Judah Gives You ............. @AREOHDMUSIC - Left at the light prod. by Nguyen Duyanh

Jahrod Coates (also known as are.oh.d) is a singer/songwriter from the DMV area. He was born in San Diego, CA and raised in PG County, MD a small county right outside Washington, D.C. where he spent most of his childhood and teenage years. Jahrod started singing at the young age of 1. “I’ve been singing ever since I could talk,” are.oh.d expressed, “Singing is all I know, I can't and won’t do nothing else but sing. Whenever I get the chance I sing!” He spent most of his childhood singing in the church choir and various groups. “Mom’s made sure I was in church." It wasn't until the age of 21 when Jahrod wrote his very first song entitled, “Steady Switchin.” From there, he continued his music career writing, producing, and recording. His newest track "Left at the Light" is the first single from his upcoming EP entitled "Innuendos" set to release later this year. The track is about replenishing his relationship that has fallen by the wayside over the past years. It starts off as him leaving his girlfriend because of his wrongdoings. But as the song progresses he realizes the love he has for her overpowers his faults and decides to come back and make it right.

Judah Gives you..... @FootwerkBand - Retrograde [VIDEO] @QuinelleHolder

"Retrograde," the title track single from Footwerk’s forthcoming EP, is the result of a spontaneous trip to Black Rock Desert's annual Burning Man celebration in Nevada. Just before hitting the road from his hometown of DC, the band's lead vocalist, Kyle meets a gypsy princess who would accompany him on a cross-country tour bus ride in search of the adult carnival. While in route, the pair were joined by members of the unnamed traveler's hippie tribe. Upon arriving at the dream-like destination, the gorgeous gypsy kept Kyle mellow in the chaos of chasing art cars hosted by Skrillex or Diplo and awkward conversations in group showers. The pursuit of the elusive wanderer culminated at the ritual burning of 'the man', where she told Kyle, "Mercury is in Retrograde" while raving about the universe. It was that night, he wrote "Retrograde" for his free-spirited love interests.

Judah Gives you..... ATCQ's Industry Rule #4080 Gets An Anime Adaptation w/ "The Indies" (2017) [@DJTonyDrake @BlueGeekMusic ]

In 1991, A Tribe Called Quest released 'The Low End Theory.' Though the RIAA certified platinum album boasted standout records like "Jazz (We've Got)", and "Scenario," it was the project's anti-label lead single "Check The Rhime" that took the LP to the next level by flagrantly calling out music executives for their unethical business practices. Unfortunately, 25 years later "record company people are still shady" and don't show any signs of turning over a new leaf.

Looking to showcase the harsh realities of the music and entertainment industry in a creative yet captivating way, Baltimore resident DJ Tony Drake is creating a 2D animated series appropriately titled "The Indies." The pilot episode, produced as a short, will give viewers a glimpse of what they can expect from the Anime & Hip-Hop infused cartoon ahead of its television debut, while proving to Hollywood it can be a major player alongside popular shows of the same caliber. An original Hip-Hop score, recorded at Grammy award winning House Studios DC, will accompany the short as well as all of the forthcoming episodes in the series, fueling each action sequence and setting the mood.

During a recent interview with AFROPUNK Tony shares, “I saw that there currently wasn't an animation that spoke directly to the Hip-Hop community without trying to exploit the culture. We've had shows like The Boondocks and Afro Samurai, but when those went off the air they left a huge void. We're now trying to fill that void with The Indies."

On August 28th, Tony launched a crowdfunding campaign in efforts to raise funds to complete and present the short to networks, production companies and potential investors in Los Angeles. In less than 24 hours, they raised over $4,000. You can support the cause and help him reach his goal of $50K by making a donation on the official KICKSTARTER page HERE.

Summary of The Indies: Set in a futuristic dystopian society, The Indies follows an up and coming rapper named Slick. Born into a well-to-do family living on Earth's Moon, he longs for the opportunity to pursue his dream of becoming a famous recording artist. With a burning desire to make his dreams come true by any means necessary, Slick has a chance meeting with DJ Chops, one of Hip-Hop's biggest DJs and record executives. Slick is offered what seems to be an amazing recording contract, which Slick hastily signs without reading the fine print. Slick soon finds out that not only did he sign up to pursue his dream of being a famous artist, but he also signed up for something much more sinister. You see, what Slick failed to realize is that not only are record labels home to some of the universe’s biggest music stars; they also serve as fronts for hitmen for hire services of nefarious crime lords. In order to free himself from his contract, Slick must now work with his new label mates to release his debut album while simultaneously executing dangerous hit jobs. Through these missions, the label mates will explore morality, loyalty, human nature, and discover who they really are at their core.

Judah Gives you..... @DBBantino @EdgarEstevess - Low [VIDEO]

DB Bantino is hitting his stride during a major year in his career. After working with hip-hop’s finest like French Montana, D.R.A.M, Bone Thugs, and Boosie Badazz, the singer/songwriter from Washington D.C. finally got his international shine when his single with Zoey Dollaz, “Bad Tings,” took over the national airwaves, and sparked a reggae remix of the single — straight out of the Caribbean — from Junior Reid. Now more than ever, DB is ready to cross the finish line to win on his own.

DB is doing the most to prepare us for his solo project 5 In The Valley. He linked with video director Edgar Esteves, who also crafted videos with G-Eazy, Russ, and G4$HI, for his first visual off the project, “Low.” Well before the threat of hurricane season, DB escaped to the islands to shield his new love from the public eye.

Look out for DB Bantino’s project 5 In The Valley coming soon, and watch the world premiere of his new video “Low” below. (Words by Tony Centeno)

Judah Gives you...... @larryharrisjr - Phat Kid Tendencies 2

Larry travelled to sf to write pkt2 and recorded it in Atlanta. It was mixed and mastered in miami by dj d-up, who is also from dc. the producer is an old friend that I played football with in hs at georgetown prep. His name is deep and he is one half of the nyc production duo 2 hungry bros. They produce for a slew of talented rappers including homeboy sandman. Deep sent me these beats while I was in miami, but I never got around to using them. I'm glad i did now. the beats are fire!

Pkt2 is a continuation of my story picking up where the first pkt left off. It is lyrical, has weight and is fun. I tell some stories, get political and look to the future. the reception so far has been warm!
