YFL KELVIN FEATURED IN DEF JAM’S UNDISPUTED COMPILATION, OUT MARCH 8TH

READ “HOW DEF JAM PLANS TO RECLAIM ITS HIP-HOP CROWN” ON BILLBOARD.COM

“Cleveland is on the map in a big way… YFL Kelvin is certainly in the conversation of one of the most refined sound behind his ability to channel his come-up story.”

“YFL Kelvin is an Cleveland based emcee who has been battling adversities his whole life but his musical talent is about to change everything for him.”

ABOUT YFL KELVIN

For YFL Kelvin, hip-hop is the soundtrack to his struggle. “My story is rags to riches,” the 21-year-old explains. The Cleveland native has found solace in music since his father was gunned down—in an accidental shooting—when he was just five. Kelvin began recording out of his home studio, but music was secondary to the lure of the streets, taking his rap name from his biological father and the aspirational acronym “Young, Flashy, Lifestyle.”  

The street life landed him behind bars on three occasions, “My little brother is in jail. Like, everybody who I used to be with is in jail.” No matter the tribulation, it doubled as a sonic inspiration. In 2016, his beef with a former friend sparked his first major release, “Mayweather Freestyle.” “I knew I was destined then. Something good was going to play out from all the tragedy that I’ve been through.”

2018’s “NASDAQ” would be the rocket that’d catapult Kelvin beyond Cleveland, released on YouTube the hit song has generated over 300k views. The remix with Moneybagg Yo will lead Kelvin’s first project, Out of Here.

UNSTOPPABLE

“There’s a moment in your bones when the fire takes over,” declares LA rock band The Score–Eddie Anthony and Edan Dover – in their triumphant anthem, “Unstoppable”. Partnering with the Jeep brand for a newly-minted campaign, The Score proves that while life has a million trails, you were built for all of them.

Watch the Jeep Dial  | Grand Cherokee spot HERE, and the Jeep Dial | Compass spot HERE.

Unstoppable”is about the belief that nothing can stand in your way,” says Anthony. Dover continues, “And just turning that dial up until you break through to the other side.”

Generating over 45 million cumulative streams to date, “Unstoppable” can be found on the band’s full-length debut, ATLAS [Republic Records]—available now.

This spring, The Score support Echosmith on the Inside A Dream tour across North America. It kicks off April 4 at Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, CA, rolls through major markets coast to coast, and wraps up at The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, CA on May 12. Check out the full itinerary below.

Tickets are on sale now.

In 2015, The Score unleashed their debut Where Do You Run EP to critical reception – with 26 million Spotify streams and counting. Not only did they gain the attention of BBC Radio in the UK, but activated a dedicated fan base who propelled them into a worldwide deal with Republic Records. The band returned in 2016 with the Unstoppable EP, notching 30 million Spotify streams from their fans, and in 2017 with the Myths & Legends EP with 27 million streams to date. Their songs have been motivating fans worldwide who discover the band through the likes of the NBA, movies such as Power Rangers and Pitch Perfect 3, as well as major brands such as Jeep. Culminating in ATLAS (Deluxe) in 2017, it all adds up to The Score’s album being streamed over 110 million times on Spotify and counting. Along the way, they would earn acclaim from Billboard, Nylon, Diffuser, and more in addition to landing critical placements in film and TV.

Be More Kind

Frank Turner releases the title track from his forthcoming seventh studio album Be More Kind available on May 4th via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor UK /Interscope Records. Listen to “Be More Kind” HERE. The album is available for pre-order HEREand those who pre-order will receive instant downloads of “Be More Kind” as well as the previously released tracks “1933” and “There She Is” from the 2017 release Songbook.

Of the track, Turner says, “‘Be More Kind’, the song, is at the heart of the album, both lyrically and musically; when I finished it, I could see the rest of the album coming back together around it.”
Be More Kind represents a thematic and sonic line in the sand for the 36-year-old. It’s a record that combines universal anthems with raw emotion and the political and the personal, with the intricate folk and punk roar trademarks of Turner’s sound imbued with new, bold experimental shades. Be More Kind is produced by Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block, formerly of psychedelic-rock Texans White Denim, and Florence And The Machine and Halsey collaborator Charlie Hugall. “I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different,” says Turner.

The Be More Kind World Tour will head to North America on April 5, with its first leg playing to over 200,000 people across the UK, the USA, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, taking them through to Christmas. Two Boston shows – July 1 and 2 – were added today. Turner promises that 2019 will include visits to some “slightly more weird and wonderful places.”

Rae Sremmurd

Today marks the premiere of “T’d Up,” the newest song from hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd. Released via Eardruma Records/Interscope Records, and produced by Swae Lee, Metro Boomin and Darrel Jackson pka Boomanati DJ, “T’d Up” will be featured by ESPN in their NBA campaign to promote the hotly anticipated match up between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics on February 11, when LeBron James goes to Kyrie Irving’s house to see if he can tip the scales in the Cavs favor.

Listen to “T’d Up” HEREHERE

“T’d Up” will feature on Rae Sremmurd’s (Mississippi-bred brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi) upcoming third full-length,SR3MM. Made with their longtime producer Mike WiLL Made-It, SR3MM arrives as the follow-up to SremmLife 2—a 2016 album featuring the multi-platinum No. 1 hit “Black Beatles” (ft. Gucci Mane). SremmLife 2 drew acclaim from the likes of the New York Times, who noted that “the quieter innovation on this album is how, thanks to the more-meditative production, SremmLife 2is at times a commentary on and an updating of decades of Southern club rap.”

Released in 2015, Rae Sremmurd’s first full-length SremmLife debuted at the top of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Rap Albums charts, in addition to cracking the Top 5 on the Top 200 Albums chart its first week. SremmLife also scored Rae Sremmurd five platinum-selling singles, including “No Flex Zone” and “No Type.”

Last August, Rae Sremmurd delivered “Perplexing Pegasus” and its accompanying video. The song was named a Best New Track by Pitchfork, who hailed the duo as “a two-man circus celebrating carefree living to the fullest, back-flipping through verses.”

Machine Gun Kelly × Bloom

MACHINE GUN KELLY RE-RELEASES bloom  PROJECT WITH TWO NEW TRACKS 

Retailhttp://smarturl.it/MGKbloom

EST 19XX/Bad Boy/Interscope recording artist Machine Gun Kelly, returns with a brand new single, “Habits,” available now all digital platforms. The heartfelt boom tune is one of two additional tracks  included on the retooled bloom album which was released today.

It’s been a banner year for the candid Cleveland wordsmith, who unwittingly found himself perched atop the pop charts, with not one but two breakout hits. “Bad Things,” a duet with Camila Cabello, sold 6 million units worldwide and peaked at #4 on Billboard’s Hot 100, while “At My Best” with Hailee Steinfeld, likewise conquered mainstream radio and garnered over 470+ million streams globally.

Originally released this past May, bloom has already been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The reissue boasts two new songs, including “The Break Up” and “Habits.”

In between touring, Machine Gun Kelly has continued his foray into acting with plum roles in the upcoming Sandra Bullock starrer, Bird Box and the Rupert Wyatt-directed sci-fi flick, Captive State. He also teamed up with X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha for the heart-wrenching single, “Home,” from the accompanying soundtrack to Will Smith’s new Netflix action-thriller, Bright.

Kells will close out 2017 in his home town for his Double XXMAS show at the Wolstein Center this evening. This year’s Double XXMAS marks MGK’s first ever headlining arena show.
