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.

3 Things You Didn’t Know About K. Michelle!

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Who Is K Michelle?

1. K. Michelle went to college on a scholarship!

K. Michelle got a free scholarship to FAMU, for “yodeling”. It was very unique and set her apart from others. She was even pregnant through college but that didn’t stop her, she finished on time and got her degree in “psychology”. Wow had no idea. K. Michelle might just be a true genius, to have played such a villain on the show, shes is truly smarter then what people have given her credit for.
“Yeah, I got a scholarship for yodeling. It’s a HBCU (historically black college and university), so they weren’t used to that. I sang other songs as well, but I yodeled and they gave me a scholarship.”Who knew! K.’s 7-year-old son was born while the singer was still at FAMU, but the musician was able to have her son and still obtain a degree in psychology in four years.”
“That’s why when people say they can’t go to college and the can’t finish college, I don’t hear them. I went to class everyday up until I had my baby, and I went back to school a week later. And I graduated on time, in four years,” K. told The Urban Daily.

2. K. Michelle is an advocate against domestic violence
K. Michelle made major headlines when it was revealed on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 2 that she and ex-boyfriend Mickey “Memphitz” Wright were allegedly in an abusive relationship. It was especially shocking seeing as Memphitz is now married to Toya Carter (aka rapper Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife). In 2012, the singer starred in a PSA against domestic violence where she was made to look like a battered woman.

3. K. Michelle has her own reality show in the works!
That’s right! While we know that K. Michelle has moved on to Love & Hip Hop NY in an attempt to work on her career, she recently revealed that her appearances LHHNY are a trade in for her own VH1 reality show! K. says that he new show will feature her working on her singing career and hanging with her industry friends like Elle Varner, and her ex-boyfriend, NBA star Lance Stephenson. We can’t wait!
