JEFF HAMILTON:
Jeff Hamilton began his career as a fashion designer in Paris France. When he arrived in the US he forced his way into the top fashion circles making a name for himself as the creative genius behind Guess? for Men. After leaving Guess? Jeff began designing leather jackets that were much more than articles of clothing. Simply stated: “they were pieces of art”. Soon, Jeff had athletes, entertainers and world leaders beating a path to his door for the pleasure of being draped in one of his remarkable designs. Before long Jeff expanded his idea into the world of sports culminating in the creation of a jacket line that became a must-have for athletes, celebrities and sports-fans alike.  Along the way people began to take notice of the aesthetic beauty of Jeff’s unique designs and workmanship with hand-cut leather appliqués, accented with finely tuned embroidery and occasionally fashioned with metal and or stone adornment. It was clear that these items were meant to be treasured forever, rather than worn till out-of-season.  Jeff ultimately took on a passion for designing specific pieces strictly as art. These earlier pieces generally acknowledged his love of sports icons such as Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan. Today, Jeff has expanded his collection to include tributes to the Legends of Rock including The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd, to name a few. HERE

Following the release of their acclaimed summer mixtape, Sixtape 2, rising LA hip-hop artists Blxst and Bino Rideaux drop the music video for their single “Pop Out.” Set in the streets of Los Angeles, the fast-paced visual shows the two South Central artists as they drive through the city, culminating in a late-night party.

“‘Pop Out’ was a good tone to start with because Sixtape 2 was highly anticipated,” says Blxst. “It was kind of a double meaning, speaking to a female but also speaking to our fans.”

“‘Pop Out’ is just a testament to the amount of time it took us to double back for Part 2 as well as coming out of a pandemic,” says Bino Rideaux. “They been waiting on this and we have too. So we had to pop out one time.”

Serving as the highly anticipated sequel to the 2019 release of Sixtape, which helped establish both artists as two of the West Coast’s must-watch talents, the release of Sixtape 2 has been met with both critical and fan acclaim, with over 20 million streams to date. Debuting at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #117 on the Billboard Top 200, the project hit #4 on the Apple iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap Top Albums Chart, as well as #8 on Spotify’s Top 10 Album Debuts Chart in the US. Blxst and Bino celebrated the release with an interactive fan experience hosted by Rotation, Amazon Music’s global Hip-Hop and R&B brand. Inspired by the music video for their hit single “Movie,” both artists were able to give back to their community, providing over 300 free car washes to attendees.

BLXST- NO LOVE LOST DELUXE

Fully solidifying his position as one of the must-watch artists out of Los Angeles, hip-hop phenom Blxst has released the heavily anticipated deluxe release of his acclaimed debut EP, No Love Lost.

Out today via Red Bull Records, the multi-hyphenate continues his unstoppable run of hits with six new tracks, each showcasing his signature finesse, nimble lyricism, and soulful melodies. Tapping fellow West Coast heavyweights Ty Dolla $ign, Tyga, Dom Kennedy, and Bino Rideaux, the deluxe release of No Love Lost continues to explore the themes that laid the groundwork for its predecessor – loyalty, love, and life in the streets of Los Angeles.

Blxst has gathered raving reviews from many notable places. Pigeons & Planes said he is “A multi-dimensional artist who has a firm grasp on all facets of his solo work,” and LA Weekly it’s Blxst’s time to shine.

Still riding high off its success since its September release, No Love Lost has amassed over 30 million streams, debuting at #14 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums Chart and #8 on iTunes Top Albums for Hip-Hop/Rap, along with reaching #6 on Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 and #11 on Rolling Stone’s Trending 25 Charts for September. Paired with a cinematic series of videos to bring the project’s overarching narrative to life – with the final chapter, “Pressure,” out today – No Love Lost received praise from artists, tastemakers, and press alike.

As an artist and producer, respect for Blxst’s musical ability continues to grow. From self-editing his music videos and artwork to mixing and mastering his sound, these tools are what positions Blxst as an artist on the rise.

Blxst has recently shared his talent on Mozzy’s singles “I Ain’t Perfect”and “Streets Ain’t Safe,”as well as Bino Rideaux’s “Brand New.”The successful West Coast native has already gained notoriety from working with and producing for artists such as Kendrick Lamar, YG, Eric Bellinger, DJ Mustard, G Perico, Kalan. FrFr, and more.

Releasing No Love Lost earlier this year, the project is an expansive and emotive collection of music inspired by past relationships and his hometown of Los Angeles, paired with a cinematic series of music videos that brought the project’s overarching narrative to life.

BLXST RELEASES NEW EP

By Armon Hayes

In celebration, BLXST held a properly social distanced and invite-only listening forum last night in Santa Monica. During the friend & family event, the artist and producer shared his highly anticipated release, No Love Lost, out now! The EP, from the West Coast rapper-singer-songwriter under Red Bull Records, is an expansive and emotive collection of music inspired by past relationships and his hometown, LA. The EP is filled with instrumentation that fills the track with raw emotion—a vibe reminiscent of the legendary Nate Dog, and is accompanied by a four-part cinematic series of videos to bring the project’s overarching narrative to life.

No Love Lost’s quintessential West Coast vibe will be perfect to cruise to for a long time to come.

Imagine your windows rolled down, the sun shining while your speakers are on blast. Blxst’s sound fits right in—fluid musicality slides through the pocket between R&B and Hip-Hop seamlessly, complimented with just the right amount of swagger.

The EP has an edgy attitude and slick soul lyrics that will appeal to all ears and generations. Starting with the release of his latest single, “Overrated,” Blxst speaks on love’s risk and the expectations that we and society place on relationships unexpectedly not living up to our idealized expectations.  “Hurt,” on the other hand, is a mirror of life experiences, and specifically the processes of overcoming obstacles and what we learn from said trials. 

Blxst is a multi-hyphenated, multi-threat talent. He initially earned notoriety for his production work and collaborations with artists like Kendrick Lamar, YG, Mozzy, G Perico, Eric Bellinger, Bino Rideaux, and more. His recent singles, including “My Emotions” and “Slip & Slide (feat. 1takejay)”, garnered praise from DJ Akademiks, Bibi Bourelly, TIDAL’s Elliott Wilson, and more
