TY DOLLA SIGN, QUAVO AND GUCCI MANE PARTY AT THE BEACH IN "PINEAPPLE" VIDEO



Ty Dolla $ign drops his latest music video just in time for the summer. On June 20, the west coast crooner shared the visuals for his Quavo and Gucci Mane-assisted "Pineapple."

Directed by David Camarena, the colorful video kicks off with Guwop spitting his pineapple-related bars while a person in an actual pineapple costume hits the shoot dance down the beach. Later in the video, Ty Dolla and Quavo take to the streets in a sports car to hit a few donuts.

"Pineapple" is featured on the recently re-released Beach House 3 deluxe edition. The album includes six new songs and features guest appearances from Future, Lil Wayne, Swae Lee, The-Dream, Tory Lanez, Madeintyo, 24hrs, Wiz Khalifa, Pharrell and more.

Up next for Ty Dolla $ign, the rapper will be teaming up with Jeremih for their joint album, MihTy. While a release date for the project has yet to be revealed, the artists recently shared the project's first single, "The Light."

Ty Dolla previously hinted at the album dropping in June and claimed the duo recorded around 60 songs for the project but narrowed it down to a smaller number for the tracklist. "I promise you we did [at tops] eight sessions," he said. "Maybe less than that. We got 60 songs and we had to choose 13-14."

Check out the "Pineapple" video below.

HAVOC SHARES TWO UNRELEASED PRODIGY VERSES

   

HAVOC SHARES TWO UNRELEASED PRODIGY VERSES



 

Wednesday (June 20) marked the one year anniversary of Prodigy's passing due to complications from sickle cell anemia, and to commemorate the late legend, his Mobb Deep partner Havoc shared two unreleased freestyles from the official Queensbridge murderer.

"We lost my partner one year from today," Hav wrote in a since-deleted tweet. "It's Mobb Deep for life. Enjoy these unreleased freestyles."

"Stay Chiseled" finds Prodigy spitting Havoc's 2006 verse on "The Infamous" over Large Professor's beat for the producer's 2002 Nas collaboration, "Stay Chisel." Divorced from The Alchemist's original funk and transposed over Large Pro's nostalgic strings, the verse in P's hands feels less like a threat and more like self-reflection.

Prodigy raps, "We got the most gangsta shit, the second most biggest projects/We sold the most crack since '86/Don't handle a lot of bricks but we the most thug/You think you're dirty over there, but we more dirtier." Also, for the historians, it's worth mentioning that where Hav shouted out P for having the most loud, Prodigy here shouts out Nitty, presumably Ty Nitty from fellow Queensbridge crew Infamous Mobb.

The other unreleased track is a Mobb Deep joint from the archives, "Thief's Theme," on which both members go in over Salaam Remi's beat for Nas's 2004 Street Disciple single of the same name. Prodigy opens his verse with a joke about violence set to the music of a then-young Kanye West.

"I will tap dance off with so much force/Your new theme music will be that new Kanye song/Rap niggas want it with us and know they dead wrong/That's why we last so long and they dead and gone," he spits.

Earlier this week, Lin-Manuel Miranda also shared an unreleased Mobb song, "Boom Goes The Cannon," a George Washington tribute presumably recorded for The Hamilton Mixtape.

You can listen to Prodigy's "Stay Chiseled" and Mobb Deep's "Thief's Theme," via Hot 97's DJ Absolut's SoundCloud, below.

U-NIK STYLEZ RELEASES 3RD INSTALLMENT OF "CLASSIC" ALBUM @UNIKSTYLEZ

Seasoned Hip Hop Artist from Reading, Pennsylvania U-nik Stylez  announces the release of his third installment of his "Classic" project. "Classic III" includes features from major Indie Artists Ren Thomas, King Magnetic, Recognize Ali, Illconscious, as well as others.   Stylez collaborated with all-inclusive production teams on top of self produced tracks to create this thorough and timeless project.

"I wanted to keep a similar vibe and work with artists and producers I've met along the way and also add a very personal track on the project.  "The record "Due Time" gives an explanation to fans on my 2-year hiatus from releasing new music." 

"Classic III" is a reflection of Stylez growth and progression as an artist and was inspired from the major success of the first two installments.

"This time around I even added a little humor... a comedy skit mocking "Mumble Rap." 

At 27 years of age Stylez continues to claim eminent accolades as other notable artists from tours to a worldwide fan base, major media and press, and ranking as a chart topper by both domestic and international DJ's.

@PayneDaSquadBoy: The Grind from 215 to 419 by DJ Layne Luv

Whoever would have thought that one day, in America,  just because you land on national television doesn't write your ticket for success. Even then, there is still a grind process an artist must go through to stay relevant and famous. But consider this, in 2018, national tv has to compete with all shapes and forms of social & independent media. This means that as soon as the public at large is fascinated with what appears to be viral news....they're already on to the next thing. Enter a young man from Toledo, Ohio by way of Philadelphia PA that got his big break (which he really didn't know he had) on the very popular music show 106 & Park. They call him Payne Da Squad Boy!

Being in this hip hop game a while, I know that there's several things that really motivate urban rappers to be successful...getting shot or being homeless. Thank God for Payne it was the latter. In the late 2000's Payne found himself homeless. But he decided if that was going to be his fate, he'd rather be homeless in a city of opportunity than scratching his head in Ohio. So Payne packed up what he had and moved in with his comrade in New York City. Trying to do the right thing, he wanted to earn his keep by enrolling in school and getting a job. Low and behold he came across a sign to audition for Freestyle Friday's on 106 & Park. After he passed the test in New York, they sent him down to D.C., and from there they gave him his first date to air on the show.

Payne battled himself into the finals, being judged by the likes of Hip Hop Celebrities like DJ Premier, Ron Brows and straight outta the ATL rapper Bonecrusher. After handling himself superbly...he was recognized around town by the cities A-List celebrities like Alicia Keys, Beanie Sigel etc. In fact, rumor has it, Juelz Santana stopped his vehicle in the middle of the street to politick with the up and coming rapper.

The real test came when the freestyle champion started to make actual music. What happened to him happens to so many artists that gain national attention too fast. You begin to lose yourself. Business men in suits and glass desks strongly encourage the content of an artist work be commercial friendly. From there, Payne's focus began to spiral and so did his promising career.

Eventually, he found solace in his roots back in Philadelphia but he knew the love was back in Ohio...so Payne headed back to the MidWest to regroup. He says he still has his industry connections, but he wants full creative control over his art so he chooses the do a number of things independently just to have peace of mind.

He tells me "Layne, I'm grateful for it all, but if I could change one thing, I would've taken my time on making music and focused on the battle. That's where my heart's at, that's where my love is at. The Battle. But you know how it is. So many people in your ear telling you what they think you should do....I woulda mastered the same thing that's feeding me today. Battle Rapping. 

Today, Payne goes heavy on social media promoting his brand of music and he is also getting booked for rap battles nationwide. People that know him can recognize that his hunger has been restored. In 2018...he comes to Bring The Payne...literally.

Hugo who is known in New York as the next rising star, announces the release of his new hit single "8 or 9", which is off his forthcoming EP.  I had the opportunity to chop it up with the young artist about his new single, the inside scoop on his new EP, and his plan to become a chart topper!

MJ:  Before we get to what fans have been anticipating, let's take it back a bit.  As a teenager you were quite the local celebrity winning talent contests and even creating music in the studios. How did music first enter your life?  At what point did the epiphany hit that this was not just a hobby to pass time?

Hugo: It's always been a part of my life. I remember as far back as 5 years old singing along to the radio and getting positive feedback from adults saying that I sounded good. In High School I realized I could possibly do this as a career.

MJ: You have quite the unique style of singing and your voice crosses over into many genres of music.  Although that's an incredible talent, do you find it more challenging to be accepted into the world of Hip Hop and R&B?

Hugo: I think real fans of music across all genres will accept my style overall. I'm from New York City where there are so many styles, cultures, and types of music. All of that contributes and reflects my own style.

MJ: Ideally in the music scene the main goal is to become a household name, worldwide! What steps are you taking to achieve that?  Do you think that ties in at all with being receptive to artist development and guidance from past music veterans?

Hugo: My main goal is to make great music, everything else is secondary to me.

MJ: Ok let's talk music! You have a hit single titled "8 or 9" which is off your forthcoming EP. Can you share some inside scoop about the EP, without giving too much away?

Hugo: Without giving too much away, it's a sea of melody and eclecticism.

MJ: Now tell us about "8 or 9", from the idea to the evolvement, to the final product.

Hugo: "8 or 9" pays homage to the late 90's and early 2000's of R&B. Originally that was my only idea but it evolved into a feel good summer anthem.

MJ: Although still very early in your career, you have already worked with quite a few industry mixers. What major artists would you like to collaborate with or share the stage with?

Hugo: I like the guys I work with now and I would enjoy to share the stage with them.

MJ:  Take us on stage with Hugo...Give us three words to describe your stage presence.

Hugo: electrifying, hypnotizing, and Oreos! (ha-ha)

MJ:  What is it about your style and flow that separates you from other artists?

Hugo: I'm approachable, humble, and honest. Everyone can relate to my music.

MJ: As we wrap up let's give the fans a peak into your personal side.  Where would you like to tour? Who's in your personal playlist? Who inspires Hugo?

Hugo: I would like to tour globally on cruise ships as well as on airplanes... big ones like 747's! But seriously I'm open to touring all over the world one day, I haven't seen most of it yet! My personal playlist varies but a little sample would be Ryan Leslie, System of a Down, The Carpenters, and MJ's "Off the Wall" album.  As for inspiration that comes from my loved ones and their determination to succeed in a world where the odds are stacked against them.

MJ: Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

Hugo: More of my music as that's the best way I know how to express myself. It's always been like that. You wouldn't know how I was feeling if we shared a conversation, but if you hear one of my songs you'd know exactly what's going on with me.

MJ: Much continued success your way, salute!

Hugo: Thanks MJ!
