Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

By: Hurricane Arlene

New Orleans’ 17th Ward has long been known as a hotbed of solid and unique talent – a mecca, if you will. The proverbial torch has been handed down from the legends to a new crop of lyrical creatives that includes and is a led by Jay Jones, Hollygrove Keem and prior to his recent untimely death, BTY YoungN. The trio has an amazing and unrivaled energy and are sure to leave quite a mark on the entertainment world.

The trio’s new album “Cut the Check” is a precursor to much more new music, but is a classic in and of itself. “Cut the Check” includes the smash hit with Fetty Wap entitled “The Zoo”, and contains features from the legendary Jay Da Menace (of Black Menace), recent 300 signee Navè Monjo, T3, AR-Ab, Remyboy Monty, and C-Dash. Breakout hit “Stay Down” is also included in the dope tracklisting.

Jay Jones recently began touring with Lil Wayne’s Kloser 2 U Tour and has traveled across the U.S. performing in various shows, including Wayne’s SXSW headlined show. Hollygrove Keem is a sought after rapper, having featured on countless songs with more material set to be released soon. At the time of his death on April 29th, BTY YoungN was a rising star affiliated with Cash Money/Rich Gang, and was a well-known rapper and entertainment personality. His loss created a ripple effect throughout the music world.

“Cut the Check” is available for download/streaming everywhere music is sold, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal, JPay, and hundreds of other international outlets.

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

img_8335

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

atonia1

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.

atonia4

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.
