"Music Is"

What People are Saying
All of the artist have a list of credentials behind their name. Take a look at what people are saying about our artists
Kalae All Day: “While the commercial music industry constricts its listeners to soul-less fun, intoxicating them into escapis--at best--like a weak tre' bag, Kalae supplies fun, lyricism, ideas and her genuine character which automatically clues her listeners in to feeling good about themselves.” –Beyond Race Magazine “Love child of Jimi Hendrix and Lauryn Hill, emcee/singer/songwriter and self proclaimed “vandal,” Kalae “All Day” is swiftly making an impression in the underground Hip Hop scene. At the ripe age of 21, the Harlem native has done over 30 shows at popular city venues, such as Sputnik, The Knitting Factory, Public Assembly, Highline Ballroom, SouthPaw and Ashford and Simpsons Sugar Bar, and has opened up for rappers Jean Grae and Talib Kweli (Idle Warship) all since the summer of 2008”- BrooklynBodega.com

Kalil Kash
“…Kash’s vocal style is conversational and thoughtful, with lyrical depth, a solid voice and an ongoing verbal smirk throughout” “…Kalil Kash represents good music. Not caught up in representation of any particulars as apart of their marketing scheme, good, quality music is the focus, but time changes things and the possibility of different outlooks of that representation can occur. With the logic of “art imitating life”, Kash relishes in the opportunity to enlighten, especially since he has special feelings towards new artists.”- Profanity Magazine

Top$Raz
“[Raz is] easily one of the more interesting and provocative unsigned artists in hip-hop today. Raz doesn’t just write from the perspective of having nothing and wanting it all, he imagines himself as the protagonist (or antagonist) in a variety of scenarios and tells stories. –http://rapreviews.com"Rapreviews.com “Hardcore slick talk, real rap skills + substance. There’s really no denying the kid”

Likwuid (Of Rebel Star)
Electrifying, magnificent, revolutionary, are all powerful words used to describe power in motion; Likwuid Stylez. A Hip Hop artist, entrepreneur, and activist, Faybeo’n LaShanna Aja Mickens, mostly known by friends and fellow music makers as “Likwuid”or “Likwuid Stylez”, has made a commitment to use her gift of song and supreme lyricism, to change the negative portrayal of women in the entertainment industry. Born and raised in the suburbs of Columbia, South Carolina, Likwuid has always been a member of positive change in her community. An accomplished athlete and honor student, Likwuid swept through the state performing on various stages and speaking to young people about the importance of education and self-love.

With a stage show and lyrical presence that commands praise from even the most seasoned hip-hop head; Likwuid pushes the boundaries of music. There is no music production or group in which she is a member of that is anything less than supreme. With regards to her innate God given talent Likwuid humbly states,” I dream when I rhyme and I strive to create snippets of heaven when I perform- everything is boundless. Freedom is what I breath and elevation is what I aspire to capture with every show.”

Upon moving to New York City, Likwuid immediately immersed herself into NYC’s independent music hip hop scene. She holds the distinction of becoming the 2nd woman to win NYC’s legendary EOW Emcee Challenge, and her notoriety as a Jump-Off TV Battle Winner propelled her career to the next level in the underground NYC hip-hop circuit, then to nationwide buzz, then to international stages. While touring in Asia, Likwuid landed a feature on MTV Asia, H20 on Demand and a headlining spot on the Chivas NY Music Hip Hop Tour. Likwuid soon joined forces with fellow musicians Baxter Wordsworth and Raydar Ellis to establish the group Rebel Starr creating the NeoQuantumRetroMusic sound that would land the group on tour with artist such as Talib Kweli, Bow Wow, Lyfe Jennings and in publications such as URB.com, Rap Fanatic Magazine, as well as a brief stint on MTV’s TRL. Rebel Starr was even featured on the big screen within MTV’s film catalog in the national released movie “Noah’s Arc: Jumping the Broom”, with their single “Back Again.”

Likwuid is also a member of the all female music conglomerate GNU (along with AtLas’ and Kween Kash). The group’s eclectic sound has landed this trio of talented women performances throughout east coast college campuses and a slot on Brooklyn Bodega’s Shown N Prove (presented by CMJ and YUME). With all of her multiple endeavors, Likwuid’s heart is embedded in her passion for the art of hip hop. “When she raps, you can hear her love for the music in her voice,” says nationally syndicated radio personality Charlemagne the God (Stupid Dope Moves), “Likwuid let’s her mind and soul, not her body, dictate her destiny.”

In addition to her musical endeavors in New York City, she spends her Saturdays teaching Hip Hop Writing techniques to high school visual artists at the Cooper Union Saturday Arts Program. She has also conducted seminars at BAM and various Youth Conferences and High Schools.

In 2006, along with childhood friend, Lynnette Doby, and new found comrade, Nadia Dale, Likwuid decided to form a company with the aim of empowering women by promoting progressive ideas and images for women of color. “For women to attain the respect that we deserve, we must celebrate our champions. “Misogyny is another plague that, unfortunately, has poisoned our society, our minds, and our music. Instead of talking about the problem, we at Royalty Media Group provide the “Queendom” (http://www.royaltymedia.net/) to offer a solution. This website is about getting our voices heard and celebrating our champions as business minded and artistic spirits,” says Likwuid as she describes the growing company website known as a hub for fashion, music and the arts.

Likwuid has received countless awards and recognition for her music to include DiscMakers/Taxi Top Artist in the Southeast (IMWS) award, the Power 94.3 Freestyle Battle Champion, Charleston Idol Award, and numerous showcase winnings. She has been featured in BK Magazine, WACH 57, Hot 103.9, Rise Up Radio, Rago Magazine and online mediums that are too numerous to name. Her words and experiences have been published in the powerful book Girl Drive which highlights women Nationwide on what drives them to succeed. (Nona Willis-Aronowitz and Emma Bernstein)

Currently Likwuid is blessing her fans with a highly anticipated EP entitled “Gummi Bears and Champagne,” which is slated for a March 2010 release. Dedicated devotees of true hip-hop will be invited to partake in a fantastical, lyrical voyage with Likwuid as the captain, and guest appearances by the following producers; Midi Marc, Ced L Young, DJ Bless, and Raydar Ellis. This project is a follow-up to the 2005 release, Southern Belle, which distributed 5,000 units’ including online and physical copies.

As Likwuid continues to grow and touch more people her brand will begin to morph and transcend. Stay tuned…

Mic Blaque

Mic Blaque bases his artistry as an artist, song writer, and producer, by using his art to help listeners understand that the status quo is not always the norm. He brings you into a world where most artists wouldn’t dare. The world of expression he brings has no boundaries, where being an individual would not be placed as an outcast for its pure honesty. In addition, Mic Blaque has been an advocate of his community working with SanKofa empowerment, which is an organization which provides individuals with culturally relevant and socially practical educational experiences that empower them to assume leadership roles to address issues prevalent in urban communities. Mic has assisted teaching a music class that was based around helping the youth to develop skills to use their talents to promote change. Through "Sankofa Empowerment", Mic Blaque has done work with Nate Parker from the movie Great Debaters on a project to help raise money for an African centered community based Saturday school. Plus he has shared the stage with Abiodun Oyewole of the legendary "Last Poets". For most it is just entertainment, but for Mic Blaque it is more.
Musically Mic Blaque has worked with Roofus Blaq on various projects of artists such as: Trey Songz, Jamie Foxx, and Faith Evans.
