Who is Crunkatlanta? I am Eric aka Crunkatlanta & Promotewho.com - 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 ( Promo page )

rom F t s Repo mber e Septe- 2016 Issu
Q & A with MO BEATZ
What got you into Hip Hop/Rap? I grew up listening to music... my pops, my sister and brother all use to be into music...
How would you describe yourself as an artist? As an artist I'm realistic.. I state facts of life.. my lifestyle and what I'm living. What led to your style of delivery and beatselection? My style is me ,, the way I talk,, the Beatz have to be different.. so I'm always trying to come with a different sound Do you select the beat for the rap or rap around the beat? I build off the beat.. the beat has to be the foundation and the words has to fit in the the spaces... How do you think you differ from other artists? I am Authentic and my Story is True. My DNA breeds music. The name Mo Beatz is alias as the Notorious Bang'n Beat Maker! I been cookin that "KRACK" for South Carolina Buzzworthy Underground Rappers. My grind, my sound and just being myself makes me different.. Being a producer 1st makes it easy for me to hear what should be on tracks.
What ‘s the most important item in your music collection? Important item is my keyboard. It all starts with sounds.. Dead or alive, who would be your dream collaboration? Jay-Z What’s the last track you listened to? My new single 4eva Who do you think the most influential artist in Hip-Hop is? Jay-Z What’s your guilty pleasure? Fine red women Who is the most influential artist now, and 10 years ago? Jay-Z Why is there so much feuding in the world of hip hop? Envy amongst the no business baring wanna be rappers aimed at the True Grind and on the flip side The lack of respect from the "Fake" artists towards the Respective Artists who won't get the Majority Media Hype or Huge Endorsements from not being willing to assume the "Actors Rap Role". I believe in my music and my Manager Timo James and we have no limits because we can accomplish all Business Ventures due to no "Budget" conflicts of interest.... "I'm Good" single off PaperBoy 3 "The Trilogy" The Mixtape/Album Droppin Top of September Fall' 2016 A lot of young fake dudes now. They just do whatever now and the people buy into it..
Is beefing in the industry healthy for the culture? As long as it remains in it's entirety of the competition nature it's Kool,because it's a form of Hip Hop
Nas claims "hip hop is dead" what is your opinion? Hop hip isn't dead, it just changed up a bit .. like having an old 69 Chevy Camoro as now the 2017 is more computerized... Lifestyles are different now.. so the music is different..
Even if Eminem made superior music to most of the mainstream hip hop world, does his skin color have to do with why he may not be considered one of the best? No nothing to do with color Do you think music that is enjoyed more for the beat or for the words, and why? Is America so superficial that the best lyrical artists are surpassed and outsold by generic mainstream artists? Yes
What is your opinion of Kanye West? Musical mastermind, or Dennis the Menance of the industry? I respect Kanye West he made his own lane and he stay the same.. regardless of what he's going to do him.. Is there any artist that is popular that you are sure you could take down? Yes why not The separation of male and female artist should it be divided? Yes - the definition of a rapper isn't gender based but automatically figure to be a male. What do you think of rappers promoting violence , drugs and guns in their music ? When it's not described as community awareness for example NWA or SELF DESTRUCTION, then it doesn't benefit the people! My story is real, my life is I don't glorify that type of message,instead I tell my Life Story for a Price because I was blessed enough Musically and Mentally to figure out how to profit from my situation and in return enable my life to evolve into a Powerful Positive Business. They promote it in the movies and TV shows. But that's not a problem with society.. rappers are just giving a story.
Last couple questions
Will Conscious Rap ever make a comeback? It never left, mainstream media took a vacation on Spreading The Social Consciousness Awareness, better yet the day & time of Era brings forth the Conscious Message back into the Mainstream Media
What type of artist are you? Well Rounded I'm all over the Music Highway.... You know how some rappers say I'm in my own lane,I'm across the Board. The example is I am a Street King that is very Popular, that automatically puts me in the "Pop" genre .

New Jersey has been bubbling musical talent for quite a long time and native Kevin Kush is no exception. The singer/rapper is best known for his raw rap delivery but on his latest record "Nobody Home", he decides to showcase more of his melodic singing ability. The smooth track produced by Mr. Kooman & Purps goes into Kevin speaking about a love gone sour. Looking to bring something new to the table, "Nobody Home" can well be impacting radio in the next few months. Keep a eye out, this is only a introduction. Be on the look out for more to come from this rising star.

TSPOON Portland artist TSpoon shows out on his latest release "Big Money" featuring one of The Bay hottest artists, Larry June. Fresh off a trip to the ATL, Spoon gets right to it over a hypnotic baseline and immaculate drum work by NonStopDaHitman, who also recently produced for Rick Ross and has been added to the 808 Mafia production team. Spoon and Larry June recently connected in Portland over the summer while on tour, with the result being a collab made in trap heaven. With several releases over the past few months, including the visuals for Wasted featuring Manny Monday and the infectious Dope As Me, it's obvious TSpoon has been one of the hardest working, up and coming artists in 2016. Tap in with TSpoon @TheYoungWaveGod and stream his latest, "Big Money" featuring Larry June

ABOUT NAFETS: Nafets is a 20 year old producer and rapper from Fort Washington, Maryland, and a first generation American of Trinidadian descent. He finds inspiration for his music largely from the isolation he felt throughout his upbringing in which he was often thrust into various racial communities that emphasized a sense of nonbelonging within him. As an adult, he has come to utilize his outlier identity not as a distinction of separation but as a means to better understand different cultures and groups of people. His insight enriches his music that emphasizes not an assimilation into mainstream hip-hop but a critical look at its common central themes of ego, materialism, and machismo. As such, Nafets embodies his music primarily through his sound and thematics, rather than the imagery of a “celebrity” artist. While he used the sobriquet Mr. Ramen in college, depression became the totality of his identity and the main source of inspiration in his writing. However, when he wanted to discard depression’s cloud, he changed his name to Nafets (his real name backwards) to represent the the creation of an identity born from shedding weaknesses — and that change is possible even if it is more difficult than mere passive acceptance. When he starting out, he played bass and drums. Nafets soon gravitated toward hip-hop and then was inspired by the Odd Future movement. His debut concept album The Death of Mr. Ramen marks his emergence as a novel creative force in the industry.
