Step Ya Game Up: no PLAY, all WORK…

February 12, 12am

Nothing but hard work and true talent today in the studio just like every other, except this one includes samples of booty shaking and beat making with that freestyle glow. This week on Step Ya Game Up Radio we have telephone guest N.O. out of New Orleans talking about his latest project he’s getting ready to drop. On top of that a freestyle straight off the top dome with no beat. Dope right? We also had his team Diamond Umbrella supporting him live in the studio including Ms.Tamika Harris who talks more about upcoming events and classes that involve African Dance. The last time he was here, he broke record for best freestyle and today none the less he did it again!! @iamlrucus returns for a second time to tell us more about his newest video “Rotate”, which in our opinion is raw! He also talks about how much work he’s been putting in but in the end never enough. Real inspired artists working to make it to the top.

We hear representative selections from Kozelek’s discography in anticipation of his solo concert at the Great American Music Hall on March 1 as part of this year’s Noise Pop festival.
