Multi-talented recording artist, Soul Vybe Cutta, from the the small town of Camilla, Georgia, is best known for his cleverly written storytelling.
Besides his natural passion for music, multiple hardships such as: homelessness, close family deaths, substance abuse, and depression have also inspired Cutta to channel his pain through writing and making music.
With new music soon to come, I got a chance to ask Soul Vybe Cutta a few questions.
Who is Soul Vybe Cutta!? Describe yourself as in artist in 3 words.
– “I would describe myself as: abstract, devoted, and melodic.”
We know that you’ve dealt with many personal hardships growing up, such as, substance abuse & depression — how did you use music to cope with those hardships?
– “I wrote my way out of my hardships, as if they were affirmations to remind myself that I was greater than, and never less than anything that attempted to over take my mind and life as a whole.”
With that being said, what is your goal as an artist? What message are you inevitably trying to get across to your fans?
– “My goal is to inspire those who need inspiration and to let them know that any great vision that God has placed in them is possible.”
Your military background has opened doors for you to travel the world — and on top of that, we know you now just travel for fun & for inspiration — what has been your favorite destination so far, and why?
– Europe as a whole, but if I have to choose, Im going to go with the Netherlands because of the free spirited lifestyle; their admiration for nature, and landscapes of serene scenery.”
Where’s some places you haven’t gone yet that are on your bucket list?
– “Thailand and Egypt .”
Currently you reside in Germany. Seeing that you’re originally from Camilla, Georgia — What is it like living in a place so culturally different from what you’re “use” to?
– “It’s initially a major culture shock, but once you make it past the language and cultural barriers, you begin to realize that there really isn’t a difference at the core of every new place visited.”
We like to ask everybody this one… Who are your top 5 musical inspirations? Dead or alive.
With 5 projects under your belt, which one was your favorite to work on and why?”
– “The Project that I am currently working on for later this year. I have more creative control with producing a lot of the songs on the project, and also these opportunities being the exact things I have always prayed to experience.” Now we know you got a brand new project on the way, do we get any type of exclusive preview? — Name of the project, concept, estimated release date? Or do we just have to wait and see!?
– “I have already let too much out of the goodie bag already.” What can Soul Vybe Cutta fans (and perspective fans) look forward to from you in 2019!?
So there you go! A rising artist who’s just trying to make way to his fans through his music and personal revelations. Check out the exclusive releases below, and stay tuned for Vyber Musiq Vol.1 on the way!

Rising R&B star, Miala, delivers a very unique and creative visual for her hit single, “FNF.”
We get a glimpse into the posh universe that Miala calls home, all in the mist of being touch by her sultry vocals and majestic rhymes.
Whether down on earth, or in space, Miala refuses to deal with any type of f*ck n*gga, and with that we get a new anthem to remind us ladies of what we deserve when it comes to love.
Watch the official animated video for #FNF below, and listen to more music from Miala via SoundCloud.
Let’s get to know Miss Miala…
Who is Miala? Describe yourself & your artistry in 3 words.
“Miala is creative, unpredictable, and intelligent!”
You definitely have a different vibe, what inspires your individuality?
“I really just try to dig deep focus on true artistry, and creativity to deliver something beautiful when it comes to my music. It’s what I think is missing in the industry right now.”
You’re obviously not from here (earth) — how is life in outer space? By the way, we hope they make them all like you up there! [heart eyes]
“[lol!] Haha, they definitely do, did you see my alien friends in the FNF video? And what’s it like … hmmm you would have to see it to believe it :).”
What’s the inspiration behind your new hit, “FNF?”
“The inspiration was for me to be as far as possible from earth so I could be FNF, so what better place to go than outer space. And the best way to accomplish that with all the details was to animate the video. Which I’m very proud of!”
We love the concept for your animated video for #FNF — what other dope releases do you have in store for us in 2019?
I have sooo many dope visuals coming out I’m so eager to get them done to share them.
Recently, I had the pleasure to get to know rising Atlanta, Georgia artist, Chosen Fate. We’re starting to see a new wave of lyrically conscious rappers, and Chosen Fate is here to make hip-hop music his stomping ground and prove that he’s not just going to be a one hit wonder, but an artist who can hopefully inspire others to be themselves in this generation of pretentious posers.
Who is Chosen Fate…? Though it seems pretty self-explanatory, what is the meaning behind the name? “Chosen Fate is James Stephens (lol)”
As a multi talented artist, we know that playing the piano is your secret weapon… does that mean you produce your own beats too? “Yes”
Who are you top 5 musical inspirations? Dead or alive. No specific order. “Stevie Wonder, James E. Stephens (Dad), Timberland, Pretty much everything I can get my hands on.”
Now, who is one person in the game right now that you just “have” to work with, and why? “I would say I would love to work with a few people that I feel are similar to me and that would be: J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Rapsody, and Logic. These artists have all made positive songs in a way that I have found amazing.”
For those who haven’t listened to your new project, Come By Here, — what are 3 words to describe it? “Inspiring, different, and educational.”
With that being said, what was the inspiration behind creating this project? What message are you trying to get across? “Well, Come By Here, is an album from the people’s perspective meant to motivate us to do something with our lives and also to paint a picture of how we deal with one another to motivate change. And I named it “Come By Here” to inspire people to be better and to learn to love each other no matter the color of their skin.”
What is it all for? Be honest. Some people are about this “music life” for the fame and fortune, essentially trying to make a career out of it, which is understandable; but some use music solely for a release, and whatever manifests from that is just more so a blessing… —What does being a music artist mean to you? “I love music and I believe that music is a tool to use for whatever you want to use it for whether it be good or bad and I choose to use it for good.”
What’s in store for Chosen Fate? What can we look forward to from you in 2019? “I don’t know wait and see!”
After just a week off of the release of their second collaborative group project, Annuit Coeptis, I tapped in with the Cov Gov team to talk about the response from their new album, their goals for the new year, and how they each feel about working in a group dynamic.
The Album, Annuit Coeptis — Latin for “Providence favors our undertakings” — is another spiritual and social honest piece from Cov Gov proving their versatile and vital approach to rap about the topics that often get lost in translation.
Always honest and transparent with their fans… here’s what the group had to say:
Describe the album, Aunnit Coeptis, in three words…
Now with that being said, what was the inspiration behind making the, Annuit Coeptis, project the official CØV group project?
Nalo: “The collection of artists… each is great in their own lane. So to see us come together successfully is a good move for hip-hop as a whole.”
Sensei Feng Xhui: “With politics becoming more synonymous with entertainment, it was only right that [we] as musicians make more music to reflect these times.”
You guys have always meshed well as a group, while also knowing how to separate your solo careers… how difficult — or easy was it getting every member on the same page for this group project? (Studio time, Tracklist Arrangement, Choosing an album cover, etc.)
Relz: “Whenever you have a collection of solo artists/different personalities with conflicting schedules – it’ll never be easy, because things might take a little longer than expected, or you may not agree on certain things. However, it teaches you how to compromise. That’s the beauty of being on a team… taking the different opinions in the creative process & then coming on one accord to create a masterpiece.”
Sensei Feng Xhui: “OH BOY! It is heaven and hell! Always competitive! Mainly because we try to bring out the best in each other. Everybody has their own process, but no matter what the end result is always the most important part. When we disagree on details, we find common ground on the intentions. As far as the solo part, it’s easier to be free when you’re apart of a great collective.”
Young Scoop: It was fun for me to work on this project, I like the competition, but being in covenant, you do a verse one day and it’s gone the next.” – Scoop says jokingly.
Hazy: “Let’s just start off by saying – I hated the cover for the record; but everyone that listened to it likes it so far… I think the hardest part of doing group projects is that we’re in different states so scheduling is always going to be an issue with working on tracks.”
Be honest! What’s everyone’s favorite single on the album?
Relz: “So much love!”
Sensei Feng Xhui: “Spooky Times” because it has a menacing type of energy… Like a horror movie feel. Like the horror of reality.”
Young Scoop: “Sight..” telling people it’s more than what your two eyes see.” Coincidentally Hazy agrees… Hazy: Definitely “Spooky Times,” I should have been on that, right after Scoop.
I’m sure everyone is also wondering, when can we expect some new visuals from, Annuit Coeptis?
Sensei Feng Xhui: “Coming sooner or never (said sarcastically).”
Just in 3 days, the project received more than 3,000 streams via Spotify. What are y’all numbers looking like now as we officially hit one week? — Was this response more or less than what you were expecting?
Sensei Feng Xhui: “We’re quickly approaching 10k. We knew the potential of the group as soon as we came together.”
Last, but not least! What’s next for Covenant Government? What major moves can we expect from the group and its’ members in 2019?
Sensei Feng Xhui: “Young Scoop’s project is next! Then Relz! Then the rest of the squad! Y’all can expect more videos, more thoughts, more energy, more vibes, more content, and all of the above!”
Be sure to stay connected with Covenant Government as we wait for new music to come.
Follow the group via all major social media and music streaming platforms.
