Kash Doll “Kitten” ft Lil Wayne

Fresh off a BET Award nomination for “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist,” Detroit rapper and hip-hop starlet Kash Doll releases “Kitten,” her latest banger featuring legendary hip-hop artist Lil Wayne. This follows her groundbreaking mini-movie and song “Hustla,” released last month. “Kitten” has all the necessary elements for a summer smash. Hitmaking producer ISM (Chris Brown, Chief Keef, Ty Dolla $ign) contributed the track while Kash Doll and Lil Wayne more than deliver vocally with bars that are as clever as they are boisterous.

Kash Doll is thrilled to deliver this song to her fans explaining, “’Kitten’ is a fun playful song for summer. Dogs will be dogs but they ain’t getting this kitten.” She continues with excitement that Lil Wayne jumped on the record saying, “Wayne is a rap God, an icon and legend. To be able to have a song with him is more than a dream come true.”

Detroit native Kash Doll has impacted the music industry with a commanding force, dropping street-earned truths with her throwback wordplay and powerful bars. The one-two combination of spirit and sass announced her as fiery female force in 2019 after quietly amassing 30 million-plus on-demand streams, garnering the BMI Social Star Award and “Issa Wave Award” at the BET Social Awards, and inking a deal with Republic Records. An unbelievable story brought her to this point. Losing her dad on just her first birthday, she always held down multiple jobs to support her mom and siblings. And at 18, she started investing in herself eventually opening two beauty bars and funding her own music career. She made waves on the 2014 independent debut mixtape, Keisha Vs. Kash Doll. Following 2016’s Trapped In The Dollhouse, she developed a presence as a touring force and earned coveted co-signs from Drake, Big Sean, Rick Ross, Remy Ma, and many more. The 2018 The Vault mixtape captured #1 on multiple mixtape sites as her debut single for Republic Records “Ice Me Out” and its 2 Chainz-assisted official remix clocked 8 million-plus total streams. Last year, Kash Doll also released a project solely for her fans titled Brat Mail to thank them for all their continued support. The project garnered over 14 million global streams and features the break out single “Check.” Shortly before Brat Mail, Kash released one of her biggest singles to date, “For Everybody,” which racked up over 10 million YouTube/VEVO views independently.

She kicked off 2019 with a bang by supporting Meek Mill on tour. Outside of music, this boss runs Kash Doll Enterprises and does charity work around her hometown. Her city bestowed the “Spirit of Detroit” Award upon her.

Kim Viera “Here For Ya”

KIM VIERA RELEASES NEW SINGLE “HERE FOR YA” TODAY

Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Kim Viera releases her brand new single “Here For Ya” today in both English and Spanglish.

Listen to “Here For Ya”: HERE

The track is powered by a throwback beat and sultry production, building toward a seismic and soaring refrain carried by Kim’s powerhouse voice. The two versions in English and Spanglish speak to her worldwide appeal.

In many ways, Kim Viera was destined to merge cultures in her music. Growing up of Puerto Rican descent in an artist-friendly New York household, her parents both worked in the entertainment industry. Dad launched, owned, and operated a live production company, and Mom could be heard as a backup singer for Willie Colon, Ruben Bladés, and more. Yearly vacations in Puerto Rico represented that balance as the travel mixtape spanned Selena, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, La India, Sia, Brandy, and Whitney Houston. A vocal powerhouse, she made her introduction on viral hits alongside YouTube mega-star Kurt Schneider in between writing for superstars such as Lil Wayne. In 2016, she landed a major label deal with Republic Records and made waves by contributing “Tribe” to the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 3. This anthem quickly clocked 1.8 million Spotify streams. Along the way, she honed her “American Latina” style and set fire with her single “Como” feat. Daddy Yankee. It exploded as an international smash with 40.8 million cumulative streams and counting, while the music video surpassed 24 million views in under a year. Meanwhile, she garnered acclaim from Billboard and NPR who pegged it among “Our Favorite Latin Songs This Week,” upon release, setting the stage for her 2019 anthem “Here For Ya.”

Chanel West’s Debut Music Video

CHANEL WEST COAST DROPS DIRECTORIAL DEBUT MUSIC VIDEO “THE MIDDLE”

Fresh, New Stylized Track Features The Hip Hop Star Showing Off Her Vocal Prowess

Hip Hop artist Chanel West Coast quietly dropped a new music video “The Middle,” her directorial debut, which also shows off her vocal prowess. The fresh, highly stylized track features a unique, vintage aesthetic, presenting an artistic throwback to a beloved golden era.  “The Middle” was shot and edited by Pat Clark. West Coast did her own styling for the piece. Check it out here.

Comments West Coast: “I wanted to make a song that expressed how I was feeling as well as making a song that other people could relate to. I think we all feel stuck in the middle of something at certain points in our life. We all chase dreams and get shut down a lot before those dreams eventually come true. Sometimes in life you just feel stuck in a rut you can’t get out of and that’s basically how I was feeling when I wrote the song. I want people to know that chasing your dreams is not easy and I hope that this song will inspire them to keep going because that’s why I made it. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep going and this song was what told me to never give up.”   

West Coast, who was recently featured on For Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, currently stars on the MTV hit show “Ridiculousness” with Rob Dyrdek, has prolifically been releasing new tracks and content for well over a decade. She started writing and plotting her trajectory much earlier on while still in grade school. Her breakthrough came in 2012 when she was signed by ‘Lil Wayne to his then label Young Money. She quickly released her first track “Karl,” an ode to legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, complemented by a provocative, high fashion music video shot at downtown LA’s iconic Los Angeles Theatre. “Karl” marked the first single from her ‘Now You Know’ mixtape.  At the 2014 BET Awards, West Coast and her Young Money label mates were awarded ‘Best New Group,’ which they collectively accepted on stage.

Following the success of ‘Now You Know,’ she’s released her second mixtape ‘Waves’ featuring the single “I Like New Ft. YG,” and has continued to consistently release new music, often collaborating with name artists.

JMBLYA Festival

ScoreMore Shows is proud to announce the full music lineup for the seventh annual JMBLYA, which will return to Dallas and Austin May 3 and 4, respectively. GA and VIP ticket packages will go on sale this Friday, March 1, at noon CT at www.jmblya.com.

The two-city, two-day fest is set to officially kick off in Dallas on Friday, May 3 with a return to the historic Fair Park near downtown Dallas followed by a stop in Austin on Saturday, May 4 at the award-winning, multi-purpose entertainment facility Circuit of The Americas (COTA). Last year, both locations hosted JMBLYA’s largest crowds to date with 60,000+ total attendees across two days. Parking will once again be complimentary to all attendees at COTA.

In the tradition of years past, JMBLYA will offer festival-goers a stacked lineup filled to the brim with a highly curated selection of today’s hottest and most sought-after hip-hop performers. Grammy Award-nominated multi-platinum rapper/producer and Texas-native Travis Scott will headline the 2019 festival. Scott is arguably one of the the most popular and influential artists of the past year with recent accolades including a performance at the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show and the August release of his third studio album Astroworld, which has since been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and which featured Scott’s first number one song on the US Billboard Hot 100, “Sicko Mode.”

Other notable performers on the lineup include three generations of outstanding emcees from Louisiana, including Grammy Award-winning and oft-labeled “Best Rapper Alive” Lil Wayne, who continues to perform in support of his recently released, long-awaited twelfth studio album, Tha Carter V; hustler-turned-rapper Kevin Gates, who continues to churn out new music following 2018’s Chained to the City and Luca Brasi 3 mixtapes; and one of today’s most exciting up-and-comers, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who continues to perform in support of his debut studio album, Until Death Call My Name, released last spring.

Also set to grace the main stages at JMBLYA 2019 are rappers Gunna and Sheck Wes, both of whom are touring with Travis Scott as part of his nationwide “Astroworld—Wish You Were Here” tour; viral sensation-turned-emcee Bhad Bhabie, who is currently the youngest female rapper ever to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and who continues to tease new music from her yet-to-be-named debut album; and Los Angeles hot act Blueface, whose most recent single, “Thotiana,” continues to gain popularity while making waves on radio stations across the country.

Additional performers include female hip-hop duo City Girls, who are currently signed to Quality Control, the music label home to other rap megastars like Migos, Cardi B, and Lil Yachty; Houston’s own Maxo Kream, who just released his long-awaited debut album, Punken, this past January; and rising Filipino-American artist P-Lo, who might be most known for founding the hip hop record production collective HBK Gang and who released his sophomore studio album, PRIME, this past July. Two aspiring Texas-based emcees, WhooKilledKenny from Austin and 10k.caash from Dallas, help to round out the 2019 lineup.

The VIP options this year include Pinky Ring VIP ($179), which will provide a variety of amenities, including a premium viewing area at both stages, access to a private lounge with dedicated bar, and various VIP-only food trucks, expedited festival entry through a VIP-only entrance, dedicated merch tent, and private air-conditioned trailer bathrooms.  Other VIP perks offered include complimentary massages, barbers and a beauty bar, as well as IV Vitamin Treatments from Drip Drive, free cell phone charging stations and perks like lawn games, access to lockers, and more.

Gator Boots VIP ($249) features all of the previously listed Pinky Ring amenities, plus exclusive JMBLYA merch, including a clear backpack, hoodie, hat, and commemorative laminate which are not available to GA attendees. Festival attendees who opt to purchase Fur Coat VIP ($499) will have access to all previously listed on-site comforts, as well as premium elevated viewing cabanas, an ultra-exclusive air-conditioned VIP hideaway lounge featuring live streams of all main stage performances, and all-day happy hour drink pricing (for guests 21+).

This year, JMBLYA is also offering its most luxurious VIP ticket option to date with the debut of the Drop Top VIP package for $2500.  This package includes four festival passes, complimentary golf cart rides from stage to stage, a personal professional photographer assigned to the ticket-buyer and their three guests throughout the event; a very special and private porta-potty with a bathroom attendant; a custom shout-out from JMBLYA’s social media channels, a Drop Top-only trailer filled with free snacks and non-alcoholic refreshments, and two food vendor tickets valid for use at any food vendors on the festival grounds. Those interested in any of the VIP packages, especially Drop Top VIP, are encouraged to act fast and purchase soon as each option is limited in quantity.

Each leg of the 2019 festival will again support a local charitable partner. On Day 1 in Dallas, JMBLYA will benefit Music Forward, a highly-regarded nonprofit organization which transforms young lives, inspires careers, and champions a more inclusive music industry. Music Forward has impacted over 1M lives and invested $25M towards providing transformational music opportunities to youth from under-represented communities during the last 25+ years. In Austin for Day 2, the festival will donate a portion of proceeds to Grounded in Music, an Austin-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which works with underprivileged children in grades 4 and up to provide music instruction that would be otherwise absent from their school’s curriculum and to connect children with nationally-recognized musicians, opportunities, and scholarships.

JMBLYA would also like to thank returning sponsors Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Red Bull who are helping to make the 2019 festival possible.

Be on the lookout as more JMBLYA news, including the full performance schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.

DEF JAM’S UNDISPUTED 17-YEAR-OLD PHENOM BERNARD JABS DROPS NEW SONG “STICKS”

JABS WILL BE FEATURED IN DEF JAM’S UNDISPUTED COMPILATION, OUT MARCH 8TH!

Best New Artists of 2018

“Thousands of rappers have spent the past few years experimenting with two-minute, adrenaline rush-style tracks, but Georgia’s Bernard Jabs already seems to have perfected them.” – Pigeons & Planes

20 Rappers To Watch In 2019

“Bernard’s penchant for infectiously fun melodies, breezy beats, and deceptively layered bars will catch on in no time.” – COMPLEX

“Bernard Jabs is the coolest high schooler in the world… With one of the most intriguing voices in the rap game, he makes nearly any flow or cadence sound cool.” – Elevator

ABOUT BERNARD JABS

In an era where there seems to be a side-story of viral fame or leveraging online connections to rise to the top, 17-year-old high school student Bernard Jabs has carved his budding career out from pure authenticity. In Bernard Jabs’ first uploaded track, Gotta Get It, there is the obvious sound of his younger teenage voice, but within that sound is also the raw skill Bernard holds. His ability to channel the charisma of the music he grew up on and blend it with more current rap trends keeps Bernard circulating as one of the brightest new talents of a generation.

Growing up in Tifton, Georgia during part of the height of Southern rap, Bernard gravitated towards the star power of Lil Wayne. After seeing Wayne in the music video for “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” Bernard was entranced in the lifestyle – the cars, the girls, the money, the confidence. Bernard Jabs took to the culture surrounding southern rap and used that history to guide him towards the future.

Listen HERE.

About the release, NETSKY said, “As soon as I heard Bazzi’s topline I knew it was special. We ended up doing a few different versions of the song before we found the production that felt perfect. It turns out it had always been a dream of both of ours to work with Lil Wayne and we couldn’t think of anyone we’d rather have to jump on the track and complete the song. I’m excited for the world to hear what we’ve done together.”

“I Don’t Even Know You Anymore” is the third installment from forthcoming Palmtrees & Powerlines, the two-part project that explores both NETSKY’s magnetic brand of pop music (on Palmtrees) and his genre-bending innovation as a creator of club tracks (on Powerlines).  Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds NETSKY has built.  “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore” continues to build upon Palmtrees, alongside the previously released “Téquila Limonada” feat. A.CHAL.  While last fall NETSKY released “Ice Cold” with David Guetta, which finds its home in Powerlines.

NETSKY closed out an exciting 2018 by releasing Abbot Kinney EP, which featured five new songs with collaborations from Stargate and 1991, as well as features from KyleToulouse, and Jozzy.

Stay tuned for more to come from Palmtrees & Powerlines.
