Album: Catalyst

Grinders, I know you are wondering why would I give Marqueal Jordan the title; “Candle Light Emotions”, but that’s just how you feel when you are listening to his music – feeling of calling your boo while placing candles (LED candles) all over the house…pouring your favorite beverage dressed in your best if any lounge-wear.

maq1Marqueal has been in the business of seduction by sax since before touring with Brian Culberton for several years. Marqueal has also played with “Spur of the Moment”, locally in the DC area.

Marqueal have a repertoire of sounds: Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, as well as Hip Hop. His diverse ability to captive the audience of any genre is amazing. Listening to Marqueal expression of music, truly attests to a Grinder feeding the love of his craft.

Marqueal Jordan’s saxophone speaks smooth definition of emotions but his voice carries you to whole nother dimension (In my Mississippi English). He has the experience and ability to set your soul at ease, which can only by given by God.

Turn your lights off and dive  into “Catalyst” … I dare you!!!!

brainms

A portion of the 2015 RepYoGrind Awards will be donated to persons living with MS (Multiple Sclerosis). That is why it is so important to purchase tickets (physical or online) or visit Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2015-repyogrind-awards-tickets-15717029057 –click the donation button to give support to those living with this chronic disease.

What is MS (Multiple Sclerosis)?

It’s a chronic relapse/remission autoimmune disease that affects the nervous system; Brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves in your eyes. It can cause problems with vision, balance, muscle control, and other basic body function.

This disease is often different for everyone who has it. Some people have mild to no symptoms and don’t need treatment, where others may have trouble getting around and doing daily tasks.

Most symptoms start between the ages of 20 and 40 with symptoms such as:

  •  Trouble walking
  • Feeling tiredmultiple-sclerosis-6
  • Muscle weakness or spasms
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Sexual problems
  • Poor bladder or bowel control
  • Pain
  • Depression
  • Problems focusing or remembering

Doctors don’t know for sure what causes MS, but there are many things that seem to make the disease more likely. People with certain genes may have a higher chances and smokers maybe at a higher risk for diagnoses.

multiple-sclerosis-s11-ms-symptoms1That is why RepYoGrind feels it’s important not only to contribute portion of the proceeds to the MS Foundation but give to some individuals living with this chronic and life changing disease.

stoney

Stoney, Hip Hop Artist

This Stone Cold Lyrisict have a song called, ” Been, Been” I love!!! It’s hype…I will be upload the clean version soon. Check out our interview below:

www.Facebook.com/stoneybre

www.soundcloud.com/skullsquad_stoney

RYG: Who is Stoney the Hip Hop Artist?
As a hip hop artist I’m a very different individual…I consider myself different because I am a leader, I don’t follow trends I set them…
RYG: What or Who motivated you to become a lyricist?
I was always a lyricist even though I chose to pursue R&B first, however it wasn’t until I linked up with my cousin Rara that I began rapping officially…
stoney1RYG: How has Hip Hop changed since your beginning?
Hip Hop was more about the lyrics in the beginning nowadays your words could be fire, but if your beat not on point than nobody listens to you.
RYG: How would you describe your musical style?
I would describe my style of hip hop  as a combination of all of hip hop put in to one … I have a little down south,  Midwest,  and East coast…I’ve been compared to rappers such as Kendrick Lamar, Asap Rocky and even Bone Thugs and Harmony.
stoney2RYG: What is the hardest aspect of being an Artist?
The hardest part about being an artist is staying true to yourself… Everyone these days are giving in to becoming a gimmick rapper,  but I gotta stay true to self!
RYG: Words of inspiration?
My advice to everyone out there is as I stated before stay true to your self…Don’t allow others to change you…Be yourself!! 

Ray Vic CD Release Party (Victorious)…

Victorious

Hey Grinders, I have to tell y’all about the CD Release Party I attended on February 28, 2015 for Hip Hop Master; Ray Vic “Victorious”. This magnificent event was filled with supporters; dressed in there most dapper Black attire.

 

 

At this event you could feel the true art of love in support. I had the opportunity to meet other bright entrepreneurs and business professionals.  I would like to Shout Out to Mrs. DeMetra Jackson-Varner of “In the Nik of Time Management and Consulting Co.”, for helping Ray Vic/Victory Muzic  propel to the next level.

Now Grinders, let me tell you about Ray Vic slamming Performance!!! With every song the energy in the room elevated higher and higher until the audience could not stand in the circle anymore. I looked to my right; people were dance, turned to my left; people were shouting out the lyrics…by the time I turned around and the crowd had hit the stage in a matter of speaking. lol. It was like Club Royal in the Museum. This event was EPIC!!!

Shout out team, great job!!!!! GET THAT CD, I HAVE BEEN ROCKED IT SINCE THE RELEASE!!!!
