Multi-platinum Hip Hop Icon, Trap music pioneer, blockbuster actor and label head Tip “T.I.” Harris brought his Atlanta-based Trap Music Museum to Los Angeles with the Lil Trap House art exhibition and popup launch event hosted by Karen Civil.
As an ode to Trap culture, the Lil Trap House Exhibition, featured a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces in honor of the most influential Trap artists such as T.I., Nipsey Hussle, YG, Pusha-T, Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Future, Rick Ross, Migos, Young Thug, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and many more.
Let’s take you through Lil Trap House…
First, exhibitioners start in Grandma’s Living Room with guns, drugs, and money on the coffee table to ultimately symbolize protection and security to the hustlers while visiting. Viewers then step into Gucci Mane’s Lil Trap Kitchen, infamously mentioned in many of his songs with key items like scales, Pyrex measuring cups on the stove, and Atlanta fast food chain J.R. Crickets on the counter. Up the wall, many viewers will get a first-look at Pusha-T Interactive Barcode with the classic My Name Is My Name album cover and opposite of this will be Migos City “The Nawf,” a scaled down model of their Atlanta neighborhood and Young Thug’s “Snake Exhibit. As art-goers look around they will be filled with nostalgia as they see a 3D rendition of The Remake of Future’sDirty Sprite 2 cover, trap icon Young Jeezy’s Brick Wall, Miami’s biggest bossRick Ross’ Mastermind portrait, a remake of his 2014 album, and the legendaryT.I. Rubberband Man installation, which if you take a closer look shows the icon’s entire piece constructed by rubber bands. Before exiting fans are reminded to bow down to the powerful women in the Hip Hop industry with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s Throne, and stare in awe at the YG and late great Nipsey HussleWest Coast Tribute symbolizing unity in music and gang culture in Los Angeles.
The festivities don’t stop there, as part of a collaboration with Delicious Pizza on Sunset Blvd, all in attendance received pizza and merchandise in Delicious Pizza boxes filled with Trap Music Museum and Lil Trap House shirts.
The exhibition will be open to the public for the remainder of July and will allow patrons to fully experience the visual journey of art, culture and creativity as a part of the interactive installation. The Lil Trap House exhibition will continue touring to music festivals and college campuses around the country.

YG slows things up in his new visual “Hard Bottoms & White Socks,” off of his 4REAL 4REAL album.
YG is back with a visual for “In The Dark,” from his new album 4Real 4Real.
YG returns with a new video off his upcoming album ‘4REAL 4REAL.’
YG is sharing an official video for his track “Stop Snitchin.” In the video YG plays a slave who plans an escape from a plantation. His 4REAL 4REAL album drops May 3rd.
The video for “La La Land” – Bryce Vine’s follow-up to the Platinum-certified hit “Drew Barrymore” – was released today and can be viewed HERE. Directed by James Larese (Eminem, Bishop Briggs), it features Vine alongside multi-Platinum, Compton-based rapper YG, actress/model Melanie Iglesias (“Guy Code,” “Girl Code”) and one of the rehabilitated pups from the charitable organization Road Dogs & Rescue. With a satiric edge and a tip of the hat to classic filmmakers like Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino, the bold, vibrant video unfolds across a series of what appear to be quintessential L.A. locations – but the line between real and artificial quickly blurs in the town Vine calls home.
In its first week at radio, “La La Land” (ft. YG) was the #1 Most Added song at Top 40 and #3 Most Added at Rhythm, and is already charting inside the Top 40 at both formats. Spotify streams already exceed 4 million and the lyric video has nearly 1.5 million views. Vine penned the tongue-in-cheek, love-hate ode to Los Angeles with Sir Nolan, who produced both “La La Land” and “Drew Barrymore.”
NYLON hailed “La La Land” as “a classic Cali summer anthem” while Billboard noted, “The cheeky song is a clever send-up to Los Angeles culture.” Lyrical Lemonade said, “Vine’s music has a carefree and blissful tone to it, similar to the likes of rappers like Chance the Rapper and Kyle.” The track followsVine’s Platinum-certified single “Drew Barrymore,” which was a Top 15 hit at both Pop and Rhythm radio. Bryce recently featured alongside Dan Caplen on Feder’s infectious 2018 single, “Control.” Heralded as a “rising star” by PEOPLE, Vine will release his debut album this summer.
Fresh off a sold-out 25-date headline run, Vine is currently playing a slew of college dates and will spend the summer playing a mixture of festivals (including Hangout, Prime and iHeart Radio in Las Vegas) and radio shows. Tickets are available now at brycevine.com. He recently wrapped up a sold-out North American headline tour.

Back in November of 2018, Def Jam left seventeen of their latest signees to their own devices at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, California. The collection of rappers had six days to lay down an album. That was how Undisputed, Def Jam Recordings latest compilation, came to be. The fifteen-track album includes original tracks from developing artists like Ashton Travis, Landstrip Chip, Nimic Revenue, Lil Brook, Fetty Luciano, Bernard Jabs, and more. Rich The Kid, Tyga, and YG also make contributions. “One of the most important aspects of our efforts has centered around building a new roster. Together with these incredible new artists we have developed urgent, cutting-edge and truly great new music and content,” Def Jam CEO Paul Rosenberg said of the project. Undisputed‘s release coincides with the roll-out of Def Jam’s eight-part documentary series of the same name, being presented through WorldStarHipHop. The doc follows the seventeen artists through the label’s weeklong “Rap Camp.”
West Coast off-beat flow, rapper Blueface made a name for himself for his “Thotiana” single. Blue releases the the remix to his single with YG and they’re wilding out and females are twerking everywhere.
