NEW VIDEO: Substance Abuse feat. Aceyalone "Bridges"

Eso Tre and Subz are L.A. duo Substance Abuse, presenting the RCKLSS ABNDN-directed music video for the Waes One and Philm One-produced single “Bridges”, featuring Aceyalone of Freestyle Fellowship. Former URB Next 100 picks, their 2006 album Overproof (Bandcamp) featured MF DOOM, Saafir, P.E.A.C.E., Kool Keith, Motion Man, Kutmasta Kurt and Rasco, while 2012's Background Music (Spotify) featured Myka Nyne, Tash of Tha Alkaholiks, KRS-One, MC Eiht and Percee P. Aceyalone is a founding member of Freestyle Fellowship, a collective that brought an improvisational focus to the Los Angeles underground hip-hop scene in the 1990s. "Subz came up with the idea for 'Bridges' because he felt we needed to do a song about unity in these increasingly divisive times we're in," Eso says. "We couldn't think of a better emcee than Aceyalone to bring on board, as he has a special talent for creating dope songs built off of a single metaphor. Our goal was to create something in the tradition of our heroes The Native Tongues, a track that was jazzy, positive, and upbeat but with a message that the modern audiences could relate to."

 ARTIST # 1:
Anika K

BIO: Before she began her singing career, Anika was a political journalist who spent her time between Berlin and Bristol, England. She happened to meet producer Geoff Barrow, who was looking for a female vocalist to work with his band Beak>, and the pair discovered they had lots of musical common ground: punk, dub, and '60s girl groups. Anika joined the band in the studio and they recorded nine songs, including a cover of Yoko Ono's "Yang Yang," in 12 days with no overdubs. The result, First Lady of Invada, was released by Barrow's Invada imprint in Europe and by Stones Throw in the U.S. and Japan in October 2010. The Anika EP, which featured dub versions of several songs from her debut album as well as covers of songs by the Crystals and Shocking Blue, arrived in April 2013. ~ Heather Phares

Submitted Song for Show and Prove 2018: "Questions"
BIO: Songwriter, rapper, producer and singer Kenyadda formerly known as Kenn J gained notoriety from his 2015 mixtape "Know Ur Worth". After spending 12 years of his life in Chicago he moved to the suburbs where he met Scotty Roze and together, they started the independent label IV$E. He is influenced by artists such as Notorious B.I.G, Tupac, Jay-z, Kanye West, Nelly, Lauryn Hill, and The Temptations. He is known for his soulful music, witty wordplay, and sarcasm. Kenyadda's flow has been described as "a breathe of fresh air with vintage feel" while managing to still make catchy up to date melodies. While honing the title as "Hip Hops Savior" he released his sophomore mixtape titled "Homage" in October 2017 , in which he takes classic hiphop records and approaches them as if they're his own. The release of Homage shows that Kenyadda is here to make his mark in the music industry showing creativity, versatility and longevity.

Show and Prove 18: Featuring Substance Abuse

Check out Substance Abuse's submitted track titled "Don't Get Us Wrong" Feat. Tash
off the EP "Background Music: The Redux":

Los Angeles hip-hop duo Substance Abuse return to hip-hop with their remix EP, Background Music: The Redux.  Consisting of emcee Subz and Eso Tre, Substance Abuse present a work that re-imagines some of the classic tracks first introduced on their critically acclaimed sophomore effort, “Background Music”.
Substance Abuse stick to their trade mark style of socially conscious content. The track “Rear View” featuring KRS-One, tackles the futility of trying to embrace a time period that is gone and never will be again, while still affirming some of the timeless values that people cherished during that era.  Rear View: The Chase Remix embodies a new take on the track played on DJ Premier’s Live From HeadQCourterz radio show as well as many other reputable outlets.
Background Music” refers to the state of hip hop today, explains Eso “where the music seems deracinated of the personality and edge that it once had.”  It also refers to how our music is construed by the masses, people who generally seem to favor the popular over the obscure.  Real hip-hop has been forced to play the “background” to club and dance music that seems devoid of any message or staying power.
After gaining much acclaim for their collaboration with MF Doom on the infectious single “Profitless Thoughts,” Substance Abuse released their debut Overproof in 2006. The album featured SaafirKool KeithMotion ManKutmasta Kurt,RascoThes-One, and MF Doom and received critical acclaim from outlets such as YRBURBScratch Magazine,and 944.  That album was followed by the classic “Background Music”, featuring Tash, Sadat X, Percee P, Myka Nyne, MC EihtKRS-Oneand Max Julien (The Mack).
What looms in the background of today’s music scene are people who are fed up with the current state of affairs and want change. If you’re one of them, check out Background Music: The Redux.

Artist Spotlight: FATIGUE

Ok, here at BlvdAve we're all about showing love to up and coming unsigned talent. One of our own, and founders of Noemi Media group ( Tazo C) is one himself !!! So Enter our special edition ARTIST SPOTLIGHT of ATL artist FATIGUE. He hit us up awhile ago but things have been so busy for us over here at BlvdAve & Noemi Media Group as a whole that we havent had a chance to show him some love. Well Fatigue, you time on the AVE has come !!! Check this young brother out, he's got some talent. Below you will find a download to his single "Life Like a Party" and links to his twitter,facebook, and myspace. Thanks for submitting your stuff to BLVDAVE FATIGUE ! We wish you much success on your musical Journey and see you at the top !!!


They say never judge a book by its cover, but for a Young Mississippi boy, Marcus Ohuonu cover was the only shield of sanity he had while creating feel good music to eliminate memories of a painful past. Born on June 15, the self proclaimed MC started his musical journey during a time when he lost his mother, his grandmother, an aunt and a cousin all to untimely deaths. “What don’t kill you definitely makes you stronger”, said FATIGUE as he talked about his journey to the industry.” I remember breaking peas while listening to blues with my grandmother,” said the rapper, “At that point I knew music would play a pivotal role in my future”. In 1997 he formed the dynamic duo Toy Soldiers alongside a childhood friend where the name FATIGUE was born. With little foundation to stand, the group submerged, and FATIGUE found himself on a college campus composing a 23 song mix-tape entitled, "Brake Yo Self”. As a result of FATIGUE'S local success, he knew it was time for a major change, one that meant uprooting to a bigger city with better opportunities. In a 1989 abandoned white Jeep Cherokee, FATIGUE packed all of his belongings, and moved to Atlanta where he currently resides with a passionate drive, finally living his dream and looking back on everything that happened with a Smile. --Talk About Perseverance!
