iffany has a natural raw talent for creating music that emerges from different music genres and her lyrics can be poetic justice. You might quickly try to classify her music as having a neo soul vibe but then she will elegantly switch the track up on you and have you bopping your head or twerking.  This amazing artist hails from Brooklyn which is why she intertwines hip-hop, pop, R&B and jazz in her style of music. Her sound is collective, creative and her voice is melodic, sensually breathy and dulcet. It is quite evident that Tiffany isn’t afraid of breaking barriers or exploring uncharted musical territories. She finds contemporary music losing itself and emerging into something new and different. By creating and producing her own music she doesn’t have to lose herself to a mass produced sound, style, lyrics or look. She began writing poems that later emerged into songs. She warns that her relationships and situations that she is exposed to in her life become the lyrics in her songs.   She credits her style to the influences of classic artists such as; Anita Baker and Bob Marley. Tiffany looks forward to grow and hopes to musically collaborate with the ever so innovative duo, Missy Elliot and Timbaland. Her biggest supporter was her dad. Sadly, he passed away from lung and throat cancer but even when he struggled he comforted her and made her believe that everything would be fine. She feels like she channels his energy through her music. “Tough Skin” a track on her latest EP lays the foun- dation for the struggles faced within life. Writing and producing is not her only endeavor. Tiffany is passionate about acting.  Her latest endeavors have been working with iHeart radio, The Breakfast Club and The DL Hugely show.

At three years old Letta J started singing in church congregations of thousands of people under bishop T.D Jake’s leadership. Letta J credits the church as well as her Pastor Parents for providing her the foundation for her music. Although her substruc- ture is Gospel music, Letta J loves telling stories to country songs. At the age of seven, J started writing her own music; She says that she feels as if “Contem- porary music as well as R & B are just extensions of gospel.” Gospel music helped her convey her most intimate feelings and thoughts which would later transpire into her music. When asked to give advice to songwriters Letta J says, “If you keep it honest and authentic it is relatable because you are just giving a piece of yourself.” J says she grew up with love songs and enjoys singing it because “once you hear the right song it connects to a piece of you, you might not know.” She likes going “beyond borders and parameters” due to the fact that she is multiracial. J Implements that in the cross over of her music. What has inspired J to make music is the pureness of music. She cannot remember a time when music wasn’t a focal point in her life. Growing up she always had an instrument in her hand or was singing before she could even talk. Even without words, J says the music was so gripping that once the words came into play it was just another add- ed element hooked on emotion. She goes on to say that music is her purpose and that without music she feels like she is not “even living”. When asked what’s the next level for you, J smiles and responds,  “I mean for me, award winning recording artist, i’m already a published songwriter”. J says that in  the next 5 years her goal would be to utilize her entrepreneur interests in creating organizations for inspiring young artists. She wants be be able to creatively provide an outlet for these artists to be the best they can be while crafting their talent. J on her free time enjoys writing and is a part of a publication called Diary of a writer. She writes about the music industry in hopes to inspire and empower all who read.

ibrant, persistent, optimistic and rap’s future… JI The Prince of NY is only 14 year and has conquered the streets of NY and beyond with his rap style.

lthough the hip hop culture emerged through the cracks of the concrete jungle in the 70’s, it gained its respect and rose from its underground success in the late 80’s into the 90’s. Attracting the mainstream and invading the music world, record labels sought out hip hop artists to strengthen their bankroll. There was Bad Boy, Roc-a Fella, and so on. Many rappers gracing these labels brought their crew with them. In the Bronx, a unique group of Latin brothers were rising to the top, the Terror Squad. As rap music emerged on the scene and saturated the market, the people backing the music did not always have a business background and artists sought out opportunity to get in the game by any means necessary. Vulnerable, these performers decided to shine and grace their presences on mixtapes and albums even without deals or contracts. Some would agree to verbal contracts they didn’t quite understand, just to try to get that paper and get out of the ghetto. As much as it was a golden era, it was also a messy time in hip hop as tension and violence grew from coast to coast and within the music groups. By the 2000’s, technology was emerging and music consumption was changing; in effect, record sales quickly declined. In order to keep rising rappers looked to differentiate themselves to con- tinue to live and rise to the top. Some embraced different areas of the music industry, some went on to acting or producing reality shows, while others decided to settle down. The Next Level Magazine re- cently sat down with Cuban Link an original member of the Terror Squad to talk about Big Pun, how Cuban rose to the top and what projects he has been working on.From the start, Cuban Link knew the struggle was real. During the time that hip hop was gaining widespread popularity, Cuban Link took refuge in the United States immigrating from Cuba as part of the Mariel boatlift. Along with his family, he was detained in a US Immigration Processing Center for about six months. Once his family received their green cards, they moved to Puerto Rico and later, to the mean streets of the Bronx. Coming up from the “Halls of Hell”, this lyrical

For one year, he worked success comes from having a sick work ethic, having a tremendous on his album, 24K and sporadically on other projects with Pun and the amount of perseverance and taking risks.

His mission is to bring Big Pun was more like a brotherhood. It wasn’t always about the back the true essence of hip hop but also adapting to what’s out there. music, they played ball together and would go to the gym to box. Although hip hop music doesn’t have clear rules; except as, a voice for Big Pun was always inviting and he helped open the door to the free expression, Cuban feels that the new music is hollow and doesn’t start of Cuban’s career.

So, he was someone the group looked up to and wanted to laments. Cuban states, “Back in the days, a lot of things were done by work with.

merging from the streets of Brooklyn & Far Rockaway, Manolo Rose never envisioned his life as a rapper; but, for this natural born rapper, fame and fortune has been on the rise practically overnight. Recently, he was signed to Memphis Bleek’s Warehouse Music Group under RocNation and is looking forward to gain exposure by taking his album on tour around the US. His lyrical energy bleeds the gritty darkness of the mean streets were violence is king. From “Superflexin” featuring French Montana to “Run Rickey Run”, Manolo Rose provides the harsh reality of the hustle and grind found on the hardcore streets of the urban jungle. Not only has he collaborated with French Montana on several projects but his album, Concrete Rose features Fame School Slim and Telli. As he rises to the top, this overnight sensation is looking forward to work with producers and artists all over the world like Roy Woods, Audio Push, WizKid and Tory Lanez. His formula for prosperity in the rap game is built on the foundation that producing quality pieces requires time, patience and various points of inspiration but that’s what real talent is all about. Although his music is inspired by the violence he observed in his community and depicted in classic urban flicks, he states that it is also a place to have fun and he wants his music to represent both as- pects. Fame and fortune isn’t everlasting and Manolo Rose is differenti- ating his portfolio by looking at getting into tech companies and possibly opening up a marijuana dispensary.
