In the visual, Kash Doll occupies an ornate and classy mansion. As she raps right from bed, the rising superstar simultaneously auditions a series of potential suitors in between performing the track alongside Wale and Eric Bellinger. All at once, it reflects her attitude, swagger, and style on-screen, affirming her star power.

Since dropping last month, “Single & Happy” has already amassed millions of streams and counting. Earning critical acclaim, Complex praised how the track “gets straight to the point: understanding your self worth and seeking a partner who only adds to what you already have, rather than becoming someone you can’t live without.” Vibe highlighted the song’s “positive messages, while HotNewHipHop proclaimed she “didn’t hesitate to bring her bad bitch energy. Sohh summed it up as “pure audio fire.

It followed her previous single “Like A Pro” [feat. Juicy J]. Right out of the gate, HotNewHipHop raved how she “comes with nothing but energy, and Brooklyn Vegan hailed it as “a bouncy, catchy, raunchy new jam. Revolt predicted “the record is expected to be blaring through the speakers of the club ASAP. Elite Press put it best, calling it “one of the best songs of the year.

Kash Doll, who has gathered 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 took the stage at Detroit Summer Fest this month. Next up, she joins the bill of the Migos “Culture III” Las Vegas Weekender on October 15 and Rolling Loud LA on December 10.

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 Billboard, MTV, UPROXX, BET, Forbes, Nylon and more and toured with Meek Mill. This year will be full of brand new music, acting and more from the Detroit star.

President Pro-Tem Mary Sheffield will add Occupy the Corner-Detroit to D.O.N. Weekend activities, will offer vaccines, expungement of records services, unemployment support and more.

Celebrity Kickball game of Team Big Sean vs. Team Sheffield to take place for youth, will feature Michigan’s Lieutenant Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, WJLB’s Dr Darrius, and surprise celebrity guests.

Sunday’s activities will focus on mental health and include Yoga on the Beach and Industry Club Fashion Show.

Multi-platinum artist, philanthropist and BGCSM Alumni Big Sean is excited to return to Detroit for his 3rd Annual Detroit’s On Now (D.O.N.) Weekend Saturday, August 28 – Sunday, August 29. The weekend is presented by the Sean Anderson Foundation (SAF) and hosted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan (BGCSM) and City Council President Pro-Tem Mary Sheffield and will offer free activities for all ages. COVID-19 protocols will be enforced, and attendance is limited. 

This past year and a half has been challenging for everyone. I’m glad we can bring D.O.N. Weekend back and celebrate the people who make this city great, said Big Sean. With all the hurdles Detroit has faced during the pandemic, it’s so important to bring the city together in a positive way.

The new Reimagined Club is another strategic step to ensure Detroit youth have the tools and skills to become career, start-up and homeowner ready before leaving the Clubs at 18. The facility includes not only the new fully functional SAF content and production studio, but updated buildouts of the Ponyride co-working space for area entrepreneurs, computer lab, art gallery, 3D and laser printers, and a retail pop-up shop, similar to BGCSM’s Dauch Club on Tireman, which unveiled its Reimagined space with Big Sean in 2019. 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan is proud to be the anchor partner bringing DON Weekend to Detroit neighborhoods, said Shawn H. Wilson, president & CEO BGCSM. On behalf of the youth and families of Detroit, we want to thank Myra and Sean for their continued support and love for the city.

The special weekend celebrates the Detroit artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, families and long-standing institutions that are the backbone of the city. Along with the special unveiling of the SAF Studio, there will be a community block party and Occupy the Corner led by President Pro-Tem Mary Sheffield. Activities include live DJ, free food, live performances, COVID-19 vaccines, free haircuts and braiding, workforce one jobs, felony expungement, apprenticeship opportunities, carnival rides, gaming stations and a celebrity kickball game.

During these difficult times it’s more important than ever to stay consistent in our service to others. Combining forces with the Sean Anderson Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern for the D.O.N. Weekend and Occupy the Corner – Detroit collaboration is a perfect way to show the community, especially those in need, that there are people who care and resources available, exclaimed Detroit City Council President Pro Tempore Mary Sheffield. Additionally with the new reality resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s nice to help the community we serve and love to get a little slice of normalcy, interaction, and fun.

On Sunday, to continue strong focus on mental and physical wellness, BGCSM will be hosting Yoga on the Beach with Jamel Randall, owner of the Trap Yoga and Massage Studio Detroit and an Industry Club Fashion Show.

The weekend’s events were made possible by presenting sponsors Duo, Detroit Pistons, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Mercy Primary Care Center, Foot Locker, Fratarcangeli Wealth Management, The Mullick Foundation and TKG Business Management LLC.

Event tickets are limited due to COVID precautions but free to the public. BGCSM continues to be a safe space for youth, families and the community amid the current pandemic. Strict safety measures will be actively enforced during weekend activities.

Will Claye – Wee Hours

Today, hip-hop artist and Olympic medalist Will Claye releases his latest single, “Wee Hours,” out now via Red Bull Records. Written by Claye, “Wee Hours” was produced by Grammy-winning songwriter and producer DJ Khalil, best known for his work with Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and more.

Drawing from his own experiences, the strength of “Wee Hours” lies in Claye’s introspective and poignant lyrics, which he delivers with a West Coast-influenced flair. As the opening melodies and subtle instrumentations float in and out of focus, the single’s smooth production is effortlessly juxtaposed against Claye’s heavy-hitting flow.

“This track is inspired by my city, my people, and the kids who are growing up where I come from,” says Claye of the release. “I wanted to speak for people whose voices have been suppressed. I want to inspire my people and show them that even through all the horrific things we have gone through as a people, we can make it through and rise above it all.”

The release of “Wee Hours” follows the announcement of Elevate, the forthcoming documentary from Red Bull, set for release on Tuesday, June 8. The short film follows Claye as he trains for the Olympics and records new music, working to make his mark on the world. As his moment in the spotlight parallels a cultural boiling point surrounding racial injustice, Claye seeks to use his voice to inspire his community’s youth, serving as a positive role model for the next generation. Watch the trailer here.

About Will Claye
Three-time Olympic medalist Will Claye started his path as a world-class athlete. By way of track and field, he was able to move into starting his brand ELEVATE, music, and philanthropy. Will’s brand grew largely at the London Games in 2012, where he earned a bronze medal in the long jump and a silver medal in the triple jump to become the first man since 1936 and the first American since 1904 to obtain medals in both events. The Phoenix, AZ native of Sierra Leone-descent solidified himself as the #3 triple jumper of all time in 2019 and at the same time released an EP, WEST SIDE STORY, and single “TMS.”

The catalyst for Will’s music career came from artist YG inviting him to the studio and them creating “IDGAF,” what is now known as a classic West Coast record. From there, Will began to create his own lane and his own sound, taking inspiration from Bob Marley, Andre 3000, Snoop Dogg, DJ Quick, Pharrell, Jay Z, Nipsey Hussle, Kendrick Lamar, and Nate Dogg. With a wide array of influences, Will has created a sound that is eclectic and diverse, based on how he is feeling and what is going on in life. He is a rare combination of talent and genuine humility, recognizing that he can use his status as an artist and professional athlete to help others.

About DJ Khalil

After catching the ear of mega-producer Dr. Dre early on in his career, Dre signed him as an in-house producer to Aftermath Records, where he continued to develop and hone his skills. Over the years, he has gone on to write and produce songs and albums with Eminem, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Usher, Big Sean, Pink, Gwen Stefani, Logic, Anderson .Paak, A$AP Rocky, Celine Dion, and many others, winning his first Grammy for his work on Eminem’s 2010 album, Recovery.

In 2018, Khalil created the end title song “Elevate” for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. The film won the Academy Award for Best Animated Film, and the soundtrack album has sold over two million units, which has made him one of the most sought-after producers for film and television synchronization.

BIG SEAN & HIS MOTHER MYRA ANDERSON LAUNCH WELLNESS VIDEO SERIES PRESENTED BY THE SEAN ANDERSON FOUNDATION TO COMMEMORATE MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH

Today, multi-platinum artist, entrepreneur and philanthropist, Big Sean, and his mother, Myra Anderson, have announced the launch of their wellness video series presented by their non-profit, the Sean Anderson Foundation. Beginning May 1st, a new video will be released every Saturday during the month of May at 12pm EST/9am PST to commemorate Mental Health Awareness Month. The videos will live on the Sean Anderson Foundation’s IGTV HERE and will also be featured on the Sean Anderson Foundation website HERE.

In each episode, Sean and Myra will have a 10 – 15-minute candid conversation surrounding a specific area of wellness. Topics include mindset, sleep/circadian rhythms, meditation, diet/exercise and the emotional freedom technique (EFT).

“I feel that Mental Health Awareness Month is the perfect time to talk with my mom about some of the things I have learned from her that have helped me along the way, and I hope will help others,” says Big Sean.

“Sean and I wanted to share some of the no or low-cost techniques that we have used over the years to help us attain and maintain emotional balance. In the future, we may do a deeper dive into some of these techniques and other tools that we use,” says Myra Anderson.

The Sean Anderson Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life for underserved youth and their families. Previously, the foundation hosted a Mental Health Awareness panel, which explored the narrative and stigma around mental health in the Black community. Throughout the past year, Sean and the foundation have engaged in a variety of initiatives to help those in need during these unprecedented times. Sean hosted virtual fundraisers to benefit COVID-19 response efforts, as well as partnered with McDonalds for their Black & Positively Golden Mentors Program. The Detroit native was recently appointed Creative Director of Innovation for the Detroit Pistons, where he and the foundation work with the team to create opportunities and programs in the Detroit area.

LOS ANGELES RAPPER DOM KENNEDY 
ANNOUNCES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED FORTHCOMING

STUDIO ALBUM “FROM THE WESTSIDE WITH LOVE III”

One of Los Angeles most sought out rappers, Dom Kennedy announces his release of From the Westside With Love III which follows the success off of his first and second release of From the Westside With Love. 

“From the Westside With Love” originally dropped as a mixtape in March 2010 and later in June 2011 came “From the Westside with Love II” which is the debut studio album for Dom Kennedy. The album features artists from Asher Roth, Mikey Rocks, Polyester, Big K.R.I.T., Casey Veggies, and Schoolboy Q. The album charted #19 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and #15 Billboard’s Independent Albums.

Dom Kennedy has taken over the rap game by storm by working with acts such as Kehlani, Big Sean, Hit-Boy, Nipsey Hussle, and more. With a forthcoming album set to release this Spring, Dom Kennedy is set to dominate 2021. 

“When I decided to release the first From the Westside with Love in March 2010, I wanted to prove to myself that I could make a body of work that would reach way beyond just my neighborhood in Los Angeles,” says Dom Kennedy. “It was a gut check for me to show my love for the genre of rap and what I could possibly bring to it. A year later we dropped “From the Westside with Love II” which many believe to be one of my best efforts. At this point in my career, I’m still in love with making great rap music. I decided to cement my true legacy with another gift, From the Westside with Love III.

About Dom Kennedy: 

Born in Los Angeles, CA, Dom Kennedy is an artist with a fiercely independent streak. With a style that pairs simple lyricism with a knack for narration, Kennedy took inspiration from rap legends such as DJ Quick, Tupac, and the Notorious B.I.G. Kennedy made his debut in 2008 with “25th Hour”, “From the Westside With Love” in 2010, and “The Original Dom Kennedy” in 2011. By this point, he had begun touring across the U.S. and internationally, playing a show in Djibouti, Africa. Not being able to find a fair deal to suit him, the talented MC instead started his own label, The OPM Company (Other People’s Money), which he has used to release his own albums as well as for others. “From the Westside With Love II” arrived in 2011 and was a success, hitting the top 100 of the Billboard 200 Album Chart. Kennedy shortly after released “The Yellow Album” with the lead single “My Type Of party”, this mixtape is regarded as an all-time favorite worldwide. From Kennedy himself, “my music has always been about evolution, results may vary but I have tried to remain responsible to what I was feeling at the time. I wouldn’t have lasted any amount of time without the fans, so I thank them. OPM till it’s over.”
