It’s been a while since we did a #BDW post, but we are excited to bring you something fresh. Chicago based duo Lite Company recently dropped a new single entitled “All Gone”. The banger features Chris Searcy on the hook and will be included on their upcoming album “Power Lines”. I know it’s uncommon that we feature a gospel act on TheMaxxOut, but good is good and God is God. Lite Company manages to maintain an actual groove on the record and deliver a meaningful message. The Euro-hood vibe of the track has a very unique sonic quality and serves as the perfect court for TSO and God’s Vision to pass back and forth the benefits of surrendering your worries to God. “Power Lines” will be available on iTunes and Google Play August 26th but you can #MaxxOut the single “All Gone” HERE!!!! Enjoy!!!!

Peppaboy Trill McCoy has been buzzing much of the summer on the heels of his infectious single “She’s the One” featuring Bobby V. The current din the song is causing has sent the Gulf Coast artist back to the studio to begin crafting The Face Card, his next full length LP. And he proves once and for all that when it comes to the hand you’re dealt, it’s all about execution.
“I’m a give people the whole game,” he states about The Face Card. “You get a variety of music that transcends genres.” The Cola Coast representative is eager to put Pensacola City and the Gulf Coast sound on the map. It’s original flavor man,” he assures. Peppaboy is no stranger to hard works and plans to keep building. “I been independent since I launched my company in 2009.” And Cola Coast Entertainment has gone on to establish itself as a heavily influential lifestyle brand since then, touch projects in music, film, and television. New awareness of his brand can definitely be attributed to “She’s the One”. And as he explains, it wasn’t a complicated creation. “I got the record and laced the track. I knew it was a hit when I heard it.” And the Atlanta based crooner Bobby V. did an excellent job adding texture to the song. He just dropped the D. Haines directed video for the banger.
The Face Card will feature production from in house producer The Gumbo Kooker, as well as Boston based team The Breaks, and a few others. And Peppaboy’s excitement hasn’t waned. “I just look forward to exporting the Gulf Coast sound to the people.” And music fans around the nation are ready for some new flavor.

"Everyday I’m hustling" isn’t just a rap lyric in the entertainment lifestyle. It is an absolute mantra. And few at this point are getting their hustle on like Bossman Chino. Aside from killing Atlanta with a slew of performances in some of the hottest spots, Bossman is dropping not one, not two, but three projects on us 4th of July Weekend. And he recently told us all about them.
"To show how much we really been working." The only necessary answer when asked about his three projects. The album How I’m Feeling, and two mixtapes, Bossman Status and Trap Bosses (collab with Trapp God) are all pieces of the same man. Of the album, he explains, “I freestyled everything. So, it’s based off how I’m feeling.” According to him, this opus will represent more real life situations everyone can relate to; life, love, and the like. He gushes a little over Bossman Status. ”I’m Bossman Chino & everything I’m talking about is some boss shit,” he laughs. ”Everything I say [on here], you can hashtag that shit.” Trap Bosses represents a long time collective of work between Trapp God and Chino.
No stranger to the stage, his recent work brought him to the attention of Kevin Gates, who invited Chino to Indiana for an opening performance. ”It was one of the best experiences I’ve had as a performer,” he shares. “It was the first time somebody asked for my autograph…..and was for real.” And now, Bossman Chino is ready to chart new territory while charting. And Atlanta is behind him 100 percent.

“Going through everything I went through street wise,” Peze explains the inspiration for Pain for Glory was simple enough. The back story, however, is where it gets complex. “I never knew my mom,” he offers [she passed when he was nine months]. “My father was never really around.” While most from urban areas can relate to the absence of a father, it is unusual for one’s mother not to being the picture. “It left a big hole,” he recalls. And that hole led Peze down a wayward path. But, after a few brushes with the law, Peze gathered himself together and set a new direction for himself.
“Everybody wants to do better,” he says of himself and his crew. “I still deal with the same friends.” Though he admits certain temptations remain, the music is enough to keep him focused. He has management company Projex Society behind him. And his friends are actually being very supportive. “Everybody kinda goin with the flow,” he assures. And this new path is certainly leading to more promising opportunity. Peze recently got a chance to perform with Dirty South legend Bone Crusher. “Man, it was crazy!” he exclaims. “Sittin in the same vehicle; the same VIP; sharing the stage. I was just very honored. I’ve come from a long way.” And, he knows the journey is only just beginning.
Pain for Glory, hosted by DJ Smallz, reminds us that for every hurtful thing, there will be glory for it at the end. It is a story of strength and endurance. At the end of the day, Peze is confident in the final product. “Everything is really 100%. I gave you me.” He even opted to use all original beats for his mixtape, working with five different producers. And Pain for Glory is nothing less than stellar. Tale after tale, he gives us a direct line to the hood from the eyes of a man changing. “You can smile and love when you goin’ through your pain.” And that ability to live and love through the pain is what makes Peze a champion.
