It's early March 2014 and this year is already in full swing. We are now in the season of the Piscese...that means the double fish or double whatever icon you want to use brings double of..whatever.

Ok I could just be talking out the side of my neck. Anyway, what I want to lead up to is that there are now 2 new episodes of the SH-Xperience available to listen to and enjoy!! That's right, 2!! Why are there two episodes instead of one? The answer is simple: We recorded two episodes that were never released. These two episodes were recorded right after episodes 8, The All Female Takeover. Which was an incredible episode. Big shoutouts to Embishun for making that episode really shine with her interview.

This month's GFM Music Watch features Atlantic City native rapper Niro
Take a moment to watch the video for his song "Let My People Go" from his most recent mixtape release THE CROWNING.

Atlantic City Hip Hop Artist NIRO
The track was produced by J.DOE who also directed the music video as well. Niro is on top of his game as a lyricist, transcending the norm of what most people believe a hardcore rap artist should be. What I like most about the song is that Niro's lyrics give insight into what AC life is like for Black Americans as a whole and not just the youth living the street life. To me, I feel as though most of our young Black hip hop artists are centrally focused on what their lives are like from their perspectives and they miss out on how their actions, and the actions of others (as well as the law) affects Black American communities as a whole. Niro may not be writing lyrics based on all Black American communities, but he doesn't need to. He lives in Atlantic City, NJ where there is enough fodder for the pen than most people outside of NJ and the Tri-State area may know.

I frequently get asked by artists how should they proceed with getting their music in the GFM Catalog. Really its not about how you should proceed, its about what to consider before submitting your music to a music publisher. Though this post is mainly about how Grimm Factor Music is operating at this moment, I believe that this info can cover a broad range of companies like other music publishers, music libraries, and music curators. Even if you wanted to go right to the source and omit the middle man, these are still important things to consider.
