Previously a member of 'Gwap Boys' in Colonial Beach, Gwa-La has launched his solo career with the support of his new record label 'Don't Lose it Records'. Becoming increasingly confident with his songwriting talents, he has submitted music to Revolt TV and is preparing for the big launch of his solo career with his debut single.

This is an emcee with substance. He doesn’t want to get wrapped up in pain and suffering anymore. Dealing with petty beef is becoming tiresome, this young musician just want to make music, get rich and live far away from toxic people. This is a fair call and sounds good to this writer.

$imp is a term for someone being loving and affectionate towards someone versus Pimp being the direct opposite by using a relationship only to benefit themselves. Even with the album being only seven songs, the transitions, instrumentation and lyrics showed that this two year in the making project took time and effort to construct.

The Intro (Circles), being a love letter about his relationship with God. Then jumping to Red Wine Mood/White Wine Mood which is a hot/cold metaphor in the project showing how someone’s actions in their love life can change overnight. vENTING is one of 301Wheel$’s favorite tracks from the album. It displays him as being transparent and pouring his concerns and heart out. Physical (Interlude) directly embodies the pimp side of the album on how he is straight forward with what he wants out of a specific relationship.

Moon shows 301’s soft side and his affection for someone who is there in the darkest times and brings light. He constantly explains how he is there to give consistent effort towards women mentally, spiritually and physically. Lastly, to end the album with WYWG, this is the most simp song on the project. It shows how he cares for a specific woman so much that he would still be there for her even if the relationship wouldn’t work.

The album is available on all music platforms. Listen to the album on iTunes.

Cardi B has settled her two-year legal battle with former manager Klenord “Shaft” Raphael, Pitchfork can confirm. According to court documents viewed by Pitchfork, the lawsuit, including all claims and counterclaims, is “hereby dismissed in its entirety with prejudice against all parties.” The documents, which were filed December 24 in New York’s Southern District Court, go on to state that “the parties have further agreed that all parties to this action shall bear their own costs and attorney’s fees.”

In April of 2018, Raphael (who is listed as a co-writer on “Bodak Yellow”) sued Cardi for $10 million, claiming that he had been “frozen” out of her career. He alleged that he discovered Cardi and played an “integral role in developing her music career and public image.” Cardi moved from Shaft’s KSR Group to Solid Foundation (the artist management arm of Quality Control) in March of that year.

The following July, Cardi filed a $30 million countersuit, claiming that Shaft put “barriers between [Cardi] and people close to her in an effort to maintain complete control over her” and dictated “who she should and should not see romantically.” It called Shaft “deceitful and disloyal” and “self-serving and controlling.”

Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Cardi B and Klenord “Shaft” Raphael for further comment.

Designed to be a place where Peter Pan would have loved to live in, the sprawling 2,700 acres property belonging to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, has found new owners. Famously known as the Neverland Ranch, Jackson lived in the estate before passing away due to “acute propofol intoxication” as reported by the Los Angeles County Coroner in 2009.

Jackson first bought the land for $19.5mil and have built up various amenities including a zoo, railway and an amusement park, in addition to the 12,500 square-foot main residence. The entire place was like a fantasy land that children would want to spend their time in the entire day. Since the pop star died, Neverland Ranch has been renamed as Sycamore Valley Ranch and was listed for sale on the market for an asking price of $100mil in 2015 but eventually, the price dropped to only $31mil in 2019.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the property was sold for $22mil to billionaire businessman Ron Burke, who was an associate to Jackson and co-founder of investment firm Yucaipa Companies. Burke is also the co-owner of Soho House, a swanky private members club that has operations in 27 countries.
