RICH THE KID & JAY CRITCH x BLUEPRINT

Expanding its roster of multiplatinum award-winning superstars once again, The Blueprint Group/Maverick announces the recent signings of RIAA Platinum-certified hip-hop force Rich the Kid and breakthrough talent Jay Critch. The team will represent both artists for management worldwide.

 

One of hip-hop’s most thrilling new voices, Queens born rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, executive, and Rich Forever Music founder, Rich the Kid quickly cemented a spot at the forefront of culture with his certified Platinum smash “New Freezer” feat. Kendrick Lamar and the red-hot follow-up “Plug Walk.” Both regularly average upwards of 70K units in weekly consumption. At Spotify, “New Freezer’s” total streams have surpassed 82 million and counting to date. Moreover, the single claimed real estate on coveted playlists such as “Rap Caviar” Hot Todays’s Top Hits, “Hot Rhythmic”, and “Get Turnt” and landed in the Top 50 of the Us Top 100 and Top 100 of the Global Top 200. “Plug Walk” simultaneously just crossed the 12 million streams mark.

 

At radio, “New Freezer” is quickly approaching Top 10 Urban radio and Rhythmic radio is starting to catch fire with “Plug Walk” not far behind. The artist’s full-length debut and what promises to be a hip-hop blockbuster of epic proportions, “The World Is Yours”, arrives in stores and at all digital retailers in March 2018.

 

Signed to Rich Forever Music, Critch remains on track for a breakout of his own in 2018. His single “Fashion” [feat. Rich the Kid] ignited 16 million-plus Spotify streams as he consistently generates over 1.6 million monthly listeners on the platform. He garnered widespread fan love for his star-making turn on last year’s Rich Forever 3 compilation and will be unveiling more music very soon.

 

Aligning with The Blueprint Group/Maverick, Rich the Kid and Jay Critch will be under the guidance and watch of one of the industry’s most innovative, inventive, and influential executive teams.

 

About these signings, The Blueprint Group/Maverick Partner and CMO Al Branch comments, “Rich the Kid is burgeoning Rap Mogul in the making, I’m so excited to seeRich the Kid and Jay Critch provide the Blueprint for the new generation of artists, entertainers, and executives”.

The Roots: Tiny Desk Concert

Grammy award winning and multi-platinum hip hop icons The Roots star in the latest installment of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert Series. Check it out HERE.

The band performed their hit “It Ain’t Fair” from the critically acclaimed motion picture “DETROIT”. “‘It Ain’t Fair’ was designed to emphasize the importance of social justice through the prism of late-sixties Detroit, which means many things culturally and politically, and also certain things musically. Music has the power to express both anguish and hope,” explains The Roots drummer and producer Questlove.

From Kathryn Bigelow, two-time Academy Award®- winning director of THE HURT LOCKER and ZERO DARK THIRTY, and Annapurna Pictures, DETROIT captures one of the most terrifying events during the riots that took place over five tumultuous summer days in 1967. The DETROIT Original Motion Picture Soundtrack captures light amidst one of America’s darkest times by illuminating the power at the heart of the Motown, Detroit, and late sixties cultures all at once. It’s the sound of change in the face of oppression and a moment of revolution brought to life in song and on screen.

X Ambassadors Release Video for “Ahead Of Myself”

“With the “Ahead Of Myself” video, we wanted to take something that everyone takes for granted in music videos and turn that on its head,” says X Ambassadors lead singer Sam Harris. “Instead of lip-synching along to the words, the vocals would be recorded live, in the moment. We hoped to create something vulnerable and imperfect with this video, because that’s what the song is all about – embracing your fears and still diving in head-first.”

X Ambassadors’ latest single “Ahead Of Myself” is currently climbing up the Alternative Radio chart as the band gets ready for their inaugural Cayuga Sound Festival which will take place in their home town of Ithaca, NY on September 23rd.  The festival will feature performances by X Ambassadors, The Roots,  K.Flay, The Knocks, Margaret Glaspy, Jukebox the Ghost, Tei Shi and more. A portion of the proceeds will benefit local non-profits including Friends of Stewart Park, The Ithaca Youth Bureau, GIAC, Planned Parenthood Ithaca, Community School of Music & Arts and others.
