The beatbox needs a little work but Tiara Thomas rips this freestyle!
Singer, songwriter, and lyricist Tiara Thomas is making her return to music on a higher level, all puns intended. Her official break in the industry started when MMG artist Wale teamed up with the college graduate for the platinum selling record “Bad”. It came to no surprise when Tiara’s career skyrocketed after the release of the hit single, and soon after signed to industry power house Rico Love. Currently Thomas has separated from her contract with Rico’s Division One label and is releasing her a project next month solo. Tiara tells us about the progression of her music career, the EP Up In Smoke that is set to be released August 12th, and spills who she would F, Marry, or Kill out of Mack Wilds, Fetty Wap, and Kendrick Lamar.
Watch the full exclusive interview above and her new video to single “On Me” below!

Trina enlists the talents of multi-talented artist Rico Love who provides the smooth hook and lays down a hot verse in the blinged-out visuals for new single, “Real One”. On the track, Trina spits about falling for guys who always fall short of the mark. Trina keeps it very grown, very sexy and very real, as she doesn’t just point fingers…she also shares the blame, owning up to repeatedly making bad decisions. Judging from this track, Trina won’t be continuing the cycle!

Rico Love and Future team up for “He Got Money”
In case you missed it, this week R&B singer/songwriter Rico Love released his I Sin mixtape. The project features some really hot artists including; Big K.R.I.T., Troy Ave, Monnie da Hustler, Bobby Shmurda, Kevin Gates and of course Future. Rico released “He Got Money” last month and today he’s back with the visual to match. The video features plenty of beautiful women and Future does make an appearance. Although Future only contributes ab-libs on the track, the song and video speak volumes on their own. Check out the video here and let us know your thoughts.
Ode to the strip club…its the weekend right?
Big K.R.I.T. slows it down and “Pay’s Attention” with the smooth sounds of Rico Love on the seductive chorus of his first song off his sophomore album, Cadillactica. Now we know exactly what to expect from the Mississippi native when he’s on the mic but this is definitely a different sound than his viscous “Mt. Olympus” track he previewed back in April. K.R.I.T. is preparing for the fall release of Cadillactica and just recently announced a limited edition compilation, The Underground Edition. The compilation will be of his four mixtapes: K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, Return of 4eva, 4eva N A Day, and King Remembered in Time. Here’s the catch, there are only 500 CD and vinyl editions and only 250 cassette editions available to purchase with delivery in September, vinyl editions in October. Check out the track and let us know your thoughts.

You can find Deniqua talking about how Rico Love made her feel some type of way on this chorus @__hennystraight.
Consider this single “Pay Attention” a preview of what to expect on Big K.R.I.T’s upcoming sophomore studio album Cadillactica
Produced by Jim Jonsin, though that’s not the only person he teamed up with for the track, as it features Rico Love’s vocals. It consist of K.R.I.T being stuck on a particular lady hence the hook “I should be paying more attention to you.”
Its definitely a change of pace for the artist and its not what we are used to hearing from him looking back at Mt.Olympus. However, Cadillactica is due to release sometime this year.

“Never ran, never will”
Brownsville, Brooklyn’s Big B’z made his musical debut in December 2012 with the release of his mixtape “DecemberRed.” The hot street single “Red Sox” featuring Lil Wayne placed him onto the musical map. Now Big B’z teams up with Rico Love & Jim Jones for the latest street anthem titled, “Another Zoe.”
For those unfamiliar, as stated in the video, to “Zoe” is to take and not give back; verb. To finesse or persuade someone into giving you something that they thought would help financially, but really only helps you.
