Vybz Kartel Protege Vanessa Bling Celebrates “Freedom” On New Song

In 2014, Vanessa Bling was one of dancehall’s most promising young starlets, earning Jamaica Star’s People’s Choice Awards for “Female Artist Of The Year” and “Most Selling Female Artist.” Under the wing of reggae super star Vybz Kartel, Vanessa Bling also toured the world, appearing on stages from Germany to Israel and all across the Caribbean. It all came to a halt when she was arrested alongside her mentor in 2014.
Following the tumultous legal ordeal, Vanessa Bling took a break from the world of music to regroup. Cardi B’s use of Vanessa Bling’s “Everything Fi Hold Him” catapulted the singer back into the spotlight and she took that as a sign to give her fans what they had been asking for: new music.
After collaborating with Marcus Records and producer Marcus Myrie (son of dancehall legend Buju Banton) on a series of well received songs, Vanessa Bling is once again ready to fly on her own. “The song “Freedom” was my opportunity to tell my story,” she says. “Not just to get some closure on the situation for myself, but also to offer hope and encouragement to anyone else who might be going through a similar situation.”
Currently signed to Outtaspace Entertainment and managed by En-Treeg Records, Vanessa Bling is well on her way back to the top.

Ghostface Killah Announces New LP, The Lost Tapes, With New Single Featuring Snoop Dogg , E-40, & LA The Darkman

In the 1st half of 2018, Wu-Tang Clan fans worldwide were hopeful that the previous sale of the one of a kind Wu-Tang album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, would change hands from the currently incarcerated owner Martin Shkreli to Wu-Tang affiliate Matthew “M80” Markoff who would release it freely to the public— to be appreciated by all. In light of Markoff’s 1 million dollar offer, the sale never came to fruition and Markoff like most Wu-Tang fans simply wrote off the notion of the one of a kind album and any chance at ever being able to hear it after that.

Both Ghost’s set out to revive that feeling, update it for 2018 and create another certified Wu-Tang Banger!

GOV Drops A Genre Blending Masterpiece With His New LP “The Red Room”

GOV is an exceptional new voice originally from London, UK but now based in Toronto, Canada. Creating a buzz in 2016 with his debut EP release “Nights”,the project featured guest artists such as Amir Obe, and Ye Ali. Premiering the EP via Complex Music, GOV established a genuine sound that fused elements of grime, trap, R&B and hip-hop.

In May 2017, GOV released his second official EP “The Roses”. To accompany the project GOV put together an incredible short film that was scored with music from the EP. The EP and the film “The Roses” were featured in Complex Music, HotNewHipHop and among other taste making media outlets. The EP and the short film were heavily inspired by the city of Toronto and GOV’s experiences in the city.

“The Red Room” blends a dark toned R&B, a significant part of the Toronto sound, with electro-pop and Hip Hop. The albums production is impressive and dexterous with uses of elements of several genres. Toronto producer Arham crafted most of the albums sounds with GOV with additional production credits from Louis Vito and Vino.

Speaking on the new album GOV says “The Red Room marks a point of freedom in my career; creatively, personally and just in life in general. I decided not to confine myself to a certain genre or sound and put together a body of work which best described where I was in life at the time. So a lot of it is free flowing and just consistent vibes that lead into the next. I designed it as a project you can play from end-to-end and wanted to take you through a sonic journey ranging from electro, alternative, R&B and pop. Welcome to The Red Room”. GOV’s latest release and the first video single off of the album,“MiXXXd Up”, dropped on all stream services on July 31st and the video is also out now.
