— Migo’s star, Quavo, aims to broaden his reach with an all new Atlanta Hip-Hop inspired animated children’s series in the works.

The Migos have been known to get the bag (and flip it, and tumble it) by all means, but Quavo is stepping a bit out of his comfort zone with his latest venture. The Migos rapper has partnered with Marginal Mediaworks as well as Imagine Kids+Music, Motown, and Quality Control Music to produce a new animated children’s series. The series will be aimed at children ages 8 to 12 and will be based on the Atlanta Hip-Hop scene.

While Quality Control CEO, Pierre “Pee” Thomas, and COO, Kevin “Coach K” Lee, will act as producers on the show, Quavo will be its executive producer. When commenting on the upcoming series Quavo stated,

“I have long seen how Hip-Hop, as well as our music, really impacts kids… I’ve loved animation my whole life, whether on TV or in movies, and I wanted my first jump into this premium content world to be a show just for kids… It will definitely reflect the creativity, love and families in and around the NAWFside of Atlanta where we grew up.”

Coach K also added,

“What’s important and inspiring to me is that all kids will be seeing themselves in the faces and situations of these episodes… When I was growing up there was very little media that had brown and black skinned kids feeling heard or seen and the ones that did stood out and served as a crucial roadmap through our childhoods… I’m about inclusive stories that address all kinds of situations that kids of all ethnic and financial backgrounds experience and to give them a common tool to learn and grow… These episodes will impact because they are educational and positive but with the dopest visuals and sounds our iconic rap culture can provide.”

The series is expected to include brand new music, however further details regarding the series are currently being kept under wraps.

— Atlanta-based R&B songstress, Desjo, makes her case for having the summer’s hottest anthem with her latest single, “Follow You”.

Back in June, R&B newcomer Desjo released a spot-on cover of Normani’s “Waves”. But, before that, we hadn’t heard from her since her 2018 single, “Body”, and 2017 project, LOVE AND LUST. Now that she’s returned with a scorching new single and a vibrant new music video all at once, it’s pretty safe to say that it was well worth the wait.

The Mantra-produced “Follow You” chronicles Desjo’s wilingness to follow her other half to the ends of the Earth as long as he stays as real as he was when they met.

The music video, directed by Cinematic B, only made the song that much more appealing with its use of vivid colors, captivating shots, and enticing scenery.

— Coming fresh off the release of his third studio album, Big D.O.L.L.A, Portland Trailblazers All-Star Damian Lillard has shared his desire to win a Grammy award.

As the saying goes, “ball players want to be rappers and rappers want to be ball players”. The bad news is that most people on either side lack the actual skills to cross over to the other. But, every once in a while, we get a talent such as Damian Lillard, A.K.A Dame D.O.L.L.A, and we have to legitimately give credit where it’s due. Dame is easily one of the most elite players in the NBA and he’s also got BARS… but are they Grammy worthy?

In a recent interview with TMZ, Dame stated that when all is said and done, he’d love to have a Grammy under his belt, or at the very least, a performance at the BET Awards. Lucky for us, we get to see a current showcase of his musical talents since his latest album, Big D.O.L.L.A, was just released this past Friday.

 

Big D.O.L.L.A was released through Dame’s independent record label, Front Page Music and includes features from well-known artists like Lil Wayne, Jeremih, and Mozzy. The album also features his own artists Brookfield Duece and Danny from Sobrante.
