Renton-born Hip-Hop artist inspires confidence and joy with new song "Worthy"

Hip Hop artist Dave B got his big break when he teamed up with Travis Thompson and Macklemore for the song Cornerstore, where he’s shows his unique ability to sing, just as well as he can rap. With Macklemore, he appeared on Jimmy Fallon and then went on tour in Europe and Australia. “So, that kind of helped me be where I’m at today,” said Dave B. Weeks after the death of George Floyd, he found himself frustrated; and that frustration inspired a song he calls, Worthy. The song is a reminder for black people that they are worthy of respect; and worthy of love. “A lot of people post their black squares and do what they do and they get to throw it to the side they don’t have to live it.

Musicians Who Ruined Their Careers In Split Seconds

Musicians can be on top of the charts one day and in the tabloid headlines the next. When they make mistakes, they aren’t always given second chances by the public. Here are some musicians who ruined their careers in a matter of seconds. Lil Wayne is certainly a wordsmith in his lyrics, but in 2013 he may have gone just a little too far with one of his turns of phrase. On the remix to the Future song “Karate Chop,”  he compared his performance doing a lewd act to the beating of Emmett Till. Wayne earned plenty of ire for this line. Till was an African-American boy who was killed after being accused of whistling at a white woman in 1955 when he was just 14. In a lengthy apology, the rapper responded, “I have tremendous respect for those who paved the way for the liberty and opportunities that African-Americans currently enjoy.
