Relentless pursuit of man’s greatest dream describes the demeanor of New Orleans eclectic producer, BlaqnMild.

If you’ve been following rap music in New Orleans and around the globe, you’ve heard the famous tag, “BlaqnMild you a genius” in the background of several blossoming artists such as 89 Boys, Partners N Crime, Lady Dahlia, Calliope Var, Devious, Skip & Six Ward Pook, Detroit, and many more.

Anchoring hip hop in its incumbent form as well as creating the “beat” for bounce legends Big Freedia and the late Magnolia Shorty, Adam “BlaqnMild” Pigott stays on his grind.

As a result, he’s been busy making major moves with music mogul Master P.  Blaq has produced a plethora of hits with the “colonel” including a surprising collaboration “Power” featuring Lil Wayne, Master P, and Money Mafia of No Limit Forever.

In the midst of all these accolades, BlaqnMild has created solo projects along the way. One of his earlier singles, “Birthday” featured Princess of Crime Mob.  From there, he went on to produce hits such as “Favorite Girl”, “Let Me Find Out”, “You Sleep Out Here feat Kevin Gates”, “Booty Bop”, “UptownDowntown” and more.

As the professional culture of hip hop calls BlaqnMild in to work earnestly, he returns with his new single, “Feel Special”. Check it out on soundcloud.

A Closer Look at the Hottest Movement in New Orleans: New Orleans Union For Entertainment(1 Yr. and Counting)

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Systematically, it is normal for top music industry stakeholders in particular markets to consolidate current music releases and forward it to the masses within that market.  Bloggers, deejay pools, well-known  producers and deejays, journalists, and radio personalities are responsible for delivering new music to the audience.  Although this is an effective model, some areas often have a slower movement related to the advancement of music as a whole within their area.

 

 

 

 

 

A year ago, New Orleans stakeholders addressed that concern by developing a music union, New Orleans Union For Entertainment.  Within one year, ten releases via mix tapes have been presented locally and nationally online.

“Heart of The City” , NOUE’s  anniversary edition mix tape,  represents the deeper meaning of the union which is to “collectively advance.”  As the release date nears, NOUE continues to realize the vision that true New Orleans artists share which is to preserve and promote the heart of New Orleans urban  talent locally and abroad. New Orleans Union For Entertainment has been in operation since June of 2011 and has quickly developed over a short period of time in hope of a more productive music scene in New Orleans.
