Music | Rick Ross Drops “Port of Miami II Freestyle”

The follow-up to 2006’s Port of Miami has been the subject of speculation for years, but Rick Ross just dropped off what might be our first taste of the upcoming album. Aptly titled “Port of Miami II Freestyle,” the Florida native released the new cut on SoundCloud. Packed with tight rhymes and his distinctly hoarse delivery, The Boss proves that he only gets better with age.

The unreleased album has had a long history, with Ross initially announcing the album in March 2017 as Port of Miami 2: Born to Kill. A teaser with DJ Khaled was released a year later, and the Maybach Music founder gave an update to fans in August 2018 as part of its predecessor’s 12th anniversary. In a now-deleted Instagram post, he mentioned that he was just “putting final touches” on the album and that, once again, the follow-up LP is coming soon.

Tunes Tuesday | Usher & Zaytoven – “A” [@usher] [@zaytovenbeatz]

A (stylized as “A”) is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter Usher, released in collaboration with American record producer Zaytoven, who also produced the album. … The album is an homage to the city of Atlanta, where Usher and Zaytoven grew up. A features guest appearances from Future and Gunna.

Bannerz Words….

I grabbed this album as soon as I saw it on Apple Music. Usher is still undoubtably the truth when it comes to R&B, and teaming up with Zaytoven I was expecting something special, and this album did not disappoint…apart from it only being 8 tracks in length. Is this worth a listen? YES if you are a true R&B fan, and not a fan of mumble R&B that many artists seem to produce.

The stand out track for me is Birthday, Usher delivers a “ATL In The Strip Club” banger, I can hear this being rinsed in sets, and if its not, well, I sure will. My second certified banger on this album is “She Ain’t Tell Ya”, this sounds like classic Usher, explaining to a female friend of a female he obviously was doing something with, this track will have you wanting to sway with a large drink in your right hand, and left hand on her waist, remember i told you about this one!!

All in all, this project gets a solid 10 out of 10 from me, and I’m looking forward to more music from the great one Usher.

Tunes Tuesday | [@smerkerofficial] Stars in the Wraith remix [Video]

After a short break, I am back with my Tunes Tuesday feature, i know this upload is on a Thursday, I forgot to set up the post schedule.

Smerker and his manager Magic, brought me in as his PA DJ for his Butterfly Effect Festival performance in July, which in simple terms, was a shut down over all other performances in the mixtape madness tent on the day, FACTS.

Smerker was toying with the idea of remixing his hit banger Stars in the Wraith, but didn’t want it to be the same cliche MC’s doing this, so he sought out 3 of the current U.K. realist rhymers, Pak-Man, Deep Green, and my favourite J Spades. Shout to Dukus on the beats as always.

Have a watch of the video, and then watch it again, because its a certified banger! Look our for Smerker’s next track dropping soon, we got work to do.

News | Netflix will have to make more European content by law

Streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video will likely soon have to ensure at least 30 percent of their libraries are dedicated to local content in the European Union. A preliminary agreement on the rules is already in place, and Roberto Viola, who oversees the European Commission department in charge of networks, content and technology, said the quota is set to become law in December. He indicated to Variety that the vote is “a mere formality.”

The streaming companies will have to commission European-made shows and movies, buy them or contribute to national film funds. The services will also likely have to make sure the local content has prominent placement in their libraries.

Once the measures are enshrined in law, EU countries will have 20 months to apply them, and Viola noted that member states can opt to increase their individual quotas to 40 percent of local material. The nations can also determine if they want to mandate production of a minimum number of shows and movies in their own countries, and whether they will apply a surcharge on subscription fees to pay into national film funds, like Netflix has to do in Germany.

Netflix is already close to meeting the EU’s 30 percent quota, Viola said; the EU will publish data next month highlighting how much European content each streaming service currently offers. Meanwhile, the EU is also working on rules to require streaming companies and platforms like YouTube(where users upload most content) to pay higher copyright fees to writers and directors.

Streaming services have made investments in some other local markets. Netflix, for instance, is spending $400 million on Canadian content over five years.

Interview | What Jammer Said to DJ Argue [@jammerbbk]

DJ Argue interviews grime legend Jammer. I’ve now had the time to watch the interview in full, and I have to agree with what Jammer says through out. DJ’s, Rappers and all type of entertainers, in the current time don’t put in the foot work on new music, and the rise of social media has watered down the work rate that many fore fathers put in for tracks to blow. Have a watch, and make the opinion for yourself.

Music Video | Drake – God’s Plan

6 God aka Drake, just dropped the visuals for his latest single “God’s Plan”. Have a watch, at how Drake helps out many people in this video, by giving away the video budget, instead of making a CGI filled video as I’m sure he was suppose to. Good on you Drake, other artists could learn something from this.
