Grammy Award nominated recording artist and songwriter Remy Ma has found a new home with Columbia Records. One of the only female rappers to ever top the Billboard charts, Remy, who is fresh off the global smash hit “All The Way Up” is currently prepping a new album, titled 7 Winters & 6 Summers, which is set for an early 2018 release.

The album will be her first full length, solo album post her time spent incarcerated in upstate New York and focuses on her life at large. The album fearlessly tackles multiple subjects including love, marriage, self-care, motherhood, identity and freedom, told from Remy’s point of view.

On Monday, Mr. Lamar’s “DAMN.” took home an even more elusive honor, one that may never have even seemed within reach: the Pulitzer Prize for music. Mr. Lamar is not only the first rapper to win the award since the Pulitzers expanded to music in 1943, but he is also the first winner who is not a classical or jazz musician.

“The time was right,” Dana Canedy, the administrator of the prizes, said in an interview after the winners were announced. “We are very proud of this selection. It means that the jury and the board judging system worked as it’s supposed to — the best work was awarded a Pulitzer Prize.”

She added: “It shines a light on hip-hop in a completely different way. This is a big moment for hip-hop music and a big moment for the Pulitzers.”

All we can say is congratulations Kendrick! This is huge and we are over the moon happy for you. Mr. Lamar continues to push the envelope with his music, style, and mantra of activism! Dana is right this is a huge moment for hip-hop/rap, allowing others to recognized for their craft and contributions. What do you guys think of Kendrick’s big win?

Welcome To Emerald City

When it comes to who in Atlanta has and who does not there is a short list and then there’s a list that practically scrapes the stratosphere. Thankfully one Atlanta artist and actor is daring to break the stratosphere, becoming a rising star of the Web World and music world!

Martel Star is his name, winning is his game, and if you haven’t heard of him there’s a ledge on Spaghetti Junction you can step off of!

We first met Martel back in 2015, when he first began his acting career in a fledgling web series that never quite made it to production. That project may have fizzled but Martel has done everything, but that. “I’m just always determined to be the best me I can be. God’s blessed me with the ability to do a lot and I just know that my talent is going to take me some really amazing places…it is already is actually!” 

Indeed, Martel Star has made some serious moves in the last year with his appearance in noted web series, 7th & Love and Rahim Brazil’s Twisted. “Acting has really been taking off for me and I’m very happy about that [He laughs]. I definitely consider myself blessed for the opportunities I’ve been given and I’m actually about to be in a new web series that I can’ give the details on yet…” Martel made waves in his role on Twisted as “Nick,” an HIV positive gay man looking for love in all the wrong places. “Y’all know y’all love Nick! I’ll definitely be reprising that role in ‘Twisted 2’ [sequel/Season 2 of Twisted]…I really enjoyed playing that character because I feel like people relate to him a lot…we’ve all been played a little or been the person pining after someone. But he has a lot of strength and he really grew as the season progressed…”

As aforementioned Martel is not only a great actor, but an equally amazing artist. The boy can rap with the best of them and is constantly working to be greater and push the envelope to stardom. His latest musical venture involves a new EP, Welcome To Emerald City! The EP not only showcases his talents, but really set the bar for other indie rappers out there. “This [EP] has been a long time coming and I’ve put a lot of love and time into it–it’s my baby! The album definitely has something for everyone and you will be able to have fun and turn up to it!” Martel goes on to reveal the origins of his EP’s name. “Well I absolutely love ‘The Wizard of Oz!’ [And] I feel like Atlanta is Emerald City…It’s Black Hollywood, all the music and entertainment is coming from out here. It’s like the Black Mecca and land of opportunities just like Emerald City is where Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and The Lion went to get what they needed.”

Atlanta may very well be the launching pad for what will undoubtedly be an amazing career for Martel Star. However, it will be his charisma, talent, and will to be the best that will keep him there and rocket him to the top. “I’m ready for it all, and it’s going to be lit! I know I’m ready for it all and I’ll be giving the people a show!” Still, don’t take our word for it. If you are in Atlanta come and check him out at Welcome To Emerald City’s Release Party!  It all goes down at the Liquid Lounge, 150 Pine Street Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30308 at 5 PM EST! You can download Welcome To Emerald City on ALL digital platforms! Happy Listening!
