unspecified-25

This past weekend, the Bud Light Party culminated its 13-city tour hosting the Convention of all conventions, with Big Sean, DJ Khaled, G-Eazy and DNCE. The evening was hosted by Power 105.1’s Angela Yee and actor Michael Pena at the Time Square Playstation Theater. Skating Aratas kicked off the night with an electrifying dance routine to get the crowd hype before Yi and Pena introduced DNCE to hit the stage. In between sets DJ ProStyle spun some of the biggest hip-hop and pop tracks.

G- Eazy then sent the crowd into a frenzy with his hits “Me, Myself and I,” “Order More,” and “Let’s Get Lost.” Angela Yi then stepped out and invited the crowd to “raise one to right now” and toast to the night with Bud Lights in hand. Shortly after, Big Sean stepped out and lit the stage ablaze calling the fans to rap along to “Beware,” “Clique,” and “IDFWY.” And just when fans thought it couldn’t get any better DJ Khaled joined the stage, bags in tow, and to speak with the crowd and play a bit of his club bangers.

Aside from the amazing performances, fans were able to grab cold brews and take part in various interactive activations onsite from a photo station to collecting cool Bud Light swag.  With the two of them on stage – the final Convention ended in a fashion befitting of the Empire State!

Jensen Kirk Drops New Project ‘Kissed by the Sun’ + Teaser Track “Loading…” prod. by ChaseNCashe [New Music]

jensen-kirk-kbts

Hailing from South Central, L.A., rapper Jensen Kirk premieres his new body of work entitled Kissed by the Sun and teaser track “Loading…” produced by ChaseNCashe. 

Jensen gained major notice by in 2009 once he presented his song “Paper Chaser” featuring Detroit’s own, Big Sean, which was made it’s debut on KanyeUniverseCity.com; a past blog by Kanye West. It was not too soon that the two performed the hit track all over LA, gaining even more notoriety.

Soon after, tragedy struck when Kirk lost his best friend to violence, and his cousin was shot eight times, closely brushing with death. During a period of numbness for the budding artist, the following years were spent in the streets, pondering on the once current tragedies. But later, it begin to wear off in 2014. The isolation led to the self-titled Jensen Kirk LP, released in 2015. The LP garnered more than 50k streams on Soundcloud, which featured production by Tariq Beats, Super Miles, G Rocka, Medi and PJ Escobar.

Today, another year has followed with growth, being ‘Kissed by the Sun.’ It’s not only the title to Jensen’s debut album, but it is also a way of life.

Love who you are and never settle. – Jensen Kirk

Let it be known today, that Jensen Kirk is THE one to watch.
