Love & Hip Hop’s Lil Mo & @itsVain ‘Breakup to Makeup’

Art can mimic reality so well sometimes that you can barely tell which is real and which is art. Such is the case with Lil Mo’s real-life Break Up to Make Up story with her husband, which plays out on this season’s Love and Hip Hop New York AND in her video with Vain called, “Break Up to Make Up.”

Lil Mo is currently in the headlines for the recent visit to Couples Court with her husband. Not to mention all the drama that has been playing out in this season’s Love and Hip Hop New York. With the allegations of her husband’s cheating, their son reading the blogs, therapy sessions and SO MUCH MORE!!
Vain is best known for his videos and collaborations with Jim Jones, Red Cafe, DJ Jazzy Joyce and Slim of 112. Vain and Lil Mo do not disappoint with this Classic Love Story.

The video features some super smooth hip-hop lyrics from artist V.A.I.N and some “superwoman,” vocals from one of our favorite Diva’s, Lil Mo. To top it off the chorus features the Stylistic’s “Break Up to Make Up,” classic hook with Lil Mo’s hip-hop styling.
Check out Hip Hop Artist V.A.I.N along with RnB diva Lil’ Mo as they navigate their own Love and Hip Hop rocky relationship AND “Break Up to Make Up” below:

DJ Khaled Joins Solo LaMaze On "OoSheWanParty" Track @sololamaze


(Louisville, KY) - Born in Chicago and raised in Louisville aka "Derby City," rapper Solo LaMaze always loved music and as a youth found himself listening to music almost every hour of the day.

Getting started early Solo picked up the mic and began rapping at the age of 11 after developing a passion for the battle rap scene and released his first project Year of Solo in 2003

That 2003 project was followed up by his Synthetic Dope LP where he was the executive producer,engineering and producing the entire project on his own.

"It was a no brainer" to begin making music," Solo LaMaze explained. "I was influenced by the greats like Jay Z Wayne, Jeezy and Kanye."

In addition to drawing inspiration from some of the greatest rappers of all time, Solo Lamaze also found himself producing music and following the sounds of Dr.Dre, Timberland, Mannie Fresh, DJ Paul and Juicy J.

This desire to create led Solo LaMaze to opening his own studio called Organized Swagg where before the age of 18 he subsequently released several projects including Bowel Movement, Beast Mode Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, Rare Form” and “Sushi Sushi Sushi.

"My music is candy with the medicine in it, I entertain and slide in a message simultaneously," he said.

The philosophy about his music has apparently worked and since then his credits as producer include the likes of David Banner, Beanie Sigel, Juvenile, Sean Paul of the Young Bloods, Kool Daddy Fresh, Twista, J-Kwon, Mr. Serve On, and Young Bleed.

Also, ironically besides Lil Wayne, Solo LaMaze was the last person to work with Grammy Award winning rapper Static Major before his untimely death, an experience he’ll never forget.

Reflecting on the past, but still looking forward Solo Lamaze is getting ready to tour in South Florida in February and has several spot dates where he is planning on performing through the Winter.

Until then Solo is grateful for the outpouring of support he has received over the years as he continues pushing his music.

"Thank for all the support you guys been giving me and I wont let you down. Relax and Be safe tho," he concluded. Be Sure to Check out Solo Lamaze on Big Heff's Streets Most Wanted Tour in Feb. 2018.

[New Video] Produkt - Paradise @ProduKtJRG


"Paradise" is an introspective trip into the mind of Produkt, a seasoned hip-hop veteran from The Bronx. Produkt has built a name for himself over the years as a street-smart lyricist with a lot of range as an artist. "Paradise" is a single from Produkts most recent effort "Change The Frequency" which is available now on all major streaming platforms. The single is backed by a black and white visual that flawlessly captures the essence of Produkts energy on this record. The gritty imagery in Produkts lyrics are a testament to his life experiences and the very skeletal, jazzy instrumental gives the emcee enough space to eloquently deliver his rhymes.


Produkt raps "Troubled youth, but a stargazer/ philly blunts til the stars gave up, concrete heat through the streets, the scars caged us, Mobb Deep beats on repeat the stars raised us" it is clear that Produkt comes from the golden-era of New York hip-hop and his authenticity is on full display here. Although the verses may be tackling a lot of the hardships of Produkts reality, the hook on this is very motivational and triumphant which gives an overall positive feel to the theme of this record. Check out the visual below as Produkts rhymes come to life in the streets of The Bronx, NY and make sure you stay on the look out for more music.

[New Visual] Ziico Niico- That Bag @Ziico_Niico


Ziico Niico is a bubbling sensation coming out of The Bronx, NY. The French Montana affiliate was first introduced to hip-hop over a year ago with his single "That Bag" a song that transcends both the NYC streets and the club scene into mainstream media with over 800,000 views on YouTube. Unfortunately, Ziico Niico is fighting a case for conspiracy charges, which has been a difficult obstacle thrown his way while trying to reach the next level in his career. However, Niico has still been able to release projects such as "I'm Heem" and "Zaddy Heem" as well as placements with Bronx legend French Montana. The charisma and persona behind Ziico Niico is very intoxicating and organic to his Uptown roots, he is definitely someone to look out for coming out of NYC if he is able to get passed all of his legal troubles.

Hajji BlackStone - Hot Sauce ft. Kogniak (Official Music Video) @blackstonehaji


Hajji BlackStone delivers on a visual for his new single "Hot Sauce" featuring Kogniak. This Afrobeat banger is backed by a hypotizing instrumental from producer Dusty Productions. The chemistry between Hajji and Dusty is clear on this record where they provide deeply rooted cultural influences in a way that comes off very natural. The autotune-driven hook is enough to catch the listeners ear, but it is the well put together verses that string this track together. It is clear that Hajji has mastered his pen game with lyrical mechanics that reflect more of a east coast emcee rather an Afrobeat singer. Director ReelEyeCons does a great job of bringing this song to life with imagery that perfectly captures the essence of the record. Bouncing back and forth from the big city to a beautiful waterfall, this video documents the lavish lifestyle of Hajji BlackStone. "Hot Sauce" will be featured on Hajji BlackStones upcoming project "Lil Senegal" look out for that and more coming from Hajji.

UBUNTUFM MEETS BISHOP THE OVERSEER @BEPC99


GREETINGS BISHOP, GREAT TO LINK UP WITH YOU AND PROVIDE US WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO POSE A FEW QUESTIONS.
YOUR TRACK, ‘RUNNIN BACK’, IS QUITE A REMARKABLE ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENT IN EVERY MUSICAL ASPECT. SO TELL US, WHAT INSPIRED THE TRACK?


Peace to you and yours. I appreciate your interest in the single. I'm humbled by the reviews and this subsequent interview. It is psychologically impactful when you're exposed to albums like “Black America Again” [Common] and “To Pimp A Butterfly” [Kendrick Lamar]. In these times, there are things going on in the world that are greater than oneʼs self. As an artist, you have a duty to report current events as accurately and honestly as lyrically possible. When you see a dead child from Syria wash up upon the shores of Turkey; when nearly 200 girls remain missing after being kidnapped by Boko Haram; and when African American males are being executed in the streets of United States by the police without due process; you have no other choice but to address the facts. Events such as these and moreover inspired “Runnin Back”.

I LIKE THE TRACK. GREAT ONE. HOW IS ITS PERFORMANCE IN TERMS OF PUBLIC RECEPTION?

Actually, I have not performed “Runnin Back” live publicly. The label is still in the music servicing phase of the single. The reception from the DJ's, Record Pools, and Radio Stations has been very welcoming. The average rating is approximately 3.5/4 out of 5. The next phase of the project will consist of shooting a music video.

“Runnin Back” is food for the soul...

DO YOU THINK THE TRACK WOULD HAVE FARED BETTER IN TERMS OF WIDER ACCEPTANCE?

In my view, some people view the arts as an escape from reality. Some people don’t want the ills of society force fed through music. Some people say that “Runnin Back” is food for the soul. The one thing that everyone can universally agree upon is that “Runnin Back” is not like any of the other music out currently, and that it provides a refreshing prospective.

PERSONALLY I AM CAPTIVATED BY YOUR CHOICE OF LYRICS. YOU ACTUALLY PLAY WITH WORDS. HENCE MY QUESTION: DO YOU HAVE ANY HISTORY WITH CONVENTIONAL POETRY?

I appreciate that you get the crux that I intended. Yes, the origins of my poetry began in elementary school. Before composing song compositions, I wrote poems. I actively began composing songs in 1996 at the age of 15. Now, 10 commercial releases later, the rest is history.

"It’s extremely important that music has substance..."

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND THE GREAT HIP-HOP MUSIC YOU DO? DID YOU INITIALLY SET OUT TO BECOME A RAPPER?

I have rigorously studied the craft, past and present content. I have written more songs than I have actually published. I have more than 1,000 songs in my repertoire. Just under 100 songs have been commercially published. Being a “Rapper” was never an objective and never will be. For me, music and the arts has always been therapeutic. Listening to my compositions and the music of others has gotten me through some challenging situations. So it’s extremely important that music has substance. Fame was never an objective. Honestly, I would be content if I could “ghost write” for other acts and continue to record my song compositions for synchronization licensing placement into television, films, commercials and video games.

MY CURIOSITY IS GETTING THE BETTER OF ME. WHAT INFORMED YOUR CHOICE OF THE STAGE NAME ‘BISHOP THE OVERSEER’?

Once upon a time, my stage name was “Ses Dogg”. Growing up in Newark, New Jersey, people would call me “Ses” because they couldn’t pronounce my birth name. As a teenager, I was advised by a potential manager that I should change my stage name to something that could sustain long term. In my quest for names, I wanted to choose something meaningful. Something that in 20 years, where I stand today, I could stand behind. Long story short, I chose “Bishop” based on its religious background. I have always been a God fearing believer, and although imperfect, my belief is unwavering. Bishop’s acronym is “Best Individual Style Only Happens through Potential” which is self explanatory. “The Overseer” in the church is a nickname for a Bishop. The Overseer oversees the operations in which the Bishop is responsible for in the church. As the “Overseer” in the Hip-Hop/Rap industry, I have a duty as one of the gatekeepers of the culture to ensure that the content I publish is sustainable music with substance.

"Streaming, sync placement and brand campaigns ... is the future, going forward..."

THE HIP-HOP MUSIC INDUSTRY IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD IS SADDLED WITH ITS OWN PECULIAR LIMITATIONS. HOWEVER, THE INDUSTRY IN THE U.S SEEMS TO ENJOY THE REGARD AS THE POSTER CHILD FOR ARTISTIC AND COMMERCIAL EXCELLENCE. DO YOU THINK THE INDUSTRY IS AT ITS PEAK IN THE U.S?

From a commercialization prospective, yes. It’s much more lucrative in the marketplace today than it once was. Knowing the market and how to exploit it is key. Streaming, sync placement and brand campaigns (artist representing products and services) is the future, going forward, until further notice. It’s no longer about album/single sales or downloads. It’s about visibility and buzz. Touring and live performances are irreplaceable for those that can develop and sustain a loyal fan base.

AFRICAN HIP-HOP ARTISTS HAVE LONG CONSIDERED COLLABORATIONS WITH THEIR AMERICAN COUNTERPARTS AS A MOVE FOR SUCCESS IN THEIR CAREERS. MOST OFTEN THAN NOT, IT DOESN'T WORK OUT AS ENVISIONED, SOMETIMES WITH SCANDALOUS CONSEQUENCES BACK HOME. COULD THERE BE SOMETHING THE AFRICAN RAP ARTISTS COULD DO BETTER IN THEIR APPROACH?

I am not educated enough on this topic to speak on it. I would need to know the facts and background on what or what wasn’t happening. Generally speaking, if the act is decent and song concept works, I personally don’t have a problem collaborating with anyone regardless of the country of origin.

LET US GET BACK TO YOUR WORK. IS THERE A GENERAL PHILOSOPHY TO YOUR MUSIC?

Yes, it has to have substance. Meaning, it has to have a message. Every topic doesn’t have to be serious or about political or social issues. The topics should be diverse, categorically and well articulated.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE GOING AT THE MOMENT? ANY PROJECTS IN THE WORKS?

Our label re-released “Money Spot (Pt. 1)” on August 29, 2017. It is a remastered double album “Eastside” and “Westside” consisting of 22 tracks with 4 additional “ghost tracks”. The single “Runnin Back” is from the album “44 Steps Forward/45 Steps Back” which is in the creative development process. The focus, as I stated previously, is shooting the music video for “Runnin Back” and continue its global exploitation and notoriety.

"Without the people there’s no me..."

‘RUNNIN BACK’ HAS BEEN ENJOYING PLAY TIME ON UBUNTUFM HIP-HOP RADIO, AND GARNERING SOME CONSIDERABLE INTEREST FROM OUR LISTENING AUDIENCE. PERHAPS YOU HAVE A WORD FOR THEM BEFORE WE WRAP UP.

Bishop Enterprises Publishing and I appreciate you, UbuntuFM, and your listeners for supporting “Runnin Back”. This is for the people and the worldwide movement for social justice, equality and self-awareness. Without the people there’s no me, no Bishop Enterprises or any other label or act seeking to publish art or music. The movement starts with the people and the people supporting content with substance. When given the opportunity, I would love to perform live in Johannesburg. Never let discouragement destroy your reason for being (manifest destiny).

OUR SINCERE GRATITUDE FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE YOU ON THE PLATFORM. WE WISH THE BEST FOR YOUR ARTISTIC ENDEAVORS EVEN AS WE EXPECT TO ENTERTAIN OUR AUDIENCE WITH MORE FROM YOU.

Thank you for having me. Peace to you and yours. Likewise. Wishing you the best. Bishop out.
