According to The Pilot, Pharrell wants to make Virginia Beach a movie destination. “As I stood on set among all of this positivity and productive energy, I asked myself: Why were we telling a Hampton Roads story in Atlanta?” said Pharrell about shooting Hidden Figures three years ago. His solution is to create a film and sound stage campus, possibly in Virginia Beach. “Virginia raised me and made me who I am today,” Williams said in an email to The Pilot.
“Nothing would make me happier than to work with the state of Virginia on making it a place where people come to create film, television shows and advertising. It would provide jobs and inspiration.” Williams is consulting with Venture Realty Group, a commercial real estate developer based in Virginia Beach, on possible sites for a future film campus, according to Donna MacMillan-Whitaker, a managing partner in the company. “For now, we are focused on putting the right program together, something that attracts the right business, adds jobs and increases revenues for the state,” she said. “Pharrell Williams has always wanted to bring back and help grow the film industry in Virginia Beach and create opportunities for others to have in his home city,” legislator. Del. Glenn Davis said about the project.
According to Pusha T, he is finally ready to release the follow-up to his last album “King Push: Darkest Before Dawn (The Prelude)” released in 2015 this Friday via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam, but the new album won’t be called ‘King Push’. The whole album is produced by Kanye West and probably Co-Produced by his camp producers, so don’t be surprised to see five to six names on the producer credits. The album will be called ‘Daytona’ and will only have seven tracks on the album with features by Rick Ross and Kanye West. Pusha T explained why he named the album ‘Daytona’ and not ‘King Push’.
“I felt it didn’t represent the overall message of this body of work,” he wrote. “Daytona represents the fact that I have the luxury of time. That luxury only comes when u have a skill set that your confident in.” He added, “This album is for my family… high taste level, luxury, drug raps fans. Literally this is nothing more than the outcome of our musical therapy sessions.” “I done this album like three times,” Push said last September. “[Kanye] come in and pick all the beats and shit and then he’d scrap them and say, ‘I can do better.’ These past two months we’ve just been locking in… getting this album perfect for y’all.”

Wrap This Podcast (Hip Hop Talk In Spanish)
“Saturday May 12. Its 5:50 am and my two alarms started ringing, yes I had to set up two loud and annoying alarms, I couldn’t risk myself. Had an hour to get ready because I had to be at the bus station before 7am. The bus trip was about 4 hours, it started at 7:30 am in the south of California in Calexico, a border city with Mexico, and it ended at San Bernandino at noon. I never recalled being in San Bernandino before it seem like a really calm city. I had time to explore around because my room at the hotel was not available until 3 pm, so I walk around downtown found a Starbucks to chill before heading to the hotel.
When I finally got into the room, again it took me like an hour to get ready to head to POWERHOUSE 2018, I was still undecided on which shirt I was going to wear my Fly Or Die Tee or the Provider Tee, I end up wearing the Provider tee. I arrived at the venue (Glen Helen Amphitheatre) around 4:30pm there was not too much at first, walk around to look a concert T-Shirt ,after I found one I went to the area I bought my ticket for, Tinashe was doing her set. The ‘festival’ had a great line up. I had a chance to see, Lil’ Dicky, Asap Ferg, Tech9ine, Snow Tha Product, Lil’ Jon (Lil’ Jon set was crazy for real, he brought out E-40 and Too Short to perform some classics) Miguel, Ty Dolla $ign, Yo Gotti, Logic, Jadem Smith and more.
