If you didn't know tomorrow kicks off the third annual BET Awards and anyone who lives here already knows that the parties and events are going yo be going to be pretty crazy. But if I were you I wouldn't throw my money away on just anybody's party. Check out some places that I can guarantee will ensure that you have a good time.
The incredible artist known as Fundisha (Foon-desha) is a soul singer from Newark, New Jersey, who now calls Atlanta home. She took the opportunity to talk to the â€œMouth of The Southâ€ in a very candid conversation about her struggles in securing a firm position, in the often timeâ€™s unstable industry that we all know to be the music business.
The former So So Def recording artist whoâ€™s worked with such top tier acts like Bow Wow, Mary J. Blige and Tyrese, is attempting to capture her own solo success with a new mix tape (â€œThe Struggleâ€), a new outlook on life, and most importantly a strong understanding of the music business.

Now yâ€™all know I donâ€™t like to start rumors. But, I saw 112 lead singer Slim (Marvin Scandrick) out and about last night at Atlantaâ€™s Power 30 Under 30, an event that praises the top 30 business professionals under the age of 30. And homeboyâ€™s not looking so slim anymore.
In fact heâ€™s looking very puffyâ€"but minus the Sean Combs.
With Hip-Hop looming in such a questionable state, I thought it would be best to start with the DJâ€™s of the world to get everyone a clearer insight on what the hell is going on. And hopefully start taking steps to rectify the destruction of a culture I hold near and dear to my heart.
Last week it was DJ Tayrock & this week its the ultra charismatic DJ Shakim.
In this edition of â€œReal Talk With SoHH Gyantâ€ the NYC bred DJ sheds some light on Hip-Hop, Bow Wow, Omarion, his wife and former recording artist of So So Def records, Fundisha and whole lot more.

Whatâ€™s da deal Family?
I see the comments are picking up and for that very reason, today, Iâ€™m going to pass on Atlantaâ€™s Own Talent Showcase to address some of your comments. This picture was emailed to me earlier today. Can we all please get a grip people! They got arrested for a white-collar crime. There will be a trial, which Iâ€™m sure will take at least a year. Some of y'all acting like they was sentenced to death and shit. Itâ€™s corny as hell but: if you cant do the time, then donâ€™t do the muthafuckin crime.
My homie Freezefiyah emailed me this information on just how serious the RIAA is about all the bootlegging. The have had enough.
If you thought DJ Drama and the Aphillates Music Group were the only ones to feel the effect of the powers that be's desperate attempt to put to bed the commercial viability of urban music entertainment, well guess again. Your favorite website, Urban Connects recently received a â€œcease and desistâ€ notice (same day as the Aphillates raid mind you) from the legal department of VNU, parent company of Nielsen BroadCast Data Systems and Nielsen SoundScan. The issue at hand is the BDS and SoundScan numbers that are posted on this site. Because of this action we will, starting today, omit the BDS/SoundScan numbers from being posted in â€œchart formatâ€â€¦but best believe we will continue to be your source for analysis of this urban music landscape (on a business level) from the perspective of people that are of the culture.
When you see a billion dollar media entity threatening to enforce statutory damages (up to $150,000 per infringement) on a site that is completely non-revenue in nature it just goes to show how powerful a role INFLUENCE can play in the world we live in. Now is the time to strap the boots up and ride out! You canâ€™t stop progression.
First, let me say that I really appreciate the time and energy (good or bad) yâ€™all share with Sohh Atlanta. Iâ€™m doing my best to make this shit as interesting as possible. So, keep doing ya thing and I will for damn sure keep doing mine.
