The Fillmore, was the place to be Monday night in Philadelphia. Philly's own Meek Mill held a private pop-up show for his day one supporters. After a full day of press with KicksUSA, Sneakervilla, and BoomPhilly , he and his DreamChasers family landed at the concert venue. There were lines of Meek Mill supporters waiting to get in the show. Once you were inside you were given an exclusive TidalXMeekMill lanyard and your tickets . I was super amped about seeing the show in celebration of his third studio album "Wins and Losses" which released July 21, 2017. I brought my mom as my special guest . She was super excited and It was a great way to continue her birthday celebration. While waiting for the show to start Tidal gave out cool black and white Tidal bandanas and an opportunity to take a photo in The Bosco photo creative photo/video section. Of course my mom and I hit the booth. You also could take a snapshot at the Power 99 radio station. So we headed inside the actual concert area where there were lots of concert goers awaiting the arrival of Meek Mill. While waiting we mixed and mingled, snapped pics, listened to the music that was playing , and just chatted. My mom is my best friend. I'm so serious when I say that. Anyways, more and more people started to fill the room, and the anticipation got higher and higher and before you know it DJ Bran and Meek Mill were live in Dream Chaser color on stage. Instantaneously the entire place got litty. Meek has been around the world, but it's always special when he performs for PHILLY! I'm so proud! We come from the same city. That's motivation forever. Meek performed new tracks such as "Price" ( when he first posted a snippet of this song on the gram I legit couldn't wait for it to drop) , "Issues", "Glow Up" , "Whatever You Need" from his new album "Wins and Losses" and "Save Me" from Meekend 2 . He also performed some classics like "In My Bag" , The Dreams and Nightmares Intro ( which is like the Philly national anthem... hold up wait a minute yall thought I was finished) , "All Eyez On You " and a couple other tracks. His set was already turnt and then he brought out Reco Havoc, Omelly , Cardi B, Offset, and YBS Scola ! Talk about turned up ? Oh it definitely was. Its just amazing every time to see the city and Taylor Marie rap Meek lyrics word for word with so much love and support . Philly ride hard for ours , no matter what. Meek definitely rocked out on stage ! The set was dope and I think it was great that he did the pop up shows exclusively for the fans. I loved the show but seeing Meek come out on stage with that Platinum plaque for "Dreams Worth More Than Money" was everything. He even said "I wish he could give everybody in the audience one." Seeing him with that lets you know he's just going to keep winning. I'm proud! So that was the first of many to come. He's dedicated and determined and just like track 11 (my favorite number ) he can "Never Lose." So make sure you get "Wins and Losses" (here) and glow up! Huge thank you to Tidal and Meek Mill for the show ! I already have Tidal but to all the guest I hope you flipped your TidalXMeekMill lanyard over to get your complimentary 90 day free Tidal trial via www.tidal.com/meekmillfans

The collection features two exclusive custom designs of Beats including the popular Powerbeats3 Wireless and Beats Studio Wireless headphones. Apple Music has chosen the beautiful entrepreneur and social media captivator Kylie Jenner as the new face of the partnership . The launch was perfectly timed with the opening of the Balmain Flagship at 8421 Melrose Place in Los , Angeles. According to www.beatsbydre.com Olivier Rousteing said "The best of music can only be paired to the best in design. Seeing music and fashion as completely intertwined simply reflects how my generation grew up-we simply cannot conceive of one without a full helping of the other."
[Both Beats by Dr. Dre and Balmain are connected by a love for music, fashion and culture. We celebrate diversity, innovation, and the constant challenging of status quo. It's with this very connection that our unique partnership was born. A shared belief that without the diversity that music brings us, our world would be nothing. Music is the thread that connects us all, allowing us to dream, and giving us a way to escape.]
Jaira Burns song "UGLY" was featured in the the clip for the official launch
Mogul Daymond John has mastered the power of using all of his experiences , knowledge , and drive to achieve greatness and motivate people globally. Whether he's writing book , speaking on stage , or sitting in the boss chair on Shark Tank, Daymond is a true go-getter and he wants you to be the same way. I had the opportunity to see him speak live at the "Get Motivated Seminar" in Philly in 2016. I told myself all day I'd get a chance to meet him, I didn't but I will one day . I listened closely as he told the story of his mom teaching him how to sew and creating his FUBU clothing line . As he spoke about how his life progressed over the years and how multiple business opportunities changed his life , not only was I intrigued but deeply inspired.
This morning as I check Twitter, I see a post from him , click on the link and press play on "Think It's A Game- Haters (Part 1) " and I'm so glad I did . Everything he said touched my heart. and it's exactly what I needed to hear this morning for various reasons. A lot of us deal with so many issues, rejection, self - doubt, physical pain , emotional damage and so much more. Yet we have to stop being our own haters and love exactly who God made us to be. I'm going to play this 3:42 track every morning after my prayers . This track is motivational and uplifting. No matter how hard life is , it's a lesson, and failure is a process, and we can't quit despite all of it's mishaps. Just think about it , if Daymond John didn't sit down and learn to sew , FUBU wouldn't have been created. What if he quit, he would've never been in the position be on Shark Tank and invest in other people's dreams and change their lives for the better. If he would have let failure define him , he wouldn't be able to stand on stages across the world and say things that affect people in ways they can never forget. If he would've just stopped when things didn't go his way , he wouldn't have been able to record this track that I needed to hear at this point and time in my life. So for that, I want to say thank you . So everyone listen to this Daymond John Track with DJ Dirty Harry and achieve your goals.
