According to Webster’s dictionary, the word deploy means to spread out for a deliberate purpose. In the world of urban music, the purpose is to collectively advance and overcome unwarranted obstacles says the New Orleans Union Of Entertainment All Stars.  In memory of the tragic invasion that occured on September 11th in 2001, another great body of work has been created.  “The Deployment” features Jay Da Menace’s “A Soldier’s Story” which is a tribute to America’s troops.  Timely and appropriate, New Orleans Union Of Entertainment All Stars assemble some of its seasoned artists such as Ghetto Twiinz, Fiend, UNLV, Devious, Mista Meana, Cheeky Blakk, Ms. Tee, the late Tim Smooth, Sporty T., and Soulja Slim.  Be sure to add this memorable anthology to your personal collection as the Crescent City’s finest batch of talent delivers poetic creativity while recalling the incidents of September 11 and Hurricane Katrina.  As “The Shutdown” by Da U Boys approaches its release on September 20th, they are also featured along with a cast of young guns like The Show, Majesty Sozey, Young Torrento, and AMG. “The Deployment is a special project centered around our soldiers in music and it pays homage to our common American soldier and citizens who have been affected by unforeseen events in our lifetime.”

Katrinaville/Island Def Jam recording artists Ghetto Twiinz return with a follow up smash single and video, “Same Lie” that educates the female population on the possibility of being duped.  Two females hearing the same exact expressions from one man is not unlikely in today’s highly single minded society.  With “Rock Rock” being a club favorite, “Same Lie” grants supporters the “game” that we love to hear from the GTZ.  Not only will this song and video appeal to females, males will be enlightened to either step their game up or come to a realization that being a “player” has repercussions. Press play and enjoy the new heat from New Orleans own Ghetto Twiinz.

NOUE's Sophomore Mixtape, aptly entitled "The Allies"

Founded less than one month ago, the New Orleans Union for Entertainment, or N.O.U.E., has become a force to be reckoned with – backed by some of the biggest names in New Orleans Music, the N.O.U.E. has already dropped one mixtape and is poised to drop another later this month. Devious, one of the legends of New Orleans‘ own Bounce Music Movement, Partners-N-Crime, the Legendary DJ Erv, and many others associated with the entertainment industry have pulled together and unified for a common cause – the promotion of New Orleans music on an international level.

It’s an idea that is now in its prime, as demonstrated by the large number of downloads of the 2011 Essence Festival Mixtape starring the NOUE All-Stars. If you haven’t already checked out the mixtape, it’s a must hear.

Popular hip hop sites from ThisIs50.com to The Heat Magazine have given the NOUE mixtape a high ranking – so much in fact, that they are poised to release another highly anticipated banger later this month. Stay tuned for more from the NOUE.
