M-Pak is unique, in that he is the only artist to explicitly blend humor & motivational rap in his music. This allows him to avoid the many pitfalls of motivational rap, by avoiding the more obvious lyrics & instead focusing on the punchlines.

Maleek aka M-Pak gives hope to those who aren’t sure they want to continue living. He gives them a sense of purpose & sets them on the path to success. This is not without merit, as the world needs more “M-Pacers” like Maleek.

“I’ve often wondered,” He spoke, “whether the way people react to me is different, than if I were from a different culture or a different race.” Then continued, “I hate the fact that we are all divided & there seems to be no middle ground for everyone to stand on. Through my music, I want to perpetuate in people’s minds; that we all can stand together, even when we have no similarities. We are all human after all, maybe that should amount to something.”

“I also intend to lay the foundation of a Young Artists Network; a non-profit organization, that focuses on providing education & introducing young people to the opportunities of the music industry” He added.This young artist is changing the game with his raw & original form of lyricism. He is also known for his experimentalism, which takes these songs to the next level. For those who haven’t heard him, this might be your clue to open your iPad & blast some quality music.

Popular Releases: The Type 2, The Type 3 & 410

My vision: Dreams do come true but resilience is needed

Inspiration artists: Rakim, Biggie, Tupac, McShan, Lupe Fiasco, Run DMC

Where I wanna be in 10 years?I should be wealthy

Introducing himself, Remi told us, “My name is Lor Remi, I’m a Baltimore artist, I’m 23 – my style is impeccable & I am a trendsetter. I grew up listening to old-school rappers, at the ages of 9-14; artists such as Rakim, Biggie, Tupac, Mc Shan, Lupe Fiasco, Run Dmc, etc. So, the style I have now; it’s completely me & that ties into my vision. I make songs now, only I switch up my flow, I always have something catchy, that will stick in your head, and I make sure I do that, so that years from now or even when I’m dead, it will just come to u randomly, depending on what you are going through & you will be like Oh that was fire”!

Then continued, “I just started working on newer songs, but I just released 2 mixtapes & a single as well, (Too Traumatized) June 4th & (The Type 4) June 20th & then the single (Fiesta) July 4th. The artists who inspired me were Chief Keef & Drake. They remind you of all the artists I was listening to at a young age; those were the first 2 newer age artists that I heard before anybody else.”

Talking about his plans, Remi said, “In 10 years, I should be wealthy. But, in the next 3-5 years, I should be internationally known for my music. Because, it’s not about the money for me, it’s more about changing peoples lives & for them to relate to what I’m preaching to the outside world. I was a very outspoken person, so music is the only way I can be who I am & say what I want”

Where I wanna be in 10 years?Living in my dream & creating a platform for all artists

Xsentrick is a self-made singer/songwriter/artist/ producer/curator who hails from the nation’s capital. His journey started back in 2012 & since then, he’s been delivering one-of-a-kind melodies that are sure to live rent-free in your head. He would define his sound as true to the genre & real music that makes you want to tune in. He’s one to look out for, stay tuned!

For years, the music industry has been dominated by men. But, over the past several years, a new generation of talented men has emerged, to take the industry by storm. From charismatic rookies, like Troy Barnes and Byron Lewis Jr. to veterans like Lonnie Lynn and The M.V.P., these men have left their mark on the industry. They have proven themselves to be capable of bringing in the big bucks & are poised to push the industry even further.

“Most people know of the great singers & musicians who have come out of the African American community, but fewer people know about the men who make the music that people listen to & love. The world of professional R&B is a small one. It’s a world dominated by men & dominated by men of color. When you talk about the top R&B artists or the biggest R&B hits, you’re talking about men. Most of the biggest R&B hits of the past decade have been sung by men.” He exclaimed. “But it doesn’t mean our women are far off. It’s amazing what people are creating every day & I want to do my part in it.” He added.

We asked Bankroll Shawty about the artists, who have inspired him before & throughout his music career & he had this to say, “I can’t really look at one artist & say they inspired me, but I feel like I was influenced from a little bit of everything; from running around imitating the Hot Boyz, in elementary school, to Chief Keef, Future, Youngboy & Rylo Rodriguez”.

The DMV artist occupies a lane of soulful, incisive raps, similar to most gifted lyricists, yet he has an intriguing malleability with his approach; as evidenced by his newest work.
