In the season finale of Everyday People as we bring a close to season 1 of the podcast we hear issues of growing in and out of the struggle. Tentoekidd from Lexington, KY had to be uprooted from his hometown to California in his 9th grade year of school so he could pursue better opportunities. Leading us to our next point, opportunities arise when you keep grinding and working on your craft. Tentoekidd has a distribution deal with Bentley Records which I call a huge opportunity to do things that he previously couldn’t at the age he was at before. Now that he has his distribution deal there isn’t anything standing in his way. It’s only up from here.
Episode: Moving Forward
This week we break the mold and move away from hip-hop and meet the singer of a rock band. Divine Wrath talks about remaining focus on the goals that you have for your career as a music artist and opens up about his songwriting process. How he translates rap lyrics to rock music which is an interesting process in itself. He gives us the exclusive behind who produced his tracks and how each song came about on his ep entitled Year Of The Dog . A five track ep about different issues that he has seen growing up around Long Island, NY. Speaking upon addiction, drugs, lose, and much more. Each song is filled with a deep emotion that you can’t help but shed a tear. This is the type of music that I would consider listening to the most because rock music transcends all other genres in my eyes because rock musicians have figured out how to bring in other genres / styles into their own music creating a unique sound and story. This is what Divine Wrath has done with his ep and we look forward to hearing many more songs from him in 2018.
Episode: Focus Among The Chaos
Building up your name in a small town can be hard but sometimes you have to be in a small town to see the bigger picture of what your music is really about. FTF Star sits down with us and we understand from this interview that don’t ever doubt where you come from because it molded you into the individual you are today. On the move, FTF Star has had a lot of opportunities with big artist and they have collaborated on many different bodies of works such as his collaboration with music artist,Vino, called All I Need. FTF Star said “ I don’t feel my name is big enough yet. Even though I have worked with big artist.” So with that we want you to know that you should continue to build your brand no matter what occupation you choose. No matter who you work with it's up to you to make a name for yourself and find that purpose you was brought here for.
Episode: The Build Up
Out of the first season this has to be our favorite episode because we speak with a one of the founding members of groovy music who has built up a name for himself as a producer and as an artist that is transforming the scope of music as we see it. Groovy music isn’t just a hip hop group but stepping their foot in and on many different genres such as rock music, pop, and much more. TD6 of Groovy Music schools us in the game of music business which a lot of us don’t really understand until we hear it from a veteran in the industry. As we sat down with him we learned about all the past deals that him and Groovy Music have made which turned out not to be good but despite all that they decided to do things their own way and slowly they have been building up their name all over.
Episode: Transforming The Scope Of Music
Being from Jamaica, Overlord has seen some things but that's just one portion of him. Using all that he learned back home he brought his flow to the states and began making a name for himself. Releasing his project entitled “Nightmare on Eight Killy” you will get a sense that its a different style of music not really from the states but adapted to fit the style that he loves and wants to bring to others.

Some of us don’t know the struggle of growing up in unfavorable circumstances but we do see it all around us. People going through living on the streets, no lights on in the house, kids not having the proper housing, and bullying. We sit down with KSNOW who let us in on the scene around St.Louis while understanding to grow through the struggle. KSNOW didn’t have family support for his rap career in the making but he did have the people around him that he can call family and every since then its been up from there. Of course there has been bumps in the road but it’s all about taking it one step at a time like our friend KSNOW is doing and not letting anyone or any struggle get in the way of the goals that he wants to achieve.
KSNOW now goes by the name of Twophones. You can find him at the links below.
