    Independent Everything: LIVE with M2M/SMG Rap Artist ~ Ladii Blayze

    in Music

    Born March 29,1990 to Cheryl Denise Wynn and Robert Kenneth Wynn, Sr.,  Brittni C. Wynn, better known by Blayze or Ladii Blayze, has always had a passion for music even as a small child.  Interested in all different types of music from Hip-Hop to Country and R&B/Soul to Rock. Her favorite artists are 2pac, Mary J Blige, August Alsina, K Michelle, Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Kem, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryant, Paramore, and Evanescence…  just to name a few. Major inspirations are artists such as Mary J Blige, K Michelle, and August Alsina, because she can relate to all of these artists in certain ways.  Always putting God first and family second, her most important goal to her is becoming successful and to be able to take care of her family.  Brittni’s parents split and divorced when she was only 12 years old. This hit her in the hardest way and she turned to music as an outlet. Watching the struggle of her mother being a single parent and having to support four kids on her own, Brittni got her first job at the age of 16. Her mother is her main inspiration, along with her father and siblings, as well as her niece and four nephews. In 2012, at the young age of 22, Brittni became legally blind. This journey has not been easy for her, however she is determined to make it for her family. 


    In 2013, Ladii Blayze released her first EP, under Metal 2 Music Records. She continues to work hard and put out music and is planning to release “I Am Blayze,” the album, in March 2015.  She is an MTV.com/VH1 artist.  Currently you can find her music being played on Spotify, Beats Music, iTunes, SoundCloud, YouTube, Rdio and all of the other fine digital download and streaming sites. 


    From emotional to the mental to the inspirational, I don’t stop. I don’t break. I prosper. I soar and Fly high. For…I AM BLAYZE.

    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.

    Independent Everything: LIVE with Rap/Hip-Hop Hybrid Sensation ~ Struc Supreme

    in Music

    Struc Supreme is a powerhouse.


    This Atlanta native is a hybrid of rap, hip-hop, and alternative music. All songs by this recording artist are of superb production, flow, wordplay, lyrical content, and tracks. Forged from the same Atlanta metal as homegrown legends Outkast andT.I., Struc Supreme's sound embraces all that the Dirty South is known for but with lyrics that cut a little deeper. Struc Supreme's genre-crossing influences are evident in his sound. It is very refreshing to hear an artist that is innovative and true to their art. He exudes truth and integrity. Talent and marketability has landed him national attention as of lately. You can hear the soul of Bobby Blue Bland in the flow of Struc's arrangements. And not letting up on the bounce, he brings the groove and over-the-top brashness of Bobby Brown. Most of Struc Supreme’s songs are like street anthems. Struc Supreme lays down beats that are almost sing-song, but lays lyrics over them that are bulletproof in their intensity.

    Independent Everything: LIVE with the CEO of Testimonial Muzik ~ Kwesi Jones

    in Music

    A testimony of a life that was once filled with mishaps, problems, and a road to destruction. Now comes with the promises of encouragement, leadership, and dedication has created Kwesi Jones.


                    Kwesi Jones was born in Chester, South Carolina on June 2, 1980 and raised in Salisbury, North Carolina, where this ambitious young man became a writer. Kwesi use to sit back and watch his step-brother complete his dream of being an artist and that sparked a flame in him to do better and produce a passion that at the age of 5 he didn’t even know he had. His step-brother became his inspiration, the love of music began and the flow of lyrics were transformed. 


                    Kwesi always had favor over his life and never understood why. He hadn’t realize the calling that God had placed on his life. He was in and out of jail, walked away from being a father to his oldest son and suffered at being a dad to his only daughter because he made decisions in his life that made him unhappy. It took his daughter sitting with him in church one Sunday to look him in his face and tell him that his wrongs in life had affected her. That became his eye opener.


                    November 4, 2012, Kwesi made the decision to accept Christ as his Lord and Saviour. With this acceptance his music changed, his lyrics changed, and he decided to be the voice of struggling fathers and those who are struggling with their relationship with Christ.


                    Through his rapping he is producing a message not of false hope but of everyday Christian living and sacrifice. Kwesi Jones is making an impact on why what you go through can get you through.
