Young Thug And Kevin Liles Are Giving A HBCU Marching Band A Chance To Win $25,000

Atlanta's Young Thug and 300 Entertainment CEO Kevin Liles are getting into the HBCU spirit by giving a band a chance to win $25,000.

Thugga and Liles announced the "Hot" Battle of The Bands Challenge" by calling on HBCU marching bands to create a brief TikTok video performance them performing Young Thug's record, "Hot."

"I come from an HBCU, I started out at the school of engineering at Morgan State University and there would be no me without my experience at MSU,”Liles said via press release. “Homecomings and the power of their marching bands have always been at the core of an HBCU’s school spirit.”

“Our commitment from Young Thug and 300 is to support those very creatives who give their all and inspire us to build upon the HBCU communities,"Liles continues. "On behalf of Young Thug and I, we will always commit to putting the arts at the front of our philanthropic efforts."

To enter, participating bands must post the video to their school’s TikTok account using #HotBOTBChallenge, #HBCUBattleofTheBands, #HBCUHotChallenge, and #EverythingLitty by December 1. Bands can also share the clip with those hashtags on other social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. The HBCU with the highest engagement on their video will receive a $25,000 donation to the institution’s music department/band program.

The #HotBOTBChallenge contest comes after Thugger  performed “Hot” alongside Gunna, Wheezy and Temple University's Diamond Marching Band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Speaking of hip-hop and college, Queen Latifah received an honorary doctorate from Rutgers University earlier this year. Nas' Nasir Jones Hip Hop Fellowship at Harvard has continued to thrive since it's inception in 2013. And producer 9th Wonder continues to teach classes at Duke University.

Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" Makes Diamond History

It's coming up on a year since Lil Nas X took over the music industry with his debut single "Old Town Road." Before it reaches that milestone, the Georgia native's popular hit, featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, has reached a feat that solidifies its place in history. The YoungKio-produced track was certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the first to do so this year.

The organization also crowned the melody as music history's fastest song to attain diamond status. This feat is coupled with the single's chart-breaking run at 19 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100. When the song reached a peak, chatter about which genre it should reside in was heavily debated. The majority claimed it to be a country record while others vehemently vocalized that it's a hip-hop tune.

"When I uploaded the song and I labeled it country I knew the song was country-trap, but I feel like if I had to choose — which I had to — I thought it would lean more on the country side," he said in an NPR interview. "So I labeled it as country. And this is during the time I'm not expecting my song to actually hop up on charts. So, it wasn't intentional. I'm not expecting to have the No. 1 spot on the country charts, but it happened."

It looks like Lil Nas X will have to keep his promise of purchasing season three of Phineas and Ferb for each of his social media followers.

Suge Knight Reportedly Signed Over His Life Rights To Ray J

Suge Knight may be locked behind the G-Wall, but the former hip-hop mogul is attempting to keep the cash flow flowing.

Monday (Oct. 21), TMZ reported that Suge Knight has signed over his life rights to Ray J, with the hopes that the reality television star will create some lucrative deals for the Death Row CEO.

According to the report, a Suge Knight and Death Row Records documentary is in the works, as well as a Tupac album. There are even talks of reviving Death Row Records.

The former CEO was sentenced to 28 years in prison last October after pleading no contest to a charge of voluntary manslaughter for a January of 2015 incident in which he struck and killed 55-year-old Terry Carter and injured Cle "Bones" Sloan in a hit-and-run.

Ray J recently inked a $1 million deal in the cannabis industry and has major investments in the headphones and scooter industries as well.
