New Orleans has a secret weapon ready to explode the streets. Uptown New Orleans Rap artist Junior Montana has come to the front line to hold the torch for his city. With his straight forward demeanor and mean lyrics, he amazes anyone who listens to him. He has his latest track titled “Right Time” which is a New Orleans bounce song.
He expresses how he is going to be up next in New Orleans to make it pop on the music scene. Junior compares his come up as Lil Wayne did.
I’m The New King of South. Tell T.I. Im not asking for that. I’m taking that.
He feels that artist today just rap with no substance. He states they need to reflect off some throwback hip hop music and learn versatility and structure. Junior seems very certain about this claim of becoming The King of The South and ringing the alarms for everyone to hear.
His music is inspired by artists such as Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy. His style and flow is not distinctive in his opinion. He has am selective melodies where he tap into any genre he likes. He becomes versatile with his sound.
“I don’t write, so it becomes a quick process. I’m like 15 minutes with a verse. In like 2 hours a song is complete. I have a crazy thought process.”
Junior Montana has a video entitled “Reloaded” which he says is self explanatory for himself.
“That’s to let them know I got the flavor like the Hot Boyz”
Junior Montana shares how he hasn’t done any collaborations due to no other artists reaching out. He does state how he would not mind working a few local artists such as Da Kannable, Weed Junkie, Max P, and Jay Jones.
Junior is an artist who is a realist within his lyrics. He stress that he do not talk anything fabricated and speak to the streets. Some artists lose their their identity by rapping about what’s not true. Junior wants the world to know he is next up and expect his wave to hit hard.
The new Gucci Mane interview has surfaced the internet. With his new album dropping “Wopster2” and latest collaboration with Gucci, this interview allows fans to indulge into his life. On October 17th, Gucci Mane sit down with Charlamagne Tha God. This also becomes Gucci’s 101 project out today. What a true blessing and hard work!
Gucci speaks with Charlamagne about his marriage with Keyshia Ka’Oir. His marriage became the pivotal change of his life after prison. His wife played a key factor in his turnaround. Gucci Mane lost trust with many close to him. He trusted his wife and states how he needed her. Their marriage helped Gucci mature as a men and a husband.
Charlamagne asks him about a few artists that were signed to him. He explains how he released Young Thug and Ralo because he could not do anything more for them. He states how he introduced The Migos to Coach K and QC. He explains how everything was fair and he look at his artists as his friends. He also talks about his relationship with Kodak Black. Kodak payed homage to Gucci by getting a feature from him when he first came home. He expressed how their friendship grows and their talks about growth.
Gucci has always had an eye for artists. As long as we have known him, anyone he co-signed became a star. From Young Thug, Peewee Longway, Future, Migos, and Young Dolph, we know them from Gucci Mane. His list of producers are also platinum from Zaytoven, Honorable C Note, 808 Mafia, Dun Deal, and more.
Overall the interview was enlightening and refreshing. The fact to hear Gucci explanation his faults and understand his influence to the world was meaningful. He shares how he had to apologize several times to his friends. He has matured into a better man. Charlamagne also shows his maturity in the interview. Meaning he did a great job with Gucci, alone. It may spark some rings that Charlamagne did this interview without the rest of the Breakfast Club. Gucci has a little beef with Angela Yee. Of course he addressed their beef but we advise you to watch the interview for yourself!

New Orleans was granted a special gift after the holidays with Swisha Sweet’s massive show. Swisher Sweets presents The Artist Project where they created a show to highlight both mainstream and independent artists. The concert took place at The Orpheum Theater downtown of New Orleans. Every year, The Artist Project travels to different cities across the nation.
The NOLA Takeover gave seven emerging artists a chance to shine, opening for some of our biggest hip hop artists today. The artists consists of Snap Dogg, Kelechi, Iman, Charles Bryan, J Soulja, Don Doliver, and Rizzoo Rizzoo. These 7 artists were chosen and voted in by fans. They received the chance to open up for MGK, Desiigner, Gucci Mane, and Fetti Wap.
Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a special welcome from Swisher Sweets. The venue was filled with a great amount of fans, supporters, and special guests. The cheerful crowd anticipates all talents.
With New Orleans legendary, DJ Mannie Fresh and Comedian Rude Jude, they kept the crowd rolling. They kept us hyped and full of energy.
What we noticed was that the lineup for the show became diverse. We would normally see all opening acts perform before the headliners. Well, Swisher shuffled the stars with aspiring artists. Giving everyone a chance to be equally heard throughout the show. This made the show more exciting.
Every artist gave a good show, we received a special show from Fetti Wap. He served his fans up and down the stage. He seemed to have enjoyed the show as much as the audience did. Wap dances and sang without a doubt in his mind. We got the chance to see him live performing all of his hit songs.
Next, we seen the best performance of the show By Machine Gun Kelly. MGK show seemed to be one of the most anticipated from the crowds reaction. He bounced from one end of stage to another, even climbing on top of balcony. Touching everyone from upstairs on down, we loved that part of show.
The last performance was worth waiting for as LaFlare (Gucci Mane) comes unto the stage glowing the venue up! Atlanta’s own comes to New Orleans and sang his fans favorite songs. Gucci is no stranger to the Big Easy, you can tell he felt as f he was at home. He performed hits such as “Lemonade”, “Freaky Girl”, “Wake Up In The Sky”, “Black Beatles”, and more.
Overall, concert was a great experience. We become intimate with the artists, which joined the fans together. One thing that we did noticed was some of the crowd participation become tough for some of the opening acts. The support from the audience lingered throughout the show. Besides that, we give the show both thumbs up! We would like to thank Swisher Sweets for allowing us to attend their show. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the New Year!
Creating a platform for artists to express themselves the right way has been our main objective. Houston’s Finest Unplugged TV viewed how unity within businesses can bring a great deal of people together. Since we began this blog site, we wanted to show what matters the most in our society. We created a team featuring DJ Mizzle, Don P, Sherita, and Nyte Lyfe Lexx. Once connecting dots with Music Exchange Radio and Vision4Productions, we wanted to share our insights on some very interesting hip hop artists.
Music Exchange Radio is an innovative media network which uses the combination of 24 hour live streaming, radio, television, website, and smart phone app. They market and promote independent music of all genres, culturally influence entrepreneurs, music and business education, all in relevance to independent artist.
We teamed up with some great entities to curate the show where people can be apart of. There were interviews in place for a few artists we felt need awareness bought to their dopeness.
It was only right to bring out artists such as Bam Rogers, BG Kenny Lou, FNM $hoota, and JR The Lyrical Angel.
We spoke with Arkansas Hip-Hop Artist Bam Rogers who truly is an artist. Bam states how he has been influenced by Music all of his life. He began at the age of 12. His family has a strong presence with Gospel music. This reflects on how talented Bam is and we are excited to see his future.
We talked about his album which dropped on his birthday November 14th called “Change of Plans”. His upcoming event is held at Astroworld Festival, November 17th. Be sure to check out his new album and our album review on “Change of Plans”.
Next we had a chance to chat with BG Kenny Lou, who is an aspiring artist out of Southpark Houston. This fella has a very interesting story and we commend him for sharing it with us. Kenny has been doing major performances with several high schools during their football games and homecoming activities. With his dope music and strong presence with the kids, The students highly anticipates his show and his words of encouragements. Kenny Lou is indeed what you will call a hardcore rapper, but in his music his melodies becomes anyone’s favorite.
Well not everyone enjoyed his work at the schools. For sure it doesn’t seem pretty having the Houston police displaying the artist on the news. The Houston Police are complaining about how are the schools can allow this artist to perform. In our opinion, how could any school let any rapper perform? Kenny Lou defends himself by telling his side of the story. The media played manipulation in this matter. Kenny shares how he does positive acts for his sake and not for any publicity stunt. He even volunteered with us at The Senior Luncheon at the church and fed the homeless afterwards. We planned prior to the accusations to have artist participate in our volunteer programs.
Besides that, we got a chance to hear his major single “Damn Thang” which is doing crazy numbers at this time. We hope and pray all goes well moving forward to his success in his career.
What’s Family and Money if you don’t see FNM $hoota. Westbank New Orleans artist has migrated to Houston and become an all around guy. You may see him in Atlanta one day, next in L.A. $hoota came chat with us about his future projects and next moves. His humbleness spreads in the room everywhere he go. We went to his video shoot for “Playing Games” a week ago. This tack is on his EP titled “All Hype Shit”. $hoota touches on how being able to move around helped him connect more than ever. He is definitely an underdog in the industry. His clothing line FNM Apparel is another example of his great work ethnics and sense of style.
We consider him a true artist who stands behind his brand. It’s never a doubt you will catch this artist with his children. It is never a time you catch not on point. He is the true definition of Family and Money.
Last but far from least, Westbank New Orleans singer and rapper JR The Lyrical Angel blesses us with his presence during the show. With his strong yet angelic voice, we placed him spot to give us a taste of his sound. JR is an aspiring artist moving forward to become the next big sensation. His ability to sing and spit major bars keeps everyone astonished. We ask him how his life has been affected music. He had a tough Road to where he is today. He is truly a living testimony. He allowed the audience to hear his upcoming track “Crossroads”. One of our favorite projects he produced. JR is currently working on a project and we look forward to hearing more from him.
Overall the show became a success! We united artists and entities they may have never met before. We had several we would like to thank for being apart of our project:
Rudy Alexander (Takeover Studios/ A&R with Rap-A-Lot)

Future gives the world their theme today for W.C.W. Your ‘Women’s Crush Wednesday’ or your lady friend you are convincing to steer back would love. Future sings all over this, with some pop music flows. Sounding commercial we can say.
