On the streets of Kansas City, Missouri, a compelling wave of creativity resonates as faith, family, and music converge. On this fertile ground, Midcoast Entertainment has been blossoming representing the heart and soul of the neighborhood, creating music for the streets and the world.
At its core, Midcoast houses the creative collective known as S.B.L (Same Blood Line). Not merely a group, S.B.L is a diverse blend of artists fluently blending styles to deliver a powerhouse of music.
The Makings of S.B.L
S.B.L represents the combined energies of Vokab Sparks, Young Sal, Popout-JE and Ch-Chi Gabore. Born into a family that has been involved in the Kansas City music scene for generations, Vokab Sparks brings a sultry, metaphorical style to every beat. Using his position as CEO of Midcoast Entertainment, he guides the flagship label from the streets of Kansas City to the world.
Kansas City’s native Young Sal, whose raspy delivery and subtle plotlines dominate each bar of his music, has risen to represent the new G.O.A.T of Kansas City. His collaboration with Popout-JE, Midcoast Entertainment’s youngest prodigy, and Ch-Chi Gabore, a nuanced breed of MC born and raised amid life’s hardest challenges, has evolved into a musical marvel to be reckoned with.
Rising from Challenges
Although S.B.L has faced countless obstacles, including a near-fatal shooting involving Young Sal, resilience has been their guiding philosophy. The group’s staunch patience and behind-the-scenes efforts are now yielding visible results, as they ready themselves for the world stage.
An appreciation, gratitude, and understanding that their journey is a blessing, sets Midcoast Entertainment apart in the music business. They notably celebrate over 1,000,000 streams on their hit Spotify song ‘We Can Do That (My Girlfriend)’. Their mantra, “Hope, Hustle, and Hard Work will get you far”, is a testament to their attitudes and reveals the true strength and spirit they bring to the musical landscape.
The Journey So Far and the Road Ahead
Midcoast Entertainment currently has an air of excitement around it as it gears up for a momentous event – the release of S.B.L’s debut single ‘She Nasty’ and the album ‘Elevated Situations’ on October 20th, 2023. An iconic representation of Kansas City, Midcoast’s vision for the future, driven by the globally resonating skills of Vokab Sparks’ son and musical prodigy, Popout JE, is impressive.
In just a few years, they envision themselves as a dominant force in the music industry, presenting high-quality artistic endeavors for everyone’s entertainment. Their creativity knows no boundaries, and as they Dream Bigger, there’s no doubt that Midcoast Entertainment is making its mark in the music industry, proudly representing Kansas City and offering its music to the world.
