Video Blog- On the Couch Interview with Philly Hip-Hop Artist Prime City Rap Star

April 2, 2013 Philly Support Philly  No comments

Prime City Rap Star Interview with The Author YaniOn Easter, I had the privilege of doing an On the Couch Interview with Philly native and Hip-Hop artist, Prime City Rap Star. But City is far more than just your average underground rapper from Philly. This talented lyricist is also a graphic designer, photographer, videographer, and has other talents he intends to showcase in the near future. Hailing from the North Philly section of Philly (Blumberg Projects, my first home) City has sold thousands of copies of his mixtape, King of Pressure which can be downloaded on datpiff.com, has performed at numerous venues in and around Philly, markets heavy with the "powerful, privilege and influential" Elite Klass and is definitely someone who should not be slept on. City has also recently launched his own website http://www.ifuxwitprimecity.com/ where you can learn more about his music, his shows and other information pertaining to his skills.

Watch the On the Couch Interview which includes his rap video "DC 2 Intro" and his song "The Moment" from the King of Pressure mixtape. City talks in depth about his skills in and out of the studio, the sit-com that he worked on "Family Business" which will hopefully be airing during the summer on Comcast, (Stayed tuned for more information on that) and we both voiced our opinions on the over flow of rappers trying to hit the scene and gave our take on Beyonce's track "Bow Down" which I wholeheartedly will say is TRASH without a shadow of a doubt. But that's just me.

Mel Love Philly Hip-Hop Rap Artist "The Silencer" mixtape

Hello everyone. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. Recently, I have been doing a strand of interviews with various artists around Philly and my latest was with a lyrical mad man by the name of Mel Love. I personally think he has serious flow game and he demonstrated his freestyle and lyrical ability at the end of our interview which you will be able to check out on here as well as on my YouTube Channel. Mel spoke candidly on how he began rapping as well as who he would like to collaborate with if given the opportunity and gave his personal views on hip-hop and the state of the popular music genre right now. Mel Love has worked with Meek Mill previously and appeared on quite a few mix tapes. You can get "The Silencer" on Datpiff.com I personally rated it 5 stars and can't wait to see what else this amazing artist will be bringing to the table in the near future. Follow Mel Love on twitter @mel_love215 as well as on Instagram @mellove215. Do NOT sleep on this artist!

Hip-Hop Feature and Interview with Philly Rapper Staxx

February 25, 2013 Philly Support Philly  No comments

Recently I've been networking with a Facebook friend of mine and I've had the privilege of sitting down with a really cool rapper from Philadelphia by the name of Staxx who has a very interesting style, is extremely lyrical and very in tune with what is going in today's society and how Hip-Hop has been allowed to perpetuate some of the behavior with this generation. We spoke in an interview about his projects that he has been working on, one in particular that I have taken an interest in, P.A.I.N (Poor Americans In Need) that speaks of the every day struggles in this country. Though Staxx believes everyone in the country who is not in the upper class suffers in their own way, he also believes African Americans seem to suffer the most for various reasons such as lack of resources and adequate education. The project was inspired by Staxx's own personal experience with pain and the struggles he's been able to overcome by letting it all out through his tracks. Check out the interview to learn more about Staxx.
