Still Hustie & WILDZ XL – “Vicious Circle of the Wildz” – another important message that the world needs to hear

Hip Hop is incredibly accessible.  If you have any performing, rhyming or poetic talent – you can tell your life story, through rapping, a beat and accessible means. This makes it globally significant – people can put their own spin on it, and express their individuality, or a collective message. Rappers, as poets, have always been a good reflection of the heart of a community. They take ideas out of the community and spread them to the rest of the world. Sometimes its stuff that’s positive, often times its stuff that’s negative. At best, it’s engaged in social, political and

Gual – “Get Down” – a retro-wave 80’s groove that is total wonderfulness! 

By the age of 10, artist and producer Gual had picked up his first guitar. Two years later he was experimenting with music production, using a Korg Poly-800 synth, his guitar, and an old Panasonic dual cassette recorder. These days Gual is still channeling all of his energy and passion into his music with a nu-disco single entitled “Get Down”. This is an excellent electronic dance track album from Gual. Fat synths, smooth syrupy and soulful vocals, and thick funky basslines make this track a must have for anyone who appreciates any disco or dance music. The whole track has

Love Ghost Premieres their brand new video “Let It All Burn”

Message from lead singer/songwriter Finnegan Bell: “Let It All Burn” is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My Dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined- “fuck what they say, I make my own way”. The song was produced by Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, U2, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie). The music video was directed by Dean Karr. The promise of his early work led to Karr being asked to direct Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams.” The resulting piece drew

Denny Strickland sees Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn character as inspiration for new song

Denny Strickland’s new track, Harley Quinn, dropped on Friday 25th October: His inspiration for the song comes from the character Harley Quinn in DC comic-book movie Suicide Squad, which was released in 2016. Denny explains, “At the time I wrote this song, I was watching Suicide Squad and I really liked Margot Robbie’s performance. I imagined her drinking gin and smoking in the club like the bad bitch she is and the lyrics just came to mind. The rest of the song just flowed out from there referencing Louis Vuitton, Lamborghini, Johnny Cage (Mortal Kombat) and my favorite mustang Fox

Q: How are you Talent?

TalentDisplay: Man doing great, doing great. Shoutout to my DiSPLAYERS and Jamsphere for having me today.

Q: Let’s get to it. So, you’ve recently done something unusual for yourself and joined an online rap contest called “One Take Rap Contest” right?

TalentDisplay: I did, I did. I jumped in on it for fun and also for some promo for my upcoming street album which should be coming up next month. Me and my homie Menace who handled the visuals for it decided to have fun and join the competition. They haven’t decided who won yet and regardless, I appreciate the exposure. Shoutout to Futuristic & AKT Aktion for doing that. That’s a good look.

Q: You mentioned an upcoming album, what’s in store on there?

TalentDisplay: Well, I have a friends of mine as guest features on there which is exciting for me because of what it added to building this fun project. I’ll release the title and title track soon along with the whole thing probably, I just want to get some visuals done prior. Features on there include my dear Heath Ripplinger who also records me for the most part, also my peoples 2K West Ingrid Rayne, Ken Live, Kontious & Filthy One who provided a different flavor and provided a Spanish verse. Going to be fun playing with fire (laughs).

Q: How is the production looking like on there?

TalentDisplay: The production is bananas too! Very diverse, only one producer produced more than one track. The sound goes from Pop to Old School, all over the place on purpose.

Q: Speaking of ‘place’ Talent, how has your previous project “Different Place” been received?

TalentDisplay: Aw man, exceptional. In fact, I plan on shooting a vid for one of the tracks from that EP soon! Hope y’all DiSPLAYERS still bumping that one, it’s available on TalentDisplay.net while my official site TalentDisplay.com is being constructed.

Q: Let’s veer away from your own music and talk about some artists in the game. What do you think of, let’s say, 2Chainz as a rapper? What do you think about Nicki and Remy beefing?

TalentDisplay: I think he’s a fun mainstream rapper who is an absolute genius when it comes to marketing. It’s an element that must be added to the equation of a successful artist, especially given the game’s current state in this tech era. As far as Remy & Nicki beefing… man, it’s interesting… in a way, the online community seems to treat Remy as a Spartan… well… at the end of the Day, they lost, fight and all. Nicki responded lightly and it worked, easily. Would rather see them collab than beef, oh well. Shoutout to them girl though, they eating.

Q: A lot of rappers are entrepreneurial with their hustle. Any one you’d like to be signed to? Diddy or anything like that?

TalentDisplay: Developing myself as an artist, I’ve always wanted to be signed to Fif man (laughs) probably still. I love being independent and hustling for myself but there’s something about 50 Cent’s mind, hustle and perception that I absolutely feel places him in another realm compare to these other dudes. Him, and Jay of course, I’ve seen the J. Cole pattern of success as an artist, and yea… it’s all about those two as far as hip-hop bosses to me.

Q: What if another artist wants to have you featured on their song and such? What would be the best way to reach out to you for a hook or a 16 and stuff?

TalentDisplay: I’m constantly on all my social media sites, especially Twitter. If they got a dope cut, hit me up! I’m always down.

Q: How do you describe your sound as an artist?

TalentDisplay: I’d say more than anything my sound is diverse. I can take it and can truly do a lot with it. I take a lot of pride in my range because it took a lot of hard work, a lot of time and all that. Gotta be proud of what I make when I make it, means a lot.

Q: Before I let you go TalentDisplay, are there any mottos you live by? Any advice for your fans whom you call ‘DiSPLAYERS’ out there?

TalentDisplay: Oh yeah… (pause) one would be “Keep Pushing No Matter What” while reminding the people that “Loyalty Is Everything” definitely.

Q: TalentDisplay, thank you for your time.

TalentDisplay: Thank you, it’s always a pleasure.
