(NEW HEAT) Hollygrove Keem – “Who Run It” (Freestyle)

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Hollygrove Keem is back, this time with even more smoke. He just dropped the visuals to “Who Run It”, a freestyle video with cameos from some of New Orleans’ up and coming music artists and entrepreneurs including Punn Da Pusha and the CEO of Distribute apparel company. The video was directed/edited by well-known videographer @DigitalDess.

Keem has long been a standout among his musical peers in New Orleans, Louisiana. Hailing from the infamous Hollygrove neighborhood, Hollygrove Keem has built his brand from the ground up over the past couple of years, having toured the nation with 0017th and worked with the likes of Fetty Wop, the late great BTY YoungN, Jay Jones, Reem, Punn Da Pusha, and more. He has endured more than his share of pain over the past couple of years, but that only served to push him harder. Ask around – Hollygrove Keem is back, better than ever and ready to take his place among the stars of his generation.

It is available for streaming/download on Soundcloud and it’s already garnered over 20,000 streams and hundreds of downloads. The single is available for purchase on iTunes. Produced by KC, “Ali” features Kango Slimm, 1/2 of the legendary group Partners-N-Crime (PNC). It also showcases the lyrical talent offered up by #0017th, in the form of group members acclaimed producer Nesby Phips, Reem, Hollygrove Mikey, and Jay Jones. It will be featured on Hollygrove Mikey’s upcoming mixtape entitled “The Ca$hius Clay Tape”. Anybody whose ever heard Mikey spit, will know exactly what this means – a mixtape from one of the greatest of all time.

(HOT #HEAT PICKS) #0017TH – The Movement

Monday, January 7th, 2013


If the question is, “What’s the hottest movement out right now?”, the answer would be, “Without a doubt, the #0017TH movement.” What’s that you say? Well, the #0017TH movement is the hottest thing going right now and The Heat wants to make sure you know all about it.

The multi-talented Nesby Phips

The multi-talented Nesby Phips

Straight out of New Orleans’ 17TH Ward neighborhood Hollygrove, Ground Zero for epic talent, comes the #0017TH movement. It started with the Nesby Phips/Reem collaborative mixtape, “#0017TH Hollygrove Ain’t Enough”.

Agent Reem of the #017TH

The mixtape is all original in content and contains the hottest acts in the business right now – the multi-talented Nesby Phips and his partner in crime of sorts, Reem, of course, along with guests such as the legendary veteran J-Dawg from Black Menace and his son, the up and coming lyricist Jay Jones, Hollygrove Mikey, Curren$y, Mack Maine, Kango Slimm from Partners N Crime, Juvenile, the female spitter The Gurl Elle, Rock from Da U Boys, and Hound.

As if the mixtape and recently released videos were not hot enough, the #0017TH movement has been co-signed by Mack Maine, YMCMB’s self-professed “Obama”. You know when Mack Maine co-signs something, it is white hot. To add to the mixtape buzz, has been a series of cypher videos featuring Nesby Phips, Reem, Hollygrove Mikey, Jay Jones, Curren$y, and Mack Maine. They are a definite must-see/must-hear for any true raphead.

#SALUTE to the #0017TH movement. Nesby & Reem are two of the hottest spitters already – couple that with the talent with which they are collaborating, and The Heat predicts that New Orleans is about to again be put on the proverbial map – the world’s not ready for the coming musical revolution!

If you hear anybody say they have not heard anything unique, innovative or new lately in music or that they are bored with everything that is currently out, you can rest assured that they have not yet downloaded “#0017TH Hollygrove Ain’t Enough”. We will not give all the secrets away because, of course, we expect you to also download the tape, but we have to mention this – this is the first tape that combines a James Bond like presence with some of the best hip hop you will ever hear.
