Producers are usually the additive. The one who provides the artist with the proper tools to be their best selves in the booth, but what happens when the producer begins to outshine the artists. It doesn't happen often but when it does it usually comes in the form of a Timberland, Just Blaze, Dj Premier, Kanye West etc and now Metro Boomin... His name definitely precedes his work and that only happens when your work is so well produced that your name floats around until people are force to ask "Who is this person? Although I wasn't turned on to Metro immediately when I was I realized how extensive his talent is. I like this dude... and not just because of his production value. He is humble, hardworking and talented I think he's gonna be around for a while... And don't forget if he don't trust you.... haha! Good interview, Salute @StreetzisWatchin #Shade45

After my dope radio interview with the phenomenal Antonique Smith a couple weeks ago she invited me to come catch her at Sol Village at SOB's and I'm soooo glad I did. My God this woman is amazing... I got there kind of early and met up with RA ( heyyy RA :) and got a chance to go back stage to meet her before the show. She was soooo sweet and kind and even though she was getting ready she took the time to take a pic with me (ok 3 or 4 and I still didn't get it right smh) but anyhow I was thrilled to be in her presence...
The night was filled with artisty of all kinds. Issa from the Bronx, Eye of Justo aka Justo Ontarioand Reesa Renee were some of the other artists that caught my attention (check out their video next :) but when Antonique hit the stage, it lit up! From the big screen in the movie "Notorious" to Rent on Broadway this multi-talented Grammy Nominated Singer/Actress is someone you definitely need on your radar… Check out her latest release "All we have is Now" and her Grammy Nominated "Hold Up wait a minute"! she will not disappoint #thankmelater. #Supportthereal #ThaBoomShow #DjNiaBoom

Jon Conner, Vic Mensa, Jesse Williams, Jasari X, and more come together to raise money and awareness for the water crisis crippling the city of Flint Michigan. After ignoring several warnings the city's water system and pipes are now completely containment with Lead. Oh and on top of that while trying to fix the massive crisis the city is still charging it's customers for water! Wasn't until 2 days ago that the Mayor decided to stop billing residents. Are they serious? That is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard in life. Meanwhile the city still owes almost 2 million dollars in legal fees that will come from public money. Although government officials have apologized and admitted failure at all levels of administration the damage is done. Whose to say this won't happen again in any city in America at any time, It's dope these artists came together in support of a great cause. This is not just a problem for the residents of Flint its a wake up call for all of us. - NiA BooM
