THIS ONE IS FOR THE CULTURE… INTRODUCING MY BRAND NEW MEDIA/PRODUCTION PLATFORM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH @AXISREPLAY, AXSD MEDIA! A VIRTUAL PLATFORM DEDICATED TO LIVE + VIRTUAL EXPERIENCES FOR ARTISTS! TONIGHT WE KICK THINGS OFF WITH @AXR.EXP NEW & EMERGING ARTIST SHOWCASE… CHECK MY STORY FOR DETAILS
With this partnership, the multi-platinum rapper and entertainment company, Axis Replay, implemented a monthly concert series that will feature emerging artists who want to perform live for their fans.
The artists are competing for a cash prize and the opportunity to open up for an A-list celebrity for an upcoming show on September 26.
In an interview with HipHopDX, Offset speaks on the adversities artists face during this time.
“With COVID-19 shutting down performances, it’s tough on artists mentally and financially; especially emerging artists. “AXSD Media offers a solution that lets artists do what they love in-person as safely as possible while still reaching fans virtually at the same time. We need to interact with our fans in-person and virtually. AXSD Media found a way to make that happen.”
The CEO of Axis Replay, Allie Young, states that the company’s mission “is to create experience-focused activations and that has translated well into streamed productions. Being a part of the music, entertainment, gaming and sports ecosystem, it made a lot of sense for us to leverage our experience and expertise to reconnect the industries that have been devastated by this pandemic.”
Netflix’s Rhythm + Flow artist, Caleb Colossus, Foreign Jade, DreDay 3.0, Bria Anai, Brendon G, Butta Baby & Papi Curt, Keeyen Martin, Kiya Lacey and Timothy Isaiah are all slated to perform.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, the first concert produced by the partnership will broadcast on FutureStream tonight (Friday September 11th 2020) at 9PM – 11PM EST.
