I am a 17 year old artist from Philadelphia, Mississippi. I grew up around music. My purpose is to make songs that take you on a journey of variations in hip-hop that are relatable to aspects of life but with the intent to give you the ultimate listening experience.
My influences are everyone in the culture from the artists, producers, dancers, video directors, and etc who puts it down every single day for the culture and to make sure that hip-hop has a platform.
My music influences span the globe of all genres. And because I do listen to so many styles of music, my creativity has no limit when it comes to me making music. I truly appreciate the artform of music and I work to make sure my music reflects that.
Video titled "Billie Jean":
Malik delivers a vibe type track in which he raps about the tug of war being played between him and a female he refers to as Billie Jean.
The lyrics paint a vivid description of how Billie Jean and Malik are playing a game of cat of mouse that is camouflaged through fragile feelings and material things.
My name is Najee Island also known as JEE from Richmond,California. I’m a 25 year old single father grinding trying to make it to the next level. Being an independent artist is hard having to pay for studio time, beats, music videos, promotion, etc. A lot of people don’t see what goes on behind the music they just see the music and videos. They don’t see the long hours in the studio, sleep less nights or even dealing with our own individual life. Being an artist In the Bay Area is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. In the Bay Area a lot of talent get’s over looked due to popularity. In addition the people won’t support you out here until you’ve blown up already. It’s hard trying to be an independent artist trying to survive when you have to pay bill’s, take care of home, work a 9-5 and provide for your daughter. I do everything on my own with the help of my family. The sticks & stones visual you see below was a piece I put together when you going through every day struggle living in a Violent environment. I just wanted to share my experiences living in those type of environments with the world. I know their are people from all over the world who can relate. Being where I’m from comes with you being exposed to things you wouldn’t see in regular households. I share my pain and experiences over the course of my 25 years of living with everyone because I do have a story to tell. Even if I don’t get chosen for a beat. I’m still humbled to be chosen and looked upon. All I need is for someone to believe in me.
Soaring high out of Louisville, Kentucky is none other than female emcee Louie Moe! On Monday (April 12th), the Louisville rhymer dropped off her latest video titled, Players Anthem on WorldStar. Garnering such great feedback from her release, the music video accumulated over 1 million views and counting.
Keeping up the female trend… Louie Moe of course taps a female director to bring her record to life. The Shanice Raynell-directed visual does just that — continuing to push forward the significance behind this female empowering anthem. The pro-feministic anthem encourages women to focus on themselves rather than being distracted by outside influences.
In the visual, Louie appears to be having the time of her life as she laughs, dances, and twerks her night away in a hotel surrounded by friends. You can also see scenes of Louie rapping to the camera in a stylish pink two-piece intermixed with scenes of her in Louis Vuitton pajamas. Throughout the record, Louie raps about not tolerating bullsh*t from anyone, particularly men, and quickly cutting them off if “they act funny.”
“You can’t be bae if you ain’t never blow da pistol, shooters get to shoot their shot, they better throw a missile,” she says.
Letting everyone know that she doesn’t mess around and that whoever is brave enough to shoot their shot better come correct.
Born on the West Side of Louisville, Kentucky, Louie Moe comes from a big family with six sisters who were all raised by her mother. At the tender age of 7, Louie began tinkering with music before her passion for the art grew. Listening to the music her uncle shared with her as a kid is one of Louie’s fondest memories. Growing up in the hood, Louie experienced both the pros and cons of it. Despite missing a significant amount of school due to her family’s frequent moves, Louie graduated from high school with honors.
Louie Moe’s musical debut came as her single titled, “First Day Out (Remix). Her first official video for “First Day Out” went viral without any kind of label backing or promotion. This is because Louie stands out from the crowd because she isn’t afraid to say what she thinks. She produces a vibe that is instantly relatable whether it’s upbeat or laid back, bringing more than sex appeal to her records.
Louie has always found music to be a source of healing, and she hopes that her music has the same effect on others. Louie’s motivation for making music is to be a voice that cures others. She wants to curate the go-to music that people can listen to when they need to escape.
Louie writes music that is both entertaining and true to her life and experiences. Her biggest musical influences are NBA Youngboy and Tupac, while her biggest fashion stars are Aaliyah and Rihanna. Louie’s key career goal is to be successful enough to encourage others to follow their dreams the same way that she did. Louie’s brand is known as “Da Army,” and it continues to expand daily.
Louie was most recently featured on Troy Ave’s Troy Ave Volume 1 and is currently promoting her latest single “Player’s Anthem,” which debuted recently on Worldstar. Louie Moe’s self-titled debut project, Louie Moe features a number of standout tracks, including “Player’s Anthem” listen here today!

Welcome to Women’s History Month brought to you by the ladies of music this year. Certified Gold Songwriter AdELA taps producer Ms Madli and artist Alondra Rich for an all female led single titled “My Green”
The trendy single was curated in pre-pandemic New York at the renowned IMI Studios. Written a year ago, at an all-female songwriting camp, “My Green,” comes as an inspiring female anthem with furious energy. It unapologetically opposes complacency and inspires women to get to the bag.
“In the music industry, women are often overlooked when it comes to the business side of things,” says the rapper “In addition, despite a highly competitive environment we are always expected to remain co-operative and pleasant. This track serves as a reminder that we mean business, our time is money, and we are coming for the bag.”
AdELA’s laid-back vocals and bossy lyrics paired with Alonda’s velvety adlibs are laid over a trap-hop instrumental. Producer Ms Madli, was instantly attracted to the sound and realized it would be suitable for AdELA. Fast forward to March of 2021 and the ladies are here with all of their green!
In her all-new “My Green” visual, AdELA establishes herself as a boss. AdELA’s DIY sensibilities are on display as she styled, shot and directed the music video herself.
In the video, AdELA confidently raps to the camera while steadily flexing her “green” and inspiring other women to do the same. AdELA appears in four different outfits throughout the video, each highlighting her “green.” The first look we see is a gold metallic dress with a fur coat.
The second look is a Louis Vuitton outfit, which she wears while rapping “The only way I like my green is in my purse,” highlighting her drive and direct focus. AdELA also references Gucci as she raps, “Gucci hoodie with the logo” in front of a Gucci backdrop, which tells us some of what she spends her “green” on.
The final two looks are all-black ensembles with gold accents, Gucci, and gold chains. Demonstrating a different side of AdELA, while still conveying the same message of getting to the bag and being proud of it.
AdELA is no stranger to the rap game, having released three EPs with heavy hitters like Fat Joe, Royce Da5’9, and others. Her contributions to Meek Mill’s “Wins and Losses” album earned her one of her greatest accolades. AdELA earned her first RIAA Certified Gold credit as a co-writer and performer on Meek Mill’s “Made it From Nothing.”
AdELA is a triple-threat. She’s a singer, songwriter, and rapper who’s enjoying the fruits of her efforts to achieve stardom. The tenacious South African-born, Atlanta-based beauty inherited her determination to live the life she desired from her parents. After her family left lucrative jobs in South Africa in the 1990s to flee apartheid.
AdELA’s family moved to Miami when she was young, introducing her to a wide range of musical styles, including Miami Bass, Nas, Tupac, Royce Da5’9, and Frank Sinatra. All of whom she describes as “timeless and an inspiration for her own imagination.”
AdELA is a multi-talented creative with a very promising career in this industry. Her vibe and vocals are like a breath of fresh air. The soaring songstress is just getting started so be sure to not miss out on music’s next biggest star.
Directed by Ben Marc [Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz], the clip features BIA in a series of eye-popping vignettes. PAPER Magazine calls BIA “an absolute financial fatale” in the video as she raps by a fire on a plush vintage green couch, takes over kiddie rides with an equally fly girl gang, and saunters through a bodega with Justin Combs behind the counter counting racks. Flexing in designer head-to-toe, she literally brings the lyrics, “I put on my jewelry just to go to the bodega, and I keep it with me just so that I’m feeling safer,” to life. Fittingly, it culminates with bills upon bills raining down in the strip club.
To create the video’s series of coveted looks, BIA worked with stylists Grace Butler and Tyrina Lee and styled BIA in designers like Chanel, Fendi, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga and more.
Tracks from For Certain have cumulatively amassed over 30 million streams and counting. HotNewHipHop ranked it “VERY HOTTTTT,” while Complex claimed, “BIA is wrapping up 2020 with a bang.” Beyond looks from Nylon, Refinery29, and more, FLAUNT put it best, “Bia’s time is now! Hailing from Boston, the rising star has been grinding and putting in the work, creating nothing short of bangers for her growing fanbase.”
Stay tuned for more from BIA soon.
Spitting with agile aggression, dropping clever observations, and pouncing like a panther on every beat, BIA rips through rap with a feral intensity. Acclaimed by the likes of Wonderland Magazine and Billboard and also streamed nearly half-a-billion times to date, the platinum-certified Boston-born and Los Angeles-based artist emerges as a fierce, fiery, and focused force.
In 2019, BIA teamed up with Russ for “Best On Earth”. Not only did the song achieve platinum certification and reach #46 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on at Radio, but Rihanna also posted a video with “Best On Earth” playing in the background and declared it, “my new fav song.” Now, BIA continues her new chapter with EPIC with her latest release “Same Hands” featuring Chicago’s own Lil Durk.
BIA was also featured in the Good American Spring 2020 clothing campaign and was the face of the Missguided x Sean John capsule collection for Fall 2020
Music Video Performance by Ortega The Omega. Filmed at Venice Beach, California October 26th 2019 pre Covid-19. Produced by Bvtman. New single Ocean Views from the Fast Food Money album.
Ortega The Omega is a talented artist with a passion for old-school hip-hop.
Hailing from Los Angeles, but now residing in Salt Lake City, this charismatic rapper managed to combine stunning melodies with infectious grooves and great beats, in order to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound.
Ortega The Omega’s recent album release, Fast Food Money, is a great example of his sonic vision, marking a really unique step forward for this artist, whose sound is becoming increasingly more personal and define, one release at a time.

Growing up in Kuwadzana Extension, Zimbabwe and having the opportunity to move to Ontario Canada, Takunda says “I have seen the world from both perspectives, coming from humble beginnings and now being in the space that I’m in right now, I feel like the sky’s the limit.”
Takunda is an upcoming artist who uses music as therapy-as a way to reflect where he is in life, always strive to bring out authenticity, excellence and vulnerability in any project that he is involved in. The goal behind his music is to make his audience feel what he is experiencing mentally, emotionally and perhaps try to relate with what he is going through. He strives to make music that connects with his audience because someone out there may be feeling similar emotions and not know how to express them. He appreciates the beauty of his craft and take inspiration from artists who are able to make relatable content that really makes you feel something.
In his debut EP “Eden” Takunda opens up and shows us a more vulnerable side of himself, taking us on a roller coaster ride through the highs and lows of his relationship. The visual is from the opening track “Bad Choices”, it starts by painting a picture of a guy trying to reach his girl, but the call is sent to voicemail. It is from this unsettling lead up that the song begins. The verse express his plea for his woman to give him a second chance, despite his transgressions and work out their relationship. At the end of the track, the visual transitions to the second song on the EP called “EG”. Which is a statement of him taking back his life and basically living his life on his own terms.
All the while, the production and lyrical complexity of the project shines through. This up and coming Zimbabwean artist is one you do not want to sleep on.
