Macdon the Fifth is an American rapper from Hollis Queens New York. Macdon became familiar with his talent in the basement of a friend who had DJ equipment named Dollar Bill. He began playing around with the mic and some beats and penned a few rhymes. It turned out so well that he began to see a future in music. Another song eventually caught the ear of Jam Master Jay (R.I.P.) but the timing wasn’t right and the song was passed on. Around this time he connected with Zodiac Fishgrease who was an apprentice on Video Music Box with Ralph Mcdaniels. This is when he began to catch on and got his first taste of fame. This continued attention and his musical versatility eventually landed Macdon a deal with Warner Bros. Records. Unfortunately the deal went south.
Macdon then took a break from music to start a family but he couldn’t stay away from the industry for long and soon found himself in the studio with his producer friend Beyond. He made connections with 50 Cent and Uncle Murda and landed himself a second deal with Fubu Records. Fubu was a hot urban clothing brand making a move into the music industry with a compilation album featuring major and up and coming artists. Macdon was rewarded with a 150k signing bonus from the label. In spite of this he didn’t receive the “push” that many thought he would have.
Undeterred with another opportunity placed before him, Macdon has a single entitled “Entrepreneurs” that was chosen for placement on Global Concourse Vol. 1 presented by Global Sounds Records and distributed by eOne. This album is slated for release on January 20.2017.

NEWPORT NEWS, VA. – Robbie Russell has always loved music. It’s been a part of his life for as long as he can remember, and he’s been singing for most of his life.
Today, the rapper and singer from Newport News, VA is beginning to make waves on the east coast music scene with his relatable music and unique sound.
With a pop/R&B sound that features unique hooks, the 19-year-old’s music reflects on his life experiences and conveys his growth not only as a person, but also as an artist.
“All of my music I take from what I’ve been through or how I’m feeling in the moment,” Russell said. “I won’t write a song about girls or money or anything like that if it’s not true. My songs focus on past relationships or situations I’ve been in – what I’ve been through and how I’ve grown throughout time. That said, the songs aren’t overly specific. They’re written in a way that’s broader and can connect with almost anyone – emotions about feeling alone or how good I felt when I met a person. You can learn a lot about me from listening to my music, but it’s also open to interpretation from pretty much anyone who hears the songs.”
In May Russell drops a new single every week off of a new EP titles “Self(ish).” The full album will have eight songs and can be accessed through Russell’s Soundcloud account. Russell said the idea behind the songs on the EP is to display who he is as an artist.
“I was a little selfish by the way I put some information out there and how I wrote my music for this EP,” Russell said. “I went with what I thought was the best style that I thought for me, instead of going with what others told me I should do. Really, I just wanted to put me on this EP, and that’s what you get with these songs that I put on there.”
Russell said the EP is structured in a way that tells a story over the course of all eight songs. It starts off with a bit of a pop feel, with more singing than rap from Russell. The first songs talk about the need for a mate, with follow-up songs exploring the ins-and-outs of a relationship. “From there it transitions to a darker place with no love after losing the girl,” he said. “At that point of the EP I start to take a different approach. With the song ‘Throw It Away,’ you see a guy who’s over that relationship. But by the end of the EP, the songs are reflective of how far I’ve come as a person and as an artist. It’s all a progression of what I’ve been through over the past year-and-a-half.”
Russell has performed live at a number of shows on campus at Virginia Tech, as well as in locales in the Virginia Beach area. He can be seen regularly this summer at two places in particular along Virginia Beach – Shaka’s Live at 2014 Atlantic Ave., and Sidelines Sports Theater Bar & Grille at 3497 Holland Rd. For updates about his upcoming shows, follow Robbie Russell on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Atlanta, GA – Music is in artist Emilio Ruffin’s blood. The son and cousin of musicians, Emilio had access to a home studio at a young age. “Ever since then, I’ve been attracted to music.” The artist’s musical influences are diverse, drawing from a variety of genres and sounds, such as Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, and even pop icon Lady Gaga. “A lot of people compare me to The Weekend, and call my kind of music ‘dark R&B,’” explains Emilio.
His album, Luv N Lust, released last November, is the performer’s labor of love and has been met with a great deal of positivity. “Everybody who catches onto it, seems to enjoy it,” says the artist. Emilio’s favorite song off the album is a love song, titled “I Want to Love You.” Emilio explains the meaning behind the song, “It’s basically about a girl that I know, but I know she’s in a relationship. (We know each other distantly.) I see the guy mistreats her, I’m trying to hint to her “I can show you better.”
The unique artist’s music can’t be contained to one genre, as each song is inspired by life experiences in the moment. As Emilio explains it, “An artist isn’t always going to paint apples. Some days, they might paint trees.” Emilio’s music cannot be contained in a box, and he is eager to explore different genres and sounds and expand his musical horizons.
Luv N Lust is an important step for the artist, who explains that this is his most significant – and possibly final – attempt at making his music career meet its full potential. A Hail Mary effort of sorts, Emilio says, “This will be the last time I put my all into my music,” proving the stakes are especially high for this record. Listen on SoundCloud and YouTube.

Looking back on his childhood, musician and songwriter JoeCat seems to have always been destined for the limelight and music industry.
“I grew up winning talent shows my entire life, so I guess performing was something I always had in me,” he stated.
After meeting in college, he and his friend and producer, Kinderr, have been making beautiful music since. In the last couple of years, they’ve racked up quite a few accomplishments. They won the Battle of Corpus Christi, 2 years ago, and over the span of two months competed and beat out 32 artists for first place. Their music has appeared on various MTV shows, the NBA, and Tony Hawk’s “The Ride Channel.”
“We’ve also had our song considered for Fast and Furious 7. We’re on hold right now for an opportunity with Epic records for a movie placement,” stated JoeCat.
The two have recently teamed up for their latest album release titled “420.” Unlike their previous work which has an electronica feel to it, JoeCat says this latest project has more of hip hop vibe to it.
“We’re very excited about it. We’ve put a lot of hard work into it, and we look forward to where it takes it,” stated JoeCat.
One of the first songs from that album is a fun, upbeat track titled “Money Comes, Money Goes.” According to JoeCat, it was the first song he and Kinderr worked on together after he moved back from California.
“It was inspired from a Daft Punk sample. It reminds us of marching band. It’s super bouncy. The title is self-explanatory. It’s really catchy,” he explained.
JoeCat says he and his producer friend, Kinderrr, owe a lot of their success so far to El Dusty, a mentor signed to Universal Music Latin Entertainment.
“He’s kind of our big brother that we’re hoping to tour with a lot in the future. He’s helped us out a lot,” stated JoeCat.
