Posted by James Klein on July 9, 2020 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

It’s four months until the election for Culver City Council on November 3rd, but Yasmine-Imani McMorrin has already been working on her campaign since November, 2019.

"I started to campaign last year because I wanted to get a running start, and be prepared for everything I would have to do,” said McMorrin. “The most important thing is to connect with Culver City voters, and listen to all voices in our community. That's where my campaign is coming from, first and foremost, to be responsive to constituents, and to run a campaign focused on inclusion, equity, health, and safety.”

Yasmine-Imani McMorrin is planning twice-monthly “Connect with Yasmine” Zoom sessions with people who care about Culver City, and will be holding “Office Hours” starting in August, when constituents can meet individually with the candidate.

Now, first off, let me say for tha record that I have never personally met Figg Newton yet so I have no reason to sugarcoat anything in this article. He's a rapper I've heard people talk about sporadically over tha years. But, nobody personally suggested his music to me. Well, I was browsing YouTube one day and I came across some of his content. By this time, I've already heard of him. So, I felt moved to see what he was talkn bout. When I first watched tha music video for "We Started The…

Q&A: Hip Hop Artist Seven Da Pantha breaks down his Latest EP "K4G 1.5" w/ Mistah Wilson

Posted by Mistah Wilson on June 14, 2020 at 11:19am 0 Comments

Seven Da Pantha, an emcee at heart, has been as persistent as anyone in tha field of recording & performing music. With his recent release of K4G 1.5, we caught up wit' Seven to discuss tha inspiration behind this effort. Seven Da Pantha is already sending a message by way of him being tha only lyricist on tha project. I appreciate tha fact that I don't hear anyone else in his music. When I listen to Seven Da Pantha songs, it reminds of me Seven Da Pantha and no one else.

Representing Tacoma, WA, Seven Da Pantha is serious when it comes to music. From songs dating all tha way back to 2004, and possibly earlier, it comes as no surprise that this artist has dedicated himself to a journey of expression that one can only experience by tuning in. You know, these days, when we talk about wack rappers and who's actually worth…

One-Woman Show 'Down to Eartha' to Debut in Los Angeles

Posted by SPMG Media on March 11, 2020 at 10:56am 0 Comments

Actress, singer, author, and activist Eartha Kitt might be best known as the singer behind "Santa Baby" and "C'est si bon," or as the third Catwoman on the sixties Batman TV series. However, a government-led blacklisting following anti-war statements she made at a President Lyndon Johnson White House luncheon in 1968 halted her career for an entire decade. The infamous blacklisting forms the basis for Down To Eartha, the AUDELCO nominated one-woman show which will begin its residency at the Ruby Theater at the Complex (6476 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90036), October 9 - 12, 2020. Tickets for all shows are on sale now.

"I simply loved her as a young girl growing up in the theater," said Down To Eartha producer and…
