(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!

Evan Golden focuses our eyes on South Florida

From host, print model, entertainment correspondent, philanthropist, athlete, and reality TV star, to being the breakout star on Ivana Trump’s reality show, Evan has been putting in work and seeing massive results.

The Florida native has quite an impressive resume that includes national commercials, TV appearances, hosting, and so much more. He currently hosts “Eye on South Florida”, a role in which he has had the opportunity to interview countless celebrities. In addition, he was recently nominated for the “Real Men Wear Pink Campaign” supporting the American Cancer Society. Evan says he stepped up to help fight breast cancer with all he has, while emphasizing the fact that both women and men can be affected by the disease. Most importantly, Evan says he recognizes that he is in a position of influence and that he is obligated to use his position wisely and to shine his light. All of that aside though, his most important role is likely that of a family man.

Suffice it to say, Evan is a busy man who is using his celebrity for good. It is no wonder why he has been blessed with such golden opportunities. He is truly a one-man show whose talent, personality and high energy stands out. It is because of this that he is highly sought after. It is also because of these qualities that we are confident it will not be long before Evan takes his place among the superstars of his generation.

We recently caught up with Evan Golden and here’s what he had to say:

Growing up, who influenced you the most?

EVAN GOLDEN: My parents influenced me the most. They gave my sister and me the ability to pursue our passions and have showed us the meaning of true love and the importance of family.

You have an interesting story. If you had to pinpoint one moment that solidified your entering the entertainment industry, what would that be?

EVAN GOLDEN: Being cast on Ivana Trump’s reality show, “Ivana Young Man” was one of the most exhilarating television experiences of my life. Ivana Trump personally hand-picked me to be on the show, as I was one of 6 bachelors given the opportunity of luxury, fame and riches. Spoiler Alert – I made it to the Final 2. If you have not watched this reality show, it’s a must see. You will laugh, cry and be in suspense the entire time.

Do you think excelling in sports helps you in your current career?

EVAN GOLDEN: In sports you learn valuable life lessons. You learn how to work as a team, taking directions, making effort, overcoming adversity, and responding to defeat. Practice makes perfect. Many aspects, I use every day in life. I have learned through team and organized sports.

What has been your favorite “gig” so far and why?

EVAN GOLDEN: Hosting the TV Show “Eye on South Florida” is a dream come true. I am able to share all the amazing things happening in our community.

What has been your greatest accomplishment as an entertainment personality?

EVAN GOLDEN: Having a platform to help bring awareness to so many small local non-profit organizations. As the recipient of South Florida Young Leaders in Philanthropy, I have been able to help bring much exposure and have raised thousands of dollars for many local non-profits.

What motivates you?

EVAN GOLDEN: I am motivated to be a good human and role model for my two sons to look up to and be proud of. I am a leader in my community and will help heal us as we try to overcome the Parkland Shooting Massacre.

What are you currently working on?

EVAN GOLDEN: Currently I have been nominated for the “Real Men Wear Pink Campaign” on behalf of the American Cancer Society, so I am raising money for breast cancer.
