(HEAT EXCLUSIVE) Cincinnati’s own A-Money drops hot new project

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

In the entertainment world, especially where music artists are concerned, you have to have something special that stands out. Cincinnati rapper/entertainment personality A-Money has that special combination of lyrical ability and personality – qualities we don’t hear as often as we’d like. A-Money’s here to fill that void by providing quality music that stands the test of time. In his words, “They know.” One listen and you’ll understand why “THEY KNOW”.

A-Money’s a real street cat with the business acumen to turn his career into a lasting and profitable venture for many years to come. We caught up with him recently and here’s what he had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Who were the 3 most important influences on your life?

A-MONEY: My grandmother – that’s where I learned intellect and how to articulate. The other two are street nigg*s – they street nigg*s so I ain’t gone say they name.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What do you feel sets you apart from your counterparts?

A-MONEY: You should be able to hear the difference in my voice. This music is made from real sh*t, from a real nigg* to all real nigg*s. They know.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What new projects are you currently working on?

A-MONEY: Aw man, all kind of sh*t coming up. I’m droppin “Guadalajara” which is straight dope and will be available on iTunes and wherever u get yo music real soon. “Trappin” will be available on iTunes, Spotify, all that July 4th.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What do you believe is the single most important piece of advice you can give a young entertainer who is just starting out?

A-MONEY: Shid, I’m a young entertainer just starting out so all I can say is try to learn shit like I am. Feel me?

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: You’ve already worked with some amazing and legendary entertainers. If you could pick 5 other artists or producers with whom you’d like to work, who would that be and why?

A-MONEY: That’s a good ass question. So many people, but I will say Kanye and T.I. “Ye vs. the people starring T.I as the people” made me start back f*cking with this music sh*t. It was genius and innovative. Also, Big Juice the producer, the Migos, Rihanna and Baby Soljia. It’s a lot more; I just tried to touch on some different areas.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Where can your fans expect to see you in the next 5 years?

A-MONEY: Ha Ha ….. sh*t, it depends on how they continue to take a nigg* music. 5 years, I can either be on Hollywood Boulevard, or back on Reading Road. Feel me?

Meet INDOE, one of the hardest working young entertainers out

Monday, June 25th, 2018

From Hermosa Beach, California to Montclair, New Jersey – to points in the entertainment industry that most young entertainers would sell their souls for, INDOE has definitely touched down and is here to stay!

In fact, INDOE has accomplished feats that most seasoned entertainers have only been able to dream of – from performing background vocals on hits from MC Lyte and Big L (as a youngster we might add), to working with superstars such as Destiny’s Child, Wyclef Jean, Pink, and Kandi Burrus. But wait …. There’s more! INDOE has a role on 50 Cent’s POWER.

INDOE is working tirelessly to make a name for herself. And she’s doing just that. We caught up with her recently, and here’s what she had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell the readers a little about yourself.

INDOE: Well, I was raised between California and New Jersey. I have loved music my entire life and that’s what I have devoted my life to.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: If you could pick 3 people who influenced you and helped to shape you as a person, who would that be and how did they influence you?

INDOE: My mother, my father and God – all three of those energies have created who I am and I don’t feel right saying anyone else but those people.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What do you feel sets you apart from your counterparts?

INDOE: Well, I feel like everyone is different. Everyone has their own thing. So it’s not about what sets me apart; I feel like it’s more how are all the same. Everyone is putting forth their feelings. Everyone is putting forth their best foot in regards to what I do. I just think that I am honest and I say things that, you know, people can relate to and hopefully they like it.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What new projects are you currently working on?

INDOE: I’m finishing my album, getting ready to release a second single and I’m also currently on Power Season Five. I will be on Episode Four. I just finished shooting again for the upcoming season and I hope to be working some more.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What do you believe is the single most important piece of advice you can give a young entertainer who is just starting out?

INDOE: Don’t stop. Focus is everything. Do not get distracted. There be a lot of pretty boys and pretty girls – a lot of temptation – but the people that make it out are people keep their heads down into their work, to not let any distractions get in the way.

EDITOR’S NOTE: INDOE’s DLK Entertainment imprint currently has the single “Deep” out, available everywhere music is sold/streamed. INDOE is a rising star, if ever there were one! Follow INDOE and her team:

Jim Jones Arrested on Drug and Gun Charges Following Police Chase

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

Jim Jones is facing a handful of charges after he and friends led Georgia cops on a chase that ended with him getting busted for possession of drugs and a handgun … TMZ has learned.

The NYC rapper was a backseat passenger in a car cops pulled over Thursday night in Cowetta County. According to the Sheriff’s Dept., instead of stopping, the car accelerated and cops gave chase. During the chase, the car struck a deputy’s vehicle … and finally stopped.

We’re told Jones and three others were in the car. After a search, deputies found marijuana, oxycodone, Percocet, vape cartridges, THC oil, 2 loaded pistols and cash … which Jones called “just petty cash.”

One of the pistols was stolen, according to cops. Neither Jones nor his friends admitted possession of any of the items … but Jones said he had a prescription for the Oxy and Percocet pills. Jones also told cops he told the driver to pull over, but she was acting “incoherent.”

Kehli Berry – Founder of The Divas of Compton & 1 Shine Youth Services

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

The Heat Magazine: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Kehli Berry: My name is Kehli Berry and I am a native of Compton, California. I grew up in Compton and was sheltered from the gang violence, crime, and drugs. My parents had careers and were both models and very involved in Sports & Dance. From a young age all I can remember was being in Fashion Shows with my sister ad brother and watching my father walk like King down the runways and watching my mother Slay the runway in some of the most adoring outfits and bathing suits.

I grew up dancing with Mid Cities Drill Team out of Lueders Park and playing Tee-Ball out of Victory Park in Compton, CA. My most fondest memories as a child is waking up on Saturday Mornings to Anita Baker or Sadeblasting throughout the house. Hearing Anita Baker and Sade gave me such a sense of peace andstability. TiIl this day it reminds me of the fresh smell of cut grass by my father and the smell of coffee lingering through the hallways of our home.

The Heat Magazine: Growing up, who were your artistic influences?

Kehli Berry: While growing up in the 80’s and 90’s I grew a love for Salt N’ Peppa and TLC. I walkways wanted to be a Fly Girl on “In Living Color” or be a background Dancer for MC Hammer. Seeing women in Hip Hop who were strong, yet Sexy and demanded Respect was who I chose to model myself after. Till This Day, I am such a product of the era of Female Rappers who Demanded Respect but was still Sexy and FLY…

The Heat Magazine: What is your most cherished accomplishment to date?

Kehli Berry: While an undergraduate in College in Atlanta, Georgia I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Ghana, West Africa to perform for Ghana’s 50th Anniversary of Independence. It was there that I realized my calling and purpose.I then came back to Atlanta and founded the Youth Enrichment Program, an after school and summer program for at risk youth and teens. At the age of 21 years old I had written my first grant and was able to be a leader in the community and incorporate youth programming that focused equally on leadership, performing arts, and academics.

While an undergraduate student I also created the DIVAS Dance program for youth and teen girls. This program was modeled after my experiences staying in the dorms while I was a student at Clark Atlanta University. The name of my Dorm was Bumstead Hall and our Dorm Mascot was the DIVAS.

While a student at Clark Atlanta University I stepped on my dormitory’s step team and learned the true meaning of sisterhood.. This influenced my desire to bring the DIVAS to Compton and create a program for inner city youth and teen girls.

The Heat Magazine: What projects are you currently working on?

Kehli Berry: Currently, my husband and I have opened up a Youth Center in Compton, CA and we are looking to branch out and eventually return to Atlanta, GA to do the same.In the future we hope to develop schools abroad and partner with community organizations to increase more Youth programs that focus on performing arts and leadership.Our goal is to be a counterculture to all of the negative displays of females in Hip Hop and/or Dance and to be a representation of positivity for youth and communities to model themselves after.We are excited about positively impacting the lives of our communities, one child at a time.

The Heat Magazine: If you could work with any actor/actress, who would that be?

Kehli Berry: If I had one actress to work with, I would work with Angela Bassett or Jada Pinkett-Smith. These female Actresses embody strength, grace, poise, and strength.

The Heat Magazine: What other avenues of entertainment are you working within or hoping to branch off into?

Kehli Berry: I am an Actor, Dancer, Model, and an Educator, but my love for youth development has made me passionate about ensuring that the next generation of youth and teens are equipped with the essential tools needed to thrive and improve the quality of their life.

The Heat Magazine: Tell us about The Rep Yo City Dance Competition that’s coming up?

Kehli Berry: Currently we are promoting our 4th annual “Rep Yo City Dance Competition.” This is a dance competition we host yearly in which teams from all over the USA come out to represent for their hometown. This event promotes unity in the dance community and gives dancers a chance to network and develop friendships with youth from all across the nation. Dance is a bridge that we use to connect and bring together individuals from all walks of life, and at the Rep Yo City Competition, each team brings with them their own creativity and uniqueness from their region and hometown. The presence of all of these teams creates a memorable and fun filled family experience for all. We are excited that the Rep Yo City Dance Competition is highly sought after event for the youth in Compton and serves as an event whee the youth and their creativity is celebrated.
