Dodi Blunts × Last Prisoner Project – Apprenticeship Program for Justice-Impacted Individuals

Dodi Blunts and Last Prisoner Project (LPP) are excited to announce the Dodi Blunts/Last Prisoner Project Apprenticeship Program. This program is designed to help LPP constituents take their first step back into working society and offers them the mentoring, training and hands-on experience needed for a career in the cannabis industry. For 90 days, the apprentice will work with Dodi Blunts, gaining valuable experience and industry connections needed for a flourishing career in cannabis.

“Having a cannabis felony on your record makes it very hard to earn gainful employment,” said Jeff Goldenberg, Co-Founder of 2nd and Goal Ventures, the company behind Dodi Blunts, “Helping LPP constituents gain a foothold in the cannabis industry makes a ton of sense, given what the industry has taken from the community.”

The program starts in consultation with the apprentice – to determine their skills sets, experiences and interests – and determine an area of focus. The apprentice is also rotated through several different areas and functions to gain a wide variety of experience. Finally, once the program is successfully completed, the apprentice will continue their employment with Dodi or another company in the cannabis industry.

The apprenticeship program is the first initiative between Dodi Blunts and Last Prisoner Project since the launch of Dodi in April. Dodi Blunts is the brand of former NFL superstar Marshawn Lynch, who recently signed on to become a Last Prisoner Project Ambassador. The two organizations have plans for many more initiatives over the coming year.

Last Prisoner Project is not just talking about second chances but really being about it. It only makes sense that those affected by their cannabis past have a chance to let it play a part of their futures too,” said Marshawn Lynch.

“We are beyond excited to team up with Dodi Blunts in this way,” said Last Prisoner Project Managing Director Mary Bailey. “It’s so important that these justice-impacted individuals are given a path forward and Dodi has really stepped up to the plate in a way that we at Last Prisoner Project are so appreciative of and we hope other cannabis companies will follow suit.”

The first apprentice under the new program is Katree Saunders who, in 2011, was convicted on federal charges of possession and intent to distribute cannabis during a federal effort to crack down on Nevada marijuana dispensary operators before retail sale of weed was legalized in the state. Almost a decade later, she’s still working to rebuild her life.

“Being the first LPP constituent in the program, I am excited and thankful at the same time,” said Katree Saunders. “This opportunity with Marshawn and the Dodi brand means a lot to me after being a justice-impacted individual. Having recently graduated Columbia Business School for Entrepreneurship and being accepted to the apprenticeship program, I feel like I can be a shining example of what is possible after being affected by the collateral damage of this failed War on Drugs. It’s the chance to be resilient, while making a positive impact on the community. Just because you have been formerly incarcerated, doesn’t mean you have no goals or dreams you would like to accomplish. It has given me inspiration.”

About Last Prisoner Project:

The Last Prisoner Project (LPP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to cannabis-related criminal justice reform. As the United States moves away from the criminalization of cannabis, giving rise to a major new industry, there remains the fundamental injustice inflicted upon those who have suffered under America’s unjust policy of cannabis prohibition. Through intervention, advocacy, and awareness campaigns, the Last Prisoner Project works to redress the past and continuing harms of these inhumane and ineffective laws and policies. Visit the Last Prisoner Project Website or text FREEDOM to 24365 to donate and learn more.

About Dodi Blunts:

Dodi Blunts invites fans to unite their love for sports and cannabis through high quality, high potency cannabis products, that elevate communities, support social equity issues and represent the Bay Area vibe. The brand is the brainchild of NFL superstar Marshawn “BeastMode” Lynch who professes to “having a love-love relationship with Dodi.” Dodi aims to provide the most innovative, highest potency products while exporting Oakland weed and strains to the rest of the state and the world. Dodi isn’t just a weed brand – it’s a community, a vibe and a revolution.

We want our guests not only to hang out and have a good time playing games and enjoying our amazing local art collection, but also take a deep dive into our expansive drink menu showcasing local flavors, fun cocktails, boozy slushies and many off-the-beaten-path spirits offerings.”

Still Woozy × That’s Life

Still Woozy premieres his new single and official video for That’s Life from his debut album, If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is.

One of the most inventive and multifaceted new voices in the alt-pop world, Still Woozy, returns today with his sweetly lovesick new track That’s Life, released via Still Woozy Productions/Interscope Records. It’s the fourth single from Still Woozy’s forthcoming full-length debut, If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is. The album is due out on August 13.

Wrapped in a glistening exterior, That’s Life captures the sensation of riding out life’s highs and lows. In creating the track, the Portland-based singer/songwriter/producer otherwise known as Sven Gamsky merged lush beats, big bass grooves, and heart-on-sleeve lyrics delivered in his tender vocals. The result is a bittersweet song revealing Still Woozy’s gift for spinning painful feelings into bright and sunny melody.

“This song is my attempt to make peace with life’s inconsistencies,” says Still Woozy.

Along with “That’s Life,” If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is will feature several previously released singles, including Kenny (hailed by Wonderland Magazine as “an intimate and imbued soundscape, filled with alt-pop sensibilities and chilled out vocals”), Rocky (a track that inspired This Song Is Sick to proclaim: “When it comes to the momentous lo-fi/indie pop boom that’s happening right now, Still Woozy is at the head of the pack”), and Window (praised by Earmilk as a “promising first step of the new decade that expands on his groovy DIY aesthetic while maintaining a touching intimacy”).

Gamsky grew up in the Bay Area and began playing guitar as a little kid. By middle school, he’d started writing his own songs, and later honed his guitar skills by playing in a math-rock band. After further developing his musicality by studying classical guitar and electronic music at UC Santa Cruz, he released his debut EP Lately in 2019. Featuring collaborations with Omar Apollo, the self-recorded five-song project includes singles like “Habit” (a track that’s now amassed over 113 million streams on Spotify). Over the years, Still Woozy has taken the stage at major festivals like Coachella, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits, in addition to completing a sold-out North American headlining tour.

Tracklist for If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is by Still Woozy:

1) Woof  

2) Rocky 

3) That’s Life 

4) Woopie 

5) Get By

7) Drake 

8) Window

10) Get Down 

11) All Along

Audrey Mika x Alive

20 year-old rising star Audrey Mika returns to release her new song and video for “Alive” via RCA Records. Written by Audrey, Midi Jones, Andrew Luce, Jesse Saint John and Amisha Sarkar and produced by Midi Jones and Andrew Luce, “Alive” is a soaring showcase for Audrey’s powerhouse vocals. The music video for the track, directed by Mara Whitehead, is the first time Audrey is letting the world into her past life as a dancer.

Audrey Mika says, “This song is a huge reminder to me to be thankful that I am even here and alive in this world and appreciating the ups and downs of life. It’s a reminder and affirmation that it’s okay to not always be okay and to surround yourself with people that look out for you. I’ve come to realize that I wanted to bring dancing and my music together and go back to this part of me. I think that dancing adds vulnerability and I felt it went hand in hand with this song. The dancing, the singing, and the lyrics show all the different sides of me and who I am. And I hope I can share, and inspire others to do the same and show them that they can trust themselves when things become uncomfortable.”

Earlier this year, Audrey released “Chivalry” and “Excuses” which was featured in Teen Vogue’s “Best New Music Friday” list as well as Billboard’s “10 Cool New Pop Songs.”

Hailing from the Bay Area, Audrey Mika first rose to prominence as a YouTube sensation whose following has continued to grow with her unique covers of popular hits. She has amassed over 1.55 million YouTube subscribers who flock to check out her original material such as her two prior projects, 2018’s “Are We There Yet” and 2019’s “Level Up,’ which she recorded entirely on GarageBand. Her latest EP 5 A.M. was released in early 2020 and includes her hit “Y U Gotta B Like That” which has amassed over 111M streams worldwide as well as“Fake Heartbreak” which Idolator called “soulful.” She’s been called a “rising star” by Paper Magazine, Ladygunn declared her “a beacon of Generation Z brightness,” Flaunt Magazine said she “is more than meets the eye, she is a true visionary with a dedication to her dope desires,” Idolator declared her “…one of the breakout stars of 2020” and her original music has been praised by Ones To Watch who called it “incredible.” Her spring tour saw her first ever New York show sold out. In the summer of 2020, Audrey released “Just Friends” which was met with Billboard praising her “top-notch vocals,” and E! News declaring it an “irrepressibly catchy track” as well as “Red Gatorade” which Idolator called a “bop.” She was featured on “Safe With Me” with producer Gryffin which has garnered over 6M streams worldwide. Audrey released her first taste of music in 2021 with “Excuses.”

Still Woozy – BS

Still Woozy’s new single, “BS,” is another homespun and heartfelt song from the technicolor mind of singer/songwriter Sven Gamsky. Out today via Still Woozy Productions/ Interscope Records, the track is a surreal sliver of pop centered around delightfully dazed vocals.  “BS” is available now at all digital retailers.

Like many of Still Woozy songs “BS” dives into Gamsky’s psyche while also offering listeners a way out of their own worries. Yes, the lyrics are about “struggling with his brain,” as he puts it, but they’re ultimately about bringing the best version of oneself to the people we love. The lush instrumental underscores that hope, shining warmth and light through the clouds of darker impulses. That sort of contrast is exactly what makes Still Woozy special, and it’s been his aim ever since he started writing songs as a kid in Northern California’s Bay Area. “I strive for this feeling of warmth to act as a buffer to some of those harsher feelings,” he says.

“BS” is Still Woozy’s second single of 2020, arriving in the misty wake of April’s “Window,” another luxuriant cut tinged with longing. These followed Still Woozy’s 2019 debut EP, ​Lately, which introduced the world to his emotional yet textured tracks. Blending acoustic sounds with delirious dabs of electronics, the EP showed off Gamsky’s affection for deftly psychedelic arrangements ​— ​his songs melt and swirl like crayons on a sidewalk in the summer.

That lighthearted, uncanny feeling is often echoed in the visuals Gamsky pairs with his songs, a trend that continues on the forthcoming video for “BS,” in which, among other trippy images, Gamsky smashes a brain with a mallet while floating in the clouds. It’s laidback and Lynchian in equal measure, which suits the beautiful contrasts at the center of his music. Watch the video for “BS” HERE.

JAWNY

JAWNY – Sabotage

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist JAWNY released his brand new single “Sabotage” today. The “angsty yet anthemic” track is the first shared from JAWNY’s upcoming project For Abby, due out via Interscope Records later this year.
LISTEN TO “SABOTAGE” BY JAWNY HERE
 
“Built on a brilliant collision of bright beats and snarling riffs, “Sabotage” finds JAWNY looking back on a bad breakup with no regrets… With his signature self-aware humor, the 24-year-old artist boldly celebrates romantic destruction at the song’s shout-along chorus (“I sabotage my love/Just because”),” a press release reads.

“‘Sabotage’ is probably my most honest song on the entire project,” says the Bay Area native, “I was feeling really defeated in the room that day, and I feel like the song kinda embodies that.”

JAWNY’s 2019 viral hit “Honeypie,” hailed as a “slacker-funk gem” by DIY Mag, has seen a major resurgence this summer. Its accompanying music video surpassed 10.5 million views on YouTube and the track has now amassed over 53 million streams on Spotify, while JAWNY’s monthly-listener count has reached over 3 million.

Born Jacob Sullenger, JAWNY grew up outside Oakland and started playing guitar when he was just six-years-old. At age 13, he began making beats with his brother, eventually landing placements with several rappers in the SoundCloud scene of the late-aughts. By 2017 he’d gained a cult-like following thanks in part to a series of viral videos posted on Twitter, and drew further buzz in 2018 with a self-titled debut EP made under the name Johnny Utah. In 2019, he broadened his fanbase with widely praised singles like “Honeypie” and “4Tounce.” As labels came calling, JAWNY landed a deal with Interscope Records by the end of the year. With a process he describes as “very scatterbrained and manic and all-over-the-place” — and a happily warped musicality equally inspired by Tyler, the Creator and STRFKR — the L.A.-based artist is set to release his debut project for Interscope in late 2020.
