Career Highlights: KI Back At It – Jersey We Lit Records

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

His name is Alterik Finney, also known under the stage name KI Back At It. And he didn’t choose music…music chose him.

Currently owner/CEO of Jersey We Lit Records, KI Back At It began hitting the ground running in the music realm by creating concepts and writing music for over the past 10 years, contributing his multifaceted skills for both small indie labels and larger ones for independent artists as well. Since then, he has manifested into a versatile and innovative artist with his own signature sound and stylization.

But things weren’t always so easy for the Elizabeth, NJ native who was once featured on Americas Most Wanted for an armed robbery. He recently opened the doors to his label as an insatiable and passionate effort to do things the correct way this time around, and is looking to genuinely help artists get their careers off the ground — primarily New Jersey artists, to help market and create commercial music, even performing management work.

“I’ve been working behind the scenes of the industry. Learning the ropes with everything from paperwork/business work, video editing, filming, online marketing, vocal recording, mixing, mastering and anything else related; and plan on being in full effect by the end of 2018. As Jersey artists, we’re known for sounding like others or sounding like street rappers, and it has never gotten us anywhere. My plans, with help from business-minded people, is to be the “Def Jam of New Jersey,” opening doors for NJ artists who want to sound different and connecting mainstream artists to small indie artists on collaborations.” –KI Back At It

Artist Review: Picasso Redd – “Now Or Never” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

It’s rare to run into an artist that is truly versatile. Combining elements of Rap and R&B with old school elements reminiscent of influential artists like LL Cool J and Bone Thugz N’ Harmony, we get a grasp of a new atmospheric level with Picasso Redd‘s innovative single “Now Or Never.”

Utilizing low-to-mid ranged vocal deliveries that are soothing and subtle, we get an exercise of something memorable, original and multifaceted. What’s great about this track is not overusing the production value. It’s a song that puts Picasso at the forefront and really brings his talent front and center, showing us his identity as an artist without the extra noise.

It could very well pass as the next best love-making track, but shares many other qualities that enhance Now Or Never’s likability factors. The song blends components of several iconic eras, but puts a modernized twist on it. The production value is right where it needs to be and doesn’t try to outdo itself in anyway. The ambience in the song’s overall beat structure really helps bring a vibe and kind of solace that gets you to come back to this song and appreciate it in new ways all over again.

“Now Or Never” is definitely a track that entices you to delve deeper into Picasso‘s catalogue, and keep up with what he has up his sleeve. This is a must-listen for any music fan looking for something fresh and raw, yet still yearning for that familiarity you’ve always loved. This song delivers you just that, and so much more. You won’t regret giving this song a listen. It’ll definitely end up on your 2018 favorites list.

Artist Review: K-Styles – “Hydration” EP

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

When taking a close listen to K-Styles on his new EP release Hydration, you can’t help but think that he is more living proof that underground Hip Hop is where the magic is truly made.

Emerging from indie label Solid Grind Entertainment, K-Styles delivers us some street heat with this 3-track banger doused with integrated vocal structures and versatile rhyming techniques. The beats quiver with ambience, the flow is elevated throughout, and in the end we encompass an artist that truly delves into his artistic realm and holds nothing back.

Starting it off right with opening track “Countin'” dives us into the perfect demonstration of K-Styles‘ signature sound and overall craft. His vocal execution over a subtle beat is so much more evident and crisp as opposed to the sounding of alarms we get in a lot of mainstream tracks nowadays. This is bringing back that old school flavor we all fell in love with and bringing it to new heights with a modernized sensibility; making it an appropriate song for any Hip Hop fan, especially those looking for something more authentic.

His anchor single from the EP “Wet (feat. Birdy Bird & Stony Tony)” is definitely the highlight. This song puts catchiness on a whole new level with two feature artists complimenting this track beautifully with each verse. Solidified with a chorus that refuses to leave your head, this track substantiates the perfect amount of energy to keep you on the move, or chill out to a feel good draft. Either way, the three voices on this track really bring it together and is undeniable with its multifaceted lyrical content.

Closing it out with another feel good banger, the track “Coolin'” cools us right off with the perfect resolution to what was started. By the time you get here, you’ll capture the artistic merit that makes K-Styles as relevant as he is, and makes you realize that artists like him are not around every corner. In the age where one could produce an album on their smartphone, you get no sense of that at all. This is a true lyricist that did it right, and didn’t succumb to fratty antics just to get some music out on social media. You can hear loud and clear that this artist truly has the gift of lyricism, the passion for the music, and the hustle for true Hip Hop

Take yourself over to your favorite digital music platform and pick up Hydration. You’ll be glad we sent you there.
