Trapn Ratchet EP by Muzic King – @iAmMuzicKing


West coast rap artist Muzic King has released his highly anticipated Trapn Ratchet EP. The projects is one hundred percent Muzic King. There are no features on this five track EP. Muzic King created his own unique trap art for the album and produced all the beats. In a sense, we really understand the Trap vibe, because it was created from nothing. 

Sonically the tracks vary on the project between west-coast, ratchet, party music  and trap music, thus the title Trapn Ratchet. The music is more so high energy, uptempo rap with punch-line lyrics that tell stories and paint a vivid illustration of what Trapn Ratchet is.

His EP is doing numbers right now so you might want to go check that out also.

Tax Season Podcast


Tax Stone is  more than a podcast host. He’s a ladies man, D’usse XO cognac drinker, ex-con from Brooklyn, New York and a prominent figure in this era’s hiphop culture.  But, is someone’s criminal record, a definite indicator, on the type of person they are and they type of character they have?


Tax Stone’s  Tax Season podcast has been airing for over a year now. His numbers are through the roof, with each episode averaging thousands  of plays via Soundcloud every week, as well as a very aggressive group of online social media followers on Instagram and Twitter.


Tax Stone’s niche is simple. He’s real. He doesn’t sugar coat. He tells it like it is, or at least what his true perspective is. Often times Tax will interview a rap artist, model, stripper, celebrity’s or regular person he knows from around the way.


Tax interviewing Joe Budden

Tax Stone has a certain way about himself, he knows how to get an interesting story out of someone. He uses colloquialism, wit and street intellect to make  celebrity’s spill their guts during interviews on Tax Season.


Charlamagne Tha God – Tax Stone – Andrew Schulz

By appearance, Tax may not look like what you believe to be a journalist, but in fact he is; just as much so as Barbra Walters, Jon Stewart, Anderson Cooper or Katie Couric are journalist, so is Tax Stone.  He discusses everything from music, relationships, sex, scams, women, prison, crime, current events, celebrity gossip and more interesting topics, primarily the basis being hiphop culture. Tax has transformed and revolutionized the podcast game and positioned himself as prominent figure and voice for hiphop.

Get to know California native Jay Entendre!

What’s up Framily, it’s your boy Turn Up T!

I’m doing a spotlight interview for an up and coming artist on the rise that goes by the name Jay Entendre formerly known as The Kid Bilal.

He is a PR and Marketing wiz whose represented artists such as The Game, Wale and even R&B powerhouse singer Jill Scott. Perhaps the passion behind representing and promoting such celebrity talent is in connection with what Jay Entendre has evolved into- a rising recording artist. @JayEntendre is currently signed to the first Independent Major Record Company out of Las Vegas (The Private Plane) under 5 time Grammy Winner Malik Yusef of G.O.O.D. MUSIC. #PVTPLN

The alternative/hip hop artist started receiving notable buzz at the age of sixteen, but admits that he was not fully aware at that time of neither what his capabilities were, nor what would be in store for him. Jay Entendre highlights his first performance as an opening act at a venue in Clovis, California for a crowd of over 10,000 people. The Long Beach, California native describes his sound as music in a conscience realm infused with soul and funk that makes you think and feel serene. His alternative/hip hop vibe is a spin off west coast music, which also is a genre that Hip Hop legend Ice Cube and many others coined and helped popularize in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The talented artist(@JayEntendre) is optimistic about his future and relishes in his other gifts as a musician who plays the guitar, drums, and the keyboard. No time better than now, the Howard University graduate is ready to fully release his artistry onto a mainstream platform.

@JayEntendre is a pretty versatile guy, he’s a Poet/Musician/PR Rep, has been featured twice on MTV’s partnered website Ourstage. Known World-Wide for his international remix “She Craves Me” ft Flight Facilities under the name The Kid Bilal.

“Great track, great flow, great lyrics.” – on “She Craves Me”

He is in the works of creating his second international remix for the “The Promise” with Number 1# Billboard artist Clive Farrington of When In Rome. Jay is also currently in the studio working with Platinum selling artist MANN and producer Brandon Bell (Credits: Justin Bieber, Keyshia Cole, Busta Rhymes, Juicy J, and many more..) working on a single for his debut record, “Quality Control” (How to live) #HTL

Q&A with Jay Entendre below.

Q. What have you found to be the most difficult transitioning from a PR expert to a blossoming young artist?

I’ve been working with artists who are used to seeing me from a PR standpoint dressed in a suit and tie so it can be challenging when trying to shift the focus to artist. Therefore, I am my own representative and PR. I utilize my talents in various areas of the business, so my plan is not to be categorized in one particular aspect of it.

Q. What advice would you give to an up and coming artist diving head first into the music industry?

Learn as much as much as possible about what your expertise will be, use that as leverage to get to the next level, and remember that everyone has a strength and everyone has a weakness; learn to personify that in your team or other people. Over and above all, STAY POSITIVE!
Q. Who were your Top 5 musical influences growing up?
The Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye, Bad Brains, Tupac Shakur & Kanye West.
Q. Who do you see yourself collaborating with in the near future?
I have a track coming out with my homie MANN called Lyrical Ammunition! Be on the look out for that plus other projects. But to answer your question more in depth, I see myself collaborating more often with some great artists named Vida Mapatis, and Malik Yusef just to name a few.
Jay Entendre
Q. Planning anything huge for the summer?

Yes! The second annual Creative Soundz Music Festival! It’s my own community block party & music festival which will is annually in Fresno, California in support of at risk youth.

Q. What are some goals of yours?

A few goals of mine that I have for myself are to see my brand expand; earn at least one Grammy, and bank up some foreign dollars(Euros) for sure.

Q. It’s really awesome that you were featured on MTV, how did that opportunity come about?

I downloaded one of my songs on Ourstage and left it alone without even checking the site. Then six months later I was getting phone calls and that’s how I found out my song was number one on the website. It was great because I got a lot of publicity, but I didn’t have the exclusive rights to sell the song. However, it gave me much exposure.

Q. It was an honor interviewing with you framily, any last words before you continue to rise up and prosper? 

Lastly, I would like to thank Majestic Society/Turn Up T! for featuring me. I also would like to give a special shout out to Vida Mapatis for holding The Private Plane down in the tri-state, G.O.O.D. Music, Malik Yusef for putting us on, and last but never least; Shanise Burris for the love and great video work!
