Over the years TRACE SOUND EMPIRE (TSE) has been the backbone of music in B.L, there are artist like STREAKMODE, CLAIN SNOW, 96 WENNY, DRA, but you can’t underestimate what TSE has achieve as group.
To have a better understanding of this article I have to take you back to 2017 and 2018.
They are a magnificent group but as individuals, their work rate is poor, with the number of artist under TSE at least, 15 singles should be dropping yearly not if my redder is malfunctioning, they haven’t dropped double digit of singles in a year, I wondered what their excuse would be but you can’t tell me the problem is of in-house producer LEMXY, he is one of the best producer in J-town and his work speaks for him, Skitter might have produced the beat, but LEMXY made ADELEKE by TIMZY MANI a hit, the hype surrounding ADELEKE was so massive and elevated TIMZY to a whole new level, if their producer is responsible for such an amazing production it makes me wonder what exactly is wrong with TSE artists?
Last year LEXA-B dropped tracks that were not produce by TSE in house producer LEMXY and guess what? None of which clicked or hit the height of years passed, does she have a problem with LEMXY? Are there issues behind the scene? Why go out screaming that you are hungry when you have food in your house? Over the years.
SLIMBLAZE has been proving why he is TSE biggest act, an artist who will like to remain anonymous believes that if u take away SLIM, TSE will crumble under dead weight, whether or not that is true, it is still left unseen but with singles like ZAWO, KILLER were he featured LEXA-B, it is hard to argue with this assessment.
His recent single TWERK it goes a long way to stake the claim that SLIMBLAZE is TSE.
RED ROOT have been making serious move this year, GAME OVER has already dropped, and CLAIM will be hitting the street soon, it doesn’t stop there, his moves are not only musically, being the CEO means one of his eye has to be on taking the LABEL forward and recent news hitting me is that he is planning to “clean house” get rid of the artists that are not bringing anything to table, am still wondering which artist will make the cut but am sure there will be a few surprises.
The plan to bring in new artist is a perfect one and I hope the CEO gets it right because TSE can’t afford to get anything wrong again.
Personaly I will like to see LEMXY work with a serious singer, what do you think?
The saying “one man island” best describe JACKz, am all for being flexible and exploring but he needs to focus and locate his bearing since his debut album RACHIE BABY, big things were expected of him but so far he is yet to back that up, with the exception of KABAN CLAN listening from way back JACKz dropped BL first none gospel album, it was half decent and very encouraging when you consider the BARS dropped in the album, the only problem was the after math and the fact that we were supposed to buy it on C. D. even if it is late for JACKZ and TSE, it is not late for JACKZ, he just has to make a few right moves.
Before joining the Nigeria army FOM-P and RED-ROOT were crew partners and amazing things were happening.
Personally, for me I don’t think giving up music for Nigeria army can ever be worth it, but leaving was a massive advantage for TSE, his contribution behind the scene have been nothing short of extraordinary, RED-ROOT has been a solo act since FOM-P walked away.
So the question is, is this the end of their partnership?
Once upon a time RKB left TSE, story story he is back.
If the management decides to let him go, will that episode count against him? Considering RED-ROOT is about to drop his second of the year Single and SLIMBLAZE already heated us with TWERK IT, its been a very mute year for the self-proclaimed softboi and leave’s one to wonder if there are problem behind the scene, but if singles like Journey to Eko proves any thing, it is that RKB shouldn’t be written off yet but that is left for TSE management to decide…
