RELATED: Angie Martinez Resigns From Hot 97 After Over 15 Years
But what is more shocking to me is the rumors surrounding her departure. Remember Angie was considered the “voice of New York” and she dominated the airwaves in the afternoon for a long time. Well, here are the rumors! The craziest part of the rumors is that Angie Martinez may be going to POWER 105! The word on the street is they offered her crazy money and she couldn’t refuse it! If Angie goes to Power, that would be a huge shift in landscape of radio. These guys have been at war for quite some time now. Anyway, it seems like the Hot 97 gang is taking it stride and congratulating Angie.
Peep this tweet from Power 105…

When DRex released his first album (“Hustler/Rapper”) on Datpiff.com in Fall 2011, it taught him the power of connections and networking even without the marketing tools he needed. Even today the “Hustler/Rapper” album has a guaranteed hot tracklist for music heads who know the power of DRex, telling the truth with tracks like “My Life”, “Faghettaaboutit”, “Trappin” (with Gorilla Zoe), and others:
But for DRex, music was never far away. It wouldn’t be long before he was campaigning for a DRex new single, “Where You From” now available on iTunes and YouTube, and telling his truth to more and more fans online and in local clubs.
DRex and his Raw Ent street team set out to hit the streets grinding his newest mixtape entitled “The Streets is Watching”, hosted by DJ Bigga Rankin, one of the hottest DJs down south. This mixtape is also on Datpiff.com, and features tracks from Hell Rell and Gorilla Zoe.
Successful rappers need the right street cred, and DRex worked that in with other established artists:
Along with his work with fellow rappers, DRex has mixed with producers Wil C – Streetheat Ceo, Sy Fire, and Melody Child, and his work is gaining more traction with WorldstarHiphop.com, YouTube, and many other sites.
Savannah fans know DRex from local hotspots and shows in the greater metropolitan area. He has recently toured throughout New York State, Connecticut, the greater Chicago Area, Minneapolis, and across Michigan, and keeps a busy calendar of upcoming dates. Check back for further performance information and new releases from DRex. New single “Where You From” is now a big up-and-comer on the rap scene. Don’t miss it!

The rapper born Torrence Hatch was released from the Louisiana’s Angola State Penitentiary Wednesday night (March 5) at 7:10 p.m., Warden Burl Cain told WAFB.
The Baton Rouge native was then transferred to a sheriff’s department facility in St. Francisville, where he was welcomed home by family members.
Boosie has been incarcerated since June 2010, when he was brought up on first-degree murder charges stemming from the October 2009 shooting death of rap artist Terry Boyd. Boosie was accused of paying then 19-year old Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding to kill the 35-year old man, but was found not guilty in May of 2011 after a week of testimony and jury deliberation.
In November of 2011, months after being found not guilty in the murder trial, Boosie pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiring to smuggle drugs, which resulted in his eight-year sentence.
The Bad Azz spitter’s release comes before the Louisiana Department of Corrections officially scheduled date of May 20, 2014.
Boosie’s record label, Atlantic Records, has organized a press conference for the “Independent” MC Monday, March 10 at 1 p.m. at the W Hotel in New Orleans.
“He will absolutely be there,” an Atlantic Records representative said. “He’ll be speaking to the press for the first time, after his release.”
The invitation, which was sent to multiple news outlets, reads: “Trill Entertainment and Atlantic Records invites you to hear #BoosieSpeak.”
“I’ve coped by knowing in my heart that I’m someone special who many people love. If you lose hope in yourself, you’ll make your time hard. I always felt that my mission wasn’t complete. I feel I haven’t reached the star power that was destined for me,” Boosie wrote in a letter to Spin last year. “That makes me keep writing and thinking of ways to better myself as a man and artist. When it feels like the world is on my shoulders, I look at my pictures from when I was free and it gives hope and determination to pushing.”
Lil Boosie, who earned his GED while in prison, will remain on parole until 2018.
We wish Lil Boosie and his family nothing but the best. Change is a step ladder to greatness.
DjBigO317 says goodbye to his mother Christel Helga Krieger who has passed on do to Brain And Lung Cancer on 12-18-2013
Story by Charlee Smiles Publicist
Warning this video content is really Heart Breaking, view at your own risk. I have had the pleasure of meeting the proud mother of Oliver DjBigO317 Jackson when I used to work for SyYung and MossdaBeast back like in 2011 when Big O used to do promo and manage them. Ms Christel was a real fire cracker she was fast to tell you if you were out of line. I was really touched when she reached out to me via phone when she texted me and started chatting with me. Once she moved to Indianapolis with Oliver DjBigO317 Jackson her son about 11 weeks ago, I received some shocking news from Ms.Christel that she was in the hospital for a headache and she found out she had Cancer. I remember it like it was yesterday she called me and said Charlee I just found out that I have Cancer, I don’t know how my son is going to take it, he is out on Tour with kCAne MarkCO up in New York City. The doctors and his wife already told him via by phone. Alot of you didn’t know but DjBigO317 just beat Cancer with in the last year. I didn’t want to call him cause I knew he took it hard on the phone. Fast forward to Dec 12th 2013 I get a another heart warming phone call from Ms.Christel and DjBigO317 wanting to know if I could come to spend the weekend with Ms.Christel, while DjBigO317, DjSquad574 her grandson and DjPunch317 were going back out on tour with kCAne MarkCO to promote the SONY single “Let Her Werk It”. While they left I was at the house with Ms.Christel, his sister Heidi and his Wife. At bout 04:30 hrs she asked to go to the hospital because of the pain she was in, who would of known that was the last time I would see her again at home!
