Shayx Fear – “Hallelujah”

Despite traveling and moving around a lot, North Texas rapper Shayx Fear has always called Texas home. From performing in the clubs until 2 AM opening for Riff Raff, Waka Flakka, Chanel West Coast, Lil Twist and Webbie to running around in the heart of Deep Ellum, Shayx loves his home town despite the fact that the scene in D-Town might not be for everyone.
“I’ve played guitar and piano for the for as long as I can remember,” Shayx Fear said. “But after my dad found me in my room rapping, rap quickly became how I started and ended everyday. After a few years I became submersed in the entire culture; who started it, who killed it and who’s changing it. One day I decided I was going to be one of them because I felt I truly had something to add to Hip Hop.”
Now with years of experience making music, Shayx Fear is releasing his album led by his song “Hallelujah.”  The song is a deep song that speaks to his connection with his spirit and offers gratitude the for his strength and perseverance in his life.
“One of my closest friends, Chris Ciervo, the head producer at S.U.P. Studios produced the song when he was 15 years old,” Shayx Fear said of his song that will be found on his Hallelujah EP.
With plans to perform at 2018’s SXSW and spot dates in Tyler, Lubbock and Dallas’s Deep Ellum, Shayx Fear tells fans to stay updated on his website Therealshayx.com where they can find all information on his career.

OJ Da Juiceman Ft. Decatur Redd – Pyrex

When the history of ATL’s trap era is written there needs to be a whole chapter about Otis Williams Jr. aka OJ Da Juiceman. Born and raised in East Atlanta, he made a name for himself putting in work at the Texaco and shook up the local music scene in 2004 with his song “Black Tee.” His street exploits are the stuff of legend, such as surviving a shooting in 2009 and coming back to perform onstage that same week. Over the years he’s worked closely with Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka and maintained a steady flow of mixtapes and albums, collaborating with the city’s top producers including DJ Drama, Trap-A-Holics, 808 Mafia and Mike Will Made It.

O.J.’s latest release, of which the artist says, simply: “Juiceman been in the streets—had to pull my Pyrex out on these folks.” Stream the Decatur Redd-produced track above.

Lil Ronny MothaF – Charlie Brown Story

The “Charlie Brown Story“ is a best of both worlds concept put into a deep story between 2 men, Charlie Brown and Mr. Johnson. Charlie Brown is a convicted felon that’s just trying to get his life back together but seems to be finding a hard time getting a job. So he settles for his last resort, which is to go take from the next, just to provide for his family.

Mr. Johnson is a doctor that just so happens to be at home enjoying a movie when Charlie Brown decided to break into his house and Mr. Johnson is just naturally reacting to a break in by protecting his family who is upstairs asleep in this drama/musical called “Charlie Brown Story.“

The same reason that Charlie Brown broke into Mr. Johnson’s house will be the same exact reason Mr. Johnson has to lay down the law. Happy Holidays. -Lil Ronny MothaF
