Lil Boat 3 Release

22-year old Atlanta native, Grammy-nominated singer, rapper, producer, creative designer, branding genius and fashion icon Lil Yachty smashed onto the scene four years ago with his debut mixtape Lil Boat. Its sound was prophetic, creating a new wave of hip hop while laying out the blueprint for many of today’s most popular rap stars to follow. The 2018 follow up, Lil Boat 2, peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200. Today, Lil Yachty has released the third and final installment of the famed Lil Boat series; Lil Boat 3. 

His latest mixtape ushers in a new era for the rapper, showcasing his growth as both an artist and a man. Alongside the album release, Yachty shared a new music video for “Demon Time” feat. Draft Day. With features from A$AP Rocky, Tyler The Creator, Future, Young Thug, Lil Durk, Lil Keed, Drake, DaBaby, Tierra Whack and more, the highly anticipated 19-track studio album pays respects to the fun-loving Lil Boat while making clear that Yachty’s sound is ever-evolving.

With the trilogy now coming to a close, Lil Yachty unleashes a sound that effortlessly and constantly bounces between rap to pop creating something entirely his own.

LISTEN HERE

MORE NEW MUSIC FROM TM88 COMING SOON 

Today, GRAMMY Award-nominated powerhouse producer, artist, DJ, and Taylor Gang affiliate TM88 drops “Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO).” Listen HERE.

The track comes in hot following TM88 producing “P2” off of Lil Uzi Vert’s  Billboard Top 200 number 1 album, Eternal Atake in addition to following up from TM88 & Smokepurpp’s joint single “RR.”

“Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO)” has a late-night cruising vibe to it. The track features fellow Atlanta native, MadeinTYO, known for his hit “Uber Everywhere,” rapping about the ladies and foreign cars encountered in a night out in Tokyo over TM88’s tranquil yet vigorous beats.

“I really wanted to bring the feel of a real Tokyo night to life racing through the neon light streets with a couple of beautiful women and just living the night of my life with my bro MadeinTYO,” says TM88.

The track came together organically at TM88’s home studio in LA when he was cooking up beats with all of his homeboys around -Southside, Travis Scott, Trinidad James, Sheck Wes, and Wheezy. TM88 recalls MadeinTYO pulled up and was ready to work after the duo already made 8 songs together that week. The rest was history. TM88 is a staple in the Atlanta trap scene and hip-hop.

As an artist he holds over 70 million streams and has collaborated with Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Future, Juicy J, Gunna, Moneybagg Yo, Wiz Khalifa, Project Pat, Lil Yachty, Valee and more. Under his belt, TM88 has production credits building an impressive discography of both superstars and rising rappers from Drake “Company”, to 21 Savage “Drip”, to Travis Scott “Nothing but Net” to the late XXXTENTACION “going down!”. Not to mention TM88’s somber infused beats are a key component to Lil Uzi Vert’s global smash-hit “XO Tour Llif3.”

The record is currently seven-times platinum certified from the RIAA. Cementing himself as a singular voice within Atlanta, TM88 maintains his position at the forefront of the pack. In fact, he does more than just influence the style of his hometown; he regularly pushes it to level up. He went from selling beats for $40 a pop at 12-years-old to co-founding 808 Mafia and eventually arriving as a solo musical force on the heels of a string of smashes.

“TM88 (is) serving as one of the hottest track makers in the industry now”

“(A) hitmaker”

“Atlanta’s finest” 

“The producer’s enchanting beats have served as the base to a plethora of hits along the years if you check the liner notes”

We had left Trippie Redd in Topanga, the visual from A Love Letter To You 3 (at almost 10 million views) where he was a cult leader. He hadn’t amassed the following he has today and the video for Under Enemy Arms shows the scale of the following Trippie has amassed and the power that comes with that. In the narrative he’s turned into a powerful demonic leader. This evolution shows the major transformation Trippie Redd has undertaken with his sound, self, and vision.

Trippie Redd’s November 9, 2019, album A Love Letter To You 3 entered the Billboard Top 200 at, fittingly, number 3, and that week he held the title of the most streamed album in America.

T.I. Launches Tech Cypha

This February, Hip-Hop Entrepreneurs are making black history by advancing the technology industry. Clifford Harris Jr, known as “T.I.,” launches a new syndicated investment vehicle called Tech Cypha with business partner Jason Geter and Brandon “BL” Lewis; son of late great boxing promoter and entrepreneur Butch Lewis. Leveraging technologies such as Airbnb, Lyft and Lime through the eyes of hip-hop culture, the team also launched a Los Angeles-based entertainment startup called Culture Genesis. Together, the new collaborative investment strategy allows high-net-worth individuals to participate in trending tech startup deals.

The strategy evolved when Geter and Harris made their first investment 12 years ago into a company called Streetcred.com, a site that allowed fans to go online and share opinions about street culture. While that first deal didn’t work out, Geter and Harris maintained interest in the technology and startup scene to create opportunities for their networks and promote new businesses.

“We learned a lot,” says Harris. “Now, we know where our demographic is.”

For Geter, that demographic is taking advantage of Atlanta’s surging position as a cultural and technological mecca in the United States. Indeed, Atlanta-area startups raised roughly $1.15 billion in 2018, a record for the region, according to data from PitchBook and the National Venture Capital Association.

“Being in the city of Atlanta and with Georgia Tech producing so much talent, and coming from us being within the hip-hop culture, which is always influencing and promoting things, we saw an opportunity,” says Geter. “In the past, we were always looking through the glass window and looking at ways we can participate earlier. And that’s by coming together to pool our resources so we can invest more.”

Through informed mentorship programs and partnerships, Tech Cypha will include using influencers in various fields. Currently, the syndicate includes Lil Duval, Killer Mike, Tamika ‘Tiny’ Harris, Tai Green, Korey Roberson, Stephanie Shirley, and BJ Kerr among others. As an industry leader, Lewis is known for his talent in branding, marketing and partnership deals.

“Often times, we drive technology like social media and apps, but we are never apart of the ownership,” Lewis continues, “Tech Cypha is going to be an investment vehicle looking for promising, early and late-stage startups to invest capital in, assist with marketing and give branding directions. It’s our way of bridging the gap between the culture and technology.”
