The show comes just one week after the release of their newest single “Flipside” and the announcement of Are We Going Too Slow deeply intimate collection of songs, written and recorded while frontman Max Reichert battled bone cancer which will be out November 5 via AWAL.

Joining previous singles “Heartbroke” and “Weekend”, “Flipside” contrasts happy-go-lucky arrangements that pull you in with introspective lyrics that make you think by using emotional and provocative storytelling that A1234 says “fuse sadness and joy together “and “manages to speak directly to you no matter what mood you’re in.”

Clubhouse is five best friends forged from a middle school garage band in Columbus, Ohio made up of Max Reichert and twin brothers Ari and Zak Blumer plus Michael Berthold and Forrest Taylor; who they met in college. The eclectic group gained early notoriety in the greater Midwest, garnering millions of streams and performing sold-out shows across the tri-state area. Since then, they’ve built a cult following, landed on countless playlists, and shared the stage with HAIM, Bastille, Young The Giant, and more.

MBK ENTERTAINMENT — MBK THE NEXT GENERATION

BROADCAST WEEKLY ON CLUBHOUSE

The team responsible for developing and launching the careers of everyone from the legendary Alicia Keys to Academy Award winner H.E.R. and more, MBK Entertainment, will identify, elevate and break the hottest superstars of tomorrow via its new reality competition series, MBK The Next Generation. The show provides a platform for up-and-coming artists to vie for a combination grand prize of a management deal with MBK Entertainment and a recording contract with MBK/RCA Records.

As a trusted artist management company and multimedia firm, MBK Entertainment filled a void during the Global Pandemic. Even with the world shutdown, they launched a series of artist showcases across Instagram and Clubhouse last year, eliciting a fervent response from audiences and giving new artists a stage when they needed it the most. This concept evolved into MBK The Next Generation. The series airs weekly on Clubhouse. For the first round, artists enter by auditioning on social media. If they advance, the second round happens in-person for a panel of industry visionaries, including MBK Entertainment C.E.O./Chairman Jeff Robinson, UMPG Senior VP Walter Jones, GRAMMY and Academy Award-winning singer and songwriter Tiara Thomas, MBK Entertainment Artist Manager Jason Hobdy, MBK Entertainment Artist A&R Jordan Chatman, Epic Records artist LONR., RCA Records artist Tone Stith, and Roc Nation artist Maeta.

Each entrant receives maximum visibility by simply appearing on what promises to be one of music’s hottest new series. The victor lands a life-changing deal.

MBK Entertainment remains committed to artist development in its truest form. The company ignited and galvanized the careers of roster alumni such as Alicia Keys, Elle Varner, Tyrese, Keyshia Cole and more. Meanwhile, current clients include H.E.R., Tiara Thomas, LONR., Maeta, Jourden Cox, Abigail Furr and Tone Stith. Recently, H.E.R. took home an Academy Award in the category of Best Original Song for “Fight For You” in addition to picking up “Song of the Year” for “I Can’t Breathe” and “Best R&B Song” for “Better Than I Imagine” [with Robert Glasper & Meshell Ndegeocello] at the 2021 GRAMMY Awards.

MBK Entertainment also continues to make headlines. Rolling Stone featured President/Managing Partner Jeanine McLean-Williams, while Billboard named Jeff Robinson Executive of the Week” earlier this spring.

Get ready for MBK Entertainment to introduce The Next Generation in 2021.

Markice Moore Q&A

By: Emily Bunn

The most sought-after ‘bad guy’: Markice Moore is a rising force to be reckoned with in Hollywood’s entertainment industry. Most notably recognized for his role as Ray Ray on the hit seriesSnowfall,” Moore is continuing to flesh out his acting resume with his upcoming involvement with 50 Cent’s show on Starz, “Black Mafia Family.” “Black Mafia Family” tales place in the late 1980s and is based on the story of two brothers, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, who had been involved in money laundering and drug trafficking schemes. We sat down with the rising star to discuss the relevance of “Black Mafia Family”’s themes in the present, Moore’s method acting experiences, upcoming music releases, and more.

Where were you when you received the call to join the cast of “Black Mafia Family”?

I was in Las Vegas at the craps table and I just lost $200. So when my manager called it was the best news ever!

What are you most excited about regarding your involvement in “Black Mafia Family”?

I’m most excited about working with 50 Cent again after working on “The Oath” with him for Crackle. His name rings bells in Hollywood now, so it’s an honor to be attached to his brand.

How do you feel about being popularly cast into roles as antagonists or villains?

Wow! I’m popularly casted! That’s kind of cool. I fucking love it! I love playing the bad guy, I mean, I think we all kind of relate to the bad guy. Some of us just don’t have the balls to do what he does, you know. To commit to antagonizing is a skill set.

What has been your favorite role you’ve ever played, and why?

Ryan Payne on The Paynes was my favorite character because he was so goofy and a nitwit. Even my mother called and told me, “You’re really acting now, Ryan is a dumb ass.”

Both “Snowfall” and “Black Mafia Family” revolve around crime and drugs in the 1980s. Can you speak on the relevance of these themes within the shows as still existing today?

Well if we may go a little deep, I believe it’s important to touch on these topics because our culture, African American culture, has been systematically targeted so heavily by oppressors using tactics like drugs and violence as conduits to control our narrative. It’s important that we take some of that power back and tell our sides of those stories. They use their mediums to paint a picture of us as only drug dealers, instead of humanizing us like they do their heroes.

How did your experience living in Atlanta compare to the experiences illustrated in your involvement with the film, “ATL”?

It was literally the same. At the time of filming I was hustling, bootlegging liquor, and playing with guns. My Austin character kept me out of trouble.

Following your 2020 release of “Nervous,” are you looking to put out any more music soon?

Yes. Absolutely. I am one half of a rap group called Pool Boys.  We are releasing more new music this summer. Right now, we have “Nervous,” “Cold,” and another record called Clubhouse that’s going crazy!

Are there any other upcoming acting projects you’re working on to come in 2021 that you can tell us about?

Yes! I have a production company called, “TABLE READ PRODUCTIONS” and we are working on a movie made by people in the clubhouse called, “Green Bean Me.” So, be on the lookout for that.

DBYB Fest Promotional Poster

The Don’t Block Your Blessings Festival

Out of loss and adversity emerges an uplifting global project and festival, led by Erez Safar (who produces under the name h2the), in honor of his late mother, “Frida Levona bat Shalom”.

“I lost my mom to cancer two months ago,” Safar shared, “and the pain was so intense, I knew I had to do something with it. My mom had an incredible light inside her and navigated the world with hope and positivity. I realized the best way to honor her memory would be to turn that pain and darkness I was feeling into a light that I could share with others. So I put together this project called ‘Don’t Block Your Blessings’ (DBYB), and I hope it can become a space for people to share wisdom for leading better, happier lives.”  

Safar comes off as warm, playful, and relaxed as he speaks with me over video chat, from his LA apartment. He tells me he looks at the DBYB platform as a form of “Cheat Codes To Happiness,” where people can trade stories as they navigate the ups and downs of life, and share how they have been able to bring more blessings into their lives via perspective, faith and gratitude. In addition to live-stream festivals (the next of which will take place this month), the project also lives on the site here, as well as an active discussion and healing space on the new and wildly popular mobile app, Clubhouse. 

Don’t Block Your Blessings (DBYB) first launched two months ago, with a one of a kind live-stream festival by the same name, featuring musicians, artists, and some of the most innovative minds in self-growth and healing. The DBYB Festival is hosted on an exclusive virtual platform, which boasts three interactive rooms and allows festival-goers to easily move from room to room, as then explore various talks, musical performances, and the creation of visual art, live in real-time.

This is not the first time Safar has wowed with his creative approach to online events. His first live-stream festival, Lo-Freq Fest, was featured in Billboard and shared around the globe. The debut DBYB festival featured over 40+ world-wide presenters with 25,774 viewers.

The next festival will be free to attend virtually and is set to take place on Valentine’s (Sunday, February 14th), between 6-9 pm PST.

The festival will feature contemporary artists, musicians, and teachers in the fields of self-growth and healing. Presenters include: 

Alicia Dunams

The founder of Bestseller in a Weekend, Dunams has helped more than 1500 leaders write books. She is also a leadership trainer, executive coach and certified peacemaker. She will be presenting in the healing room “The Slippery Slope vs. The Conscious Climb – Managing Our Unconscious Bias.”

Dr. Aparajita (AJ)

A social psychologist, a diversity and inclusion consultant, a certified life and executive coach, an author, a speaker, an immigrant, and a two-time traumatic brain injury survivor. She will be presenting in the healing room “Making Your Invisible Visible for Happiness.”

The Boom Bap Kids

Purveyors of funk and hip hop, founders Woes Martin, Silent John, and Mike Steel will be bringing their fabric puppetry and beats to the festival.

Shantala

Founders Benjy and Heather Wertheimer have been leading kirtan (sacred chanting) worldwide since 2001. They are known for their special gift of bringing audiences into a vast and loving experience through their unique blend of exquisite voices accompanied by instruments of India and the west. In 2020 alone, their music has garnered over 14 million streams.

Bomani X

The face of Clubhouse and the host of its #CottonClub, Bomani X is an artist in every sense of the word, a guitarist, singer songwriter, and a celebrity digital strategist who has worked with Jill Scott, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Wyclef, and more.

B Hill

A lifelong passionate artist and designer. Native to Harlem-New York City, Hill now exhibits and paints live, showcasing her nine-year figurative subject matter: “A Woman’s perspective.” In conjunction with her exhibitions, she directs an international art education foundation, “Art Education with B. Hill”, which brings art curriculum to underserved schools and communities. She will be joining the festival’s Live Art room.

Bugatti Baby II

The Bugatti Owners’ Club and The Little Car Company announced a new partnership Wednesday following the release of The Little Car Company’s Bugatti Baby II.

With this partnership, the Bugatti Owners’ Club gives its stamp of approval to the Bugatti Baby II, giving it certified status and hopefully building the foundation for a long and successful relationship.

Based at the Prescott Hill Climb in the UK, the Bugatti Owners’ Club was founded in 1929 and has more than 2,000 members.  It is the oldest club for the marque in the world.

This partnership will allow members of the two organizations to connect and share their passions for cars, design and engineering. It will also offer the chance for members to get together at events at the Bugatti Owners’ Club clubhouse.

The Bugatti Baby II is a remastering of the original Bugatti Baby. It preserves the history of Bugatti while also inspiring a new generation of Bugatti fans and enthusiasts.

Gemma Price, the general manager of the Bugatti Owners’ Club said she is delighted to work with The Little Car Company.

“We are looking forward to working with The Little Car Company closely and developing a strong partnership centered around the excellence of Ettore Bugatti’s design and engineering prowess that has proven to be visionary and timeless throughout the decades,” Price said. “This has been exceptionally captured and reimagined with the Bugatti Baby II and we look forward to celebrating this common affection through the development of the association of our two organizations.”

The first Bugatti Baby was created in 1926. Ettore Bugatti and his son decided to build a half-scale version of he Type 35 for Ettore’s youngest son’s fourth birthday. It was expected to be a one-off, but it received positive feedback, so the car went into production. 500 units were made between 1927 and 1936.

The Bugatti Baby II is based on a digital 3D scan of a Lyon GP car, so the handling is authentic. The handling can be adjusted because of adjustable dampers, which you can see an example of by clicking right here.

It also has replicas of the original Type 35’s instruments but with modern practicality. The fuel pressure gauge is now a battery gauge. Also, the oil gauge has been transitioned to a power gauge, which is a nod to the Bugatti Veyron.

It is also 75% scale of the Type 35 and can go from zero to 60 kph in six seconds, depending upon the weight of the driver. It tops out at 70 kph, and only 500 will be made.

Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, said the Bugatti Owners’ Club has been incredibly supportive in the process.

“As custodians of Ettore Bugatti’s legacy we knew their approval would always be the hardest to earn, a remarkable undertaking that we are incredibly proud to have achieved. We are honoured that with this partnership we are able to help ensure that the extraordinary craftsmanship of Ettore lives on to be enjoyed for the generations to come,” Hedley said.
