Gashi album Elevators launched via 360 MAGAZINE.

GASHI – ELEVATORS

Genre-bending artist GASHI returns with his highly-anticipated new album Elevators, out now via RCA RecordsElevators marks the acclaimed musician’s first record in two years, following the release of 1984 in 2020.

Marking the next step in his sonic evolution as an artist, as well as paving the way for what fans can expect from him next, Elevators is an expansive yet intimate body of work that examines many of GASHI’s own personal life experiences while delving into sonic influences of hip-hop, R&B, electronic, and more. Inspired by GASHI’s fear of elevators, the 14-track album finds the artist confronting his past demons and relationships, conquering his fears in order to come back stronger than ever before.

Says GASHI of the release, “when I was eight years old and living in Austria, I got stuck in an elevator for over three hours. My first album was called ‘Stairs’ because I’ve lived my life always taking the longer and harder way up. I’ve been in the game now since 2009 and I have achieved things that I never could have dreamt being possible, but I am not where I want to be yet. We all have demons and fears in life that dictate our everyday decisions, and the hardest thing to do is to silence them so that we can live the life that we are destined to live.”

“I’ve learned that life begins on the other side of fear. On the other side of conquering your demons and letting go of your past or trauma. And that’s why this album, ‘Elevators,’ will be a significant turn in my life. I am finally taking control so that I can elevate to the level of success required for me to make a difference in this world. It’s time to go inside the elevator and press up.”

GASHI absorbed a melting pot of musical influences throughout his youth, resulting in the formation of his unique sonic palette. His dynamic sound has allowed GASHI to collaborate with a wide range of talents, including Chris Brown, Travis Scott, Sting, Dua Lipa, and more.

Black Eyed Peas ninth album Elevation launched via 360 MAGAZINE.

BEP – ELEVATION

Multi-platinum and six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, genre-bending pioneers Black Eyed Peas proudly present their anxiously awaited ninth full-length album, ELEVATION, out now. Listen to ELEVATION HERE.

The 15-track juggernaut kaleidoscopically spins together hip-hop, Latin, R&B, electronic, trap, and more into a larger-than-life vision of what pop can be in the 21st century without boundaries or borders. From the jump, uncontainable energy surges through this bold body of work. “MUEVELO” [feat. Anuel AA & Marshall Jefferson] glides along on bright keys and big handclaps offset by robotic transmissions, a command to “Move your body,” and a promise “We stay lit forever.  Elsewhere, “Dance 4 U” hinges on a slick bass line and punchy groove. The sample on “Jump” predicts the reaction perfectly, “Somebody said when you play this song all the girls will go loca. The kinetic stomp of “Firestarter” leaves flames in the wake of its incendiary vocals. The group shine brighter than ever.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Black Eyed Peas teased out ELEVATION with “SIMPLY THE BEST” [with Brazilian global pop superstar Anitta El Alfa]. It has already generated over 2.9 million Spotify streams and 18 million YouTube views on the music video. Earning critical acclaim, mxdwn asserted, ‘Simply The Best’ acts as clear proof to fans that Black Eyed Peas remain just as capable of creating fun and energizing party tracks as they have been since their 1995 formation, and That Grape Juice fittingly summed it up as “a global affair.

Right out of the gate, “SIMPLY THE BEST” rides luminous dancefloor-ready keys towards a chantable chorus, “No it don’t get better than, better than this.” Black Eyed PeasAnitta, and El Alfa trade verses back and forth, unlocking undeniable and unbreakable chemistry. At the same time, Anitta infuses the track with Brazilian swagger, El Alfa turns up with Dominican Republic flavor, and Black Eyed Peas exude laidback Los Angeles confidence in between these global rhythms. The visual continues a tradition of larger-than-life videos for the group as well. Once again, they pull out all the stops.

ELEVATION finds Black Eyed Peas expanding the collective musical consciousness and pushing boundaries yet again (like only they can). Of course, they bring a few friends along for this rollercoaster ride. The group link up with Daddy Yankee on the reggaeton banger “BAILAR CONTIGO, while Nicky Jam ignites the funkified “GET DOWN” with fresh fire. Then, there’s “FILIPINA QUEEN” where they team up with J. Rey Soul and deliver an inimitable and irresistible bop. Nicole Scherzinger lends her powerhouse pipes to “NO ONE LOVES ME, and Black Eyed Peas and Ozuna close out the album together on the universally-resounding “L.O.V.E.”

They initially teased ELEVATION with the international smash “DON’T YOU WORRY” [with Shakira David Guetta]. It has already gathered more than 111 million Spotify streams and 113 million YouTube views on the music video. Meanwhile, it catapulted into the Top 40 at AC, in the Top 30 of the iTunes Top Pop Songs Chart, and Top 50 of the Shazam U.S. Top 200. Beyond recent acclaim from BillboardNME, and more, the group also recently performed on ABC network’s Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in Central Park.

It is ELEVATION season for Black Eyed Peas. Join them on the next level!

ABOUT BLACK EYED PEAS:

Black Eyed Peas continue to fulfill a master plan to push the game forward devised way back in 1995. They execute each stage of this plan with focus and intent, allowing their evolution to play out in real-time over a series of game-changing albums, beginning with Behind The Front [1998] through Bridging The Gap [2000], Elephunk [2003], Monkey Business [2005], The E.N.D. [2009], The Beginning[2010], Masters of the Sun, Vol. 1 [2018], and, most recently TRANSLATION[2020]. Along the way, co-founders will.i.amApl.de.Ap, and Taboo have set music industry records that will probably never be exceeded, moved north of 35 million albums and 120 million singles, gathered six GRAMMY® Awards, and headlined the Super Bowl, the World Cup, and F1 races. The multi-platinum group launched the comeback of the decade after eight years of dormancy. The future matters the most to these trailblazers, which brings us to their 2022 blockbuster ninth full-length, Elevation [Epic Records]. The 15-track opus represents another logical step and the dawn of a new phase, boasting the smash “DON’T YOU WORRY” [feat. Shakira David Guetta] and collabs with Daddy YankeeNicky JamAnuel AA, OzunaNicole Scherzinger, and more.

About the record, will.i.am comments, “We were behind the front, then we bridged the gap. We rode an elephant’s back to realize the industry was full of monkey business. That was the end, but the end is new beginnings. Becoming masters of the sun, mastering the industry, we realized we had to have translation in this complex world. But we be falling up, and never falling down. Black Eyed Peas is known for elevation. This is the next stage for us, reaching higher.”

ABOUT YUNG GRAVY:
Only the best things get better with age—wine, whisky, cheddar, beef, 401ks, and the list goes on. Yung Gravy gets better with age too.

It’s perpetually youthful, and it oozes “sauce. As such, Yung Gravy blends “cool” and “fun” by using his own recipe and bringing originality and positivity to a genre that is overflowing with the opposite. In the fall of 2016, Matthew Hauri was a full-time student at University of Wisconsin, Madison. At the time, he introduced the world to “Yung Gravy, a mysterious, faceless figure—only recognizable for his unique musical style and use of vintage ads for album artwork. In the span of six short years, Gravy has transformed from Soundcloud stalwart to platinum powerhouse. To date, his accolades include two platinum and four gold singles as well as nearly 10 sold out tours of North America, Europe, and Australia. He has collaborated with his self-proclaimed musical heroes, including Lil BabyLil WayneChief Keef, Juicy JT-Pain, and the late Young Dolph. He was given an honorary Stanley Cup ring from the Tampa Bay Lightning and starred in a worldwide commercial campaign with Martha Stewart. For all of the swagger and style he exhibited upon his arrival, he somehow got even smoother since introducing himself back in 2016. After streams in the billions, packed venues, and “side missions” with Martha Stewart, he stirs up his tastiest sauce yet on his 2022 third full-length opus, Marvelous [Republic Records] introduced by the chart-topping gold-certified single “Betty.”

Kado the rapper inside 360 Magazine

KADO – Never Lost A Gun Fight (Allegedly)

Boston-Based Lyricist Hundred Round Kado Releases Never Lost A Gun Fight (Allegedly) a brick-laced bar-for-bar symphony of cohesive hood poetry

There is a throwback quality to Boston-based lyricist Hundred Round Kado whose name means “gift” in his native language, Haitian Creole. He embodies a revolutionary and emotionally raw spirit reminiscent of the Golden Age of hiphop; aggressiveness mixed with deep introspection. However the emerging underground MC, the byproduct of systemic racism, violence and poverty, was heavily influenced by trap music (Gucci, Jeezy, T.I., Boosie, ZRo, Playa Fly). This versatility is a testament to his superpower – being able to articulate his experiences into words without creative compromise. 

At 32 years-old, Hundred Round Kado has spent one-third of his existence behind bars yet his passion for rap has never wavered; if anything, it has intensified. The evidence can be found on his latest body of work, Never Lost A Gun Fight (Allegedly). Artfully executed, Hundred Round Kado 11th release is a tightly-wrapped 14-song tracklist with varied moods and masterfully narrated by Charlie Masheen who shines seamlessly. The title single is cathartic ghetto gospel that opens with Masheen’s thought-provoking spoken word laying the energetic groundwork for Hundred Round Kado to spit his soul baring truths over a sparse soundscape. On records like “Gratitude,” “Dead Person” and “9 And A Nina,” there’s a soulful rap&b vibe as the MC flawlessly flows atop melodic basslines, while cuts like “Boolin In The Kut” and “Bring Your Skale” find Hundred Round Kado showcasing his ability for cinematic storytelling. Each track is thorough enough to stand on its own yet as a whole, Never Lost A Gun Fight (Allegedly) is a brick-laced bar-for-bar symphony of cohesive hood poetry. It took over a decade of growth; highs and lows, lock ups and freedom, death and life for Hundred Round Kado to produce the autobiographical content found on the project. From subject matter ranging from legal woes and street politics to relationship struggles and spiritual breakthroughs, Hundred Round Kado’s young OG reputation was earned. “I don’t rap, I make my life rhyme,” says Kado about why he makes music.

Over the last few months, Hundred Round Kado has managed to drop back-to-back music videos for tracks from Never Lost A Gunfight (Allegedly), all while being confined to house arrest. The ability to hone in on the art and focus is seen in the outcome of the visuals; they don’t follow conventional scripts. In the video for the single “Dededede,” the dynamic rapper shows himself as somewhat of a bibliophile as the camera pans across his bedroom bookshelf showcasing the works of literary icons like Toni Morrison, Octavia Butler and Zora Neale Hurston. This collection of female authors might seem somewhat of an anomaly for a gang member currently out on bail while awaiting trail for a gun charge (allegedly), but Hundred Round Kado is a rare breed.

On the strength of personal and professional respect, multi-Grammy winning artist Malik Yusef introduced Hundred Round Kado to Roc Nation artist Vic Mensa when he was on the 4:44 Tour with Jay Z in 2017. The connection proved to be mutually invaluable. “Hundred Round Kado is one of the most talented lyricists I know,” says Mensa. “The elite level of his wordplay is probably only trumped by the gravity of his story, which is literally breathtaking; born in federal prison, it’s a miracle he’s still alive and has been able to transmute his pain into passion. Kado really held me down in some tough times when I had a lot of people out for me, but it wasn’t until 2021 when he was locked up facing life that our relationship became what it is today. In those 8-9 months, I sent him nearly 40 books ranging from James Baldwin to Eckhart Tolle and saw this miraculous transformation take place in him as he really began to harness his innate power to build, as opposed to destroy. A lot of these verses he spit for me when he was doing his time and it always gave me inspiration to go harder.” 

Known as the Godfather of New England, Hundred Round Kado has a head for entrepreneurship and a heart for service. The strategic businessman has a portfolio of investments alongside his astute partner Alabama Jones that encompass a barbershop, hair salon, clothing store, studio and art gallery. Living up to the meaning of his name, Kado is truly a gift. A marginalized outsider who became an insider against all odds, including a 20 year history within the criminal justice system, the intelligent artist doesn’t know what his future holds. However, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and creatively-speaking, he’s free.

RISING NEWCOMERS JORDAN WARD & JOONY SAY “IDC” IN NEW SINGLE

Jordan Ward To Perform At Soho Warehouse in Los Angeles Next Week

Buzzy R&B tastemakers Jordan Ward (ARTium Recordings/Interscope Records) & Joony leap into their next era with today’s release of the smooth new single, “IDC”. The two collab on the floating, lo-fi melodic track as they trade carefree verses about letting their ex’s exit their lives. Lo-fi also colors the song’s official music video, in which the pair comically run into their exes but get the last laugh as they run through New York City. 

Watch the full video HERE.

“IDC” builds on the momentum that Jordan scored with last year’s Remain Calm EP and the millions of streams it produced. The five-track collection put the St. Louis native’s versatility on full display, swapping from rap bars on “Steph” to the R&B gem “Couscous.” Storied publications took notice, with Billboard highlighting the latter track as “a deliciously layered deep cut,” while HotNewHipHop praised the EP overall as a “short but very sweet” effort. Soon after the EP’s release, Jordan gifted fans his Lil Baby Doc, a six-minute documentary that reveals an intimate look at Jordan’s creative process in the studio while enjoying life with his friends. Watch HERE. Plus, as part of the single’s release celebration, Jordan will perform a showcase at the exclusive Soho Warehouse in Los Angeles on Oct. 10. 

As he steps his new era, Jordan Ward continues to draw acclaim as one of R&B’s rising stars. While his 2017 debut EP, A Peak at the Summit, made noise, his clear breakthrough came with his 2019 project, Valley Hopefuls. It was propelled by his single “Okok (Hibachi)” and “Sandiego,” which was produced by singer Arin Ray and music producer heavyweight No ID. Now, with more than 25 million streams and counting, Ward’s silky croons and elevated songwriting pen are sharper than ever and ready to launch him to even greater heights in the R&B realm.

Establishing himself through a series of EPs and full-length albums, Joony amassed a substantial audience before his placement on Brent Faiyaz‘s chart-topping album, Wasteland. Joony’s verse on “FYTB” was a standout moment on the project and marked Joony’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100. The poignant record came on the heels of his critically acclaimed album, Pretty In Black. After the release of Pretty In Black (Deluxe), the 22-year-old rapper asserted himself in 2022’s album of the year consideration.

Chanel West Coast attends CLMBR event IN WeHo via 360 MAGAZINE.

CLMBR Fitness

CLMBR is a vertical exercise machine that works on both the upper and lower body, “…the best kind of primal movements that a person can do,” according to founder Avrum Elmakis, who was on hand to host the event.

CLMBR Fitness celebrated its elaborate grand opening in West Hollywood on Thursday. Chanel West Coast dazzled the crowd on the red carpet with her curvaceous baby body. She wasn’t the only head-turner at this immersive activation. Other notable guests were invited: Luke Rockhold, Dom Fenison, Carter Jenkins, Maximilian Acevedo, Brandon Graves, artist James Goldcrown, Bunnie Barbie, CJ Hammond, Hari Tahov, Jules Liesl, B. Thompson, Nick Pfeifer, Shaka Smith, Nicole Steen, Skinner Jones, Lucas Dell, and Logan Noh.

While Team CLMBR demonstrated cutting-edge technology and equipment, many guests indulged in generous servings of libations and vegan bite-sized Mexican tapas, provided by Sugar Taco. A variety of adult beverages were served: Lobos 1707 Tequila, Nue Vodka, and Henderson Whiskey. Caliwater cactus and PATH water were among the non-alcoholic beverages available.

This workout is a low-impact, total-body routine designed by some of the most prominent members of the entertainment industry. And, obviously, it was fabricated for the affluent, high-powered executives who have little time for anything less than results: Jay Z, LeBron James, Pitbull, Ryan Seacrest, Oliver Trevena, and Novak Djokovic.

This cutting-edge facility, located directly above the once-disheveled Ramada Hotel in Santa Monica, will provide group and one-on-one instruction to the health-conscious consumer. With memberships priced just under $3,000, it’s already in direct competition with rival fitness clubs like SoulCycle and Equinox.

Post-pandemic, those clubhouses have been plagued by poor management, daunting customer service, and dwindling amenities, leaving the market wide open for new entrants.
