COOLIO TAKES US ON A RIDE

Born Artis Leon Ivey, Jr., Coolio was the epitome of West Coast Hip-Hop. It was in 1987 when he would ask the world “Whatcha Gonna Do?” with his first single of the same name. The artist and songwriter broke into the industry when he signed to Tommy Boy Records in 1994.

His first album It Takes a Thief received praise as view of gangsta rap that was more lighthearted and fun. It would also produce the hit single “Fantastic Voyage” that would reach #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. It would set Coolio on the path of being a household name in Hip-Hop.

A GANGSTA’S PARADISE

In 1995 Coolio would team up with R&B singer LV to release “Gangsta’s Paradise” which was featured on the Dangerous Minds movie soundtrack. This would his biggest hit to date, securing Grammys for Record of the Year and Best Rap Solo Performance in 1996. The song was also a nominee at the MTV Movie Awards for Best Musical Moment.

Straight Official Magazine extends our condolences to his family and friends. As a celebration of Hip-Hop, lifestyle and culture, check out my personal favorite track from Coolio down below. Rest in peace, king.

Should Nikko Baby Be Crowned For R&B In Chicago?

®Nikko Baby 2022

If there were any question that NIKKO BABY would be a star, you can throw that out the window. The
epitome of never judge a book by its cover, Nikko’s voice will melt your soul and make you feel his pure and raw emotion.

His musical influences include Al Green, Barry White, Heavy D, The Notorious B.I.G. and Michael Jackson to name a few. This Chicago native is a student of his craft. Falling in love with music and entertaining from the very young age of 10. He credits his first performance of Silent Night and his ballsy display to Kwiet Storm as catalysts that made him take music more seriously.

BODY OF WORK

He lives to perform live and create visual stories with his music in the studio. Over the years, Nikko Baby has had the opportunity to collab with fellow Chicago native Tink on the buzz worthy track “Freak Like Me” which has gained massive streams worldwide. Yakki Divioshi (Pop Lord), Kevin McCall to Z Money and has also developed a strong partnership with Chicago’s very own Young Chop.

A CHOICE TO MAKE

Performing and writing R&B for himself & many well known household names that include super
producer Jazze Pha, were not quick gateways to success for him. For a few years Nikko had one foot in R&B and the other consumed in street life. After a wake up call in Chicago late fall 2018, he realized that music had to be 10 toes down for survival.

While recovering from being shot, he created a cover to Meek Mill’s Save Me as a form of release. Listening to this song you felt his pain, his yearning for a better way out and an immense need to express. This one song embodies the feel and sound you want to have each and every time you hear his music. Stay
tuned for more from Nikko, with every new release he is sure to make you feel it.

LAH’Q900 DROPS A NEW VIDEO FOR “I CAN’T WAIT” OFF HIS LATEST EP “HERE I COME”.

Budding North Dallas Texas artist LAH’Q900 has definitely made his presence felt this past summer. With two major singles “Joy Rider” & “I Can’t Wait”. Most compare him to the late great MO3 or Kevin Gates. To be honest with you it’s safe to say that Lah’Q is in a lane of his own.

Certainly, Lah’Q is independently motivated and family oriented. He has been groomed under the umbrella of Stack Mode Brothers with veteran MC’s Mr. Lucci and CEO Stack Mode Fats. A formula that looks like it can’t be tampered with because it was built on solid foundation since day one.

NAWF DALLAS AMBASSADOR C – FATS & LAH’Q900

Above all “I Can’t Wait” visual shot and directed by Half Pint Filmz. Is definitely one that fans can sit back and enjoy without hesitation. It’s not too late to catch up while you can because LAH’Q900. Definitely has this lane on lock and looks like no time soon he is relinquishing the grip he has on the music scene.

Make sure you go follow Lah’Q @lahq900 on social media as well as check his latest EP “Here I Come” Out Now On All Streaming Platforms!!!!!!!!!!!!
