Butcher Brown’s Triple Trey Is Out Now

Butcher Brown’s big band jazz-themed album Butcher Brown Presents Triple Trey Featuring Tennishu And R4ndzzo Big4nd has landed. The group’s rapper Tennishu had initially planned a straightforward hip-hop album but the direction changed and they made a collection inspired by both genres. Their cover of the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Unbelievable” combines both styles effortlessly.  The late Brooklyn MC’s song is the most accessible song on the album but the whole thing is an easy blend of rhyming with the band using the sound of a jazz orchestra to recreate electronic beats. Triple Trey has a visual component that embodies the spirit of jazz eclectism with artwork from Lou Beach who designed the cover for Weather Report’s 1977 fusion classic Heavy Weather and Butcher Brown’s previous #KingButch album. The vinyl version of Triple Trey will be released on November 11th in black and a limited edition blue which will have a 7″ with the 12″ containing two bonus songs, “Guitarmy” and “Peace.” This weekend they will perform at the Monterey Jazz Festival and next month they are part of the lineup at the Indy Jazz Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana. They have also shared a video for “Breevin.'”

 




Flo Milli Headlining Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Tour

Flo Milli is going on her first headlining tour of North America presented by Monster Energy with support from Monaleo. The tour is to support her debut album, You Still Here, Ho? released earlier in the summer. The Alabama rapper made her MTV debut this year with performances of “Conceited” and “Bed Time.” It was only two years ago when Flo Milli’s Ho, Why Is You Here? mixtape came out.  She started posting music on Soundcloud in 2018 and became popular on Tik Tok the next year. Since then, she has been co-signed by Missy Elliott, nominated for Best New Artist at the BET Hip-Hop Awards and reached gold status for her singles “Beef Flomix” and “In The Party.” The artist believes partnering with Monster Energy for the tour is ideal and had this to say, “The best partnership to match my energy is that of a MONSTER. For me and the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour to join forces this fall is going to be a party that you don’t want to miss.” The tour starts on October 18th in Atlanta and has major stops in more than 10 major cities with the last show taking place at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles on November 16th. Tickets are on sale now.
