THE ACADEMY CELEBRATES THE ANNIVERSARY OF MLK’s SPEECH BY GIVING BACK BEFORE SHOWING OUT WITH ASCAP

 

Academy brings A New Era, A New Institution and A New Standard to

King Middle School

 

 

(Atlanta, GA) The Academy founders DJ Drama, Don Cannon, and Trendsetter Sense will take over Atlanta September 9th & 10th with a series of inaugural events to launch their new DJ collective. Philadelphia natives Drama, Cannon and Sense believe The Academy venture allows them to give back to the music industry by providing leadership to DJs, artists, and up and coming industry executives. It also gives them a platform to encourage youth to be positive influences in their schools and community. “DJs are the ultimate influencers through music. We know the media can paint a negative picture when it comes to young people, but there are a lot of young people out there doing good things. We want to highlight these “positive influencers” and encourage them to continue doing good work,” Don Cannon explains.

DJ DRAMA, DON CANNON AND DJ TRENDSETTER SENSE REUNITE TO LAUNCH THE ACADEMY

Founders of the Aphilliates form strategic alliance of rated next DJs

(Atlanta, GA) The founders of one of the most progressive DJ clique’s in hip hop; DJ Drama, Don Cannon and DJ Sense have reunited to take over the music industry with their newest endeavor The Academy. Years ago the trio travelled from Philadelphia to attend Clark Atlanta University where they became one of the most influential forces in new school hip-hop. The Aphilliates singlehandedly fused East coast bravado with the new southern hip hop sound, which singlehandedly lead to mixtapes becoming the #1 underground marketing tool in hip hop and resulting in “rapstar” status for southern hip hop royalty such as TI, Young Jeezy, Yo Gotti, the Aphilliates front runner DJ Drama and many more. Their aggressive approach to mix tape promotion changed the game of music distribution, triggering new laws for music piracy. Today, almost a decade later, the trio are reuniting to create the next generation of influential radio/club/promo DJs and music executives entitled The Academy. “With the Aphilliates we didn’t plan for that magic to happen that way, it just happened.  We knew we had something special with the three of us, but there was a lot we didn’t know. We’ve learned a lot since then.  We’ve all had successes outside of the collective, but there is strength in numbers, strength in collaborating so the time is right for us to do something on a bigger level with what we’ve accomplished,” says DJ Drama.

HOW TO SHOP YOUR DEMO IN 2012?

Its incredible that throughout all these years in the music industry no matter what or where I go, the biggest & first question people always have for me when they get to see me is “How Do I Shop My Demo”.

Does Young Jeezy Still Have A Place In Hip Hop?

November 25, 2011 1 comment

http://thewellversed.com/2011/11/23/opinion-does-young-jeezy-still-have-a-place-in-hip-hop/

This is for those that still believe. That still remember the first time they listened to Trap or Die. The ones that applauded Thug Motivation 101, and supported even through The Recession.  This isn’t about the relevancy of “trap” music, because Young Jeezy means much more to Hip Hop than that. As an artist whom has received critical and commercial success, he stands in a league all his own, and yet none at all. Hard to imagine but Jeezy finds himself in quite the predicament, a turning point in his career. His current standing in the rap game is as complex as the industry itself, and yet one can’t help but still hear hope when they mention his name. Read more…
