IMG 9766

In order to promote the release of his new album Heroes & Villains, multi-platinum producer Metro Boomin gave fans a one-time-only experience on Friday in LA and Miami that featured a live hologram of him creating a beat. In Miami, the interactive event was held at Patron of the New Miami and Cool Kicks on Melrose. With this, Metro becomes the first musician to have a hologram of themselves making music.

Metro Boomin published a digital comic book introducing the featured artists on Heroes & Villains, portraying them as heroic figures. Additionally, Metro is drawing influence from his preferred superhero, Batman, for the album launch promotion by lighting up the night sky with Heroes & Villains projections in Paris, London, Sydney, and Toronto.

You can see the projections and each comic book cover below.

DMX Performs His Signature Song “X GON’ GIVE IT TO YA” Backed With World-Renowned CZECH NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Experience the music of DMX like it’s never been heard before with this fully orchestrated version of X’s biggest and most popular song! “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” originally appeared as the lead single from the hugely hyped 2003 action film starring DMX and Chinese martial arts superstar Jet Li, Cradle 2 The Grave. Although the song and soundtrack as a whole were smashing success, the song’s appearance in the 2016 film Deadpool brought renewed attention and popularity to the track. From then up until his passing last year, “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” became the artist’s calling card track and remains his most streamed track to date.

Now, the song has been completely reimagined by a professional 30-piece orchestra, who matches X’s well known vocal bravado with their own bravura performance. Working from an arrangement created by Brazilian composer/producer Pedro Araújo, the track was recorded earlier this year by the renowned Czech National Symphony Orchestra and is being released today on all digital platforms. Be sure to also check out the accompanying music video, which captures the in-the-studio magic of the CNSO recording the track!

Cardi B To Take Over the Breakfast Club?

Cardi B Hair

While she was a guest on Power 105’s Breakfast Club, host Angela Yee, DJ Envy, and Charlamagne the God asked Cardi B if asked if she would be interested in hosting the morning show as part of her rollout for her new album release. 

The Bronx-bred rapper called into the Breakfast Club Thursday morning to give Angela Yee her best wishes as she prepares to embark on her new endeavor. Angela announced that she would leave the long-running morning show and host her final performance on Friday, December 2.

When  Charlamagne and Envy proposed the potential of Cardi hosting the show for a week, she enthusiastically replied, “Oh my God! I will tear that sh*t down!” Cardi B, who dropped her debut album Invasion of Privacy four years ago, has confirmed that her sophomore album is dropping in 2023. All 13 songs on Invasion of Privacy are certified Platinum, making Cardi the first female to achieve this feat. The accomplishment further extends the rapper’s initial record as the first female artist to have every track on an album RIAA certified Gold. Cardi B recently joined Irving and Jeffrey Azoff’s Full Stop Management, with Giant Music president, Shawn Holiday, playing an integral role in her making the jump. 

When asked how she felt about her upcoming album, Cardi confessed, “I just feel like just missing something,” she revealed. She admitted that she thinks she’s too much in her head and feels like she’s not ready to release the album, but she has to. She yelled, “I just need to put it out!” Cardi, who has never shied away from being honest, said she feels better when her body looks right and told a shocked Charlamagne that she recently went to the Dominican Republic to get her body done to feel good. 

Although Cardi did not specify when 2023 her new album will be dropping, we know her fans anxiously await the release. In the interim, fans can get their hands on Cardi’s final collection with Reebok, which she recently announced on her social media.
