BLACC ZACC ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM – “803 LEGEND”

Blacc Zacc aims to finish strong after an excellent 2020 campaign with his upcoming album 803 Legend. Slated to drop Oct. 23, the Carolina Narcos MC looks to tighten his grip on the trap world with his 13-track collection with features by Kevin Gates, 42 Dugg, Foogiano, Fat Loc, and more. To warm fans up, Zacc rewards listeners with his opulent single “Tennis,” where he skewers haters trying to downplay his status as a certified trap star. The celebratory ode oozes with soul, solidifying Zacc’s legendary position in his hometown of South Carolina. Listen HERE.

To commemorate his new single release, Zacc launched an E-commerce store for his “Tennis” merch for his devotees to go and purchase. Fans can pre-save 803 Legend ahead of Friday’s release date. Shop HERE.

Earlier this month, Zacc continued his lyrical onslaught on the rap game when he released his Carolina Narcos scorcher “Bang” with SCMG labelmate DaBaby. This year, the South Carolina upstart is also coming off his two fiery singles, including “803 Legend ” and “Let’s Get It,” which exhibited his steely bars and pandemic-proof swagger. Since his 11-track debut album Carolina Narcos‘ release, Blacc Zacc has emerged from the trenches with his trap-laden raps. Featuring his rap compatriots DaBaby, Moneybagg Yo, Yo Gotti, Stunna 4Vegas, fans have gravitated towards Zacc’s street appeal. The album also boasts production by Young Kio, OG Parker, Romano, and more.

Washington NFL Team Changes Name

By Gabriella Scerbo

Following hundreds of protests condemning racism, the Washington Redskins football team combat discrimination by changing their name. 

Much of the Native American experience has been one filled with hatred, violence, and disadvantage throughout U.S. history. The term “redskin” was a way to identify Native Americans from white colonizers in the 19th century. Today, with the derogatory term cheered in crowds, adorned on merchandise, and profited from by the NFL, the discrimination of Native Americans continues to be normalized. 

Corporations including Target and Nike have agreed to stop selling Washington Redskin merchandise if the name is not changed; Amazon has already taken to removing the team’s merchandise. Now, the team plans to change the mascot as well as any Native American imagery connected to the sports team.

Although the Washington Redskin name is more than eighty years old, it is better late than never to better the NFL. While the Washington football team may be first team at any national level in sports to change their racist name, they are hopefully not the last. Hopefully more companies will follow suit as the world continues to question the racist implications and origins of symbols in our society.

Queen & Slim: The Soundtrack

The first offerings from a merchandise line to accompany Queen & Slim: The Soundtrack (Motown Records) have been unveiled. The line includes a crewneck, short and longsleeve t-shirts, a cutout t-shirt, a photo t-shirt and a tote bag. A digital soundtrack will be delivered via email upon purchase of any item. Additional products will be released in the coming weeks. The soundtrack is available for download / streaming at all DSPs while the CD configuration can be purchased at Amazon and other retailers. Get Queen & Slim: The Soundtrack and merchandise HERE.

The Melody Ehsani flagship store in Los Angeles hosted an intimate Q&A with director Melina Matsoukas, hosted by Melody Ehsani and special guests. The ME. Shop will be selling limited edition Queen & Slim merchandise while supplies last. 

Starring Oscar® nominee Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Queen & Slim is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence. The film, from GRAMMY®-winning director Melina Matsoukas and Emmy®-winning writer Lena Waithe, is in theaters now.
The music in the film serves as an additional voice and showcases the range of talent across Black artists with a compelling blend of genres. The 16-song soundtrack, which was nominated for a Hollywood Music In Media AwardTM, features new tracks by Ms. Lauryn Hill, Lil Baby, Vince Staples featuring 6lack X Mereba, Tiana Major 9 & EARTHGANG, Coast Contra featuring BJ The Chicago Kid and Syd, plus classic songs by Roy Ayers, Bilal, Mike Jones and others. Blood Orange composed the film’s score and is featured on the soundtrack.

Motown Records President Ethiopia Habtemariam, Waithe and Matsoukas served as executive soundtrack producers. AP said, “Together they’re like the perfect aux-cord DJs. They hit play, and they don’t miss…” The Atlantic noted, “The Best Part of Queen & Slim Is the Soundtrack…Music is woven throughout with an impressive ear for black American artists’ complex relationships to the country they inhabit, and to other black people.” Refinery 29 praised it as “a high-octane ride with a tender heart – just like the movie it’s made for.” Variety hailed the album as “a bound-to-be-legendary hip-hop soundtrack.”

Essence called the first single, “Collide,” by Tiana Major9 & EARTHGANG, “the perfect introduction to an album that includes incredible names.” Produced by Benny Cassette (Kanye West, John Legend), the track was the #1 Most Added song at Urban AC Radio, topped Spotify’s The Newness playlist and has amassed over three million combined global streams. Watch Tiana Major9 & EARTHGANG performing “Collide” at the Soul Train ’19 Awards HERE.

NYLON predicted that “Ride or Die” from Megan Thee Stallion x VickeeLo “will be bumping in the club for months.” Pitchfork praised Vince Staples’ “Yo Love” feat. 6lack & Mereba as “a charming swerve from Staples that’s only further proof of the rapper’s chameleonic talents.” Rolling Stone said, “‘Guarding the Gates’…is an immersive and sprawling ballad…[Ms. Lauryn] Hill delivers a mesmerizing vocal performance.”
While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.
As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will discover themselves and each other in the most dire and desperate of circumstances and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.

Waithe wrote the screenplay for Queen & Slim from a story by herself and bestselling author James Frey (A Million Little Pieces, Katerina). The film is produced by Frey, Waithe, Matsoukas, Michelle Knudsen, Andrew Coles, Brad Weston and Pamela Abdy. The executive producers are Pamela Hirsch, Kaluuya, Aaron L. Gilbert and Jason Cloth. Universal Pictures and Makeready present Queen & Slim in association with 3BlackDot and Bron Creative, a Makeready/De La Revolución Films/Hillman Grad/3BlackDot production.

Printful

When Printful launched its print-on-demand/drop-shipping business in 2013, most competitors were traditional bulk-printing companies that weren’t built for one-off fulfillment of t-shirts and other products. Today, thanks to the e-commerce explosion and a savvy technology-focused business strategy, Printful is the largest company of its kind with three fulfillment centers in the U.S. and headquarters in Riga, Latvia and Charlotte, NC, a fourth that recently opened in Mexico, 500 employees, dozens of product options, and 800,000+ customers around the globe from artists and cause marketers to Twitter-preneurs like WeRateDogs that use merchandise to monetize their ventures.  

 

  • The company was founded by two young Latvians who couldn’t find an acceptable print-on-demand drop-shipping partner for a business they ran selling posters, clothing and other items with motivational quotes for entrepreneurs. 
  • It has doubled revenues every year since inception, fulfilled more than 10 million orders generating over $540 million for customers, and is still self-funded.
  • Features like 14 integrated e-commerce platforms (more than any competitor), API connectivity, and a mockup generator that creates store-ready product images help fuel business.
  • One-third of customers surveyed say their e-commerce storefront is a full-time gig, and three-quarters of the rest say they’re aiming to get there.

Chris Lake × Fisher

By Michelle Pisnoy × Vaughn Lowery

6,000 EDM-loving college students filed into the Shrine Expo Hall Thursday prepared to dance the night away. The floor and balcony were packed as Chris Lake and Fisher took to the stage at their sold out show. Throughout the evening, a horde of fans pulsed to every beat the B2B DJ’s created.

At 10:00 pm, the mob of music lovers got rambunctious in anticipation of their performance. Minutes afterwards, the lights were dimmed and the audience began to cheer. Bright lights flashed, the beat began to intensify and the EDM lovers got even rowdier. Fisher and Chris Lake came out and started to perform mixes of different songs. The duo kept the audience engaged by switching between different beats and songs like “Crowd Control.” As soon as the track commenced, the fans began jumping up and down as well as singing along to the lyrics.

Chris Lake then played hit song, “Turn Off the Lights,” featuring Alexis Roberts. The LED lighting technology was in succinct to every beat of the record. At times, almost blinded the hypersensitive congregation, but they didn’t appear to mind. The night came to a culmination when Fisher played “Losing It.” He added synthetic melodies which made it more enchanting than the studio version. The crowd absolutely lost it, singing at the top of their lungs until the lights turned back on.

This year, ComplexCon is focusing on the enlightenment and empowerment of the individual, reflecting the issues and conversations that permeate and influence culture today from entertainment to art to politics. ComplexCon unveiled a new logo, which incorporates Murakami’s modern interpretation of the ensō, an ancient zen symbol that represents the cycle of all creativity and life, from chaos to growth to enlightenment.

“There is a cycle to everything – art, culture, design, life – it’s always moving from present to future. ComplexCon has this cycle, where so many ideas are swirling, the atmosphere is charged with potential and from that energy, amazing ideas, new interpretations, and collaborations are formed and the cycle continues,” said Takashi Murakami. “There is chaos in the world right now but also an incredible movement of young people rising up to create something better and from that energy new ideas and movements are forming ripples through everything in culture. It was important to embrace this at ComplexCon this year.”

Fans told us and we listened! This year, ComplexCon is catering to fans with bigger, bolder, better experiences and activations. This third annual festival and exhibition will feature even more panels and speakers as part of the popular ComplexCon(versations) track in which today’s most significant cultural figures tackle the most important topics of our times.
