Let us bring you up to speed in case you haven't been active. It's been a crazy couple of years but despite the recent hardships, the past 24 months have been full of progress and growth for AB Dvinci and the team collectively known as "Take Money Productions" (TMP).
When TMP founder, Droopy M., was trying to figure out what was next for the uncertain future of his label, he didn't foresee there would be so much evolution and so many milestones being reached. In late 2019, just as things were picking up momentum, the label lost two of their core artists, delaying the promotion and roll out of a TMP compilation album. But rather than succumbing to the loss and the pressure of carrying the label on their back, AB Dvinci and Droopy M. did what they do best and used the down time from the pandemic quarantine of 2020 to write and create quality music at an impressive and efficient pace. To say the least, it proved to be a prolific year for the two Texas artists. AB Dvinci delivered a compelling, well-received body of work with "The Manifesto Vol. 2" , that contained the stand out tracks "Belly" and "A Better Way (feat. T-Ress)". Droopy M. shocked the internet and FM radio waves alike with his hit single "#Fuego" featuring his partner-in-rhyme, AB Dvinci and none other than the iconic, award-winning DJ Kane of the legendary group the "Kumbia Kings". "#Fuego" managed to generate enough buzz in the region to gain spins and get on rotation on notable FM radio stations such as Corpus Christi's Hot Z95, Ft. Worths' 97.9 The Beat and Dallas' KNON 89.3 .
After a successful promotional run consisting of some successful show dates including SXSW, radio interviews, and podcast appearances, the small TMP regime was able to garner the attention of other local artists looking for a place to call home and a haven to create music. In 2021 Take Money Productions recruited the gritty, underground lyricist known as P.O.I.N.T. and released his official debut, solo project, "Whole City Sleeping", on all digital platforms. The project is currently doing well on Spotify and P.O.I.N.T. is receiving praise from his peers for his long awaited contribution to the hip-hop landscape. Another addition to the Take Money family is newcomer, K3vin Davis. Although Davis is relatively new to the game, he possesses a soulful flow and and a knack for crafting heart-felt, street records. His current single "Risk it All" featuring Justin Case of the legendary Dope House Store is available on all digital platforms.
TMP has since opened up for Z-RO, Ying-Yang Twins, and MC Magic. Currently, AB Dvinci is promoting his two new singles, the infectious and feel-good record "Just for the Weekend" (feat. Droopy M. & T-Ress) and the hard-hitting "So Far" (feat. Emakulate). Both records are off the "Perseverance Ep" and are currently being played on Corpus Christi's number one hip-hop station, Hot Z95 as well as other internet radio stations throughout Texas. Droopy M. just released his follow up to "#Fuego" entitled "Testify" featuring his ever-loyal comrade in rap, AB Dvinci. The soulful, boom-bap production of the record takes Droopy back to the concrete and his roots as his unique, southern drawl paints the picture of the recent trials and tribulations he's overcome proving furthermore why he can't be grouped with anything less than the realest. All of these current releases are available on Apple Music, Spotify, and all digital platforms.
