Upcoming album ‘Polemic’ combines Louis Heaton’s unique sound with deep well of hip-hop knowledge
BROOKLYN, NY – When it comes to Louis Heaton’s music, there’s nothing off limits. His no-holds-barred approach is something he’s banked his music career on for nearly two decades, and it’s that unique blend of passion and perfection that has made him a hit with so many fans over the years.
Those fans are in for a treat with his new album, “Polemic,” which is set to drop sometime this summer. The 13 tracks on the project showcase Heaton’s amazing lyricism and musical substance – something he said is sorely lacking in a lot of today’s song selections. But with years of knowledge and experience deep within the culture of hip-hop, Heaton said he’s seen the ups and downs and has a body of work that he brings to bear with this album in ways that will influence and educate people all over the world.
“I just want a no-holds-barred type of approach because I can address any topic and talk about anything,” he said. “I make good music filled with any kind of substantial content you can think of. I can make a good love song, or a good political song, or a good club song. I can’t be placed in a box, and I’m not afraid to start drama.”
A great example of that approach can be found with the single “Trap Music NYC.” It is a diss track to all New Yorkers who make trap music. Heaton said they are the only ones who lost their original sound just because they are no longer #1.
He said while living in California for eight years, he was being bombarded with music executive after music executive insisting that certain regions – such as the West Coast – should always sound like specific things. Trap music, for instance, is a unique sound from Atlanta that many people have told him only belongs in a deep-South type of vibe and he agrees. But with “Trap Music NYC,” Heaton is attempting to reinvigorate his New York City peers and break past those pre-conceived notions and introduce something new and exciting.
Other hot singles from the album include “Ring Around,” which is a statement piece that explores who Heaton is as an artist, and “Get High,” which is made specifically for the cannabis community and will drop on 4/20. “Get High” features notorious rapper Ruste Juxx, who has been established with Boot Camp Clik and helped Heltah Skeltah.
In addition to his music, Heaton is also an entrepreneur and entertainment businessman. He founded a company called Underverse LLC, which offers a full line of apparel – including shirts, hoodies, sweat suits and more – and offers mentorship opportunities for up-and-coming young artists.
“There’s this thing in a lot of places in New York where if you’re a new artist you have to pay to play,” Heaton said. “We don’t charge artists to perform at our showcases. Most showcases charge artists to perform. We offer you the opportunity to join our network called UV Social with only $5/monthly fee. The whole concept of Underverse is to nurture up-and-coming artists from the underground. All the music from there is organic and pure, and we want to offer a place where those artists don’t ever have to worry about a record company watering down their versions of their songs. We give them a platform to get exposure that can hopefully lead to a recording deal.”
Heaton said he’s glad to use the bachelor’s degree in music business that he got from Five Towns College and combine that with his years of experience that have given him an inside education on all things having to do with the entertainment industry.

New single ‘Business is Business’ highlights 
Dank Luciano’s one-of-a-kind sound and style
AIKEN, SC – Isaiah Sharief Russell, known professionally as Dank Luciano, is a U.S.-based rapper and songwriter from Aiken, South Carolina, who’s approach to hip-hop is turning heads all along the East Coast.
Born in Far Rockaway, New York, but raised in South Carolina, this up-and-coming artist has been chasing his dream to be an influential musician since the age of 15. His first single, “Hibachi,” gained recognition throughout the streets and brought him to the attention of XRO Studios. Following the success of that single, he’s released the follow-up song “Business is Business” under the XRO Studios label.
“It’s a song that was kind of inspired by Biggie Small’s ’10 Crack Commandments,’” he said. “It’s about how you conduct business in your town, or when you’re serving time somewhere, or whatever you’re doing. It’s about the struggle of having to sell dope or do whatever you have to do to make money, and so if you’re gonna do it then this is how you do it. I think of it as the blueprint or the handbook of the trap house. It’s a definite anywhere song that you can play in the club, or on the radio, or just to kick back to at a cookout with the neighborhood. And it has an upbeat tempo that makes you constantly nod your head.”
Dank said “Business is Business” is a great example of the kind of music he hopes to be known for throughout his career. He raps about the struggle and poverty, because that’s his reality. He raps about what inspires him about life, and makes music that he said “tells the story of my people.”
“I tell the story of the street, the story of the street, the story of poverty,” he said. “You might be someone who has been on welfare or has food stamps, but you don’t want to talk about it because you’re embarrassed. I come in as the voice of the people. I want to be known as the one who told the story for the people the whole time. I want my legacy to be like the one who took a similar situation that someone else is in and turned into something prosperous.”
Dank said part of what makes fans love his unique sound is the “weird harmony” that he accompanies with his raps. He has some melodic music that he learned how to perfect while he spent time in prison, and he loves to employ that sound in surprising ways throughout his songwriting.
“My sound is one that isn’t like any other,” he said. “I have a unique sound and unique way of telling my side of the story. The way I say things is totally different than the way you say things. My point of view and my style separate me from anyone else in the game because of the way I think and the way I choose to express the way I think. I also want to be known as the dude who touched every genre.”
In addition to the release of “Business is Business,” Dank Luciano is working on an EP that’s part of an artist collective under the XRO Studios label. He said the EP is slated to drop sometime this summer.

Money Motivator uses natural talent with lyricism 
to inspire people to pursue a higher lifestyle
HOUSTON, TX – Money Motivator isn’t your typical street-raised rapper. He’s not a hard-core “dope boy,” and he has embraced a lifestyle of violence and drugs like so many others from the streets claim to do. He makes music for the streets, and was raised from the midst of that difficult lifestyle, but he paid attention to the real OGs and drug dealers from the generation before him, and he took their lessons to heart.
“I learned from them when they said to stay away from it,” he said, nodding to some of the legends he has always loved listening to, such as Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Geto Boys, T.I., Ice Cube and more. “Most rappers come from the streets nowadays, or say they come from it, and do things that they regret. I’m not this guy. I’m just a guy who’s gonna make songs that make you want to dance. I can make you relate to what I’m talking about without encouraging you to live that bad lifestyle. I’m gonna motivate you to get money and raise a family and do all the things to keep you out of that lifestyle – all of the same things that the generation before me said that motivated me to stay out of that lifestyle. I’m gonna dance my ass off while still motivating others, because music gives me peace. I use music as therapy, and I just want to get my music out to give others peace, too.”
Toward that end, Money Motivator has released his first EP, a six-song project called “Past Transactions.” As a proud member of the cannabis community, Money Motivator said many of his songs refer to that and will explore stories born from moments influenced by weed. But more than that, the songs talks about the things from his past that have molded him into the artist he is today. His father was an artist with Rap-A-Lot Records and he was on Willie D’s album “Play Wit’cha Momma”. The track is called “U Got Homeboys, We Got Homeboys”. This gave him an early education on the ins and outs of the music industry. But the industry destroyed his father, and he turned to drugs for a release from that pain. Instead of following in his father’s footsteps, Money Motivator used all the pain he saw in his father and put it into his own poetry, spoken word and eventually music.
“I could always rhyme and I always had a vocabulary that was different, so I tended to stand out,” he said. “But I never wanted to be the center of attention because I was so worried it would destroy me like it did my father. But at parties when people would kick back and just have fun with a freestyle circle or something, any time I would jump in people would tell me that sound and style is what they’re missing – true lyrics. So I kind of sat back and realized it was a shame that I didn’t use my lyrical ability. It’s crazy to be good at it and not do it. So I just started doing it, and then someone invested in me and things have taken off.”
As “Past Transactions” gains momentum and is starting to see some major success, Money Motivator said he’s already hard at work on follow-up projects. He’s hoping to capture the same magic that he grabbed with his single “Smoker Joker,” which is the talk of the South right now. He has a mixtape in the works, which he plans to call “Past Transactions 1.5,” and then will follow that up with another EP later this year called “Past Transactions 2.”

Money Dron makes major life change and pours passion into music
SYRACUSE, NY – When Adronnice Collins was released from prison in 2017, he promised himself he was never going back. In-and-out of New York State’s penitentiary for most of his young life for crimes associated with drugs and violence, he knew that if he didn’t make a major change, his life would never get better.
And so he turned to music. He adopted the stage name Money Dron and started working on hard on developing a unique sound and style that would help him to stand out in a crowded music industry. In April 201, he released his debut album “Hustlers Ambition” and in the year since, he’s seen a steady increase of support and fan-following.
“It’s an album that’s a mixture of hip-hop and club songs,” he said. “It’s not an underground, hard-core album. It has a more up-to-date feel with the industry. It has rap, but it also has strip club songs and R&B songs on there. And the songs talk more about of my upbringing than anything else, as well as stories and experiences from my life and the things that led me to jail for hustling and things of that nature on the streets.”
The upcoming mixtape is called “Bangers.” It’s made for the streets and is a term well-known by people living and working on the streets.
“’Bangers’ is a word we use in my city for something good,” he said. “If something is dope or hot, that’s a Banger. This mixtape in and of itself is a Banger. It’s something you can ride around to or play back over and over because it gets you hyped.”
His single “Run it Up” Is a club song that works perfect for parties and has become so popular in the year since its release that it’s been spun on some shows in Canada and California, and is up for consideration with Ride Videos. At the end of the day, he said it’s a song that helps showcase that unique sound and style he’s been working so hard on for so long, and which he hopes will carve out a niche for him within the industry.
“My versatility really sets me apart from other artists,” he said. “I don’t sound like anybody else. I’ve been recording since I was 17 or 18 years old, though I never really took it serious. But after this last time in prison, I knew I had to do something serious. I’m tired of going back and forth to prison. I have to switch things up. This is more my grind and something I believe in. I don’t want to be a statistic and get caught up and do a long time in prison. And if I stick with this lifestyle, that’s what will happen. I got kids and I gotta be out here for them, and music is something I believe in. I have a story to tell and experiences I’ve been through, and music will be the thing that will save me from a lot of stuff I could be in.”

Yung Boi Fresh overcomes life-and-death situation by launching new EP and music label
LAS VEGAS, NV – Dec. 28, 2015 was a life-changing moment for Courvoisier Carson.
Known professionally as Yung Boi Fresh, this young artist from the Bay Area of California was the victim of a violent shooting in San Francisco. He lost seven pints of blood and was on life support. Doctors told his mother that he probably wouldn’t make it … but he survived against all odds.
The experience was a motivational moment in his life, and he knew that it was time for him to follow his dream to make meaningful, heart-felt music. But first, he took a vacation to Las Vegas. While there, he began to envision himself performing under the bright lights and realizing his dream in big ways. It was such a powerful vision that he chose to relocate to Las Vegas and quickly began to pursue a career in music. He created his company, Yungstar Entertainment, and completed his first EP “Cold Summer/Hot Winter,” which is set to drop on March 8.
“With this project, I’ve created a wave called trap soul,” Yung Boi Fresh said. “I came from the bottom and this EP is all from my heart. It’s me showing off my own pattern of music while telling you what I’ve been through and grown up around. My sound is unorthodox – that’s the best way to explain it. When I say trap soul, it’s like a New Orleans bounce with a Bay Area dance feel, with a little bit of Philly thrown in. I’m gassing the beat and putting my heart and soul and feeling into it.”
Yung Boi Fresh started getting into music at age 18. He and his younger brothers grew up around Bay Area legends like Uno and Lil B. But instead of following in their footsteps, Yung Boi knew he had to do something different to make a name for him. So he started building a fan-base instead of a name – hosting events and serving as an emcee for some of the biggest DJs along the West Coast. Eventually, people began to reach out to him to host gigs and his name began to take off.
Along the way, he has developed a sound and style that has become well-known throughout his area. He’s also known for being an artist who encourages others to enjoy life, have fun and just be who they are and stop worrying about what other people think.
“Stop trying to live your life for somebody,” he said. “Be that great person you created yourself to be. My family has been the support system for me going harder in the music. They’re a real inspiration to me. People like Mac Dre and Kilo and Mr. Fab and Laroo and Mindmotion and IAmSu – those people have been so supportive of my craft and helping me find my own lane. And I want to encourage other people that way, too.”
Yung Boi said he hopes to eventually land more artists under his label and to really branch out in other ways within the music and entertainment industry. Until then, he said he’s eager for his new EP to get out to more listeners. The first single, “One Time,” is already out and ready for people to enjoy. He describes it as an R&B soul vibe that serves as a statement piece to the world that this is who he is and this is the kind of music you can expect from him going forward.

Eyezlow Bo launches hot new EP ‘Space Mountain’ RACINE, WI – When people ask Desmond Crawford why he chose the stage name Eyezlow Bo, ...

Eyezlow Bo launches hot new EP ‘Space Mountain’
RACINE, WI – When people ask Desmond Crawford why he chose the stage name Eyezlow Bo, his answer always brings a smile to their face.
“I’m always ‘medicated,’ I guess,” he said. “And I’ve got a lot of smoke songs. When I started combining those things and doing what I do, I became Eyezlow Bo.”
Today, Eyezlow Bo is an up-and-coming artist from the Midwest whose Midwest sound is heavily influenced by the South. While growing up in Wisconsin and listening to Bone Thugs N Harmony and Twista, he was also bumping Three-Six Mafia and 8Ball. All of that combined with the musical influences his family brought to the table from their home town of Memphis, Tennessee. And that fusion has turned into the unique sound and style that he has become known for today … all of which is on full display with his new album, “Space Mountain.”
The nine-song album is all focused on his journey toward the top. It’s filled with good vibes, turn-up songs, and – true to his name and reputation – a lot of smoke songs. But more than anything it’s a project that lets people into his mind and explores stories and experiences from his life in ways that he hopes will connect with others.
“I think what sets me apart from a lot of others is my flow, my consistency and my work ethic,” he said. “I’ve been doing this since 1997 and I continue to invest in myself 20 years later. I’m trying to live this dream. I’m still here and I’m still consistent with my flow and I want to be known for my rapping ability. I kind of want to be like Wiz Khalifa or Cheech and Chong, but as more of a rapper. I’m not into mumble rap. I stay turnt up and keep the energy, but you gotta be able to rap too, when you’re doing that. And I do.”
The debut single from the new EP is a song called “Muscle.” He describes it as a “grind,” with lyrics that might at first be mistaken for a guy talking about drug addiction, but which are in truth, homage to the hustle that is his music. The very name of the song, he said, is an indication of the kind of work he’s willing to put in to get his music to the masses.
“I’m trying to hustle my music,” he said. “This is only the beginning. And with my new label, Cloudy Skiez Enterprize, I believe I have finally arrived.”
