Jahn Dough shares new release ‘The Garden Project’

By Damilola Grey

Jahn Dough has finally dropped the highly anticipated release The Garden Project. The 13 track tape features LaVoyce, Dizzy Wright, Helen Hailu, Unc Jr, Honey Daii, and Syo, as well as others. It also boasts of production from Donny Domino, Boy Jugo, Stillwater Max and more.

The project has a track for every vibe like a personal favorite of mine “Tuff Luv” where Jahn talks about his feelings and obsession for a woman, to “Gratitude” where him and $Tone, as the title implies, show their gratitude for everything from loyalty to peace to rainbows and more. Jahn didn’t disappoint with this project as his flow, amazing delivery and top tier production made this an album to remember. The featured artists also brought their A-game to this project.

When I asked the Dallas native what the project meant to him, he said “to me, this project means growth. Allowing oneself to grow and nurture the things we really want in life. I hope everyone walks away knowing anything they want in life, whether its peace, financial stability, fitness, or whatever it may be can be attained but it starts from within. You have to plant those seeds, nurture the soil and water your soul”. The Garden Project is Jahn planting the seeds of greatness, and we can’t wait to see what else he has on the way.

An Interview With Rising Artist Bimpin

By Avinash Singh

  1. Hi, Bimpin! How are you?

I’ve been feeling good, mentally and physically. 

  1. Where are you from?

I’m from Chicago and still live here to this day.

  1. How did you get into music?

I have always been surrounded by music since I was little. Both my brothers have really guided me towards different styles of music, which makes me a versatile artist today.

  1. What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

Seeing my numbers grow always feels like achievements to me and knowing there are people out there that really pay attention to me also feels like an achievement. Being recognized by The Recording Academy and major press publications are also some great gains. 

  1. What are 3 words that describe your music?

From my point of view 3 words that define my music specifically are unique, forward-thinking, meaningful.

  1. What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

Life has its ups and downs and money doesn’t define who you are when it’s still nice to have money. 

  1. Who inspires you the most musically?

My sound is influenced by rappers such as Young Thug, Gunna and Quavo while I’m inspired by artists such as Lil Baby, Travis Scott and Lil Wayne.

  1. Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

I feel Quavo and I’s sounds are extremely similar but also extremely different at the same time. A song where we work together and work with meaning would come out very well. 

  1. Tell us about any new music you have coming out?

I am about to drop a song called 2Life with Henny Hermes, KILJ and production by Stafford Beats. 2Life is written about success and fortune while mentioning personal experiences that were made to get there and to go forward. 

  1. Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

I want them to know even though I’m next up and grinding to get there, at the end of the day I’m just a regular 14 year old kid from Chicago learning my way through life.

Savvy Mcfly impresses with debut single, “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now”

By Trey Fox

While the South Carolina rapper Savvy Mcfly officially made his debut today, he showed the world flashes of skill and charisma on his “2010 freestyle” in March. On that record, he shined alongside fellow CQCX rappers King $ly and Lil Du Bois. Mcfly has returned in a similar vein, with an honest approach to lyricism and a well-crafted, catchy hook.

Mcfly paints a vivid picture of past memories, reminiscing about being a kid and learning to grow through exploration. He recalls fun experiences with friends, roaming the neighborhood until the infamous street lights beamed across his face. With fond memories beginning to blur as he gets older, Mcfly is still able to pull from his past. “Picking up the pieces, then create another fire verse,” he says proudly. 

Mcfly has found his footing and confidence despite previous spells of self-doubt. The song’s hook is melodic and captivating. “Feet don’t fail me now,” Mcfly cries out. His mountain peak is in clear view, and he knows he’s getting closer. He recognizes he’s on the right path, one that he says his parents are proud of. While the journey has caused some fatigue, he assures us that “baby came around and she grabbed the baton from me.” With support from the people he cares about and undeniable talent, Mcfly’s ascent into music is becoming a reality.
