Alec King – Weekends

Buzzing Los Angeles-based artist Alec King releases his new video “Weekends” today via The Heavy Group/Republic Records.

Watch “Weekends” HERE.

Who doesn’t like dogs? Alec King’s latest video pulls at our heartstrings as he chills under a tree in a dog park (socially distancing, of course). Between leafing through a diary, Alec plays with various pups—some of whom remain six feet away from him. The scene underscores confessional rhymes and a catchy chorus, reflecting on the boredom of the moment and trying to get over a breakup.

“Weekends” follows the video release of “Way Up” and his song “Dangerous,” which received heavy radio support in his hometown of Denver and 2 million streams in a few months. At the end of last year, Alec King went on his debut US tour with diva on the rise Kiana Ledé. He performed to sold-out venues, including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Washington DC and more, winning the crowd over with his infectious charm, incredible stage presence, and catchy songs.

Is there any line this guy won’t cross? Alec King is the kind of dude who rips bars about Wisconsin and god-awful ex-girlfriends with the same passion. He considers Curb Your Enthusiasm his “Torah.” He jumps into bathtubs with Porn Stars in music videos that he directs himself. He even went so far as to name his official debut EP, Greatest Hits, Vol. 1, and its successor, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 (he backed up the latter with some heat). On the ‘gram, you’re just as likely to catch him in the shower as you are to catch him coloring with sidewalk chalk. This sort of personality endeared him to fans and peers alike. Posting up 10 million-plus streams under-the-radar and attracting acclaim from Dancing Astronaut, he has collaborated with legends such as Biz Markie and modern stars a la Rich The Kid and Kiana Ledé. Not to mention, he did all of this D.I.Y. primarily relying on an in-house team. In 2020, he floods the game with a series of singles and more surprises.

Kyle × Concerts In Your Car

June is all about graduations, but coronavirus restrictions have quashed most celebrations this year. Enter CBF Productions. The founders of crowd-pleasing favorites Boots & Brews Country Music Festival and the Winter Wine Walk have created a social distancing solution so that grads and their families can celebrate in style at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. Scheduled for June 26 & June 27, “Congrats to Grads!” will feature Ventura native Kyle, the popular rapper, singer, and songwriter, kicking off of the Concerts In Your Car series of live entertainment events.

Kyle, who just released two new songs from his upcoming new album; “YES! (feat. Rich The Kid and K Camp)” and “What It Is,” skyrocketed up the charts with his chart-topping, 6x-platinum breakout hit “iSpy.” Rolling Stone magazine named Kyle as “one of the ten artists you need to know” and his now Gold-certified debut album Light of Mine was released in 2017. The following year, Kyle made his acting debut, starring in the Netflix hip-hop comedy The After Party. 

“Even with social distancing, we wanted to give people a way to get out, celebrate and have some fun!” said Vincenzo Giammanco, owner of CBF Productions. “Our team got creative and decided to develop a new type of experience that will bring excitement to the summer of 2020 despite the pandemic. We plan on producing events offering a range of entertainment more announcements will follow soon.”

The events will offer room for 500 cars per show and are designed to comply with all official restrictions. The combination of an extra high stage
and five oversized screens will ensure a good viewing experience for everyone.

In addition to performances by Kyle, the 75-minute program will include a visual light show, multi-media entertainment and a video saluting the attending graduates. Sound will be distributed via FM radio. Tickets are sold in advance and online only and are priced starting at $49 per car with up to 5 people per vehicle. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Food Share, Ventura County’s largest food bank.

While no food is available for purchase at the concert, attendees will be provided with a comprehensive list of downtown Ventura restaurants that feature curbside pickup. With the fairgrounds just three blocks from the Ventura downtown district where many beloved local restaurants are located, the concert will provide a much-needed boost to local eateries.

The concert celebrating 2020 grads is just the tip of the iceberg for CBF Productions. The company is currently in negotiation with various cities throughout California to produce a series of live concerts throughout the summer. Other themes being considered are Comedy, Country Music, Top 40 and a show specifically for kids.

More information on the event and to purchase tickets can be found here, and you can learn more about Kyle here.

FAMOUS DEX – WHAT I LIKE

Today, Chicago’s turn-up king Famous Dex releases a new single and music video for his song “What I Like” off of his forthcoming sophomore album. For the single, Dex also taps fellow multi-platinum recording artists Tyga and Rich The Kid — adding layers to the already vibrant track. Rich The Kid provides the infectious hook and Tyga laces the beat with his trademarked flow, making you subconsciously bounce in your seat. On the opposite side of the sonic spectrum from his first single off of the album, “Proofread” ft. Wiz Khalifa which took a more melodic approach, Dex returns back to his signature sound with “What I Like.”

RICH THE KID – NO LOYALTY

Multiplatinum rapper Rich The Kid releases his new video “No Loyalty” today.
 
Watch “No Loyalty” HERE.
 
The song appears on his recently released album BOSS MAN. The 19-track album has features from Lil Baby, DaBaby, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone, Lil Tjay, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, London On Da Track and Quavo.

Rich The Kid is returning with his new release with his new partner label Republic Records and is looking toward 2020 with his greatest music yet. In 2017, Rich The Kid delivered his intoxicating “New Freezer” with Kendrick Lamar. The RIAA double Platinum track was followed by the triple Platinum colossal single “Plug Walk” in 2018. At this point, Rich The Kid had merely hit his stride after years of grinding, making records and breaking other acts like the world famous Migos and Famous Dex. Rich’s fame was growing as both a star rapper and label entrepreneur. The World Is Yours debuted in 2018, fueled by the aforementioned “New Freezer” and “Plug Walk.” Titled as a clear nod to Nas, the project showcased how Rich The Kid navigated seamlessly through crafting bangers that not only could live in a club, but also through car radios and AirPods. In 2019 he followed with The World Is Yours 2, led by its platinum single “Splashin,” and is now ready for the world to hear his new music.

Trippie Red Releases video for new song “Under New Enemy”

Today multi-platinum Canton, OH, rapper and singer Trippie Redd releases the video for his the first single, Under Enemy Arms from his upcoming project.

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. That marked Trippie’s second Top 5 in 3 months on Billboards Mainstream Top 200 Charts (In August, 2018, Redd’s Life’s A Trip LP entered #4 on the Billboard 200). He is currently at 3.5 BILLION streams.

XXL wrote Trippie succeeds by placing Redd’s narrative at its core and leaning into the inventive melodies that initially put the young rapper on the map. Lyrically, Trippie is direct. Vocally, his balance between restrained and bombastic delivery is unmatched Trippie recently graced the Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor Hollywood stage with a performance of Topanga Watch it HERE.&#a0;He also performed his other hit song Taking A Walk Watch it HERE.

In addition to generating nearly 4 billion streams, Trippie was named a Spotify Rise Artist, an Artist to Watch by Rolling Stone, and landed on the cover of the 2018 XXL Freshman Class. Singing real shit that people all over the world can relate to timeless, says Trippie. Timeless music literally is a concept I can live on.

Trippie Redd’s singles love scars and Dark Night Dummo [feat.Travis Scott] are RIAA certified platinum. His songs Poles 1469 and Bust Down are certified gold. He has collaborated with everyone from Travis Scott, Diplo, Julia Michaels, Lil Yachty, D.R.A.M., Alison Wonderland,Rising and Rich The Kid.

Trippie’s breakout mixtapes A Love Letter To You and A Love Letter To You 2 hit the stratosphere in 2017. Praised for his lyrics as well as his style, he chronicles love and heartbreak from the streets and experience. Trippie became serious upon becoming a rapper upon encouragement from his late older brother. Trippie Redd would later get a scar tattoo on his face to honor him after he died in a road accident in 2014 — pushing Trippie to work harder on his music. He grew up being raised by his single-parent mother (his father was incarcerated since Trippie’s birth).Life’s A Trip continues to share Trippie’s eccentrically-wild world as seen through Trippie’s eyes. He finds influences from Gorillaz, Erykah Badu, Drake, Marilyn Manson, Tupac, Nirvana, and Lil Wayne(among others).
