    Independent Everything: LIVE with Finest Music Ent. Rapper/Producer ~ Saint

    in Music

    This rapper/producer with tremendous talent has taken his love and desire for music to another lyrical level. He’s like no other, the style, the name; the man himself cannot be duplicated, something spectacular to offer.


    His raps are crisp and to the point, he's a monster on the stage, and in the studio his creative nature invades his music, it can't get more precise than that. His versatility is proven in the many songs in which he has produced and written. His rap style can be straight hardcore rap and then switch to a commercial, laid-back flow. So let's take it back...


    Born July 17,1985 in Denver Colorado, Christopher Mitchell, now known as Saint, would grow up to find himself trying to understand the craziness of the world. “I follow my own mind and I've alway thought so deep.” And so it began, Saint put in his time blessing the mic. Saint emerged in late 2003, collaborating and performing alongside Colorado Legend BBlacc and Dankside ENT. He has carried his talent from state to state, venue to venue as he has worked hard to express his unique personality through his brand of Finest Music. Faced with many trials and tribulations in both, his personal life and music career, have molded him into the musician he is today. Saint has always had an ear for good music, rhymes and hooks. He says, “At first I didn't know I had it in me. The magic of music brought the real trueness out of me.” In time he developed his own style and writing skills. Influenced by the hard-edged beats and southern gangster-rap of No Limit Records, Saint is a rare exception in the ever changing world of Hip-Hop. In a genre where new artists come and go, plagued with gimmicks and schemes, Saint manages to remain true to himself and the music he makes. Destined to be a household name, Saint possesses the musical creativity and charisma to someday become one of the greats.

    Independent Everything: LIVE with the Blonde Phenom ~ Brandy Li

    in Music

    Born in Chattanooga, TN, and raised by her grandmother, Brandy Li's love for music grew as she used it to escape the harsh realities inflicted by the trauma from her father and his life as an inmate on death row at a maximum security institution for murder (1 of his victims being her mother). Her passion for lyrics blossomed as she'd seek clever rhymes to say on the mic for her uncle who happened to be a successful and local DJ. She was later signed to an indie label where she wrote and recorded with several platinum artists including, Big V of the Nappy Roots and Sutta Kane of Pinney woods who has done songs with The Game, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West. She wrote her single, Pumpin Gas, while in the studio vibing with a producer in Atlanta, Kevin Freeman, aka. Big Block. They shot some video of them in the studio, took the plastic off final cut pro without knowing how to use it, then released the results on You Tube where the song/video received a lot of likes and downloads for an indie artist with no budget. The song was featured on Coast to Coast's mixtape, #NextUp vol. 24 and in Coast to Coast Magazine. Her next Single, Touch Your Butt, just dropped a few days ago in April, 2015. Brandy Li has had over 200k+ views, comments, reposts, downloads, etc. in her first week. She is slated to write with a grammy awarded producer on some industry projects while working on an album; and, is currently working on a single with another grammy nominated producer in Nashville. She is on fire! Expect Big Things From Brandy Li. #STAYTUNED
