I lost sight of that but don’t regret the help I’ve given to my brothers. It helped me learn the intricacies and rollercoaster of an industry, preparing me for my own career. My music is honest to the core and I plan on making a huge impact in this game. What has Hip-Hop done for me? Man, it saved my life.”

I would like to start this new segment here on NikkiSiixx.com, it’s called SUPER GIRL SPOTLIGHT. Here’s where I’m giving the true super girls a spotlight where they can let their true talents shine. Our first feature brings us AILAWISHES from AILAWISHES.COM. She’s a bright light when it comes to bringing her projects to life. Ailawishes tells us her super moves when it comes to being a songwriter, screenwriter, aspiring actress, and artist development/management. Being able to maintain it all, Ailawishes takes our Super Girl Spotlight and here’s her biography to get to know her story:
“I discovered my talent when I was 13 years of age. I used to compose hip-hop verses yet never imparted them to anybody in light of my timid emotional disposition. In the wake of graduating school, I appropriated a call, being a yearning model in Hollywood, California who educated herself and became an on-screen character by the name of Brandon Hammond, from Soul Food. I was intrigued by directing a short film that I had written three years back. Excited by the opportunity, I sent her initially my finished motion picture script, Ex-Boyfriend, to Hammond. Sending my work for review, motivated myself to take my writing to a much higher platform. Its no big surprise I had such capable genes as the late extraordinary Dizzy Gillespie is my great-uncle.
In 2001, I began working for a record label where I found myself in artist development. My roster included managing R&B and Hip-hop groups. This opportunity allowed me to gain experience in the marketing field through club promotions and learn the business at an early age. I was so serious about my position and my artist, that the radio stations gave me the nickname “Ms Shugg“.
In 2009, I chose to distribute Floetic Whispers and received great reviews. Some came from big names in the entertainment/music business. After the book release, I was contacted by A&R for Columbia Records. They approached me to compose for one of their R&B singers Adina Howard. Since, I have been writing on an upcoming album for an R&B artists signed to rapper THE GAME’s label.
I have written a children’s book, Heaven’s Library Journey, and began a Non-Profit Organization, A-Kidz Wishes, to push ability in low-wage neighborhoods. I happened to offer many books around the U.S., furthermore encompassing nations. Furthermore, I have several other books that are available now. In July 2013, iNote Publishing has started. –AilaWishes”

After Art Morera dropped the Afterglow EP, during his campaign he released the Covert Loop$. This is where Art Morera freestyles over 3 instrumentals.

Art is one hell of a story-teller, and his lyrics come to life and play a movie in your head. Here’s where Art Morera demonstrates he can take over any beat. Follow his journey and make sure you download the Afterglow EP.

You can even say this is their take on revolutionary rap. They hit hard topics like high real estate prices, online media exposing the worse, and death from police brutality. The production and flow really make this something fun to listen to, even though they touch on real hard topics. The visual presents a cutting-edge graphics that bring their song BLACK STUFF to life.
