The Curse of K.K. Hammond Announces Special Halloween Pre-Sale For New Album “Death Roll Blues”

K.K. Hammond is recognized as the “Queen of Horror Blues” music. Her 2023 album release, “Death Roll Blues” goes on Pre-Sale this Monday, October 31st, 2022 -Halloween.

The Curse of K.K. Hammond is an innovative slide guitarist, singer and songwriter who is interpreting Blues music from her own unique perspective. With a love for all things dark, she takes influence from Blues icons such as Skip James, Robert Johnson, Son House, Charlie Patton and Leadbelly, and combines it with her personal musical style and lyrics, thus creatively transforming the Blues genre into her own unique sound, known as “Horror Blues.”

Hammond explains her sound: “It must never be forgotten than Blues music traditionally arose out of some very hard times for African American people and has touched upon some dark subject matters historically. Of course, the early folklore surrounding musicians such as Tommy Johnson and Robert Johnson selling their souls to the devil certainly paved the way for the combination of blues and horror themes too. My lyrics tend to be pretty dark and unsettling at times, and I felt this was the perfect springboard to launch myself into making horror themed music videos to best deliver them.”

Her highly anticipated new album “Death Roll Blues” is scheduled for release on March 31, 2023. In order to celebrate the spooky season in its full force, K.K. Hammond has announced a special Halloween pre-sale for the album, thus giving listeners an opportunity to get a look at the album before the official launch date. For those who purchase the album in advance, the title track will be available as an “Instant Gratification” track.

Chief Keef Electrifies Summer Smash with “Faneto” Performance After Decade-Long Chicago Ban, Watch the Epic Moment!

The Summer Smash festival was the highlight of the weekend, rocking Bridgeview, Illinois, just a stone’s throw from Chicago. This event marked a monumental occasion for Chief Keef, the influential hip-hop artist who had been banned from performing in his hometown for nearly a decade due to the chaos his shows incited. The prohibition was so stringent that even a hologram performance was denied, forcing it to relocate to Indiana without success, as noted by Stereogum.

For Chief Keef, this homecoming performance was a significant milestone. The last time he performed in front of his Chicago fans was on August 3, 2012, and he had never had the chance to deliver his massive hit “Faneto” live in his hometown—until now.

Lil Yachty captured the electrifying moment at Summer Smash, sharing a video retweeted by the NFR Podcast. The footage shows a sea of fans erupting with energy, rapping along to the chorus with unbridled enthusiasm. The sheer joy radiating from both the crowd and Chief Keef himself is palpable, marking another major achievement for the artist in 2024.

This year has been a standout for Chief Keef, who has been reconnecting with his dedicated fan base. He finally released “Almighty So 2,” over a decade after the original. Additionally, he and Mike WiLL Made-It dropped their mixtape “DIRTY NACHOS” in March. Keef has also been featured on several hot tracks, collaborating with artists like Sexyy Red and Lyrical Lemonade.

What do you think about Chief Keef’s triumphant return to Chicago with “Faneto”? Is it his best stadium anthem, or do you rank other tracks higher in his discography?

BIA Claps Back at Haters After Electrifying Summer Smash Performance

BIA is not holding back this year, making waves with a powerful performance at the Summer Smash festival on Saturday (June 15). Following her electrifying set, she sat down with Tallie Spencer for an exclusive interview, where she shared her candid thoughts on handling haters and criticism. This topic carries a new weight for the Massachusetts MC, especially in the wake of her public feud with Cardi B. However, BIA’s response was all about maintaining a positive outlook and not wasting energy on negativity.

“When I came out, I said ‘Fk that bh,’” BIA declared unapologetically. “That’s my message to my haters: Fk that bh. I don’t dwell on my haters because I’m so positive and having such a great time with my life. I try not to let outer interferences mess up my mood because I’m so grateful to be here. We’re having fun, like, who gets to do this for fun? We’re blessed, so I don’t let stuff like that bother my frequency.”

BIA’s gratitude is evident as she continues to achieve new milestones in her career. Recently, she dropped a hot new track, “LIGHTS OUT,” featuring JID for the Bad Boys: Ride Or Die soundtrack. This collaboration showcases her talent and versatility, solidifying her place in the industry. After a successful 2023, BIA is poised to make 2024 even bigger and better.

Fans are also buzzing with anticipation for a potential new collaboration with Nicki Minaj, teased back in August last year. While there’s no confirmation yet, the possibility of another banger from these two artists is exciting. Regardless of what’s next, one thing is certain: BIA’s work ethic and passion will continue to shine through in everything she does. The “Whole Lotta Money” star is too thankful for her success to give anything less than her best.
