HEAT MUSIC ANALYSIS FEATURE: Mystikal Pays Homage To The Godfather of Soul with single, Hit Me

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Mystikal Pays Homage To The Godfather of Soul with single, Hit Me

Elements of hip hop represent a synthesis at its best. The way of life we love to bask in is a scaffold starting with archetypical musicians that were born in the 19th and 20th century. Although naysayers sometimes attempt to shun the foundational fathers of African American urban music, it’s merely an impossibility to separate the model embedded within us from the earliest soul and funk records.
James Brown, an American icon and trendsetter truly earned his moniker, “The Godfather Of Soul”.
Years later below the Mason-Dixon Line, New Orleans gave birth to “The Black Prince Of The South”.
So what’s the point?
The energy level first seen in our legendary superstar Brown manifested within “the man right chea”: Mystikal. His unique voice accompanied by New Orleans heavyweight producers Cise (Precise) and KLC fused smoothly with his repetitive ability to leave listeners and audiences in awe with catchy, comical tongue-twisting lyrics.
After years of success starting with Big Boy Records and No Limit Records, Mystikal is back on the scene.
So what’s this article about?
Mystikal’s ability to not only indirectly emulate the “Godfather of Soul” while still maintaining his uniqueness and originality, but his accountability as a creative. If one is really a hip hop connoisseur, then he will always pay homage to the roots of his craft.
Mystikal does a great job in representing and honoring the late James Brown with a KLC produced single, “Hit Me,” earning him a spot on the Rolling Stone Top 100 songs list of 2013.
The Heat Magazine wanted to point out this foreshadowing single as the world gets a closer look at the life of James Brown in the newly released blockbuster film, Get On Up. Be sure to check out the film and educate yourself on Brown who was a gem in American Music.

Is this James Brown reincarnated? Well James Brown did say he can “Dig Rappin'”

Bring An Innocent Man Home: Free Mac (No Limit Rap Icon)

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

The Heat Magazine wanted to update you on the latest information concerning American rap icon Mac.
McKinley Phipps (Mac) reached high levels of success while signed to Master P’s No Limit Records.
Things went awry leading to his unlawful incarceration and conviction in 2001. Since then, Mac’s family and support system have fought endlessly to exonerate him. Although it may seem mundane because the words “Free This One” or “Free That One” or often utilized out of context, Mac is an innocent man.
Mac wants the family of the victim to know that he did not commit the crime. The Heat Magazine recently discovered new ways that supporters can assist in the liberation of Mac. “Bring Mac Home”, is a website where one can make a donation. Each donation is a contribution towards Mac’s legal fund. For more information, visit http://www.youcaring.com/other/bring-mac-home-/152427
Additionally, Mac “The Lost Tapes” is available online. Therefore, each purchase helps Mac. Download here:

In an effort to “bring an innocent man home”, The Heat Magazine wanted to make our readers aware. Free Mac!

(EXCLUSIVE) PALLO DA JIINT: No Limit Forever (VIDEO)

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

In the 1990’s, a musical dynasty rose to power – one that was responsible for catapulting many New Orleans area music artists and industry professionals into the limelight. Though many of the artists signed to No Limit Records were already regionally known, the label caused those “No Limit Soldiers” to become internationally known troops.

To this day, those artists put out some of the most memorable music ever to be heard and they most definitely helped shape and put the stamp on Down South music.

The “colonel” of the original No Limit Records was none other than Percy “Master P” Miller himself, who built the label from the ground up. The label has been rebuilt and remixed and is now known as No Limit Forever, with the reigns being handed over to Master P’s son, popular entertainer Romeo Miller. Together with his team, No Limit Forever is rising to the next level.

No Limit Forever is coming with new artists, new material and a fresh new look, as they prepare to take 2012 by storm. Its lineup includes a lot of new faces, as well as underground legend and New Orleans native, Pallo Da Jiint.

Pallo Da Jiint has been a sought after artist for quite some time, having done features with countless legends. Part of underground hit group, Street Runners, Pallo parlayed his talent into quite a successful indie career. His talent really came to light following Hurricane Katrina, when he was featured on one of the most heartfelt Katrina dedications, “Long Way From Home” by Roi “Chip” Anthony. Anthony is a veteran in the music industry and when those two came together on that song, it was musical magic. For anybody who experienced Katrina or was close to the situation, it was an accurate expression of what it truly was to “miss” New Orleans.

To say Pallo Da Jiint is a busy man these days, is quite an understatement. The Heat slowed Pallo down long enough to get an interview – here’s what he had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell our readers who Pallo Da Jiint is?

PALLO DA JIINT: Pallo Da Jiint aka Giant – yesssiiiirrrr! I’m a native of New Orleans’ Mid City/Carrolton Avenue area. Can’t say much, but I am New Orleans to the tenth power. To the readers that know, I was born at Hotel Dieu Hospital. That pretty much rapp that up. I’m strong, driven and determined and wit a swagger like “whoa” – now it’s a rapp!!!

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What new projects are you currently working on?

PALLO DA JIINT: Well, back in 2011, I was working on my second solo indie album, “Better Believe It”, That Street Runner Life! But, I got pleasantly interrupted by my now boss “Master P” and “Roi Chip Anthony” to pack up and let’s make history speech, so guess what I did? Pulled the plug on the indie work and got ready for the majors. Master P flew me and Chip to L.A. and let me loose in the Batcave and now, we’re gettin ready to drop multiple major mixtapes, for one – the Master P Mixtape “TMZ” – Too Many Zeroes. I have a record on there called “DUMBSH%*” that’s beating the streets up rite now. This movement gonna turn the Hip Hop scene in and out. My mixtape titled, “Dat Heat Rock” My Whip Game Sick will be droppin in the spring. Let me tell ya – SMH to the old and get ready for the new 2012 is No Limit Forever Time. Sorry Rap Game for the interruption. Like they say, “What goes around come back like Holidays and Birthdays!”


THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What new projects are you currently working on? How does it feel to be on board with the new version of what was one of the greatest labels ever?

PALLO DA JIINT: All I can say about my No Limit Forever Fam is like how the fans feel – to enjoy the endless projects, movies, tours, clothing, television show, BBTV Network – about anything you can imagine in entertainment from us from 2012 on. As to how I feel – one word – “Blessed” – that all the work and sacrifice I put in for years, finally came around to help create the Biggest Comeback in Hip Hop History. In my Master P voice, “I Can Smell The Money” until I have “TMZ” – too many zeroes. Leggo!!!

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Growing up, who were your musical influences?

PALLO DA JIINT: For me, New Orleans rap artists from 1988-2001, from Master P of course, Gregory D to Pimp Daddy, Magnolia Slim, Lokee, U.N.L.V, and R.I.P to my homie, Tim Smooth, and the ones who started and influenced the two biggest labels in the Hip Hop game from New Orleans – No Limit Forever  and Cash Money Records. There’s not a person from anywhere in the country – better yet the world – who hasn’t heard music from any one of these labels. Now, if that’s not influence, I don’t know what is!!!

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: As we understand it, you’re very multi-faceted. Also, you’ve done features with a lot of legends – tell us about that.

PALLO DA JIINT: As for me, I’m not just an artist. I also produce, engineer, do computer graphics, video editing, promotion including concert promoting, and I’m also an actor. I’ve worked with a lot of entertainers. To name a few, the whole entire No Limit Fam, Master P, Lil Wayne, BG, Magnolia Chop, B Real, the Late Great Pimp C, and my brother from another mother “Roi Chip Anthony”, just to name a few!!!

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What can we expect to see from you in the next several years?

PALLO DA JIINT: What you can expect from me? Street Runner Music and No Limit Forever is History being made – a whole new breath of fresh air, filling the void that’s been missing in Hip Hop, RnB, Pop – in the ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY PERIOD!!! 2012 is here now. It’s time to change the game!!! NLF………………………

CONVERSATION WITH A LEGEND: Fiend a/k/a International Jones

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Cool is definitely in session when Fiend's around

“Stay straight baby. Stay straight. It’ll all make sense one day. Forget the prestige – Congo Square in the flesh.” – Fiend

It was 1995, the year that the world would come to know rapper, Fiend. Having released his first album, “I Won’t Be Denied”, on Big Boy’s label, Fiend was well on his way.

Two years later, he signed with No Limit Records and the rest as they say, is history. Fiend’s lyrics will forever be etched into our memories, as they are deep and thought provoking. His lyrical skills are most definitely on another level.

Fiend is now currently touring with Curren$y and quite a few other popular artists on the Smokers’ Club Tour – a move that is taking his brand around the globe.

Fiend made numerous appearances on No Limit features and in several instances, took them over like they were custom written and produced for him. His second album, “There’s One in Every Family” was a bonified hit and has become a solid classic. It made it to the top spot on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop chart and in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 – quite a feat for a New Orleans rapper of that era. “Street Life” also debuted at the top of Billboard’s charts, as he introduced another hit to the world. “Walk Like A G” is a classic street anthem to this day and is even more memorable because of his collaboration with the late New Orleans legend Soulja Slim. “Can I Ball” and “Shell Shocked”, duos with Mac, are two more Fiend hits that will forever live in the streets and beyond. The list is truly endless.

Fiend was one of the legendary artists who helped lay the groundwork for the genre. He’s worked with artists from Mia X, Mac, Mystikal, C-Murder, Silkk That Shocker, Mr. Serv-On, Three-6 Mafia, and Master P to Snoop Dogg and UGK to the late legends Soulja Slim and Tim Smooth. Fiend has added the title of producer to his already impressive resume.

We recently caught up with Fiend on the heels of the first part of the Smokers’ Club Tour, which is set to pick back up on October 12, 2011 and also includes Curren$y, Method Man, Big Krit, Smoke DZA, The Pricks, Corner Boy P, and others.

Fiend filled us in on his latest projects, and he dropped some knowledge on us about the industry:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How’s the tour going?

FIEND: It’s getting ready to crank back up on October 12th. We’re just getting back from ATL. Good people, good times. Good times, good vibes. Because of Curren$y, a lot of the younger fans are familiar. He helped get downloads of the mixtapes. Many of the kids are aware of me through Curren$y.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What’s your latest project?

FIEND: It’s “Cool Is In Session” – it dropped 7/28/11. I’m trying to drop a new mixtape every two months. I hope the drop the next one on 9/14/11. The most recent one was a little late, but I hope to drop a mixtape every other month.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: We have several NOUE affiliated artists that cited you as having a huge influence on their careers. What advice do you have for the younger artists in the industry?

FIEND: Learn the business. You have to learn the business. Go sit in somebody’s library or somewhere and learn the business. Have a plan and execute it. You can be in the studio and waste hours, days, months, or even years, and if you don’t have a plan …. If you learn the business, you get the most of out of the experience. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You gotta out hustle cats. It takes structure to get serious and you better know what you’re selling. You gotta stay consistent. Somebody once told me, “Ricky, have some prestige about yourself. Don’t be a whore for the business. Don’t jump at everything.”

THE HEAT MAGAZINE:: What do you think about the newly formed New Orleans Union for Entertainment – the N.O.U.E.?

FIEND: It’s a nice movement. We lacked organization and structure in the hip hop scene. You have to know what you’re working on. New Orleans has a lot of talented artists – rare artifacts for real – but the music scene hasn’t’ progressed due to a lack of structure. Culture year round in New Orleans – Congo Square in rap form. Maybe one day they’ll get it.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE:: What are your thoughts on the loss of a legend, Tim Smooth?

FIEND: Tim Smooth was the big brother for Down South artists. He saw the talent and helped nurture that talent. He will really be missed. Lord knows what his family is going through right now. I can only imagine. Tim was one of those cats – whether he was on the road, in the studio, or just in life, he always helped out in crunch times. He was the only man who had been there a lot. He was a hip hop big brother, no doubt, and he’ll be greatly missed. He’ll be greatly missed. God has a plan. Tim was just another soul that left entirely too young. Tim Smooth helped me through some tough times on some real life ish.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How do you see the music industry evolving?

FIEND: You gotta stay consistent. I’m dropping an album every two months. People know what they want now and they’ll go straight to it. I make music and go from there and I’m interested to see where it goes. A lot of music is overlooked. It aint’t easy, but God is great. I get up and keep going at it. There’s more to the music I’m making. It’s packaged well and has a message in it. Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Is there any other work you’d like to get into?

FIEND: Movies – cartoons and voiceover work. I would love to narrate. That would be cool and I’d still be making the music.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We salute Fiend and look forward to hearing much more from him. He is a legend whose music continues to evolve. Make sure to check out the Smokers Club Part 2 and his new releases. Visit Dat Piff for downloads of Fiend’s mixtapes: Dat Piff downloads
