(NEW HEAT) Devious makes history with “Bounce That” (Prod. by BlaqNMild)

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

“We gonna start this thing off right – we got Devious in the house tonight!” – From 1992’s hit single “Where They At”

New Orleans legend Devious (and of course, Hollygrove’s own) has long been a mainstay in urban music. His new single “Bounce That” was released just as Drake’s new singles are working to bring New Orleans’ unique and often imitated/never fully duplicated sound to the world! Super producer BlaqNMild created the track and added his awesome flavor to the already delicious recipe. Yes folks, it’s an exciting time in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Devious has long worked as an architect of New Orleans’ exciting sound, most notably for his historical work on DJ Jimi’s 1992 hit single “Where They At”. In fact, that song solidified the careers of not only Jimi, but Devious and Mellow Fellow and led to an explosion of Bounce Music as an entire sub-genre. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we must put it out there that New Orleans culture created Bounce. The city’s own legends catapulted it into mainstream. Once it took its place in music history, artists such as Drake and T.I. helped to make the sound travel even further around the globe – BUT credit must be given to those who created, cultivated and nurtured Bounce and New Orleans music in the beginning! Devious is one of those “bricklayers”.

“Bounce That” is available at all digital outlets. A full length album entitled “The Narrative” will soon be released by Devious and you can expect to see some memorable collaborations on deck. Devious is a highly lauded, talented and awarded songwriter, artist, entreprenuer, educator, and mentor who has been busy gaining songwriting credits with Cardi B, Lil Duval, Project Pat, and more. As of late, BlaqNMild has been producing for Drake on “Nice For What” and “In My Feelings”, as well as on Devious’ upcoming album.

Be on the lookout for Devious’ new video and single “Coffee House” feat another legendary Hollygrove MVP, Fiend. In fact, be on the lookout for Devious and BlaqNMild to continue adding to the history of New Orleans’ beautiful entertainment resume!

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.

Devious & Kevin Gates collaborate on ‘You Sleep Out Here’ single

Saturday, July 12th, 2014
"You Sleep Out Here" will be available on iTunes July 15th

“You Sleep Out Here” will be available on iTunes July 15th

Longevity and success are the goals of any acknowledged musician. Rapper, best-selling songwriter, creator, educator, and hip hop architect Devious has most certainly achieved those goals.

Devious helped to create New Orleans hip hop music through a series of steps, most notably the fact that he began his career when he was a mere pre-teen. After decades of a pilgrimage of sorts, it culminated in him being awarded ASCAP Songwriter of the Year, a proud honor that only a handful of artists can claim.

Devious’ work with youth to create positive outlets where they can express themselves and showcase their talent has only added to his resume. He created the New Orleans Union of Entertainment, a successful organization that helped shine a light on the city’s underground talent. He eventually added a youth chapter where teens and others can take part in brainstorming, networking, sharing entertainment ideas, and much more. In addition, his music has also taken a turn toward positivity and inspiring others, most importantly, our youth.

Devious’ recent collaboration with international superstar Kevin Gates is set to unleash a stream of consciousness and create a positive and thought provoking single,” You Sleep Out Here”. The single will be available on iTunes on July 15th. It is produced by award winning New Orleans based producer, BlaqNMild.

We wanted to know more about this epic collaboration – we caught up with Devious to get his take on it. Here’s what he had to say, “Kevin is an intelligent guy and his work ethic speaks volumes. My cousin Eddreon who lives in Baton Rouge, made me aware of him two years ago and suggested that we collaborate. Based on my cousin’s referral, his team responded to me. After a few months of Gates being unavailable, his team reached out to me. Cise made a hot mixtape record for me and I felt Gates fit the track. BlaqNMild produced the iTunes version. Kevin is down to earth and his team is very accountable. Out of respect for his craft and success, we wanted to add to his movement versus just grabbing a feature to bandwagon his buzz. Cise and I have been creating instrumental songs and submitting them to major labels for placement. I think it bridges the gap between my audience and his. I wanted to do something special to reach the youth and show Louisiana that we really work together regardless of status or label affiliation. I reached out to BlaqNMild because I wanted people to hear his skill set on a hip hop composition. He’s extremely talented and diverse. It all worked out and the stars lined up for all of us on this record. It’s a gumbo mix for sure.”
