Listen to Joe Ryan III’s Empowering Mixtape ‘3rd Service’


Rising singer/producer Joe Ryan III offers inspiration on his latest project, 3rd Service. The 14-track mixtape was produced by Ryan, with contributions from Nelson Johnson and Rodd King.

“For me, 3rd service is my way of being myself and presenting my faith at the church steps instead of behind the pulpit,” Ryan tells Rated R&B. “I’m still growing. I’m still imperfect as the next person but it doesn’t make my or other’s faith invalid in this modern day walk. It’s basically purpose over perfection, removing the assumption that being Christian means being perfect.”

3rd Service is the follow-up to Ryan’s independently released album, 1879.  Ryan is currently prepping for his major label single debut, which is slated to drop later this spring.

Listen to Tone Stith’s New Project ‘Can We Talk’

We asked for more music and Tone Stith has delivered. The emerging R&B singer has released a new mixtape titled Can We Talk. 

On the ten-track project, the Jersey-bred artist explores love in a multitude of ways: by going on a “Date” (and refraining from cell phone use during the date); giving his special lady some much needed attention on “Birthday at Midnight”; and even denouncing childish games on “Running Out.”

The project also includes previously released The Prblm Slurs-Produced banger “Get It Right,” which has already racked up an impressive 45,000+ plays in a month’s time on Soundcloud. See the rest of the track listing below:

Stith is currently signed to Young Empire Music Group. CEO of YEMG Jas Prince, who’s credited for aiding in the discovery of worldwide superstar Drake, said in an interview with Forbes that Stith reminds him “of Michael [Jackson], Quincy [Jones] and [the singer] Prince, all in one.”

You can catch the emerging singer on tour as one of the opening acts for August Alsina’s “Don’t Matter Tour” later this month, with dates running through the beginning of September. But for now, stream Tone Stith’s “Can We Talk” mixtape below.

Listen to Keke Palmer and Jane Handcock’s Joint Mixtape ‘Keyana Nikole’

You should always expect the unexpected when it comes to Keke Palmer. The actress and singer has just released some new music with up and coming artist Jane Handcock in a collaborative mixtape titled Keyana Nikole. Featuring production from JRD and Tasha Catour, the five-track EP is described by Handcock as “the most spontaneous project I’ve ever created.”

Keke wrote this message on her Instagram page about the mixtape:

Whether you are deployed in the army, away from home studying abroad, away filming a tv show or a movie, hell even in jail or juvi 😂 #NotFunnyButAVeryPossible thing. When you are not busy with the task at hand, you can become susceptible to culture shock, or loneliness amongst a bunch of other things. BUT, the amazing thing about down time, or undistracted alone time in an unfamiliar surrounding is you are left to ruminate on your thoughts/experiences(which can be daunting) but at your will, a great motivator to create. Writing makes me feel love, I am constantly creating because it is part of my peace. I was so happy when my girl @handcockjay came to visit me in Berlin, we both kill time the same way … thus @keyananikole was born. Everything happens for a reason 🌟

Keke has been keeping quite this busy this summer. In between filming for her new role on Epix’s thrilling series Berlin Station, she recently released the video to her single “Wind Up!” featuring rap star Quavo. She also began her “Vibe Dance Series,” which is her latest YouTube series breaking down choreography to some of the music from her discography. New episodes air every Wednesday at

For now, check out the new mixtape below on SoundCloud.
