Featured Artist Of The Month

Featured Artist of The Month: @RyanLucasDC

Wednesday, May 04, 2016Ava Bella

When the interwebs and Hip Hop God's got together just a little over 2 years ago and I discovered the artists Ryan Lucas, he was working. By working I mean he was visible on the web, his music had substance, it was produced well, and he was actively performing - EVERYWHERE! Seriously y'all, he had the merch game on point working with Power In One Clothing; who's movement reached all the way to CNN (I am so excited I copped me a shirt from them too). He also had his signature beads, the Boombox Stone Bracelets, that I knew I of course needed to also add to my extensive accessory collection (I now have 2 colors!)...it's just one of those pieces you have to have, feel me?! I digress.

There was little time and space and soon my homies at Black Vine Enterprises, LLC reached out to Ryan and he was performing at our annual showcase during SXSW in Austin, Texas. Well, that was last year. Since Ryan's gig with us it seemed like he was non-stop! 

**Just to clarify, this is exactly what we encourage artists to do...! 

He made the move from the DC area, relocating to Los Angeles just a few short months ago, but still tours and can be seen lighting up your instagram feed from just about everywhere.

I must say that Ryan is the perfect example of what can happen when an artist applies a little bit of focus, work ethic, and straight hustle to their art!

Ryan joined us this year at the Black Vine Showcase during SXSW 2016 at Shang-Ri-La, but this time as Headliner, and wowed the crowd, made new fans, and even signed a few autographs for folks I am sure will follow his musical journey all the way to Grammy's and beyond (I mean the music is that good folks)!

I have had an opportunity to listen to Ryan's 'I Want Her Back' in audio form only, LIVE and in person in my hometown of Kansas City at the Mutual Musicians Foundation International's #MondayNightJam a few weeks ago when he was our feature, and also LIVE during SXSW at the Black Vine Showcase. Folks, this project is easily at classic status. The mix is on point, as is the production; which I have come to expect from Ryan and he didn't disappoint! If you don't believe me, go to RyanLucasDC.com to download it and listen for yourself!

Watch my one-on-one interview with +Ryan Lucas 
during the Black Vine Showcase during SXSW 2016.

Take a look at Ryan's most recent video release, one of my new personal favorites 'Bo Jackson'. Every line and lyric coming from Ryan should inspire your to get up, get out, and do something! @KoraTheArtist's hook is gonna do just that! Guarantee you can't just watch this extremely well-shot cinematic visual just once and I also bet you'll be humming it all day long!
It's infectious!
