(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:
“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!
HKMGMIKODreamz PR client/CEO and flagship artist Breadman is cooking up some big things. He is preparing to attend and perform at Austin’s upcoming SXSW, not to mention he dropped a new video earlier today.
“Other Sh*t” is available on You Tube and the song will be available everywhere music is sold/streamed. Breadman continues to make the most of 2018’s First Quarter, as he prepares to heat up the Second Quarter.
New Orleans‘ own JAYARSON just dropped new visuals to #BarsWithJAYARSON. In it, he shows off his lyrical ability in one minute. The series appears across social media and is definitely raising the bar for lyricism.
Client Dee Day is ratcheting up his early 2017 endeavors by releasing “Hold Up”, his new single with G-Unit superstar Kidd Kidd.
Dee Day is not only one of the most prolific artists to hit the scene in the last several years, but his work ethic is unrivaled. It certainly won’t be long before XXL names him as a Freshman, though he’s no new comer to the rap game!
Their single release party is this Friday at Bourbon Heat, New Orleans, Louisiana. Blue Moon, the new collaboration, is coming February 21st.
The legend himself Jay Da Menace (J-Dawg of Black Menace) just released the artwork for his upcoming mixtape “I Took Yo Beat”. The tape will be released on December 13th and is highly anticipated by his fan base. It will be the first in several years for one of Hollygrove’s originators and MVPs.
The double album “Real Rap” is set for release in April of 2017. XLP Distribution will distribute the project.
