Mural of Sean Price - Tarnished

Image result for mural of sean price

Next month will make it four years since Hip-Hop artist Sean Price passed away. The member of Heltah Skeltah, Boot Camp Clik, and Random Axe was in top creative form. Although accolades came to Price during the 1990s alongside Rockness Monsta, the Brownsville, Brooklyn native had catapulted himself to elite status through solo releases like Monkey Barz and Mic Tyson. Since passing away in his sleep on August 8, 2015, the husband and father has become a beloved figure throughout the Hip-Hop community. 
Shortly after Sean’s passing, renowned artist and muralist MeresOne painted a tribute mural in Brooklyn. Like murals of Big L, Big Pun, and Biggie Smalls, the piece of art has become a Hip-Hop landmark, in the same streets in which Price made his home throughout his 43 years of life.  
Located at Kingston Avenue and Bergen Street in Crown Heights, that mural’s future is now in jeopardy. Sean’s wife (and sometimes musical collaborator), Bernadette Price, has informed fans that the building attached to the mural has been sold. The new owner allegedly has begun efforts to cover up a visual used in music videos by a host of Rap peers. 
“The new [owners] were caught about to paint over his face stating they were ordered to do so. However, I’m doing all that I can, for now, to not let this happen. However August 8 is around the corner, and I’m hoping they don’t violate his mural before then,” Bernadette writes. Ms. Price adds that if the mural is covered up, she is planning with MeresOne to paint another tribute. His label, Duck Down Music, Michael Rapaport, and host of Sean’s friends and peers have expressed their support.
Ambrosia For Heads has created a petition that Sean Price family, friends, and fans can sign to show the powers that be that is more than just a painting on a building.

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
