Koncreat – “On My Mind” | @koncreat

Published

on

Philly musician, Koncreat, was born Jamar Jones on March 14, 1991, in North Philadelphia and raised in West Philadelphia, he formed a short-lived group with neighborhood friends Source Waveron and Murda Meen named, Critical Bars in 2009. The trio released a mixtape: Critical Condition in February 2011, which soon led to their break-up. Following the short-lived group, Koncreat embarked on a solo career.

Koncreat became musically inspired at the of 7, where his early rhymes began. Born into poverty, he used rhyming to escape his day to day reality. With the abrupt disappearance of his mother, Koncreat was forced to relocate to his father’s home in West Philadelphia. After the sudden change he lost his passion for rhymes, but soon after became musically inclined by playing the violin at age 12. This opened a gateway for Koncreat to soon begin creating his own pieces of music.

Fully inspired and influenced by Hip-Hop artists such as Jadakiss, Styles P, and Cassidy, Koncreat wanted to take his writing to another level, record and promote. With no studio to record his inspired thoughts, he used his earned money to buy cheap microphones from his local discount store. With an acquired computer from a close friend, Koncreat began to record on his computer’s built-in software. This soon led Koncreat to craft his own productions and excel in his abilities.

Now a full-fledged artist, producer, and engineer Koncreat has worked with many local and non-local talent.

The Philly native starts off 2021 with his first release in 5 years, the self-produced single, “On My Mind.”

“This track speaks about past insecurities I’ve had in the past and how it made me with newer confidence today,” Koncreat says.

“On My Mind” also speaks of social injustices and how the black community should do more to achieve what they deserve.

“On My Mind” is set to drop in early January 2021 on all digital music platforms.

Vtto – “Love By A Thread” (Official Video)

Rising artist Vtto’s heart is hanging on for dear life in the release of the new visual for his single “Love By A Thread.” Linking with Jaimar Viray (Akon, Will.I.Am), the Jersey-native shows us the darker elements of love in this mood visual presentation that will make him a bonafide star. The song is a perfect sound to enter into the summertime fling with after a disappointing Fall.

“This record means a lot to me in so many different ways” says Vtto. “When listening to the song, most people would assume it’s only about a relationship. The way I look at it, “Love By A Thread” really is a song for anyone who’s having thoughts about giving up on something. I want the listeners to really think about the decisions they’re making in life, but in a way that still motivates them to keep trying no matter how many times they’ve failed. The beauty of this song is that a listener can interpret it any way they really want to.”

The rest of 2021, Vtto promises more new music, which will lead up to a forthcoming project release. “Love By A Thread” is available now via Young Fellas Entertainment. Available on all streaming platforms.
