The Inglewood legend Shade Sheist has signed a deal with New York based Blazetrak – an innovative entertainment company that provides successful musicians, producers, songwriters and choreographers virtual A&R networks online to review the materials of aspiring, upcoming and established entertainers and musicians. Shade, alongside PYO Entertainment International, are currently seeking musicians internationally to sign to worldwide distribution deals. Blazetrak are providing the platform and technology to streamline the star search and together they look to provide a number of opportunities to the dedicated talent seeking them.
Dubcnn asked Shade Sheist how the deal came about earlier today and he explained; “I found out about Blazetrak after DJ Quik signed with them. I discovered that they have opportunities and technology over there that could really expand the PYO network we’ve been building, so I got my referral and was eventually signed after a few meetings. I’m now in the same building as other legends like Teddy Riley and Dark Child, whom also have signed. With Blazetrak I will be able to do something I’ve wanted to do for many years now, that’s to start distributing OTHER artists worldwide. Blazetrak provides me the platform to streamline the reviewing of materials and get to the cream of the crop. DJ Quik is doing the same for his Mad Science label”.
“P.N.L.A: The Exit Strategy” is still due later this year and Shade will also drop “Black Operations” a free EP that although he wants to keep it under wraps. “Black Ops is a project I’ve been working on in secret for a minute. It’s an EP, Street Album or Mixtape depending on the listener. I know folks have been waiting for some new SHEIST for a minute and all my talk about leaving the game has folks trippin out online. I want to release this project as an appetizer for my next album. It’s partially a gift but it feels more like an obligation. I owe it to my fans to drop something new on em. It’s 90′s inspired, of course.. but not necessarily Gangsta Rap shxt.”
