Singing and rapping with the same fiery force, YFN Lucci represents the next evolution of the Atlanta sound. Inking a deal with TIG Records in 2014, he quietly developed into one of his city’s most powerful voices. Following the success of Wish Me Well, he unleashed Wish Me Well 2 in 2016. It yielded the platinum-certified smash “Key to the Streets” [feat. Migos & Trouble], which amassed over 43.2 million Spotify streams, turned up a high-profile remix with Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Quavo, and landed on XXL’s “50 Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2016” and Vibe’s “The 60 Best Songs of 2016” list. Forbes proclaimed YFN Lucci among “5 Breakout Hip-Hop Artists to Watch This Summer” and Billboard dubbed him one of the “Top 10 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2017”—he’s lived up to those claims with his EP Long Live Nut, which spawned the hit single “Everyday We Lit,” and album Ray Ray From Summer Hill [TIG Records / Warner Records].

EVE TALKS GETS CANDID ABOUT RUFF RYDERS, MARRIAGE AND NEW MUSIC

Posted on 15 July 2019 by Dale

Grammy Award-winning hip-hop star, actress and CBS Daytime host of The Talk, Eve, has sat down with Luc Belaire CEO Brett Berish in a rare interview for part of the French wine brand’s Self Made Tastes Better video series. In the 30 minute interview the First Lady of Rap shares her journey from Philly girl to the global music stage. Eve recalls her first tastes of success was signing with Dr Dre and appearing on the Bulworth soundtrack as Eve of Destruction. The moment was short lived and she was dropped eight months later, but Eve found opportunity knocking once more with a battle rap for Rough Ryders, which would ultimately lead to her music icon status. Recalling hearing her first song on the radio, Eve recollects, “it was a stop-drop remix from Rough Ryders…It came on Hot97. That’s the craziest feeling.” That would be the first of many radio plays as her solo music career took off.  International fame beckoned with the 2001 album release Scorpion, and its first single, “Who’s That Girl.” The second single, “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” (with Gwen Stefani and produced by Dr. Dre), cemented her pop success, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. The song won a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, and Eve eventually went platinum. The First Lady of Rap is set to reclaim her title with new music in the works: “I started recording last year in London…I’ve been inspired by Afro Beats and Reggae and the hip hop that I hear there. So there’s a lot of that in it.”   The influence of London in her work is no surprise as the city is now where Eve calls home, since marrying Gumball 3000 super car rally founder and CEO Maximillion Cooper. Eve’s interview follows Gumball’s 21st birthday rally from Mykonos to Ibiza. Belaire has been supporting the extravagant event since 2017, helping stars like UK rap artist Giggs, American R&B singer Usher, Trinidadian DJ Jillionaire and American rapper Bun B celebrate their journey.

The Roots – How I Got Over

The Roots- How I Got Over

Posted on 16 April 2011 by breez

by Rachel Chesbrough

The Roots have accomplished what few (if any) other groups have over their tenure on the music scene. They have successfully blended authentic hip hop with countless outside genres, crossed cultural barriers with ease, and maintained an unarguably impressive level of quality while doing so. I mean damn, they’re even the house-band for a late night talk show. They do just about everything but conform. Their much anticipated latest album “How I Got Over” not only won’t disappoint, it will, I swear, exceed your already high expectations. The album is seamless. There are no song breaks, only a constant flow of one or many instruments, and you probably won’t even notice the skip from one track to the next. It’s a musical stream of consciousness. They leave behind the more hard-hitting beats and frenzied rhymes of their last album in favor of a jazz, funk, and soul-infused flava and mellow verbal flow. Black Thought’s lyricism and wordplay is impressive at worst, epic at best. The content is still rooted in urban struggle and elevated consciousness, but it has an optimism that their recent work was lacking. He’s still one of the most underrated emcees in the game. Period. The band is at their best, headed, as always, by the unstoppable ?uestlove. At times the raps will take a back seat to the fullness of the instrumentals, and then the band will tone it down to support the lyricism. It’s a flawless harmony. 5 points, 5 mics, 5 blunts, I BOSS IT!, HIGO gets all of it. This is the album of the year, EASY. It’s how hip hop was meant to evolve.
