OMB Peezy of 300 entertainment releases new song via 360 Magazine

OMB Peezy – MisGuided

OMB Peezy delivers his highly-anticipated new project MisGuided today [via An Overkill Ent/ 300 Entertainment] for Gangsta Grillz’ latest installment hosted by DJ Drama. Including features from fellow heavy-weight artists, NLE ChoppaMorray, and G Herbo, Peezy rises to a pinnacle point with diamond-encrusted lyrical flexes and storytelling that certifies his artistic magnetic appeal. MisGuided is made available to stream on all music service platforms HERE

I came up with this title thinking about my childhood and the things I used to see as a kid. I saw things dat I didn’t know were wrong until later on in life. Things that the older people around me made seem cool or ‘The way of life’ as I always looked at it. Dat made me realize dat I’m not the only kid who went through this, it’s kids goin’ through this right now and don’t even kno. I just want to show them that they are being misguided before it’s too late.” 
– OMB Peezy

The sixteen-track mixtape is the product of the prodigious rising Rap star whose natural talent as an artist has thrived from self-growth, being a father, and in-studio collaborations with elite producers Murda Beatz (Drake, Gucci Mane), Hitmaka (Lil Wayne, Chris Brown), HicksMadeThat (Young Boy Never Broke, Yung Bleu) and more. In addition to the project acclaimed track, “Mufasa” featuring G Herbo, released earlier his year, MisGuided features an array of tracks that magnify the lack of education OG’s passed down to the youth as Peezy takes complete charge to end the cycle speaking from a newly adapted perspective from being a father. Peezy paints a vivid picture of the pain and struggle he’s faced leading to this point; however, in the end, proves that all trials eventually lead to triumphs. The project comes to a cinematic end with a triumphant, base-knocking outro reminiscent of nostalgic Rap splendor made to inspire and evoke the energy of the streets to the global masses. OMB Peezy turns a new page as once being MisGuided to standing tall masterfully in his craft and the man he’s become today.  

Slated to take his victory lap on the heels of his latest release, the Mobile, Alabama native prepares for this tour with  Kevin Gates via ‘Big Lyfe’ tour kicking off on 8/23/22. For additional tour information, visit HERE.

Anitta and Missy Elliott release song via 360 Magazine

Anitta × Missy Elliott

Continuing a massive year, history-making Brazilian global pop superstar Anitta serves up a sexy new single entitled “Lobby” with Missy Elliott. Listen to “Lobby” HERE and check out the video directed by Arrad HERE.

The “Lobby” video made its broadcast premiere this morning on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop and on the Paramount Times Square billboards. The track heralds the arrival of the Deluxe Edition of her critically acclaimed new album and Warner Records debut, Versions Of Me, on August 25.

Anitta initially teased “Lobby” with a clip on TikTok, inciting widespread anticipation from fans worldwide. On the track, a dancefloor-ready disco beat and thumping bassline give way to her instantly infectious chorus, “Kiss me from the roof to the lobby. Meanwhile, the legendary Missy Elliott pulls up with a classic verse highlighted by quotable double entendre and her inimitable flow. Anitta drummed up excitement with an early Instagram post of her and Missy Elliott where she admitted, “I honestly can’t believe what’s happening right now.

Earlier this month, she teased Versions of Me (Deluxe Edition) with the sizzling and seductive music video for the single “Gata.” In addition to trending on YouTube, it has already gathered over 4.5 million views and counting. Director Giovanni Bianco notably helmed the video.

Making headlines, Anitta garnered her career-first nomination for the MTV VMAs in the category of “Best Latin” for “Envolver.” She emerged as “the first Brazilian to be nominated for a solo project in the history of the VMAs.” Beyond the nod, she will make her “Envolver” broadcast performance premiere at the August 28 ceremony. Be sure to tune in!

Anitta has exceeded one benchmark after another during this historic year. She not only emerged as “the first female Brazilian solo act to perform at Coachella,” but she also earned a Guinness World Record as “the first Latin solo artist to reach #1 on the Spotify Daily Global 100” with “Envolver.” The latter also remains “the highest-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 by a Brazilian soloist this century.”

Beyond nearing 1 billion streams, Versions of Me has incited unanimous critical applause. In a 4-out-of-5 star review, Rolling Stone hailed it as a “Bewitching global dance-floor experience,”and Stereogum summed it up best, “Anitta is coming for all of your awards.” With another 4-out-of-5 star rating,  NME crowned it “a searingly ambitious affair from a star who knows exactly what she wants,” and Billboard proclaimed, “Versions of Me is both retrospective and reflective, where Anitta is nothing but an open book.”

Versions of Me has exploded as the ultimate global Latin music experience of 2022, and she’s about to unleash its definitive version next week.

In April, Anitta released Versions of Me to praise from the likes of The New York Times, and more. The 15-track album was released in Spanish, English, and Portuguese and holds the record of biggest streaming week for a Brazilian artist on Spotify, with over 40 million streams. Following the album’s release, Anitta performed at Coachella where, as Variety proclaimed,  she “wowed” the crowd with a 45-minute set that featured a “mind-boggling mixture of genres, emphasizing the Brazilian and Latin music that rose her to stardom.”

Anitta is managed by Brandon Silverstein/Founder of S10 Entertainment.

Machine Gun Kelly stars in Dolce&Gabbana casa home goods campaign via 360 MAGAZINE

MGK DG Casa

The Dolce&Gabbana Casa Collection is presented through a series of images that combine a classic aesthetic and a contemporary sensibility. The first Advertising Campaign of the new line dedicated to the art of home living transports the viewer into a dreamlike dimension where the objects of our everyday life meet inspiration and become pieces of unique design and creativity. The Blu Mediterraneo, Carretto Siciliano, Leopard and Zebra themes dominate the scene with their iconic patterns and references to Dolce&Gabbana’s most authentic DNA.

The photographs, shot by the duo Mert&Marcus, recall the traditional imagery of the Renaissance artistic nudes, while alluding to the aesthetic of the Dolce&Gabbana 2000s campaigns. The models’ silhouettes delicately blend with their surrounding, bringing out the Collection’s uniqueness. The campaign’s pictorial style draws the spectator into the oneiric and artistic world of Dolce&Gabbana’s furnishing creations.

In the campaign’s video contributions, the poetic aspect is further emphasised by the words of a love letter: Dolce&Gabbana Casa thus becomes the ideal space in which emotions and sensations find expression through the creativity of special objects. The collection showcases Machine Gun Kelly at the forefront. Demonstrating MGK in a new light, he is undoubtedly a key player in the campaign images that display a surplus of body types.

Hd4president – Rollin

Turning up the heat yet again, Louisiana-based rapper Hd4president unleashes a new single and music video entitled “Rollin.” Listen to it HERE, and watch the music video HERE.

The track cruises along on a head-nodding beat laced with skittering percussion and horn samples. HD’s gruff flow cuts through the production as he tells a story, “I met her at the racetrack. She was in the Lexus. I was in my Maybach,” before he sings, “She rollin, she rollin, she rollin.” The accompanying visual opens on a blue 1979 Cutlass Supreme and a canary yellow Camaro. With seamless edits, the visual showcases HD’s neighborhood friends as he raps directly to camera.

The new single arrives on the heels of his critically acclaimed 2022 album, Find My Way. Right out of the gate, the project earned widespread critical acclaim with BET spotlighting him as a ‘Fresh Faces New Artist.’ HipHopDX raved, “Baton Rouge, Louisiana’s own Hd4president has brought his exuberance and catchy flows to new heights with his latest release Find My Way,” while HipHopSince1987 highlighted his sound as being “prime for international crossover.”

Last year, Hd4president shook up the internet with the viral smash, “Touch Down 2 Cause Hell (Bow Bow Bow).” It reached the Top 30 at Urban Radio, piled up 20 million-plus streams, and attracted 2 Chainz & Fredo Bang for a high-profile remix. It also exploded on TikTok, inspiring nearly 2 million TikTok creations – including clips by Lizzo, Coi Leray, City Girls, Latto, Niecy Nash, Gabrielle Union, and Jessica Alba – and over 2 billion views on the platform.

Sonically, Young Franco and Jafunk combine to create a track that reflects the golden era of club driven rap music, pioneered in Virginia by production greats including Pharrell, The Neptunes and Timbaland. Its bounce-ready percussion runs perfectly with quickly strummed guitars and a slapping bass line. On the top line front, Pell is in no rush to get his slick bars off, gliding over the beat with an elegance and class before riding it out with an infectious hook its final third.

VULTURES DON’T KRY DUE AUGUST 18TH VIA RCA RECORDS

It feels like most if not all major and even minor outlets still have yet to catch wind of the Washington Heights bred rapper.” – Fashionably Early

“Stunna Gambino is a New York City artist who marries melodies and bars… His voice is so distinct you can instantly tell when he’s on a track.” – No Jumper

“As he continues to show that he’s the hottest coming out of NY, Stunna stands out as an old soul unafraid to speak his truth.” – ELEVATOR

“New York’s buzzy newcomer.” – RESPECT

20-year-old rising star from Washington Heights, Stunna Gambino, announces the release of his debut album Vultures Don’t Kry via RCA Records. The announcement arrives alongside a new single and accompanying music video, “Warzone” featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. Produced by AndyR, Stunna’s rhymes are reflective and cathartic. Sliding over emotive guitar strings, he makes a stirring dedication to the neighborhood that raised him, “I’m from that war zone, I made a promise to myself I’ma represent the trenches til we on.” Listen to “Warzone” HERE and watch the music video, directed by jmo productionsHERE.

On his debut album with RCA Records, Stunna merges expressive vocals with unfiltered honesty. Vultures Don’t Kry plays like a motivational street survival guide laced with melody, menace and the lessons he learned from the streets of Washington Heights. The album will include previously released singles “Demons” and “Man Down.” 

About Stunna Gambino:

Stunna Gambino’s made a career out of speaking up. Merging expressive vocals with unfiltered honesty, the 20-year-old rapper creates gripping trench tales of triumph and heartbreak to explore his emotions, and in the process, he’s giving others the courage to raise their voice, too. Raised on the sounds of Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, Green Day, Mariah Carey, and more, Gambino wrote his first rhymes at around the age of 9. By age 12, he began saving money to hit up a recording studio in Harlem and record his first solo tracks. When he was 14, the  songs he uploaded to SoundCloud regularly eclipsed 80,000 streams. In 2021, after releasing his glittering Underrated project in 2019, he continued building his buzz when he tapped in with The Kid Laroi and Polo G for “Not Sober,” a melodic rumination on escaping pain through self-medication. With spurts of emotional transparency and slurred crooning, the track earned over 105 million Spotify streams, making it his biggest appearance yet. Riding the momentum of Vultures Don’t Cry, Gambino wants to collect platinum plaques while diving into the worlds of art and acting. From there, who knows? “There’s so much shit I wanna do, and I got one foot in the door right now,” he reveals. “This isn’t even the beginning.”
