    Raheem DeVaughn

    R&B

    Raheem DeVaughn’s story begins with music—his mother’s vinyl collection to be exact. “I always loved music so I would sneak into her record collection when she wasn’t around and play her stuff,” says DeVaughn. Although his parents were not together, his father, noted jazz musician Abdul Wadud, was an influence as well. “Music was just always around me”, says DeVaughn. “I can remember at a very young age, standing in my mother’s living room, listening to music and saying to myself, ‘I’m going to be an entertainer.’ It was that simple for me. I think I just always knew.”

    R&B

    Born in Stuttgart, Germany to a military father turned preacher, Ro James found himself moving around for most of his childhood. From Indiana, California, Hawaii, Oklahoma to the place he now calls home, New York, music was always in the forefront of James' life. His musical inspirations come from the sounds of Johnny Cash, Prince, Tupac, Jodeci, and more. Since his emergence in 2013, Ro James has worked with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Brenmar. That same year he also released an EP trilogy: Coke, Jack & Cadillacs, which received critical praise from outlets such as The FADER, The Source, VIBE, and HypeTrak. Since then James has been covered by outlets including NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series, Interview Magazine, Rolling Stone, Us Weekly and more. Noisey calls his music, "a subtle blend of smoothed out, soulful R&B..." and Billboard declares "James' sound is reminiscent of the greats, think Prince meets D'Angelo..." Combining these influences with his journey, he has crafted his best work to date on ELDORADO. Released, May 27th, James' debut album ELDORADO entered the charts at #3 on The Billboard R&B Albums Chart and #8 on the Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums Chart.

    ELDORADO’s lead single, the sultry “Permission” topped the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart for 10 weeks and earned James his first ever Grammy nomination for R&B Performance. He also earned a nomination for Best New Artist at the 2016 Soul Train Awards where he delivered an electrifying performance of “Already Knew That” and “Permission.” With the release of ELDORADO, his soulful grit, impassioned vocals and clear vision as an artist, Ro James is defining his place in music and continuing to share his journey along the way.

    Beanie Sigel was born Dwight Grant in Philadelphia on March 6, 1974. Sigel was a name he took from that of a street in his tough south Philadelphia neighborhood; "Beanie" was a nickname his grandmother gave him. Like many other young people in musically rich Philadelphia, Sigel tried out his hip-hop wordsmith skills, appearing on a mixtape assembled by producer DJ Clue and contributing a verse to the Roots' "Adrenaline." In the fall of 1998 he caught the attention of the duo Philly's Most Wanted, later famed for their album Get Down or Lay Down, who were at the time little known beyond Philadelphia. The duo persuaded Sigel to join them at a meeting with the heads of the Roc-a-Fella label, rapper Jay-Z and entrepreneur Damon Dash, who were then well on their way to becoming the most consistent hit makers in hip-hop music. At the meeting, Sigel impressed both Jay-Z and Dash with his rhymes. He wasn't a virtuoso poet, but his material was straightforward and vivid, filled with detail about the violent life on Philadelphia's streets.

    A well respected contributing media personality, Doggie Diamonds has been at the forefront of many renowned one on one's with a multitude of influential individuals in and out of the Hip Hop culture. Now focused on the podcast sphere, Doggie Diamonds has been cultivating pivotal content since 2016. Created in effort to provide a platform for unsung heroes, and distribution of unfiltered perspective, the motivation for his new venture was the frequent inquiry into his insight on burning topics within the culture and industry.

    Always one to answer the call, Doggie Diamonds have built on the foundation of his interview experience and journey within Hip Hop.

    "When I sat and thought about it, I was podcasting before I knew I was actually doing. With my background in radio, all I had to do was strip down the audio from my shows and upload."

    From his work as co-owner of Forbez DVD, to work on The Come up DVD as well as his Doggie Diamonds TV platform (100K subscribers on YouTube) Doggie Diamonds has laid the cement for a legacy in journalism. A true influencer, his goal of competing at a high level will never be compromised. Ranking as high as #3 on iTunes in the music podcast category, Doggie Diamonds has set the bar to say the least.

    The plan is to have one of the top podcasts in the podcasting industry. From top tier guests and doing more live podcasts we seize the opportunity of broad distribution through google play, stitcher, castbox, spotify, youtube, iheartradio, radio one, tunein, deezer.

    From notables such as Charlamagne Tha God, Freeway Ricky Ross, Peedi Crakk, 38 Spesh, Choke No Joke, Math Hoffa, Ali Vegas, Kidd Kidd, and Mitchy Slick to so many more, the Doggie Diamonds podcast is the result of curating content on a platform dedicated to the culture.”
