Leintz Ft. Fred The Godson – “Whoa”

Published

on

 Today we get a new single from New York City \ rapper Leintz, who collaborated with the late-Fred The Godson for the track “Whoa” produced by Mic Coats.

When the world was struck with the COVID-19 pandemic, nobody knew all the lives that would be lost, including one of New York City’s most respected and talented emcees, Fred The Godson. 

“Me and Fred had a very good connection. I contacted his manager then he gave me Fred’s number and history was made from there. We shared laughs, and he told me about himself, schooled me on how the industry worked and even met my son through FaceTime,” Leintz explained. “When he was hospitalized I held back on the release of my single just to make sure he was doing well. When his wife posted that he was getting better, I was excited.  Shortly two weeks later and three days after my single’s release, he tragically passed away.  I didn’t know how to handle that. Even though it was business, I believe in longevity and we could’ve ended up as good friends.”

But while Fred the Godson is gone in the physical form, Leintz is still carry the torch in his spirit, expanding on his lifelong passion to make music and write poetry. 

Born and raised in Jamaica Queens, Leintz has spent the last 10 years going back and forth from Colorado and New York as he was deciding where he wanted to settle. 

“I started off writing poetry at the age of nine on my elementary school boards, but due to depression and other tribulations at the age of 12, my poetry gradually came off aggressive.  Then I discovered I had to add a flow to it and it was all fun and games from there throughout high school. Once I got to college I started taking music more seriously,” Leintz explained. 

After taking time for several years to understand the music industry, this is the first official single by Leintz which has already gotten some major support after finding its way onto HOT97 radio in NYC  and with Shade45’s DJ Kay Slay.

Combined with the efforts and work of well-known manager and music businessman Smit BDM CEO, Leintz is creating timeless music that will reach the masses. 

Set to be featured on his upcoming project named after his son, The Santana Album, Leintz plans to spend the next few months promoting his “Whoa” single with subsequent album releases.  

“No shows for now since we are dealing with a pandemic worldwide but once everything is back to normal, I’ll be back to rocking stages again,” Leintz concluded. “Expect great content. I’m making music that everybody can relate to. My goal is to touch the people because I figured if I can tell my story, I’m probably telling their stories and that way I can give everybody good music”

Finding The Fun In Music With Jdiggs Tha Prodigy

Published

on

By

Patrick Jordan Diggs, better known by his stage name Jdiggs Tha Prodigy is a Rapper/Songwriter from Fort Worth, Texas. Raised in a heavily religious household, he got his start in music in the church choir. He comes from a family of singers, although he himself does not sing much. He first got his start in rapping free styling at house parties with his friends. It wasn’t until his late friend Sam “Sammy G” Garcia took him to a studio session in 2009 that he first recorded a prewritten verse to the “Uptown” beat by Drake , Bun B and Lil Wayne . He has often been told that he sounds like a southern version of E-40 , or even a young, “less angry” Ice Cube . He would prefer to say that he just sounds like himself, but comparisons will always come whether he wants them or not. Having many different influences, he has a wide range of artistic ability and is willing to do anything that he wants to do with the sole purpose of just being heard. Anything from hip-hop to pop to just plain out side of the box style tracks, there is something for everyone to like in this man’s repertoire.

After the release of his album R.P.G. Repent, Progress & Growth in late 2019, Jdiggs Tha Prodigy set out on a mission to rediscover the fun in making music. Having been bogged down by the politics and the antics of the scene he was surrounded by, he was forced to take a step back and make another plan of attack. Thus began the work on his newest project, 4700 with first single being “Tha Prodigy”. For this new project, he’s been able to find the fun in making music all over again.

“I’d like to think that I’ve got a song for all moods on this project. I want people to be able to use some of the lines as captions and status’ on social media. I want the listener to enjoy the music and relate to it without feeling like it’s reminding them of their own problems.”

For this new single he’s enlisted the help of Deluzion Productions, trying out different delivery methods, new cadences and even a bit of singing, Jdiggs has really exhibited an immense amount of Growth.

“I send Huck a new track almost every day. When I get an idea, I have to get it on record as quickly as possible even if it’s just a rough draft. Sometimes I feel like it might be too much, but he never tells me to stop sending them so I’m gonna keep sending them haha.”

Turning his focus to visuals, he’s teamed up with Kenny Varner of Blurry Vision Films to help bring the visions to life.

“All these years I’ve been putting out music, I never got around to shooting music videos. My motto has always been ‘I just want to be heard’ and I stuck to that so much to where almost no one could put a face to my name and sound. I know that definitely held me back from progressing in my career, but now it’s something I can mark off my to-do list.”

His previous releases and newest single has already assisted him in leaving fans wanting more from him. Trust and believe that if you haven’t found your favorite JDiggs Tha Prodigy track yet, it is in the process of being written or recorded at any given time.
