Fourth Quarter Buzz on New Orleans Music Scene-Special Review

Music industry during the fourth quarter (October-Dec) can often create greatness unexpectedly.  In recent years, a resurgence among urban artists in New Orleans is evident.  Within the overload of information via internet and the need for instant gratification, some New Orleans/Louisiana artists have remained rooted in the essentials of classic rap music. As we put our ear to the streets  among the indies, The Heat Magazine wanted to share some of the latest  action within the Crescent City’s and Louisiana music community.

Rue Rois Artists Da U Boys recently dropped The Last Dynasty, a mix tape that speaks volumes related to the essence of realism and classic era rap emerging from the streets of New Orleans.  Be sure to add this one to your collection.

Shortly after, they win Hottest Album at the NOLA Underground Hip Hop Awards ceremony held in October at the Joy Theater in New Orleans.

In addition, Zero to Sixty Entertainment artists “Youngest 1’s” continue to create regional hits from “She Knows” to “Babu”.  The group continues to tour the region while working on their latest mixtape, “Cocked and Loaded.”  Youngest 1’s also gained “Hottest Group” award at the recent award ceremony in New Orleans. Make certain to include this group’s latest creations in your collection.

 Original Ice Mike 1200 recently created a monster track for my new single “Why Yo?” which is taking off among dj pools and radio stations across the region.  The legendary producer maintains his fire power in the production arena and continues to display a strong work ethic creating mixtapes while working on his latest collaboration, NOBS.  Stay on the look out and up to date with his latest installments in the industry.

Ghetto Twiinz and 3D Natee

Recent Nola Underground Hip Hop Awards Lifetime Achievement recipients, The Ghetto Twiinz, have created a strong  collaboration with hot lyricist 3D Natee “Bloodline.”  Be sure to check out and download the heater.  The ladies are holding their own and maintaining a raw sound.  3D Natee was awarded Best Lyricist among other honors at the award gathering.
