Judah Gives You......@maimounayoussef NPR Tiny Desk with @BlackThought

Since receiving a Grammy nomination for her vocal contributions to The Roots hit “Don’t Feel Right,” the Baltimore born and DC raised singer, emcee, songwriter, activist, musical healer and cultural philanthropist  Maimouna Youssef (AKA Mumu Fresh) has been making huge waves as both a solo and accompanying artist across a diverse spectrum of mediums.
Outside of her well developed relationship with The Roots (Mumu has traveled worldwide with the group; and also just finished a tour with Common), Mumu lent her vocals to DJ Jazzy Jeff’s group project Chasing Goosebumps and she also received a co-writing credit on Common’s “The Day Women Took Over” from his Black America Again LP.  Most recently she released a full length project, Vintage Babies, (2017) with producer DJ Dummy; who also serves as musical director for J. Cole and accompanies Mumu’s Tiny Desk performance as well.  Vintage Babies featured appearances from Common, TDE’s SIR & Malik Yusef. Later this year, Mumu will release a new project with Grammy Award Winning producer 9th Wonder & The Soul Council entitled, Been Here Before, which will feature Rapsody & Musiq SoulChild among others.
Mumu has also branched out into film and television, lending an unforgettable performance on Dave Chappelle’s hip-hop documentary Block Party, making a cameo appearance in the 2017 hit movie Girls Trip and contributed soundtrack work to OWN Network’s Queen Sugar, “Contradiction’s Maze,”where she collaborated with Oddisee. Further, Mumu’s “Roll On Sista” has also been featured on a national advertising campaign from Ford Motor Company.
No stranger to the “Tiny Desk” stage, as she joined August Greene (Common, Karriem Riggins& Robert Glasper) in late February of this year for a performance that went viral, she kicks off her set with “Ink Pata,” this ode to powerful women and cultural ancestry pays homage to Native Americans spiritual rituals of old and spoke in the Lakota language and then transitions sublimely into “Miracle.” Say My Name” is a tribute to Sandra Bland and many other women whose voices dare to be heard and whose stories haunt us all until we remember their names.  The performance concludes by coming full circle, as Black Thought and Mumu premiere a new and still untitled track that was specifically written for Tiny Desk.  “It was a blessing getting to rock with someone near and dear to me” Thought commented.
"I’ve been a fan of the powerful work NPR has been doing for years and the Tiny Desk concert series has always secretly been on my bucket list” Mumu exclaimed.  “I actually wrote it on my vision board this past New Year's Eve while I was making my new year's resolutions, so this is a beautiful manifestation come true to be able to rock on the Tiny Desk stage with my partner DJ Dummy; not once but twice this year!  The icing on the cake, Black Thought is my special guest. Of all the people in the world, Black Thought, who happens to be one of the greatest lyricists on the planet and the first MC I had the honor of touring and becoming Grammy nominated with, happily agreed to be my special guest. The spirit was high in the room, the impact was felt and history was undeniably made. It’s a blessing that I'm forever grateful for.”

There’s so much on the horizon for Mumu Fresh and this unforgettable NPR Tiny Desk concert is just a chapter in her great adventure.

Judah Gives You........ So You Want to Be A Rapper Music Conference [RECAP] @mediumpragency

The So You Want To Be A Rapper Music Conference went down in Washington D.C. on March 24th, 2018 and it exceeded many "new music conferences" expectations. The conference was curated by Medium PR Agency and was held in the heart of Southeast D.C. It drew artist from Richmond and as far Philadelphia.  The conference provided priceless music business related information to artist, producers and managers in the main presentation while in the breakout rooms the conference offered one on one sessions for artist to speak to experienced music professionals. Most conference don't provide this level of interaction and if so it comes at a high price. 
Even though this is the conferences first year it was an awesome experience for everyone in attendance as well as for the speakers. Please visit www.mediumpragency.com for more information on the company and how to attend next years music conference.


After the debut release of "Waverunner" and over 2 million streams, dope returns with his second full-length release, "DSFM:2" (or DOPEFLAME$ 2). Behind a much darker tone than his previous release, DSFM:2 weaves success, depression, frustrations, police brutality, loyalty and black pride throughout 13 hard-hitting tracks. With production by Tyler O'Neil, HDBi Beats, Chief Shikari and guest appearances from Lil Dream, Friends4vr (Friends Forever), B-Jay Banks, and more, there are a plethora of styles and perspectives to delve into. 

Check out "DSFM:2" below and be on the lookout for much more dope in 2018.
