Casio, Little Kids Rock And Disney/Own Star Roshon Fegan Deliver Musical Surprise To Hundreds Of Middle School Students

Published

on

Casio America, Inc. teamed up with national non-profit Little Kids Rock and Disney/Own star Roshon Fegan to surprise over 500 students from Magnolia Science Academy 8-Bell in Los Angeles for Music In Our Schools Month on March 14, 2018. Billed as a “routine” school assembly, the unsuspecting students got the thrill of a lifetime when “Shake It Up”, “Camp Rock” and “Greenleaf” star Roshon Fegan snuck on stage to give a live performance and gift enough Casio CT-X700 Series keyboards to give all of the school’s 170 “Modern Band” music program students access to an instrument.

“Giving back to the next generation of musicians is so important to Casio,” said Stephen Schmidt, Vice President of Casio’s Electronic Musical Instrument Division. “Partnering with organizations like Little Kids Rock and performers like Roshon, who is a featured Casio artist, ensures that we are collectively helping to impact local communities in a positive way through music. This donation is just one way to thank young impressionable students and help them to grow into artists that continue to believe in making music and will one day hopefully give back to the next generation of musicians.”

Countless studies show that kids who have access to music education in schools do better academically and socially. Little Kids Rock developed the nationally renowned Modern Band programs that reach over 650,000 students across the country and that teach kids to play culturally relevant music they already know and love, like pop, hip-hop, country, rock and R & B. Kids become proficient while playing the music that inspires them, and participation in Modern Band increases their engagement with school, learning and inclusion, while fostering critical 21st century skills like teamwork, creativity and communication.

“Little Kids Rock is grateful to receive Casio’s continued support and commitment to empowering young music makers in Los Angeles and across the country,” says Little Kids Rock CEO and Founder David Wish. “By supporting the Modern Band program at Magnolia Science Academy 8-Bell and donating these state-of-the art instruments, they are ensuring that these students will have access to a first-rate and entirely new type of music program in their community.”

The CT-X series of keyboards features advanced specifications for serious beginners to seasoned performers and players. All models feature the new AiX Sound Source which leverages expertise that Casio accumulated in developing sound sources for its digital pianos. The AiX Sound Source allows the CT-X keyboards to faithfully reproduce the appealing sound of acoustic instruments such as guitars, drums, basses, brass, wind instruments, string ensembles and more. The CT-X series provides high-performance Digital Signal Processor (DSP) effects that combine various algorithms to realize the perfect effect for each instrument sound. The CT-X700’s stunning instrument tones are perfect for beginners or advanced players that need an affordable and portable instrument.

Boosie Badazz Sprinter Van Shot Up In Dallas

Recently a shooting took place in the parking lot of Bit T’s in Dallas Texas where Boosie Badazz’s sprinter van was reportedly located. Different accounts are coming to different conclusions – some are saying Boosie’s van was the specific target of the attack, while others swear that he was just in the area. When you want friends and foes alike to know you’re in the area, upgrade your shine with a fresh iced out piece from HipHopBling.com, the premier provider of high end hip hop jewelry online.

Thusfar there hasn’t been a confirmation one way or another from Boosie’s Team – No Jumper and Dirty Glove Bastard have claimed that Boosie was struck in the leg, however Boosie shared a commemoration of his birthday on Instagram, without any mention of the shooting.

It is actually Boosie’s birthday as well. Boosie was in Dallas for both his 38th birthday, and a candle lit vigil for his friend and collaborator MO3, whom was recently shot and killed. There’s currently an ongoing investigation, but not much has yet been found.

Lil Uzi Vert And Lil Xan Will Not Be Working With Each Other Anytime Soon

Published

By

This year has been a busy year for Vert, whom this year alone dropped two projects: Eternal Atake and Lil Uzi Vert Vs. The World Pt. 2. Most people consider the latter a Plat version of EA, but Vert wasn’t stopped there. He hooked up with Future in the studio for Pluto x Baby Pluto, and it truly looks like all his hard work is paying off for him in a big way. If you’re looking for fresh new jewelry that will show up in a big way, head over to HipHopBling.com for your own custom jewelry

While fans have been eating his projects up, they’ve also been vocal about wanting him to return to his old sound. Lil Uzi Vert may be doing just that though – hitting up Twitter, Vert mentioned that he thinks it’s just about time to return to his mumbling ways. Lil Xan saw this and shot his shot, and mentioned that he’d be down to mumble alongside him. 

Lil Uzi Vert let him down in possibly the kindest way possible – “I mumble alone,” he said, with a heartbreak emoji. 

Some fans who saw the exchange were absolutely furious, convinced that Vert had just dissed their boy Xan. The exchange was quickly taken down from Twitter, but not before they had a chance to screenshot the entire thread. 

While it’s clear that we’re not going to see any Xan and Vert collab anytime soon, at least we can look forward to a return to form for Lil Uzi Vert.

Future, 2 Chainz And Lil Uzi Vert Run “Fire Emoji” Playlist

Published

By

Sooner than later publications will begin to reveal their “Best Of’s” as 2020 draws to a close. This year has been tumulus, however many would argue that this year has forced artists to become more creative than ever before. This week alone has seen several high profile drops and it makes sense to add them to this week’s Fire Emoji playlist. If you’re looking for some fire jewelry, customize your own merch for this holiday season by heading over to HipHopBling.com

Both Future and Lil Uzi Vert have been hinting at a project together for a hot minute – this month they finally delivered the fire with Pluto x Baby Pluto. With 2 Chainz So Help Me God having just dropped, we’re finally able to listen to some of those bars – including “Feel A Way” with Kanye West and Brent Faiyaz. 

With the prison drop of Kodak Black’s Bill Israel and the anticipated Rich the Kid and YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s collaboration, “Automatic” had to be added to the list. Peep it below for yourself and tell us what you think.
