Whichever way you prefer to consume music, we want to be there!

A few months ago I introduced you to a new StreetRacer artist by the name of Tijon. Today he is back on our blog with more innovative, captivating and unique music. The latest project and upcoming album, Rats, is taking us on a journey through a series of party scenes traveling from generation to generation. So far they've shot scenes mimicking a 90's grunge party at Kurt Cobain's house, and a house party at Jimi Hendrix place in 1969. With more scenes in the making, we couldn't be more excited for this visual time machine to blow us away!

Stay tuned for Rats, and the first single "Party With The Killers" coming out in 2014.

The Journey

the journey Our StreetRacer producers have evolved and their skills improved significantly since you last heard their beats on this blog. So let's take a listen to what's new! Today I want to share with you one of my recent favorites, it's titled The Journey, and makes me feel like I'm walking along a desolate road in the middle of a beautiful landscape. The road ahead has many diverging paths, yet I'm not sure which one to take. This beat reminds us that it's all about that journey, the journey that is long and hard, but nonetheless an adventure. Savour it. What is your journey?

The Prince of Queens

Remember the Underrated Rapper Contest? StreetRacer Productions is proud to introduce you to the champion, concept rapper CJ Prince (@THECJPrince). With his smart lyrics and smooth style this prince has every intention to blow the Big Apple away. 

CJPrince3

Prince draws from his Queens influences of Nas and LL Cool J, taking his listeners on a story with each track. In a business where repetition is abundant, the Prince of Queens tries to think outside of the box and give the listeners a unique experience with each song.  

“My songs’ mean something and reflect my daily struggles whether it’s issue internally with myself, with my girlfriend or with my family.”

CJ recently christened the “Prince of Queens” release at the Static nightclub Astoria, New York. The guests of the event exert a vibe of excitement, New York is in for a surprise. July 16th (tomorrow!!!) "Prince of Queens" will be released on all major mix tape mediums; DatPiff, LiveMixtapes and HotNewHipHop. Keep your eyes on the look out and your ears alert for this fresh Underrated winner...

"Now I feel like a different rapper. It is a process and I feel I am getting better with each track and everyone is gonna see it July 16th.” 

CJPrince2

“ It doesn’t stop here we have so much more ready for the future. I am getting my flow down on tracks; I got new tracks lined up ready to be released. I am gaining popularity around Queens and New York but I want to take it bigger.”

Undeniably Gifted Miinds

I hope you have voted for your favorite artists in the Underrated Rapper contest! We are now down to our final 5 - who do you think should take home the trophy? To take a listen go to www.therealstreetracers.com and VOTE. On another note... I would like to introduce you to one of the artists competing in our contest: Laze, a unique talent part of The Trinity, a rap group based out of Newark, NJ. I was fortunate enough to get in touch with Laze to ask him a few questions about him and his team's company, Gifted Miinds, providing us with a fresh outlook on clothing and music.

giftedmiinds

How did you start your music career?

Gifted Miinds started their career in 2011, all it took was 1 upload on youtube and the reaction from the public. All of our 6 recording artist developed thru a pen and a pad or just a instrumental and rhymes of the top. The Gifted Miinds eclectic group the Trinity has been the face of music since 2011 who include artist Lokii Jay, Lotus and Laze. The Trinity have been creating a buzz with the help of the Gifted Team, performing at gigs, and promoting online. The rest of our recording artist Pharoah, Wize, and Profit have been working on their come up as they hit up the GM studio working on new music. The Newark NJ, based group is sure to bring a new essence to the culture with their rhymes and clothing, be sure to check us out www.GiftedMiinds.com

What is your first memory/encounter with music?

There is a limitless amount of memories in this family, we aren't only a group we are family wether it be just hanging in the basement and freestyling a crazy verse, a funny scene shooting a video, or rocking a crazy show. The most memorable encounter we've experience was our 1st performance at Union County College NJ. It was our 1st show, and there was 2 prizes, $100 from the judges and $50 from the crowd, we were the winners for both prizes taking the $150 home that night! We Performed our track called Armageddon and the crowd immediately connected, we also threw free shirts for the crowd they loved it and so did we, by far that is our most memorable. #JERSEY

[soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/73562049" width="100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]

Tell me a little bit about the idea behind your group - Gifted Miinds? 

The idea behind Gifted Miinds is to connect with the world all the gifted people out there, most importantly our YOUTH. The Gifted is a reference of our talents, our movement, and most importantly our fans, and Miinds includes the double "ii" to reference the groups logo the 2 brained alien that sums up together "Gifted Miinds". We all have a gift, sometimes we feel discourage because of where we come from, the daily struggles we face, or the way we are made specially in our hometown Newark NJ. The ideal purpose and heart of this movement is to inspire the youth, guide them through our music and open their eyes and mind to the world, stick up for Jersey and walk with them thru their life and welcome them to walk along with ours musically.

What inspires you on a daily basis?

    Our inspiration is everything. Where we started and where we stand is an inspiration, the love from fans, our family, and the life in Jersey. The drive comes from our personal struggles, we all have a story to tell, we all have a point to come across, we all have someone to reach out to, we all have lost before, and are searching to gain thru our passion and live through our dreams. You inspire me.

How did you start getting involved with fashion/merchandise? What year did you release the brand?

We first got started with our brand and designing late 2011, we designed through an iPad and sketches and officially released our brand on April 2012 dropping the GM Alien snapback design. Since, we have been producing and have released, sweaters, t-shirts, pins, beanies, and snapbacks for our customers. The brand was created as another outlet for the music to get to consumers, to show a different talent in our art and to give our fans high quality designed products at an affordable price, not for the gain of money but a connection which is richer than anything in this world. All designs are created in-house by Laze and the GM crew. The Newark based brand has gained exposure through music and online sells touching grounds like NY, Texas, Maryland, VA, LA, NJ, all the way to the UK and growing daily. Be sure to check out our clothing. "We all have a Gifted, Lets Wear it"

giftedmiindsmerch

What are some of your proudest accomplishments over the past couple of years?

One of the proudest accomplishments would be when kids messaged us and said they're dream is to meet us, or how we inspired them to do music. Another one is the faith we give people, the strength of believe they shower us with, claiming we are the future for Jersey, it's what means most to us. 

What are the future plans for Gifted Miinds?

Gifted Miinds Entertainment will be releasing new music from our artist, new videos and clothing. We hope to keep reaching out to people across the world and inspiring the youth. Our plan is to be the future, the best is yet to come. follow us, one love, one Gifted. #Giftedmiinds

Stay tuned for more Gifted Miinds...

"New New" by E Dott Valentine's Day Exclusive

What is love? " Love is temporary madness; it erupts like volcanos and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether our roots have to entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because that is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and that is both an art and a fortunate accident.  Those that truly love have roots that grow toward each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two. "

- Louis de Bernieres

StreetRacer Productions has the honor to present to you on this day of love...

"New New" by E Dott Valentine's Day Exclusive!

RealTrendz

We hope you have all stayed safe and warm during the vicious winter weather, and that you've had a happening weekend! StreetRacer Productions will be hosting yet another mixtape within the next couple of weeks, so to keep you in tuned with who the talented artists are...I present to you RealTrendz: P826T8d0

Could you tell me a little bit about your background as an artist?

"Am an artist from San Diego, Ca I consider myself a backpack rapper."

You go by RealTrendz? Is there a story behind your artist name?

"I called myself Real at first but then that dumb ass "I love new York" show came out and a nigga name was real so I went to Trendz because I feel that I don't set trends I'm a Trend setter. I had been know by Real for so long so I just added it on and come up with RealTrendz."

What is your earliest memory with music?

"My earliest memory with music was when I was 11. Me and my cousin was playing around with the computer and Magic music maker and we did our first song called Top Doggs and we called ourselves the Bonafide Hustlers so it stuck. My label is FCMG Flyy Council Music Group and my team I rep is Trouble gang."

Who has been influential in your career?

"People that influence my rap is Lil wayne, the old Drake , the old Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Rockie Fresh, Lil Wayne for his crazy bars. Drake because he is versatile, Wiz for his creativity and Rockie and Kendrick for their realness."

Could you describe this upcoming mixtape that you've been working on? What's the vision, ideas and sound of it?

"This mixtape is going to have you rocking your head back in fourth. It has this incredible feel that you just vibe to and that's just the beats, my flow is real nice on it and I speak the truth of everyday life."

Diamond High Neff Supply-20130131-204200

What's in store for the future?

"For the future, I'm going to do vol.2. I feel that fans are going to enjoy the tape so much and the cover is sick so its really an inspiration because I love music. With my label mate we should be dropping our sequel to our mixtape called Trendy Pilotz."

Why have you chosen to work with StreetRacer Productions?

"I chose StreetRacers Productions because yall look like yall kno what yall doing and yall look like a growing empire and its something I want to be apart of. I love music and I love rapping and StreetRacers can make the difference. Its about respect and loyalty and I know yall have it and with this opportunity I want to do more work in the future." 

What do you think separates you from all the other hip hop artists out there today?

"What separates me from the other artist out is that I am a real guy. Money couldn't change me from the clothes I wear to the music I make and to the lyrics I write. I can make a difference with my music. Im no tupac but I could stand for something as big as him. Most artist do rap for money that's why we have artist like chief keef and the list of people like that but I do it for the love of rap."

Late Nights

A while back we featured rapper Damian Johnson on the blog with his mixtape, "Conscious for Currency". Today he is back with yet another hot mixtape, "Late Nights", which will be released January 31st on Datpiff.com, available for you to listen to and download for free! But let me first and foremost introduce you to the great Damian Johnson...

Could you tell us a little bit about your vision behind this upcoming mixtape?

" I wanted to open up a world where you can listen to music and take what you want from it. It’s a perfect blend of my inner thoughts and my secret fantasies. "

How would you describe the sound of your mixtape?

" I would consider it a fun hip-hop/ party sound. I love to challenge the mind and keep it working but at the same time make good music.  "

Where do you get most of your inspiration from?

" My mother has to be my biggest supporter. From advertising songs to coming to shows. She keeps me moving forward. "

What is your earliest music memory? Do you remember when you started rapping?

" It’s funny because I first started rapping when I was in the 6th grade and my friends would always tell me to shut up. It was one of the only things that I was passionate about. I got better and started making music that they even move to now. "

You've worked with Streetracers a bunch of times, how would you describe your experience collaborating with the producers?

" You can never have too much Streetracer! The best Production team I have ever worked with. They create new sounds that constantly keep you on your toes as an artist. I look forward to more collabs. "

What are your future goals?

" To create a brand of music that the world will recognize and keep making positive moves in life. At the end of the day, I want to read over my life’s story and be proud of each chapter. "
