“Bee-Stinger, better known as “The Son of The Hip Hop Movement” (given to him by the legendary Busy Bee) was part of the younger generation in crowds in awe of the founding forefathers of Hip Hop. He recalls Busy Bee enlightening his mind, “you are all sons and daughters of Hip Hop culture.”

Here is some history that often is not noted in Hip Hop culture. DJ’s like Grandmaster Flowers and Pete DJ Jones were one of the first DJ’s in the clubs that people knew of who were spinning disco, then Hank Span from WWRL came along showing off his wordplay live on the radio. This inspired DJ’s to add hype on the mic like DJ Hollywood at Studio 54 & The Garage. Disco King Mario of the Black Spades (first division) from Bronxdale projects, created one of the early venues to play Hip Hop at P.S. 123 in the Bronx and was DJing outside in the parks. He is also credited as DJ to Chief Rocker Busy Bee (1st solo emcee to rap on the mic in the realm of Hip Hop). The Hip Hop Movement also recognizes the true first ladies of Hip-Hop including Sha Rock, Lisa Lee, and Debbie Dee. In 1982 Melle Mel changed the game in Hip Hop with his recording of the song “The Message” which became an instant classic and one of the first glimmers of conscious Hip Hop.  During the golden age of rap in the 90’s Public Enemy blasted on the scene and gave the Hip Hop Movement the legs to stand on…

In 1990, also while working with the rap group Snap!, Ronald “Bee-Stinger” Savage a former member of the Zulu Nation is credited for carving the term “Six Elements of the Hip Hop Movement” as inspired by Public Enemy’s recordings. The “Six Elements of The Hip Hop Movement” are Consciousness Awareness, Civil Rights Awareness, Activism Awareness, Justice, Political Awareness, and Community Awareness in music…

Ronald “Bee-Stinger” Savage went on to develop The Hip Hop Movement’s foundation in late 2016. His efforts were not unnoticed, in fact, the movement and brand became a major staple in Hip Hop culture as well as a registered service mark. The movement connects R&B, Civil Rights Movement, and Hip Hop culture into one brand, “Hip is the culture and Hop is the movement.”

Today, The Hip Hop Movement is the backbone of Hip Hop as it addresses persistent societal issues. Its mission is to provide a platform for emcees to share their conscious music that exudes substance and positive messages for our youth and communities, messages that strive for encouragement and empowerment. “Artists and Hip Hop enthusiasts head over to The Hip Hop Movement’s streaming channel on ROKU TV and submit your music now.”

Shea Brown – What It’s Worth

Published

on

Multitalented young artist Shea Brown drops two new singles in advance of forthcoming EP ‘Merri-Go-Round’ 

PONTIAC, MI – Though Shea Brown has been writing music with the craft a person well beyond her years since she was age 8, there’s perhaps been no better display of her talents than with the new EP “Merri-Go-Round.” Set to drop before the end of the year, this six-song showcase offers fans all over the world a deeper look into who this young star is and how her unique talent is lighting up the music industry. Displaying a range of abilities across multiple genres, Shea offers a little bit of Pop, R&B, Hip Hop and more on this project, with a distinct nod to the legends of old paired with a modern-day vibe that’s undeniably catchy. 

“It’s all different songs with different sounds and vibes which is what the title refers to,” she said. “I just don’t feel like we have that versatility anymore, and I feel like I’m bringing that back. It’s a little bit of old-school and you will definitely hear some of the things that were done in the 50s and 60s, but in a different type of way. That’s true to who I am as an artist. I’ve always been told that I don’t sound like anyone else. I have a unique voice. I have my own signature sound.” 

Shea has always been somewhat of a musical butterfly and songwriter. She first started getting into music when she was 8 years old, harmonizing and singing melodies and writing her own songs as she explored her skill as a poet. Destined to be a star and inspired by musical legend Brandy, Shea would hear her songs and before long she would be singing them word-for-word, hitting every note just like the musical icon. Shocking even to her parents, Shea’s vocal ability showed that even at a young age she was a superstar in the making. She honed her skills over the years through live performances at various events throughout the area, and started chasing her dream to become a globally recognized singer and songwriter. 

Two debut singles from the forthcoming EP showcase her raw talent impressively. “What It’s Worth” is an R&B and Soul track that showcases both her depth and her range as a vocalist as she sings about a girl who falls in love and does what she can to prove what she’s worth to her man. “Me and My Girlfriends” on the other hand, is an upbeat party track that’s all about all the things that are bound to happen before, and while you are at the club with your girlfriends. 

“They have their little drinks and do all these things before they go out and have fun,” Shea said. “That’s what I wanted this song to be – just a fun party song. Before we go out to the club, let’s get ready for the club. It’s straight Hip Hop and just fun.”

Both singles are currently available across all streaming platforms with the full EP set to drop later this fall. She said she’s also planning on another album for early 2021

The Whole Sick Croo – Play Along

Published

on

New music from The Whole Sick Croo reflects hot political themes 

WASHINGTON D.C. – DC area rocker, Phil Dubitsky delivers poignant political music which addresses present day concerns. His Hard Rock/Punk Rock fusion has a bit of rootsy Americana and Blues mixed with Heavy Metal aggression. 

His latest single, “Play Along” discusses different sides which participate and vote in a democratic society. Voting is not difficult to do, but the artist is critical of the options. Released in late September, the song is topical for what is going on right now. “Play Along,” the latest in a series of politically based releases, was written last year in anticipation of the current election cycle. 

“Play Along” features distinct slide guitar, bass riffs and bluesy scales, in contrast to Phil’s upcoming single, “Majority Rules,” a more straightforward rock track which tells how democracy results in the majority enforcing their idea of right and wrong onto the minority. The new single is due to be released on October 20. 

While creating awareness of issues, Phil tries not to be super preachy when putting his opinion out there for people. “While not all of my music is political, the singles I have put out in the back half of this year are fairly political. I use my music more as a way of getting the conversation started about socio political issues than specifically trying to tell people what to think or feel,” Phil stated. “By getting people to talk about or even just think about those issues, you start to open the door for those issues to be addressed and potentially fixed.” 

Currently releasing music under the name “The Whole Sick Croo,” Phil is working solo now. He does it all – from writing lyrics and melodies, to recording his instrumentation and vocals in a home studio. He also mixes and masters his own music. Phil has created an intelligent, more self sufficient way of working, allowing him to concentrate on producing and releasing music. 

Putting out lyrics that are right on the nose, Phil’s messages are straightforward and easy to understand. “For me personally, being more direct with your messaging means more people will realize what you’re saying.” Eager to encourage dialog, Phil Dubitsky is an artist who is not afraid to share his opinions.
