Platinum Artist of the Month

[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.

Hole Things- “TRAP PARTY”|@BlacDropEnt

Hole Things  -“Trap Party”

Pittsburgh Pa rapper, Marlo Greenlee is better known by his stage name Hole Things. Legends like Jay-Z, Rakim, and Michael Jackson inspired him to become a musician.  Performing freestyle battles, features, and hip-hop shows facilitated in creating a name for himself.

Eventually, finding a studio home in Atlanta’s hip hop community proved to be quite a challenge. Besides that, Hole Things studied the art of music in various studios around the United States because this deemed necessary. Over time, he would develop a style that combines the wordplay of the East Coast and the catchy hooks from the South.

Several years were stripped from his life when a run-in with the law sidelined his first deal and sent him to prison.  Shortly after his release, Hole Things regained his confidence by focusing on a new mindset and being determined to take back his spot.

“The more you look… you’ll begin to see the true quality of a star”.

Now that his new single “Trap Party” produced by Taz Taylor Beats is streaming on Spotify and Apple Music, proves that this is all he needed to separate himself from his peers.

Humbly, Hole Things describes himself as a diamond in the rough. After the buffing and  polishing process ends, you’ll begin to see the many facets of him – Hole Things.

Platinum DJ of The Month

[Platinum DJ of the Week] @THEDJDOLLAR

Hey Y’all!

It’s Your Gyrl, Ms. Carmen aka Platinum Voice PR bringing another Platinum DJ to you! I had the pleasure of meeting DJ Dollar at the Core DJs Retreat in Miami and  in Jackson, MS. I must say that I was very impressed with this young man. Please take the time to read this and I’m sure you’ll be impressed as well.

Success has been written and etched in stone, when your birth name is Dollar. Achieving aspirations and goals are DJ Dollar’s focus and settling for less is not an option for this West African native.  Dollar  Agbemadon, better known as DJ Dollar was born in Accra, Ghana on September 23, 1992 to Joseph and Monique Agbemadon. Dollar, the youngest of three siblings, has spent most of his time in schools in Ghana; Crown Prince Academy, Morning Star school and Lincoln Community School.  Currently, he is attending West Virginia University majoring Business administration with a minor in PR and French.

 

Throughout the years, DJ Dollar has devoted a significant amount of time and energy to music. Devoting a significant amount of time and energy to music in his teens and his love for the art of DJing gave him a strong positive affirmation to pursue this as a full-time business. In 2005, DJ Dollar was given the opportunity to turn his admiration into reality at a college party in Brittany, France. “By simply performing a baby scratch several times on the record, I felt a strong positive feeling that run through my body” says DJ Dollar.

In 2008, completing school was a high priority, so Dollar had to focus on his education. Promoters began to hire him for high school dances, picnics and talent shows in 2010. This was a confirmation that DJ Dollar has a career awaiting him.  “Its a business, my main goal is to keep dj’ing, grow my brand and reputation; but on the business side of things, I have the dream of opening a high-class lounge in West Africa”.

In 2011, after graduating high school, he wasn’t able to start college due to a series of family misfortunes. However, this didn’t discourage him, it encouraged him to press forward. DJ Dollar contacted his mentor from Ghana, DJ Peekay, and began interning as a junior DJ, to see how to control the crowd with music.  DJ Peekay extended an invitation to his home to teach Dollar the basic method of beat matching.  “It was the only instructional session he has ever given me to date. He speaks in parables every single time; let’s me explore on my own, like how he learnt on his own and he has made it to the top” says Dollar. With limited funds, he bought a Numark Mixdeck Pro 1st Generation and dj’d his first party at his former high school. Gigs didn’t stop for Dollar, although he couldn’t afford a laptop or a Serato box. One of my main goals is “making music a universal language” “If someone like @djnabsinlab who has made it still stays up late to PRACTICE then I’ll never stop practicing.”

Late December of 2011, Dollar started his first semester at West Virginia University and immediately made friends throughout the campus. During this time, he faced a major loss in the family, his brother suddenly passed on, Dollar wanted to make his brother proud because he was a big supporter.   His first event was the “2012 Africa night”; then followed by a graduation party in May for a Ghanaian, who just graduated from the university. His sister, who is a big supporter, helped him purchase his first console, a Numark NS7, which had Serato itch built-in.  At this time, his career started picking up, gaining gigs from private events in the summer to university events – in the late fall.

With his popularity increasing daily, he began working with locals, DJ Fiesto and DJ Monstalung, at hip hop showcases, tailgate parties and a bar named “Chic n Bones.. In Spring of 2013, Dollar became the university’s DJ and started branching out into weddings, more corporate events and building a team.  “Two of my main mentors, who have always been with me in Morgantown, DJ Arthur King (CEO of MYRADIO NETWORK and Power 909 FM) and DJ Monstalung (CEO of PartyMonstas)”. DJ Arthur King gave him a slot on his radio station and guided him on how to be a “Radio DJ”. DJ Monstalung made him a key person in the Morgantown hip hop scene.

 

 

 

Hosting parties became fairly interesting and Dollar knew that this could catapult his career into another stratosphere. Hosting a party with DJ JAM MASTER J’SON, the son of the legendary RUN DMC DJ, Jam Master Jay was the most memorable experience of a lifetime.  The hosting didn’t stop after that, in Fall of 2013, he hosted a Pusha T after party when he came to WVU.  “I had the great pleasure of opening up for the “World Famous G-Unit DJ,  DJ Whoo Kid. I couldn’t believe he was standing next to me.  I have listened to him since I was 13!” Another mentor, “Core DJ”, DJ Schemes, an alumnus of WVU,  when he came for the homecoming weekend,  he advised him on several things. After DJ Schemes’ advice, “I kept hitting the road and ended up doing shows in Cincinnati too. I have fans that love me out there!” says Dollar.

DJ Dollar knows that he has to travel outside of his limits, to effectively network with other DJs. Recently, he traveled to Miami, Florida for his first “Core DJs” retreat, where he met the world-renowned DJ Scratch,  the 1988 New Music Seminar Battle For World Supremacy DJ Champion, 3 Time Grammy-Nominated Multi-Platinum Producer, The 2010 “Master Of The Mix” Winner & The 2012 & 2013 Global Spin Awards Turntablist Of The Year.

Candidly speaking,  “I’m an aspiring Core DJ. Core DJs opened my eyes to the world of music business and made me realize that djing these days is more than just an art. I’m an entrepreneur studying business administration in college and a good DJ”.

[Platinum Featured Artist] Miami Artist @FullKlip35

Who Is FK?

FK is the hottest MC to come out of Miami in a minute and he has the clubs and radio stations going crazy over his hit singles “Don’t Know How To Act” and “I Need It.”
Produced by super-producer Rico Love’s production camp, the two party staples immediately get the floors turnt up and crowds in a frenzy as the Live And Let Live Records MC puts his stamp on the game.

“When you hear my music, it gives you goose bumps.  My club songs are to get my foot in the game and to rock shows but I’m a storytelling lyricist.  I want to be heard and considered as one the greats.  I want to be talked about when people are getting their hair cut. I want to be mentioned in the same conversations with Jadakiss and Nas.”

Rhyming for over ten years and once affiliated with Game’s Black Wall Street Records and Nu Jerzey Devil, FK spits  about his real life struggles of unemployment, being shot and stabbed, prison stints and terrorizing dope boys in the streets.  His catalogue, also includes stories about loses and what it’s really like growing up in the streets of Miami because the city isn’t filled with a million “Tony Montanas” as other rappers will have you believe.

“Most of these rappers don’t have the story and the ones that have actually gone through real stuff have the least amount of fame in the industry while the perpetrators who haven’t been through anything, fabricating and portraying that image, they got all the fame and the money.  I’m here to change that.  I got the story and the talent, lyrics and metaphors.”

Jail can either make you or break you and for FK, the revolving door became tiresome as he honed his craft and wrote a few books and movies while inside as well.  Locked up from the age of 14 to 20 and then serving a few bids after that, FK hopes to inspire people with his story and not promote it and send others down that same dark road.

On tracks like “Streets Is All I Know” and “Nobody Ain’t Perfect,” FK paints pictures with his words as he lets you see his life of struggle and what led him to get caught up in the streets.  Apologetic at times, FK makes you realize that a lot of kids have to make manhood decisions at an early age that causes them to jump off the porch to help feed their families.

Passion and pain can also be felt throughout FK’s music as you can see the pen bleed in his rhymes.  With over 20,000 YouTube views of his video “I Miss You,” the tribute track pays homage to his mother he lost in November to cancer and his daughter, who died on the same day after a hit and run accident.

Further trials and tribulation can be heard on tracks like “That Check” which details how anyone will cross you and how friendships can come to an end over money.
With several projects slated to drop this year including a “Best Of Both Worlds” type collaboration project with Miami R&B crooner Pleasure P, FK is a living example that dreams come true as long as you don’t give up.  He’s what the game has been missing as he brings a message back into music with bars and wordplay to back it up.

 “I’m trying to stand out, not blend in.  It’s time for somebody who actually went through some crazy stuff that most wild people still in these streets can relate to.  I’m trying to teach through music and change the world one hood at a time.”

Who is FK and where are you from?

FK aka FullKlip is a struggling artist from Miami Florida, who is trying to make a change the world through his music.

How did you discover your musical talent?

I discovered my talent when I was sentenced to six years in the state pin.

Who has been your greatest inspirations musically and why?

Every one has a specific thing that makes him or her unique & cant be mimicked like Nas,Tupac, Scarface, Andre 3000, & Ice Cube. Because they represent their own struggle.

What do you feel you offer the music industry that we don’t already have in other performers?

I offer Me FK & being Honest. If I can’t do something I will just say I can’t do it. s?

Have you encountered any problems in getting to this point in your career?

The 1 problem I’m encountering still at this point would be Financial Problems

What do you want people get from your music?

Inspiration, Motivation & Determination

When can we expect some new music from you?

Soon, its being finalized so within the next month or two.

What has been your greatest achievement so far?

Going viral on the Facebook (Full FK Klip) with my Bars Over BullShit Movement & check twitter @FullKlip35

If you could collaborate with one artist, living or dead, who would it be and why?

Got to say 2Pac. Because we have the same views when it comes to the struggle

One track of yours that you think defines you and why?

It’s not one track, it’s the mixtape Bars Over BullShit..just listen to it yourself it will explain why.
