Meet Justin McKinney his stage name is KnauTical MiLes which means the steps he has taken or have conquer in his life.
He is from Benton Harbor Michigan but relocated to Orlando Florida. He started off getting into music at the age of 13 at first he would study lyrics and re sight them to himself to get a better understanding of it, he started writing his own rhymes later at 15 that’s where he started to learn how to put together 16 bars,
But he always admired the great rappers like 2pac, Jay-z, Biggie, Big L, Pun, Nas.   Thru the years he has had to reinvent  his style for him to be more original to the point that he wanted to give the listener 100%.

5 Pointz “Whitewash” Documentary

Posted by: Scott

 

During the early hours of November 19th, 2013, 5Pointz, a New York City landmark whose walls prominently displayed countless pieces of sanctioned street art, was hastily painted over on the orders of the building’s long-time owner as the first step in a process to develop the space into luxury condominiums. Now on the anniversary of the November 19th “whitewash,” a short subject documentary entitled We Don’t Need More Rats Here is available on-line for public viewing.
“Rats” documents the 5Pointz artists’ efforts to save the building before it was painted over and gives viewers a last look through the eyes of independent filmmaker, P.J. Monsanto, at what 5Pointz represented and how it fit into the City’s street art history and culture.

The Global Spin Awards has become the Premier DJ Award & Ceremony. From its commencement, November 19th, 2012, The GSAs have been classified as the Quality Standard of DJ Recognition by music industry executives and tastemakers.
The Global Spin Awards (GSAs) were created to award and honor the world’s most dynamic and talented DJs for their contribution to the culture of music and entertainment: past, present and future.
