Covering thousands of miles traveling to 14 cities in 14 consecutive nights, the 1414 Tour, created by Crown Royal Black and Jermaine Dupri, took Dupri's Global 14 social network to the fans and gave a real life example of how to live "The Crown Life." Cameras went behind the scenes, resulting in two short films that document the tour. Kicking off in Chicago and wrapping up in Miami, the tour wound through 19 states, bringing "The Crown Life" and Global 14 to the people.

On March 6th, Pep Love will release his long-awaited sophomore solo album, Rigmarole. The album, being released through the Hiero Imperium label that Pep was instrumental in co-founding, is Pep's first official album in 11 years, and is a deeply personal project, one that often deals with the trying times Pep went through as he figured out where music and life were taking him.

Pep's latest single and video, "Hip-Hop, My Friend," plays directly to that sentiment. Featuring a funky guitar riff throughout, along with scattered, triumphant horns and soulful crooning vocals, "Hip Hop, My Friend" is the perfect backdrop for Pep Love's intricate tale of his long lasting companionship with the music he views as confidant. And while Pep certainly isn't the first rapper to write an open letter to hip-hop, he keeps it refreshing by focusing on the positives that hip-hop music and culture have provided him over the years, and particularly in trying times.

Pep Love's new album, Rigmarole, will be released March 6th via Hiero Imperium.

MANHATTAN LIVE MUSIC LANDMARK S.O.B.’s TO CELEBRATE   30TH ANNIVERSARY WITH CELEBRATION CONCERT AT SXSW   PARTNERED WITH NOIZY CRICKET!! & INTERNATIONAL CREATIVE MANAGEMENT TO PRESENT ALL STAR LINE-UP

 
New York ~ 2012 marks Manhattan live music landmark S.O.B.s' (Sounds of Brazil) thirtieth year in existence and to celebrate, they have partnered up with their talent booking and marketing team, Noizy Cricket!!, and world-renowned International Creative Management (ICM) as well as OGPR Marketing & Public Relations to provide an all star anniversary concert at this year's SXSW, on Wednesday, March 14th. The show is to be held at 6th Street's Malaia World Lounge.
 
The performance line-up, meant to showcase S.O.B's commitment to musical diversity, includes acts like Miguel, Machine Gun Kelly, and 2 Chainz, as well as rap supergroup Slaughterhouse [Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9, Crooked I], Elle Varner, Nikki Jean, Maya Azuceña, Airplane Boys & Hoodie Allen. Opening honors will be performed by warm-up alumn, Anthm. AllHipHop, who have supported S.O.B.'s with on-the-scene media coverage for the past decade, is the event's media partner. YouHeardThatNew's infamous founder, Low Key, will host the evening with 2DopeBoyz's DJ Meka providing the musical backdrop in-between sets.
 
Founded in June of 1982 by owner and director, Larry Gold, on what was then a barren stretch of land at the corners of Varick and Houston Streets, to expose the musical heritage of the Afro-Latino Diaspora, S.O.B.'s has gone on to become renowned as the premier venue for not only World Music, but all genres, in New York City and the world over. The list of music legends to have graced the stage in the past thirty years is too extensive to list but the venue's contributions to connecting music to fans doesn't stop there. S.O.B.'s has also developed a reputation in the industry as a breeding ground for up-and-coming artists and trends. A show at S.O.B.'s can be a springboard for emerging artists, garnering them press from mainstream local, national and even international media as well as attracting attention from music industry professionals. This has been the case with uncounted artists including John Legend, Erykah Badu, Kanye West, Common, Drake and Ryan Leslie. In fact, the venue spawned the long-standing Breeding Ground feature on AllHipHop, on which the site has highlighted its picks from the crop of Hip Hop hopefuls over the years.
 
The partnership between S.O.B.'s and International Creative Management to present the venue's thirtieth anniversary made perfect sense as the two, working closely with Noizy Cricket!!, have collaborated for many years to provide amazing live entertainment to New York audiences.
 
“We could have provided an entire month's worth of concerts with all of the talent that has stepped on to the S.O.B's stage over the past thirty years.” shares Noizy Cricket!! founder, Le'Roy Benros. “We've gathered some of the freshest talent out today who've put on legendary performances here in New York and brought them to SXSW for a night to remember!"
 
“After 30 years of building S.O.B's into one of the elite music venues in NYC we are honored to finally be showcasing some of the best of Urban Music at SXSW.” adds owner, Larry Gold.
 
“We have been working with Larry and the S.O.B.'s family for many years and this will be a great way to celebrate their 30th anniversary,” says ICM Agent, Zach Iser. “Our clients are proud to be a part of this special evening of live music.”
