“What really inspired the song was really the lost of the great Nipsey Hussle. I was going to LA prior to his death, but when he passed that following day I knew I had express about it in a song somehow. I’m from the east coast but brought that vibe and mixed it with the west-side. I like bounce in my music and this was the right record for it. I still went to LA because I had to pay homage to a man who influenced the culture of hip hop.
I was born in Philly, crazy because i’m not your average Philly person I got a different sound and you can hear it in my music. I have 4 brothers and 1 sister. I lived in Philly for majority of my life until my best friend got killed due to senseless gun violence, that shook me up and still does today, but its one of the main reasons I started creating music. My moms moved us out to the suburbs and I have to say I see life from both side of the spectrum. Growing up in a church household was a big influence as well, that where I get my style mainly from, you feel me? The soulful, but assertiveness is me on every track you can hear it. I been through so much in life but the only thing is I chose to keep going through any situation. My style is very unique. I like a lot of bounce in my songs mixed with feeling, and that’s what I believe makes me stand out from other artists.” – Philly Artist, Siiire
Philly hype, DYL, drops a new visual as we “patiently,” wait for his debut album, Crypto Rich.
The video pays tribute to his 2016 song “50 Racks”, which was his last release before taking time off from music to focus on cryptocurrency and Bitcoin trading.
Here’s what Dyl had to say about this video:
“When I made the song 50 Racks, it was when I first began to realize I needed more money to take my music career to the next level. 50 Racks racks is about needing to get a bag and invest in myself. It is really the song that came before I got into cryptocurrency so naturally, it lead to my album, Crypto Rich.” – DYL

The future of modern Hip-Hop warfare is hidden in the schematics of past revolutionary architects. While nothing is what it appears and there is nothing new under the sun, the deepest visions come from the perceived blind, not the sighted vulture, reaching past known consciousness while planting important seeds for the future.
North Philly’s Stoneface returns heavily armed for warfare with his handcrafted “LIQUIDHOLLOWPOINTZ”. These liquid-audio projectiles fly with aim and purpose over a thick layer of Stoneface produced jungle-drums and mob-like piano riffs.
When speaking about “LIQUIDHOLLOWPOINTZ”, Stoneface stated, “It’s time for me to take aim at groupie opportunists who are ruining the culture. These type of vultures can be very dangerous because they will cross all loyalties and boundaries for their perceived slice of fame. These hollow-points are intended to erase those heathens.”
A lot of artists have 100 plus songs under their belt and still wonder why they haven’t got “on” yet.
So until you know that you’ve found your sound as an artist, don’t try to knock out as many songs as you can in one studio session. Find one record (at a time) that you love, and perfect it. It only takes one hit. ?
Brand yourself. Find ways to separate yourself from the rest. Have a personality that doesn’t distract from your music, but rather compliments it, and ultimately attracts more fans.
Ms. Cardi B is a prime example! People fell in love with Cardi’s unfiltered persona on TV and social media, and when people started to listen to her music, they were pleasantly surprised. Not only that, once Cardi started gaining some heavy clout, she NEVER changed — and people love her even more for that!
And what about Blac Youngsta?
His Instagram videos are beyond hilarious, and even if we don’t get what he’s talking about half the time, he makes us laugh, and we continue to go back to his Insta for more. Best believe, when he drops any posts about his music, that we’re here for that too!
#WordToTheWise is brand yourself as an ARTIST, your music and image goes hand and hand.

Philly artist and FreeNation affiliate, MAINE THE $AINT, drops off a cold new piece with his new project, Humble Beginnings.
“The project was inspired by companies like Apple or Google that both originated garages, I really wanted to create an ode to the “Small Start”. Putting together this project involved me writing from a perspective that would resonate with any artist trying to build from a ground level. After this, fans can expect a collaboration album coming form my FREENATION camp.” – Maine
