 New release from Underground Hip Hop artist “Mayh3m!” entitled “iRap”

irap copy (1)

Kito Denham (a.k.a. Mayh3m!) was born in Sacramento CA in the fall of 1979. The youngest of four boys, Mayh3m! quickly began to learn the ways of the world from his parents and older brothers. Music always was a big part of life growing up in a house full of artists, musicians and singers. 
The boys moved from CA to OH with their mother to start a new life in the mid-west. The street culture (known now as hip-hop) intrigued the young boys and they quickly were wrapped up in the art-forms of breaking, graffiti, rhyming and deejaying. Before long the whole neighborhood would be out front of the Denham residence breaking on cardboard and rhyming to the latest hip-hop music of the mid 80’s.
By the age of 13, Mayh3m! had already become a very talented musician/writer and was on his way to becoming the engineer and producer we all know and love today.
Kito and a couple close friends (Travis Bennett & Randy Olverson II {RIP}) started to really get into hip-hop music. Hardly ever apart the crew started to call themselves the Nap-E-Headz and began recording music with only a Karaoke tape recorder and a Talk Boy (from Home Alone). Kito took charge and sort of engineered the sessions and this was the start to something big. After letting people hear their music, they realized that they had a gift and people were dying to hear more of it.
Through-out middle school and high school Kito and Travis (now Mayh3m! and Jugganaut and/or Jugga) focused on perfecting their craft and working non-stop to become respectable artists in the city. Mayh3m! was already taking more of the “behind the scenes” role as there was a lack of interest in becoming a “Rap Star”. Mayh3m! has always seemed to be more interested in producing and developing artists who want to be in the “lime-light”.


The DJ element took on a whole new meaning once Mayh3m! and his friends Derrick Hill (DJ POS2!!) and Steve Counts, Jr. (DJ Universe) started spinning records and learning that art-form as a whole. The crew started to deejay school dances and friends house parties all over the city and it opened the door further for the hip-hop music that Mayh3m! and his new crew “Da Gladiators” started making and taking seriously. The crew consisted of Mayh3m!, Jugga, BYG Cheef and The Kamikaze Kid…all of which are now performing still.
In the summer of 1998, Da Gladiators recorded their first commercial track in a real studio and Mayh3m! produced the single “Da Gauntlet”. This was the start of something huge, not only for Mayh3m! but for the other members of the crew. Da Gladiators began to rock shows all over the city and began showing up on a lot of peoples radar when they were looking for some lyrical hip-hop.
In 2001 Mayh3m! released his first album Original Bassment Funk produced solely by himself. He traveled around Ohio, Michigan and a few other mid-western areas, promoting the album and writing.
Over the next few years Mayh3m! released a few more solo albums AwdioMayh3m! Vol. 1 & 2, Experimentals and a slew of albums from other artists that he produced and/or engineered. October 16th, 2012 was Mayh3m!’s 33rd birthday and he released his forth solo album Surreal Audio. October 16th, 2015 was also the release date for the album AwdioMayh3m! Vol. 3. Mayh3m!’s latest album iRap will be available November 17th. You can find these albums streaming and for sale on all major online retailers.

“Chance The Rapper” speaks against City Council in Chicago

Chance the Rapper

Chance The Rapper, real name “Chancellor Bennett” takes a stand against Chicago’s plan to build a $95 million dollar police academy. Chance attended a City Council meeting in Chicago stating the money should be invested in Chicago’s schools and mental health. Chance isn’t just known for creating great music. He’s also known for raising money for the public schools within Chicago. He asked “What are yall doin?” at the council meeting. Seeming very misguided, Chance has taken initiative to speak to Alderman and persuade everyone that this is a bad call. Before Chance even began to speak, Mayor Rahm Emanuel walks out of the meeting. When asked, why he stepped out during Chance’s speech, he stated “He had to call his mother to wish her a “Happy Birthday”.  -Corae Benson

Eminem releases an extremely political freestyle at the BET Hip Hop Awards

“The Calm Before the Storm” is what Eminem stated before he delivered this striking freestyle. Freestyling his HUGE disliking of our current President, Donald Trump, It appears that Eminem has drawn a line in the sand. Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James and Calvin Johnson all approve of what Eminem had to say.  Every one might not agree with Eminem’s message, but this appears to be the first freestyle in history to shake a nation.

Light House

Lighthou5e is an appropriate name for an artist that is a beacon of light for lost music fans, bringing structured lyrics, live instrumentation and clear delivery, to a music landscape littered with mumbling rappers and clichéd producers. He makes real Hip-Hop with influences from the golden era of rap, mixed with a contemporary production and fresh vocal flow.

Coraezy Hitz New EP “The TripMine Prodigy” Releases July 11th, 2017!!!

“TripMine” shall be Dark or accenting “goth” on an “Urban” level, but persuasive to men and women of all ages. This will be executed based on the multiple symbolic meanings of the brand “TripMine” in its entirety. I plan to present these key ingredients to my brand through the delivery of music composed. The music will be consistent of a “EP” and campaign entitled “The TripMine Prodigy”. “Prodigy” means- a person, having extraordinary talent or ability. I “Coraezy Hitz” plan to execute the role of the “Prodigy”. Doing so I shall be extremely shameless, yet encouraging. Creating a culture of work ethic, in the midst of “edgy” individuals that support cross promoting, and building independent brands likewise to TripMine.

Ace Hood’s Watch falls apart on BET Award’s red carpet!!! MUST WATCH!

It appear’s that Florida’s own Ace Hood is going through some financial complications. The under rated rapper had a strong start with DJ Khaled from his hit singles “Cash Flow” & “I’m So Hood”. But recently there’s been word that Ace has gone broke. From Khalid leaving Ace high and dry to Ace owing Def Jam 1 million dollars, it’s obvious that something isn’t right within the circle of Ace Hood’s business partners. 

Kanye decides not to release his project on Tidal


Apparently Kanye wanted a piece of the “Tidal Pie” but when he never received his bonus for “Life of Pablo” that deal came to an end. There’s confirmation from Tidal that Kanye has not followed through with a number of video’s he committed to producing along with the release of his project. Looks like Kanye will not be pursuing any “exclusive” releases with any other streaming company. 

The Base Review of Jay-Z’s New Album 4:44


The man that proclaims to be “Jehova” of the Hip Hop industry has set the record straight on 6.30.17. I hate to sound biased because I’ve always been a Jay-Z fan, but outside of his musical abilities, this man has displayed his intelligence on making sure his profit returns 10 fold. Note that you can only access his music on “Tidal”. That within itself, was a very strategic move on his part. Virtually the game has been changed far as Hip Hop albums or projects in general. It’s very simple now a days to obtain music outside of actually buying it. Snoop openly admitted he had to bootleg Jay-Z’s album! 

Take notes local artist!!! In most reviews of the album 4:44, I’ve read that Jay-Z has dropped a number of “Gems” referring to his advice and clearing the air far as gossip and his personal life experiences. The greatest “Gem” in this project, in my opinion is his display of how he handles his business not only as a Rapper, but as an Entrepreneur. The Album 4:44 is about 35 minutes long. Being an individual that reviews a ton of music on a daily basis, I appreciated the project. The instrumentals on this project aren’t linear to what’s hot today in Hip Hop, but he still manages to execute and deliver. This project is a reminder to Hip Hop fans everywhere of his authenticity as a business man and a Hip Hop Mogul of today’s generation.

New Lil Wayne Mixtape on the Horizon


Thanks to Wayne’s insta-snap story, the world has been warned about his up coming project! Even though he has not confirmed what this project will be entitled, he’s got fans holding their breath. On Tuesday (7/4/2017) Wayne decided to share snippets of the banger’s he has locked and loaded. One of them being a remix to “Magnolia” by Playboi Carti. There’s also confirmation that he’s not using auto-tune on any of these records. The streets have been patiently waiting on the Dedication 6, is the wait over? Only time will tell!
