V-Henny: What made you want to become a player in the music industry?

LV Jay: No it hasn’t been a smooth road as an artist because I’m an independent artist and you have to be organized in order to compete with other artists that are actually signed to these big labels . But to be real I Love the grind and the hustle that come with the music industry. 

V-Henny: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

LV Jay: The best advice I got as an artist and a label owner is you go get out what you put in with this music game. Meaning the more I work the more progression I’ll see and if I don’t work on my craft you won’t see much change.

Meet Sasha Melo

Sasha Melo is an American recording artist, performer and creative from Brooklyn, NY. with a sound packed full of drums, clever lines and a New York spirit. Sasha Melo embarks on a music journey familiar yet uncharted read more below as you learn who is Sasha Melo.

V-Henny: Who inspired you to make music? 

Sasha Melo: To make music & pursue a career in it, my cousin, Worldwiide inspired me. I’d say Aaliyah & Drake as the artists who inspired my approach to the craft & industry of music. Aaliyah showed me whatever your style is, be true to it. Do what you must but add your flavor to make it alright. With Drake’s early music I was introduced to an artist who was emotionally connecting & reflecting on experiences that I also was able to resonate with in a sonically different way. It showed me, another example of how music could transcend through tough feelings & experiences. 

V-Henny: What age did you start writing and recording music?

Sasha Melo: I wrote my first rap when I was 8 in third grade. No beat, acapella & it was the hardest rap ever. I don’t remember the words but there was a vibe there. I first recorded music like songform with Worldwide when I was 15. 

V-Henny: What made you want to become a player in the music industry?

Sasha Melo: My love for performing is what drives me. Growing up, my uncle would play music almost everyday in the house. Different genres, but mostly dancehall, hip hop & rap. He & I would come up with dance routines for me to perform to whatever song was hot in the moment. I wanted to rap the raps, dance the routines & sing. I wanted to do all of it. As I got older, my relationship with music just kept growing deeper. & we’re here now. 

V-Henny: Looking back then to where you’re at now, give me a moment that made an impact within your music career. 

Sasha Melo: Meeting and working with my mentor Jhai Signature, may he Rest In Peace. From our first meeting until our last conversations, he was always an encouraging force. Reminding me to trust my instincts, see the potential in myself as an artist, writer & creative. He came in my life right when I needed guidance, right on time. Helping me to tap in to my talent & channel it “correctly”. It wasn’t easy because he never let up on me, always challenging me to be better than my last take. It was pressure then but it’s the discipline that’s paying off now. I miss him a lot though. Especially after a new music accomplishment but I’m grateful for our time together. 

V-Henny: Has it been a smooth road for you as an artist? 

Sasha Melo: It hasn’t been a smooth road at all & I’m not where my destination is but, the journey I’m on is lit though. 

V-Henny: What were some of the steps you had to take to get to where you’re at in your career?

Sasha Melo: In the middle of a pandemic, my step 1 was to realize who really runs shit concerning me, & it was me. Everything else is out of my control therefore out of my worry zone. My Step 2 was to figure out what to do with the truth of  Step 1. Step 3 was to apply Step 2 & make it work. 

V-Henny: Has the pandemic affected your career? If so, how?

Sasha Melo: The pandemic halted me on one journey in a separate profession & sat me down in stillness. In that stillness I was able to mourn, heal, purge, cleanse, create & begin a new journey, completely different path. Really able to tap back into self which at the time when the pandemic hit was needed. As scary as the unknown was, everything coming to stillness was a reset button I needed.

V-Henny: What projects are you presently working on?  

Sasha Melo: My new single Lionheart is on the way. Near the end of March. Something for the people. A song I hold close to my heart about self courage, an ode to cycles of change & rebirth but heavy on the turn up. I also just finished recording some tracks for my mixtape too. Soon come. 

V-Henny: Other notables you have worked with?  

Sasha Melo: My debut single “Choosy” has gotten some airplay on HOT 97 by Dj Drewski & The New Movement, in addition to Desert Storm Radio via The Last Take podcast. I’ve also performed in the Grind or Starve Showcase and will be performing there March 20th. Pop out. 

V-Henny: Ultimate goal within your artistry ?   

Sasha Melo: My goal is to leave a great entertainer’s legacy behind when I’m finished. To be the best Sasha Melo in the spot. To be able to say I helped pay it forward for the next generation of creatives. When you think of Sasha Melo I want you to get hype, get lit & want to make the most of every moment. 

V-Henny: What is one message you would give to your fans? 

Sasha Melo: To my day one OG fans, thank you for believing in me. Thank you for spending your time on me & supporting me. Dancing, engaging with me at the shows. Being amazing crowds, I humbly appreciate it. Thank you for the streams, the reactions. All of it. To the fans on their way, you right on time, wassup widdit ? Tap in with me.

PROMNGHT: I started writing and recording around the age 15 I should say

V-Henny: What made you want to become a player in the music industry?  

PROMNGHT: I think the whole creating process of it all. I loved the idea of  expressing through my work. Whether it was music or just simply designing. I grew up watching my fav artist perform at award shows, being played on the radio. and etc. All of that was impressive to me and I wanted to do that and finally be appreciated for what I’m good at.

V-Henny: Given the process within your path, give me a moment that made an impact within your music career. 

PROMNGHT: I think my first headline show I had for MajorStage. When so many supporters came out to watch me perform. At that moment I knew this was for me. It was insane and it was so overwhelming. 

V-Henny: Has it been a smooth road for you as an artist? 

PROMNGHT: It most definitely hasn’t and I think most independent artists can vouch for that. I’ve made a lot of bad decisions . Went down the wrong roads, Sacrificed a lot. Went broke.

PROMNGHT: I had to learn how to do things on my own and not depend on others to get the job done.

V-Henny: What is one message you would give to your fans? 

PROMNGHT: Without you guys I would be nothing. I wouldn’t have gotten this far truthfully. We have to treat our fans like our family and acknowledge them. You;re never too “BIG” to acknowledge the people that supported you through your career and got you this far!

V-Henny: Is there anything else you would like the world to know about you?  

PROMNGHT: I am here to stay and not because I am better but because I feel I am different and a breath of fresh air. Truthfully, I’m starting to understand and accept that I am a beast! I don’t give myself enough credit as I should.

We look forward to witnessing his growth as he rises within his career 

Read more below, as I was able to interview DJ Chase

V-Henny: What inspired you to pursue your career as a DJ? 

DJ Chase: I been djing back since in 1998 when I was 12. My father brought me my first DJ set; the gemini xl 100s. I wasn’t really good but it was so much fun and innocent. I actually wanted to be a stock broker. I but God had different plans for me.  My pops was part of the zulu nation. and I just feel right in it. 

Vee: Also, can you speak on your experience, when you starting your career as a DJ, getting gig offers? 

Chase: When I started  to DJ professionally it was fun when I started. I really started booking gigs in college in SUNY Oswego, back in 2005. I started DJing college parties and college radio. and I been doing it ever since. 

Vee: As a veteran in this game, What would you like fans to know about your daily grind?

Chase: lol I appreciate that, My daily grind consists of praying. Exercise, watching my diet. Loads of phone calls, and emails. You have to be very committed. I wake up and don’t check my phone. I stretch. and Clear my mind to start my day. I open my phone and check my schedule and the daily and weekly expenses and budgets. and I take it from there 

Vee: Your goal is to create a legacy, build yourself up as an entrepreneur and reach your highest potential. The sky’s the limit as you would say. Starting your own publishing/production company and independent label, what’s one challenge you overcame that made you want to become a better creative? 

Chase: The One Challenge is dealing with the social media perception of what success is, when your tryna conduct business with people. I’m a very private person. I don’t even have enough time to post every single thing or business deal I do on social media. Plus in the type of business I do and conduct, I can’t post my business dealings on social media. This helps me be a better creative because I learn more meticulous ways to be have more mystique. 

Vee: What makes you stand apart from your competitors?

Chase: I have my own sound and style. I never followed anyone or emulated anyone. I also don’t feel anyone is my competition because I came up different from these industry people, I don’t focus on gossip and politics, I focus solely on the music. 

Vee: If you had a chance to put together a track with 3 major artist who would be on the record and why?

Chase: 50 Cent, Jay-z, Dru Down. The Reason Why I would put them on a record together, as crazy as it sounds I’ve worked with every artist I wanted to work with, growing up. Except these 3. They were my favorite artists growing up. and still are. The other artists I would put have passed away.  

Vee: Your latest project “Rich in spirit” which dropped back in September. Elaborate to us the concept behind the title and the cover art. 

Chase: The title was inspired by God to be honest. This year was rough on a lot of people including myself. I lost a lot of friends. And my final straw was when I had a phone call during the riots and protests for Gerorge Floyd, and I spoke with a representative from a “Major Label” When everyone was tryna exploit and use “black lives matter” as a cloack to exploit young black artists. I really had to scream at him, and I just lost it. So I wanted to just do a positive album and a hybrid gospel album. The cover art was a art piece I had custom made to represent heaven, and just uplift people. 

Vee: From radio, podcast to producing music for artists. Would you say Your love for music is the same as it is for the business?  Please elaborate 

Chase: I mean it’s both. I love the business side more cause I get to travel and connect with high society people that I could never even be around if I only did music. 

Vee: We know that you’re always dropping gems for the culture, inspiring and motivating others to want more. When In doubt, what do you do when you are in need of motivation or inspiration? 

Chase: Honestly I just surround myself with people who really know me. Motivating and helping other people succeed motivates me. All the shit I’ve been through to get to where I’m at now, I still got a chip on my shoulder from it. I know how to channel that memory of when people used to tell me I’m wack, and the people who said I would never make it. 

Vee: What’s next? What are we expecting from you in the near future? 

Chase: The Next Step is a big Office and More Big Singles, and More Blessings From God. I want better health, and to give black people more jobs.

Who is Nicqua B?

I had the privilege to interview Nicqua B on her career and overcoming her struggles. Automatically, I noticed that Nicqua is a vibrant soul, soft spoken yet has a powerful delivery. A creator in many spectrums. A Spoken word artist, musically divine and her brutally honest poetry reflects on the joy and struggles of the modern world. She’s has been doing poetry since the third grade, having her teacher as motivation to pursue her writing career. She has an amazing way of expressing herself. However, as life threw curveballs, facing many challenges like anxiety & depression to losses in her life.  Losing people near and dear to her, Nicqua temporally put her passion on hold from time to time. Nicqua achieved her first hit with her breakthrough EP ‘Who I Am,’ which introduced a wider audience to her dazzling gift for language. As we know, I am a firm believer that passion is power and as time progressed Nicqua passion comes back with power. She made her comeback on a social media platform called “Smooth Lounge R&B and Spoken word artist”, hosted by radio host Lil Nat. She was chosen by her performance and began humbling accepting her comeback. Since the platform experience she kept pushing forward and never looked back. The Native New Yorker released her latest album “The Transition” on August 31st 2020. I’ve enjoyed her eccentric flow on “Use too” to her relatable message on “My Block”. I took a vibe to “Yummy Yummy” as she expressed her melodic pleasures as I was able to connect with her emotions. She is expressive with her words and it truly captivates the listener. You will find her music and social media below as you ready more on Nicqua.

V-Henny: Where in New York are you from?

Nicqua: I am from Uniondale/ Hempstead New York.

As a creator in this industry, has pandemic affected your craft? If so, How? 

Believe it or not, it has affected me in a way whereas it motivated me to write more – so many injustices & the pandemic put together basically gave me the passion to speak on it- we lost so many people due to this pandemic & the constant social injustice is heartbreaking.

Tell us briefly about your recent project ” The Transition”.  

Well, my ep “ The Transition” is actually showing different sides of me. How I am not just a poet – I am hip hop- I am R&B – like so many amazing artists such as Floetry, Common, Wale, Jill Scott, and many more. Also, it represents the growth in me as a spoken word artist ~ as a poet ~ and the phases I went through in life that I conquered. I thought I was dying without a disease besides anxiety – I literally was giving my husband instructions on what I want him to do once I died. So I have come along way thanks to poetry and my family. 

Other notables you have worked with?  

I had another EP called ” Who am I ” during my moments whereas I really down. A lot of written poetry on my page, collaborations with other amazing poets, being apart of a supportive tribe, currently working on a book where it has my poetry and speaks on where I was at mentally while writing that particular poem& I am trying to raise awareness for Mental Health Services. A blog for other artists to be able to have a safe space – creating an open mic night ( Tuesday Nights) coming soon and lastly, merchandise in the works. 

The ultimate goal within your artistry?   

Is to raise awareness for mental health illnesses, give people another form of spoken word artistry – and change people’s lives by making them feel good. 

Is there anything else you would like the world to know about you?  

I am a mother of four and a nurse. I also like to dance – mainly, I just love every goal I’m running towards. 

What makes you stand out from everyone else?

I have no problem touching different aspects of my craft- I’m not afraid to try new things as long as it makes me feel good in my spirit as well as makes my audience feel good as well. I talk about everything – social injustice – slavery – dancing – erotic- love – hip-hop- reminiscent type poems – I try to touch every subject.

What were some steps you took to get to where you are today?   

I stayed Consistent- took great care constructive criticism from other poet and none poets – still learning not to take certain things personally but I have gotten a lot better. Opened me up for open mics – to get more comfortable performing – did my own marketing and promotions- did collaborations with other artists – networking
