@Marvel Releases New Captain America: Civil War Trailer on @LateNightJimmy

It's no surprise that Marvel Studios is on a roll after releasing the sequel to their Avengers franchise, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, a third season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D & Jessica Jones. Shortly after Marvel releasing Jessica Jones on Netflix this November they chose Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to debut their new trailer to the third Captain America movie loosely based off their hit comic book crossover Civil War.


Remember when YouTube used to play in the background of your smartphone? Well, it's back...KINDA SORT OF...@YouTube released YOUTUBE MUSIC APP!

Remember when you could open up a song or video on your smartphone within YouTube's native app, well Google finally decided to bring that feature back sort of...YouTube is still a standalone app but also there is a service you can pay a $13.99 per month which is YouTube Red which allows you to play your favorite songs in the background and cache YouTube songs to create an offline mixtape. To also compliment their YouTube Red subscription Google has released a separate app YouTube Music where you can watch videos or if you prefer to just listen to music switch it an music mode which you won't see video and can choose from different YouTube Music radio stations which YouTube compiles from based off your video and song watching habits.

Upon first downloading the YouTube Music app, you get a two week trial of YouTube Red which will also extend if you are using the traditional YouTube app, YouTube on your computer and YouTube Music. I'm not sure why YouTube would choose their subscription fee 0f $13.99 (Tidal had to learn being steep on prices was not the best plan of sell the hard way) especially when you can pay cheaper per month to stream music a la Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora. After you run out the two week trial, there seems very little incentive for anyone to continue to have YouTube Music app. Freemium features seems nonexistent. Once you are using YouTube music app free you won't be able to play music in the background without the app currently up on your smartphone or tablet.

YouTube Music is a cool app and a game changer but sadly I feel like their subscription fee they want you to pay is too much to stream music. I'll use it every now and then but feel like deferring to Apple Music, Soundcloud, Spotify, and Pandora as the way to go to stream music. My advice to YouTube is give the users who would like to use YouTube Music on a freemium basis something to incentives to keep the app on their devices.

Catch @UltraNateMusic & @LisaMoody this Thanksgiving weekend bring that @DEEPSUGAR in D.C.!

Just two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending my first House party with my brov Cool V (follow him on Instagram @mrofficialwhistle) in Baltimore at an historical last night at Paradox Entertainment's & Ultra Nates' Deep Sugar event. The vibe of going to an House club is much different than that of a Hip-Hop, Rap, or a reggae club. You should definitely be prepared to dance and sweat your ass off. You don't want to be suited and booted for this party. This is more of an t-shirt and jeans thing. Everyone who attends an House party is there for two things: THE MUSIC AND TO DANCE! It's about having fun. Sure there is a bar and you can have drinks but the music keeps you going and if anything you need water and a sweat towel because you are going to go in. There you can party from 11pm all the way to 7 am. I did not sleep much and definitely did spend some money but IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT!

The club is set up in an old warehouse. There were four different rooms with different DJ's rotating out through out the night and then in the main room was Ultra Nate' spinning. People eventually poured in as soon as the doors opened. It was very cold that weekend but with dancing so much and people packing the warehouse club to capacity you wouldn't think about the cold from the outside.

For more about who Ultra Nate' is just in case you are not familiar with classic Deep House and pop music, Ultra Naté (born March 20, 1968, Havre de Grace, Maryland) is an American House and Dance-Pop musician who has achieved success on the Pop charts with songs such as "Free" and "If You Could Read My Mind", as part of Stars on 54 and Automatic.

Virtually all of her singles have reached the Top 10 of the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart. Such singles include "Show Me", "Free", "Desire", "Get it Up (the Feeling)", "Love's the Only Drug", and her number-one hits "Automatic", "Give it All You Got" featuring Chris Willis, "Waiting On You" and "Everybody Loves the Night".

As you can see at Paradox, it was packed and people were dancing all the way into 7 in the morning! If you are in the DMV area this Thanksgiving weekend I implore you to go check out Ultra Nate' and Lisa Moody's Deep Sugar event this Saturday at the U Street Music Hall.

The Untold Story Of @LeahHaxhi


Leah Haxhi is an NYC singer/songwriter who blends powerful blues-like vocals and ad-libs over pop, hip hop and electronic- infused beats. Leah has had success with a variety of remixes and covers on Soundcloud and YouTube in the past, and is recently released her first original single Fade.

A music major with a degree from Trinity College, Leah is trained in violin and writes songs on guitar, piano and ukulele. Her style is a blend of pop, hip-hop, and R&B with rock and folk influences sprinkled in as well. She writes most of her songs organically, free-styling melodies and lyrics while playing the guitar or keys. Over the past 2 years she has lived in New York, she has been developing her style and bringing her songs in for original production at Shifted Recording Studios in Williamsburg by producer Mike Irish.

Leah’s rendition of John Legend’s “All of Me”, was featured on’s 25 best covers. In addition, she has performed at venues in New York such as Webster Hall (opening for Three 6 Mafia), The Bitter End, DL Night Club, and popular dive bars like LES’s The Delancey and Trash Bar in Brooklyn with a variety of sets including both DJ, live band and acoustic music.”

Leah Haxhi drops her first single “Fade,” with music produced in Brooklyn by Mike Irish. The track mixes minimalistic piano with jam-sesh vibes to create a natural, catchy feel that blends pop, R&B, hip-hop, and even subtle jazz elements into a chilled groove, ready for the hot city summer. With a June 21st release date, “Fade" is the perfect summer anthem, setting the tone for “driving down the highway” and blasting music while “everybody sings along.” The single is paired with high quality visuals from the hands of Matt Phipps, filmmaker and creator of Leah says “I wrote this song last year on my birthday. I was in the studio free-styling and picturing myself flying down the highway with my boyfriend at the time just listening to music on the way to the beach, fading away into that moment of complete contentment and happiness. This song is an expression of that feeling, no matter what you're doing in life." Be on the lookout for more tunes from Leah Haxhi, as she continues the countdown to her debut album release later this year.

Find out who's Jammin? It's the lady @elle_royal & find out some more about her music!

Elle Royal, formerly known as Patwa, was born in the Bronx, New York to parents of Caribbean descent. At age four, her parents divorced, leaving her to be raised by her mother in the Wakefield area of the Bronx. In search of a better place to raise her children, Elle’s mother re-located Elle to Lawrenceville, Georgia where Elle completed high school and later college at Georgia State University.

Elle always had a love for music and a love for writing. As a young girl, she recorded herself over tape decks and mimicked the rhymes of rappers Mase, Biggie, and Foxy Brown. As she grew older, she studied the rhymes of Jay-Z, Mobb Deep, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah and AZ. While in high school, Elle spent many nights engaged in the process of making music at a cousin’s studio nearby. While watching her cousin and his friends record, Elle fell in love with the idea of expressing herself using wordplay and finesse. Elle slowly began to conceptualize herself as more than just a lover of music.

Elle brought music equipment on a credit card and built a studio setup in her room where she recorded songs simultaneously posting them on MySpace. It was on MySpace that her current manager discovered Elle, and began working with her on her first mixtape.

While working on her debut mixtape, Elle felt fortunate to be recognized by Hip Hop legends such as Erick Sermon. Erick was featured on her debut mixtape while Elle received production from the legendary, Mad Lion.

Although Elle’s popularity began to soar exponentially, Elle displayed unhappiness in an industry that she felt was boxing her into a niche. Feeling hindered, Elle took an absence from music in an effort to revamp her music by re-imagining her sound and name in a way that she felt would be more reflective of her versatility and talents.

After mastering her sound, Elle returned to the hip-hop scene, but only under her terms. Elle changed her emcee name to Elle Royal (meaning “She's Royal” in French) to reflect her first name, Danielle, and her eagerness to bring respect back to the female. As Elle explains, “We as women are Royal, and I needed a name to reflect that”. Elle then aimed to create a sophisticated sound and image that she believed would challenge her listeners. “I just want people to want the better things out of life and to not think that the only options you have as a woman is to use your sexuality in a demeaning way to get ahead”. “I want women to aspire to obtain things on their own, and value their independence rather than depend on anyone to do things for them.”
