New Video from @tialaflare aka Tia Nomore “Suck It Easy”

tia nomore

Straight out of Oakland is lil miss sassy Tia Nomore who states on her bandcamp, “i just record when i can and write all the time.”  FF first discovered her on Soundcloud (which we are truly upset was just bought by Warner Music) with her song  “Or Nah” featuring Kehlani which has over 340K plays. We love the fact that she isn’t trying to impress, just raw emotions for us when she feels like it. It takes the pressure off and allows the artists to just create when motivated, right? In the beginning she dropped 13th Grade which included 11 tracks some experimental, some in the pure essence of hiphop. Needless to say, she is def someone to check lyric wise as well as the producers she is working with is equally dope. But you let us know your thought… Tweet us @FemaleFlowMusic


Why is #DTP disturbing @ShawnnaMusic’s peace?

What happened at the BET Hip Hop Awards?

It’s crazy. We put a lot of money and effort into getting down to Atlanta for BET Hip Hop Awards weekend, so we could promote my new single “Gettin’ To It.” It’s getting a lot of buzz here at home in Chicago, but it takes more than that to break a record. So we were all set up, ready to go down there, mingle with DJs, and get a good look on the red carpet.

I actually didn’t even know they were considering me for the cypher. We were right outside of Atlanta, and they contacted my manager and said, “We might have another slot in the cypher, and we’re considering Shawnna.” So we hit the metal a little harder [laughs].

When we get there, my manager says, “Shawnna I need to talk to you. Our PR person just got word from BET that you have been denied access to the red carpet and the BET Hip Hop Awards.” At that moment, my whole world stopped. It had been a minute since I had been this excited about getting back on the scene and letting everybody know I’m ready. I was embarrassed, hurt, angry, all in one. That was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

A lot of people have been asking me the past four years, “What’s up with you and DTP? What happened?” It just brought back old emotions of the same type of stuff I was dealing with when I was with this label. I said, “I’m fed up. I’m not taking this anymore.” It’s been four years. I’ve been nothing but cordial about the situation. I never bad mouthed this company. I never said a bad thing about Ludacris.

I just wished them all the best. Knowing that I knew other things could be said to ruffle the feathers, to play the dirty side. This is in no way a ploy to promote a mixtape, cause I don’t even have a mixtape right now. All I was trying to do was get down there and make a little noise with my single, network, communicate with people. They just tried to put a stop on everything. But God is good. We kept grinding. We kept doing our thing.

All-in-all it didn’t turn out to be a bad situation. But the things we had planned to do never happened, because of some situation with Disturbing Tha Peace not wanting me to be involved in it.

What was BET’s reason that they gave on why you weren’t allowed to participate?

BET was just saying that they had gone into a partnership with Disturbing Tha Peace. They came together to present the festivities. This, in my opinion, is what gave [DTP] the authority to do so. No shade to BET. BET has always shown me mad, mad love, so I know this had nothing to do with them. That’s the other reason I’m so upset. I know exactly where it came from.

In any interview you’ve seen or heard me in, I’ve never said anything bad about [DTP]. After four years of being silent and turning the other cheek – to still try to take this slap from them. I’m not taking it laying down in no way. To me it’s saying they still want to go to war with me. They got a problem. If you got a problem with me, okay we can address it. We can get it out there. What you wanna do? You can’t keep going in my pocket.

Are you still contractually tied to them?

No, I’m not. I have not been signed to Disturbing Tha Peace for four years. I have no connection to them. I haven’t even spoken to Luda since before we even got to the split. I haven’t spoken to Luda since we were in the studio working on [the intended Shawnna-Ludacris collaborative album] Battle Of The Sexes.

I don’t understand why after four years, y’all still wanna take this shot at me. I have no idea what their next move could be, because I had no idea they’d make this move. I honestly thought they were on the same page as me – we’re going to let what happened between us, be between us. Let’s move forward on our own paths amicably. Obviously, I was wrong.

Do I just take this and walk away with it? Or I do let it be known I’m not going to take this. I rep my city. So if I take an “L”, my city takes an “L”. I can’t do that. I love them too much, and they love me too much.

Females in the industry cannot afford to take “Ls” like that. If I win, females win. If I lose, females lose. That’s how I look at it. So even if I wanted to say, “Ah man, whatever. I’m gonna just walk away.” It’s not just doing that for me. We already got so much against us.


I know you’re in the studio right now putting in work.

Yeah, I need to be heard. I need for this to be known. People think I’m dead, gone, buried alive. People think I just walked away, I’m done. No, I’m out here working. It’s just so many situations with people trying to have their foot on my neck.

For so long I was always playing the nice guy. Saying, “Things happen for a reason. It’s gonna get greater later.” F**k that s**t! I’m done with that. I’m done playing the nice guy. If that’s what I gotta do, then that’s what I gotta do. You wanna go to war with me,  I’m war ready. Point, blank, period. You wanna leave me alone, then leave me alone. You wanna go at it with me, let’s go.

#NewVideo from @sarocthemc with David Banner titled “The Who?” and bonus video!!

Sa-Roc The MC hails from the southeastern area of Washington DC, a city that’s a mashup of poverty stricken hoods, a strong radical movement, and a fierce loyalty to cultural preservation. This is the cocoon from which Saroc was birthed and bred. Sa-Roc has recorded songs with Jay Electronica, Nappy Roots, Afrika Bambataa and Stic.Man of dead prez.

A product of Afrikan-centered parents, Saroc developed a rebel mentality from an early age. She grew up on the music of Jimi Hendrix, Gil Scott Heron, and Earth,Wind & Fire. Her musical soundtrack was a klash of sounds, from gogo, to rock, to hip hop. This foundation began an aural quest for different sounds and concepts in music. It wasn’t until 2002, when Sa-Roc met Atlanta producer Sol Messiah, that she began her love affair with the mic. as well as developed a sound that was 1 part hood poetry, 2 parts otherworldly, and totally new and fresh. From subject matter ranging from melanin to pyramids, Saroc spits metaphysical ideas over melodic hip hop beats, seeking to fuse knowledge of self with great music. She seeks to create not just a couple of albums, but a full-fledged musical movement. A cultural griot, Saroc intends to reinstate the art of emceeing to its former glory, passing down the legacy 1 sixteen at a time.

#NewVideo – @3DNATEE – “We Made It” Remix

3dnatee 3dnatee B

In her own words, “I linked up with Quincy Scott, a 20 year old director/editor from New Orleans, for the visual that we shot back at home. It’s public knowledge that I recently signed a deal with Russell Simmons’ All Def Music record label backed with distribution from Universal Records. When people heard the news, naturally the expected me flash money on Instagram, go and purchase a new car, or do some other flashy shxt to prove that I recently reached a new tax bracket. And although I’m richer than I’ve ever been, that’s not the reason I feel like I made it. I’m still driving the same Dodge and drinking 3D Na’Tee Daiquiris instead of Dusse and Ace of Spades. “She Made It,” or at least she’s on her way to making it, because she did it her way. And that my friends, is the coldest feeling ever.”

#LYRICS
07 I was pedaling dope out my Tahoe/
married to medicine like the chicks off of Bravo
Used to spend my days pducking 5.0
Now I be out in LA doing Tabo
Did a deal/ I’m worth but I’m still strapped though
I guess I gotta buy a chain and a whip according to the black folks
I guess I gotta do it for the gram/ for the cam/ and spend a stack?/ NO
What the phuck I look like?/ that ain’t what I rap for
But I did it/ yeah I did it
Started shxtting on these bxtches y’all thought I was kidding
Told universal cut the cut the check/ Think I got a victim
Now I’m doing everything that I envisioned
To my admission/ I ain’t never have a pot to piss in…

New Video: “Betty Shabazz” by @RapsodyMusic

New Video titled “Betty Shabazz” from Jamla Record’s Rapsody was directed by Brian Petchers and produced by 9th Wonder.  From the album, “9th Wonder Presents: Jamla Is the Squad (Deluxe Edition) and is available now for purchase. This is another dope, lyrical song from the emcee who continues to deliver. We guarantee you will press repeat. Our only complaint was that it didn’t go back to the Betty Shabazz track.

“I ain’t really talkin’ much, just bustin’.”

New Video: @Laughta1 “Find It Funny” featuring Clencha

laughta

Out of Northwest London is an unsigned emcee  and actress named Laughta.

A member of the High Bar Nationals collective since 2011; Laughta met and began collaborating with fellow artist and producer Str8face, who helped her create her debut EP ‘Unstoppable’, released in July of 2012. During that time, the diversity of her stage appearances ranged from plays and musicals, to wins at SB:TV’s Peacemix and Unsigned Hype (with High Bar Nation), to interviews alongside the likes of Tinchy Stryder on ITN and London360. Each had a definitive impact on Laughta’s artistic expression, though none moreso than in March of 2013, when the chance to open for US Rap Star Joe Budden at East London’s Club XOYO, inspired a new level of intensity and passion for her craft.

The progression of her musical tastes and expressive skills enabled Laughta to discover new talents within herself that far exceeded the Grime genre she started out in. That new mindset came at exactly the right time. Now back with her second EP, ‘Most Wanted’; Laughta is ready for an entirely new phase in her musical career.

Currently preparing to compete in July’s Rapstar competition where Akala – one of Laughta’s lyrical inspirations – will headline the final; this highly respected Rapper is the only female in her category to reach this stage. The following week, this hugely talented female will headline her own EP launch for the very first time. With special guest support from fellow up and coming artist Lady Lykez amongst many others, there can be no question as to why Laughta is earning rave reviews from fellow artists and Industry heavyweights alike.
