T.I. Is Curating A Pop-Up Trap Museum In Atlanta To Commemorate Genre's 15-Year Anniversary

You ready to pay the trap house a visit? 

Trap music has engulfed the hip hop world for more than a decade now; influencing a variety of artists  and sub-genres throughout the world like Latin music with acts like Bad Bunny. Now, T.I. is honoring the genre by curating a pop-up museum in West Atlanta to celebrate its 15 anniversary. Just 15 years ago, Tip released 2003's Trap Muzik via Atlantic Records.

When he created Trap Muzik, T.I. knew he wanted to make something that was going to influence many for years to come. "I wanted to make a classic. I knew I had to make timeless music, which could stand the test of time," he told Noisey. "It was about showing that even if you were participating in felonious activities, there were still other things you needed to deal with: you’re not just drug dealing but also dealing with a relationship with your parents, your girlfriend, having a child too young and being looked down on by society as one thing, when you’re actually much more than that definition," he added.

"You might have had a homeboy who just died, but he wasn’t even in the streets like that! Trap Muzik was kind of crystallizing this black experience into a piece of music," he continued.

The exhibit is also in partnership with veteran hip hop journalist Maurice Garland and creative artist DL Warfield, among others. In efforts to highlight the genre's influence throughout the years,  T.I. will feature a slew of memorable moments and artists who helped bring the genre at the forefront of pop culture. Such artists include the likes of  Future, 21 Savage, 2Chainz, Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, Young Jezzy, and more.

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.”
