Infinito 2017 - Evil Ones - @beatsrymesblog (prod by Mixx Massacre)

Evil Ones don't want to see you prosper, that's why you must destroy evil with something that's useful. Its okay to create conscious music and have a positive message, when its all said and done Quality in Quantity is about giving the world something good to hold on to for years to come! 

album - Quality in Quantity on Joe Left Hand Records (a label that makes Jealous Ones Envious "Fat Joe") 


From the soul of many men send this to the people
Can't hear straight we allowed what happened only once
On the hunt for something great take what we need
Feed the children save they soul from the grasp
Pass the message through the grape vine
Marvin tried to tell you mental illness is the condition
Will not sale out won't assimilate take the cat
Save the soul from her foul thoughts ruthless behavior
Read this page take the people to a new state free em all
Let them know it's more out here than one killing another
So for the life of me we contribute this dedication
For the love not for fame success is fan based
Never asked to be liked people decide good or bad
Sending kids back to the lab but no return

Kym Hamilton @beatsrymesblog #dancehall #reggae #artist #jamaica

It's taken nearly two years but Kym Hamilton, the artist formerly known as Gaza Kim is ready to add her refreshing sound to the Reggae/ Dancehall Industry. By the time she'd been "discovered" by Vybz Kartel as a teenager, Kym had already had some success in televised talent Competitions in Jamaica like the famed Digicel Rising Stars, Tastees Talent Search and Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall. Before that she'd tasted local success winning medals as a member of her School Choir.
In 2008 she was introduced to Kartel who opined at the time – "Kim has the ability to go very very far in the music business". To this end he signed her to a management deal with his then fledgeling Gaza Empire and promptly gave her the stage name Gaza Kim.
'Teenage Pregnancy', ' Amen', 'Bills' (also Ft: Lisa Hype), and a remake of Shabba Ranks' 'Twice My Age' with her then mentor, Kartel and 'I Love You' served to consolidate her promise as a hit maker. Unfortunately, the union was dissolved after an incident involving members of the Gaza entourage and Kim and her brother left the singer hospitalized and seeking to sever all ties with the "Empire". "Sometimes I try to avoid that name", Revealed Kym in an interview in England, "But it's the name that got me into the music business."
She then approached Bounty Killer – an artist renowned for recognizing and nurturing young talent -at a nightclub in Kingston. The artist who was already aware of Kim directed her to his in-house Producer and engineer, Austin 'Kevin' Green of Payday Music. The Grammy Award-winning producer who incidentally shared a birthday with her received her with open arms. With that she would become an affiliate of Bounty Killer's Alliance organization and released tracks like 'Haffi Come Back', 'Bubble', 'When We're Apart', 'Whine Pon It', 'Hush and 'Got To Go Right Now'. "Right now I just see myself as Kym Hamilton – some people call me Alliance Kym. When I go to certain places and I'm expecting them to call me 'Kym Hamilton' or 'Alliance Kym' – they're sticking with the 'Gaza Kim' and…. I don't know….. Right now I'm just going for the fans! – If you want to call me Gaza Kim you call me Gaza Kim! If you want to call me Alliance Kym – you call me Alliance Kym – I am one person and I will answer!
I guess I'll just have to accept it because it's the birth name."
In August 2011 Kym was nominated for the Best International Female Artist Award at the British Reggae Awards with two of her sheroes – Tanya Stephens and Queen Ifrica. Just to be nominated with those ladies alone after the long journey she'd had to reach there felt like a win in itself! So regardless of the outcome you can rest assured that Kym will still be smiling.

KALANO @beatsrymesblog @KalanoDRula Jamaican artist

Growing up in the streets of Kingston 13, Jamaica, Jermaine Anderson also known as 'Kalano' could always envision his future as a leader & visionary in and of music. His earliest association with music started about the age of seven while being around his uncle Earl Turner (known to many as Biggy) one of dancehall’s  hottest fashion designers. At that time Biggy was designing for the likes of Shabba Ranks, Buju banton, Pinchers, and other pioneers of the nineties who all had a influence on his career decision. 
1997 Mona High School in St.  Andrew,  Jamaica,  was where he really discovered how powerful his words were. Kalano would be found on the school grounds with friends ‘toasting’ and beating on the class desks to create various rhythms attracting students sometimes even teachers to stop and take listen. These moments in time were contributing factors that helped to mould the type of artiste that Kalano would grow to become. His career started as a rapper as he and his friends Chillz, Avalanch & G.Cash  joined and formed the group Fo5ifth(Who is today still the biggest and best rap group in Jamaica). At the time the group was working with super producer the late and much respected Daniel‘Blaxx’Lewis who was responsible for some of dancehalls biggest hits. After high school Kalano decided to explore the dancehall aspect of his talent, having  his fans identify with his real, unbiased and undeniable wit. The other members of Fo5ifth were in agreement with Kalano’s transition.
Kalano continued to work closely with good friend and producer extra-ordinaire, Dre-Day and continued to perform where ever he went while consistently pulling crowds intrigued to listen. He went on to work with a few known names and labels in the business and patiently awaiting the right opportunity to have his music reach the people of the dancehall in Jamaica and throughout the diaspora.  This daunting task was managed seemingly effortlessly by Kalano as he maintained his cool lyrical swag nurtured from his rapping days fused with the edgy, raw sting that is dancehall music. His unorthodox style of expressing dancehall culture caught the eyes ears and minds of many with songs such as “Zion Train” & “Angels” which were produced by ‘Columbian’.
  Kalano's music exemplifies the struggles and triumphs of the Jamaican man. His music seeks to renew the vision and focus for today’s youth who have lost hope and direction, it reaches out to those who are seeking new avenues of motivation & upliftment.
Currently Kalano' has renewed his focus and is now set on establishing himself as a household name by not only strengthening his current fan base but also expanding it towards a wider audience.

XO - The Color Grey (Mixtape) @beatsrymesblog hip hop

Grey is not a color that gets much attention. But that’s not how Diamond District’s gritty lyricist Uptown XO sees it. For the DC spitter, grey represents the convergence of two worlds: dark and light. On the anticipated mixtape The Color Grey, XO continues to combine the street and the conscious in a way that’s honest and relevant to today.
The tape, almost entirely produced byAB The Pro, is sonically consistent. Wether a tune about bittersweet summer nights, the popular “Good Vibes,” or a gutter track examining the injustice of the modern prison system, the fantastic “Petey Greene,” the songs knock. The drums crack and the bass lines rumble. Lyrically XO shines, often taking the mood of the music and fleshing it out into a coherent and persuasive song. Few MC’s could so effortlessly spit lines so explicitly political and seconds later detail servin’ in a manner so precise, you know it’s from experience. Hood with a purpose, gutter but not nihilistic, Uptown XO complicates what ground an MC can cover.

Like its namesake, XO’s tape creates something new out of opposites. Fans who prefer thought-provoking music instead of tunes to tune out to, The Color Grey is where it’s at. This is just an appetizer. The full course meal, Colour De Grey, will be served later this winter on Mello Music Group.

@alison_carney - "Hey There" @beatsrymesblog #soul #video

Produced by RoddyRod, "Hey There" remains one of the more soulful songs off the electro-charged concept album. Director JaBen Early put this video together with the help of cinematographer Ryan Richmond at the Hunted House in Washington, DC. The concept of the video is PARTY PARTY PARTY, but in an Alison Carney kind of way. That means there will be beautiful people, a comfortable setting, and LOTS of smiles. Traversing different social scenes and experiences we see Alison for who she truly is: a fun & flirty woman that can enjoy herself in a room full of people or by herself taking in simple beauty. DC is FULL of Tastemakers and Socialites so we thought we'd include a few to join in the fun (special thanks to Spinser Tracy, Akil Waite, Cheeky Sasso, DJ 2Tone Jones, Jayne Kennedi, Terrence Cunningham, Eugene Smith (of DC Life Magazine), RapperSK, , Billy Bradshaw (of PrepsterPunk), Tara Papanicolas (Stylist & Model), Bill Johnson (Designer), Kaira Johnson ( of Unapologetic)...just to name a few...and an extra special thanks to the band)
