Playboi Carti’s New Tour

By Alexis Rojas

As of date,  the Atlanta based Hip-Hop artist Playboi Carti kicked off his second performance of his 21-city tour at Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles.

Carti performed many of his biggest hits from his debut album De Lit along with many fan favorites from his Spring 2017 Mixtape titled Playboi Carti, which also includes his most popular up-to-date song, “Magnolia.”

Traveling back down in memory lane, Carti definitely started from the bottom. Growing up in a poverty-stricken Atlanta household, he manages to become one of the most successful music artists in the world.

Much of his success can be accredited to his team as well as A$AP Rocky who serves as his mentor. The two share a bond that only a genuine friendship can relate to. They’re so close that they even like to jokingly roast each other on their Instagrams and you can find it here.

Signed to Interscope Records, Carti first caught their attention with his catchy beats paired with his high energy performance and a brilliant display of pyrotechnics executed with beaming bright lights throughout the production.

Carti’s openers included members of his crew, LB, Drupey Kane, and Sheck Wess. Each performer brought out their best as they showed their individual unique style of music.

Hyping the crowd up was no problem as Carti’s appearance brought screams of excitement from his fans. Songs of his he performed were “Poke it Out” and “R.I.P.” 

To finish everything off, Tyler the Creator made a surprise appearance. With him by Carti’s side, both artists were able to make the concert even more epic.

Demi Lovato’s Overdose

25-year-old American singer, songwriter, and actress, Demi Lovato was found lying unconscious in her home on Tuesday after a suspected overdose. She is currently recovering and receiving treatment at a hospital in LA. Lovato has stated how she has previously had issues dealing with eating disorders, self-harm, addiction, and mental health problems. She had also made a documentary regarding her struggles that affected her daily life along with trying to stay sober, but in June 2018 Lovato released a new song titled Sober in which she sings “I’m not sober anymore.” Her documentary went on explaining how these problems began at a very young age, such as having suicidal thoughts and bulimia when she was only 10 years old, and trying cocaine for the first time when she was 17. Even before starting the hit series on Disney Channel’s “Sonny with a Chance” and “Camp Rock,” she had been a huge target for bullying. There were many struggles and pressures on her as she drove quickly to fame at such a young age. Lovato is currently receiving lots of support from fans and celebrities throughout social media while wishing her a quick recovery.

Legendary Music Producer Rick Hall Dies at 85

Legendary music producer and FAME Studios founder Rick Hall has died at the age of 85. Hall died this morning at his home in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, not far from his world famous recording studio.

The family has issued the following statement:

It is with the deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of our father, husband and beloved grandfather, Rick Hall. His spirit will live on forever through the massive amount of legendary music that he so tirelessly produced. Music was his life and because of him, Fame Studios and Muscle Shoals will always be “shooting for the stars!” We hope the band in Heaven is ready. If not, there’s going to be a problem.

Rick Hall made music history when he founded FAME Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals. Hall went on to earn international fame and eventually a Grammy for Lifetime Achievement. In the days when Martin Luther King Jr. was marching for freedom, Hall proved to be a civil rights pioneer through his music. His open collaboration among black and white artists was a revolutionary cultural standard not only to “deep south” Alabama, but to the nation at large. FAME’s color blind atmosphere, and the raw music it produced, would help shape American culture during its most troubled and tumultuous time.

Considered the “Father of the Muscle Shoals Sound,” Hall helped define a generation by pioneering a new sound that would inspire artists, give birth to new kinds of music and launch the careers of hundreds of superstars, songwriters, musicians and music executives. Record executives literally flocked to Muscle Shoals for Hall to produce and engineer a mind-boggling array of major artists, including Aretha Franklin, Clarence Carter, Mac Davis, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Alabama, Tom Jones, Allman Brothers, The Osmonds, Shenandoah, Wayne Newton, TG Sheppard, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Little Richard, Lou Rawls and so many more. With more than 300 hit singles to his credit, and more than 40 Gold and Platinum records, Hall was one of the top producers of Pop, Rock, R&B and Country records in the world.

Brave by Rose McGowan

“Hello fellow human, pleased to meet you. My name is Rose McGowan and

I am BRAVE. I want you to be too.”


BRAVE
is McGowan’s raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto—a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE.

 

“My life, as you will read, has taken me from one cult to another, the biggest cult of all: Hollywood. BRAVE is the story of how I fought my way out of these cults and reclaimed my life. I want to help you do the same.”

 

Rose McGowan is a writer, director, music artist, former actress, entrepreneur, founder of #ROSEARMY and feminist whistle-blowing badass activist who held lead roles in films such as The Doom Generation, Scream, Jawbreaker, and Planet Terror. She starred on the hit series Charmed from 2001 to 2006. Her directorial debut, Dawn, was nominated for the Short Film Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
