In this interview, Jaleel Wavy sits down with Ay Quez as they discuss his journey as an artist. Quez describes remaining authentic to his music, working with Grammy award-winning producer Boi-1da, celebrating the Toronto Raptor's Championship with Drake, his non-profit Touching Soles, his new brand "MichaeLamont" and much, much more. You can follow @AyQuez on IG.

 Rockford Rap is a website that highlights the booming music scene in the 815 area, as well as teaching artists how to self promote themselves. 

The voice you hear behind the camera is @jaleelwavy, he was brought on to be the face of the site. He is always vocal about supporting Rockford music and with his past experience in the podcasting space, this fit makes sense.

Dax "Joker Returns" (Official Video) Shot by Loganmeis


Dax delivers his second Joker installment, this time with his new video "Joker Returns" shot by Loganmeis. The message Dax delivers here, brings an awareness to bullying and how that can lead to suicide. The Canadian rapper who's profound lyrics, relevant punchlines, and messages in his video's sets Dax apart from many of the newer rappers over the last few years. I've been posting Dax for over a year now, and although I have received some hate mail and text messages from rappers and associates in Los Angeles about this and that when I do, I still decided to post "Joker Returns", follow @ThatsDax on IG.

Fred VanVleet is now Pop Culture !



Well if you have followed the ascend of Fred VanVleet's NBA career at all, you would know that he just signed a 4 year $85 Million contract extension with the Toronto Raptors last week. You would also know that he is undrafted, and that his contract is the largest in the history of NBA for undrafted players. The NBA champion has a storied career worthy of an ESPN documentary, and now that he just got that big big bag, we can now say that Fred VanVleet is certified Pop Culture. In a city where success don't come easy, what Fred has done is unthinkable. The basketball structure and support in his life from his Step-Dad Joe, to his brother/trainer JD Danforth in his family is like a humbled "Rockford" version of LaVar Ball family.   (Rockford people will know what I mean)

Fred VanVleet hails from my hometown of Rockford, Illinois which has a deep culture of basketball, among many other things, but this contract in my opinion, now makes him bigger than Cheap Trick when it comes to the #815. A NBA champion, with multiple endorsements deals, a Toronto fan favorite who is also one of Drake's favorite players, who even refers to Fred as his twin, has defied all odds in the NBA. Fred is a fierce defender, his step back 3 Point accuracy is nothing less than amazing, but it's his big heart and undying passion that has allowed him to be a force on the court his entire basketball career.  Fred's slogan "Bet On Yourself" and his determination to be great has been recognized and is well deserved. 

From the jets to the courts, Fred keeps a team of his Day-1's around him. His childhood friends like Rockford rapper @AyQuez, Jordan from @FlyGuy Films_ , Keffer Simpson @keffersimpson, Airamis @airmaxx_95 and brother Darnell @darnell_lamr, all contribute to Fred's business endeavors reminiscent of the HBO show "Entourage." Fred even has a FVV store in Downtown Rockford that offers exclusive gear and accessories. A new tradition Fred also started was giving away turkeys for Thanksgiving to families in need. This year he donated 700 Turkeys to the Rockford area. There is so much to talk about when it comes to Fred VanVleet, and much more will come up, so check back on 662online.com for more FVV stories and posts. Shout out to Ay Quez for the assist on this article. The video above was posted minutes ago by Yahoo Canada. I found it at 840 Views.

Charlie Brown gets the Holiday "Green Light" from Apple !

 




Apple Purchases Peanuts, Now Control Holiday Traditions Loved By Millions !

Originally I was gonna say that not allowing the American people to watch Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving and Christmas Specials is like fine tuned new school communism. And being that Apple, bought the rights to the "Peanuts" (that sounds funny) that was even more sketchy. So Apple would have been the reason millions of families who have made watching Charlie Brown's holiday specials a tradition since 1965 a no go, unless you had Apple + of course. 

However over 260,000 people who signed a petition to air the Charlie Brown specials, said otherwise. Apple, realizing that "they done F'd up," in the wrong year to take away Charlie Brown, which could of led to a big ass protest in front of the CEO's house, decided to air the Specials on PBS anyway. So thats pretty cool, but I would definitely expect Apple to find out how many of those 260,000 people who signed the petition, have an iPhone, well thats if they don't know already ! Anyway thanks Apple, my family of 8, will be watching the Charlie Brown specials as we quarantine during the Holidays with hot chocolate and N95 masks ! Watch "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Special" trailer above.

"A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" will air Nov. 22nd at 6:30 Central Time on PBS.
"A Charlie Brown Christmas" will air Dec. 13th at 6:30 Central Time on PBS.
