Indie Artist Spotlight: Stream Lyrical Union’s New Single “Lady”

Lyrical Union Take You On A Soulful Journey With Their Latest Release “Lady”

Young Noah Da Champ and Rhymefluid Tha Bar King from Lyrical Union, 2 Lyricists with a passion and love for Hip-Hop. Both met in 1997 at Challenger Middle School’s Recreation Program in Glendale, Arizona and became best friends sharing the same love for Hip-Hop and Rap Music. Champ and Flu came up in a Hip-Hop era at a time when Gangsta Rap was on the rise and mourned the deaths of 2pac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.

Champ and Flu’s musical interests were both Eastcoast and Westcoast music, being that Champ was from West Los Angeles, California and Rhymefluid from Baltimore, Maryland but grew up in Glendale, AZ. When the 2 came together in Independence High School in 2001 also in Glendale, they would both write rhymes together during class after finishing their work, and freestyle when they had free time at school. Both participated in group battles against other groups before and after school proving their lyrical skills and dominating the campus demanding respect. Musical interests at the time were Nas, Jay-Z, LL Cool J, Canibus, DMX, The Lox, Mobb Deep (whom they wrote alot of raps to)Memphis Bleek, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Eminem, Xzibit, Ja Rule, Master P, Kool G. Rap, KRS-One, and Common.

Being that these were rookies and legends of their time, they had respect for the old schoolers that came before them, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Run-DMC, Kurtis Blow, Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, and they learned about these rappers and MC’s from the Hip-Hop Biographies shown on MTV and BET. Da Champ and Rhymefluid wanted to grow up and be legends like these artist who helped build Hip-Hop and still to this day they feel the legends are the reason why Hip-Hop is on a much bigger scale than it was back then. Noah Da Champ graduated from High School in 2003 and Rhymefluid Tha Barking graduated in 2004, and coming up in that time, Hip-Hop was making a dramatic change, With G-Unit, Rocafella Records and Dipset making street bangers, Hip-Hop turned to sex, lust and glorifying of money which they were not down with. Champ and Flu hated any rap song that had punchlines such as “pop that booty, twerk it down to the floor” and so on. To them this was not real Hip-Hop, but they listened to alot of G-Unit, D-Block and Dipset mixtapes to help warm up their skills before getting in the studio.

Before Rhymefluid graduated high school, he recruited 3 other members into Lyrical Union, Kay-on, Kahlee, T-Suede and Vice Mob. Champ met up with them after school to record street hits in Kay-on’s home studio. The group recorded an album called Always Standing Tall, which consisted of 20 tracks produced by Kay-On, After Kay-On and Kahlee graduated, everyone remained best friends but the group disbanded except for Rhymefluid Tha Bar King and Young Noah Da Champ who continued to record tracks with each other. Young Noah Da Champ started to record a solo album called Rhyme Technician in 2004 which Rhymefluid can be heard on a number of tracks such as Total Knockout, Bringin’ It Back, Movin’ It Out and The MLK Joint (which was dedicated to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.)

Their best friend Alex also known as Talented Alex joined on with the group later to record their #1 smash hit Sixty Times. Champ was looking to market and promote these hits but Noah didn’t have the connections wanted to skyrocket the album and Noah became depressed. His friends wanted to move forward and do more music and Noah seemed to hold onto Rhyme Technician. Then life happened, in 2007 Champ and Flu was facing life struggles with jobs, money and careless women who wanted to take advantage of Champ and Flu. But in 2010 Da Champ got back into the studio and recorded a mixtape called Ladies Only which also features Talented Alex and Rhyme Fluid on remix tracks such as, Sexy Lady, All I Want Is You, Change It All and Good Love Music. Around that time, the mixtape game was changing where most mixtapes were “free” and not sold. In 2013 Young Noah Da Champ prepared Mr. Nice Guy EP which features Rhymefluid Tha Bar King and Talented Alex on a revamped version of Sixty Times which is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Apple Music and Spotify. Rhymefluid Tha Bar King also managed to be involved in many local rap battles including Battles At The Bridge in Phoenix, AZ.

In 2015 when Da Champ prepared the Re-Release of Mr. Nice Guy, Champ wanted to include more tracks with him and Rhymefluid Tha Bar King, but then, Flu ended up facing jail time for abandoned probation, which left Noah Da Champ distraught and couldn’t do any music without his best homie. Champ and his wife supported Flu throughout his time in jail by enabling phone calls and keeping in touch with others close to Flu including the mother of his child and their twin daughters.

February 2016 Rhymefluid Tha Bar King finished his time and came home. Close friends and family members celebrated with Flu and joined his boy Young Noah Da Champ on their first two shows together since coming back home performing Good Love Music and a Mobb Deep classic hit called Real Survive, a remix of Mobb Deep’s Survival Of The Fittest which was recorded in 2013. Alongside reuniting with Champ, Flu is also dominating the battle Rap Scene seeking to grab the attention of KOTD and URL to become the best battle lyricist in Rap and Young Noah Da Champ preparing his Gospel Album Reborn Spirit.

Just recently, Champ and Flu performed at the Arizona Mixtape Music Awards on December 17, 2017 and made an impact in the Arizona Hip-Hop Community. Now in their mid 30’s Young Noah Da Champ and Rhymefluid Tha Bar King plan to set the bar in Hip-Hop history with their upcoming album Rising Icons which features their new hit single, “When I’m On My Grind which is set to be released early this year on thier joint venture labels iLL Money Entertainment (Young Noah Da Champ CEO) and Serveemup Gang (Rhymefluid’s new record label) and group label Lyrical Union Music Group. They also have other hot bangers such as Lady and On Mah Momma along with their good friend and newest member of the group Bozo now known as DJ Phattz recording, mixing and co-producing tracks. As a trio or solo, Champ, Phattz and Flu will continue to be a dynamic lyrical force in Hip-Hop keeping the essence of real music alive.

Indie Artist Spotlight: Tap In With Souls Rest New Single “Lighter” | @Soulsrest

Souls Rest combine elements of Hip Hop and RnB/Soul music blending rap with melodic vocals and dynamic cutting edge production to create a unique and captivating sound.

Based in Vancouver, Canada, Souls Rest consists of vocalist/producer a son and rapper.

Souls Rest draws upon their love of classic hip hop and soul, but are driven to create a new Urban RnB soundscape. Direct, lyrical dexterity is coupled with catchy hooks—the result is relevant, melodic and candid music.

Their latest release; “Lighter” is the second single from their upcoming 10-song album project, Cosmonauts. The record aims to expose the disconnect between the person we show to the world, and the person we really are on the inside. It’s written to someone who is struggling with life, and is hiding within a fake exterior. Everything is falling apart around them, yet they still refuse to share their problems. Ironically, it is this elusive honesty that often leads to us being able to access help and ultimately freedom.

Evolving from their previous records, The Cosmonauts album project will have a more Pop-sound woven into the exciting and infectious tracks. The music will continue to be a mix live musicianship and contemporary hip hop production, which creates their unique, memorable sound. Souls Rest is even more intent on bringing fresh new tones to mainstream Hip Hop, RnB, and Soul music.

So far in 2019, the band has released, the single “Cosmonauts, and their “from_the vault”, a 6 song EP that tells uplifting stories of love and hope. 6 music videos accompanied these music releases.

With the support of Mercury Artists and Element-80 Records Inc, the band will be looking ahead to grow their fanbase online and on radio; as well as, touring and performing at festivals and venues across Canada and the US.

Indie Artist Spotlight: Get To Know Tennessee Artist Brad Jones | @BradJon82054504

Brad Jones Releases New Project “Where I’m Going” On Spotify And ALL Streaming Outlets

Brad Jones is a hip hop artist, singer, songwriter and producer from Chattanooga, TN. What you see is what you get. Just like the lyrics in his song “I’ll Do Me”, he lives by the mantra “You do you and I’ll do me”. He is a real artist who pours intense passion into every song he writes, delivers spit-fire lyrics on the mic and believes in leaving no-less than everything on the stage. And this is exactly what he has done every time over the years as he takes the stage at festivals, clubs, churches and venues across the Southeast US to prove exactly why he belongs in this industry.

Ever since he played his first note at age 9, he fell in love with music and discovered he could use it to escape the pain in his life. It was an escape from the real world. He could escape the bullies. Escape his fears and anxieties. Escape the hungry nights. Escape the struggle. Growing up poor might have been discouraging to some, but this sparked the fire inside he needed to grind till his music was heard and he proved himself on the mic. He learned early, if you have a dream then go and get it.

 

Everybody has a story and he unapologetically shares his. From childhood struggle, emotional scars to faith and battling and addiction, no stone is left unturned as he uses all of this as his fuel to keep grinding and pursuing his passion. If there is one theme that carries through all of his music it’s that no matter how far you’ve fallen or how lost you may feel, don’t give up. There’s hope waiting for you on the other side. So keep putting one foot in front of the other and you’ll get to where you’re going.

His album “Where I’m Going” is out now on all digital platforms and stores. Physical albums can be purchased through contacting www.BradJonesRap.com.

New Single “Waiting” just dropped December 6th and a new single called “MMML (My Music, My Life) is dropping December 20th. Stream “Where I’m Going” below on Spotify and all streaming outlets!

Indie Artist Spotlight: Meet Tampa Rapper Paradox AON | @ParadoxAON

Paradox AON was born in Tampa, Florida. Decent up bringing; drugs were relevant but not seen. Great mother, she did her best given such horrible environments we landed in. I always had excelling talent in nearly everything I did, just had a lack of motivation to go with it. Quick feet, but no sight of where I was headed. There was no authoritative figure in the home and I did not know my father. I eventually met him when I was 19 and found that he is a musician as well. I guess you can say it’s genetics!

I have lost more than I have won. I have never seen honest success, until now. You can say that I have been in and out of jail, all my life. I used to define a good day based on whether it ended in handcuffs or not. I was pretty much locked up in group home after group home, from 13 to 18 years old. I aged out of the system when I turned 18 on December 11th, 2004. It took only 16 days for me to land myself in jail, on Dec 27th. I spent the first year of my adult life behind bars and almost completely missed my child hood. I was angry with no understanding of life so again, I hit the streets. I was a father at 19 but never became a dad until I was nearly 30. I wanted to love my daughter, but I didn’t know how.

I eventually found my way out of Florida and spent most of those years in Tennessee. I got lucky more than my fair share of times, until my lifestyle finally brought me to my knees. I was facing 30 to 55 years in prison in Tennessee. I had already taken the charges, so I couldn’t even fight the case – just hope for a good deal. I was sentenced to 16 years at 30 percent, suspended with treatment. You see, it was in that moment that I realized the only way I could change was through something greater than myself. Otherwise, I knew that I would fail again. I didn’t know when I would get my freedom back, but I knew when I did, I was going to live the rest of my life differently.

 

I was released to a halfway house in Memphis and by the time I was done with the program, I was selling drugs. It all started to fall apart again and then something made me walk in my P.O.’s office and ask for help. I got lucky again and got the help I needed, but it wasn’t without slipping one more time. About four months in, I was getting high again. By the grace of God, I got back on track and the next nine months would change my life forever.

I prayed that God would give me something to replace all the things I needed to get away from. To give me a new purpose in life because all that I knew was jail, drugs and drive-by’s. It was then that I found my voice in Hip-hop. Music literally saved my life. The amount of pain I have endured throughout my life gives me everything I need to write the lyrics that I spit. For the last two years I have continuously evolved as an artist, but equally importantly, as a man. I have found my purpose in this life: to use my struggles as a message through music.

My demise was my blessing- I guess it’s a paradox.

Indie Artist Spotlight: Brooklyn-based Hip-Hop Artist Nino Khayyam | @NinoKhayyam

For Khayyam, it’s our individual decisions and actions that dictate our contributions to society, and it is the sum of these parts through which he hopes to share his art and inspire others. Never without a bottle of Fireball in the booth, Khayyam is making waves across New York for the inferno he brings to the studio.

Khayyam is a Brooklyn-based Hip-Hop artist whose music encapsulates the struggles and shortcomings of inner city life. With a convincingly trill vibe that is imbued with narratives of overcoming his troubled past, Khayyam steps up to the plate with a slew of hard-hitting Hip-Hop.

Khayyam is inspired by an eclectic range of music. Growing up, he idolized Bob Marley, Booba, and Bill Withers and Kurt Cobain to name just a few. He also cites his grandfather, a highly talented guitarist as a pivotal influence, along with anyone in music who put 100% of their soul into their art while simultaneously affecting culture itself.

Khayyam gravitated towards the booth in the late 90s, though it wasn’t until he wrote ‘F.W.N.’ that momentum truly began rolling. It was this single that would propel his career forward, with NYC clubs like WIP, Greenhouse, and Veranda all started showing strong support and giving Khayyam regular rotation.

Khayyam has a mixtape out now, ‘Pre-Season’, plus two singles titled ‘My Bag’ and ‘Pray For Me’, which serve as a prelude to his forthcoming untitled album. Prior to the release of Khayyam’s album, he will drop another mixtape, ‘Opening Day’. Further release details to follow soon.

His upcoming shows include a release party in NYC with DJ Spin King (November 12th 2019), and another with DJ Freedom (November 14th).
