Veteran New Orleans artist J Lyric has put in a ton of work over the years, but no project has been more representative of his level of talent than the just released “Loyalty Over Love” album. As of midnight New Year’s Day, the project is available everywhere music is sold or streamed.
“Loyalty Over Love” was produced in part by Cas Major and features Chopper Young City, Y. LUCK and Tokyo Vanity. It’s truly a dope project!
“Lunette”, the first single off the album is also the first video to drop. It’s available on You Tube. Watch/Comment/Share and download/stream the album!
“Sacrifice” is defined as giving up something prized or precious. Meet Cass of America, one of New Orleans (the 9th Ward to be exact), Louisiana’s most valuable players in the music game. He knows what it means to sacrifice time and effort in order to elevate his entertainment career to the next level. His team and he are confident that all of his struggles will soon translate to stellar success – there’s a carefully crafted plan in the works for this special artist. Triumph is imminent.
Between Cass of America’s grind and hustle, his Bloodbath moniker and his affiliations with some of the most well-known names in the game, particularly the 0017th imprint, it won’t be long before he takes his place among the superstars of his generation.
Having worked with some of the premiere producers in the Deep South, Cass’ music is not only on a whole other level, but it’s unique and something new altogether. To put it bluntly, he doesn’t sound like anybody else. In an age of artists and labels set on copying one another, Cass is a breath of fresh air – one that’s long been needed in Hip Hop – and one that stands apart from many of his counterparts.
Check out his new interview with One Shot Films.

Artwork for what’s about to be the hottest song of the Summer (“Kitchen Dance”) has been leaked. The late great BTY YoungN and the hot young lyricist Hollygrove Keem put together this masterpiece shortly before YoungN’s untimely death. The track is produced by super producer KC.
Visuals were shot and edited by 2K Films and have a pending release date. The video features not only BTY YoungN and Hollygrove Keem, but also Mario P (@_mariodacomic_) and some of the cutest little kids you’ll ever see!
Stay Tuned. These two amazing artists are about to turn Summer 2017 white hot!
The words “growth” and “power” come to mind when you think of New Orleans artist Hollygrove Keem.
“Never Loved Us (Promo Tape)” is a 6-track mini-project that serves as the prequel to Hollygrove Keem’s upcoming project, “Never Loved Us”. It is produced in part by super producer KC and features powerhouses such as the late great BTY YoungN, as well as Jay Jones, GreatWhite Stylez, Dash Carrera, and Punn Da Pusha. On April 29th, the world lost an amazing talent in BTY YoungN. His loss has affected Hollygrove Keem and many others who have vowed to make certain the BTY YoungN legacy lives on through his – and their music. One of the cuts off “Never Loved Us (Promo Tape)” is the emotional track “Letter To YoungN”.
Birthed from struggle and polished to diamond-like perfection, this amazing lyricist uses words to paint pictures of his everyday reality. While taking us through descriptions of his world, he manages to shine his bright light. Much can be achieved through hard work and discipline, and Hollygrove Keem is proof of this. His solo work, as well as that with the internationally recognized 0017th, has garnered quite a few accolades, including several NOLA Music Awards.
Hollygrove Keem is becoming a forced to be reckoned with and a lyrical phenomenon. Proof of that can be seen in the sheer number of streams and downloads his work has gotten in recent years, as well as in past media coverage. His most recent retail album is “Cut the Check”, a 13-track project put out by 0017th and one which has been widely acclaimed by critics, fans and music sites. “Never Loved Us” is poised to become another of his works that makes a way for more future greatness.
It will not be long before Hollygrove Keem takes his place among the stars of today’s hip hop music – while aiming for the superstardom that awaits him.
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:
New Orleans’ 17th Ward has long been known as a hotbed of solid and unique talent – a mecca, if you will. The proverbial torch has been handed down from the legends to a new crop of lyrical creatives that includes and is a led by Jay Jones, Hollygrove Keem and prior to his recent untimely death, BTY YoungN. The trio has an amazing and unrivaled energy and are sure to leave quite a mark on the entertainment world.
The trio’s new album “Cut the Check” is a precursor to much more new music, but is a classic in and of itself. “Cut the Check” includes the smash hit with Fetty Wap entitled “The Zoo”, and contains features from the legendary Jay Da Menace (of Black Menace), recent 300 signee Navè Monjo, T3, AR-Ab, Remyboy Monty, and C-Dash. Breakout hit “Stay Down” is also included in the dope tracklisting.
Jay Jones recently began touring with Lil Wayne’s Kloser 2 U Tour and has traveled across the U.S. performing in various shows, including Wayne’s SXSW headlined show. Hollygrove Keem is a sought after rapper, having featured on countless songs with more material set to be released soon. At the time of his death on April 29th, BTY YoungN was a rising star affiliated with Cash Money/Rich Gang, and was a well-known rapper and entertainment personality. His loss created a ripple effect throughout the music world.
“Cut the Check” is available for download/streaming everywhere music is sold, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal, JPay, and hundreds of other international outlets.
