New Orleans, Louisiana based Phreedom Records makes sure its artists are ALWAYS working. From keeping them grounded in the studio with the dopest of producers, to touring the Deep South as it recently has been doing with flagship artist Lucki Lew, Phreedom stays working.
Lucki Lew is well-known for his hit single “Hot Spot“, most recently remixed to include a feature with mover and shaker Level. He now has “My Lil Yeah” out on all digital platforms; it features Louisiana standout Tweeday.
This past Saturday, we lost a legend – Desmone “BTY YoungN” Jerome, or “Dee” as he was known to close friends and family. His life was taken via a senseless act and we are still attempting to understand the “why” of it all. We may never know. We may not even really need to know. What we are aware of is the fact that someone so special has been needlessly stolen from us and it left a void in our hearts.
For anyone who truly knew BTY YoungN, this is a devastating loss and one we will never forget. We will carry on his legacy though, for his son, mother, sister, and his other family and friends who knew and adored him. He was a special individual. He was unique. He is irreplaceable to both the entertainment world and ours. YoungN left a mark on the hearts of those who knew him best.
We love you YoungN. And you knew this. Please look over us and keep us safe. We are just completely heartbroken right now, but we will find a way soon to make a positive out of this most negative situation. Your spirit and bright ways will live on forever.
Comedian Dave Chappelle will host “Saturday Night Live” on the Nov. 12 episode, NBC announced on Friday. This will be the first time that Chappelle has ever hosted the show.
A Tribe Called Quest will be the evening’s musical guest to promote their first album in 18 years, “We Got It From Here … Thank You 4 Your Service.”
A comedian, writer and actor, Chappelle is best known as a standup, and for his sketch comedy show “Chappelle’s Show” which ran on Comedy Central between 2003 and 2006. His film credits include “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” and “The Nutty Professor.” He also stars in the 1998 film “Half Baked” which he wrote with Neal Brennan. Recently, Chappelle appeared in Spike Lee’s 2015 film “Chi-Raq.”
Before Chappelle takes the “SNL” stage, Benedict Cumberbatch will host the next episode on Nov. 5. Solange will accompany the “Doctor Strange” star, following the release of her third studio album “A Seat at the Table.”
The 42nd season of “Saturday Night Live” premiered to the show’s largest ratings in eight years. The episode was hosted by Margo Robbie and featured Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tom Hanks and Emily Blunt have also hosted episodes this season.
Chappelle notably has the honor of hosting the first “SNL” episode following election Tuesday on Nov. 8.
