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:
New Orleans, Louisiana based Phreedom Records makes sure its artists are ALWAYS working. From keeping them grounded in the studio with the dopest of producers, to touring the Deep South as it recently has been doing with flagship artist Lucki Lew, Phreedom stays working.
Lucki Lew is well-known for his hit single “Hot Spot“, most recently remixed to include a feature with mover and shaker Level. He now has “My Lil Yeah” out on all digital platforms; it features Louisiana standout Tweeday.
Dope rapper and entertainment personality Hollygrove Keem just dropped the visuals to his new song “Go To Hell”. Its lyrics are deep and thought provoking and provide a little insight into the often times bleak world of young men in New Orleans, Louisiana. The video was filmed and directed by @TheFamousPhil.
It’s our hope that through talented lyricists such as Keem, positive changes will come about and opportunities will increase.
Keem is not only one of the hottest and most recognizable rappers in the country – he’s also quickly becoming one of the brightest and strongest forces in urban music. His raw but colorful storytelling ability enables his listeners to enter his world and really be able to decipher what’s happening from afar – so much so that he has been nominated for awards by the NOLA Music Awards, numerous times in multiple categories.
Keem is one of Hollygrove’s shining superstars. His association with 0017th conmbined with networking capabilities has helped to catapult him to notoriety. He is preparing to drop new music that includes tributes to his late great partner-in-rhyme, BTY YoungN.
Stay tuned for much more from Hollygrove Keem. Follow him:
Two of our favorites have to be BTY YoungN and GreatWhite Stylez.
Not only is their energy is contagious and their personalities so much fun, but their lyrical ability is off the chart, especially when they collaborate. Check out their latest video for “Mac & Brad”, filmed by New Orleans’ own dope videographers Free Water!
Officially it’s only been about 24 hours since the “I Took Yo Beat” mixtape debuted from Jay Da Menace. Unofficially, it’s already a hit – give it a few days and that will be official, too.
Jay Da Menace is the legendary New Orleans pioneer formerly known as J-Dawg. Not only did he start Black Menace, but he was also the President of independent label Big Boy Records, known for churning out more talent than a little – talent that included Mystikal, Fiend, The Ghetto Twiinz, Partners-N-Crime, Tim Smooth, and many more.
This latest offering is giving Jay Da Menace fans a taste of what they can expect when he officially drops his double album “Real Rap”, slated for release in March of 2017.

Following a much needed hiatus, Y.LUCK is back with a new single “Trap Song Bout Money”, the first off the upcoming album, “IH8RAP”.
His fans have been begging for a release, so Y.LUCK thought this was be a great way to finish out 2016 and start 2017 out strong. We’re already getting feedback from DJs and bloggers and it’s all good!
