Interview With Young Nik

Young Nik was featured as Artist of the week November 25th, 2010. Random Fact...I met Young Nik about 3 years at a tv taping for artists and producers. I was the house DJ and out of no where I see this girl on the stage freestyling better than all the men that where there.After the event was done... HAD TO NETWORK!!!!! Later Seen her by surprise at the GCDJ event in brooklyn where I was also one of the DJ's. She came to me!!!!! lol. So having Young Nik on my blog is an honor and I can't wait till she makes it big. FEMALE POWER!!!!!

Here is the Interview:
White writing=Young Nik

What age did you start rapping? Girl I'm not really sure lol maybe 14

What made you want to rap? The culture of rap at the time, the feeling it gave, the togetherness and also the competitiveness. It brought people together in fun and that's what I wanted to be apart of.

Who are your influences? Family, Biggie, Jay-Z, Kim, Foxxy Brown and Myself

How hard is it to stand out as "another female rapper" with all of the hype going on with Nicki Minaj etc? Lol. Hard? What's that? It's not hard at all! Hype is temporary, I'm out to be a classic!

What do you bring to the table that makes you stand out? My personality. Also, my style, I call it hip-clectic ;) I made that up. It's a mixture of hip hop, r&b, pop, techno, etc. I made it up because I just couldn't define myself with one genre. Lucky Me! :)

Who are some artist you would like to collaborate with? Coldplay, Jay-z, Katy perry, Bono & Beyonce to name a few.

Would you consider crossing over? Well, I feel like good music is universal and fits every genre of music and creed of people. That's the music I'm out to make. :) So to answer your question directly, yes I would.

What do you want to be remembered for? My music, personality and message. Heal the world like MJ lol really though.

What is your greatest fear ? Failure

When your not performing or working on a new track, how do you like to relax? I like to cook, get comfy and watch movies lol or travel and hang with friends and family :)

What is your favorite food? Lobster

What artist would you compare yourself to? Jay-Z

What is your favorite song? No Fair Exchange by Young Nik

How do you feel about having your music stolen or leaked rather than purchased? Just like a dept. Store u have to expect some type of loss, I just want to be heard and loved :)... As long as the gain is more than the loss, I'm cool.

Random fact about yourself? I like sugar in my collard greens.

Hidden Talent? I can cook.

If you weren't a rapper what would you be? I would be a doctor, I love to help the needy.

Any last words? Walk with Me on this musical journey, success is all we focused on! ;) I think I have a pretty good sense of humor lol try me! ..... I've been on hot97, 105.1, in Source Magazine twice and Straight Stuntin' Magazine... This is just my beginning! ;)

Thank You Young Nik!!!!

Be On The Look-Out: Artist of the Week- Sage Bravo

Malcolm Peoples, better known as Sage Bravo, was born March 15th, 1985 in
West Baltimore, MD. Eldest of three siblings, he has been musically gifted
since he could talk. Coming from a upbringing with his mother being an
addict, and his grandmother being spiritual and in church,
Sage had no other choice but to gain attention from God given talents,
hence, his music. His name speaks for itself. Sage meaning one of wisdom,
accentuates his well detailed, knowledge influenced, street savvy lyrics,
along with a plethora of different styles and impeccably solid flow. Bravo,
coming from his high-school friend, and long time teammate Shandon "Rockey"
Smith, was inspired when Sage would spit and it resulted in Rockey saying
"Bravo, Bravo!!”. Multi-talented, Malcolm learned many of the major aspects
of the music business without going to college, or without being taught. He
also taught himself the ins and outs of production hardware, software, and
terms. Also educated in music theory along with history of great musicians,
his influences stretch as far as David Ruffin of the Temptations, Marvin
Gaye, and Sam Cooke, to modern day influences such as Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco,
Kanye West, Nas, and Joe Budden. He never lacks motivation.

Be On The Look-Out: Artist of the Week- Warren Wint

Born in New York, New York to Errol George Wint and Marcia Angela Brissett Wint, Warren Daryl Wint took his first breath of fresh air on January 27 1991, the same day Super Bowl XXV(Super Bowl 25)was aired in which the Buffalo Bills were defeated by the New York Giants in the smallest margin ever(1 point)with the final score being 20-19. Warren grew up on Long Island, New York with his mother and brothers traveling back and forth until finally settling down in Elmont, then Floral Park. Warren went to school at Stewart Manor Elementary and is going to graduate at Sewanhaka High School in June 2009. Warren was never one to be interested into music, in fact , he wanted to have several different occupations before thinking about becoming a music artist. What got Warren interested into music as a career was his an event that occurred at his friend's birthday party which took place on November 20 2003. A freestyle competition was held in which the winner was to receive money as a prize. Warren figured he and his best friend Joe go up on the stage and split the prize money in what would seem as a "win,win" situation. Once on stage, the two battled each other hoping to get some money and along the way, notoriety. Unfortunately for Warren, that experience would be one to remember forever! As Joe finished reciting his verse, Warren was hoping to hear his name announced as the winner for the competition, but instead the crowd had other plans in mind. "Booooooooooooo" as the crowd roared the sound of a loud boo that would echo in Warren's mind like a repetitive chant. From that day forward, he vowed to prove everyone wrong, everyone that doubted him, he vowed to show them that anything can be achieved once you put your mind to it. At first it was a challenging task writing songs let alone verses , but as time progressed on, it seemed to come natural as soon as a beat was played. Currently, Warren resides in Floral Park with his family and is working hard as an unsigned artist to promote his music. Warren Wint plans on making his mark in the music scene as not only an independent artist who is willing to do anything and everything to achieve his dreams, but as a person to be remembered forever. God Bless You All !

Dear Hip Hop* - One of the best productions on the mixtape. Mellow. And smooth. Repeat worthy!

Good Evening - Nice acoustic music with addition of great lyrics. Mellow-chill out-Sip on some Hot Cocoa music

Dream On- Simplistic mellow beat with very powerful lyrics. I'm sure we could all some how relate to this song.

There's A Way - Production is incredible. Reminds me of something Premo(DJ Premier) would do. Has that "underground" feel to it (Perfect for DJ's to add to a mix).

Last Action Here - Production is also very good..very "out of the box". Has a Akufen vs Kanye vibe to it.

Hooray For Lass - Production also just incredible very "Neptunes" but also Very John Lass.

Losers Can Be A Winner - BUMP WORTHY! Can definitely be an underground song merging to mainstream.

Moment For Her - Such a sweet song with no lyrics from Lass but from whats playing you get where he is coming from.

Love Set You Free* - One of my favorites on here. Pure mellow vibes. Also a sweet song.

I Still Love You - Simple beat that gradually becomes complex (A very good thing). The flow one this one is crazy.

Catch The Rhyme ft. - All rappers on here did a very good job. Has a old school vibe but still manages to be 2010.

Home School - A song that would most likely be put in the southern category. Also something for the clubs.

The message - Production is great. Ridiculous flow. Radio quality also.

Out of The Intro- So rare that artists even have outros anymore..But this is by far one of the dopest outros I have heard since "The Score" by the Fugees.

So There You have it! Now go Download And experience John Lass.

Be On The Look-Out: Artist of the Week- Josh Hurt

Josh Hurt, a 21-year-old performer born and raised in a suburban area of Arlington, Texas, discovered his talent for singing at the age of 5. “My love for music was sparked by singing in the church choir, where my uncle was the pianist.” As his passion for music strengthened, so did his desire to create rhythmic verse and short stories following in the footsteps of his poetic mother. He began to write when he was 9 years old, and the words seemed to naturally lead into lyrical melodies that began a musical voyage for him that would ignite his heart and soul to create music with a

message. “Although I was young when I started to write, the content of these songs was something that people of any age could identify with.”

Using his early R&B inspirations like Dru Hill, Mariah Carey, Destiny's Child, and Michael Jackson as his personal muse, he developed a taste for the sounds of R&B, soul, pop, acoustic, and techno music that he expounded upon, creating a truly unique sound that can best be described as urban electronic with a message. “The main message

about my music is to not take life too seriously. Sometimes we have relationship issues or we deal with our own insecurities, but we must be reminded that we only have one life to live. I don't promote anyone living recklessly, but neither do I uphold any boundaries.”

In July, 2009 the debut single “Open the Door” was recorded at The Kitchen in Dallas, Texas; which has produced multiple albums for several top-industry names such as Erykah Badu and Common. “The line 'Once you let me in, I'm gonna win’ sums it up perfectly; I'm confident that although I make mistakes like everyone else, I know how to redeem myself and learn from those mistakes.” He began shooting the video for “Open the Door” in March, 2010, soldiering his way along tracking down the best choreographer, dancers, sound, lighting and audio he could locate. “You have to gather up a team of people to see and follow your vision.” Josh Hurt has just recently released the music video for his second single, “Midnight Racer”, and is still in the studio wrapping up his first project, “The Exhibition” EP to be released later this year.

In addition to his undeniable gift of musical talent, Hurt also has an aptitude for learning, and is currently a student at the University of North Texas studying Economics and Financial Planning. To follow Josh Hurt’s advancement in the music world, visit and for more information on shows coming to your area soon. The hit singles “Open the Door” and “Midnight Racer”, currently available on iTunes. He is a truly a force to be reckoned with, and plans to take the music world by storm.

It’s that same introspective quality and work ethic that make Tilibop the consummate vocalist he is today.

Tilibop loves and appreciates all genres of music, from Old School Soul -The Beatles - Nina Simone, Pavarotti to name a few. His roots are in Reggae and in his Reggae Music Alternative Movement is music with substance that can provide great dancing grooves, while providing thought provoking lyrics. Its music you can feel!

Be On The Look-Out: Artist of the Week- Miss KeKe

Lyrics. Style. Image. Keke, also known as Kelechi Onwumere, is a 22 yr old
female emcee/singer/songwriter that encompasses all of these characteristics
and more. With both of her parents being of Nigerian descent, Keke takes pride
in her culture and continuously embraces it. Although she has never been to
Nigeria, her diverse array of musical inheritance is beyond measure. Keke began
her interest in music at the early age of five when she developed an interest in
singing. Five years later she expanded into the field of Hip Hop. At the young age
of 10, the fifth grader started writing rhymes to test her lyrical abilities. “I was
really young so I just used to write down words that rhymed, and see which ones
made sense” says the talented rapper. “From ages 10 -12, I was trying to perfect
my writing skills. At ages 12-14, I wanted to master the art of freestyling, and
from the ages of 14-16, I learned how to battle” says Keke. Keke released her first
album entitled “The Story of a Freestyle Pro” in 2003 at the age of 15. The
album carried the hit song “Freestyle Pro” which received radio spins on 89.3
KNON and 97.9 The Beat. When asked of the album, Keke replied, “I did not
want to put out an album until I knew for sure that I was confident with my rap
style and battling techniques”. Keke’s hit song “Freestyle Pro” won her talent
shows, collaborations, street credibility, and the opportunity to make the
introductory song to 97.9 The Beats “Da Show” hosted by radio personalities
Headkrack, Supa K, and Keynote . In 2002, Keke competed in the Mesquite Battle
of the Bands talent show, to which she was the only hip-hop act competing
against nine alternative rock bands. She took home the first place cash prize
consecutively for four years until they retired her from the competition. Through
her participation in the Battle of the Bands, she received features in the Mesquite
News and the Dallas Morning News. Keke had also been featured for eight weeks
on 89.3’s Jam it or Damn it segment as well as 97.9 The Beat’s freestyle battle
contest to which she was the 13-week reigning champ. Both stations eventually
retired her after numerous wins. In 2005, Keke released her mixtape “2 Hot 4
Cd” which helped her build a larger fan base in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
Through this mixtape, she gained visibility in different states, and even received a
feature in southern hip-hop magazine, Block2Block. Keke was also a
performer at the 2005 Texas Summer Music Conference, one of the largest urban
film, fashion and music conferences in the United States. Keke was recognized as
Most Talented at her 2005 Mesquite High School prom, and received this award
again at her college in 2006 through the University of Texas at Arlington’s Alpha
Phi Alpha Collection of Brothers ceremony. In 2007, Keke released a mixtape
titled “The Prototype” which received great feedback from consumers. The
release included an extravagant release party that led to several newly created
avenues. Having graduated in May 2009 with a Bachelors degree in Political
Science and a minor in communications, Keke is back to execute her goals in the
entertainment industry. With a recent appearance made on the Hot 16 segment
of B.E.T.’s “The Deal,” Keke has shown the world that she is back to make her
mark. With the new release of her highly anticipated mixtape titled “The
Beginning of the Future,” Keke has gained a new fan base as well as a new
love for music. She is currently promoting her new single titled “1st Class
Chick” which is now released to the public. With this project, she hopes to gain
the attention of many supporters with her primary goal being in creating an
impact. “I call myself a New Breed of Chick because I know there is no one else
in this world that is like me, and I am here for the greater good. I have been
making music for approximately 13 years now so I am fully equipped. I am here
to raise the bar and set the standards. I am a respectable, classy woman and those
are who I speak for so now that voice must be heard.” With the oversaturation of
the entertainment industry, Keke hopes to set herself apart from other artists in
general and create a new path strictly for her. What’s next for Keke? The
possibilities are limitless. One thing she believes is, with God on her side, she has
nowhere to go but up.

Be On The Look-Out: Artist of the Week- Nova AKA Boom

A true artist standing at 6 feet tall it is obvious that Nova is a force to be reckoned with. Besides the street credit he has received all over NYC in the past 10 years he is also known for being a beast on the mic. Rashaun Lovitt better known by his stage name Nova aka Boom, was born August 29 1987 in Jamaica Hospital at 8:53 p.m. He grew up in Jamaica Queens, New York with his mother, grandparents and younger sister. During his early childhood Nova spent a great deal of time with his grandmother who mostly listened to Motown greats such The Temptations, The Manhattans, Earth Wind and Fire, and Rick James, but it wasn’t until the age of 8 that he began listening to hip hop. At the age of 12 in the 7th grade he began rapping under influence of his cousin Christopher “Blitz” Middleton. They formed a group called The Fully Loaded Assassins that consisted of Blitz, Nova and two other members. The group did not last long because its members were all very young, inexperienced and none of them took the work seriously. Nova still continued rapping but only with neighborhood friends. He continued his education at St John’s High school. While there he met a local rapper named Queenz and before long they became good friends. During Nova’s first two years of high school he did not show any of his rapping abilities. Although most of the local rappers rapped on train and bus rides home, that did not interest Nova. While he did support is friend Queenz when he battled on the train, Nova thrived for more. After two years in St John’s Nova transferred to Newtown High School. In Newtown he ran into Blitz again. Blitz had been working on a solo album after have some problems with his prior group and asked Nova to get on a track with him. Rashaun recorded his first verse on Blitz’s “Taken’em Down” and soon after recorded another verse on Blitz’s “How can I Make You See” which became a hit at their high school. After hearing these two tracks many people wanted to hear more from Nova. Knowing of the building anticipation, Nova worked on getting his first mixtape released.

By the age of 17 Nova hit the recording studio. Right from the start he used an array of styles, lyrics and flows and collaborated on songs with various artists such as Quenna Ariel and of course Blitz and thanks to great beat makers like Jewlz there was no denying Novas talent. While working on the mixtape he took some time out to build Team Blaze Entertainment with the help of Blitz. This is when Nova started realizing many things although he never spoke particularly about it; he says "it felt great; I love the feeling of music". Nova released his first mixtape under Team Blaze Entertainment entitled "Any Questions" on June 19, 2007. The majority of "Any Questions" was produced by Jewlz who is a great producer according to Nova.

After graduating high school Nova began exposing his music throughout the boroughs. He performed at places including; Crimson Lounge, Bronx, NY in September 2005, Don Hills, New York, NY in June 2006, Summer Fest, Brooklyn NY August in 2007, Who Got Next, New York , NY in October 2007 and Public Assembly in March 2009. As well as doing performances Nova was also interviewed by Drahma Magazine in March 2009 however the issue has not yet been published. Nova is now working on the second mixtape entitled "Just Practicing" which is scheduled to release May 2010. Nova also plans to release the sequel to Any Questions in the future. In September 2009 formed a trio with Frank "Emek" Pijuan and Andrew "Emanon" Dominguez. The trio is better known as the "Sons of New York". Sons of New York mixtape entitled My Stress Therapy is scheduled to release summer of 2010.

Be On The Look-Out: Artist of the Week- Mav

The struggle, the fight, the pain, the endless day's, and sleepless nights shaped him to be what he is today. He carved a path in his destiny so he could become the right hand of god lyrically. A lyrically blessed individual that refused to be restrained to poverty by societies shackles, Cypher unleashed his wrath upon the world at a very young age. The artist Cypher who later became MAV to honor his fallen confidant (VER R.I.P) ripped through the lyrical scene and took the game hostage, the ransom is high and the bar was set. MAV was born in October in the windy city of Chicago to a Laredo born mother and a father born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. MAV was raised in a single mother household, his parents divorced at age 5. His childhood wasn’t typical to that of other children. It was full of battles and struggles both inter and intrapersonal. As a young child MAV became acquainted with the “struggle” concept. During his childhood he witnessed things most people won’t ever witness in their lifetime. Seeing his first murder at the tender age of four. All the adversity he faced through the years did not discourage him from reaching his dream. MAV came to many crossroads; chose the wrong path at times but he made it all work to his advantage and never walked the same road twice. Theft, drugs, violence, and music; MAV was a young competitor in many areas of life. As a young contender in the Chicago area MAV was making big moves in the local scene. He has a record on and off the streets. MAV was a young hustler in the making, a shot caller on the rise. MAV's rise to fame wasn't an easy road to success, he slipped, he fell, he struggled to get where he's at today. With the spirit of a fighter and the wisdom of a hustler MAV was able to become an entrepreneur not only paving the way for him self but also kicking down the door for other local artists to strive. Thus the beginning of an Urban Media Buzz was created. His credibility is flawless, his rapport unsurpassable. He performed with artists expanding from East Coast to the West Coast and everything in between. MAV performed with artists such as Chingo Bling, Pitbull, Ludacris, Malverde, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Lil Rob, Baby Bash, Immortal Technique, and many more. MAV joined Sol Camp in 2005; he has put out 1 album, 5 mix tapes, and 3 mix tapes since becoming a member of SOL camp. MAV has indeed worked hard to earn the title of Freestyle Battle champ 9 times consecutively and has been Arizona’s 1 Latin rapper by Xpoz Magazine time and time again since 2006. The very talented MAV has been in Dub Magazine, Arizona State Press, Press Boxx just to name a few. This unprecedented lyricist known as MAV has brought his own twist to the game. His undeniable talent is felt and heard on every bar he spits. Mix tape to album and everything in-between. His talent does not only include rapping, he is a writer, and an entrepreneur. He is the co-founder of dedicated to opening the door for the local starving artists. MAV should be considered a threat. He is passionate, he has dedication, he is humble, and he has the recipe for success. With various projects in the works he has no time for play. The time he spent in the struggle made him realize it’s all about the hustle. MAV has a variety of plans for the near and distant future. Such as the release of his latest Mix Tape “Pages from My RhymeBook” and the release of his album “Independent Hustlin” early 2010. These are very highly anticipated by his vast range of followers. MAV is bringing life to the game! Hip Hop was never dead it was just preparing itself for this MC. It is with out a question that MAV is on the rise! Talent of his caliber is indisputable Lady’s and gentlemen, boy’s and girl’s are you ready world? I present to you MAV, the number One contender: the titleholder chosen by the people for the people. All other “rappers” take out a pen and paper take notes. MAV is the future of music. by erika sanchez
