The Cry Babies Are Back in Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta Season 2!

Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta returns to WEtv on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT; and this season it’s a clash of the generations, with the OG’s of Hip Hop ready to dish some tough love!

Shad Moss (aka Bow Wow), is officially off the market when a new love interest enters the mix, but there’s trouble in paradise when rumors and jealousy overwhelm their budding romance. Does Bow’s new boo and aspiring rapper, Kiyomi Leslie, have her heart in the game or is she just in it for the fame? The past rears its ugly head as fiery newcomers are bringing heat to the Atlanta scene and shaking things up, including R&B artist Masika Kalysha and hip hop artist, Lil Mama! But not everyone is happy upon their arrival… Masika has her sights set on stardom, but has unfinished business with her old flame, Bow Wow. Lil Mama, mentored by rapper MC Lyte, is ready to reinvent herself and record a follow-up to her hit “Lip Gloss.” But not everything is ‘Poppin’ when her past mistakes continue to haunt her.

Meanwhile, the wrath of Jhonni Blaze tornados through the Big Peach when the talented but explosive artist just can’t seem to get out of her own way. And when the legendary hip hop manager, Debra Antney, gets caught in the crosshairs of Jhonni’s firestorm, the battle lines are drawn. Mega producer Jermaine Dupri is up for a huge honor when he is inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame as he embarks on a So So Def 25th Anniversary tour with prestigious acts from his label. But not everyone will make the lineup, including JD’s surrogate son, Bow Wow. Meanwhile, Jermaine’s daughter Shaniah Mauldin struggles with her father’s lack of involvement in her career while she navigates a long-distance relationship with her longtime boyfriend, Willie. Ayana Fite, daughter of Beastie Boys mainstay, DJ Hurricane, is eager to get her fashion line off the ground without her father’s financial help but can she trust Atlanta’s newcomers to help launch her success? After serving her time in prison and on parole, Da Bratis ready to move on and wants to throw a ‘parole release’ party, but all hell breaks loose when the police are called! At 31-years-old, Bow begins to reflect on his music career and love life, where his soul-searching leads him to a dark place.

The cameras keep rolling when Bow Wow reaches his breaking point, destroying everything in his warpath…Tune in! Thursday, Oct 11 at 9pm ET/PT

Remy Ma “Wake Me Up” ft. Lil’ Kim Diss or Nah

The Track is HOTTTTTTT, but the Fans are barking…… What’s your thoughts on Remy Ma “Wake Me Up” ft. Lil’ Kim?

Jake Shears, “Creep City” is a Staff Fav

Shockingly enough, this song has made our playlist and is on repeat. Sooooo, naturally we had to share it with you!


Hello Friends and Family! It’s been awhile.  Like—a long while.  But lord, I’ve been missing you guys.  Like—REALLY MISSING YOU.  I’ve missed playing shows for you in funky clothes that I look back later and say: “What in God’s name was I thinking?” I’ve missed sweating on the front row.  I’ve missed everybody singing along and whooping it up.

Above all else, I’ve missed putting out new music.  And that, my dear friends, changes today!  Let me introduce you to Creep City.

Creep City is a pretty theatrical jam, with quite a few twists and turns. It has all the touchstones of the sound I’ve been conjuring. It’s a song about being in a literally scary transition, reflecting a moment of my life when I found myself without my long time co-horts, without New York City, having to reassess my surroundings.

I’ve not put out much out the last five years, (musically that is) other than a collaboration here or there. The thing is, I’ve been working this whole time.  But I promised myself that I would only put something out if it was really good. I mean REALLY good. There were a few years that I didn’t quite know what I wanted to say, unsure of direction, but I had faith if I kept at it, all would be revealed.

In the fall of 2015, I moved to New Orleans part-time. I needed a change of scene, and it’s a city I’ve always wanted to live in. I went down and began writing there and something funny happened: The good stuff started coming. And it kept coming. With the help of many talented musicians, I’ve been able to create the record I’ve been shooting for my whole life. It’s not only the most personal thing I’ve made, I truly believe it’s the best thing I’ve made. There was a moment in time,  that I really wasn’t interested in making a solo record. I found the notion a little cheesy. But I was talking with a friend one day and he said: “There’s no issue with you making a solo record– as long as it’s fantastic.”  I took that to heart.

There’s so much more to come in the next year, but I couldn’t wait any longer to give you a taste. If you want to hear more, I’ll be playing it all in NYC on Nov 12th at Elsewhere (tix here), and in London Nov 14th at Heaven (tix here). Please come, I want to celebrate with you.

And my time hasn’t been spent just making music. I’ve also  completed another labor of love that I’ll share details on shortly. AND will soon be announcing another way that we can spend a couple hours in a room together in a way that we’ve never done before. It’s the big ‘ol slew of stuff.

So I invite you to come along with me in my new ride. It’s gonna be a little different, but isn’t it always?  For those of you who have been waiting patiently, I have a feeling that this is gonna do the trick and then some. The cool thing, is that we’ve already had so many great times together, and as the saying goes: “You can’t make old friends.”

The world is upside down right now. In the thick of it, I feel that we still need tunes that make us smile, that make us wanna sing and dance like fools. The power of coming together and finding some common ground can’t be underestimated. Let’s have some goddamn fun.

I love you,

Jake Shears

Rae Sremmurd slays Cayler & Sons

Get into the latest in Fashion as Rae Sremmurd sets the trend with Cayler & Sons.  This cooperation marks the second time the Munich-based streetwear label has joined forces with the iconic rap duo, whose anthems like “Black Beatles” or “No Type” (among many others) have amassed a casual 1.8 billion views on YouTube alone. The two brothers from Tupelo, Mississippi have long eclipsed the status as a household name in rap, conquering Billboard’s Hot 100 #1 spot and holding it down for weeks.

The campaign’s photos, shot during Rae Sremmurd’s sold out SremmLife II Tour through Europe, capture the characteristic energy that the fashion-savvy brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi bring to each and every one of their performances while showing off highlights from CAYLER & SONS’ spring/summer ’17 collection as well as the newly launched All Day Denim program.
Check out the visuals and let us know what you will be buying as we get ready for Spring and Summer 2017.
