Jaz Flow & Adam Wise – “Piece Of Cake”

Coming out of Louisiana where they’re the most unlikely of pairs, Jaz Flow and Adam Wise, are more similar than they are different. Seeking to bring something new to the game, this tandem has repeatedly shown people that music knows no bounds.

“We wanted to bring something different to the table for Hip-Hop. Working off of each other’s uniqueness we decided to do a song together and that song got a crazy response – from there we decided to create an album called Project Light,” Jaz Flow said.

The decision to collab paid off as the guys have found their way onto BET Jams, WorldStarHipHop, Revolt and a host of sites including The Source, DJBooth, AllHIipHop and Southern influencer TrapsNTrunks.

Most recently Jaz and Adam toured through New York visiting Shade 45, Thisis50, Combs Enterprises, Def Jam, Vevo and many other major platforms. They are booked for the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and will precede across the border to Rosarito Beach, Mexico for an international showcase Feb 10th.

When the tour is over, the duo will come back to Cali where they will be hosting parties throughout the NBA All Star Weekend in Los Angeles which is sure to bring out a host of celebrities and entertainers.

“As far as i can remember, I have always wanted to change the world with my music. The most influential people in the world are artists because the most influential tool in the world is music” Adam Wise explained.

Immersed in music as a kid watching Yo MTV Raps, Jaz Flow found he had a way with words at an early age as he began to learn how to rhyme. “I wanted to motivate people and shed light on the things going on in the world,” Jaz Flow explained.

But despite their way with words, both Adam Wise and Jaz Flow realize that you can’t force knowledge onto your fans.

“In 2015 I realize most people didn’t want to hear conscious music so I began to twist styles up and drop golden nuggets for people to pick up on. I was searching for my own way to create ‘fun’ music with the light embedded.” Adam Wise said

Heavily influenced by groups like Outkast, Adam Wise and Jaz Flow continue to master their craft, continuing to push boundaries and even cross lines in music.

With their 4th visual “Piece of Cake” the guys closed out 2017 in epic fashion receiving about 225k plays in just under a month. After streaming over a millions times on Spotify alone, From the 3 continues to put Adam Wise x Jaz Flow (iii) in position to earn the notoriety they rightfully deserve.

Showing his Nigerian roots via his catchy Afro-Pop styled music, Kelly Anthony most recently turned heads with the release of his single “Snake.” Now the young boss is making a push with the clean visual for his sure hit single with an Afro-Pop twist.

“I started making music when I was 11 after I fell in love with R Kelly’s music. From there I sang in my mother’s church choir until I was 15 at which point I began singing R&B and recorded my first demo,” Kelly Anthony said. My mother was a heavy church goer and she didn’t want me doing R&B as much as the church music, but I started saving money to record music. I really looked up to R. Kelly and became inspired to make my own music after already having a background in music.”

Kelly Anthony is excited about the release of his video for the song “Snake” because, “it’s a natural, catchy and undeniable concept that mixes Nigerian culture with North American style.”

“Snake almost is creating a new genre, because Afro music is really popular back home in Nigeria, but I’m trying to add English to it instead of the Nigerian slang of Afro music. I’m all about embracing my culture and telling people my story from Nigeria to Toronto. I think my new style makes it something everyone can understand and I’m bringing my culture to the world.”

Music that will make you happy, music that will make you dance, Snake is just the beginning,” Kelly Anthony said. “I’m a studio head, I’m always in the studio making music. I’m just trying to make a fun record, so that’s why the song is so short. It’s a quick dance record that people can dance to and relate to no matter where you are in the world.”
