So many artists claim the MIA as their home, but they originate from other states, or even countries. It’s time to find out what a real Miami artist is all about. Being raised in the hood, there was always instances to remind Sleep-Boi GOTIT how bad his situation really was. Poverty, drugs, gangs, these were part of his daily life. No father around, brothers that were in and out of jail, he took it upon himself to be responsible and to take care of his mother and sister. He was just another underprivileged youth. That was until he started really listening to rap music, particularly artists such as The Notorius BIG, Tupac, Nas and others. These artists’ story telling ability and how they used their life experiences triggered something. Their delivery and swagger and of course their lifestyles made Sleep-Boi GOTIT consider music as an avenue to pursue. He wanted to tell his life story, and show how the next generation can accomplish their dreams through God, hard work and faith. With a must win attitude and a lot of sacrifice, Sleep-Boi GOTIT started to make a name for himself. He has established a true fan base, not easy with so much competition. He pays attention to artists like Jay-Z, T.I., Lil Wayne and others on what they are doing and looks to accomplish several goals. One of these is creating his own corporations to include music, fashion, television, food and more. When not on his grind, Sleep-Boi GOTIT is either on the basketball court, taking in the latest movie, or at his favorite Caribbean or soul food restaurant. Because of how he was raised, he is also a true family man, spending time with loved ones as often as possible. It’s 2013, and new breeds of hip hop artists are emerging. You’ll hear the name Sleep-Boi GOTIT for years to come!!”

Young and Educated: Kevin

This week we had Kevin from Young and Educated tell us a little bit about the group. They will be releasing their first mixtape as a group on February 26th, 2013. They were formed back in 2011 with just Kevin and J.T. They later added a few more members and have been building on the team since then. Their name originated because they are all young in their early twenties. They are also all in school and working towards bigger things. When it comes to the music they all jump off of each and have come to consider each other family. Kevin says, “They’re all like my brothers and Kenza is like my sister. They have two singers on the team one female and one male.
The members include Kavi, JT the Jesta, Element, Bastien, Kenza and Kevin. They all rap except Kenza whom is a singer alongside Bastien. Kevin’s main focus is to manage the group but he also raps and is featured on the mixtape. They are all featured on their single titled The Team, which you can listen to on their sound cloud.
They have several mixtapes already out but this is the first time they have all been featured on one. This is the cultivation of all their talents and their introduction into the music scene as a group. They got the idea of doing a mixtape from a meeting they had with a website called we do it for the love of music. During their meeting the idea of a compilation mixtape came up. The reasoning behind it was that each person would push their own music more than their counterparts. They will all promote of course but will promote more when it comes to a project that focuses on them. So instead why not have a project that everyone is on and everyone will push it just as hard.
The mixtape is titled “The Mind of a Young and Educated” and has been in the works for quite some time now. Kevin says that this mixtape showcases some of the most talent artist in the area and is a true representation of the group. You can find it on Hot New Hip Hop and Datpiff on February 26th.
