There is probably nothing that will wake up the entertainment industry more quickly than a beautiful young female who not only looks the part, but also sounds it. Meet Chloe DeQue, a 17 year old femcee hailing from the cultural mecca known as New Orleans.
Chloe DeQue just dropped her first video, “Wake Up Call”, and it is already getting rave reviews. She isn’t a gimmick rapper – she’s a microphone slayer. Her lyrics are impressive, her vocabulary is broad and her delivery is super quick. Chloe just might be what the industry has been lacking. When asked how she wants to be remembered, she just says, “As a legend.” It’s an almost certainty that will come true.
The visuals to “Wake Up Call” are available on YouTube. The single is available for download and streaming on all digital platforms. The song is produced by legendary trumpeter/Producer Shamarr Allen.

It’s been a while since we had a chance to speak with veteran New Orleans rapper OG JLyric. We recently caught up with him so we can catch up. We learned what he’s working on and what’s next up for this incredible entertainer.

OG JLYRIC: Just working on my craft releasing a few freestyles here and there until I drop my official single “2 Fronts” coming soon.
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: You have such an interesting history in rap music. For our readers who may need a refresher, how did you get your start in music?
OG JLYRIC: I’ve been a fan of music my entire life. I really studied the OGs of New Orleans like UNLV, PNC and artists like that who were successful from as far back as I can remember. UNLV embraced me when I was young and really gave me the game and confidence I needed to move forward.

MIKODreamz PR is excited to announce our representation of one of the most talented lyricists on the planet! Check out the article from The Heat Magazine and stay tuned for much more press in the coming week(s).
You’d be hard pressed to find a lyricist more experienced or more dope than Ninth Ward original Koan Kenpachi. Born and raised in New Orleans, Koan has become a staple in rap music.
He recently dropped “Weirdo”, the first single off his upcoming EP “Supremium”. If you’ve ever heard Koan, then you know the power behind his music. His lyrics are quite impressive and his delivery is impeccable.
The song is available for download and streaming anywhere music is sold. Visuals are available on YouTube.
One of New Orleans’ best kept secret is rapper Black Troy. This Uptown Third Ward lyricist is definitely one who won’t fade away any time soon. His most recent offering, “Earned My Stripes”, is an unforgettable multi-track project that is definitely one of the best to come out of the Crescent City in quite some time.
While Black Troy has made quite a splash in the Down South music scene via his R33ltalk 3nt imprint, if you ask him of his greatest accomplishment, he will likely tell you it is being a proud father of seven boys and one girl. He works hard to make sure his children are successful in life, with him instilling in them great values. They also motivate Black Troy and that enables him to pursue his dreams without end, with hopes they will follow suit. You’d be hard pressed to find such an impressive entertainer as Black Troy. He spends a large majority of his time supporting his sons’ football careers, as well as mentoring youth and motivational speaking.
Make sure you add “Earned My Stripes” to your playlist!
The great Erykah Badu once said, “I planned my success. I knew it was going to happen.” And so it is with New Orleans, Louisiana artist/songwriter/entrepreneur JAYARSON.
JAYARSON is one of the most hard-working rappers of our time. And he is known for consistently dropping projects. His new EP entitled “Hold Us Down” just dropped to wide acclaim. The EP may only offer 6 tracks, but it is a masterpiece in and of itself. He is constantly putting in work and is one of the most sought after featured artists in the South. You can’t write the story of modern Down South rap without including JAYARSON. He is undeniably an icon.
The EP is available for download and streaming on all digital platforms.
There is nothing more special than kids who are larger than life, with huge personalities and intelligence, wisdom and entertainment in their bloodline.
Precious brothers @babymoe17 and @tinymoe17 are the youngest sons of legendary New Orleans entertainer/entrepreneur P Town Moe, a favorite son of the city’s 17th Ward. He is the brainchild behind 7Teen, but you can bet the young Moes are going to show up and show out. They just finished filming the visuals for their first single, “We Lit”, a rousing anthem that is certain to incense other children, but one that is catchy enough, it is sure to have adults jamming it as well. The setting for the video was in New Orleans East, but it brought the city out. Utilizing one of their dad’s party buses, fun jumps and plenty of cameos, the recipe for a dope and fun video shoot was cooked up to much delight. There’s even a scene where the younger Moes rocked the stage! One of the South’s premiere directors, Yuzet Pozo, filmed the video so it’s already guaranteed to be a hit.
A release date for the single and video will soon be set.
New Orleans Rap star on the rise, JAYARSON, teams up with Uptown New Orleans veteran producer KMorGOLD and New Orleans hip hop royalty, Jakk Jo, the Prince son of the Queen of Southern Rap, Mia X. The three team up on KMorGOLD’s tribute instrumental which mixes up sounds of the Big Tymers’ “Get Your Roll On” and the Pharrell track “Frontin”. The video is available on YouTube, with the single available for purchase/streaming on all major digital platforms.
JAYARSON’s nostalgic verse graciously uses “Get Your Roll On” to pay homage to a solid New Orleans classic. Jakk Jo hypes the track with a classic New Orleans chant like “Come On, Come On, Come On”. They team up with Dope Media to create a real picture of daily New Orleans party life. It is a light hearted visual that is really needed at this time!
Though he may be gone in physical form, you’d never know it to hear his family, friends and fans tell it. It’s been a long time coming, but BTY YoungN fans can finally stream and download one of his masterpieces, “Feed Up”.
The 11-track project is now available everywhere music is sold or streamed, including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Amazon Music, and all other major digital platforms. BTY YoungN fans have been asking for the release and Rydamuzik Records, along with the estate of the late great entertainer, obliged. It contains favorites such as “D-Boy”, “When I Was”, “Can Somebody Tell Me”, and more. New music is on its way and should be hitting streaming platforms soon.
The Heat Magazine recently published a feature interview with King EGO, a rising lyrical talent. Check it out here:
