Summer is now approaching an end and the children are getting prepared for this school year. What makes this so unique was to see the community gather such a delightful school drive to prepare children and parents. This may have been a hot sunny day but it did not stop everyone from working together to create an impactful event.
Councilman Jerry Davis, Bread of Life, Impacting Houston, and East Houston Civic Club joined forces to have the back to school supply giveaway at A.G. Hilliard Elementary in North East Houston. Stepping unto the schools’ grounds, you could not help to view many children enjoying the fun, food and games at hand. They were given school supplies, hair cuts and hair do’s, and also everyday necessities for families. Councilman Jerry Davis gives tickets to WWE match and there were also cash raffles with East Houston Civic Club. From bounce machines to the break dancing challenges, the children got a chance to end summer with a bang!
We had the chance to speak with several community organizations and businesses as the provide information of their products and services:
Fredy Gomez with Harris County Texas, Shambriah Busby with Healing Hearts, and Desiree Barnes with United Health Care. Drive HISD was also in attendance, sharing their mission with school transportation.
With invites, we got the chance to see Miss Cynthia Bailey who is currently running for District B work hard with Impacting Houston Inc. Cynthia’s work ethnics and experiences in the community gives a huge impact to the neighborhoods. She strives to create a better quality of life for all residents in District B. As the backpacks and supplies were given to families, one of the main occurrences was to watch the teamwork from everyone.
There were over 1000 backpacks given to the children this weekend. This shined the facility even more with smiles from kids preparing to get back to school. We would like to thank Jerry Davis, Principal Erika Kimble with A.G. Hilliard Elementary, Bread of Life, Impacting Houston, and The East Houston Civic Club for sharing moments given to the future of the next generations.
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.
Episode 4: Exclusive with Houston’s female Rap artist Pee Supreme. She talks about her latest EP “Ready” and her experience while creating music.
Pee Supreme’s“Ready” is a definite vibe for everyone to enjoy. As she prepares the world to get “Ready”, she explains key points of her style, flow, and experience creating her new project. Pee Supreme has joined forces with Southern Heat Entertainment and The Supreme Life Music creating great quality music for the world to hear.
She also shares her motives behind the 7 track EP. She states “the seven flames” which you hear throughout the tape. Straight fire! Pee Supreme is not your average female rapper. She has flow, lyrics, and the presence for every walk of life.
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!

What a major move for Houston’s Legend Rap Artist Brad “Scarface” Jordan to run as Member of Councilman for District D. As former member of “The Geto Boys” and Facemob, the Artist is taking on a new journey in his life.
Three days ago, he posted on instagram “Should I Run For Houston City Council?” He announced via social media (Saturday June 8th) that he will be running.
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 were on the scene for the upcoming video of “Throw Fits” with Juvenile, Yung Miami, G-Eazy, and Super Producer London On Tha Track. The block party scene was located on Frenchmen Street, at the Blue Nile. Many people gathered together to be apart of a culture filled scene in the middle of the street.
We were invited by Freewater, who came together and gathered many people to come out and dance, party, and be apart of dope scene of the video shoot. They also gave a crawfish boil for the everyone came out. We caught London On Tha Track and Juvenile enjoying crawfish.
Everyone was enjoying themselves, especially G-Eazy, as he amps the crowd and embrace the fans and people gathering in their presence. London On Tha Track gathered the people and upcoming local artists from the city for shoots in the video and also embraced them with photos and gracing his presence as well.
The atmosphere was full of beautiful vibes as well as beautiful people coming together. Even though the sun was vibrant, nothing amounted to the huge smiles of the people enjoying themselves. One thing we noticed was the video had an abundant feel of the culture. There was a second line band, ladies twerking, vibrant colors in everyone’s attire, and much more.
We are confident that the video will capture the New Orleans culture. As natives, it was refreshing to be apart what should be a hit single! The video will add more insight of our culture. With the city always being an influence in the hip hop scene, “Throw Fits” will stamp where it all began! Our music, food, and amazing people has any tourist visiting leaving with high vibrations and happiness.
Be on the look out for the video! We will keep you In The Nyte Lyfe even in The Daytime!
Catch a vibe as you listen to Mastermind BL’s “Whole Time” Artists Ya Minko and Lysian drops their latest music video early this March. Both artists grew up in Gabon, Africa. With video production by OG Visions, you will catch the Houston vibes throughout the video. You will see the landscape in the Nyte Lyfe viewing the skylines of downtown Houston.
These guys captures an unique look of themselves, giving their fans more of their craft. Their lyrics were average, the production helped offset its performance. Th artists should focus on more clarity of their voice.
The video production was pretty cool. The video should have had more scenes or various visuals to attract the viewer’s eye. Maybe the scenes were limited.
Overall, the video is cool. The storyline of the actual song should be depicted more. We look forward to see what else these guys have in store.
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.
