Cash Campain – Holy Matrimony Ft. CALEBORATE (Video) | @CashCampain @CALEBORATE

They say love and R&B are lost arts amongst this generation.. and if you’re dreaming of a “Holy Matrimony,” well, you can just forget about it.

Bay Area crooner Cash Campain is here to set the record straight and let it be known that this stigma doesn’t apply to everyone with his brand new music video. Th storyline of “Holy Matrimony” involves a PYT, a live performance that hopefully won her over, and a band that brought the serious vibes for the soundtrack to Campain’s new release. The songster grabs his blood brother, rising Bay emcee CALEBORATE to further reiterate the facts: love conquers all. And if miss lady is the one, watching Cash Campaign serenade all over the stage during his performance was as close to putting a ring on her finger than it could get.

Let’s make singers great again. Tune in up top for the latest, and stay tuned as Cash Campain is only warming up the masses for what more is to come.

Maycee – Indecisive (EP)

Initially grabbing the attention of superstar R&B artist Raheem Devaughn, Maycee is poised to become one of the biggest names in the industry with her relentless work ethic. After getting turned down at American Idol auditions, Maycee was ready to walk away, but her determination pulled her back and helped elevate her to a level she never say coming.

Indecisive is the fruit of that trust and process. Despite the title, the project presents an artist who is very decidedly undefined. Ranging from the boastful “I Got,” to the honest “Faded” featuring Chaz French — an ode to a toxic relationship that only seems to work under the influence — to the sonically rich and emotionally raw “Take Me Back,” the project serves not only as an introduction to Maycee , but also to a wave she and her mentor have dub the Ambiguous Art Movement – an approach to music that promises to marry the influence of the classics with the freedom of the Millennial generation. And no one could represent or lead it better.

Bred in a small Louisiana town called Houma just an hour from New Orleans and few hours from Baton Rouge, self-described Trap/Pop rapper Will Wes is gaining widespread attention online for his counter culture look crossed with his pop friendly Hip-Hop sound.

Sporting ear gauges, all black and tattoos across his face and neck Will Wes is all in on his music career and the fans are starting to notice – not just for his looks but also for his varied sound.

“When people see me, its going to f*ck your head up and I’m totally different from anyone else. I’m me and I’m not anyone else,” Will Wes explained. “It’s this thing I call trap-pop and I don’t see many artists doing it. It’s stuff Ive seen in the streets and its also that popish feeling of listening to Justin Bieber. You blend it together and you got Trap/Pop. Pop music over trap beats.”

Although the title of his project is yet to be named, the visual for his song “Pull Up” is already getting the attention of influencers online that are clamoring to know more about this small town trailer park rapper with big ambitions.

“The first record is called ‘Pull Up’ and I’m always reppin the trailer park, from trapping out the trailer park to bigger and better things. That exciting feeling to going from the trailer park to going to the boulevard,” Will Wes said.

Staying busy over the last week in Las Vegas, NV and Oakland, CA, Will Wes is working at a furious pace to earn the attention and admiration of Hip-Hop fans worldwide.

“We got a whole bunch of unreleased music and right now we are just working on making the right sound. Once we get enough to put out a full tape,” Will Wes said. “I might be in New York, I might be in New Orleans. Right now I’m in go mode in Vegas a couple of photo shoots and some video shoots, like I said I’m never in once place.”

With the help of his label W.A.E., an acronym for We All Eat, his team is hoping that they have just enough to push Will Wes over the top to stardom.

“If I just keep doing what I’m doing, I just gotta stay consistent, stay in they faces. I got some new videos and new music that are getting ready to drop very, very soon. I’m pretty much an open book, follow the movement and keep expecting big steps from. Me I’m here to be around, I’m trying to be everywhere, its about that longevity.
