Sometimes as a DJ, I might reminsce on those moments when I check my social media and email to fine pure talent and good music. It feels like forever since the last time that has happen.

Recently, during one of my Get Hip with Dj Mos Precious’s Web Series, I was honored to interview Sachhi from Tha Goonez Production team out of Kansas City, KS. We talked about some of his personal achievements which led to me meeting this very talented artist by the name of GrittySound from North Carolina.

GrittySound has one of the most amazing musical talent that I am not ashame to vouch for and push to the lovely readers of I have so much positive feedback for this brother, that I have to tell you all how i feel. Very rare, one of the most diverse sound I have heard since like forever. I love coming across music that has a consistent sound but yet so non-consistent. Teaming up with Tha Goonez for his last album release, I think was a very smart and stragetized move because you can feel their chemisty.

Sometimes, I think artists forget how important and crucial it is to have a good working relationship with producers versus getting leases off line. Not that I am knocking that hustle some producers choose, I am strictly highlighting that artists with a good relationship with a producer will help produce one helluva of a concrete project with a sound like none other.

Check out one of many classics titled “Cindrella” from upcoming artist {GrittySound} right here!!! I got you a exlcusive listen first!!!

[INTERVIEW] Get Hip W/DJ Mos Precious: Sachhi of Tha Goonez



Can you tell our readers a little about yourself? What’s your name and where are you from?

What’s good everybody, I go by Sachhi, I’m ¼ of a production group called Tha GoonEz and I’m from Kansas City.

Let us know what your social media is. How can my readers find you?

IG: @sachhismoov @thagoonez Twitter: @sachhismoov @thagoonez  Facebook: Tj Wynn Tha GoonEz SoundCloud: Tha GoonEz

How did music come about in your world?

I’ve always been around music and listened to music, I never thought it what would be something that turned into a passion of mind, though. Producing sort of just fell in my lap, so I took it and ran with it.

What do you find most challenging about the music industry? most complicated?

I find the most challenging parts of the music industry are getting your name out there coming from small markets and trust. Being from a small music market has it advantages though because it forces you to have to leave your comfort zone of home and really get out in the world.

Tell me about some of the people you’ve met while performing? some of the people you wish to meet during your journey?

While producing I have met a few A&R’s you have heard some of our music, I’ve met producers like Squat Beats and Cardo. I hope to meet a lot of my favorite artist young and old and hopefully even get to make some music with some of them.

What do you do when you aren’t  recording or rehearsing your music?

When I’m not cooking up some beats or digging for samples I’m chilling, playing Madden or 2K. I might read something from time to time.

How do you keep coming up with dope music? Any inspirations?

I get my inspiration from everywhere possible. Art, TV, life, women, society, basically any and everything. I draw a lot of inspiration from horror movies and everything that’s smooth. A weird combination huh

What has been the most challenging moment in your career and why?

The most challenging moment we have had a group is really finding our direction and which way to go. We got in this game with no knowledge, just a love, and passion to make good music that people will love. At a point, it was just like, what are we really doing? Are we just making beats or are we going to really get serious, understand this business and figure out how to turn a dream into reality?

Do you have anyone that has influenced you in your career? Who and Why?

My influences are Kanye, Kobe, The Gorrilaz, Jodeci, 2 Pac, Three 6 Mafia, Lil Flip and the group I’m in Tha GoonEz. Each one has impacted me and my music, each one in different ways. It helps me to be able to draw ideas from so many places because I’m not just in a box.

Where do you see yourself in the next couple of years?

I don’t see myself working a 9-5 that’s for sure. But honestly, I see Tha GoonEz having a couple of songs that we’ve produced on nationwide stations, success for every member of the group and all of our families taken care ofZ

Is there anyone you would like to give a shout out to

Man, everybody who ever believed. Cause we all know it has been an easy run but no matter what is always been fun. My Moms, Tha GoonEz; Drizi (@DriziDre), Goof (@DaBGxd) and Tez (@_iLiveMusic). Reese Money, Roz, Darius, Mike, Myles (#prayforMyles), Norm, Marcus Butler, all my nieces, AyEl, 1Bounce, Mae C, J Tone, Dame, A’Sean, Bucks, Star B, Gritty, I could go all day. All of KC!!

If you can turn back hands of time to finish something, what would it be?

I honestly wouldn’t change anything. Everything we’ve been through was a learning experience, without it we wouldn’t be here.

Anything else you want to drop on us before we get out of here? Any Breaking News or Exclusives?

Just stay tuned in all year, we’re coming with consistent quality music all year, in all genres we can. We got some records on Bucks Baby’s and AyEl’s new mixtapes dropping in February and also have some surprise collabs and placements coming. Don’t want to speak on too much soon but I’ll definitely keep everybody updated.

STRAIGHT out of the Show Me State by way of St. Louis, I bring you upcoming artist Tim B Da God. I remember when we first met like it was just yesterday. I must say that when we reconnected, I can surely see the growth in his music. The increase in his marketing and better yet the fact that he is all about the grind and investing himself.

You guys are in for a special treat because this young talent his telling you guys about a sack he is trying to get. In his words, “Got my money right, don’t know how to act, I can’t chase a hoe, Imma chase a sack.” Translate, I am going to get to the money, be focus and grind. We can apply this lines to our life very easily because we all on the move tryna get a sack of money.

I feel this song is going to grow on the DJs because its strong bass line and its very smooth for us to blend and we can surely drop this song in a packed club and watch the crowd create money dances, lol. I love blogging about artists I have watched evolve over the last couple of years. Tim B Da God is working smart and very wise, I can say that his focus is going to take this song far and to radios, DJs and promoters in markets along the riverside of Mississippi. This song is surely not just limited to the market it was created in but is adaptable in other markets like Kentucky, Chicago, ATL, and of course the southern states.

Some of his other inspirations come from R&B King, R. Kelly, Young Jeezy, Fabolous & Yo Gotti. Not only is Skee Franchise an artist, but the name also represents a brand. A brand that also encompasses individuality & style. Skee Franchise describes himself as an artist that has street-based style, someone who is informed & educated but not detached. He also believes that having big dreams and working to fulfill them can lead to wealth whilst having a street mentality but a business mindset.” The latest project is being released on Skee’s own record label, The Fraternity Inc Records.

a TALENTED LADY WHO GOES BY THE NAME OF DRIA E,  born on May 25, 1993 in Memphis, TN. She first started pursuing a career as a hip-hop artist at the age of 16. She frequently wrote lyrics in her purple notebook and sometimes thought of catchy lines during school.”Whenever I think of a good verse during school or whenever I’m out, I just put it in my phone for later.” Her inspirations are Soulja Boy Tell’em and Wiz Khalifa.

IN THE ERA OF MUSIC, FEMCEES AND FEMALE SINGERS ARE OUTNUMBERED  BY MALE ARTISTS. In 2013, Dria E became the first female rapper to be featured on Montreal’s “Future Hits”, a segment that allows independent artists to be heard on 94.7 Hits FM. Her biggest single, ‘Clockwork’, also received radio play in various areas of the country such as Texas, Louisiana, California, and Tennessee just to name a few places. She has also hosted events with celebrities such as Spectacular aka Yella Boy from R&B group ‘Pretty Ricky’. In 2014, Dria E decided to take a hiatus to pursue a post-secondary education. However, she has now made a comeback with her latest, self-released project ‘More Than You Know’ in the works and is expected to be released in 2017.



The first single, ‘Torn’, has an abstract concept; “The true subject is about how I feel conflicted regarding my love for music but how I am focused on my graduate school career. However, the lyrics seem as if the subject is about being in a relationship and catching feelings for another person. This concept helps my music relate to the public but speak my personal message simultaneously”. (‘Torn’ will be available for stream and sale on January 13, 2017 on Spotify, SoundCloud, ITunes, and Apple Music). As an independent artist that is taking her career into her own hands, she is slowly becoming a new face that hip hop won’t forget.

The year of 2016 has officially closed out and I must say that it has been a good year for R&B. One of the artist I would have to highlight as the new year of 2017 kicks off is Sammie. When I was younger, I loved watching him especially on the hit song “Hardball”. The leading single for the movie Hardball, which was released in 2001.

The song reached number 77 on the “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” charts. This proves that he knows how to make chart topping songs. One of the traits that many artists like him have. I love listening to his newest release titled I’m Him. This song shows how much he has truly grown vocally and creativity over the decade he has been active in the music industry.

I’M HIM, the leading single to his new EP, showcases what he is planning to bring to the music world in years to come. As the title says, he expresses to a young lady that he will go to bat for her in all areas, just to show her that he is the perfect guy for her. While he sings his deepest thoughts to her, he also shows her that the guy she is dating is not right for her.  It is like a short film that is inviting you into his world.
