#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
6’6 240 got booked for a show at Fairmont State college with Trina and Bubba Sparxxx, we were openers, and like we always do we brought a bunch of CDs and business cards to pass around backstage. We saw Bubba and his crew checking us out when we performed, so I knew I had to get them a CD, and I did. Bubba was extremely cool, said he liked the show, and would check out the CD.
Jump up to 4 months later, I get a call from a Georgia area code ( I know the area code because I use to live in Atlanta, and my brother Gandhi lives there still). I did not believe it was Bubba at first, but to make a long story short, he said he had been pumping the CD while on tour, and he wanted us to come down to Atlanta and vibe out.
Me and my brother (6’6 240) met at the Cheesecake Factory in Lennox Mall in Atlanta with Bubba and his manager Bobby Stamps, i ordered calamari and some drinks (remember this point), and we just vibed out, talked about the state of music at the time, and how similar our styles and personal backgrounds were, we were all on that proud country, trailer park, us against the world, hip hop music. Then they said something that caught me and my brother off guard, they said lets go to the studio, and we were like Hell Yeah! Then they said, yeah we gonna go by my boy Rico’s studio, which I followed with “you mean Rico Wade of Organized Noise?” and they said yes, me and my brother played it cool, but once we got in the car we started geeking out. We were both HUGE Organized Noise fans, and we were walking into the Dungeon Family Recording studios. We get there, and meet Rico, and and the team. They played a beat and Bubba and my brother started writing, I’m in full groupie mode looking at plaques on the wall, all the equipment I’ve only seen in order books, then my stomach started to rumble. That calamari was not sitting right, and maybe the moment was intensifying it but it was getting uncontrollable, so I go to the famous Dungeon family Studios bathroom, and puke my brains out. I kept saying to myself “dont F this up, dont F this up”, I scrubbed that bathroom like a first generation slave trying to cover it up. Once I went back out in the studio, I could tell Bubba and my brother was connecting on a personal level. We went on to become affiliates of New South Music (Bubba & Bobby’s brand) and have been performing, and working together ever since, we are as not as active as we use to be, but we do talk to each other a few times through out the year.
Me and Bobby Stamps became real close, I consider him a mentor, and a friend, and to have a guide for your dreams, someone who has done what your trying to do is invaluable, and I will always be New South, and always grateful for checking out the 2 brothers from West Virginia. – by Monstalung
“SupaCat” [VIDEO] ft @1abreezy @66240 @acebeanzjeff @johnnyharmonic1 @monstalung #juneizsoundvizion Day10
The making of this video was very emotional, we did this a couple years after everyone had relocated, and this was the first of our reunion show, and we coordinated this video shoot around everyone returning to Morgantown for the get together show. Johnny had been in LA for a couple years now, A Breezy just moved to LA also, in fact her and Johnny were roommates in Los Angeles, 6’6 240 moved to Cleveland, leaving me and Ace Beanz here in Morgantown. We recorded the song a year before, so I was just waiting on a time I could get everyone together to release it. So as you see in the video we did a 2 location shoot, one at the reunion show at 123 pleasant st (we call it home), and the other one was the next day in my backyard, and made a picnic out of it. The show was awesome, it was during the summer, and the small college town of Morgantown is kind of slow during that time, but it was a blessing in disguise because it made it more local with family and friends coming out to re-connect with old friends. Other member of Soundvizion where also there, such as Phyr Squad, B-Hyphen, Adam Payne, 808 Circus, Willz P, and we had a ball performing together. The next day we met up for the video shoot, and one thing about my squad, they can party, you get 6’6 240, Ace Beanz, A-Breezy, and Johnny Harmonic together, there is gonna be some drinking going on, which makes for a great picnic, but a dysfunctional video shoot, but it was way worth it, as much as I love this video, it doesn’t give justice to how much love and fun those 2 days were. We are doing our reunion show this coming Friday at 123 pleasant St June 16, 2016, everyone is trying to make it so it should be good. I wish i could get Paycheck Game, Marcus D’tray, DJ Bearcat, & Big Chief of 304 Reconz more involved with these shows, there is no Soundvizion without 304 Reconz, that is something we can work on in the future, because these reunion shows are not stopping anytime soon. It started as way to celebrate the music we made together, but in all honesty, its just a family Reunion with the loved ones, artist who build relationships with music and West Virginia as the common bond, but now its just about being with my best friends. -by Monstalung
