his elder brothers has pushed him to live each moment to the fullest. He will live on in his memory, as he knows that he is in a better place. He cherishes his experiences and continues to push himself to learn something new each day. Education is something that he has always valued. He believes that education is the key to success, and with it, one can do the unthinkable. He achieved his first bachelor degree in Journalism, where he expanded his love and talent for writing. He then decided to launch his education down the path of medicine. He achieved a master degree and a doctorate. He is always willing to learn new skills. He wanted to learn to fly a helicopter, so he took the classes and is now a licensed pilot. He also loves to travel the globe and try exciting new things. He is a certified skydiver, scuba diver, and he also races cars and boats. He believes that once you begin something and want to do it, that you should give it your all and finish it. He feels that no one should ever give up. He always finishes what he starts, and he has now been blessed with the chance to pursue his passion for music.
His music career first began as an organic love for writing. He then learned how to piece meaningful words together with even more meaningful sounds and melodies. He now holds an intrinsic interest in turning his passions into a phenomenon that can be spread across the world. Thanks to the help of many of his dear friends, he was able to turn his visions into realities. The idea behind most of his music was to share a glimpse into the beautiful lifestyle in which he lives. He wanted to portray his realities as fantasies that can be achieved with hard work and a lot of ambition. His first single, “Billionaire” (Malik Malik), features his great friend, Zab Judah, world champion boxer. They have had so much fun creating this track, and he hopes that all of you will have just as much fun listening to it. “One Night” was his first solo track, and he is looking forward to revealing even more musical creations and collaborations in the near future. Thank you to all of the people who have helped and supported him through this journey. He feels incredibly lucky to have so many quality people in his life, and he is now thankful to share his music with all of his amazing fans. He loves and appreciates each and every one of you. Thank you for the continued support.

About Alex Young

Music has always been the backbone of my life. I believe it is what inspires and creates. What has always been so amazing to me is that music is universally understood and recognized to evoke specific emotions which are virtually the same whether a person lives in Ghana, Nottingham or anywhere on the planet. Music has played a major role in my life from the beginning.

I remember music constantly playing in my house from an early age. I was exposed to a wide-range of artists who have been influential in my life and career. Blues, Jazz, Bossa Nova, Classical, and everything in between have helped create who I am as an artist and the direction I want to take my life. Aretha, Sinatra, Celine, Mariah, Whitney, Diana Krall, and Sade have always inspired me as well as newer artists who are creative, and quirky, with their sounds — like Jamie Lidell, the Guggenheim Grotto, Scissor Sisters, Nick Drake, and Rufus Wainwright… I guess the last two aren’t so new, but still great to listen to and get new ideas from.

All of these artists inspire me creatively, not just as an artist, but also my life in general. Every time I am singing or performing, I enjoy thinking that a little bit of each of them is inspiring my sound. One of the most exciting moments for me as an artist was when, at 14, David Brody and Elvis Duran first introduced me to the public. They played one of my songs on Clear Channel’s Z100 radio show two years in a row, in commemoration of Sept. 11th.

Creating that song, Heart of America, was my introduction to studio recording and, although I understand that process much better now and enjoy what goes into it, I think of myself more as a live performer. There’s just something about performing live that can’t be recreated or captured that’s so fascinating — and indescribable. You get such a high from performing live. I think that’s what I love most about it.

If I were to describe my sound, I’d have to say that it’s really a mixture of pop, hip-hop & R&B and is evolving into something a bit more quirky and layered. That’s another thing I love about music… it can always evolve and take on new forms. I’m really excited about the direction my music is heading and hope to never stop evolving as an artist.

Wispers Mixtape Cover

Wispers Mixtape Cover

Not many people are built to last in the music industry of today. It is even harder if you are a rapper. One can’t simply rely on skill anymore; you have to be dedicated to the daily grind and able to master writing catchy club anthems without losing one’s street image. Wispers is truly one of a dying breed. Since starting Code of Silence Entertainment (C.O.S. Ent.) in 2003 Wispers has caught the ear of industry heavyweights such as DJ Sickamore, OG Ron C, Riggs Morales & Jon Gottlieb thru the releases of his singles and mixtapes. He estimates about 15,000 of his cd’s have hit the streets over the years building his reputation as of the leaders of the new East Coast era. All this while serving time in federal prison and witnessing the death of his brother in shooting that nearly left Wispers paralized. Wispers is the man every girl wants and who every rapper wants to be. For years Wispers has been preparing to tell his story and now the world finally seems to be ready to hear it.

Born in Boston, Wispers first began writing lyrics in order to share them with his sister who was born with a hearing impairment. His lyrical ability soon earned him a reputation but Wispers also began earning a bigger name on the streets. Getting arrested serveral times as a teen Wispers’ mother moved him all around Boston and it’s surrounding cities to New York and Florida in hopes of saving her son from the streets. The experience of living in so many different regions gave Wispers the ability write songs that everyone would like. Wispers helped start Split2nd Entertainment and was fast becoming one of rap’s most promising talents but it wasn’t paying the bills. Wispers found himself in prison and once released he was no longer the label’s main focus.

In 2003 Wispers returned to the streets where he ended up selling a gun to a federal informant wearing a wire. It was at this moment that Wispers would create C.O.S. Entertainment. Knowing he was going back to prison Wispers enlisted various friends to help run the label in his absence. Before returning to jail a single titled “Game’s On The Line” featuring former Terror Squad member Triple Seis was printed on vinyl and shortly after it’s released Wispers was sent back to prison. The song still garnered major radio airplay and C.O.S. released a mixtape titled “Guilty By Association”. The mixtape was a collection of songs Wispers had recorded for his debut album “Wispers In The Dark”, which was never released.

Finally returning home in early 2005 Wispers released the now classic “Go Fuck Yourself Vol.1″ mixtape. The mixtape became infamous due to the use of the wiretaps from his court case as segways to the music. In 2007 Wispers connected C.O.S. with Seawood Records/Risk Music Group to release “Sweet Nothings” via Digiwaxx. The single featured songstriss Candace Jones and legendary producer Dame Grease on the beat. Wispers then released “Go F*ck Yourself Vol. 2″ and major labels began showing interest. It was then that Wispers found himself victim to nightclub shooting which sent a bullet clear thru both his legs and his brother dead.

Most people would quit after so much struggle, but not Wispers. Within a month Wispers was back performing shows and recording more than ever. In Summer of 2008 Wispers released “Champagne” and “Power” on Digiwaxx via Seawood Records/Risk Music Group. The singles marked the beginning of a new phase for Wispers. A phase marked with an unheard of hunger to make it.

Since their release Wispers debuted a brand website (www.iamwispers.com) and recorded 60 new songs. He has chosen the best 15 for his new mixtape “Step Your Game Up” and has begun recording material for his debut album which he has titled “Ain’t No Plan B”. The title signifies his new approach to the music industry and how failure is not an option.

It has been said that music is the universal language. It is blind to gender, race and religion. In these tumultuous times, we must exercise diplomacy and do our best to encourage unity on a worldwide scale; music is the ideal medium through which this goal can be achieved. Ariez Onasis, a Greek-Palestinian-American who grew up traveling between homes in Greece, St Thomas and Massachusetts, embodies this international spirit and is fluent in the language that forges connections between people from completely different worlds.
A poet at first, Ariez soon found his true talent lay in stringing words together in rhyme form. Never one for complacency, Ariez soon became a master of his craft and moved on from writing raps to composing full songs. While establishing himself as local sensation is his current hometown of Worcester, Ma, Ariez caught the attention of up-and-coming producer phenom J. Cardim. After spending several nights in the studio together, J. Cardim became aware of Ariez’s unlimited potential and shortly after signed him to his production company Dice Music Group as his marquee artist. Together they created a unique forward-thinking pop sound while maintaining a healthy urban sensibility.
With 2010 in full swing, Ariez Onasis is putting the finishing touches on his debut project The Heartbreak Kid, a magnum opus produced entirely by J. Cardim and featuring guest appearances by several other industry innovators such as Pleasure P, Paul Wall, Rock City, Styles P of The LOX & more. Having been exposed to numerous cultures and experiencing several different lifestyles first-hand, Ariez is using his introduction to inspire people of all continents through the dialect that has existed before any language and will endure long after, music.

Miles grew up in a household where, walking through their home was like walking thru a band hall . Music is his life! Miles’s father played such an intricate role in his passion for music…which his father the originator Mr.Wheeler was also known for his unlimited amount of attributes to instrumentally composed music. Miles has often spoke of his teachings from his father as his protege. He has given his son the stamp of approval to compete in an industry of well respected talent. Miles wasn’t only listening to the music of some of the great legends such as Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk,Dizzy Gillespie,Pat Matheeny,War Report,Ella Fitzgerald and other music moguls around.As well as also learning the ins and outs of this industry that is known for its lack of loyalty.

Contrary to it all, Miles has made his presence felt and he is just getting started. In his childhood discovered by the R&B super producer Maurice Starr and was placed in the R&B group called “Perfect Gentlemen”as the lead singer on Warner Bros records in 1992 at the tender age of 11 years old,and having the honor of working with Dallas Austin, Maurice Starr, Eddie F, Tim and Bob ,Akon, Vincent Hubert, Montel Jordan, DJ Toomp,David Banner,Bobby Brown and many others.

Pay close attention to the future of Masspike Miles success is his destiny…
To many music fans, Masspike Miles first came on their radar on Rick Ross’s “Get It Together.” Recording the smash with Ross in late 2008, Miles signed with Ross’s Maybach Music label.

This connection has lead to videos with Yo Gotti (“Here We Go”), Shawty Lo (“Perfect Women”) and even more collaborations with Ross: “Cigar Music” and “Love Drunk.” He’s also released a new mixtape, The Pursuit of Happiness hosted by Rick Ross & DJ Khaled.

Miles Wheeler is the product of Parisian mother and a father from Cape Verde, a collection of Portuguese-speaking islands off Africa’s West Coast. He was born in 1980 in Sacramento, California. As a child, Miles moved to Boston with his family to be closer to the city’s large Cape Verdean community.

Miles’ father, a jazzman, named his son after legendary trumpeter Miles Davis. And it didn’t take the kid long to launch his own musical career. Miles quickly caught the eye of legendary R&B producer Maurice Starr, who also discovered New Kids On The Block and New Edition. Miles became the lead singer of Perfect Gentlemen, who Starr signed to Warner Bros in 1992. He was just 11 years old. Miles was soon working with artists like Bobby Brown, Dallas Austin, Eddie F and Montell Jordan.

But Perfect Gentlemen, despite their talent, never took off like Starr’s other acts. Miles sees this chapter in his life as vital music industry education. “The lessons I learned watching Maurice Starr equipped me for success,” he explains.

A key lesson was patience. He retreated to his Roxbury neighborhood. He alternately spent time working on music and falling into the streets. “This was a difficult time for me,” Miles admits. “But I always knew I’d return to the music business.”

By 1999, he formed the company and record label Life 4 Life enterprises with partners Roc Dukati and Smoke Bulga, who eventually signed to Epic/Sony records. While producing for his partners, he soon began writing and producing for artists like Fabolous, Stack Bundles, Freeway and B.G. He has recently formed Tha Track Dealers LLC production teams with Atagon1st.

Miles also expanded his brand, appearing movies like Dirty crimes and High stakes and modeling in The Source. Alongside business partner Gangsta Lean, he’s also developed “Ghetto Report DVD” featuring top entertainers speaking on everything from beef to respect.

For the time being, however, his main focus is his solo career. With The Pursuit of Happiness mixtape buzzing, Miles is preparing his debut album, The Struggle, for an upcoming release. MTV has also added both “Cigar Music” and “Money On Mind,” a Track Dealers (Masspike Miles & Antagonist) produced Smoke Bulga single feat. Jim Jones.

“Everything I’ve experienced in my life up until now – both the ups and the downs – has prepared me to succeed,” Miles says.
