For those of you who don’t know, Brooklyn native, rapper and CEO of Swavorland Entertainment H.I.M (Hi$tory In the Making) is back!!  You may know him from the dope rap duo H Squared consisting of H.I.M and Prince Hood. They have more collaborative music on the way but they’re both pursuing solo careers. Hi$tory H.I.M. is focused on his upcoming debut single along with his much anticipated project, S.O.L.O.

Lyvest Events : A Queens Day In !

By Dyme –

August 26th, Brand new event production start up, Indigo Aura Events, had it’s debut gathering! The title of this great event was “A Queens Day In”! A beautiful name for a beautiful cause. I was drawn to it because it’s purpose aligned directly with my biggest struggle – Balancing between personal life and business. The point was to provide an intimate getaway to enjoy drinks and pedicures/manicures by a hired professional.

Here’s a brief interview with the CEO Scarlet, telling more about herself and describing why she decided to do this event:

My favorite part? The drinks!! There were 2 bowls, one of sangria and the other with some sort of fruit infused wine. I loved it! Also at the top of my list was the energy in the room. I love going places that provide a positive and/or inspiring energy. Everyone was very supportive of the cause and of all Scarlets efforts. I even received a new book from one of the guests. I had to leave early so I didn’t get my nails done but I did receive a gift bag!

Shoutouts to Scarlet for organizing a nice gathering, the nail tech Dev Dujon @yanailtechdev for pampering the guests, as well as all of the guests and contributors. I look forward to the next one!

Beyond The Art – Johnnie Floss

Why did you decide to go by Johnnie Floss?
My producer gave me my name. He said it represents me because I’m flashy and charismatic. Plus he felt my previous name (Teflon John) didn’t fit me.
How do you feel about the current state of music in our city?
I think it’s in a pretty good space. Being a MC from Brooklyn I feel like their are a lot of us that’s relevant right now because of the quality of music and the consistency. Once you’re in you have to stay in so I think most of the artists are doing that at the moment.
How important would you say it is to make connections with other artist when it comes to doing music?
Very important. Networking is key and creating with other artists helps you become a better artists because each song and idea is different. You never know what someone else can bring out of you and us as artists should always want to elevate.

What is the biggest mistake you’ve made while pursuing your career and how did you learn from it?
I would say putting my career on hold for someone else. I was in a relationship a few years back and it took away from me a little because she really didn’t believe in my vision. So I focused on her thinking she was the one and now we’re not even together anymore.
If you could compare yourself to any established artist, who would it be and why?
I get either compared to early Jay-Z or Fabolous. I don’t know if it’s because I’m lyrical and from Brooklyn but I usually get compared to them.
What inspired your most recent single “Shut It Down”?
So I got a chance to meet Maino in Toronto and I always wanted to see what a record wit him would sound like because we’re both from Brooklyn yet we still represent two different worlds that’s in the same city.

What is your overall goal for your music?
My ultimate goal is to win a Grammy. When I do that, I’ll come up with another goal.
If you had to make a hit collab record for your favorite record label to sign you, who would you do it with and why? Can be indie or mainstream.
I like G.O.O.D. music over everybody else right now so I would have to say I would collab with Pusha T. Not only because he’s one of my favorites but because I don’t like the typical collabs and the fact that we represent two different styles I still think it would be dope because we’re both lyrical.
What do you think is the one thing you’re missing to get your big break?
A major backing. It’s hard doing this on your own without major help. Someone less talented than you can get heard quicker because of their help so I would say that’s what I’m missing. Either a major backing and/or a strong team.
Where can our readers find your music?

#NewMusicMondays – Kwoat – Ms Jackson

MEZANMI WOYYY!

So this video wasn’t officially user submitted per say…. However, after suffering through a few pretty undesirable visuals, we decided to take a break and submit a video we like from our supporters. It was as if it was calling out to us!

Kwoat is a dope Haitian music artist from the Flatbush area of Brooklyn. He is one of those upcoming music artists that you know is going to make it! From the variety in his sound to the visual quality of his music videos… he brings a breath of free air to a very saturated New York underground scene.

When you watch the video you will understand what Blaq and I consider a great visual from our previous feedback via this segment. The video starts off in a beautiful skyrise apartment in where I presume to be Manhattan. He and his … girlfriend? get into a disagreement about something she saw on his phone. The content of the song mostly relays to how he doesn’t intend to make her upset though he’s a player. As a female, the lyrics spoke to me in a “this is our generation, men have multiple women and like them all, get over it” type of manner. “Told myself I never break a heart again. But if I break another woman’s heart Ill be the man in this generation.”  Unfortunately, this is the world we live in, where a man is glorified for being a serial heart breaker. But I digress…

I’m saying though, Stussy and TMobile need to slide through with the check for the product promotion!  Anyway, the girl gets so upset that she leaves… and another girl shows up! Kwoat, you know you wrong for that lol. What’s funny is, this girl was just as beautiful as the first girl and the level of excitement he showed when he seen her made me forget all about the first girl. This video was so well put together and seemless… Make sure you contact Zurisaddai Nikko Corona Jr on Facebook so he can direct and shoot your next video!!

Oh yea and Kwoat? Make sure you follow his rise to success.. You’ll be real mad in the future if you don’t 😉 Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Lyvest Events Review – #BitchDrinks

WHERE DO I START?!!

So I officially met Chasity when I posted on FB looking for people to join me at a taping of Wild N Out in NYC. As we waited on line, she started telling us about a play she was helping with and invited us out to see it! When she explained it, I knew it sounded interesting but I NEVER expected it to be what it was…

First off, the location “Friends And Lovers” in Prospect Heights was genius. The front is a bar and the back is an open format room, which is where the play took place. The setting of the play was a bar after hours.  I met with a few friends there, one who saw the play the day prior, and the other who also did not know what to expect. Due to a random 8 minute rain storm, the play was delayed to accommodate anyone on their way. Upon entry, we were given front row seats, Thanks Chaz!

#BitchDrinks is about the many situations women endure daily. What I enjoyed most was the fact that the writing and delivery were extremely daring and unapologetic, all done in poetry. It touches on everything including sexuality, modern day feminism, social media, motherhood, sex, relationships, and more. The cast consists of 5 females: Sabrina, Elizabeth, Mone’t, Marie, and Jessica! They all played different aspects of their characters so the content varies. The show starts off with all of the women walking into a “bar”. They each have their own stories broken into about 16 different acts. The sparring comments and sarcastic exclamations from their cast mates in the background of their spotlight was purely comedic. This show was a must see for both men and women as it gives everyone an opportunity to see an honest side of women and forces you to see yourself in these struggles.

I decided to do this write up because I knew whether I liked it or not, I’d have something to say. Honestly, it really helped opened my mind and heart to come to terms with a lot of struggles I’m dealing with personally. I’d say more than anything it inspired me to go home and drink, though I didn’t get a chance to lol. The poets were amazing and the writing was on point. I was definitely surprised to hear that it was 2 years in the making. You all did an amazing job!

Thank you so much for the invitation, Chasity! It was definitely a great play, Phil & Ian. I look forward to the next one 😉
