Audio : Shows N Shoots
Oakland- “Diva” a debut album by Keldamuzik of Oakland is something to celebrate and for which to be thankful this Thanksgiving Day, if you are a HIP HOP fan. “Diva” has hit the streets and the stores! The 18 track set from this dynamic spitzstress is a “lyrical word play” that screams the female hip-hop artist is alive and well and singing the reality of what’s for real right in the heart of Oakland.
Drawing from “life’s experiences and the work of other writers” Keldamuzik lines up tracks like “Mr. Right,” “Give You a Key,” pumpin’ it with the title track, and “girl power” anthem, “Diva.” The “Diva” album is set to explode with other hot joints like “Bay Swag” featuring Dem Hoodstarz and “Excuse Me” featuring Numskull of the Luniz
With much comfort and ease, Keldamuzik commands the stage. She is a superb mic-smith. Honing her writing since childhood days of writing fairytales to what’s happening for real on the streets, Keldamuzik, 24 has created her stories and sound that make “Diva” music for all.
“Keldamuzik” is just another example of the great talent teeming in Oakland and the Bay Area,” said Jacquie Taliaferro, founder of LaHitz Media, the LaHitz Media Film Series@ Cannes. “This kind of breakout talent can’t be held back.”
Growing up in the Bay and listening to artists like E40, 3 Times Crazy, Mac Dre and the Luniz mixed in with some of her parent’s “back in the day, day” favorites like Heavy D. Prince, TLC and Queen Latifah along with her natural talent and stage presence, Keldamuzik rekindles the flame of female hip-hop artistry to a flaming frenzy while Queen Latifah has moved on to sing pop ballards at the San Francisco Symphony. Not only is “the roof on fire,” Keldamuzik burns the house down with “Diva” and in live performances.
Also, Keldamuzik is featured in the lead single “Squash It!” on the True Vibe Records soon to be released Jazz Funk Hip HoPoetry Phaze 2, with guest hip hop artist D. La Brie and guest vocalist Rufus Wonder. They certainly support the “stop the violence” theme as it addresses the grave problem of violence in America’s urban cities. From early indications, “Squash It!” this seems to be the song that makes S.O.U.L.S. a major player in education music and the song a part of the solution!
“It’s in tribute to people like journalist Chauncey Bailey,” said Keldamuzik. “We’ve got to stop the violence before it stops us,” said Keldamuzik. “Music is just one way to send the message that everyone has value and purpose and life should be respected.”
“The Hardest Working Diva in Show Business,” Keldamuzik founded Golddigga Entertainment in 2005 to release not only her work, but to also operate as a vehicle for other artists. Golddigga Entertainment produces for her hugely popular Diva T.V. hip hop reality show. Audiences see Keldamuzik on over 25 cable stations as she creates her divadom as the entrepreneurial spirited actress, model and hip hop artist shows what it takes to make it in the entertainment industry from scratch.
