SupaNova Slom’s New ‘Love In The Midst of Chaos’ Album

SupaNova Slom released his first studio album in four years, “Love In The Midst of Chaos,” on the date of his birth, this passed January 29th. It is the ninth studio album that the rapper has released.

Slom’s recent project is a combination of genres: He categorizes it as Trap, Rock, Punk, Alternative, R&B, Soul, and says it is, “…unapologetically me.”

The Brooklyn-born and raised emcee credits Michael Jackson and Prince as his biggest musical influences growing up, but says Prince inspired him to sing as well as learn to play the guitar and piano, while honing his craft as a lyricist, since the age of 10. At the same time, his older cousin, Entrfied [@thegodofsound], exposed Slom to recording and performing, live.

Slom’s music production team, Ra Sound, consists of Chief Producer, Entrfied McCloud, Associate Producer, Rod Heru, and Executive Producer/Vocalist, SupaNova Slom.

Prior to the current project, Ra Sound independently launched eight Alternative Rap albums over the span of nearly two decades.  Slom’s musical catalog boasts of features from Erykah Badu, The Game, Jadakiss, Bilal, Ludachris, TI, Jay Electronica, Ice T, Dead Prez and Theopolus Londod, to name a few.

“Love In The Midst of Chaos” was 10 years in the making with creative input by mentor and music industry vet, Ali “S” aka @anoblesavage.

In 2009, Slom and his team shot their Prince-inspired music video, “Midnight,” at his Brooklyn flat to assess his audience’s response to Slom’s musical range. Entrfied and he strategically placed the song on their then album – “The Remedy.” The response Slom received from his listeners was a mixture of excitement and curiosity for what was next, he recounts.

In 2011, prior to Slom going into active duty military service, Ali convinced he and Entrfied to focus and create a cohesive SupaNova project and Prince-inspired sound, with alternative rock influences. Thus, their journey began, and they worked periodically until Prince’s untimely passing 2016.

“This totally shook us because we were sure Prince would absolutely love the album – and us – when we were through with it,” Slom says.

The group went on hiatus to dig deeper and channel their creativity around the memory of the late, Prince of Pop. Encouraged by Ali, they recorded over the next few years to form “Love in The Midst of Chaos” – an album which promises if nothing else, a sonic boom of diversity!

From the booming synth Trap-Hop melody of the title track “Love In The Midst of Chaos” – to the soul-silky, Prince-like falsetto vocals of “Breathe” – to the Electro-Punk Rock pulse of “Love Thump” and “Revolution” – think, Nine Inch Nails and Bad Brains; and to the Bone Thugs N Harmony and Migos-like cadence of “Psalms: God Love Gangstas” boasts SupaNova’s most ambitious work – to – date. Additional contemporary inspiration for the project came from artists Fishbone, The Weeknd, Drake, and Kanye West.

Mostly known as a Hip-Hop artist, after the “Chaos…” Slom will be known as a SupaNova rockstar!

“Love in the Midst of Chaos” is available now on all digital streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, iTunes, Amazon and GooglePlay via this Link.

Young Thug Says He’s the Most Hated and Richest in Atlanta

@MzHanaG

Atlanta rapper, Young Thug, has been an ongoing target of homophobic accusations for years. Apparently, he felt the need to respond, and did via social media:

It is I Jeffery

The one that get the most hate

and they say gay

but is also the richest

in the A

#youngthug got a message for y’all.

A video posted by DJ Akademiks (@akadmiks) on

It isn’t clear what precipitated Thugga’s public declaration, but rumors that he is gay have been circulating since he said that he prefers wearing women’s jeans to men’s (among other things), in an interview.

The “Pick Up The Phone” artist is and has been in a relationship with Jerrika Karlae, but not everyone can walk and chew gum at the same time, apparently.

In other news, The Tour Part 2 mixtape (sequel to Rich Gang’s part 1 mixtape) is due for release, “…Whenever we say go,” according to Birdman. “Me and Thug got a solid 10-12 [songs] that we really like. Part two gon’ be me and him,” continued Birdman in a recent appearance on WAV Radio.

The Atlanta rapper has been staying relevant with recent features on Juvenile’s “Red Sox” record, Ralo’s posse cut “Young Nigga,” and the rumor mill.

Donald Trump + Kanye West Meet: Surprising or Nah?

121316-music-so-here-s-what-kanye-west-and-donald-trump-had-to-discuss-at-tr-1

@MzHanaG

Kanye West met with the President-elect at Trump Tower Tuesday, just after being released from the hospital. He was joined by an entourage and a cameraman.

The two emerged from their meeting smiling and posing for pics in the Tower lobby. Trump told journalists the two are longtime friends and that ‘Ye is a “good man.”

The rapper took to Instagram following the meeting, stating that he met with The Donald to discuss “multicultural issues.”

At the rapper’s last show in California, which he abruptly ended, he said, “I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump.”

The news of the rapper’s support for Trump is met by disdain from the hip hop community amid proposals presented by Trump to infringe on the civil rights of “minority” groups in the US, although it’s fairly obvious that even those who voted for him are discouraged by a Trump presidency.

Just Last year, the Wests showed support for Hillary Clinton.

One would think that being $50-something million in debt and facing divorce might keep the “Gold Digger” rapper occupied, but that’s not the case.

Speaking of debt, Kanye is known for his elaborate purchases: in 2013, he and his wife moved into an $8.5 million home. Then, they purchased a $15.6 million mansion in California. They’ve also bought property in New York and Paris.

‘Ye attempted to launch a women’s clothing line in 2011 that never quite made it to stores. French designer, Jean Touitou, claimed the attempt cost ‘Ye $23 million.

The Mayback cost ‘Ye $150,000. Kim’s engagement ring was $3.5 million, a golden skull gift to former friend, Jay Z, cost him $26,000, and he bought a diamond tiara for his daughter.

Both Yeezy and The Donald have filing for bankruptcy in common. ‘Ye expressed concern about Chicago, and so it would seem the two have even more in common, as they take care of their own, purportedly. We’ll see how this acquaintance plays out, following the upcoming electoral votes.

 

 

 

 

Yeezy Rails on Jay Z at Concert Over Some Bulls***

jaykanyerift

@mzhanag

Kanye West aired out his “Watch The Throne” cohort Wednesday night, at a Washington concert.

If you follow Ye’s concert life, you already know that he has no problem interrupting or cancelling his shows for various reasons. Last night, he took to the stage to dish on his estranged friend for not visiting him following Kim Kardashian West’s Paris robbery incident, and the ongoing feud between Apple and Tidal streaming services, which Yeezy claims led to the removal of his verse from Drake’s Views track, “Pop Style.”

“There will never be a Watch the Throne 2,” West announced referencing he and Jay Z’s 2011 joint album. “That’s the reason I wasn’t on this song. I wasn’t on the song ’cause of Hov; ’cause of some TIDAL/Apple bulls**t. And that s**t be getting me tight every time I perform this motherf**ker.”

 

 

Jay Z hasn’t responded to the rant, yet.

Snyp Life Releases “Without You” Ft. Emanny and Sheek Louch on iTunes

Snyp Life Releases Single “Without You” on iTunes Featuring Emanny and Sheek Louch off Debut EP “Back Again.”

Snyp Lyfe’s long anticipated solo EP “Back Again” will be available for download on iTunes and all major downloading portals on November 4th, 2016. Until then, Snyp teases listeners with a sneak peek of what’s to come with his second single.

“‘Without You’ was motivated by real life relationships,” says Snyp, “and the general perspective of men in the business with women at home.”

Snyp made his premier appearance back in 2009 with the No Security EP, featuring his D Block affiliates.

Snyp, who was raised in Yonkers, said of the The Lox and DMX: “I grew up with them rapping in hundreds of cyphas in our neighborhood as a kid.” He credits them, as well as the distinct boom-bap sound of ’90s Hip Hop as his major influences.

The D Block affiliate’s EP title is an ode to his experiences: “Despite this being my very first real project, the countless mixtapes and albums I’ve been a part of makes me feel like I’ve been here before… So I’m Back Again – like it’s my first time in the game.”

The forthcoming EP will include features by Tyler Woods and Dice Pain (of D Block), and tracks by producers Pete Rock and Psycho Les.

Next to producing music, Snyp has been active in the Autism community since the birth of his son, who has the disorder. Snyp speaks regularly at Autism functions to help spread awareness and prevention of the condition. He also participates in the annual “Autism Speaks” walk, which kicks off every April at different locations around New York City.

There is more to Snyp than meets the eye. He says: “I don’t want to be categorized as a rapper. I’m an artist. I want to paint pictures with my words and make you rewind my music to experience the scenes again.”

Listen to the world premiere of Snyp Life Ft. Emanny & Sheek Louch’s “Without You” by Ebro Darden on @AppleMusic: https://itunes.apple.com/us/post/idsa.7e17bc40-8c17-11e6-a297-f56931cb69f0

Lil Wayne Doesn’t Believe in Racism, Says White Police Officer Saved His Life

 

lil-wayne-july-august-xxl-magazine-scans7

@MzHanaG

Lil Wayne has caused quite an uproar in the black community concerning his claims of having never dealt with racism. But Wayne remains unrelenting in his opinions, and in a recent interview with the Associated Press, the NOLA native re-affirmed that he has never experienced racism. Said the “Sucker For Pain” rapper:

“It’s the world out there. It’s not a certain part or a certain kind, or a certain culture – or whatever of people. It’s people – those people out there in that crowd,” he told the AP. “I’m blessed to have that opportunity. So with that said, I can only be honest with such a thing, I have never witnessed racism.”

To further illustrate his point, Lil Wayne recounted an incident that occurred when he was 12; he shot himself in the chest and a white police officer who came to his rescue.

“My life was saved by a white man. I don’t know what racism is.” Wayne said. “I know a good [expletive] named Uncle Bob. He was white as snow. Them (expletive) that hopped over me, were blacker than me.”

Wayne said “Uncle Bob” rushed the Young Money boss to the hospital where he stayed until he heard Weezy would pull through.

The experience appears to have established for Lil Wayne, that goodwill isn’t about race. The event has squelched any possibility in his mind that the totality of a people behave the same way.

Future’s Tweets About Ciara Not Libelous, Judge Rules

future-ciara

@MzHanaG

Emerging results in the ongoing legal battle between Ciara and Future reveal that a judged is not seeing eye to eye with the singer.

On the the question of whether or not Hendrix’s tweets about his ex were enough to damage Ciara’s career – the judge at least – has said that they have not.

This win for Future is just one spoke in the bike wheel of their overall legal battle concerning baby Future Zahir Wilburn. The “Promise” songstress will have to return to the drawing board to win her $15 million defamation lawsuit against the father of her son.

Among the tweets Hendrix published is: “This bitch got control problems.” Despite the definition of the word “libel,” the judge has disagreed that Ciara’s professional reputation has been compromised by Future’s social media outburst.

It’s possible that Future’s tweets were eclipsed by an interview he did with Rollingstone last June, in which the “Dirty Sprite” rapper had this to say about his ex:

“Her being successful, her being happy, helps me,” he said. “I’m attached to you. If you’re happy, I’m happy. You’re connected for life. I don’t want you to go through this shit and for it to come back on my son, my kid. I want you to be in the best situation.”
