Sonny Bo - "We Ballin"

While some people think that San Diego is all palm trees and sunny skies, the background ofSonny Bo is quite different. Despite his cool nature and positive vibes Sonny Bo grew up in a rough area of San Diego where he had no choice but to find a way out. Relying on a background in music after his older brother was in a relatively popular group out in SD, Sonny Bo knew that music was his ticket out of his area.

But Sonny Bo always had his own name and that started when he was getting teased on in the streets as a young kid.  

"In the hood a lot of names start off as as a diss, my Aunties would call me Sonny, so then they would tease me and call me Sonny, then it was Sonny Bono.  I'm from an area called the bottom, so they started calling me Sonny Bo short for Sonny Bottom.  There's a lot of people from my hood with the Bo on their name so I had to embrace the negative and turn it into positive."

The name Sonny Bo stuck and since then he's sound his way gaining some notoriety after a few street friendly mixtape tapes got going in his hometown. Most recently Sonny Bo switched up his style on mixtapes to be more inclusive of females and people outside his hood, incorporating more pop sensibilities in his music. 

"I describe my music as an evolution, because I went from making real street music to making music from the ladies and stuff that is more in touch with the feelings," Sonny Bo explained.  "I sampled a lot of pop artists before they were big and added some street stuff to it for a tape. We don't do anything cheesy, but we add a street edge to the pop side and that party stuff that people can enjoy and vibe to."

Showing his versatility Sonny Bo is back on his street music and he's dropping a visual for "We Ballin"  which was filmed in his hood at the cross streets of Los Soneto and Springford. 

"I had to get the street stuff out the way with the new visual, the previous five videos have been melodic and the visuals feature me with women in hotel rooms, but as far as a West Coast artist, people can't take you serious if you aren't good in the hood. My turf still love me even though I don't just make music for them. I'm really trill like the video shows, but I'm still a cool dude," Sonny Bo explained. 

"If you have a choice you shouldn't be doing this at all.  I don't promote gang banging, but for a lot of people there is no choice. Things are a lot different than the 80's, there's a lot of artists that are from different neighborhoods even thought they didn't grow up there.  But now even though people are dying and they are still shooting, the beef is different. I do music with the crip dudes and they are like my family, so the beef people have is more personal as opposed to over colors. I was born into this so I can't put it away."

L Streetz - "I Un Fallin Love"

Spending time back and forth between ATL and LA, it's clear Chicago bred femcee L Streetz moves around and gets it in at all costs. L Streetz is determined to catch her break and she's hitting the road to make sure her sound is heard. "Everything is independent going forward, I took some time off and it really just put a fire under me to really just get things in order. That's why I'm just releasing music and hitting the road at small venues" L Streetz said. With shows at A3C confirmed and with connections to promoters in the Midwest, L Streetz has plans to get on the road going state to state at intimate venues to perform songs from her critically acclaimed Greatness project available via DatPiff . "'Mutual' was sent through Digiwaxx and because of that a lot of DJ's picked up on it, and its better just to have the visual when you drop stuff, so I think this will put a name to the face on my new project," L Streetz added. Along with a clean visual with movie-like production, L Streetz is building off previous successes and posts on HNHH, The Source, AllHipHop and many other popular blog sites. While in the midst of dropping a dope video her album “The Recovery” will be available September 30th, and can be currently preordered on iTunes August 19th via ITunes. "Its cinematic, I'm telling a story and with a lot of my new visuals I wanted to do something that as more movie related. With this song I wanted to bring my lyrics to life rather than just shooting a regular video.

Mickey Taelor - "Work It Out"

Bred from a sound that evolved as a youngster listening to his parent's music, to producing for the likes of Kendrick Lamar, J Cole and ScHoolboy Q, certified RIAA Platinum producer Willie B. embodies all that is music in this modern era of Hip-Hop and Pop music. Los Angeles based producer Willie B. knows no bounds when trying to create the best music possible and because of that he's succeeded. But while he's produced for some of the greatest rappers of our era and helped form his artist Mickey Taelor's new project, Willie B. has been bumping elbows with the who's who of Hollywood for nearly a decade. Since then, Willie B has still been producing raw East Coast sounding beats while at the same time cranking out more pop friendly songs like Mickey Taelor's "Work It Out," With the introduction of one of his favorite artists, Mickey Taelor, Willie B. has stepped into new territory as an executive producer overseeing Mickey Taelor's debut effort, Essentials. "Mickey was always my favorite artist since I heard her music. The songs that we make are like my kids, and we just trying to put these kids out right," Willie B explained. "Now its just about getting the music out there and making sure people understand what we were trying to do."

CA$HPASSION - "Gucci Pizza"

There's no denying that CA$HPASSION has a sick buzz going on on right now as the who's who of blogs and music websites are posting his music. The video for "Unlimited" ft PNB Rock spread like wildfire earlier this month catching the attention of the industry. Then last week the track "Hard Earned" ft Tre Capital with production from WondaGurl and 95Grvmz somehow leaked to a host of sites online. Nevertheless, he's continuing the push for his self-titled album release later this month on August 19th. For this release CA$HPASSION gives the fans his much anticipated "Gucci Pizza" song that dawns a title he envisioned while eating pizza at the Gucci store in Italy. Creatively featuring the Gucci logo emblazoned on pepperonis for the artwork and a hook that's as catchy as we've come to expect from CA$HPASSION, this song is the full package. "We are gearing up for my self-titled EP which includes production from TM-88, J Gramm and more. We also have special appearances from Sonny Digital, HBK P-Lo, Dumbfounded, KOHH and others. I'm really excited for the world to hear what I've been cooking up," CA$HPASSION explained.
