#NAENAEONTHESCENE | A DAY WITH GUNNA

Gunna

It’s been a long time and I shouldn’t of left you. Its your girl NaeNae with #NaeNaeOnTheScene back bringing you some dope content. This past Friday I got to spend all day with YSL Records artist, Gunna as he brought his DripFest concert to Indianapolis. My brand, Chasing My Dreamz and Tahlia L’Oréal with Tahlia TV teamed up to capture Gunna’s time in the city from press run at the radio station (Hot 96.3) then headed out to eat at Exotic On The Run (which the food was on point) to sound check before hitting the stage at the Old National Centre. 

 

 In 2016, the world started to take notice of this College Park native, born Sergio Kitchens after he hopped on YSL Records owner, Young Thug’s track ‘Floyd Mayweather’ alongside heavy hitters, Gucci Mane and Travis Scott. Later that year, Gunna dropped ‘Drip Season’ mixtape and has been on go mode every since. Back in February, Gunna released ‘Drip Season 3’ mixtape featuring guest appearances from Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, Metro Boomin and others.
Thanks to Who Woulda Thought for allowing me to be able to spend the day with cool, laid back Gunna.
Until next time, its your girl NaeNae as always bringing you #NaeNaeOnTheScene with Straight Official.

Fleet DJs of Georgia Media Pass Ep. 5 Artist Bio: Kronic aka Yung Fresh

Kronic YungFresh

The Fleet DJs of Georgia aired their monthly show The Media Pass Episode 5 on March 27th, 2018 that specially featured the upcoming rising star Kronic, aka Yung Fresh. He has a new single called “Suh (Sis)” that Fleet DJs Georgia will consistently promote.

Kronic, aka Yung Fresh, is an up-and-coming artist from hip hop’s notorious Dirty South. His name is derived from the Greek word chronikos, which means “lasting a long time.” Kronic plans to do exactly that in the world of hip hop. Hailing from Tunica, MS, a small town located on the Mississippi Delta, Kronic didn’t let his circumstances or post code deter from his grind. He’s been writing and rapping since the age of 15.
Kronic is inspired by rappers who came before him and from his impactful life experiences. He uses his music to connect to his listeners, assuring them that they are not alone in their daily struggles. Kronic has dealt with adversity himself. In 2002, he lost his mother to a car crash. The loss was devastating, but Kronic music has provided a creative outlet and platform to share the message that anything is possible with God, hard work and dedication.

Kronic has opened for numerous major artists such as Soulja Boy, Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, Pretty Willie, Lil Boosie, and Plies. Kronic’s goal is to become a multiplatinum artist and to making “chronic” music. His latest project “Audio Diary,” hosted by Bigga Rankin, is available on MyMixtapez and Spinnilla. He is currently releasing videos from the mixtape and recording Audio Diary 2. Not only does chronic does “persisting for a long time” – it means constantly recurring and difficult to eradicate. Kronic is living up to his name and is here to stay.

Fleet DJs of Georgia Media Pass Ep. 5 Artist Bio: V.V.S.

VVS

The Fleet DJs of Georgia aired their monthly show The Media Pass Episode 5 on March 27th, 2018 that specially featured the upcoming rising star V.V.S. He has a new single called “When the Feds Came” that Fleet DJs Georgia will consistently promote.

V.V.S. is an acronym for “Very Very Slightly,” a way of describing the clarity of a diamond that is nearly flawless. When deciding on a rap moniker, that’s what Tennessee rapper V.V.S had on his mind: building a “flawless” career in the music industry. Born BJ Arnold in Haywood County, Tennessee, V.V.S. first decided to dabble in the rap game after encouragement from a childhood friend. Following the blueprint of his influences 3-6 Mafia and Master P, V.V.S. built his own recording studio and learned the nuisances of audio editing.

V.V.S also graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Entertainment and Music Industry. “I always had a business mind so I bought my own equipment so I wouldn’t have to be on a time limit in the studio. I like to cut the middle man out,” says the self-taught rapper. “I wanted to do a mixtape but hosts were charging too much so I learned how to chop up songs just like they did and put out my own mixtape series called Pimp Edition. I hosted several up and coming artist’s mixtape from my area.”

The Pimp Edition mixtape series earned V.V.S. a Knockdown Entertainment award for Mixtape Artist of the Year in 2011, and several other awards over the next few years. Currently, his hot record “Mac’N” is spreading through the Southeast and Midwest regions. With the clothing line to match, V.V.S. is building a major brand. His goal is to establish his own label, M.I.M Entertainment Publishing Company, all while continuing to hone his craft. He has accomplished that goal in the state of Tennessee as an audio engineer, ghostwriter and rapper.

His current single “When the Feds Came” depicts a common narrative in the streets: the Feds invading his community and hauling people off to custody. Lyrics like “Snakes in the garden, rats in the kitchen” allude to another urban trope: someone close snitching and being responsible for starting the federal investigation in the first place. The content and feel of the song resonates with urban communities that have witnessed this same narrative. “When the Feds Came” is the lead single for V.V.S.’s new Ep “Righteous,” set to release summer 2018.
