Swizz Beatz Recruits Pusha T, DMX, And More For New Art And Concert Series

Swizz Beatz is putting on an art and concert series for Miami Beach in celebration of veteran and emrging artists. 

Swizz Beatz recently announced that he will be hosting a three-day art and concert series at Art Basel Miami Beach beginning on Dec. 3. The event, which is formally called Casa Bacardi at Wynwood, will enlist the help of a couple of big names in the game, including Pusha T, DMX, and Alicia Keys.

The series will be in collaboration, with Swizz's The Dean Collection and Bacardi, and is celebrating art as an innovative craft and recognizing artists that have created timeless and iconic pieces of this generation. Dubbed as the 'no commission art fair,' artists will have the chance to showcase their works to a large and open-minded audience. The artists featured, including  KAWS, BK The Artist, and Swoon are all recognized as geniuses in their own right, who have challenged the industry standards. At the closing of the event, the artists will split up the events profits, to which they can each take a portion home.

In addition to the art aspect of the series, visitors will also be able to enjoy a concert put on by Swizz Beatz, Alicia Keys, DMX, and Pusha T. Luckily for series-goers the concert will go down house party style spotlighting these A-list artists as well as emerging performers every night following the close of the art fair.

Chris Brown Confirms Summer Tour With Nicki Minaj

Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj are hitting the road. The duo will team up for an upcoming U.S. tour set to kick off this summer, Brown confirmed via social media Friday (April 19) after Variety reported that the tour would begin in the fall.

A potential Sept. 13 concert at New Jersey’s Prudential Center was added to the venue's website and later deleted. The site listed Brown as the marquee act, while Minaj was a featured performer.

Besides going on tour together, Minaj makes an appearance on Brown’s newly released single “Wobble Up,” which also features G-Eazy. The track is the latest music collaboration from Brown and Minaj who have worked together a few times over the years.

News of the joint tour comes a day after it was reported that Minaj parted ways with her longtime management team. The “Gonja Burns” rapper was originally billed to hit the road with Future for the North American leg of her Queen tour but the jaunt was cancelled due to scheduling conflicts. The Queens native recently finished up her European tour with Juice WRLD as her special guest.

Last Sunday, Minaj took the stage as a surprise guest for week one of Ariana Grande’s headlining set at the 2019 Coachella Valley Music Festival. It’s unclear if she will hit the stage when Grande returns to perform for week two of Coachella on April 21.

Report: Ariana Grande Got Paid Twice As Much As Beyoncé For Coachella

Update: 12:42 pm ET (April 19, 2019) - There are conflicting reports regarding the earnings that Beyonce obtained for her Coachella performance. According to The Blast's sources, the singer received approximately the same amount as Ariana Grande.

This story is developing.

Original story below...

As fans continue to marvel at Beyonce's historical Coachella performance in the Netflix documentary, Homecoming, a new report about the pay discrepancy amongst the festival's headliners is also grabbing people's attention. According to Variety, Ariana Grande got paid double of what Bey earned for her performance.

Grande reportedly made $8 million from the festival, while Beyoncé only took home an estimated $3 to $4 million.

This certainly seems a little odd to fans due to a handful of reasons. For one, Beyoncé is a much more seasoned artist. Additionally, her headlining show, also known as BeyChella, was a historical moment that drew millions of viewers.

Grande also made history this year as the youngest artist to ever headline the three-day event, but the U.S. pay gap may have more to do with the huge difference between their paychecks. Black women make approximately 65 cents to every dollar earned by their white male counterparts. By contrast, white women earn 83 cents to every dollar earned by white men, according to the Pew Research Center.

Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, And More Join Lil Dicky's Animated "Earth" Music Video

Lil Dicky enlisted a wide range of A-list celebrities for his animated video 'Earth,' which aims to celebrate our home just time for Earth Day (April 22).

Rappers Snoop Dogg, Lil Yachty, Tory Lanez and Wiz Khalifa as well as John Legend, Kevin Hart, Lil Jon, Miguel and Bad Bunny voice different wild animals in the seven-minute visual, which dropped on Friday (April 19). Other voices include Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Leonardo DiCaprio, among several others.

The track was originally supposed to be about animals, however Lil Dicky realized he wanted to use the track to raise awareness about climate change and environmentalism.

"As I started thinking about my song, I thought, 'It’s probably a good thing that all the profits that come from this song go to charities involved in saving the environment,'" he explained to Rolling Stone. "It was always in my head that this was going to be something that helped raise money for environmental issues, but I didn’t really know the facts. I looked into it and was blown away."

Dicky says that he was working on the song for about two-and-a-half years before it was released. It's quintessential Lil Dicky, but it's also informative.
