Corey Ether Loves Brown Skin

Just under a month ago, Corey Ether debuted a single and visual celebrating is love for black women. To say “Brown Skin” was timely would be an absolute understatement.

Plenty of people would agree that black women deserve more celebration and that it’s a bit cliche that it would come during black history month, but it is what it is. “Brown Skin” while short, is exactly what some people want.

“Brown Skin” is a product of Corey Ether in its entirety. Written, produced and sang by Ether.

The visual is even more simplistic than the song and features black women of different skin tones.

Slitta Spreads His Wings with Broken Halo

Slitta gave artists 6 weeks of 2020 to put their projects out, before he stopped playing fair. Now, it’s too late. Slitta’s latest Broken Halo has arrived.

Broken Halo is 13 tracks hand chosen by Slitta himself to remind fans that despite the fact that loyalty is currently missing from the culture, it is still very much a necessity. Slitta wastes absolutely no time establishing the theme, Broken Halo opens with the AllDay produced bop “We Bout” featuring 057 Bully.

As Broken Halo progresses, Slitta narrates tales of love and loyalty in creative ways, the way only he could. “Been There” is a product of Slitta in its totality and its motivation at its finest. “Shooters” is an ode to the hitters and “La Familia” is about exactly what the title says.

Slitta put his own talents on front street, rapping, singing, and producing a number of the tracks on Broken Halo. Though he enlisted the help of 057 Bully and a number of producer, Slitta in his own words, “ain’t compromising shit.” The D1CMG powerhouse served as the executive producer for Broken Halo, ensuring fans would see his vision as he prepares for his next release, Trap Angel.

Ve7gas Knights is in Cyberspace

Super creative Ve7gas Knights has a style all his own. The Chicago native has a knack for creating new and innovative sounds and his single “Cyberspace” is proof.

Inspired by an array of artists including Lil Wayne and Lincoln Park, Ve7gas Knights blends styles and creates vibes like no one else. Exhibit A: his latest single “Cyberspace.” “Cyberspace” is simple, yet futuristic. Ve7gas Knights employed not only his lyrical talent for “Cyberspace,” but production as well. Catchy, but not overbearing, if “Cyberspace” is indicative of what Ve7gas Knights has in store for 2020, Chicago has something to look forward to.

Ve7gas Knights is far from the everyday entertainer. The rapper, producer, and videographer cofounded what is now known as “Prince Edwards Dance Company”. Tucked somewhere relatable and nothing the world’s seen before Ve7gas Knights’ creativity is fueled but life experience, but his passion comes from his desire for his daughter to have everything she wants.

Ve7gas Knights has obviously started 2020 in grind mode. His EP Intergalactic, is slated for release January 29. Check out “Cyberspace” and get in tune.

Slitta’s Last Time

According to the D1CMG camp fans are less than a month away from yet another Slitta project. However, before the Trap Angel takes fans on a new journey he made one last video from More Pink: “Last Time.”

The album created to remind the world what r’n’b sounds like debuted on Valentine’s Day on 2019 an effectively put everyone in their feelings. “Last Time,” the final track on the album, was the most befitting final release from More Pink. “Last Time” not only signifies the end of the album, but the end of the Pink & Red era.

“Last Time” is a tale many know all too well. A man waits until his lady is “done done” to get his act together. Produced by Slitta, “Last Time,” reinforces the producer’s musical genius. The visual was filmed by Young Will Productions and features fellow producer All Day in the role of the therapist with no faith in Slitta’s plan to win the heart of his scorned lover.

Justin Famous Decides to Run It Up

Justin Famous did not come to play, and he certainly did not come to lose. The near Westside native debut his new single “Run It Up,” today.

Justin Famous is undeniably in a lane of his own. His sound is an eclectic blend of hip-hop, soul and r’n’b that separates him from the sounds currently dominating hip-hop. A true lyricist, Justin Famous’s music is more than just entertaining, it’s thought provoking and “Run It Up” is evidence.

The first single from his upcoming EP Day Dreamin’, “Run It Up is catchy, but not shallow. An inner conflict over music, “Run It Up” is the multitalented, rapper, producer, and songwriter evaluating the choices he’s making and how they’re going to effect his future.

Far from the standard and far above average Justin Famous is an artist to get to know.

Slitta’s Story Tellers

Last night Slitta gave fans insight to his music never previously experienced in an effort to help people catch up on all the music he has delivered, New Regime Agency in conjunction with D1CMG presented Slitta’s Story Tellers.

Slitta wears many hats and it’s easy for one to be confused by all that he does. Overnight, in a small room at 35th Street Studios among some of Chicago’s most notable, Slitta unpacked his process, motivation, and the roles he played in creating the four projects he has released since March of 2018.

Hosted by Shawn Grant and DJ’d by Marie Tha DJ, Slitta’s Story Tellers was a unique event and just was Chicago needed. I’m a setting very reminiscent of MTV’s Unplugged, Slitta combined high energy, mimosa-infused performances with intimate interviews for a night to remember.

Slitta opened by performing songs from his Who Made The Beat playlist, the project that started it all. Already a well- known producer and songwriter, Who Made The Beat was Slitta’s introduction to the world as a D1CMG artist. The nine track effort, featured YouTube beats the embodied the vibes of popular artists.

He followed with performances and explanations of tracks from his debut album Pink & Red. Slitta described the album, that he admittedly wanted to be entirely self produced as him painting his own picture of r’n’b. Though, he felt compelled to utilize beats created by other producers, Slitta still delivered an album that only he could. The performance reinstilled just that. A fan favorite, “Sex on Fire” was the last song added to Pink & Red and Slitta’s favorite, as well.

More Red seemed to be the most important album of the evening. Slitta performed a number of songs from the album released in January and opened up about his inspiration. “Coach Fatality, he the G.O.A.T,” Slitta explained. “He was my motivation behind this project. He’s the best producer ever.”

Slitta didn’t let his admiration for the work of his fellow 80Apes producer dominate his interview. He unpacked “Finesse Magician” a phrase Slitta coined himself, emphasized the importance of uniting and creating positive activities to save the youth from “Englewood Blues,” and celebrated that his cousin and motivation for “Dirty Game” would be home soon.

More Red was followed by its successor More Pink. Slitta admired that it was the source of much panic, as he only had a months to create it. Slitta performed the self-produced “Obsession.” Slightly disappointed, Slitta felt he had to perform “What Lovers Do.” The Song unfortunately wasn’t made in time to appeal on his More Pink album. It’s not only one of Slitta’s favorites, but a fan favorite as well and inspired word for word recitation and much dancing from the crowd.

Slitta ended the night with the previously unreleased, “Apeshit” which is undoubtedly a hit as well.

All and all Slitta’s Storytellers was an event that won’t soon be forgotten.
