What really made you want to be a part of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in LA music series?
Tink: I wanted to be apart of this particular series because Red Bull Sound Select is so supportive and enthusiastic about me. For about twoyears now they've believed in me and my music. And every show is always better than the last. From the venue, to the lights, to the response after my set. The crowds are always full of new faces, which I love because it helps me reach different fan bases. LA has shown me a lot of love lately, their energy is crazy.

Are you looking forward to mixing and possibly working with some of the other artists (from outside genres) on the bill?
I'm always excited to work with different artists and sounds. I'm just a music lover and I get bored easily. Plus I take what I can from every genre. I want to learn more from different artists, techniques in the studio, topics I don't normally touch. I enjoy the challenge.

What really made you want to be a part of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in LA music series?
Thurz: Red Bull Sound Select is truly about breaking music, and all the artists on the roster bring something unique that the world needs to hear. Any artist who is passionate about their craft would jump at the opportunity to be on the bill with other incredible acts with a program that "gets it."

Are you looking forward to mixing and possibly working with some of the other artists (from outside genres) on the bill?
Absolutely. My music has no parameters, it's all designer, and I can't wait to create something that you haven't heard before with new artists from different genres. My Designer EP hints at experimentation and I'm just getting started.

What really made you want to be a part of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in LA music series?

What really made you want to be a part of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in LA music series?
Tree: I love Red Bull Sound Select, they have been a significant source of entertainment in music and the music scene in Chicago for awhile now. Given the opportunity appointed to myself to travel and do what I love (music) I think is phenomenal. I have the highest regard for the opportunity and Red Bull for the stage.

Are you looking forward to mixing and possibly working with some of the other artists (from outside genres) on the bill?
I'm always eager and willing to work with other artist from different genres, places and walks of life. I wouldn't mind doing one song (or four) while I'm in Cali.

A$AP Yams: Over the years we've had a great relationship with Red Bull, embracing our movement since day one and helping reach the audience we have now.

We're open to work with anybody as long as it's organic. Anybody that's going to help push envelope would get along with us just fine.

What really made you want to be a part of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in LA music series?
Saba: The people at Red Bull Sound Select have been involved in a lot of cool things that I always attend. Through a performance with Fakeshoredrive, we were able to develop a relationship and it's such a beautiful thing. Tto be apart of it only made sense. The second I got approached to be a part of the event I agreed. It's a great opportunity.

Are you looking forward to mixing and possibly working with some of the other artists (from outside genres) on the bill?
Of course, I'm already a fan of most of the artists on the bill anyway, friends with a few of them. It's always dope being around events like that and being able to network and make the most out of situations like that. Some of the best out there are participating this year, and the fact that I'm even considered for this is extremely humbling and all around tight. I've never been one to only stick to my "genre" anyway.

Run The Jewels: It's just a great opportunity to do a unique show with great people.

Ty Dolla $ign Releases New Album Feat. Nicki Minaj, Roddy Ricch, Kanye West And More

After a three-year album hiatus, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest studio effort, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday (Oct. 23).

The 25-track album features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, Roddy Ricch, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, 6lack, Young Thug, Music Soulchild, Skrillex, Quavo, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, Kanye West, and more.

Powered by previously released singles, “Ego Death,” Expensive” and By Yourself,” the new album flexes a different music muscle for the Grammy-nominated recording artists who steered clear of  making club records.

“I was intentionally trying to not make club songs [talking about] hoes and *itches and all the sh*t I used to talk about,” Ty told Vulture in a recent interview. “I was trying to, like, talk about my life, and what it is now, and really do something different with it. I got a daughter going to high school this year, and she’s paying attention, and all her friends are paying attention, so I can’t talk as crazy or do the crazy sh*t that I used to do.”

Jay Z Launches His Own Cannabis Brand

Jay Z is venturing into the world of cannabis. The  mogul officially announced the launch of his new cannabis brand, Monogram, on Friday (Oct. 23) marking his first product collaboration since becoming chief brand strategists of the Northern California-based dispensary, Caliva, last year.

“Monogram seeks to redefine what cannabis means to consumers today,” the company said in a press release. As many marijuana storefronts have implemented new rules amid the global pandemic, Monogram is also planing to launch an e-commerce sales option, “In an effort to provide a more tailored customer experience.”

Caliva and Hov opened their first Southern California storefront last year. Besides providing quality products, Hov aims to use his position at Caliva to help the formerly incarcerated (many of whom are not reaping the benefits of marijuana legalization) through advocacy, job training, and employee and workforce development.

According to the company website, Monogram uses “expert growers” to ensure that each marijuana flowers receives the “respect it deserves” in every stage of the growth process. Additionally, Monogram flowers are grown in small batches so that every plant gets “personalized attention.”
