Hollywood P and Stax of Apehouse are a duo to be reckoned with. Hailing from Tulsa, a city in the northeastern part Oklahoma; this well oiled machine has set their sights on greatness. Their anthemic single Blessing featuring Mason has sparked a fire that won't burn out anytime soon. They’ve graced some of the biggest stages and performed on the bill with well known artists such as Kirko Bangz, Rich Homie, Webbie, Nipsey, Tink, Scarface, E-40 and KCamp. Signed to Apehouse Music the duo have had a long-standing collaborative working relationship and loyal friendship and that, they say, coupled with their varied talents is the secret to Apehouse. Stax brings raw talent the table with an effortless ability to put words together in every song he puts his hand to. Growing up watching rap battles and hanging in studios fed his natural flair for wordplay and he quickly developed his own sound. Meanwhile, Holywood P attacks every project with passion and authenticity. He, like one of his idols Kanye, rejects following trends and sticking to the status quo. For Hollywood P making music is therapeutic and whilst working in the studio he relies on instinct and his incredible ear for detail. This vibrant, exciting and innovative duo decided to officially give their dream a shot in 2013 and have no intentions of stopping anytime soon.

Students were also able to develop applications for an Android smartwatch, the Toyz Watch, which Wole is developing on campus for his startup, Toyz Electronics.

Studies have shown that most consumers who use certian small cigars,"freak" the cigar in order to have a smooth draw during the smoking process. "Freaking" the cigar is the process of removing the inner binder paper that inhibits a light smooth draw. The paper is glued into the cigar and is often stuck. Thus causing the consumer to become irritated and spend more money for a new cigar or try countless make shift ideas to attempt to remove this inner paper. The idea of making this patent pending product came from running into the problem of a stuck paper inside the cigar. There were many suggestions from other consumers. For example, people have tried using straws, pens, and basically any object that will fit inside the cigar paper itself. Even though these objects in fact fit into the cigar, they are not always successful in the removal of the paper glued and stuck to the inside. All of these products were proven to in fact tear the cigar paper leaving it unusable. So we created The Freak Hook, a simple solution for removing stuck paper.

Power 107.5 DJ Lil Dee Shares her Journey From Tragedy to Triumph By: Eartha Terrell When Columbus Power 107.5 evening “Word-I-Heard” radio host Dee “Lil Dee” Porter steps on the scene, one thing is for sure; her listeners are guaranteed to be entertained. Porter’s DJ style is in-your-face, comedic and flamboyant. She laughs, as she explains that if she isn’t absolutely exhausted from giving her fans her all every time she steps on the mic, then she’s done something wrong. Her dedication to her audience is a reflection of her commitment to her craft, driven by her desire to one day be on a syndicated show. The Louisiana State University alumna lives by a strenuous work ethic. Before working at Power 107, Porter pounded the pavement of Cleveland, Ohio’s streets where she worked tirelessly,determined to make her mark. “I hustled so hard in Cleveland. I lived in a little apartment, but my bills were paid. I took that $11.00 an hour and flipped it to $45,000, and on the days where I only had $12.00 for the week, I had a goal in mind.” With all the confidence she exudes on air, it’s almost hard to believe just years before, Porter was drowning in a sea of low self-esteem, nearly ending her life during a failed suicide attempt. “I took 12 pills and went to sleep. And I was so mad like why am I still alive…I’m from Louisiana, and If you didn’t have long hair and light skin, you weren’t pretty...I grew up feeling worthless.” Where some may have been undertaken by the whole ordeal, Porter took another route. After surviving, she became committed to healing life-long wounds and feelings of inadequacy one positive affirmation at a time. Her journey from brokenness to positivity is what inspired her to create her nonprofit organization, G.I.R.L (Grinding In Real Life), which works to empower young girls and help them reach their full potential. As part of her nonprofit, she’s created #12daysofChristmas where she escorts young girls as they spend a day in the shoes of women in their aspired career. “Sometimes girls think that their idea are far-fetched and are as intrigued as me,” she explains. While her journey has been anything, but perfect, it’s the challenges that she’s faced that have created a contagious passion for life. “I want people to know that my heart was bigger than my mouth, and let little girls know that they can reach for the stars.” Be sure to follow Porter on IG @LILDonAIR, Snapchat @lildonair and Twiter @DeePorter28.
