Journalist Bae | BLACK MUSIC MONTH

It’s June! It may feel like one year you woke up and somebody on black twitter said “We’re going to make Black History Month last as many months as possible, SURPRISE – it’s Black Music Month!” The joke would be on you because that is not at all what happened. While the national celebration of Black History began in 1926, we didn’t bring the music celebration on the scene until 1979. Let’s examine how the acknowledgment has evolved and take a look at some of the artists at the forefront of this year’s observation.

Late to the Party

We can thank former President Jimmy Carter for the initial national announcement of the celebration. However, the appreciation month did not become official until a bill was passed in congress only 24 years ago in 2000 (, 2024). For that, we can give a round of applause for activist Dyana Williams.

Her platform set forth the ideology that music has been a tool of black history preservation since before any official recording. Many share the same sentiment that the colonizations of African [Americans] has watered down the culture. Black Music Month is meant to praise the evolution of black music and its contribution to various genres.


The first ever celebration was held on the White House Lawn and included the likes of Chuck Berry and Billy Eckstine (UCCS). Now let’s take a look at some of at some artists who are literally ones FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS!

  • KING OF RAGTIME: Scott Joplin
  • FATHER OF GOSPEL: Thomas A Dorsey
  • FATHER OF FUNK: James Brown
  • MUSICAL THEATRE FOREFATHERS: Eubie Blake & Noble Sissle (Shuffle Along)
  • MOTHER ROCK ‘N’ ROLL: Sis. Rosetta Thorpe
  • FATHER OF JAZZ: Duke Ellington
  • MOTHER OF BLUES: Gertrude “Ma” Rainey
  • MOTHER OPERA: Marion Anderson

Join the Action

This year, you can join the party in multiple ways. If you’re in Tennessee, you can join on the “Blackest Broadway” on June 16th. NYC can join at the Music & Power Awards on June 12th. In Georgia, you can attend the South GA Gospel Music Fest on June 8th. In Kentucky, there’s a Black Music Month Celebration at the Palm Room in Louisville that takes place on June 14th. And last but not least, if you’re here in the great state of Florida, join us June 9th in Miami Gardens at the Black Music Month Celebration! Search up your city and state to see any and all events going on for the next 21 days.

King ZG Celebrates 25 Year Anniversary of “Enemy of the Break”

Blog cover art featuring cover art for the re-release of the classic bboy-inspired album "Enemy of the break" by Pikaso and King ZG (formerly P-Kid and Zulu Gremlin).
Enemy of the Break

King ZG and Pikaso, formerly known as P-Kid and Zulu Gremlin, are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their collaborative album “Enemy of the Break”. The special digital re-release contains a slightly modified tracklist. The dynamic duo used the name S.W.A.T. which stands for Street Wise Art Technique. They’re reintroducing this iconic album to the digital realm through VIP Records/Empire.

Recorded back in 1999 in Daly City, California, “Enemy of the Break” was a product of the creative minds of P-Kid and Zulu Gremlin, produced under Zulu Gremlin Publishing BMI. The album features notable guest appearances from breaking legends like Ken Swift and Mr. Wiggles, embodying the essence of bboy culture.


The original vinyl release has more songs, which consisted of breakbeats produced by Zulu Gremlin. But he has since released those as part of his “B-Boy Music” series. The Cambridge dictionary defines breakbeats as “a type of electronic dance music that includes parts of funk and soul songs”. During parties, the DJ would loop the drum beat, without the vocals, so people could dance to it. Breakdancers would often dance and battle over those part of the songs. Later artists and Bboys like Zulu Gremlin would specifically create music to for dancers, like the breakbeats in his series.

Reflecting on the album’s inspiration, King ZG shares, “The album was inspired by our mission of being the last Bboys. This album was made in the late 90s with bboy mc legends of the 80s on it as a last collaboration after we left Rock Steady Crew, started our own companies, and pursued our next missions in the music industry.

Standout Singles

One standout track from the album, “I’m Sayin Though,” which features Ken Swift became a bboy anthem and was featured in the breakdance documentary film “The Freshest Kids.” The documentary was produced by Quincy Jones III’s QD3 Entertainment. The song was also recently used in an underground breakdance battle in Tokyo. You can watch the battle here (at the 1:15 mark).

The title track, “Enemy of the Break” has started taking off again being added to a few playlists recently as fans reconnect and new fans discover the classic sound.

“Enemy of the Break” is now available digitally worldwide on most major platforms via VIP Records/Empire. Relive the magic of this timeless album by listening now at

Khujo Goodie

Renowned as a cornerstone of the Atlanta Hip-Hop scene, Khujo Goodie has cemented his legacy since his emergence in 1995. As a founding member of the illustrious Goodie MoB collective, he honed his skills alongside industry giants like The Lumberjacks, OutKast, and the Dungeon Family.

Reflecting on the inspiration behind “Showtime,” Khujo Goodie shares, “Showtime is about being ready for whatever. It’s reintroducing Khujo Goodie as a top-tier MC that transcends all generations of hip hop. Showtime motivates the listener to want to win in whatever game of life they are playing. It can also serve as an anthem for a team needing that extra push to overcome adversity.

Khujo Goodie

Initially conceived for the upcoming football season, “Showtime” underwent a transformation at the hands of DJ Papi. While the original version featured sports references, they opted for a version with broader appeal, aligning with the universal themes of perseverance and triumph.

Khujo Goodie’s artistry extends beyond mere entertainment; it embodies a profound connection to his roots. Atlanta-born and bred, he recognized his destiny within the realm of Hip Hop from an early age. Co-founding Goodie Mob alongside Big Gipp, CeeLo Green, and T-Mo in 1994, the group fearlessly tackled societal issues such as racism, discrimination, geopolitics, and gentrification, leaving an indelible mark on Hip Hop’s landscape.

Khujo Goodie

Despite facing adversities, including a near-fatal car accident, Khujo Goodie persevered. He solidified his solo career with releases like “The Man Not The Dog,” which graced the Billboard Top 100 charts. The reunion of Goodie Mob for albums like “Age Against The Machine” and “Survival Kit” attests to their enduring legacy.

Looking ahead, Khujo embarks on a series of new singles, building upon recent releases and his new position as Global Ambassador of new music distribution company Maverick Global.

#SaturdaySpotlight featuring T.G.I. Free | @iamtgifree

(Photo Cred: Kaymakay Designs)


T.G.I.Free is quickly becoming a force to be recognized in Hip-Hop. The Naptown MC from The Far made his presence felt at Chreece Nap City All-Star last month performing alongside Jet Santiago and Skypp. A few weeks later, the city was scrutinized for a cypher that made it’s rounds.

Free alongside 4 other far eastside artists were the city’s “Redeem Team” as the How You What? Sophomore Cypher was the take that did not miss! T.G.I. took the anchor of that track meet and with powerful, gritty punchlines he closed it out like Michael Jordan in Game 6.



“Set You Free” is a 7 track production that highlights Free’s raw delivery and lyricism. From “10th Street” featuring Skypp to “Take My Crown” Free rode every track with purpose and precision over soulful samples from Isiah Darty (Zero) & Trashbaggbeatz. T.G.I. Free has the follow up to “Set You Free titled “Trust In Free” on the way later this year.

With the city of Indianapolis becoming the next city to produce the next big artist, Free has his cap in the circle and it ain’t safe! Check out T.G.I. Free alongside Jet Santiago in “Danger Zone” down below.


Stay tuned for “Trust In Free” from T.G.I. Free coming soon. Stream music on Apple Music & Spotify. Follow on social media:
