Daley Headed to Buckhead Theatre November 15 (Event)

British singer/songwriter, Daley, is set to head to Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta GA this weekend as a part of his current UK + US tour. The Bowe Inc presented show has already drawn in a great amount of fans who purchased tickets. However, tickets are still up for grabs for the time being. Daley will be performing with support from Conner Youngblood.

Daley is a singer/songwriter from Manchester. Like most dedicated, aspiring, young and talented artists, Daley worked tirelessly throughout his teens, using his bedroom as a recording studio while listening to Prince, Imogen Heap, Maxwell and Jill Scott for inspiration.
Last year Daley decided to take his chances and moved to London where he started performing in clubs and building a name for himself on the live music scene. A copy of his song ‘Rainy Day’ found its way to BBC Radio 1xtra’s Mistajam and Ras Kwame who started giving it heavy rotation on their shows.
Damon Albarn of The Gorillaz heard all the talk of this kid with the big soul voice, watched his performance of Maxwell’s ‘Pretty Wings’ on Youtube and reached out for Daley to feature on the Gorillaz single ‘Doncamatic’. Daley has since gone on to work with Estelle, David Banner and Wretch 32.
Daley now releases a 10 track mixtape called ‘Those Who Wait’ which contains favourites from his now legendary live sets and 8 new recordings including a collaboration with Marsha Ambrosius called ‘Alone Together’.
He recently released his debut album “Days & Nights” which features production from Dre of Dre and Vidal (Alicia Keys, Usher), Bernard Butler (Suede, Tricky) and Shea Taylor (Ne-Yo, Beyonce).

While tickets are going fast for this show, you can still purchase tickets HERE.

Event: Nipsey Hussle Talks “Victory Lap” + Headed to Nashville, TN | December 5

 

California emcee, Nipsey Hussle, will be heading to our home base of Nashville, TN next month. Nipsey will be performing an intimate show as Robert Higgins jumpstarts the “Live in The Studio” Concert Series on December 5.

Nipsey Hussle has always had a laidback persona that tied perfectly with his smooth, yet in your face delivery. Hussle talked with Hip Hop Since 1987 in an interview last month where he voiced his thoughts on the release of his highly anticipated album, Victory Lap. With his notable success of his $100 Crenshaw album, which Jay-Z spent over 10,000 in support, Hussle has been very strategic on his plans for his next release

I just think coming in the game when I came in,” Nipsey said. “Being signed to a major label. Going through everything I went through before music. Being able to get a name up. Build my brand. Build my fanbase. Make money off of what I love to do. You know what I’m saying? Build an independent movement. And these next moves we getting ready to make. Establish the clothing thing. Establish the outside businesses. The next move we gon’ make is gon’ be something game changing. And I think that just the title represents a moment in my life where I feel like I really reached a lot of my life goals. And having to set new goals. And having to look forward to what we doing with what we’ve just accomplished.”

New Music: Quanie Cash Brings Life to a Nashville Classic with “New Aight”

Allow us to take you on a trip back through the streets of ‘Cashville’ as we revisit one of the hottest tracks that was released in the early year’s of ‘Nashville Rap.’ When Nashville rapper, Quanie Cash’s past song “Aight” comes on, many can recollect memories with the release. This was a song that was welcomed by the entire city from high schools to college bands to local radio stations. Word-for-word, Aight was a track that stirred the pot of the urban culture in Nashville, TN. With help from such artists as Pistol, Young Buck, Starlito, Haystack, Bezzeled Gang, and Tha City Paper, the original scene of the hip hop culture of Music City was well respected.

Fast-forwarding back to 2014, Quanie Cash introduces us to his latest version of the hit single entitled “New Aight.” The track was produced by Greedy Money and does not disappoint as Quanie Cash delivers new punch lines over his traditional “aight” after every bar.
