Outed(S4) OOP46: Medino Green - "Clap"
Is it inspiration, or is it imitation that’s created your newest favorite song? The growth of TikTok began in 2017, and became the latest juggernaut used by the music industry to determine what is a hit, or even create them. Artists are having to choose between being original or being viral, and it’s impacting how they create and how we listen. We’re going to talk about Black music in the Tiktok era. Joining us for this show is Queens-bred MC, Medino Green, as we continue to celebrate #Pride2022. Green’s new single “CLAP” is out now! Medino Green Bio: Medino Green, the hip-hop artist from Queens, NY, hit the scene back in 2009. Small in stature but big in his lyrical ability, he is one of a kind, standing at a mere 5’6”. A true product of the 90’s, with his flashy braggadocio, in your face style, Green is inspired by artists such as The Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J, Fabolous, Lil’ Kim, and NAS. He’s remained true to the classic sounds of the era that has inspired him. With his latest mixtape, "inMyBag," Green reminds us why he is unique. The mixtape includes 10 freestyle tracks over familiar beats, including tracks like “Medino Say’s” to “GRN Bomb,” his New York cadence reminds us of where he’s from no matter where he’s at. In addition to the Mixtape, Green also put together a few videos inspired by Rap City’s Big Tigger in the Basement, also another classic moment for hip-hop culture while supporting his fellow queer artist peers by hanging their photos on the wall beside him.

Ronald Canady, has been influenced by the foundation of contemporary R&B, but infused with Gospel and Pop. From the tender age of 7 years old, as anonly child, he watched his grandmother sing in the choir and listened to his mother casually cover Anita Baker songs. The heart and soul of the choir and the raw emotion his mother shared singing songs such as, “365 days” ignited his passion for music as an art form and allowed for the recognition of his own talent. Music blossomed within him as he grew to perform with an award winning group, “the Jazz Singers”, and instilled the dream in him for a solo career. For the past ten years, Canade – his artist name - has performed at open mics, showcases, and talent revues both locally in the greater Atlanta area and NYC.
Cultivating his own sound by challenging the norm, Canadecovers deep cuts and obscure nostalgic gems in his sets that most artists would never even think of. With his complex lyrical content and compelling arrangements, he’s getting back to what R&B/Soul music is at its core, honest and raw. Canade’s brand is a complete package of complexity and sincerity. His sound, a compilation of a wide range of influences, is different than today’s music - not manufactured or copied.
Canade is a representation of authenticity and his story of redemption is heartfelt. He uses his platform to uplift others and it vividly paints his relationship with GOD. Compassion, empathy, transparency, and true forgiveness are only a few topics touched by this alien in his music.
Rising from the ashes like a phoenix, he’s resilience is captivating and inspiring. He’s ready to walk in his light and nothing will stand in his way. With persistence, passion, and purpose, he is ready to give the world something to imitate.... but never duplicate.

Outed(S3) OOP36: Ali Steele - "I Can Only Be Me"
Ali Steele, singer / songwriter business owner of Ethnic by Ali, and 1/3 of Issa vibe adventures was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. He was subject to bullying for the color of his skin at a very young age. This caused him to write.
Mr. Steele became a songwriter at a fairly young age of 14. At that age, he knew he had a gift. He eventually produced a published record. While still working on music in his spare time, he also yearned for more.
He grew up in an adverse environment where self-love and pride were not taught. He wasn’t exposed to nature and never missed it. As he got older, he became exposed to different artists and public figures such as Erykah Badu and Dr. Llaila Afrika who helped show himself love and acceptance. He became engulfed in learning African roots and traditions, as well as developing a strong pride for the color of his skin.
This newfound love of himself motivated him to start a business called Ethnic by Ali. He chose that title as a celebration of ethnicity, and Ali is his middle name. He also felt as if the name, Ali, meant a lot to his family since it is a shared middle name amongst some of the males in his family.
“Ali” means the highest one.

It is finally time to own diversity in sexuality as part of the identity of black artists. That is what Williamz is striving to achieve with his art. He has embraced his sexuality and turned it into the focal point of his rap music. His lyrics, choreography, and the tone of his music videos all gallantly feature gayness as a critical element.
Originally from the South of Chicago, Williamz is aspiring to go global. The 2020s will surely see this passionate musician blossom and bloom into a worldwide sensation. It is exciting to see Williamz fearlessly embark on this new journey. This is just the beginning of a new chapter.

Outed OOP2: Manny K. Soul - "Blazing Love"
Singer/songwriter Manny K. Soul hails from the suburbs of Atlanta, GA. He got an early start in music having grown up in the church where he studied the sounds of gospel music-a genre that would directly influence his powerful vocal stylings. Manny’s love for R&B/Soul music however led him to begin writing songs about the up’s & down’s of love. Drawing from his own personal experiences, Manny writes songs which can be described as a slick fusion of Soul, Funk, & the Blues. With the release of his self-penned debut single “Blazing Love”, Manny croons over the Kori James-produced beat “shooting past the stars/something phenomenal/we’ve got blazing love.” He gradually builds upon the infectious groove with layers of luscious harmonies and melodic melismas until the climatic ending where his falsetto soars and sends listeners into galactic eargasms! His forthcoming EP, due later this year, will certainly place Manny K. Soul on track to position himself amongst the greats with his heartfelt lyrics and soulful vocal performances, thus creating classic tunes that will impact the world for many, many years to come. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
