The hip hop artist known as Bonez has released his latest official single “Shoot for the Sky,” feat. Eric Slater. The track has been proudly published on the Harvest Puff Productionz independent music label. Based on big bass lines, rattling rhythms and uplifting lines and rhymes, “Shoot for the Sky” is a hip hop and pop collaboration with something for every modern music fan.

Bonez and Eric Slater cite as main artistic influences for “Shoot for the Sky,” Logic, Hopsin, Chris Webby, Eminem, and Tech N9ne. Their “Shoot for the Sky” single will appeal to listeners of these titans right away, but the song has elements belonging to itself, alone. It’s a new sound for a new era.

Produced by Cory “Cnote” Yothers (Snoop Dogg, Nikki Flores, Christoper Breaux/Frank Ocean), “Shoot for the Sky” is specifically produced to fuse elements of Bonez’s and Slater’s signature music styles.

Harvest Puff Records writes of this, “The resulting song is the feel-good anthemic banger ‘Shoot for the Sky,’ alternatively titled ‘Feel Me.’ The sessions were so fun and successful that we signed Bonez to an EP production deal, together forming the recording and production company, Harvest Puff Productionz.”

South Lake Tahoe’s Bonez is a 19-year-old indie hip-hop artist. He is the writer and performer of three mixtapes, including his most recent “Chest Painz: the Mixtape.” He is also the creator/star of his popular free-verse series on FaceBook and YouTube, #WeeklyFIRE, on which he raps freeverse to beats submitted by his fans online. Bonez was a 2015 Finalist at TeamBackPack Mission Underground Los Angeles and has shared the stage with such artists as Demrick & DJ Hoppa, MAYDAY, Andre Nickatina and Cryptic Wisdom.

Bonez’s featured artist, Eric Slater, is a Los Angeles based musician, guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. He has toured globally as a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for bands and record labels, including chart-topping indie label Wizard Records. He is the winner of Best Live Performance at the Los Angeles Music Awards, a two-time winner of the KROQ Battle for Los Angeles Band Competition, and a Rock City News Awards Nominee for Best Guitarist.

Slater’s two self-produced solo albums are on his own record label and have received much critical and fan acclaim. Slater has collaborated with such music professionals as Michael Vail Blum (Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson) Cory Yothers (Snoop Dogg, Christopher Breaux) Pawel Sek (Taylor Swift, Dido, Jay Z) Len Fagan (Alien Ant Farm) Robie Porter (Air Supply, Rick Springfield) and Greg H. Sims (Anouk, the Motels).

Producer “Cnote” Yothers appeared as a child actor in movies such as Dreamscape, and Who Will Love My Children, and is brother to Tina Yothers (Family Ties) with whom he played in the popular band, Jaded. He is a much sought-after music producer with credits in most genres, specializing in hip hop and RnB. He has produced for artists including Snoop Dogg, Nikki Flores, and Christopher Breaux. Cnote is the founder of recording studio, label, artist development, and production company Harvest Product.

“Shoot for the Sky” by Bonez feat. Eric Slater is available online worldwide beginning 17 June 2016.

Cnote of Bloods and Crips fame releases solo single ‘F. U. Industry N-ggas’

Cnote, who gained international fame with her wildly controversial band, Bloods and Crips, has released her latest solo rap single, titled, “F. U. Industry N-ggas” on the Salute the West record label. The song is an enraged, yet intelligent indictment of the American corporate music industry, which has been under fire as early as the 1960s for taking advantage of musicians, censoring or blacklisting artists, and for practicing unethical marketing strategies across all genres of music.

In “F. U. Industry N-ggas,” Cnote’s voice and fists are raised against fat-cat music industry businessmen in support of all artists, as well as for the music listening public. Musically speaking, her single also raises several modern hip hop standards. “F. U. Industry N-ggas” is no thrown-together project, but rather a work of courageous and home-hitting artistic integrity.

Cnote (AKA Danny Gyrl) is a true poet of the urban underground, each of her lines and rhymes being crafted with the greatest skill and utmost honesty. Her words cut like jagged glass, her chorus pounds like 50-caliber shells from a battleship, each shot aimed directly at the top of the corporate ladder. The back beat is driving and full of groove, yet unobtrusive, the way rap used to be. Enjoining Cnote is a steady, vibrant electric guitar playing licks hotter than the surface of the sun.

Cnote’s musical history is storied and braided with music history, itself, her experience with Bloods and Crips cementing her in the chronicles of the underground rap movement. The legendary band was assembled by producer Ronnie Phillips with rappers Redrum 781 and Tweedy Bird Loc in 1993. This seminal rap band, composed of actual inner-city gang members, released two Billboard-charting albums of what would soon come to be called “gangsta” rap. Many of its members are now deceased, and Cnote’s own death was rumored.

This forms part of the impetus for her founding an independent record label, Salute the West. The rest of the inspiration comes from a genuine, inborn desire to hit the Man back, and to hit him hard. Reprinted here in its entirety is the declaration of war in Cnote’s own words:

“The single was written for artists who have had their dreams stolen by someone in the entertainment business, for anyone used, mistreated, blackballed, walked on, or sexually harassed by anyone in the music business. I wanted to give them a voice through this song. I’ve heard a lot of bad stories about stolen dreams, and I may not be able to help those [victims] fulfill them, but I can give them a voice through my songs.”

And as for the music, itself? “As for the album, it will be a street album,” she writes.

Indeed, it will – and it will bang on wax, as the famous Bloods and Crips song goes.

The single “F. U. Industry N-ggas” is available online worldwide beginning late March, 2013.

Cnote’s performances in Bloods and Crips official music videos are also available for viewing online. Her YouTube channel is available at MissCnoteDannygyrl (see especially, “Steady Dippin”).
