BlaqnMild

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.

HEAT EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Big Boy Records 247 on brink of releasing Young Gabe’s album

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

The law of attraction suggests that positive energy begets positive energy.  According to record mogul Charles Temple (Chucc) of Big Boy Records, the foundation for most of New Orleans premier hip hop artists such as Mystikal, Black Menace, Sporty T., Fiend, Partners N Crime, Ghetto Twiinz, G Slimm, Insane, and more, it’s wise to let music speak for itself. “When it’s hot, they came looking for us and we still believe in that concept.”  As the release of Young Gabe’s album nears, The Heat Magazine had the opportunity to interview the newest face at Big Boy Records.

Any music writer can regurgitate the greatness that exists within the biography and discography of Big Boy Records, but The Heat Magazine wants our readers to stay in the know with the latest developments.  Big Boy Records 247 represents a new twist on the reputable brand while Chucc, Cise HD (Precise), and Young Gabe continue to shake up the music industry daily with cerebral ideas that ultimately cater to their listeners. In short, Big Boy Records is back and they are working earnestly “247”.  Peep out the in-depth heart-to-heart interview.

The Heat Magazine: How long have you been professionally rapping?

Young Gabe

Young Gabe: Since High School.

The Heat Magazine: What type of artists inspire you?

Young Gabe: Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie, etcetera.

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

Young Gabe: To be the best rapper that ever done it and I want my music to reach the world.

The Heat Magazine: Who are the producers  you are working with?

Young Gabe: The best producers to ever do it: Niyo Da Vinci (Flight School), Beat Doctor, Cali Aseeduse and last but not least the best to ever do it  with record sales.  (Grossing 20,000,000) D.J. Leroy “Precise” Edwards.

The Heat Magazine: Tell us about your hobbies.

Young Gabe: White Water Rafting, skydiving, and skiing.

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

Young Gabe: “Daddy Money”.YOUNGGABECOVERART3

The Heat Magazine: Describe your style.

Young Gabe: I am unpredictable. I can do anything. I can sing, rap, and dance.

The Heat Magazine: What separates you from others?

Young Gabe: My team.  I’m in my own lane. I surround myself with the best to ever do this.

The Heat Magazine: Tell us the name of any of your other releases?

Young Gabe: Young Gabe Feat. Jay Dawg – Money.

The Heat Magazine: Share some of  your current performances or features.

Young Gabe: I have performed with artists such as Cam’Ron, Freeway, Kevin Gates, Ghetto Twiinz, Ludacris, Young Joc, T-Pain, Baby Boy, Curren$y, Juvenile, Mystikal, Cali Aseeduse, Gimini and Fiend. Some of the featured artists are Juvenile, K Gates, Philadelphia Freeway, Greedi, Mystikal, Skip, CiseHD, Cali Aseeduse, and Franchise Tief.

The Heat Magazine: Do you have any other plans as an artist?

Young Gabe: Yeah,  acting and finding hot talent.

The Heat Magazine: Big Boy Records was very instrumental in the development of the New Orleans hip hop movement.  Tell us about your relationship with Charles “Chucc” Temple.

Young Gabe: I met him at the Avondale Shipyard scaffolding on ships.  He taught me how to weld and scaffold on ships for the Navy and from that point on we have been like brothers.  We opened up a  clothing store “247 Fashions and Street Dreams Apparel” after Hurricane Katrina back in 05. We also hooked back up with Cise and opened up Big Boy Records 247.

The Heat Magazine:  Chucc, could you share your vision with our readers?

Chucc: Basically, I have been sitting back for over 20 years watching the music game. Nobody has really took it to the next level as a record company in New Orleans since Cash Money and No Limit. A lot of cats have records but many don’t have record companies. Big Boy didn’t have anyone to learn from when we first started.  We were our own worst enemy. The game owes me and Cise and we’re not going to stop.

The Heat Magazine: I understand that it’s more to Chucc and Cise than being CEO’s.  Tell us about it if you don’t mind.

Chucc: Cise and I participate in the creative process with our artists. We work day and night to help make our artists hot and pull the best out of them. We’ve always been apart of the creative process even though we didn’t always get or take credit for it.

The Heat Magazine: Could you tell us about working with Young Gabe.

Chucc: Gabe is the easiest and most open minded artist I’ve worked with.  Not to take away from any of the other artists I’ve worked with.  I can’t put it into words but Gabe is giving it to you from the first song to the end.  He’s very talented and you can’t fake talent. Either you have it or you don’t.  That’s the business.

The Heat Magazine: Young Gabe how has living in New Orleans impacted your music?

Young Gabe: New Orleans has granted me the opportunity to become the artist I am today. With that being said, its grants me the opportunity to inspire other artists right here in their own backyard. The impact New Orleans have on me is expressed through my music.

The Heat Magazine: How important is education to you?

Young Gabe: Education is very important I must say. I graduated from high school with honors and also completed two years of college. Actually my music career has affected my education.

The Heat Magazine: How do you feel about the community?

Young Gabe: My community, the black community,  I just dislike the fact we were taught how to hate and never learned how to love. Welcome to New Orleans. I will do whatever it takes to help better our kids in the New Orleans school district as my music becomes accepted by the world.  I would start with helping to better education for our school system by providing better books and computers. My goals are to start a Daddy Money Foundation to help single parents and under privileged children.  I had a dream of destiny and right now I live that dream today.

The Heat Magazine Welcomes ‘Se7en’ to Our Staff

SE7EN - 504 TO THE BONE ..... & BEYOND

The Heat Magazine continues to grow its family.  Earlier today, The Heat announced the inclusion of TayloreB as our Special Correspondent and one of the co-hosts of The Heat radio show that broadcasts every Saturday night at 9 p.m. EST. on the Global Rhythymz Radio Network.

The Heat is pleased to announce yet another edition to our family, Mr. Cornel “Sevyn” Johnson a/k/a Se7ven. The Heat Magazine is honored to work with this multi-talented artist and we are proud to introduce him to The Heat’s family of followers.

Se7en does his own thing so be on the lookout for quality posts that exude “Motivation” at every turn.  He is a true celebrity in the making, so make sure you check him out now as he rides the magic carpet of success to super stardom.

In fact, if you missed our feature in our Motivation 101 section earlier today, here’s the perfect quote to describe Se7en –taken directly from our feature:  “You know you have the ear of the streets and beyond when you have so many followers that you need multiple Facebook pages just to accommodate the page hits you receive in a day’s time.  You also know you have that kind of pull when people hang on your every word and anxiously await the next post.  And so it is with New Orleans’ own, Corneal Sevyn Johnson, or as his followers know him, “SE7EN”.  SE7EN is an author, poet and businessman, but most importantly, a loving father to his daughters. SE7EN came to the attention of The Heat Magazine’s upper management after one of his loyal Facebook friends suggested we check him out and what he has been doing for his community.  We did so nearly right away and let’s just say, we were not disappointed.  In fact, we made it a point to get with SE7EN so we could see what this hype is really about – and now we know.”

The Heat Magazine looks forward to a long and prosperous relationship with both of our new additions and we are confident that our family will be entertained, fascinated and proud to be a part of our The Heat Movement that is overtaking the worldwide airwaves and becoming a digital media force to be reckoned with ….. The Heat – be a part of it!

A Rising Star For Certain
