Ray’s Sketch of Life

Liotta was one of Hollywood’s hardest working stars. While known for several roles, his most memorable role was starring in “Goodfellas” alongside Robert De Niro & Joe Pesci as mobster Henry Hill. Another unforgettable performance was in the iconic film “Field of Dreams” and his portrayal of Shoeless Joe Jackson.

Liotta had countless films under his belt including “Cop Land”, “Corrina Corinna” and “Blow” where he played alongside Johnny Depp as Fred Jung, the father to Depp’s character George Jung. It was this role that was a personal favorite of mine. The heart-wrenching scene produced one of the film’s most memorable quotes.

Ray was a devoted father and husband. He most recently celebrated his engagement to Jacy Nittolo via social media. Liotta leaves her and his daughter Karsen Liotta, who is also following in her father’s footsteps to mourn his loss.

​R&B fans want that old thing back, and Bae Gii is going to give it to them. Her new release ‘On You’ produced by Mini on the Boards, don’t we just love when the sounds of R&B and Hip-Hop merge? It’s always the perfect verse over a tight beat.

​If you think R&B is dead, think twice. Bae Gii is a former girl group rapper turn singer, and is emerging as one of R&B’s saviors and will soon be joining the ranks of R&B’s next generation. R&B’s freshman cohort is breathing life back into the fading genre and Bae Gii is at the top of her class. Reminiscent of 90s R&B in its prime, she is all we loved about it. A little bit of edge, all the soul, and the perfect mixture of rhythm + blues. Her new single ‘On You’ has already generated quite the buzz, and fans are highly anticipating her accompanying video release.

​Bae Gii is what R&B fans have been longing for, with her sultry voice and unique style she is sure to revitalize the genre. She is the missing piece, and her fans can vouch. With her popularity growing, and music being streamed on all major platforms Bae Gii will soon be a household name dominating the R&B charts. Get hip.

About Bae Gii:

Gianni Chatman better known as Bae Gii is a Pop R&B singer, songwriter and actress. Originally from Boston, Massachusetts she now resides in Atlanta, Georgia. At 16, she formed the girl group B.O.Y. an acronym for Be Only You. B.O.Y used their music to spread love, positivity, and to address bullying. The group signed to AkademyRecords but later disbanded. Bae Gii is now focused on her solo career and will add to her growing list of accomplishments. She has opened for Lil Kim, performed at Birthday Bash Atlanta, and toured nation-wide. She released her first single in 2019, and later won best new artist in 2021 with Meet The Underdogs.

Triggerrun Turns Up With Latest Single

The Real Dj Spins Got The Chance To Chop It Up With Triggerrun Recently And Got To Get The Inside Scoop On The Groups Latest Moves As Well as All There Is To Know About The Group And Whats To Come In 2022

What is your Stage Name?
TRIGGERRUN: Knegil, H3theArtist and Syncere

Please tell us where you’re from?
Atlanta by way of Albany (229)

What first got you interested in the entertainment industry?
For Knegil, passion for music started at an early age with my father being in a singing group Joe Page & the Diplomats and mother sang Opera style in the church choir and played piano so it was innate to a sense. In elementary, I would follow suit in music as I played violin and saxophone through middle/high school. However, it was New Edition and Michael Jackson that I aspired to at an early age.

For me, H3, I grew up in a house of music appreciation. The soundscape of my home was as such: My mother would reimagine songs in a choral/operatic fashion, my father would croon in the shower with melodic rhythm and blues overtones, and my big sister would be practicing classical music on our Baldwin piano in the garage. Also, during my childhood, all of the programs I loved the most were complete compositions ranging from the theme songs of: The Electric Company, Sesame Street, Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood, Johnny Quest, Space Ghost…The Facts of Life, Different Strokes,etc. No matter what you turned to, the musical complexity of compositions were of the highest level. This was inspiring to me and setting the stage for my future aspirations. The proverbial moment of my musical awakening was the Motown 25 Review, when Michael Jackson took to the stage to usher in a new movement in entertainment. When I saw him perform…on that night…I was forever transformed. I knew then that I would pursue a career in the music industry.

Who and/or what inspires you to create?
The inspiration comes from the pure love of the musical art form and the ability to create an arrangement of sound thus turning it into a beautiful masterpiece.

Creating art is subjective and is the highest form of self-expression. Through self-expression in any form, in any genre, there is freedom. The freedom that you have in your expression translates to those that witness your art, whatever that may be, to experience freedom for themselves.

How would you describe your sound?
An eclectic mix of East Coast meets the ATL Dirty South fusion.

What is your creative process like?
You can never plan to capture magical moments. However, we listen to every genre and form of music for inspiration.

Our most magical creative moments come by way of happenstance. So our process is simple, whatever feels good and sounds good in the moment. It’s all emotion. Whenever or wherever we catch a vibe.

Our process is to simply capture the moment by recording it on the spot to revisit later. We create a safe space where we give one another the creative freedom to share ideas no matter how “off-the-wall” it may be. In that space, there is honesty and support. Not all ideas are used, but all ideas are allowed to be expressed.

What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
It doesn’t matter! Coming from the TRUE school my favs are Rakim, Nas, Tupac, Biggie, Outkast, NWA as each one of these artists changed the face of hip-hop.

If you could open a show for any artist who would it be?
Man tough question… H3…That is tough, it would be great to open for MC Hammer, or any of the icons that are Hip Hop Royalty: LL Cool J, Dougie Fresh, etc. It would be dope to open up for J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Silk Sonic…I mean…if they are a vibe…it will be a pleasure, cause The Trigger is a whole vibe!

What is one message you would give to your supporters?
Never give up your dreams. Music is for the young at heart, stay on your grind & set the narrative.

What is the most useless talent you have?
Knegil: Whistling.
H3: My most useless talent is the one that I don’t use. I don’t feel I have any useless talent. But I do have talents that are least utilized. And sometimes, even my most utilized talents become dormant due to inactivity. As an artist, you must continue to stir your gifts.

What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
Youth sports mentoring, giving back to the youth which is what I did on my hiatus from the music business.
H3: If I wasn’t doing music, I’d probably be acting and studying the craft more. I enjoy the art of storytelling and stretching my potential and taking on different modes of thinking. That’s hardwired in my personality.

Who are some artists you admire and why?
Rakim is one of the cornerstones that the foundation of hip-hop was built. His style of MC’ing and lyricism still reigns supreme until this day as one of the ill-est to ever spit. H3… I’ve always admired, and am a fan of, Busta Rhymes. He’s a “linguistic mad man”. His CRAZY performance energy and verbal flow has always been amazing to me. He’s Kinesthetic!! I am drawn to that! I also love Soul /R&B Artists with clever and conversational lyrics such as: Musiq Soul Child and Ne-Yo.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Knegil: Stay humble, be prepared and wait your turn. And when opportunity presents. Kill It!
H3: Walk quiet and carry a big stick. We have always been about action and execution.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
Knegil: The stigmatism and negativity (elaborate)
H3: Expand the musical limitations. Allowing the creativity of artists to breathe in the industry and allowing for diversity of styles and musicianship to take place at higher levels across the board. There’s so much potential in artists. The industry tends to pigeon hole an artist into one faction of his or her expression. We are all living our dreams out loud…Why limit the dream?

What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?
Next, is winning awards/nominations on this new independent platform while transcending and elevating to higher levels of achievement in this game. Having our music and our likeness used in feature films, games, soundtracks, and other intellectual properties to establish our legacy and dominance in the game.

What is your social media?
How can people get in contact with you? IG: @triggerrun; FB: Triggerrun Trp; Tik Tok @triggerrun; YouTube: Triggerrun

Benny The Butcher Butchers Tye Harris’ Name

Benny the Butcher made mention of this phenom during a recent interview with Ebro Darden. But he called him Tye Ferris and not Tye Harris. Though it was an honest mistake it led viewers to wonder, Who Is Tye Harris? When you hear recording artist Tye Harris of Dallas, Texas you imagine hearing an eclectic mix of Hip-Hop, R&B, Rock, Jazz and even operatic elements, however when you see Tye Harris you are instantly impressed with who he is. Growing up in Dallas certainly shaped him into the artist that he is. Burgeoning from the impoverished Areas of the city certainly inspired him to see the world differently than his everyday peers. Through his development, music became the soul food for nurturing his environment. Music is his love language. When you speak with Tye Harris (not only about music) you are impressed with his confidence, wisdom, and outlook. You get an opportunity to witness the maturation of a true artist.

His current single “Asphalt and Concrete” is an ode to him leaving the thought processes of surviving the streets and him making the conscious effort to start thriving in his life. Thriving by going to the next level as an artist. Tye has begun working on his first global commercial album release with the assistance of My Coterie Production Studios, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, Chris Godbey, and many more. This project will be poignant, full of depth, and sonically unique. There is no other way for Tye Harris to be.
