EDITOR’S NOTES

Crunkatlanta Magazine 2015

Who is Crunkatlanta? I am Eric aka Crunkatlanta & Promotewho.com ( no longer being used) The Internet Promoter, the one that is in love with Hip Hop. Follow me on Twitter @crunkatlantaMag . Born and raised in Detroit, MI. Yep, I'm from Seven Mile Rd and GreenfieldWhuddup Doe!! My first inspiration to get involved in the industry was when I found out that nobody heard of any Detroit rappers outside of Detroit ( Michigan). My first gig was with a friend (“T”) that I assisted with promoting Cam’ron back when he was a lil chunky in 1997. From there I found what my purpose was supposed to be. My all time fantasy career was to become a quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons. Once that dream was cut short from not getting the response back from -tryouts and competition over the years. I became hooked on music and brand marketing. http://www.crunkatlanta.com Wanna do business or have questions..

DANTE LYRIQ


Title: Chasing Shadows Artist: Dante Lyriq

Twitter: @dantelyriq Instagram: @dantelyriq Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DanteLyriQ101?fref=ts Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/dantelyriq contact: Brandon Edwards at emb8589@gmail.com; 804-539-0117

Growing up in Richmond, VA, Dante began singing at the age of four from the urging of his Grandmother during church services. Since then, it didn’t take long for others to notice his talent. He began to awe his audiences with the display of his range, strength of his voice, as well as his stage presence. After the passing of his grandmother, Dante vowed to follow what she had envisioned for him. “I’m not going to stop until the world knows Dante LyriQ” he proclaims. Along the way, he has been afforded the opportunities to perform as the opening act for Trey Songz, J. Holiday, Lloyd, Sammie, Lyfe Jennings, Kem, and Bow Wow’s “Price of Fame” Tour at the Richmond Coliseum. Dante continues to win the hearts of many on his musical journey. He's currently working non-stop to perfect his craft, spending countless hours in the studio creating new material, and working on new moves to wow his audience. Dante is determined to become one of the greats.

"Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength."

– Dante LyriQ


NOTORIETY Featured Duo In a Hip Hop universe where the Hip Hop group is becoming less and less common, two Boston neighborhood friends went against the odds. Vital Silveira (Vydle Sinez) and Charles Monfort (Incredible Chuck) came together to form Notoriety in early 2009 with the hopes of raising the bar for both solo performers and other duo’s alike. Remaining rooted in boom-bap and old school Hip Hop production, the pair also brought a creative approach to their art including adding elements such as beatboxing and singing to their music. Their winning combination is making quality music and keeping their core small while using their success to give shine to others in their community. Notoriety may be a Hip Hop duo, but behind that duo is the small but powerful management team of Matt Whitlock and Sam John. Whitlock specializes on the group’s digital presence while Sam John handles the physical aspects of the group dynamic. This formula has proven to be a highly impactful one. With this four-man team, Notoriety has amassed a large amount of popularity - while humbly maintaining a pretty low-key profile. Over the last 4 years, the duo has performed at their hometown Boston’s CollegeFest, collaborated with the likes of Rapper Big Pooh (of Little Brother), Statik Selektah, Joe Scudda and others. Additionally providing an energetic live show, Notoriety has also shared the stage with Saigon, Pac Div, Wale, Stalley, People Under The Stairs, REKS, Statik Selektah and more. In the midst of all their success, the group has stayed grounded and never forgotten their Boston roots. Last August, the duo released a project entitled “The Ground Table” which featured a plethora Boston Hip Hop artists on every track. Combine quality music, a small committed team and energetic live performances with a squad who always pays homage to where they come from and you’ll get Notoriety - a two man rapping machine that produces big results for the Boston music scene and for Hip Hop as a whole. The duo’s been relatively quiet here in 2015, but that’s not to say that they’re not working on new content. Notoriety will be performing at College Fest 2015 at Fenway Park in Boston and are also pleased to announce that “Expect The Unexpected” will be the title of their debut studio album, set to be released late 2015/early 2016. Notoriety prides themselves on creating diverse music, networking and precise planning and, for them, this album is only the springboard to the goals they have for the years to come.

Fuck tha Police‌ Straight Outta Compton In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, Straight Outta Compton is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.

Silent Assasin ‘Oh Really’ So you trying to grind and the ideal goal is to get your shine on, but here comes a good ole hater getting out of line. (Oh Really!) That’s cool, that’s fine! Why entertain nonsense in your downtime? Just hit them with the (‘Oh Really!”) one time for the one time. In the meantime, let’s address an issue and the topic is lying that gets out of hand because the individual lives in a fairyland taking you through their wonderland. (Oh Really!) They are convinced they’ve been to Thailand or Switzerland; I know some will understand exactly what I’m saying. (Oh Really!) Sit back and relax because those aren’t facts, as a matter of fact where’s the proof at come with more than that; on the other hand, it’s amazing the characters we can attract, it’s like pulling a rabbit out of a hat. They will continuously bump their gums and the whole time you’re thinking “this sucka must think I’m dumb” (Oh really!) When you hear some gossip and it’s brought to your attention that you’re the topic. Let the response be (Oh Really!), y’all need to stop it those rumor’s aren’t legit, but you can point me in the direction of the culprit who invented this myth for their benefit, so we can address these issues real quick. Tic Toc watch their tone get so loud you don’t hear a sound then they will start to frown, but hey it’s cool to smile because soon the circus will come to town and who knows you might be their favorite clown. To be continued…

‘Oh Snap” Think carefully before you choose your battles because reality is not a rap don’t set a trap that will get you got. Only the real will understand that fact. (Oh Snap!). Don’t sleep because while you’re counting sheep someone’s planning their next defeat. (Oh Snap!) Isn’t that sweet too many undercover enemies roaming the streets. Time to turn up the heat buckle your seat belt and enjoy the ride to the other side were warrior’s reside. (Oh snap!) Can you survive? Some will think it’s wise to despise the one that’s energized. The objective is to get to the money, but there will always one testy dummy who think it’s funny to front for the homie. Oh snap, it’s a wrap! Show them what you made of give them a front row seat to the Lord’s blessing from up above. While you sneak in a mean mug thank them for helping you meet the plug. Oh snap, they should have known hating comes with stipulations that increases popularity amongst the population. Oh snap! To be continued…
