Maryann - Northern California's freshest female vocalist - is hitting the scene hard in 2012. Her sound is reminiscent of 90's R&B stars such as Aaliyah or Janet Jackson; she draws on these influences yet has a voice and style all her own. Maryann's new video, "Shades of Grey" is the first single from her upcoming sophomore album "Futuristic Always" (due out early 2013). The video and single are a testament to the in-house capabilities of the N-Crowd Entertainment group. N8 The Gr8 produced "Shades of Grey" and directed the video, while Maryann wrote and arranged the lyrics and edited the video. The single is available to buy on itunes, along with her recently released, debut album "Timing Is Everything."
KarenBe is like no other. Hailing from Hawaii via Barbadian and Syrian parents, Karen's childhood memories are of sun-blessed homes where Arabic, French and English entwined and where the elders sang in Caribbean cadence. A singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, KarenBe’s sounds are “Brand New Vintage”, a fusion of her eclectic beginnings mixed with tropical jungle rhythms, thumping Caribbean baselines that are soulfully honest.
Here is "Never Be Alone" from Bronx-born lyricist Chipz Da General, the latest single from his upcoming album No Days Off: Business as Usual. The song also features songwriter Sega, and the project will be available on iTunes on October 22, 2012 via Jas Group Entertainment!

Stixx isn't playing in his new video for "Champion"! In preparation, the Brooklyn MC jumped in the ring with trainer Guy Verderosa at the world famous Gleason's Gym for some boxing tips! And it doesn't hurt that Guy busts a bit of a mean freestyle himself!
