Welsh– Djyrsjerzy whats going on brother? I see you everywhere what sup?

Djyrsjerzy – I’m just on the grind man this has been a crazy year for me I am just staying focused and working hard right now. I know that one day all my hard work will pay off and I feel like that time is really coming soon. I have been getting a lot of love from everybody so I can’t let the people down.

Welsh – let me ask are you a Dj as in club? Or Mixtape? What is your role?

DJYrsjerzy – Right now I’m a mixtape DJ I don’t want to put too much on my plate right now so i am just focused on mixtapes right now. I am mainly working building SKE Records which is an independent label based out in Philly. I am also working hard for an artist i manage named Chox-Mak he is going to resurrect the boom bap era of hip hop.

Welsh – Where are you from?

DJYrsJerzy I am from Jersey City, New Jersey but I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina to focus on my music career. I feel like I can get a lot more work done down south than I could do up in New Jersey. There are a lot of distractions up there for me because I know so many people. Out in Charlotte I just feel like it’s easier to focus on my projects I have in the works.

Welsh- Do you rap also? I see you have other artist you promote as well?

DJYrsJerzy – No, I don’t rap I am a DJ and I am just pushing Chox-Mak heavy right now. I have yet to get a bad comment about his music everyone likes that he brings a different sound. He is one of the most versatile artists I ever worked with so by me just saying that i feel like he can take on any beat. You will definitely see a lot more projects from me and Chox-Mak in the future.

Welsh – I see you use to be affiliate with coast to coast do you still do work for them?

DJYrsJerzy– I never worked for them I was just another DJ that made an account at that time. I was a Coast to Coast DJ when I first started to get involved with this industry. Now I am doing my own thing and I don’t really need to be a part of DJ coalitions.

Welsh – You on the blog sites heavy man do you have your own blog site?

DjYrsJerzy – I don’t have my own website because I know too many people that own websites and they all support me. I am the promotional director of hip-hopvibe.com they were the first website to support me so I will always support them as well. It’s been dope to see all these websites and online magazines supporting me I’m just grateful for everything.

Welsh – Talk about your movement Ske records?

DJYrsJerzy – SKE Records isn’t necessarily my movement it was started a while ago by Q the Question and Trel Mack who signed me a couple months ago. Everyone in the SKE Records camp is a hard worker there is not one day when we aren’t grinding and making these moves to build the name. We also have a website with all of our information and recent projects everyone can go to skerecords.com to find the latest on what we are all working on.

Welsh – Now in Carolina how do you feel the HipHop scene out here?  I feel like it needs a lot of work but there are a couple dope artists outside of the city that I am in. I’m used to hearing dope music and I feel like a lot of these Carolina artists have to step their game up. For the most part it’s alright but there is a lot of improvement needed if this state really wants to be taken seriously in this industry.

Welsh – Do you think that executives are scared to invest in an artist from NC?

DJYrsJerzy  – I feel like they really don’t know about the scene and there aren’t really that many artists that are making noise in North Carolina right now. Most artists get over shadowed by Atlanta artists many NC artists travel to Atlanta anyway. SO I feel like nothing will really change for NC right now until people start making more moves in their own city instead of traveling somewhere else.

Welsh – You having your own movement are there any majors that are reaching out to you guys to help distribute?

DJYrsJerzy – Right now Chox-Mak does have some labels interested in him but I can’t give any details on that right now. We are just going to keep continuing to drop projects because the people are supporting both me and Chox heavily right now. We are defiantly on our way soon it’s just a matter of time.

Welsh – What’s the future for DJYrsJerzy and Ske records? The future is looking very bright for us Trel Mack will be one of the biggest artists in the game soon. We also have another artist that is next up after Trel and he goes by the name of Petter Jones. Q the Question always has something in the works so you never know where we will be in the future. I just know that we will definitely be successful.

Welsh – Is Chox-mak the face you pushing right now?

DjYrsJerzy – Chox-Mak is the main artist I’m pushing to the fullest right now he is signed to my management company DYJ Management. I plug Chox into everything I do because I know he has the talent and work ethic to become something big in the industry. Chox-Mak is going to be a big deal in the next couple of months you can mark my words.

Welsh – Coming into second half of the year what do you have plan? mixtapes? Shows? Videos?

DJYrsJerzy– I have a little bit of everything in the works right now. It was recently announced that I would be hosting a mixtape with HOT 97’s own Shauni Kulture it’s called “The Kulture Movement Vol. 1”. I would like to give a big shout out to K.B Tindal for setting that up. You can submit your music for the mixtape at kulturetindaljerzy@gmail.com.

Welsh – My man I see you working heavy out here you on these blogs I wish nothing but success to you and keep in contact with us Onthesceneny.

Interview: LA Native Honey Blu Shares New Single “Sex Ain’t Better Than Love”

Published

In a recent interview, LA native songstress Honey Blu opens up about her life growing up around music, her new song, and what to look out for in the future.

Aureeyahn, better known by her stage name Honey Blu, is a Los Angeles native who grew up in South LA, where she attended Rock Of Faith Missionary Baptist Church. She attended church faithfully with her aunt, who was part of the senior choir — and it was there that Honey Blu joined the children’s choir and found an even deeper passion for music. Additionally, Honey Blu credits her parents as a factor for her love for and pursuit of her current music career. She remarks on her dad bringing her along to studio sessions and playing his music for her on car rides, where she regards how influential he was in her pursuing a career in music. During the interview, Honey Bluu also revealed that she was related to the legendary Al Wilson, famous for his song, “Show & Tell,” stating that “music runs in [her] blood.” 

My family on my dad’s side would always talk about him and how music runs in our blood,” she said. “My dad also used to play his music a lot in the car. I was inspired by his lyricism because he wrote about the things that he went through.”

Honey Blu noted that her musical influences include Cat Iz, Jill Scott, The Native Tongues, The Soulquarians, 9th Wonder, Queen Latifah, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye. With a plethora of influences, it is no wonder Honey Blu has made such a unique sound. Stating, her “sound definitely falls under R & B and Neo-Soul sonically as well.” Honey Blu says she dedicated her life to music because it is her purpose.

“Since I was young, I believe that the most high has called me to use my creative abilities as a tool,” she said. “I have a gift, and must fulfill that purpose.”

Honey Blu’s talents translate in the musical realm. Her newest single “Sex Ain’t Better Than Love” is her first single since 2019, and if this is anything like her up and coming project dropping later this year, it will be something to look out for, as her melody and sound will rightfully grab anyone’s attention. The sensual R&B track shows off her vocals and abilities in an impressive way.

Stream “Sex Ain’t Better Than Love” on Spotify below, and continue reading to learn more about the singer.

What city are you from/ Where are you based now?
I am from in Los Angeles, California. I am still in the Los Angeles Area, primarily South Central. You can catch me mostly in Leimert Park, Long Beach, Carson, or Inglewood.

What is your artist name? What is your real name? How did you get your artist name?
My artist name is Honey Blu! My real name is Aureeyahn. I named myself when I was in high school, I was learning a lot about aura’s and spirituality at the time. I felt that the color blue represented my aura most because the various shades of blue reflect different energies and emotions. The honey part came because honey is sweet, tough, and raw, and I felt that it was a good metaphor to describe my personality. So there you have it “Honey Blu”. I took out the “e” from blue because I just thought it looked cooler lol.

At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music?
I have been involved in music since I was around 6 or 7. One Christmas, I remember my mom bought me a karaoke machine with a microphone and tapes to record myself. I would make my songs and save my recordings. My Auntie Lucille (rest in power) attended Rock Of Faith Missionary Baptist Church in South Central, LA, and was in the senior choir. I eventually joined the children’s choir because I used to go to church with her almost every Sunday at one point in my childhood. My father is also a rapper, so I used to roll with my dad to the studio sometimes, and would let me go inside the booth and even let me be on some of his tracks! My dad really pushed me to keep pursuing music, and I have always loved music. Music saved my life.

Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?
My great grandfather is Al Wilson, who was a successful recording artist in the ’70s. He had a hit song called “Show & Tell”. My family on my dad’s side would always talk about him and how music runs in our blood. My dad also used to play his music a lot in the car. I was inspired by his lyricism because he wrote about the things that he went through. My mom also played a lot of Amerie, Jill Scott, Keyshia Cole, and other R&B/ Soul Artists. My parents have been supportive of all of my creative art endeavors. They let me be free to express myself and create, so I feel this was very vital to growing and defining my sound as an artist.

How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?
My sound falls under Hip Hop for sure. Hip Hop encompasses so much when it comes to how I create. My sound definitely falls under R & B and Neo-Soul sonically as well.

What ultimately inspired you to dedicate yourself to a music career?
God. Since I was young, I believe that the most high has called me to use my creative abilities as a tool. I have a gift, and now I am old enough to realize my purpose. It only makes sense to dedicate myself to what I already am inherently good at, and with practice, I can grow to be even greater.

What’s one reason you are passionate about music, and what inspires you?
I am passionate about music because it gives me the ability to communicate and connect with people. Communication is vital in any relationship, especially when it comes to the communication between the artist and the listener. I aspire to be transparent, honest with myself and with my art. My people inspire me. My African roots and heritage inspire me. My community inspires me Hip Hop Inspires Me…. I could go on.

Do you have any hobbies outside of music? What do you do to stay creative?
I love to read! I am currently finishing up “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” and “One Africa One Nation” by Omali Yeshitela. I completed 11 books last year, along with reading a variety of scholarly journals, archives, and political reports. When it comes to staying creative, I am working at creating a more consistent routine for creativity. I usually just go with the flow, but over time I realized I work best when I intentionally block out time for creative projects. 

What are some of your music career goals for the future?
To get over a billion streams on my songs and for my music to go worldwide. Tour internationally. I want to be a legend. I am only here to give my very best, nothing less.

Tell us about the project that you are promoting. What is it about? Is it a single or EP? Also, what is the name of the last project you released?
“Sex Ain’t Better Than Love” is my latest single, which was just released on January 10, 2021, on all streaming platforms!!!

The first official single I have released since 2019 on all streaming platforms that I feel 100% confident in as an artist. I wrote this song at around 3 in the morning one day. I couldn’t sleep because I had been up all night working on marketing stuff. The beat for this song had been playing over and over in my head, and I really wanted to record a song to it at the studio session I had literally the same morning around 10 am. At the time, I was going through a situation that I talk about in the song, so it wasn’t too hard to write. I finished the whole track in about 30 minutes.

What has the response been like to that project?
The response has been great so far! People are making videos already knowing the lyrics, and that is crazzzy to me haha. I am very thankful for the response. I can not wait to drop more content from this single.

What are some projects you’ve done in the past that you are most proud of and why?
I am most proud of all of the music I have written over the course of my lifetime. I am a songwriter. I definitely have written about 200 songs, some of that may just be verses or hooks, but I am a writer, so I am always writing something. I am also proud of the first music video I ever shot for my song “SUMMERTIME” in 2019. Now available on my website HoneyBluu.com

What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for? Include some dates if you have them.
I am currently working on finishing up my debut project scheduled to release this year. I have some more singles coming out very soon and some exclusive content you can only find on my website, so I am very excited to keep dropping stuff so the people can know what I have been working so hard on.

What message do you hope fans take away from your music?
I want people to take what they need from what I had to say or express through my music. I hope that my messages are clear and articulate, and I wanted to get across through my music. Some of my songs won’t be for everybody, and that is okay too. I do that intentionally. My music is a part of my freedom.

Where can we follow you on social media?
