  • Rolling Up Loud Fest 2: San Antonio's Rising 4/20 Fest

    Small festivals come and go, but consistency is key. Consistency is also synonymous perfect to describe the work ethic of San Antonio's Loud City Society. Owned and operated by Aurora Ramirez, AKA DJ Ayye R, the city has another rising powerhouse on the hip hop scene. They came back this year with their 2nd installment of their 420 friendly festival, and it came back better than ever. From the music, to the vendors, the whole scene was one to remember. The people were friendly (hopefully because you shouldn't be angry smoking herb) and the DJ was on point. The lineup was filled with talent from all over Texas. The stage lights hitting the artists face while the smoke machine flooded the room made the performances stand out even more. With San Antonio powerhouses like Stilo Jordan and Toshiyo Ghoul killing the stage, to Austin/St.Croix's Khilla Keys, every artist left their all on the stage to a cheering crowd. Don't believe us? We recorded it. Check it out down below

Throughout the project, you get many different types of moods, which shows the extent of his pen game.

  • Levvel Media Brings Out The City With Hip Hop Hall Of Fame

    Levvel Media, owned by music manager and entrepreneur Mahlon White, is one of the hidden gems in the city when it comes to events. All of their events are well organized and promoted. With their Hip Hop Hall of Fame showcase, they recently brought out some of the hottest artists in Central Texas to Empire Control Room downtown. From the red carpet entrance, to the artist selection, the event definitely wasn't one you wanted to miss. The lineup was absolutely full of star power. Every performance had their unique sound mastered, nobody sounded the same. Artists like rap duo Tribe Mafia brought out a live band to accompany their already high energy tracks. While other artists like rap duo Global Chaos brought out smooth dance moves over their versatile styles of music. A standout artist to us was ProjectBabyJV. His control over the crowd was absolutely impeccable as he fed off of their energy his whole performance. With radio ready music, he hit the stage with the energy of a superstar. One of the best things about the show was the facts that it was packed from start to finish. People were there to have a good time and enjoy good music, not just to watch their friends and leave. This was the 2nd installment to the Hip Hop Hall Of Fame showcase series. Can't wait to see what the next one has in store.
