Talking to Emerging Lyricist, Terrerizm

Share

With the reemergence of the lyricst again on the 2013 hip hop roster, 2014 is guaranteed to be popping. One of the bright spots will be the Skale Boyz with artist Terrerizm leading their campaign. You can envision Terrerizm as a battering ram invading the castle. Coming back to back with hard hitting lyrics over original hot tracks. Clearly what will set Terrerizm apart from the pact will be the fact he is no spring chicken, he is a artist who has experienced life and it comes out in his gritty flow.

West Philadelphia born and raised…lol…sound familiar? Hope so because Terrerizm is just that. Philadephia is famously known for its hot lyricist and Terrerizm wont disappoint. What is even more appealing is that he’s a throwback of when rappers didnt immulate each other and every tape you popped in sounded different and diverse in concepts. Without a shadow of a doubt he qualifies as a gangster rapper but his life and love of good 80′s r&b and ol school hip hop are skillfully blended into his music. Every track is intended to transport you back in time to cocaine 80′s early 90′s as he describes as “The Golden Era of The Hustler”.

To clearly understand Terrerizm the artist, you must first understand the concept which Skale boyz Music is based upon. To be a Skaleboy, is to be someone who’s life is teetering in the balance, someone who wants to do good but only sees bad resources for his goal. We dare you to live a week with his music. Classic? Do we dare say? Let you be the judge. But one thing is for sure to combine rock soulful r&b and hip hop is an accomplishment only done by the greats.

Hannah Spivey: Hello. How are you?

Terrerizm: Im fine and yourself

Hannah Spivey: I’m doing well. So tell our readers a little about yourself and what you do?

Terrerizm: I am a  rap artist and CEO of Skale Boyz Music Group

Hannah Spivey: Whu did you decide  to get into your occupation?

Terrerizm: Never was a choice, it was always something I’ve done. I decided to take it more serious this past year.

Hannah Spivey: What makes you stand out from all the other artists?

Terrerizm: My voice, showmenship and not looking to sound the same. I actually lived in both Philly and the South so both music genres are infused in me. I also study all music

Hannah Spivey: Who have you had the opportunity to work with in the industry?

Terrerizm: When I was younger  I got a quick buzz so I was able to work with legends such as DJ Miz, Ruggedness, Madd Drama and Kamaflaj

Hannah Spivey: What are you currently working on?

Terrerizm: Da Golden Era of the Husla expected to be released late Spring

Hannah Spivey: Who would you like to work with?

Terrerizm: Troy Ave, Rick Ross and Pusha T to name a few

Hannah Spivey: What do many people not know about you?

Terrerizm: My musical range and the fact my inspiration comes from rock more so than rap

Hannah Spivey: What should we expect from you in the near future?

 Terrerizm: Album release, pop ups, performances, and free cd giveaways

Hannah Spivey: What and who inspires you to keep going?

Terrerizm: Wanting to hear myself and seeing how far I can go. Also the ability to work with the artists I listen to

Hannah Spivey: How can people find and connect with you?

MIXTAPE REVIEW: PHILLY BLOCKS—KAPO MUSIK 2

Written By:  Wisdom

What we have here is 5.6.3. Entertainment Presents Philly Blocks: Kapo Musik 2. The Louisville slugger comes out swinging on this Southern meets East Coast offering. Using the tried and true formula that is permeating speakers throughout urban jungles, Philly Blocks is intent on making a name for himself in the crowded rap arena. Fourteen cuts (including an intro) touch on various topics familiar to listeners of Trap/Southern Rap. After the obligatory “Intro”, Philly Blocks starts off strong with “My Thoughts”. This is the most powerful cut on Kapo Musik 2, as it allows Blocks to wax poetic over a soulful sample. With lyrical skill, he paints vivid pictures for listeners to understand where his mind is throughout this mixtape. “Inner city blues like Marvin Gaye” is one of the poignant gems that Philly Blocks drops on this song. “Limits” is another tune that captures the attention of eardrums, with an infectious backdrop serving as the foundation for lyrics laced with venom. The themes are nothing new: drugs, jail, street life. Philly Blocks manages to spit lyrics without sounding pretentious or fake. His reality mirrors the the lives of those that are drawn into his musical world. “Lord Have Mercy” is his thug prayer, showing Dipset influences thoughtout. This is the cut that has Philly Blocks showing that spiritual side, even if it is draped in urban, street lingo. You can tell that the Kentucky thoroughbred pours his soul into his music through liquid lyrics.

Truth be told, he is not Kendrick Lamar or Lupe Fiasco when it comes to lyrical dexterity or complexity, but he doesn’t profess to be in that mold. What you are getting is a true to HIS heart artist that is using rap as a tool to spit about the ills in society. These images may not be pretty, but they are indeed real. “Celebration” touches on this, as Philly Blocks talks about friends and comrades in the struggle for survival. Typical tales of street existence and getting rich are littered through this celebratory song. The next two selections give props to UGK legend Pimp C. “Pimp C (Skit)” and “Pimp C Of My City”are both nods to Chad Butler, who put Port Arthur, Texas on the map (alongside his rhyming cohort Bun B). You get the notion with these two additions to Kapo Musik 2 that Philly Blocks has been a true fan since the days of Ridin’ Dirty (check the UGK discography). “Pimp C Of My City” brings the listener into that Texas state of mind. Keeping with that Texas theme, we have the next offering, “Kali Texas” (featuring Lock From Da Block). “Smokin’ on that Cali (Kali), sippin’ on that Texas” is the mantra for this Philly Blocks/chopped and screwed-like mixtape cut.  The slow, methodical track is the appropriate backdrop for the syrup-laced track.  Giving those within earshot a more melodic cut for the feminine persuasion, “Love Me Or Leave Me” is an ambient selection.  The atmospheric track provides just enough space for Philly Blocks to spit 21st century game at the ladies.  He gives us just another glimpse into his multi-faceted thug persona.  “Moving”, the tenth track on Kapo Musik 2, starts with audio from voicemail messages setting the stage for Philly Blocks to use a double-time flow.  This flow is another weapon in the arsenal for making power moves and stacking chips.

The most auspicious title on Kapo Musik 2 is “Iran Contra” (featuring Bankroll Chaser and Big Q).  The psuedo-political title makes way for Blocks, Chaser and Q to compare the large-scale drug wars during the Reagan era with the happenings on many urban streets today.  The concept is a dope one, even if not executed at a high degree.  Another ode to money-making on this mixtape is “Road To Riches”.  Topics ranging from fed time, commissaries, and gone but not forgotten street soldiers is filtered through “Road To Riches”.  It’s a dirty tale, to say the least, but also an inspirational one.  You can feel, yet again, Philly Blocks taking listeners on a tour through every hood and ghetto in America.  “Celebration (Remix)”, featuring Lil Daddy O and Jamarcus, covers familiar territory over a nice track.  This remix of Track 5 has each artist bringing their vision to the masses, saluting those still in the struggle, in the system, in the trap (whatever that proverbial trap may be).  The last selection on Kapo Musik 2, “It’s Going Down” (featuring Bandman), gives you that Hotlanta bounce and feel reminiscent of Young Dro a few years ago.  The title is self-explanatory, as both rhymers detail what’s really going on in Trap USA.

Kapo Musik 2 doesn’t break any new ground lyrically or thematically.  It’s the same, or very similar, story of young Black males circumventing, navigating, and transversing a system not designed for his success.  Philly Blocks adds his own unique seasonings to his Kentucky-fried saga, giving those listening to Kapo Musik 2 more food for thought.  With 5.6.3. Entertainment backing their flagship artist, you should be seeing and hearing more from this artist in the future.

Biography

Blueboy’s a man of few words (unless he’s rapping) and a lot of action. He keeps it real at all time and that’s the only type of people he will align himself with. He is THA REALEST lyricist you never heard but is waiting to hear, promise. His style is best describe as a lyrical storyteller that invokes thought and incites crowds with substance filled songs that deal with real life emotions, thoughts, and dreams.

Working a regular job was fine for the time but he wanted and still wants so much more for himself and his daughter. The living check to check thing wasn’t cutting it anymore so shortly after she was born in ’04 he started back writing and recording new songs with a more defined sense of direction and greater desire to become the greatest rapper ever. And before it’s all said and done Blueboy will be.

Mix Tape Review: Luv Step 2

Share

LuvStep2

Philadelphia is home to some of the most gritty, underground sounds on the East coast, so it it no surprise that this is the home of Legendary duo Dj Flufftronix and Dirty South Joe. Universally hailed as the creators of luvstep.

 

While listening to the  Hypnotizing Soulfully Sultry sounds of Luvstep 2 you may find yourself in a wavy, slow fist-pumping trance almost automatically. One of the best ways to describe the eclectic sounds may be Sexy Futuristic Wave Music. No matter what kind of music you listen to you can’t help but find yourself being drawn towards the universal mood setter (<3step).  Blending the crowd frenzy inspiring Dubstep with melodic trance inducing electronica and then fusing it with mind enhancing R & B melodies creates the phenomenon known as LuvStep. LuvStep has even been hailed by some as “The mix that saved Dubstep Forever”.  Both Dj’s hold ties with Mad Decent Records, who in addition to being renowned for their contributions to dubstep and electronica, have also received much criticism for remixing and repackaging well known dance music with captivating cover artwork. With the growing popularity of Luvstep and it’s international appeal,  I think it is safe to say that we can look forward to much more great music from Flufftronix and Dirty South Joe in the Future

The Real King Jamez

18223_3188233030258_1541153617_n

Pursuing a dream as big as this in an industry that is now designed to primarily feed the big dawgs is one of the most challenging missions an artist can conquer. Plain and simple, A&R’s and music execs are no longer interested in building careers to last. It’s all about breaking things down, exploiting artists, and getting money back by any means necessary. With all the deception and “politricks” in the way, sometimes the battle to be heard can get so discouraging that you will literally question yourself at times. Staying focused and not giving up is a battle within this battle itself. King Jamez  is an artist with a plan and an education to back it up. The thought of an educated rapper that isn’t labeled as “conscious” is one that many people don’t imagine is real. However, there are more educated emcees and producers out there than we know. With 8 projects deep in the game, this independent heavyweight is not a newbie to this. He is a well seasoned artist that has put in overtime and grind to make it to his destination. One thing that we don’t hear enough of is rappers endorsing the benefits of a post secondary education. What does the rapper who has survived the trenches of academia have to say?

28028_3188233750276_1496686516_nBK: What’s the move after graduation?

KJ: More traveling. I am expanding out to several different states and countries. I am cranking the campaign up and getting more into the music. I’m meeting more Dj’s and I have a lot more material coming. I’m about to turn up for-real.

BK: Artistwise, what has your growth been like before college to now?

KJ: Before college, I was putting in work doing the indie thing. The growth has really been financially and mentally. There were things that I was doing when I was younger that I’m not doing now. When I go and do a show, I do the show. I don’t go and bullsh*t and f*ck off. The image, branding, and material that’s being put out is all a growing process. When I first started, I felt like anything that I wrote, recorded, and spent my time one was about to HIT the wall FOR-REAL. I was like, ” Muh f*cka*’s gonna hear this sh*t”! Now, I’ve grown to a point where I realize that everything that I do may not be tight to everybody else or, it might not be what the fans want to hear. I learned to pick and choose.

BK: How are you connected to B.E.A.S.T Nation?

KJ: I am one of the founders of B.E.A.S.T Nation. It’s actually a family business. It started out as club promotions. That’s when we realized that in order to be successful in the music business, we had to be more hands-on. We started working in the streets and putting music out there and doing a lot of the work that most indie artist don’t do. An indie label was the next major move.

BK: When you say “family” do you mean actual family or close friends that serve as family?

KJ: Yea, my familly. we’re all from North Carolina. We got people out here that rock with us heavy. Me, Mayne, and O are blood cousins.

521640_373667916065139_584184949_n

BK: How did you guys come up with the name B.E.A.S.T Nation

KJ: B.E.A.S.T Nation is  actually an acronym for: Black Entrepreneurs Always Stand Tall. That’s always been the motto that we have lived by. That’s how we carry ourselves. B.E.A.S.T Nation is more than just a name, it’s a lifestyle.

BK: Over the last decade we have seen the trend of more artist buckin’ against the machine and opting to go Independent vs. Major. Why did you decide to go indie and would you ever consider going major?

KJ: I can’t say that I wouldn’t go major. I want to go major. They just gotta come with the MAJOR numbers. I’m not going to go for just anything. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t just do this for money so you’d really have to convince me on this. This is my passion. I will do this regardless. I put the time, effort, and funds into this so, if I do decide to let you in on that or let your major organization in on that, we have to be talking the right numbers.

BK: Growing up, when was your first talent competition?

KJ:  I was probably 15 years old. I was in High school (W. G. Enloe High School Raleigh, NC). It was a variety show. My homeboys and I performed a song that we wrote back at the time. We won 2nd place.

BK: Who were your musical influences?

KJ: Pac and Master P. My mother used to take all of my Tupac CD’s and give them to my dad. She used to throw away my Master P CD’s. She didn’t want me listening to it.

BK: Wow, how did your mother react when she found out that you decided to seriously pursue music?

KJ: When she found out that I wanted to do music, she wasn’t really surprised at that. She was surprised  that I was really good at it. She actually did music herself.

BK: So Mom Dukes is supportive now?

KJ: Very supportive

BK: So you’re majoring in broadcasting. Explain the relationship between your major and your hustle.

KJ: The similarities…. Basically what I have been going to school for is what I plan to be doing in the music industry, which is broadcast myself through the airwaves. Whether that’s through music or Spoken word. Being on-air is how I plan to get my story out there. Going to school was the best move that I could have made for the simple fact that I got my education and a degree. Jobs are opening up in that field.

king1BK: What was your upbringing like?

KJ: My upbringing was good as hell. My childhood was GREAT! I got to travel. I was born in Germany, lived in Florida, so I was right at the beach. Ft. Lauderdale, Miami… I have family all up through there. It was cool. There was always good weather, good vibes, and good food. Then, I went to North Carolina: the country. Everybody was cool. It’s always been a journey that never stops. I just keep going to different places, meeting new people. I enjoy it. Don’t get me wrong, everyone has problems. Everyone goes through things. You just have to learn to be strong and fight through certain situations. Now, I haven’t always stayed in the suburbs. We stayed in the hood too. I choose not to rap about living in the hood and seeing drugs in every song. I plan on making “feel good music”: music that makes people feel good about themselves. When I write, that’s what I’m thinking in my mind. If I am going to talk about someone in the hood or someone that’s homeless, how can I make them feel good about themselves and want to do better. Let’s not glorify all of the negativity because someone else was successful off of doing that. Don’t get me wrong, everyone that lives in the hood or sells dope knows someone in the suburbs. It’s 2013….

 

BK: At the end of the day, what do you want people to take from King Jamez as an artist?

KJ: I want people to know that you can be YOU. You don’t need to flex or make up a character or gimmick to be successful in the music industry. Talk about what you know. Be who you are and see what happens. Be different. You don’t have to do what everyone else is doing .

BK: Where is your fan-base mainly concentrated?

KJ: My major following is in the Southeast. North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, etc. My fan-base overseas is growing as well. My overseas fans hit me up all the time faithfully. I mean, DIE-HARD fans… They’ll hit me up saying, “We need more music” or ” I like this, I like that, Keep doing what you’re doing”.

BK: Have you ever caught the attention of a mainstream label?

KJ: My senior year of High School, I caught the attention of Warner Bros. It was cool. They wanted to hear my material. They checked out what I was doing. Big Daddy Kane was in the building. I got to meet him. It was great. I was 17.

BK: So, they were interested in signing you?

KJ: Yes

BK: What happened with that?

KJ: They went through my material. At the time, they liked it but they told me, I wasn’t quite where I needed to be. I needed a little more time in the game. I agree. The quality of what I was putting out then wasn’t quite there. I was recording everything in my bedroom.

BK: Wow, you got their attention though.

KJ: Hell yea, it was them bars and catchy a** hooks. I was doing my thing really heavy on Myspace. S/O to Myspace.

BK: For 2013 what all can we expect from King Jamez?

KJ: We’re about to take off. We’re out of there when I say, “take off” I mean take over the US region by region. Eventually the campaign will hit harder overseas. I’m about to be doing some more traveling. I’m going HAMM on that passport. We’re gonna put out more dope music and we’re going to get a dope response because I know the people are going to rock with it.
