Check Out The Teaser For Danny Brown’s Documentary, “Live At The Majestic” (Trailer)

Going back to his fam, the good folks of Detroit. Watch Danny celebrate with good drank and good dank. And the crowd went wild! An Apple Music film. Looks dope.

Danny Brown “Live at the Majestic” is Andrew Cohn’s new concert documentary featuring the uniquely indie, Detroit rap star. The documentary takes you behind the scenes as the famed rapper prepares to take the stage at the Majestic Theatre in his very own hometown. Like any return to the place you grew up, the journey is filled with hilarious stories of youthful misdeeds, wrestling with a new and more honest assessment of home and a deeper understanding of yourself. What Cohn delivers is both an intimate and poignant conversation with Brown and a wholly entertaining rock doc featuring explosive concert footage.

Jimmy Iovine ‘Defies’ Industry Conventions And Speaks On How The Music Business And Technology Really Work (Video)

Did you catch “The Defiant Ones” debut last night? Interesting. If you have not, there will surely be an encore presentation before the next ep. But for now, you should check out this interesting clip of gems from the defiant Jimmy Iovine… talking about the music industry, the effects of technological innovation on it and more like a ‘g’ (as in guru, as in the wise man on the mountain who has seen it all and saw you coming).

Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener in the OTHERtone studio with Jimmy Iovine of Apple Music.

Artists should focus on their art! Make good music first, THEN worry about ‘getting paid’ on the road and selling gear and getting YouTube hits. Of course, the industry is not helping. The art is dying because the priorities are screwed up: (1) The industry is still holding to licensing/copyright mantras that still keep money from artists (the source of the art) and (2) the technology is providing promoters (the gatekeepers for artists getting money on the road) a new, albeit largely inaccurate measure of an the ‘value’ of what the artist is putting out. A YouTube sensation who makes music in two weeks is just demonstrating that they can get clicks, NOT that they make music as good or better than artists that spend months crafting their music (who is not getting all those clicks). On the whole, those who crank out tracks in two weeks from the road CANNOT be making better music than folks who take the time off tour and focus on turning out their best product… even if that’s what the YouTube views say. Iovine called that click count chicanery ‘fake news.’

BOOM! And this comes from Iovine, a guy who has made A LOT of money in music. Watch the short, powerful clip above with all three eyes open though. Now, remember that Iovine is with Apple Music; another music-meets-tech entity, where the streams are not ‘totally free.’ EVERYONE has an agenda, even Iovine.

Interesting that this is a YouTube clip though.

Interesting esoteric insights provided by practitioners who have floated along the edges, and into and throughout Hip-Hop music.

Flying Lotus and Pharrell Williams with real talk for Scott Vener. So how is Hip-Hop doing on the whole? Are the beats dominating while lyricism lacks? That’s what every generation of Hip-Hop, or music in general, says (e.g. it’s not as good as it once was) vs. real is real and this ain’t it… Several angles of commentary on the state of Hip-Hop covered.
