SilaS is showing us "The Hokage Way"

In 4 years, SilaS has done some pretty amazing things. His journey thus far has been something to marvel. From going viral (with a song that most kids from the 90's era could love and appreciate) to creating a movement and a lane all based on "being oneself". Fast forward to 2018. SilaS is doing things that most artists (Indie or Major) would hope they could in their careers. With his recent release The Last Cherry Blossom (available on all streaming services), he's partnered with Jackson's Luckytown Brewery to create his own beer Cherry Blossom. Not to mention TLCB charted #38 on iTunes music charts. A major accomplishment for most Indie Artist. With a music soundtrack to his credit and tour on the way, things are looking up for the 'Hokage'. Let the Village rejoice!! For tour info, follow @dearsilas

Trunk Muzik's Crown King

King Of Trunk Muzik (Click Here)

Columbus, Mississippi's own Big Zack Mack is bringing back a sound that is missed and highly appreciated on King Of Trunk Muzik. Mack has a major influence that reference UGK as it contains plenty "Country Rap Tunes". The project mixes syrup infused melodies with an undeniable baritone that provides the proper element for the true essence of rider music. Overall, Big Zack Mack is a hidden gem and if you are in need of a fix for some knock for the truck, than look no further...your King is here!

TKWGO Forever: A Tribute to Lil Lonnie 1995 - 2018

"I'm come from a small city. North Jackson to be exact. Don't too many make it out where I'm from. See Jackson is like every major's infested with drugs, different sides divided by territory and actual retaliation. I lost my Mom at an early age, so I grew up in a single father home in one of the worst neighborhoods in the City. We didn't have much, but I know I wanted better for myself and my family. I went and put in overtime from hustlin'and paying for the studio time, to grinding getting paid to do shows from Gulfport to Milwaukee. I didn't have much, but I had a vision."  "Make A Way" -Lil Lonnie

Lonnie's vision was coming into fruition. At 22, he had accomplished a lot and was doing it in a fashion that most from his hometown haven't seen. On April 29, 2018, the City of Jackson had suffered a major loss. When the word spread that the young Artist/Rapper Lil Lonnie had lost his life to senseless violence, it shook the City and surrounding areas! Lonnie's music and impact touched many. Major Artists such as Juicy J, Project Pat and LL Cool J (just a name of few) all paid their respects to the slain rapper. 

Lonnie's untimely death has a narrative that has been common in the music community. It goes something like this: Young Rapper/Artist on the verge of great promise pronounced dead in his hometown. Artists such as Atlanta's Bankroll Fresh, Alabama's Doe B and Detroit's Dex Osama have all lost their lives before their careers took off. It's truly a tragedy and the people and fans who loved and supported the music are left with the undying question...WHY??

We may never get the answer to that question. But we shall never forget the contributions that these artists left behind! Lonnie's legacy will continue to live on. Known as an advocate for unity, his life will be remembered and his music will continue to grow! The world will now know what's going on Lonnie!! May you Rest In Peace!
