V-Henny: Who inspired you to make music? 
LV Jay: As far as who inspired me I would say Lil Wayne  inspired me to make music because he is so versatile and can do a lot and that’s something I strive for in my music myself. My twin brother had introduced me to Lil Wayne music back when we were in middle school. I used to walk around with all his tapes downloaded on my PSP and It was over from then.

V-Henny: What age did you start writing and recording music?
 LV Jay: I actually started writing music at the age of 24 but at first I used to just freestyle with my friends and I eventually made my first track . Most of the time I would go off the flow of the beat & how I’m feeling at the time. But now I actually write my songs out. 

V-Henny: What made you want to become a player in the music industry?
LV Jay: What made me wanna become an artist is the freedom of expression they have and music is something that could help me talk to others that may be going through the same thing I’m going through in life . 

V-Henny: What is your goal with being an owner of a label?
LV Jay: My goal is to have my label big like QC one day and build a label with family vibes that’s very important to me . 

V-Henny: Looking back then to where you’re at now, give me a moment that made an impact within your music career. 
LV Jay: What made an impact on my music from back then to now is seeing my friend Yung JD go so hard and seeing other artists from Florida go hard in the rap game. They make me want it more and become a better artist myself.   

V-Henny: Has it been a smooth road for you as an artist? 
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: If it wasn’t for music I’ll be going to school getting a masters degree or owning a business if I wasn’t focused on my music career . 

V-Henny: What were some of the steps you had to take to get to where you’re at in your career?
LV Jay: The steps I had to take was to find out what kind of artist I am and what kind of music I wanna make . Then after I discovered that I just started working on songs and investing in myself also started networking within the music industry. 

V-Henny: What projects are you presently working on?  
LV Jay: I’m working on a mixtape that I’m making with Yung JD right now. It’s going well so far and will be a hard tape. The tape will have 10 tracks on it. 

V-Henny: Who would you most like to collaborate with?
LV Jay: I would like to work with Lil Wayne , Future , DMX , Lil Durk, No Cap , Lil Baby , Polo G , Lil Tjay and Drake and many women artists like Summer Walker and Cardi B.

V-Henny: What is the best advice you’ve been given to pursue your goal as an artist and a label owner?
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. 

V-Henny: Is there anything else you would like the world to know about you?
LV Jay:  I would like the world to know that I’m going to be the next big artist coming out of Florida.

Meet The Other Shade

The Other Shade is a multifaceted artist in which he is known to be a talented R&B singer, a producer and owner of his own clothing brand. Pushing his artistry to become a notable powerhouse, the Virginia native is making a name for himself as he set the tone throughout the industry. Pyro Da Arsonist had the pleasure of interviewing him as you learn more on who is The Other Shade.

Pyro Da Arsonist: Please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us what do you do and where you are from.

T.O.S: Thank you for having me, I’m an R&B artist named T.O.S. Also known as The Other Shade. I own a clothing company called KALIFRAGALISTIC, and I also produce beats for movies and musical artists of different acclaimed levels.

Home used to be Fairfax, Virginia, in my early life I moved around different areas in the same county till I came to college in Morgantown at WVU.

Pyro Da Arsonist: Why did you choose The Other Shade as your stage name?

T.O.S: I remember I was making my first Instagram account in the middle of 7th grade and I wanted to make a name no one will think of but that represents me. To me the other shade offers colors and the shade between the lights of things. Basically I’m just always the other aspect.

Pyro Da Arsonist: What or who inspired you to become an artist?

T.O.S: Big L, Rick James, The Weeknd, Tupac, and Nas were the biggest influences when it comes to greats in music. I had two close friends that passed at the beginning and the end of 2020, those two were my most physical influences which is what pushed me to be the no look back artist I am today.

Pyro Da Arsonist: How would you describe yourself as an artist and describe your sound?

T.O.S: As an artist I see myself as very detailed and extremely personable. It’s always been hard to show my emotions but I found the easiest way to express is through music because I can only judge myself. The sound that comes out is very cinematic and has been compared to films more than day to day music.

Pyro Da Arsonist: What project are you currently working on and what kind of feedback have you received from your current single?

T.O.S: So I’m working on my studio album called  “D’evils of beauty” that I’m recording at IMI studios throughout the month of April. My current single “All in Ones” will debut and mark the first release of the project. After submitting to music reviewers I’ve had nothing but positive feedback, the most negative comment was a better mix-down which IMI studios will undoubtedly take care of in April.

Pyro Da Arsonist: What is one of your most memorable performances and why?

T.O.S: I would say my very first one at 123 pleasant St. in Morgantown. It was a beat battle and we had a whole promo and everything for the area. It was my first taste of the life I always felt needed me.

Pyro Da Arsonist: Have you ever had a bad performance and if so how do you move past it without letting it affect your confidence?

T.O.S: My second beat battle had more of a randomness to it, my competitor had lost their father just a few days before so it kind of dulled the atmosphere. I noticed I felt sympathetic but I realized no matter what music is music and pushed forward.

Pyro Da Arsonist: In this age of social media what do you feel is more important in an artists success, talent, number of followers or an investor?

T.O.S: In this age I would say investors for sure, money makes the world work that much faster for you. Social media makes chances more available for the everyday artist but no matter what money comes into play at some point.

Pyro Da Arsonist: What words of wisdom would you give to those who want to start a career in music?
T.O.S: My best advice would be that if it’s been your gut feeling over multiple years and you keep ignoring it? Don’t. That’s how history gets lost. Those artist with a natural tug to them are the ones to watch out the most for because they’re usually behind the scenes till they realize they are the scene.

Thank you for sitting down with The Artistry and we wish you lots of success in all you do.

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.

Peter Leo & Kastro Zaytana Release “Tear Ish Up”

Written by: Julz Mancini

As I have made my way through the dense population of rap artists within the music scene, I have recently come across several who stay true to the fundamentals of Boom Bap. To many, boom bap was something of the past. However, it has been made abundantly clear that this style of music is still very much alive. It portrays that there remains a continued desire for relatable messages via authentic lyricism.


“The Will of the Genji” (TWOTG) is a musically inclined group in which consists of five talented creatives whom utilize the foundation of hip-hop to create their projects. From the United States to South Africa, “The Will of the Genji” is a collaborative team that includes Peter Leo (U.S.), Kastro Zaytana (U.S.), Alias (South Africa), L Tip (South Africa), and San the Instru- Monumentalist (Lesotho, South Africa). The group released their self-titled debut album in 2019 with their sophomore album “The Will of the Genji 2” following shortly after. Reaching audiences far and wide, the group has developed a buzz internationally. With their obvious knowledge and appreciation for the fundamentals of hip-hop, “The Will of the Genji” makes certain they showcase their abilities within every track they release. With the ongoing success related to their sophomore album, the group was featured in “Insomniac Magazine”. One of the singles from this project, “The Hands of Time” was placed on “Insomniac Magazine’s” popular “Hip Hop 10 List”, a weekly list revealing the most sought-after songs and artists, during September of 2020.


It is seldom I come across a unified group of artists whom blend and combine their unique sounds to create a well-rounded project filled with captivating production, catchy hooks, word play, punchlines, and soul snatching stories. There is no question “The Will of the Genji” embraces the culture while also presenting an innovative style to their audience. “Tear Ish Up” was recently released displaying the talents of lyricists Peter Leo, Kastro Zaytana, and producer Alias. This track, along with the video, brings the audience back to a time when flashy materials, naked women, and flexing in the club were of little to no significance. The video, while simple, has the viewer focused on the most important aspects of the project; the lyrics and production. Throughout the video, it is apparent the artists share the same love for the Boom Bap heritage in which is so deeply rooted within the group.


“Losing my sight. I often use my four other senses. My intent is moving these bricks out to Memphis. Look, hoes can tag along and ship the cargo piff embargo. There is no if tomorrow. Sip my sorrows. Spin the bottle. Turned into spin the barrel. Now this ain’t Russian roulette. They try to gift the gab you till they misses kiss the shadows.”


While listening and watching, I couldn’t help but to nod my head and repeat the lyrics. Peter Leo and Kastro Zaytana were in sync with one another adding a special dynamic to the song and music video. The visuals matched the song perfectly; raw, gritty, and symbolic. As I watched the two artists in action, I noticed they were the purest forms of themselves throughout the music video further proving that they embody the life and vision of true hip hop artists.

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.

Shorty Jah “The Only way is Up”

We are sitting down with Shorty Jah, an artist from the Brownsville section of Brooklyn as we watch him pursue his passion. The name “Shorty” came from him embracing his height as he felt the uniqueness within the nickname. Determined and hungry for success, Shorty Jah has made the effort to use his voice as motivation and share his story. His drive has placed him to perform at legendary venues such as SOB’s , Bowery Electric and BlackTop Boston, amongst other venues. Along with a bright .,future ahead of him, we are looking at a rising star ready to take over the industry by surprise. Shorty Jah the only way is up.

Pyro Da Arsonist: How would you describe yourself as an artist and how would you describe your sound?

Shorty Jah: As an artist I would describe myself as an electrifying exciting rockstar / artist that express his upbringing and creativity to his music. I would describe my sound as a very unique interesting flow because usually I switch my tones in majority of every song. Sometimes I may even switch my tone and flow on one song to keep my audience interested.

Pyro: The indie music scene is saturated with artists so what would you say sets you apart from the rest?

Shorty: The things that set me apart from other artist would be my style, my sound , my energy & my heart. I have 100% gatorade all the time i’m not an artist that just have to portray an imagine, everything they see from Shorty I live and i’m like this all the time.

Pyro: What are some characteristics you think an artists needs to be successful in their careers?

Shorty: In my opinion I feel as if artist should be themselves no matter what and be confident while doing it. Also the main thing I would express as an artist I feel if you don’t put fourth the effort and go 100% for yourself no one else will. So believe in yourself confidently and express that in your music & those successful traits will help you grow upon you.

Pyro: If music doesn’t work out for you do you have a back up plan or anything else you’re passionate about?

Shorty: Definitely, if music didn’t work out for some reason then I would be interested in doing modeling especially for different clothing brands. I love clothes and that’s another way that I express myself so that would definitely be something else I will be interested in.

Pyro: If you had the opportunity to be mentored by someone that can help you progress in your career who would it be and why?

Shorty: This is a great question i’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, if i had the chanced to be mentored by someone else other than my father it would definitely be Master P. Master P and myself have a very similar upbringing especially how he entered the industry. Master P also played basketball coming up, and so have I. I also love how Master P came into the industry with his own style and flavor and that’s definitely something I will do.

Pyro: In this age of social media and digital marketing do you feel like an artist needs to be signed to a major record label in order to be successful?

Shorty: In today’s age and with social media being a very highly influential market, I feel as most artist don’t really need a major record label , but having one can definitely still help an artist reach his or her fullest potential.

Pyro: What would you say is the difference between a track & a record?

Shorty: The difference between a track and a record would be a track is just an audio that’s recorded with lyrics on it. A record is a properly mix down audio with interesting lyrics that may keep the audience interested.
