After dropping his debut project “NO WAY OUT” last year, BFM FUEGO is back with his sophomore release “GHETTO RUMORS“.
“GHETTO RUMORS” is FUEGO’s rite of passage. In his own words he reveals the inspiration behind it. “The mixtape was built around various rumors and false claims that were made about me regarding different situations I experienced this past year. Instead of reacting negatively and letting the chattin’ get to me, I decided to take my thoughts and feelings and put them into my music. It helped me deal with it in a mature way and make some fire songs and I know there are people who can relate to what I have going on.”
FUEGO’s melodic mismatch style of rhyming and snappy hooks keep you immersed in his vibe while each track tells a special story. Top tracks on the EP are the “Say Something (Intro)“, “BestofBlue“, “Dead Eye” (feat. Sosa Milly) and “Lil Baby (2)“.
Overall it is a terrific project. His growth as a man and an artist are evident. No doubt BFM FUEGO is leaving behind the childish ways and getting to those blue faces! “GHETTO RUMORS” is currently streaming on digital music platforms, go run it up!
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!”

MR RED CARPET ain’t waiting on no lines, he’s walking straight up to the front.
A native of Fayetteville, North Carolina MRRED CARPET came on the scene in 2020 and stole the show. While the pandemic had some of us held hostage, he was out grinding and building up momentum, releasing two EPs, “STAMPED AND SEALED” and “JAPANESE STICK“.
His second EP’s title single, “JAPANESE STICK“, got the trenches going crazy. “I ran up a bag in jail, they wanted me bad to fail. I had to run ’em down with the stick, he ain’t have a chance to tell…When you talk to me, talk with respect. This Japanese stick leave a mess…” RED CARPET is talking that talk, determined to prove his doubters wrong and get his weight up in the music game.
His high energy performances in local showcases had the town buzzing. He was something special and the fans and promoters were starting to take notice. Soon he was invited to tour with Ugly Money Neichi after winning their Ugly Money Showcase, booking him on tour dates in Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Atlanta and North Carolina. This opportunity proved that his hard work was paying off.
He continued to tour, work on new music and rack up more W’s. Most recently he won the MOSS FEST in Tampa, Florida, the I WANNA TOUR showcase in Fayetteville, North Carolina and Memphis rap star, Moneybagg Yo’s BreadGang Tour Talent Search beating out 500 other artists! He’s back on they ass again…
RED CARPET admits he spent six years in Federal prison after some not-so-wise decisions, but is proud to say that he used that time to reset. Instead of focusing on the grim circumstances, he designed his grand plan and came straight home to live his dream. “That time I spent on lockdown was a minor setback for a major comeback. I started writing to keep my mind busy and the more I wrote, the better I got. I made a promise to myself that I would make it with the music and I’m getting to it. I work on my craft consistently. You gotta respect my struggle and my hunger.”
Fayetteville, North Carolina is like every other city in the world, filled with aspiring artists hoping to be the next big act, but RED CARPET isn’t leaving them much room. “In Hip-Hop music today 90% of the artists sound the same. My style is different and more versatile. I listen and learn from the greats like J PRINCE, PROJECT PAT, JAY Z, SCARFACE and my homie DON PRIVATE. We keep each other sharp and we’re ready to take over this rap shit. Even though I have a drill flow I don’t sound like everybody and my stage presence cannot be denied. There ain’t no cap in my rap, ya dig? My music is trending cus’ it’s real and it’s motivational. No matter how bad things seem at the the time, tomorrow brings a chance to move in a better direction. I’m living proof of that.”
MR RED CARPET is putting the finishing touches on his upcoming project titled, “PENITENTIARY BABY“, scheduled to drop this year. “My goal is to make history with this album and do what no other artist has done. I want to solidify my spot in this game and create a lane for my brothers to eat. Anything is possible when you stay focused, grind hard and believe in yourself.”
There’s no sweeping this rising star under the rug, he’s ready to shine! MR RED CARPET’s EP’s “STAMPED AND SEALED” and “JAPANESE STICK” are available for streaming on all digital platforms. Follow him on Instagram for new music alerts and upcoming tour dates.
