Pritti Shu

Introducing Dancehall Music’s super talented and most outlandish artist, PRITTI SHU, hailing from Huntley Castle, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica West Indies!

PRITTI SHU’s love for music and the expression of thought drives his desire to create. He began his music career in 2012 when he recorded his first track, “High Roller” at DownSounds Records in Kingston, Jamaica. For the next ten years SHU would continue to develop his sound while making a big name for himself in the local street dance circuit in Jamaica.

SHU’s capability to blend his unique melodies over a variety of riddims to compose different genres of music sets him apart from the rest. “My music and the melodies I possess are very versatile and my image is one-of-a-kind. I am the ‘Melody-Genie‘ and I haven’t heard any Deejay with my sound as yet. My style of Dancehall music can mesh with R&B, Pop or Afro-Beats sounds. Each song carries a different vibe.”

He is a man of many talents. Besides being a Deejay, he is also a music producer, commercial model and an entrepreneur, serving as CEO of his company, Essential Construction, LLC. “I take pride in all that I do. I have a love for making music and I am a skilled carpenter. I also dabble in modeling which is a fun hobby for me…after all I am PRITTI SHU! (Laughing) Whichever position seems to fit I’m ready for it. I make sure what needs to get done is done. In the end I want to make sure my team is happy and my family is secure.”

When asked what his views are on the current state of Dancehall music, SHU had this to say, “The quality of the music now compared to the quality of the music back in the 80’s and 90’s is definitely different. Today’s music is not as authentic. The beats are being modernized and the lyrics are not as potent, but they’re still deliverable. People still love our music and our culture despite what is being produced.”

SHU’s musical influences come from his personal experiences. He writes songs that his fans can relate to about life and how it impacts his family, friends and others in his surroundings. “The greatest challenge I face as an artist is getting my music on a platform broad enough to reach people from all walks of life. My sound brings good vibrations that people across the world need to hear!” Like his favorite artist, the late great BOB MARLEY, SHU spreads messages of love and consciousness through his music.

PRITTI SHU is busy working on his upcoming EP while producing music for fellow artists, building up his company and performing his latest track, “DISRESPECT“, for adoring fans. “I strive to be the best in whatever I do. I have two sons who look to me as a role model and I plan to show them the right way. I will continue to perfect my craft and create fantastic music for the world. In due time I will be the face of Dancehall Music and make an indelible mark on this industry. Only great things to come!”

FLIP J HENDRIXS

FLIP J HENDRIXS already has the underground music scene in a chokehold, now he’s climbing out the manhole headed for the top spot!

A rebel born in Harlem, USA (via 138th St. in Mitchell Projects) and raised in the South Bronx, FLIP has no problem standing up and standing out. His distinct musical sound is a beautiful combination of Hip-Hop, Pop, Jazz, Drill Rap, Caribbean vibes and R&B. “Basically I draw from all different genres of music. There’s no limit to my versatility. My style is unidentified. I’m different, that’s the difference.”

Oddly enough his music career began the day he buried his father. Needing to focus on something other than the difficulty of losing his loved one, FLIP sat down and conversed with his father’s mentor. “KEITH and I were chopping it up at the service, reminiscing about my Pops when he randomly asked me if I rapped. I was like, “Hell yeah I rap!”, and at that exact moment my dreams came alive! I hit the studio right after my Pop’s funeral service and never looked back.”

Five years later, we can see the progress FLIP’s laser focus has garnered him. He has a host of bangers streaming on your favorite music platforms, visuals available on his YouTube Channel and a new EP in the works. “I had to lock in on my music and start working towards my goals. No days off!”

When it comes to music and entertainment FLIP dabbles in a little bit of everything, He enjoys recording music, writing songs, creating beats and melodies and performing for the crowd. You’d be hard-pressed to find this ball of energy sitting still in any type of setting. “If I wasn’t rapping, I would probably be an extreme skateboarder who designs clothing and plays the guitar here and there. (Laughing) I love being active and doing creative and interesting things. I cannot be idle.”

After quietly observing the music scene, FLIP has seen and heard enough to know the pitfalls that come with a career in this industry, yet he is determined to become a success while staying true to himself. “There is some good, bad and ugly in this industry, like everything else in life. I want to keep it as real as possible. The music on my side of town is ok, but I’m a little bit tired of hearing it. The lack of individuality wears me out. As an artist I pride myself on being original. All of us artists can’t keep rapping about the same things. The people want different sounds and music that they can relate to.”

FLIP’s favorite artists include Lil Wayne and 50 CENT. He also has a fondness for New York’s 90’s Hip-Hop Era (which explains the authenticity in his style). I’m not sure most of today’s Rappers would’ve survived the 90’s when you actually had to have bars and a message. When asked to describe himself as a musician and why he chose his eccentric moniker, he broke down all of the different elements that make up the superstar persona of FLIP J HENDRIXS

A wise man once said, A self-aware man is a successful man and FLIP J HENDRIXS knows exactly who he is and what he wants. “I want the world, not just the streets. My wave is for the whole world to embrace, not just the block.”

FLIP the world can’t wait to hear what journey your musical imagination and high energy will take us on with your new project, let’s go!

DON PRIVATE

Introducing Fayetteville, North Carolina’s hottest new artist, DON PRIVATE.

DON PRIVATE is a prolific storyteller who paints vivid pictures with his pithy bars and distinctive voice. In 2020, he blessed us with his debut EP “1229“, introducing us to his signature style, a perfect blend of sharp, solid lyrics spilled over sturdy, hypnotic beats. ‘See I was locked up in that climate. Lions and tigers and bears and these thoughts in my head they be violent. I didn’t do no crime, stood on all ten like I’m climbing. Iron sharpen iron, Imma push mine you implying. Made it out that dirt now I shine like a diamond. I was in that dirt, didn’t nobody try to find me…’ -PRETTY TONY.

Oddly enough, DON didn’t set out to be a Rapper. “Rapping was a hobby I developed throughout the 13 long years I spent in prison. I knew I had a story to tell for myself and for my brothers who were still in the struggle. The best way for me to get it out was through music. In 2010 I was in S.E.G., which is 24 hour lockdown in prison, and I was vibing to Nipsey Hussle’s song “Loaded Bases“. He said, ‘Nigga ain’t gon’ make a hundred mil’ off in these streets and more than likely, I’m gon’ end up in somebody precinct even worse…’ In that moment I knew I had to make a plan for myself to prosper. The streets and prison was all I knew up to that point and it was time to change that narrative.”

Once a young bull tied to the streets and the struggle, he’s now a grown man using his life experiences to fuel his bars. “Overall, the struggle is what inspires me. Being able to use my voice to speak for those like me, that may never be heard, pushes me to keep going.”

He doesn’t take his ability to empower people with his music lightly. “Being a rapper is powerful! We get to share our experiences with the world, become influencers to the current generation and those to come and have the opportunity to make millions. I feel blessed to be in this game.”

DON honestly doesn’t know what he’d be doing if it weren’t for music. “Running the streets and being in prison was my life for a long time, so when I decided to lock in and make music I was all in and ready to give 110%! No other career paths have even crossed my mind. I’m so passionate about my music and sharing my message and my vision with the world. Imma play Picasso in this industry.”

He draws inspiration from his favorite artists, which he lists in no particular order (Nipsey HussleLil DurkRick Ross and Lil’ Baby) yet prides himself on being original and transparent. Hence the name DON PRIVATE private– not known or meant to be known by the general populace. “My music isn’t like most in the mainstream today. I spit from the heart. This shit here is authentic, not a gimmick created to sell streams. That’s why Nipsey Hussle is such a huge inspiration to me. I relate to his lyrics and see the pictures he paints with his music and that’s what my music will do for the people.”

DON’s story is a shining example of how a difficult situation can lead to a beautiful destination. “Hip-Hop is beautiful. It made a way for street niggas like me to escape their environment and live life. I’m grateful for the second chance. Me and MR RED CARPET got next. 1229 is ready to take it to the top!”

Stay tuned, DON PRIVATE will be releasing his sophomore effort, “1229Empire“, this summer. “I’m definitely thrilled about this new project, y’all gon’ really feel this one! This is just the first step. Once I’m established I plan to build a platform where those who come after me can thrive too. That’s what it’s all about, opening doors for each other and being able to leave a legacy for my loved ones.”

DON PRIVATE’s EP “1229” is currently streaming on all digital music platforms with visuals on available on his YouTube Channel, Don Private – Topic. TAP IN!
