2012 “Philly Hiphop Awards” Female Cypher Featuring Asia Sparks, Mek46St, Isis Tha Saviour, Tiani Victoria, B Dot Holla, Ms. Caddi & Tha Phoxx! All I can say is that Philly has some serious Female Talent and it is only a matter of time before we see them rocking the stage here in NY.
Now I got to get my major label hat on here and give you my opinions. They are all SPITTIN’!!! No doubt about that and I think each of them could have their success if they get their business right. But the two that stand out to me are Tiani Victoria and Asia Sparks. Tiani has showcased herself as a deep song-writer and with DJ Circuitbreaka running her team she has that bridge to radio and clubs in the city. Asia has tough delivery and has been getting major exposure in Philly thanks to the hustle of her savvy manager, Sonji B. Either way Philly can be the next city to TAKEOVER!!!
Fabolous and Pusha T team up for their new video – Life Is So Exciting. I love this video and think it symbolizes 2013 – the visuals will be slick, cool and clean. Black x White will be back. Lyrically both these heavyweights do their thing.
Rita Ora returns with her new single “Radioactive.” Great, song for the winter months and perfect for getting the home-base, European audience. Has that Top 40 appeal in the US and can see it having success. Not sure if it can compete with some of the 4th Quarter records out there at the minute, but represents Rita and her outgoing nature well. Spin it in the clubs DJs!!
