What's good people? Needless to say 2015 ended on a high note for Mississippi...music wise that is. There was a flurry of talent that made a major impact and we even got the chance to see one of our own cause a viral phenomenon leading into the new year! Hip-Hop Artist Silas has the internet going nuts with his new single "Gullah Gullah Island". The Donche produced track can be seen and heard everywhere. With Major acts such as Mississippi's own Rae Sremmurd getting in on all the excitement! If that's not enough to be hyped about, we're starting the year off strong with Jackson Indie Music Week. From Jan. 11-17, we will see Artist Showcases, Panels & topping the week off with the 2nd Annual Jackson Hip-Hop Awards!
I can't tell you how good it feels to see a lot of the artists I predicted from last years 'Artist to Watch' (Go Back to Jan. 2015 article) are doing as good if not better leading into the new year. I think we're getting ready to see a lot of great things happen in the State of Mississippi! I can't wait to post this year's 'Artists to Watch' piece. I have been pretty accurate this past 2 years running. I don't plan on slowing down! So to all my fellow Artist, Producers, Bloggers & Tastemakers alike, let's show em what greatness looks like!
Peace & Love
