Def Jam to Release ‘Direct Deposit, Vol. 1’ Compilation, Welcomes New Signee Amir Obe

By | Music, News, Video | No Comments

HustleTV Music News Def Jam Records will be rolling out a star-studded compilation album called Direct Deposit Vol. 1. The 10-track set hosts hits from esteemed veteran rappers like 2 Chainz (“Big Amount” featuring Drake), Pusha T (“Circles”) and YG (“I Wanna Benz”) as well as buzzy newcomers Desiigner (“Tiimmy Turner Remix”), Dave East (“Stove Top”) and latest signee Amir Obe (“No Peace”).

The rapper — who reps both his native Detroit and second home Brooklyn — delivered Internet favorites like his 2015 EP Happening in the Grey Area and this year’s Love in the Hills EP (standouts from the projects included “Before The Vomit” and the Partynextdoor-assisted “Truth For You”). He also notched a collaboration with Drake on the Toronto MC’s “Star67,” off 2015’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. HustleTV

“I’m honored to be part of the Def Jam family,” he tells Billboard over e-mail. “To contribute to a legacy & brand that has created history with some of my favorite artists is a blessing. Def Jam prides itself on authenticity & I couldn’t have found a better home.”

YG Is On the Run From Police in ‘One Time Comin’

By | Music, News, Video | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…. Despite releasing his album Still Brazy only a few months ago, YG took to Twitter on Tuesday night to announce that a new project will be “koming soon.”

YG performs at The Forum on July 6, 2016 in Inglewood, Calif.

YG Pays Tribute To Victims Of Police Brutality In ‘One Time Comin’

As fans await YG’s forthcoming mixtape, he released a visual for his anti-police anthem “One Time Comin”

The video opens with a man, dressed in all-black, frantically running away from the hidden figure recording the chase with a body camera, which serves as the central theme of YG’s anti-police anthem “One Time Comin” and the theme continues to unfold throughout the video.  HustleTV

The visual alternates between body camera and police surveillance footage as the cameras continue taunt the runner. YG races through the desert in a high-speed chase with his leading lady riding shotgun as they attempt to escape the police cars trailing behind them. Though YG was eventually surrounded by cops, he ended the video with his middle finger in the air — a clear symbol of his disdain toward the officials.  HustleTV

DJ Mustard Releases ‘Cold Summer’ Album Feat. YG, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, Rick Ross & More

By | Music, News | No Comments

HustleTV Music News….  DJ Mustard has corralled hip-hop and R&B A-listers for his sophomore album Cold Summer (Roc Nation), the follow-up to his star-studded 2014 debut 10 Summers.

After releasing the Nicki Minaj and Jeremih-assisted jam “Don’t Hurt Me,” Mustard and his popular tagline — “Mustard on the beat, ho” — sprinkle the 13-track set. Cold Summer opens with the West Coast-flavored banger “Been a Long Time” featuring frequent collaborators and fellow California reps YG and Ty Dolla $ign (the three are set to collaborate on Mustard and YG’s forthcoming joint ‘tape 400 Summers).

Mustard keeps the headphone party bumping with club-friendly joints alongside Nipsey Hussle (“Ridin’ Around”), Migos’ Quavo (“Want Her”), Young Thug (“Party”), Meek Mill (the DMX-referencing “What These B-tches Want”). Perhaps the most surprising features come from R&B savants John Legend and James Fauntleroy who appear on the final track, the smooth farewell to summer called “Another Summer,” which also co-stars Rick Ross. His 10 Summers imprint signee Ella Maialso appears on “10,000 Hours.”  HustleTV

“This past year I’ve grown a lot, both as a producer and a DJ. You can hear it in my music,” says Mustard in a statement. “Touring oversees with Rihanna and seeing the fans I have all over the world inspired by me – it was motivation to release this album and not let them down.”

DJ Mustard & YG Celebrate Reunion, Present New Labels at ‘Allies Dinner’ in L.A.

By | Featured, Interviews, News | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…. YG and  DJ Mustard are toasting to a new chapter in their personal and professional friendship. Following their recent reconciliation after settling a royalties dispute earlier this year, the hip-hop tag-team held a private candlelit “Allies Dinner” party in Los Angeles’ House of Macau on Thursday night (Sept. 15) where they were joined by friends including Nick Cannon, rapper Kamaiayah and singer Sevyn Streeter .

“We started with each other before all the industry s–t,”.  “We’ve been through a lot of f—ed up s–t the past year and a half so we finally got our s–t right and we back like how we was from day one.”

But the event, which featured on-the-spot GIF creators by Giphy and specialty D’ussé cocktails, was also a way for the longtime friends to commemorate a new phase in their careers. “This ‘Allies Dinner’ was about me and YG coming together and bringing our labels together,” Mustard added.

In between plates of kung pao chicken and pan fried salmon, Mustard and YG presented their label rosters. Representing Mustard’s 10 Summers imprint was British songstress Ella Mae. “[She’s a] great artist,” Mustard said. “Super talented. Super hungry. Super everything. She’s a superstar.” HustleTV

Meanwhile, Santa Barbara, California’s Sad Boy and Compton’s Slim 400 repped YG’s 4Hunnid Records at the function. Speaking of Sad Boy, YG said Snoop Dogg once advised him to sign a Hispanic artist given his influence with Latino audiences. Two years later, he found Sad Boy, a Mexican-American MC. “We f–k with Sad Boy heavy,” YG said. “He really represents for his people, his culture.”

YG and Mustard also announced that L.A.’s RJ is their joint signee. Mustard called him a “superstar” while 4Hunnid Records President Brandon Moore said, “RJ has been able to build his OMMIO brand in the streets.” Moore also said that he’s been “a real factor in L.A.” Fans looking for more from the 400 signees won’t have to go too far. Both RJ and Sad Boy will join Kamaiyah as acts on YG’s F–k Donald Trump Tour, which kicks off Sept. 18 in San Diego. HustleTV

For Moore, these signings signify a fruitful future for YG and Mustard. “For them to take it to the next level to open up the doors and create platforms for new artists is incredible,” he said. “This is just the beginning of a 20, 30-year run.”

While making moves in the boardroom, Mustard and YG haven’t forgotten about the studio. The pair recently worked on three bangers for Mustard’s upcoming effort Cold Summer that the producer is excited to share. HustleTV

“”Been a Long Time” is one of the first songs we did in us getting back cool,” Mustard said of his collaborations with YG. “‘Want Her’ is just the typical YG that people haven’t heard in a long time. Ratchet meets YG again. He’s been political for a long time so this is his ratchet s–t. The other one is ‘Party’ and it’s party music with him and Young Thug. It’s all great songs.”

As if that wasn’t enough, the pair is also currently working on a joint project titled 400 Summers, a nod to their two label names. “I don’t know when it’s coming out, but we in the studio and it’s a blessing,” said YG. “We be having fun. This shit ain’t work to us. It’s like a dream.” YG also said that fans can expect music that “turnt up.” “Everything is slappin’,” he added.

As the evening came to a close following a custom cake unveiling, Mustard reflected on the lesson learned from his reconciliation with YG. “Don’t let this music industry or any industry come between friendship,” he said. “Just stay focused on your goals. We did and now we’re here.” HustleTV

YG & 4Hunnid Records Sign Multi-Million Dollar Joint Venture With Interscope:

By | Featured | No Comments

HustleTV Entertainment News  Six years after his breakout hit “Toot It and Boot It” hit No. 11 on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart, YG  has turned his lifestyle into a business. As the CEO of his label 4Hunnid Records (launched in 2015), the Compton native, born Keenon Jackson, tells Billboard exclusively that he and his longtime friend and partner Brandon Moore, the label’s president, have signed a multi-million dollar joint venture with Interscope Records.

After meeting Joie Manda, a former Def Jam executive and current president of urban music at Interscope Geffen A&M, around 2013, YG says Manda paired him with his A&R, Randall “Sickamore” Medford, for his chart-topping 2014 debut My Krazy Life and has followed the 4Hunnid movement since. HustleTV

“After the album came out and had its success, Joie was really behind our whole movement and everything we had going on,” the Def Jam artist explains over the phone. “[Joie] knew what I did, who I had something to do with. With the album being a classic, [DJ] Mustard popping off, Ty [Dolla $ign] popping off ’cause we all from the same camp, he felt like I could have my own label and do the same things that we did for ourselves and other artists.” Manda adds, “I’ve gotten to know YG and his team over the past few years and have full belief in their vision to build a label that moves the culture.”

Before YG, Mustard and Ty Dolla $ign catapulted to individual success in 2014, the West Coast crew was initially in talks with Capitol Records about signing a group label deal but Joie had different plans for YG. “He told my lawyer, ‘Tell YG I’ll give him his own label deal,'” YG recalled. “So Mustard ended up doing his own thing and I ended up doing my own thing.” (To note, DJ Mustard produced majority of My Krazy Life. He and YG reunited for the forthcoming 400 Summers mixtape.)

A year and a half ago, the multi-million dollar joint venture (YG declined to offer a specific amount) came together with Interscope Records. “YG has an unbelievable eye for talent and an innate understanding of what people want to hear,” John Janick, chairman and CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M, tells Billboard. “His career as an artist proves that. I know 4Hunnid and Interscope will do great things together.”

For YG’s longtime partner, Brandon Moore, the deal represents the next phase of the rapper’s business. “I’ve been a part of YG’s management team since 2009 so I been there through the inception of a bad deal,” he says. “I’ve seen him progress and take advantage of a situation and go from an artist that nobody believed in, that everybody thought was a one-hit wonder to a multi-platinum artist and one of the most respected artists in the business. I’ve seen him grow as a businessman and I feel like he hasn’t even scratched the surface of his potential.”

Ask YG and he says 4Hunnid Records is on “some Roc-A-Fella shit,” representing the West Coast lifestyle while also presenting opportunities to artists, producers and songwriters who have come from struggle. In addition to running his non-profit organization, 4Hundred Waze, embarking on his headlining FDT tour this fall and dabbling in retail with his own clothing line, YG continues to go brazy on his resume. Below, the rapper talks about the joint venture, the artists he’s looking for and his vision for the label.

What do you think Joie saw in you as a potential label boss?

Joie just knew about my success [and 4Hunnid’s] success story. He knew all the people that was moving with me. He brought Sickamore up under him and you know Sick is a whole part of my situation so he just seen that it’s not too many people from the streets that made it out the West Coast — the new West Coast. He saw that we knew what to do like attack the Internet and the streets, make hit records, touring — we was covering all bases. There’s a lot of artists that don’t really know everything about the music business like they’re all just scrapping through to get on but Joie knew we knew that because we did it for ourselves. It’s just the whole camp — me, Ty and Mustard — really was homies before everybody had their success. Just three motherf–kers who popped off and became successful from nothing — that’s big.

You mentioned that you, Ty and Mustard were speaking with Capitol Records about a group label deal. What came of that?

We was having a conversation with Capitol Records about a group label deal. That really ain’t work out but we all agreed that we was gonna do our separate things but we still gon’ rock how we rock. We all homies — we ain’t gonna let our business decisions f–k that up so everybody was like, ‘Yeah, for sure, let’s do it.’

What’s the significance of the 4Hunnid name?

I mean it’s something I’ve just been pushing since I started rapping. I been yelling out “4hunnid.” That’s just like my lucky number. There’s so many ways to get rich and it means “forever one hunnid.” That’s something we real big on — just being real, authentic, being yourself, not letting this lifestyle change you. That’s something we’ve been real good at.

Who are some of the signees you have now? I’ve heard Sad Boy was in the mix.

We ain’t really got none of that locked in yet but we working on it. We got a couple of artists we looking at and trying to figure it out. With Sad Boy, I was trying to bridge the situation between Spanish and blacks [on the song “Blacks & Browns”] and the relationship that we got. I wanted to put out the positive side like, ‘We f–k with Hispanics.’ We grow up with them, we share the same culture basically. HustleTV

Do you envision 4Hunnid Records being a predominantly West Coast roster?

Starting off, we for sure gonna have West Coast artists because we’re West Coast-based label. Before the world believes in you, you gon’ have to pop some shit off from your section and your culture. Then when that happens, we gon’ be able to go get who we want from where ever and see where they from but I’m really trying to pop off someone from my side first.

Now does this mean you have your own office at Interscope Records?

Nah, we really ain’t got an office at Interscope. We don’t need an office ‘cause we never there. We work from the road, the crib, at the studio.

What would you say your day-to-day duties are?

I’m the CEO and creative director so my shit I do on a daily basis is I get on n—-s’ bumpers about shit. [Laughs] I get on everybody ass like I just oversee everybody’s marketing plan, rollout plan, the goals we trying to accomplish, the touring, all that type of shit. I’m making sure it happen in a timely fashion and I’m doing my thing as an artist.

How would you describe your business philosophy?

Flood the market, stay on they neck!

Who taught you that?

Myself. That’s [4Hunnid’s] blueprint. We was dropping projects once a year. That’s not really a lot, though. I’m about to go even harder than that but that’s why I was successful because I always had records going in the club and then they really caught [outside of the club]. When they started popping, I’d drop another ‘tape. I kept hitting them with the music, the videos, dropping my projects with videos. Same day my shit dropped, I dropped another video. That’s basically how to use the game now. Motherf–kers is just dropping projects unannounced and they just dropping them with videos and touring. We’ve been doing that since 2010.

In our previous interview, you mentioned entering f–ked up label deals. How will you ensure your artists are well taken care of?

That’s mandatory like we not gon’ put nobody through f–ked up situations because we been through the fucked up situations and we know the outcome of the fucked up situations so we not tryna have no bad blood with none of our artists. We trying to be known and respected as real businessmen that came from nothing. We gonna make sure everybody right. The 4Hunnid label is like a family. We don’t just f–k with people. If we f–k with you, we really f–k with you. It’s gon’ rub off on the business side too.

What do you think is the key difference between 4Hunnid Records and other artist-owned labels?

We different. We 4Hunnid, you know. We like red. [Laughs] We from the West Coast. Like I don’t think nobody could get it how we tryna do it on the West Coast. Ain’t nobody did especially in artist relations. We ain’t f–kin with you if we feel like you can’t be around for 20-plus years. It’s a lotta other artist-owned labels who want artists with hot singles like for right now and that’s cool because that’s the easy money but we getting brands. We teach artists how to build brand and be businessmen and business ladies. It’s just bigger than being an artist and putting out an album. I know there’s a lot of motherf–kers who ain’t taking the time out to spend with their peoples and break shit down from the bottom with them about all of this type of shit. In the record business, if you sign an artist that don’t really know too much about the business, you can really get over on them in a lot of different ways so it’s a lot of people that don’t give artist the game because they’re trying to make the most money in the fastest way off their artists. They ain’t trying to be business partners with their artists. We bring that to the table.

How do you go about looking for artists?

It all starts with the music. I got homies that’s trying to be artists so we do certain things with the homies ‘cause that’s how we rock — from the ground up. I put my people in situations like if that work out, that work out but we out looking for superstars so it all start with the music. You gotta have the music and then you gotta have potential star power. Then you gotta represent something different that YG don’t represent because we all can’t be doing the exact same shit.

What do you hope your label represents?

It’s real family-oriented. We giving our people opportunities to be something. We not just pulling a regular homie that don’t know nothing about music or don’t got no potential to be successful in the music industry. We not bringing ’em along and giving them job titles like, ‘Here, bro, you gon’ run this.’ It’s certain people that’s been around since we came in the game. They been around from that time doing certain little things, watching how we move, watching how we do things and they learned so we bringing them along with us. We about the people so we’re trying to uplift one another ‘cause that’s really how you gon’ have some real shit. We trying to do it like we on some Roc-A-Fella shit.

Is that what it feels like?

That’s what it is. When you think of YG, you think of the West Coast, L.A. the lifestyle, that’s what the brand about. That’s what 4Hunnid represents.
