[NEW EP] SPANK MASTER BOOGIE- “MUSEUM”| @OMARJEFFERSON


Minneapolis native, Spank Master Boogie debuts his comeback EP, “Museum”

DJ Spank Master Boogie has traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada & Mexico. This self-produced DJ enjoys performing in front of live audiences with his catchy wordplay and profound lyrics. In 1996, he won the University of Minnesota’s Hip Hop Olympics MC Battle. His claim to fame was his 1st release entitled “Whom Shall I Fear” in 1998 which ranked him among some of the best lyricists from his hometown and abroad.

DJ Spank Master Boogie, also known as Hip Hop Maniac has performed at Ivy League schools as well as numerous bars, clubs, small and large venues. While attending Central State University, he earned his name/moniker from a friend and a position as a college radio DJ. Although he had a short-lived career on the radio, his love for old-school funk, R& B, Rock, and Jazz can be heard in past projects like “Cotton Candy Glowsticks” and “Who is DJ Spank Master Boogie?”

“The person with the least amount of talent is always gonna have to work harder than the more talented artist”

Spank Master Boogie spearheaded a mixtape movement among some of the world’s favorite DJs. He has collaborated with the likes of The Ohio Players, Indigenous Tribe, Eminem, Trenched, DJ B Sqrd, and Yo! Majesty. During his journey in music, SMB has caught the attention of the younger DJs such as DJ Kid Magic Rock out of Columbus Ohio, who has a great ear for mixing as well. The millennial DJs listened to how he spun his set and gave him the approval. This inspired S.M.B. to continue bringing more music out and enjoy life while traveling.

Recently, Spank Master Boogie’s released his latest 14-track compilation titled “Museum” showcases music as audible art. The album starts out with a song entitled Hashtag MC. The emcee raps about “Medicinal Music” and lines like that there is a haze of clouds shadowed down on the real emcees in this world. The project features producers such as; DJ Kid Magic Rock (UMC’s), MF Love, DJ J5, Ricardo Del Rio and Tonic Man (Richbumz). Also, it features the multi-talented L.A. painter/producer, Lisa Amaro, who contributed to the Gray Skies song on a rainy day in South Beach Miami.

“When delivering content to real hip hop heads, it’s difficult because there is so much commercialized materialistic following in hip-hop, says Spank Master. It’s hard to separate great emcees from pop stars, sometimes the message of being positive gets lost in the bright glittery lights of wanting to be famous.”

Spank Master Boogie is a seasoned hip-hop emcee who focuses on lyricism at the highest level while delivering psychedelic vocabulary and witty punchlines. He is definitely highlighting hip-hop – the way we remember.

[NEW MUSIC] J-MANE – “PROOF” FT J-HOOD | @JMane_HT

Hip-Hop Artist, J-Mane overcomes the adversities of “The Struggle”

 

J-Mane has seen many struggles throughout his life and desires change.
Phillip Jermane Allen – also known as J-Mane, is an up and coming hip-hop artist out the underbelly of small rural West Virginia. Allen was born February 4th, 1988 in White Sulphur Spring to parents, Penny Allen and Jay Jones.

The term “music is the entry to the soul” sits with the young J-Mane. It wasn’t always his passion to still make music. When he was younger, he had another passion that he wanted to carry him to the road of success, football. He had dreams of making it pro and coming out of the struggle. The struggles became more of a reality when he got older.

In 2007, Allen’s world changed completely. His mother, Penny Allen, got sick and lost her fight. Young Allen is merely just coming out of high school at the age of 18, and he didn’t know what to think. Sadness, anger, many emotions were running through his head. During his emotional rollercoaster, he gained a DUI charge, and this was when his mindset changed his whole perspective. Phillip turned to football and envisioned success as his way to make his momma proud. In 2015, his dreams fulfilled when he went to the west coast and signed with an AFL (Arena Football League) team. Shortly after signing with the team- his nightmare began. The interim coach lost his position, and his contract voided. Back on the struggle, J-Mane tried to think of ways to cope. Music became the answer. He was able to speak his story and help inspire others. His path appears to be finally set.

J-MANE

What’s next for J-Mane?

J-Mane, with inspirations from the death of his mother, family, friends, and the overall struggle of life, began his journey into the hip-hop scene. His story speaks for itself with hard times, conflict and poverty. His vision is evident. He aims to reach new heights and change the world with his music. His most recent single, “Proof,” featuring ex D-Block member J-Hood is the prime example of struggle in his life. The record speaks on his story of hardships.

The truth that J-Mane speaks is something that everyone can identify. J-Mane is here to stay and is the next face of the hip-hop community.

6 Surefire Ways to Grow Your Following on Instagram

Following these tips will help gain more followers

When it comes to marketing your brand, Instagram comes with unlimited potential. With their growing audience of 500 million active monthly users, your business has a giant opportunity to reach the demographic you’re seeking right at your fingertips. If you’re still floundering, we’ve compiled a few tips to give your Instagram following a boost.

Hashtag, hashtag, hashtag

Come up with a visually appealing photo, caption it with a compelling quote, and then…. do you hear crickets? You certainly won’t if you use hashtags. The hashtag is an Instagram brand’s best friend: it’s the easiest way for users to find content within a specific theme. Make sure everything you post has at least three appropriate hashtags to increase your exposure and your following.

Post, post, and post some more

There is no magic number for how often to post, but we see that accounts posting three to four times each day get the most engagement and following. At a minimum, you want to keep your content consistent, with a goal of at least once a day. Social media moves fast, and a potential follower who sees that you haven’t posted in a week may consider your account abandoned. The more content you post, the more opportunity you have to utilize hashtags that will make you visible to an untapped audience.

Get their attention

The best way to attract targeted followers is to search for your ideal accounts and get them to notice you by engaging with them consistently. If you don’t have the time to do this every day, InstaGrowth does it for you. Simply connect your Instagram account and select your target market. Then InstaGrowth engages with your prospects by liking their photos, based on hashtags that they use – hundreds each day!

Share the love

Make it a point to promote something other than you. Instagram makes it easy to tag other brands and promote other companies by sharing their products or services in your posts. Yes, there are benefits to not keeping it “all about you.” By tagging and sharing other businesses, you’ll get greater recognition for yourself and the company you’re promoting. You’ll develop alliances with other brands who may sing your praises on their feed, which will increase traffic and possibly sales.

Follow, comment, respond

Take time every day to connect with other accounts within your niche. Follow and comment on their content consistently. This will make you recognizable and reliable in the eyes of other brands, and they will often reciprocate by liking, commenting and following your account. And don’t forget your followers: respond to comments, thank them for compliments, and make the occasional post thanking them for their support.

Know the stats

DID YOU KNOW? Images with a high amount of background space get 29% more likes than close-ups of objects. Photos that are brighter generate 24% more likes than dark images. Lower saturation sees 18% more likes than vibrant colors. Pictures with human faces are 38% more likely to get likes than those with no faces.

When you know what gets Instagram’s audience engaged, you’ll be more likely to post the kind of content that will bring increased likes and followers your way.
