Lil Baby – My Turn

Lil Baby took to twitter today to reveal the cover art for his highly-anticipated upcoming album My Turn. A beautiful pastoral painting shows Lil Baby atop a cliff, with baby goats all around. He also announces he will be performing his hit single “Woah” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this Monday, January 6.

Lil Baby has been a dominant force in hip-hop since his debut and 2019 was his biggest yet. Last month his largest hit to date “Drip Too Hard” with Gunna was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Performance, marking Baby’s first Grammy nomination. The song also started off the year as the first #1 at urban radio and was also the most played song of 2019 at urban.

He capped off the 2019 with another #1 song at urban with “Baby” by himself and DaBaby. Earlier this year Baby’s solo song “Close Friends” also hit yet another #1, showing his clear dominance throughout year.

Baby’s latest song “Woah” off his upcoming album sparked a viral dance craze on socials and hit #1 on Apple Music within 24 hours, clocking in at over 167 million streams to date and earning over 25 million per week. During its first week it also hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Song Consumption chart, and is currently the #1 Greatest Gainer at urban radio and also the #14 most played track.

All of these successes and more owe to Lil Baby’s incredible career and his 10+ billion global career streams, and Lil Baby is firmly established as one of the most dominant forces in rap.

SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN: ESSENCE.COM OP-ED

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) pens an exclusive op-ed for ESSENCE.com entitled, Closing the School-to-Prison Pipeline for Good. In this piece, she talks about the threat that young students of color face every day, rethinking the approach to public education and public safety and more. She states:

“In the 1990’s, hundreds of police officers were deployed to public schools across the country as a component of the war on drugs and later in response to school shootings. Today, at least fourteen million students attend schools staffed with a police officer — but without a single counselor, social worker, psychologist, or nurse.

The result is that in many cases, an infraction as simple as back talking or skipping class that should end in detention or administrative intervention can end in arrest. Over the years, the implementation of policies from Zero-Tolerance to surveillance to criminalizing lateness and absenteeism have created a system of loopholes that trap our most vulnerable students in a pipeline kept alive by the for-profit prison system. It’s a system that disproportionately hurts black and brown students and undermines their learning…As President, I will work to close the school to prison pipeline, by rethinking our approach to public education and public safety…”

In addition, she reflects on her recently revealed plan to invest $800 billion in public schools and how she would invest “an additional $100 billion in ‘Excellence Grants’—that’s equivalent to $1 million for every public school in the country—to invest in things like after school arts programs and school-based student mentoring programs…” This would be in an overall effort toreduce the impact of systemic racial and economic disadvantage on students.

Young Thug’s Artist, Strick drops The Machine Vol. 1

Young Thug’s artist, Strick released his new project, The Machine, Vol. 1. The 16 tracks has amazing guest features from Young Thug, T-Shyne, HiDoraah, Young Jordan, and Zelly Vibes. Ahead of the project’s release, Strick dropped stunning visuals to the singles, “Vevo” and “Whoa Whoa” which premiered via Hypebeast.

“The Machine Vol 1 is a compilation that embodies my work ethic. I got the nickname The Machine from my cousin, Az, because he noticed I’d make 6-7 songs each recording session and that I recorded everyday without fail. I decided to title a mixtape series after that name and give fans a variety of records that I’ve been working on leading up to my album,” said the rapper.

The Machine is undoubtedly one of the North Carolina’s best releases to date. He rides the elevator to the top of each song’s production with candid lyrics and addictive ad-lids

There is no stopping the now Las Vegas resident, as his first label release, See You When I Land  debuted this past December with powerful guest appearances from Gunna, Young Thug, and Duke.

Strick is a robust and multifaceted recording artist hailing from North Carolina and currently splitting his time between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Best known for honing his skills as a clever wordsmith and adept songwriter, Strick has garnered a reputation for tapping into his diverse professional background both in business and in the U.S. Air Force to elevate both his business acumen and genuine creative output alike.

After relocating to Atlanta in 2012 and founding his own branding agency for aspiring musicians Foundation 86, Strick moved to Los Angeles to pursue his own career as an artist. He then landed his first official placement on Kanye West and Juicy J’s “Ballin’,”leading him to work with artists such as Travis Scott, Jeremih, K. Michelle and Wiz Khalifa. In 2016, Strick earned his first platinum record “coordinate” off Scott’s ​Birds in the TrapSing McKnight ​album, further igniting his hunger to continue developing his skills as a songwriter. That same year, he went on to join Young Thug on several tours, including the Hi-Tunes tour (2016) and the Hi Horse’D tour (2016/2017). Most recently, he was invited to join Young Thug and J. Cole on the ​K.O.D​ tour (2018).

In July 2017, Strick dropped his debut EP, ​Risk=Reward​. In 2018, he released January’sRisk=Reward 2​ and April’s ​Pairadice​, going on to ink a deal with Young Stoner Life Records and 300 Entertainment. He appeared on Young Thug’s 2018 ​Slime Language​ compilation, with their collaboration “STS” going on to be streamed in the millions.
