Threi is a prodigy and a titan with years of experience under his belt recognized as one of the industry pioneers! Threi has crossed paths with some of raps most succeseful in the biz. He is best known from Ice Cube’s group The Lenchmob.
Threi was born in Southern California and raised in the ghettos of Los Angeles. He also has lived in Stockton Ca. & Phoenix, Az. This brother has laid his melodic vocal juices over instrumentals since the early days of rap. As a young rapper Threi started out in the group Hardcore with guest star Ice Cube in 1988 https://www.discogs.com/Hardcore-Hardcore/release/680144 on production along with Wax Dawg for the groups first single on South Mtn Records. He went on to the group D30ICE which performed on HBO in Rapmania.
During the N.W.A. days Ice Cube and Threi became roommates recording music and writing songs throughout Ice Cube’s school days in Phoenix at ITT Tech. Ice Cube then learned Threi was very skilled with music & clothing. With Ice Cube going solo from group NWA he made Threi part of his Lenchmob group from Phoenix,Az. and took Threi with him on several tours as an official member. Threi quickly put together some amazing clothing and secured a merchandising agreement with Mckenzie River Corp. to advertise for St. Ides beer and Ice Cube. Threi ‘s success extends beyond the world of rap as he has done merchandising for Ice Cube’s Death Certificate tour. He also helped created the movie set for “Friday”. Threi has appeared on MTV’s Rags-n-Gear so you can see he keeps a lot on his plate.

Mr. Boomboombang’s video Can’t Trust Nobody displays the essence of real hip hop! On a simple beat he is spitting truth about real life. Something everyone can relate to. That is what hip hop is about. I was impressed with his flow, ability and magnetic appeal
Magnetic appeal is what Arod Somebody Washington D.C.’s newest rap star has. The 25 year-old has caught the eyes and ears of many in a short amount of time. His debut mixtape “80 months” is a reflection of his time spent in jail and experiences he shares with the world. His music appeals to even the most discerning listeners.
Arod’s grind is never ending. He is focused, driven and has the work ethic of a seasoned industry vet! Shortly after his debut video release, he has now premiered his second video “Changed Up”. Shot in his hometown, the video shows images of Arod and describes how rising to fame changes the personality of those around him.
With support from his label Major Life Music, Arod is sure to succeed. This is merely the beginning of the work he plans on releasing to the public as an introduction to who he is as an artist.
I caught up with the super talented Niara Purkett recently and she explained about her journey in the entertainment industry. She is focused and driven and has accomplished a lot at such a young age. She has the work ethic of an industry vet.
Here is what she had to say:
Since 2003 I have been actively participating in dance lessons, theater and small productions. My dance experience has allowed me to become proficient in ballet, pointe, ballroom, hip hop and more. During the past 12 years I had the opportunity to perform for many audiences and a variety of venues, including Amateur Night at the Apollo in New York. Most recently I traveled to Atlantic City, New Jersey to dance for Chaka Khan on stage.
Within the past month I greatly enjoyed participating in “Respect My Runway” (RMR) Fashion Show. After being chosen to model in RMR I auditioned for Haute Accessory Week, September 7-10, 2016, Tampa, Florida. Being a model is a new goal and aspiration that I actively am pursuing.
Check out the official music video from rising North Carolina based hip hop recording artist Flyy Drexler titled “Came From Nothing”. Get more updates and information on Flyy Drexler at http://www.FlyyDrexler.blogspot.com
13th Floor Boys are back! They won fans over with their single last year ‘Dab” and had the most discerning listeners dancing. These young guys got the recipe for success they are focused, driven and talented! Their much anticipated mixtape is now available on Live Mix Tapes.
@13thFloorBoys3 – School Daze :: #GetItLIVE! @IndyTapes @DJSwampIzzo
R&B duo Meant2B is back at it again! After releasing the successful single “No Ring” in 2015, they flip the script with their new single “Faithful”, once again teaming up with producer Chris Cutta.
In the coming months, Meant2B will be putting the finishing touches on their new EP with platinum producer Caviar, and will be hitting the road this fall to promote the project.
But what happens when the artist manager becomes the artist!?!? We are about to find out! Artists who have experience in other parts of the industry usually have an advantage on the rest. And with over 100,000 plays on his first single he’s starting to carry his own weight. David has a video scheduled that he will shoot with his own equipment and will feature VH1 model Shyona Royston. Soon the camera may be on him.
