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.”

New Orleans Union Of Entertainment announces the release of “Real Recognize Real” which is dedicated to Tim Smooth

     New Orleans Union Of Entertainment All Stars present their third various artists mixtape, Real Recognize Real, which features the late Tim Smooth, Ice Mike, Black Menace, Partners N Crime, Devious, Da U Boys, Cheeky Black, Mia X, Kunta Fly Snooka, Majesty Sozey, The Rap Pack, Ms. Tee, and more.  This 25 song mixtape maintains consistency as it follows the Essence Festival and Allies mixtape releases.  As the New Orleans Union For Entertainment continues to flourish, structure begins to form for New Orleans hip hop.
     “One of the main dilemmas New Orleans has faced over the years as it relates to hip hop is structure.  We have always had a ton of talent but only a small amount of industrial structure.  NOUE is addressing this concern because most hardworking artists echo this opinion,” stated Devious.  New Orleans Union For Entertainment is an action based collective that features artists in its blog, on its internet radio affiliate stations Robgradio.com, Hitzinternationalradio.com, Heat magazine, Dtv, Ramp Tv, Phat Phat n All That, and more.    Where there is a plethora of talent in cities like New Orleans and New York, the possibility of a lack of structure is bound to rear its ugly head.  However, New Orleans Union For Entertainment is equipped with professionals which offer their services at reasonable rates.  As a result, several artists have leaped over the obstacle of rejection and are now making progress in the advancement of their career regardless of their musical style.  The beauty of the NOUE can be likened to “a pot of gumbo,” because the collective supports all genres and levels of hip hop.  “Our mixtapes and radio stations play young, old, bounce, hip hop, gangster, alternative, and more.”
    
The mixtape series consolidates New Orleans rap and allows industry professionals to be able to observe a variety of relevant music all at once in contrast to finding New Orleanians in a scattered fashion.  Be sure to download NOUE All Stars mixtape series at HDmixtapes.com, Mixconnect.com,  Mixtapewire.com, etc.  According to Mista Meana of Partners N Crime, Legendary Dj Erv of Robgradio, and Devious, the mission is to advance the music and careers of New Orleans artists and businesses.  This advancement can also come in the form of networking opportunities, financial empowerment, and dissemination of information that can assist artists  in other areas of their personal lives.

Some Weekend Wisdom From PNC & ‘So Attracted’ – Partners N Crime (VIDEO)

Posted in Legendary Artists, New Orleans Music with tags , , , , , , , on July 29, 2011 by Arlene Culpepper

It has been said that if you truly love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. That work part may not be true, but if you’re loving what you’re doing, then it won’t feel like work .

One of the most memorable interviews I ever did was with one of the hardest working acts in the industry – PNC – check out an excerpt of what Mista Meana had to say regarding how they have remained a group for so long. He spoke with such fervor and energy, that the love of his craft was blatantly obvious. More importantly, it’s something pertinent that NOUE members can take away from this post. UNITY, LOYALTY, FAMILY, & A LOVE FOR MAKING MUSIC – that’s what it’s all about:

“THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What makes PNC different, as far as Mr. Meana and Kango Slim staying together for years? What is the glue that holds PNC together? You see some groups come and go, but PNC has always been around.

PNC: Loyalty, first of all. We brothers from a different mother, you know what I’m sayin? Friends may fall out or grow apart, but family always finds a way to stay together when it’s a loving family, so we have love for each other and we have respect for each other so we give each other our lanes to do what we do. That’s pretty much been us from the beginning. We have respect for what makes sense and it can come from either one of us at the end of the day, if it all makes sense, that’s what we choose to do as a whole. That’s been our gel for keeping us together. We don’t like the word fan because it’s a word short for fanatic and we don’t really look at people as fanatics. We don’t look at everybody that buy our records as fanatics. We look at them as supporters. We have a good supporting team that make our grind what it is. We try to keep giving people what they love and that’s what makes Partners-N-Crime what it is. That’s what kept us in the game for so long – to have love for what we do and to have respect for what we do. People who support what we do see that about us and push us to make another song. If we wanted to quit today or tomorrow or do another vibe, they’d make us go back to the studio to do it again. That’s pretty much what it’s been – a love and passion for what we do. And more than anything, we put God and family first in everything we do. We know that is so important.”

 

NOUE SIDENOTE: Don’t let the ground work laid by our N.O. legends be in vain. Exhibit loyalty, unity & the love of the business in all that you do and it will be returned to you in some way, shape or form. BALEEDAT *Big Ramp voice*.

This video (by Rome & Perez) is only several years old, but it’s already a classic, just like everything else PNC touches. Check out our legends, Mista Meana and Kango Slim, the duo who make up Partners N Crime.
