Highway Yella Becomes First Swishahouse Artist to Appear on Atlanta’s DGB “Off The Porch” Series

S.E.A. nominated Mixtape Artist of the Year; Highway Yella has been making a positive impact in the music world. After helping Houston, TX’s Urban Goods give out five hundred book bags for back to school kids in August, Highway Yella started September off with more positivity.

Traveling to Atlanta, GA for his first appearance on Dirty Glove Bastard’s interview series, “Off The Porch,” found Highway Yella in good spirits. Not only is Yella the first SwishaHouse artist to appear on “Off The Porch,” he might also be the first to have his son appear with him.

“Man I just thought about it. I could be wrong but I think I may be the first rapper to literally have his kid on Dirty Glove Bastard (laughing). If not it still meant the world to me to have him as part of the interview,” said Highway Yella.

“POPPIN'” by CASINO ATX- Official Song Review

Poppin’ – CasinoATX

Song Review by Jay Benigno

Poppin’ sparked my intrigue, starting momentum with some sample DJ effects, followed by late night club vibes of high hats, 808 drums, violin strings and a 3-6 Mafia type hook. CasinoATX, from Austin, TX, jumps on beat with a comfortable southern flow sounding so at home on the microphone you can almost picture him tearing the club up at a live performance on 6th St. (At this point in the review I transition from Tidal to YouTube for the video.)

The video by Eric Sattler is well done. Great lighting, directing and amusing scene content. The tempo of the song combined with CasinoATX‘s lyrical macking makes this single fun, sexy and fly: definitely not a buzzkill for the ladies. This is a solid club record with great production and radio potential. CasinoATX’s subtle metaphorical songwriting is light enough that it doesn’t break up the flow. Poppinwill get the party started like an ice-cold bottle of that good champagne.

“Give It Your All”- Mike C Da Champ Interview

What first got you into music?

Mike C Da Champ: I was raised around music. My dad and grandfather owned a record store. My mom and grandmother kept me in a church choir. So music was in my blood and in my future.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Mike C Da Champ: I have worked with many artists in this industry. I wish 2 Pac or Pimp C were still alive would definitely say either one of them, but since they aren’t T.I. or Jay Z.

What is one message you would like to give to your fans?

Mike C Da Champ: One message I would give my fans would be- “Never stop chasing your dream”. People are going to love or hate you. Whether you are chasing your dream or not.

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Mike C Da Champ: If I wasn’t doing music right now I would be coaching football. I’ve always had a love for sports. Mainly football. I played when I was younger and was pretty good.

Do you sing in the shower? What songs?

Mike C Da Champ: Yes, honestly I think everyone sings in the shower. Last Two Dollars by Johnnie Taylor which is a blues song or Time Marches On by Tracy Lawerence which is a country song (laughs out loud.) Don’t judge me, I love music.

What’s next for you?

Mike C Da Champ: Next for Da Champ.  I’m currently working on a new album, “Resurrecting The Champ” and a joint project with Icewater Slaughter called ”OG Talk” and co-writing a country album.

SMGMT Lungz and Junior2Sav Release FEELINGS GET HURT prod. by JJRemix

After touching down in North West Arkansas (NWA,) Hafa Adai Media/ Signature Management music artist Lungz swiftly networked. Finding local creatives that would be interested in exploring opportunities in the indy music field was a priority.

Knowing that this region of Arkansas has major room for improvement in developing an actual Hip Hop scene only inspired Lungz even more, yet acquiring the talent and engineering skills of Junior2Sav from bEAtZwRAp Soundlab was an unforeseen blessing that caught Lungz by surprise.

“I knew I could find artists to develop but discovering Junior’s work on social media was a total win,” said Lungz, “…Junior already has a loyal following, talent and work ethic to back it.”

Lungz continued, “I had this concept. A custom beat by JJRemix… with a Paul Wall sample… JJ used the sample I suggested.. and it was banging like King Kong in the mother fu**in trunk. I knew Junior2Sav would be the perfect feature for the record. He had the most legit studio in the area as well. It was inevitable that we would create something. NWA has never experienced a song like this locally.”
