#NAENAEONTHESCENE: K. MICHELLE CONCERT

kim

Happy Wednesday, its your girl NaeNae back with another #NaeNaeOnTheScene. A couple of weeks ago, Kimberly aka K. Michelle brought her The People I Used to Know concert to the city of Atlanta at Tabernacle. I became a fan of K. Michelle after hearing 0 Fucks Given mix tape back in 2012. So I hit the highway and drove 8 hours to see the Memphis native singer/songwriter and TV personality put on an amazing show and those visuals were dope. Checkout some footage below that I captured but its nothing like seeing her live. I definitely suggest going to see K. Michelle in concert when she comes to a city near you. You will not be disappointed.

As always its your girl NaeNae with that #NaeNaeOnTheScene.

[Event] Fleet dj’s of Georgia present Media Pass spotlight artist “King David”

King David

The Fleet DJs of Georgia aired their monthly show The Media Pass on February 20th, 2018 that specially featured the upcoming rising star King David @ChampWilson. He has a new single called “Malcolm X” that Fleet DJs Georgia will consistently promote.
King David was born David Wilson, and the Lord blessed him with a wide array of talents. He is able to reach deep within the heart of his audience with his insightful speeches, but he is also a gifted musician and heartfelt poet. His blend of rap borders with poetry and his lyrics have a very uplifting and inspirational power that connects with all people, regardless of their age, background or taste in music. King David Wilson has been releasing promo clips for tracks on his upcoming debut album, The Champion, leaving fans in anticipation for the first video to drop. David released his video for previous single, ‘Rise Up,’ available on iTunes and other streaming services.
The video itself – directed, shot, and edited by Mshon P- captures the spirit of the city and courses through several locations in Atlanta; alternating with shots of city landmarks as well as Atlanta’s biggest fans – Falcon’s fans.

If the inspiring and uplifting tone sounds familiar, it is because King David is part of a generation of producers/rappers connecting the dots between Gospel and Hip-hop. He has in essence taken the sound and attitude of hip-hop and incorporated it into his work. Take for example Kirk Franklin who has appeared on albums with Kanye West and Chance the Rapper. There exists a natural kinship that creates an atmosphere for artists like Kirk Franklin, Kendrick Lamar, and King David to endow as well as an unconventional way to express faith and send a message.

[Event] Fleet dj’s of Georgia Present “Media Pass” featured artist Jeff Chery

Jeff Chery

The Fleet DJs of Georgia aired their monthly show The Media Pass on February 20th, 2018 that specially featured the upcoming rising star Jeff Chery @JeffChery. He has a new single called “Price Tag” that Fleet DJs Georgia will consistently promote and assist to become a hit!
Jeff Chery, also known as the Haitian Mufasa, is hip hop’s newest
and fastest growing sensation! Having migrated from Haiti to
Brooklyn, NY at age 6, then moving to Atlanta, GA in his early 20’s,
Jeff Chery is boundless and so is his sound. His music is a beautiful
combination of colorful Haitian rhythms, traditional east coast grit
and the melodic bass of the Dirty South. His Haitian roots gives him
a sense of pride, will and determination that keeps him grounded,
while his American upbringing has helped him to develop the
boldness and audacity needed to stand out in this game.
And stand out he has! Jeff Chery is recently being featured on the
new VH1 television series Signed, a show where 3 music moguls,
Lenny S (Roc Nation), Rick Ross (Maybach Music) and The Dream
(Radio Killa Records) work to develop unsigned artists and turn
them into potential stars. The winners will ultimately have an
opportunity to be signed to a record label. Chery’s dauntless
personality, raw energy and overall lyrical prowess got the attention
of Rick Ross, who added a verse to Chery’s single “What You
Doin?”.
In the meantime, while the show is airing, Chery is continuing to
work on his music. His latest project, Roam, is not only a lyrical
expression of who he is as an artist, it’s also his verbal testimony,
detailing the hardships, trials and tribulations that most independent
music artists go through on their journey towards success. So please
stay tuned in to the Jeff Chery experience, for it is indeed a larger
than life roller coaster ride; gritty, fun, very personal and drippin’ in
sauce!
