Mike D’Angelo is taking the DMV by storm. He is a thriving Hip-Hop artist pushing the limits as a community leader and activist and lyrical MC. He recently won “Breakout Artist of the Year,” at the DMV’s Annual Titan Awards, where the winner is based off of a voting system. Mike also recently held a benefit concert for the family of James Anthony Smith, a local teenager killed in SE, Washington, DC over a pair of Jordans, that his mother bought him as an early Christmas present.
Back in August, Dre Black had the pleasure of spending some time with Mike, where they went back to Mike’s childhood neighborhood located in Edgewood NE, Washington, DC. From there they went on what was supposed to be a 15 min interview to a 4 hour day of great footage of Mike in his element.
Watch the he first segment “Humble Beginnings” below:

Dre Black gears up to release his latest single, “Love You Better.” The cover art depicts a vintage photo of an old LIFE Magazine photo with the infamous Bonnie and Clyde on the cover, placed in between a couple sitting in a diner. The photo represents what Dre sings in his song; ride or die love. Dre has been in the studio crafting his upcoming EP which is expected to drop sometime in 2018.
“Love You Better,” produced by ProjectGeniusCreationz see’s Dre explore his Caribbean roots with a perfectly crafted riddim beat intermixed with a soulful delivery.
Take a listen to a snippet of the song:
Evelyn Braxton, the mother of Tamar Braxton and the rest of the Braxton clan opened up on the Atlanta show “Sister’s Circle.” Ms. Braxton recalled a time when she heard a bunch of loud noise coming from the kitchen while she was living in LA with the couple. She stated that she ran in the kitchen to find Vince being physically abusive towards Tamar. She stated that when she intervened Vince got aggressive with her as well. Ms. Braxton said she ran back to her room, where baby Logan was at the time and put a chair against the door for her and Logan’s safety.
Vince has yet to deny Ms. Braxton claims and earlier this month she reported to TMZ similar accusations. Ms. Braxton stated that it is time to bring more awareness to domestic violence as women and men are being abused and even killed. Domestic violence is very real and almost taboo to talk about because no one wants to get involved in personal relationships. However, we must take a stand somewhere and support those women and men who are affected daily. Most victims are blindsided by what they think is love and can’t see themselves without the person who is abusing them. Most times children are involved, it can be financial reasons or a number of reasons why a person stays. If you are a victim or feel that someone you know may be a victim call the National Domestic Violence Hotline for your local office and seek resources, assistance and most importantly help.
