During her artist review she stated “she was impressed with the track and it is dope as hell” Unlock the street by CityEmpire Entertainment song was also reviewed by Tony Wrecks from Houston, Texas his I wanna Ball (Freestyle) truly provides a southern repsentation of Hip Hop that the Houston community should be very proud of. In his artist review he stated to keep up the hard work and it will pay off. When I watched the music video on his page while taking care of my new born son. I did not have the sound on but I noticed his BBQ grill on the track with his body language it reminded me of the finger circus I used to do by myself it was true flame 🔥. Then when I heard the words he said “his friend came up” thats all that matters to me when I hear raps sometimes in the middle of our own grind did someone come up beside yourself and he “A+” it.

It was very thoughtful and he also took the time to recognize other local artist who worked music in that area such as Quinton Covington and El Dorado highschool alumn and Casini who uses spoken word over instrumentals.

Out of the University of Texas at El Paso Christopher Tyrone Whatley took creative writing with professor Jeff Sirkin who has been the author of the poetry collection “Traveler’s Aid Society” ( Veliz Books, 2016)

He was an inspiration to CityEmpire Entertainment “living the DREAM” and documenting it along the way. In doing so CityEmpire Entertainment was able to find the Skye and believe people can be Christian or just good people.

In the process I’ve discovered as an edgy El Paso, Texas native who aims to deliver hope in tales that walk the fine line between glorifying thug life and telling it like it is.

Schooly D started gangsta rap and knowing his story was amazing.

ICE T stated on hip hop evolution that people were pop locking and breaking in Los Angeles. He was never jumped in but was an affilate weariing the colors. But not a hard-core gangsta member. In knowledge he did say if you get connected to players you end up with a backwards situation.


Doing what is right becomes for suckers and you are living in a world with all these villains and scoundrels and you end up taking pride in that. Then said “It’s really Strange.”
Being the Vice President of the Black student Union i was thinking this giving the best advice I had as possible. CityEmpire to me ment BLACK STUDENT UNION. But as my own person I rept it myself. Gaining friends along the way.

From the University of Texas at El Paso i was taught to document the game.

I made this song to capture my college experience and motivation. Along with sharing the history of the first team to start 5 African American athletes and win a college basketball championship. Texas Western.

The first verse discusses beef amongst ourselves and people. By using our mind to open a door of opportunity. This is the chorus.

opening verse: 1st kings the 7: don’t forget the 5
in scripture shows the” window in King Solomons temple”

Don Haskins in this case saw starting 5 African American men in a National Championship as a window of opportunity.

follwing verse: Everyone headed to the north.
Just like slaves we try to escape but lose ourselves in the process or a peice of what we try to accomplish.

follwing verse: Come like Lazarus back in time..
When you keep faith and stay on you’re path you have the ability to pick yourself back up from the past and change other people in the process.

following verse: Make the chains come off, now he on another grind. With the right attitude our mistakes become lessons and not obstacles. You can break the chains off someone you know and get them to their destination.
#Optimistic people do it all the time. @Ringseason
