Posted on December 9, 2017  Leave a comment on December Artist of The Month – JudoDaRealest
Introduce yourself and tell us where you are from
What’s up world its Bryce Holmes better know as Judo aka JudoDaRealest.
How did you get started in the music business?
I started rapping back in middle school with some buddies for fun we called ourselves The Supa Click. It wasn’t until 2003 when I began to really take music seriously and 2005 was when I was all in.
What do you feel like the music scene is like for independent artists like yourself in your city
I come from a small town (Abilene, TX) that’s starting grow in population. The music scene in my city is beginning to get on the right tracks. We’ve got a lot of talent in the city and with that comes a lot of egos also.
We’re figuring it out that it’s going to take everyone collectively to really build it up so it can flourish and I believe we’re moving in the right direction.
For those who havent heard your music how would you describe it?
For those who’ve never heard my music I would describe it as universal. I make music for everybody because I feel like music is so important and impactful that’s its on the artists that create it to continue to be influential and push this culture forward.
What is the current single(s) that you are pushing and where can people find it?
My current single “Drinking” feat. Freysh Prince is out now on all digital platforms and recently debut on We Blazin Hip Hop Radio and mainstream radio on 96Q. (ITunes, Apple Music, Deezer, Tidal, Google Play, Amazon Music)
What goals do you want to achive with in the next year?
My goal next year is getting more music to radio and pushing my career further whether I do independently or signing with a label. I want to make this my full time job.
How did you come up with the name judodarealest?
I got the name Judo from a freestyle session back in school. I remember saying “I’m so fly im out of this world headed to Pluto/ Everytime im on the mic I kick verses call me Judo” and that name just kind of stuck with me.
I began noticing there were other artist with the name Judo so I changed it to JudoDaRealest.
What is one thing people dont know about you that you would like for them to know?
People don’t know that even though I primarily make rap and hip hop music I write and produce a lot of r&b music as well.
What is something that is a must have when you are recording?
When I’m recording a good vibe is a must. My writing process other things are involved like drinks etc. but strictly recording I’ve got to have a vibe goin or the recording won’t come out right. To me recording is capturing a moment and without a vibe its very difficult to capture that moment.
What is one thing that you can do without?
One thing I can’t do without is my family.
If you had to select an artist you wanted to work with who would it be and why?
Wale! His passion is like no other. I feel like he doesn’t get the credit that he deserves and I come from that realm. I’ve done a lot over the years and it seems to get looked over but that makes me work twice as hard as everyone else.
What is something that you want people to take away from when listening to your music?
I give game in almost every record I do. I want people to listen to what im saying because I try and make it a point to give some kind of knowledge everytime I open my mouth.
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years with your music career?
In the next 5 years I see myself writing and producing music not only for myself but for other artists as well. I want to give back and help the younger talent in my city discover their voice and genius.
Where can people find you at on social media?

Do you have any shout outs?
I wanna shout out my family that’s always supporting me with my music. My kids (Kaiden & Brooklyn) they are my motivation to go hard every single day. My partner in crime and producer in all of this Alvin Warren (@alvindrumz on IG & Twitter.) Big shout out to Jamie Merrill for giving me the opportunity to get my music heard on wider scale. Most importantly to all the fans that really support my music and my career because without them giving me honest feedback I wouldn’t have made it to this point. Also shout out you guys over at We Blazin Hip Hop for the interview and showing me love…Salute to you guys!

September Artist Of The Month – Emcee N.I.C.E.

Posted on September 5, 2017September 5, 2017  Leave a comment on September Artist Of The Month – Emcee N.I.C.E.

I am actually glad that I came across this artist. WBHH maybe known for We Blazin Hip Hop (and R&B) but there is so much more than secular music. Add in the growing Christian/Gospel Hip Hop artists that are popping up wanting to help spread the word around about Jesus Christ.  For the month of September I present to you ladies and gentlemen Emcee N.I.C.E.

 

Introduce yourself and tell us where you are from?

I am Emcee N.I.C.E. a Multi-Platinum producer/songwriter, Oscar associated by way of “Crash”, Actor co-star of the 3D animated 3D series on Netflix and Comcast/Xfinity called “Da Jammies” hailing from El Paso, Texas.

How did you get started in the music business?

I started out doing gospel hip-hop, but at the time it was being shunned by the church and was considered something at the time they didn’t want to embrace. So I ended up joining an R&B Hip-Hop group called “KansasCali”, we were RKelly & Jay Z before they were lol.. We busted on to the scene as producers when we produced 2 Pac’s acoustic version of “Thugz Mansion” that featured NAS and from there as group we landed on the soundtrack of the motion picture “Crash” that won the Oscar for Best Film, then we landed on 5 others most notable “Mr. & Mrs. Smith (International Soundtrack). I would go on to participate on over 30+ records that includes some TV shows, theme song for the NBA and more.

What do you feel like the music scene is like for independent artists like yourself in your city?

The music scene in El Paso is thriving big time, Khalid (who’s from El Paso) just won Best New Artist at the VMA’s and is almost certain to win Best New Artist at the 2018 Grammys. Then you have Evander Griiim who just did records with Gucci Man, Lil Yatchy and more… Then there is Elia Esparza that I feature on my new Gospel Hip-Hop album, she was on The Voice Season 11 on Adam Levine’s team. You also have some other starting shine like Raphael Leraux and Mr. Southwest Prince Hawkins shoutout to Loza.

For those who havent heard your music how would you describe it?

My music is Gospel | Gospel Hip-Hop | Christian Rap with a sound that reminds you of a 2 Pac meets Fat Joe (it must be the Puerto Rican in me) mixed with some R&B melodies.

What is the current single(s) that you are pushing and where can people find it?

The current singles I am pushing is “I Got Angels” produced by Sam Peezy the sub bass monsta from Alabama! The song “I Got Angels” (inspired by Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Legend Richard Smallwood’s “Angels”) speaks on the many Angels that watch over us to keep us out of harm’s way, even though every day, the devil tries to sabotage everything you do and “On Your Way Up”featuring Elia Esparza (El Paso’s Latin Sensation from Adam Levine’s team on “The Voice” season 11). With the aid of scripture and soulful tones, the song speaks on God’s love and how he delivers us from daily adversaries and the evil the devil conjures in our lives.

What goals do you want to achieve with in the next year? 
Next year I am just hoping to make an impact on lives through my music, for those that believe in God and or having trouble with their walk, I am here to remind them that no one is perfect and that we all have flaws. So if my music saves a life or inspires a life then I would have achieved the ultimate success.

How did you come up with the name Emcee N.I.C.E?

My name explanation is fairly simple but complex when you let it sit with you, I started out as MC N.I.C.E. but then needed to modernize and as I was coming up in school I would join writing competitions and my teachers would all call me “Young Novelist” so it stuck with me and I just called myself “Novelist”.  So I became Novelist during my days of being in a group but then I returned to Emcee N.I.C.E. when I embarked on my solo mission. The name breaks down like this… Emcee – Is just what it stands for, I am a lyricist first that deliver words that need no sensors.  Now N.I.C.E. means N= Novelist I=Is C=Constantly E=Evolving, everyday I evolve. As I was coming up in school I would join writing competitions and my teachers would call me “Young Novelist” so it stuck with me and I just called myself “Novelist” all while I was in the group and now that I am whole new adventure in music

What is one thing people don’t know about you that you would like for them to know?

I am a real Author lol I have a book out called “50 Shades of L.O.V.E. – (Learning Our Various Emotions)” by Aulsondro “Novelist” Hamilton.

What is something that is a must have when you are recording?

When I am recording a must is a Venti Soy Green Tea Latte from Starbucks along with a Classic Coffee Cake. It’s something about that combination that puts me in the mindset to get it in.

What is one thing that you can do without?
I could do without negative people, at the end of the day we all are already fighting to be relevant to ourselves without other piling on. My quote to people I come across is real simple, “for any great achievement someone has to be the first to do it, why not you?” Let the negative be who they are and know that it’s not meant for you. Jeremiah 29:11

If you had to select an artist you wanted to work with who would it be and why?

In the future, I think it would love to do a collab, with Jay Z just because he’s a living legend, (how many players would love to play with MJ23?) Sade (arguably one of the greatest voices ever), Beyonce (The greatest female entertainer ever and her melodies are insane) and Redman (the Metaphor King!) all on one joint! That would be a crazy! Oh and one with Melanie Fiona & Dave East the future oh R&B Hip-Hop).

What is something that you want people to take away from when listening to your music?

GOD! Straight up, we all go through challenges in life and that there are other people going through some of those things too and have the same questions.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years with your music career?

I am not psychic lol but what I would like have established is many lives save and or motivated into action by my music. I would also hope that my music would inspire writers of music to engage a new mindset that allows them to be even more creative with the writing and not reliant upon words that allows them to be sensored. There is the freedom of expression but the powers that be have set rules in place that limits that expression, but if you are clever with your rhyme stylin’ and word play you can still tell your story.

1. Where are you located?

My influence to get into music was a list of people like Ghetto Boyz, Ice- T, N.W.A, Gang Star, Slick Rick, K.R.S 1, Special Ed, D Nice, Public Enemy, Paris and many more. They all had a different approach in delivering powerful messages as the voices of the ghetto.

I like for people to get some type of food for thought out of my music. Something that they can feel and relate to depending on the topic of the music.
6. What was the motivation behind the single Ms.?
The motivation behind the single “Ms” was I realized that I needed a song that was different then any other Exotic dancer club song with a different approach being a Florida artist. So I wanted to make THE SONG to represent for the women who is making money in the Adult Entertainment Industry and all of their loyal fans. A lot of great people supported me with the “Ms” music video which is on YouTube. Louie Dee (The son of “Joey Dee” Of “The Star Lighters”), Alex Vincent A.K.A “Andy” From the movie “Child’s Play” Co Directed with video filmer Stephen Brevig, Project Pat, Karlie Redd and Heavyweight Boxer Ernest “Zeus” Mazyck is showing off his hand work in the “Ms” music video.
7. What is one thing that you can not do without when going into the studio?
One thing that I can’t do without when I go to the studio is something to write with to catch the creativity as it builds in the studio.
8. What  is one thing that you like to do that from people looking at you would not think you did?
One thing that I like to do that other people would not think I did is drink White Zen when everybody else is pullin’ out the Henn, Gin and Vodka.
9. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years with your music career?
 In the next five years I see my music career is going to build into something unique as an artist and a Label.
10. What can we expect from Uzi Dre in the future?
 You can expect the “Smell Like Money” album to be dropping this week so keep a look out for that. It’s a little diary taking the listener to my world that caused a lot of adversity. The EP “Relapse”  along with a couple of singles with featuring artist like my O.G Project Pat. Also more music videos.
