Jack Diamond “Free Love” Ft. YFN Lucci (Video)

Jack Diamond releases visuals for his latest single “Free Love” which features YFN Lucci with production by Kyle Junior.

Diamond delivers a relatable track regardless of gender, culture, and occupation. With images of himself in a coffin, it’s evident the old Jack Diamond is dead.

The new and improved Jack Diamond, however, will make them pay, not by way of violence but through his shine and success…there’s no more free love.

The tones are smooth and soulful yet piercing enough to raise arm harms while Jack Diamond spews his lyrical oath. Watch the video for “Free Love” and get your copy below.

JLC x Judy Drama x Dee Stakz “Welcome to Da Jungle” Video

Texas natives JLC and Judy Drama recruit Melbourne’s Dee Stakz for new single/video titled “Welcome to Da Jungle.” This fierce trio is unstoppable and on the move with nothing to lose. They can survive the jungle in all forms and come out on top of the game. The Cinematic production heightens the raw and gritty lyrics…Connect the dots while they claim their earned respect. Watch the video and get the inside scoop on “Welcome to Da Jungle” below.

MJ:  Before we jump into the video, how did everyone link up, especially with Dee Stakz who resides in Melbourne?

JLC: It basically started from Instagram with Dee Stakz showing love and reached out to me with marketing questions. While I was growing and moving in the scene, I watched him grow as well. I had a track that I wanted a different sound and knew with his character and talent that it would be a hit. He came through with a verse, for the video, and the rest is history!  As far as Judy, I kept her hearing her name in the scene and popping up on social media. I was drawn to her style and sway and the fact that she was also from Texas. We connected, and again the rest is history.

MJ:  What was the goal with this single/video? Let us in on the process from the creative spark to the finale. Is it receiving the proper accolades you were expecting it to? 

JLC: The goal was to provide fans with something they can relate to and show them they can come out as we did and to reach as many as we can! I came up with the idea as I was riding through my old hood in Fort Worth and just thinking how bad it was back in the day. I mean you had to constantly watch your back and watch who you let in your circle and it was people constantly getting robbed and set up. It’s like that now, but back in the 90’s it was three times as bad. As of now it’s nothing but good reviews and it’s just been a couple of weeks, as it spreads, we are looking forward to seeing how different crowds respond.

MJ:  Was it difficult to shoot the video during a heightened period of COVID-19? Why is it important for you to continue to curate during the pandemic? 

JLC: Actually, it was easy. It was kind of an in and out thing when you shoot so many videos you just do your thing and roll out, and I think I can speak on behalf of everybody on that note! I believe it was Dee Stakz’s first video, but you would never know it, he handled business! The pandemic is an opportunity for more exposure as people are watching more TV and have more of an online presence.

MJ:  Talk about the chemistry between the three of you and how individual styles complemented one another.

JLC: Everybody is just down to earth and got jokes so that really makes it easy when everyone has the same goal in mind and takes their careers seriously. Our styles in my opinion with each verse is a different feel and different tone, talking about a different scenario with the same topic, and it makes it both interesting and captivating.

MJ:  Take a minute to share with fans about upcoming solo or more collaborative projects.

JLC: I can’t talk about that…but we have a lot of people watching us and don’t want us, especially me, to go far in the industry. Our ideas are unique, and we must keep them secured until it’s release time.

MJ:  Please take a moment to share anything else fans should be on the lookout for and how they can connect with you for updates and new music. 

JLC: They can go to Amazon and read my E-Book “Hip Hop Marketing A Dirty Game” for some tips on marketing. I have some collaborations in the works and more music endeavors on the way so stay tuned.
