Hip Hop is saved.I’ve been following Bronx, NY native AtLas’ since 2006 and she even came all the way down to Houston to put on a show at an event of mine in 2007. Unfortunately, I was slipping in my fandom until someone on Twitter sent me the YouTube video from her September 2014 album release party. Man! She’s still got it, she’s still got it and a new look too! LOVE <3 button. AtLas' aka Polaryss' lyrical flow and Freestyling skills are BANANAS!

  • An Intimate Interview with Karma
    1 Comment

    By Kitty Y. Williams The first time I met the lovely Karma aka The Diva of Hip Hop Blues, I was sitting off to myself observing the scene at the 2012 RedZone Ultimate Music Fest and Awards put on by Fiyaworks Entertainment and friends. There to accept an award along with several other movers and shakers in the independent music scene here in Houston, I remember this very pretty slender lady in pink who came and sat next to me, striking up a conversation out of the blue. I can’t recall everything we discussed but remembered her having a very humble presence and beauty that stood out in the crowded room. Karma was performing that night and unfortunately I ended up missing it due to additional obligations that evening. Upon later discovering that she was the Headliner at Cole’s of Houston for a Valentine’s Day event the following year, my sweetheart and I made a point to go see her LIVE. It’s always refreshing to see a beautiful woman holding it down across multiple genres

    Article Short Link: http://TheINDIEgatorMag.com/?p=4254 IceJJFish YouTube Star YouTube Star, IceJJFish. Image © Instagram.com/icejjfish by Kitty Y. Williams Whether Daniel “IceJJFish” McLoyd considers himself a serious Musician or a Comedian who enjoys playing with people’s perceptions of him, one thing is for sure. He knows how to grab attention and keep you coming back thirsty looking for more. He knows how to keep people talking about him and his Art. Yes, I said it. Art. It is truly an art form to go after your dream and capture a nation’s love, or even ridicule. While some viewers have said he sounds “...like a thousand angels melded into one voice!”, that and his dance moves have remained open for debate by many. Either way, he’s surrounded by sexy ladies, always. I remain confused yet intrigued. Now that is power! You can find him online under @IceJJfish on most social media websites.

  • Gospel Artist Shaun G’s Gift to the World
    2 Comments

    Facebook│YouTube│ Vevo│ Twitter│ Instagram - Article Short Link: http://theindiegatormag.com/?p=4152 In September of 2013 I was invited to a Jam Session at a TV studio in Houston that was featuring a Gospel Artist visiting from Dallas to film a few promos and interviews. My good friend and long time Business associate, Jay (JM & Associates), thought it would be a great idea for me to check this Artist out for a feature in The INDIEgator magazine. Shaun G, is originally from St. Louis but has been living in Texas for the latter years of his life.  Shaun was first introduced to music as a young boy in church and just loved the sound and rhythm especially of Gospel, R&B and Jazz due to their chord changes and the soul behind them. Even so, he still claims to love all styles of music simply because “every style is different and should be appreciated.” His first opportunity to get in on that action and perform himself was during a Christmas program at his home

    Mag Editor Kitty Y. Williams, Event Organizer Jazzy Red and Musician C-Bank$ at Coles of Houston 2/14/2013. by Kitty Y. Williams Family Reunion On Valentines Day 2013, The INDIEgator Magazine was invited out by Jazzy Red Productions and Butterflies Creation to celebrate a night of love and good music with a magnificent feast provided by Comfort Food Caterers and their über hot Server who made sure my plate was overflowing with all of Jazzy's good cooking. I'd have to say it was the probably the most enjoyable Valentine's Day I've had in a while. Part of my excitement was the nostalgia from reuniting with so many people like my old friends Jazzy Red and C-Bank$ whom I hadn't seen in a few years and Molew Designs who was there vending custom made earrings. There were several other beautiful people we got the opportunity to meet as well including DJ H-Town Butta and Emcee/Promoter Yolanda B who came down from Austin for the event. Old School Style After everyone had a chance to

    - As seen in the Oct/Dec 2012 issue of The Indiegator, Pages 51-54. Official Website │ Myspace │ Twitter │ YouTube │ deviantART by Kitty Y. Williams In our July/Sep 2012 issue we did a Meet the Artist front page feature on our friend Fitz Roy G. who helped design the first three covers of The Indiegator. Many of our readers begged to know more about the man behind the art. So for this issue, we decided to give the people what they want and share an Exclusive interview we did just for you guys! It is important that we mention Fitz Roy is not just a Comic Artist but he is also a Musician, and in this interview we discuss his love of both. Fitz, where are you from and where do you reside now? I’m originally from Western New York but have been living in Houston since 1998. What first got you into music? I needed an outlet to express pain that I never felt before. This woman broke my heart so I found a way of spitting on her without actually doing the act. Wow.
