Legendary DJ Mr. Magic Passes Away

John Rivas, widely known as the legendary Mr. Magic, has passed away yesterday morning from a fatal heart attack. The news of his passing spread nationally, as well as through Twitter, as it was first conformed by DJ Premier.

Given as an open letter to, DJ Premier stated, "I WANT TO SEND OUT THE UTMOST RESPECT AND CONDOLENCES TO THE MEMORY OF JOHN RIVAS---aka MR. MAGIC. HE PASSED AWAY THIS MORNING OF A HEART ATTACK....." Premier went on to state how Mr. Magic paved the way for DJs and hip-hop as Magic created the first rap show on commercial radio, "Rap Attack", with Marley Marl, on New York's WBLS radio station. 

Mr. Magic was well respected by listeners and rappers, as well, as Magic's name can be heard on many classic hip-hop songs by the Notorious B.I.G. ("Juicy"), 2Pac ("Old School"), and Nas ("Halftime"). One of rap group Whodini's greatest hits, "Magic's Wand," is an early homage to the DJ.

From the early to late 1980's, Mr. Magic released over five volumes of compilations of many well-known rappers on "Mr. Magic's Rap Attack" (Profile Records). While he may have taken a break from the rap spotlight, in 2002, Mr. Magic hosted the fictional Wildstyle Pirate Radio on high-selling Rockstar video game "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City." extends our prayers and deepest sympathy to the family, friends, and those deeply affected by the permanent magic he left on hip-hop. Rest in Peace, Mr. Magic.

The Truth Is Inside You
Chamillionaire Set to Release "Venom" on December 8th



Thousands spoke up for the album’s original title after Chamillionaire went out to fans for suggestions via his highly trafficked site .

(Houston, TX – Friday, October 1, 2009) – Few artists have embraced the monster that is the internet and its abundance of social networking tools quite as comprehensively as Platinum, Grammy-winning rap artist, Chamillionaire; using it to engage with fans for everything from Twitter takeovers to live broadcasts from his own highly trafficked site, Last week saw him go out to his legions of fans visiting the site daily and asking for their input in renaming his upcoming Chamillitary/Universal Republic third album release, which had originally been titled “Venom”; a name Chamillionaire felt he should change as the growth and direction of the album’s intended tracks, to him, no longer fit the moniker. Thousands submitted title suggestions and after narrowing it down, Chamillionaire put his top ten picks up for a vote on his site. To his surprise, his original album title “Venom” won by an overwhelming margin and, a man of his word, the newly-entitled, highly anticipated “Venom” is set to hit stores nationwide December 8, 2009.

“I wanna show all of my haters love. This song’s for you…,” Chamillionaire sings melodically on the intro to Venom’s lead single, “Good Morning”. Produced by DJ Frank E., with a track inspired by Tom Petty’s 1989 smash, “Free Fallin’ “, this ode to killing your naysayers with kindness feels as comfortable as an old friend and fits seamlessly into any Top 40 radio playlist. In fact, the single has already found a home on many Top 40 stations since being serviced earlier this month.

As far as other possible singles or artist features on “Venom” go, Chamillionaire is keeping that information pretty close to the vest, saying cryptically on his site’s blog, ”Venom stands for ‘visually entertaining negatives of money’. I plan to shoot visuals to accompany the leakage of multiple records. I won’t be talking too much about features and producers. Well, at least I will try not to. The visuals should do the talking.”

Plans for the first of these visuals, the music video for “Good Morning” are already in the works with a shoot expected in Los Angeles in the next couple of weeks.

About Chamillionaire

Hailed around the world for his major label platinum-plus debut smash album, The Sound of Revenge, the disc became one of the most influential hip-hop records in 2006, with the versatile Chamillionaire emerging as a mainstream multi-platform entrepreneur. The single and video for “Ridin’ featuring Krayzie Bone” became the most requested hip-hop anthem, soaring to the top of the urban, hip-hop and mainstream radio charts, almost single-handedly transforming the digital landscape.  Chamillionaire was crowned the biggest selling Ringtone artist ever, with over 5 million ringtone sales, and was certified by the RIAA as the first multi-platinum Mastertone artist in history. His Myspace site has exceeded 15 million profile views, earning him over 4 million in digital sales, outselling established stars such as Nelly and T.I. In keeping with the outpouring of recognition, the charismatic performer beat out proven superstars 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and others for Best Rap Video of the Year honors for the groundbreaking “Ridin’” video, featuring Krayzie Bone, at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.   In addition, the Houston rapper won “Rookie of the Year” and the prestigious “Alltell Wireless People’s Champ Award” (viewer’s choice) at the first ever BET Hip Hop Awards, as well as a nod at the American Music Awards for Favorite New Breakthrough Artist.  In February 2007, Chamillionaire received his first Grammy Award win in the Best R&B Performance By Duo Or Group category for “Ridin’.” In 2007, Chamillionaire released his sophomore effort, Ultimate Victory which debuted in the Top 10 of the Top 200 Sales Chart and was critically acclaimed as one of the best hip hop albums of the year.

B.G. Announces New Album - Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood




(New York, NY) — Former Hot Boy and “Living Legend” B.G. is back to take the streets as he unleashes   his new, long-awaited album, Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood, slated for release by E1 Music/Chopper City Records/Atlantic Records on November 24th.

B.G. wrote and recorded over 80 songs for the new album and narrowed them down over time to include only the best of the best!  Over 3 years in the making, Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood features B.G.’s classic shoot ‘em up, bang bang flow that fans have come to know and love.  With over 3.3 million albums sold as a solo artist, and 2.1 albums sold as a member of The Hot Boyz, B.G. has created another classic with Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood.

The first single, “Back to The Money,” with production by Oddz n Endz, explains B.G.’s return to the rap game and why he’s been away for so long.  “Back To The Money” will be followed by the second single, “My Hood” featuring Mannie Fresh.  “My Hood” is a true testament to the progression B.G. has made with his music.  With the creative Mannie Fresh sounds and B.G.’s hard verses and classic flow, the track proves Gizzle is right on target.

B.G. a/k/a B. Gizzle is a true hood superstar.  As a grimy N’Awlins HOT BOY and the true originator of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary term “bling-bling,” B.G. has overcome incredible personal and professional strife while consistently putting out bangers year after year.  Now with 14 years under his belt (and only 29 years old), B.G.’s new album Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood is “Baby Gangsta’s” 11th solo album to date and his long-awaited, often delayed follow-up to The Heart of Tha Streetz, Vol. 2.

“Sometimes I am denied my props but it’s cool,” says B.G.  “I am coming back and taking everything the game owes me.  It doesn’t owe me anything but respect.  I’m still the hottest of the hot.  At the end of the day, I just want the respect I truly deserve.”

Alan Grunblatt, President of E1 Music adds, “B.G. is the artist that put E1 Music (KOCH Records) on the map.  He is an original Hot Boy and we are so excited to have him back.”

Atlantic Records Group Chairman & CEO Craig Kallman noted, “B.G. is an iconic artist who has been a force on the hip-hop scene for more than 15 years.  His rare longevity is a testament to B.G.’s enormous talent, charisma, and influence.  We’re very happy to be partnering with Chopper City and E1 for the release of his much-anticipated new album.”

B.G.’s Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood includes killer production from Scott Storch, KLC, Cool & Dre, Oddz n’ Endz, Justice League, Salvage, and more.  Special guest features include Lil Wayne, T.I., Juvenile, Trey Songz, Yo Gotti, Young Jeezy, Lil Boosie, and many more!

While signed to Ca$h Money, B.G. released a string of albums, including True Story (1993), Chopper City (1997), and 1997’s It’s All On U (Volumes 1 and 2).  He further bolstered his status by becoming a member of the now legendary Hot Boys (Juvenile, Lil Wayne, and Young Turk).  B.G.’s Chopper City in the Ghetto (released in April 1999), debuted at Number 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. But what really put him on the map was the album’s anthem, “Bling Bling,” which catapulted B.G. to superstardom. He became a part of history when the term “bling-bling,” used to describe diamonds, was added into The Oxford English Dictionary, a testament to hip-hop’s effect on modern and pop culture.
