Rising Brooklyn rapper, Mophead TBC, dropped another visual for his song “Geeky” produced by Nxrre, a producer who produced tracks for Bizzy Banks, Sha Gualla, Smoove L. and more. The song talks about celebrating your wins by having fun and getting turnt with your friends. If you don’t know what “Geeky is, it’s the type of euphoria that can be brought on by a lot of the things but mainly partying and getting lit with friends.

The video directed by Zah Lauren, will make you feel like you’re watching a VHS home movie of someone else’s rager from the night before. With tons of beautiful girls and Mophead TBC partying inside a beautifully lit corner store – for those who are a fan of trap music, Mophead TBC has the recipe to continue dropping better visuals and greater music in the months to come.

As for Mophead TBC’s story, It started in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn at a tiny dim lit bar. There was a janky stage that was definitely not up to code. Too young to be at the bar hustler, Mophead TBC took the stage. He delivered a performance that many will not forget, only fifteen at the time, and had stage presence like no other. Since then, Mophead dropped “No Felony” and plenty of others that secured his freshman spot in the Brooklyn Drill rap scene with predecessors like Sleepy Hollow, Fivio Foreign, and Pop Smoke.

While Mophead has sounds in drill music, he also has a variety of sonically pleasing sounds with melodic tracks like “Artist” and “On Me.” Now the seventeen-year-old Mophead TBC has developed into a goal-oriented, talentedly gifted, artist. He got his drive from being that young performer in that terribly lit bar, affirming his passion for music and putting in the time now for a greater stage later.

Every weekend, Mophead TBC grabs his friends and heads to their neighborhood studio in Cooper Park. He may not be the loudest in the room but his presence is always known, but one thing Mophead is big on is gratitude as is visible from the team built around him. As Mophead plugs away hours in the studio not leaving the booth for hours on end, but always willing to welcome feedback, ‘Geeky’ shows the very much deserved reward for hard work and consistency. It’s important to celebrate your wins so that you can maintain the energy to keep going. A party with friends is the perfect video frame to capture authentic fun and goal achievement.

Uprising New York recording artist Ladibree kicks off the summer with a potential song of the season with the release of her latest song, properly-titled, “Pop Shit.” For the song, Ladibree delivers a young, fly and flashy personality that electrifies fans and build intrigue for the heat she has on the way for a game-changing season. Stream it now via Ladibree/Saint Bernard.

For Ladibree, the new single is a homage to the true essence of a New Yorker. She explains: “When you’re from NYC you learn very quickly that you have to be confident, you have to at least somewhat know yourself, and you have to be willing to pop your shit or else you’re liable to get lost in the noise. I have no interest in getting lost in all of that, so if I have to introduce myself or remind others of who I am and what I’m capable of, I will most definitely talk my shit and do so.”

“Pop Shit” sets up Ladibree’s forthcoming album which follows her 2019 EP, Only Everything. In 2021, Ladibree released previous buzzworthy appetizers in “Born Winner” and “I Lied (Freestyle).” To stay up-to-date on everything on the way from Ladibree, follow her on social media.

Introducing Devon Jeweler (Blog)

Get to know Devon Jeweler, owner of a highly successful jewelry store

unnamed

Devon Jeweler joined the military in 1988 and worked hard to advance the ranks at a fast pace. During that time, he was fortunate enough to travel to over 13 countries and pass through the Panama Canal twice. Devon learned to be very frugal while in the Navy due to living on a ship with limited space for four years. He would also shine boots for the others, charging a small fee and saving the money he earned. And with his shipmates constantly wasting money on drinking and other activities, Devon found himself loaning out money with a hefty interest placed on top of it on a few occasions. Devon opened a mutual fund and would deposit a few hundred dollars off every check into the account every month. After spending 12 years in the navy, Devon decided to leave due to Bill Clinton’s decision to reduce military personnel’s retirement benefits. He also felt that the military was beginning to become too political.

After leaving the Navy, Devon was originally planning to work for a power plant company. But first, he went to help his parents relocate their jewelry store to the Waterman Discount Mall when it first opened on September 29th, 1999. Devon didn’t know a single thing about sales or jewelry when he first started helping his parents with their store. But thankfully he was always a quick thinker and honest with people. While he was preparing to leave for the power plant job, his father told him to try and sell the silver and not to touch the gold. Devon was so good at selling it that it was like selling came naturally to him. Of course, he had to learn all of the different slang terms that were commonly used. But as he started learning it and using the lingo, people seemed to love it. And this is how Devon’s adventure into owning a jewelry store of his own started.

Seeing how good he was at sales, Devon’s parents told him that he should set up a store of his own. At first, he wasn’t sure if opening a store was something he really wanted to do because of the long hours it would require. But in the end, Devon decided that owning his own store would be better than working for someone else and their business. By this point, he had already saved 100K thanks to the mutual savings fund he had opened and was just 33 years old. He was able to use his savings to get things started and obtained a credit line to increase his inventory for the store.

In the beginning, things were very slow for Devon, and he considered it a good day when he made a few hundred dollars. And when he sold $1k worth of merchandise in one day for the first time, he was super excited. Back when Devon was first starting out, the price of gold was around $255 per ounce. Today the price of gold is significantly higher at $1,850 per ounce. Every chance he got, he would go out and buy gold and silver because he understood that the more inventory he had, the more product he had to sell to his customers. For years he didn’t do any partying or go out due to still having a military mindset. Over the years, his business would continue to gain momentum and has now evolved exponentially. Now Devon owns a multi-million dollar business and most people know him as Devon Jeweler.

Over the past 20 years, there’s been a few huge issues that have been a consistent issue for Devon Jeweler. One of the biggest issues he’s had to deal with since opening his store is the obvious issue of theft. There are many dishonest people out there, and Devon accepted that it was just one of the many risks of owning a business. Another constant issue he’s faced with is when people don’t understand buying lower-priced items typically means the quality is not as good as the higher-priced items. For instance, jewelry that’s imported has a higher price point than jewelry that’s manufactured domestically. Also, the more a piece of jewelry shines, the more labor was involved in creating it so it’s more expensive.

As of now, Devon Jeweler only owns one store location but is interested in opening up more locations. He always does holiday sales and posts the sales promotions on his social media profiles when he does sales at his store. Like most business owners, he was hit with the hardships of Covid-19 last year. But he invested time into his eCommerce website and saw enough progress with his website that he was able to stay afloat without receiving any assistance from government offered programs. And it looks like his business will continue to keep growing and evolving with the times.
