PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO AXS.COM Scorpios are known for their transformation and ability to master just about anything they lay their hands on. For this reason, you tend to see them evolve and become truer to “self” the older and more established they become. In fact, Scorpios are known for putting all their heart, soul and passion into whatever they encounter on their journey to the top. The same is no different for George “Gutta Slim” Hannah, Jr. of West Palm Beach, Florida. Today, AXS sat down with Gutta Slim to get a little more personal on his progress and journey as an independent artist. As a youngster, born in the country town of Pahokee, Hannah lived, ate and breathed baseball. He was an All-Star since the age of 5, mastering his pitch and earning a plethora of MVP trophies, most of his world believed that he would one day go on to play in the majors. But into the excitement of all his wins, he totally lost interest and instead became dedicated to the trumpet, playing all through high school and in the marching band. During his high school years, he became distracted and learned that his true passion was, […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO AXS.COM Honorable and with a style centered around the grown and sexy, Yurb, an emerging artist from Fort Pierce, Fla., is adamant about his contributions to a higher standard of living and the overall morale of society. As he provides the World with his new single, “Slyde,” from his debut album, Grown Folks Music Volume 1, Terrance “Yurb” Yearby is a mirror image of what a true Leo is destined to be. Yurb is a warm-spirited, fierce and confident soul full of ambition and loyalty. His loyalty is to an old way of living, where people actually dated and where courtship and romance are king. Not just a romantic, his dominant inner-Leo shines through aggressively, dominantly and proving his loyalty to the betterment of his kingdom. He met with AXS April 7, to give a little more detail into who he is and where his is going. Growing up in Fort Pierce, he was faced with the challenges of the inner city, as well as the lack of opportunity that comes with living in a country town.

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO AXS.COM “A lot of Sagittarius like music and this is why they become composers, performers or instrument manufacturing specialists,” one website reports about the traits of a Sagittarius.

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED BY AXS.COM Music has and will always be like the oxygen in to the veins society. It is permanently embedded into our DNA… a way for ancestors to carry tradition into the future. It is a way to tell their story. It is a notepad for culture. Music is here to stay. It is detrimental to many lives. It is food to the soul. As saturated as markets have become, being an independent artist isn’t such a bad thing. Sure, being independent may or may not lead to success. It may or may not lead to fame. And, it definitely does not guarantee that you will ever make more money than you would working minimum wage somewhere. But, the ability to be YOU through YOUR own and benefit 100 percent from it… that is priceless. As an independent, you will encounter sacrifice, empty pockets, lack of fulfilling relationships and the need to over-prove yourself to onlookers, just to show your dedication and seriousness to “the game.” It is a tough game, but it is one that you definitely can win. It is a game that will change lives… many lives for the better. It is a dirty game, […]
