Gucci Mane faces federal gun charges

Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane was again in court Tuesday, this time facing federal gun possession charges.

The local hip hop star, whose real name is Radric Davis, was arraigned before a federal judge on two counts of gun possession by a convicted felon.

Davis, 33, is accused of displaying two different loaded handguns and acting erratically twice in September, both incidents occurring within days of one another, prosecutors said.

“We are actively reviewing the discovery (of evidence federal and local authorities have in the case),” Davis’ attorney Drew Findling said.

According to the federal indictments, on Sept. 12, Davis had a Taurus 45-caliber handgun and eight rounds of ammunition. Days later on Sept. 14, the indictment claims he was in possession of a Glock 40-caliber handgun and 11 rounds of ammunition.

If convicted on each count, Davis faces up to 20 years in federal prison and fines up to $500,000, court officials said.

He has been convicted twice, once in Fulton County in 2005 for assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault, and again in Dade County, Fla., that same year for possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, according to court documents.

Davis will be detained until his trial, but it is unclear whether DeKalb County Jail officials will relinquish custody to federal officials. He has been in the DeKalb facility since a Sept. 14 arrest.

Fulton County authorities have a hold on Davis for a probation violation from a March arrest on assault charges.

His next federal court hearing is scheduled for early January, Findling said.

Rap Artist “A-BLOCK”

Image

A-Block is the Co-Chief Executive Officer of Black City Hustla Records LLC and also is a musician based out of Germany. While growing up, music has always been apart of his life and will always be in it. His rap career was set to start, when he was rapping to one of his favorite songs, and a random guy attention was caught by A-Block’s skills. He told A-Block that his delivery was so great, that he should become a rapper. A-Block questioned himself and felt so confident that he started his journey to become one of the best musicians to come out of the Germany area.

Around late 2007, A-Block was on Myspace listening to songs and also networking with a few artist. He ran into another musician by the name of Joshua Davis (Tony Tone Montana). Him and Tony Tone talked for hours and formed a tight friendship, which led him a position in Black City Hustla Records LLC.

A-Block is on a mission for success and will not let nothing come in his way to get it. What sets him apart from other musicians, is that he brings not only his story to the game but also tell stories that his fans can relate. The songs that he produces, not only influences others to the point where they cry, but also to where they think that they are the ones who are spitting the lyrics. He also shows his sense of humor and is not afraid to show or tell what he is feeling. He writes music to express his feelings, in a positive way, instead of committing crimes.

In conclusion, A-Block hopes that his songs can help others, whenever they are feeling down, to let them know they’re not alone. He encourages everyone to be true to themselves and also if they have a dream, make them come to reality.

Slumping Outta Huntsville Alabama “Dynomite Kid”

Image

Dynomite Kid has been making a huge impact on the music scene in the south.  His catchy records, passion and talent all make for an interesting artist.  Although his music is nothing less than amazing, the man behind the beat is even more so.
Although you may know him as Dynomite Kid, his family and friends know him as “L-Jay”.  Lajers Wheeler’s life began in Mullins, SC on September 1,1983.  His childhood was complex.  In the small town of Mullins where everybody knows everybody, his father was the main attraction.  Although he was giving his family the good life by means of hustling, there were secrets inside their household.  Lajers had a great father, but he was not a good husband.  Infidelity and physical abuse got the best of his parents relationship.  After the split of his mother and father at age 6, Lajers and his siblings moved to Hunstville, Alabama.  Their now single mother was struggling to make ends meet, working 2-3 jobs at a time.  Lajers and his small family bounced around from one project housing to the next.  Although his life was crazy this obviously inspired Lajers because at the ripe age of 12, he began writing.
Throughout the years of trials and tribulations he learned that writing turned into more of a coping mechanism to release the stressors of daily life.  Writing gave him a sense of freedom that he could not find anywhere else; a sense of sanity.  Although this was an outlet, the stress was too much for this young dreamer.  Between the divorce, moving, lack of financial support and dismissive father, by the age of 15 he was kicked out of the house, school and landed himself in prison by 17.
Although being sent to prison was a volatile time in his life, it did not stop him from getting knocked with another 3 year sentence just shortly after.  During his time in prison he learned that all of his “mingling on the streets” was not worth it.    Through family deaths and friends losing their lives, he had a bit of a wake up call.  Even when everyone around him didn’t believe in him, his grandmother did.  She never judged him for his past, all she wanted was for him to be successful and happy.  Lajers used this as motivation to make it.  Now that his grandmother is gone, he always remembers her inspiring words.Image
Music was always calling his name throughout those turbulent years.  Dynomite Kid’s story is truly a testament to any young boy who is trying to follow their dreams.
Through his music, he wants to show the world that you can do what he did.  “If you are still here today and you’ve been through anything, you can change and make a difference. Shake it off. I’m a criminal, it’s hard to get a job, I’m a felon, I know.  It’s hard to do anything unless you make it yourself”, He says. He hopes that by sharing his story with young dreamers like he once was, that they can steer away from making mistakes ahead of time.  “Being a thug is not what’s cool anymore”, he says.  He has been through it, he knows where you have been and he knows how to get you out of it.
Throughout all of his struggles , successes and failures he has learned that life is too short and is now on a hell-bent mission to make it.  With inspirations such as Wu-Tang Clan, Billy Ocean, Cameo and KRS One, you know his music has got to be a mix of greatness.  Everything in his life from his children to his fans drives him to keep making great records.  He will continue to use his music to inspire the ones who were alone just as he was at one time.  Hopefully you can use Dynomite Kid’s music as your outlet.

Cincinnati’s Own “SHOWTIME”

Image

SHOWTIME

Born Dante’ Griffin in the inner-city of Cincinnati, OH. Being raised in a single parent household by his mother like most he became a product of his environment. His involvement in the “street life” came at an early age when he had to fend for himself. At the age of 16 he began selling drugs and committing robberies to make ends meet. Although he had a wonderful talent he never took it serious until his older brother caught wind of the foolish things he was doing. Afraid that his little brother would end up dead or in jail he became more involved in showing him a way out. Realizing that he could utilize his god given talent that was passed down from his father to make a better life for him and his family he began to take it all in and became very serious about a career in the music industry. Although he was still involved in the street life he wasn’t as deep as once before. He soon became a house hold name emerging from the rap battle circuit in Cincinnati. He then went to battle and win against the national artist “THE GAME” in hopes of a recording contract with “THE GAME” but it was nothing but broken promises. Frustrated he embarked on a journey that would give him national attention against “THE GAME”. He soon was on the local radio one station 100.9 the wiz (now known as 101.1 the wiz) with hits such as “GO HARD OR GO HOME” “CINCINNATI HAT” and “STAND YA GROUND”. He began to open up for every major artist in every major club that would come into town to perform from SCARFACE, DTP, 50 CENT, G-UNIT, JADAKISS, THE LOX, LIL SCRAPY, SHAWTY LO, YOUNG JEEZY, GUCCIE MANE, and RICK ROSS. That soon got him the attention of the powerful Cincinnati based record label GARNETT entertainment owned by ALEX GARNETT. That led to his most powerful hit “CHEVY SITTIN LIKE A MONSTER” which caused him to perform at “U.S BANK ARENA” with the likes of YOUNG JEEZY, LIL WAYNE, JIM JONES, and FAT JOE. Once propositioned to sign with YOUNG JEEZY’s C.T.E and ATLANTIC records it all came to a screeching stop once ALEX GARNETT became incarcerated on federal drug trafficking and king pen charges. Trying to stay on top and make his own path the streets found him once again. Losing faith in a recording contract he also lost his cousin and best friend Chauncey Yarbrough to murder charges. As a promise to him

he vowed to never stop until he reaches his goal and even then to keep pushing “I’ve came from nothing and made it too far to stop now” he says “It’s meant to be and no one can stop me but me, sometimes you have to start over to move forward”. With his new WE ON DECK movement formally A.B.G he proves nothing can stop you but you. He is a Cincinnati legend, he is SHOWTIME.

Atlanta’s Own “Parkway Marc”

Image

Marcus C., better known as “Parkway Marc”, is one of the most well known “unknown” rap artists in the Atlanta city limits. Growing up in the infamous “Concrete Jungle” of Atlanta’s drug infested downtown area known as the “4th Ward”, Parkway gained credibility and respect. Born in Grady Homes (G-Town) and raised on Parkway/Ralph McGill Blvd.(Parkway Plaza). By combining his street sense and book intelligence into his rhymes, he developed a unique flow that challenged anyone to try and top his lyrical delivery. 

 

Listening to some of his tracks you hear him recall life on the Boulevard as a continual game with the police, dodging their every move while living the fast life that he’s always known from the streets.  Lyrically, Parkway produces a street scene that is often rapped by many, but truly lived by few.  By using what he likes to call “Real Rap”, Parkway introduces his listeners to his life in the streets of Atlanta.  In a vehement southern dialect he forces you to enter the Dirty South by describing some of the city’s most gritty areas and dealings. 

 

He attributes his musical influence to NWA, Easy-E, Ice Cube, and Tupac Shakur, to name a few.  Since forming D$KG Records with C.A.T.M.A.N., his homeboy from S. Carolina, Parkway has begun to produce his own beats and record his own tracks.  As an entrepreneur, he has produced, published, engineered, and recorded a number of tracks for emerging rappers as many as well known names in the Atlanta area. 

 

Some artists that Parkway has worked with many artists that include Tupac, ATFam, C.A.T.M.A.N., Donkee Boy (SD), Goldmouf, Drizzle Dollar, and Thug Nation, among others.  With his hit song of 2004, “Leave Me Alone”, he caught the ears of local radio stations.  They loved the song and how real the lyrics were, but the words were too much for the radio.  Fearing that the song would lose its force if edited a radio version was never produced.  This was a tough set back, but it proved that he has the skill and talent to reach the masses.  Although some aren’t ready what Parkway likes to characterize as “Conscious Music”, many can relate to the struggles and hardships made known in his lyrics.  In one of Parkway’s most memorable moments he was rapping for 2PAC in ’96, 2pac said it best: “You damn ‘sho gangster, send me that demo”.  Not long after that 2pac was killed. Back to square one.

 

We will definitely be hearing more from Parkway Marc and DSKG.  Check out his new single, “ALL I KNOW IS GO”; it speaks for itself.

 

With several videos; he’s making a big impact on YouTube with thousands of views and counting. His music is ranked in the top percentile of majority of the big social music sites for hip-hop & rap.
