Kay L and Stephen Voyce stand against systemic oppression! DIRT ON MY NAME!

Kay L and Stephen Voyce are a duo that are becoming ever-more well-known as time marches on. They’ve teamed up for plenty of awesome bangers in the recent past, and this one is no different: Dirt On My Name is a deep-cutting slapper that tells it like it is, and shows fierce independence in the face of a rigged system.

The higher you stand above the rest, the easier it is for jealous people to put a target on your back. That sentiment can apply to petty drama and haters, but it can also apply to systemic oppression. That’s what this track is all about. If they think they can get away with it, people will drag your name through the mud if you have what they want. Dirt On My Name goes hard and spits based truths while keeping the instrumental and flow smooth. There’s some anger in here, but also some genuine sadness over having to deal with prejudice, something that is sure to be relatable to anyone who has experienced the social issues that this song is commenting on. The trap beat pairs well with the swaying melody and dejected lyrics, leading to a track that will have you nodding your head while you’re thinking about why the world is so wrong. Pensive tracks that have a lot to say are remembered for years to come for a reason. Let’s hope that in this case, it’s remembered as a time capsule, because all these social movements fighting for the rights of minorities are making a difference every day. Kay L and Stephen Voyce know this, and they’re here to speak out on what really matters, supporting your fellow human beings and not defaming based on prejudiced notions. “I see how they want it, lay down on your stomach, hands up or we’ll shoot, that’s just the way that they do”… the names of Kay L and Stephen Voyce can be dragged through the mud as many times as possible and they’ll still rise above it. That’s what we foresee.

After being acclaimed as the #1 opening act in Canada, Juno nominated artist Kay L has shown absolutely no signs of slowing down. He’s probably most known for his work with the group District 5, and his clever lyricism and intoxicating choruses. He has toured with the likes of: NAS, SNOOP DOGG, AKON, RIHANNA, FLO-RIDA, THE GAME, REDMAN & METHODMAN, ASHANTI, GINUWINE, SEAN KINGSTON, OBIE TRICE, MARIO, FABOLOUS, PITBULL, BOYZ II MEN, EVE, D12, JOE BUDDEN and many more! Kay L has also been able to extend his talents far beyond his stomping grounds to countries such as Jamaica, where he toured with “Drum n DJ”, a group whom he has experienced much radio success with. He’s established a sound that is nothing short of unique… So add him to your playlist and get ready to feel every high and low that his array of emotional tracks have in store for you, just like the anger and passion behind Dirt On My Name! You won’t regret the many different journeys ahead, as long as he’s with ya.

So if you love Kay L just as much as us, and wanna keep your ear to the ground on any new releases from him, we have just the social media accounts and Spotify lists for you to turn to. Watch this space, because with how much he loves doing what he does, this definitely won’t be the last we hear of him!

Another heat won and another shoutout to us! Down3r and Lokust dominating April’s race day!

In late April, Down3r took part in his long time hobby of car racing, and he brought his crew out with him to see the action! Thanks to Your Favourite Rapper’s Favourite Crippled Rapper, Lokust Luciano and his main photography man E, we got some insider footage of the big day out, and it looks like it was a good time for all involved. We even have some exclusive BTS shots of the event prep!

While DL didn’t win the main event, he won his heat which is an important bar to reach. This race wasn’t a championship event, but it’s only a matter of time before Down3r takes home the gold for that. The Oildale dustbowl got tore up real good, and there’ll be plenty more to come, you just watch. E got some great shots of the behind-the-scenes race setup action.

But there’s more to celebrate than just the race. If you listen good to the vid, you’ll hear another series of shoutouts like Lokust and Down3r gave to our Latin American team, but this time for both LATAM and us over here in Australia, as well as our CEO Damien, and Blue Pie and DJ Central around the world in general! Blue Pie and DJ Central work closely on many things and also share several staff members, so a shoutout to one is a shoutout to the other… a sick bonus, yeah? Down3r, Lokust and E all gave us ALL the love of Christmas in April. They’re out here doing cinematic work, and repping Suga Boom Boom and the Blue Pie logo on the side of DL’s car! Lokust has said he’ll be getting the Blue Pie logo as a tattoo soon which is hella exciting, we can’t wait.

But in case you’ve been living under a rock, who are these dudes shouting all of us out?

Lokust Luciano was born William Arciszewski on June 21st, 1988 as a premature baby, and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. He grew up in North Fort Myers and began writing poetry at the tender age of 9 years old. He is the first rapper with Cerebral Palsy, and has been active in multiple facets of the Hip-Hop scene since 1998. He moved to Florida for leg surgery when he was very young, as the medical world at the time (1988) didn’t have a solid understanding of Cerebral Palsy yet, so he had to seek out an expert specialist. Orlando was the only place he could go for it, and he came out on the other side grinning. He is well known in the underground music scene for his production talent and lyrical delivery. He is also sometimes known by the handle “Crippled Kingpin”.

The adversities he has overcome are now a part of his personal aesthetic, showing his strength and sturdy sense of humour. His creative drive is unstoppable, and we’re sure you’ll agree when you see some of the hits from his catalogue that have been turning heads his way! We’ll see you there, and until next time, do what we’re planning to do… keep your ear to the ground for some spicy new releases from the Kingpin himself!

As for Down3r… through fierce and funky west coast rap, DL Down3r shares his prolific work with the rest of the world, and the stage with west coast rap legends such as Coolio, Brown Boy, Jay Tablet, Lil Young, Snoopyblue, LadyDice, Baby Bash, Steel City Hustlers, King Z and DJ Kane to name a few.

From powerful messages, lyrical poetry and sharp comments on society, to G-funk and Trap/EDM hype songs, he proves that age and experience is the opposite of a liability in today’s rap game. Blast it loud, get ready to feel something, and rest assured knowing that hip hop never died!

YOU GON HAFTA KILL HIM! DL Down3r and crew rocking with UNDEFEATED!

This track from DL Down3r and the crew is an all-star hit that is sure to make its way into your pump-up playlists as soon as you hear it.

“Undefeated” debuted at the Medford Armory Arena Wars during the entertainment show, giving the fighters the fuel they needed to throw down with the vicious energy that wins games!

A special shoutout to the Arena Wars and Legacy Boxing Gym is featured in the music video for the track, along with an inspirational message.

“What does it mean to be undefeated?

It means you have the drive to keep going when it seems impossible. When the odds are stacked against you, when everybody else would’ve given up but you still in the fight. In order to win – they’re gonna have to kill you… That is undefeated.”

The sentiment is loud and clear. As someone once said, “Death Isn’t Defeat”. You can lose but that doesn’t mean you’re defeated. That only happens once you give up… which of course, the crew here would never think of doing!

The video features Cordell Drake, Uno Tha Prodigy & Stone P., and is directed by John Risky Boltz. They’re a closely-knit group, and the fun they have together is undeniable.

The crew are on top of the world right now, and after appearing at the Arena Wars show and bringing the house down, they’re sure to also be at the top of people’s playlists too! They’re not only Undefeated, they’re truly invincible as they show the world their motivation and anger. Get ready to win all your battles when you blast this war cry, because with Undefeated cranked to 11, there’s no way that things could get any more based.
