The songwriter and producer of hip hop known as Bobbie has released his latest official album, “Rich Righteous Teacher.” The album contains 10 original Bobbie tracks for an approximate total listening time of 35 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Clever, aggressive, and with a metric ton of things to say about society at large, “Rich Righteous Teacher” showcases Bobbie as one of the most intriguing hip-hop artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

In addition to the considerable skills of Bobbie (often stylized ‘Bobbie.’) “Rich Righteous Teacher” also features the talents of a grip of prominent performers, including: YZ, Wise Intelligent, KP, Al-One, and up-and-coming Jersey spitter Big Ooh. Beats on the record come from such creative minds as Dope Boyz Muzic, DG Beats, and Epik the Dawn.

Having been quietly released on his personal SoundCloud page, the “Rich Righteous Teacher” title track amassed thousands of listens in less than its first month. The track features the front man of Poor Righteous Teachers, Wise Intelligent, as well as another incredible veteran Jersey emcee, YZ.

Houston’s Bobbie (who originally hails from New Jersey) cites as main artistic influences Nas, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, KRS-One, YZ, Poor Righteous Teachers, Ultramagnetic, and A Tribe Called Quest. Bobbie’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on poetry, style, and rock-solid minimalistic beats, “Rich Righteous Teacher” by Bobbie has a little something for every true fan of the sound.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Rich Righteous Teacher,” Bobbie writes, “Two clear messages I wanted to get across with this album are live your life to the absolute fullest and let no one stand in the way of you making your dreams come to fruition. I’ve lost a lot of good people over the past few year, great talented artists, so it’s my mission to live for them and no matter what problems I face keep my eyes on the prize. I won’t stop until I accomplish my goals.”

Bobbie has been rapping since the late ’80s when he was known in the New Jersey scene as B-Fine/BeFyne. His crew, the Funk Family, signed to Interscope under the Poetic Groove label in 1992 and dropped a classic single, “Anyway,” produced by the Baka Boyz. Two years later, he signed to Rick Rubin’s American Recordings with the Blaque Spurm collective and recorded “Dayz & Dayz” and “Nonoxynol Rhyme’n” produced by the late Tony D.

Later years saw Bobbie leaving American for Ruff House Records under which umbrella he produced several East Coast emcees besides working with his late brother, Borne “#9” Humbert, in a project called Sworn Secrecy. He later produced music for a variety of media giants including Fox Sports, TNT, and the Cartoon Network. His debut solo LP appeared in the early 2000s. By 2010 he had recorded an album with legendary Portland rapper KP as the duo, Good Biz.

After a hiatus, Bobbie has returned with “Rich Righteous Teacher,” the title of which is an homage to one of his favorite rap groups, Poor Righteous Teachers.

Carat releases new LP album ‘Eternity’

The hip-hop performer known as Carat has released his latest official full-length album, “Eternity.” The LP album contains 13 original Carat tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Packed with gritty, aggressive urban poetry, “Eternity” showcases Carat as one of the most uniquely memorable hip-hop artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Las Vegas’s Carat cites as main artistic influences J. Cole, Joey Bada$$, Boogie, Nas, and Tupac Shakur. Notably, the rapper also cites himself, Carat, among his influences, a sign of the individualistic streak which runs throughout his new LP.

Carat’s own sound takes elements from each of these and proves without doubt that the LV rap underground has a character all its own. This is ironic because the rapper himself calls his local scene “washed up” in Track 6. Listeners of “Eternity” will beg to differ, no doubt, with Carat’s performance on the record standing as evidence to the contrary.

With an emphasis on autobiography, direct and deliberate songwriting, and line after line of lyrical gymnastics, “Eternity” by Carat has a little something for every hip-hop fan both at home and abroad.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Eternity,” Carat writes, “That I’m a chaotic, creative, loving person who wants nothing more but the world to come to its senses.”

This colorful creativity, unpredictability, and legitimate compassion for people at large can be heard in both Carat’s word choice and delivery. Having heard the record, listeners can tell it’s not egotism, but rather a true appreciation for the art of rhythm and rhyme when Carat says:

There is so much emotion in this album it’s indescribable. It’s an angry, inspiring, frustrating album. Yet so beautifully pieced.”

Carat has been headlining shows since 2016. His debut official music video, “Clout,” received fan and critical acclaim in 2017, solidifying his place at the top of the LV underground scene. His second video appeared in May 2018, one single from “Eternity,” “F-ck That” (link provided below). This was followed by “Deceit,” “True Colors” and “Time Out,” each of which added to his growing fan base. When he surprised his fans on Instagram 3 February 2019 with the release of “Eternity,” the record hit approximately a thousand Spotify listens within 24 hours.

Carat still lives in the hood.

“On my momma,” he writes.

Eternity” by Carat is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, hip hop fans. Very early.

Eclectic, shadowy and taking a new direction for this up-and-coming performer, “Yung Wet Dreams” showcases Charlie BlackheArt as one of the most intriguing crossover artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Charlie BlackheArt writes, “I actually love all types of music. My major influences are hip hop, pop punk/alt bands, psychedelic rock, and my favorite ’90s R&B. Shouts out to ‘112’ Peaches and Creme was my favorite song growing up, no cap.”

If I were to describe my music,” writes BlackheArt, “I would say it holds close to who I am as a person – it’s all over the place. I draw inspiration from artists of all genres, even things like movies, TV, the traveling I did as a kid, and of course my personal experiences.”

Yung Wet Dreams” comes on the heels of Charlie BlackheArt’s December 2018 EP album release, “F**cked Feels.” The popular record continues to gather steam behind BlackheArt as he keeps up momentum with this new single drop and promises of more to come.

Describing the overall meaning of “Yung Wet Dreams,” Charlie BlackheArt says, “I would say life goes on – heartbreak, loneliness, and disappointment are all temporary. Never give up. Your glow up might come at your lowest point.”

In the end, Charlie BlackheArt’s new single is as much about himself as it is about the music.

I’ve always loved to create,” he says of this. “Ever since I was young, I would write stories, draw comics, and explore my imagination to the fullest. All of this, plus my scatterbrain personality, I think makes me into the type of artist I am, someone my fans are going to see grow and change drastically with each record I put out.”

Hip hop artist Yayo releases new single ‘Live It Up’


The hip-hop artist from Houston, TX known internationally as Yayo has released his latest single, “Live It Up.” Like the rest of his repertoire, the single has been proudly published as an independent release on the MadMan Entertainment, LLC record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Upbeat, brightly toned, and full of rhythm and groove, “Live It Up” is the latest evidence that Yayo is a name to watch for music fans and DJs alike in 2017 and beyond.

Yayo sites as main artistic influences Kanye West, Jay Z, Rihanna, and Young Jeezy. These tastes appear in his own music several ways, including his penchant for writing infectious hooks, the use of analog and digital instrumentation, and writing lines and rhymes that are as fun as they are easy to sing along with.

Asked to talk about the themes of his new single, Yayo writes, “My single is about enjoying life. Live It Up means being grateful everyday for the time we get to spend with our family and friends. Live it up! You could die any minute. Everyday you gonna see me living to the fullest.”

Yayo attended Curtis High school in Staten Island, NY and graduated from Kashmere High School in Houston, TX. He played basketball at the University of New Orleans, and a year later, transferred to Yuba College in Yuba City, CA, where he continued his passion and love for basketball. While attending Yuba he suffered a knee injury, and his search for self-expression led him down a new path: music.

After leaving Yuba college, Yayo enrolled at San Jose City College to finish up school, but soon made a life-changing decision to pursue his passion for music. Yayo made a personal commitment to remain in San Jose and enjoy the California lifestyle of beaches and mountains – his source of inspiration and motivation to complete his debut mixtape: “No Sleep + Hustle.”

Roland Parker releases new album ‘Gonna Make It’

The singer and songwriter known as Roland Parker has released his latest LP record, “Gonna Make It.” The album contains 11 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It features the popular Parker single, “Better Not Quit.” Both have been proudly published on the Roland Parker Records independent music label outside the creative control of the corporate music industry. Funky, groovy, full of bass, rhythm ‘n’ blues, “Gonna Make It” by Roland Parker is a soul album for the new millennium.

Chapel Hill, NC’s Roland Parker cites as main artistic influences Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Ernie Isley (the Isley Brothers) and Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush). As a result, his guitar style is steeped in the funk-infused classic rock style of the late ’60s and ’70s, particularly with regard to Hendrix and Marino, whose seminal guitar modes are most like the playing and songwriting of Roland Parker on his “Gonna Make It” record.

Upbeat, positive and even heartwarming at times, Parker’s “Gonna Make It” is a friendly, welcoming collection of soul songs with a good sense of humor and more than its fair share of groove. Sporting songs with titles such as “Luva Hata,” “Put that Funk in My Face” and “Fried Chickhen and Wallamellon,” “Gonna Make It” is an album with variety in spades. This variety is indicative of Parker’s own personality and manner of songwriting and performance.

“Don’t be afraid to play what you wanna play!” exclaims Roland Parker on being asked to describe the major theme of his new LP. “These days you must be rap or rock or pop. I play from rock and jazz to country, and whatever you hear, it is from my heart.”

A self-taught professional from the old school, Roland Parker has been performing live for more than three decades. He isn’t afraid of painting with unconventional colors, either.

“I like to take chances,” he says. “If it works, fine. If not? Oh, well. I’m an artist and I love people!”

Asked to provide a copy of his current bio, Parker is quick to reply.

“Love is my bio.”

“Gonna Make It” and its single, “Better Not Quit” by Roland Parker are available now at over 700 digital music outlets online worldwide.
