The Multi-Platinum, Billboard chart-topping artist and progenitor of Drill music, Chief Keefhas just launched his new label 43B [Forget Everybody] in partnership with RBC Records/BMG. Since 2014, Chief Keef has released numerous albums through RBC, including his fan-favorite projects Sorry 4 The WeightThot Breaker, and Mansion Musick. In 2018, RBC was acquired by BMG, laying the groundwork for Keef’s new partnership with BMG. His new venture 43B is a multi-tiered label offering distribution and marketing services for artists and producers who are shifting music and culture, providing the resources, guidance, and infrastructure they need to thrive in today’s music industry. The name, 43B, stands for Forget Everybody, stressing the importance of individuality and autonomy—two factors that have played heavily into Keef’s path as an artist. The label will be helmed by Chief Keef’s long time manager, Idris Dykes who will be acting as co-CEO, as well as Sophie Kautz who has been appointed as the Head of A&R and Marketing. With the launch of 43B, Chief Keef is also proud to announce his first artist signing, the Atlanta-based rapper, Lil Gnar. 43B is a work of passion for Chief Keef and Lil Gnar is emblematic of the values and vision he hopes to foster with his new venture.

SHEEN Magazine’s Newest Cover Family Bobby Brown & Alicia Etheredge-Brown

When you think of successful boy bands of the late 70s and 80s, New Edition (created by Bobby Brown) is included as one of the iconic singing groups still performing. Considered R&B’s original “Bad Boy” after an on-stage arrest during a solo performance, being R&B royalty (proclaimed the King of R&B by Ex-Wife Whitney Houston) has not been easy for the international star.  Somehow Brown kept it together (when most would not have) after the death of an ex-wife/daughter/son, drug abuse rumors, industry controversy (being removed from New Edition), and more.  Nevertheless, following the highly successful Black Promoters arena tour (featuring New Edition) SHEEN Magazine caught up with Brown and his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, for an unapologetically honest conversation. Check out SHEEN Magazine’s newest cover models, Bobby Brown and Alisha Etheredge-Brown’s online feature “Every Little Step I Take!”

WHO Will Be Crowned SHEEN’S Top Model? SHEEN Magazine’s Newest Reality Show

SHEEN Media Group (parent company to SHEEN Magazine) is proud to announce Saturday, February 26, as the date for the premiere (and after-party) of its newest television show, “SHEEN’s Top Model.”  This fashioned-based reality series follows cast members pursuing their dreams of becoming professional models.
 
Loosely based on the original reality series “America’s Top Model,” SMG held a national model search during 2021.  The finalist was narrowed down to five, and this four women/one-man cast battled four weeks for the eminent title of “SHEEN’s Top Model.”  Executive Producer William Chapman III states, “In our search, we found uniquely beautiful models and innovative fashion designers, and the world needs to meet them.”  Editor-in-Chief of SHEEN Magazine, Kristyn Harris, offers, “Although this was a national search, we specifically looked in smaller cities majorly unnoticed in the fashion world and often not recognized as influencers.  Executive Producer Jessica Nash says, “We created STM to highlight some of the most talented and undiscovered models in the nation.  This untouched market produced some of the best talents in fashion.  We are proud of our selected cast and excited to share the newly crowned ‘SHEEN’s Top Model.” 
 
The STM premiere and after-party will be held at the Nirvana Center, 30 Howard Creek Drive, Fountain Inn, SC 29644 (starting at 6:30 pm sharp).  Tickets can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sheens-top-model-official-viewing-afterparty-tickets-262249373937.
 

Founder Of SHEEN Magazine & Co-Founder OF Chapman Products Company Featured In Vogue Magazine

Founder of SHEEN Magazine and co-founder of Chapman, Products Inc. Mrs. Kimberly M. Chapman has a lot to celebrate. She is a “Black Doll” featured in the prestigious Vogue Magazine.  
 
Possessing the perfect combination of beauty, ambition, and intelligence, Chapman, amongst many, was selected by The Black Doll Affair™ committee to be a “Black Doll.”  Founder Dana Hill says, “After seeing the results of the 2007’ doll test,’ where children pointed out the black doll as bad, I immediately saw the need to change how little Black girls perceived themselves and how they were perceived.  We all have seen research confirming that Black women are often not considered beautiful.  Therefore, The Black Doll Affair’s primary goal is to change that narrative internationally.” Hill continues, “We wanted corporations to engage with us.  Thus, we entered into experiences to target international demographics in the world’s most high-profile magazines.  It’s been ten years since our start, so I wanted to do something different. We’ve done Vogue four times, been a feature on Oprah, seen in Vanity Fair, Essence, SHEEN Magazine, and looking toward Cosmo.  This time our Vogue Magazine placement is not a partnership; it’s a promise fulfilled showcasing the absolute best in beauty, intelligence, grace, and philanthropy. Mrs. Kimberly Chapman is a member of our newest class.  We certainly are glad to have her.”
