I am about to begin a new beat tape project of which I need your involvement.
"The People's Beat Tape" will be created by sampling songs that YOU suggest. This could be anything from Broadway Musical soundtracks, your children's or siblings favourite cartoon theme, your parents favourite record, anything interesting and not done before to make this truly an incredible and interesting project. Every song sample suggestion that makes the final cut will have a special thank you for being involved, your name credited, and any other short special message or personal dedication you wish to be included.
I really feel this project will personally propel me to the next level and so I'm seeking your support and looking forward to your input.
Deau X. Boy doesn't believe he would've made it out of his situation in the city of Detroit without influences like Pharrell Williams, Tashir Maraukami, Nigo and wants to help other people create a life by believing they have the tools and that they can do it if they create a vision of it.

Block Starz Music Is First Record Label To Launch Online TV Network

Block Starz Music LLC, best known for distributing and promoting early independent releases by platinum-selling Rostrum/Atlantic Records artist Wiz Khalifa, gold-certified Bad Boy/Interscope Records artist MGK, and Rasheeda of VH1's Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta, has launched The BlockStarz.Tv Network, a film and television production company that distributes online video.
The company, which was founded by award-winning new media veteran and Block Starz Music LLC chairman Bayer Mack, has partnered with various independent publications and websites, including Faygoluvers, The HYPE Magazine, Rap Reviews, Tattle Tailzz, and Music Industry News Network, to develop, promote, and distribute online television specials and original web series.
“This is something [HYPE Magazine publisher] Jameelah Wilkerson and I talked about doing a few years ago, but the marketplace and consumer technology wasn't ready,” says Mack, who was also a founding member of Loud/SRC Records founder Steve Rifkind's fledgling AKA Music Network in the late 90's with his website HOT 104.com. “Now, with the rise of the mobile web and the prevalence of smartphones and tablets, we can finally give small businesses and independent content producers, like ourselves, a cost-effective way to reach targeted consumers whenever and wherever they are.”
Block Starz Music, which has licensed online video content by its artists to MTV's Ridiculessness and TruTV's Upload w/ Shaquille O'Neal, is the first record label to launch a television network and already has several shows in development, including AMERICAN UNDERGROUND a half-hour web series, created by the editorial staff at popular music website Faygoluvers.net, that will profile underground music artists, eateries, and hang outs in different American cities and MODEL CONFESSIONS, co-produced by women's lifestyle website TattleTailzz.com, which features interviews and profiles of fashion models who recount experiences and offer cautionary tales about the pitfalls of the industry.
“Throughout its history, Block Starz Music has established a reputation for identifying new talent and cultural trends first,” says Mack, who is credited with signing early independent releases by Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Rhymefest, Raheem DeVaugn, Fashawn, and the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. “By maintaining our long-standing professional relationships and developing new strategic business alliances with rising consumer brands like Kas'tell Vodka and Sodiem Lifestyle Apparel, we feel The BlockStarz.Tv Network has a unique competitive advantage in our marketplace.”
The BlockStarz.Tv Network will give viewers and media buyers a sneak peak on Wednesday, May 1st at 9pm EST with pilot episodes of American Underground and Essince of Hip-Hop before launching its full programming lineup, which will air on Monday and Wednesday nights 9 pm-12 am, on August 26.

Forever Unorthodox Music Group Presents: Check - "Soul Story"
Courtesy Refe CEO.
"Soul Story" is Check's first official release with Forever Unorthodox Music group, it was released on April 20th, 2013. The 11 track EP covers a variety of issues such as life choices, racial stereotypes, personal preferences along with some less intense and more relaxing subject matter. "Soul Story" is a complete combination of stimulating subject matter, uptempo production, and a deep lyrical touch. Singles from the EP, "High as F%#k" (Prod by AmpOnTheTrack) and "If You Didn't Know" Ft fellow ForeverUnorthodox artist Apollo B. Ex, have gain tremendous buzz resulting in over 5,000 plays on his SoundCloud page.
Hayze first linked with Apathy by chance, when the rap veteran walked in on a recording session of Hayze's at Smoke The World studios. "He sounded mad different than anything I was hearing at the time," recalls Apathy of the meeting. "Most fans would probably expect me to champion someone who has a similar sound as Demigodz or Army Of The Pharaohs, but that's exactly the opposite of what I hear from him, and it's what I dug about his music."
All told, The Smoker's Section is a project that shows the 22-year-old rapper continuing to grow as a person and as an artist, noting that it was the recent passing of his grandmother that encouraged him to put his all into his music. "With The Smoker's Section," explains Hayze, "I focused on this like it was the last thing I'd do, I took it that serious. There's a lot of soul in this music."
