The annual REVOLT Summit x AT&T is back and going entirely virtual and free of cost for a 3-day summit from October 23-25. Leading up to the flagship event, starting September 19, REVOLT and AT&T will premiere a digital content series ROAD TO SUMMIT - THE WORLD IS YOURS, co-produced by Teyana "Spike Tey" Taylor & the Aunties.
In response to the pandemic, the virtual event and content series will continue the REVOLT Summit x AT&T tradition of creating viral, cultural moments with the young, Black, and vocal audience at the center of history-making events, instilling the idea that "the world is yours."
The ROAD TO SUMMIT - THE WORLD IS YOURS is an original series that highlights emerging artists, entrepreneurs and creators sharing the trials and triumphs of chasing success. Offerings will include five (5) digital episodes on important narratives surrounding Hip Hop and the current cultural climate. ROAD TO SUMMIT episodes will be available to stream at no cost on the REVOLT Summit app and will be released weekly, leading to the 3-day summit in October. This accompanies the return of one-on-one mentoring with AT&T's Office Hours sessions and all new Executive Chats, virtual group conversations with leading industry executives, including Ghazi Shami, CEO and Founder of EMPIRE.
"The goal of the REVOLT SUMMIT is to empower and inspire the next generation of leaders," said REVOLT Chairman Sean Combs. "Last year, we had huge success in Atlanta and Los Angeles, and this year we are opening up the REVOLT SUMMIT to the world. This is a pivotal moment in history and we are bringing together the best minds in entertainment, political activism and business to share their experiences, educate and motivate our community."

        How The Blues Transformed 
                       Into Hip-Hop 

 
Where pain and loss reside, there is blues music. Although blues music could trace as far back as any amount of lamentations over the years, its seeds were sown in the deep south. According to Musical U, "The genre originated during the pre-Civil War era in the southern United States", sung from the oppression and pain in slavery. The raw emotions would grow up in the Mississippi Delta and began to be recorded for wider consumption. The sounds were rural and country, loaded with twangy guitars, wispy harmonica runs, and a simple tempo to display anything from love and religion to economical turmoil and racial injustice. At its core, it is a genre of heartbreak and crushing reality but also very familiar to the human experience where it can almost become reminiscent of home to Southern folks, especially Black southerners. As it spread across the nation and new genres emerged from blues, its fingerprints are all over much of the music we adore today like R&B and rock. Now, though, we see it prominently displayed in the biggest genre in all of music, hip-hop.
Similar to blues icons like B.B King, Robert Johnson, T-Bone Walker, and Muddy Waters, hip-hop is a genre birthed from Black people. It would detail the livelihood and gives a glimpse to what every day looks like from its sound. Initially, hip-hop was a much simpler sound in its inception. However, with time, it has evolved into something much more thoughtful than the Sugarhill Gang origins. The first example of bluesy rap music that comes to mind is the Geto Boys' "Mind Playing Tricks on Me", one of the most depressing, anxiety-filled songs in music history.

Alicia Keys Launching $1 Billion Fund To Support Black-Owned Businesses



Grammy award-winning songstress Alicia Keys has launched a $1 billion endowment to support Black businesses and communities. The NFL will be among the first to contribute to the organization. 
Billboard reports the fund aims to support Black-owned businesses as the coronavirus pandemic restricts global economic markets and protests against police brutality have erupted around the country.
Keys said the fund originated from an idea to help evolve protests into tangible action and support for Black communities. The singer said she hopes to continue to develop the fund over the years, eventually exceeding the initial $1 billion endowment. Although none of the additional partners beyond the NFL have been announced, the "Underdog" singer intends to create a multi-sector partner pool for the fund.
"The initial goal of $1 billion is to ensure a substantial commitment," Keys said. "Even with that it does not come close to closing the economic gap. The next steps are to reach out to different industries to invite them to invest in racial justice and create a multi-billion dollar endowment across business sectors."
On Thursday, the singer announced the partnership with a performance of "Love Looks Better" to kickoff the NFL's season.

         CHICAGO RADIO HOST FIRED

A Chicago radio host has been fired after he remarked that an ESPN sideline reporter's outfit belonged at a porn awards show. 
Dan McNeil of Chicago's 670 The Score ridiculed the ensemble Maria Taylor donned for Monday Night Football in a tweet during Monday night's face-off between the Giants and the Steelers.  
'NFL sideline reporter or a host for the AVN [Adult Video News] annual awards presentation?' McNeil wrote alongside a screengrab of Taylor. 

_Obrigado_ Feat. Henri Don Jeany _ Sam Carroll - GEORGE MITCHELL


Based out of Little Rock, Arkansas, veteran musician, and professional drummer George Mitchell is on the brink of releasing his debut single titled Obrigado on April 19th, 2019. Mitchell has an exceptional passion for music and has toured the world with his instrument of choice, namely, the drums.

Mitchell's debut single, Obrigado, also features the creative wits of Henri Don Jeany and Sam Carroll. The track has a funky vibe emerging from its prolific melody. Obrigado begins with a keyboard measure followed by an enchanting guitar riff amid the tune's overtones of jazz and soul. In certain sections of the track, we find the bass in conversation with the keys and in later sections the guitar. Every instrument's voice is sharply expressed. George Mitchell does an excellent job in hosting this exotic dialogue of rhythm with a superb drumming performance. Obrigado is a perfect debut and testimony of George Mitchell's love for the art.

'Frederick 'Toots' Hibbert, a Founding Father of Reggae, Dead at 77


 
 
Toots Hibbert, the Grammy-winning Jamaican singer behind seminal reggae tracks like "Pressure Drop" and "54-46", died on Friday.
Hibbert, born Frederick Nathaniel, was surrounded by family when he died peacefully at hospital in Kingston, Jamaica, said a statement put out on his social media channels.
He had been hospitalized with complications from COVID-19 and put in a medically-induced coma earlier this month, reports the Jamaica Gleaner, though his family have not revealed the cause of death.
Hibbert was the front-man of Toots and The Maytals, a group that ushered in the roots rocksteady reggae sound that was borne in Jamaica in the late 60's and quickly went on to captivate music lovers the world over. Hibbert is also credited with coining the term reggae with the track "Do The Reggae," which he wrote in 1968 with his backing band.
His music was also informed by the R&B and soul music being produced by Black Americans, and his reggae-infused covers of standards like "I've Got Dreams (To Remember)" and "I Can't Stand The Rain" are celebrated parts of his oeuvre.
iHeart, Charlamagne Launch New Podcast Network

iHeartMedia and syndicated radio host Charlamagne Tha God have jointly launched The Black Effect Podcast Network. The shows on the network, curated by Charlamagne, will focus on diverse perspectives.
 
"Blackness has an immediate, culture shifting effect on everything," said Charlamagne. "Blackness controls the cool. Blackness is the culture, but Black Voices are not monolithic. The only way to appreciate the diversity of thought and experiences in Black culture is to build a platform for those voices to be heard. Unapologetically Black experiences, unapologetically Black thought, unapologetically Black ideas. Black, Black, Blackity Black, Black, Black, Black. Everything Black. Black Everything. The vision for The Black Effect is to amplify, elevate, and empower emerging and established talent. Our goal is to shift the narrative from Black creators signing transactional deals, to instead forming legacy partnerships that build generational wealth while allowing each creative to have an equitable stake in their future. As a long-time partner of iHeart, it's an honor to make history with them."
"As our country's number one audio company and podcaster, we have both the responsibility and the opportunity to give new voices a massive audience platform for creativity and innovation-and for important ideas that need to be heard," said Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO of iHeartMedia. "Charlamagne Tha God is an unparalleled multi-platform creator whose impact extends across radio, digital, social, TV, events and podcasts. He is uniquely qualified to bring The Black Effect Podcast Network to life, and we are lucky and honored to be his chosen partner and to continue our successful partnership of over a decade in this exciting and fast-growing arena."

Soul Blues Legend Roy C. Hammond


Hammond, best known as Roy C, started his career with the vocal group The Genies, who had a minor hit in 1958 with the song "Who's That Knockin.'" His 1965 song "Shotgun Wedding" which he wrote and performed was a top 20 hit on the Billboard R&B chart and was considered somewhat provocative for that era. The song was an even bigger hit overseas in the UK. Hammond later released a series of minor hits for various record labels. In 1973, he wrote and produced the song "Impeach the President" for the Honey Drippers, a group of high school students from Queens. The song was about President Nixon and the Watergate scandal and features  one of the most sampled drum tracks in hip hop.
