Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have Toronto hip-hop artist Shah with his latest music video PAY DAY 71. The title Pay Day 71 refers to the gender wage gap, which sees women earning 71% of their male counterparts. This track is definitely meant to be played at a strip club with its heavy bass and auto-tuned hooks. During the A3C Festival in Atlanta PAY DAY 71 was getting heavy play in the strip clubs, because due to the dancers embracing it so much. Shah showcases its all about the money when you work hard for it. Shah’s music video is the fourth installment that’s apart of his audiovisual series. If you like the message Shah is portraying in his latest single, make sure you let him know and don’t forget to support.

When I was in Atlanta for A3C this October I gained light to a few artists that all making some impressive moves. One of those artists was Que, the artist that created “OG Bobby Johnson”, he is back with his latest song “Time”. He speaks about not wasting time on meaningless sex, selling drugs in small amounts (nickels and dimes) and other time wasting activities. The Sonny Digital produced song has a super catchy hook with a mean southern style beat. This is a good follow up song and also has single potential it’s own way. After releasing this song it was also announced that Que just signed a distribution deal with Atlantic Records so congratulations to him on the deal as well. Check out “Time” below and leave some feedback.
The 9th Annual All 3 Coast (A3C) Hip-Hop Festival went on in Atlanta, GA from October 2nd to October 6th and was superb to say the least. The festival was attended by 1000s of hip-hop artists, bloggers, photographers, videographers, clothing designers, film directors, executives and hip-hop fans. The events took place all over Atlanta, Ga from Little 5 Points to the Old 4th Ward. Multiple major label and independent artists were able to showcase their talents in the multiple venues set up through out the city. I was able to catch some of my favorites like Talib Kweli and Schoolboy Q as well up and comers like Que and Miloh Smith. Along all of the shows, there were also multiple panels and workshops for A3C participants to learn about everything from booking shows to getting paid for song placements in video games. There were numerous opportunities to network and connect with people that you may not have at your disposal on a daily basis. Overall the experience was tremendous both from and artist and blogger aspect and is a trip that I would recommend every artist take at least once.
