Oceanside, CA's Dezzy Hollow just released his latest video, "In Vein," from his 2019-released project, FIRESIDE, via EMPIRE/MadStrange. The vibrant and upbeat visual matches its bouncy and head-banging beat; and it prominently features popular dance group "The Happy Kids" of the Dream Catchers Dance Academy, a Nigerian dance team comprised of underprivileged children, who've chosen dance and the arts as a means to survive and change their lives.
The dance-heavy video follows Dezzy's "Convinced" visual, which garnered over 200K views within its first month, and "EBT Boi II," which reaches for the same success. The Mexican and Pacific Islander rapper, who's accumulated over 82K subscribers on YouTube, 44K on Spotify and over 51K across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, has performed in multiple sold-out venues, with upwards of 7,000+ fans across Southern California and Mexico; and has collaborated with fellow Mexican rappers Kap G, Akapellah and Aleman, San Diego's Mitchy Slick, plus more.
Born and raised in Oceanside, California, as a Mexican and Pacific Islander, Dezzy Hollow has always been influenced by his environment and music. From a young age, he was inspired by the transformative sounds of G-Funk, hip-hop and West Coast rap. This inspiration would later build his style and the sincerity in his own artistry.
Starting to create music in high school, he quickly generated local buzz with his mixtapes. In 2015, he released the Soul Food Project and followed 2016 with the release of the Beyond Reach LP. In January 2017 he released his most recent project, Stay Current which debuted at No. 4 on the Hot Indie Hip Hop chart on iTunes.

Never one to shy away from vulnerability with honesty, he consistently builds up his word play around the sounds that initially influenced his musical career while creating his own authentic sound. His authenticity and ability to draw on the original vibrations of G-Funk and West Coast Rap is responsible for his growing fan base.

When N3 first started making beats he was 12 years old. He loved music and he found a way to make his own, and that was the virtual studio program "Fl Studio". He loved how the program worked and with it he made beats and would let his parents hear all the time.
After discovering a way to make his beats, he wanted to start rapping. At first he just made simple freestyles over other artists beats and then he started getting serious and making his own beats and rapping on them. After finding himself, he decided to put more time into producing & engineering music. In his early producing days he started off working with artists from his hometown Lynwood, California, which earned him his first major placement on a song he produced featuring RBX .
In 2012 N3 started to work heavily with Spiffie Luciano, which led to producing & mixing for AD, Quincey White, Pacman da Gunman, Tiu Muzic, Kokane, & LilCadiPGE. After expanding his clientele & coming across so many talented artists throughout Los Angeles, N3 came up with an idea to start his own media platform that kept independent artists in mind first. This is when 'LA On Lock' was born. After securing the LAOnLock.com domain, he wasted no time & began to type up blogs in support of any good music that was submitted. Over the years the brand has grown to curating events, exclusive premieres, a podcast show & more.
N3 released his first compilation album "New Classics" in 2015. Fast forward to 2019 he's just released his second compilation album entitled “N3 On The Track, Vol. 1” along with features from Marty Blaze, D.R.E, Slum Baby, Garrett Douglas, Elijah Banx, Deuce Biggs, Rozo Regal, Karma Laws, Stophe Malone, Macharo, Steve DaMar, Howie Khepri, Rimpau, AD, Radio Base, AhmniMay & more; + collaboration on production from FameBeats, FynessOnDaTrack, Austin James & Deuce Biggs.
"I feel like this is my redemption album. I know people doubt me, & I feel like my choice of production has a lot to do with it. We're breaking down those barriers this year."
Trap Soul, Chill & Mellow vibes produced by BabyGotBeatz (rising Canadian production team). This song is about getting away from everyday reality and living young forever. Collaboration with FANFAN adds a special touch to the song.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, and separated from his father, Josh grew up in 2 bedroom house with 5 relatives with a mother struggling from drug addiction. When his mother was approved for section 8 housing, they moved to the suburbs but the problems followed and he was never able to fit in, eventually being expelled from his Highschool. Throughout this time he was coming up on the underground scene in Cleveland as BANKIE TRAVOLTA when his Mother relapsed and had to move away leaving Josh homeless in-between Cleveland and Atlanta. Recently his grandmother and grandfather were shot in a home invasion so he had to take a a quick break from releasing music but Josh is back and better than ever. He is sitting on over 300 songs and is currently working with some power players in the industry to make sure the world hears.
Producer EyeonEyez connects with The Trapgod himself Gucci Mane for the new single "Polar Bear".
One thing is for sure is that winter is coming and it's going to be a cold one. And as Mysterious Producer EyeOnEyez teases on his instagram, "Keep Calm, Stay Warm EyeOnEyez Heat is Coming!"
He wasn't joking.
Today, EyeOnEyez teams up with the Trap God himself, Gucci Mane, to drop "Polar Bear" a slamming trap beat that guarantees sure to keep your ears cozy and warm better than any pair of ear muffs.
Gucci Mane talks some realness about his humble beginnings and rise to fame and fortune. From "I'm a murderer but I'm not going to hell" and "I was a young fella picking up game from the old players. Fronted me ten square, now I'm a millionaire"...
EyeOnEyez speaks briefly on how the collaboration happened:
"Yea we actually made this like last minute. We had worked a few months before on a major Rick Ross / Gucci Mane Collab called Overdose and it came out really good. And I just so happened to be in Miami and Gucci had just moved there and we met up at DJ Khaled's studio and the song was written in like 20 minutes. Next thing I know, and without warning -- I turn around and Gucci Mane is getting his haircut right there in the studio."
Gucci Mane takes his haircuts SERIOUS.
Mysterious and original, masked musician EyeOnEyez burst onto the scene with a fresh new sound that's aggressive yet cerebral and haunting at the same time. A lot is yet to be learned about this figure EyeOnEyez, but his artistry and ability to bring hot new artists together with rap legends is something the industry has been craving for a while.
One can only assume he has spent years underground crafting his unique style of sound, informed by an eclectic taste in jazz, electronica, trap and hardcore hip hop. His aggressive production and infectious rhythmic style deliver a visceral listening experience with every track.
In 2017, Eyez and his team connected with Hip Hop Legend Prodigy to record “Out Queens.” Sadly, Prodigy passed prematurely soon after. Just like his other work, this final track “Out Queens” utilizes EyeOnEyez signature sound: lush synths, haunting melodies, kamikaze trap drums and melt-your-face-off 808’s.
EyeOnEyez teases a full length album featuring Wu Tang Clan, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, as well as a few up and coming artists from his own label.
EyeOnEyez draws on his vast and deep musical influences and voracious trap-inspired drum sound to deliver an aural landscape that transports you to another world. Power producer and label boss, EyeOnEyez cuts through the noise like a laser beam, combining his unstoppable instinct for innovation with one-of-a-kind sound design and otherworldly visual imagery.
Midwest R&B vocalist TJ links up with Midwest Producer DJ Paimon to make an EP of R&B infused hip hop club bangers over hard hitting trap beats. This song transitions from a Trap Club anthem into a darker slow R&B track midway through the song to provide different layers of the same theme.

Recorded in one hour, Numb was recorded at home and uploaded immediately to Soundcloud. Yesterday it was picked up by Elevator and is already garnering 10k views.

Alley Boy is a known name in the rap business. Whether you recognize him from his time with Atlantic Records, his partnership with Master P, or have been around from the days that Duct Tape Entertainment planted their flag in the fertile soil of Atlanta’s hip hop scene. Alley Boy continues to be a presence with both legacy acts and new stars alike.
Sprouting from the concrete of Zone 6, Alley Boy grew to be a voice of the streets - both chronicling the principles of life, and the lack thereof. Always seeing music as secondary, Alley Boy’s releases have been sporadic. Which leads to this last minute enterprise….
The process to releasing Alley God was madness to say the least. Recording over 100 songs during 2018 yet only releasing 3 (Interview, 6 Figures and No Vouchin); Alley felt a New Year’s spurt of energy and jumped back in the studio. This time, everything came together smoothly and in 2 days the tracklist was finalized and Alley boldly set a January 10 drop date.
No pre-promotional planning. Super aggressive release timing. Why the sense of urgency? This is all done in the name of artistry.
Behind the scenes, once the date for “AlleyGod” was announced, Alley Boy was flooded with feature requests. Sticking to his belief in making music with ppl he vibes with, AlleyGod accepted last minute contributions from 21 Savage "Fish Fry", Derez Deshon & Marlo "Grewed Up".
21 Savage goes nuts on Fish Fry while Derez Deshon and Marlo kill the City Girls themed Grewed Up. Alley Boy shines brightest on the solo cuts. While his Duct Tape family make a strong showing with newcomer Ola Runt gettin the Big Bank Black co-sign before the 800BBS crew take full advantage of the posse cut Loaded. B Green, Champ1k, & The Godfather Big Bank Black join Alley Boy in a strong finale to a sure candidate for classic status. Stream AlleyGod wherever you listen to music!
Constantly living up to her alias, Lady Tee The Difference proves to us again, why she's just that.
With the help of producer Ayiro, Lady Tee teams up her homegirl- Miss Bliss, bringing us a club banger anthem, quite far from the norm.
Soon as it comes on, the heavy bass and hi hats definitely has you expecting her to rap about "popping that p_$$y". Welp, in Lady Tee's voice, let's just say - NOT THAT FAST.
To hear more from Lady Tee, be sure to cop her new album - STRICTLY FOR MY WOMEN!!!
