Lazaris The Top Don

Real Name.- Lazaro Rafael Martinez

Artist Name - Lazaris The Top Don 

  The South Bronx is known as the birthplace and spawning ground for many of Hip Hop's artistic pioneers, innovators and trend setters, which is an artistic tradition that continues to this day. One could argue that such artistry is considered "Royalty" amongst peers, audiences and consumers alike. Garnering a respect that would usually be reserved for a type of person that would be categorized as... a "Don”.  

  But there is another chapter to the overall story of the South Bronx that also has its royal and "don-like" lineage. Though not steeped in the Hip Hop tradition, its roots stem from the same urban creative landscape that spawned such artists as Afrika Bambataa, Grandmaster Caz of the Cold Crush Brothers, KRS-ONE, BIG PUN and others. Names such as Eddie Palmieri, Johnny Pacheco, Willie Colon and the most important and significant figure of Afro-Cuban dance music in the 20th Century... ARSENIO RODRIGUEZ, are the legends and musical "dons" who created and innovated their musical traditions to a higher level. All the while honing and furthering their craft as members of the South Bronx community. These figures make up a part of the South Bronx tale that has no ending and, as time goes by, continues to have new pages being written.

  It is from both of these legacies and musical traditions, the culture of "Hip Hop" and what is identified as "Salsa", that a new chapter is being added to the story of the South Bronx. Where "the game" is introducing both a young and uniquely savvy player to the world.

The time for a new South Bronx Hip Hop movement is at hand. It is the time of... The TOP DON.

Born Lazaro Rafael Martinez,  aka Lazaris The Top Don, the family history of this half Cuban, half Boricua artist is legendary and one that is considered a musical dynasty. His grandfather was a highly respected Afro-Cuban percussionist affectionately known as "Kiki" who recorded and performed for many years. His uncles were Raul, another percussionist, and Arsenio, who played both percussion and a 6 stringed guitar known as the Tres. His uncle Arsenio, an internationally famous bandleader who was blind, is regarded as the "Godfather of 'Salsa'" due to his many musical innovations and prolific compositions that have been re-interpreted and re-recorded. Lazaris recently had the privilege of representing the family during a historic street re-naming dedication where the street between Dawson and Intervale in the area of the South Bronx. Lazaris, named after his uncle, also resided in the area. An area that is key to Lazaris’ development as an artist. Another family member, a cousin, who goes by the stage name of "Triple Seis," is a rapper and one time member of Big Puns Full A Clips Crew &  Fat Joe's "Terror Squad".

Lazaris The Top Don is  Puerto Rican & Cuban from The Hunts Point  Section Of The Bronx Where Only The Strong Survive the Fort Apache area of The South Bronx where he still resides to this day. Lazaris Can Rhyme with The Elite Of the Elite  even the top spitters know He is super lyrical Diverse & Very Versatile he has many styles , Flows He Also  Ghost writes  Songs for him self & Others In the music induatry Lazaris Can Rhyme In English & Spanish  He Has a rapid fire freestyle that sounds like he wrote everything from.punchlines witty styles smooth delivery hard core bars & Voice that reminds you Big Pun & Jadakiss Fused in One. sponsored by SVCCESS Clothing NYC by the owner named Guerilla Tone aka Anthony Delgado, Lazaris Owns His Own Label & Publishing company called Top Don Empire ) Is Mentored & Sponsored By Da Inphamaus Amadeus Shade 45 & IGetatems own. Lazaris Is  has his album out now on digital streaming platforms titled Svccess In my path Vol. 1 

Lazaris’ story begins when his mother used to play the music of his uncle Arsenio all throughout his childhood and young teenage years. He was also personally being exposed to local Hip Hop pioneers such as DJ Kool Herc and Kurtis Blow. It was the "beats" provided by these men that helped develop a desire for creative musical expression within Lazaris. It eventually manifested itself via his own freestlye capabilities. At the tender age of 9, Lazaro began to make his way around the local "battling" circuit. This is the ultimate litmus test for any bonafide serious "rapper", as it is a no holds barred musical duel of lyrical improvisation where, after the dust settles, only one person is usually left standing. A scenario Lazaris usually found himself in due to this skill he was successful in mastering.

  After several years of perfecting his craft, Lazaris’ very first endorsement by one of Hip Hop's rising stars came at the age of 16. A mutual acquaintance named Capone Douglas whose known as "Al Capone" invited him to a BBQ/Release Party that was located between Longwood and Beck Street. It was there that Capone introduced Lazaris to the artist known as "Cuban Link”, a founding member of the “Terror Squad”.  Lazaris took the opportunity to freestyle at the BBQ and "Cuban Link" loved what he heard. So much so, that he responded by stating that Lazaris "...was a breath of fresh air in South Bronx Hip Hop.

With a new found boost of confidence and a desire to impact the scene, Lazaris adopted the name he continues to use to this day. "Lazaris The Top Don." This alias was inspired by both the legacy of his uncle Arsenio and other figures, were considered "Dons" of their time. This particular aspect of regarding himself as “The Top Don” stems from a unique desire to unify everyone in the Hip Hop community, something that many who are in the “game” are unwilling or incapable of doing. And not due to any sort of boastful grandeur.

  His talent and ambition would lead him to his first professional performance at the Rhumbas Nightclub, owned by party promoter and music impresario John "Gungie" Rivera, where Lazaris successfully "debuted" his skills and was embraced by the audience at hand.

  This experience would then lead Lazaris to further his artistic inclinations and organize himself properly. He began to ghostwrite for and collaborate with many other independent artists and established his name. Lazaris The Top Don under the auspices of BMI to protect and document his work. Eventually, more performance opportunities would follow. Lazaris Has His Own Imprint Top Don Empire LLC & Publishing 

Lazaris Later Hooked Up With Angel Nieves AKA DJ Executioner. Growing up together, former DJ for bachata greats Aventura, DJ Executioner and Lazaris had a bond as both mentor and friends. DJ Executioner was an ever greater influence to a young Lazaris by keeping him off of the streets and having him focus on his talent, music.  Their love and passion for music lead to an even tighter bond that still carries over to this day.

  In 2008, BOOST MOBILE, a giant in the field of communications technology, sponsored a "rap" competition which Lazaris entered and won. He was awarded 2 tickets to that years’ Summer Jam held in the Bronx. As a result of this, he managed to perform at that particular Summer Jam making even more people aware of his musical prowess.

 The following year, Lazaris would retun to an arena he was most successful and familiar with. Battling other MCs. "The Fight Club" is an underground scene only a select hardcore few are even aware of. Taking place inside of a building in mid town Manhattan, MCs from all over would congregate and face off with one another for bragging rights. During Lazaris’ lyrical 'bout' with another rapper, judges DJ Big Mike Shells and the now legendary rap artist who originally hailed from Detroit, Michigan whose real name was Marshall Mathers, but whom the world knows as "Eminem", where all in attendance to witness Lazaris’ craft.

  To date, he is a “jack of all trades’’ as a writer/composer, performer, entrepreneur, clothing designer and club promoter. He is also branching out into other areas of media such as artist development, fashion , model management and developing his overall brand. Two years worth of collaborations and features with other artists and their projects to bolster his brand and create that 'buzz on the street' has been the strategy he's adhered to. One of his productions is called "Street Famous," which was inspired by his uncle Arsenio who fell in this category and touches on that very strategy. The logic being you can't be 'famous' in the mainstream conciousness unless you're 'street famous' first.

Lazaris currently has a mixtape out titled "Streetz Of The South Bronx Vol 1", which can be heard on www.mixtapeunit.com or on google

The nature of Lazaris The Top Don isn't just to climb the ladder of success until reaching the top. His inclination is to "uplift" others, as he climbs himself. In other words, putting others 'on' who are as hungry and as ambitious to rise in their artistic professions and help guide them. Also, to blaze a trail for them to follow, as many of Lazaris mentors and influences had done for him. He is currently working on his new  Mix tape Album titled 
Svccess In My Path Vol 1.  His New singles  swerve, Cross fire , Street famous & Trappin it up feat moneyboy banxxs has had multiple spins online, DTF Radio, U Stream Hot 97,  Stream,  Sirius XM Shade 45 , Wazzup Latino , 96.5 tampa radio , radiopushers as well and texas Radio and multiple clubs all over the New york city

CHUCKY 73

He was born in the Dominican Republic, but has lived in the Bronx of New York since he was 8 years old, which has not been an obstacle for him to have maintained a close connection with his first language, as demonstrated by the fact that his songs continue to be sung essentially in Spanish or, in any case, in 'Spanglish'.

However, in this case, that is a generalization, because the truth is that the lyrics of Chucky73 (stage name of the young Adel Mejía) use a 'slang' typical of his land of origin that can be particularly difficult to understand for those who do not They are already familiar with this way of speaking, but it has not been an obstacle for their debut album, “De Chamaquito Siempre Cabezu”, to have obtained positive mentions in such important Anglo-Saxon media as The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, The Face , The Fader and Brooklyn & Vegan.SectionsChucky73

“That 'wording' thing was always part of me, and then I began to work on it more and more in my compositions,” the artist told us through a Zoom connection with the city of Miami, where he was developing a new project. “I think that, instead of being a bad thing, it has attracted more attention, because people are interested in trying to understand my expressions, just as I am interested in trying to understand what people from other communities say.”

 

“Cabezu, for example, is a word that represents a spoiled child, who does not pay attention, who gives his mother a lot of headaches,” he explained, before breaking into a smile. “But I’m not like that anymore

deep street essence that is closely linked to trap and, more specifically, to drill, a subgenre that emerged in the south part of Chicago that is characterized by its aggressive messages.

 

“I come from a neighborhood and I'm still in that neighborhood, and a lot of things happen in the neighborhood,” the rapper justified. “From there you get the lyrics to later put them to music. The truth is that I don't know if I will always stay in the neighborhood; “I would like to move to a quieter place, but I will never stop visiting.

Sound Cartagena

When music executives discuss marketing strategies for their artists, they usually place certain artists in
categories based on musical genre, language, and style. An artist is either considered Rap or Rock,
English or Spanish, Street or Club. But it is that same mentality that has caused the industry to lag
behind the trends of fusion within music and the musical tastes of the listeners.

Enter Sound Cartagena, a Brooklyn NuyoRican with the most transcendent music appeal that the
industry has seen in quite some time. He was raised around his father’s passion for Salsa music, so he
was able to master the intricacies of the authentic island music. But he would also roam the urban
streets of Brooklyn, NYC as a youth, and his many experiences gave him a true hip-hop flavor. A rapper
and producer for over a decade, he is also well-versed as a musician: he is able to read and write music,
as well as play the drums, congas, bongos, timbales, and even the trumpet. And Sound is not only a fan
of hip-hop or Latin music…he also serves as the drummer for New York City street-rock band Killa Beatz,
and has had a mohawk for several years. All of these factors make it impossible to categorize Sound
Cartagena as simply a rapper, or even a Latin rapper at that. Sound Cartagena is best categorized as “El
Talentito Musico” (“The Talented Musician”) and is rewriting the rules on what it takes to be a successful
artist in today’s music industry.

 

 

 

 

to the entire

world. Sound Cartagena’s current fanbase is already culturally diverse, and with worldwide appeal his
potential for stardom is endless!

Sound’s presence lights up any room he is in, whether it’s because of his large personality, his high-
energy stage show, or his heavy jewelry. That’s why he is known as “El Nene Bien Brilloso” (“The Shiny
Kid”). He has worked with countless heavyweights in the music industry, and is co-signed by some of
the most major movements in the hip-hop industry including Konvict Muzik/Shakedown/NappyBoy ent (Akon, TPain ,RedCafé, DJ Envy etc.) StreetFamily / SLK Gang (Fabolous, Paul Cain etc.) BadBoy (PDiddy Dirty Money, Making the Band, Havierre Pierre) T-Wayne Tour CashMoney/ YoungMoney , BlackEyePeas Will I am, Maino (HiHater remix Plies , T.I, Mya, Jadakiss, SwissBeats) Gangstar Premeire & Guru & Jodecie Royalty, (3LW) , LostBoyz Mr.Cheeks , GroupHome LiLDap, Raekwon from Wu-tang and the Sapranos on the movie Coalition, BigPun , (Tribute to Pun) (D'Mingo Ramos/CorsoMusic / WhiteLion& Manolo Guatauba University etc.) and much more...

Her exceptional music is typically a blend of reggaeton and some other genre like pop, dancehall, dembow and so on. Her fluency in both English and Spanish languages allows her to drift between the two, creating unpredictable turns and involving a much larger audience.

Then in 2021 she put out her own music, leaving university to pursue her number one passion with more determination. And with such role models like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and Shakira to look up to, Amanda is set to leave her own mark in the industry.

Malo 100

Fernando David Correa, widely known by his stage name MALO 100, is a rising artist, entrepreneur, and public figure. He is from Queens, NYC and has lived throughout various sections in the Queens area, such as Jackson Heights, Corona, Forest Hills, and Jamaica Ave. MALO 100 has a strong Hispanic background, with his mother having roots from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and his father from Guayaquil, Ecuador. 

 

MALO 100 was destined to be a rapper since very young, especially after hearing 50 Cent’s song (“In The Club”) at 9 years old, and having a different sense of appreciation for music. Eventually, music became a huge part of his life, to the point where MALO 100 even asked his father to take him to Big L’s mural in Harlem around 10 years old just to pay homage. As a kid, MALO 100 even saved up money around his 8th birthday to purchase two CD’s; “The Eminem Show” by Eminem and “Livin’ Legend” by B.G.

 

Witnessing some of the grittiest situations occasionally fuels the fire in his music, such as finding out his close friend was stabbed to death by his own baby mother, to recently finding out another friend was sentenced to six years of federal time for supposed weapons. With both of these friends MALO 100 started taking rap serious, and occasionally you will hear them mentioned in MALO 100’s songs simply out of utmost respect. They are also popular Latino artists (Anthony Patria & GB Tribuvelli). 

 

Currently boasting hundreds of thousands of streams via Apple Music, and more than 10K followers on Instagram, it is safe to say that MALO 100 is making his mark in the musical industry. He has quickly amassed a cult following called “MALO Gang”, and some of his followers are so dedicated that they’ve gone to the extremes of tattooing his rapper logo or his real name! 

 

His current project is a 6 track EP released via every platform on January 2023, aptly named “Worldwide Devil”, which is a tribute to his favorite Spanish female artist Bad Gyal, and her throwback mixtape “Worldwide Angel”. Although, the latter is more towards pop/dancehall, MALO 100 brings a diverse range of sound in his EP.

 

Ranging from trigger-happy, chain-smoking verses on the groovy (“I Don’t Mind”), to endlessly catchy drill bars on (“Sweet Dreams”), it is safe to say MALO 100 is familiarizing the rap game with his promising voice, as well as the NYC streets he came from!
