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!
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)
Early this month we went full throttle on the road with some dope upcoming artists from the South. Linking with Big Who from Houston connected us with far more than we imagined!
We had a super dope weekend as we connected with many arising artists.
We linked up with Crowd Control Music Entertainment with Christy Duffy and Joanna Applegate. They welcomed us with great hospitality in Tallahassee. We got to check out Kodak Black and Q Money as well. We then traveled to ATL and linked up with OMB Bloodbath and her camp. 4PF Lil Nate, Tray K with Taliban Gang/Lil Mexico, Mykko Montana, FNM $hoota, International T, and many more.
First stop was Dallas : BG Kenny Lou Appears as Special guests for Arlington’s Lil Splurge
Tallahassee Fl. Scoot Bankz opens up for Kodak Black during FAMU Homecoming show at Potbelly’s
Atlanta, GA “AC3” We visit OMB Bloodbath and a Host of others
Westbank Artist FNM $hoota had to let some heat release with his new 3-Track EP “All Hype Shit”. Don’t worry, he said a mouthful in a split second. He has production by Bogibandit. Check and see for yourself!!
How else would “The Ghost” himself pull up for “The NOLA Loud Fest” in New Orleans? With positive energy and the rawest tracks he could have ever created. D Block’s General Styles P bought the real thorough hip hop heads to The Howlin’ Wolf August 24th.
Styles P recently dropped his EP “G-Host” and was perfect timing for the streets to lock in. You can check it out in all media outlets.
With dope sounds by DJ Keith Scott, and MC Dollar on the mic, it was for sure a smoke session throughout the facility.
We chopped it up with B-Nice, New Orleans Event Host And Entertainment Influencer, who curates an enlightening show for the Independent and Underground music scene. He allows artists from the city to present their talents with some of the most influential mainstream artists in the nation.
We were able to catch performances from some of New Orleans rawest yet most talented artists in the city:
The opening acts had the right to kill the stage. We enjoyed their performance.
One thing we did noticed, was a few opening acts left before the OG himself even stepped foot onto the stage. With an honor to present yourself before an artist such as Styles P, you would expect the artists and crowd to stay for the main act. Not sure what may have caused this, but it was mind boggling to see the crowd fled away. We believe paying dues no matter what level is perceived to be. Respect and honor the leaders who lead us.
Overall, the NOLA Loud Fest was pretty cool, Styles P even came out with Hennessy bottles and poured up with the fans. Definitely a highlight moment. Big up to him and his team. We look forward to see who they will be having at the next Fest.
Drake definitely put on for the city of New Orleans with his hit single “In My Feelings” from his latest project “Scorpion”. Drake is well aware of New Orleans culture, as a member of Young Money/Cash Money Records. With the “KeKe Challenge” stirring the Internet into a frenzy, he also gave the world an overview of New Orleans Bounce Music. Having Super Producer BlaqNMild on the beat is the perfect example of a bounce track!
Having New Orleans own Magnolia Shorty on the track “I Got A New Boy, & That Nigga Trade” puts smiles on the cities face. Everyone in the city should have brightened up, having this track placed repeatedly across the globe. We salute to her family as she Rest In Peace. He also have the City Girls Featured on the track.
Directed by Karena Evans, the video had special appearances by La La Anthony, Shiggy, and The Cosby’s Show Phylicia Rashad. The video has a fun-filled vibe with in the heart of New Orleans.
We got the chance to sit with Dipset’s own Juelz Santana while in Houston last week. He is now on the Dipset Forever Tour. Despite his court case he is dealing with at the moment, he was approved for travel so he can continue his tour with his fellow brothers Jim Jones, Cam’Ron, and Freeky Zeeky.
While in Houston, Juelz links up with The Hip Hop Live Review Show before his show. He had the chance to meet some beautiful, smart kids, supporting them 100% in their schooling and goals for the future.
Juelz speaks on doing tons of music, having great times traveling while on tour, adapting to changes due to his case, and Houston and New Orleans love. We pray for him and his family as well as his future endeavors.
