MUSIC MONDAY: LUNCHMONEY LEWIS “BILLS” (VIDEO)

I was browsing on IG a few days ago when I saw a post that DJ Khaled put up… It was a snippet of LunchMoney Lewis‘ video “Bills”. I immediately felt a sense of pride, most of the comments were pretty positive and most people seemed to like the song. My pride comes from the fact that I have known LunchMoney since he was in the group Bottom Of the Map. I’ve interviewed him a few times (check ChunkyChickz Youtube channel for clips) and I’ve had the pleasure of watching him grow in an industry that wouldn’t typically feature this kind of artist.

Seeing that I have been out of the loop for sometime now. I was also pleasantly surprised when I found out that Lunch also co wrote and performed the vocals for a track on Nicki Minaj’s album The Pink Print. “Trini Dem Girls” is actually one of my favorite songs on the album. Don’t ask me how or why I didn’t realize that it was Lunch accompanying her on the track…  LOL This is an artist who has been grinding in Miami for a while now, and it looks like his time is now. These days Lunch can be found living it up in Los Angeles writing and building up his songwriting credits making moves just like he did when he was here in Miami. Gotta say again that I’m proud of him, but I’m not surprised at his success seeing that he is the son of  Inner Circle’s bassist and Co Founder of Circle House Studios here in Miami Ian Lewis.

Check out his newest single “Bills’ below…

INTRODUCING! Don Son

“The first thing people say when you start doing well and you’re confident in whatever it is that you set out to do is that you’re ‘Hollywood’ nah, ‘I Ain’t Hollywood, I’m Southbeach’. Living up to the extraordinary expectations of being the offspring of one of the roughest “rude bwoys” to ever set foot off the island of Jamaica would make some apprehensive; instead emerging rapper Don Son is well on his way to making a name all his own.

“I’m actually the Don’s son. My pops is real big in Jamaica. You can ask any Jamaican and they know about Skeng Don,” explains Don Son.  Son of Jamaican business mogul Skeng Don a man with a reputation so legendary it rings across the Caribbean and South Florida, so well known that even the biggest Bawse, Miami rapper Rick Ross recently mentioned him in a Tweet.

I was always taught “go out and get it” which is exactly what the South Florida rapper plans to do with the release of his upcoming mixtape titled “Spending Habits” the first single “South Beach” .

An Open Letter From Empress: Don’t Ask My Neighbor…

 

Don’t ask my neighbor….

Here’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth… I needed a break!!! With all of the additions, subtractions, gossip, twit beef, she said, she lied, she using your name to get venues… Wolves in sheep’s clothing, my immaturity, my ability to see the good in all people and soo much more… I had to take some time away for myself, my family and my mental well being.

The Chunky Chickz Story from the beginning…

The whole reason I started Chunky Chickz was because I wanted to dance again. Having studied various forms of dance since the age of 4 and being afforded the opportunity to travel because of my talent…. I wanted to continue doing the thing that I loved most. So I contacted my best friend who at the time was Co-Captain of the Miami Heat Dancers and we did a casting call for plus size dancers. Needless to say I was disappointed at the outcome and I made the decision to go it alone and I began to promote events with Jay from Dime Breed Ent./Zoe Pound. After a while I noticed that Miami didn’t have any all female promotional groups, so I conducted a casting call looking for confident, attractive plus size women with little to no experience who were looking to make an impact in Miami with my movement. It may have been naive of me to think that people wouldn’t link with me without having their own motives. I mean we all have personal goals. What I didn’t know or understand at that time was the length people would go to, to sully your name and gain your trust only to turn around and slander you to get ahead. Long story short, DJ Affect saw one of the CC fliers on the beach he called us, we went in for a meeting and Chunky Chickz Radio was born, first we were on w305.com, then 89.1fm, then Street Connect Radio. As most of you may know during that time we experienced a lot of changes and now I am the last Chunky Chick standing. Many former members have broken off and started their own thing and I wish them the best. I believe everything happens for a reason and I am grateful for all of the lessons I learned from this whole experience. But, life goes on!

 

With that said it’s still all about the Chunky Chickz Movement stay tuned and you’ll see just what I mean…

 

This letter is not about placing blame… I’m sure you’ve heard several versions of the story, but you’ve never heard mine, & you never will… Not my style!

 

Its a new day… I took a much needed break and I’m back armed with some new chit!

 

First and foremost Chunky Chickz Radio is coming back to a station near you, official announcement and launch COMING SOON!

 

Miami Renaissance is on the way as well (whole new concept)…

 

ChunkyChickzWorld.com is still popping so stop by and take a look see at what I’ve done with the place.

 

Oh and we will be hosting a casting call in Atlanta for what will be called the A-Team in the next few weeks. S/O to my girl Britt Bratt!!!

 

& I’ve been working on the new concept for CC and I promise not to disappoint! Just taking it back to the basics for me… Doing everything that I love, and staying far away from the negative energy.

 

Lastly, I have to thank my right hand man for sticking in there with me @haztv love you boo! As well as the select few that have reached out to me to check on me, and yell at me when they noticed that I fell back! I can’t forget my two boos @DJLuckyC & Bree-Not @iAMSABRINA who always have my back… & I can’t forget to mention an old friend who has really been the catalyst behind my new focus & outlook on things… Preciate you Mayne!!!

& S/O to my Street Connect DJ fam & 365Voice.com !!!

 

I said all of that to say, I’m back bishes!!! So hit me up… ((for interviews, website features, promotions, hosting gigs, & performance opportunities)) I’m ready to work! It takes a village so you know what that means,  if I can help let me know.

At the end of the day, they can take everything away from you. But one thing they can never take away from you is your mind, that gift that God gave you called Talent & your creativity. If you did it once you can do it again, and again & AGAIN!” – My Mother 😀
