In The Studio With Crown Holders, JDrew, & LyriX
By rapRISE |


This past weekend we were invited to join Crown Holders (J-Dub & Comodity), JDrew, and LyriX in their recording session at the Crown Holders’ personal studio. J-Dub handled the engineering as they all worked on music for JDrew’s upcoming mixtape ‘Class Act‘, as well as the next Crown Holders’ album, and a track from LyriX that we should be getting our hands on later this week. They were joined by singer/songwriter Jimmy Wellman.

These guys all seem to have a great vibe and bond. The sounds flowed purely and creatively. Look forward to some great music coming from all of these guys in the future.
(JDrew interview coming soon.)

Generation NeXt 2011 Coverage
By LG |

There are a million and one unsigned artists in Hollywood. You can walk the streets and bump into a rapper, actor, fashion designer, singer, & model all in the same block (Sometimes it’s the same person). What makes an artist different? What sets them apart from the rest of the crab barrel? The want, and need, for change.
