They say that it’s great to have friends in high places, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. A friend of mine, who happens to be in radio, invited me out to a private event held at the Marquee in NYC on Tuesday, July 18th. Little did I know that my evening would be spent amongst big names like Mr. Kevin Liles, Tee Grizzley, London on da Track, Busta Rhymes, Phresher, Grafh, LouGotCash, Smack White, and more– in celebration of the launch of the Freestyle 50 Challenge Part II.

Kevin Liles, whom is a media guru, co-founder of 300 Entertainment, and has served as head-honcho of various other entities, is back with part II of the #Freestyle50Challenge– looking for another star. Now let me remind you of who 300 Ent. houses–Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Migos, Eric Bellinger, Tee Grizzley, Frank Ocean, and Shy Glizzy to say the least; who would miss an opportunity like this? Here’s the irresistible part about the Freestyle 50 challenge… rappers have to upload a video of them spitting the hottest bars over Tee Grizzley’s ‘No Effort’ in hopes for $10,000, singles deal with 300 Ent., and a track made by the one and only, London on da Track. Once again I’ll say, WHO WOULD MISS OUT ON AN OPPORTUNITY LIKE THIS? Submissions will be viewed by Kevin Liles and his team through Instagram and Twitter (technology changes everything, no excuses!) Make sure to use the tags #Freestly50challenge, @verizon, and @300ent to get noticed. Hopefully, if your freestyle is hot enough, you’ll be the next big thing on 300, and on your way to stardom.

Here’s a message from Kevin Liles himself. Watch below.

 

Here’s some clips from my amazing night at the exclusive #Freestly50Challenge launch party in NYC.

Over the weekend, multi-platinum recording artist and Atlanta-native Future paid respect to a very important piece of life, Family. At his FreeWishes Foundation hosted 8th annual Golden Wishes Gala honoring Metro Atlanta Seniors. More than 750 seniors dressed in their finest attire attended the annual Gala.

Seniors danced the night away to live jazz music provided by the Douglas Whatley Jr. Band and hits spun by DJ Bluue. The seniors enjoyed a luscious Thanksgiving styled dinner in the spectacular setting of the Ocean’s Ballroom. Seniors learned about Future’s FreeWishes foundation, their ongoing community events, and ways to be involved.

Guest speaker, Fulton County Commissioner Natalie Hall, spoke about the “future” she envisioned for Atlanta seniors. Future and his mother, FreeWishes Foundation co-founder, Stephanie Jester, presented a surprise community service award to Emma Jean Boyd, Future’s grandmother.

A final performance by the legendary Jazz and R&B vocalist, Jean Carne, wrapped up the warm and positive evening. Along with Freebandz, the event was sponsored by Jet One Charter, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Luxury Connections, Zaxby’s, Chick-Fil-A, JenCare and InTouch Properties.

Track Seven Band Makes A Strong Reintroduction With “Memory Loss” Single

Today’s game is truly a never-ending cycle of here today and gone tomorrow. For Track Seven Band, haven’t released a project since 2016’s The Try And The Fail, the uphill battle it seems is reigniting the flame within casual fans who may have moved on to the next one. It’s this overarching idea that guides Cost’s pen for their brand new single “Memory Loss.”

RELATED: #IndieSpotlight: Track Seven Band – The Try And The Fail

There is a lot to unpack with this single. Top-level, there is this flagrant (metaphorical) slap across the head — as though he’s screaming, “I’m still here, stupid.” Below the surface, Cost takes the opportunity to reiterate his position, introduces rumor inducing storylines, and takes a look back at his past.

In the first verse, he drops mention of having traveled around the world on the dime of a figure whom he chooses to keep anonymous; as he explains, this person gave him the motivation he needed to jumpstart his career, but has since “turned faces.” It’s in this act — he further notes that haters induce the same phenomenon — that he seems to have found the strength to thrive.

The second verse begins by reiterating where he’s come from — noting that section 8 and financial aid were his life preservers in his darkest moments. He also notes that he’s still in debt (half of which he paid off with the money he made selling weed). All this isn’t done to glorify anything, but rather serve as motivation. It also hammers home the fact that he has been there and done that, too.

Perhaps in a way, he’s exuding the same motivation that he felt traveling the world.

Playing chess as opposed to checkers is a line that poignantly pops out. “Memory Loss” is a strong (re)introduction or merely business as usual — depending on your knowledge of the band. Either way, it’s drenched in that endearing sense of honesty and realness that made them a group I’ve returned to numerous times since first being introduced to their music.

It’s all about the long game, and — in the end — good music. Cost notes that he’s motivated by things that money can’t buy. That, quite often, is code for having something to lose on a deeper level. It’s in seeing an artist stick to their figurative guns without bending their ethics that true inspiration can be felt.

If you haven’t explored the past releases, do so … immediately.
