Heat Exclusive: Fiend Returns with Motivate Chu Video

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Grammy nominated/BMI songwriting award winner Fiend returns with his latest mixtape installment “1st Rolex”. Contrary to popular belief, the rapsy emcee is not literally referring to owning the high-end chronograph. “First Rolex is that first aha moment. That first experience in your own life that you really consider to be special,” said Fiend to the Heat Magazine.  

A No-Limit Records superstar, Fiend also known as International Jones, carries the moniker Mr. Whomp Whomp and Capital FI as a badge of honor. During his humble beginnings, he became professionally known as Fiend due to his love for rapping and writing lyrics. Coincidentally, he pays homage to Rakim, who many refer to as the GOAT, and his classic hit “Microphone Fiend”.

The Heat Magazine had the opportunity to chop it up with Fiend prior to the release of his new Jet Life hosted mixtape. He wanted to lace our readers with his new video “Motivate Chu”, directed by Dexstr8dope.  The multi-faceted artist has been in a reflective mind state lately and his thoughts are accentuated musically. “I’m in a good place mentally. I have clarity on a lot of things in life.”

For all the true Fiend fans and lovers of hip hop, check out the new soulful spectacle here:


Platinum Songwriter Dappa Returns With Back to Back Visuals

Monday, December 5th, 2016


In an interval, New Orleans eclectic hip hop artist Dappa has been busy assisting the careers of other artists in New Orleans and abroad. Whether it was recording engineering, live shows, producing, or songwriting, he immersed himself in the arts and displayed selflessness this past few years.

All of this has transpired on the heels of being a vital  element in the rap group “The Rap Pack”. Dappa’s talent transcends his participation with this talented group. He quietly gained platinum success due to his songwriting contribution on Baby Boy Da Prince’s single “The Way I Live”.

Last year in the studio with Dappa while recording a collaborative effort, he mentioned that he was unsure of when to release new material but still remained focused and humble.

A year later, he’s planting seeds of great and unique music. Ranging from fun recordings to heartfelt products, Dappa is in his zone and his creativity is currently manifesting.

The second entry is a compelling video that speaks internally to Dappa and serves as extrinsic motivation to other creatives in the music industry.

The Heat wants our readers to observe his new visual “Motivation” here:


His first entry consolidates a season of thanksgiving while he participates in the trendy “U Name It” challenge. This particular visual garnered rapid feedback and landed him an interview and live performance on news anchor Sheba Turk’s specialty show “504”.

STANDING ROOM ONLY: In Remembrance of Atonia Powell

Sunday, October 9th, 2016


They say angels walk among us. It isn’t often we get to experience them in the flesh, but so it was with Antonia.
On July 20, 2016, a beautiful soul left this earth. Her name was Atonio Marie Atonia Powell.

Atonia was a talented songstress whose music was known around the globe, hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana. Her husband, well-known entertainer Troy Laz, and she had put on many shows, both solo and as a duo. This beautiful soul had such a positive spirit and those who crossed her path, genuinely loved her.


Atonia fought a fierce battle against cancer, until finally succumbing to the disease, leaving many sad souls behind. But we know Atonia is now in a place truly befitting a queen.


Atonio, by all accounts was a loving wife, mother, friend, sister, aunt, and so much more. From a young age, friends and family knew she was a special person who would go on to perform some great feats – and that she did. From the popular Homecoming Queen at Joseph S. Clark High School to the riveting performer who graced countless stages, Atonia is described by many as “an angel”.

Bishop R. C. Blakes commented on the sheer number of people who came to pay their respects to Atonia several months ago. Her going away service, just like her performances, was standing room only.


Atonia’s family wanted to make sure she was honored in a way that she could never be forgotten. The Heat Magazine sends our condolences to all who loved Atonia. She’ll be missed.

Heat Exclusive: Brass-A-Holics On The Move

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016


Since 2010, the Brass-a-Holics have been taking their unique sound around the world. Steeped in the deep musical culture of New Orleans, the band brings a heavy dose of go-go funk to the New Orleans brass sound. In a blending of musical cultures stemming from cities separated by more than a thousand miles, a Brass-a-Holics live show takes the New Orleans brass band culture and infuses it with the electricity of Washington D.C.’s go-go. The resulting sound is both captivating and unique. The band consists of core New Orleans brass elements- trumpet, trombone, saxophone- and adds a full drum set, percussion, keyboard, bass an electric guitar, giving the band limitless options to explore new sonic territory.

Whether performing their original music or using the framework of hit pop songs as springboards for fiery improvisations, there is something in the set to appeal to every music fan. Once the music starts, the demographics blend and a brand new experience is created- one that leaves one-of-a-kind memories that live on long after the last note.

The Heat Magazine has been on the horn with Winston Turner and keeping up with the latest developments within this high-end brass band phenomenon. We wanted our readers to be aware of the tour dates and more. Ranging from gigs at The Blue Nile in New Orleans to the Jazz Fest, the Brass-A-Holics permeate the United States and overseas with their sound.

Their upcoming gigs include the Charleston Pourhouse in South Carolina followed by an appearance at the Whitewater River Jam in North Carolina. (May 11th and May 12th) From there, the Brass-A-Holics head to Washington, D.C. on June 4th at The Hamilton.

The show continues in New Jersey at Michael Arnone’s Crawfish Festival.
