Merchandise release party at Hev! Lifting Vol. 1!
Hev! Lifting Vol 1. | FM Restaurant | February 23, 2019
Welcome to my first blog post of 2019....well ever! I decided to start this blog as a way to keep my fans up to date with recent shows, upcoming projects, and new music that will be released from the Wiseguys Creative Camp. January 23rd was nothing short of special for a team that has been working to establish itself since 2014. It was the first time that any member of the Wiseguys Camp performed in Virginia! As a native of the Hampton Roads area, I remember seeing the legendary DJ Bee and dope local artists such as Billy Mercury performing on the FM restaurant stage during my days at Norfolk State University! This is a small venue that has always been a special home for hip-hop lovers in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.
Much of what was experienced from this night started with a relationship between Wiseguys artist Usef Soul and marketing mastermind ShotbyWes! ShotbyWes is a very talented videographer and marketer from Virginia and in an effort to release his teams merchandise brand, Hev!, he decided to create Hev! Lifting Vol. 1, a showcase to promote Hev!'s first artists, TeezySoDope, and other local artists within the area. Usef Soul had the opportunity to express himself in his first show of the year in a manner that proved his work ethic and craftsmanship to his home state. It was a great experience to hear the production that Usef and I worked on being played in the state that we grew up. As any artists knows, a performance in your home state is a feeling like no other. Additionally, many of our college friends, fraternity brothers, and family members were in attendance to the show and provided much of the support throughout the night. I was able to connect with other artists in the city while hearing the hidden talent within the 757 region. This was only the beginning of a series of Hev! Lifting showcases, and I hope that you will continue to follow the brand so that you can have the opportunity to attend the next showcase.
