#juneizsoundvizion Day 26 “WV Clap” 6’6 240, Ace Beanz, DJ Sean Nice
R.I.P Lacy Neff. WV Clap is the 2nd most successful music release we have ever had at Soundvizion, and it was Lacy Neff (DJ at 102 FM-Radio WVAQ) that believed in the song, and played it on prime time on WVAQ, which then became a gameday anthem, thanks Lacy for believing in our music.
My dear freind DJ Sean Nice, who produced the track, was also at that time doing a DJ Show on WVAQ and would play the song on his show, between Lacy playing it prime-time, and Sean playing it in the evening, that song took off out the gate, next thing 98.7 the beat in Charleston started spinning it, we started booking more paid performances, it was a good time.
And the boys did their thing on that dope Sean Nice beat, Ace Beanz, and 6’6 240 has tag team a lot of beats over the years on almost all our projects, but this one was special, and I remember the vocal recording session going extremely fast, but very efficient.
Most producers when they submit beats for our artist I get a CD with maybe 10-20 beats. Not with Sean Nice, uh uh.
1. He aint submitting nothing, you going to see him.
2. You might leave with 3 beats, and you will have to beg for them, but no more than 3.
3. Everything he plays is bangers, so you really have to listen to everything and make some hard decisions.
Sean Nice is one of the most talented people i have met in my lifetime, period, master level execution in multiple aspects in the performing arts. Hopefully one day he will release some music to the public, because homie can do it all, and makes incredible music.
Our biggest music release ever is the “Gold and Blue” (West Virginia University football anthem), and “WV Clap” was the follow up off the 6’6 240 album “Hard Work and Dedication”, and it took off, and it opened up a lot of doors for us, none of that happens, without Lacy Neff believing in our song. Forever thankful Lacy.-by Monstalung
Fresh Like Dougie was getting great feedback, 400,000 video views, and picked up by Music Choice TV on cable, everyone was feeling the team joining forces on the same song, so we decided to do a whole mixtape together. This song is off the “Santa & Soundvizion Save Christmas mixtape”. This song “Ah Ok” features 6’6 240, Ace Beanz, A Breezy, and Willz P, and they go in on the Jay Electronica track. Everyone had their own solo projects going on, but we were getting great music from the collaboration songs, we should of gave the “Voltron” idea a little more attention…maybe.-by Monstalung.
Beanz had put in his time, and it showed in his craft, he was getting better, from song to to song, it was time for him to drop a full project. We just got done wrapping up the mixtape when we started working on his debut album “My SouthPark Story”, Beanz had a couple outside producers he wanted to work with, one being Sam Gotti, who produced this track “Cook It”. The first few minutes into recording it I knew we had one. This is one of those anthems felt everywhere, the vocal sample is relatable to hoods worldwide, and Beanz flow was just right for the beat. We got the song done early in the project, like the second or third song recorded, it made developing the rest of the songs easier. This song never got the push it deserved.-by monstalung
