For the love of music

A glamorous show is always worth showing off. This year's Grammy Awards reminded us of our goals and aspirations, the artistry and passion we share for music. We love watching the many characters, couples, fashionistas and one-of-a-kinds. Find all the great highlights HERE!

What Are You Chasing?

Abigail is born to create

image10 This week's #BTC is a blogger who is determined to provide a voice for others through her own. Abigail Rayson started up My Girls Tour with ambitions to create a platform for the young community to express and engage in multiple facets of life.

Despite the under 21s having a love for travel, and the majority being in full-time education, I feel that young adults are being made to choose between entertainment and information. But why should we? After all, the trends and styles that we are learning about and wearing, were they not originally created by new fresh minds? Are they not some of the best emerging artists, researchers and professionals fresh out of college? Why, as vibrant multi-faceted demographic, are we taught to seperate culture from fun and careers from creativity?

- Abigail Rayson

The content on My Girls Tour is all original. Abigail uses herself and her life as the subject matter and explains that in many aspects it becomes "a subconscious performance". She allows for the environment in which she places herself, to constantly change, but makes sure that she remains the same - true to her mission.

Rooftop Celebrations

This weekend the StreetRacers were invited to an exclusive rooftop event put on by Everyday People, on the Lower East Side at the DL. The party was in light of Saada's birthday, with entertainment and exclusive shows from Janelle Monae, Chef Roble, DJ Moma, Wondaland, and many more. The day could not have been more perfect for a brunch party. Not only was the vibe and music inspiring, so were the people, in all colors and fashion. For more upcoming fun - check out @EVERYDAYPPLNYC on Twitter!

W.H.N.BF

Here's a sneak peak of what's been cooking in the producer's studio! We love the playfulness and party-popping sound, it's almost as though you hit play and land in a city-based club with nothing but fierce dance and fun. Perhaps something you'd party to with your friends? Let us know!

Limelight

So what really makes someone famous? And who determines what fame is...? Those are some recent thoughts that have me pondering lately. All the while, I watch the StreetRacer producers work harder than ever: produce and create great content, make connections and reach out to the people, to you guys. But what really is it that decides who makes it and who doesn't?

Living and working in the heart of New York, you end up seeing famous people quite often. The hysteria surrounding celebrities is quite remarkable. I can't help but question if fame = talent? Or if it's all just a facade.. Well, there has to be some talent in there, but maybe with a larger scoop of luck?  I'm curious to hear what you think about fame. Share your thoughts!

Sunny Sundays

Happy Easter Everyone!

The sun is finally beginning to hit us with its warm rays. How are you enjoying this lovely Spring weather this weekend? Sometimes I wonder if it all just and illusion, or if we really do feel better when the sun pays us a visit. Lately the SRP Team has been working on a major online makeover. I cannot spill all the goods quite yet, but keep your eyes and ear open people, great stuff is coming your way, and we cannot wait for you to be apart of the journey with us!

Celebrating Iverson

It was an honor and complete thrill for the StreetRacer Team to be invited to Allen Iverson's retirement party at the Soundgarden Hall in Philly last Friday. It was nothing short of an entertaining and happening event with many unexpected guests - Mutombo, DJ Clue, legendary Bun-B, Guordan with Meek Mill's Dream Chasers, and Coley with the Revel Music crew were all in the house. Looking back on Iverson's career it has made me ponder on the harsh, but incredible road to success, and how hard work should never be underestimated. Ask yourself, what makes you think that you can make it?

Here's a peek at some of the highlights of the night!

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

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...
