Skilla Baby – Project X

On the fast track towards a major mainstream breakthrough, rising Detroit rapper Skilla Baby serves up his new “Project X” music video featuring and directed by DaBaby out now via Geffen Records. Watch HERE.

DaBaby also notably stepped behind the camera for the raucous music video. Nodding to the classic comedy Project X, this dynamic duo ignites the festivities at a wild frat party like only they can.

The track winds a melodic synth loop around a tight and steady beat anchored by 808s produced by Southside. Skilla Baby leans into a focused and fiery flow highlighted by quotable bars. Primed to start any party, the hook instantly booms with an intoxicating proclamation, “We turnt up.” DaBaby maintains this energy with a standout verse of his own. “Project X” follows the street music video for “Misfit (feat. Polo G)”. Both tracks are off his mixtape The Coldest.

Speaking to his impact, Skilla Baby is officially a part of XXL’s coveted 2024 Freshman Class as this year’s “People’s Champ”—voted by the fans.

Not to mention, Skilla Baby is currently on the road for his co-headline “Vultures Eat The Most” Tour with Rob49. They sat down for an exclusive interview with People who observed, “Doing whatever he feels seems to be the ultimate mission for Skilla Baby. And right now, he feels like hitting the road with fellow MC and another hit-maker destined to do things on his own accord, Rob49.”

Skilla Baby has been on a hot streak with recent plugs in the Associated Press, Galore, Billboard, Stereogum, Rolling Out (cover story) and more. Among many accolades, Skilla Baby recently graced the 2024 BET Awards red carpet.

Thus far, Skilla Baby has amassed nearly 400 million streams. He has notched major co-signs from the likes of Big Sean, Jack Harlow, Southside, Coi Leray, City Girls, Rylo Rodriguez, Rob49, Tee Grizzley, Luh Tyler, YTB Fatt, and many others.

The 3 Steps To Help You Start A Fine Art Collection

Starting an art collection can beautify your home and can also be a good investment. People start collecting art for various reasons. Some appreciate the beauty and cultural significance of art, while others see it as a strategic way to diversify their investment portfolios. 

You don’t need to be wealthy to start collecting art, but having a good eye for potential deals and an appreciation for art can go a long way. As you start, it’s important to know why you want to collect art and learn the basics of beginning an art collection and making choices that fit your personal and financial goals. In this article, we will go over the important first steps.

1 – Educate yourself about art

Learning about art is a key step as you start your collection. Begin by exploring different art styles, historical periods, and artistic movements. You can find lots of information in books, documentaries, and online courses. 

You might decide to focus on specific types of art, like modernist paintings or contemporary sculptures, depending on what you like the most. Knowing more about these areas will help you make smarter choices and might lead you to discover new artists with great potential.

You also need to learn about the practical parts of owning art, such as how to take care of it and where to store it. For instance, if you live in Texas and need a safe place to keep your art, there are Texas art storage facilities designed to protect fine art properly.

2 – Set some goals

Before buying any art, it’s important to figure out what you want from your collection. Understanding your main reasons will help you focus your efforts and make choices that satisfy you.

Next, think about how much money you can spend on art. Setting a budget will help you avoid spending too much and guide you in choosing pieces that you can afford. It’s a good idea to start with smaller investments and increase your spending as you become more familiar with the art world.

Finally, decide on a theme or specific type of art you want to collect. This could be anything from paintings from a certain time period to modern sculptures. Having a specific focus makes your collection more interesting and easier to manage. It also helps you learn a lot about that particular area of art.

3 – Build connections

Building relationships is key to becoming a successful art collector. Start by frequently visiting art galleries, attending art show openings, and going to art fairs. These places are great for meeting artists, gallery owners, and other collectors. Talking to people at these events can help you learn about new trends and artists who are gaining attention.

Joining art clubs or societies can also be helpful. These groups bring together people who love art, and they organize events like talks and tours where you can learn from experienced collectors and art professionals.

Bizzarrini

Bizzarrini makes key steps in strengthening its already impressive team and building its corporate structure with the appointment of Isobel Dando to the role of CEO, effective July 2024. Isobel brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge from a career in automotive, where she has been central to the successful reinvention and relaunch of some of the most iconic automotive brands.

Isobel has held senior positions at the likes of Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover and – most recently – MOKE.

Rezam Al Roumi, Executive Chairman and owner of Bizzarrini: “We are delighted to welcome Isobel Dando as our CEO at Bizzarrini. The experience she brings with her is unmatched, and we are excited to see how her visionary leadership helps guide the brand in this next phase of development as the Giotto program continues to gain momentum.

This appointment complements an already powerful and experienced executive team comprised of Ian Fenton, who moves to the role of Board Advisor following Isobel’s arrival; Dr Ulrich Bez, Board Advisor; Chris Porritt, Chief Technical Officer; Fraser Dunn, Chief Engineer; Simon Busby, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer; Dr Matthew Bennett, Sales Director and Lewis Trickett, Head of Commercial and Programme.

This further senior appointment coincides with the conclusion of the successful 5300 GT Corsa Revival programme, which began 24 months ago and has recently seen the last of the 24 editions delivered to new owners. 

Isobel Dando, Chief Executive of Bizzarrini: “I am thrilled to join Bizzarrini. Following the success of the 5300 GT Corsa Revival, The Giotto is the first project in the new era that honors our founder’s vision, to combine cutting edge technology with breathtaking design. With The Giotto and additional projects in the pipeline, the team and I are passionate to deliver an enduring legacy that Giotto Bizzarrini would be proud of.”

Whilst building a strong and credible team Bizzarrini is also investing in its corporate structure through the establishment of operations in both Italy and the UK, housed in premises and locations supporting the ambition and future business plans of this iconic brand. One of the first is the launch of the Centro Tecnologico di Bizzarrini (CTB) at Silverstone.

These investments illustrate the determined focus that now falls fully on the creation and delivery of the next chapter in the Bizzarrini story embodied in an all-new Hyper GT car – The Giotto. The Giotto is a breathtaking new model building on the legacy of engineering excellence, and purist Italian styling that the brand is renowned for.

Designed by the legendary Giorgetto Giugiaro, and his son Fabrizio at GFG Style, The Giotto is a future icon that honors the brand’s heritage, flowing powerfully, elegantly and purposefully to embody the perfect balance between velocity and luxury. 

Featuring a bespoke carbon fibre body that echoes the signature design of the iconic Bizzarrini 5300 GT, the heart of this masterpiece is the exclusive Bizzarrini V12 engine, developed in partnership with Cosworth. This naturally aspirated engine is a poignant reminder of Giotto Bizzarrini’s design for the original Lamborghini V12, the cylinder capacity of 6626cc being a further respective nod to the founder’s birth date, 6th June 1926.

The spirit of Giotto Bizzarrini is reignited in The Giotto, designed and styled through a 60-year partnership of virtuosity, engineered to stir the emotions and deliver the moments of automotive wonderment.
