This is what Music should sound like! IACPlatform would like to introduce to you arising Star SunQueen Kelcey. That voice is an angel sent from above and the single is sure to move your soul.
SunQueen Kelcey is from Southern Pines, North Carolina, but currently resides in Greensboro, North Carolina. She has two things at the center of her music: self love, and sexual freedom. These are more than ingredients to her lyrics, they are her soul; and she has such a strong calling to these tenets that watching her at the mic is more than a concert. Her musical style is a genre-bending collage of hip-hop, soul, rock, and contemporary R&B, call it soul-rock. She is the center of a universal sound that aims to unite her listeners over a shared experience.
Most people that walk this earth never want to face what’s real. Most people complain about life and who did what to them. We are a people who never want to let go or take ownership. But Archangel tells the truth in his latest single Gotta Get My Sh#!t together.
This song stands out above many. The smooth rhythms of the instrumental produced by Christopher ‘Claws’ Stephens accompanied by the seductive saxophone played by Marque Boyd draws you in with little effort. Archangel delivers a touching story about day to day life and the struggles that the majority go through on a daily basis. This is hip hop at is best. But enough of what I think listen for yourself.
This single Gotta Get My Shit together can be heard on all music platforms.
The latest video by Twuan G, Tyke T and Jay Daskreet has black women all over loving the theme. The song is called She Was Black and it is such a beautiful representation of Real Black Love. Over the years Black Love and love for the Black Woman in general is not celebrated as often as it should be leaving women to feel less love for themselves and more live for superficial culture and ways. But I am very proud to say that this song and video brings self love back to the surface.
SheWasBlack ft Tyrone Stroble & James Cole Produced by Kenney Coleman
Visuals by C O Golden Directed by Antwuan Williams. This is a Short Film
What I loved most about the video is every woman was represented in their own sanctuary, every woman was treated with respect and every woman was held high like a queen. This mini movie held my attention for the entire time and there was not one vulgar instance in the production.
The beat prod by Dirtyfresh is catchy and a club hit for all ages and the content brought by each artist complimented it perfectly.
The song She was Black was recently released on all Music Platforms and the 3 artist that starred in the production can also be found on these streaming sites. Twuan G, Tyke T and Jay Daskreet.
Antwan Williams you are a visionary and we need more from minds like yours!

“I’m just tryin to get rid of all this dark energy that lingers,
you ain’t gotta lift a finger,
I’ll clean the house and burn the sage” Burning the Sage -Virghost

Good Intentions: This album Good Intentions is the first release that I’ve heard from this artist and I was moved. Moved by the production, lyricism, artistry and delivery. It’s very difficult to find an artist who can hit so many angles in their music, however he succeeded. My favorite track on the project “Burn the Sage” very relatable track since I am all about good energies and positive vibes. Good Intentions is a classic no skips needed work of art.
From the first track “The Spark” to the ending track “Never Die”; Good Intentions was a steady build up of Hip Hop. We say Hip Hop doesn’t exist in this day and age but Virghost took us back to the days when we could just press play and clean the house. I feel this Artist is going far. Unique Sound, Professional Brand and a Plan. I was very satisfied with this album. Keep Going Virghost!

eLiMenCe creates an atmosphere that calls for fans attention to detail. His beat production and meticulous rhyme skills showcases a level of talent that is second to none. Always a student, eLiMenCe uses his studies in English Literature to his advantage and incorporates literary elements and figurative language in his lyrics. Deeply rooted in traditional hip hop, eLiMenCe uses his MPC and old vinyl records to create his hard-hitting, lofi, boombap sound.
