SRE Media Group Announces NEW CLIENTs: @WhoIsParker x @ThaRealSK19 |#HIPHOPISBACK

In today’s music,  you can’t tell Hip Hop from EDM and Pop Soul these days. Not taking away from these electronic pulse seekers, but some of us crave the deep 808, head-banging, lyrical mind bending journeys, emcees have been known to take their listeners on for decades.

This NEW MUSIC TUESDAY, I am happy to introduce you to SRE Media Group’s new clients:

@THAREALSK19 “Kardinal Rule” Now on iTunes

Born in Las Vegas, SK 1-9 fell in love w/ the city lights, 24 hour hustle, and both the celebrity and high roller lifestyle. Later on in his childhood he moved to a small town in Louisiana called Newellton, where he was brought up listening to Melodic Blues Rhythms and the Dixie Sounds of New Orleans.

As a teen, SK 1-9 moved back to Las Vegas, and then California, and that’s where he found his passion for music. Listening to the heavy street anthems of NWA, Eazy E, and Tupac. SK 1-9 found that rap music was a way to speak out against social ills, and that it kept true to the pulse of the Black Community and their intense relationship with the police.

SK 1-9 used rap music to express himself. He was immediately signed to a production company, while struggling in the belly of the streets. The deal eventually fell through, and SK 1-9 found himself hustling on the streets to survive. Then he moved to Hawaii with his brother, who was in the military. In Hawaii, SK 1-9 worked harder on his music. Performing before large crowds on the island.

After spending a few years in Hawaii, SK 1-9 decided to take his talents to hip hop’s mecca New York City. Where he now resides.

In 2010, he released the “War Baby” mixtape and distributed it in the markets he lived in. It did extremely well with sales for an independent project of it’s kind. In 2012, SK1-9 dropped the street album “Blood On My Sleeves” and it’s still charting well on Reverbnation.com. And, now in 2014, SK 1-9 released the highly anticipated “KARDINAL RULE” available now on iTunes.

SK 1-9’s music is relative to his cultural experiences. Having the opportunity to live in different regions, that hold distinctive music genres, these experiences give him a broad stroke on rap music, by blending sounds from these markets, mixed with lyrical concept and meaning.

Just like the SK rifle, he spits lyrics with a rapid fire. Inspired by artists like TupacDMX,and Lil Boosie, SK 1-9’s aim is to bring back the rebel minded spirit in rap/hip hop music. Something that will Educate and Energize the Youth and Music Lovers Abroad!

TYRONESMUSIC.com RELEASES NEW SINGLE “PARADISE” FT. RICH TYCOON + LOU STYLES

NEW Single from Tyrone #PARADISE ft Rich Tycoon + Lou Styles
NEW Single from Tyrone #PARADISE ft Rich Tycoon + Lou Styles

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TYRONE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “PARADISE” FT. RICH TYCOON and LOU STYLES

(+ FULL VIDEO)

TYRONE releases the new single and premieres the video for “Paradise” featuring Rich Tycoon

(Chris Rene’ / San Quinn) and Lou Stylez. The single is now available on Itunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and music retailers globally.

“Paradise”…An Electro-Soul beat, that embraces a Melodic Piano Riff,  is only toppings on the track. Truly, the Bassline drives the record while the Drums keep the song moving from verse through chorus. Mario Armstead’s keys, lifts the melody out of monotony, while atmospheric sounds set a tantalizing mood.

Tyrone and Rich Tycoon trade verses about a woman who finds her; “Paradise”,  in materials, not in love and commitment. RnB Crooner, Lou Stylez , tells his side of the story on the hook: “I’m trying to please her heart, but she demanded more than I can give…”, he sings, as his heartbreaking, skeptic  tone adds feeling on the topic.

The video’s cinematography sets the stage for the sound bed. The red hue and bar backdrop is the perfect blend of soulful “coolness” providing a creative landscape for the unique song. Directed by Tyrone himself, the video is a step in a refreshing direction artistically for the cinematographer; showing his versatility, attention to detail and creativity.

Rich Tycoon (Filthy Rich) of Black Bizness Records made his debut in 1992 on E-Dawg’s; (Sir Mix-A-Lot / Rhyme Cartel Records) “Droptop”. Since then he has been featured on music w/ pop star Chris Rene’ of Simon Cowell’s X Factor, San Quinn, Yukmouth of the infamous, Luniz and many others.

LOSE to WIN: A Battle I Know Too Well! Fantasia Performs Live on American Idol!

Fantasia Performs New Hit Single "Lose to Win" on American Idol.
Fantasia Performs New Hit Single “Lose to Win” on American Idol.

Watching Fantasia stand in the very spot she started from, riddled with emotion, I started crying uncontrollable tears. See I know first hand what it’s like to lose, with no winning in sight. For me, this performance was a holy ghost takeover. With bitter sweet chills, bottom lip trembles, magnified over the airways healing so many young girls who may have never experience this kind of heartbreak, but now have hope that they can survive one. Plus, healing the mature woman as well, who knows exactly the name of the man who these lyrics apply to. Who she lost herself to. Who she’s fighting to take her power back from, now in this very moment.

Young Aretha I call her (Fantasia), still so very vulnerable, humble and approachable.  I only wish I could’ve heard from you last night. I can see the blessed energy running through you, and I understand why you couldn’t say anything after that spiritual fight. I’m sure you’ve performed that song countless times. On TV Shows globally, but I think maybe because you were full circle, standing on the stage that launch your dynamic career, GOD took over and you left everything on the stage.

You’ve had an amazing walk in life. Now you have a wonderful and joyful journey ahead of you. Unbeknownst, you’re taking me with you. You truly undressed this pretty picture I created, and reminded me I still have some healing to do. I sincerely thank you for that. I will continue to pray for your greatness, your peace, to accompany you even whenever you feel the pressures of mass media and unforgivable press. The industry is brutal, but what you have surpasses all things superficial. I see the GOD in you. Let your light shine girlfriend!!!

Many Blessings!

HIP HOP’s REBIRTH: PAPOOSE DEBUTS “THE NACIREMA DREAM” at SOB’s NYC!

The Nacirema Dream Album Cover
The Nacirema Dream Official Album Cover

Some people get confused between Rap and Hip Hop. However, to the true music lover, PAPOOSE  is the clear difference. I believe Rap only has one main element of Hip Hop and that’s RHYME. NOT Deejay, NOT Emcee, NOT Bboy or Bgirl, NO Loyalty nor Kinship, NOTHING Artistic or Visual, because Big Booties and Fast Cars don’t count as Art that Graffiti holds. Plain and simple, NO real elements of REAL LIFE.

At a RAP Show, I can see them sweatin off mollies and groupies strippin, cause they’ve been told it’ll get them backstage, and land them in the lap of money. At a Hip Hop Show, like The NACIREMA DREAM | PAPOOSE Official Album Release Party, I attended (3/27/13 at SOB’s in New York City), I saw REAL LIFE, unorchestrated moments, like when an audience member felt so comfortable to get on stage and disclose her battle with Cancer, after hearing, PAPOOSE perform his new song “Cure”, featuring Erykah Badu. Along side, radio and media trendsetters like DJ Kay Slay, DJ Enuff , Akeem Shabazz and DJ Juanyto were live and in effect as they gave their support to the Brooklyn living legend himself. And, of course, his manager and close friend Du Love, was head noddin while tweaking any and all details, making sure the party popped off as planned.

It’s been 10 years strong in the making. Watching this incredible emcee pounding the blacktop, mixtape after mixtape, keeping his name and more important, his HBM (Honor Before Money), movement alive and relevant in the blurred community of Hip Hop and Rap. Respected by the grimiest character, THE NACIREMA DREAM dropped to thousands of extremely anxious fans, even more like hungry congregation, because the album went to chuuuurch!

Well, the anticipation is over!!! Tracks like “What’s My Name” featuring his wife Remy Ma,  “Alphabetical Slaughter Part II / Z to A” and, “On Top Of My Game” featuring  Mavado, will definitely set the tone of the future of Hip Hop. 

If you don’t have it, you can cop it here  https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-nacirema-dream/id607302011 . Feel free to leave comments and reviews. I/we want to know what you think!!!

Jah Bless Our Journey!
