If time is of the essence Detroit artist Ang is making sure to make every second count with her single "Tick Tock". The Detroit rapper dropped 3 track project called "Wanna Move" on her SoundCloud page. The nursery-like intro is fitting because this track is slept on. But it's the hard pounding 808 bass kick that really wakes up the track. The 3 part bass drop has influences of West Coast Bay Area production that can be heard in songs such as "Thotiana" and "Bounce Out With That". This makes it easy to you lose track of time which isn't long being that the track comes in at just under 3 minutes.
"You put that King up in front of my name and you gonna say it with pride."
King Spencer for mayor! Some may think this is a bold statement given his inexperience in politics. However, politics doesn't mean change. As Barak Obama put it "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." Change is what King Spencer didn't wait for. Change was what he became. Never was this more apparent than at his 6th Annual Hoop2Help AllStar Game fundraiser that happened at the Salvation Army West Mabee Boys & Girls Club.
Recently we were on the road with World Culture Music for their Tour De' Culture tour this past month. The cities included Oklahoma City as well as a Texas run of Abilene, Dallas, and Houston. The first stop was Oklahoma City at the Hubbly Bubbly Hookah & Cafe where World Culture Music opened the night with some dope performances.
I know what your thinking. "I thought this was a place for rap to be shared and explored and annotated.". To which I would say is still very true. It's been a labor of love crafting out the perfect post and recreating the exact feelings and expressions that came with hearing a song for the first time. But we are so much more than a blog site. My vision for this has never been just to be a blog site. We are also a fashion site that sales merchandising (check the About page). We also do consulting and executive producing. In the end we are a brand. A name that is distinguishable and that holds weight. And dropping music has always been the vision for the Tulsa Lines Brand.
The World's Most Interesting Man. Some would say they miss the old guy that was always dressed in suits and told tall tales. But to those that know Keeng Cut know that he we wasn't even close. Keeng Cut, artist, entrepreneur, and also most would say trend-setter. But even that would be an understatement to his influence and cultural impact. Nearly a year ago he introduced the world to Flavio Cûtore, a smooth, fly, and debonair who is polar opposite to the rapping Keeng Cut. But now with the release of Keeng Cut's latest release "Stay Flavored My Friend", Keeng Cut learned that both could co-exist on the same project and if anything else it would be fully flavor!
We are back! Your favorite podcast "Tulsa Lines Podcast" with another guest comedian\entrepreneur Demetrius "Juice" Deason. He's recently partnered with Russell Westbrook and Tyler Locket to bring to Tulsa the Why Not? comedy show that will be here July 11 at the Cain's Ballroom. We were excited to sit down with him and get the rundown on the event.
Be true to your word because your word is your bond. Your word is all you have after you take away the cars, the houses, the jewels, and the money. Most importantly your word is what you are remembered by. Some of the greatest thinkers and leaders are more remembered for their words then what they accomplished. The power of words have been known to start the bloodiest of wars, while also having the power to crown a victor without a single bullet being fired. So when it comes to music it's no wonder why artists make millions of dollars. The power of song lyrics especially in rap music has started wars as well as created social change.
In Hip Hop being an entrepreneurship is what is your foundation. Long before the Gary Vaynerchuck's came along and made entrepreneurship cool. Hip Hop was paving the way. Independent artists like Master P have told stories of selling $500,000 worth of tapes out of the back of their trunks. Something that has now been re-categorized as "Pop Up Shops". This entrepreneurial spirit has now spread across the world as many workers are finding that with stagnating incomes and rising costs of living that having a separate side hustle is no longer a nice-to-have, but a life line. It's with this new knowledge that from rappers, to actors, to everyday workers are finding ways to BOSS UP.
Sports have a crazy way of instilling core values that you might ever notice until you are truly tested. Sprinkled inbetween the 100-yard sprints and the agility drills are core life lessons. It teaches you what's your breaking point, as well that you have the ability to go further than you ever thought you could go. You learn discipline. You learn commitment. You learn brotherhood. And most of all you learn about yourself. Demetrius "Juice" Deason is an athlete who has been through thousands of drills. Ran thousands of 100-yard sprints. And has had these core values tested. All these things helped him become a star collegiate athlete. But what he didn't realize is that even after his basketball career had ended that he had been training for a completely different stage his whole life. And the spotlight couldn't be any brighter.
