J. Irja The Sexy Psycho Preps Her Debut EP Featuring Paul Wall, Lil’ Flip & More

Respect the hustle.

[dropcap]C[/dropcap]ame across a Canadian-born MC named J. Irja The Sexy Psycho that is putting in some significant grind time — and it’s starting to pay off. A hustler and all around a business-minded individual, her music isn’t just a white girl throwing words together trying to be down, it’s all shit she’s experienced first hand; delivered with rapid-fire bars that are impressive as hell.

She’s been through some real shit, like having to recover from two serious head injuries and living through a relationship with an abusive ex-manager.

Endearingly, though, she’s kept her career moving with her head high — forming a non-profit foundation (comprised entirely of women) called the “Female Empowerment Movement Militia” in honor of her daughter. Its ultimate mission is to uplift and motivate women to succeed and smash ceiling, shatter sexual inequality once and for all.

“I’ve been grinding for years and am finally starting to gain traction,” she tells AAHH excitedly. This grind is well-documented on her You-Tube, as she hits shows alongside acts like Stevie Stoned and Rittz and puts in serious groundwork during SXSW.

 

 
All of her hard work will come to a pinnacle though when she drops her debut album The Sexy Psycho EP vol 1 at the end of the month (January 31). With features from platinum-selling artists like the grill king Paul Wall, one-time Timbaland collaborator Bubba Sparxxx, Twista, and H-Town legend Lil’ Flip — among others — she’s aiming to finally take her career where she’s always envisioned it going, the top.

So if you’re keeping track, she’s touring with artists affiliated with Strange Music, earning stage time and going hand to hand at SXSW building her fan base, and has a foundation that is elevating women and helping create a more leveled playing field with the industry and in society at large. That’s a lot to hang your hat on — and her debut is the icing on the cake.

She has hella video content in her back catalog, but give her a spin. Respect the hustle.
Early.

Gerb the Point Guard (@bhrekords) – “New To Me”

Today Breadhouse Rekords rapper Gerb the Point Guard preps his new album Out On Bond with a new visual for fans despite remaining on house arrest. Supported by his new single “New 2 Me,” the Florida bred rapper is out on bond while he continues to fight a legal case within the Florida legal system.

 “It’s just a record about how gettin money and doin thangs ain’t really New 2 Me just like the song says, I kinda been doin that just under the radar and really ain’t had the chance to make it too big. But, the area I’m from, everybody know me, lot of big time artists know me, it’s just under the radar for now” Gerb the Point Guard said.

Hoping to give Hip-Hop and Rap fans an update on his case and insights into his situation Gerb has put all his effort into his music and recording. He’s sober, he’s on house arrest and he’s focused on finding a way to persevere, no matter if it’s the streets or the Coronavirus in his way.  

“I basically want to give everyone the inside on what I got going on with my situation, I was arrested about 6 months ago on some charges and I was finally able to get a bond on my case. I got out so I got a little window and I’m not sure how the situation is going to work out so, I’m just putting all my work and effort into my music in my free time right now and basically I want to get the word out about what I got going on and what I had going on before I got into situation.”

Now pushing his movement through his own record label called, Breadhouse Rekords, Gerb the Point Guard has also been working on developing younger talent on his label. 

“Breadhouse Rekords is a kind of a switch over from the FinesseGang thing and before I ran into my situation I was helping push a bunch of young artist come up.  I’m just pushing my new stuff now ever since I was released and I’m just recording and working from home like everyone else during this time” Gerb the Point Guard said. 

Never to be discouraged by a situation, Gerb says that he will continue to release music and visuals over the next few months. 

“The case may drag a few years with pre-trial cases and I’m on ankle monitor so I can’t really go too many places or do too many things right now, but I’m dropping music and visuals all through Spring to keep the fans happy.”

Recently Dallas, Texas rapper Fat Yunginn and Cash Money Records are happy to announce the Pleasant Grove rapper’s signing to their iconic rap label. Pictured above with Birdman and Ronald Slim” Williams, this young upstart has officially inked a deal with one of the most iconic Hip-Hop/Rap labels in the history of music. 

First getting notoriety for his song “Sack Up” in 2016, Fat Yunginn says he always wanted to sign with Cash Money Records and that it’s a “perfect match.”

“I grew up off Cash Money, I grew up listening to them. I ain’t gonna lie I always wanted to be on Cash Money and I always wanted to sign with them. I don’t really go off what other people say or what they do and say about Cash Money. Birdman came up talking about he was the #1 Stunna and if you listen to my flow you can hear my ooh flow fits with this brand. Sack Season / Cash Money Records. It’s a perfect match.”

Raised in Dallas’ Pleasant Grove, Fat Yunginn drew inspiration from his father’s passing and from there began to take off on the strip club scene in Dallas. 

“I’m from Dallas Texas, from a hood out there called Pleasant Grove. I started doing music once my Pops passed away and I just took to music and it was just going up from there. Once I dropped Sack Up it went crazy in the strip clubs and so after that I started taking it more seriously. One night I went in the strip club and tipped a couple of females and this big DJ in Dallas named DJ Hit That began spinning it.  It took off from there and I did my first paid show off that song,” Fat Yunginn said.   “As far as Dallas and the surrounding areas I was able to perform Sack Up out there and I was able to build up my brand. We’re called Sack Season Ent, but we call ourselves Sack Babies. Anything that has to do with a sack of money we about that. Thats basically how they know me around here.”

Going forward Fat Younginn is preparing for the release of his next single called, “Show My Ass” featuring fellow Dallas rapper Yella Beezy.

“I got another song called Show My Ass thats another club banger with Yella Beezy and we gonna release that one through Cash Money. I got the visual for my next track, it’s just to get my sound out there a little more and my ooh flow. Its my ad lib you can hear in a lot of my songs. Then I have another with Rylo Rodriguez and another one with Euro Gotti. I got a lot of unreleased music I can’t wait for the fans to hear it,” he added.  “I can get in there and start from scratch, the ooo flow, I have fun in the studio. When I came up with the ooh flow I was just playing around people have just been gravitating towards it.”

Trap Main (@Qbg_trapmain) – “First Day Out”

Recently Mississippi rapper Trap Main released the video for his new song, “First Day Out.” The song is his first release after being incarcerated for over two years for a crime he fought and took to trial.  Trap Main was held against his will but eventually appealed a 30 year sentence and was released. Through it all Trap Main was supported in prison by a “Free Trap” campaign that continued to gain steam until his release recently. 

Now Trap Main is coming back with a vengeance and his new single “First Day Out,” a tribute to his fans that continued to support him while he was locked up. Releasing two projects while in jail titled, Born in the Trap  and Free Trap, the buzz has continued since his release to unanticipated levels.

“The Free Trap campaign was crazy, like they supported me from time I went to jail to still now.  It’s love, the streets fuck with me, I really got the streets. I was a young nigga when I started rapping at like 21 and got locked up when I was 25, so I kind of missed two years of my life. But now I’m 27 and I’m just on the come up to make up for lost time,” Trap Main said. 

In addition to his support in the streets, Trap Main has earned support on local Jackson, Mississippi radio stations WJMI, 99.7 Jams and WRBJ 97.7, The Beat of the Capital.

“First Day Out is for the fans who supported me while I was locked up. I was locked up 2 years, I was facing 30 years and came back on an appeal. Nigga stayed solid – stuck to da G Code. I just want to keep going and taking it to the highest level I can take it. Staying safe is big because you know rappers are targets. But from there, just take care of my family. Keep some loyal ones around and try to elevate.”

Heavily influenced by losing his cousin and a close collaborator Lil Lonnie, Trap Main is inspired daily by having lost a host of loved ones that were around him in his early 20’s. There’s no question Trap Main feels blessed to be alive and he’s focused on a greater purpose – his music. 

“I got shot two times in the arm when I was 20 years old – i been through the worst of the worst , I could have been dead. My cousin died at 22, I got shot at 20, so I’m just blessed to be alive,” Trap Main explained. “I was locked up when my partner Lil Lonnie died that was a major loss to a lot of people and it still don’t feel real.”

 Dave B. The Prince (@DaveBTP) – “Gang Time”

Today South Central-bred rapper Dave B. the Prince releases his new single “Gang Time.” Touching on the code of the streets and the mackin’ way of life, Dave B. the Prince raps about the life he grew up experiencing in the Jefferson Park area of Los Angeles.

Rapping with an undying dedication since 2007, by 2018 Dave B. The Prince felt he had mastered his craft. From writing on the spot to keeping on topic, Dave had practiced everything from his melodies and pitches to his similes and conjunctions. From vocabulary to the art of understanding people and how they react. Now with a host of material recorded Dave B. the Prince is ready to release his new song, “Gang Time.”

“Gang Time, is something new and fresh and it’s something nobody has ever heard. It’s a mix between some mackin activity and some hatin activities. The person that talk about it the most not really about it. If you start it, finish it strong and if you did some shit, don’t speak about it, you ain’t gotta be nobody’s show pony.” Dave B the Prince said. “I talk a lot of gang shit on there. Thats just the code, that’s just the way of life. I’m not just for me, I’m for my people, my squad and my community. Gangs were started as a way to stand up against the police and to protect the community, so there’s some player stuff mixed in there with the Gang Time”

The song will find a home on Dave B. the Prince’s forthcoming project Death Certificate, which will be his debut project featuring approximately six new songs for the fans.

“The track is going to be on my project Death Certificate. Its my first album, but its crazy that I didn’t even realize, one of the producers on the project told me that Ice Cube’s album was called Death Certificate and it came out in ’91, the year I was born. I didn’t know it, but that matches up and its my baby. Starting off a new decade with a whole new fresh start. The EP is going to drop this Spring, I’d like to give them at least 6 songs.”

Hoping to build upon his performance at the Top Dawg Entertainment Christmas Concert, Dave B. The Prince is looking to start performing more in the coming weeks and months.

“It was beautiful for me man, it was a day to give back to the community and shout out to TDE and Hollywood and PurpleTang Media for booking the show for me. My guy Hollywood connected us and we got it done. There was a line all the way around the block and you had to bring a tour to get in. It went around several blocks and the line was still going. There were like 4-5000 people there,” Dave B. the Prince said.

Adding to his experience on stage rapping Dave B. the Prince, is well versed in the world of dance and incorporates the art form in his music.

“Dance has always been a great way for me to express my art and I feel like its a necessary tool for me when i comes to creative because I come at a song like a dancer and sometimes I come at it on some street shit or sometimes I come at it with my feelings. It gives me another aspect on my music and my dance and so its always going to be something that I always do and so I just gotta stay on it with the moves to give people what they want to see. I’ve learned that fans really do help me and the feedback that I get really helps me. Everyone got haters, but as far as the real fans that give good feedback – that feedback can motivate me to do a full album.”

Part of what separates Dave B. The Prince from his competition is admittedly the fact that he is an Albino rapper, following in the footsteps of Brother Ali and Krondon to name a few.

“I come with constant heat, but the only thing that separates me from everyone else is I don’t look like everyone else. I grew up in the hood and I’m an Albino rapper so I have already been through all the things in life that people throw my way. Really it’s just another life experience or something that I go through. I’m not a quitter and I still always came out on top not matter the obstacle,” Dave B the Prince said. “Just having to start over with the nonsense everywhere I went. There was always someone trying to test me. I never got comfortable. Everywhere I went I had to fight, and so by 7th grade nobody wanted to f*ck with me. Every new school I went to it was a start over again having to defend myself just to be me. So thats how I approach a lot of things like rapping or life in general. ”
