T-Quest Music Review: Jamel Deon

T-Quest Music Review
#GetSOM #TQuestGLM
As a radio personality & a tastemaker in this music industry, I’m always listening for the next big hit. My emails be flooded with music and most of the time I’m disappointed but not this time around. I’m so happy that Brian Tyrie founder of TalentWav who handles all marketing and promotion management sent this jewel to me. Allow me to introduce to you recording artist by the name of Jamel Deon. He has a single out right now called Deposits (I Want It All) Feat. Rob Monday & Kajuan & you must listen to it.
When I first heard the record, I was hooked. The beat as a west coast vibe & reminded me of a Dr. Dre, Snoop dogg vibe. The singer on the hook was the icing on the cake. One listen & you would automatically think that this was a main stream collaboration of talent artists who are about to take the industry by storm. This song as a bounce and reminds me of being a youngin seeing things I desire to one day have for myself.
What sealed the deal for me was the music video. Clean cut , straight to the point and not over the top. Visually you can easily engage,  not too flashy so you have a chance to not only enjoy the video but can still manage to hear the content in the lyrics. Special shout out to the director Tanzi Media. You did a great job on this one so I suggest you all go check it out.
The  song as well as the music video has my stamp of  approval. I will be putting it in rotation as well as telling my musically colleagues to check it & put it in rotation as well. I’m looking forward to hearing & seeing more content from Jamel Deon, Rob Monday & Kajuan. Stars on the rise & this is only the beginning. Make sure you follow, stream & keep up!

The T-Quest Show: Tony Parker Jr.

The T-Quest Show

What’s good everyone, it’s your favorite blogger  T-Quest back with you all again to give you an inside scoop of some new talent that came my way. Let me introduce you all to Tony Parker Jr!

Tony Parker Jr. 

Djuan Corneilous Towner A.KA. Tony Parker Jr. was born on November 15, 1975 to Robbie Towner in St. Louis, MO where their family would relocate to Chicago, IL 3yrs later. With Chicago becoming his hometown he would later discover rap at the age of 8. He started his first rap group called “The Shock Masters” which consisted of himself, his older brother Cedric Towner, and two childhood friends
from the neighborhood.

At the age of 12, Tony would be faced with unfortunate family diversity. He as well as his brother and 3 younger siblings were placed into
foster care. With these adjustments he took full advantage of furthering his musical sense by joining the church choir and learning to play the drums. From there school band at Paul Robinson High School where he attended.

At the age of 15, his adoptive mother took him to his first music seminar. This would be when he really fell in love with music. As Djuan Towner aged he kept at it and produced and wrote many songs still now unheard. He has performed at different venues throughout Kenosha, WI bringing massive crowds like June Tenth, Chasers, Brat Stop, The All White Party and Carthage College under his first stage name “Westside”.

He would later change his name to “Tony Parker Jr.” because he felt he needed something catchier. Tony Parker Jr considers himself as an Artist. He writes music geared towards an open age of listeners young and old. His style is laid back, upbeat and consistent with today’s era. Tony Parker Jr. would like to give a word of advice. “If you have a dream, never give up, real dreams do come true. You just have to keep pushing and keep your faith, and eventually it’ll become your reality.” TP

Check out his new hit “I Win” streaming on all major platforms.

The Quest Chronicles: SpazzOut Baby!

#GetSOM #TQuestGLM

Lately I been booked to host a few events all over the US & have been quite impressed. The artists have shown me that they’re all are not the same. There’s a certain type of dark shadow over the new generation rap music but can’t over shadow the light. Recently, I hosted Virginia’s very own Dj Spazzout  1k Artist Showcase in North Charleston, South Carolina. He had artists from South Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, New York & more to be apart of the competition.

This was the showcase to be apart of. The prizes  consisted of cash, music video, marketing services, radio show interviews, magazine spreads & more. The artists came & shut the show down! Keeping it real, I love a diverse show so I was hoping that every artist that signed up wasn’t ALL trap artists. Even though the majority was,  they put their spin to it & made up for it.

So many talented unique individuals that I’m honored to continue to connect with and help build with. As a host and a tastemaker in this industry it’s refreshing to meet gifted, go getting HUMBLE artists. Yes, many are new to the game and may need some guidance when it comes to the business part of it but that’s what I’m here for. It’s my pleasure to help them all take it to the next level because they deserve it!

Special should out to Dj Spazz for putting together such a legendary showcase for his birthday & did it all from out of state! Now that’s incredible! The place was packed & filled with great vibes! Can’t forget to shout out  Ashley  Burkes – The Duchess Co (Public Relations), Jonathan Penn of Pennhouse Productions & Recording Artist Lady J!

The T-Quest Show Interview w/ Aye Nyce

What’s good everyone, it’s your favorite blogger T-Quest back with you all again to give you an inside scoop of some new talent that came my way. Let me introduce you all to Aye Nyce!

Aye Nyce

Aye Nyce was born originally in the caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago . Even though he’s been doing music for quite some time as his passion, it wasn’t until 2005  when he decided to take his music career more serious. It was in 2007 when he debuted his first official single titled “Strutta Walk” with Chris Scholar. In no time the single took off & instantly went viral on the internet. Musically, things started to go so well that within a year, Aye Nyce was apart of his first official tour. He got the opportunity to be apart of the “Stop the violence tour” w/  a DJ from the hit movie You Got Served! A moment in time he would never forget.

This was only the beginning for Aye Nyce as he started receiving offers from record labels. It was in 2009-2010 he got another great opportunity to open up for Wiz Khalifa on his “Wake n Bake” Tour as well and for Gucci Mane & Brick Squad Ent in 2011. Although Aye Nyce would always have a love for music in 2013 he switched gears a little bit and started boxing. Unfortunately shortly after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. A minor set back for a quick yet strong comeback.

Recovering from cancer, he was more than determined to turn things back around. Aye Nyce slowly begun to  get back into music by performing and doing radio interviews on the regular. On the rise and forever building his career he started his “Vibe With Me” clothing line to switch the game up then dropped his single which went viral!

Things were looking great but once again life took another turn. 2018 was a very rough year for him from being homeless to losing his job. Even though it was a tough time, he didn’t allow it to break him because the following year he dropped his single ” Where my Shake at” and been on tour & performing even since. Now it’s time to see what 2020 has in stored for this inspiring hard working  artist by the name of Aye Nyce! Check out hit single :Where My Shake Out” below & follow him on social media.

Brandon James and Nolen Entertainment Presents Soulful Sundays

September 22, 2019

Soulful Sunday’s been on my radar for sometime now and everyone who love’s music the way I do should have been in the building this incredible Soulful Sunday. Brandon James and Nolen Entertainment has sparked again, with amazing talent. The entertainment was phenomenal at the Debonaire Social Club 1575 N Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago IL, Hosted By Ron Baker Jr.

Brandon James really puts on an amazing show, so soulful and smooth he really knows how to move the crowd, with the notes that comes from within. The band is amazing great production and very skillful that’s some entertainment that deserves to be on every stage.

What I really respected about this event they had Hip-Hop Artist DiLLAnoiZ from SCG Records I can say I was feeling the bars and the production, he really puts on a good show. It was a good vibe, I appreciate good quality rap not all the gun violence and street music. I can tell DiLLAnoiZ has his on lane,I wanna wish him success on his music career.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Twelve Management  & Yung Blak Executives Media Group LLC.™ Recording Artist DelaFaye And Da’ Clutch really showed up and showed out, the whole ensemble and chemistry was together on point, DelaFaye catered to the woman and men, and especially with her latest single “Next Mistake” produced by LJ Holman Jr. on all streaming platforms and online stores. She came in the building looking like a star. I can tell you just wait on her mainstream appearance. Every note they hit I felt love with chills. Overall great show with a five star review…

Life Expectancy: Money, Health & Hip Hop by DJ Layne Luv

How Can We Make A Healthy Lifestyle Cool In Hip Hop? 

In the United States, being a young & black guarantees a person born under those circumstances a significant amount of obstacle & struggle. Not only is the African American still inferior economically, the race’s environment has a high percentage of being subject to, poor diet, questionable healthcare (which means they can’t afford adequate treatment for disease), and violence (whether it be amongst each other or by the hands of law enforcement). Even in a time where the life expectance for the average human is 75, throughout time, a lower number has always been the case for the African American male. This is because the African American race has always had to survive under the most stressful conditions dating back to slavery. But my question is, why isn’t health and money for healthcare brought up more in the Hip-Hop community? How Can We Make A Healthy Lifestyle Cool In Hip Hop? Is it because it doesn’t weigh in on the “cool” factors to talk about? Is it because dying or the threat thereof  has become the ultimate badge of honor? Why are we still having to do fundraisers and benefits for disease treatment and funerals? What financial plans are in place for rappers, DJ’s and B-Boys when they get sick or expire?

These are tough questions, however most of these issues could be solved with the proper funding and education around the matter of Hip-Hop and Health. We just recently lost Prodigy of Mobb Deep who battled sickle cell all his life. Sean Price of the group Heltah Skeltah passed away in his sleep in 2015. Heavy D died from a blood clot in his lung but it was later found out he did in fact have heart disease. Big Pun actually died of cardiac arrest.

I’m from Columbus Ohio, so even though this is a national publication, I want to honor an iconic rapper from my city who was special to us in the #614 and recently passed away… Sheron “Neswordz” Colbert  #RIH

Now let’s stop for a second, because I don’t want to get into the rappers that died at the hands of violence because that’s not where I’m going with this blog.

This is my point:

Hip Hop will be 44 years old this year. This means that the pioneers of Hip Hop are either senior citizens or on their way to being senior citizens. This means (God forbid) we may be losing a lot more Hip Hop icons in the “hopefully” distant future. But I’m noticing the mortality rate decreasing in age within the culture and I wanted to bring awareness to it in this blog.

One thing I loved about our last presidential administration, Big Up Obamas!, is that the Hip Hop community put them in office and President Barack and First Lady Michelle made it their business to bring awareness to healthcare and education directly to the minority in America.

How Can We Make A Healthy Lifestyle Cool In Hip Hop? 

How can we make LIVING cool in Hip Hop? How do we celebrate Life instead of Death? And most important, how do we put Financial well-being and Health together in this culture?

It definitely takes money and good decisions to be healthy. And maybe that’s why a healthy lifestyle isn’t cool to most young adults. Because Hip Hop from the beginning was all about taking the risk. Living on the edge. The new Rock N Roll. While Jay Z’s new 4:44 album is a great album to raise consciousness, the radio still bellows “Percocet, Molly Percocet” in regular rotation. Twerking videos and Drug money to the ear still resonates among adolescence. I get it! A safe lifestyle is a boring lifestyle. But yet, after the facade is lifted, and something tragic happens, all of the sudden we see that the rapper with money to the ear doesn’t really have sustainable income to treat the calamity.

Here’s this…The hardbody has always been the thing in Hip Hop, but what you don’t realize is Will Smith, LL Cool J, 50 Cent, Fantasia and Ashanti live very healthy lifestyles. They don’t engage in Marijuana, Alcohol or any other recreational drugs. Rumor has it that rapper Future…lol….doesn’t drink Lean or pop pills…but he advertises it to the youth in his music. So from that standpoint, what’s being fed to the public may appear to be a cooler lifestyle, trust me, eating right and adding exercise to your lifestyle will increase your chances of living a long and productive life.

Am I the old head in the room? Probably. But that doesn’t mean I can’t put this On The Table (Pun Intended) If you are one those people that just so happens to want to pursue or are pursuing a career in Hip Hop. Please take your health seriously. Black N Milds look cool until you get lung cancer. Sleeping with Twerk video models are cool until you get HIV. Living reckless with a bunch of beefs looks cool until we have to bury you and someone has to pick up those expenses. Live for today but plan like you will live tomorrow. Put a financial plan in place so that if anything does happen, you have your family taken care of.

It’s a new day! Taking care of yourself and your family is the “New Gangsta”

[NEWS] Trans Man Expecting First Child

“As the pregnancy’s progressed, it’s like more and more obvious that it’s not just a guy with a beer belly,” Chaplow told CNN affiliate KATU. Unlike most first-time parents, Reese is a transgender man who is expecting a baby with his partner of seven years, Biff Chaplow, and the Portland, Oregon, couple will welcome a son in July.

[quote]”I think my body is awesome. I feel like it’s a gift to have been born with the body that I did, and I made the necessary changes so that I could keep living in it, both through hormones and through other body modifications,”[/quote] as shared in a video posted to the couple’s Facebook page. The 34 and 31 year old couple who embraced Chaplow’s niece and nephew in 2011, knew numerous transgender men who had possessed the capacity to have babies in a solid and mindful way. They needed their pregnancy to be the same. Check out the video explanation below!
