ABC2 Foundation A Better Chance A Better Community

 

A Better Chance A Better Community (ABC2) was founded in 2012 by Mr. Chester Williams to “empower young people by providing a life skills program that promotes positive values, healthy habits, and education through community development, culture, and awareness– resulting in real life power, World Changers as Game Changers”

The World Changers Program is a network of youth working collectively for positive community change.

In the seven years since its founding, A Better Chance, A Better Community(ABC2) has played a major role in the positive transformation of the Roanoke Valley from an area with too many unproductive, unsupervised kids with too much time to get into trouble to one providing young people with a valuable structured program which focuses on community development, youth engagement and fun.

ABC2’s signature program, The World Changers, is for young people ages 10 – 24 of various academic levels, demographics, and living in Halifax, Warren, Nash, Edgecombe, Wilson and Northampton Counties. Areas which suffers from health disparities and disproportionate systems of care & resources.

Some of the World Changers’ first projects were community garden plots at farmers market, state youth trainings, and launching a Summer Fitness Program for Teens. The young people drives the passion and mission of ABC2’s work.

Donate to the our World Changers program because the youth needs support and access to resources to Change The World One Community At A Time!

Chicago’s Own Mobbed Up Records Is Pulling Out All The Stops Introducing Their Power-Player DJ M80!

One of Hip Hops hidden gems Dj M80 from Rochester, New York, is a lyrical and talented producer. His name was granted M80 in partial from his fully blooded Italian aunt (Angie Maurigi) as she always said: “This kid has Moxy,” an italian slang word for “bold.” A further description of his name is relevant to his calm demeanor as “explosive” at the push of a button. DJ M-80 developed his mix-tapecreativity in the basement of his home. This became his domain for producing exclusive beats with nothing more than the best eight-track tapes. As his curiosity for music grew he was recruited into a local rap group, where he wrote rhymes and produced beats.

He began promoting teen club events, at the age of 13, where he had his first performance, giving him a better understanding of the music and entertainment industry. He continues to reinvent his sound, never following trends and always pushing the envelope creatively. DJ M80 lives by the words, “As an artist, you’re not hungry until your starving”. These humble words are hard to come by as an artist. M80 is raw and authentic which gained him his first big-industry work credit in 2009, as the producer and dj for Hip-Hop artist: G. Dep (Bad Boy Entertainment). Since then his career has sky rocketed, producing, engineering, dj’ing, and even rapping with an elongated list of industry artists, and many recognized artists from his hometown. His charisma is unmatched. He is currently an in house producer, engineer and dj for Trife (Wu-Tang Clan/ Theodore unit), and a key artist to the new Chicago based record label Mobbed Up Records, presided by Gino Gallela and notorious members of the Chicago Outfit. Mobbed Up Inc is the parent company of Mobbed Up Records a powehouse Chicago company with many businesses under their umbrella.

Abiona is a breath of fresh air to the music industry

With Donald Trump in office, powerful men in entertainment and media sexually abusing innocent women and children, and with all the violence, hate, destruction, death and disease in the world, the last thing you want to do in your spare time is to listen to music from artists that disturb your spirit, and plant seeds of more negative thoughts into your mind.  If you want to escape the tragedies of the world today then you need to listen to reggae soul singer Abiona.  Abiona’s music is a breath of fresh air, and a beautiful, thirst quenching oasis in the middle of a desert, and that desert being the chaos and madness the world is filled with today.

Abiona’s positive, inspirational and uplifting chants will make you forget all about the tragedies going on around you and bring cheer and joyfulness to your heart and soul.  Abiona’s latest singles are “So Many Things”, and the triumphant, motivational “Number 1”.  Listen to the singles at the direct links below

Listen to Abiona, the cure for the madness and negativity in the world.

 

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing San Francisco Bay area artist Jonah Melvon. You can expect to see Jonah explode on the scene nationwide. He is a socially conscious  lyricist which is a breath of fresh air to today’s  urban music scene.

How long have you been doing what you’re doing and how did you get started in the first place?

I released my first record in 2009. I didn’t really tap into music til my college years. I was def a late bloomer. I started unlocking my voice at open mics which lead to demo recordings. I denied my passion to do music because my household and my city had set the bar so high.

Who were the first influences on your music and style?

Subconsciously I absorbed so many of the artists my parents were listening to, from Sade to Frankie Beverly. Eventually that transcended to EPMD, Rakim, LL Cool J, and 2Pac.

In your opinion who is the most influential and successful artist in your genre today and why?

These questions are always tricky, because  success can be equated to finances or the feeling of the record. If it’s the feeling of the record, though my genre of artists singing and rhyming is quite small; I would say Anderson Paak.

What aspect of the music making process excites you most, and what aspect discourages you the most?

Finding my melodies and lyrics the right home excites me the most, or sitting down and writing something new to some dope music production. The process that discourages me the most, is having convictions in an industry that is moving target.

In your experience thus far, what is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed?

The best advice I was given that I actually followed, was to give up some of my roles. There was a time that I wore way to many hats, which made me a “jack of all trades, but a master of nothing”. Giving up some of these roles, allowed my career to blossom, but I had to outsource the other foundational things I needed as an artists

And one you didn’t follow, but now know for sure that you should have?

Taking care of my media platforms is one piece of advice I didn’t follow, which I wish I did. I’m changing however. Also making sure I handled my paperwork, which can get real tedious but worth it.

Which ingredient do you think is most essential in making your sound and style the way it is?

Being a great listener. Having an open mind.

What single are you currently pushing and what will you be dropping next?

The singles from my new record #RainWaterProject are “What’s Good for You”, “1099”, and “Thinkin of You”. I will be focused on the branding of these songs for 2019, especially with being an indie artists and having limited budgets, it will take time to push these songs.

What can fans expect from you in the future and where can they stay up to date on your movement?

All my branding and music is under my name @JonahMelvon. I am really dialing into the recording aspect to release more music in the next 2 or 3 years. I got lost in the performance aspect for so long which I love, but I am determined to give more recordings for fans to vibe to.

“Truth Syrum” by Nikia a message for the cheaters!

Singer / songwriter Nikia has a strong message for the cheaters out there, and she makes that message loud and clear with the lyrics of her new single “Truth Syrum” featuring Wo-Billz.  Nikia speaks for many of the women out there who have been in relationships where all the signs add up that they are creeping and cheating behind their woman’s back.  Nikia sings exactly what so many people who have experienced being in unfaithful relationships have been wanting to say, and the rap verse by hip hop artist Wo-Billz drives the point home even harder.  Listen to the single and watch the video for yourself  below on youtube.

Get to know artist “Real Ova Deceit”

 

How long have you been doing what you’re doing and how did you get started in the first place?

Ive been making music for a lil over 7 years now. I started making music because music is a big part of my culture. A friend of mine bought a mic and self taught himself how to engineer. I jumped on the mic and instantly fell in love with the ability to create.

Who were the first influences on your music and style?

My first influences were Outkast, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and many more.

In your opinion who is the most influential and successful artist in your genre today and why?

Lil Wayne, I feel he has the best body of work.

What aspect of the music making process excites you most, and what aspect discourages you the most?

The writing and recording process excites me. What discourages me is not being able to do what I want vibes wise.

In your experience thus far, what is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed? And one you didn’t follow, but now know for sure that you should have?

To be consistent is best advice and to practice.

Which ingredient do you think is most essential in making your sound and style the way it is?

My lyrics and melodys.

What single are you currently pushing and what will you be dropping next?

Im currently pushing my single “Champagne” and the music video will be dropping Friday at 6pm.

What can fans expect from you in the future and where can they stay up to date on your movement?

Fans can exspect me to be doing more live shows. I’ll be putting out new music every month.You can stay up to date at:
