Moise Bently’s (think “noise” with an “m”) came to me by referral. That was the first unique thing about this interview. The second? Most of the rappers I am put in contact with are from Utah and don’t really have a polished, international aura about them like Bently. Even though he hasn’t done much press, he presented himself as a polished professional and came with a high recommendation from one of Utah’s most heralded rap artists and battle emcees, Emerson Kennedy (aka EMRSN or EK).
In this interview, we introduce Moise to the People’s Podshow audience and discuss everything from philanthropy, to cars, to fashion, to his native land, the Ivory Coast. I have a feeling that Moise won’t be making any slow-paced, introspective, politically-charged songs any time soon. For now, his modus operandi seems to be making club hits and radio anthems in an attempt to gain an audience before he gets into the studio to make a full-fledged entry to his discography. Whatever the future holds for Bently, don’t expect excuses and complacency to be a part of his day-to-day operation. “It’s all about hard work…” he says.

You’ve heard of scary games like Ouija Boards or Bloody Mary that are supposed to contact the other side, but did you know that there’s actually many of these rituals out there?
Some based in history, some come from the dark corners of the internet, but all of them sound scary as hell!
From the infamous Elevator Game to the murderous Midnight Man, a game fit for Three Kings, homemade mirror boxes and something called The Bed of Sorrow, all of them are a big bag of nope.
So join us this week as we read the instruction booklets of some of the Internet’s darkest games!
V.O. Sensei and Shado of the Muzic Clan/Free Nation stopped by our West Valley recording home on Sunday, December 11th to share what they’ve been up to. Besides the new single and video for Elevate, recording new music and performing at shows, we talk about sports and the artists they keep an ear to the internet for like Isaiah Rashad, SZA, Kendrick Lamar and fellow clan member MPH.
They’ve got a show at Urban Lounge for SLUG Localized and a basketball camp for the youth at the Boys & Girls Club in Glendale on the 30th of December on the horizon under the moniker of Level Up Hoops. With their creativity, exuberance, and work ethic it’s hard to see the Muzic Clan slowing down soon. The question is, will you be a part of the movement or will you get left behind?

Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks! When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41. Or maybe she didn’t. In August of 1892, a woman in Fall River, Massachusetts named Lizzie Borden was charged with the brutal murder of her father and stepmother, a crime that she was not only found Not Guilty of, but one that captivated the nation with its mysteries and questions, all of which still remain today.
Join us this week as we chop up the infamous case of the Lizzie Borden.
