Lil Mikey TMB Drops 'Truth Be Told' Mixtape Hosted By DJ Scream! [Stream]

https://www.spinrilla.com/mixtapes/lil-mikey-tmb-truth-be-told

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/truth-be-told/1342837084

Lil Mikey TMB, short for The Money Boy, is an artist from East Oakland, California born and raised on 96 and Cherry St. to be exact. Music has always been in Mikey’s DNA as his uncle Money-B was a part of the legendary funk and rap group, Digital Underground. 

10 years ago, Lil Mikey wouldn’t have believed that he would have a career in music as he was heavily involved in the street life, selling dope and living recklessly. After losing close friends, being shot a total of 5 times on 3 different occasions by the age of 23, and waking up from a coma after 3 weeks, Lil Mikey realized it was time to change and relocated to Vegas. 

While in Vegas, Lil Mikey reconnected with his current management and longtime acquaintance, Champagne Elite Music Group who flew Mikey to Miami to be around his label at the time, Foreign Gang. Mikey observed the priority artists and the lifestyle. He survived a rigorous year long artist development and perfected the art of hyping a crowd, similar to Tupac and Digital Underground. 

Foreign Gang soon demised but Lil Mikey furthered his relationship with Champagne Elite Music Group as they shared the same vision. There was no turning back to the streets or prison and Lil Mikey credits Lil Wayne and the Hot Boyz as his main influences. Mikey is hoping to create a lasting legacy and motivate young people who can identify with him to get money live better and think outside of the world they live. 

Lil Mikey released his first official single “Crack Spot” in 2016 which caught the attention of Hoodrich’s, DJ Scream. DJ Scream later connected Mikey with 21 Savage and Hoodrich Pablo Juan who both appeared on his debut mixtape, ‘Eastside Nino’. 

‘Eastside Nino’ was released 2016 hosted by DJ Scream and featured Trouble, Nef the Pharaoh, Mr Fab, Mishon, and Philthy Rich. 

Lil Mikey has since appeared on major publications such as Sway In The Morning, VLAD TV,  ThisIs50 and The Progress Report and is gearing up for the release of his upcoming mixtape, ‘Truth Be Told’ which will be hosted by DJ Scream. The project is set to release February 16th and will feature a verse from Tracy T and melodies from Jasmin Cadavid.

Hip Hop has always been present in Made Man’s life, drawing

Blue Face Bally Reveals Artwork For 'Blue Face Trip' EP Executively Produced By Dun Deal & Boominati

BlueFaceBally is a 19 year old artist from East Atlanta, GA. Music has always been the heart of the household as both of his parents hail from New York and his mother is an active poet, while his father formerly rapped. Bally grew up listening to East Coast acts such as the Fugees, Mobb Deep, and A Tribe Called Quest and was eventually introduced to other aspects of Hip Hop. 

Bally recorded his first song over 2 years ago and decided to pursue a career as a musician after the ample responses he received from strangers online. The positive feedback triggered Bally to get more musically inclined and study the craft more in depth, elevating his creativity.

His sound is melodic and airy and Bally is currently signed to his mentor and hit producer, Dun Deal and his label, 4NXChange Records. Bally’s debut project, ‘Blue Face Trip’ is due out later this month and will feature production from Dun Deal, Chopsquad DJ & Metro Boomin’s, Boominati. Bally explains that the project will take fans on a trippy hallucination through his mind and aims to make people feel happy and confident through his music. 

“Froze” and “Nascar” are the first singles from the project and Bally will be releasing exclusive merchandise the week of the release.

Born Drops Explosive New Single "Coolio"

http://smarturl.it/BornCoolio

Born is a Hip Hop recording artist from Boston, Massachusetts.

He took a liking to music at the age of 11 after watching his older brothers freestyle and beat battle in the project hallways. He soon built up the courage to join in and became recognized as the youngest, most lyrical MC in the neighborhood. 

Dominican and African American descent, Born grew accustomed to all likes of music such as Jazz, Reggaeton, Rap, Soul, and R&B, all of which has influenced his sound.

In 2012, Born joined forces with fellow Boston artist, G Dot to release a duo project, Fam Radio Vol. 1 which caught the attention of Hip Hop legend, Edo G who later served as a mentor for Born.

In the years to follow, Born released his first music video and 2 more collab mixtapes with G Dot, Fam Radio VOL. 2 & Audible Cons VOL. 1. Both projects became instant classics worldwide, prompting them to release 2 albums, Confidence Presents & Oyoshe Presents. The duo toured worldwide and established global recognition in countries like Chile, Berlin, and Naples.

Born later released his solo project, Born Flexin, which earned him over a million views for his music videos for singles, “Haters” & “Making Tracks”. 

Born’s second solo mixtape, Nasa released Christmas 2016 and featured a verse from Hip Hop veteran, Masta Ace. 

In 2017, Born collaborated with 1/3 Migos, Quavo for “Hot Topic” which is produced by Dun Deal. “Hot Topic” has over 2 million combined streams and the official music video was shot in the Dominican Republic and has over 3 million views on Youtube and over 4 million views on Worldstar. 

Born’s steady ascent continues with the recent release of “Coolio”. 

“Coolio” proves without question that Born (of acclaimed duo G.Dot & Born) is coming into his own not just as an emcee but as a songwriter. That’s especially apparent on the hook, which turns into the type of ear worm that will bang no matter where it’s heard—clubs, car systems, live shows, wherever. 

More than just an incredibly catchy single with sing-along lyrics, “Coolio” serves as a proud f-ck-you anthem for anyone who’s been scorned by an ex. Born uses his fluid delivery to send a strongly worded kiss-off to a woman he thought would be his wife. It all makes for a track that bangs just as much as it conveys real emotion, once again proving that Born cares just as much as lyricism as he does making massive hits.

“Coolio” is now available for stream and download through all major digital retailers, via Rich & Fly Records. Stay tuned for the visuals, coming soon!
