This is a REAL Soul Artist right here and you know that's a rare find these days. His name is George Tandy Jr. and I know you've probably already heard his single titled "March". I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. This brotha is original, talented, he writes, he plays music and to top it off he's real easy on the eyes!

It's rare in todays times to meet an artist with even a realistic goal when it comes to their musical pursuits let alone a direction. More rappers than there is an audience, is what can be described as today's culture. One person striving to leave their footprint in the sand musically and in general is the Westside of Harlem resident, Niti Tahiti; with his The Garden Mixtape currently available, and plans to make more noise in the coming months and years, Niti Tahiti is on the right path. Check out our exclusive interview with the upstart, and get to know his goals, his motivation, and his brand
UGC: How does being from Harlem impact your style and sound ?
Niti: Harlem has always had a reputation for being flashy and fly. That was always the image growing up, so that's what motivates me to talk what I talk. I'm not trying sound like nobody; in fact, I don't know how to sound like nobody. My sound is original and pure but I try to be as versatile as possible.
UGC: I've heard you mention that you have dreams of being on the big screen, some ppl may say that you need to be realistic. For those who doubt, can you put it into perspective for us what your goals are industry wise
Niti: I wanna leave a mark. I want every song to be a hit or damn near if I'm lucky. I'm thinking longevity so that I can be in a position of power and become my own boss. I wanna be mentioned even when it's not about music. I wanna be relevant. Most of all I want to be a leader for my generation.
UGC: Where did the name Tahiti come from, that’s unique- does it have anything to do with the island?
Niti: It sort of does . The name was a product of me being creative at the time. Some of my friends laughed, and to be honest I laughed with them but eventually they got the idea of where I was heading with it. I'm cool like Tahitian weather. I'd like to visit the island one day; that's another one of my goals on a personal note.
UGC: What are your earliest memories of falling in love with Hip Hop?
Niti; My parents and family were big fans of the legendary 2PAC. They played his songs throughout the house; I remember that vividly from my childhood. My first cassette was his greatest hits. I knew his lyrics by the age of 7. Besides his lyrics being explicit I guess it was alright because he was more than an artist and from that day, the motivation was planted in me.
UGC: When did you begin to write rhymes, and what was the motivation?
Niti: I started writing rhymes in junior high school. I loved writing in school but sometimes I was bored. So instead of doing the assignment on the board I would be trying to write a song in the back pages of my notebook. From there it turned from a hobby, to a passion on mine.
UGC: What was the first project you put out ? How long did it take you to finish it? What was the most insightful song or personal song on the project?
Niti: My first project as a solo artist was The Garden. I started recording it March 2013 and Release it June 2013. The track FAMOUS (Prod. By Money Makaz) got a lot of great feedback. I've always heard there is a lot of potential on that song and I feel everyone can relate; when I first heard the beat, I felt like my soul left my body and I went to another place. Sometimes it's hard to believe that's me on them verses. Another song is Love for you (Prod. By Track Officialz). I'm talking bout music and artist, how much it affects me.
UGC: Any visuals coming soon ? Who are some of the artists and producers you worked with on the project?
Niti: Yes! Visuals will be released real soon. I worked with Oun P on the track "Keep It Hood" (Prod. By The Cratez) I also worked with close friend Al Negro formerly known as Budda Bless and fellow friend, singer Rell Cox.
UGC: How do you feel about the landscape in Hip Hop right now and the influence that social media has on how we get new music, as well as the pressure placed on artists to be an open book?
Niti: I honestly feel it's not fair to artist. I'm not just speaking as an artist but as a fan of Hip Hop. Too many rappers and not enough talent. Every body raps now this is the new game of basketball. What are the odds of becoming the next big superstar in Hip Hop ? The chances are slim to none. Who doesn't have a music link on their social network. The game is so twisted that people who never did music are coming out of no where. I can't take that from them. Everybody complaining but no one is taking responsibility. Everybody's judging and pointing fingers especially in New York. It's difficult.
UGC: Where can the fans and supporters get updates on your music, and forthcoming shows?
Niti: They can get updates on my all social media feeds, which I would like everyone to follow and engage with me through. These are:
Facebook: Niti Tee
I update daily regarding my new music , shows and other aspects of my adventures as a rising artist.
UGC: Where can they find your music currently?
Niti: Currently my music is on sound-cloud via my page: Niti Uptown. Also my mixtape is on

“Rappers rap, MCs put on shows.” T. Parris
Born Terry Parris, T. Parris began his life in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY. At the young age of 3, he moved to Harlem where he was raised by a remarkable combination of his grandmother (his greatest inspiration), the mean streets of Harlem, and his dad, when time and circumstances permitted. His other influences include such diverse minds as Marvin Gaye, Nas, Magic Johnson, Malcolm X, Dr. King and Tupac Shakur.
T. Parris has lived a difficult life. It was through the writing down of his tribulations and hardships that he realized his gift as a writer. It was through the ensuing noteworthy street buzz created by his writing that his talent as an MC was realized. While T. Parris was busy writing classic lines he was simultaneously setting the stage for his future, clearly demonstrating his drive to succeed.
In an effort to make the most of his obvious abilities, T. Parris has been focused on writing and rhyming for over 10 years. While many would be content to let someone else hold the reigns of their budding career in order to focus on writing, T. Parris has performed in places from S.O.Bs in New York to Atrium in Atlanta, he has also performed on Rikers Island for the youth – with his energy and hunger playing an integral role in every opportunity he has created for himself.
T. Parris started out with a group from Harlem called M.E.N., who made a huge name for themselves independently. This lead to the birth of T. Parris “the Artist”, stepping out of the norm and displaying that he has the talent to rise to the top, going from being part of an all-star line up to a solo MVP in this hip hop game.
As a solo artist T. Parris has released 1 LP CD, 3 solo mix-tapes, 1 collaborative CD, his own DVD and is currently working on an album project. While on his mission to secure his status in the mainstream, T. Parris has made it abundantly clear that any and every microphone is fair game!
When listening to his rhymes and the thought-provoking wordplay therein,
"…3 mc's 2 Degrees 1 Felony / the end of the road, the only thing ahead of me...” T. Parris
It becomes clear that T. Parris is definitely among the top lyricist in the game.
Lyrics like these lead one to believe that Parris is not only a writer but also a revolutionary and a trailblazer - a pioneer. However, it is his actions that solidify him as an activist, constantly giving back to the community. Who was the last MC you know to graduate with a Master’s degree, encounter a felony, and still find the passion to deliver countless inspirational songs?
To some he is the Rakim of his era, to others he is the Langston Hughes of his genre - either comparison leads one to believe that T. Parris is a great look for hip-hop music and definitely a breath of fresh air.

Empire State of Grind Entertainment own Kony Brooks is a well rounded individual; Music Artist, Ghost Writer, Musical Mentor, Lyrical Teacher, Basketball Coach and Rap Game Entrepreneur are some of the hats that this Bronx native wears.
Born in the 90's in Southern Blvd section of the Boogie Down Bronx, the multi-talented indie artist is on a journey to take over the music industry. Starting at the tender age of 7, wrote his first rhyme for a school project. At that time, the potential was there, but maturation was needed; At age 11 he revisited the subject of composition, feeling that he was better equipped and with that he as well as others noticed that if taken, serious, music was in his future. At the behest of lifelong friend & classmate Zay Rhymes, the pursuit began.
In High School, KONY became more active in his craft and embraced the culture of Hip Hop as a whole, joining a program that directly associated him with three other rappers that became "Tha Works Records." As the story of so many artists goes, over the next few years the group flip flopped from name to name, finally settling on "The Almighty Renegades." However great the time was, the group effort was short lived and KONY knew that in order for him to reach his goals, going at it solo was a must.
With the support of his Manager, Walter L. Morris aka Hustle Mo, CEO of EmpireStateofGrind Entertainment as well as family and friends, KONY has gone on to release 2 Solo mixtapes, release countless visuals and a debut album, Divine Right (March 2012) and sophomore effort Kony Island (March 2013)
The King Of NY has appeared and been featured on various Internet Radio outlets with the Steph Lova on DTF Radio, Dj Dynasty (Niteline), Ivy SoMajor (So Major Radio), Dj ShownTell (Sunday Night Cook Up), MeloDream/IMG Radio, CoCo (Just Gimmie The Mic), AllCityRadio, Teknologist Radio, Underground Express (Connecticut), QSJ Radio, Xtreme 104FM and Eddie Kayne (420 Radio) and many more. Learning from his biggest influences who he names as Zay Rhymes, the late Biggie Smalls, Eminem, and Lloyd Banks, Eats, Sleeps, and Breathes Music.
