UTA REPS CHANCE THE RAPPER

UTA has announced its representation of Chance the Rapper in all areas and for worldwide bookings outside the US and Canada. UTA will work with Chance across his entire business, focusing on global touring, brand partnerships, acting, producing, licensing and synchronization, speaking engagements, books, charity work and more.


One of the leading voices in the pop culture landscape, Chance is a rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, producer, philanthropist and activist. Most recently, he released his highly anticipated debut studio album The Big Day in July 2019. The record launched at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, marking his highest-charting album to date. Three singles from the album, “Hot Shower” featuring MadeinTYO & DaBaby, “All Day Long” featuring John Legend, and “Do You Remember” featuring Death Cab for Cutie, all broke into the Billboard Top 100 singles chart. With his three new hits, Chance has charted 12 Hot 100 singles throughout his career.


Prior to The Big Day, Chance won three Grammy awards in 2017 for his third mixtape Coloring Book, including “Best Rap Album,” “Best New Artist” and “Best Rap Performance” for his single “No Problem.” The mixtape made history as the first time a streaming-only record won a Grammy. In the same year, he became the first unsigned artist to ever host and perform on Saturday Night Live. Chance first broke into the music industry in 2012 with his debut mixtape 10 Day and gained mainstream recognition in 2013 with the Acid Rap mixtape.

Throughout his career, he has collaborated with a diverse range of artists including Childish Gambino, Nicki Minaj, Erykah Badu, Justin Bieber, Megan Thee Stallion, Action Bronson, Madonna and Shawn Mendes, among others.


A celebrated arena and festival headliner, Chance has toplined Lollapalooza (Chicago and South America), Life is Beautiful, Sasquatch, LoveBox, and Summer Sonic. In 2016, Chance also produced his own festival Magnificent Coloring Day in his native Chicago. The sold-out festival, which took place at the White Sox’s Cellular One Field, set an attendance record at the park with over 47,000 attendees. The all-star lineup included performances by Kanye West and Legend as well as Alicia Keys, Common, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Skrillex, Tyler, The Creator, Lil Uzi Vert and Francis and the Lights. Global tour dates for 2020 are forthcoming.


Outside of his musical accomplishments, Chance is a rising player across film and television spaces. He recently voiced a character in the 2019 live-action reboot of The Lion King. Other acting credits include the crime comedy Slice; the Cartoon Network movie Steven Universe: The Movie, which he also executive produced; and several short films. Additionally, he served as an executive producer on the basketball documentary Shot in the Dark alongside NBA superstar Dwayne Wade. Next up, he will serve as a judge and executive producer on the unscripted Netflix series Rhythm + Flow, also starring Cardi B and T.I.

Chance is a humanitarian in his hometown of Chicago. He founded SocialWorks, a charity aiming to create programs to empower and educate youth. Its focus on education, mental health, homelessness, and performing and literary arts directly affects thousands of youth yearly. Chance has donated two million dollars to Chicago Public Schools and mental wellness access, and through SocialWorks has raised over seven million dollars for Chicago’s Youth.

On The Verge of Stardom: Q+A With Rising Female Rapper, Malaynah

You just released your new single ‘Outta My Face’ tell us about the inspiration behind this song.

The inspiration behind my new single ‘Outta My Face’ was my energy and positivity I have within me. I wrote that song to inspire others to have the same energy that I do and surround themselves with that same positivity as well. 

You will be performing at the upcoming Welcome To The West music festival, how do you feel about being the only female rapper in the lineup? 

Being the only female on the Welcome to the West lineup means so much to me. I get to represent all the ladies on this lineup with so many legends. It makes me feel pumped up and ready to show everyone what I bring to the table. 

What are you most excited about for this performance?

I’m most excited to let my fans hear some of my unreleased music I’ll be performing. 

Cardi B reposted your video where you freestyled over her track “Money” and it hit over 12 millions view on her Instagram. What was your initial reaction?

When Cardi B reposted my freestyle video, my initial reaction was “NO F****** WAY.” I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy and proud of myself. That day was just filled with all kinds of emotion. 

We hear you began writing songs when you were 12 and secretly rapped in front of your bathroom mirror. When did you decide to share your talents in public and what made you decide to not keep it a secret anymore?

Performing in front of my family and getting the support I needed to actually put myself out there played a really big role with my decision to start posting my videos on social media platforms. Then when I got the response everyone in my family was telling me I was going to get, it made me just want to keep going. 

What or whom inspired you to start rapping?

What inspired me to start rapping was the reaction I would get when I would perform. When people were listening to what I was saying, and shared that a line I wrote hit home for them. Their reaction was just priceless. So I figured, if I can help people get through something by my words, I want this forever. 

What are you most excited about in your career right now?

Right now, I’m mostly excited about all the new songs and projects that are going to be dropping soon.

Do you have any new upcoming projects in the making?

Yes I have an E.P. that is going to be coming out very soon! 

If you could have one dream dinner guest, who would it be?

If I could go to dinner with ANYONE, I think I would want to sit down with J. Cole.

JASON LEE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

By Armon Hayes

As of late, Jason Lee held a birthday celebration in NYC at the Bryant Park Hotel. His second stop along his birthday tour set to wrap in Miami at LIV. He’s the Founder/CEO of Hollywood Unlocked and its podcast “Uncensored” which is a joint venture with Premiere Network, launching the outlet into syndication within 50 markets. Also, this is in conjunction with iHeart radio and urban contemporary radio stations worldwide. 

360 Magazine had access to the exclusive event. The dimly lit venue set the tone for Lee to take center stage for his birthday speech. Making it clear, he has no plans on playing it safe and “looking forward to getting punched in the face.” Lee was surrounded by love from supporters and close friends like Cardi B. and Wendy Williams. 

DJ Snake “Carte Blanche”

Multi-platinum producer DJ Snake has released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Carte Blanche. Available now via all digital retailers, Carte Blanche includes appearances by such heavy-hitters as Cardi B, Offset, J. Balvin, Sean Paul, and more.

Listen to Carte Blanche by DJ Snake HERE.

Carte Blanche features the double-platinum single “Taki Taki” ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna& Cardi B — the second global #1 record for DJ Snake. After premiering in September, “Taki Taki” became the ninth-fastest music video of all time to amass 100 million views on YouTube. With its video now at over 1.4 billion views, the track also hit #1 on the US Hot Latin Songs chart and #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

With its title translating to “the freedom to do whatever one chooses,” Carte Blanche finds DJ Snake fully embodying that spirit by breaking all musical and creative boundaries. A native of Paris, he names his country’s cultural melting pot — as well as his worldwide travels in recent years — as a key inspiration in bringing the genre-defying sound of Carte Blanche to life. To that end, the artwork for Carte Blanche features images of the iconic Arc De Triomphe (a global symbol of freedom).

In addition to “Taki Taki,” Carte Blanche includes hits like “Enzo” (a collaboration with Sheck Wes, featuring Offset, 21 Savage & Gucci Mane), the India-inspired club smash “Magenta Riddim,” and the bilingual summer anthem “Loco Contigo” (with J. Balvin & Tyga).

Released last month, “Loco Contigo” is accompanied by a wildly colorful video from Colin Tilley (an award-winning filmmaker known for his work with Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj). Check out the “Loco Contigo” video HERE.

DJ SNAKE RELEASES “ENZO”

DJ SNAKE RELEASES NEW TRACK “ENZO” FT. OFFSET, 21 SAVAGE, GUCCI MANE & SHECK WES

DJ Snake has shared his new single “Enzo,” a powerhouse hip-hop anthem featuring Offset, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes. Released via Geffen Records, “Enzo” premiered today as Zane Lowe’s latest World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Listen to “Enzo” by DJ Snake ft. Offset, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes HERE.

Revealing DJ Snake’s deep roots in hip-hop and its enduring influence on his music today, “Enzo” features some of the genre’s most vital artists: Offset (of the platinum-selling, Grammy Award-nominated trio Migos), 21 Savage (whose critically acclaimed 2018 album i am > i was debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200), Gucci Mane (the trap pioneer and founder of 1017 Records), and Sheck Wes (a 20-year-old songwriter/rapper from Harlem known for his triple-platinum breakthrough single “Mo Bamba”). With its menacing beat and undeniable hook, the hard-hitting but hypnotic track also showcases DJ Snake’s boundary-warping ingenuity as a producer.

Last Friday night, DJ Snake teased “Enzo” as part of his explosive set at Coachella Weekend 2. During Weekend 1 of the festival, DJ Snake delivered one of Coachella 2019’s most-talked-about and instantly iconic moments by bringing Cardi B, Ozuna, and Selena Gomez onstage for the first-ever live performance of their massive hit song “Taki Taki.” The second global #1 record for DJ Snake — his first being “Lean On” ft. MØ, a 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer — “Taki Taki” premiered last September, and quickly became the ninth-fastest music video of all time to hit 100 million views on YouTube.

DJ Snake will be in Las Vegas this week for the Latin Billboard Awards, where he has five nominations including Crossover Artist of the Year, Producer of the Year, and Hot Latin Song of the Year for “Taki Taki” (with Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B).

Latinidad in American Festivals

Until recently, urbane Latin music has been scarce in mainstream American music festivals. Thus, the 2019 Coachella latino lineup is a huge deal because it’s the largest and most profitable one on the planet.

In the past, only a few latin artists have performed at the prestigious venue – Cafe Tacvba and The Mars Volta. In 2010, Calle 13 was the first urbano latino artist to hit the stage. In 2018, there were a total of 11 latin artists such as Helado Negro, Ibeyi, Los Angeles Azules, Kali Uchis and Cuco. Fast forward to the present, there’s 17 latin artists slated to perform at this year’s Coachella – a total win for the culture! As we all know, this roster will and has already attracted a much more diverse audience.

As of late, J Balvin brought reggeaton and latin urbano back to the stage. His performance included reggeaton classics like “Oye Mi Canto” by N.O.R.E featuring Nina Sky and “Rakata” by Wisin y Yandel. Bad Bunny took to the stage on April 14th and returns again on the 21st to make a second iconic show. Los Tucanes de Tijuana (popular group from the late 80’s) graced the stage playing “La Chona” and other hits.

Chilean singer, Mon Laferte, has sold over a half of a million albums in Latin America and is also listed on this year’s lineup. Her career began on a singing competition show in Chile, Rojo.

In short, the amount of Latin as well as minority artists added to major festival lineups will continue to develop, namely due to Beyoncé’s Homecoming.
