R.E.A.L tha Poet is a Lexington, KY native Emcee with a sick flow and lyrics that. R.E.A.L's music covers a lot of ground rapping about black trails and tribulations, a topic most new Emcees avoid. "Black Like Me" is one of the features on his classic EP "The REAL World". R.E.A.L has another dope EP called "Learn On The Fly" make sure Y'all go cop that. This is what REal HipHop is made of.

Jairod L. Hardy (stage name Jairod), is a R&B singer, songwriter, and producer coming out of Huntsville Alabama. His interest in music began around the age of seven, composing basic melodies on his grandmother’s antique piano, and his passion for music has thrived ever sense.
He is often compared to the likes of R&B singers Brian and Brandon Casey of Jagged Edge, Tank, and John Legend. I must say in a world where the Top R&B singers are NOT black which is another genre of music we created and seemed to abandoned, Jairod was a breathe of fresh air. We need more R&B singers without the influence of HipHop.

Off the release of his eye-catching debut music video, @AfricanChisom delivers the self-produced "Africa Get Money" -- a lively, Rap-meets-Afrobeat anthem. The Detroit-based Emcee/producer shows off his Nigerian roots and the new wave of African culture in America.
"Africa Get Money" is a call to celebration: an ode to prosperity and enjoyment, for anyone down to partake. "Yeah, they birthed me here, but I rep home / Plan to stunt hard next time I get home," Chisom raps. The newly-minted 25-year-old makes sure to show love to West Africa; he shouts out everything from Kente loafers & jollof rice, to stylish, Ankara print-clad ladies.

Lexington, KY beat maker Jet Taylor produced the entire project. The dark yet soulful backdrop plays perfectly behind my storytelling approach on the project.
