Nice To Meet Ya: Meet LuhDave

Written By Contraband$

An artist of this caliber is sometimes shard to find! Literally a needle in a haystack. To appreciate the woman is to appreciate the essence of life’s beauty and all it has to offer. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. LuhDave is the beholder and a genre of his own, from spitting bars to making the ladies quiver with his baritone vocals. The St. Louis based artist is ready to showcase his talents more focused and determined as ever as he’s picked up the mic and hung up his NFL envisioned cleats. Here’s to determination! Let’s propel him forward. Check him out here first, at the source, and home of hip-hop.

As we hear the lyrics to the single ” Nice To Meet Ya” we can hear the admiration of what the woman embodies and carries. The woman is the most valuable thing on this planet. LuhDave poetically serenades what’s to be appreciated as he encounters a woman worth appreciating with a twist of Afro- Latin sound. He emphasizes her features and womanhood!

@Swiftisraelofficial is doing way more than “Staying Alive”.

Swift Israel

Central Illinois native, Swift Israel has been making major moves within the recording industry over the past several months. Using his creativity to create “Rael mixes” to some of today’s hottest songs have sparked interest in the burgeoning artist’s career. Taking on songs like Mooski’s “Trackstar”, Future’s “Puffin’ On Zooties” & his tribute to fallen rapper, Nipsey Hussle on “Long Live Nipsey Hussle”  have given Swift a solid foundation on which to build.

Gaining further understanding of what it takes to build a brand within the music industry has allowed Swift to use his online platform to propel himself to the forefront of the music scene, and connecting with Authentic Empire CEO, Booman lead to a distribution deal with the company.
