Always looking to create unique experiences for his fans, RZA partnered with us to come up with a novel way to release Wu-Tang Clan’s 20th anniversary album, “A Better Tomorrow.” Forgoing the traditional model of music distribution, we decided to embed several songs from the album directly into a Boombot REX and release the unit before the general album release date.
Units will start shipping November 14th with “A Better Tomorrow Special Play” embedded onto it. The general release of the album will be at a later date. People who purchase this unit will be the first to hear Wu-Tang Clan’s latest installment. Additionally the song “Big Horn B” will only be available through a Boombot REX.
Only 1,000 units will be made available for sale on Boombotix.com. The other 2,000 units will be available through Zumiez.
The Boombot REX is still a functional Bluetooth speaker and can play music of your choosing.
“There’s something transcendent about being able to physically hold music,” says RZA. “Back in the day, holding a vinyl helped you appreciate just how much time and sweat goes into creating a single track, let alone an entire album. Over the last decade, we’ve lost that sensation. With this project, we hope to strengthen the bond between fan and artist. Boombotix puts the music back in your hands so you can stay connected to your favorite artists wherever you go.”
When Complex founder Marc Ecko received a call from an old friend in search of a conversation, he had no choice but to oblige. That old friend is Bad Boy Records founder and CEO Sean “Diddy” Combs, and the man behind Revolt, his first cable network, had plenty he wanted to talk about. In the first part of their conversation, Diddy talked about media in 2014 and the Revolt Music Conference, which is happening in Miami, Oct. 16—19. But that wasn’t all the legendary MC and businessman had on his mind.
In this second installment of their conversation, Diddy spoke with Ecko about building the base for his new Revolt empire, which he says he sees as the CNN or ESPN for music. He’s especially proud of how Revolt has been able to balance his roots in hip-hop/urban culture with branching out to genres like EDM, alternative, and indie. The chairman also shared his vision for the network, which he doesn’t see in terms of the old-fashioned TV metrics like “millions of homes,” but instead as a source of information that you take everywhere on all of your devices, from your watch on the train to your phone to, yes, the toilet seat.
Elijah Blake returns with the release of his latest EP titled Drift. This EP comes with 8 tracks with a guest feature from J Cole.
You would think an individual like Jermaine Dupri would have the key to Atlanta and free reign in the city to do whatever he wanted especially for his birthday.
The super producer who just turned 42 hosted an upscale birthday party in Atlanta and brought out everyone from Usher to Producer Bryan-Michael Cox. The turn up was short lived when police got involved in the party after members of Jagged Edge attire became an issue when they refused to remove their hats.
Jermaine took to instagram to vent to AG Entertainment about his disrespectful experience…..
So I got all dressed up,brought all my people out @howuseeit @roycerizzy @dondrianicole @ateam628 @bryan_m_cox @reallilscrappy and security at the GoldRoom told jagged edge they had to leave if they didn’t take they hats off,then they had the police come and put my peoples out and fucked up the whole night,as far as I’m concerned that’s the most disrespectful shit you can do @agentertainment to people that put on for the city
