Here Comes ARI LENNOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Peep Game!!!!

Ari Lennox is new artist erupting bringing a new dimension to the music scene. With profound vocal ability Ms. Lennox fuses jazz, rock, soul with her experimental sound. Picture Billie Holiday, Amy Winehouse, and Milira from back in the day with the fire and soul of Tina Turner. That's about as close as I can come to what I hear when I listen to Ari Lennox.

She has recently released a BANGINASS mixtape titled Five Finger Discount. If you havent heard this young lady you're definately missing a treat. Recently featured on 106 and Park, the 21year old native DC singer is definately carving her own avenue to stardom. Keep your eye on this one and remember who told you!

ERIC ROBERSON Releases New Single

Good music is truly surfacing out of the woodworks this year!

Eric Roberson has just released his latest single titled "Picture Perfect" from his upcoming CD release Mr. Nice Guy. I'm especially excited about this joint because it involves the production of my homie Zachariah McGant aka Slimkat78 and the most impresive Aaron Hardin! These cats collabing together gives Roberson's music the sound I've actually been craving to hear from him! And to add flava to the joint....Phonte provides a profound lyrical delivery over the syncopated dope-a-licious track! CERTIFIED HEAT

I love it when I discover new music that's actually worth listening to!!
This brotha's definately onto something!!!TRUMAINE LAMAR is his name. He steps out on the scene revealing a solid EP with fusions of SOUL and elements of Hip Hop with an undeniable gospel influence. The Nebraska born, Florida bread vocalist/songwriter/producer says that he explores his imagination, and reality in various notions. From songs about struggling with reminiscent feelings of a past relationship, to songs encouraging a positive outlook on life no matter who tries to bring you down, he always finds a way to express a part of himself through his lyrics. He has shared the stage such artists as Chrisette Michele, Lalah Hathaway, Eric Darius, Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond and Mary Mary just to name a few. With his smooth soulful and slightly jazzy vocals, Tru glides his musical creations with ease and passion.COP HIS LATEST EP titled "THINGS I SHOULD HAVE TOLD HER" by CLICKING THE IMAGE...ENJOY!!!

Tracy Cruz releases new project

This talented songstress is just as sweet in spirit as her voice and delivery. I got wind of Tracy a year ago and was instantly hooked on her music. Those of you who have DJ CONSCIENCE's TRUE STORY mixtape that was released last spring through, were able to witness the dopeness of her single "Son-shine". My suggestion is that you not only pick up her newest endeavor "Universal Symphony" but to also grab her first offering titled "Feel'osophy". You can CLICK THE IMAGE to be directed to I-tunes where both are available!!

The Seven EP by Emily King (NICE!!!!)

I was quite impressed with the new release of Emily King's EP The Seven. Emily offers a very melodic, morning glory type of vibe. Do not expect the sound you witnessed on her last release. She's definately widening her spectrum of expression. I'm loving it! Get your copy!
