[NEW MUSIC ALERT] Smiles Official @SmilesOfficial | I Got A Bag #HEAT!

Smiles Official is a talented aspiring artist who uses witty wordplay and clever rhetoric to write the music that has all the ladies of South Florida willing to “make them panties drop”. Embracing his rich Jamaican background, Official has always been a lover of both music and food with lots of soul. In junction with his deeply embedded cultural roots, Smiles also accredits a large part of his success today to the city that raised him, Cutler Ridge (Miami, FL).
Not only was he able to launch his rap career in Cutler Ridge but he was also recognized by his city for being a force on the football field and a bullet on the track. Ripe with raw talent, Smiles Official embodied all that is carpe diem, and he has been seizing every moment since.
All in all, his attention was persistently sought out by many and he was able to broaden his network more and more every year. Through his affiliation with Deuce Mob, his love for music found him a temporary line of business as a party DJ. It was apparent even from then that Smiles Official was destined to be discovered. His energy radiates through a crowd like a surge of power. When Smiles Official is on the mic, everyone feels good. 
His life was at a high point, but little did he know, the sky is the limit. Upon returning to Miami during the Summer of 2008, Smiles Official was invited to take the stage at Club Tuckers. On this particular evening, the guest list was illustrious. Big Miami names such as Larry Dogg, Grind Mode and Piccalo were all in attendance, That night was a turning point in Official’s life; that night Smiles Official decided, “I’m not stopping until I make it, period.” 
Smiles Official is an original talent with a unique sound, he calls it Mood Music, and the streets love it! In just a year’s time, Smiles Official was able to release several mixtapes, including the ladies favorite PDM: Panty-Dropping Music. His performances have become commonplace at various reputable clubs in South Florida.
Smiles Official works closely with other Miami-based organizations and his current record label Streets Enterprise Entertainment, of which he is the Co-Founder. With the crowd of people who halfheartedly attempt to pursue a career in the Hip-Hop industry it is often difficult to tell the imposters from the real thing but you already know Smiles Official is as real as they come.

[Single] POINT – Soop’ed Up | @DaOfficialPoint

 

point

 

Rapper “Point” Hargrave was born in Evanston, Illinois about 10 miles North of Chicago. Point was raised by a single God-fearing mother who nourished and encouraged him to pursue his dreams in music. He grew up on the west side of Chicago which wasn’t necessarily the easiest upbringing. Point grew up witnessing the murders of friends and was constantly surrounded by violence. When you ask; Point what motivates him to make music he humbly replies: “When I was young I never knew if I would make it out the hood my motivation was to give my mother a better life, and that’s something I could not do as a child. Point has had dreams of becoming a rapper ever since he was 8 years old.Point’s very first major project is his upcoming mixtape Stay On Point,he worked with a couple local producers on the mixtape such as The Trakman, Mydo and he worked with producers out-of-town like platinum statz and a producer from London name Rawheatz. His song “Who Iz U” instantly became a street banger; it received a great response from the streets. Point has been offered a few independent label offers but has chosen to remain unsigned at this time. When asked about his future Point says “I just want put out a product of music that everyone can relate to and enjoy”. The music business is looking for a breath of fresh air and that’s me.” This is a business and you have to work hard for what you want, and in the end that’s what gains you the most success with your fans.

Please tell us about the concept of the new single “Sooped Up”?
I like the movies fast n the furious in the movie there cars are Soop’ed Up they got everything in them better engine’s, interior etc! So in my song im Soop’ed Up like the car but wit women, jewelry and money so I turned it around.

Who were involved in this project? 
Well the song Soop’ed Up was produced by Raw Heatz. Written and performed by me and it was recorded at Fort-knocks studio in Tampa Fl,  mixed and mastered by Jose Drumzz.

What are your plans for this single?
My plans for this single is getting a buzz and make new fans, making it a trend for people to say there Soop’ed Up. I’m hoping that a&r’s will hear it and start to watch me and also managers might like what they hear and want to represent me. I also have some females in Atlanta making a dance to it so we can put in on YouTube and worldstar hip-hop.

What should your fans expect from you in the near future? 
I’m done with my mixtape called Confessions Of a Addict! I have plenty of singles I ‘d like to drop before the mixtape the next song will be F#ck you 2 Times! And also i expect to do alot of videos and features with other artist and one day I can get on somebody’s tour.

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”.
