Chicago, IL – Progression Music Group
(PMG), also known as 6PM, is ready to launch a new look, an elevated sound and leave a bigger footprint in the hip-hop world.
“We want to sell refrigerators and open amusement parks.” Says Drew and Chep, Progression’s co-founders. “Not a lot of independent labels see themselves as worldwide brands.”
That vision is exactly what gives 6PM their own lane in indy hip-hop. The idea to have an independent label sparked back in 2008 when friends 6PMDrew, B. CHEP Woods (CHEP!!), Zilla, 6PMDJ and other high school friends and family - members of the former Savage City and Dream Killaz - realized their collective love of music. By 2010, the gang of friends were recording tracks and throwing house parties, both of which garnered local success and exposure under the collaborative name, 6PM. The high demand of the energetic parties helped the group to realize they needed to get organized.
Progression Music Group
is comprised of an array of diverse artist and talents, including Miranda6PM, 6PMHaze, 6PMDJ, Bugsy6PM, Kelli Joy, and Zaquiy - all with their own styles and flavors. Every member provides a strength and an X factor that allows them to see the bigger picture of the entertainment world. By not limiting themselves to one aspect of music or entertainment, PMG also provides promotions, assembles events, and creates apparel, graphic designs, photography and, much more.
With the motto, “Some progress beats no progress,” Progression Music Group
is sure to continue to make waves and solidify their name as one of music’s prominent independent labels especially with a roster that includes imminent star Miranda6PM!
Chicago’s Female Rap Showrunner Continues to Prove Why She’s In Her Own Lane.
Progression Music Group’s (PMG) got a not-so-silent killer on their hands. Miranda6PM, of Jamaican and Belizean decent, is a South Side native who started seeing her rap dreams when she was 15 years old. Her upbeat personality coupled with fast-paced, witty lyrics set her apart from the typically raunchy female-rap persona of the past decade. Though her major influence is Nicki Minaj – having been inspired by her verse on Gucci Mane’s Slumber Party – she is drawn to the vivaciousness and colorful persona of the music icon, mixed with her ability to switch and change flows on any beat.
With femcee’s getting more stake in the game, Miranda6PM is more than ready to prove her right to a piece of the action. She raps over the J. White-produced Bodak Yellow, mirroring some of the original flow but with obvious Chicagoan flare. Her attention and study of production shows through her ability to effortlessly ride the beat and give memorable bars that rival the song’s originator in this replay-worthy freestyle.
