Blueface Releases New Single

The hottest breakout multi-platinum hip-hop superstar of 2019 and Cash Money West recording artist Blueface releases new single “Close Up” featuring Jeremih today. Get it HERE.
 
The track illuminates another side of Blueface, showcasing his diverse talents as he delivers a West Coast love song.
 
On the heels of the stratospheric success of his debut EP, Dirt Bag, Blueface is putting the finishing touches on his highly anticipated full-length album—coming very soon.
 
Blueface flipped rap upside down in 2019 with his own flow, flare, and fire. Dirt Bag yielded one banger after another with “Bleed It” [68 million Spotify streams], “Daddy” featuring Rich The Kid [49 million Spotify streams], “Bussdown” featuring Offset [14 million Spotify streams], and “Bussin” featuring Lil Pump [9.7 million Spotify streams], to name a few. As part of his recent inclusion on the XXL “Freshman Cover,” the outlet proclaimed him “one of the hottest new acts in the game” and claimed “the 22-year-old rapper has drawn comparisons to legends like E-40 and Juvenile due to the off-kilter flow that finds him rapping against the current of whatever beat he’s on.” Echoing this sentiment, Complex wrote, “his cadence—skittering and almost comical—doesn’t fit neatly into the current (or past) landscape of hip-hop. But that’s exactly what makes him so interesting.”

David Lynch Foundation

Last night, the David Lynch Foundation’s Silence The Violence concert dazzled audiences at Washington D.C.’s The Anthem. The star-studded benefit saw Katy Perry, Mavis Staples, Norah Jones, and many more come together in order raise the funds needed to bring the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique to 10,000 at-risk youth in Washington, D.C. through THEARCPRESS HERE to download photos from the Silence The Violence benefit.

Kicking off the evening, singer-songwriter Jeremy Elliot performed his debut solo track “The Deep End” before DavidLynchFoundation CEO and renowned TM teacher BobRoth, News4 Today anchor EunYang, and THEARC CEO RahsaanBernard addressed the crowd (which included Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner) and led them in a minute of silent mindfulness.


NorahJones captivated audiences with a stunning set that included “JustA Little Bit,” a cover of Neil Young’s “Don’t Be Denied,” “I’ve Got To See You Again,” and “Don’t Know Why.” Her set was followed by a soulful rendition of Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me” by the Celebration Gospel Choir. Bringing the audience to their feet, gospel and R&B icon Mavis Staples took the stage to a standing ovation and treated concert-goers to four songs supported by Rob Mathes’ Band, including “Change,” “Will The Circle Be Unbroken,” “TheWeight,” and her showstopping smash-hit , “I’ll Take You There,” that had D.C. dancing in the aisles. 

Proceeded by BobRothRahsaanBernard, and Washington D.C Regional Director RenaBoon who spoke about the David Lynch Foundation and their work as a resident partner operating The Meditation Center at THEARCKaty Perry brought the evening to a close with breathtakingly intimate, re-imagined versions of some of her biggest hits including “Roar” and “Wide Awake.” The audience was treated to one of the biggest surprises of the night when she played one of her most powerful anthems, “Rise,” live for only the second time ever since its 2016 release. Before she closed the night with an electrifying mash-up of the Edwin Hawkins Singers’ “OhHappyDay” paired with “Firework” and the Celebration Gospel Choir, she also led the room in singing “Happy Birthday” to Bob Roth. 

“Mental health is the number one challenge we’re facing in our lifetime,” said Katy Perry. “I’ve had depression in the past, and I’ve used my music and meditation to combat it. Once you learn it, it never goes away. You’ll have it for the rest of your life. Whenever I’m in a funky mood or if I’m jetlagged or if I’m anxious – I’ll say just give me 20 minutes, and I will go deep and come back out a transformed person. I’m here tonight because I hope that we can give this tool [of meditation] to so many young people that are suffering.” 

“The reason why we’re doing this is because no one really knows about it, and thanks to Mavis and Norah and Katy and so many others, we’re getting the word out,” said Bob Roth. 

As the resident partner of (THEARC) West Campus  in Washington D.C.’s Wards 7 and 8, the David Lynch Foundation has taught the Transcendental Meditation technique to over 500 people withinTHEARC Partners. Proceeds will help bring TM to vulnerable communities in the District through in-school and after school programs, churches and community centers, recovery programs, and detention centers in partnership with THEARC(Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus). Research has shown that TM reduces stress, heals PTSD, lowers substance abuse, improves academic performance and graduation rates, and reduces arrests for violent crime.

Previous David Lynch Foundation benefit concerts have included headliners such as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Sting, Eddie Vedder, Ben Harper, Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow, Robert Plant, Hugh Jackman, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Jim Gaffigan, and more.

Harley-Davidson Museum, Milwaukee, 360 MAGAZINE

Harley-Davidson Museum

When autumn arrives, look to the Harley-Davidson Museum to keep the good times rolling. New exhibits, family-friendly fun and more promise to deliver miles and miles of smiles. Whether it’s opening the doors for Gallery Night or bringing hundreds of fitness fans to campus for a Spartan workout, the H-D Museum has something for everyone this month.

NEW INSTALLATIONS
“Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” (open now)
A recently recovered cache of architectural drawings includes plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. The pencil drawings, along with archival photographs, demonstrate the whirlwind pace of the company’s early growth. While building an international business—going from producing just over 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to manufacturing 27,000 motorcycles in 1920—the company’s Milwaukee factory experienced near-constant expansion. Construction through this relatively brief period created the buildings that today, a century later, are still the proud home of Harley-Davidson.
“Building a Milwaukee Icon” provides a snapshot of Harley-Davidson’s formative years and illustrates a chapter of Milwaukee history when the city was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.”

Experience Gallery: Model Year 2020 Harley-Davidson motorcycles
Always a favorite photo opportunity for riders and non-riders alike, the H-D Museum’s Experience Gallery has been revamped to feature five 2020 Harley-Davidson motorcycles – including the all-new, all-electric LiveWire™!

Custom Culture Installation: “Blackbird”
Blackbird, from the minds of Bobby Greene and Justin Walls, pays homage to Joe Petrali’s 1936 EL landspeed motorcycle. Elements of Petrali’s machine are imitated in this contemporary custom bike. Both vehicles use Harley-Davidson handlebars and forks made for board trackers; both have hillclimber frames; and their wheels are the same design and size. On display for a limited time, race fans will be thrilled to get an up-close look at this tribute to historic motorcycle landspeed racing.   

EVENTS
$10 Tuesday are back!
Don’t forget: Museum admission on Tuesdays from October through April is just $10, no reservation required. And kids are just two for $10, too! Plus, a Hamilton gets you the delicious chef’s choice Taco Tuesdays at MOTOR Bar & Restaurant.

Ne-Yo, Another Kind of Christmas, 360 MAGAZINE, Motown Records

NE-YO XMAS ALBUM

Purchase Another Kind Of Christmas HERE 

 

Today, NE-YO released Another Kind Of Christmas (Motown Records/Compound Entertainment), his first-ever holiday album. The three-time GRAMMY® winner brings his own unique point-of-view to the season with five newly-penned tracks and reimagined versions of thoughtfully-selected Christmas classics – including “Someday At Christmas,” a plea for peace written by Motown songwriters Ron Miller and Bryan Wells for Stevie Wonder during the Vietnam War, and Marvin Gaye’s “I Want To Come Home For Christmas,” inspired by the plight of prisoners of war.

 

“NE-YO says, of the album “see you this Holiday season and every holiday season after! Think you’re gonna love it that much!”

 

“Just Ain’t Christmas” candidly captures the pain of a Christmas Eve break-up while the playful double entendres of “Open Mine Tonight” celebrate what goes down after the kids go to bed. “Talk About It” evokes childhood Christmas memories, complete with the inevitable family dramas that unfold – “somebody gon’ fight, somebody gon’ cry, somebody gon’ try to leave/Then they gon’ squash it all right before it’s time to eat.” NE-YO, Satori and Dre Island each take a verse on the reggae-influenced “Christmas Vibez,” which imagines a tropical holiday getaway for two. Other guest artists include Candice Boyd on “Carol Of The Bells” and RaVaughn on “Someday At Christmas.”

 

NE-YO puts his stamp on such standards as Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” “Merry Christmas Baby,” originally recorded by Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, and “The Christmas Song,” which was written by Robert Wells and Mel Tormé and first recorded by the Nat King Cole Trio. He recorded Another Kind Of Christmas in Montego Bay, Jamaica with longtime collaborator Curtis “Sauce” Wilson producing many of the tracks.

 

NE-YO has sold a cumulative 20+ million adjusted albums worldwide. He has won three GRAMMY® awards and been honored with a total of 14 nominations, His first single, 2005’s “So Sick,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified quadruple Platinum. Since then, he has racked up a collection of hit singles – including “Sexy Love,” “Closer,” “Because of You,” “Miss Independent” and “Push Back” featuring Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don. Three of his albums have entered SoundScan’s Top Current Albums chart at No. 1.

 

He has proven to be as powerful with his pen as he is in the recording studio and on stage. The Las Vegas native quickly became known as a go-to hitmaker, penning bangers like Rihanna’s “Unfaithful,” “Russian Roulette,” and “Take a Bow,” along with Beyoncé’s 2006 breakup anthem “Irreplaceable” and songs for such artists as Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, among others. NE-YO’s film and television credits include “Save the Last Dance,” “World of Dance,” “Battle: Los Angeles,” “Stomp the Yard,” George Lucas’ “Red Tails,” “Empire,” “The Wiz Live!” and “Step Up: High Water.”

digital nomads, Vaughn Lowery, 360 MAGAZINE, Asia, Cambodia

Digital Nomads


Telecommunication infrastructure, a changing working culture, and availability of gadgets are making it easier for people to work from anywhere. This has created a class of digital nomads who work on freelance writing jobs from anywhere, make a decent living, and enjoy life while at it. All a person requires to become a digital nomad is a laptop or computer gadget like a tablet, internet connection, and a place to sit.

Digital nomads are working from such unconventional places as cafeterias, public parks, libraries, and co-working spaces, among such other flexible places. As the name suggests, they are nomads who have shunned the conventional office space to work from anywhere.

Why Become A Digital Nomad


A lot of employers are looking for ideas on how to cut down on office and operational expenses. They are outsourcing services that are non-essential to freelancers around the world. Freelancing is, therefore, presenting a rewarding working opportunity for these digital nomads.
Traditional work environments are also tiring and unattractive. You are forced to get to the office at 8 and leave at 5. The current workforce desires a flexible work environment where you can relax without unwarranted or bossy supervision after completing your task for the day. The opportunity to work in a nomadic setup, therefore, becomes extremely attractive to a present-day generation of workers.


Travel While You Work


Everyone would love to travel the world. However, an 8-5 job cannot allow you to travel because it confines you to a particular office location. A digital nomad works from anywhere he or she feels comfortable. This could be a park, office rooftop, on a train, or café, among such other relaxing areas. It is interesting to travel without incurring expenses or risking your work.
Some of the job opportunities for digital nomads include app development, content writing, programming, and editing. You have to pitch to direct clients or register at a website that allows you to pick these jobs. Other jobs that suit digital nomads include affiliate marketing, blogging, SEO specialists, and social media managers. The jobs still require skills, customer satisfaction, and commitment.


A digital nomad is a freelancer who chooses to work while he or she travels. It is an excellent opportunity for graduates before they settle and start families. The chance to travel while you still work and earn a decent income while it makes digital nomad experience attractive. To survive in the industry, you must gain the right skills, get clients to provide the work and commit to delivering quality work.

Krept & Konan, 360 MAGAZINE, rap duo

Krept & Konan

Today record-breaking rap duo Krept & Konan announce they will be releasing their highly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ on 1st November 2019. To mark the announcement, Krept & Konan have dropped Krept’s ‘Morley’s Freestyle’ with accompanying visual filmed outside Morely’s in Thornton Heath. Watch it here.

The release of Krept & Konan’s second studio album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ will precedetheirupcoming headline nationwide UK tour which will kick off on 23rd November at Olympic Theatre, Dublin and wrap up on 5th December at The O2, London. The album announcement comes hot on the heels of Krept & Konan fronting BBC Docuseries, The Rap Game UK, a competition series looking for the next big British rap star which was won by Kiico, who is now signed to Krept & Konan’s record label, Play Dirty

I Spy ft. Headie One and K Trap, the first single to be lifted from ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ debuted at #18 in the UK charts on release over the summer, making it Krept & Konan’s second Top 20 single. It followed the release of Ban Drill (with its accompanying Rapman directed short film), which addressed the controversial move by the State and the Police to ban Drill music. Around the release of Ban Drill, Krept & Konan launched a change.org petition (asking the CPS to ‘stop silencing musicians’) and were invited by Diane Abbott MP to the Houses of Parliament to debate whether or not censoring Drill music and prosecuting Drill artists is an effective way to combat crime. 

In 2017 Krept and Konan made history with 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTSwhen they became the first act ever to have two mixtapes simultaneously enter the Top 10 of the Official UK Albums chart. They’ve now notched up a #2 album, two top 10 mixtapes (with 7 DAYS now certified silver), one platinum single (Freak Of The Week ft. Jeremih), three silver singles, and a total of over half a billion streams. The past eighteen months alone has seen Krept & Konan sell out a headline show at Alexandra Palace, perform main slots at Wireless and Reading & Leeds Festivals, and successfully launch their restaurant Crepes & Cones in their native Croydon.

ABOUT KREPT & KONAN

Krept & Konan made chart history in 2017 with the release of mixtapes 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS when they became the first act ever to have two mixtapes simultaneously enter the Top 10 of the Official UK Albums chart. A UK first (no other British artist has released two mixtapes on the same day), 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS reflect the two sides of Krept & Konan’s signature sound and boast features from the likes of J HusSkeptaStormzyAbra CadabraJhene AikoHudson EastTory Lanez and more.

Krept & Konan have repeatedly broken records while consistently breaking ground – this recent record, is the third the duo have broken: In 2013 their Young Kingz mixtape shot into the top 20 of the Official UK album charts, earning them a world record for the Highest-Charting UK album by an Unsigned Act. In 2015 their debut album The Long Way Home became the highest charting British Rap album in UK chart history after debuting at no. 2 in the official UK album charts.

Krept & Konan, who have received numerous awards (including a BET Award and five MOBO Awards), are universally acclaimed and respected within the global music community. They have collaborated with renowned MCs and singer-songwriters on both sides of the pond – including (but not limited to): Rick RossTy Dolla $ignStormzyWiz KhalifaJeremiahSkeptaEd Sheeran and Emeli Sande. Their ongoing critical acclaim and chart success has helped pave the way for the likes of J-Hus, Kojo Funds, Abra Cadabra, Yungen, Mo Stack and Section Boys (to name but a few): if Wiley is the Godfather of Grime, then Krept & Konan are the trailblazers of a second generation/ wave in British urban music artists – from Rap to Afrobeat. In the words of Stormzy, Krept & Konan are “UK rap royalty”.

Krept & Konan have a huge live following. In addition to performing on the main stages at multiple festivals (V, Wireless, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds), they have embarked on numerous sold-out UK & European headline tours, most recently performing two back to back shows at Kentish Town Forum and a triumphant sold out date at Alexandra Palace.

Aside from a busy live and recording schedule, the past eighteen months has seen Krept & Konan launch their own restaurant Crepes & Cones in Croydon, and (alongside Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Target) front BBC Docuseries, The Rap Game UK, a competition series looking for the next big British rap star which was won by Kiico, who is now signed to Krept & Konan’s record label, Play Dirty
