The Heat Magazine recently published a feature interview with King EGO, a rising lyrical talent. Check it out here:

(HEAT EXCLUSIVE) King EGO, Hollygrove artist on the rise

WARRIOR: A PERSON ENGAGED OR EXPERIENCED IN WARFARE; SOLDIER;
A PERSON WHO SHOWS OR HAS SHOWN GREAT VIGOR, COURAGE, OR AGGRESSIVENESS, AS IN POLITICS OR ATHLETICS.

New Orleans‘ infamous 17th Ward neighborhood Hollygrove has birthed many a musical legend. And it touts some of the most resilient, unique, talented, and beautiful people that can be found anywhere in the world. Hollygrove is indeed a glistening one-of-a-kind diamond in the rough.

Meet King EGO, another one of Hollygrove’s hidden gems. A fiercely intellectual and artistic leader with the heart of a lion, this warrior leaves no stone unturned in his quest for making some of the dopest music around.

King EGO is one of those artists that never ceases to amaze. From his endless vocabulary to his quick wit and epic storytelling ability, he makes sure to leave his mark on every track he graces.

We caught up with him this weekend and learned a lot of about King EGO. Check out his interview:

Devious: musical architect who helped shape today’s bounce sound

“We gonna start this thing off right – we got Devious in the house tonight!” – From 1992’s hit single “Where They At”

New Orleans legend Devious (and of course, Hollygrove’s own) has long been a mainstay in urban music. His new single “Bounce That” was released just as Drake’s new singles are working to bring New Orleans’ unique and often imitated/never fully duplicated sound to the world! Super producer BlaqNMild created the track and added his awesome flavor to the already delicious recipe. Yes folks, it’s an exciting time in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Devious has long worked as an architect of New Orleans’ exciting sound, most notably for his historical work on DJ Jimi’s 1992 hit single “Where They At”. In fact, that song solidified the careers of not only Jimi, but Devious and Mellow Fellow and led to an explosion of Bounce Music as an entire sub-genre. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we must put it out there that New Orleans culture created Bounce. The city’s own legends catapulted it into mainstream. Once it took its place in music history, artists such as Drake and T.I. helped to make the sound travel even further around the globe – BUT credit must be given to those who created, cultivated and nurtured Bounce and New Orleans music in the beginning! Devious is one of those “bricklayers”.

“Bounce That” is available at all digital outlets. A full length album entitled “The Narrative” will soon be released by Devious and you can expect to see some memorable collaborations on deck. Devious is a highly lauded, talented and awarded songwriter, artist, entreprenuer, educator, and mentor who has been busy gaining songwriting credits with Cardi B, Lil Duval, Project Pat, and more. As of late, BlaqNMild has been producing for Drake on “Nice For What” and “In My Feelings”, as well as on Devious’ upcoming album.

Be on the lookout for Devious’ new video and single “Coffee House” feat another legendary Hollygrove MVP, Fiend. In fact, be on the lookout for Devious and BlaqNMild to continue adding to the history of New Orleans’ beautiful entertainment resume!

@JASONLYRIC releases visuals to “Justice” (VIDEO)

ctfhu8guaaetmpf

In what in probably one of the most remarkable projects by a music artist this year, J Lyric (@JASONLYRIC) just released the visuals to “Justice”, a new song based on current events and the historically racist acts and injustices perpetrated in the U.S.

In “Justice”, J Lyric stands up to racism, classism, and greed, and he makes a solid statement against those social ills that seem to have brought the country to its knees in the recent past.  He also seeks to show nothing but respect for heroes like Colin Kaepernick, the NFL star who took a stand against police brutality and state sanctioned killings of African-Americans, through the use of deadly force during traffic stops and similar situations.

Follow J Lyric on his journey not only as a music artist, but also on his quest to shine a light on the dark areas that have contributed to injustices perpetuated on countless Americans – for if we do not admit mistakes have been made and strive to fix them, none of us can live up to the potential that we, as human beings, have a duty to live up to – our children’s dreams, as well as our own, will cease to exist until and unless we begin to figure out how to right the wrongs of our past.
