Q&A with Cam Meekins

On July 31st, Cam Meekins released Lamp City 2, seven years after the release of Lamp City, which peaked at #3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts. With tracks like “Jack Bauer,” “George Foreman,” and “Right Now,” Cam Meekins has created another amazing album. Throughout his career, Cam has over 100 million streams on Spotify alone. The local Bostonian has shown how much potential the city has, and Cam will continue to inspire his fans and the people around him.

For people who do not know who you are, what do you want them to know about you?

I just want people to give the music a chance. I think if they do that they can get a sense for what I'm about and what the whole Lamp City brand is about. I want to inspire people to get the most that they can out of their own life. I feel that way because I myself want that too. I'm just trying to keep pushing and keep progressing in my life and music is my outlet to talk on that and to talk on everything I go through in life. If people can relat…

Yahweh Almighty

When attending Dearborn Middle School, Yahweh Almighty’s class was assigned to write the poem. At the time, he was dating a girl, and he used this poem to try and impress her after school. Little did he know, the teacher was going to make him read it in front of the class. Speaking on the experience, Yahweh Almighty said, “as soon as I finished the poem, the whole class started clapping and shit. I loved that attention. Not like an attention seeker but the attention when someone related, you know. Music was a way to express myself, at that time, the only way.” Since then, Yahweh Almighty has received co-signs from Gillie the Kid and Drake. Released songs such as “Derek Jeter,” and “Not Invited.” Yahweh Almighty has also gotten heavily involved with music behind the scenes; he has ghostwritten for artists, manages artists, and been on BET JAMS.  There are a few more reasons than just that poem in middle school that got Yahweh Almighty into music.

Dylan Reese: The Complete Package

Around 2008-2009, Dylan Reese started to record in his bedroom. He talked about his beginning stating, “ I was making songs as a complete joke with a group of friends. They were more comedic/parody than anything else. But over time, I’ve learned that this is the best way I know how to express myself.” A couple of years later, Dylan soon learned how to work with music software and “the fundamentals of sound.” Dylan Reese has over 200,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and over 10 million streams on Spotify independently.  Dylan is originally from Chicopee, Massachusetts, and currently resides in Los Angeles. When asked about the move from Massachusetts to LA, he said, “It was pretty seamless, to be honest. I knew that I accomplished what I could’ve in Massachusetts - both in Western MA & Boston. I was planning on coming to LA years in advance, so I had built some relationships here, which made it a lot easier. Also, I made the move with my best friend, Bobby Hobert, which also helped.…

Kid Nix Releases New Song Titled "Beautiful"

After over a month hiatus, Kid Nix returns with a summer anthem titled “Beautiful.” Listening to the song, it’s clear that this is undoubtedly Kid Nix’s best work to date. He recently talked about the song on Instagram, stating “This song literally took a year to make. I’d go away from and go back to it so many times. I wrote 4 verses to it (obviously only ended up using two). I think I hit 4 different mixes on the song too. This song is just really cool to me cause again it stems from personal experience (seeing someone I missed who I haven’t seen in a very long time). There was just lots and lots of effort put into it for it only being a single.” Kid Nix plans to use the momentum from this song to leverage growth as an artist and a brand, as well as being a strong foundation for his future work. With a very catchy hook and strong flow throughout, this song is a must listen! 
Kid Nix also plans to release a music video, and a limited line of merchandise to accompany the song all durin…

Kusshmulla

Once Chief Keef came up, Kusshmulla knew he wanted to make music. At the age of ten, Kusshmulla started rapping, and he and his brother started a group called 8-Hunna. However, this isn’t the only group Kussh has been a part of. Kusshmulla is part of ENTL, he signed with them two years ago, and everything has gone up for him since then. Kussh has worked with artists such as Casanova and has met G Herbo, Fabolous, and Blizzy Banks. While working with Casanova, Kussh was able to learn a lot about the industry as well as himself as an artist. He continued by saying “When I worked with Casanova, he heard everybody's piece on the track and said “you’re different” he was telling me the way I rap is not like the average drill or Boston rapper, I have my own sound, so I kept going with that.” Kussh’s music can be a mix of two types of music, pain, and drill, but he puts them into one. He elaborates on his sound saying, “I have a Chicago/New York sound, not a lot of Boston rappers sound like…
