#0017th drops ‘Ali’ single to wide acclaim

Friday, July 11th, 2014

The force known as #0017th has done it again – this time, with the release of the highly anticipated “Ali” single. They will be dropping the video, filmed in Hollygrove, in the very near future. To say this single has been released to wide acclaim is putting it mildly.

The #0017th members debuted the song last night during a live interview on New Orleans‘ world famous Q93 FM, while being interviewed by DJ Slab 1. It is available for streaming/download on Soundcloud and it’s already garnered over 20,000 streams and hundreds of downloads. The single is available for purchase on iTunes. Produced by KC, “Ali” features Kango Slimm, 1/2 of the legendary group Partners-N-Crime (PNC). It also showcases the lyrical talent offered up by #0017th, in the form of group members acclaimed producer Nesby Phips, Reem, Hollygrove Mikey, and Jay Jones. It will be featured on Hollygrove Mikey’s upcoming mixtape entitled “The Ca$hius Clay Tape”. Anybody whose ever heard Mikey spit, will know exactly what this means – a mixtape from one of the greatest of all time. The #0017th Movement is backed by endless merchandising and they are most definitely masters at branding. One look at Instagram and Twitter are proof positive of that – their brand is EVERYWHERE.

This is without a doubt, the hottest single of the summer! Go support these Hollygrove originals & purchase “Ali”!

A Closer Look at the Hottest Movement in New Orleans: New Orleans Union For Entertainment(1 Yr. and Counting)

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Sample Artwork designed by Brandon Brumfield


Systematically, it is normal for top music industry stakeholders in particular markets to consolidate current music releases and forward it to the masses within that market.  Bloggers, deejay pools, well-known  producers and deejays, journalists, and radio personalities are responsible for delivering new music to the audience.  Although this is an effective model, some areas often have a slower movement related to the advancement of music as a whole within their area.






A year ago, New Orleans stakeholders addressed that concern by developing a music union, New Orleans Union For Entertainment.  Within one year, ten releases via mix tapes have been presented locally and nationally online.

 Several articles have been written by Arlene Culpepper of The Heat Magazine, and music has been added to rotation on by Legendary Dj Erv.  Original Ice Mike 1200 has mixed  several independent artists’ mix tapes, and also released his individual mixtape series, High Definition, via Coast 2 Coast mixtapes.  Bigg Ramp has spread the word regionally with his executive Christopher Roberts of  Phat Phat N All That.  Socialite and community activist Kali Red has promoted NOUE within the southeast region also.  The movement is equipped with a multitude of services including LaJoan Williams of Dream Management who offers email marketing, management services, etc.

Now with a NOUE solidified movement, KCRR, owned by Charlie Martin, a NOUE member, just added a new radio show featuring Cise HD. Cise HD,  a well known producer from New Orleans responsible for production on Mystikal, Ghetto Twiinz, and other classic New Orleans releases, adds another dimension, “The Hot Boy Radio Show” to NOUE.

As it relates to artist development, a cast of hot growing artists have branded or added to their name and sound.  Majesty Sozey, Redd, Marcy, Da U Boys, Youngest 1s, Jack Spratt, Jay Jones, TNC Boys, L.A.W., Choice Rhymez, Phat Coast Records, ViGi and Trinidad, Young Torrento, Hoghead Productions, Ape Squad Divaz, Bruce Lee Roy, and others have etched their insignia on the New Orleans scene and the mixtape circuit internationally via NOUE.  Accompanied by veteran artists such as Partners N Crime, UNLV, Ms. Tee, Bigg Ramp, Mr. Serv On, Juvenile,UTP  Skip, Lil Cali,  Fiend, Kunta Fly Snooka, Currensy, Ice Mike, Sess 4 5, Ghetto Twiinz, Devious, and more, the NOUE All Stars have become a mainstay within the industry.

“Heart of The City” , NOUE’s  anniversary edition mix tape,  represents the deeper meaning of the union which is to “collectively advance.”  As the release date nears, NOUE continues to realize the vision that true New Orleans artists share which is to preserve and promote the heart of New Orleans urban  talent locally and abroad. New Orleans Union For Entertainment has been in operation since June of 2011 and has quickly developed over a short period of time in hope of a more productive music scene in New Orleans.

Getting to Know Mista Meana of Partners N Crime

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Life has a way of causing humans to perceive each other in ways that are sometimes a bit off centered.  In the entertainment field, it is quite a challenge to distinguish the true character of a star.  Due to the mysterious element that constantly grows as an artist reaches higher heights, some media companies and lay citizens often create their own definition of who an artist really is.  Detrimental or not, the buzz keeps spreading.  Generalizations and stereotypes continue and some questions remain unanswered.  The Heat Magazine places great enthusiasm on delivering in-depth interviews which accentuate the “realism” in the stars that share their business endeavors with us.  We had an opportunity to build a stronger relationship with Mr. Meana and get a closer look at his life, journey, and upcoming music.  With enormous success as one half of the acclaimed rap group, Partners -N- Crime, The Heat wanted to see what was on Meana’s mind and agenda.

The Heat Magazine: What’s your latest work that we can look forward to?

Mista Meana: Well my latest work is titled “WHO SAY I CANT RAP”.  It consists of 24 songs.   It is giving my audience a clear side of who I am as MISTA MEANA and no PNC haven’t broke up. (laughing out loud)

The Heat Magazine: What can we expect from, ‘Who Say I Cant Rap’?

Mista Meana: On this project you can expect my views on life as I see it from all levels: street, spiritual, clever, and witty side. I have a song with my 10 year old daughter AMARI on a song called “ROCK WIT US”. I also got my HITZ INTERNATIONAL fam on board. Outside of that I have JUVENILE on my single track with this up and coming star WHIT BANKS. It’s a well rounded mixtape but people that have heard it say that  it should be an album.

The Heat Magazine: As a member of Partners N Crime, how have you guys been able to remain successful and grow musically?

Mista Meana: Well me  and Kango are like brothers and we always put God first in all our endeavors. We respect each others boundaries and we allow each other their own space to create.

The Heat Magazine: Who inspires you as an artist?
Mista Meana: Any artist that’s CREATIVE and DIFFERENT. I love creativity straight up!!!!!!!

The Heat Magazine:
Since we’re on creativity, What’s your favorite dish?
Mista Meana: Red beans and rice with baked chicken (you know I gotta throw the chicken in it lol) and some fresh veggies.  BAM!
The Heat Magazine: How do you feel about education?
Mista Meana: Education is big because knowing is half the battle. The more you LEARN the more you GROW, education ain’t something just for our kids. It’s something we all should continue to seek. REMEMBER knowledge is power people.
The Heat Magazine: What’s your take on relationships and the music business?
Mista Meana: Well this MUSIC BUSINESS is built off RELATIONSHIPS. In this business today: who you know that they know so we can get this done. “BUSINESS” in a nutshell and RELATIONSHIPS make that happen.  BAM (laughing out loud)
The Heat Magazine: What advice would you give upcoming artists?
Mista Meana: Grind and stay FOCUSED on the prize and remember to put God first before moving. Try to continue to move forward even through all rejects, but remain POSITIVE throughout your STRUGGLES and you can make this a career.
The Heat Magazine: How do you feel about the current state of the music industry?
Mista Meana: I love where the music business is right now.  I didn’t a year ago, because I didn’t fully understand the change the business took when they left analog and went digital. But now that I overstand the nature of the business,  I can move much better now and so can any artist that is dedicated to making this out of a career.
The Heat Magazine: What makes Mista Meana so unique?

Mista Meana: I’mma  realist, I stand on what I believe to be real or what you would call reality.  I seek the truth and stand behind it and let that be my armor and God be my shield.

The Heat Magazine: Where are you from?

Mista Meana: I’m from my mothers womb (laughing out loud), but I claim HOLLYGROVE home of the best RAPPERS and you read it right RAPPERS with a “S”. (laughing out loud)
The Heat Magazine: What’s the biggest lesson you have learned in life or in music?

Mista Meana: That everything you see ain’t always what it is. Remember LIFE is the teacher we are just STUDENTS  in the class. And MUSIC is my LIFE.  It lets my voice LIVE FOREVER.

The Heat Magazine: I understand that you spend a lot of time in the studio and handling business affairs with HITZ International, what’s in the future for you as an executive?

Mista Meana: To make every ARTIST I work with MILLIONAIRES and more. More meaning becoming the best people they can BE.
The Heat Magazine: How do you feel about the New Orleans Saints?
The Heat Magazine:
How important is having balance in life?
Mista Meana:
Balance is harmony when dealing with LIFE because everything in your life needs attention or it dies.  The more you put on your plate, the more you gotta digest.  Then you wonder why you have heartburn. (Laughing out loud)
The Heat Magazine:
With the latest surge of violence in New Orleans, tell us how you feel about it.
Mista Meana:
MURDER IS BAD FOR BUSINESS. It’s BAD for our NEIGHBORHOODS, It’s BAD for our FAMILIES, It’s BAD for our PEOPLE as a WHOLE. If we learn to HATE the right things like I HATE MURDER, then and only then will this MURDER SPIRIT STOP. We must COMMAND it to not ASK it to.
The Heat Magazine:
What’s your definition of a group and loyalty?
Mista Meana:
A group is FAMILY. It’s two or more people sharing the EXACT same vision. It’s like they see themselves as one. Loyalty is a given if you plan to be a GROUP.
The Heat Magazine:
As a family man, tell us about some of your proud moments.
Mista Meana:

Meeting my beautiful wife and the births of all my wonderful daughters.  GOD is GOOD ALL  OF THE TIME.
Mista Meana’s mixtape is scheduled to be released March 21st.  The Heat Magazine will provide more information in the near future.
