Spacey Cain – “Waste Time”

Published

on

unnamed-2

Continuing to put pressure on the game with his hit single, “Waste Time,” rapper Spacey Cain has emerged on the LA scene by way of Atlanta. Originally brought up in New Orleans this journeyman moved out of New Orleans at an early age to escape the typical crime we see in a city. From being incarcerated to battling poverty, Spacey Cain is not a position to “Waste Time.” Time is off the essence and Spacey Cain is on a mission to achieve his childhood dreams.

“Don’t waste yo time on anything else but yourself because when I first got outta jail I felt like I was behind in life.  My mentality was not caring about anything else except my dream because if I don’t care, then Ima miss my shot.  I also always got played by females I dealt with and my intentions always been pure and they always were going against me when I never had any intention of doing them wrong.  My heart been broken by females over 100 times and this song speaks to that hurt and pain.”

The struggles of Spacey Cain‘s youth not only helped him grow as a person, but it made him extremely ambitious so that he would never have to go through a situation like that again.

“I’m from the 13th ward, the West Bank. My projects are gone now, but my childhood was really in Atlanta, Arizona and California because my parents didn’t want me to get in trouble in the streets of New Orleans, we were in real poverty,” Spacey Cain said. “But it made me ambitious and it gave me a lot of different emotions toward making sure I got out of the struggle. It just grew a hunger that I shouldn’t be like this. I shouldn’t be going through this and I feel this. I feel like it’s in my blood to be great and I was going through all that different stuff, I was just trying to find ways to make it out to better my situation.”

Despite his attempts to stay out of the streets Spacey Cain became entrapped by the Arizona justice system and took a case for his brother who had a child on the way. While having a criminal record thwarted Spacey Cain‘s hopes of making it to college sports, it spawned his new custom shoe company, Cain Customs, that gained the attention of celebrities like Kevin Gates and Jay Electronica to name a few.

“I made that company when I got out of jail.  It was just weed charges but before I went to jail I was trying to focus on school because I wasn’t going to make it in sports because I was short. I had lost faith in going to college and playing sports in college so I just thought I would focus on rap.  I was in Phoenix and it turned out to be a way for me to make money to put towards my music career,” Spacey Cain said.  “I went and got a job on my 16th birthday and my first two checks I invested into the company and I was grinding with it. Just putting money into the company. From there I was able to design a couple shoes for celebrities, I was networking and doing my thing and got some popularity because of that.”

Going forward Spacey Cain is preparing for the release of his project Spacey Cain Astronomical which is set for release later this year.

Akee Fontane “Respected” Feat. Da Baby Visual @iamfontane

Published

on

Akee Fontane has released the official video for “Respected” featuring DaBaby.

Akeem Coston, known by the world as Akee Fontane is a rapidly-emerging American hip-hop artist from Wilmington, Delaware who’s attracting attention for his deeply creative vibe and unique lyrical flows.

Fontane began his journey towards becoming an artist when his older brother Keon put a pen in his hand at just five years old. By age 12, he was freestyling in rap battles, developing the skills to instantly express himself over any type of track. Fontane can rock a club banger but can also show listeners a more personal part of himself through lyrics pulled from the events of his life, including being put out on the street at 17 and surviving in a city where a 21st birthday is not guaranteed. These experiences give Fontane and his music a toughness that’s authentic and original.

His latest releases, Big Dreams Small City (distributed by Pure Luxury Ent.) and G.A.B.O.S dropped in 2019 to major acclaim but multiple platforms. Big City Small Dreams was produced by Grammy-nominated Atlanta producer The Shoota. Taking inspiration from icons like Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Jay-Z as well as other up-and-comers like himself, Fontane has crafted a set of music that is fresh, real, and relevant.

Akee loves performing for his fans and absorbing their energy. He always gives them everything he has. He’s driven to succeed by his love for his son and by the memories of surviving the bitter Eastern winters that built his character at an early age. Akee Fontane is an important and inventive voice in the state-of-the-art music world of today.

Not able to shoot a regular video because of social distancing, Akee decided on an animated video. The animated visual for “Respected” was edited by Bucks Baga.

His latest project “G.A.B.O.S (Game Ain’t Based On Sympathy)” is out on all major platforms.

SPEECH – A Different World (Reaction To Capitol Insurrection)

Published

 “This song had to be made to become proactive in shaping our collective future, because the rebellion that happened on January 6, 2021, in Washington D.C. was the curtain being pulled back on race, lies, and darkness in America,” Speech explains. “It’s obvious that about half of America is living in a fictitious bubble and are responding accordingly. That’s why I wanted to share facts about the lawlessness and hypocrisy that was occurring. We may be at the start of another Civil war and a lot of bloodshed.” -SPEECH

Atlanta, GA…Like millions of other Americans, Grammy Award-winning artist Speech of the legendary Afro-centric Hip Hop group Arrested Development watched in horror as a swath of die-hard Trump loyalists stormed the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. As the dedicated MC he is, Speech put the pen to paper and spit out the single “A Different World,” an anthemic call-to-action that both preserve his artistic integrity and passion for socio-political issues.

“On the night of the terrorist attack that already killed five people, I did a YouTube post, I posted various things on social media, but none of it seemed adequate, especially from a music documentation perspective,” he said of the song’s evolution. “So, I went into the studio, pulled out my Beat Thang, sampler, etc. The jazz/boom bap energy for this song was intentional, meant to be a throwback energy from the ‘90s-type approach. In my opinion, those sensibilities lend themselves to reflection, grooves, and hope, while still showing the urgency of this moment. I also purposely rhymed with a higher pitch, cuz I wanted my emotions of helplessness, rage but also engagement to come through.” -SPEECH

“A Different World” follows Expansion Pt. 1, Speech’s first solo EP in 14 years, and will appear on his upcoming full-length album Expansion. As he flirts within the song’s breakdown, “This is a time for good-hearted people of all races that love Hip Hop to show the world a path to peace and truth! Plot, Plan, Strategize, Organize and Mobilize. Please spread the vibes. We aren’t helpless, we can make a different world.”
