Bean-town artist Shaney Poo has lived all over the place–and, as a bi-product, his music is dripping with life experience and interesting perspective. He refers to his style of music B.L.A.C POP, an acronym for “Becuz Love Always Conquers,” and has a small but enjoyable track list of content already making the online rounds.

He spent a good portion of 2016 putting in work, releasing two EPs, Touched By An Angel and the –seemingly contrasting–SkumBag King, released in March and December, respectively. The projects are a mixtures of elements that don’t necessarily prescribe to any single genre or lane– interesting listens.

His latest release is a visual for the record “Girl Next Door,” wich appeared on Touched By An Angel. Give the visual a spin below and check out his catalog on Bandcamp!

With flashy cars as the backdrop and with the rest of the Lane Gang alongside, Big 24 BackDoor drips onto the scene with authority in his fresh new visual.

“They call me Big Duece, Big 24, Backdoor. The Lane is Bedford Whiteside and Chauncey, we were like a music group that we called Money Lane. When we started trying to push little things here and there, I wasn’t taking it too seriously but then when Wop passed I wanted to keep his name alive. Wop was the best out of Pittsburgh ever. Lane Gang for ever. Thats all I’m doing, I’m just trying to hold Wop down,” Big 24 BackDoor said.

“We still on the Lane everyday and we help out the kids and try to contribute to the community to help,” Big 24 BackDoor said about life in Pittsburgh. “No cap the way they rap out here, the shi* is hard. We like gangsta rap a lot out here, but I like the drip and mu’fuckas with they own style. They own shit, like they don’t try to copy nobody.”

In the coming weeks the Lane Gang will continue to put out visuals from BackDoor and his most recent project.

“I got another video coming soon and we gonna drop that in the next few weeks too,” BackDoor added. “I’m looking for more shows out of town and I’m trying to keep dropping.

@StreetLord_Rook – “UGH”

Today Street Lord Rook delivers his new music video for the song “UGH.” Having survived a bid behind bars as a member to one of Detroit’s most notorious underground empires, the Street Lords are what Detroit rappers of this generation acknowledge in their raps as the founders of Detroit’s well known underground rap scene.
From customized diamond and platinum detailed Cartier shades to full outfits in designer gear, the Detroit rap scene was molded in part by the Street Lords are the most known underground rap group in Detroit.who displayed an unprecedented amount of wealth for street rappers in the 90’s and 2000’s.

“You know the grind on getting on radio here is an uphill battle, but our Detroit scene is poppin now with Big Sean, Sada Baby, Tee Grizzley and others. Really streaming and strip clubs, that’s where the real Detroit rappers can be heard.” StreetLord Rook said. “The StreetLords to this day are the most known underground rap group out of Detroit, period. The records came out 20 years ago and they still goin up today in the club. We was making millions of dollars in the streets and living like rap stars and doing all the shit rappers were doing and it was real and so people respected it. The sound you hear with Sean and Grizzley and SadaBaby, they got the StreetLord feel to it and they show us love, but you can hear the influence in their music. We kinda set the trend and they keeping it going”

Often times when you are dealing with a rapper that is this closely tied to the streets, unfortunately a different kind of message is sent to the youth. But StreetLord Rook brings an infectious sound to fans with “UGH”, with a visual that everyone can relate to regardless of being young or old. As depicted in the short acting scenes that lead into the song,StreetLord Rook has a different message for the youth.

“I don’t want to say I’m OG like I’m old, but all the young kids today doing videos where they in front of liquor stores, where they got some drugs and guns and if you really lived that life, thats some shit you kinda don’t want to be doing,” StreetLord Rook explained. “So I wanted to bring a side to the game where, like let’s make this a little more entertaining. Because it’s real. I’m tired of the extra niggas and I’m tired of the extra hoes and I’m just sick of all the extra shit, where its like UGH, just like the song. So we just pushing people in it to where we can get our point across.”

Featured on his album Life After the Feds, StreetLord Rook touches on a wide range of sounds as he hopes to give Rap fans something authentic and real.

“This gonna teach you how to make money and how to make it out of the hood to live a good life,” StreetLord Rook said. “I just try to be real and I think that’s what music lacks. Selling all these kids false hopes and dreams, running off on the plug and doing all these drugs and stuff. It ends up hurting people long term and affecting families. You run off on the plug, you’ll mess around and get killed. You do all that lean and percs and drugs and you gonna be some junior junkies four, five years down the road because they got an opiate addiction. It sounds cool when the rappers say it, but it’s really some bullshit. Like where I come from when you get money you don’t do drugs, that’s crack head shit if you do that.”

Chianti – “They Don’t Know”

Today East Texas bred rapper Chianti releases his new single, “They Don’t Know.” Using his poetic words over classic Texas sounding production, Chianti uses his music as a therapeutic way to cope with the trials and tribulations of his life.

“I have always been a poet and whenever I wrote something and said it out loud it made me feel better, so I use that for therapy. I saw guys putting music to their poetry and as I started doing that, I started reciting it to my peers and I started to express myself and just went with it,” Chianti said. “Music-wise I mess with the music scene in Dallas, I am from Marshall, TX but I go do my music in Dallas, so as far as the music scene goes, I’m on that scene and the majority of my life I spent a lot of time in Dallas and that’s the music scene that I can speak on. East Texas is the community that I’m a part of right now.

From three stints jail to a nearly fatal car accident, Chianti uses his experiences throughout life to paint a poetic picture of the situations he raps about so that he can find his way through the problems of life.

“It’s the therapy side of it, it’s my outlet. A lot of things that I want to do I am limited by my actions and I feel like if I can talk about it or express it verbally, I can do it. It’s like action, I’m not doing it, but it feels like I’m releasing anger and releasing tension. It takes me from where I am to a whole ‘nother place. I guess it’s a high man. If I get pissed off about something I’m gonna address the situation. I’m gonna talk about it and I feel better when I do that,” Chianti explained.

“There have been a few near death experiences that I went through and a lot of trauma. I’ve been locked up and wrote a lot in prison. I got in a wreck and I almost died. When I came out of that car wreck, I found out I went to sleep and hit a car on the shoulder and I hit my head on the windshield and they had to reconstruct my face.”

Continuing to draw from real life experiences, Chianti’s new single “They Don’t Know,” addresses the frauds and fakes in the music industry. Inspired by a time when a fraudulent promoter got away with some of his money, Chianti knows that he can’t risk time behind bars over a small amount of money.

“They Don’t Know – was inspired by this music industry. I was dealing with this guy and he had ran off with some money and it was some little money. But it’s just what I have done to people for wayyy less than that. It was someone who ran off with some money and they didn’t do what they said they was gonna do. It was the principal and my thing was bro – I done been to prison three times. I can’t send my whole team to war over a piece of change over something like that and so I came up with the song,” Chianti reasoned.

In anticipation of his upcoming project in September, Chianti says this project is for real music fans and is “square business.”

“In the industry today its one of the realest projects that’s gonna come out as far real music. Everything I say in there is for real, it’s nothing in there that’s entertainment. I did it, I’m doing it. It’s square business, everything is square business about this album man. I’m just after a core group of people that just like real music. My experiences, it’s a lot of Hard Feelings and all my feelings I’m just releasing it,” Chianti added. “You got a lot of guys that are coming out of Dallas that are product of a sound that’s been developing for years and there’s a sound that has finally been perfected. These guys are reaping the benefits of a sound that these producers and engineers have put together over years and years of making music. If you have your stuff together image wise and you got your mind right with the proper financial backing, its a nice time to be around. Dallas is extremely saturated with artists, East Texas has some artists out here too though and that’s where I’m coming out of.”

Erreon – “Check Way” (Prod by Jayanalog)

Today rising Texas rapper Erreon drops the visual to his song “Checkway ” from his upcoming EP Better Late Than Never.

While some Hip-Hop fans might not be familiar with the term, “checkway,” Erreon defines the word as, “living by a limitless mentality,” and he does just that in the visual.

Kicking off the Jeff Adair directed visual by jumping in a helicopter for aerial views of Dallas, Erreon makes his way across the country visiting Bun B in Houston and eventually making his way out to Los Angeles where he walks the beaches of Venice with a few ladies.

Erreon explained, “Checkway is a single off the project that talks about me enjoying some of the fruits of my labor by living by a limitless mindset.”

It’s only fitting the visual depicts Erreon in a trip around the country as he will be performing at club dates nationwide in June and July. In June Erreon hits Las Vegas, Phoenix, LA, and San Diego for various spot club dates at which point he will perform at Houston Holiday June 27th, and then a spot date on July 14th in El Paso, TX.

Who could have predicted that Erreon’s budding career would kick off with a response record after a fellow classmate dissed him in 9th grade with a song on CD? From there combined with a big influence from Jay-Z, Erreon has used the ups and downs of life to motivate people to win through his music.

“The best is yet to come, I promise always to motivate, inspire and be the voice of the people – so let’s take this ride together!” Erreon said in a message to his fans. .

Going forward in preparation for the Better Late Than Never EP, fans can listen to his tracks “Nobody Knows” and “Locked In,” which were previously released leading up to the release of the project.
