infectiously Optimistic: Meet Rapper Noah Wright

“I can fit into any role I can see myself in,” he says adamantly. “It’s just a matter of preparation and timing.“

Phoenix, Arizona, rapper Noah Wright—aka Daddy Fat Staxxx aka Phoenix The Misfit—was initially born in Iowa. “I’m cooling in the devil’s backyard,” he tells AAHH with a laugh. “I write music, balance my chakras, enjoy long walks to the bank, and occasionally getting caught up in some ratchet shit.”

“My music is life man.” he says when asked about his influences. “I’m inspired by my experiences, my family, friends, even my enemies … I feel have a message to give.” That message he’s describing finds its way into his music. “I just find the beat that I feel fits that conversation vibe the best,” he continues. “Almost like watching a movie on mute then choosing what you feel fits that scene best, but you are the creator and director of the whole operation.”

He fondly recalls how it al started when his family moved to Las Vegas. “I moved to [Vegas], and I met my friend Chris. He told me he was rapping and had a studio in his garage. One day I decided to check it out … it’s been on and popping ever since.”

When asked what he’s dropped so far, he laughs and states “Not enough,” before explaining, “I have too many songs that I create, maybe get halfway through and stash to revisit later but later rarely comes. As far as this year, I’ve dropped two singles and my tape Love, Noah.”

“I still got a long ways to go,” he says laying out his two-year plan to us. “I’ll tell my people about more as I wrap things up. Currently, I’m working on my next tape, two music videos, and upcoming performances.”

Among his most significant career achievements to date, he fondly cites meeting the legendary Rakim and opening up for him, and premiering—and selling out—a short film with his director Tony Kure. “We premiered it at Arizona Mills Mall and sold out,” he says. “It was wild yo.”

“My goal used to be to find a label, but at this point, I’ve given up on that desire,” he explains, noting that he wants to achieve financial stability independently. “[I want] my music to help me sustain the life I’m living now.”

Noah is on an ascent, and his confidence is infectious. “I can fit into any role I can see myself in,” he says adamantly. “It’s just a matter of preparation and timing.”

Director Myster DL Chats About His New Cypress Hill Documentary

Myster DL, rapper and trusted video director who has an excellent portfolio of over 250 videos with acts like Redman, Sean Price, Styles P, Chuck D, Cormega, and more, recently dropped a new documentary about Cypress Hill, a group he fondly credits for helping him to make Hip Hop himself.

The Haunted Hill Documentary was filmed in one night in Boston, Massachusetts, at the legendary House of Blues. “I worked on the edit for a few days and sent a few drafts over to the guys and management,” DL tells AAHH. “They do a three-day tour annually—and I usually catch a couple of those shows.”

“Earlier this year I had released a video for Cypress Hill’s Eric Bobo, and we are always planning our next project,” he continues. “We are in the process of possibly doing a few music videos for the band.”

As DL explains, he’s been aquatinted with the iconic group for over a decade. “I’ve known B-Real the longest; I met him in roughly 2004 while living—and DJing—in Miami. I made an edited version of his Gunslinger Mixtape and sent it to him via AOL instant messenger. He was grateful and said if I ever needed anything to contact him.”

At first, DL didn’t take the open invitation seriously. “I just thought this was something people say and took a chance and asked him for a verse,” he recalls. “Within two hours I had an email and acappella. I put the verse on my iPod Nano and walked around listening to it for three weeks. We did a song together in 2004, and that blossomed into a cool relationship with the whole crew.”

“I have a song with B Real, Sticky Fingaz, Rockness Monsta and Kool G Rap that will premier on the soundtrack of my next film,” DL says proudly. “Cypress Hill inspired me to make music which eventually turned into a successful film career, so its a trip to even know them.”

According to DL, this is his most significant project to date. “It’s my first documentary film; however I do have a series of short documentaries called “Rewind The Scenes” where I look back at the making of some of my biggest music videos,” he explains.

The Haunted Hill Documentary is a must-watch for any Cypress fan; check it out below.

“My music is just different. It’s a new soundscape, new melodies, a new flow and a fresh face.”-Marcylis

It’s been a while since we’ve received a fresh, attractive, young male R&B singer that caters to the soul. Marcylis is a 21 year old serenader hailing from Atlanta, GA, working towards his anticipated reality–R&B superstar. With already having dropped singles such as “Gang,” “Doing The Most,” and his first single “My Girl,” Marcylis has collectively gained attention–accumulating over 47.3k plays on SoundCloud and 3.7k followers on Instagram. Showing much potential in his craft and brand, I found it only right that I interview him and introduce him to the AAHH family. Read more below.

An Interview with RnB Singer Marcylis

AC: When did you decide that football wasn’t your passion, but singing was?

M: I decided sports wasn’t the route I wanted to take when I had made the decision to move to Atlanta, at that point I knew I wanted to do something different, take another route.

AC: I read that you’re from Cincinnati, but now reside in Atlanta, did you find better opportunity for stardom there (since that’s everyone’s perception of ATL)?

M: I’m not really a geographical type of person my advice to anyone pursuing a dream or goal is to build a team of people in your field of interest, start there, and if you can’t leave from where your at then do it at home, do it from where your at. But do it at your BEST and make sure it’s a good listening experience that people can relate to, and or vibe to.

AC: Who are some of your musical inspirations or influences? Why?

 M: Some of my musical influences are artists like Jagged Edge, Omarion, Jodeci, New Edition, and R. Kelly. I could relate to their music and they gave off good vibes–something you would listen to on repeat. I would say Drake and Chris Brown… but my inspiration truly comes from life experiences and my environment.

AC: Walk me through the creative process when writing your music or recording a song?

M: First I hum to find a melody, then I start to freestyle with the flow of the beat. Once I find the rhythm and the melody, I put words next to them.

An Interview with RnB Singer Marcylis

AC: In today’s music, no one really has one sound any more. What would you describe your “sound” to be like?

M: My music is just different. It’s a new soundscape, new melodies, a new flow and a fresh face.

AC: I read that you come from a musical family who has always surrounded you with the musical tools needed. Was your family always supportive of your decision to pursue music?

M: Yes my family loves music and has always been supportive.

AC: Who do you dream of working with in the music industry?

M: It would be dope to work with Drake, Chris Brown, Bryson Tiller, SZA, Her, Ella, Justine Skye and PartyNextDoor.

AC: You’re planning on dropping project, ‘820′ Where did the concept for this title come from? It looks like a date, if so why THIS date?

M: August 20th is my birthday. So every event from that day I was born that I can remember, up until today–I am going to make a career off of reminiscing.

AC: What are some of your favorite tracks from the project and why?

M: The whole project.

AC: In today’s music industry, artists have found ways to build their brand other than music, such as dabbling in the fashion industry, producing and acting. What avenues do you see yourself going into, besides music?

M: I’m also an actor, so winning a few Oscar awards and Best New Breakout Actor are on my bucket list. Along with starring in big major movies and on television. I also want to jump into the virtual world and design a few video games… making big major moves to broaden myself as a brand. An Interview with RnB Singer Marcylis

AC: What do you think about the state of Hip Hop right now? Especially being a singer trying to break into the game.

M: The state of Hip Hop is always changing, so be UNIQUE.

AC: Are you looking to get signed or do you believe in taking the independent route, like many artists out right now?

M: If it makes sense and looks good who knows.

AC: What is next for Marcylis?

M: I will be finishing out 2017 going into production, set to film a movie. I will be dropping my album “820” and pushing a few other singles; Problems, My Girl, Working So Hard, and Replay along with filming music videos. Word on the streets is a Jodeci biopic is reportedly coming to VH1 this year and I had a huge social media buzz to play the lead singer, Dalvin.

MTV Star P.Muna Preps His Official Project, ‘1991’

“I’m an artist that’s here to stay.” –P.Muna

Not many artists get the kind of opportunity afforded to 27-year-old P.Muna. The New Yorker — born Prosper Mbongue-Muna — earned a healthy base of fans appearing as a cast member on MTV’s Are You The One?. “It was a crazy experience,” he tells AAHH. “One of the craziest experiences of my life … I was chilling with a bunch of beautiful women and got to make some money at the ends, so that’s always nice.”

The experience, aside from putting his face out there, allowed him to leverage red carpet situations, and connect some critical dots. “It was just a great outlet,” he continues. “It was different you know … it wasn’t [really] a ‘Hip Hop culture’ outlet.” He quickly adds, “at the same time my music is more universal.”

His music has heaps of crossover appeal. He only just recently popped into my radar with his visual “Game,” which was included in our #aahhtop5weekly round-up earlier this month. The track, along with his other new track, “Vice City,” are both slated to appear on his brand new project, 1991, which — although being touted on blogs as far back as late 1996, is dropping in the next month or so.

“I’m working on a project called 1991,” Muna explains, “the year I was born. I’m speaking to the generation, you know, everybody from the nineties, or around that era. Just representing.”

Eyes and ears are definitely on the kid, especially with a track record of opening/sharing stages with big names like Snoop Dogg and 2 Chainz — among others. But pressure is nothing; his dizzying amount of grind is looking like it’s about to pay off.

“I got to shoot a music video [last week] for one of my new songs called Pull Up … I am very excited about that,” he tells us. “Just working man, that’s where I’m at right now.”

Something is intriguing about his story — which mirrors the all-American Dream. He went to New York with just over $100 in his pocket and a dream of making in this industry.

“I just want to let people know I’m an artist that’s here to stay,” he tells us before hopping off of the phone call, “that’s what’s up.” He just dropped a remix of the Childish Gambino hit, “Redbone.” You can check That out, below. His new video, “Pull Up,” drops on September 1st.
