Lecrae x Zaytoven – Get Back Right

Check out the first single “Get Back Right” off of GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist, Lecrae’s special mixtape project with fellow GRAMMY Award-winning producer, Zaytoven, entitled Let The Trap Say Amen (coming June 22nd).
Born out of a mutual respect for each other’s work and joined by common faith, the two Atlanta legends came together for a release aimed at highlighting the positive aspects of the trap.
“In a guest editorial Lecrae penned for DJBooth.net to announce the project Lecrae explains, “When I hear the term ‘trap music,’ I don’t think of glorifying the negativity. I think of a soundscape that speaks a certain language. I think of music that tells real stories.”
“Get Back Right” is a real story from Lecrae about “bouncing back” from adversity, getting back right with God after realizing material possessions and empty relationships can’t satisfy his soul.”

Kool Moe D, Killer Mike, David Banner, Lecrae, Gangsta Boo and More Celebrate Rap Legend Roxanne Shante at the Atlanta Screening of Netflix Movie ‘Roxanne Roxanne’

Last week, I am OTHER and Netflix partnered for a private screening of the original Netflix film, Roxanne Roxanne, in Atlanta. Held at the city’s premier members-only club, The Gathering Spot, Hip Hop’s finest MC’s, execs and industry affiliates came out to support one of Hip Hop’s legends, Roxanne Shanté. Acclaimed music executive and Hip Hop historian, Chaka Zulu, welcomed guests to their seats to the private screening and began the show.

Immediately following the screening, Chaka welcomed Roxanne Shanté, debut actress, Chanté Adams, Producer & Chief Creator Director for I am OTHER, MiMi Valdes, and Grammy Award-Winning Executive and Head of Music for I am OTHER , Kawan “KP” Prather, to the stage. The group conducted an intellectual conversation about the film, Roxanne’s life and journey as well as the impact she left on the music scene, today.

During the panel an honest exchange between Hip-Hop vet, Killer Mike and Roxanne Shanté took place, as he professed to the audience how Roxanne was the reason for him believing in himself which led to him starting his music career.

After the panel discussion, guests were invited to the after party in The Gathering Spot, where Martell Cognac powered movie-inspired cocktails all evening such as the crowd favorite, ‘Roxanne’s Revenge’. DJ A&R kicked off the after party spinning classic Hip Hop records and KP The Great (Kawan Prather) controlled the music the remainder of the night fusing songs from Roxanne Shanté, classic ATL records and today’s hits. As a special surprise, Atlanta’s leading dance studio, Dance 411, performed a tribute dance routine to one of Roxanne’s hit singles “Have A Nice Day”, that had everyone in awe.

“This was the first event where we had hip hop icons and fans coming together to celebrate their love for Roxanne Shante and her story. From Killer Mike crediting her for inspiring his career to audience members mentioning how grateful they were that this time in hip hop was now documented, it was an incredibly beautiful event. The more we can come together to celebrate our stories, the stronger our culture becomes”, stated producer MiMi Valdes.

Roxanne Roxanne Is Now Available On Netflix.

Lecrae’s new signee, New Orleans rapper Aha Gazelle, drops “Boot Camp”

New Orleans rapper, producer, singer-songwriter, Aha Gazelle, releases his new single, “Boot Camp,” featuring Tony Ri’chard and Starringo. The track is available for instant download with the pre-order of Aha Gazelle’s forthcoming project, Trilliam 3, set to release on November 3rd. The video for the project’s lead single, “Back In My Bag,” released last week and has quickly racked up over 40K views. Pre-order Trilliam 3 here and listen to “Boot Camp” here.

Aha Gazelle is currently on tour with two-time GRAMMY Award winner, Lecrae, for the All Things Work Together Tour. Last month, the two released their collaborative single, “Whatchu Mean,” which premiered on Beats 1 Radio with Ebro. The track has since generated over 1.7M collective plays. Click here for more info on All Things Work Together Tour and check out “Whatchu Mean” here.

Born William Gazelle Fields Jr., Aha Gazelle has demonstrated through his music, which includes Trilliam, and the sequential Trilliam 2, that there are many dimensions to rap. Standing 6’6” tall, weighing in at 205 pounds and sporting dreadlocks, Aha is an amalgamation of authenticity, flash, savviness, artistry and Louisiana. Like his icons, Lil’ Wayne and Jay Electronica, his style is tough and confident, but Aha also comes with a strong sense of optimism, an attitude he learned while growing up and playing the drums in his father’s church in New Orleans. Entirely written and produced by himself, his music has been featured on notable Spotify playlists, including “Blessings” and “The Flow.” While attending Grambling State University, he released his first projects, Free Barabbas andTrilliam, organically garnering over 1M collective streams and landing him a deal with Reach Records. Aha is currently preparing Trilliam 3, the third and final installment of his mixtape series which will complete the story that has been woven throughout the trilogy. Carrying the message that one can be successful by being their authentic self, without relying on stereotypical imagery to become popular, the project is set to shine a positive light on Southern hip-hop.
