Each week I am going to post artist’s that I believe people should check out! This week I have two artists from Cleveland who have 2 totally different styles, but have music that anyone will love and enjoy. From your conscious music to booty shaking music or even to rhythm & blues, if the content is dope, I want to be one of the first to promote it!!!

Last month I had the chance to meet with this up & coming artist who goes by the name of Malik X. A conscious individual who describes himself as someone who is consciously trying to get some money. He is a young artist who you can tell is grinding his way thru this business & is making his own lane. Malik X is also a co-owner of a nice venue in Cleveland called The Underground. It’s a place that offers spoken word, open mic nights, and performances from many of the talented artists in the city, as well as Malik X. Make sure to stay tuned for I will be posting my interview with him soon! Check out 2 of his recent singles below & make sure to follow @king_lftg on both twitter & instagram.

Now…I find it amazing how you can follow someone for YEARS on social media & not really know much about them! Well, this artist who goes by the name of Chris J Allday, is one of those people. I got to listen to his project called “Allday” and I am in complete awe of this project. Chris has a delivery that commands your attention but allows you to truly peep his lyrics while vibing to the beat. The “Allday” project was released a couple of months ago and has songs to sit back & vibe to, turn up to, and even shake ya ass to LOL Just like I mentioned for the artist above, I guarantee this will not be the last time you will hear of Chris J Allday. Check out a few of the songs from off his recent project & make sure to follow @chrisjallday on instagram.


Hey! Don’t forget that 216 The Beat Radio station is the platform for all those voices who are being UNHEARD!!! I had the pleasure to check out these 2 artists singles that I actually liked & I feel have a message to be spread! Sometimes we can’t always post the most repetitive things…I like to show how diversified we are as a station, and I do know for a fact that Cleveland has a whole smorgasbord of talent….check these 2 out!!

C-Still states that this song is about no matter what the situation is being true to yourself, not giving up, and always remembering that you always got the better hand…..that you can make your situation turn out to be the best situation. RATHER BE ME!!


Hey family! ITS HUMP DAY!!!!!And also the middle of the week so thankful that Friday will be here in 2 days! While waiting for this special day my ladies are repping on a whole level! Talented reggae artist from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Spice, dropped a video explaining being treated differently by people due to the color of her skin. Its basically the light skinned versus dark skinned issue. Then, my friend in my head, Cardi B, FINALLY dropped a single that I must say will be another banger *insert dj khalid voice* ANOTHER ONE!! LOL Lastly, my Miami queen Trina dropped a hot single letting all y’all know that she is still the Baddest Bitch! Comment your thoughts below!!
