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!

Lyvest Events : BARZ II Cypher

By Dyme –

On August 11, WDIB Ent and H2O Music collaborated to host another dope installment of their cypher series named “BARZ”! Of course LyveLyfeRadio popped up to cover the event.

Upon arrival at the private studio location, there were already a few of the participants and spectators seated. In addition, there was a caterer with an assortment of Caribbean and American soul food and I heard there was alcohol on sale. Music for the night was provided by DJ G-Money.

I missed the first cypher but the second & main events had a few dope rappers apart of them. Some of them included Chrissy Bandz, Grafh, Josh Jacobs, ARNSTAR, and Johnnie Floss. However, at one point, there was one guy who could not get past the first bar of his verse. As entertaining as it was, I do think they should’ve cut him off to let him regroup himself after the 3rd try. In my opinion the best lyricist of the night was one of the female rappers, whose name I don’t know! There was definitely a lot of BARZ and talent in that room.

Check out this recap of the first cypher of the night. Provided by: East Coast Confidentials!

#NewMusicMondays: Smoove Boy Jay

This week’s review is a double hitter. Artist Smoove Boy Jay released the video for his “Chill Bill Remix” this past April and was also featured in Severe Jones’ “Feel So Right” video.

So let’s start with the “Chill Bill Remix” which is actually a freestyle to Rob $tone’s “Chill Bill” from summer 2015. The video starts with a slide of the first amendment, pretty cool I guess, I’m not completely sure what it had to do with the video exactly. But I’m all about getting a message across so cool! The video continues with Smoove Boy Jay in a park….and that’s about it! Not much to really say, the video quality was good. There were points in the video where I thought I was watching one of those old Kung Fu movies since the vocals didn’t match the video when he was mouthing the words. But then again what do you really want in a video for a freestyle. Not the best but definitely not the worst.

The second video with Severe Jones looked like the duo was having a lot of fun. The good vibes and chemistry between these two artist is what gives this video it’s entertainment value. However like the first video there was only one scene. I think the video could have had more locations or even some WOMEN!!! I mean…judging by the title I just really expected to see some women… Ok ok, we all know I might just be a little biased with the last request. But seriously, overall a good video just more locations next time guys (and possibly some females).

New Music Mondays! JR JustReal – Invisible

Welcome to “New Music Mondays”! This is LyveLyfeRadio.com’s first recurring segment where Dyme and DJ Blaq Bully will be reviewing underground & independent artists music videos. Doing this one a little late at night but better late than never right?…

Icmg/2 Deep recording artist JR JustReal released a video mid-January to his single “Invisible”. This video was directed by Tony Picaso and produced by Ppmg Hitmand. I’ve seen him around performing at numerous music events around New York City and have become a fan of his sound.  So I was definitely excited when I saw JR’s submission for our review. Not only is the artist good, but I’m also a big supporter of the video director (Painted by Picaso) so I already pre-judged the visuals before I watched it, lol.

The basis is a heartfelt song of how he feels invisible to his girlfriend and plans to leave her because she doesn’t give him attention. It gives me an early 2000s RnB feel, think Bobby Valentino or Sammie. It starts with JR and his “girlfriend” having a disagreement about her going out with her friends rather than spending time with him when he returns from the studio. She mentions that doing music doesn’t bring home a check. Rude! Then the video is mainly scenes of her on her phone when they are together in the room, her getting cozy with a guy in the hallway, and of JR outside singing his heart out. The video is actually very simple, not too much content, not too many scenes and very easy to digest as the viewer.

What would I change about it? Don’t really think I’d change anything. I think the song is cute. I’m very easily attracted to bright colors and chaotic scenes but this is one of those chill joints you play when you’re breaking up with your boo because they messed up! So it doesn’t call for much more than presented.

Random: So I don’t know if you all caught this but the curtain in the room says Goodnight! Comment below if you saw it!

This is the first single from his LP titled “Reality Check”. Follow @_IamJust_Real on Instagram and Twitter. You can check out the video below. Make sure you tell us your thoughts in the comments section:

Make sure you come back next week to read up on another video and tune in every Thursday 8-10pm on WVMRadio.net 😉
