I've been Writing and Producing for over half of my life. There have been times where even I have considered myself to be 'too different'. I grew up as an outcast. I never did fit into any groups or clicks; from a child all the way to Adulthood. The uniqueness has a tendency to play out through the music. It's not so much that I try to be different; I was chosen to be this way. My real frustration with the Rap Genre is the fact that it all sounds the same. Everybody's following everybody else. There's almost no passion or life left, because the essence of the art is often sacrificed for riches and fame. I've been rejected for being a different Artist; from the Streets to the Church. So much so, that I decided years ago to walk away from the Art, rather than compromise my uniqueness and my passion for the Art itself. Well, it seems I've been called back. I can't fight it anymore. There are some things that need to be addressed, and I've been called to take a stand. So here we go. Who's my target audience? You. This album will speak to generations; from the youth who desperately need a more positive image to look up to, to the older individuals who've never even listened to or respected rap before. My endeavor is to change the minds and lives of those who listen. 
Closure {klow-zhur} is something we all need before we can really move forward in life. Everyone has to deal with getting closure on some level. On this album, you will hear me dealing with specific issues I've had to face in the last 5 years, as well as some of the situations I've witnessed others face. You will hear rejection, bitterness, frustration, inspiration, and encouragement all in the same project. This is not your ordinary Rap album, and is therefore not for the ordinary listener. This is Life Music.

Tueazee - I Know #Flyah Review

Tueazee is an exciting music group based in Augusta, GA, and they have been making music for about a year now.  Releasing music under the J Tizzle Muzic label, the group recently unveiled a new, exciting single titled “I Know.”The song is a great example of Tueazee’s pure and uncompromising combination of new and old-school hip-hop, making for a driven, direct and fast-paced feel that knows no compromises whatsoever. Their flow echoes the work of seminal performers such as Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Common or J Cole, bridging the gaps between the unmistakable tone of the 90s golden age and the modern feel.Ultimately, “I Know” stands out as a perfect combination of old-school hip-hop and modern punch, making for a striking, professional and world-class production value.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
