KINGWEEZY has not only the Dallas,Tx music seen in awww, but is even getting the attention of successful Underground Rap artist such as (Houston Tx) CHALIE Boy, (Dallas ,Tx) Mr. Diabolical, Mr. Lucci, and most recently Dorrough Music, in which Kingweezy had the prestigious opportunity to open up for at the Dallas Night Club Soleil. Needless to say headlining his own events and bringing in a crowd has been the least of the New Artist concerns.. As he became a true pioneer in Dallas Tx. becoming the first artist ever to perform at the Top 40 Nightclub, (none the less) throw a Single Release Party at the infamous Club Thrive late last yr..

    Independent Everything: LIVE with the UK's R&B/Hip-Hop Sensation ~Jake Aldridge

    in Music

    27 year old Jake Aldridge was born and raised in the village of Reydon, situated in Suffolk, UK. When Jake was 11 years old, tragically his father died suddenly and unexpectedly. This life-changing event led Jake down the path of Songwriting. Despite having always struggled to deal with losing his father and role model, Jake eventually found comfort in writing his thoughts down on paper. To begin with, Jake’s notes were in the form of a diary. Until one day, he randomly started to rhyme a few of the words that he was writing and in time, his diary transformed itself into a book of poems.


    Since Jake never had much of a singing voice and was inspired by ‘Rap’ Music, his method of performing these rhymes seemed like an easy choice to make. Jake would spend hours writing his feelings down, turning them into rhymes, and then would spend even longer performing them to himself and perfecting them, dreaming of one day becoming as good as the Rappers who he was so inspired by. One night, a teenage Jake had had a little too much to drink and with this he finally found enough Dutch courage to perform some of his raps to a couple of his close friends. Once his friends had got past the initial shock of hearing their mate rap unexpectedly for the first time, they were amazed. Jakes friends were both incredibly supportive and encouraging towards his lyrics. All of a sudden, Jake’s wildest dreams now seemed like somewhat of a possibility in his own mind.


    Jake has spent the past 10 years perfecting his craft as a song writer. These days, Jake is working with producers & production companies from all around the world to create an image and sound that's unalike to any other musician.
