My Guy A$AP Ferg is out here killing the scene! The highly anticipated video for "Plain Jane" has arrived and will not disappoint. All I'm saying is Three 6 Mafia has to be proud of how he bodied their song "Slob on my Knob". The Still Striving stand out, has appearances from DRAM, Rihanna, Pro Era's Kirk Knight and more!
When asked about the video, Ferg says “The vision for the video was to bring it back to the streets and to be with the people. We shot the video spontaneously without planning which made everything feel more personal and true to me. I wanted the video to match my lifestyle; I could be riding bikes in Harlem or turning up at a party in Brooklyn.”

If you're like me, you are tired of being tagged to people music on Facebook . If so, tag them to this link. lol
As an artist, you are a brand, so you have to act as one. No brand is tagging random friends in Facebook Post, they are sending them the product first hand. In an article by Lisa Occhino of MusicThinkTank, she discussed how to truly advertise your music to more than just your friends using Ads Manager.
Relax, it's the effective and affordable way.
"Another big benefit of advertising music on Facebook is that you can get as specific as you want with your targeting — which means that you’re not wasting your precious dollars on advertising to people who aren’t likely to care about your music.
If you’re new to Facebook ads, you’ll probably need to play around with different targeting options for a bit until you hit on the right combination. In Ads Manager, you’ll be able to see in real time how your estimated reach changes as you make tweaks."

Pray for Las Vegas! At least 59 people were killed and over 500 were injured Sunday Night as a gunman opened fire on a Music Festival crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. It's been said to be the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. History.
The gunman has been identified as 64 year old Stephen Craig Paddock, a retired multimillionaire real estate investor and accountant. He killed himself before officers got to him. Paddock had 16 rifles with him in the hotel and 18 more guns explosives and thousands of rounds of ammunition at his home. As of now, nothing connects Paddock's to international terrorism but it's still mystery of why he did it.
Prayers go out to all effected in this sad story.
