On August 15th, SAINt JHN and WishATL surprised Atlanta with a listening party for SAINt JHN’s second studio album “Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs” in The Wish Gallery. As soon as the doors opened the gallery was full of fans eager to hear the artist’s upcoming release.
After last year’s release of his first studio album, Collection One, SAINtJHN released a number of popular singles and collaborated with massive artists such as Beyoncé (on the 2019 Lion King soundtrack), Wizkid, Lil Baby and Meek Mill which left his fans hungry for his next major release.
SAINtJHN used the event to connect with and thank all of his Atlanta fans before the album’s official release.

Finishing up his string of in-stores to support the latest mixtape, “10PC MILD,” Trinidad James stopped through the shop yesterday for the final stop of his meet and greet appearances.

In addition to handing out copies of the latest mixtape, James also invited his tour DJ, Genesis to get on the tables to chop and splice up a plethora of Atlanta tracks including many of James’ mixtape exclusives.

After much anticipation, Jay Z has officially unveiled the visuals to his hit single, “Holy Grail” featuring Justin Timberlake.

It would be an understated to say that Kanye West has been making waves leading up to his anticipated June 18th drop of Yeezus. Be it off the strength of the religiously controversial title, or the socially controversial “New Slaces” lyricism or the widely discussed global marketing projection initiative, Mr. West seems to be a role. The latest footage of Ye is captured during an unscheduled session for his European fans while touching down at Design Miami/Basel in Switzerland. Yeezy hits the track “New Slaves” direct over the mic acapella style for all those who were in attendance. It looks like #yeezyseason is really beginning to heat up this summer – stay tuned for the official album drop next week.
