The Slayer is an African based independent hip-hop artist who started rapping at 14. He grew up in Zimbabwe and was inspired by local group, Major Players and internationally by gangsta rap artist 50 Cent. He has done one mixtape called Genesis Vol.1 whose tracks are available on a soundcloud account click here to get the music.
The Slayer is an indendent artist who works with his colleague Raheem King Tonhodzai. Both artists are now South Africa based because of work commitments. They push their music on their own through social media and independent artist blogs. They also burn and print a few CD's to carry around and sell the traditional way as they say it is a strategy that works in South Africa. The Slayer revealed that Raheem supported him with morale and financially through-out what he calls The Green Gang Project. He has also worked with The Crowne Prince and Kid, who happen to be his personal friends.
"I just think my music is for the people in the streets hustling and trying to make a living and am a lil bit trying also to make my music reach the whole Africa ,that's my target, " he said, when we asked him about his target market. This in my opinion will require a lot of hard work, both on the music production side and knowledge of industry. So I challenge The Slayer to keep pushing and be part of all forms of workshops in his area that better his craft and his management skills.
While he's at it, do take time to visit Green gang Project hulkshare and download their music. If you like what you hear, like and re-share. Comment on the music on the site itself.

The West Coast has gained a following for being a purely gangsta rap scene, but the LA-based newcomer Pawz One challenges this ideology with the release of his debut album Face The Facts. Though the 18 track project plays out like a Golden Era hustler's anthem, the delivery and presentation is what makes this one so memorable. The blend of Pawz's lyrical potency, coupled with the boom-bap production savvy of LA's Default and Breeze, prove to be a notable combination that's worthy of your attention. From the piano frantic "Officer Down" to the A Tribe Called Quest sampled "The Luv [Remix]" featuring Masta Ace and Ariano, Face the Facts showcases a West Coast vibe, balanced with that East Coast grit. Beats aside, the lyrics of 'coming up and taking over' are central to the album's theme, as Pawz creates a Scarface'esque story of success. Face the Facts includes more guest features from Ras Kass, Termanology, Rakaa Iriscience, 2Mex and Self Provoked and is now available via Below System.

Flatbush, Brooklyn representative Archie Bang is pleased to unveil his debut album, Never Say Die Vol. 1 (80′s Babies Edition). With an interesting history, which includes interning at Rawkus Records while in high school, Archie would eventually sign to J Records. After honing his skills with the Little Rock based group, Dirty Water, Archie would eventually redirect his focus towards establishing a solo career, and has since collaborated on songs and mixtapes with the likes of Nipsey Hussle and DJ Whoo Kid. With the release of Never Say Die, Archie sonically takes us through a time warp back to Hip-Hop's Golden Age, using soundbites taken from classic 80′s movies such as The Goonies, Rocky IV, as well as popular public service announcements of that era. With production handled largely by 12Keyz and Jean Kengz, Never Say Die showcases Archie's skillful lyricism over an array of neck snapping and smoothed out instrumentals. Although light on features Archie pulls borough-mate Troy Ave into the fold for the remix of "Hey Luv." Never Say Die is now available for through all major digital retailers (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify).

South East Hip Hop Magazine: How are you doing Robinlynne?
Robinlynne: Doing good, jumping in the chat room as usual!
South East Hip Hop Magazine: How long have you been hosting Vibes Live Radio?Robinlynne: About 4 years now. MC Frozen1 in London created the station and he needed some help running it, He let me "help" even tho I didn't know a thing about radio, broadcasting, encoding, trans-coding....still don't, we were on the air for a while with different casters logging in from England, Scotland, Seattle, and Israel. We have been on a few different platforms on on hiatus a time or two while I was learning how to get a server. I learned that 2 years ago, and got the signal up , I didn't expect that I was going to get online so fast, so here I am with a signal, no playlist nothing cued. ha ha ha. So that was the first "live show" we did...hahaha was great, I could go on...
South East Hip Hop Magazine: What inspired you to want to get into broadcasting?Robinlynne: I have always had a love of electronics and gadgets, and my stint in the Air Force sealed my fate. I love the mechanics of it really, behind the scene, I actually am a producer, I have like 20 shows going right now on my Spreaker network, of which we are celebrating our 100,000 listener status, yay!! As a producer sometimes I had to show how it's done, for those of you who know, I had to block it our for em.. I actually have been supporting others in their broadcasts, and somehow I got on! lol I ate somebodies Wheaties!!!
South East Hip Hop Magazine: What were you doing before Vibes Live?Robinlynne: I was studying and working towards becoming a Minister, and I was already on the net helping people with tech stuff with their computers, and I would also teach em how to run the studios and phone lines for their talk shows. Nothing much really, I am a Veteran with post traumatic stress syndrome and I spend most of my time just trying to be alright. Lets talk about that another time tho, like right before my next appointment, I really hate what happened to me, I'll tell you that tho.
South East Hip Hop Magazine: Could you tell us a little about the other programs you produce or work on as

Daes & Times is the official debut album from the Boston bred rapper One Dae. After diving head first into New York's battle scene of the late '90s, Dae made an instant splash after squaring off with Mos Def, landing him a write-up in The Source Magazine, titled "The Death of Battle Rap." Since then, the fiery emcee has made Brooklyn his home and has toured the world over, making music under his terms, without compromise.
After releasing several mixtapes, singles and videos, Dae is pleased to release his long awaited debut through his newly formed Daelight imprint, via Coalmine Records. The album enlists an impressive roster of guest features that include Evidence (of Dilated Peoples), Sean Price, C-Rayz Walz and Statik Selektah, and boasts production from boom-bap specialist Marco Polo, Australia's M-Phazes, and the legendary Domingo (KRS-One, Fat Joe, Big Pun, Kool G Rap), among others. Purchase your copy of Daes & Times today through iTunes, and on CD through both Fat Beats and UGHH.com.
