It is hard to find raw talented singers such as Leshane Siuts who don’t use auto-tone to make their voices sound electronic like the artist t-pain. Leshane sounds real and original. In the track “Diamonds” he does a good job remaking the Rihanna track while being accompanied by a piano. He can be in the same league as Chris Brown and Bruno Mars.


He has a silky soulful voice with a wonderful falsetto. He is a natural tenor with a handsome face and sexy body which the ladies will most definitely come to love while he entertains. Keep up the good work Leshane and please continue to stay as original with the silky voice as possible.  The sky is the limit for this artist if he continues to work harder and train harder.

Young Crhyme aka Money Mendoza released his long awaited music video to the track “Glass of Hennessy”. This video was elegantly filmed by Benny John (Backyard Pictures).

 The music video is more of a short film which portrays more of the drink “Hennessy” as a grown man’s drink. A top shelf drink for the man who struggles for the best in life.


The intro music is reminiscent of the 60’s track by Sam Cooke “A Change Gonna Come”. It does take you back to that era of trials and tribulations by African Americans. A time when there was demand for change in equality. You see that in the film as Young Crhyme aka Money Mendoza sits in his hotel room sipping on some Hennessey and watching Martin Luther King on TV. It portrays a time when Black Men were looking for their top shelf Cognac such as the drink “Hennessy”.


Meanwhile, the main track is a sample from “Ashanti’s Rain on Me” beat uniquely put together while Young Crhyme flows to it. You also get a lil bit of ice cube’s “Today was a good Day” beautifully intertwined into the track.

The story line to the film is intriguing just like a Bonny and Clyde story but in a more modern time/set. Santa Marta plays the role of Bonny, a ride or die bitch who is ready to kill for her man. You will definitely love the short film and most especially the music.

Two thumbs up to Young Crhyme, all the actors and actresses, and last but not least, the director/film editor. Great Job!! Guys

Anis Mohamed Youssef Ferchichi, better known as Bushido, is a self-styled gangster rapper who knows the value of bad publicity. The scandals that have followed the 34-year-old are not even almost too many to list - they are too many to list.

It is as if he and the German media long ago made an agreement that between them they would see how many political-correctness red buttons they could hit. Anti-Semitism, homophobia, gangsterism, misogyny, glorification of violence - you name it, he's courted it - always with headline-grabbing effect. 

Responsible in his youth for such rap lines as "I'll make an attack like Tel Aviv, listen to my voice, I fuck your mother," he released an album in 2007 called Number 1 Enemy of the State. It's a role he seems to relish.

Yet two years ago he was awarded the Bambi media prize for integration - his father is from Tunisia, but he was born in Bonn and raised in Germany. 
This prompted protests from other artists, although the prize is awarded by a media group and means little more than a good show in the press the following day.

Early this year he tweeted a map of the Middle East without Israel marked on, provoking further fury from embarrassed politicians. 

It was partly in response to that reaction, that Bushido composed his latest sure-now-to-be hit track Stress Without Reason. It appears on an album by another rapper Shindy, called NWA Never Work Again (Nie Wieder Arbeiten).

bushido-goldThe censors said the lyrics were "brutalizing, inciting to violence and discriminatory against women and homosexuals." Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit and Free Democratic Party MP Serkan Tören have filed charges after being verbally attacked in the song. 

Now the album bearing that song will be on the youth censorship index, meaning it will only be allowed to be sold to adults. The aim, said Berlin's city interior minister Frank Henkel, was to make it difficult for Bushido "to poison minds and make money from this CD," the Tagesspiegel newspaper said on Thursday. 

It may already be too late - the paper reported that in at least one major Berlin city centre music shop it was already sold out. And it is already high in the sales charts. 

It is the first release for Bushido's partner in the album, Shindy - who would never have received so much attention if it had not been for the help of his friend, theTagesspiegel suggested.
