Black Panther – Yearwood / Intense Demonstration of Racial Injustice

Black Panther – Yearwood / Intense Demonstration of Racial Injustice

Meet Yearwood:

LA-based rap artist, singer and songwriter, Yearwood has just released an impressive music video, titled “Black Panther”, about the inequality and abuse of black lives. Yearwood has created this in conjunction with the 100 year anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 and current systemic racism in the USA.

Yearwood was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago, where he grew up surrounded by dancehall and soca music. However, music didn’t play an important role in his life until he was introduced to DMX.

Through artists such as DMX and JAY-Z, Yearwood discovered a strong connection to rap music. It provided a portal for him to express himself through art.

He began to pursue a career in music five years ago after his first session at a recording studio in New York. After this, he not only cultivated a prosperous career as an artist but, also built a data science-driven startup company around music.

Black Panther:

“Black Panther” is an incredibly powerful rap song and music video from his upcoming debut album, Animal Farm. It may cause some viewers to feel uneasy, but this kind of brutal honesty is exactly what is needed.

For decades there was an intentional cover-up of the Tulsa Race Massacre. Scholars later discovered that the police and state militia archives concerning the massacre were missing. There were no public ceremonies, memorials for the dead or any efforts to commemorate the events of May 31-June 1, 1921. As a result, until recently the Tulsa Race Massacre was rarely mentioned in history books, taught in schools or even talked about.

The visual footage of this music video alone is enough to take your breath away. Impactful images of BLM protests, Ku Klux Klan burnings, white supremacists, beatings, and constant flashes of inequality statements flood the screen.

The impact is heightened as we listen to Yearwood’s compelling and poignant lyrics, such as: “we’re marching with our fists up and nothing can stop us. This should make your blood boil. You should be seething. Think about George Floyd, he should be breathing”.

Yearwood has created a seriously impressive piece of art that delivers a potent and lasting impression. He presents a clear and thought-provoking message that should be seen, heard and shared.

What’s next for Yearwood?

Yearwood has exciting projects in the pipeline this year and he is set to release his upcoming album, Animal Farm this summer. This is a seven-song project with each song named after an animal. Black Panther is the first single from this project and we are excited to see the completion of this album. If you enjoy music from artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Big Sean, then Yearwood will fit perfectly on your rap playlist.

Keep and eye out for his future releases, in the meantime Yearwood has a message for all his listeners: “if Black Panther resonates with you. If this captures the way systemic racism or white supremacy in America makes you feel, share this video with your friends, enemies, and your neighbours. Make people uncomfortable. Spark a dialogue. Especially if you’re white. We appreciate all the allies we have in the fight for equality and we won’t make nearly as much progress as we can without your help.”

Hourglass – Irresitible Reggae Vibes by Ben Barbic

Meet Ben Barbic:

California bay born and raised Ben Barbic is a multi-talented, genre-blending singer, songwriter, musician, and producer.

Ben has been an avid music lover since he got his first programmable keyboard at the age of 5 yrs old. By 7 he was already a budding songwriter and wrote his first song. He told us: “It was an ode to Martinelli Apple Juice in those little bottles, which I happen to be drinking at the time. It started with; I found a can of apple juice, all covered with leaves,” (Ben laughs).

That was the beginning of a lifelong passion for music, which he has continually developed, drawing his influences from his emotions, feelings, and life experiences.

His first introduction in the music industry was with hip-hop, but it was reggae that stole his heart. He told us: ” If you had to put me in a scene, it would definitely be reggae. I love the music, culture, and vibe of the thing.”

Although Ben’s core genre is reggae, he skillfully infuses his style with dashes of hip-hop, dancehall, and pop, to create a unique and appealing sound. His versatility and originality have been gaining much attention in the music industry and he just had a guest appearance on the well-known podcast “Moment 2 Moment”. Check it out here:


“Hourglass” is an addictive reggae vibe track where Ben dazzles us with impressively constructed rhythmic verses, which showcase sporadic super speedy lyrical delivery.

With a carefree energy and an incredibly catchy tune that keeps your body moving and grooving, this song stays with you, enticing you to return for more.

Ben has a beautifully smooth and charismatic voice that is a delight to listen to. His emotive expression in the delivery of the lyrics “and the time like sand in the hourglass”, connects strongly with the listener.

This gentle reminder alerts us to the realisation that time does slip through our fingers, just like sand. When we asked Ben about the inspiration for this song he told us: “we only have so much time to live life. So, live with no regrets and do the things you love. Live Free.”

“Hourglass” with its chilled reggae vibes and pleasing delivery will charm any listener and if you enjoy music from artists such as Collie Buddz and Fat Freddy’s Drop, then Ben Barbic will fit perfectly on your reggae playlist.

What’s next for Ben Barbic:

Ben is constantly striving to better his music and keep things fresh and exciting. He has several new projects gearing up for release this year, remember to keep an eye out for them.

In the meantime, he has a message for all his listeners: “Search endlessly for your personal passions. Once you find them don’t let anything take you off your path. I approach life with the motto that I’m only stopping when I’m dead. Until that day, I will only walk forward on my path. I try and give a message to everyone to enjoy life and try to find the best version of themselves. If you wake up every day and say, “This could be the best day of my life”, it sets a certain tone. With music and life, I’m searching for the best it can be. This is the only way I know how to live it. I hope you ride with me on this journey.”

One More Day (Theme from “the Seven Chambers”) – Ben E. Davis / Explosive Expression of Love & Loss

Meet Ben E. Davis:

London-based, LA-born singer-songwriter Ben E.Davis has just released his newest single, “One More Day”.

Ben first started singing when he was just a young boy. He was inspired by a TV series called Kids Incorporated, about a group of youngsters who were in a band.

Years later, he fulfilled his childhood dream and joined a band called the LA Allstars. They toured the world together performing cover songs for weddings and corporate parties.

Ben has an eclectic style that was greatly influenced by two of the biggest music stars in history, Michael Jackson and Tina Turner. His style of music is definitely within the pop genre but he tells us: “I call my music schizophrenic soulful pop, it mixes genres and reflects my mood at the time I’m writing”.

One More Day:

“One More Day” is a touching and intensely emotive song that was inspired by Ben’s grandma, Dorothy, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

The song opens and we are instantly captivated by a slow, dramatic and expansive soundscape, which is reminiscent of a Celine Dion movie soundtrack. It’s no surprise that this epic track was selected as the theme song for the video game, “The Seven Chambers”. A Nintendo switch video game about a young girl called Elasaid, who falls into a coma and experiences a past life as a Highland Warrior.

Ben sings with intense emotion and his breathy, raspy delivery expresses deep heartache and loss. He has an extraordinary vocal ability that carries immense character and charisma. Listeners are equally charmed and hypnotised by his passionate performance.

This is a slow-tempo track that gradually builds to an explosive chorus. It has all the makings of an unforgettable anthem and listeners won’t be able to resist joining in with the powerful chorus, as Ben sings: “what about me, what about you, what about all that we’ve been through. What do I say to turn the clock back, one more day”.

It’s no surprise that this epic track was selected as the theme song for the video game, “The Seven Chambers”. A Nintendo switch video game about a young girl called Elasaid, who falls into a coma and experiences a past life as a Highland Warrior. Her only escape is to navigate her way to the Seventh Chamber and fight the fallen angel. Take a look at the video game here:

ANIME: Another Night In My Emotions – Semaj Foreman / An Album of Sonic Bliss

Meet Semaj Foreman:

Multi-talented singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, and sound engineer, Semaj Foreman has released his newest album, ANIME: Another Night In My Emotions.

He is based in Fort Worth, Texas where he lives with his wife two daughters, and son. His family is a huge source of encouragement for him. His artistic 12 yr old daughter even gave a helping hand with the design of this album’s artwork.

Seems like there is no end to this artist’s talents. Who, also owns and designs his own clothing brand, Nobody Special.

Foreman knew that he wanted to make music from an early age and by 14 he was teaching himself how to make beats. He made his first sale on SoundClick, before our modern age of multiple soundclouds, at the age of 16 for $600.

By the age of 18, he had made a name for himself and people knew his music. He appeared on the surreal VH1 series with Vanilla Ice, “The Remaking of Rob Van Winkle”. Later he went on to produce 3 tracks on Ice’s platinum underground album.

His newest album is a collection of lo-fi, chilled tracks for lovers of Anime. He created the acronym “Another Night in My Emotions” to reflect on the emotional journey of each song.

ANIME: Another Night In My Emotions:

Let me start off by saying, this is a beautifully crafted album. The songs invoke a wide spectrum of emotions that seamlessly flow from one to the other.

Foreman keeps us enthralled and tantalized at the same time while taking us on a musical journey of emotions.

A dreamy and ethereal soundscape is created from the first track and listeners are absorbed into a world of blissful electro-beats.

The opening song is quite frankly brilliant, witty, and clever. Foreman creates the effect of switching through radio stations offering us many different sounds, energies, and moods. Which concludes with an exasperated and agitated voice stating, “Another Night In My Emotions”.

The first few tracks are extremely chilled with a dreamy, anime soundscape. The music wraps around the listener like a warm hug, seducing you to close your eyes and give in to the soundwaves washing over you.

The vibe switches as “Make The Devilman Cry” kicks in and our senses are alerted with a restrained yelling voice proclaiming “why God?”. This jolts us out of our slumber and jumpstarts our alertness to this powerful track.

At this point, the album switches gears from anime serenity to explicit aggression. Clearly expressing the rollercoaster ride of emotions that people can experience.

The energy gradually softens as the album progresses further onto the final song, “To Stay Here Is Death, To Go Is Death”. This track invokes strong feelings of melancholy and yearning.

Foreman has done a remarkable job with this album and whether you are a lover of lo-fi or anime, you will certainly love listening to ANIME: Another Night in My Emotions. If you enjoy music from artists such as PARTYNEXTDOOR and Tory Lanez, then Semaj Foreman will fit perfectly on your lo-fi playlist.

What’s next for Semaj Foreman?

Foreman is passionate about cultivating and growing further as a musician and you will be seeing many more projects from him. He has a message for all his listeners out there: “Never give up on anything you have a passion for. Don’t let other people tell you that you can’t do it and success is not always based on obtaining riches. Your personal success is chosen by you. Thank you for listening.”

When I Sleep – Betty Boo Banksta / Inspiring Music Video Release

Betty Boo Banksta:

Eclectic singer-songwriter Betty Boo Banksta has just released a captivating new music video for her song, “When I Sleep”.

Banksta has an intense passion for her music and expertly utilises this portal to express herself in a unique and fascinating form.

Her first professional musical encounter came when she was invited to accompany a friend to drop off tracks at the Bobby Brown studio, where Outkast was recording.

Banksta jumped at the chance as she was completely enamoured with André 3000. When she arrived they were listening to Aquemini and asked her opinion. Without hesitation, Banksta announced that it was missing her voice, so the guys invited her to jump on the mic!

Not one to miss out on an opportunity, Banksta tore that mic up and even has a trophy to prove it.

Her background is in hip-hop, but this fascinating woman can delve into any genre you throw at her.

When I Sleep:

The music video “When I Sleep”, displays what a captivating performer Banksta is, both vocally and visually. Here, she showcases her tantalising energy and passion, as well as her unique style.

She delivers a dazzling performance in a strobe-lit studio where she plays the piano and sexily crawls across it. Dreamy, smoke-filled scenes bounce between her on the piano to singing in a microphone booth and performing on a stage.

Her bold style is inspiring and she sports a sweater with a huge eye on the front, suggesting to her viewers that she sleeps with one eye open. Or perhaps this represents her inner eye, which is wide open when she sleeps, seeing into the unconscious realm.

The inspiration for this song came from Banksta’s mother who would always tell her that she sleeps too much. She told us: “this song is about the awakening of the mind, spirit, and soul. There is resting but our consciousness never sleeps. Ever!”.

Banksta had an amazing team behind her for the production of this video, which was directed by the renowned Kevin Garrett and co-produced by the incredible vision of Reginald Dewayne Boyland.

Watch the music video to “When I Sleep” right here…

What’s next for Betty Boo Banksta:

Banksta’s upcoming projects are going to be exploring her musical roots in rap. We are excited to see what this diverse artist will showcase next.
