You don't wanna miss this.
Josh Stone, the promising protege of Public Enemy's Chuck D, debuted his new breakout single today titled "What They Talkin' Bout."
As a producer and CEO of his own Real Vibez Only record label, Stone may not yet be a household name, but has been immersed in the music industry for years. While originally from New York, he was set to be a hockey superstar before an injury sidelined him indefinitely from the game he loved. He turned to music as a way to cope with the stress, and ended up dedicating his life to perfecting his craft.
Over the last decade he's worked for a plethora of different labels, and has collaborated behind the scenes with some of Hip-Hop's biggest stars, from The Diplomats to Uncle Murder of G-Unit. Now, he wants the spotlight for himself, his hard hitting debut seeking to prove to the naysayers that Josh Stone is next up, and that Hip-Hop better brace themselves for his arrival. "'What They Talkin Bout' was created because I can't relate to anything being said and going on in the music industry today," said Stone. "These new artists are following trends and talking about nothing. There's a niche in the market that I'm here to fill."
Check out the single below:
Summer Walker returns and is no longer playing games.
Summer Walker loves creating music but despises the music industry.
She regularly considers retirement and ended her 2019 tour early because of social anxiety. "I hope that people understand and respect that at the end of the day I'm a person, I have feelings, I get tired, I get sad," she said in a video post. "I don't want to lose myself for someone else." She was relentlessly vilified for her decision. Fans cited stiff meet-and-greets and chalked up Walker's cancellations to a sense of entitlement.
Then she was presented with the "Best New Artist" award at the 2019 Soul Train Awards, and her hurried acceptance speech was dissected by tasteless memes all across the country. Walker's candid cries for understanding remained completely ignored by years end. The truth of the matter is that Walker suffers from anxiety and stage fright that is all but totally crippling. So she did what any misunderstood artist does, she disappeared and stopped saying anything at all.
