Atlanta, GA; If you are anything like me than you most definitely may be shocked with 2 Chainz latest album, yet not at all surprised. 2 Chainz, originally was known as Tity Boi and for those that still do not know why, here is a little fun fact, he was a mama’s boy. What a lot of people also do not realize is that 2 Chainz is a college graduate and so it always amuses me when people underestimate or try to box in his abilities and talent. For those of us that have followed his career, it is known that he started off as part of the duo “Playaz Circle” before venturing off on his own. Granted he gained notoriety through his various “TRU” mixtape releases, he catapulted into superstardom thanks to the T.I. accredited “TRAP RAP”. Well, I said all this to say….it was about time he let his love and respect for women mix with his intelligence for the release of new album “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music”, critics and yes, I am included are singing his praises.
He made an album that is not only something that the fellas can jam to, yet women can press play without feeling downgraded and left out. This latest album is most certainly A-Town approved!! Support the album and checkout the video to lead single “It’s A Vibe”, which features Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz, & Jhené Aiko below. If this is an indication of where he is directed, sign us up for the ride.

SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA—When you listen to Brandon Seamster talk, you quickly forget he’s just a teen who recently graduated from high school. He’s wise beyond his years.
“I grew up in an area where alcohol and drugs were around me, and I tried to stay away from that. I was the type of person that kind of saw it all for what it was worth,” stated Seamster. “I tried to go in the opposite direction. Before you can change anybody’s life you must change yourself.”
And changing people’s lives is exactly what he is doing. He recently debuted his first major EP titled “HUMANZ” which has already received a lot of positive buzz from fans all over the country.
“The response has been crazy. There is a song on their called “Gang Prophecy Part.1” and this 14-year-old kid from Massachusetts called me and told me that my music was actually helping him get through a hard time in his life,” stated Seamster. “That made me feel good to know that somebody is actually getting something from this. It makes me feel like I’m doing my job and I need to continue to do that.”
Influenced by hip hop icons like Eminem, Nas, and Biggy Smalls, their style is sampled in Seamster’s latest EP which focuses on a lot of the big news stories making headlines today.
“Some of the topics I touch on include the Trayvon Martin incident. I touched on Ferguson,” stated Seamster. “As for the name of the EP, it comes from the fact that we’re all human. We all make mistakes. But now in this time, things are starting to happen where people almost follow into the footsteps of what other people do. The ‘z’ at the end is stands for ‘zombie.’ We are starting to become programmed to do what people are telling us to do.”
The dynamic alternative hip-hop duo The KnuX (www.theknux.com) have released their third feature album, “ELEVEN”, through Rebel House Collective in partnership with INgrooves Music Group.
Recorded over eleven days at their Los Angeles studio, the new album is a ten track display of their signature sound. “We decided to return to the raw unpolished sound that we displayed on our early recordings. Basically the sound that made The KnuX,” explains Krispy of the group’s return. “With 11 we’re trying to give u that feeling we promised the fans we would restore in hip-hop.”
