There is one thing that has been lacking on television and for anyone who is a music fanatic they would agree too. In recent years classic shows really showcasing artists and their music has been lacking. Sure there is MTV, but no longer do we see the music videos, the artist interviews, and the live performances like we once did. It was this very reason why DJ Skee decided that it was about time to create a television show that solely focused on the music and artists behind the songs we all love. For those of you not familiar with DJ Skee, he is possibly one of the most influential figures in the music industry creating a wide variety of platforms dedicated to music such as the creation of his own radio app, SKEE247. Skee Live airing every Tuesday on AXS TV finally gives fans what they want. This show has featured everyone from Machine Gun Kelly to Kendrick Lamar with interviews asking the questions YOU want answered. This is a show any true music fan would appreciate.Readmore

Nickygeezy.com caught up with hot new artist Vali while on the set of Skee Live. She talked to us about her new song “Dimes” ft. Wiz Khalifa, and her recently released EP “Paper Charade.” Although she maybe only recently has been grabbing the attention of hip hop fans everywhere, she has been a performer her whole life starting at the tender age of three. She describes her sound as urban pop, and repeating themes in her music are about love, money, and “boys that play games.” Things we can expect from her in the future are new shows, more collaborations, and hot new visuals. Check out her newest music video “Dimes” here. If you want to learn more about Vali you can check out her website.Readmore

After a few days of hyping new visuals for “Tamale,” Tyler, The Creator released the colorful creative visual today. This track is off his Wolf album out now.
The scenes are rather humorous, but what else would we expect from Tyler?! Directed by Tyler himself, he puts himself on a golf course with vibrant colors, giant cats, trampoline on top of booty, and an appearance from Pharell.
