RAPPER OGPD DROPS HIS SECOND MIXTAPE “MPR” OUT NOW

Published

on

Rapper Deshawn Williams Aka OGPD has released his second mixtape “MPR” out now! Born and raised in The Bronx, New York, he is self-made and is in the up-and-coming stages of his career. He currently isn’t associated with any labels but is always open to hearing a pitch from a record label. He describes his image as a “Fly Caribbean from The Bronx with down south ties.” OGPD lives by two mottos, “Stay true to yourself and don’t change for anyone else” and “Tough times don’t last, but people do.”

His musical inspiration came from his father, who was a DJ in the mid-’90s. Being exposed to music at a young age spiked his interest in the inner workings of music, where he found out he had a great ear for it. OGPD’s target audience is everyone but hopes to reach a younger demographic to motivate and inspire. After learning the industry inside and out behind the scenes, he is now taking his craft to the public. His short-term goal is to make “1050” greater than what it currently is, long-term he hopes to have it become worldwide. Although he has solely been working with his 1050 team right now, OGPD tells us he is open to collaborating with different artists in the future. 

In the next five years, OGPD hopes to become a mogul while continuing his work within his community. “Without the community, there is no me. We are products of our environments, and if we can help clean and rebuild our communities, we can better our future,” says OGPD, showing us that change starts from within and he is here to help make those changes. When he isn’t in the studio, he loves to work out and stay active and believes the best advice he can give to the youth who want to pursue a career in music is that “Anything is Possible!” Platforms like Power 105, 808wave, Genius, and more have featured OGPD in the past. To reach OGPD or follow up with his latest music, you can find him on Instagram: @_ogpd_ or email him directly at ogpdtct@gmail.com.

Shown 1K, a native of Alabama, has dropped off Stackaveli, a much awaited project. This ten-track album is chock-full of harmonic flows, metaphoric bars, and brilliant punch lines that will have listeners reaching for the repeat button. Stackaveli is Shown 1K’s method of commenting about actual events involving hustling, trapping, and expressing his rebirth as an artist, and is inspired by Tupac Shakur’s classic Makaveli album.

“I had never published any music before this project. By releasing Stackaveli, I felt like I was reborn,” Shown 1K said in a recent interview. “I understood I had a gift to support my family when I learned how much my music touched other people.”

“Damaged Healer (VooDo Lady),” the album’s lead track, has been generating a lot of talk since its release, and it’s accompanied with an exciting video that showcases Shown 1K’s ingenuity as a rapper:

Shown 1K tells Remixd Magazine that his favorite tracks on Stackaveli are “Intro” and “Outro,” despite “Damaged Healer (VooDo Lady)” being a lyrical masterpiece.

“I feel like it’s very important how you arrive and leave on albums,” Shown1k says. “I will always give everything in my body of work and leave on a good note.”

Shown 1K, who is now situated in Atlanta, Georgia, has huge aspirations for the future. The rapper also stated that he has four other albums in his music vault, indicating that he has no plans to cease creating music anytime soon. “The dates are TBA for my next four albums,” he remarked. “I’m hoping for a smooth release of these CDs since it’s past time for the world to learn who Shown 1K is. My major objective is to be noticed, to build a name for myself, and to assist other musicians in my situation.”

Shown 1K’s metaphorical lyricism and uniqueness in his work surely contribute to his objective of making a good impact in the business. This artist wishes to convey the following message to his fans:

“Keep down, stay focused, and never give up on your aspirations because tomorrow is a new day, and as an artist, never restrict your creativity,” says Shown 1K.

Johnny Quest The Rebel Drops “Blue Diamonds” ft. Cruch Calhoun

Published

By

Trenton-born rising artist Johnny Quest joins forces with New Jersey hip-hop stars for a “Clash of the Titans.” Blue Diamonds, a collaboration between The Rebel and acclaimed rapper Cruch Calhoun (Roselle, NJ), is one of the state’s most intriguing recent collabs.

With the year drawing to a close, Quest has decided to bring in the new year on FIRE, guaranteeing that anybody who observes it realizes that New Jersey is totally immersed in the hip-hop culture. He promptly returned to the studio after releasing his latest EP, Money Dreamz, in May (getting a BET Jams placement and features in publications such as Flaunt Magazine and All Hip Hop). “Blue Diamonds,” his follow-up, is a verbal checklist for determining if you have the “glow,” even before others see it in you.

“Blue Diamonds” is a self-reflection, a reminder to everyone who listen that pressure and experience are what shape us into diamonds. Quest immerses listeners in his film with to rising star producer Fatir’s cinematic style production. They’re putting themselves in the shoes of a celebrity just before his meteoric ascent to stardom. While Blue Diamonds is a narrative, it’s also a warning shot, foreshadowing a long-awaited merger of North and South Jersey. Cruch Calhoun, a well-known artist and regular Dave East collaborator, contributes an OG viewpoint in a scary verse, giving the song a new flavor.

Quest has began to establish himself as one of New Jersey’s rising stars with his recent albums. He continues to shine brightly as a rising star with “Blue Diamonds.”
