The album consist of nine tracks, which includes appearances by Rick Ross, Musiq Soulchild, Rich The Kid, O.T. Genasis, and City Girls.
The first track on the album is “Pray For Me” featuring Rick Ross and Musiq Soulchild. The song brings a different vibe into the album and may have many wonder what’s next. The third track featuring Rich The Kid is one of our favorites titled “Catch My Wave”. “Jet Fuel” is also has a dope track to rock too.
Overall, the Legendary female artist knows how to bounce back. Especially after her hiatus in the hip hop world. It’s very exciting and mind blowing how she process several Vibes for her fans to enjoy. As this becomes the first installment of “9”, we will update you with the second part.
This Libra season has been blessed with new music from female artist Solé , September 28th. You may know her from her hardcore hip hop music from the 90’s. She appeared on J.T. Money’s single “Who Dat” in 1999. As she progressed, she decided to go a greater route in her life which is much respected. She decides not be apart of the womanizing and programming promotion that the urban industry promotes. The well respected artist is giving women and fans across the world a demanding yet moving project called “Encoded”.
The Queen is celebrating her 20th anniversary of her first album “Skin Deep”. “Encoded” shares messages of being a queen, self consciousness, great energy, and love. Her production on this isn’t a cool breeze. Meaning it has a hard touch to it. Something we do not hear from female rap artists today. Her bars has a lesson to be learned at the same time. Her voice is demanding all ears to listen to her words which has always been her uniqueness.
“Encoded” has an ultimate vibe for anyone who needs to be lifted with real music. Solé is blessing all the melanin queens, especially alpha women. The album has 12 tracks with features from Herb Alkhemyst, her husband Professor Griff, Shurhea Upendo, DJ Nabs, Sam Salter and Shae Jones. Every feature created a beautiful story line throughout the album.
The album created an entire mood needed in this time our life. Our generation need this the most. That is why we had to bring awareness to Solé new project. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Add it to your playlist, send it to your sister or lover. Support true Queens!

Ricky Rozay had his fans patiently waiting for his debut album “ Port Of Miami”. This become the next book with many chapters from the first “Port Of Miami” released thirteen years ago. The album features Nipsey Hussle, Jeezy, Drake, Wale, Dej Loaf, Meek Mills, Lil Wayne, and more.
We all know the King Of Carol City creates the dopest music for every boss. The real question is “Will Rick Ross give the streets what they been missing?” We need to know he is going to keep it a buck and a 1000 with his day one fans and supporters.
After nine albums and a bag full of hits, Ricky Rozay do not have to prove he makes beautiful music. As time pass, the music should be timeless. Let’s see if he keeps up with that and give us what we been missing.
He open up with his current single “Act A Fool” featuring his artist Wale. With production by Beat Billionaire, that raunchy, raw, vibe came soaring. Now going into the album, we expect that momentum throughout the Listening.
Our next pick is “Nobody’s Favorite” featuring Gunplay. This has that street motivation touch to it. Gunplay killed the song and delivered highly. He becomes one of the best features on the project.
“Bogus Charms” became a norm once hearing it. With the duo collaborations of Meek and Rozay, they always tell a story. It’s a beautiful song, true, and heartfelt. Plus Rick loves to make classics. But this collab should have been gutter and trill with upmost disrespect. At least another track for the streets.
You will feel his song “Born To Kill” featuring Jeezy. This track was authentic as Jeezy came with his presence. “I Still Pray” is also a heartfelt song. Lucci and Ball Greezy definitely went hard on this track. The melodies has a chilling effect where you can reminisce.
Listen how he comes on “Running The Streets” with A Boogie with The Hoodie, and Denzel Curry. This collaboration was giving much life to the tape. The production to the flow of both artists was good quality. You can feel A Boogie the most.
Vegas Residency became the ultimate vibe of what we know of “Port Of Miami”. The track was produced by The Justice League. Of course it’s a hard song if they touched it!
Maybach Music VI was a surprise featuring John Legend and Lil Wayne. That’s it? Many will anticipate more from this. The vibes were there but not what we are used to from the Boss himself.
Again, Rick Ross do not have to prove himself to anyone with his huge list of hits. This album shows his progression as an artists, a black man, just a human being. He is transitioning life as success becomes ten fold. But we need non stop rawness. Rick Ross delivered, not just for what we really and truly need. His sound is for feel good vibes. For the dope dealers to get motivated from. Many songs had same parts of production we know from latest projects which is fine. But what truly inspires Rick Ross?
Rick always will have a great catalog of work. From Port Of Miami, Teflon Don, and Lord Forgives, I Don’t. There were some albums that didn’t grasp the attention such as Mastermind or Black Market (Not the mixtape because it was better than everything we talking about right now.) We appreciate Rick Ross line of work. Hopefully he can give us some mixtapes. It may fill that hole in our fan’s hearts. Listen to the album and give us your thoughts.

Pee Supreme chats with us about the production which includes Producers DJ Chose and Avo. Both producers created a different feel to her artistry. The teamwork bought everything to life. Her presence on “Ready” was strong and yet sweet with her way to switch up the tones in each track. She has one feature from Seb Hollywood on “Different Lanes”.
Pee Supreme talks about her inspiration behind her campaign “I Am The Bag”. She explains that its not only about money but self confidence you bring about yourself. “Getting The Bag within You”. She signifies women’s empowerment and should be supported by every queen across the globe!

If you are in Houston as an upcoming artist within hip-hop, well you should have heard about ARedd’s Showcase he’s been having lately. We were invited to The “We Workin” Showcase, Sunday May 26th. It was held at The Engine Room for Memorial Weekend. This becomes his second show which grew substantially. With DJ Calo on the 1s and 2s, he joined forces with DJ Nick The Quick on stage.
We caught up with one of Houston’s best Music Engineers at his show where he displays a great deal of artists. He allowed them to have the chance to perform with fans and others to connect. They were also able to network with each other and vibe off all the dope music played.
What is cool is that Aredd has a recording studio on the southwest side of Houston, TX. We are sure he had thoughts on how can he implement all of the talents he work with, giving them a chance on a stage. With his “We Working” Showcase, it gives you a moment to see who’s really putting in work with their music!
Artists had the chance to open up for Lil Splurge (@ssglilsplurge). Even though his set was shortened, the audience was stoked to have him hype them up. There were special guests artists such as EnzoMcFly, $tiffbarbie, Suave Louis, and Lil Brent. All artists came with their own vibes. Dedoe also came and invited the crowd on stage featuring Lil Jairmy. This became one of the highlights of the show as well. What a way to get crowd anticipation!
After watching each set, there were a good amount of artists who took over the stage. Then, there were a few artists that need more practice on taking over the stage. Overall, the experience was what mattered the most. That’s why we were eager to assist with allowing artists to know what’s real the deal.
Here is a few artists that we checked out as they performed and rocked out:
After attending many showcases in Houston in particular, you always get artists perform, with no feedback or ways to enhance their craft. No follow ups, no announcement of who’s in the venue, media, press, videographers, photographers, etc. No actual networking field artists can grow accustomed to. So, some artists do not know how to approach others, especially if they really do not know. Just do your best and move around the room. Be sure to communicate with all around you. Keep positive energy and release it throughout the room by good feedback, a follow on social media, or ask questions! It’s that easy! Don’t leave a venue without connecting with at least five others. In due time it will help you.
We encourage aspiring artists to research and find ways to grasps your fans and audience. Put in more groundworks. Receive constructive criticism for its best. Be thankful and grateful during these memories and moments. Most important enjoy yourself! We hope to see Who’s Workin at the next show!
We caught up with an aspiring rap artist from Houston named LaVander. After listening to his music, we anticipate hearing what he has coming up in the future. As an upcoming artist, things become challenging when you are channeling your craft. LaVander has a sense of flow within his music. His concept with his lyrics are heard, yet something is missing. LaVander is a hip hop artist that’s taking his music one step at a time.
Although the artist can bring the concept of his tracks to life, he needs to become more enthused in this music. Practicing your flow and how the fans will interpret your voice is very important! LaVander has this unique presence on the mic and we look forward to hearing more from him.
Have you ever needed a ride and called on Lyft? Many has used the app to get a quick ride to work or to their favorite artist’s concert. What Lyft is missing is a song that represents their passengers’ experiences and where they are going as they ride!
New Orleans artist Lucky Lou drops a dope track called “Lyft” inspired by our favorite rideshare. The production of the song is live and has a sound everyone can dance to. He has dope lyrics and flow that matches the track.
“I need a Lyft, I need a ride” is what you hear in the chorus. Many can relate to Lucky Lou in his latest track. This song has a good feeling to it where all ages will want to sing this song, jumping into their Lyft ride for the day!
Be sure to check out his music. Also we will look forward to his track becoming the Lyft Anthem soon!
If you never experienced The Vockfest4 from New Orleans Bounce Legend, Vockah Redu, then you have to see what we seen this year in Houston. Vockah Redu Presents his spectacular festival where he conjoined artists, each with an unique voice. Vockah explains how these are artists who he personally enjoys. He wanted the world to experience the same as he did. Vockah Redu has been an underdog in New Orleans Bounce and its originality. He shared his talents across the world. He allowed fans to encounter the real Bounce. His performance is electrifying, making everyone shake. He includes his dope dancers with his futuristic sense in style. You will get a funky feel with that B.E.A.T bursting through the speakers in the venues.
With sounds by Jay Dawg, one of the coldest producers from the city. He kept the crowd on Go every time he was in the mix. Jay Dawg has worked some of the best in the music game in New Orleans. We all know his tracks when we hear his name on them. We advise you do not sleep on this man machine on the beats. He works his way into becoming already legendary, be sure to keep up with him!
Each talent was unique in their own sound. They all had a different style that kept you wanting more.
Eclipse The Earth Star
The Vockfest4 had a great show including American Idol’s Vincent Powell. The crowd reactions from his performance was in amaze. The audience described his performance as “breathtaking”, “strong”, “beautiful”, and “special”.
What way to go out with a bang by having Sissy Nobby give his fans the best of him. With his energy and ability to make the world shake, Nobby was definitely the highlight of the night. His opening for Vockah Redu was so legendary, most would not understand. The significance of New Orleans Bounce was created by both Redu and Nobby. It showed at an all time high at the incredible Vockfest4.
Overall, The Vockfest4 gave us an experience we suggest everyone should want to encounter. “Vockah Redu and The Cru” shared to the crowd a booty shaking, might get you naked shakedown this night. We commend his dancers for teaching a thing or two about how you really, really shake.
