Rising Pop Artist Farrah Mechael Dropping Summertime EP ‘Lies’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The second EP release, "Lies," from buzzing pop newcomer Farrah Mechael, is dropping on all major digital retailers and streaming services June 19 - just in time for the summer.

Featuring production and writing from Andre "Dre Bombay" Harris, Don Parma, Devrim Karaoglu, Ant Clemons and the Mechael sisters - Farrah and Tamara - the EP delivers a fresh fusion of pop with hip-hop and dance sensibilities. "Lies" offers a remaster of Farrah's previously released pop and hip-hop single "That Way" featuring Mackned along with 5 new tracks including "Carefully" - a sensual summer pop track highlighted by a bassy dance beat.

Farrah Mechael has been gaining attention with her performances at iHeart Radio's Wango Tango in Los Angeles in 2018 and Detroit Summer Jamz in 2019 and with her dedication to community building and mental health activism on her growing online platform.

She is ready to change the world with her message and music commonly stating, "I truly do believe the world needs change. And if we don't change it, who will?"

Being a classically trained opera singer, as well as having performed Jazz and Gospel sets at many prestigious events such as Obama's Inauguration Ceremony in Detroit, Farrah uses her unique voice and background to blend many different genres and styles into her own music. She incorporates both her roots - being a Chaldean woman growing up in metro Detroit - and her current experience working out of Los Angeles into her newest release.

"Lies" includes a Detroit rap-inspired track "Ice Pack," the title track "Lies" - which serves a Middle Eastern vibe, and "What Do You Want," "I'm In Love," and "Carefully" all of which call back to the pop roots of her debut release "Farrah Please" while moving forward with west coast dance influences.

"Lies" is currently available for preorder on digital retailers and will be available for digital purchase and streaming on June 19, 2020.

Farrah can be found on Instagram at or her website which contains contact and newsletter subscription forms.

Her music can be heard on Spotify as well as Apple Music, Tidal, YouTube and Soundcloud.

Rapping Math Professor Chad Rico Sets Summer School Lessons with 12 Weekly Hip Hop Releases

RICHMOND, Calif. -- It may be summer break but for college math professor and hip hop artist Chad Rico school is back in session! Chad plans to drop lesson plans all season long with his "12 Weeks of Summer" EP project on Gold & Gems Records by releasing a new single every week.

With intentions to keep his international classroom of music fans interested and engaged during the upcoming heatwave, "Legend in the Coupe," the debut track, hits on June 14 and is a banger for the books! Follow up song assignments for the first four weeks include "Pure Highbury" on June 21, "Charge It to the Game" on June 28 and "Don't Trust You" on July 15.

As an entrepreneur, financial analyst, clothing manufacturer/designer, filmmaker and world traveler, Chad Rico has proven himself to be a master mathematician who can calculate winning formulas in any arena. He dropped his first EP "Myth" last year with the single release and wildly popular video, "New Level." Both titles lent clues to his intentions and added up to major successes.

"Legend in the Coupe" features Gold & Gems Records labelmate, Kam Krzy, and boasts genuine Bay Area flavor as the two artists set the vibe for big summertime stuntin'. Kam is currently working on his own debut EP titled "Kam's Krzy Modern Life," including the anxiously anticipated "Workin'" and "Northface in September" videos.

"I am fully aware that there are haters who thought that as an academian, I would not be fully committed or able to demonstrate consistency as a music artist. They anticipated that my 'Myth' project was a flash in the pan. June is my birthday month and for 32 years now, I have been proving that I am an individual who sets no limits with my endeavors. '12 Weeks of Summer' will cement my stamp in the music game with what I like to call teachable moments by dropping a different single every week!" notes Chad.

A Belizean American, Chad's legend began at birth when he was born in Los Angeles, in the same hospital and at the same time as Grammy Award winning artist Kendrick Lamar. Currently repping for the Bay Area, Chad's family relocated to Northern California where he now resides. The esteemed University of California Berkeley alumni attended the University on an academic scholarship at the age of 16! With a B.A. in African American Studies and Applied Math, and a master's in mathematics from San Francisco State University, Chad also spent eight months in London in a Regents College Graduate Business Program.

The intentional student turned professor has taught math at Contra Costa College, City College San Francisco, Berkeley City College and College of Alameda. The 32-year old has traveled to over 35 countries. In addition to his music company Gold & Gems, he owns and has operated his Gold & Gems clothing business for the past six years.

Chad Rico will debut "Legend in the Coupe" on "The Friday Night Shock-Wave," hosted by Dee Dowdy on WCCG The Hip Hop Station 104.5 FM ( ) in Fayetteville, NC, Friday June 14 at 9:00 pm ET.

Former Cash Money Records Artist Tab ‘Hot Boy Turk’ Virgil Jr. Offers Inspiring, Real Life Story of Redemption In His Tell-All Memoir

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- The Oracle Group announces Former Cash Money Records artist Tab "Hot Boy Turk" Virgil Jr. takes you on a journey of deep spiritual and mental growth as he reveals how he dealt with the struggles of growing up in the infamous New Orleans' Uptown Magnolia Projects, his heroin and cocaine addiction, his incarceration, and how he survived the challenges thrown his way with pure grit, tenacity, and the unconditional love from his family in his new book, "The AutoThugOgraphy of Turk" (Hardcover: Wahida Clark Publishing: ISBN: 978-1947732216).

Cash Money founders Ronald "Slim" Williams and Brian "Baby" Williams discovered Turk while he was rapping in Magnolia Projects in 1996. Soon after, Turk was recruited as one of the original members of the now-defunct late 90's group "Hot Boys" crew alongside Juvenile, B.G. and Lil Wayne. Being the biggest draw on Cash Money Records back then, the Hot Boys gained international success and went on to create timeless music as a group, as well as individually.

His first ever solo debut "Young and Thuggin'" was released under Universal Records in June 2001. His second solo album "Raw and Uncut" under Koch hit the streets in 2003, before he was charged with second-degree attempted murder after a drug raid shootout in Memphis, Tennessee.
The then up and coming rapper's life took a turn after police claimed that he shot an officer during the drug raid, but Turk holds firm that he hid in the closet unarmed.

His third album Penitentiary Chances came out in 2004 while awaiting trial in prison. Turk's sentence finally ended after 8 years, 8 months and 16 days on October 12, 2012.

Virtually unstoppable since his release, Turk's first project after life in prison, "Blame It On The System" reminded everyone that he is a force to be reckoned with. He has since been consistently doing interviews and appearing on different shows and media outfits, making new music, and has even started his very own label, YNT Empire.

Picking up where he left off before prison, Turk is ready to take the world by storm, and hopes to inspire others who are in the brink of giving up: "It's a tell-all book. I'm letting the world know my story," says Turk, "I'm ready for all of you to know the real me."

According to Turk, this is so people could see beyond the former Hot Boy from Cash Money and get to know the real Turk who triumphed over the challenges he faced in his career, as his well personal life -- from his post-incarceration trauma, his loyal wife Emani's struggle to keep it together after kids and surviving cancer, and much more.

About the Author:

Tab "Hot Boy Turk" Virgil Jr. Born and raised in New Orleans Uptown Magnolia Projects, Turk was initially an aspiring football player before developing his passion and ability for rapping. He joined the ranks of Cash Money label-mates Juvenile, B.G., and Lil Wayne back in 1996 as one of the original Hot Boys crew members. In 2003, he was charged with second-degree attempted murder after a drug raid shootout in Memphis, Tennessee and was incarcerated for 8 years, 8 months and 12 days. He founded the music label YNT Empire.
