Boosie Speaks The Real On “In My Feelings, Goin’ Thru It”

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016




From Southside Baton Rouge, he stepped in on “Youngest Of The Camp,” and segued into Webbie featured  “Ghetto Stories” and “Gangsta Musik”.  Maintaining consistent sales, Boosie Bad Azz is much more to Louisiana rap listeners. He’s a representative for the urban community. A coveted superstar in Louisiana with a cult-like following, Boosie blew up and kept the mixtape game ringing with hot heartfelt mixtapes. Leading him to national prominence, Baton Rouge’s voice experienced the ebb and flow of being a national star.

Overcoming adversity and enjoying the fruits of his labor, Boosie had what some would label the best year of his life followed by discovering he had kidney cancer. Currently rehabilitating from a successful surgery, Torrence “Boosie Bad Azz” Hatch creates a definitive mixtape/album, “In My Feelings (Goin’ Thru It)” that captures his truest current day emotional state.

In brief, the unadulterated lyrical presentation by Boosie continues to serve as the pure reality of life. One of the key attributes Bad Azz possesses is the ability to present the visual and storyline of true experience.

He begins this project with a melancholy “Rain”. “The struggle of  a young hustler, I could teach you man/ Cancer in and out my body, I can breathe again”.  Moving right into “Cancer”, the banging musical oxymoron with a dreamy soulful track, “I can’t believe this ****, Cancer got me scared like I’m bout to leave this ****”. Boosie spits one of his most profound verses, “Father God, I need answers, Tell me God, how I get cancer?” He continues his testimony and asks “How long I live after my kidney gone?”

While it would be effortless to give our readers a song by song review, The Heat is certain readers will take a thorough  listen to this 10-track narrative delivered  by Boosie Bad Azz.

The Heat Magazine encourages our readers to enjoy Boosie’s latest release.

The album can be purchased on iTunes In My Feelings. (Goin’ Thru It) by Boosie Badazz


HEAT EXCLUSIVE: Fiend Unleashes New Mixtape, Don’t Touch My Radio

Friday, January 1st, 2016



Mr. Whomp Whomp aka Fiend aka International Jones releases new mixtape as a world premier on Datpiff. Hosted by Jet Life, Fiend jumps right in with “We Be In The City” kicking this mixtape off with an infectious track.  Then he transitions into the catchy “Pipe It Up”  and spits “me and wealth look good together, candy paint, wood and leather”.

Sticking to his mantra “Million Dollar Mission, Don’t Touch My Radio,” the New Orleans raspy rap icon maintains a cohesive body of work with unique freestyles and illustrious hooks. Beyond the signature plug,  Deelow X adds a dope hook  and verse on the actual cut “Million Dollar Mission”.

Fiend transcends and drops strong social commentary on “Missouri Madness” as he addresses the racial conflicts in Missouri. He gives kudos to Missouri’s college football team and their stance in the midst of racial issues on campus. “I was put here for greatness yet they greet me with hatred,” sends a powerful message concerning present day American issues.

Fiend rides comfortably through this mixtape and writes an imagery based project for his loyal listeners and beyond. The musical production complements his style and voice and Sleepy Eyes gains a stamp of approval on the first day of 2016.

Fiend closes the tape out with head banging “No Games” and taps right into the core of his artistry. The hook will be a constant in the dirty south and Midwest traps as usual.  The Heat Magazine invites our readers to listen to this fresh off the press release packed with smooth melodies and tight lyrical cadence. View his “Missouri Madness” video and gain an internal perspective of where Fiend is headed with “Don’t Touch My Radio”.

In a city inundated with musical talent covering all genres, it is not uncommon for a renaissance to occur. Particularly in New Orleans, musical geniuses have remained influential. From slavery days at Congo Square to the latest evolution of urban music currently, the Big Easy consistently provides a myriad of great music. Certainly, one can refer to it as “gumbo” because of the multitude of ingredients that provide an extraordinary “flavor” to this “dish” we know as music.
Hip Hop music with a touch of bounce and a dab of brass captures the spirit of New Orleans in its rawest form. The Heat Magazine in association with a primary ear to the street wanted to allow our readers to share in a new form of journalism. How could any music writer capture Nola music in full? This may be a difficult task but we are able to provide a comprehensive playlist of some of the latest and dopest happenings in the home of “Laissez le bon temps rouler”. Our goal is to always cover the hardwork of “creatives”.

“1 LIFE”

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

1 life

Today I met 3 amazing young men(Jamal Williams, Terrence Shivers, & Quinten Williams), that’s out here trying to better themselves, not be in the street or behind bars. They drove from Atlanta just to met me and when i say i felt so honored and blessed just to be in their presence, I know more than they were to be in mines. One of the young men just gave his life to christ sunday and when he told me, chills just went all through me because you don’t often here of 20 and 21 yr old young men doing that these days. What really stood out to me the most was they quit their jobs and move from Cleveland, Ohio to Atlanta, Ga on HOPE, A DREAM & FAITH!! I was so in shocked but it touched my heart to see them be so excited and in tune with who they were and what they want. I can’t express enough of how they love music and most of their own. When you REALLY love what you do, you will sacrifice, do without, and move in a way that no one would ever understand but it’s really not meant to be understood by everyone. These young men out here putting in work, getting scammed by people, etc but they refuse to give up. I asked “Why go so hard for this music that you putting out?” They told me “Well if you don’t believe in yourself or what you do, who will!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. “1 life” has so many meanings that I could go on and on about, but the name actually speaks volumes for itself. You only get “1” so you better make the best of the one you have, cuz when this one is over you can’t get a repeat!! Check out these young men song, watch they videos on YouTube and give them some love, I promise you won’t regret it.  My Thoughts Of The Day
