BEVERLY HILLS, CA- B.M.B Records, one of the fastest rising empires in the urban music industry will present an exclusive press meet and greet for Charli Baltimore premiering her new video “Bed Full of Money” and introducing Detroit’s fast-rising superstar Kash Doll on Tuesday, April 21st hosted by Luxe Hotel in Beverly Hills at 360 N Rodeo Dr. 7:30pm – 9:30pm.

Each B.M.B artist offers unique styles and perspectives based on real life experience in their music and videos. While Baltimore draws on her creativity to deliver highly regarded, brain pleasing metaphors, Kash Doll is a straight shooter and takes a direct, boss-up approach to communicate her ambitions and bankable talent. They will greet media, DJs, promoters, and entertainment VIPS to discuss their current projects and future plans.

Directed by Jeff Reyes of Echosworld Entertainment, the “Bed Full of Money” video is being serviced to top domestic, international and local outlets as part of a full scale promotion and publicity campaign to promote Baltimore’s anticipated album ETHOS which will follow the success of her Hard 2 Kill mixtape that reintroduced her to the mainstream and earned her a 2014 BET Awards Best Female Hip Hop Artist nomination. The Philly native is thrilled for the opportunity to reveal her latest visual offering. According to the Grammy nominated writer and artist, “We shot for 12 hours in LA in November… by the time we filmed the underwater scene it was 45 degrees, Jeff was such a trooper. After he got in to set up, I just summoned the courage to jump right in.” Baltimore adds “The true divas of the set were the wolves, they had to be pacified because we were running behind their call time!”

Described by Reyes as a visual interpretation of her lyrical wealth; “Bed Full of Money” is much sexier in comparison to Charli’s previous music videos. Reyes’ tapped into his edgy, yet luminous cinematic aesthetic to present an off the grid imagery; a refreshing departure from typical paint by numbers or scenes synced with lyrics.

B.M.B will continue the collaboration with Echosworld Entertainment on its new rap princess Kash Doll’s “Accurate” video. The melodic banger, is a follow up to her popular AV Compton remake of “Run Me My Money”. On Monday, April 20, 2015, Reyes will commandeer another high end production in Los Angeles that will show the world what Detroit already knows about the living doll who sold out St. Andrew concert hall at her 1st concert and regularly sparks frenzy among hundreds of thousands of social media super fans who she affectionately calls her ‘Baes’.

“The creative goal of the ‘Accurate’ video is simple-lay to rest any doubt of her validity,” explains B.M.B CEO, Brian M Brown. “From modeling, to exotic dancing and her transition into acting and rapping, Kash Doll is on point and accurate at everything and anything she aspires.”

Invited media and tastemakers will be treated to a special screening of the “Bed Full of Money” video and have to opportunity to interview and meet Charli and Kash Doll.

What It Do With The LUE: NoFace The Shadowmen

NoFace The ShadowmenWhat It Do Beautiful People! It’s no secret how much I love talent, especially unique talent. Last year I had a chance to see an amazing artist that they call, “NoFace The Shadowmen”. When I first met him I was like “Ooookkkaaaay!” I was a little unsure and didn’t know what to expect until he began to play. This man is a genius when it comes to rocking on the keys. His music puts you in the mind of Jimi Hendrix. His funky sound will take into a trance and get you dancing all night long. Growing up an orphan not knowing his parents, he was able to use that hurt and pain to make feel good music for all to enjoy and love.
Performing all over Southern California and beyond he has truly left his musical mark.

“Noface” is the shadow who came to life. His magic is music. Calling himself a “Citizen of the world”, he possesses a style and vibe from both past and future. We don’t know where he came from, but we do know where he is going, everywhere! His bold, unique sound turns air molecules into keys. These keys unlock the hearts, minds and souls of the beautiful listener, allowing them to meet him in a sound. “Born of the dark, I create in the dark. I listen in the dark. There, sounds glow like birds on fire in stormy skies. Orphaned. Without a mask, I am beautiful!” states Noface Shadowmen.

Never judge a book by its cover. Make sure to check him out. Until next week, L’s!

Following a presentation to chapter members and two years of prayer and planning, members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Eta Nu Omega San Bernardino/Riverside Chapter, completed its pilgrimage to the Motherland during the month of March 2015 with an itinerary started in London, England, and continued to Cape Town, South Africa, Chobe Safari Lodge, Botswana, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, and Johannesburg, South Africa, along with thirty-nine member group included eighteen Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority members, representing chapters from California, Maryland, Illinois, and North Carolina.

The development of the trip began as a vision of local chapter members, Annette Weathington, Immediate Past President, and Shalimar Horsley, Global Poverty Chairman, both of Eta Nu Omega Chapter who had visited South Africa in 2011 and 2013, respectively, with tour group, Mahogany Vacations, an African American owned travel company. While touring in Africa, the ladies easily noted the beauty and rich culture of the people, but the deprivation in countries where the economies boast some of the world’s highest levels of unemployment, poverty, and medical challenges had a much greater impact. The deplorable conditions were a reminder of Alpha Kappa Alpha’s commitment to address the issues of global poverty; Eta Nu Omega Chapter members eagerly embraced the challenge that Shalimar proposed with the cooperation of Mahogany Vacations owner, Perez Melhado a life changing “vacation with a purpose” was organized by the pair.

Visits to Baphumelele children’s home, founded by Rosalie “Mama Rosa” Mashale in 1989, for orphaned children ages 0-18, and the Iliso Care Society, a soup kitchen founded by activist Vivian Zilo in 2005, provide services to underserved children. Both organizations are located in the Khaylitsha Township where they provide services to underserved children.   The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority members, the members of the Mahogany Vacation staff, and the other tour guests collectively donated food, clothing, diapers, personal hygiene items, toys and other supplies, as well as monetary donations.

Other highlights of the trip included a visit to Robben Island where President Mandela and other political activists were imprisoned, participation in several African safaris, a tour of Cape Town vineyards, a walking tour through the glorious Victoria Falls, and a visit to District Six, a former inner-city residential area in Cape Town, South Africa, where over 60,000 inhabitants were forcibly removed during the 1970’s by the apartheid regime.  Tours of Nelson Mandela’s presidential home, as well as his Soweto home, the Apartheid Museum, and the Iziko Museums Slave Lodge was additional highlights that contributed to the experiences of the group.

Local presiding Eta Nu Omega Chapter president, Tiena Johnson-Hall stated, “Our objective was to do more than tour different African countries, we wanted to witness and better understand the history of the countries we visited and to provide support for two grass-roots projects that were actively making a difference in the lives of the people in those communities.  Service to mankind is a key component of Alpha Kappa Alpha’s principle goals, so participating in a cultural tour that included a giving back element is quite rewarding on many levels.”
