    DRINK CHAMPS with N.O.R.E and DJ EFN

    Legendary rapper N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN have mixed up a cocktail of laughs and libations that have artists and fans wanting another round!  They first teamed up in Miami around 2010 as co-hosts on a satellite radio show for Sirius XM titled, “Militainment Crazy Raw Radio”.

    The energy and banter between the two was fantastic! This eventually gave birth to their DRINK CHAMPS PODCAST.  It first aired on the CBS Play It Network in January of 2015.  It was an instant hit!  Within the first season they had an astounding 5 million listeners a month.

    N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s DRINK CHAMPS PODCAST was now number one in the country.  This caught the attention of Hip-Hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, who is always looking for ways to expand his empire.  Diddy had already worked with,and had a friendship with N.O.R.E. from his years as a part of rap-duo, Capone-n-Noreaga.

    And just like that it happened...REVOLT TV partnered up with DRINK CHAMPS and added it to their cable network. Less than one year after its birth, DRINK CHAMPS blended from radio into the television world on one of the biggest music channels on cable.  The first series of episodes aired on November 24, 2017.

    DRINK CHAMPS is a movement. It gives artists a new way to communicate information, and an even better way for us to receive it.”, says N.O.R.E.

    The guests are asked questions about their careers in the music business, their successes, struggles and other random, crazy questions from N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN.  The old adage, “a drunk heart speaks a sober mind.”, keeps this show interesting, as your favorite artists tell stories about themselves and the industry that shock and amuse us!

    DJ EFN adds, "It allows the fans to be a “fly on the wall” during conversations they may not otherwise have heard from their favorite artists.”  Don't miss your chance to be a part of the experience. New episodes of DRINK CHAMPS air every Friday on REVOLT TV

  • Next up...PLAYBOI CARTI

    Atlanta, Georgia has yet another talented artist on the rise...PLAYBOI CARTI, formerly known as Sir Cartier.  He released his first mixtape "Young Misfit" on TFZ/Awful Records back in 2012 with no success.  It didn't even make a dent on the charts.

    Passionate about his music and refusing to give up, he continued to write and record music.  He even changed his name to PLAYBOI CARTI.  Three years later his perseverance would pay off.  In 2015 he gained fame with the release of his non-album single "Broke Boi" and began collaborating with top acts like Lil' Uzi Vert and ASAP Rocky.  This led to his appearance on the ASAP Mob's debut album, "Cozy Tapes Vol.1: Friends".  

    CARTI's association with the two musicians/models would give him the opportunity to add another skill to his resume.  He was invited to swag the runways with Lil' Uzi and ASAP in VFiles and Raf Simons fashion events.  CARTI even walked in Kanye West's "Yeezy Season 5" fashion show!

    Things were moving in a great direction.  He appeared on over 20 tracks as a feature with artists such as Quavo & OffSet from MigosGucci ManeTravis ScottJoey Fatts21 Savage and Kodak Black.  In 2016 he was signed to AWGE/Interscope Records and began working on a new mixtape.  His eponymous sophomore effort, "PLAYBOI CARTI", not only dented the charts, it debuted at number 12 on the US BillBoard 200!  Fifteen tracks of heat including collabos with Lil' Uzi VertLeven Kali.  

    His fans describe his music as 'the soundtrack to a mindless good time'.  And a good time is definitely had by ALL whenever his popular single, "Magnolia" (produced by Pi'erre Bourne) is played!  It is CARTI's biggest hit to date, peaking at number 29 on the US BillBoard Hot 100.  XXL Magazine named PLAYBOI CARTI one of the ten in their "2017 Freshman Class", a huge honor for an upcoming artist.  He is currently touring the states with Pi'erre Bourne and Young Nudy.  Catch him in a city near you!

  • MIDNIGHT BLU is Ready To Go...

    LeFrak City is a breeding ground of champions.  It is the home of N.B.A. greats Kenny Anderson and Kenny Smith and rappers N.O.R.E. of CNN and Akinyele.  Sports and Music were a heavy part of the scene.  If you weren't playing ball or spittin' raps, you were on the block hustling.  Some did all three.  N.O.R.E. introduced us to Musaliny-n-Maze and Final Chapter, while Akinyele brought us R&B group Complexion.  Then four friends decided they would stake their own claim on LeFrak's Hip-Hop scene...Coalition Cartel

    Coalition Cartel members Midnight Blu, Castro, Mendoza and Shottie began recording together.  Midnight was no stranger to the booth, he already had a couple solo mixtapes circulating at this point.  Coalition Cartel began creating a buzz by performing at local shows.  As fate would have it, one of their  performances caught the eye of Naughty by Nature's Kay Gee.  He signed the group to a deal and they recorded two albums together.  

    Shortly after, Midnight Blu's activities outside of the studio got him caught up in the infamous LeFrak City raid.  He would spend a few years upstate.  While he served his time in prison the group attempted to move forward but  Midnight's uniquely aggressive sound was missing.  The group eventually parted ways amicably and the members all pursued solo careers. 

    When Midnight was released from prison he dropped a mixtape titled, "Game Over".  It solidified his ability to make music as a solo artist.  After all, he was no rookie  in this rap game.  His body of work speaks for itself with 6 solo mixtapes and 2 group albums to date. 

    Midnight Blu is ready to give the game what it's lacking...raw energy and real rap.  He named himself Blu for his dark skin and Midnight for the biblical meaning; the time when you discover the difference between theory and reality...and it's about that time! 

    Be on the lookout for his new mixtape, "The Lost Files", slated to drop this winter.  In the meantime you can catch him on the hottest new webseries, "Hater's Animosity", based on the novel by Mark 'Miz' Adams.  It debuts on October 25, 2017 on the YouTube Channel.
