Thank you Kwame!!! (:
I listened based off of UHTN's own LowKey opinion...
"I have NEVER heard of these guys, but off first listen? Their music is pretty dope. They’re called Great People based out of Orlando Florida. Their music is somewhat trippy with slick lyrical banter that you just have to rock to. The beats have a drop of Jazz influence but keeps the hip-hop feel without attempting to keep it if that makes sense. Out of the five track project, “Tunnel Vision” is my favorite. I’ll provide a link IN the tracklisting just so you can preview their product and decide whether or not you want to download the offering. But if you had to ask me? I think you should!"and I must say it was definitely worth it!

So, my favorite LA Songwriter, Producer, Singer, humble guy, Micahfonecheck is finally starting to let the singles out. He teamed up with fellow LA Native Kendrick Lamar for this uptempo banger. Though the track is a little different for Kendrick, he delivers, as usual. Micah does no wrong in my book. He's well established in the songwriting world, and now he's branching out and becoming the artist. I'm exited for this. He's a true talent with many gifts. (The writing, his ear for music and his amazing voice, just to name a few.) Micah is amazing and I cannot wait for the world to take to him! Keep it up!

This is what happens when Waka Flocka takes over at the office. SPIN hands over the keys to Waka, who happens to be on the cover of the magazine’s May/June issue. Waka participated in meetings, giving editorial suggestions. He also went apesh*t when someone raids the fridge and eats his hummus. It's hilarious! Check it out.

Brandon Hines aka B.Hines, as us Lifers (Living The Life, Jermaine Dupri) knows him. This guy voice is amazing! Alongside Luke James, Kevin Cossom, Sammie, Frank Ocean, Miguel and etc. Brandon has the potential to bring R&B back to the state it belongs in. Not today's mainstream R&B, the real deal. Like the music and songs where, lyrics actually meant something. A story being told. People being able to relate. Brandon has a nice set of people backing him. He has Jermaine Dupri, Bryan Cox, Johnta Austin to name a few. But anywho, check out his video for "Yes You Are."
"ThisisRnB recently caught up with 3x Grammy nominated songwriter Claude Kelly for an in-depth interview. In this clip Claude talks about flourishing R&B singer Luke James.
I want more people to see Luke do what he does … the more people that see him live and what he can do, they are going to be blown away. Luke can sing anybody out of the water…and he is charming, he’s a star, he has stage presence, he’s a cool dude, very humble, very nice. If all’s fair in this world, he’ll get the shot that he deserves, and he’ll be a very successful artist.”
Claude is not only a huge fan of Luke, but they have collaborated together on 3 songs for the New Orleans native’s debut album. “They are R&B records, and the focus was his voice, everyone else is trying to be slick, auto-tune it up…I was like dude just sing! It’s a melody and he is saying honest stuff… it wasn’t complicated.”
Watch as Claude co-signs Luke, and talks about their studio session. Stay tuned for more from our interview with Claude Kelly coming soon!

Kevin Cossom gives us the visual work for "Overflow." One of my favorite songs, and one of my favorite writers whose now pursuing his dreams of being the "Artist." I actually got to see him live at the NARS showcase at SOB's in NYC back in February. He's truly amazing and I cannot wait for him to get on. Be on the lookout!
Nardwuar interviews Kendrick Lamar during the SXSW 2012 festivities. (This is also one of my favorite interviews) Nardwuar is so clever and witty. Kendrick was tickled and shocked by pretty much all of the information Nardwuar knew. Overall, it's a funnnnny interview. Check it out.
This by far is one of my favorite Luke James interviews. Luke James sat down with Frequency News Tv to talk about the music industry, writers/artist he likes, songs he's written and much more. It truly is a great interview. Check it out! For part.2 hit the jump!
October's Very Own, OVO40 who as some of us may know, by watching and hearing Drake interviews, has Multiple Sclerosis. In this interview he talks about what it was like to receive the diagnosis, the sensory problems he was facing, him not being able to walk and how he deals with everyday life. He's also taken the initiative to use his celebrity to bring awareness to The National MS Society. Such an inspiring story. Check it out and learn about Multiple Sclerosis HERE.
"MS kills connection. Connection kills MS."
"Big Sean talks to Mando Fresko about sophomore album, G.O.O.D. music album and confirms Mike Posner mixtape. He also talks PETA, explains how "Mercy" came together and how a fan inspired his song off his new album "One Man Can Change the World." Sean adds how 'progression' plays a big part in his life, says Kanye always tells him "I want you to be better than me," and ladies, is Big Sean single? Find out."
Started off a little shaky, but Frank Ocean worked it out. Some songs he performed was "Strawberry swing", "Thinking About You", "Swim Good", "Whip Appeal" and countless other hits. Frank also brought out his Odd Future buddy Tyler The Creator to perform "Analog" and the fans went crazy. Overall, I loved the set. Check it out.
"Fresh of his Coachella performance, Kendrick Lamar drops by the Skee Lodge for an exclusive interview with DJ Skee. KL discusses his new single "The Recipe", and tells the story of his journey with TDE and trusting Dr. Dre with his career. KL says "[my goal is to] change the face of what people see hip hop to be today."
Schoolboy Q talks with Cipha Sounds & K.Foxx about everything from "Hands on the wheel", drinking lean(Codeine and Sprite), to crooked doctors. Check it out.
Rocnation's own Rita Ora releases her video for "How We Do." Love her, her voice is amazing, but I'm not in love with this video. The song is fun, so in my opinion the video should portray that and from what I see, Rita is the only person truly enjoying the "party."It's just a bit blah... for me anyway.

You still get the grittiness out of her but her writing has definitely improved. Although Lore'l has always been slick and clever with her metaphors. To download and see the tracklist for Leading Lady, hit the jump!
King Mez decided to go with a J.Cole production for his first single off of his upcoming album, My Everlasting Zeal which is dropping May.15th. This is definitely a solid first single. Be sure to be on the lookout for My Everlasting Zeal!
Meek uses this "Faded Too Long" video to show the good he does in his community. Although some people has him painted as this "hood gangster" he shows that he is concerned with helping better his community. Meek and Lou Williams, who plays for the Philadelphia 76er's and happens to be one of Meek's best friends make sure during the winter the less fortunate in Philly have the things they need for the winter. From Winter coats, to hats, scarves and gloves, these guys do the best that they can. It's rare to see people of their caliber who are actually hands on with their charity's and dealing with giving back. So with that being said I applaud Lou and Meek for all the work they do that goes unnoticed.
Kanye West has signed Q-Tip to the G.O.O.D Music clan! Q-Tip's album "The Last Zulu" is set to drop sometime next year.
"I’m excited to be a part of the great iconic Def Jam label. I’m humbled to be a part of such a storied history. To reconnect with Barry Weiss is a great thing. As far as G.O.O.D. Music, I’m excited to solidify my working relationship with Kanye, and I look forward to all the opportunities that lie ahead in our partnership. I will do my best to present the most cutting edge music I can."
