Omega Beams by Jun10r

Omega Beams| Jun10r

by Joshua Blair42275845_894732357386848_8463096433858314240_n

You would usually spot Omega beams from DC Comic Villain, Darkseid, but in this comic book, Memphis native, Jun10r, is the villain and showing no mercy.

Applying pressure and bringing the game to its knees, Jun10r’s “Omega Beams” escorts listeners through his dark maze of middle fingers to clout, imaginary competition, and anything else that isn’t equivalent to perfection. To meet the dynamic of the lyrics, the instrumental delivers a nostalgic touch compared to trying your damnedest to beat the villain in the last level of your favorite video game. But in this game, the villain wins.

“Omega Beans” prod by Baldmane is featured on Jun10r’s five-track EP, Year of the 10, which can be streamed on SoundCloud, Spotify, & other major streaming sites.

Still unsure of who Jun10r be? Have no fear. Load up, count to 10, put your hands in the air for the villain, and pray you don’t get attacked by “Omega Beams”.

About Jun10r: Primogeniture is the state of being the firstborn child. As his name suggests, Jun10r (also known as “10” and “Cadillac Jack”) wears this title as a badge of honor. From listening to Nas’ Illmatic over video games to walking through the house singing “Smile” by Scarface and Tupac to lessons about life and being a man, Jun10r has many fond memories of the relationship between him and his father. He stands as a disruptor to the negative stereotype held by Hip Hop culture, citing his father as his first best friend. Just as the success of a man is often measured by the success of his seed, the depth of an artist is measured by the expanse of his creation. By those measures, both Jun10r and his namesake have hit the nail on the head. Although he was an original member of the local Hip Hop collective Y.R Generation, Jun10r’s journey as a musician started long before the group’s inception in 2013. Around the age of 14, he was drawn to writing. His literary skills evolved into poetry, then expanded even more into songwriting. His songs began as braggadocious tales aimed to impress by lyrical prowess, soon replaced by raw events from his life. Citing Scarface, Tech N9ne, Justin Timberlake, and Michael Jackson as major musical influences, the singer/ rapper now conveys tales true to his form for all to hear. This is a rare mission: being true to oneself in an industry that gives accolades to those with the most grandiose presentation. In full, this mission describes Jun10r. He is true. He seeks only to be that guy painting verbal pictures of real life experiences, in hopes that others will learn what he has learned. He’s a simple man, not afraid to be introspective. Set apart by this unashamed honesty, he moves forward with an overall goal of paying it forward. He sees himself providing for those he loves, just as his father before him. However, he won’t stop there. He seeks to influence mindsets and lives, helping those beyond his circle. As it stands, the prognosis is that one day Jun10r will be that ruler of rhymes some young person in the future grooves to while playing video games, seeing their way through hardships, or just generally making their way through life.

Ackurate:The Righteous Soul

At the age of 27 Ackurate has accomplished what most Hip Hop Artist have not and that is including Mainstream and Independent Artists. When you think about Hip Hop you think about a story. You think about the Artist bringing you into their world and expressing their vision with you. But, Artists in today’s music scene don’t have that gift and this is what makes Ackurate stand out among the rest.

The Righteous Soul, prod by Crisis is the latest release by Ackurate is a single from his upcoming project entitled “Audio Archer.” This Hip Hop ballad is a representation of what today’s music is whole heartedly missing. Ackurate brings to life the story of people facing hardships in their life and how they choose to cope with the what comes there way. He holds a liquor bottle in the video as the characters he is playing way to cope with life.

I feel this is a common occurrence in life. Everyone using something or someone to get through tough times in life. Ackurate has displayed this very well with his words and we appreciate you sharing your art with us.

Bio – Determined to create music that resonates deep within us all, solo Hip-Hop/Spoken Word artist Ackurate found the courage, strength and sheer-will to overcome depression. Born in the middle of ’91, growing up he found inspiration through the words of his influences like Mos Def, Elzhi, Pharoahe Monch & many others; Ackurate realized the best way for him to function was to find a way to inspire the people and help them through his words in the same honest, meaningful and memorable ways that he had once needed.

Our latest review is on his latest project title Walk the Line 3. This album was released in Nov of 2017 and is definitely worth the listen. I did not skip a track listening to this project. Daskreet starts off smooth with sounds routing from soul and original hip hop. His influences shine in this project. This album is great for every occasion and mood. We even tested this theory out by playing the album at a family gathering. There were no complaints that Walk the Line was playing and the vibe stayed right.

FoePound McGinnis- A Cool ass P

27787482_2016739041676061_1178422741_o (1).jpg

His laid back and poetic style is what gives him the edge he has. Even his performances scream Hip Hop. If you’ve never heard the man you definitely need to give a listen to FoePound. His music speaks wonders and his story is amazing.

About FoePound McGinnis: FoePound started rapping at age 13 inspired by his friend Worko. Music was just a hobby before and his name was “4pound”. 4pound rapped about money, drugs, women and material things. Being in a different stage of his life at this time the artist decided to change his image because he felt the message he was portraying was not him. “That is not me, that is not what is in my heart”.  Slowly the artist began to write more  meaningful songs, and along the way he decided to change the “4” to “Foe”. the “foe” means enemy but in this case it means enemy of negativity. The “pound” remained because he felt he was the same person but a little more mature. “McGinnis” comes from the cartoon batman beyond. FoePound really liked batman the most as a kid. And FoePound Calls himself “A Cool Ass P” because most people who know him personally call him “P”.

Past Releases. “Late Night Outtie”  was released in august. The project was inspired by the perspective of an everyday person working a job and how you can go through a lot in a day. Late nights are often when we reflect on events that have recently happened. Two music videos came from this project “Late night Outtie” and “RUn dAT”. Late night outtie expresses how even during the struggle we can still find reasons to smile. RUn dAT expresses how supervisors treat employees bad and that a job title can’t save you from being touched. A thought is just an action trapped behind a wall until we decide to make it real.

“The Arrival of A Cool Ass P” is his next ep scheduled to release March 11, 2018 on spotify, itunes, and other digital outlets.  The Arrival of a Cool Ass P concentrates on love. Throughout the years P has felt challenged by life and has felt unwanted and not loved; left standing confused at times but finally coming to understand what is truly important. Love! Physical love, love for another person and most importantly love for yourself. In the end it’s best to remember that you are someone important and you deserve to be loved even if it’s only from yourself.

What Inspires You: Making music comes from feeling like I can’t fully express myself. Throughout  life I’ve opened up to many people only to be shut down. I feel I’m hardly ever understood. Music is a way for me to talk and share my thoughts and feelings

Musical Influences: Ludacris, Young Jeezy and Many Hip Hop and RNB Artists.

Ian Taylor-A Man with a Dream

IMG_2011.jpg

He’s a stoner with a purpose and his dreams are bigger than Pikes Peak. Ian Taylor is a humble soul that loves his fans. His story is full of passion, sacrifice, sorrow and hope. Using his music to express his past, present and future, Ian is a breath of fresh air to the music world.

Latest Video

 

About Ian Taylor: Ian Taylor Hoag was born in Blue Springs, MO on May 8th, 1997. From an early age, Ian showed a passion for music and writing. His mother, Kim, moved Ian and his two brothers, Alex and Cooper, to Colorado in 1999 to escape an abusive husband and father to her children. Ian’s dad was in and out of his life for much of his early childhood, and became an almost non-existent figure during Ian’s teenage years. Alex, Ian’s eldest brother, passed away at the age of nine from Proteus Syndrome.

Ian has lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado from the time he was 18 months old until present day. He began battling depression and anxiety at an early age. He gave into self harm and drug usage during his middle school years. During his 8th grade year, after the suicide of a friend from another school, Ian attempted to hang himself. Fortunately, he was unsuccessful. He kept his attempted suicide from all friends and family for years to come.

All wasn’t dark and stormy for a young Ian Taylor. His mom was an outstanding role model. From the very beginning, she gave Ian the freedom to pursue whatever passions he wanted. Whether it be Baseball, Marine Biology, Law, Wrestling, BasketBall, or Poetry, Ian had his mother’s full support. He dabbled in all of the listed subjects and many others growing up.

The only passion that stuck with him through all of his other fancies was music. He grew up listening to mom’s selection of Johnny Cash, Disturbed, Bob Marley, and Cher, as well as his brothers catalogue full of Eminem, 50 Cent, T.I., Linkin Park, and more. His first musical instrument was the recorder. His entire school was made to learn it in 3rd grade. In fourth grade, he learned the Cello. 5th, the Baritone and Trombone. 6th, Piano and Percussion. The pattern continued until Ian could fluently play 11 instruments. His favorite became the piano.

Ian entered High School as the new kid in class. He didn’t really have any friends, so he fell in with the stoners. Ian had avidly smoked cannabis since he was in 7th grade, so they were easy to befriend for him. He began listening to a lot of Punk Rock during this time. Blink 182, The Germs, Sum 41, and The Dead Kennedys were among his favorites.

Ian began writing his own vocals for music during his Sophomore Year of High School. It wasn’t until his Junior year that he found Hip Hop. He fell in love immediately. His group of friends at the time weren’t very supportive of his newfound passion, minus a select few, so Ian was hesitant to pursue it as a career. Then something both terrible and wonderful happened.

One of Ian’s best friend started dating a girl that Ian had felt something for since he met her. One night, the girl cheated on her boyfriend with Ian. After being confronted by his friend about it, Ian confessed. It was at this point that young Taylor’s life seemed shattered. He had lost all of his friends, and he had lost the girl that he had fallen in love with. He felt extreme guilt and sadness that he had hurt the ones he cared about so badly. At school, he had no one.However, if he could go back in time and change it, he has said he wouldn’t.

In the wake of all the drama and heartbreak, Ian put his all into writing and creating rap music. It was all he had. At school, he stopped paying attention to the teachers and started writing tracks. There was hardly a day that Ian didn’t have his headphones in. Thus, an artist was born.

Ian put out his first mixtape in 2014, titled The Rising. Since then, he has released four mixtapes on SoundCloud and Facebook. Recently, he began making the jump to iTunes, Spotify, and other well known streaming platforms. With over 80 songs in his other catalogue, Ian only has 2 singles on iTunes and Spotify currently, as well as several features and cyphers he took part in. He is in the works of recording his first official Studio album, Dusk to Dawn, which is set to drop sometime in May of 2018.

What Inspires You: My mom, my brother, my best friends, and myself. My mom built the Proteus syndrome foundation that found the cause and cure of my brothers illness that he passed away from. My brother constantly pushes me to do better, and is currently pursuing his dream of acting in Atlanta. My best friends, Brandon and Lucas, are the backbone of Ian Taylor Music. Without their constant support I’d have quit a long time ago.
What’s next: I plan on releasing my album in May. I’ve planted seeds for a small tour in the beginning of 2019. Several label requests have been sent to my inbox, but nothing that I’d consider since they all asked me to “Dumb it down”. I also have a show on March 3rd co headlining with Black Pegasus.
