This past weekend, we attended the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival 2017 and had an amazing time! If you've never been to the Hot 100 Fest, then your missing out on one of the best festivals of the year! The 2-day Festival was held at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Long Island, N.Y. We had the chance to see 58 acts perform on 4 stages throughout the venue. The Festival Village gave everyone the chance to socialize, eat, interact with vendors for games, prizes and more.
The weather was beautiful as a ton of performers were ready for Day One of the Hot 100 Fest. Tinashe, Rick Ross, Kodie Shane, Blackbear, Jason Caruso, Ugly God, Ty Dolla $ign, Party Favor, Shaed and more were set to hit the stage. Gucci Mane, Zedd, Demi Lovato and Big Sean were the headliners on the main stage performing a slew of their hit songs for a packed audience. Zedd welcomed Echosmith singer Sydney Sierota to perform 'Cool Kids' while Blackbear was accompanied by Phoebe Ryan for a recreation of the song 'Forgetting All About You.' The day ended with Big Sean emerging from a cloud of smoke to perform 'Moves,' 'Paradise,' 'Mercy' and more.
Day Two kicked off with a bang as fans were ready for the final day of the Billboard Hot 100 Fest. Ayo & Teo, Echosmith, Cash Cash, Le Youth, Lil Yachty, T-Pain, Yung Thug, Maggie Lindemann and Playboi Carti were just a few of the anticipated artists. DJ Khaled, Marshmello, Major Lazer and Camila Cabello gave the crowd star-studded headlining performances. DJ Khaled brought out his adorable son Asahd along with Fat Joe who performed 'All The Way Up,' 'What's Love,' 'Lean Back,' 'Make It Rain' and 'So Excited.' Lil Yachty brought out A$AP Ferg to perform his songs 'New Level' and 'Work.' Bella Thorne showed the crowd she had some moves at the end of Young Thug's set dancing on stage to his single 'Best Friend.' Marshmello kicked it in the Artist Village, taking photos with fans before his set while Camila Cabello joined Major Lazer on stage for their collaboration on the song 'Know No Better.' Major Lazer also brought out J Balvin to perform 'Mi Gente.' Waka Flocka closed the Hot 100 Music Festival with a head banging performance. He even had the Deaf & HOH Community reps with him to sign the show for the hearing impaired.
The Billboard Hot 100 Festival was amazing and you can see the photos and video recap from the full Festival weekend below. Special thanks to Billboard, Live Nation and all the fans at the Hot 100 Music Festival for making this weekend the best ever!!
If you aren't familiar, We are about to put you on to Alabama’s Hidden Jewel, Mata.
Huntsville, Alabama native Mata releases new video titled “Mental Patient”.
Which made its premiere on worldstarhiphop.
This is a record that speaks of retaliation.
Although we speak out against this topic, as parents this scenario deems it necessary.
Mata, who also produces & engineers recently has been put to the test.
After losing his son to the streets at the tender age of 15.
After experiencing this we can definitely acknowledge the feelings of being a “Mental Patient“.
This song despite the bizarre title is very smooth, melodic, & really displays Mata’s ability to sing, rap, and write.
There are artists who release videos and songs.
Yet, Mata granted us access to his grief and all we can do is thank him for expressing his feelings via his music.

Lil Indiana - U Know How I’m Rocking The witty and unpredictable penmanship of Lil Indiana on his latest single “How I’m Rocking” takes existential hip hop to a new level of fortitude through his professional production credentials and unmatched vernacular. Lil Indiana’s rap deliveries alter between grimy rap bars into conscious and aggressive lyricism. The multifaceted portions of the music meshed with the impeccable orchestration give the instrumental an emotive quality countered with an equivalent gritty undertone. The song fortifies the street scene with an infectious quality embedded into its infrastructure and is meant to be a “Golden Age” hip hop joint. The overall timbre of the sound is wrapped in a unique tonality thrown over every aspect of the single creating an interesting transfer of frequencies that condenses the whole mix.
Lil Indiana goes against the grain of traditional rap artists and serves as a trailblazer in an everchanging hip hop industry. His lyrics hold their own weight in terms of creative innovation and do not become bogged down by an over belligerent rap beat that a lot of contemporary rappers tend to hide behind. This makes for a remarkable listen that dives deep into the imaginative mind of this timeless project. Furthermore, this single is only a small sample of what is embedded in Lil Indiana’s rap arsenal that will undoubtedly transcend the hip hop gatekeepers straight into the listening audience’s ears. Also available on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Soundcloud, Youtube, Amazon

Young DrA (pronounced Dre) is more than just a 19 year old Hip-Hop artist born in Delaware later moving to Chicago. DrA is also a college student who is currently attending the University of Tampa.
He is someone who inspires to revive the essence and authenticity of Hip-Hop music. From the very beginning he has displayed a passion for music, from his childhood days listening to and admiring artist such as James Brown, Baha Men, and The Notorious B.I.G, to his adolescent days creating his first record on an acer computer and a headset microphone at the age of 12.
He has evolved into the type of Musician who sees the importance in using his voice to spread awareness and a positive message through witty metaphors and strategic word play unlike the vast majority of artist in his generation. Through his music he hopes to not only inform the public of the many tragedies going on within our societies, and within his generation, but to unite and encourage the people around him to fight for change.
While he is aware of the generational change in hip-hop music he hopes to touch the masses by providing them with a fusion between 90’s Rap and the fresher sound that has been born into this new era of music. DrA idolizes artist such as J Cole and strives to one day impact the Industry in a similar way. DrA hopes to cross over to that universal audience, much like Cole, his favorite rapper, as well as others. Building on what he feels is an “eclectic” style; Young DrA just may achieve his goals. When asked his thoughts on the messages in rap music he had this to say, “What’s the point of rapping if you’re not rapping about something of substance” DrA says. “My talent is a gift to the world; I choose to talk about and do well with it. There is nothing wrong with being a trendsetter, but I’d rather be an innovator.”
