I would like to introduce you to Hip Hop artist Brittney Carter from Chicago. Last Saturday she won the T.D.E. contest to open up for Jay Rock and Reason on The Big Redemption Tour stop in Chicago and performed on that Sunday.
During her set at that show she performed her newest release “Paper Crowns” Prod. By @Mike Jones
On “Paper Crowns” Brittney shares that she is standing solid on her path during this journey in the music business with lines like:
” … can’t take my soul/no demon can replicate and no darkness can penetrate/I been/set apart for a reason, I’m bout to sprout it’s my season/I took a different route, it took awhile I’m in here now … “
I feel that she is poised to be a major force in the music business. In a capsule to me she is a powerful lyricist on tracks with heartfelt & thought provoking content that is woven with effortless and various flows and textures. It’s a beautiful combination she offers as an artist.
Brittney is currently working on her debut EP and I’m looking forward to seeing her career flourish. Brittney Carter is a name in Hip Hop to remember!!!

Dre Izaya is back with his lastest #blueSUNDAY series release “O.D.” Produced by himself & co-produced by the talented Just Disrupt
Dre Izaya, is extremely clever with his content, he flows effortlessly on tracks and as I continue to surf his catalog, he continues to impress as an MC as one my new favorites.
Dre knows he’s destined for greatness with lines like this: ” … me I been I patiently waiting for a time like this/your fans ain’t gotta like it but mines like this/who gotta mind like this/I can name a few but they only greats/that’s why I rhyme like this/you can’t even top my worse work/so stop cryin bouta list/punchlines ain’t punchin thru/u gona have to put iron on ur fist… ”
I am truly excited to see this young mc’s progression and career take off, I feel strong to say that he will be a major artist sooner than later. Dre Izaya is a name to remember!!!
As soon as this track comes on, it gave me an anthem feel with heavy bass and running hi hats that keep the energy thru out the song then the powerful hook comes on and Rosiee oozes so much confidence while revealing her vulnerability:
” … Look, my only competition, is myself/ trying take care of my mental health, put your face on like it’s no big deal/wipe your eyes with a couple dollar bills/I sit and overthink til it kills/trying smoke my brain away no more feels/trying level up each day trying to heal/can’t tell apart the fake from the real … “
“No Competition” is a layered with confidence from Roisee from the flow to the content and you can tell she has funny side to her as she spits “anybody that competes, take a shot of bleach”, which I thought was pretty funny but if you ever need a song to feel uplifted and turnt up at the same time then this would be up your alley!!!
I just found out about her today roaming on Soundcloud and she has nice blend of RnB/Rock/Alternative vibe songs with her rapping flows, I really like what I heard from Roisee and look forward to seeing her progress. In the meantime, I feel she has a legit banger on her hands with “No Competition”, I do wish she would have brought that hook back one more time at the end but regardless, you can play this at any kick back, in the club, jamming in the car with friends and you’ll keep the energy going, this jawn goes hard!!!!
On my journey to continue to know who Brittney Carter is as an artist, I came across this gem that dropped a lil over a year ago by Bishop K.I.D.D. called “Voyage” which she is featured on and as Brittney states on her soundcloud page that this song is “a homage to the greats before us, the music, words and melodies that will forever remain with us.” Voyage takes you into the mind of two artists who show their appreciation for Hip Hop artists before them and they skillfully deliver their gratitude.
D.B. DAT BOI teams up with Drilla, who is featured and produces “Cloud Surfin’ (Again) which is a track off his debut E.P. entitled Cloud Surfa Music.
D.B. & Drilla partned up with one of the fastest growing and buzzworthy label in North Central Florida, Go Legit Entertainment which has etched their name into the music scene as force to be reckoned with in the music business.
“Cloud Surfin’ (Again) is a dope vibe for a kick back, chill night or just ridin. D.B. and Drilla delivers a jam that will be in rotation during rotations lol … Cloud Surf Away!!!
Dre Izaya is 17yrs old and hails from Chicago, he has created a plan of dropping songs at the beginning of the week on what he calls #blueSUNDAY. Dre delivers impeccable flows and flawless performances in his verses with the ability to drop layers of knowledge and share the perspective of a teenager with a conscious and superior confidence as an MC. This song “Legit” was one of the recent offerings and is self produced. “Legit” is a display of lyrical ability of a hungry MC with bars that are driven by self awareness, his environment and he lets the world know what he feels, that he is one of the top 5 MCs in Hip Hop. I can definitely see why he feels that way by just listening to these songs from this teenager with this much versatility, content and showcasing his pure love for hip hop as an MC and not following the model of what’s trendy as a rapper in this current climate. Stay tuned and keep Dre Izaya on your mental because I got a great feeling, he’ll be on a major level sooner than later. Dre Izaya definitely gets my co-sign, even though he doesn’t need it from anyone as he states: “… I don’t need no validation, b**** I know I’m Legit … “
Steelo I.B. drops “Lavender” a track produced by Skelly G. and continues to showcase his lyrical prowness layered with gems as usual on his tracks such as lines like:
“… I be reaching for the sun/while I be reaching for the blunt/they want me reaching for the sky/while they reaching for the gun/ol young black man, you ain’t never stood a chance/steady tryin’ to advance/ for the Benjamins and Grants/but my Poppa taught me well/I make a Heaven out of Hell/ I pray I never go to jail … “
Steelo I.B. is an artist to keep an eye out for, if you haven’t been familiar with this MC from St. Croix, Virgin Islands then you can also check out his last project called The Practice which showcases Steelo flowing over industry beats with his own flavor.
There is a team brewing in the midwest set to make headwaves in the music business, Loop Theory, a Artist and Managment Agency out of Chicago has roster of talented MCs and Producers. We were gifted a collaboration “The Devil’s Curiosity” from Navarro, Dre Izaya and Brittney Carter with production from Disrupt and Heir Porter.
I’ll simply say that is one of the best songs I’ve heard this year, the lyricism, the content, the production and the overall feel gave me a feeling of witnessing something great in the making with these talents
I’m excited to see what the future holds for this team.
Audrey Jackson recently performed at Homemadesoul Music‘s ‘Girls Night Out’ show during the East Coast Music Conference and she rocked the stage with a set that was soulful and energetic!!! Audrey is steady building a name for herself in the music business with countless performances on the East Coast, strong songs, amazing vocals that touch your soul and resilent work ethic. Her, It’s All Music The Movement Team that she is apart of headed by Music Executive Faihym Felder is positioning her to have a breakout year!!!

Audrey creates a feel good song to vibe with after a long day at work and having some drinks with her girls and enjoying the vibes!!! Philly should be proud of this blossoming star and I’m confident Audrey will keep that string of impactful R&B artists coming out of the city alive!!! – Zech Wilson
