The wound is still open in the Hollis,Queens neighborhood in what is considered “Northside” Queens in the Southeast district of New York, regarding the death of Zanu Simpson aka #ZdaGreat a popular athlete/barber who was kilt in a senseless act of violence on July 25 2017 in the wee hours of the morning following a party at popular bar and grill called Breezes on the Conduit in Rosedale by the highway… well that’s what the streets are saying but one continues to wonder… WHY? What could have possibly led the killer to wanna pull the trigger… was it fear? was it premediated? was it revenge? We will never know until the light is shown… what sits in the dark eventually reaches SUNLIGHT… #staytune

About UFO FEV:
Anthony Ortiz, better known by his rap name UFO FEV, is an upcoming refreshing artist born in East Harlem, New York City. Growing up in Thomas Jefferson Houses; Fev was inspired by his favourite rappers like Big Pun, Jay-Z and Beanie Siegel but his flow is still raw, original and captivating.   
 
UFO FEV was surrounded by a household that was diverse on music; listening to hip-hop, latin, and freestyle. But the major influence in his life was his father, Tony from the internationally-known group TKA. One of his most memorable moments with his father was at WKTU’s Beatstock, TKA performed for a crowd of 55,000 at Giants Stadium. The wow factor was incredible for FEV and his sister, Brook Penning, UFO FEV was inspired. But growing up FEV was afraid to show his father his talents. When he was in the 11th grade his increasing buzz was all over the streets of East Harlem. Eventually catching his father’s attention, he was impressed by his son.   
 
The name FEV was given to him by Black Rob, another well-known rapper. His exact words were, 
“You’re hot like a fever,” hence the name FEV which stuck in the streets. UFO FEV’s distinct flow, clever self-written lyrics, Spanish background and obvious passion set him apart from any other rapper stemming from Harlem. His songs are based on stories and topics of everyday life from the good to the bad to the ugly; Goals, death, stress, happiness, dreams, love are just a few.

Meet the Talent: TRPL BLK X DJ PRINCE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TRPL BLK & DJ PRINCE RELEASE “NATIONAL DEBUT” LP

ALBUM OF THE DAY ON BANDCAMP DAILY

SUPPORT FROM DANNY BROWN & CRAIG SJ FROM NEW YORK MAGAZINE

“National Debt touches on multiple styles—Detroit’s ghetto tech, traditional hardcore hip-hop, a singular trap cadence on “Windows 95,” and bashment, or Jamaican dancehall—with the title track setting the tone for the project.” —Bandcamp

New York, NY (August 2, 2017) — Gritty in its delivery, and sometimes lo-fi in its production, “National Debt” finds Detroit-native rapper-songwriter TRPL BLK and Long Island’s DJ Prince, who also raps on the project, on a financial escapade. From the start, informative and insightful skits affix the convictions of their album like they did in the nineties.

In a time where trap regulates urban sound waves and global pop culture, TRPL BLK and DJ Prince have chosen to use their creativity to coach, in the same way, Jay-Z’s “4:44” does. The differences lie within the creation. In verity, TRPL BLK and DJ Prince come from families who are financially astute. However, they are in the trenches, with groups of people, they want to educate.

On their own, they’ve garnered support from several media outlets from the likes of Complex, Fact Mag, SPIN, Okayplayer, 2DOPEBOYZ

About ‘National Debt:’
Delving into the layers of each composition, individuality, and solidarity glistens through the bass-heavy selections. Unlike most albums today, “National Debt” ventures into multiple genres that are indigenous to its makers (Detroit’s ghettotech, traditional hardcore hip-hop, a singular trap cadence on “Windows95,” and bashment or Jamaican dancehall). The title track grounds the project, setting the tone, lyrically and visually.

Conway, who recently inked a deal with Eminem’s Shady Records, is the only feature (“Choppa Jit”). In the Buffalo-native rapper’s verse, he boasts about what the gentlemen have in common: Earning hard cash, reprimanding anyone who threatens their peace, and Danny Brown. Other collaborations and silent input came forth in the A&R, production, and visual side. Dart Adams, Combat Cottonwood, Hillie Hill, Dusty Fingerz, Von Styles, and myself are credited.

On an another note: Whether one chooses to see it or not, there are also streaks of encouragement for female-run businesses in the 12-track effort (“National Debt,” “Cheddar Make It Wetter” and “No Cash No Pum Pum”). Women have been written off or written out of America’s economy for so long. We’re still fighting for the so-called Equal Pay Act of 1963 to kick in now, so it is a refreshing inclusion.

“It was all natural, it was nothing planned but the rhythm spoke to me and naturally this is what came to mind. It was a sexy track and immediately what came to mind was ‘Privacy’ I started writing and the rest was history” says Mr Easy.
