“Johnstown’s Own” Chris DeVille is back on the scene with a powerful visual that captures the epidemic that many of America’s communities are facing. As the war on drugs continues in our neighborhoods, the Pennsylvania emcee sheds light on the issue and once again proves that he is more than music.
“Somewhere there’s a mother that wishes she had done more,” said DeVille. “Somewhere there’s a person who is controlled by a disease and just wants their life back. I want this song to be a comforting touch on the shoulder of a grieving mother, or reflection from a mirror that provides the strength for someone to get their life back.”
The new track by DeVille is titled “Save Me” and features fellow Pennsylvania emcee Wes Penn and R&B songstress Kim King. The gripping visual was shot by Jason Inde and is sure to gain the attention of many.

Western Pennsylvania emcee Jay La’Mont is a young man with a very wise mentality. The 20 year old rapper knows that it is going to take more than just some clever bars to take him to the next level. The Johnstown native is working hard to not only create great music, but to build his Genius Society movement as well. Jay recently dropped his Before The Genius EP which was well received. Below you can watch a video to one of the standout tracks from the EP, “Stay Positive.”
Jay is known for his trippy lyrics and positive vibes, but many don’t realize that he is also the guy behind many of the beats that he is dropping 16’s on. His Kanye West like talents have already placed him in a lane of his own. With that being said, it is not a real shocker that Kanye is one of Jay’s musical influences. However, Jay La’Mont’s musical influences are very broad, which is another great example of why his music does not fit in any particular niche. His wide-ranging influences include artists like Kanye West, Travis Scott, Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Snoop Dogg, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles. You can also catch him on any given day vibing to the sounds of George Clinton, Prince, and Eric Clapton. “I’m into music period. All of it is incorporated into my music,” said Jay. “It’s hard to really define my sound because it is so diverse.”
The Before The Genius EP is definitely an eargasm waiting to happen. The 12-track EP features production by Jay and it includes dope tracks like “Fly Away,” “Said And Done,” and “Open Your Mind.”
“I wanted to create music that would reflect the brand,” said Jay, “Before The Genius is the beginning of our story, from there I am going to continue to build on this. Soon I’ll be dropping the next chapters to the story.” “This is going to be crazy, almost like a movie.”
