LOS ANGELES, April 15, 2019 / — 6x Entertainment has released the new single and official music video for “Come Together” by the multi-talented entertainer, Tia P., which features the dynamic recording artist B. Slade.  “COME TOGETHER” is now available to download on all streaming platforms and the official music video can be seen on YouTube. With so much violence, racism, and corruption going on in our communities and the political climate state of the world around us in constant archaic disaccord, Tia P. and B. Slade are ready to take the world by storm with a positive message and soulful rendition of The Beatles’ classic hit, “Come Together”, but with a banging and interesting new twist. In addition to dropping the new single, “Come Together”, Tia P. will be featured in this season’s upcoming episodes of, “Next Big Thing”, which airs on the BET Network.

One cannot categorize Tia P. as just a singer or rapper, she’s an overall entertainer and quadruple threat adding acting, dancing, and percussionist skills to her talent repertoire. “Tia P. is a visionary.  She embodies greatness and musical excellence. She is gifted in her DNA with an authenticity, artistry and creativity that only musical legends are made of”, says C. Von Parchman, President & Founder of 6x Entertainment.  Marty Arnold, COO and Managing Partner of 6x Entertainment adds, “Tia P. is an electrifying performer, a remarkable songwriter, and eclectic rapper. We feel extremely confident that Tia P. will captivate audiences and leave music fans wanting more.”

What inspired you to create the single “Come Together?”

Well, the song is originally by The Beatles – epic in their own right. The remake concept actually sprung from KJLH radio personalities Tammi Mac and Don Amiche. “Mac & Amiche”, now “The Tammi Mac Show”, began playing the remixes I was reproducing and performing on YouTube from my “Minute Music Monday” series.  They threw out a Beatles iconic song “Come Together” as a challenge to see if I could pull it off as well as I’d done the others in my series. As soon as I heard what they proposed, I was excited and eager to take on the challenge for several reasons: A) I’m all about love, peace, and unity and this song is the embodiment of embracing differences but all being able to come together as one. I believe that message, decades later, in this day and time needs to be echoed to the younger generations and serve as a reminder to the older ones. B) It’s something I don’t think I would have ever suggested myself, nor is it a song people would expect from a young Black female “rapper” from Inglewood. I didn’t want to listen to any other remakes of “Come Together” because I didn’t want my version to sound like anything else that had been done. I needed to keep the integrity of the song. After listening to and researching the absurdity of the lyrics, I was sold on recreating this necessary audio masterpiece but giving it my own taste with an added rap towards the end. Once I brought B.Slade into the mix, it went to a whole nother level!

BSlade in Tia P’s “Come Together” Music Video

What was the experience like collaborating with BSlade?

It’s a trip! That’s big bro! Seriously, being able to work with someone you’ve looked up to and been inspired by for most of your life doesn’t happen for most. His energy is infectious and he’s king of being out the box, which is exactly what we needed for this video shoot. On top of that, he’s freaking hilarious; a maniac on stage or on camera, but humble and chill when off. This isn’t actually the first song we’ve collaborated on. We’ve worked on a few things, but our first cut together was a song he featured me on called “Black Lives Matter” for his project called the Black Belt.  “Come Together” is the first audio and visual collab we’ve done.

What is the message that you want listeners to take from this song?

It’s ok to be different. Please don’t be a conformist; it’s boring. However the power that we have when we come together (no pun intended), when we truly see one another beyond the differences, past the fear mongering and politics, we make change happen. Most of the lyrics sound like nonsense, much like the noise of the world today; but the one part that people around the world know is “Come Together”. Isn’t that what we still need to do?

In the months ahead, she will be performing at The Viper Room in Hollywood and at the 2019 Women in Entertainment Luncheon, which will be held at AEG’s Dignity Health Sports Park.

Nipsey Hussle’s death was felt deeply in Crenshaw, the neighborhood where he grew up and maintained a regular presence after becoming a Grammy-nominated artist. His fans said he offered hope, advocated self-improvement and financially invested in the community, which has long struggled with violent crime. He opened a co-working space dedicated to increasing diversity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and planned to meet Monday with police officials to discuss ways to prevent gang violence.

His debut studio album, “Victory Lap,” was nominated for best rap album at the Grammys last year and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart. He had two children, Kross and Emani.

Rapper 21 Savage’ Arrested by US Immigration Force

Atlanta rapper 21 Savage has been arrested as of Sunday by immigration officials who say he is illegally present in the United States.

The rapper, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, came to the US in July 2005 aged 12 and failed to leave when his visa expired a year later, officials said.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman said he is being held for removal proceedings.

A CNN reporter quoted an ICE spokesman as saying: “His whole public persona is false”.

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph is presently in ICE custody in Georgia and has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts,” ICE said in a statement. “ICE will now await the outcome of his case before a federal immigration judge to determine future actions.”
An attorney for Abraham-Joseph said his representatives were working to secure his release.
This is a developing story.

‘Love and Hip Hop’ Star Yandy Smith Maced While Protesting Jail Conditions in Brooklyn [VIDEO]

‘Love and Hip Hop’ star Yandy Smith got maced Sunday afternoon while protesting jail conditions.

The reality star was among the crowd protesting outside the Metropolitan Detention Center, a federal facility in Brooklyn, when the macing happened. Due to an electrical fire, the Metropolitan Detention Center has been without heat and electricity since January 28th.

via Madame Noire:

During the protest, which was broadcasted live on her Instagram account, she would correspond with the inmates by telling them to bang on their windows as she asked questions. When she asked if they had not received their blankets, the banging was heard loud and clear. When she asked if the heat had not been cut on, they banged, which let us know they were still freezing.

Smith, who was visibly emotional, was outraged at reports from the New York City Mayor’s Office that the inmates were sent blankets and hand-warmers while temperatures were below freezing. The inmates confirmed that they had not received anything. The MDC has been without heat and electricity for about a week, putting inmates are risk for serious health issues. The New York Times noted that inmates with sleep apnea cannot use their sleep machines because there is no electricity, putting them at risk for a stroke. Without electricity, the inmates can’t call their loved ones nor can they request refills for their medication. They also can’t use their toilets and there’s no hot water. Visiting hours have also been canceled. This jail houses over 1,600 men.

This matter hits close to home for Smith, whose husband Mendeecees Harris is currently incarcerated on drug related charges. Smith was also hurt during the protest according to a video that was posted by her close friend.

Nicki Minaj Drops a Shade-Filled Remix to Drake and Meek Mill’s ‘Going Bad’ on Queen Radio

Nicki Minaj returned to Queen Radio on Saturday afternoon and dropped a couple of remixes.

Then, she dropped a fiery remix to Drake and Meek Mill’s “Going Bad,” this time taking some shots.

“When you lose the queen, niggas friendly, dawg. It was just ‘back to back’ like Wembley, dawg,” Nicki raps. The line is obviously a reference to Drake & Meek ending their beef years after Drake’s “Back to Back” diss track.

She took a few more jabs in the song which you can listen to below.
