This music Game we live in can either break you or make you. REAL TALK! Some People come and go in this Game without ever being notice or appreciated.

Rick Ross just finished another chart topping year 2011. REAL TALK! I’m talking Clubs, Radio and the Hoods from coast to coast were rocking Rozay daily REAL HEAVY. Peeps need to appreciate Ross’s work ethic and the quality of the work he’s been able to put out for the masses to enjoy.
Ross has been in high demand on the feature side; killing it alongside his own MMG crew, with R&B artists or his peers in the game looking to get a Rozay assisted sure shot banger. Ross’s business ventures also looked real good, his MMG Brand played a big part in carving a name for some of his artist from the camp who along side Rozay killed the R&B/HIP HOP charts. His presence was definitely felt in the year 2011.
Not even two back-to-back seizures suffered while touring could stop this man’s drive to achieve and overpower the game. His hard work and dedication to his craft have not gone unnoticed, The Source Magazine named Rick Ross Man Of The Year 2011 for the 2nd time. A title well deserved to the BIGGEST BOSS in the game this far.
Be on the look out for Ross’s 5th solo LP called “God Forgives I Don’t” due out this year. Until then peep my DJ Blaze Rick Ross Takeover set on my mixtapes section, MMG is the Movement!
Busta Rhymes first got his start with the group Leaders Of The New School back in 1989, but his coming of age to the game came in 1992 as one of the members of LONS to be featured on A Tribe Called Quest’s posse cut “Scenario”. Busta took the track and laced a verse so hard and memorable that till this day, still stands has a hit record for the ages. That record got so many spins that Busta’s name started to ring bells in the Hip Hop game and his career has a solo artist took of from that point on.
Busta is a rare breed of an MC; and as a seasoned vet in the game his style is unique and animated like no other. Whether he’s a feature on an R&B/DANCE/HIP HOP tracks, Busta will always deliver a scorching verse. REAL TALK! He has so many hit records under his belt that his stocks in the game just keep on raising. Busta is simply a BEAST on the mic, the kind of MC that’s in no rush to bow down any time soon. Peep my DJ Blaze/Busta Rhymes Takeover set on my mixtapes section, It’s BANGIN!!
There’s a lot of male R&B artists in the game claiming to being the best out right now, granted some artists have the drive and the momentum to claim that feeling right now, but REAL TALK you can‘t spell R&B without the R meaning Mr. R. Kelly, the dude from Chi Town that’s been killing the airwaves since his debut in 1989.
Kell’s is an R&B singer-songwriter, arranger, performer, music video director and record producer. REAL TALK! The man is known for crafting some crazy hits and I’m not talking just on the R&B tip, with the help of some of the Heavy Hitters in the rap game Kell’s was able to create a new lane in the game of Hip Hop/R&B and by doing so he raised the bar up and changed the whole concept of how Hip Hop/R&B should be received and appreciated.
Till this day Kell’s is still the Head Of State of the Hip Hop/R&B game REAL TALK! All the new artists coming out right now should stop throwing rocks at the Throne and instead take a page from Kell’s music book and learn what it takes to stay and still be relevant in this game. REAL TALK! Check out my DJ Blaze/R.Kelly takeover set on my mixtapes section, its TIMELESS!!
To all my Blazinone.com fans that follows Jay-Z and enjoy his music like I do, you all need to do yourselves a favor and cop that Decoded book. I’ve been a huge fan of Jay’s and I’m talking before he blew up to the rest of the world.
I always though I knew everything there was to know about Jay but after reading this book I felt like Jay gave us a more personnel look inside his brilliant mind and take on life has he sees it. In this book Jay brings us back to where it all begin, he gives us a vivid picture of what it was like growing up in Bed-Stuy Marcy projects and the sources of his inspiration. We as fans get to see Jay as the artist who then becomes the great entrepreneur/businessman we have grown to admirer.
The depth of his rapping skills alone shook me, and I’m one who listens to Jay daily, but being able to read how he dissected some of his favorite tracks was a treat I couldn’t believe I was receiving. The man is a genius and I enjoyed reading every part of the book from the start to the end. REAL TALK!! Peeps shouldn’t sleep on this book cause it’s a sure shot collectible.
I’ve been watching the moves that Rick Ross has made since his first appearance back in 2006, and I gotta say that this dude is serious. Homey hasn’t stop since he step foot in the game. The self proclaimed Boss of MIAMI and Hip Hop’s heavy weight, is finally coming to his own and creating his own lane that can’t go unnoticed by his peers. REAL TALK! Ross has had countless hits blaring out in the clubs and on the radio, whether its him on his own or as a feature on R&B tracks, Ross comes in hard and delivers nothing less then hot topping chart tracks. The drive that Ross has displayed through out the year 2010 will definitely carry over to the New Year 2011 to come. Check out my DJ Blaze/Rick Ross takeover set and see what I’m talking about!
It’s been quite a journey for my man Trey Songz, ever since he jump on the opportunity to open for Jay-Z in late 2009, Trey’s life movement have been nothing but positive. He’s swag has been on some next level shit, he’s been dropping hits after hits and all of them have been chart-topping tracks for the clubs and for the radio. He’s also been quite the guest feature on many heavy hitters A list like Diddy, Rick Ross, T.I., Fat Joe and Drake just to name a few. The man is killing the airwaves right now; this year has definitely been his best music wise. I expect nothing less from him for the New Year 2011. Keep doing ya thang Trey.
