    PQW presents: The Importance of Authenticity:

    in Radio

    For the longest time, we are often taught or led to believe that we must do whatever it takes to "fit in" or the abused interpretations of "group acceptance". This episode, we will offer a genuine platform for the people to speak on their respective experiences and even provide questions in order to remind and remember the importance of this subject is. The madness we see and experience demanded the need for this conversation to be had. The youth of today are not that much different from those their senior in this regard so all voices and persepctives are free to speak on it. Mainly for the embetterment of ourselves and our people at large.


    Per usual, the following views and opinions are unedited and can be deemed flammable to ears, hearts, minds & egos of a ‘delicate’ nature. Listener’s digression and full body flame retardant armor is strongly advised. Standard issued Pepto Bismol is available for those with moderate or severe cases of heartburn...

    To those black businesses, artists and entrepreneurs abroad, looking to get put on or advertisement; your information must be sent to platinumqueen1@gmail.com. We take care of our own here as we all must stand up and represent. Also, comments, show topics and all things pertaining are most welcomed and will possibly be read on the air. We broadcast live each Sunday at 6PM Eastern Standard Time/3PM Pacific Standard Time. See you there...

    T Pain "The Iron Way" Live Mixtape Review

    in Music

    Few people can accurately say they’ve changed the course of music; count T-Pain among that short list. His bright, polished arrangements have become the in-demand sound across genres, and his scene-stealing vocal performances are among the most coveted in music. Since bursting on the scene in 2005, T-Pain has been awarded a Grammy, produced and written a plethora of chart-topping and platinum-selling singles, garnered "Songwriter of the Year" and "Producer of the Year" honors at the BMI Urban Awards and earned a BET Award. So it should come as little surprise that the musical maestro’s tremendous, self-produced third album, THR33 RINGZ, stands as a sonic odyssey brimming with innovation.


    Indeed, T-Pain can speak from that perspective because he knows what it is like to struggle. His Tallahassee, Florida hometown was lacking music industry opportunities and connections, so the man born Faheem Najm chose the T-Pain moniker to signify his plight. He taught himself how to make music, write songs and record music. 


    T-Pain’s use of the vocoder made his music stand out, and his prolific, high-quality output turned him into one of music’s most oft-imitated and in-demand producers, singers and collaborators. His first two albums, 2006’s Rappa Ternt Sanga and 2007’s Epiphany, have been certified gold, thanks to hit singles such as “I’m N Luv (Wit A Stripper)” and “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’).” He has also collaborated with Kanye West (Good Life), Chris Brown (“Kiss Kiss”) Flo Rida (Low) Plies (Shawty) and Bow Wow (“Outta My System”) for platinum singles.
