A few snaps, melodic vocals, and a snare drum is all the artist David Townsend needs to create a vibe. Guided by his smooth vocal tone and melodic flow of which he uses to navigate the beat. Also guiding is his senses and experiences that account for tempo changes and musical bridges. In the track "One Night" David Townsend alludes to being the "bad guy" that is at fault for turning a good girl bad. He jumps in and out of the track similar to merging in and out of traffic. Something that takes a lot of skill of which David Townsend's vocal performance proves that he's an experienced driver. And to his woman's satisfaction, she is in good hands. Of which he knows and says "That still can't nobody else do it better". What's also most entertaining about the track is that it's ever-changing. It starts with a quick up-tempo feel but then at the end slows down to more of a cruising speed. A more slowed down vibe where David Townsend concentrates more on an ad-libbed freestyle that expresses his feelings more than any structure or rhythmic pattern could. This is the meaning of "One Night".

Making the upload of Blue Magic his first piece of music that is his solely. The second win for St. Domonick is that he came back with fire! So many times artists take a break and almost disappoint their fanbase with some weird experimentation like Nas's album for instance. But this East Coast born MC makes sure to represent his brand on a track that is filled with scenes from Denzel Washington's "American Gangster". Which was a biopic about the drug kingpin Frank Lucas. In this track St. Domonick is using this as a metaphor for the verses that are as addictive and are as pure as the blue substance that helped Frank Lucas amass millions and have the respect of his people and his peers.

The Mingo Trail is comprised of two segments that run through Tulsa. It's on this trail that you'll see real nature. The trees vast and tall run along the trail. The wild life birds, squirrels, and pitbulls that have gotten loose. And then theirs the junkiez. Their trails of of broken glass bottles and syringes litter the ground as they lay unresponsive from their last fix. It's best to just not fuck with them. Adam The God is doing just this with the release of his latest video "I Can't FW Junkiez".
Paige Howard. A movie that was written and shot by the Oklahoma City team Daily Devotion became more than just a movie. The Christmas Eve premiere was shown in a local theater room in Oklahoma City. And by the end of the movie it was clear that more was on the line than awards and accolades. There are still real life consequences. Consequently it was when you really stopped and looked around the room that you noticed the people who were genuinely happy to see each other, and genuinely proud of the team of people that had put so much into a project. As the movie ended and the applause from the audience began, it was nothing but love that filled the theater room. This was an important moment in time. This same feeling is most felt on the Paige Howard Soundtrack that became more than just a soundtrack. It became a celebration of the bridge that was built between Oklahoma City and Tulsa, the perfect "Love Affair".
Lookin like legacy, she lookin like phedamines,

What A Time To Be Alive! No time more than now has artists and celebrities lives been on display. This can be attributed to some of our favorite social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and SnapChat. Here's a quick history lesson of how we got here: Wayyyy back in the day before social media existed there were only newspapers and magazines that gave you a small glimpse into what really was only what the artists wanted you to see. Then there came TV shows like MTV and BET that showed you a glimpse even more into artists and gave you an idea of artist's mannerisms and personas as approved by their publicists and PR team. But the problem with both of these methods is that it often took a while for news to break because only after being funneled by program directors and show schedules. That's all changed with the introduction of social media. Celebrities and artists are now beamed to millions of screens and with the push of a button anything from pictures, to words, to videos can be shared instantly. And if you know anything about the internet then you know that once somethings on the internet then it's there forever. Ask Kevin Hart.
Throughout music it's taken more than words to pack stadiums. Simply words is not enough. It takes something more. Something that moves you. Something that sweeps across the nation. And that has people of all ages talking. I'm talking about feeling. That Feeling as sang by James Brown and other great R&B vocalists expressed the feelings of the people. And it would be these people that would spend their hard earned money to relive the first time they heard some of the most iconic voices and vocal performances. Chris Richardsson is an artist looking to become a great and his latest single "Feel Good" is step in the right direction.
Life's a Progression! And no other artist has pushed this more than vidographer, traveler, fashion designer, and entrepreneur King Spencer. From his humble beginnings of shooting his own videos, to now becoming one of the most sought out videographers, King Spencer has done it his way. And has become his own boss in the process. It's his hustle and his drive that keep people watching to the very end of his videos for his signature tag. Progression on me. Progression on 3.
Cold. Icy. No Feelings. Or simply FROZEN. It's hard to feel the feeling when there is none. The point being that your heart and all feelings are numb is and the only expression is no expression. But somehow the feeling of no feeling can still be felt in music. Whether it be Omarion's "Ice Box" or Kanye West's "Heartless", the feeling in the songs are the same even if the name of the song is different the. And as LonelyBands explains it. How are you to feel when your feelins are FROZEN?
