Meet Hip-Hop’s New Rising Star: Danileigh

Danileigh isn’t new to the entertainment industry. Discovered by Prince at the age of 18, she went viral last year after sharing her version of Drake’s ‘In My Feelings’ challenge. The Dominican-American hip hop and R&B singer is also a dancer, creative director and songwriter who helped pen J.Lo and Cardi-B’s “Dinero” single.

The popularity of Danileigh’s breakout song ‘Lil Bebe’ stretched way past its initial release with remixes with rapper Lil Baby and most recently, Latin trap stars Rauw Alejandro and Nio Garcia who featured in the song’s Spanish version, Bebecito.

A fan of collaboration, she’s not afraid of recognizing real talent in her peers. Danileigh exudes the same energy talking about Gunna’s new album Drip or Drown 2 as she does talking about herself. “It’s fire. It’s a vibe” she says. “You could just press shuffle and every song is lit.”

She believes Millennials see artists’ visual art then decide if it’s worth a listen. “Boogie is crazy with his visuals” she says. “He’s definitely going to blow up.”

Kazakhstan embraces Latin script in break with past

Number 76 is one of several pilot schools in the city where a Latin alphabet consisting of 32 letters is being test driven for the country’s state language, Kazakh, which has been written in Cyrillic for nearly 80 years.

This “Love & Hip Hop” Star Is Calling Out Racism — And Colorism

It’s a scene all too common in the entertainment industry: A male producer tells a female musician she needs to change her appearance in order to be successful.

This time, when the interaction unfolded during the premiere of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” on Jan. 1, the female artist pushed back.

Dominican-American singer Amara La Negra walked out as her male castmate made racist comments — that her Afro wasn’t elegant, for example — and instantly put herself on the American pop culture map. She announced she signed with the record label BMG, and landed an appearance on the widely-syndicated hip-hop radio show The Breakfast Club.

During that interview, she again shot down ignorant comments from the hosts, who asked if she was imagining the colorism she says she’s always experienced in her community because she has dark skin.

“Being a Latina that looks like myself in the Latin industry is very hard,” Amara told VICE News. “And I never would have imagined that talking about it would open this worldwide conversation.”

Now, she’s getting ready to record her first album and take her shot at the American market — while promoting her underrepresented Afro-Latino culture along the way.

Watch her full VICE News interview above.

Why Retail Businesses Should Hire Humans, Not Robots

Scott Galloway, professor of marketing at NYU Stern School of Business and the author of “The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google” says that employing a huge fleet of robots does not always benefit a business’ bottom line. Human employees offer an advantage for retail businesses even during a time when tech companies are increasingly pushing robots as replacements. Following is a transcript of the video.

Scott Galloway: To give you a sense of just how powerful Amazon is, when Amazon opened one store, Amazon Go — whose key feature was that it used artificial intelligence to get rid of cashiers.

Effectively, you heard this giant scream across the US labor force where of the 11 million cashiers in the US — that’s more than primary teachers in terms of actual numbers — about 3 of those 11 million probably lost their job. They just don’t know it yet.

And in every retail boardroom, we’re talking about store optimization which is Latin for “fire people.” I believe however the opportunity in retail is to invest in not artificial intelligence but organic intelligence.

People no longer go to stores for products. So the winners in retail, The Home Deports, the Best Buys, the Sephoras are investing in their “Blue Shirts,” their “Golden Aprons,” and their “Cast.”

Because if you are going into a store, you want someone there. You want the most impressive supercomputer in the history of the world. And that is an individual who is well-trained.

So while tech is zigging, there’s an opportunity for retail to zag. Starbucks is the original gangster here, spending more money on benefits than they do on coffee.

When you go into a Starbucks you feel better about the experience because the person behind the counter, the barista, actually seems to be enjoying their job, or feel as if they are getting paid well and learning something.

London Elektricity – Pull The Plug (Full Album)

We are celebrating London Elektricity’s debut album “Pull The Plug” which was released exactly 18 years ago. 1999, A time where Chris Goss was still part of the London Elektricity artist collective with Tony Colman before stepping aside to focus on the establishment of Hospital Records and global events brand Hospitality. Drum & Bass artists are still not allowed to laugh on press shots however and Chris Goss probably still won’t pull off that turtle neck sweater.

Download / CD: https://www.hospitalrecords.com/shop/release/london-elektricity/nhs12-pull-the-plug

1. Song In The Key Of Knife
2. P.B.E. (vs Jon Forté) (Elektricial Storm)
3. Shakedown
4. Rewind
5. Superstructure
6. Do You Believe
7. Pull The Plug
8. Brother Ignoramus
9. Dirty Dozen

“Well here it is. After 18 months of blood, sweat and losing all our friends, we bring you our album. We made the CD and Vinyl as if we were making different albums – we tried hard to make sure the cd sounds good in your home, caravan or houseboat. Here you have the golden moments of Song In The Key Of Knife, PBE, Pull The Plug, Brother Ignoramus and Dirty Dozen. We also bring you four new tunes : we’ve been recording Rewind for over a year, and an early version somehow managed to chart in Japan last year.

This song was inspired by 4 Hero’s mix of “Blackgold Of The Sun”, and it features the amazing vocal talents of Lianne Caroll, a jazz-folk singer from Hastings, South England. The lyrics are about being addicted to the internet (don’t say you haven’t been warned). Lianne also tears it up on Do You Believe, which is our cover version and tribute to the Webster Lewis 23 minute original – seek it out now or you’ll regret it when you get old and go deaf. Superstructure and Shakedown both feature the breakbeat precision of Landslide on the Mac. We’re grooming Landslide for a life of champagne, fast cars and Latin flavoured breakbeat supremacy.” – London Elektricity in 1999.

We Spoke to the DJs Who Played During the Pulse Nightclub Attack

June 12, 2016, started like any other Saturday night at Pulse, the beating heart of Orlando’s LGBTQ community. It was Latin Night at the popular club. People were dancing, drinking, and having a good time. That was until about 2 a.m., when Omar Mateen stormed in and opened fire with an assault rifle, leaving 49 dead and another 53 injured. It was the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in U.S. history.

VICE News spoke with four survivors, who talked about what the past year has been like and how the tragedy has stayed with them: two DJs who were playing when the first shots rang out, a Latin nightclub promoter, and a clubgoer who lost his best friend in the attack. We met at the Oasis Community Outreach Center, an LGBTQ-affirming church catering to Orlando’s black and brown community that has provided a sanctuary and a source of emotional support for some of the survivors.
