(NEW HEAT) Pee Wee Da Kidd – “Like A Villain” (VIDEO)

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Like A Villain (Explicit) by Pee Wee Da Kidd on VEVO.

Young, vibrant and charismatic, Louisiana artist Pee Wee Da Kidd is an up and coming artist/songwriter who definitely bears watching. His latest offering, the visuals to his song “Like A Villain”, chronicles everyday life and struggle Down South.

Hailing from a small Southwestern Louisiana town nestled between Lake Charles and Lafayette, Pee Wee Da Kidd is proof positive that being from a tiny area does not mean you can’t make it. In fact, it only makes him grind harder so he can be the shining star he is destined to become.

“Like A Villain” gives an up close and personal look at Pee Wee Da Kidd’s street side, but make no mistake about it – Pee Wee has definite crossover appeal. He is also the epitome of hard work paying off. He recently inked a distribution deal through Empire by way of entertainment powerhouse Starvin Lion Entertainment. Pee Wee is most definitely working up the ranks of independent artists.

WHAT’S RIGHT WITH US: Livin Lavish

Friday, May 1st, 2015

rell1

one life. one dream. keep livin.

As we introduce our new series entitled “WHAT’S RIGHT WITH US”, we want to encourage positivity tempered with common sense. If you see something wrong, do what you can to repair the problem. If you believe there is nothing you can do to alleviate it, call attention to it so our world can help you solve the problem, and we can begin to move in the right direction. Clearly, we have not been doing that – at least not to the extent where our children can grow and prosper and live up to their potential. It is up to us to set an example. We here at The Heat have been inspired by those leaders in our communities – the ones who built their paths by hand, for they set examples for generations to come. Those to whom things were given freely never have an interesting journey or story to tell. For those who work for everything they have and “get it out the mud”, it is a different story. Allow us to introduce you to Rell Thomas, jack of many trades and purveyor of the Livin Lavish Brand.

His positive image does wonders for those who follow his grind – in fact, it is one of the things that is “WHAT’S RIGHT WITH US.” One look at his Instagram feed and it is obvious he dreams of big ideas.

Orlando Thomas (pictured), a defensive back for the Minnesota Vikings, has passed away at age 42 after a seven-year battle with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease,

Thomas, a second-round draft pick out of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana at Lafayette) in 1995, played solely with the Vikings until 2001. The former player who stood 6’2″ and around 225 pounds most of his playing career, reportedly whittled down to a mere 70 pounds at the time of his passing. Thomas had a noteworthy career with his team, starting 82 of 98 career games for them and intercepting 22 passes. He scored four touchdowns, two on fumbles and two on interceptions.

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. People diagnosed with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis. There is no cure and only one drug is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that modestly extends survival. The viral Ice Bucket Challenge in support of ALS.

A man has revealed how he woke up in a dark, locked airplane after staff failed to wake him up after they landed in Houston.
Tom Wagner, who had taken off from Louisiana for California on Friday, said he was stunned when he awoke to an empty plane during a layover at Bush’ Continental Airport in Houston, Texas.

‘I woke up and I saw the lights were out,’ Wagner, a 51-year-old boat captain from Lafayette, Louisiana, told the Today show. ‘I looked down the aisle – ain’t nobody home.’

At first he admitted that he found the bizarre incident funny.

‘I had a little smile: I’ve got to get off here,’ he said.

Police arrest man caught on camera having sex with dogs

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

When you see Dr. Cathryn Lafayette interacting with her four pit bull dogs, it’s clear she loves them and they love her.

Lafayette said she was inside her home taking a nap on Saturday when someone knocked on her door.

When she stepped outside, several Newton County deputies were in her yard.

“I’m thinking, ‘Oh my God, don’t tell me that the dogs got out,'” she said.

She was worried her dogs got out and attacked someone.

“A deputy told me I didn’t do anything wrong, I was the victim. I said, ‘Victim!’ I’m thinking, ‘Wait a minute, did someone kill my dog?’ He said, ‘No the neighbor behind you, they saw the teenager having sex with your female dogs.’ I said, ‘Having sex with my female dogs?’ I think they must have got it wrong,” said Lafayette.

Lafayette didn’t believe them until they showed her the video her neighbors recorded.

“And it showed him on his knees inside the kennel with my dog. He was on his knees like he was a dog,” said Lafayette.

Police arrested 19-year old Bernard Archer and charged him with two counts of bestiality.

TYRONE “DA DON” DAVIS CELEBRATES 40 YEARS IN RADIO!

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Tyrone Davis began his radio career in 1972 in Laurel, Mississippi. He spent several years in Lafayette, Louisiana. From Lafayette he moved to Memphis and did promotions for Malaco Records. Tyrone believes “everyone experiences the blues” he says “it’s just a way of life, from the corns on your feet to getting that pay check on Friday and heading to the blues club. It’s just a way of life”.


2011 JUS BLUES AWARD WINNER FOR BEST BLUES & SOUL RADIO SHOW

Happy Birthday Tyrone “Da Don Davis”!

THE HEAT: Tyrone “Da Don” Davis, how’s everything going?
DA DON: Everything’s good…I can’t complain about anything.
THE HEAT: We’ve been trying to catch up with you for a minute. You’ve been busy.
DA DON: Well, I’m sure everybody’s busy at this stage.
THE HEAT: They better be in today’s times or get left behind.
DA DON: Yeah, I’m just doing my thang. This coming June it’ll be “forty” years.
THE HEAT: Wow! What a great feat in life to have accomplished. Much love to you in your dedication to the love of music. You are one of the reason’s I love what I do. Meeting people who have a love for music. You are the top Blues DJ on the radio right now, congratulations.
DA DON: Thank you. I’m glad that you thank I am. It’s an honor that you would even say that. I’m not sure that statement is true, but nevertheless, I thank you for saying that.
THE HEAT: I mean given your ratings and your status quo in the radio industry, I don’t think there are many that would dispute that. Especially since you recently received the 2011 JUS BLUES AWARD FOR BEST BLUES & SOUL RADIO SHOW.

DA DON: Since you put it like that, I guess it could be true. (we giggle) I’m with a great network. We’re syndicated in over forty markets. Recently welcoming: WIGO Atlanta, GA & KCOH Houston, TX. Our other larger markets are Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, Birmingham, AL, and the list goes on and on.
THE HEAT: I’m often criticized from the younger generation when I try to educate them on the fact that if it weren’t for the Blues, we’d have no music at all. What’s your take on that?
DA DON: I think that this genre of music is really on the upswing. I recently read an article where Gail King, OperaWinfrey friend, said that her favorite music was this genre of music, one in particular, Mel Waiters. She said that she was introduced to the Blues by Bruce Springsteen, isn’t that something. I think this genre of music is really on an upswing. It’s just like that New Orleans “bounce” was about fifteen or so years ago. You can look at how things have grown for them. I think this music is really getting ready to take off.
THE HEAT: This is why people like you are so vitally important to the continuous movement of Blues/Southern Soul music. If it weren’t for DJ’s, to go along with the Blues, where would we be? (we laugh)
DA DON: Gotta love the DJ’s!
THE HEAT: It is always a pleasure to search through the crevices of the worlds shakers and bakers, from what the new generation is calling, “The Sip”, (Mississippi), especially from my hometown Laurel, MS, where so many legends and stars are born, to shout out to them and say, “Hey, I see you and I love what you’re doing! Keep it moving little L.A.”.
DA DON: Yeah, over 40 years ago I started loving the airwaves in Laurel, Ms.

Lil Glenn from Laurel

Little Glenn was the big man when I started coming out of Laurel. Then there was “Jimmy Earl”, “Jimmy Lee”, “Leon Franklin”, Harvey Knight” and “CJ the DJ”. I was on the air back then as “Sly Ty”. The next generation came along with those like “White Dog”, “Skillet”,

ATL's V-103 Greg Street

“Greg Street” “Disco Kid”, and the late grate, “Little Richard”. I got my start in Laurel, MS and I’m very proud of that too, it’s a rich heritage.
THE HEAT: So when you go home and visit, are you swamped with youngsters wanting to get some of that knowledge you have acquired in your career as a disc jockey?
DA DON: Not one! I can’t believe it either. I can remember “The Great Ookie Dookie” was a DJ in New Orleans, we didn’t get a chance to really talk but we talked some and I took what I needed to help me. Not one youngster from home has ever approached me about a career as a successful DJ. If you know of anyone please send them my way, I want to pass this knowledge on to them.
THE HEAT: Sounds fantastic. That’s love. Most people are selfish and want to hoard what they know and how they got to be who they are hindering others. I love the fact that you’re much like me; willing to share.
DA DON: I’m here for those who want it.
THE HEAT: Sounds great. Is there anything you want to leave us with to pass on to the fans or the artist from “The Heats” #1 Blues/Southern Soul DJ?
DA DON: American Blues Network is doing well. There’s one thing I want to leave to the artist. Please, the only way this music is going to grow, your production has to grow with it. Make sure you get the best quality sound you can get. Many artist wonder why their music doesn’t get played on the radio, for me, it’s because the quality of the sound isn’t it’s best.
THE HEAT: Now that you’ve mentioned that. Where can someone get in touch with you in reference to getting their music on your show?
DA DON: They can contact me at: tyronedavis23@msn.com and I’ll listen and see what we can do and I will have an opinion.
THE HEAT: Da Don, don’t be a stranger to The Heat. Come back and keep us posted with what’s happening in the Southern Soul world so we can bridge the gap of what the artist is saying is a style of music that needs rejuvenating and you, the DJ, saying it’s on an upswing.
DA DON: Well to that I have one last thing, I’m a glass half full type of guy, I’m not a glass half empty. I think the guys who don’t see the music growing, their glass is half empty, not half full, that’s where I’m coming from. (he giggles)
THE HEAT: Before we get out of here, I just want to be one of the first to congratulate you on your up coming 2nd year Anniversary. May you and your lovely wife be blessed with many years in the riches of health, happiness, and prosperity and always walk in your journey together hand-in-hand.
DA DON: Thank you, I appreciate that and it’s a beautiful thing being married to the beautiful woman I have. Thank you Nik and The Heat for recognizing me and my continued efforts in radio supporting Blues/Southern Soul. It’s a great thing you guys are doing over there. Keep up the great work.

Tyrone “Da Don” Davis, congratulations on 40 years of giving us great Blues & Southern Soul music! Happy Anniversary!

Couple them with Pallo Da Jiint, now on No Limit Forever‘s roster, and Roi “Chip” Anthony, a prolific singer and producer, and it would be difficult, if not impossible, to top.
