    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

    Independent Everything: LIVE with 80's Female Funk Band ~ KLYMAXX

    in Music

    The R&B all female funk band KLYMAXX is KLYMAXXTIC! Still going strong their music is a staple on the radio and in dance clubs around the world. Belting out hits like, “The Men All Pause” and “Meeting in the Ladies Room” the group’s name is synonymous with classic women’s anthems. Their beautiful ballad, “I Miss You”, was Billboard Magazine’s #3 song of 1986 and still to this day is played when love is in the air. Much of the group’s success can be credited to Cheryl Cooley, Cofounder and original member. She has personally nurtured the group’s unique sound by overseeing the infusion of 80’s funk with a modern swag. Her enthusiasm and vision have transformed KLYMAXX into a leaner meaner entity producing live music that delivers dynamic vocals and uncompromised grooves. These ladies are serious about entertaining their fans and continuing with the KLYMAXX legacy.

    Independent Everything: LIVE with CME/M2M/SMG Artist ~ Young Soul

    in Music

    Was sup, I am Jimmie “Young Soul” Webster. I am 1/2 of the group Bad Guy Gang (BGG). I was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama. I have 3 brothers and 4 sisters. I got into music to release frustration and anger. I had found out that I could sing when I was at school goofing off making fun of somebody. My favorite genre of music is music with soul in it, such as R&B and Gospel. Nobody inspired me to do music when I realized I can sing I just start doing it I know I can dance but my music is poetry so what better thing can I do. Living in the city I live it its more bad things than the good things so I set out to make something positive about me, the group, and my city. I feel the modern day music now a day is fake unreal not touching like the music back in day it’s just a hustle the artists now a days are putting up a front instead of being who they really are. My dream collab would be August Alsina, but I would feature with anybody. My message in music is everybody does not have the same story, it’s kind of alike but it’s not the same, everybody have a song but it is how you sing your song. In five years, I'm trying to have five albums with the group, have our name more than what it is, have music that the elderly and the young people can listen to together and it speaks to both, and I would like the venture off and do a few solo projects.

    Independent Everything: LIVE with Up & Coming Hot New Artist ~ "AP"

    in Music


    I'm Ashley Powell aka AP. I'm 22 years old. I'm from New York but I live in Fairhope AL with my mom and dad. I'm the baby out of 5 kids. I have 5 nieces and nephews. The reason why I wanted to be in the music industry is because of my grandfather and my bestfriend. Music is just a part of my life and my soul... I say I can't live without it. Music takes me to another place... it helps me escape. When I'm writing my lyrics, I'm not just writing words, I'm leaving a part of myself in each song. Most of the rappers and artists that are putting songs out are lacking heart, soul, and emotions. My music is different. I'm putting everything I have in the songs to make sure everybody can feel where I am coming from. My music also tells the story of my life and my emotions.

    What's good.


    I'm Devon "BGG YUNG FALLEN ANGEL" Patton. I am from Mobile, Al. I was born to Rhonda and Tyrone Patton. I have 3 brothers and 1 sister. I got into the rap game cause of how the new generation flows to this new whack style of lyricists. I was influenced to start rapping because I sought a change in what I listen to and hear across the airwaves. "Now a days most rappers talk about the same thing. The game is in need of a hero not a zero, so I became the face of the new hero," he says.


    Yung F A attributes his love for music to his father and feels that he really doesn't have a favorite genre of music, because he likes it all. His influences are God, my family, nephews, girlfriend, and the fans that support him. 


    Yung F A is signed to the Metal 2 Music Records/SMG label. He is the CEO of sub-label Closet Music Entertainment (CME) and also is one-half of Bad Guy Gang. Yung FA is an entreprenuer and a hard working businessman.


    You can catch Yung F A every Friday at 7:00pmCST, hosting CME TV on the Ustream network, discussing all things music industry related. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cme-tv1
