[Event Recap] Atlanta Showed Up & Out For Spotify's (@Spotify) RapCaviar Live

 

Spotify

Just in time to celebrate the birth of hip hop, Spotify kicked off their latest concert series, RapCaviar Live. What better place to kick off the highly anticipated concert series than in the city where trap music thrives, Atlanta. Hundreds of excited fans packed the Tabernacle to see the “Trap God” himself, Gucci Mane, Mike WiLL Made-It, and 6lack put on performances worthy of their positions on RapCaviar, Spotify’s most sought out hip hop playlist.

From beginning to end, RapCaviar Live was a showcase of Atlanta’s finest. Spotify brought the city out in a way no one expected! I walked in expecting a great show and left with a musical experience that will forever be embedded in my memory. Rapper Dae Dae took the stage and put on a head bobbing, dread shaking performance. Dae Dae’s energy on stage translated in his music. Word from word, the crowd recited the lyrics to “Wat U Mean” and “Spend It”. Next to follow was another one of Atlanta’s finest, K Camp. The Slum Lord gave the crowd a taste of slum life with the tracks “Cut Her Off” and “Slum Anthem.”

The killer songwriter and singer with the smoothest demeanor, 6lack hit the stage next. 6lack serenaded the crowd with a plethora of hits ranging from “Ex Calling and the certified Plantinum record, “PRBLMS.” The epitome of Sade’s smooth operator , 6lack left every woman in the audience in complete awe of his vocals and ability to connect with the crowd.

Mike WiLL Made-It

Mike WilLL turned his hour-long set into his personal studio session. The highly respected producer gave the crowd hit after hit and paid homage to one of Atlanta’s fallen angels, Shawty Lo. As expected, Mike WiLL didn’t leave the stage without giving fans one last hurrah. The energetic, hit makers from Mississippi, Rae Sremmurd, took the stage. The sibiling duo put on a headlining performance that brought the entire crowd to their feet.  The temperature in the Tabernacle went from 72 degrees to unbearably hot. The walls literally started to sweat. Rae Sremmurd’s performance was just the tip of the ice berg.

Gucci Mane

Caviar is never forgetting where you come from. After Gucci’s performance, it’s evident the Trap God never forgot the city that raised him. Gucci surprised the crowd by enlisting the help of : Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Playboi Carti, Lil Wop, Marlow, Rocko, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Lil Baby, Trouble Trouble, and Ears. It’s no wonder why Gucci is known as the Trap God.

I’m sure I’m not the only person who listened to Spotify’s RapCaviar playlist to relive an incredible night of performances. RapCaviar Atlanta was a musical experience only Spotify can orchestrate. There’s no telling what RapCaviar will bring in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Toronto. For your chance to catch RapCaviar Live in a city near you visit Ticketmaster.

Chasing Shade? “G-Status ATL Hustle” Creator Speaks on “Chasing Atlanta” (@ChasingRLTY) Beef!

We have to admit these web reality series are amusing. There are a few that have definitely come up on radar in the last year–Chasing Atlanta, The Come Up ATL, and The G-Status ATL Hustle! The first and latter, however,  seem ready to collide after an interview on our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning’s popular radio show, The Hey Mikey Show. Last night’s show centered on the cast of The G-Status ATL Hustle as they built up to their series premiere set to air tonight on YouTube. However, a few comments made by series creator and director, Jah Jah Katai, seem to have been perceived as shady by a few Chasing Atlanta cast members.

We have to admit these web reality series are amusing. There are a few that have definitely come up on radar in the last year–Chasing Atlanta, The Come Up ATLand The G-Status ATL Hustle! The first and latter, however,  seem ready to collide after an interview on our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning’s popular radio show, The Hey Mikey Show.

These aforementioned comments took place on cast member, Sherrod Willis’ Instagram Live feed and it seems some the “kidz” aren’t having it. Check out Jah Jah’s comments below (Swipe left) and a few comments from left on the post:

Shady? We don’t have an opinion. However, Mikey reached out to Jah earlier today for a statement and he had this to say, “Didn’t say their [Chasing Atlanta] name. A hit dog will holler. That’s it from me, but thank you again.”

You can listen to last night’s airing of The Hey Mikey Show by clicking here. All we can say is that we will be tuning into the premiere of The G-Status ATL Hustle where you will see Mikey make a guest appearance and we will be at Truth nightclub tonight for a special screening. If you’re in the metro Atlanta area come out, come dressed, and be prepared to be BLOGGED about!

#FashionCrush- Florence Welch (@flo_tweet)

Florence Welch fashion crush

When, singer, Florence Welch hit the scene in the early 2010’s with her band, The Machine, the fashion world collectively breathed a collective sigh of relief.

Florence Welch fashion crush

There had been almost a starvation for a band with a beautiful, yet fashion forward front woman reminiscent of the days of No Doubt and Blondie. Practically overnight, the fiery red head, who hails from Camberwell, London, England, was scooped up by almost every major fashion house, having performed at the Chanel runway show in 2012 as well as having Gucci design the wardrobe for her 2011 summer tour.  This would subsequently result in a long relationship with the house of Gucci as she has become a muse for Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele.

Despite all of the fashion press, Florence Welch + The Machine were still relatively unknown. Welch had had somewhat of a turbulent childhood, having had the traumatic experience of watching her grandmother commit suicide. By age fourteen she picked up a drinking habit and was known to frequent wild parties. Fortunately, Welch was able to kick the habit, and despite being diagnosed with dyslexia, was able to do well in school.  She would later drop out of the Camberwell College of Arts to focus on her music career. In 2009, Florence and her band, The Machine released their debut album, Lungs, which debuted at number seventeen on the UK charts.  By 2011, they were already creating a buzz in the music world, having had two successful albums.   The latter of which debuted at number one on the UK albums chart.  A song from this album would eventually be used in the soundtrack for Snow White and the Huntsman.  After releasing the single Sweet Nothing with Calvin Harris, Welch would receive her first Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording.

In recent years, Welch has had much success apart from her band.  She’s collaborated with Lady Gaga on a song for Gaga’s latest album, and also put her vocals to use on the Wonder Woman soundtrack. You can still find her beasting every red carpet event she attends and as the brand ambassador for Gucci, you can be assured she’ll most likely be the best dressed.

The CW Airs Series Finale for “Life Sentence,” Show Runner Reveals True Ending For Series!

We love The CW! The network has some of the best television series out right now, including Riverdale, Supernatural, and The Arrowverse (the term associated with the The CW’s interconnected superhero series Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning), and soon the Charmed reboot. However, one of its series that surprisingly intrigued us was Life Sentence, a series centered on Stella Abbott (Lucy Hale), a woman who thought she was dying from cancer, but now has to face the rest of her life after being cured. Stella often finds herself playing catch up as she learns her husband and family have made many sacrifices to keep her incredibly comfortable. The series is sweet, funny, quirky and is now CANCELLED!

The CW opted to cancel the series due to low ratings, as it averaged a mere 500K viewers each episode. Star of the series, Lucy Hale has posted the following:

We really hate to see the series go, especially after watching the series finale. It was so amazingly sweet with each character seemingly getting a hopeful ending. Television has a lot of dramas but Life Sentence really stood out with its message of family first, second chances, and making the most of life. We love you Stella Abbott, and her husband, Wes Charles (Elliot Knight)…our Friday nights just will not be the same with you.

The series finale defintely had fans of the show in tears as Stella and Wes broke up. The show runner, Richard Keith took Twitter revealing how the series should have ended had it lasted longer.

“They stay friends… then drift apart… then reconnect in Paris at 30 and get remarried, fully knowing the commitment they are making… and they adopt the child of a someone who is diagnosed with cancer while pregnant and chooses to have the baby rather than chemo #lifesentence,” Keith said in response to the fan.

We wish Lucy, Elliot, and the rest of the cast the best of luck in all their future endeavors! For now you can catch all the episodes on demand under The CW. Happy viewing!
