[Video] Pep Rally-Turn The Radio Up (Klubjumpers REMIX)


The current Philadelphia musical renaissance is spearheaded by the recording studios and rock clubs in town. Foremost among these venues is MilkBoy, run by producer/engineer Tommy Joyner, who also produces music at the Philadelphia recording studio of the same name. Hosting and recording sessions for artists like Lana Del Ray, Silk Sonic, Miley Cyrus, and James Taylor, Joyner is a songwriter himself, and, surrounded by so much creativity and growth, it was inevitable that he’d eventually get around to recording his own music.

Meek Mill Facing Prison Time

Meek Mill is going to court on Monday, November 6, to find out if he'll be disciplined for two recent arrests that could result in probation violations. The 30-year old Philadelphia rapper, born Robert Williams, was picked up at a St. Louis airport in March for an alleged fight. In August he was arrested in New York City, accused of reckless driving.

In February of 2016, Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley, sentenced Meek to 90 days house arrest and extended his probation by six years for leaving Philadelphia on several occasions without notifying his probation officer.

If Brinkley determines that the "House Party" hit maker has violated his probation again, she could impose a sentence of up to 20 months in prison, according to TMZ.

Lawsuit Dismissed Against Jay-Z & Meek Mill

 


Jay-Z and Meek Mill have reportedly settled a lawsuit with a Philadelphia police officer who sued both of them along with Roc Nation after a depiction of her in the 2019 Amazon original doc ‘Free Meek.’


The documentary spoke on Meek’s incarceration, and how the rapper shifted his focus on calling out the injustices of the U.S. prison system and criminal justice system in Philadelphia. Crooked police officers in Philly were highlighted as well, but it was revealed that one of the officers—Saqueta Williams, was reportedly proven to be innocent of any wrongdoing as a cop. Williams ultimately sued Roc Nation, Jay-Z, and Meek for invasion of privacy and defamation as a result after she was labeled as a crooked police officer.

Lyrico Godchild - Only You


Love, respect and unity take center stage on new single from Lyrico Godchild

 PHILADELPHIA, PA – Augustine Kiawu has the kind of second-chance redemption story that most people only dream of.

Better known as the artist Lyrico Godchild, this Liberian-born multi-talented musician came to the U.S. in 2002 and lived in Maryland and Philadelphia, where he met a couple of African and Black American rappers. After a couple freestyle sessions, he was given the name Lyrico and he hasn’t looked back since. But he got into trouble around this time, as well, and was arrested and charged with a crime that would have resulted with him serving 40 years in jail if the judge had found him guilty. But while serving time at the Buck County Correctional Facility, Lyrico said he had a powerful vision from God that instructed him to accept Jesus as the son of God and as his personal Lord and Savior. Moreover, he said God told him that if he did this and obeyed Him, he would bless his legal fight and take him from jail, transforming his life in ways far beyond he could ever imagine. Lyrico accepted Jesus and told God that he’d service him with his unique gifts, talents, and abilities to the best of his abilities.
