Thursday, November 8th, 2018

He wanted to let his friend know that he was going to be there for him to the death and all he expected in return was that same love and loyalty. They wouldn’t have to worry about the haters and the naysayers because they were going to ride together. Life puts you on an emotional roller coaster and his music takes you on that journey. It’s something that everyone can relate to no matter where they are in their respective lives.

Though freshman standout Paxquiao may just be beginning his career in the music scene, he is exhibiting his ability to withstand pressure.

Paxquiao’s new Ice Starr produced single “Ride 2 Getha” features Derek De’Shon and proves he is ready to tackle the Atlanta nightclub music scene. The song depicts a particularly difficult time Paxquiao and one of his closest friends endured in their past. More importantly, it resonates with his fans and is a song to which any diehard friend can relate. It’s the new ride or die anthem. It is the first single from Paxquiao’s upcoming album, “Dodgin the Raindrops”.

Godsecho makes its mark on the world

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

“It’s happening! It’s happening and it’s just the beginning! It’s time for all God’s children to know the value he placed on all of our lives when he spoke us into existence!”

One look at the mesmerizing Godsecho logo and you’re taken in by its color and design. In fact, you know immediately that it’s way more than “just” a logo. Enter the world of Godsecho and you’ll find dope apparel, but more importantly, messages of inspiration that transcend many of our thought patterns. Apparel companies are born everyday, but not many are heaven-sent.

Godsecho is so much more than just a lifestyle brand – it’s a way of life. From its founder’s encouraging and often energy investing words to the influence it has on Godsecho clientele, you just know it’s been heaven sent!

The alluring Ms. Kyley Ringo

Founder Kyley Ringo has a myriad of life experiences that she uses to bring people closer to their maker, if not to help change their mindsets for the better. To say she’s full of positive, contagious energy is an understatement. Let us tell you, this lady is a living testament to how beautiful someone can be inside and out – we all can learn a thing or two from her courage!

We had such an AMAZING time yesterday!! Words can not express how grateful I am to all of my friends and family who came out and supported the Godsecho movement! I couldn’t have asked for more! God is good!! #wearegodsecho #godsecho #realfriendship #family #friends #love

A post shared by GODSECHO (@wearegodsecho) on Sep 23, 2018 at 3:50am PDT

We caught up with Ms. Ringo to learn a little more about her vision for Godsecho:

What inspired you to start your company?

KR: What inspired me to start my company was from a vision God gave to me one day after I repented for unknowingly dabbling in the satanic world. In 2015 I had gone through two or three years of trying to “live life without God so much”, per say. At the time, my life wasn’t going exactly the way I wanted it to go and I felt that God wasn’t moving fast enough in my life. So I started to dabble into the “New Age” world of crystals, sage, etc. in order to, in some way “help God out”. I was on YouTube one day and God dropped in my heart to do a search about crystals. I heard so many opinions about healing crystals, crystal energy and smudging, that I wanted to finally put my conscious at ease. So, I said a prayer and asked God to reveal everything that he wanted me to find during my search. I searched crystal healing as God instructed me to and I came upon a couple videos by Steven Bancarz named “Crystals: The Christian perspective” and “Proof the New Age is satanic.” That’s all it took for me! If anyone wants to know the history of New Age and the things that we are not knowledgeable about, please check these videos out! As I listened to these videos I immediately felt the love of God surrounding me and I fell on my face and repented for my lack of knowledge. I threw out maybe $2,000 or more worth of crystals, singing bowls, sage, etc. You name it – I threw it out! Maybe a few days later, God made me realize that something good came out of this entire process. I actually learned how to affirm myself. I had gotten into the routine of reciting affirmations out loud every morning and this actually helped me through my struggles with depression. I believe that it was the same day, I asked God how I can bring this to the world. I thought about it and thought about it and suddenly, God dropped in my heart to start a clothing apparel line and start with t-shirts. As I thought more and more about it, I realized that all t-shirts usually speak about the person who is wearing the shirt. So, God inspired me to create a shirt with affirmations on them to affirm the person who was reading the shirt.

How did you grow Godsecho?

KR: Almost 3 years later on July 2, 2018, I finally took the vision God gave to me seriously and officially became an LLC with a credit card I received the same week after “fixing my own credit” for two years.

Growing up, who influenced you the most?

KR: As a child, my daddy (on purpose) influenced me the most. My daddy owned his own business all of my life, before Hurricane Katrina took it in the flood of 2005. Before then, my daddy would work 12 to 16 hours a day, except for Sundays. My daddy, to this day, is the hardest working man I’ve ever known. He taught me about God, giving, love, hard work, honesty, and most of all, he taught me how to be dreamer or more like a visionary! He has always supported any dream I’ve ever had. He’s always taught me that with God, anything is possible.

How can Godsecho touch the masses?

KR: I believe that my brand will help everyday people because we never know what someone may be going through and God can/will use this as a tool to minister to someone who is suffering in silence. I know that I’ve suffered in silence for years and I can remember being in the lowest place of my life when I tried to kill myself by running my 2003 Ford mustang into a brick wall at full speed in the parking garage in the building I was living. The only thing that stopped me that day was seeing my daddy’s face and not wanting him to hurt because of what I was about to do. Also, hearing the voice of my therapist affirming me that I was smart, beautiful and not alone.

What role does spirituality play in your life and why is it so important?

KR: Spirituality plays a huge role in my life and it always has played an important role. Let me be clear, I am not speaking about religion at all. I am not religious. Religion is when you have to pray a certain way all the time or dress a certain way or do things in a certain manner to please man and not God. God is tired of religion. It is time to get back to praising him and not the person he may or may not be using to deliver his message to his people.

How does Godsecho transcend society’s norms?

KR: Godsecho transcends religion, denominations or walks of life and that’s why God inspired me to create the brand. It’s not only clothing but it’s a movement.

Where do you see the Godsecho brand in 2, 5 and even 10 years?

KR: In two years, I see the brand as a household name in the US. I see people all over wearing my shirts to spread love and encouragement to their fellow brothers and sisters of the human race. In five years, I see the brand being a household name in the U.S. and overseas, and its message being spread as a movement all over the world. I see the world spreading love and kindness everywhere they go. I also see the world having a greater conscious and concern for human life. In 10 years, I see the world not only knowing of God but actually knowing him and feeling worthy of having a relationship with him. I see the brand helping the world to understand that they do not have to know the Bible backwards and forward or have to be perfect for God to hear them.

Where can you be found on social media?

KR: On IG at @wearegodsecho and wearegodsecho on Facebook.

[NEW MUSIC] Da Foundation – “AMMO” ft Future | @Da_Foundation

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

Emerging Hip Hop Duo, Da Foundation just landed their first major feature with Multi-Platinum Recording Artist, Future. The new release, “Ammo” is raising many questions about the collaboration.

Da Foundation is a hip-hop/rap duo comprised of brothers – Mustaiin (“Mu Smoova”) and Malcolm (“Mile Casso”) Lawrence that formed in summer 2009. Mu considers himself a thinker, the quiet one with an uncanny militant streak that demands attention. Casso, on the other hand, is dynamic, active, and always ready for a challenge. But make no mistake – Casso is an amiable and approachable guy. The pair’s personalities complement each other brilliantly, creating a powerful energy that propels them toward success.

Smoova and Casso were drawn to the art of hip-hop, an enticing tableau of music, hustle, and freedom from debts and poverty. In a matter of months, and with the collaboration of various booking agencies, Da Foundation went from performing on open mic nights to winning showcases to headlining their shows. “We grind from a state of poverty, so we give you our all. The people should know we took no shorts and never considered ourselves too big for any opportunity,” says the duo. The release of “Alleyway to Broadway” encapsulated the hustle and hype that defines their musical journey They moved up the hip-hop charts with their award-winning single from the project, impacting radio with worldwide airplay and earning a spot on the Top 50 Independent Artists in the U.S.

In 2016, Da Foundation released the EP entitled “MoneyNevaSleeps” following the release with a self-funded promo tour of the same name. Despite their rapid rise in the music industry, the brothers remember that nothing came easy for them.

Dedication, faith, strength, and talent have formed the rungs of the ladder to success. But one thing is clear: Da Foundation doesn’t care about the fame. They want to spread their inspiration. Lastly, Da Foundation seems not to show any signs of slowing down, “This is just one of many to come.”

[NEW MUSIC] J-MANE – “PROOF” FT J-HOOD | @JMane_HT

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018
Hip-Hop Artist, J-Mane overcomes the adversities of “The Struggle”

J-Mane has seen many struggles throughout his life and desires change. Phillip Jermane Allen – also known as J-Mane, is an up and coming hip-hop artist out the underbelly of small rural West Virginia. Allen was born February 4th, 1988 in White Sulphur Spring to parents, Penny Allen and Jay Jones.

The term “music is the entry to the soul” sits with the young J-Mane. It wasn’t always his passion to still make music. When he was younger, he had another passion that he wanted to carry him to the road of success, football. He had dreams of making it pro and coming out of the struggle. The struggles became more of a reality when he got older.

In 2007, Allen’s world changed completely. His mother, Penny Allen, got sick and lost her fight. Young Allen is merely just coming out of high school at the age of 18, and he didn’t know what to think. Sadness, anger, many emotions were running through his head. During his emotional rollercoaster, he gained a DUI charge, and this was when his mindset changed his whole perspective. Phillip turned to football and envisioned success as his way to make his momma proud. In 2015, his dreams fulfilled when he went to the west coast and signed with an AFL (Arena Football League) team. Shortly after signing with the team- his nightmare began. The interim coach lost his position, and his contract voided. Back on the struggle, J-Mane tried to think of ways to cope. Music became the answer. He was able to speak his story and help inspire others. His path appears to be finally set.

J-MANE

What’s next for J-Mane?

J-Mane, with inspirations from the death of his mother, family, friends, and the overall struggle of life, began his journey into the hip-hop scene. His story speaks for itself with hard times, conflict and poverty. His vision is evident. He aims to reach new heights and change the world with his music. His most recent single, “Proof,” featuring ex D-Block member J-Hood is the prime example of struggle in his life. The record speaks on his story of hardships. The truth that J-Mane speaks is something that everyone can identify. J-Mane is here to stay and is the next face of the hip-hop community.

Nappyboy Entertainment artist Sixx Mann holds a kids Nike shoe giveaway

Thursday, September 6th, 2018
SIXX MANN PARTNERS WITH CREATIVE KIDZ MEDIA FOR A KIDS’ NIKE SHOE GIVEWAY

The New Orleans artist/entrepreneur/philanthropist and early childhood education center are collaborating on a shoe giveaway in support of Kids and Nike.

The partnership is in support of Nike and its Believe In Something campaign, along with former NFL superstar/activist/philanthropist Colin Kaepernick. Sixx Mann and Creative Kidz believe that together with courageous figures such as Colin Kaepernick, we can effect positive change across the globe, but especially in the United States of America. Sixx Mann says, “By standing up for what is right and for what is just, we can ensure that our kids have the best future possible. We stand with Colin Kaepernick, Nike and all other positive figures, in showing our support for change. There is no better time than now. We must provide the most level playing field possible so that our kids can excel, whether that is in education or just life itself. We must do something now.” Sixx Mann is very active in his community, often volunteering time and resources to assist children and the elderly, along with disenfranchised individuals seeking direction in improving their respective situations. In addition, Creative Kidz’s learning center is also heavily involved in the community, offering a program fostering joy and learning. They offer a tuition free Pre-K program that incorporated two top-tiered research based early childhood learning curriculums, including FrogStreet and Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum.

Both Sixx Mann and Creative Kidz are cognizant that change should include helping to eradicate police brutality, effecting change in the educational system in the United States to ensure that it is more inclusive (thereby creating learning environments where children from all ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds can excel), creating sustainable jobs/careers, and helping our children to prosper, no matter the background from which they come. These ideals will help to foster an environment where at-risk youth and all others are able to work together to achieve their common goals, while being successful for generations to come. 

Sixx Mann and Creative Kidz are giving away fifty (50) pairs of Nike Athletic shoes (children’s sizes 0-1). Their respective Instagram pages (@sixxmann and @creativekidzmedia) contain instructions on the giveaway and how parents and others can take part.  Only fifty individuals will be selected for this giveaway, which is being held on a first come, first served basis.

[NEW MUSIC]DA GH0UL -“WHERE I BE” | @IAMDAGH0UL

Monday, August 20th, 2018

The Hip-Hop Monster, Da Gh0ul releases his debut single, “Where I Be”

 

Hip-hop has awoken a monster with a signature sound called ‘Enlightened Trap.’ The on-the-verge rapper, Da GhOul, has taken up the challenge in bringing light to this new genre with his new trap anthem “Where I Be.”

Da Gh0ul is a highly creative artist -who had always had a knack for music. Since the age of 8, Ghoul started writing raps. On “Where I Be,” Da Gh0ul uses a high powered, uptempo piano key beat mixed with a soft “X-Files” type melody to give a warning to haters, the feds, and anybody else who can’t see him. The song details his drive, grind, and hustle for achieving greatness amidst the ops; who may not know his acts or “whereabouts” (thus the title). But. he is at a greater place far from those, who are not about their business and the positive growth of “Self.”

Da Gh0ul realized at the early age of 8; he had a liking for creating music. Him and his younger sister Patricia Berry, a.k.a. Phoenyxx Flame began recording over instrumentals using a PS2 and a broken stereo with a working mic onto tapes. At the age of 13, Da Gh0ul started working with his beats at Fl Studio and found out rhythms drove him more to music. In 2007, the teenage rapper “Decata Boi” started working with an underground artist “Angry Dank” who taught him a few basics about recording. Relying on other artists/producers for studio time and promotion wasn’t entirely advancing his music career. With in-depth consideration, at the age 16, he invested into creating his recording studio.

He ‘s a contender that has next

In 2012, Da Ghoul released his first ever mixtape “The Juggernaut” on DatPiff.com with the help of a SCAD student and their Mac. Shortly after, he released his second mixtape,  #UA which was heavily promoted on Instagram. Also, he has collaborated with idols such as DJ Smalls, DJ Fresh (Rich Homie Quan DJ), and ” OJ Da Juiceman.”

Over time, Da Gh0ul has improved his sound and overall characteristics of one of the most unique/international hip-hop artist that the industry has seen in a while. His slick punchlines and lyrical flexibility mixed with a melodic Crunk tune are just a few words to describe the upcoming Dirty South rap artist. Ghoul is a force to be reckoned with! and Keep your eyes on this artist as a contender in the Hip-hop game.
