Local Trenton Youths Dance with Mariah Carey



TRENTON — A Christmas miracle came early to two Trenton tweens who danced their way into the hearts of America and into the heart of a world famous celebrity, at the Rockefeller Tree Lighting spectacular.
“It was a real dream come true,” said Tiona Hill.  
Malcolm Wallace, 11, and Hill, 9, were selected to be back-up dancers for Grammy Winning Artist Mariah Carey during the taped performance on Tuesday night, at the world famous Rockefeller Ice Skating Rink. They were two of eight dancers selected during the auditioning process, to flank Carey during the performance.
 
 
“He held out his hand and helped (Mariah) down the stairs, during the song,” gushed Wallace’s grandmother Shirley Ward. “He said she was just like a regular person.”
 
 
 
 

The two are members of the Devastation Dance Crew, a city based hip-hop funk dance troupe. The entire “crew” of 17 members, flocked to New York City on Saturday to audition for the coveted spots to be choreographed to Carey’s famous Christmas carol, All I want for Christmas Is You; while in the shadows of the acclaimed singer and the overwhelmingly large Christmas Tree.



“He was one of 17 kids at the audition, and only 3 were called back that day,” recalls Ward. “They waited around but he was told that they could not use him.” However, to the great surprise of Wallace and his troupe manager Raquel Hill, the phone rang early Monday morning and Wallace was summon back to the midtown ice-skating ring to start working on the choreography.
 
 
Hill’s rise to dance fame is similar, she too was not orgianly selected during auditions, but was called back to perform.

New Mixtape Coming Soon....Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y

Live In Concert

 


 
 

According to 50, French Montana is The New Ja-Rule???



When asked if he would box French Montana on pay per view, 50 Cent called the Bad Boy rapper the “new Ja Rule.”
 
50 Cent and French Montana have been going back and forth on Twitter for the past few weeks, and it looks like the beef will be continuing as 50 Cent calls French the “new Ja Rule.”

“[Montana] had one song and you didn’t even care about it ’cause it had him on it. There was four other people on it,” Fif added. “That’s your new Ja Rule right now.”

When 50 Cent hit the scene with ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ back in 2003, many hip hop fans credited Fif with single handedly destroying Ja Rule’s career.

Fif continues to tell Mister Peter Parker how he feels about French Montana, expressing that Montana “ran his mouth prematurely” when he came at 50.

“He ran his mouth prematurely,” Fif said. “He’s really not ready to compete on any level with me.

When I drop a record and it becomes the number one selling record in 12 hours, after you saying that? I think you should be quiet a little bit. I’ll put him completely out of business. Off the block. Out the corner.”

Breeding Ground Spotlight: Trenton’s “Blue Collar” AP the MAYOR

by Will "Deshair" Foskey (@Deshair)


“If your heart and your brain is saying the same thing, enjoy the pursuit.” – AP the Mayor

Between Philadelphia and NYC on the Northeast Corridor, you’ll find Trenton; a small city by population, but thefifth wealthiest metropolitan area in the country. In Hip-Hop, the city is known for artists like Poor Righteous Teachers, production from Tony D (rest in peace) and the Legendary DJ Juice. And since the ’80s, Trenton Hip-Hop has influenced many artists; and while East Trenton grew, it didn’t birth a Rap icon.
Today, with a bustling Hip-Hop scene, the Trenton area is working towards making the industry take notice. One of the many artists on the campaign is AP the Mayor. AP is a technician, with backpack MC qualities. He calls his style of Rap music “Blue Collar,” and he doesn’t mind telling people that he writes down his lyrics.

In his conversation with AllHipHop.com, AP the Mayor talks about his expanding work ethic, his authentic approach to songwriting, and his lowly Philadelphia Eagles (*Chuck Creekmur voice*):


AllHipHop.com: How long have you been rapping? And how much of that time have you taken it seriously?

AP the Mayor (@APtheMAYOR): I’ve been rapping for 12 years. And have been taking it seriously for the past four. I’ve spent a lot of time experimenting and perfecting my flow, growing into my sound. When I first started, I noticed that nobody recited my verses. I represent Underworld Entertainment, and nobody was reciting my verses, not even my crew. I remember spending one summer writing verse after verse, throwing them in the trash, perfecting my flow. On the next project, people began reciting my lines, then my verses. I knew I was on the right path then.

AllHipHop.com: You’re very proud of being authentic – that you’re a 9-5, and the streets weren’t your vice. Who does your music speak to, and who does it speak for?

AP the Mayor: My music speaks to everybody that has a grind, to everybody that has a hustle, that Blue-collar Hip-Hop. I don’t feel that people necessarily have to live the way I do; having that 9-5, doing things the positive way. I represent results. I represent the people that are doing anything to win.


AllHipHop.com: Authenticity led you down a path of showing vulnerability through your music.
Talk about songs like “Pride” and “Depression”.



AP the Mayor: Each time I do songs like “Pride” and “Depression”, I receive positive feedback from conscious listeners of the music. Those are real records. I write down whatever comes to me. It’s pure emotion. And sometimes it doesn’t even rhyme. I don’t scribble out lyrics by weak or strong.

AllHipHop.com: Be honest, how do you feel about your Eagles this year?

AP the Mayor: Destroy and Rebuild. I’m a prideful Philadelphia Eagles fan. I feel that’s why other fans hate us. Because no matter what our team is going through, we feel we’ll be back. We just need to destroy what we have and start all over.

AllHipHop.com: If you were the GM, what would be your first move?

AP the Mayor: I would get rid of the entire coaching staff. I’ve been a fan of the Eagles since ’96. And it would feel like every year, you’d hear rumblings about getting rid of Andy Reid. I didn’t support it until this year. I’ve seen some things with Andy during his press conferences that showed me it was time. He’s a great coach, but the team needs a new voice.

AllHipHop.com: Being a long time staple in the Trenton Rap scene, give a few reasons why major labels should pay more attention to the area.

AP the Mayor: We’re a melting pot for Hip-Hop. We’re located in the center of two major markets (Philly and NYC). Trenton is small compared to Philly and NYC. But if you come here and get introduced to the scene, you’ll be amazed by the stories being told here. There’s a unique source of talent here.

AllHIpHop.com: Who is in your Top 5?

AP the Mayor: The Notorious B.i.G., Jay-Z, Nas, Joe Budden, Lil’ Wayne

AllHipHop.com: To close this out, talk about “Stay”.

AP the Mayor: “Stay” is a remake from Nas’ latest album, Life is Good. What we’re (Dre Skuffs) talking about in the record is the struggle of an independent artist. Personally, I have my moments where I fall in and out of love with the grind of making it. It’s personal, I’m talking about wanting to spread my brand against all odds. But at the end of my verse, I talk about how every time I want to quit, something tells me to just stay. I want to give a quick shout to my team, Deuce Jones, Alamaj, Levi Lennon, Jaya Creates, Spiz, Boowie, Val the Grain, Surg, and Hellfire.
