Compton Rapper, AD, the Modern Hero of West Coast Music

By | Featured, Music, News | No Comments

Compton Rapper, AD, the Modern Hero of West Coast Music

A modern day hero of the West Coast, 28 year old Armand Douglas, best known as AD is one of most prominent, upcoming rappers in Compton. To call Douglas a “ rapper,” is an understatement. In today’s generation of “Skr, skr” mumble rap, this artist strives to keep West Coast music alive. What makes Douglas stand out is his originality and commitment to LA sounding music. Moreover, his eccentric, shouting vocals take over the mic. “Bring a more aggressive different energy than rappers today. Every artist should feel like they are underrated in a sense. Stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to be different. Put God first,” says AD.

Douglas is distributed by legendary West Coast label,  Priority Records (Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre). In 2017,  Last Of The 80’s, produced by Sorry Jaynari hit #22 on iTunes rap charts. Even Kendrick Lamar gave praise to AD’s mixtape, Blue:89 “AD’s been doing his thing.” Douglas is a continuation of great hip-hop.

Album, By The Way (produced by Sorry Jaynari) depicts Douglas’ struggle growing up in the hood. “The streets don’t love you. All my life I’ve had to watch my back because of the neighborhood I grew up in and my affiliations,” expresses Douglas. AD holds it down for his community and stands out as a rising figure of greatness for the streets, to those who once lived the struggle, both buried and alive. DJ Hustle 


In album, Last of The 80’s, “Out The Hood” with Sorry Jaynari  reflects AD’s come up. Though he lives in Hollywood, he’s never abandoned his thug identity. Douglas is anything but egoistic or flashy. During dinner, he’s a regular, charismatic guy who jokes with his family in the living room and eats “A1 candy yams” at the dinner table. As humble as he is, this rapper won’t brag about his fame and lifestyle, nor does he put anyone down. Douglas is the kind of man who acknowledges everyone in a room, even if you’re not in his circle, if you will. You wouldn’t expect 21 Savage or Freddie Gibbs to be in the same room with AD, but that just goes to show how Douglas is respected by diverse artists, including those who aren’t just from the West Coast. “I think it’s dope to work with everyone. Everybody has a different story and music bridges it all together.”

The studio is a regular day for Douglas, with pizza, Worldstar, and cracking jokes with Freddie Gibbs and 21 Savage, “Ty Dolla $ign, we gon drop you. We got AD now. Tahaha!” jokes 21. No doubt, AD is hard worker though. He literally shoots video clips in the studio and records demos the same night from 9pm to 4am.

One thing that keeps his spirit alive for music is his daughter. From a troubled, broke kid on the block, in and out of jail, struggling to pay his phone bill, and no whip, Douglas strives to hustle harder and be a better man than ever. “My daughter made me value life more and in turn made me want to be more honest with my music,” expresses Douglas. On the mic and on stage, Douglas also carries his grandma’s spirit with him, who passed away last year.

AD’s not slowing down anytime soon and is only making moves to become the greatest of the West Coast. Douglas hopes to diversify his career and  build upon his craft, including acting. He’s bringing “the juice” to Hollywood, so get your glasses ready.

Ty Dolla $ign Makes America “Wavy”

By | Featured, Music, News | No Comments

Ty Dolla $ign Makes America “Wavy”

Whether it’s his music or his presence, there’s something about Ty Dolla $ign that makes you feel like there’s chemistry. The first time I wore my “Make America Wavy” hat to his show at Marquee, Las Vegas, he made eye contact and nodded, as a sign of respect that he understood my “waviness”. The second time I wore the same hat, he grabbed it and shook my head. Backstage, with DJ Mustard,  he noticed the hat for a third time and laughed. His first words to me were, “Make America wavy?”, before greeting me with a hug.

$ign literally transforms on stage. At first, he starts off the show with “Saved” (ft. E-40 in the album, Free TC) with a long trench coat, a wide brim hat, and some shades. He reminds me of a black Zoro, except with dreads, tattoos, and glasses. Towards the end of the show, he ditches the trench coat  and somehow ends up shirtless while he hypes the crowd and jumps up and down to Blasé. Dolla is the like the thug version of Cary Grant. Classic Hollywood actor, Grant, like Ty is smooth and suave, with English-tailored trench coats, and a wide-brim hat. With a simple smile or tilt of the hat, he is classy like Grant and melts the heart of the ladies. Dolla is sweet, but don’t let the innocent, shy smile fool you. He is a romantic, nasty bad-boy, like chocolate covered strawberries with a side of Henny. His voice is raspy, smooth, and sensual, but he makes, “Girl, I beat it up,” sound like an innocent, romantic sing-a-long. “Lil Baby” by DJ Mustard and Ty is like the R-rated version of Joe’s “The Things Your Man Won’t Do.”


Though Ty wears Dolla $IGN tatted on his neck, he’s underlooked as an artist, and perhaps only viewed as a “thug”. In a world where black men are masculinized or portrayed as arrogant gangsters, Ty is challenging that stigma, perhaps without even noticing. Dolla holds onto his identity as a former Blood, but does not place himself in a category of a “gangster” artist. He depicts that black artists are more than wearing chains, diamonds, grills, or flaunting Gucci belts and cash on IG. Like many of us, Dolla is a skater, a guitarist, drummer, a keyboardist, a father, a brother, a John Mayer fan, and a songwriter- in general, a regular guy. He wears thousand dollar suits and chains but “rocks Vans like a skater.” He “might drink the Henny,” to ratchet music in the club, but will get down with your uncle to Bootsie Collins or Al Jarreau at the family BBQ. Collaborating with artists including,  Skrillex, AD, Justin Timberlake, YG, Joe Moses, Swedish singer, Zara Larsson, and Fifth Harmony, to name a few, Dolla is one of the most versatile, original, and “wavy” artists of the generation. Regardless of their musical background or gang affiliation, ratchet or not, this man is happy to collab with any artist he sees as an “instrument” and can create with.


“What’s it like working with Ty?,” I asked in an interview with the producer, B. Ham from Dr. Luke’s Prescription Songs.  “I always am very grateful whenever I have the opportunity to work with him. He is very talented and a super hard worker. I always learn a lot when I’m around him,” expressed B.  Ham.

As Ty keeps winning, he keeps his circle close and brings his people with him. He’s got his brothers for life  if you will.  Backstage, you will find DJ Mustard and Tally (TC).  Even Compton rapper, AD, acknowledges him as a support system and “big brother.” Joe Moses pops up on stage to tell the DJ, “F’ that sh**”, bring it back, DJ!” when “Lil Baby” by DJ Mustard and Ty$ come on in the club. DJ Hustle 


It’s been 5 years since the beginning of his project, Beach House, an installment of Ty’s mixtape, in 2012. Beach House 3 following  Ty’s debut Free TC is not yet released (and Ty never fails to tease his fans), but his most recent songs from the project include “Love U Better” featuring The Dream and Lil Wayne and “So Am I” with Skrillex and Damien Marley.


From his grandma’s backroom to the big stage,  Dolla continues to make more waves in the music world. As he keeps breaking barriers in the in music, Ty continues to be true to himself as a music lover. He stands as one of the most original, “wavy” artists of today’s generation.

“What’s happening at this point in my career defies logic. Name another 48-year-old rapper with one Gold record, let alone three in the same year. My fans stretch much further than the Bay Area, further than just the West Coast. I brought so much shit to hip-hop. I’ve been relevant in each generation and each decade and I’ve done it as an independent artist.”

The Importance Of IAWTV Awards

The Importance Of IAWTV Awards

The Importance of the IAWTV Awards

By Tina Cesa Ward

Chairman of the IAWTV

Why do the IAWTV Awards matter? The answer to that has been the reason I, along with IAWTV Vice Chairman Sandra Payne, have formed this hardworking two-woman band and taken on this full time, volunteer gig to bring them back in 2017.


Please note that our submissions are open now and will close August 15th. The 5th IAWTV Awards will be held in Los Angeles at the Skirball Cultural Center on October 4th.  You can submit via Film Freeway. So go submit! 


Now that all that business is out of the way, lets get back to the question at hand.  For the benefit of easy reading and because everyone loves a list, I will answer this question with three simple reasons:


1.  Because the independent voice matters and it’s critical that it’s recognized.

I joined the IAWTV from its inception in 2009 and have always thought of it as an important organization formed to create community and support the independent spirit of the web series.  When the vote came in to create our own awards show, many were against the idea, including me.  But now that the landscape has changed I realize how important the IAWTV Awards are to bring visibility to shows that struggle to get noticed.  The IAWTV Awards was named by Variety as the Web Emmys and we’re happy to carry that nickname.  Yes, the Emmys has expanded to short form which I think is an amazing achievement for the web world, but independents aren’t entering the Emmys in large numbers, mainly because of the cost of entry. In the end, there are a lot more digital studio-supported shows entering (and promoting to get the vote) than independents.  We are the award show for the independent TV creators out there.  We’re proud that creators have credited the IAWTV with launching Hollywood careers. Julian De Zotti, co-creator of “Whatever Linda” said, “Winning an IAWTV Award opened the door to our development deal with The Mark Gordon Company to turn our series into an hour-long TV show.”


It’s critical for the independent voice to stay relevant in the world of web series that is now slowly closing its doors to independents. The new popularity of web series and the platforms that house them wouldn’t be in existence without the independents that took the chance — and continue to take chances — on this medium that now is old enough to have history but still young enough to cause a ruckus.


2.  Short form series, in both narrative and non-scripted, need an awards show that champions its achievements as independent television.


For many years all independent video has been thrown into one basket.  A dramatic scripted series is examined right next to a YouTube Influencer video, right next to cat videos, which is alongside a “how to” video.  Which one of these videos do you think loses the numbers game? But not all video is created for the same reason and looking at views is not the only means to weigh the value of a video.  Although scripted series generally bring in less of the web video views, they have a unique ability to generate new views and dedicated fans over a longer period of time unlike the other types of videos thrown into the web video basket.  They also have the ability to launch careers into scripted television more than any other video variety.  In short, independent television has a longer reach into other avenues and cannot be judged on its daily view count alone.  But with lower daily visibility comes the need for other ways to get the best of the best out to the masses and the IAWTV awards offers that visibility.


3.  Sense of community and support has value beyond measurement.

Coming from independent film, the only time I caught even a glimpse of community is when I went on the film festival circuit.  But even at that, it felt limited to a hang at an after party and maybe a couple of emails after.  When I jumped into the web series world in 2008, I instantly understood what community can be and how it could fuel that desire to continue to create.  Going out to web events has always been like going out and seeing your friends. More importantly, seeing your friends champion your work and having the ability to champion theirs builds an important network of creative contacts that remains unmatched in any other entertainment community. We have to preserve that and hang onto it.  Today, some of my best friends come from my connection to the web community.  Some of the early web series creators have gone on to bigger positions in the TV and digital world but are still reachable and are still fans of the web, many of whom we highlighted last awards show with our pioneer segments. You can watch the segments here:


Those segments highlight this community in the best way. It not only shows the success you can achieve by working in web series, it shows we have history. And maybe more importantly, it shows what the web world means to us and how supportive we are of one another. Join us at! We’re here for you.


Tina Cesa Ward is the Chair of the International Academy of Web TV and an Executive Committee member of The Caucus of Producers, Writers, and Directors. The IAWTV is now a division of The Caucus.  Ward was also the Co-Executive Producer, Co-Writer (along with Susan Miller) and Director of the series “Anyone But Me” which has over 50 million views and is available on Hulu, Amazon Prime, Fullscreen and YouTube.  Her other series work includes “Producing Juliet”, “Good People in Love” and “Bestsellers.”  She is the recipient of the first Writers Guild Award for New Media (along with Susan Miller) and has three IAWTV Awards for writing and directing. DJ Hustle

Jerry Jones and Kurt Warner Honored During Hall Of Fame Game

Honored During Hall Of Fame Game

It is that time of the year again and football season is right around the corner. Tonight the Hall Of Fame Game features the Dallas Cowboys and the Arizona Cardinals. During half-time, NBC Sports spoke with Hall Of Famer Inductee Jerry Jones on the present state of the Cowboys & the evaluation of the franchise since Jones bought the team in 1989.  After buying the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry decided to fire Hall of Fame Coach Tom Landry during a game of golf. Jones followed up that decision by hiring his former college teammate Jimmy Johnson and then traded his Pro-Bowl Running back Herschel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for five players and six draft picks.

Jerry Jones and Kurt Warner Honored During Hall Of Fame Game

Jerry Jones Kurt Warner Honored During Hall Of Fame Game

Those players were LB Jesse Solomon, DB Isiac Holt, RB Darrin Nelson, LB David Howard, and DE Alex Stewart. The draft picks turned into Hall Of Famer Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Kevin Smith, and Darren Woodson. At the time of both these decisions, Jones was criticized for his decisions making, but it turned out to be the beginning of the Cowboys dynasty in the early 1990s. Dallas would go on to win three Super Bowls in four seasons, but it did not come without some controversy. On March 30, 1994, Jimmy Johnson and Jerry Jones came to a mutual decision to part ways after five seasons together.

“We’ve had hours of candid discussions the last two days,” said Mr. Johnson, “and I can sincerely tell you that I feel better today about Jerry Jones as a friend than I have in our entire relationship. After our discussions, we mutually decided I would no longer be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.”- Dallas Morning News 

The Cowboys would replace Jimmy Johnson with Barry Switzer and would win their latest Superbowl in 1996 and they have not been able to reach a Superbowl in 21 years. DJ Hustle

Former Arizona Cardinal and Hall Of Fame Inductee Kurt Warner will be honored in this year’s Hall of Fame Ceremony. Warner began his pro football career as a fourth string quarterback for the Greenbay Packers in 1994, he would later be released. Following Warner’s release, he began working as a grocery store checker making “$5.50 per hour.”  That would not stop Kurt from chasing his dream of being an NFL quarterback. He would move on to play in the Arena Football League and Warner was able to catch the eye of NFL Scouts and would land a back role with the St.Louis Rams at the time.  After an injury to Trent Green, Kurt Warner was able to finally get his opportunity to start in the NFL and turn himself into the MVP of the league.  In 2000, Warner and what is now known as the “Greatest Show On Turf” would win his first and only Superbowl against the Tennesse Titans.  Kurt Warner would make two more Superbowl appearances, but he was able to take home those trophies losing to Tom Brady in 2002 and Ben Roethlisberger in 2009.

As for the final score of the Hall of Fame Game, the Arizona Cardinals would fall to the Dallas Cowboys 18-20. DJ Hustle

Los Angles Will Host The 2028 Summer Games DJ Hustle

Los Angles Will Host 2028 Summer Games

Los Angles Will Host The 2028 Summer Games

It has been announced, that the city of Los Angeles will host the 2028 Olympics. It is the first time in 32 years, that the United States won the bid to host the Olympics. The Olympics will take place in Los Angeles California, for the first time since 1984.  The United States has been trying to host the summer games again since the late 90s games in Atlanta Georgia.  Los Angeles lost the bid to the 2024 Olympic games to Paris France, but as the old saying goes good things come to those who wait.

“It has been certainly a roller coaster,” L.A. bid chairman Casey Wasserman told The Times, adding that IOC officials “showed a real willingness to be thoughtful and creative.”

L.A.’S bid committee has estimated it would cost $5.3 billion to stage the Games and has predicted it can track all expenses through revenues such as sponsorships and ticket sales.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who was at the forefront of spearheading the city’s effort, said the terms of Monday’s agreement should outweigh any increased uncertainty that comes with committing to a major event more than a decade in advance.

The IOC has predicted it will chip in $1.7 billion of its broadcast and sponsorship revenues to Paris in 2024.

Its contribution could rise to at least $2 billion by 2028 because of adjustments to the amount of sponsorship money L.A. would receive for the summer games.

The IOC has already agreed to give the city of Los Angeles an advancement of $180- dollars immediately.

For 2028, the IOC has agreed to advance L.A. a $180-million advance immediately. That is expected to cover the organizing’s committee’s costs for operating an extra four years and pump as much as $160 million into youth sports throughout the city.

Los Angeles bid estimate includes a $487.6 million contingency — money that would be set aside to compensate for the kind of cost overruns that have plagued recent Games, leaving the hosts with substantial deficits.

“Olympic experts have said that L.A. could be different because its plan relies on existing venues such as Staples Center, Pauley Pavilion, and the Coliseum.” David Wharton It avoids spending billions to build new stadiums and arenas.  We will have to see what comes from the final agreement between all parties involved. DJ Hustle

Future Hall Of Famer Sue Bird Making History


Fresh off her first All-Star appearance Seattle Storm’s Forward Breanna Stewart drops 23 points on 7-for-11 shooting, including the first eight points for the Storm. She also recorded a career-high six blocks and dished out five dimes. With 7:08 left in the first quarter, Breanna Stewart scored her 1,000th-career point. She becomes the third Storm player (Jewell Loyd, Alysha Clark) to accomplish that feat this season. In just her 54th-career game, she ties WNBA great Tamika Catchings for the fourth fastest in league history to attain this feat. (Cynthia Cooper, 45 games; Seimone Augustus, 46 games; Elena Delle Donne, 52 games; Tamika Catchings, 54 games)

With a 1:38 left in the third, Sue Bird

hit a midrange jumper to move past Lauren Jackson (2,090) for the most field goals made in franchise history. She now has 2,091 made field goals for her career. Sue Bird, also dished out five assists while adding eight points. She is currently 60 dimes away from passing former WNBA great Ticha Penicheiro for first on the WNBA’s all-time assist’s list. Bird continues to make her way up the all time steal’s list as well currently sitting eighth surpassing 600-career steals in her 15 active seasons in the WNBA.

Jewell Loyd had a  strong outing scoring in double figures for the 18th time this season, finishing with 13 points and a 2-for-5 effort from behind the arch.

Crystal Langhorne continues her double-figures streak to 12 straight games. She posted 12 points and grabbed a team-best 10 rebounds to seal her second double-double of 2017.

Los Angeles’ frontcourt of Candace Parker (17 points, 10 rebounds) and Nneka Ogwumike (13 points, 10 rebounds) anchored the Sparks 39-28 edge on the glass, as the Sparks weathered a late Storm comeback on the way to assuming the season series with a 68-60 win.

Los Angeles scored 21 points off of Seattle’s turnovers, and the Sparks bench outscored the Storm’s reserves, 25-2. DJ Hustle
