Check out Pittsburgh’s own Crystal Seth respond to Kendrick Lamar’s “Control!” Hear his rendition below:
Mez, a female newcomer to the Pittsburgh Music scene, is making waves dropping her single, Monsters.” She’s already doing a few things right, one, she’s working with a few of Pittsburgh’s hottest producers. Ricky P, Roscoe Wiki, and Christo have all had the pleasure of gracing her music with their talents in one way or another. Two, she’s working with a great video team. The Official Video for “Monsters” drops in January of 2014 and I am sure that’s gonna bang with Dan Meyers overseeing the work.
This cryptic, beautiful young lady has big things in the works. I love the new tracks, in an erie sort of way. The third thing working in her favor is her voice! With such a natural, authentic tone to it, I’m drawn to the song and the artist. But it’s something I can’t really put my finger on, I just know I wanna hear more from Mez. I can’t find out a lot about her, but her voice is so penetrating I can’t get the song and the look in her eyes out of my head! Check out her visuals below and let us know what you think….
I can’t wait for the official video of “Monsters”!!

Pittsburgh’s own, J Spoolz & B-Brixx have teamed up once again to give us the club banger “Life of the Party” featuring Atlanta-based singer Jovan Dais. The track boasts a catchy R&B hook from Jovan Dais over a dope Get Cool production, as J Spoolz and B-Brixx trade verses.
The trio then hit one of the clubs with a gang of sexy ladies, a bunch of homies reppin Thirty Mob Music, and a videography crew headed by Matt Meehan. The end result was the official music video for “Life of the Party”. Click the link below to watch the “Life of the Party” music video now:

COPYWRITE(man bites dog records)- This Columbus native has been rocking mics since the late 90s.

Marios Dones has been recording and releasing music with Soul Vibe for years, making waves in the game with his superb flow skills, confident demeanor, and laid back, chronic-induced style on records. But Mario’s music style goes deeper than simply that. He conveys a message with his music in a diverse way. His ability to point out social discrepancies and not be afraid to speak on them is one of those ways. You can tell Mario’s thoughts arent just of sporting fancy cars, pimpin women, and being “hood”, even though he touches on the fast live and the party life style entertainers are known to live. Mario has a clearer calling and goal with his music than your average rapping MC and for this reason we commend him as an artist and have supported him since the beginning. The Soul Vibe member recently dropped a new album titled “Black Watermelon”. And we have it here on RepPgh for your listening pleasure.

This song, “Track 10″ is a leak from Frzy’s upcoming release, “iStyle” Special Edition Presented by DJ Wonder Boy. Official release date for the Mixtape, “iStyle,” is 12/12/13. He just leaked this smooth, sexy short video to promote the upcoming Mixtape release. And what an amazing leak to show the world exactly how diverse Frzy truly is and what this Mixtape is going to sound like! Personally, after the “WTF” video Ft. Lyric Da Queen, I was sold then. Now, this dope video just reinforces what I already think about Frzy’s music and movement. I have never seen Pittsburgh come together to support an artist on the rise like this! There is a first time for everything, I guess it just took the right Artist to get everyone’s attention. Even Mac & Wiz didn’t get their hometown’s support until after they were signed and making millions. Well, Frzy has my undivided attention. With bars like, “Your tracks don’t need a title, when your becoming an idle,” & “I swear these niggas spiteful, thinkin’ that they delightful.” I know he means the people and scene currently in Pittsburgh Hip Hop. It is unlike any other city, unless you live here you will never understand, its almost indescribable.
But, back to Frzy, this video is so sexy, yet classy at the same time. He looks like the superstar he is slowly turning into! He goes in again, “Breathe it, lyrically, I just killed it…… The man with the pen, who does nothin’ but win…. You do nothin but sin, so excuse the grin. These tuff guys wanna bang, I prefer Darwin.” He is so nice with the lyrics!! Witty, catchy and worlds above some of the ‘so called Hip Hop Artists’ that sell millions of records. Frzy will soon fit into that category, the sky is the limit for this star on the rise! Frzy is going to be everywhere, I suggest getting familiar now!! After his new video below, check out his Subway commercial!! He is an official spokes person for the Subway melt. Also, keep your eyes and ears open for his VEVO.com ‘Bars’ feature, and his new project to be dropped this coming Thursday!!!! RPHH was involved in the VEVO special, Joanna IIC, the owner of this website was interviewed!! I just can’t say enough good things about this incredibly talented man. He is so humble and grounded. Working with him is such a breathe of fresh air, no attitude, no ego, just pure confidence and an authentic, genuine character.

his contributions to tours staged by major artist from Pittsburgh such
as Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa whom hold Tolly in high regaurd. His
resilience in the streets shines through in his music, a survivor of 7
gunshot wounds, the death of his brother, law enforcement and people
trying to take advantage of his success, Tollys music embodies the
struggle of every person in the streets searching for a better life.
“Emerging Pittsburgh emcee Frzy is making a splash on the hip-hop scene with his new track “WTF,” and along for the ride is a familiar face to “X Factor” viewers: Lyric Da Queen.
Michigan femcee Lyric made a major impression on “The X Factor” Season 2 as part of the prefab hip-hop trio Lyric 145, putting her own unexpectedly tongue-twisting, hard-hitting take on “Party in the USA,” “Gangnam Style,” and even “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” So it’s no wonder that Frzy wanted to recruit her for “WTF,” which includes three 32-bar verses.
Frzy’s “WTF” video, premiering on Yahoo Music, takes the fast-paced energy of the song and creates a visual treat using stunning special effects by director Tom Larkin of Lethal Industries. It’s a feast for the senses and the ears, and Frzy and Lyric are indeed a winning combination.
