Video: Young Balli f/ Uncle Balli "When You Shake That"

Matt: Hailing from Miami, FL (Liberty City), Young Balli grew up with a strong passion for the art of Football. At a young age he had the pleasure of winning a national title with Charles Hadley Liberty City Warriors, which was also coached by infamous Miami rapper Uncle Luke. After graduating from Miami Jackson Senior High School, he later attended Dean College in Franklin Massachusetts on a football scholarship. Torn between his love for the sport and his own personal hardships of making it in the NFL, he turned to music as an escape. Although music was always in the picture it became pivotal as the dream of playing football slowly faded.

After losing his spot on his college football team and being forced to go back to the poverty-stricken streets of Liberty City, music became his first priority. It was more than just flowing to a beat. Music paved the way and became a lane that he could enter to discuss everyday struggles of being a black youth. Music started to become the only way to express his words and speak on personal views, not just life, but all the waves that come along with growth. It was the great escape.

Sitting in on personal studio sessions since a newborn baby with his father, Rodin Francis Sr. also known as Uncle Balli, he naturally adapted to the essence and flow of the rap music culture.

Recently signed to the Independent record label Straight Piracy Productions, Young Balli plans on setting the tone and giving a fresh new flow to music.

Recently, Young Balli released the first visual, “When You Shake That” from his forthcoming EP, Testing Waters, which will be released this fall.

Press Release: Biggest B in Hip-Hop Has Arrived (@ToniMonroe)

Press Release: Biggest B in Hip-Hop Has Arrived

Todd: Having already shared the stage with the likes of everyone from Mobb Deep and Lil Kim to DJ Quik, Lady of Rage and even MC Hammer, Van Nuys, California's very own prodigal daughter, Toni Monroe, has finally arrived.

In 20-12, Monroe dropped her highly impressive, yet criminally slept on, 13 track premiere mix-tape entry, Big Girl Cookies: First Batch, hosted by veteran West Coast producer, DJ Crazy Toones. Since that time, this, former, self-proclaimed BBE [Big Beautiful Emcee] has been "putting in much work," not only continuously honing and perfecting her craft, but also devoting an equal amount of time & focus to both health and fitness, resulting in a commendable 75 pound weight loss -- This girl is on FIRE right now!

On her brand new DJ Battlecat laced offering, "Get Dough," featuring vocalist Andre Wilson, out today, Toni proclaims, "Gimme mine up front, no negotiations or affiliations, just ME! I know exactly what they want, conversation over compensation, trust me..." The bouncy, radio ready, future, hit dance-floor anthem, which samples the Wham classic "Everything She Wants," is only a teeny tiny taste of what's still yet to come from this super sexy, crazy fly femcee with the fierce fiery flow! So stay tuned...

"Get Dough," courtesy of Dotted Line Entertainment, is available now on iTunes and other major digital outlets...

Audio: @Chippy_NonStop - "ME + YOU" (feat. Kitty)

Audio: Chippy NonStop - "ME + YOU" (feat. Kitty)

A.T.: Demonstrating Chippy's pop culture prowess, the track gives off immediate J-Pop vybz through bouncy, melodic synths, bubblegum pop lyrics, and even a double-time breakdown with a MIDI guitar solo a la Dance Dance Revolution. With the lines, "we can grab a burger and a milkshake at the drive through / catch a late night movie you can call me your boo" and "when I look into your eyes I see everything I like," the track demonstrates the fusion of coy sexuality and childlike innocence typical of J-Pop/K-Pop culture. "I wrote this song about the more innocent parts of relationships.
