Tommy Lee Sparta’s new EP New Creator has debut at No. 9 on the Billboard Reggae chart.
The EP was released on January 5th under Ricardo Gowe Records and has been doing well on iTunes. While that is an impressive achievement for the Guzu Musiq deejay, the sales figures paint a different picture. The project sold only 63 copies in its first week of release. Tommy Lee Sparta thank his fans for their support on IG despite the low sales numbers.
“New creator ep #9 on #billboard reggae charts #godisgood Spartans we all mek this possible y’all not my fan we family,” he wrote. Elsewhere on the chart, you will find Chronixx debut album Chronology at No. 8, SOJA’s album Poetry In Motion is at No. 6, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley‘s Stony Hill is at No. 4, while the top spot is being held by American band The Green.
Tommy Lee Sparta is currently working on his upcoming debut album, due in April of this year. The project will be the first off his multi-album deal with Sean Kingston’s label Time Is Money Entertainment. Chronixx and Damian Marley are currently battling with three other nominees this year for Best Reggae Album at the upcoming Grammy Awards. A rep for Sparta told us that he hopes to get a nomination next year for his upcoming album.
Aside from working on his new album, Tommy Lee Sparta is gearing up for some upcoming shows in Europe and the wider Caribbean. Last year was a big year for the former Gaza deejay who dominated the airwaves with his music after going back to his Gothic dancehall roots. He also scored some points in the streets for his diss tracks aimed at top-flight deejays Alkaline and Mavado. If you haven’t got a copy as yet, you can get Tommy Lee’s new EP on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
Lyrics to ‘Troye Sivan – The Good Side’ by Troye Sivan:
The guitar-infused ballad with lovely late-arriving synths comes from his upcoming sophomore album, due out this spring. In it, he sings about his acknowledgement of his wrongdoings in a relationship — which many fans believe was the same relationship he was singing about on his debut album Blue Neighbourhood.
Tay-K maybe incarcerated but his music, in this case, “The Race” is still bumping.
The 17-year-old rapper released the song while he was on the run from feds after going on a crime spree. The single “The Race” is now platinum. The single went viral last summer and is showing no signs of slowing down. The track also spawned a number of remixes from rappers like Lil Yachty and Tyga. The song garnered enough buzz to prompt Tay-K’s fans and some fellow rappers to call for his release from prison via the hashtag #FreeTayK.
I should also note that Tay-K is facing some pretty serious charges including murder, kidnapping and armed robbery. Despite his lengthy rap sheet, “The Race” has now surpassed a million units in sales as of January 12th, roughly six months after its release, according to the RIAA. The viral single was recorded and the video was shot while Tay-K was on the run after escaping house arrest. He was eventually captured and placed behind bars and once fans realized his ordeal it further fuels the streaming online. The song peaked at No. 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Tay-K is now a platinum-selling rapper which is not bad considering he is just 17 and facing possibly decades in prison. Last year November, rumors surfaced claiming that K signed a lucrative record deal, but a rep for the rapper later dismissed the reports as bogus. Sources say, however, that a deal is currently on the table with conditions that he can beat his murder case. He is expected to go on trial for at least two capital murder charges this year and a few lesser but still serious charges.
If he is freed this year, Tay-K is lining up to be the next breakthrough young rapper. If convicted, he could be sent to prison for decades.
Migos is a week away from dropping their new album Culture 2.
The Atlanta rap trio sat down with Ebro on Beats 1 Radio on Thursday where they opened up about the upcoming album, due on January 26th. In the interview, Migos discussed Cardi B and Nicki Minaj on “MotorSport” and their beef with Joe Budden. Among the best takeaways from the interview was when Migos categorically states that Culture 2 will be the biggest album this year. Whether or not they can prove that only time will tell.
Ebro asked the trio about getting Nicki Minaj and Cardi B on the same song “MotorSport” and why they failed to get them in the same scene in the music video. “We tried to create that moment,” Quavo said. If they had made that happened to it would’ve been a great moment for hip hop to have two of the leading female rappers currently in the same scene. Nevertheless, getting them on the same song is an amazing accomplishment. Migos is nominated for two Grammy’s in the Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance for “Bad and Boujee.”
Speaking on Joe Budden, the group jokes about putting the rapper turn podcaster back on the map and even making him land a new job with Diddy’s Revolt TV network. “We want to see him win but he don’t want to see us win,” Takeoff said. There was also another moment when Quavo said Takeoff is the best rapper in the Migos group. “When we were all out, going crazy running around, my boy Take was rapping,” Quavo said and Offset agreed. “He the first one to get a gold record.”
Culture 2 release date is set for next week Friday, January 26th. The tracklist for the highly anticipated album is not yet available, hence the guest list is still a secret.
Kodak Black is currently behind bars and is facing at least seven felony charges.
The Pompano Beach rapper, real name Dieuson Octave, was picked up in Florida on Thursday at his home. According to TMZ, Kodak Black was arrested while he was on Instagram Live talking to his fans. Cops not only seized his phone, but laid out several charges against him including, Neglect child without great bodily harm, two charges of possession of weapon or ammo by a felon, grand theft of firearm, possession of marijuana over 20 grams, and two probation violation charges.
Kodak Black is starting the new year almost identical to how he started last year, behind bars. The “Tunnel Vision” rapper has had a number of run-ins with the legal system and in fact he is currently serving a one-year sentence on house arrest and is currently on probation for a separate case involving sexual assault. If these charges stick against him, he could be sent to prison for years for the gun charges alone.
Kodak was awaiting trial for his sexual assault charge at the time of his arrest and there is no doubt that the prosecutor will use that against him. In the video below, you can hear the cops in the background questioning the Project Baby rapper while telling him that they will take his phone because its part of the evidence. This could mean that cops have been watching Kodak Black’s antics on social media for months before moving in.
Kodak Black was indicted in October last year for one count of sexual battery. His trial date was not yet set, but he was on probation and house arrest at the time of his arrest at his Florida home. He required permission from the court and his probation officer to travel even for concerts.
