(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.

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.”

Heat Exclusive: New Orleans Gives Birth To Female Rap Artist G Baby

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

 

 

 

In life, we are often blessed with one great talent per family. Other times, the lineage reproduces itself. In New Orleans, a city rich in musical and cultural history, it gives birth to several creatives. Particularly, The Heat Magazine is honored to share the story of “G Baby” with our readers. She represents and continues a musical legacy started by her father, Warren Mayes. Mayes, a New Orleans rap pioneer and club promoter, was instrumental in the development of the hip hop and bounce scene in New Orleans. Years later, the world is blessed to hear from “daddy’s little girl.”

The Heat Magazine: How long have you been rapping?

G Baby: I started at the age of 13.

The Heat Magazine: What type of artists inspire you?

G Baby: My inspiration comes from my father Warren Mayes who was known as a legend of bounce music. His number 1 hit record, “Get It Girl” in the early 90’s paved the way for me. After being around the industry, I decided that’s what I wanted to do.

The Heat Magazine: What’s your vision as an artist?

G Baby: As an artist I would like my fans to look at me as a young professional who worked hard to get where I am today. I want people to know my work all over the United States.

The Heat Magazine: What’s the title of your hottest single?

G Baby: The title of my hottest single is ”Get it Girl”. It’s a new version. It’s taking off on radio. My inspiration behind the remix is to let the ladies on their grind know to get it by any means.

The Heat Magazine: What separates you from other female artists?

G Baby: I’m not trying to be like any other artist. My flow is natural and laid back. I keep it 100.

The Heat Magazine: What are some of your hobbies?

G Baby: Some of my hobbies are playing basketball, performing, shopping, rapping, and being a wonderful mother to my 2 year old son Cash.

The Heat Magazine: Describe your style.

G Baby: My style is my own. I am myself. I’m original. I thank all older females that paved the way. I have performed at most of the clubs in New Orleans and surrounding areas.

The Heat Magazine: Tell us about some experiences between you and your father.

G Baby: My father was a hardworker and whatever he did, he gave his all. Watching him made his daughter want to grind even harder and respect the hustle.

The Heat Magazine: How has living in New Orleans impacted your life and music?

G Baby: Living here in New Orleans makes you want to strive hard, work hard to make it in life. We are at the bottom of the map and some people feel that way about New Orleans people.

The Heat Magazine: Do you feel any pressure to walk in your father’s shoes as an artist?

G Baby: No, but I am thankful my father opened up doors for me.

The Heat Magazine: Education: How important is it? Did it affect your music career?

G Baby: Education is number one. Without knowledge, you have nothing. My music didn’t affect my schooling because I knew school had to come first.

The Heat Magazine: Community: How do you feel about it? How will you help?

G Baby: My community is still continuing to rebuild from Hurricane Katrina. I would like to be able to give back to the people who need it.

The Heat Magazine: Share something with your fans that only you could.

G Baby: Something I want my fans to know is to be true to yourself and keep God first. Prayers go up and blessings come down. Believe that.
