O’reezy - "Low End Baby"


Omar Wilburn is better known as O’reezy. It’s hard to encapsulate him into one genre. He expresses himself by flowing effortlessly in and out of an array of styles. He resides in Da Wick, Florida. It looks like Florida has another hot one and he’s on fire.

He originally started doing music as a means to escape from the many trials and turmoil he was going through. Ever since he was a child music has always been a part of his family’s life. He is a byproduct of this family gift. His family heavily influenced his decision to pursue music professionally.

Another fellow artist, Tru was quoted telling him, “They can’t deny you”. He also writes his own songs. He has done shows in Florida, North Carolina, and Georgia since signing with Thorough Entertainment in 2022.

He is fiercely independent and bold. He’s found a way to please both the hip hop crowd and the smooth listening crowd with a much wider audience through his savvy sounds. He admires Tank and Musiq Soulchild. Runs and rifts flow from him like butter. He listens to a lot of Gospel and Worship music. He’s currently working on his album and the songs have a grown and sexy feel.

Tru, Lil Choew, and Lady Hustle are his labelmates. He aspires to one day win Awards for his music. He opened up for Fredo Bang in Jacksonville on April 14th. He has 2 singles out “Gifted” and “Low End Baby” which are both causing a buzz.

Thorough Entertainment’s motto is “We’re not just blessed we’re big blessed 4ever”. Brace yourself for the next up. Get ready for O’reezy.

Copywrite - "I Have Weed About To Drop" (Freestyle) (prod. by Copywrite) (Cuts by DJ Swab)

"I've always been a high tolerance smoker and I've always wanted to create my own perfect strain that did what I wish other strains could. 

Let me introduce you to my own weed strain. It's called "Copywrite78". It's been cultivated by the good folks at steel city home grown out of Canada. I told them I wanted a high power indica that is potent enough to give someone who is prescribed adderall couch lock. That's what we've got. The ultimate "get-you-dumb-high" strain that you don't really have to use too much to get blitzed- unless you like to be dumb high like me. Then roll up and let my strain work. 

I was so happy at the results of the strain (I won't  name the cross strains just yet. I don't want anyone to copy my shit just yet.) that I decided to write a love song to my new favorite strain. I produced the beat for this song also, so this is the most Copywrite song ever when you consider it's by me, produced by me and inspired by my very own strain titled, "Copywrite78". Huge shout out to my man DJ SWAB for killing the cuts on this so with no further ado; Steel City Homegrown in conjunction with the high exalted proudly present in part with Man Bites Dog Records, my love song to my own strain. 
I call it "I have weed about to drop freestyle'' is the actual title. Roll up." - Copywrite

Limited Edition 7 inch Lathe with "I have weed about to drop freestyle" on Side A & Jeah 2 on Side B - 20 copies for-- $20--- 20 - 4- 20 on Man Bites Dog Records Bandcamp.

Last week (4/18/2023), Sh8kes shared more of his personal testimony with his new loose, 
Truss One-produced single "Regrets", featuring a guest verse from New York emcee The Musalini. (of 9th Wonder's Jamala Records). Today (4/24/2023), on this final week of National Poetry Month, Sh8kes shared the song's official music video via YouTube.
"This poem came from a place of failure, pain and self awareness. I went through so many things during 2022, I began to question if what I was doing was the right thing. I never wanted to give up, but questioned if I needed to switch my focus to something else. I found myself reevaluating the people around me that have been in my life for 20 plus years. It seemed like I gave so much of me, but never got the same in return.” - Sh8kes

Baby City Club - "Ella y Yo"

Rising Puerto Rican duo Baby City Club keeps delivering the good vibes with their 2023 releases, and their new single “Ella y Yo,” out today, captures that same dynamic energy, which the group is already becoming both recognized and loved for.

Following the success of their previous two singles, “Modela Pa’ Mi” and “Watersport,” “Ella y Yo” is the next chapter in the new era that Baby City Club initiated at the beginning of the year. The song was produced by Miami native XAY, who is known for his work with some of the most influential artists in Latin music today including Bad Bunny, Ozuna, and C.Tangana, and fuses his own expansive and modern sound with the duo’s innovative musical concept. 

Bringing together the worlds of pop and dance and oozing with vibrant Latin flavor, “Ella y Yo” showcases Baby City Club’s remarkable range and far-reaching, international appeal, and is an irresistible and unforgettable offering that is sure to form a crucial role in the soundtrack that will define Summer 2023. The song is the third single to be released from the group’s upcoming album “COPAS & GLAMUR,” a project that, through its inventive and trend-setting arrangements, promises to transform the way we perceive and consume Latin music.

Formed by brothers June Summer and Augie Pink, Baby City Club is the best kept secret in the Latin scene from Miami today, and while these two creative minds maintain the qualities that led to their success with their previous band, their refreshing new artistic proposal is rejuvenating the current landscape with an elevated and delectably modern pop sound developed with urban music fans in mind.

On their latest single and video "Therapy," BlackLiq delves into his daily struggle of juggling depression and optimism, while attempting to stay connected to his art and sense of self, despite knowing he should seek professional help. His life is a contradiction and Mopes provides a soulful score that is as light and dark as the uncomfortable thoughts BlackLiq is sharing. For them this isn't music, this is self medication.

Copywrite - Want To Three For (Instrumental)

Veteran Ohio emcee & producer Copywrite, hits us with the latest instrumental "Want To Three For" off his new beat tape "Ya Garbage Kid" out now on Bandcamp via Man Bites Dog Records. Check out his thoughts on the instrumental below. 

"This beat is an ode to one of my favorite beats, groups and producers all in one. Can you guess why? You'll have to because I'm not telling. This beat has a few different parts that hype me up and a few parts that make me laugh for inside reasons. I wonder if the chic moaning will recognize her voice? Doubt it. There are plenty of beats on #YGK that I could have picked for the single to this thing but this had a lot going on and a fun but evil energy which sums me up in a nutshell. So here it is; the second single off of my debut instrumental album called "Ya Garbage Kid". I hope you have as much fun listening to it as I did making it. Of course I was on copious amounts of weed when I was making that so you have an uphill battle. At any rate, Enjoy!" - Copywrite
