CLOUD9TV PRESENTS “MONEY & VIOLENCE”

I began watching Money & Violence in the summer of 2014 simply because I had come across it on youtube. I began watching then fell off and couldn’t seem to keep on schedule with the shows. At one point I couldn’t remember what I searched initially to get there. However, thanks to the Breakfast Club I found my new favorite web series again.

 

When I first began watching, I thought that this is like reading one of the really dope urban novels. I went in not expecting oscar worthy performances or the best quality camera, but was met with decent acting [especially those Jamaican yuh wan me fi observe lol] and not too bad camera action. So from the door I was like aight this should be good. Not trying to judge the production too much without reviewing it all, I began to focus on the story line. I heard “It’s like The Wire in Brooklyn” and I felt like it was in the same genre, but not a carbon copy. It was actually the most riveting web series I’ve ever seen. From the way Rafe moves like a boss, to the way Miz is super impulsive, even down to the way Tai AND his sister Shay are the same kind of snakes. This makes you take a look at your own hood, everyone has the old heads that drop gems but pull power moves in the night like Rafe and Miz. I love the depth of these two characters. I love how they are both strong independently and have the ability and confidence to coexist in the same street. I believe that whether rich or poor, these characters would still demand respect. With a climate of characters that change every scene, the authenticity and relatability is on 100! Money and Violence shows the intricacies of living and working on the streets, but still sends positive messages to the people. The message that was consistent for me is to stay in your lane. However, the creators of this show didn’t stay in their lane, they became lane creators.

I give the show 5 stars and I cannot wait for the next episode. If you want to binge watch Money and Violence  you can check it out on http://www.cloud9tv.net/en/ also visit their youtube channel and make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a show.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQQJ1zCsFOxBuulIGUBGDfw

TRINIDAD JAMES PLANS INDIE ALBUM?

“Can I blow some kush up out the roof, reflect on my life  and speak a real nigga truth, Can I blow some kush up out the roof, look up to the sky and tell God I’m the truth!” Trinidad James has been a dope artist from day one and now just dropped his EP The Wake Up! He is already giving the fans something to anticipate as he announces a full length FREE album on January 20th entitled No One Is Safe, Whether it was his intent to blow, he has! Even without the record label supporting his efforts, he is fast becoming a major indie artist. He is making it clear that major backing in this day in age is completely unnecessary. His release of Black Man pt. 2 [no there isn’t a pt 1] is completely about starting over but doing it HIS way. This song is him predicting his “come back” as an independent artist.

INTRODUCING GAEL BOOM

I love when I speak with another gifted vocalist because it inspires me to better. I talked with Gael Boom, who has thousands of views on his cover of Brandy’s Put It Down, and this is his story.

 

 Where are you from? Where did your name originate?

I’m Originally from Africa (The Republic Democratic of congo) n lived in Toulouse (France). My 1st name is French and it means joy.

How would you describe your music?

My music is positive and Very Unique. It’s more than just a song, it’s the message

Who were your childhood influences?

Grew up listening to alotta Usher, Smokie Norful and Fred Hammond. Now I got introduced to Brandy and I love her music

-what is your first experience with music?

I started as a musician, taught myself how to play the keyboard and the drum at the age of 10 and then started singing 5 years later

-what type of music did you listen to? 

Pop, Rnb, Zook n Gospel

Why did you decide to pursue your music? 

I decided to pursue music because every time I go to a show, church or a concert, just seeing people on stage performing, I could picture myself on their position and I just knew it was something I really wanted to do

What can the people expect from your music?

Live performance?

They should expect a great and inspiring music n my goal is to create a new genre of music

Thinking back what are some life changing events that help influence your music?

I lived in a place where everybody was doubting me, saying that I’m not good enough so I really didn’t have a good support and that’s what made me work heard to where I am right now

 Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I see myself performing on big stages, producing hits and winning awards

Fill in the Blanks

Without music I’d go Crazy

Music is my life

My music makes me feel Alive

I write music because I love music and that’s the best way to express myself and let it all out

Support my music because it’s about time !! the world needs it

 

We will be waiting for the Wildest Dreams cover on the 9th of September. Wishing Gael Boom the best in his endeavors, make sure you follow him on twitter @GaelBoom.

KUBI-AUDIO TRIP

 

 

 

Where are you from? Where did your name originate?

Milwaukee, WI, But I was born in Congo, Africa. My name Kubi comes from my Full Name Mukubi but it’s actually an acronym of Keep Up Born Ill.

 

How would you describe your music?

I Think the best way to describe my music is that it’s me

From Track one to Track Sixteen, My Music Describes me and where I’m at in my life

So sometimes it’s going to be smooth, sometimes it’s going to high paced. My music is just really a combination of a Late teenagers life and all the different emotions that a kid goes through.

Who were your childhood influences?

-what is your first experience with music?

-what type of music did you listen to?

Growing Up I really listened to everything my brother did he was the first person to put me up on 2pac and DMX, who are some of my biggest influences, I listened to a lot of Nelly and Eminem, But as I started to grow I jumped into listening to a lot of Texas Hip-Hop. Chamillionaire was like the first I ever really got into by myself, he’s the first artist I ever bought an album from and after listening to it was the first time I ever thought of doing music.

 

 Why did you decide to pursue your music?

Well it took a while I got into it and started making songs in 2010 which then after I dropped a Song called SO-Much Which Helped build a little bit of a Buzz for me and got me signed but soon after that I opted out of that contract and continued playing basketball. Then I got into college for ball and during my first semester of being a redshirt freshmen and dealing with the struggles of going from playing all the time in high school to not playing a lick my freshmen year of college. Really through me into a depression that basketball could no longer help get me out of and music seemed to be my savior, so that when I thought to myself “ Hey you should give This a Try”

 

What can the people expect from your music?

Live performance?

When you come to my show, you should expect to be Entertained, I’m really animated, I like to get into the crowd and really interact with everyone. I love Crowd participation so if you want to run on stage its more than welcome. My show is really an experience so I think the best way for you to get it is to come to one of my shows.

 

What would you describe as your biggest break in music thus far?

Redshirt Freshmen, That whole Mixtape Really Helped break me and get me on people radar, because up until that point the only thing people heard for two years was So-Much it helped show growth in my music and Landed me on a Lot of Front Pages for Top Mixtapes when It Came Out. Including Dat Piff.

 If signed, how much creative control would you want over your career?

 

We’ll I think all artist’s want complete control because it is your thoughts that were putting on wax. But I understand the business side of things, and I understand that sometimes you need the input of others especially others that are more experienced then you in your field. I really want it to where me and the label can sit together and come up with a plan that were both comfortable with, which each side isn’t really stepping on the others toes.

 

 Thinking back what are some life changing events that help influence your music?

 

Everything from Quiting Boxing when I was on Top and Picking Up basketball and having everybody look at you like WTF are you doing, to doing the same exact thing again With Music but this time Really leaving basketball. Also living in shelter homes and having your bothers and sisters go to jail. I think that my life in general shapes my music no one real moment, but everything as a whole. My life has been a roller coaster before music and Now it’s even more so

 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Well in five years I see myself with a bachelors degree in Marketing and I also see myself having 3-5 Number One Hits on the billboard charts. And really being comfortable with my life and the things I’ve done in it up to that point.

 

Without music I’d be Lost

Music is Food for The Soul_

My music makes me feel Like a Trillion Bucks

I write music because It helps me free myself from the Shekels of life

Support my music because It’s actually good haha It Doesn’t suck lol
