PUSH POWER PROMO – Our featured artist goes by the name of TDIRTY! Here’s his story:

“What’s up world….first off let me introduce to you who I am. I go by the name TDIRTY….I was born and raised in strop-city (bastrop) Louisiana, Sportsman’s paradise…but around my way..wasn’t no paradise…not even a getaway..I grew up in a single parent home…no pops…you know how that shit my sister and my older brother…we stayed in a part of town that made me who I am….why I spit it like it is…growing up in a 2bed room shack..wit most of the windows broken out…winters was a muthafucka…I even slept in my coat….our home stayed getting broken into..every other night it seemed…I even saw my mom almost get raped on one of those occasions…which now makes me a lite sleeper..slightly paranoid….I grew up fast..hung in the streets….never joined a gang…but I had my click…it seemed that was all I needed until one day I came home & turned the Tv on…it was on Yo Mtv raps…I think the most memorable moment was when I saw Eric b and Rakim’s microphone fiend…I was stuck…captured by the pure raw flows…I knew then..that’s what I wanted to do….so I fucked with it…at first I use to get in trouble because my mother played the electric guitar and she was always telling us not to mess with her amp…one day I was like forget that..I wanna rap with it….so I hooked up her microphone to her guitar my mom’s old radio and recorded myself just flowing…yeah eventually I got my ass whooped..but I would’ve did it all over again and took a thousand more whoopings to rock the mic….by the time I was 14 I was in the clubs with the grown folks…by me sitting and observing what made people move and yell out “that’s my shit” made me go and create music that people really can feel…real shit was all I knew… I was doing lil’ shows here and there…some people feeling me…some wasn’t…but hey! it comes with the territory…I remember I did a show and the club promoter couldn’t pay us because few people showed…so they paid me and my cuzzn with boxes of liquor…yeah I was upset but that’s til the drank kicked in…later on I decided to go to college…I attended Grambling State University in 1995..I took up art cause that what I also did other than music…me and cuzzn later started a group called stood fa unknown kin…we use to do mixtapes in our dorm room and pass em out over campus…people was feeling our music…we even auditioned for that first homecoming talent show…we got cut quicker than a turkey on thanksgiving…but that only motivated me…by my sophomore year I was known around campus for my music…tragedy also struck as well when I found out my brother was killed in a car accident..that really fucked me up…I quit rapping for a while…but then one day I thought about it…my brother wouldn’t want me to why am I…then I thought… if he can go to Russia and win a gold medal…I can do this!!…so that next year me and my cuzzn tried out for the homecoming talent show and made it..and was rocking every talent show after that one….we even use to freestyle in the local clubs….yeah I did the group thing for a minute until one night we was doing a show…doing a song we knew for a while…but my cuzzn hoped on stage and fucked up on the whole song….that’s when I decided to go solo…people had been telling me that..but I thought I wasn’t ready yet..until that night..then I felt it was a must…I even sold a lil weed for my school books and local studio time…that wasn’t long because my dope-man was found shot with one in the head and that was like a wake up call for me….soon after..I graduated and moved to California the next day..I came to cali looking for a studio before work.I found a job but it wasn’t love was music…I can remember being outside at work one day and one of my co-workers was talking to me….I didn’t hear a word he said up until I heard studio…I told him I rapped and he was an up and coming producer.. Shit we just clicked after that.I started doing shows all over… A few soundtracks…I was even ghostwriting for some of his artist….I was deep in it and wasn’t trying to get out of it….that connection eventually slowed up….by the year 2005 I was on top of my game….in diff. Studios…..networking with some majors…even had a few record companies on me….but it seemed everyone wasn’t as passionate about this music as I was…but I always stick to my grind…associating myself with people who are passionate about the music as I am…people who know hip-hop and listen to lyrics not beats and dances…..I’ve even opened up for the los angeles lakers…done a few tv spots….hip-hop shows…Im not stopping….and to that phrase is “hip hop dead”… its not dead…its just in the hands of the wrong people” wack niggaz” …hip-hop functions off of what we feed it….so when we as artist start taking it back to spitting with hot lyrics…the wack will fade away and real kats come in. Check me out at, and follow me on twitter @TDIIRTY God bless”

Poodamaccckkk Sophomore Mixtape 3C’s 3K’s 2

August 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Brooklyn born and bred hip hop artist Poodamaccckkk is coming back with his second mix-tape 3C’s 3K’s 2 after his debut 3C’s 3K’s 1 dropped on Halloween of 2011.  He’s been on a hiatus since, but is said to be returning like he never left.  If you haven’t heard the first installment of the 3C’s 3K’s franchise, you need to download that quiet classic a.s.a.p. at:  3C’s 3K’s Mix-tape

If you haven’t  downloaded the 1st mix-tape 3C’s 3K’s, its a must get.  It has some of the rawest creative straight from the street music content that any artist can provide in these times.  Poodamaccckkk provides some unrestricted lyrics broadcasted live from the hard-knock blocks of Bedstuy, Brooklyn, New York City.  He has a witty way of delivering the swag of a young man growing up in a murder, crime, drug filled and competitive part of the world on the 3C’s 3K’s part 1 mix-tape.

Fam and fans alike can expect to get a more focused, great content driven, and highly creative mix-tape that is actually a sample of how a Poodamaccckkk album would sound on this up and coming 3C’s 3K’s 2 mix-tape.  Working with new producers and a growing dedicated team of Real Rite Entertainment and Mogul Boy Entertainment, you will be very proud of your newest hip hop representative on his new project. The 3C’s 3K’s 2 mix-tape slated for late August to mid September.  Expect young Poodamaccckkk to be on course to a long fruitful music and entertainment career.  Check Poodamaccckkk out right here:

New Music Seminar – NYC

  1. Always choose a venue thats SMALLER than you think you need – whats the worst thing that could happen? It sells out!
  2. Have a range of merchandise – the more choice you give – the more you will sell (but its not about $ – its about KEEPING fans).
  3. Learn to screenprint – you’ll be able to make stuff cooler and cheaper, experiment and give more away.
  4. Make sure you know the 15 reasons your show will succeed – if you only have two …’re F@#ked!
  5. Release smaller things more often – EPs and singles and homemade shit sells.
  6. Conquer your local market first! The grass isn’t greener in a far away market – it’s just another shade of brown!
  7. Support your local scene – why do you expect it to support you if you don’t support it? That means going to see other bands, staying all the way through and HELPING if necessary.
  8. Make a video to promote your next show – but feature all of the other bands MORE than you – yes, even though you’re making the video! It ONLY WORKS if people like it and spread it!
  9. Don’t ever be an asshole to anyone: be nice to sound people, crew and, really EVERYONE – no one likes an asshole.
  10. Understand that NO ONE gives a shit about anything you are doing except you (and me).
