What a major move for Houston’s Legend Rap Artist Brad “Scarface” Jordan to run as Member of Councilman for District D. As former member of “The Geto Boys” and Facemob, the Artist is taking on a new journey in his life.
Three days ago, he posted on instagram “Should I Run For Houston City Council?” He announced via social media (Saturday June 8th) that he will be running.
As he considers his career change, his fans and supporters insists this will be one of the best moves for the city. As he is currently taking donations on behalf of his run, he seems to be building up the momentum to serve his community.
He has spent up to 30 years serving his fans with platinum selling records. June 26th is also Brad “Scarface” Jordan Day in Houston. We look forward to what will come up within the next few weeks.
Not only does he give fans the music but good deeds within the community. Mr. Brad has also taught High School students about the Music Business at Jake Yates High School in Houston.
Many are excited of the good news that the legend has bought up front.
If you are in Houston as an upcoming artist within hip-hop, well you should have heard about ARedd’s Showcase he’s been having lately. We were invited to The “We Workin” Showcase, Sunday May 26th. It was held at The Engine Room for Memorial Weekend. This becomes his second show which grew substantially. With DJ Calo on the 1s and 2s, he joined forces with DJ Nick The Quick on stage.
We caught up with one of Houston’s best Music Engineers at his show where he displays a great deal of artists. He allowed them to have the chance to perform with fans and others to connect. They were also able to network with each other and vibe off all the dope music played.
What is cool is that Aredd has a recording studio on the southwest side of Houston, TX. We are sure he had thoughts on how can he implement all of the talents he work with, giving them a chance on a stage. With his “We Working” Showcase, it gives you a moment to see who’s really putting in work with their music!
Artists had the chance to open up for Lil Splurge (@ssglilsplurge). Even though his set was shortened, the audience was stoked to have him hype them up. There were special guests artists such as EnzoMcFly, $tiffbarbie, Suave Louis, and Lil Brent. All artists came with their own vibes. Dedoe also came and invited the crowd on stage featuring Lil Jairmy. This became one of the highlights of the show as well. What a way to get crowd anticipation!

After watching each set, there were a good amount of artists who took over the stage. Then, there were a few artists that need more practice on taking over the stage. Overall, the experience was what mattered the most. That’s why we were eager to assist with allowing artists to know what’s real the deal.
Here is a few artists that we checked out as they performed and rocked out:
- Miko Racks
- Vibe Gang
- KID Camo
- Lucky Garcia
- Gwalla Twinz
- Isaiah Deleon
- Young Zone
After attending many showcases in Houston in particular, you always get artists perform, with no feedback or ways to enhance their craft. No follow ups, no announcement of who’s in the venue, media, press, videographers, photographers, etc. No actual networking field artists can grow accustomed to. So, some artists do not know how to approach others, especially if they really do not know. Just do your best and move around the room. Be sure to communicate with all around you. Keep positive energy and release it throughout the room by good feedback, a follow on social media, or ask questions! It’s that easy! Don’t leave a venue without connecting with at least five others. In due time it will help you.
We encourage aspiring artists to research and find ways to grasps your fans and audience. Put in more groundworks. Receive constructive criticism for its best. Be thankful and grateful during these memories and moments. Most important enjoy yourself! We hope to see Who’s Workin at the next show!
We were on the scene for the upcoming video of “Throw Fits” with Juvenile, Yung Miami, G-Eazy, and Super Producer London On Tha Track. The block party scene was located on Frenchmen Street, at the Blue Nile. Many people gathered together to be apart of a culture filled scene in the middle of the street.
We were invited by Freewater, who came together and gathered many people to come out and dance, party, and be apart of dope scene of the video shoot. They also gave a crawfish boil for the everyone came out. We caught London On Tha Track and Juvenile enjoying crawfish.
Everyone was enjoying themselves, especially G-Eazy, as he amps the crowd and embrace the fans and people gathering in their presence. London On Tha Track gathered the people and upcoming local artists from the city for shoots in the video and also embraced them with photos and gracing his presence as well.
The atmosphere was full of beautiful vibes as well as beautiful people coming together. Even though the sun was vibrant, nothing amounted to the huge smiles of the people enjoying themselves. One thing we noticed was the video had an abundant feel of the culture. There was a second line band, ladies twerking, vibrant colors in everyone’s attire, and much more.
We are confident that the video will capture the New Orleans culture. As natives, it was refreshing to be apart what should be a hit single! The video will add more insight of our culture. With the city always being an influence in the hip hop scene, “Throw Fits” will stamp where it all began! Our music, food, and amazing people has any tourist visiting leaving with high vibrations and happiness.
Be on the look out for the video! We will keep you In The Nyte Lyfe even in The Daytime!

Catch a vibe as you listen to Mastermind BL’s “Whole Time” Artists Ya Minko and Lysian drops their latest music video early this March. Both artists grew up in Gabon, Africa. With video production by OG Visions, you will catch the Houston vibes throughout the video. You will see the landscape in the Nyte Lyfe viewing the skylines of downtown Houston.
These guys captures an unique look of themselves, giving their fans more of their craft. Their lyrics were average, the production helped offset its performance. Th artists should focus on more clarity of their voice.
The video production was pretty cool. The video should have had more scenes or various visuals to attract the viewer’s eye. Maybe the scenes were limited.
Overall, the video is cool. The storyline of the actual song should be depicted more. We look forward to see what else these guys have in store.

We caught up with an aspiring rap artist from Houston named LaVander. After listening to his music, we anticipate hearing what he has coming up in the future. As an upcoming artist, things become challenging when you are channeling your craft. LaVander has a sense of flow within his music. His concept with his lyrics are heard, yet something is missing. LaVander is a hip hop artist that’s taking his music one step at a time.
Although the artist can bring the concept of his tracks to life, he needs to become more enthused in this music. Practicing your flow and how the fans will interpret your voice is very important! LaVander has this unique presence on the mic and we look forward to hearing more from him.

Social media has went into a frenzy about Gucci advertising their blackface sweater. The sweater becomes questionable and the black community becomes furious! Why would Gucci even put out such a design, even during black history month?
Many in the hip hop community blasts the high end fashion brand. Soulja Boy, T.I., Waka Flocka, and more goes in on Gucci and how they no longer will be supporting this brand. With most of blacks buying and flaunting the brand, this becomes a slap in the face to one of their biggest buyers.
Gucci sends out an apology:
As a whole, we should stop supporting these brands that still embrace to racist acts from the elite. We need to become more supportive of our black owned businesses that create clothing for our body design. These European brands don’t even fit us properly. Why do our black people complain but never make a call to action not to support these brands that care less? We are in high hopes that our people get the picture one day to end The ill mannered actions.
Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper.
We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make.
