Timely topic behind ‘Shady AF’ illustrates Tahtiana Jade’s timeless qualities

SAN FRANSICO, CA – It’s no secret to Tahtiana Jade’s friends and family that she’s a hopeless romantic. It shows in her life, it shows in her passions, and most of all it shows in her music. She’s put together a young career based off songs that talk about love and relationships in general – and she’s been quite successful with those songs to date. But her newest single, “Shady AF,” is a bit of a departure from what she’s become known for and is somewhat of a statement from her to the world that she has depth behind her words and that her music can motivate others in bigger and broader ways.

The song is a trap/hip-hop influenced pop song that’s upbeat and immediately grabs the attention of anyone who hears the opening bars. It’s a song that she actually initially wrote a few years ago and then put on the shelf, but which she has pulled out because of the recent movements against sexual harassment – such as “Times Up” and “Me Too.”

“It’s a song about a couple of different things, but essentially it’s about women being shady and catty with me,” Tahtiana said. “And it’s about experiences I’ve had in the industry with sexual harassment. It’s a song that ties in really well with what’s going on now and puts a spotlight on some of the shady scenarios I’ve unfortunately been a part of.”
Like most of her other music, “Shady AF” is a song that Tahtiana wrote, produced, played instruments for, sang and recorded all on her own. As such she considers herself to be a female artist who is the “complete package” – one who stands out from other female artists in the industry because of that diverse skill-set. She also said her unique sound and style are different than anything else on the radio right now, though it is a sound that is current and fits with the time and overall landscape of the music industry.

Though she’s hesitant to label her music into one genre, she said if she had to put a word to her music she’d choose the word “Timeless.”

“That’s what I want people to think of my music: that it’s timeless,” she said. “If this single is played in a club now, I think it could still be relevant in five years. It’s talking about scenarios that happen all the time. The beats hit hard. The lyrics are timeless. And that’s ultimately what I want my music to have: a timeless feel to it. And that’s why you can’t really put it in a box.”

Tahtiana said she hopes that the next five years of her career help to establish her as an artist similar to those she has long looked up to – women such as Aaliyah, Lauryn Hill, Rhianna, Beyonce, Adele and Pink … all artists who are “women who stand for female empowerment and make really good music.”

“Shady AF” is currently available across all digital distribution sites and will be the first single off an upcoming EP, which she hopes to release this summer. To listen to Tahtiana Jade’s music, or to follow her on social media, please visit:








Hip Hop artist Daygo Smoove joined the Podcast show and talked about his latest project "Concrete Rose" and much more. Check out what he said about the new single, future music, touring, and the history of hip hop!   Listen BELOW


SAN DIEGO, CA – When Kenny Whiteside was growing up in San Diego, California, it was a regular occurrence for his mother to play music around the house. She would play reggae and calypso so often that he often knew the lyrics backwards and forwards.

A few years later, while living for a time in New York City, he was introduced to the Wu Tang Clan and The Fugees. When he heard the song “Bring the Pain,” he knew he wanted to rap. And shortly after that, while watching music videos from artists like Jay Z and Master P, he started to dream about what it would be like to create music at a level so extraordinary that one day he would take the stage to receive awards.

“I wanted to own my own label and tour the world while making good music that people would live with,” he said. “I would watch those awards shows and see myself winning a Best New Artist or Best Album award when they would call the names. And today my confidence is what drives me to do this professionally. Many people may try to knock you off your pivot when
you’re on your way – or even after you’ve achieved success. But I just stay humble, like K Dot says.”

Today Whiteside is known as DaygoSmoove – a name he adapted as homage to his hometown of San Diego and his unique sound and style. A self-proclaimed ambassador for the city often referred to as “Daygo,” Smoove wants to put together a career that he used to dream about as a young boy. And with each new song, EP and album, he gets once step closer to realizing that dream.

His latest project is a single called “Concrete Rose.” It’s the first song off a new album that he hopes to release in the first half of 2018. The name of the song was inspired from the poem “The Rose That Grew From Concrete” by Tupac Shakur. Smoove said Tupac is his favorite artist, and he tries to model his work ethic after the hip-hop legend’s. This song, for instance, is the result of many hours of hard work and craftsmanship.

“it’s about wanting things and knowing you’re not in a position to get them,” Smoove said of the single. “It’s about working through the setbacks that come with that – the lost time and money and resources and whatever you sacrifice to get what it is you want to manifest in the physical. It’s about making a way out of situations in which there seems to be no way out. I think it’s a chill record and definitely something to ride to.”

Featured on the single is Southern California artist Lorine Chia, who lends her vocal talents on the hook and is rapidly shooting through the industry with projections to be one of hip-hop’s hottest new vocalists. Smoove said he was fortunate to be able to collaborate with her, and is doubly glad to have been part of a process that he said harkens back to the golden years of hiphop.

“I respect hip-hop,” he said. “My respect for the ones who paved the way for me means I gotta do my duty when I’m called upon. When some of the artists I look up to drop a project, it makes me want to go into the studio and write or just go off the dome. I feel like I’m good enough to stand with those guys. I know the game is hurting for lyricism, and the void can’t just be filled by Kendrick or J Cole or Joyner Lucas. We need a vast amount of talented cats who can get busy on the mic. I want to be part of the movement of new hip-hop artists who help bridge that gap.”

Hip Hop Recording Artist C Wells stopped by the show and talked about his new release "Big Worm Of Apple City" .  The Houstonian Rapper has a lot going on, including heading up his own record label "Five Pointer Production" a label that assists young African Americans who aspire to make their musical careers a reality. We also jump into the world of politics and current affairs, which is always a fun topic. We also talk in depth about some of Hip Hop's pioneers and elite level legends.  Have a listen BELOW ‘Boss’ of Apple City brings fun, upbeat album with ‘Big Worm of Apple City’

HOUSTON, TX – If you know nothing else about C. Wells, he hopes you remember one thing: he is first and foremost a community and business leader. And how he leads, more often than not, is through inspiring others through his music.

In 2011, C. Wells and his right hand man founded Five Pointer Production, an independent music label that aims to help young African Americans in Houston who have dreams of making it big in the music industry. C. Wells said his work with the company has helped establish a solid reputation throughout the city, and it’s one that he’s very proud of.

“I’m an all-around, 100 percent true boss and street legend who did this shit on his own terms,” he said. “I had to go to the military at age 17 and I came back at 21 and took over the scene. Making incredible music is just a plus. For years I have been consistently releasing records and holding it down for my culture.”

On March 9, C. Wells will be releasing his most recent project, a 19-song album called “Big Worm of Apple City.” He calls the project a “once-in-a-lifetime experience of riding around town with C. Wells.” The sound and style is different from song-to-song, but the overall vibe is a peek into the day-to-day life of a fun-loving individual.

“It’s upbeat,” C. Wells said. “It’s party. It’s fun. It’s dance. It’s singing. It’s all of that. It’s just a fun album with good lyrical content. I really focused on the feelings and experiences for the people. Everybody out here already knows me and knows what I do, so they’ll know that this theme fits what I am out here. It fits the idea of me being a boss. I’m a community leader and a business leader, and what’s what I’m known for around here.”

The first single from the album is a song called “Hands of a Dealer.” It’s a club song that C. Wells said everybody will love to dance to. The song is about a person trying to make music and trying to focus, but he gets preoccupied by different things in his life. He said the song is one that anyone can relate to because we all get distracted by different things in life and problems or situations that come along.

“It’s about trying to stay focused on one path,” he said. “It’s about learning how to juggle problems while staying consistent. But more than that it’s all about making sure you can dance and move. We forget that in a lot of music today, but that’s really what good music is about. You can have a message and good content, but what good is that if there’s no feeling in the music?”

Dr. Jared Espley (NASA) stopped by the BradCooney.com Podcast and updated us on the JUNO mission to Jupiter. The spacecraft arrived back in July and is currently in orbit exploring and sending back data. The mission hopes to find out if the planet has a rocky core down below the gasses that make up most of the planet. It also recently gave us our first look at the planet's polar region.


Additionally, Dr. Espley also gave us an update on a recent discovery on Jupiter's moon Europa. The Hubble telescope has discovered what appear to be huge water plumes that are streaming into space from beneath the moons icy surface. If so, this would make a future mission to the moon much easier to detect whether or not there is life there. The moon is said to have a large ocean beneath the surface. If this is true, and you mix in geological activity, possibly volcanic, then you must begin to think about life as a real possibility. Check out what Dr. Espley had to say BELOW
