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”
[BROOKLYN, NY] Making her debut on NikkiSiixx.com, VIIK brings us her latest visuals to PAPER/PAPER REMIX. The singer/songwriter/producer delivers a mix of electronic, hip-hop, dub reggae and even some trap elements. VIIK goals is to promote semi-conscious lyrics with beats to make you bounce. You definitely have to on this record!
According to VIIK: “Paper” is a satirical yet playful hip-hoppy reggae banger about the power of the “almighty dollar” and the grip it has on society. There’s so much chaos in the world yet we are all distracted by our daily quest for the cash. It keeps a lot of the population from becoming aware and finding their purpose. And on top of that as a human of color, racism and systematic oppression is still alive.
PAPER/PAPER REMIX brings us some funky psychedelic visuals. I really like VIIK goth/edm look with the hot pink dreads, pink eyebrows, and everything leather. Her voice in kind and delivers a powerful message. Its time to get that paper. Follow VIIK via her Twitter Account @VIIK_WORLD and get updated on new content!

Kame House is a fun and filled with high energy that is something you have to bump to. Topics discussed on the project are from nerd humor, hip-hop and pop culture, video games, and even some anime.

One thing I really like about my site I can always divert to another genre besides hip-hop, because I love music in general. I came across a gem that I couldn’t help to find the time to shine some light on. Charlee Remitz, a singer slash songwriter released her song called KING’S CUP. The song portrays an abusive relationship that Charlee Remitz had with a family member. In which she felt she was always walking on egg shells, specifically because she never knew what was going to set this person off. I feel that the director Bruce Guido was able to portray this type of relationship in this visual. We see a young ballerina dancing on the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard. While performing on the street she collects money in a hat. The young girl’s father is the one who has her doing this to find ways of making an income for himself to splurge in the casino. The music video was executed perfectly. The actors did amazing. I feel like I’m watching a real movie. This is how music videos should be, portraying a story that’s so empowering. Spread your wings Charlee, you got this! I love how she’s singing by the sunset on Malibu beach. Her makeup was spot on! She also released her album Bright White Trims a few days ago. Be on the look out for more content from Charlee Remitz! Produced By: Mike Gonsolin

Check out the latest music video from HEWAN, a female Los Angeles based Recording Artist. She debuts her WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS PLAYING visual. Hewan’s desire to write songs arose after seeing India Arie for the first time on 106&Park. Which later inspired her to buy her first guitar in college and then began writing songs on one string. Her favorite color is yellow. Yellow is the color of the mind and the intellect. It is optimistic and cheerful. Which makes sense, since her video portrays the same feeling when watching her music video, WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS PLAYING. HEWAN looks amazing! Besides looks she has soul! During the video you see a little girl play with dolls, practice her guitar, and takes her imagination to the next level.
When The Music Stops Playing
Music Stop. Don’t Run Don’t Run
You Better Practice Your Patience One Day You Will Make It
So What, So What
Here’s a little Q&A I had with HEWAN.
NIKKISIIXX: The little girl in the video is she supposed to signify your younger self? If so, what inspired this concept for the visual?
HEWAN: Yup she is. The video shows the contrast between the two worlds of an child and an adult. The little girl is living in a a world of hopes and dreams while the adult is living in a world of realities. Things don’t always (or usually) turn out the way you imagine them as a child. Especially not on your timeline. But thats ok (hence the line – “don’t run” – in the chorus). That is what the song is about. And in the video we tried to show the two worlds through simple back and forth shots via the performance video, (hope that makes sense).
NIKKISIIXX: Do you have an upcoming project in the works?
HEWAN: As for projects – I just released an EP last month called “When the Music Stops Playing.” I will be dropping “singles” from the EP.
Don’t forget to watch Hewan’s video and leave a comment and let her know how you feel! Also, to get the latest from her just follow her on her social media links below:

What’s good music lovers! It’s Pedro comin’ at ya’ with that good good – that mash your face up while you nod your head music – that music that reminds you why you still download MP3s to your itunes or have that custom audio deck in your vehicle. Nikki hit me up with a lot of music to review this week and out of all of them, this one had me like:
“OoOoOoooh smaaaack!! you go girl!”
Tamara Bubble! Songwriter, actress, singer and model from Brooklyn, NY. She writes and performs everything from Dance to Hip Hop, blending elements of Jazz and Soul. It seems as if there’s nothing she can’t do. She shows her versatility on this record by delivering confident rap vocals accompanied by an upbeat melodious hook that had me out of my seat doin’ some kinda’ Beyonce dance.
I was sweatin’, I was dancin’, I was sippin’, I was livin’ it up. Mission Accomplished Tamara. Krazy Figz did an excellent job on the production. The music complimented Tamara perfectly.
The quality of the vocal mix could be improved upon though. There were times where the adlibs overpowered the main vocals which disrupted the blend. This however, didn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the song at all. I would still blast this in my car. I could still hear this in the club. I could still buss’ a Beyonce to it.
I love how she delivered both competent, cohesive rap verses and singing hooks that make you go:
She can RAP and SING!
A lot of singers who rap on their records sound uncomfortable and unnatural but Tamara really sounds like she’s in her element.
I like this song, love her sound, love her charisma and her style. Despite the vocal mix, I still appreciated the record and want to hear more from this artist. Color me a fan! Her new single is now available on iTunes. Click here to check it out.
“1999 was a good year. For the same amount I could get her good hair”
