Outed(S4) OOP46: Medino Green - "Clap"
Is it inspiration, or is it imitation that’s created your newest favorite song? The growth of TikTok began in 2017, and became the latest juggernaut used by the music industry to determine what is a hit, or even create them. Artists are having to choose between being original or being viral, and it’s impacting how they create and how we listen. We’re going to talk about Black music in the Tiktok era. Joining us for this show is Queens-bred MC, Medino Green, as we continue to celebrate #Pride2022. Green’s new single “CLAP” is out now! Medino Green Bio: Medino Green, the hip-hop artist from Queens, NY, hit the scene back in 2009. Small in stature but big in his lyrical ability, he is one of a kind, standing at a mere 5’6”. A true product of the 90’s, with his flashy braggadocio, in your face style, Green is inspired by artists such as The Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J, Fabolous, Lil’ Kim, and NAS. He’s remained true to the classic sounds of the era that has inspired him. With his latest mixtape, "inMyBag," Green reminds us why he is unique. The mixtape includes 10 freestyle tracks over familiar beats, including tracks like “Medino Say’s” to “GRN Bomb,” his New York cadence reminds us of where he’s from no matter where he’s at. In addition to the Mixtape, Green also put together a few videos inspired by Rap City’s Big Tigger in the Basement, also another classic moment for hip-hop culture while supporting his fellow queer artist peers by hanging their photos on the wall beside him. These days Green is gearing up for his debut album Mackadocious dropping later this year. The first single out the gate is “CLAP” which is available to stream on all music platforms.

Music blossomed within him as he grew to perform with an award winning group, “the Jazz Singers”, and instilled the dream in him for a solo career. For the past ten years, Canade – his artist name - has performed at open mics, showcases, and talent revues both locally in the greater Atlanta area and NYC. Cultivating his own sound by challenging the norm, Canadecovers deep cuts and obscure nostalgic gems in his sets that most artists would never even think of.

Canade’s brand is a complete package of complexity and sincerity. His sound, a compilation of a wide range of influences, is different than today’s music - not manufactured or copied. Canade is a representation of authenticity and his story of redemption is heartfelt. He uses his platform to uplift others and it vividly paints his relationship with GOD. Compassion, empathy, transparency, and true forgiveness are only a few topics touched by this alien in his music. Rising from the ashes like a phoenix, he’s resilience is captivating and inspiring. He’s ready to walk in his light and nothing will stand in his way.

Ali Steele, singer / songwriter business owner of Ethnic by Ali, and 1/3 of Issa vibe adventures was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. He was subject to bullying for the color of his skin at a very young age. This caused him to write. Mr. Steele became a songwriter at a fairly young age of 14. At that age, he knew he had a gift. He eventually produced a published record. While still working on music in his spare time, he also yearned for more. He grew up in an adverse environment where self-love and pride were not taught. He wasn’t exposed to nature and never missed it. As he got older, he became exposed to different artists and public figures such as Erykah Badu and Dr. Llaila Afrika who helped show himself love and acceptance. He became engulfed in learning African roots and traditions, as well as developing a strong pride for the color of his skin. This newfound love of himself motivated him to start a business called Ethnic by Ali. He chose that title as a celebration of ethnicity, and Ali is his middle name. He also felt as if the name, Ali, meant a lot to his family since it is a shared middle name amongst some of the males in his family. “Ali” means the highest one.

Craig Watutu is a singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY. He developed a passion for music from an early age. He was classically trained from the age of 7, and after graduating from NYU where he majored in psychology and minored in music business and Africana studies, he decided to pursue a career in music. He describes his music as eclectic R&B and soul with a pop appeal, taking elements from various genres of music. His inspirations come anywhere from jazz music in the 1920s and Motown music in the 1960s, to China’s mando-pop and Ghana’s highlife, to the new era of electro and trap music. He cites Sarah Vaughan, Kim Burrell, Frank Ocean, Brandy, Jazmine Sullivan, Lauryn Hill and Beyonce as some of his biggest influences. After a life-altering event and loss, he went on a spiritual quest to find meaning and healing and it led him further into music. He channeled all his energy into writing and has been perfecting his craft under the guidance of Tony Conniff and Jodi Gray, and it’s his hope to bring back the classic sound of R&B and Soul that connects with people. His lyrics are often introspective, emotional, raw and often deal with topics such as love, heartbreak, loss, substance abuse and mental health, all through the eyes of an Asian in America. Apart from his music endeavors, Craig has always been actively involved in his community. From serving on various boards of student organizations at NYU, to his extensive volunteer experience with World Vision, he’s always firmly believed in giving back to the community. During his time in Ghana, he spearheaded a benefit concert for underprivileged youth, as well as worked as a PA for the biggest talent show in Ghana called Stars of the Future.
