Loonie Babie - "Drill" (Remix) ft. King Von

Proving that Milwaukee, Wisconsin is way more than beer, cheese and the Green Bay Packers, versatile rapper Looney Babie delivers his new single “Drill” featuring recently slain Chicago rapper and OTF member King Von. 
While the preparation for his “Drill” single featuring King Von has been months in the making with music videos and more, nothing could have prepared Looney Babie for the untimely murder of King Von last week. In honor of his slain OTF friend and fellow Midwest rapper, Looney Babie decided to push forward with the release of “Drill” to give King Von fans something positive during these trying times. 
“Von was a smooth dude both times I met him. We both street ni**as, we both beat homicide cases so this Drill song was perfect for us. It’s f*cked up how things went and I send my condolences to his family and friends, but I hope this song brings some light to his family and fans. King Von went crazy on that one!” Looney Babie said. 
“I ain’t gonna lie this is one of my best mixtapes and its hosted by Drumma Boy who did all the sh*t with T.I., Jeezy and everyone else. I got beats from him on there, we got a couple of hits. I’m trying to get Rod Wave and Chief Keef on there but I got Peezy from Detroit part of Team Eastside, TEC from Baton Rouge, King Von. In my city it’s hard to make it out of here and it’s all about who you know and what your budget is. Rico Love, K-Camp are from here but most people don’t know that.” 
While people are familiar with all of the violence and crime in Chicago, Looney Babie is telling stories that show that Milwaukee is far from the sleepy Midwest town that people imagine it to be. 
“Chicago is like 4 times bigger than Milwaukee, but our city is just the same, it’s just little. We’re just two hours apart so it’s a mini-Chicago. When niggas get ran out of Chicago they come up there. If they don’t know nobody over here they think it’s a white lil hick town, but they soon realize, this ain’t that,” Looney Babie said. “When I used to go to other cities, they would say there ain’t no Black people up here but it’s def not what people think.” 
Escaping incarceration after beating a homicide charge in 2012, Looney Babie earned his name after gaining a reputation in jail for fighting and going crazy after finding out his mother died just 12 days before his birthday. He soon became known in his town for beating a murder charge and going “looney” while in county jail for two years. 
“I was just in there going crazy, a lot of fighting and stuff like that. One day I called home and told them they had named me that in jail and so it stuck and it was my name from then on,” Looney Babie said. “Right now I don’t like this shit though, from the police to the streets. I’m most definitely living all this, I spent two years in the county jail, but that shit gave me high blood pressure and I almost died in there. I spit my life on these tracks, I got a lot of shit coming, I recorded over 1000 songs so I’m just mixing them in and picking the best songs. You gonna see my growth in my music with everything that’s coming out, it’s all about me and my life or what I’ve seen my niggas go through. I’m just gonna spit my life and you either gonna like it or not.”

CWBY - "Trap Star"

Today CWBY releases his new single "Trap Star" a high energy and multi-genre spanning track that ties in the worlds of Country Rock music and Hip-Hop under one roof. 

Raised in Florida and first getting his start when he was 19 as a promoter at an EDM club, the now California residing rapper/singer CWBY has grown tremendously since his early years in music expanding from promoting to being an artist himself. 

"My first experience with music was when I was 19 and working as a promoter in a big EDM club in Tampa and the DJ asked if I wanted to be an MC/ Hype man for him. I fell in love with being on stage and walking around helping hype everyone throughout the night," CWBY said.

While CWBY's new single "Trap Star" relates to the world of the trap, the new single also has undertones of love and relationships that make this song something everyone can relate to on a personal level.  CWBY first entered the music world as a rapper, but before ever releasing a song, he discovered he had some talent as a singer as well. He quickly changed his style, combining the two forms of vocal delivery to further his musical outreach. Experimenting with various sounds and musical melodies, CWBY’s new musical flavor is rapidly catching speed across the country.

"This first single is kind of a love song mixed with a little bit of my personality as well. If you listen to the intro I am talking about basically every relationship I have been in or tried to enter. I love being with someone and being in love, but I tend to push them away because of my lifestyle that is always moving and busy," CWBY said. 

Venturing into a full blown cannabis business in addition to his music, CWBY lives a fast paced life that doesn't leave much room for relationships.

"The hook is telling the audience why I can't be with them. I live a fast paced life when it comes to business and music. I barely have time for myself let alone a relationship. I am completely independent and trying to figure out this industry by myself and also own a successful company and brand. Between the two I am always working and stressed out, but when I have free time I prefer to be alone and working on small, but important things like vocal lessons, piano lessons, fitness and Spanish lessons," he added. 

Produced by "Plantez" who is the same DJ who gave him his first gig as a hype man, CWBY lights up the screen in the O Soloman directed video leaving fans hopeful for more content in the future. 

In the up and coming months, he plans to release more tracks, pushing him closer towards his dreams and to becoming the next Billboard charting artist.

"In the near future I want to be performing at the highest level on the biggest stages. The idea of having thousands of people singing along to a song I wrote in my kitchen gives me goosebumps. To share that moment with them would be incredible. I truly believe I can get there too. It's my goal to inspire people who just want to be masters of their destiny whether that's being an entrepreneur, an artist, or just to make a better life for yourself and those around you. I’ve been through a lot. Heart breaks, I've been screwed over countless times, and just working hard, doing good business, being a man of your word and staying loyal to people, it'll get you there."

Xay Capisce - "Shottas" Ft. Boosie

 Recently Alabama rapper Xay Capisce re-released his single titled, "Shottas," taken from his project ON GOD 2 that debuted in 2019.  

After taking some time off music to sort out some family issues, Xay Capisce is back in action for a collaboration with Lil Boosie that features a music video for the fans. 

"I coined myself the #SlumGod" Xay Capisce said. "I didn’t focus on radio before but now that the people are focused on me, they need to see and hear me all over, so I’m looking to be on most of your local stations really soon! We have constant spin on satellite radio and it's getting stronger."

Bred in a small Southern town that loves Southern Trap and what he calls "hustle music," Xay Capisce says trap is the most listened to music in his small town that's roughly 90 minutes away from Atlanta and just over the state line. 

"I came up listening to Boosie and so it was only right we do a record together. And Shottas being one of my favorite movies, I made the song and visual as relative to the movie as possible," Xay said. 

The track was produced by Beats The God and the music video was directed by Heatwave Global making sure this was a video the fans could appreciate for years to come. The Capisce LP will include production from GRAMMY Award nominated Priority Beats, 808Mafia, Cicero, BeatZ Da God and Arman to name a few. 

"They did great camera work for this video, this record is big for me because it's off my last project titled ON GOD 2 that did really well, so we had to re-release this track with Boosie as a single even though the new album is on the way - it is big for me." Xay Capisce said. "The next few months is all consistency!! We have my next 2 records dropping which are titled DEAR MR.46 (WE THE PEOPLE) which is a very politically motivated and charged record that is addressing the injustices and oppressions we face on a daily basis and what I have been facing since a youth born and raised in the heart of the south Alabama. We also have a club record that’s dropping at almost the same time titled RUN IT which is a heavy bass laden and uptempo track that makes you feel like a boss and running shit in whatever you do! So we working! My team keeps me busy!"

After fighting for his life in the judicial system for almost a decade, Xay Capisce has got a lot to say.

"I've been home barely 3 years so I want them to tap into my story and relate, so they can get an idea of exactly who they listening to," Xay Capisce explained.

With a radio promo run on the East Coast and then off to the Midwest and doubling back to the South before heading out west Xay Capisce is a busy artist with plans to reach out and meet the fans across the world including in NYC where he connected with Smit BDM and industry insider and dot connector who helped him earn Shade45 airplay.

"My mission is to let all the hustlers and kings know that it's possible to get out the slums doing something that you truly believe in!!! And the slums believed in you enough to be king! So now I’m transferring that same energy to the game. Myself and Drumma boy have an album coming titled “ALAMEMPHIS” to symbolize the union between Alabama and Memphis and what’s coming out of that! 

Radeem - "Muddy Waters"

Today Houston bred rapper Radeem releases his new single "Muddy Waters" which is currently spinning on radio in New York on HOT 97 and on Sirius/XM's Shade 45. 

Recalling memories of family and fun and making music as early as 16 years old, Radeem describes Houston as a city that he hopes to inspire and bring awareness to the different obstacles that many of people face. 

"Whether it's a cup of promethazine syrup or it's fear of breaking away from a toxic environment, it's very possible to make it across your Muddy Waters," Radeem said. 

Gearing up for a big Halloween performance along with Lil Boosie, MoneyBaggYo and YellaBeezy, Radeem knows that this new single is perfect for the Texas scene.  

"Today's Texas music scene is still striving with artists like Dallas’ Yella Beezy and Houston legends Z-Ro and Slim Thug still making relevant and good music. Together with a new wave of Houston rappers like Sauce Walka, Maxo Kream, Meg the Stallion, and Travis Scott, Texas culture is still one of the biggest influencers in Hip-Hop today," he said. 

While COVID has the world shut down, Radeem has no plans of slowing down adding a lot of recording and promoting to the agenda along with his Halloween show and work with New York industry insider Smit BDM.

"Me and the team plan to keep running the numbers up on Muddy Waters while campaigning the current singles until we create a heavy demand for a project. We also plan to keep recording new material to have enough to choose from in the mission control room," Radeem said.
