Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Corey Latif has released a 23 track album of some of his leaked songs.

He has written hit songs like “Deserve U More” and “Teach Me” for Musiq Soulchild, “Damage” for Chris Brown and most recently ” Gone Already” by Faith Evans. I was actually gonna list my favorite songs of this cd but midway through I realized every song is amazing. Download Corey’s new CD and you be the judge. K.R.T.

KRT Gentleman is a segment where I highlight three different things; my styling, the photographer & a talented King or group of Kings.  My definition of a King is a gentleman who is highly respected in his field, carries himself with the utmost dignity and holds a preeminent position among his peers. Bringing together talented individuals and highlighting their endeavors helps spread the unity and further the Kings Rule Together mission.

This month’s talent consist of three gentleman who are making a name for themselves in more ways then one.

I like when someone gives me the creative freedom during work and trusts that the finished product will look exactly how they wanted it to, if not better. With the help of Aaron of Babyloncartel.com we were able to style two characters (Kevin Moore as Mike & Neil Carr as Sinclair) in the exact look director Kash Goins was going for in his hit stage play “Single, Black Female” at the Dupont Theater in Wilmington, Delaware.

The play is a love story… adapted from the movie Love Jones. Single, Black Female discusses relationship dynamics between black men and women. With the help of a stellar cast and amazing vocalists they had two sold out shows.

Other cast consists of  Lauren Shaye as Renee, Kiki Shepard of Apollo Theater fame as Ebony, Alissa Murray as Sidney, Nashawn Kearse of Desperate Housewives as Rodney, Catya Washington, International Songstress Carol Riddick and Dinina Richardson as Tiffany and John Canada Terrel (Five Heartbeats) as Uncle Lawrence.

GoKash Productions next production will be in the Washington D.C. area for the debut of the Award Winning play “VI Degrees” for 2 shows as part of The D.C. Black Theatre Festival on 6/17 at 8pm and 6/18 at 9:30pm. This show will star Tray “Poot” Chaney from HBO’s highly acclaimed television drama “The Wire”.
