Opening in September, the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts will become a go-to source for live entertainment in San Antonio. With three state-of-the-art performance spaces and performances ranging from opera to dance, symphony to rock/pop concerts, the Tobin is planning something for everyone!
GSM: Over 390,000 listens, it's featured on WSHH and still there is hate. What do you have to say to the haters and what do you have to say to the supporters?
TWI: No response to the haters, too many obstacles and goals to be accomplished... Look at the numbers, people are enjoying the music... #WSHH was a great experience for the critics, good and bad... San Antonio has a different sound in Texas, just as well as Houston, Dallas, Port Arthur, Corpus Christy & Austin... Some similarity in sound developing, just a more lyrical & metaphorical state takes place in certain citie's sound. But, it's all "Texas" Music. World Star Hip Hop has also, has brought me more out of town shows and exposure... Different labels, A&Rs, producers & other artist have reached out... Magazine companies, internet media site, Dj's and etc... S/O 2 the people that support & sharing the music with the world. Be on the lookout for "The Arm & Hammer Mixtape" (All Original) dropping 2/27/14. Contact / Booking Info: TWIGUTTA (210) 584-4384

Tha1Radio breaking more boundaries than any other internet radio station in San Antonio. Miss Neka leads the way yet again, and this time she is giving back bigger and better than ever before! Tha1Radio vowed to help 50 families with The Ella Austin Foundation, and already they have raised $1,000.00, collected many many toys (but they still need more), and built massive awareness by taking the opportunity to be interviewd live on San Antonio Living and KABB Fox29 in October!! #Tha1 has been around for two years, has 12 live DJ's, do live remotes, supports the community, and without being a faith-based radio station.... they share faith and hope every day on-air and in person.

Peace Judah Priest!!
GSM: First of all congrats on becoming General... beautiful! And didn't I read you saying that you are officially signed now, tell me about this!
JP: Yes you read that right, I am officially signed to Protect Your Neck Records & I am a member of Buddha Monks New Group Zu Bullies.
GSM: The new album "Legend of Sleepy Hollow Pt 2" was mixed by DJ Flipcyide from El Paso Texas, how did you two meet?
JP: Well as you know DJ Flipcyide is a well known DJ who always drops the best mix tapes. He had did some work with a Wu-tang brother of mine Solomon Childs, they dropped the “A Legend Stuck In Shaolin” Mix tape. One day he asked me what I was up to I said just putting the mix tape together he said “send it” I did just that and that’s all she wrote.
GSM: What can we expect from this album and what do you want people to hear in your music?
JP: U can expect straight heat. Not only For the Die Wu Fans But for everybody.
GSM: Do you think you have a signature sound?
JP: My signature sound I would say is a mixture of classic Wu sound and tha the rugged street sound.
GSM: How do you feel about the current trend and direction of hip hop?
JP: I don’t like it, its exactly what you said a trend. What is being called Hip Hop today is not Hip Hop its Rap.
GSM: Hip Hop and Rap. Are the two interchangeable?
JP: Hip Hop was and is those artists who put substance and a message in their music, those who took time to actually say something in their music. Example KRS1, Nas, Rakim , Public Enemy, Wu-Tang Clan, Mos Def Common. Rap, is artist who music has no substance or meaning who music only brags about how many bitches they fucking, how much money they have how many cars they drove, how many times they been shot or locked up etc etc etc. (Lil Wayne, Nikki Minaj, Rick Ross, Wocka Flocka, 2 Chains) etc etc etc. Not hatin on them artist but this is my thought.
GSM: What kind of music did your parents grow up on and was music an everyday thing at your house?
JP: My parents grew up on Rick James, Tina Marie, Tina Turner Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and many other greats. Music was definitely an everyday thing in my house, my father was a club dj & my father was a singer. Guess that’s where I get it from
Do you prefer originality over conformity, even if it won't make you as much money?
JP: Yes I believe in originality, that’s the best way to go. That way you really put your heart and soul into your music. Conformity means you’re just going to be a gimmick. I wonder how long that gimmick is going to work
Do you believe in music therapy.
JP: yes I do. Music definitely sets your mood for all situations. If you trying to be romantic with your lady Throw on that Luther Vandros or that Teddy P, If you just want to relax while u in the house or going for that long drive throw on some smooth jazz, and if you angry as fuck and want to get buck on somebody throw on some N.W.A or Ice T. LMAO and if you working out throw on some lil John.
PRIEST - by way of - MONK. Buddah Monk that is!!
GSM: How old were you two when you started singing together for fun and when
did your parents recognize that the two of you had something special musically
MIDT: When we were young not really sure of the age probably 8 or 9. Our
parents noticed probably around 15.
GSM: What has been the biggest challenge for the two of you?
MIDT: To be as GREAT of a performer as the mainstream artists currently in the
GSM: Do you think being a twin act helps or hinders your career?
MIDT: We believe it helps, because we believe people have never seen a twin
duo act main stream that sings, raps and dances all in one show.
GSM: When and where, in your opinion, was your best performance at?
MIDT: Not sure, we just try to give our all in all of our performances.
GSM: Right now you are #5 on Reverbnation... how many albums do you have out and what are you working on right now?
MIDT: We are currently getting ready to drop our Singles while finishing up our album.

GSM: Where/what studio do you record at?
MIDT: At Zzyzx Recording Studio in Round Rock, Tx
GSM: Do you have a particular producer you prefer?
MIDT: No, we just like good tracks. If we hear tracks from different producers that are great, we would love to work with them. Currently, we are working with a great producer out of Germany named Martin Stephan.
GSM: "Can I" is lovely, was there a special person or moment that song was written for?
MIDT: LoL, no not really. "Can I" was written for all the women out there that want a man to come up to them in a respectful way to talk. Also, to just let women know that there are men out there that do exactly what the song says.
GSM: Who does most of the writing?
MIDT: I (Smooth) do.
GSM: When choosing beats, is it a struggle because there are two of you, or because you are twins, is the beat selection process easier?
MIDT: When we select a beat or track, we both listen to it by ourselves. After we have finished, we select which ones we like. Then we get together to see which ones we agree on.
GSM: What do you have planned for the summer?
MIDT: Studio, performances and Hopefully a tour lol.
To GOD, our family and friends. An a Special one to all of our FANS and everyone who has helped and supported us along the way. You know who you are.

Congratulations Charles Peters!!
His first published academic essay. It was judged by
professors at Arkansas Univ. and won 3rd place
last year. Now over 700 students on his campus
at KSU are using this essay and other winning essays to improve their writing skills in their Eng 1101 sections.
It was about five years ago when I first met DJ John Wayne, now known to all of San Antonio as Wayne's Wings. A mutual friend brought him by my pad for some balcony time (if you know, then you know) and I instantly fell in love with that face, that warm smile and his energy. We talked about business, and I discovered what he really wanted to do was not to DJ anymore... what he wanted more than anything was to buy a mobile truck of some kind and cook for the masses. He had a dream, he had goals and he had most everything mapped out. What he didn't know was what the final result would look like, but he knew with prayer and God's divine wisdom, all would be revealed. And revealed it was!
Wayne's Wings is celebrating their 3rd Year in business and we couldn't be happier for him. Dwayne, you have worked so hard and sacrificed much to achieve your dream, and I am so proud of you my friend. LONG LIVE WAYNE'S WINGS!!

Plus I can give my fans in S,A. something to rep Hip Hop wise, besides just the spurs!

Kyle Lee: I never heard anything about it until tha other day when I invited Avar to be in the ACB, which he is now apart of, and we support O.P.T.T.O. as well. Just because you're a Alamo City Boy doesn't mean you have to stop whatever else your doin.
