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

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.

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

Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me

Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez On Me

Tupac Shakur biopic, “All Eyez On Me”, at long last hits theaters June 16 following quite a while of planning and work by different people including veteran music maker LT Hutton, a maker of the film and a key main impetus behind the making of this film. The venture saw a few distinct executives travel every which way including John Singleton until veteran video chief and growing producer Benny Boom at long last took control to guarantee that the notorious existence of the late extraordinary hip-bounce and motion picture star was legitimately conveyed to the wide screen. What’s more, it’s a film that – whether you adore or not – should be seen, and not just beyond words hip-bounce fans. The short yet exciting and achieved life of Tupac Shakur is one for the records of history and this motion picture dives into all the symbol from each point.  DJ Hustle


The life of Tupac Shakur was one chock shifting, apparently restricting thoughts, perspectives, theories, and states of mind all put together within one persona. Thusly, the Gemini was diverse individuals at various circumstances.

Making a film about his whole life is more testing than your normal biopic and it’s anything but difficult to perceive any reason why individuals have had innovative contrasts en route in bringing “All Eyez On Me” to realization.  DJ Hustle

At one minute Tupac could be a progressive figure attempting to realize change in a world brimming with abuse and the following he could be in hooligan mode carrying on with the life of the roads. He was additionally an artist and an aficionado of Shakespeare (which is referenced all through the motion picture) and other scholarly rationalists which adjusted his reasoning as he was encompassed by the inconveniences of inward city life – really making him the rose that developed in the solid. Pac could likewise utilize his appeal to uplight the women in “Keep Your Head Up” and after that advance through the “tools” in “I Get Around.” Choosing which Tupac to acquire to light every scene more likely than not been a serious errand for the journalists and the executive. HustleTV

Everyone’s eyes are truly on newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr., given a role as the part of Tupac, and unexpectedly whose father Demetrius Sr. delivered Shakur’s “Hurl It Up” on the Makaveli LP. Demetrius Jr. is a dead-on Pac resemble the other alike confronting the trouble of depicting the late star as well as doing it in his first part as an on-screen character.  HustleTV

Before trying out for this part, Demetrius was working for Dish Network and laid off from his position with the organization. With the assistance of acting mentors and veterans like Hill Harper (given a role as the writer who interviews Pac all through the film) Shipp Jr. could shockingly catch the state of mind, feelings, and outward appearances of Shakur and truly makes an amazing showing with regards to for a performing artist with no related knowledge. LT Hutton and Benny Boom took a bet in throwing Shipp, however in viewing the film I feel that he remunerated their hazard with an exceptionally persuading depiction that will even satisfy Pac’s reliable fan-base. HustleTV

Ed Sheeran Gives Us His Dream Collaborator

Ed Sheeran, at only 26 years of age, exemplifies the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s Hal David Starlight Award maybe more than some other. Sheeran will get the respect, made in 2004 to perceive youthful musicians who have a huge effect in the music business with unique arrangements, at the corridor of popularity’s 48th acceptance and honors supper June 15 in New York.  Ed Sheeran Dream Collaborator HustleTV

Halfway through his current triumphant keep running at London’s O2 field, Sheeran talked with Billboard about the fragile adjust of which melodies to keep and which to provide for different craftsmen, the tune he wishes he’d composed, and his changing area schedule.


Your present hit “State of You” was initially proposed for Rihanna. How regularly do you compose a tune for another person you wish you’d kept for yourself?

Rita Ora has a melody turning out in half a month, I don’t comprehend what they titled it [they titled it “Your Song,” and it’s the top-drifting track in the U.K. this week], and that is a melody on the off chance that it hadn’t gone to her, I would’ve kept it and discharged it. “State of You” was begun initially for Little Mix and Rihanna. That was something I had as a main priority, in any case, I mean, similar to a few melodies were implied for me that wound up on other individuals’ ventures. A portion of the melodies on the One Direction collection unquestionably begun for me and wound up on the One Direction collection. DJ Hustle

Do you hear yourself in your melodies that are performed by different specialists?

The greatest number of times as I can if there’s a tune I have a composition credit on, I attempt to have some kind of component of me on it, similarly as a sort of mark. Regardless of the possibility that it’s me doing the support vocal or me playing the guitar, I simply like having that component on melodies I’ve been included in. Much like DJ Mustard would have “Mustard on the Beat” or Mike Will Made-It would have a Mike Will Made-It [beat] on a track, it’s simply having something that is out of sight. It’s subliminal, however it’s there. HustleTV

“The A Team,” your breakout single as an entertainer, has an effective story behind it.

It was composed in 2009, and at the time I was doing nearby gigs around London. One of my companions was running a destitute focus in East London to sustain the destitute over Christmas, and he stated, “Come and be the excitement there,” so I went and wound up talking with this young lady named Angel. I was 18 and hadn’t generally observed that a great part of the world. I experienced childhood in the wide open, and you don’t generally observe overwhelming, substantial medication compulsion in the farmland. You sort of simply observe drinking, so being in the city and seeing hard medication habit and the way it can influence somebody was a lovely educational thing. I was inhabiting an understudy house around a hour away shape London, and I got back and composing it and recording the demo on iMovie, on the grounds that I didn’t have whatever else to record it on. It came rapidly; it was a 20-minute melody. A few melodies can take a hour or two hours to compose or even an entire day, yet I do think the best tunes I’ve composed have been composed in 20 minutes.

These are few and far between, yet is there a melody that went poorly to end up noticeably a hit that is exceptional to you?

I expressed “I See Fire” for the Hobbit motion picture [The Hobbit: The Desolation on Smaug], and it never wound up motivating sent to radio since it turned out on a mark I wasn’t marked to, so nobody was permitted to push it to radio. I got the chance to compose and record and deliver everything on it, so it was the first occasion when I’d ever legitimately been a melody maker. I traveled to [New Zealand] and viewed the Hobbit film like outrageously fly slacked, and the CGI wasn’t in there yet, so it was very kind of harsh. And after that I went upstairs to this little studio and essentially composed this tune and did an unpleasant generation of it and got the chance to play everything else on it the following day and afterward flew home. It was all brisk, however it’s one of the melodies I’m most pleased with, on the grounds that I got the opportunity to do each and every component of it. HustleTV
