Let me say this. This boy is FINEEEEEE in the name. It’s rear you find an artist that WE think is Fine. On that note, allow us here at #TSB to introduce you to the Man who makes us Moist, Richie Skye… Shouts to #RAmag for the story.

After introducing you to the man behind the music in the Issue 7 Release of Raynbow Affair Magazine, Richie Skye is back at it with a new Project. This upcoming release entitled “Thirst Trap” is perfect for this here season of dehydration.

Thirst Trap_cover_1600x1600DJ. Producer. Songwriter. And now the Artist… Already an established DJ, having traveled internationally, toured the US, hosted the popular Morning Wood Show show, Richie Skye is set to release his brand new album, Thirst Trap, on August 28th, 2015. Preceded by the hit singles “Jammin”, “Kidz” and “Scrub The Ground”, the album fuses party anthems, ratchet hood jams and dancehall and house music to match the various musical styles he loves as a DJ. Like Calvin Harris and David Guetta, Richie Skye is indeed covering all his bases in his quest for global music domination.

His journey began more than ten years ago when Skye wrote his first song after the ugly demise of a relationship. The song, called Stop, was later recorded, five years after he began producing, by the group he co-founded, Ellis Uniques. During that time, Skye began DJing local house parties and functions while recording the group’s debut album. It was also during that time that Skye produced an album of electronic music for House of Dance, a U.S.-based dance studio center. After Ellis Uniques disbanded in 2009, Skye continued pursuing his musical endeavors, taking a year to fully develop his sound as he prepared for his return to the spotlight.

“You know, I’ve really come a long way, musically. I’ve honed my craft as a DJ and a producer, so now it’s about putting this body of work out there for people to really understand what I can do. I’m not just a DJ, I’m building a brand with music, technology, visuals and more. There’s so much more in store.” With bookings scheduled in the US and internationally, a role on the critically acclaimed, Emmy- award-winning indie soap drama Anacostia The Series season 4 (alongside Emmy-winning soap veteran Martha McMahon – As The World Turns), a album, Thirst Trap, set for release in August, his new talk show interviewing artists, authors, entertainers, and other celebrities – Richie on the Rocks, and a recent move to the West Coast, the future is looking bright for Richie Skye. Pre-orders for the new album begin on July 17, 2015 for $5.99 and once ordered, fans will immediately get the instant gratification tracks Buss It 4 Me, a ratchet hood jam, and Hardcore featuring Sol Edler, and thumping, high octane electronic banger.

In speaking with Richie Skye yesterday, he had this to say about the upcoming project, ““This project is the result of an extremely long year of blood, sweat, tears and tribulations. I went through a lot to make this album. I lost jobs, moved to the West Coast – all during the process of making this album. However, the feeling of the album is all about tempo. I’m a DJ, so I wanted to be able to play this at parties and events where I spin. I look at artists like Calvin Harris and David Guetta as inspiration. As a creative person, it’s just in me to think about the big picture and that’s building a brand. There’s more music, videos, shows and things to come because I’m already prepping for what’s next. Additionally, I want to be an inspiration. You don’t have to settle for what life hands you; it’s up to you to decide what type of life you’re going to live. I was at my lowest points while making this album, but I never stopped believing in where this journey would take me, so I sacrificed making mixes, or going on trips, so that I could put this together and now that its done – I’m ready for the world to hear it. I’m not stopping and this is only the beginning!”

The Legend: Coko of SWV vs. The KNOT: K. Michael


Now listen, we all know that here at TrueSlamBook we keep it 100. It’s no secret that recently on the BET Awards Tamar Braxton and K. Michael joined Patti LaBelle for a performance. Babeeeeeeeeeeee! The read is, Tamar came out looking like Champagne Cola on Coke. K. Michael started out doing a Burlesque Class then went in back and got ready for the Inaugural Ball with that UGLY Olive Green dress on. Now, as if that wasn’t enough, the Notes were all WRONG…. Chile, had Mother Patti not come out when she did the performance would have been a PURE T BUST.

Meanwhile in Twitterville, the fans were very vocal of their disappointment with the performance. Of course it’s only fitting that they reach out to a Legend to save the day. This is where it gets good. Follow me, Legendary Bad Bich Cheryl ‘Coko’ Clemons of SWV was on Twitter and hear the cries of her fans. Being the interactive celebrity that she is she decided to do a few RTs and provide a few “LoL” emoji’s. In case you missed it, it looked a little something like this:

@Only1Coko RT @Undefined_CHELE: And I love K Michelle but know your damn range and limit… If you not KeKe or @Only1Coko don’t sing that song. Except in the shower”

 Haaaaaaaaaa My Lord!!!!! where is or Patti or If Only You Knew” 

Jun 28  wowwww I was just think the same exact thinggggg

 Where’s ?!?! I can’t with these notes!! Jesus!!”

You get the point. Coko is at home minding her saved business and the fans are reaching out for assistance. Meanwhile in KNOTville, K. Michael Tweets,

 Coko but they didn’t ask you or your chopped teeth to perform. Your at home. Stop trying it. Love wins”

Followed by,

K. Michelle @kmichelle I’m sorry I’m cracking jokes, I’m drinking”

Sooooooooooooooooooooo, she’s buck. Now we all know in the Game of Fame you NEVER come for a Legend. Babeeeeeee, when I tell you Coko shut it down in the most astut manner. She simply tweeted,

I am Coko! @Only1Coko Anywho, time to pack! Back on the road tomorrow!!
Yes GAWD Legendary Tees. You betta come thru serving her 23 years and counting. While she 23 months and trying to hold on! Now you know it wouldn’t stop there. I head over to Instagram to post my pics from the BET Awards and Babeeeeeeeeeeeeee. The Tee got Real:

It was at this moment that the game had to change.

Funny how a Song Title can fit a Situation YEARS Later!!!!!!

Why is K. Mess up here acting like she forgot her mouth use to look like how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Furthermore, she looked like she was going to bust out of that olive green monstrosity she called a dress with all that pumped body. Chile, please. Never come for the one who made your dreams possible. Don’t make me call Memph……. I digress…….. One thing to remember, Coko ain;t been SAVED all her LIFE…… She Reads for FILTH………

On another note, Did you see Lil Kim Slay the Stage????? Legends Always WIN…..
