Top Stories – March

As we head towards another month is 2022, it seems as though this year will be quite eventful. Below are the top news stories for the final winter month!

Ukraine Huminitarian Crisis

The war in Ukraine is no longer just a story about a conflict between nations. It’s having an immediate impact on millions of people, creating multitudes of refugees, which in turn is creating a worldwide humanitarian crisis. It’s having an impact on global food insecurity since Ukraine produces a significant share of wheat supplies for other countries. While across the border, Russia also produces a large number of food experts, which are not inhibited by sanctions against the invading country.

Oil and gas experts from Russia are hanging in the balance as the West considers a ban on those imports. Financial institutions have sanctioned Russia, and the financial system in Ukraine has been impacted, causing a major economic disruption in that region of the world. The supply chain for goods from these countries and through them is being disrupted as a result of the violence. How can the West address and overcome all of these disruptions while taking a hard line against Russia’s aggression?

Ukraine Further Pushes No-Fly Zone

Ukraine’s defense ministry released a video of an edited hypothetical attack on Paris that would occur as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The ministry warned that this attack would be possible if a no-fly zone weren’t issued to prevent aerial attacks. The footage showed bombs going off near the Eiffel Tower.

Ukraine has called for a no-fly zone and other preventative measures in order to prevent Russia from overtaking more areas of the world. Many Ukrainian and global officials see the attacks against Ukraine as an unjust overtaking of territory. They consider Russia’s defense of the war as an attempt to prevent Ukrainian aggression as doctored. Others have suggested that the war is partially stemmed in history with Russia considering Ukraine and Russia to be the one and the same, as well as making note of Ukraine’s conveniently located Black Sea ports.

NATO has thus far been against a no-fly zone as that might invite Russian aggression towards NATO territories.

Jussie Smollett Sentencing

Actor Jussie Smollett was sentenced to 150 days in jail (around 5 months) and 30 months of parole after his 2017 scandal in which he lied to police officers about an attack that occurred against him. He was found to have paid for the attack to occur against him.

Smollett’s final comments before being taken away have been the result of much controversy. Smollett stated, “Your honor, I respect you and I respect your decision, but I did not do this and I am not suicidal. If anything happens to me when I go in there, I did not do it to myself, and you must all know that.” Many have found this statement humorous, including actor 50 Cent, who joked that he would say the same thing if he were to appear in front of a judge again.

Ryan Coogler Detained

Film director Ryan Coogler, known for 2018’s Black Panther, was briefly detained in January at a Bank of America in Atlanta, Georgia. Coogler’s medical assistant asked to be paid in cash, thus the director wrote a note suggesting the money should be counted discreetly given it was an amount over $10,000. 

However, despite Coogler not being visibly armed, officers arrived and pulled guns out on the director, who appeared visibly confused yet nonetheless complied with their orders. He was handcuffed and escorted to a police vehicle, but released moments later once his identity had been confirmed.

Senate Confirmation Hearings

As Justice Steve Breyer left his position as Supreme Court Judge, President Biden appointed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is now being confirmed by the Senate. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked the judge about critical race theory, because Brown serves on the board of a school district with curriculum including critical race theory.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) made a false statement suggesting Brown referred to President George W. Bush and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld as “war criminals.” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) later corrected him.

Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show

By: Skyler Johnson

The Super Bowl Halftime Show is always a performance to remember and is oftentimes defining for an artist. Audiences are consistently provided with top-of-the-line choreography, special effects, and artistic direction. This year was no different, with performances by five legendary hip hop artists, including Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, and Snoop Dogg.

Unlike other past performances, Super Bowl LVI’s didn’t include a ton of huge, fancy getups and expensive sets. And, this is one of the few performances where there weren’t dramatic changes to the set and outfits throughout. No one performed on a chariot like Madonna, or on a metallic lion, like Katy Perry. Instead, the entire set was five white stages that looked like buildings, placed in a row, on top of a large, overhead shot of Compton that carpeted the field.

This Half Time performance made history as it was the first time there were five headliners and the first time the artists were predominantly hip hop/rap artists. Rappers have performed during the event beforehand (including Puff Daddy and Nelly) but never have there been that many at a time.

Another unique aspect of this Super Bowl was the color scheme. Most of the performers wore dark or earthy tones, save for Mary J Blige and Snoop Dogg. The former wore a striking, silvery-white outfit and the latter wore a regal blue suit.

 There were sequences of intense choreography but not from the performing artists. The result is that the music shined through. And the track list was legendary. “The Next Episode” and “Lose Yourself” are just examples of some of the great, classic music that was played during this show. Unforgettable moments included a sequence where 50 Cent rapped “In Da Club” upside down, reminiscent of the iconic original music video. Eminem performed “Lose Yourself” with Anderson Paak on drums.

Kendrick Lamar delivered an intoxicating and beautifully choreographed performance of his hit songs “M.A.A.D. City” and “Alright.” For many, they saw their childhood compiled into one performance given how many artists and songs were represented.

At the center of it all is Dr. Dre, who produced many of the songs, and discovered many of the artists that were represented here. The artist who founded Dre Beats and other iconic brands was celebrated during this performance.

This performance came at a very interesting time for rapper and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg. The rapper is known as both a Billboard no. 1 artist and an actor (Beach Bum, Soul Plane), who also hosts a cooking show with Martha Stewart. He has now purchased Death Row Records, a record label founded by Dr. Dre. 

Overall, this Half Time Show, while not flashy or extravagant, was certainly one for the books.

BIG30 – Protest

Fresh off the release of his explosive debut project, BIG30 released his first new music this year with hard-hitting: “Protest”. The track is a dynamic blend of technical skill and steely intensity, mixing percussive flows and 30’s vivid recollections of life. The track, which pays tribute to Pooh Shiesty, 30’s friend and frequent collaborator, comes alongside an official music video that has also been released.

King of Killbranch, released last Fall, marked BIG30‘s most ambitious effort to date. The project solidified him as one of the strongest newcomers of the past year and began his journey to rap dominance. Prior to the project release, he kicked off 2021 with a celebrated feature on Pooh Shiesty‘s RIAA Gold-certified “Neighbors,” which peaked at #51 on the Billboard Hot 100. From there, he completed a trap artist rite of passage by appearing on Gucci Mane‘s “Shit Crazy,” garnering the attention of Complex, Vulture, and other tastemaking outlets in the process. With several standout singles and his debut project at his back, BIG30 is set to make the most of his moment, which is starting to look like it will last a very long time. 

About BIG30

Armed with a blistering delivery, menacing lyrics, and bullet-riddled memories from the Memphis streets, BIG30–the 21-year-old rapper to watch–unloads casual threats and bleak aphorisms with a concussive force that’s beginning to reverberate through the industry. His verse on Pooh Shiesty’s 2021 single “Neighbors” was the shot heard ’round the world, giving 30 his first RIAA Gold certification without even releasing his own project. By the time the duo recorded “Neighbors,” more than two years after they started writing tracks together, BIG30 had refined his flow and arrived more confident than ever. That song peaked at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and contributed to the now 116M+ global streams that 30 can claim. Until then, 30 had been watching YouTube views and Facebook shares, not RIAA-certifications, especially since he wasn’t sure if the public was ready for the raw content of his bars. Now, he takes advice from people like 50 Cent and records with the idols he grew up listening to. 30, the father of two children (with another on the way) plans to one day have his own record label and millions to his name. After signing to N-Less/Bread Gang Entertainment, he has the chance to reach the potential his label boss saw in him right away. Now, as he shares his debut project with the world, he’s ready to prove his spot among the many heavyweights who’ve given him their co-sign.

Their parents Charles Flenory (Russell Hornsby) and Lucille Flenory (Michole Briana White), as well as their spiritual advisor, Pastor Swift (Snoop Dogg), push the brothers to pursue formal education. The tension between Meech and Terry’s blood family and the criminal family they formed to eradicate themselves from poverty creates inner conflict as the brothers pursue the ever-elusive American Dream.

BMF stars Demetrius Lil Meech Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius Big Meech Flenory; Da’Vinchi (The Way Back, grown-ish), Russell Hornsby (Fences, The Hate U Give), Michole Briana White (Dead to Me, She Hate Me), Ajiona Alexus (Empire,13 Reasons Why), Eric Kofi Abrefa (Blue Story, Fury), Myles Truitt (Black Lightning,The New Edition Story) and Steve Harris (The Practice, Diary of a Mad Black Woman). Snoop Dogg (Dolemite Is My Name, Soul Plane, Training Day), Arkeisha Kash Doll Knight, Wood Harris (Empire, Creed), La La Anthony (The Chi, Think Like a Man) and Serayah (Empire, Favorite Son) star in recurring roles.

Andy Mineo × Lecrae

In the midst of his “The Return To Never Land” Tour Andy Mineo got the call he’d been waiting for. The world will finally get to see his new music video for “Been About It,” ft Lecrae! With his Never Land II album critically acclaimed with over 7 million streams in 1 week, Andy Mineo, is poised for crossover success.

After 80 million streams from their viral hit, “Coming In Hot,” fans were looking forward to a follow-up project with Andy Mineo and Lecrae. With the momentum built, Mineo hit producer, Sak Pase, producer of “Coming In Hot,” for another banger.

The “Been About It” video features recreation of the album artwork of the most famous hip-hop albums ever released.

“Been About It is a homage to the music that raised me. An homage to the culture and the creators who paved a way for hip hop to be a global phenomenon that I get to be a part of,” shares Andy. “We’ve lost so many iconic hip-hop artists in the past few years and sadly, we wait until people die to give them their props! Lecrae and I recorded this song and a dope video to pay tribute to the artists who have impacted hip-hop and inspired us!”

His partner-in-rhyme, Lecrae adds, “Andy and I are products of Hip Hop. These are some of the albums that shaped our childhood. I especially loved remaking the Tupac album cover. He was iconic.”

The first time the public saw the “Been About It” video was at the Atlanta private VIP listening session. The day before the album release, Lecrae and Andy traversed the Atlanta Beltline, playing the Never Land II album for random people while capturing reactions to the original “Been About It” video. At a VIP meet-and-greet during “The Return To Never Land II” tour, Andy privately showed snippets from the video.

The reactions from everyday people on the belt-line and the texts he received from influencers and media friends were so energizing.

Today Andy Mineo & Lecrae are proud to share their love letter to hip-hop, the artists and the creatives who are keeping the culture alive! You can find some of these memorable album covers recreated in the “Been About It” video:

KASH DOLL – LIKE A PRO FT. JUICY J

KASH DOLL RELEASES NEW TRACK & LYRIC VIDEO “LIKE A PRO” FEAT. JUICY J

Stars in 50 Cent’s New Starz Series ‘Black Mafia Family Out September 26

“Kash Doll is sharp, headstrong and savvy” – Billboard
“One of the most promising acts of female rap’s current class” – Nylon
“Kash Doll has established herself as a pioneering force in the industry.”– MTV
“Kash Doll has established herself as one of hip-hop’s leading female voices.” – XXL

Gold-selling Detroit rapper, entrepreneur, and actress Kash Doll drops her new track and lyric video “Like A Pro” feat. Juicy J via Republic Records.

As always, she comes through with the kind of raw lyrical fire that’s too hot to touch. Over a high-energy throwback beat, she delivers one raunchy and braggadocious bar after another with Juicy J joining her on the catchy hook.

Her most recent single Thumbin has already racked up millions of streams to date. Additionally, HotNewHipHop praised the track’s “addictive chorus and copious amounts of quotable lyrics, while hailing it as “the next big hit on short-form video sharing platforms like TikTok and Triller.

The track arrived on the heels of her knockout collaboration with DJ Famous—“Bad Azz” feat. Mulatto & Benny The Butcher, which has amassed 9 million streams and counting. Beyond features from REVOLT, Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan and more, UPROXX claimed, “Kash Doll, DJ Infamous, Mulatto, and Benny The Butcher show why the competition is mad with ‘Bad Azz.’”

Kash Doll, who has garnered over 1 billion streams worldwide since signing with Republic Records, continues to pull up everywhere this year. She features on Saweetie’s “Hoops” alongside the legendary Salt-N-Pepa from the mega-anticipated Space Jam: A New Legacy Soundtrack. She’ll take the stage at Detroit Summer Fest on August 13, Migos “Culture III” Las Vegas Weekender on October 15 and Rolling Loud LA on December 10. She will appear in a starring recurring role on STARZ’ Black Mafia Family, which will premiere on September 26.

Kash Doll continues to make waves. Receiving critical acclaim from Vulture and Marie Claire, Essence praised, “If there’s one rapper who can teach us a thing or two about remaining confident, it’s Kash Doll.” Meanwhile, she guested on “Friday Night Cypher” from Big Sean’s chart-dominating Detroit 2 and joined forces with HoodCelebrityy for “So Pretty.”

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, securing a new management deal with Title 9 Productions and inking a recording contract 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 85 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 30 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 101 million YouTube/VEVO views independently. 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. Additionally, in 2019, Kash Doll released her debut album Stacked, received a 2019 BET Award nomination for “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist,” garnered critical acclaim for her album from BillboardMTV, UPROXX, BETForbes, Nylon and more and toured with Meek Mill. This year will be full of brand new music, acting and more from the Detroit star.
