Music Review “Big Dreams”- Rice By Yami Cabrera


Music Review “Big Dreams”- Rice 
By Yami Cabrera
[English]
The multi-faceted artist Jerard Rice aka Rice is promoting his latest production “Big Dreams”. Rice is a rapper and music entrepreneur, co-founder and collaborator of the Hustle Work Grind Records label with his brother M-Ezy, who has decided to release his first two songs in 2020.
“Big dreams” has a catchy and attractive groove, a mix of aclassic Hip Hop sound with a very peculiar modern air. The lyrics are direct and revealing; close to the social context that characterizes North American urban music.
The song also has an audiovisual accompaniment with the collaboration of other artists from the urban music scene such as IDK, Cheese, The Royal Highness, and J-Muzique. The videographic sample is very illustrative and perfectly portrays the content of the song. The video reflects clear actions linked to illegal sales, drugs, as well as injustices against African American youth.
In addition, Rice is currently involved in activist struggles against racism and injustice in the United States, especially through the #blacklivesmatter movement. His art is his best weapon in this fight. Rice recognizes that music is the best ally to connect with other people and therefore it has to have a special purpose and meaning.
"Big Dreams" along with Rice´s first single "Bet On it" could be part of their future EP Riding No BlindfoldsThe rapper is also preparing another song dedicated to the life of Tupac Shakur and based on the movie Juice.
Rice appears to be on the right track for a successful career. Let's hope that the next releases have much more to say about this rapper and producer.

Además, Rice está actualmente compenetrado con luchas activistas contra el racismo y las injusticias en Estados Unidos, especialmente a través del movimiento #blacklivesmatter. Su arte es su mejor arma en esta lucha. Rice reconoce que la música es la mejor aliada para conectar con otras persona y por eso tiene que tener un objetivo y un significado especial.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

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. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? 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
