[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.

Surprising Twist! Jussie Smollett’s Criminal Case Has Been DROPPED!

Published

When it comes to Jussie Smollett’s criminal case, a roller coaster would be the perfect way to describe the twists and emotions tied to it. Now in a surprising twist of fate, Jussie’s case has been officially dismissed by an Illinois state judge!

Via TMZ

Jussie Smollett will not be prosecuted for allegedly faking a racial attack, because all charges have been dropped!!!

Jussie and his lawyers ran to court Tuesday morning in Chicago, where he was facing 16 felony counts of lying to police in the alleged racial and homophobic attack.  

Jussie will surrender his $10,000 bond.  We’re told he has agreed to perform community service.  But that’s it.  The case is over. 

Jussie’s lawyers say, “Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him.  Jussie was attacked by 2 people he was unable to identify on January 29th.  He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public, causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.”

The lawyers go on … “Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions.  This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion.  That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect.  Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.”

A source close to Jussie says the prosecution’s case “disintegrated.”  As we reported, there were issues with the $3,500 check the 2 brothers received from Jussie.  The Police Superintendent had said the money was payment for the fake attack, but it appears it was actually for physical training.

The Police Superintendent also said during a news conference that Jussie wrote that threatening letter 6 days before the attack when in actuality the FBI had not concluded who wrote the letter. 

This is definitely good news for Jussie, but the real question is what REALLY happened? There are still so many questions left unanswered. The story is still developing, we will keep you posted!

The Fuller House cast is focusing on their “loving family” amid Lori Loughlin’s alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal.

While accepting the award for favorite funny TV show at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday, Fuller House stars Andrea BarberCandace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin seemingly offered a message of support for their costar Lori Loughlin, who has been embroiled in scandal since her alleged role in the college admissions scandal was revealed.

“Thank you for voting Fuller House as your favorite funny TV show. You have been laughing alongside of our family for four seasons and this family has a lot of heart,” Barber, 42, said.

“And where there’s a lot of heart, there’s a lot of love,” Cameron Bure, 42, added. “And a loving family sticks together no matter what.”

We are not surprised that Candace is standing by her Lori, she has after all known her since she was an adolescent. For all intents and purposes she is a member of her extended family after decades of interaction. We really hate that Lori is embroiled in this scandal. She’s “Aunt Becky” still, and we are hoping she gets through this. Kudos to the cast for sticking together through thick and thin. Fuller House is set to end after its next and fifth season. Let’ enjoy one more round with the Tanner-Fuller Clan!

Nice! Jordan Peele’s “Us” (@UsMovie) $70 Million Opening Weekend Sets Records!

Jordan Peele is winning yet again! His newest horror film, Us, had debuted with higher than expected seventy million dollar opening weekend! This has earned the film a number of records, including the highest opening for an original movie (meaning it is not a sequel or reboot), and the highest debut for a movie in March for an original live-action movie or horror film. The film has already more than doubled Get Out’s opening of $33.4 million dollars!

Jordan Peele is winning yet again! His newest horror film, Us, had debuted with higher than expected seventy million dollar opening weekend! This has earned the film a number of records, including the highest opening for an original movie (meaning it is not a sequel or reboot), and the highest debut for a movie in March for an original live-action movie or horror film. The film has already more than doubled Get Out’s opening of $33.4 million dollars!

us movie opening weekend

Let’s lay out some pretty amazing facts about Us’ $70 million weekend. That is the highest opening ever for an original “R”-rated film. The 11 “R” films to open higher were either sequels or adapted from popular books. Us is also the biggest opening ever for an original live-action film in March and an original horror film in any month. Only It and last year’s Halloween opener higher. But…can it outgross Get Out‘s $176 million?

Us has already doubled Get Out’s $33.4 million opening. A good start indeed. It is the 142nd film to open with $65 million or more. Of those previous 141 films, do you know how many failed to reach the $176 million earned by Get Out? Six. (Fifty Shades of Grey, Halloween 2018, Fast and FuriousQuantum of Solace,X-Men: Apocalypse2012). That is already 95.7% in favor of Us besting Get Out’s total. The number to watch next week when Dumbo knocks Us back to second is whether its second weekend is over or under $28 million.

We are clapping all the way to the bank for Jordan Peele! Yet again, movie trackers are bad at predicting what will be a hit or not. Social media indicated just what a buzz this film had around it, thus we are not surprised! What do you guys think of Us? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
