10 Things You Should Know About Oliver Dollar

The artist known as Oliver $, is always one to roll with the punches when it comes to evolution- be it his moniker or sound. He doesn’t actually need a symbol clouding people’s ears or eyes, or blocking out what’s important: salacious house music. This is how the newly anointed, $-sign-free, Oliver Dollar keeps “Pushing On.”

The no-holds-barred talent, who is known for releasing danceable and creative EPs on labels such as Made to Play and Defected, has been in the studio recently, pushing the knobs for fresh remixes of Freaks’ “Wake Up” with Jimi Jules, Baukermat’s "One Day" and Jessie Ware’s “Tough Love” also with Jimi Jules. A single is in the works with hotly tipped talent Seven Davis JR and there has been mention that his artist album is also on the horizon line.

Oliver Dollar’s last number one Beatport hit with Jimi Jules, “Pushing On” will be re-released this summer (via Ministry Of Sound/ Sony worldwide on Aug 31) the producer recently told VIBE. What’s more, he’s heading off on tour across the US in this month and again in September, so before you snag your tickets, find out 10 facts about the man, from the man himself.

1. “I started out as Oliver S, S for my last name, Siebert. Then a friend said to me that I should change it to Oliver $ as it makes me stand out more, although sometimes I still hear people call me Oliver S!”

2. “I grew up in the North of Germany then moved to Berlin. I can’t imagine living anywhere different; Berlin is definitely the best place in the world to live I think.”

3. “My cousin is Jan Driver and he’s the one who got me started in all this, he was my early inspiration and taught me all the basics.”

4. “My favorite food is hamburgers; the best thing about touring is being able to try lots of them from different places.”

5. “I work best at night!”

6. “Because I can spend all night in the studio I’m not always the best morning person.

7. “My favorite place to play is Panorama Bar in Berlin.”

8. “My nickname is Ginger Ninja, the reason behind it is pretty obvious.”

9. “My first ever paid job was a paper round in my neighborhood when I was about 12, I remember having to do it in the pouring rain for such a small amount of money.”

10. “I like to collect postcards from the cities I visit!”

Incoming Attorney General Letitia James Planning Investigation Of Donald Trump And Co.

Incoming New York Attorney General Letitia James is planning a sweeping investigation of Donald Trump, his family and anyone associated with the president.

While speaking with NBC News, James said she will use every corner of the law to look at any illegal activity committed.

“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well," James said.

Specifically, James will investigate any illegal activity associated with the president's New York real-estate holdings, including the 2016 meeting with a Russian official at Trump Tower and any government subsidies he's received.

"We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” the Democratic attorney general said.

After James announced her forthcoming investigation, Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen will face the music for lying to Congress and violating campaign laws. Cohen faces four years in prison.

Petty is a registered sex offender in the state of New York and did a seven-year stint in prison for manslaughter. In conjunction with Petty, there has also been a discussion about Nicki's support of her brother Jelani Maraj, who was convicted in 2017 of child rape charges. In Palmer's report on the Queen artist's current beau, it seems like he's only reporting the news, Deadspin notes. The news site published a video of the actual report where Palmer discusses the matter with co-host Alicia Quarles.

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.
