TRAVIS THOMPSON ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT, DUE SEPTEMBER 20

(August 16, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) After receiving over 30 million-plus streams and drumming up critical acclaim, buzzing Seattle, WA rapper Travis Thompson is pleased to announce his debut album, Reckless Endangerment, due September 20 via AMBAUM/Epic RecordsThompson revealed the album’s release date and artwork yesterday to his fans via a mural painted in real-time in his hometown. Check out the announcement HERE.

Along with the album news, today he officially launches lead single “God’s Favorite” and its official music video, directed by Thompson himself with collaborator Dylan Fout. Get the song HERE and watch the video HERE.

Over a lush beat, he bobs and weaves between hyper-charged rhymes and a divinely catchy chant, “I feel like God’s favorite. In the hilarious music video, Jesus decides to take a “Me Day” with “the homies. So, he floats down to Earth, smokes up with Travis Thompson and his crew, and rages in a stretch limo, at a tattoo parlor, and in the club. This particular story might not be in the Bible, but it could be worthy of a whole New-er Testament, nonetheless. 

A true body of work, upcoming album sticks to a theme as wild as his wordplay. About its overarching concept, Thompson shared, Reckless Endangerment is a misdemeanor. It’s living wrongfully. It’s a charge you get when you’re acting so recklessly you could get the people around you hurt. That’s kind of what my life is and what all of the homies lives are. We’re on this journey trying to find fulfillment, and we’re all lost as Hell trying to figure it out. No matter what, we bright each other with. To us, Reckless Endangerment is knowing better, but still choosing not to do better, yet never alone. It’s finding a substantial risk, and saying, ‘Fuck it’Whether that’s right or wrong is up to you to decide.

To celebrate the release, he fittingly returns home for what promises to be an unforgettable gig alongside special guests with ADÈ (Phil Adè) and Nyles Davis on September 20 at The Showbox in Seattle, WA. Get tickets HERE.

Reckless Endangerment follows up his RUNAWAYS EP, which tallied over 20 million Spotify streams and garnered tastemaker praise. Earmilk wrote, Thompson is confident in his sound and rightfully so, this young rising rapper strapped with verbal dexterity, wide-ranging vocal control, and multisyllabic rhyme schemes. Sonically, he can be compared to a more aggressive, quirky Chance the Rapper; lyrically, he toys with a poetic variety of subjects.”

Get caught up in Reckless Endangerment with Travis Thompson this fall.

Hailing from the suburbs of Burien, WA, buzzing rapper Travis Thompson threads together emotionally charged and evocative stories with each and every rhyme. He blasted onto the mainstream radar during 2017 after earning the endorsement of fellow Pacific Northwest titan Macklemore who invited him to open up a sold-out North American tour and duet on a seminal performance during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Capitalizing on this momentum, he rolled tape on his 13-track independent full-length YOUGOOD?and accompanying feature-length film. Appropriately, it premiered at a sold-out movie theater in his hometown. Along the way, “Need You” eclipsed 5 million Spotify streams with numerous other songs crossing the one-million mark. 2019 sees him positioned for stardom with a new deal for Epic Recordshis RUNAWAYS EP and full-length debut Reckless Endangerment coming September 20.

SAMM HENSHAW RELEASES NEW SINGLE “THE WORLD IS MINE” TODAY

(August 15, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) Today, acclaimed UK singer/songwriter Samm Henshaw shares a new single entitled “The World Is Mine.

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

BBC Radio 1 tastemaker MistaJam just exclusively premiered the song on his 1Xtra show. Built around a sample of the Nas classic “Made You Look” and produced by Pop & Oak [Rihanna, Alessia Cara, Nicki Minaj], Henshaw flips this hip-hop staple into a slick and simmering soul anthem. Backed by thick percussion and boisterous horns, he vaults from deep Delta blues-style crooning on the verses into a victorious and vibrant chant, “We got the whole world ahead and the whole world behind—nothing in the rear view but wasting time.In tandem with the track, he shared an eye-catching and action-packed stop-motion lyric video. It will be followed up by an insane Quentin Tarantino-inspired caper music video, dropping imminently.

Watch the lyric video HERE!

“The World Is Mine” heralds Henshaw’s forthcoming full-length debut, landing in stores and at all digital retailers later this year. It arrives hot on the heels of his buzzing breakout“Church” [feat. EARTHGANG]. The latter clocked 11.8 million-plus streams and counting as he received widespread acclaim. Clash wrote, “In an age where religion has been misaligned and exploited by propagators of the far-right movement, Samm Henshaw is reclaiming the narrative, and Complex claimed, “Whether you’re religious or not, Samm Henshaw’s new team-up with fun-loving duo EarthGang will surely give you reason to smile.

With nimble vocal runs, a booming register, steeple-size range, and fiery fresh fusion of gospel, soul, and pop, Henshaw has all the makings of a bold and bright breaking superstar.

Born in London, Henshaw was raised by Nigerian parents, honing his love for Gospel and American soul in a church pastored by his father.  With his 2016 breakout debut The Sound Experiment EP and its follow up The Sound Experiment 2he’s established himself as an inspiring new channeler of soul, coalescing his signature sound around filaments of pop, hip hop, gospel, and R&B.  Hand-picked by Chance the Rapper and James Bay to support their live treks, he’s also spent the past 2 years working and touring with the likes of PharrellRag’n’Bone Man, and Maverick Sabre before hitting the U.S. at the beginning of the summer for well-received showcases kicking off his stateside debut.  His steady ascent has been chronicled by The Guardian and The Independent, with Henshaw also being cited as “One To Watch” by SpotifyTeen VogueGoogleGQ, and others.

(August 1, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum rapper, singer, producer, artist, and actor Jidenna unveils the music video for his new single “Tribe” on VEVO today. 

Watch it HERE.

Get “Tribe” HERE and “Sufi Woman” HERE via Wondaland Records/Epic Records.

In the visual, Jidenna allows viewers to witness what typically happens at a gathering with his tribe, a vibe that feels like Stankonia meets Fela’s Shrine in Brooklyn. Shot during an intimate home soiree, he opens the door and welcomes the camera into a gathering of friends eating, drinking, smoking, and being merry. The action builds towards a climax of dancing as our host breaks it down with inimitable swagger, spirit, and style. Intercutting a long fluid tracking shot, the pacing mirrors the song’s jump from nimble verses into a chantable hook.

“Tribe” paves the way for his highly anticipated second full-length, 85 To Africa, coming on August 23, 2019.

Just last week, he surprised fans everywhere and the industry at large by dropping “Tribe” and “Sufi Woman.” Right from the jump, they garnered critical acclaim. Consequence of Sound called “Sufi Woman” a “hip swinger that applies trap drum programming and Auto-Tune accents to decades-old global sounds, and dubbed “Tribe” a “more distinctly modern slow groove.” Touted among “The 9 Songs You Need To Hear This Week, OkayAfrica. claimed, “he’s brought his A-game. Jidenna gives us a brilliant sneak preview with his two new singles.

This fall, he brings the new album to life on the 85 To Africa across North America. It kicks off October 2 in Sacramento, CA, plays major markets coast to coast, and closes out on November 16 in Los Angeles, CA. Check out the full itinerary below.

Buckle up for more from 85 To Africa soon!

The project marks the culmination of an unbelievable journey for Jidenna. Following the runaway success of his 2017 debut, The Chief, he was evicted from a rental home after the owner foreclosed without notifying him. He was scheduled to immediately begin a tour that began on the I-85 in Atlanta and ended in Johannesburg. Without a home to return to, he wound up living in cities across Africa and created this masterful soundtrack for a road trip across the Atlantic Ocean. This life-changing shift laid the groundwork for 85 TO AFRICA and what promises to be one of the most dynamic, diverse, and definitive projects of 2019.

As a prelude to this journey, also shared an album trailer. In the visual, Jidenna chronicles the events leading up to his move in honest detail before giving a snapshot of what to expect on the album and this incredible journey. 

Watch it HERE.

Take a ride on 85 TO AFRICA with Jidenna, and you may never be the same…

Hip-hop needed a global voice, but it got a global leader in Jidenna. He rose to the forefront of the conversation with the double-platinum smash “Classic Man” [feat. Roman GianArthur], which garnered a GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.” Kendrick Lamar hopped on the remix, and a chopped-and-screwed version appeared in the Academy® Award-winning Moonlight. Meanwhile, his debut The Chief received widespread acclaim from The New York TimesXXLThe Guardian, and more. Extending his influence, he graced the screen everywhere from NETFLIX’s Luke Cage and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to Insecure.

RENCE RELEASES EPIC RECORDS DEBUT SINGLE  “EXPENSIVE” FEATURING NOAH CYRUS TODAY

(June 21, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Following support from the likes of Zane Lowe and Ones To Watch and nearly 7 million independent streams, buzzing genre disruptor Rence shares his brand new single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] today. The song marks his official debut for Epic Records and kicks off what promises to be a momentous year for the artist.

Get it HERE.

“Expensive” pairs a propulsive beat and glowing synths with handclaps and a slick bass line. Rence’s voice slips into a deep and dynamic timbre on the priceless chant, “It’s not that I don’t want to, I just can’t afford to love you.” Cyrus appears on the second verse before joining him in hypnotic harmony on the hook punctuated by iridescent guitar and emotional ad-libs.

About the track, Cyrus said, “I’ve been in my own world for almost 11 months, and I’m so excited Rence is my first collab back. The record was undeniable from the moment I heard it, and it sounded electric when we had it finished.

Rence commented, ‘Expensive’ is about when you feel like you’ve given someone so much that you’ve depleted your own resources—like you have nothing left to give. It’s not that you don’t want to give that person the world, but you just can’t afford to anymore, because it’s starting to really hurt you. It’s about looking out for and loving yourself in a sense. Noah added another dimension to the song I didn’t even know existed—I just couldn’t believe it when I heard her verse!”

Be on the lookout for the upcoming music video soon!

Next up, Rence introduces himself on stage in New York, announcing his first show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn July 24. Get tickets HERE.

Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long. The Brooklyn-based artist, who was born in D.C. and spent his formative teen years in Seattle, first allowed listeners to hear this irresistible inner monologue on his breakthrough independent project, Pink. The project’s lead single “Baby Blue” racked up over 3 million Spotify streams as his total tally approached 7 million. Along the way, peers such as Chelsea Cutler and FLETCHER lent support as critical acclaim came from Hilly DillyLyrical LemonadeOnes To WatchElevator Magazine, and more. Tastemaker Zane Lowe handpicked “Ways To Go” as his “World Record” on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Now, he transforms pop on his own terms.

KASKADE & MEGHAN TRAINOR “WITH YOU” – PSEUDO VIDEO – https://smarturl.it/WithYouPseudoVideo

(June 14, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – One is a legend responsible for smashing boundaries in electronic music, the other has set and broken records for women in the music industry. Together,KASKADE and MEGHAN TRAINOR make magic on “WITH YOU” (via Sony Music Columbia). Speaking of the song , KASKADE says “MEGHAN TRAINOR had the same effect on me as she did on the greater part of the human population when she came into the music scene. Her voice is infectious and distinctive and the soul behind that voice is an absolute authentic force-of-nature. When the opportunity came to work with her it was an easy yes for me. I knew we could put something together that would be fun, meaningful and above all, sticky enough that people can’t help but sing it after one listen. “With You” was a pleasure to put together with MEGHAN, and I can’t wait for everyone to start singing along.” Of the collaboration MEGHANsays, “It was a dream come true to work with KASKADE! He’s a legend and I truly love this song we did together!”

Their collaboration “WITH YOU” highlights KASKADE`s production prowess and ear for melody, along with MEGHAN TRAINOR´s award-winning songwriting (written alongside Sarah Aarons, Robert Gerongco & Samuel Gerongco). In keeping with the self-empowering and triumphant themes of her writing, TRAINOR sings about how she’s tired of wasting her time on men that leave her unsatisfied. KASKADE provides a powerful but sublime instrumental, turning her vocal into an irresistible chorus and laying down textures as fluffy as clouds.

DANCE MUSIC TITAN KASKADE & GLOBAL SUPERSTAR MEGHAN TRAINOR JOIN FORCES FOR SMASH SINGLE “WITH YOU” OUT WORLDWIDE JUNE 14TH, 2019!

KASKADE (Columbia) has been setting the bar for electronic dance music for decades. A multiple Grammy® nominated pioneer in more ways than one, KASKADE has brought his live sets to arenas around the world. Sold-out shows at venues like the Staples Center in LA and Barclays Center in NYC have made him one of the most successful DJs in history. He’s been voted the world’s best DJ on more than one occasion and has paved the way for electronic music in Las Vegas, taking a residency in 2010 that predicted the wave of superstar parties and events to come. KASKADE has had a number of smash hit collaborations with the likes of deadmau5 and Skrillex, and in May of 2019 released his third installment of the REDUX EP series, which held down the #1 spot on iTunes Dance/Electronic Albums chart. KASKADE’s signature sound has been omnipresent as he has headlined on the mainstage of every prominent music festival this season, and he shows no signs of letting up as his own curated two-day festival on the beach, Sun Soaked, is bending the internet’s capacity for how much people can look forward to July.

MEGHAN TRAINOR first made history in 2014 with her diamond-certified smash single “All About That Bass.” The GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist stands out as “one of only five female artists to achieve a diamond certification from the RIAA”—an honor bestowed upon only 15 other singles to date. Thus far, she has garnered a GRAMMY® Award and achieved seven multi-platinum singles and two platinum albums, sold out three world tours, penned multi-platinum hits for peers across pop and country, and received countless industry awards and nominations. Expanding her influence, she starred on FOX’s hit series THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom for two seasons. Following 2018 anthems “No Excuses” and “Let You Be Right,” she celebrated Valentine’s Day 2019 with the love-themed six-song Love Train EP, which paves the way for more surprises to come.

BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MORE SOON

(June 6, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – After breaking the news on social media earlier this week, GRAMMY® Award-winning Atlanta hip-hop superstar and multiplatinum trailblazer Future serves up his brand new EP, Save Me, tomorrow June 7. 

Get it HERE via Epic Records/Freebandz Entertainment

Save Me might just be his most vulnerable, visual, and vital statement yet. This time around, he widens the scope of his signature sound through integration of icy guitars and sparse beats. The opener “XanaX Damage” allows his warbling croon to take flight over delicate acoustic strumming. Meanwhile, “St. Lucia” splits between adlibs about “Tommy Lee and Pam” and “the preacher” as he weaves together a narrative of temptation calling. “Please Tell Me” hinges on a priceless chant of, “Please, please tell me it’s one of a kind,” and “Shotgun” blasts off a tightly wound hook. Everything crescendos towards the somber final transmission “Love Thy Enemies” where guitar entwines with the plea, “I need angels, I need angels, on its way off to the heavens.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

For the artwork and photography, Future enlisted the talents of none other than disruptive high-fashion house Enfants Riches Déprimés and its visionary founder Henri Alexander Levy [Daft Punk, Billie Eilish]. Together, they envisioned the gothic impressionistic palette seen on the cover, merging black-and-white portraiture with decaying urban charcoal. The piece speaks to the continued evolution of Future‘s presentation and cements him as a style trailblazer.

The seven-track project arrives hot on the heels of his seventh album, Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD—released in January. Not only did it bow at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 as his fifth solo offering to top the charts, but it also garnered acclaim from Rolling StonePitchforkConsequence of SoundXXL who gave it a coveted XL rating. In the wake of its release, he performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and Ellen.

As he innovates once more, Future arrives to save the game yet again. 

Be on the lookout for a lot more.

He performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, lit up Coachella, and headlined the massive “Nobody Safe” Tour. As he covered issues of GQRolling Stone, and XXLHndrxx graced year-end lists from PitchforkComplexEntertainment WeeklyNoiseyVariety, and more. He teamed with Young Thug for the collaborative epic Super Slimey, which captured #2 on the Billboard Top 200 upon arrival. Extending his reach yet again, he provided the soundtrack for the high-profile Superfly remake as he readies a barrage of new projects to be unveiled at his signature prolific pace. 2019 saw him win his first GRAMMY® Award in the category of “Best Rap Performance” for “King’s Dead” alongside Jay RockKendrick Lamar, and James Blake.

Black Godfather News Slider

Pharrell Williams releases original song “Letter To My Godfather” as tribute to Clarence Avant and his impact on the music industry and African American history.

THE BLACK GODFATHER is available today globally on Netflix and in select theaters

(Los Angeles, CA — June 7, 2019) Netflix and Epic Records announce the release of “Letter To My Godfather” written by Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, as featured in the Netflix Original Documentary The Black Godfather. The feature film releases today globally on Netflix and in select theaters. The song releases today at digital retail, get it HERE


The Black Godfather charts the exceptional and unlikely rise of Clarence Avant, a music executive whose trailblazing behind-the-scenes accomplishments impacted the legacies of icons such as Bill Withers, Quincy Jones, Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron, and Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Nicole Avant, a producer of the film and daughter of Clarence Avant, showed the film to Williams, who was instantly inspired by Mr. Avant’s pursuit of excellence for others. Williams began writing “Letter To My Godfather” the same evening. 


“Clarence Avant connects us all through his incredible impact since before I was born up until now,” said Williams. “He’s the godfather to so many of us — and not just African Americans, most of the industry.”

Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Reginald Hudlin, The Black Godfather hosted its world premiere on Monday in Los Angeles. Williams, along with Sean “Diddy” Combs, Jamie Foxx, Chadwick Boseman, Queen Latifah, Quincy Jones, Snoop Dogg, Laura Dern, Hank Aaron, Diane Warren, “L.A.” Reid, Terry Lewis, Jimmy Jam, Cedric the Entertainer, Babyface and more attended — many of whom appear in the film and have been impacted by Avant’s work firsthand.

ABOUT THE BLACK GODFATHER

For decades, the world’s most high profile entertainers, athletes and politicians have turned to a single man for advice during the most pivotal moments in their lives and careers, including Grammy Award® winners, Hall of Famers, a Heavyweight Champion of the World and two U.S. Presidents. That man is Clarence Avant.

The Black Godfather charts the exceptional and unlikely rise of Avant, a music executive whose trailblazing behind-the-scenes accomplishments impacted the legacies of icons such as as Bill Withers, Quincy Jones, Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron, and Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

Driven by a sense of equality, loyalty, and justice, Avant left the Jim Crow south behind to emerge as a powerhouse negotiator at a time when deep-seated racism penetrated every corner of America. Avant defied notions of what a black executive could do, redefining the industry for entertainers and executives of color, and leaving a legacy of altruism for others to emulate.

Directed by Academy Award® nominee Reginald Hudlin and featuring interviews with Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, Lionel Richie, Suzanne de Passe, David Geffen, Jerry Moss, Cicely Tyson, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Jamie Foxx, among others, The Black Godfather pulls the curtain back on the maestro himself, projecting a spotlight on the man who’s spent his entire career ensuring that it shined on others.

GRAMMY-NOMINATED PRODUCTION DUO CHRISTIAN RICH RELEASE “SHIBUYA (GHOST II)” FEATURING JADEN, VIC MENSA AND BELLY

[JUNE 7, 2019 – NEW YORK, NY] GRAMMY® Award-nominated production duo Christian Rich—consisting of twin brothers Kehinde and Taiwo Hassan—have unleashed their new single and music video “Shibuya (Ghost II)” today featuring Jaden [Smith], Vic Mensa and Belly. Get the track HERE via Epic Records and watch the Anime-inspired music video HERE.

After dropping debut album ‘FW14’ in 2015, with features from GoldLink, Vince Staples and Jay Sean, “Shibuya (Ghost II)” is a continuation of Christian Rich’s keen ear for collaboration, as well as sharpening their knack for eerie, yet warm club-ready rap.

On the genesis of the tracks, the guys explain: “We created this track while on a recording trip in LA.  When we got back to Berlin, we sent the track to Jaden, Vic Mensa, and later Belly.  Jaden finished his verses within a day or so.  We were looking for just one verse from each artist but Jaden did 3 verses and liked the song so much that they asked if they could release a version of song as well as, which we thought was dope and agreed to it.”

That ended up becoming “Ghost“, which racked up over 80 million streams. Fast forward to now,  “Shibuya (Ghost II) ” is the next chapter and Christian Rich’s take on the “Super Team” concept, similar to the NBA.

“Delivering songs with superstars all on one song, we see them like combining the Avengers.  Visually we created a short film concept to bring a new look to contemporary music but with nostalgic elements that connect the viewer to forgotten childhood adventures”. Accordingly, the music video is an anime-inspired journey through the Shibuya district in Tokyo: “We wanted to touch on the cartoons we watched as kids in Nigeria – G-Force, He-Man, stuff that’s nostalgic.”

ABOUT CHRISTIAN RICH

Production Duo Christian Rich is formed of twins Kehinde Hassan and Taiwo Hassan. They’ve been nominated for Grammys, and they’ve probably worked on some of your favorite songs. To list a few names: Childish Gambino, Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples, Drake – Christian Rich have been behind the production for some of these acts most forward-thinking tracks. If you really want the history, they’ve been making records since 2001, back when they were students and had moved back across to Chicago from Nigeria, where they’d spent a few years as kids. They sold beats at school, for as little as $25. Later, as part of a production company, they placed songs with the likes of Lil Kim, Foxy Brown and The Clipse. But after a short while they decided to set out on their own, launching with solo self-produced single “Famous Girl” in 2009.

This track caught the attention of Shay Hayley of N.E.R.D, who initially managed the duo. And as a result, their music found its way to Pharrell Williams too. He liked their stuff, and immediately brought them in to work on a record with Diddy – “he called Puffy right away, telling him ‘I’ve got the guys that’ll help you finish your album!” says Taiwo. From there, they’ve built up their discography of features and moved between Atlanta, Los Angeles and now to their current residence, in Berlin.

EPIC Fest 2016 – DJ Khaled, Future, French Montana & More!

One of the hottest tickets during BET Week was the second annual EpicFest at Los Angeles’ Sony Studios on Saturday (June 25). Among the performers who commanded the stage during the late afternoon four-hour fest were Future and DJ Khaled.

“I’m fresh off that Beyoncé stage,” DJ Khaled shouted to the elbow-to-elbow crowd. “Let me give you a taste of what that was like.”
In addition to running through a montage of his greatest hits, DJ Khaled brought out protégé Kent Jones, who performed his hot summer hit “Don’t Mind.” Then Busta Rhymes made a surprise appearance, ramping up the energetic crowd with his throwback classic ”Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See” as well as his verse from Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now.”

Future, who performed at last year’s inaugural EpicFest, returned this year as its headliner. The rapper performed his new hit “Low Life,” along with “Jumpman,” “Where Ya At” and more of his Hot 100 charting hits.
Rounding out the lineup were performances by rock group KONGOS, French Montana, Jidenna, Kat Dahlia, Timeflies and Lil Jon. Dancing around the crowd throughout the afternoon and into the evening: Epic chairman/CEO L.A. Reid.
