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!”

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 YouTubeChannel 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.”
