Tunezzup! - Race, Marginalization, Nuance, NJ Artists, Drake's Negative Impact, Microplastics and Much More

This is a once-in-4-years podcast. Buckle up.  There are artists who primarily focus on the craft, then there are artists who stand for and enact social change on top of what they do in the booth. Tunez does not only speak it in the music, but he’s fighting for something bigger than himself each chance he gets, and today only made that clearer.   Tunezzup! is a rapper, songwriter, and producer from Newark, New Jersey. His undeniable bars leave you running back each track attempting to analyze the underlying message. His cadence is dialed-in, refined, and consistent on each record.  Follow Tunez - https://www.instagram.com/tunezzup/ Stream Bare Witness (New) - https://open.spotify.com/album/6EaiqGvO6jkOe33xt8beWK?si=1oP_VbH6SVS-k4_85D-d2g Please enjoy this wide-ranging conversation and use the timestamps below to navigate.  (1:46) - The effects of being raised by women, fatherlessness, and mom love vs dad love.  (13:37)- The death of nuance and lack of leadership in New Jersey. (26:01) - The 2 reasons New Jersey artists don’t get any representation from New Jersey gatekeepers, are the one state they represent instead, and the alleged movement space cover-up.  (30:36) - Samad Savage is doing artists a favor in New Jersey, what it takes to go full-time with music and why everybody wants to be signed.  (35:06) - The fundamental difference between the old music scene and today and why brand matters. Lupe Dragon vs the next big thing.  (39:06) - It’s not about being great anymore. The label bait and switch. If Kanye wasn’t good. And why we have to hate the game, not the player?  (43:56) - Alessia Cara is our celebrity crush and why she was successful. Pop doesn’t have a problem, hiphop does. And the real reason Juice WRLD rapped about drugs and why Tunez producer can’t leave Russia.  (50:54) -  Why Tunez got shadowbanned on IG, the real reason the FBI showed up at Samad’s door, and are people actually watching me?  (53:46) - The bigger picture of Tunez Instagram ban.  (01:00:46) - What made Tupac money ended up getting him killed, if Elvis ripped off Ellie May Thorton, and sampling.  (01:03:10) - Drake's negative impact on culture and the system that made it possible.  (01:10:15) - It’s about the business, not the art. Are we bots yet?   (01:12:08) - We are filled with microplastics, specifically phthalates and how led paint caused universal.  (01:13:32) - Phthalates make your taint smaller and decrease your sperm count.  (01:17:16) - Tunez would do this to your girlfriend if you’re a self-proclaimed alpha. (we died)  (01:20:31) -  The gender war is a result of a lack of standards. James Harden taking a pay cut is noble. Rappers only purchase liabilities.  (01:26:14) - Finding a job that you love is difficult and how Tunez left Chick Fil A  (01:33:22) - Seneca Falls and marginalized groups. My uncle got harassed for being gay in the 80s and now they use it for social clout.  (01:41:14) - The future of Tunezzup! and the extermination of the strong.  Thank you for helping us become a top 10% podcast in the world!

Aarvee - Why Dads Pick Fights, Solicited Dick Pics, 2 Uber Cigs, the Tinder Swindler, and Why Gary Vee Likes Drug Dealers

Aarvee is an artist, songwriter, and producer originally from New Jersey. His precise, hand-crafted hard-hitting bars have transitioned into effortless hooks with undertones of a deeper meaning on each track. His newest song, “morefiend” brings a smooth, guitar-laden backtrack that fits perfectly with his wide backing vocals on the hook. Artists are dynamic. Most podcasters won't take the chance on them because they're 'unpredictable', but that's an excuse to mask the fact that they can't match their energy. Today was unpredictable in the best way possible. From Qanon to drunks fights, to tinder horror stories to the best drunk cigs, you name it, we got into it today.  https://songwhip.com/aarvee-3/morefiend (Stream ‘morefeiend’) Thank you for helping us become a top 10% podcast in the world!

Young Benny [1 Yr. Later] - Dedicating Your Life to the Craft, Writing Bangers, and Separating Friends from Business
Young Benny [1 Yr. Later] - Dedicating Your Life to the Craft, Writing Bangers, and Separating Friends from Business

Young Benny is a rapper, songwriter, lyricist, and performer. He's dedicated his life to the craft, and it's tough to remove his hard-hitting and effortless hooks from your head after only one listen. On stage, he carries a swagger that comes with years, but for Benny, it seems ingrained: natural. In this episode, we dive into Benny's aspirations as an artist, his decision to remain dedicated and seek even larger goals, and his falling out with team members that left him questioning who was (and still is) by his side. As artists know, music is cut-throat. It's easy to get caught up in the present to forego future success. We dive into the details today, and I share my own experience working with my team for the last 2 years. https://open.spotify.com/album/0lVh8CIb1JYClq6KjZGAJp?si=ue3PCOOBSPO7ph6QGkDIGA (Stream Benny's Latest SIngle Strawberry) (featured in the intro) https://www.instagram.com/1youngbenny/ (Follow Benny on IG) https://youtu.be/S25B3yS2TUQ (Watch his Latest Music Video ) Thank you for helping us become a top 10% podcast in the world!
