    1 Comment

    Caneil Chill Oliver Gives Birth to "Street Gospel" On February 28th 2015, Spoken Word Artist and Actor Caneil Chill Oliver gave birth to his newest album Street Gospel. I made the trip up north from Houston to visit this Entertainer in his hometown of Aurora, Illinois and watched him "Represent for the Kingdom". Only his closest friends, family and supporters were invited to the delivery and by the end of the evening, not a soul was left untouched. In this Exclusive Interview with The INDIEgator Magazine the day after, Chill opens up about how he felt everything went and if he accomplished everything he aimed for with the event. We'll also learn about some of the people who helped make it possible and what the future has in store for this anointed being. You can find this in-depth interview in our April 2015 paperback and download editions, as well as watch it on video via YouTube: INDIEgator News. Also check out our article “The Travel Log: Hello Chicago!” to read about how

  • The MrBugz Review: J-Bugg aka Logic
    1 Comment

    - As seen in the July/Sep 2012 issue of The Indiegator, Page 55. Spoken Word │ Gospel │ Hip Hop Atlanta, GA Official Website by Austyn "MrBugz" Jeter From the beginning of time, humans have expressed themselves through music. The power of a song can pull on emotions in every way possible from provoking laughter to compelling a person to tears. Persuasive lyrics can tell a story so strong that a listener might feel they have actually witnessed the Songwriter’s heartfelt experience, or thoughts of a similar situation may be brought to mind. Logic is that Songwriter. He provides an insightful look at the call of the streets and the struggles of everyday life. The desperation of criminals generally reflects in their crimes. Knowing both extremely underprivileged as well as extremely successful people has opened the mind of Logic to think on a global level, not just on how he grew up. It’s not always greed that possesses a person to turn to crime; sometimes it’s mere

    - As seen in the July/Sep 2012 issue of The Indiegator, Pages 33-38 Official Website │ Facebook │ Twitter │ YouTube by Kitty Y. Williams Monica Matthews, a Spoken Word Artist and Motivational Speaker, first waltzed onto our radar in April 2012 at Lyrics Poetry Lounge in Houston, TX. Hosted by Poet AJ McQueen and Comedian/Musician Mic Tunez, the night was definitely one to remember, especially for us first timers. The Indiegator was initially there just to support Chicago Spiritual Poet "Chill" who traveled down south to perform at the venue and feature in our April/June issue. But as the night went on, as every new Poet stepped on the stage to share their pieces amidst candlelit tables, live piano playing, and free gourmet food, we couldn't help but stick around a while longer and bask in the atmosphere of peace, love and creativity. The theme for the night seemed to be spiritually geared. Of all the performers that evening, Monica Matthews most certainly stood out as

    - As seen in the July/Sep 2012 issue of The Indiegator, Pages 41-46. Facebook │ Twitter │ Storm Magazine by Kitty Y. Williams In 2011, I ran into Prosperity SeVen at a local Houston TV station as she was auditioning for a new POM TV production, America’s Next Big TV Star. A Journalist friend of mine had mentioned her to me before. P7 and I began talking about all the things she was doing professionally and the conversation was so good, I invited her to share it with me on The Kitty Williams Show. We mainly talked about her challenges with being a victim of Domestic Abuse and how she finally found a positive outlet and ultimately broke free of those chains. So many doors have been opening for Prosperity SeVen and her future looks far brighter than before. It is as if she caught a new wave of blessings, a second chance at a life full of prosperity. Below is that August (2011) interview from the show and afterwards are UPDATES of everything she’s been getting into

To date, He still has had the biggest audience my radio show has ever had. We love that here. Speaking of radio, in order to help you get to know Chill better if you haven’t had the chance to be
