On Wednesday August 14thKing of Diamonds hosted Summer Jam artist showcase. The event was suppose to start at 9pm but the first artist did not get on stage until almost 11pm. For this event artist paid a hefty fee in order to perform in front of record labels. It was held in the famous King of Diamonds Gentlemen’s club which I an enormous warehouse space. They house the best exotic dancers and are known for celebrity appearances. Several performers were ill prepared but some really did pull out all the stops. There were many performers who flew in from out of state for this event and their opportunity to network with the top A&Rs.

Deejay X Seven

This week Melly Starz interviews a well-known deejay, Deejay X Seven. He started his career as a deejay when he was shown a program called Virtual dj. He wasn’t taking it seriously but still did private events and was the official deejay for a local rapper. What really inspired Deejay X Seven to take things seriously was his son. While in the womb his son was very responsive to the music that X Seven would play. Now he is a constant reminder for X Seven to keep moving forward and working hard. Which he definitely has. He has worked at a wide array of clubs such as Mekka, Kaffé Krystal, Café Bodegita, Nocturnal, KCafe, and even Skyline among many others.

Digi: An Innovative Emcee


No Comments

This week I got the chance to interview an innovative emcee called Digi from Full Pound Records and Uptown. Music has always been a part of his life. His father had a studio called the “Dub Lab.” So Digi would always go to the studio right after school. This is where he had the opportunity to meet several different artists. He felt as though he connected to the beat before he connected to the words and this is how he got into producing.  He always had a knack for music and could learn lyrics within a day. He also has the unique ability to write and keep his lyrics in his head.
