The Elevation Conference in Boston, MA last month was amazing. It was a great place to network, build, grow, and be inspired as a person navigating artistry and ministry. The event featured panels, discussions, a block party, a concert, and a live music critique session. We were fortunate enough to have Matt Garaffolo take pictures all along the way. You can find his photography at @Mattedpictures on Instagram.

Chances are strong you’ve heard of Texas Native Tobe Nwigwe, or “Tobe from the SWAT” (South West Alief Texas) by now, but if you haven’t, you should. Starting from the ongoing #getTWISTEDsundays series and inclusion in the 2018 BET Cypher, Nwigwe has enjoyed a meteoric rise in a relatively short time, and for good reason. Nwigwe has been recognized by mainstream and CHH figures alike, to include Dave Chappelle, Erykah Badu, Black Thought, Lecrae, and more. His “Tobe from the SWAT” tour stopped at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland where DMX played just the night before. Flashing lights and smoke machines set the […]
On August 23, Andy Mineo released a musical-podcast hybrid called Work in Progress. The project is unlike any released by the artist before, compiling several unreleased tracks into a single release with a podcast series used to create additional conversation. Whereas Mineo’s earlier releases accounted for a single season, Work in Progress gives listeners a more complete display of Mineo’s artistic evolution. Whether it be the fear of aging, a celebration of marriage, or musical experimentation, the album is a thematic feast and might be Mineo’s most powerful project yet. Perhaps the most crucial element of Work in Progress is […]
NF recently sat down for a conversation with Ill Will at NME.com this week. Being someone who tends to be pretty vulnerable on the mic, NF found some space here in front of a camera to be real. Considering himself to be a quite negative person and preparing for the worst, NF says he finds it thrilling that he outsold Chance The Rapper’s debut album ‘The Big Day’ in the first week of sales with his new album The Search. Nate also shares how his perception changes the older he gets. He looks back on the song How Could You Leave Us […]
John Crist is bringing his brand of comedy with a Netflix special called ‘I Ain’t Praying for That’. The comic known for poking fun of and laughing with fellow Christians let this secret out on his latest comedy run, but now it’s official. “I personally couldn’t be more excited about ‘I Ain’t Prayin’ For That’ to come to Netflix. We’ve been on the road touring with that material and hundreds of thousands of people saw it live. Every night I’d get the same questions — ‘Where can I buy this DVD?,’ ‘When are you going to release this online’? — […]
