The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation in New York today announced five new members who have joined their Board of Directors: Michele Anthony (Executive Vice President Universal Music Group); Jody Gerson (Chairman & CEO Universal Music Publishing); Pam Kaufman (President ViacomCBS Consumer Products); Jon Platt (Chairman & CEO SONY/ATV Music Publishing); and artist/producer/entrepreneur Pharrell Williams. “We’re both fortunate and honored to welcome these creative leaders in music and entertainment to our Board,” said RRHOF Board Chairman John Sykes. “Each brings to our Board deep experience and extensive knowledge of music that will help us continue to grow the Foundation as a true cultural institution.”
According to the announcement, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation’s Board of Directors “support the Foundation’s mission to engage, teach and inspire through the power of rock and roll, recognizing the indelible role rock and roll music plays in modern life and culture.” Each year, the Foundation selects the inductees into the Hall of Fame. In partnership with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, its goal is to connect rock and roll fans with the music and artists they love and preserve and protect historical artifacts and records. Each year the foundation hosts its Induction Ceremony recognizing both performers and non-performers who have had the greatest influence on rock and roll music and culture. This year’s ceremony is Saturday, May 2 and will be broadcast live on HBO.

A city official tells the Virginian-Pilot that Williams contacted the city last year asking how he could help after the mass shooting at a municipal building in May. That led to a a multi-year plan involving the singer in tourism and economic development initiatives. As part of that, the singer will narrate two 60-second Commercials with his soon-to-be-released song, “Virginia.”

Just in time for 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard has tapped long-time Adidas collaborator Pusha T to assist on the latest colorway of his Dame 6 signature sneaker. Lillard is not only known for prowess on the basketball court, he is also a respected rapper, who creates music under the alias Dame D.O.L.L.A. — which makes for a fitting collab with Pusha T.
This latest iteration draws inspiration from the look of a mixtape, employing a two-toned upper with white filling in a majority of the lateral side and black for the medial portion. Additional details include “DL-90” and “PSH-T77,” nods to both Lilliard and Pusha T’s initials and birth years, while “I Am My Own Fan” is stamped onto the midsole and toe box with an X and a line and the words “Sign Here” for customization. So it makes sense that to promote their shoe collab, which is on sale now for $140, Lillard and Pusha T have decided to record a rap song. They tapped another big name, Pharrell, to produce the track, which is called “Check The Scoreboard.” Listen and watch its accompanying music video above.
I had to make an Extended of the tune, you can check it out below.
