Last Tuesday, three stunning women congregated to laugh and muse over monumental events in their careers as ASCAP Rhythm & Soul presented its 6th Annual "Women Behind the Music" Series. "The series, designed to encourage and recognize women in the music community, paid homage to three incredible trailblazers in each region." Concluding in Atlanta, GA, the honored guests included Debra Antney, Founder and CEO of Mizay Entertainment; KeKe Wyatt, powerhouse vocalist and label manager; and Omara Harris, ESQ., Entertainment Lawyer at her own boutique entertainment law firm.
A3C (All 3 Coasts) celebrated it's tenth year this past weekend. Hip-hop heads packed into Atlanta's distinct neighborhoods and notable music venues to witness live performances by featured and local artists including B.O.B., 2Chainz, Wocka Flocka Flame, Talib Kweli, Black Thought, Scarface, Young Dirty Bastard (the late Ol' Dirty Bastard's son), Twista, Jay Electronica and more. Not only were the stages swarming with talent, festival goers had access to network and absorb sound advice from some of the industry's most essential professionals.
Iggy Azalea is having an excellent summer. The top two slots of Billboard's Summer Songs
chart have been "Fancy" and a guest spot on Ariana Grande's "Problem." Two more are slowly but surely rising with "Black Widow" featuring Rita Ora and guest feature on mentor T.I.'s single "No Mediocre."
The crossover into film and television has already begun for Azalea as well. Vin Diesel recently revealed she is set to film a cameo in Fast and Furious 7 due in 2015. MTV.com named Azalea host of House of Style also. She seems to have the model for success as a white female rapper and growing clout on tour. She will headline Budweiser’s Made in America Festival in Los Angeles and the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas which will only bolster her promising future.
