Rapper Nelly To Perform For All-Male Audience In Saudi Arabia

American rapper Nelly is scheduled to perform in Saudi Arabia next month, and only men are allowed to purchase tickets and attend.




The rapper, famous for songs like “Hot in Herre” and “Country Grammar,” will perform alongside Algerian singer Cheb Khaled in a Dec. 14 concert in Jiddah.

Public activities like concerts and sporting events have traditionally been heavily restricted in the Saudi kingdom. The country’s newly established General Entertainment Authority has worked to promote leisure activities in recent months with a budget of roughly $3 billion.

Nelly is set to perform in Saudi Arabia in December.

As of June, there had been more than 3,000 public events in 2017, up from just 300 the entire previous year, according to the GEA.




The kingdom’s strict morality laws, which enforce prohibitions on alcohol, gender segregation and modest clothing, present some challenges to the GEA’s push. September marked the first time women in Saudi Arabia were allowed into the national stadium alongside men. Women still cannot attend certain events, like the upcoming concert with Nelly and a show earlier this year that featured country music star Toby Keith.

Even with an all-male audience, non-Saudi entertainers can face some obstacles in the content they’re allowed to perform. A co-ed hip-hop dance group called iLuminate reportedly had to adjust their costumes and moves for a performance in Riyadh.

Keith, whose hits include “Whiskey Girl” and “I Love This Bar,” said he was told not to perform songs about drinking, marijuana or sex. “There were only four or five things that I could play that were famous,” he told The Atlantic.

Nelly’s single “Hot in Herre” references alcohol and repeatedly instructs women to “take off all your clothes.”

The rapper’s scheduled performance in Jiddah has drawn criticism from some Saudis, who are pointing on social media to a recent rape allegation made against him, according to The Associated Press.

Nelly was arrested in October after a woman accused the rapper of raping her on his tour bus. The woman subsequently told police she wished to cease the investigation, and Nelly was not charged with a crime.

My interview with Messy Tye happened over FaceTime one November 2016 night.  I sat at my dining room table with a pen and pad ready but quickly realized I wouldn’t need either because my voice recorder helped me keep the natural flow of conversation (however, eventually, my OCD took over, and I needed to write down some key facts throughout the interview.)  Tye does not waste or mince words.  He thoroughly explains his perspective but always makes sure his listener understands it from theirs as well.  Our conversation took a natural, close-to-home feel.  He appeared on-screen with no visible background, very vibrant, and with an all-teeth smile, “Beloved, how are you!?” he asked genuinely and our talk started.

Raptivist. old soul. urban legend
Twitter: @MessyTye

When did you fall in love with rap / hiphop?:  I would say that rap has always been close to me.  My mother would play Eric B and Rakim.  I remember tapes.  There was a vibe you’d get from having a tape in your hand.  CD’s too.  If you had the tape AND the CD it meant you were an avid supporter.  My dad would always drive around in new cars with sound systems playing their songs.  Certain songs remind me of this time.  Certain rhythms, flows and melodies would stick with me and a lot of that music was rap. That feeling I would get listening to this music always stuck with me. 

When did you begin to take rapping seriously?:  My Dad got married when I was 8.  It was the first time I had been to a wedding that I can remember.  it was very lavish with an expensive cake, birds in a cage… The whole nine. I was dancing on the dance floor and set the party off.  It was around that time I realized that I really liked music.  The feeling of making everyone there  happy (mind you I had money thrown at me at that party!) turned into me doing poetry and writing rhymes like the music I heard growing up.  It was in my 3rd grade class I began writing without curse words.  That shaped how I rhyme today.  I began performing my 8th grade year.  I got involved in Music One in Providence, RI.  I  attended their after school program in which we learned about recording and music as an art. We could only record positive tracks and I remember performing in a gymnasium full of people and I had to perform with a singer about being drug free.  

Did you have someone who pushed you through different things?  I had to learn a lot of things on my own.  This helped me get a better understanding of myself.  It brings me back to a time where I lived in Connecticut with my dad.  Spruce is someone I met from Springfield MA. while staying with my dad.  Spruce and I did a fashion / talent show.  Nobody really talked to me at this school, then i started getting in with the after school program, teamed up with Spruce and actually won the talent show.  I’m reminded of this every time I perform because it was something that really pushed me to be comfortable on stage and with myself.  My mom raised 6 children on her own.  I felt pushed aside for certain things but never lacked understanding.  I had to go through a lot to realize my potential in music




What is a positive vibe to you?   A non-judgmental environment.  It’s all about the vibe.  I’m reminded of Free Spirit (Messy Tye’s first project release, dropped in 2014, which he credits for helping him find his vibe.)  I truly feel that project is a gem and will withstand the test of time but It helped a lot in many creative and professional ways.  I was going through an issue which was not normal for a typical 18/19 year old so I had a lot to get out and write about.  I wanted to spread my message to people and the timing was perfect.  It’s always been about the vibes.

“I felt ashamed about it, finding out the way I found out.  But at the same time I never forgot what my goal was since 8 years old.  I still remembered my place as far as where I stood and where I wanted to go”  

An example of a positive vibe is when I performed with Rakim and was able to have my mom meet him.  

“My introduction to rap was the same person I was able to introduce to my mom.  

That moment was my way of letting her know that I know what I’m doing.  I think that’s when she knew.”

How Did You Get Your Name?  Messy Mya is who inspired my name.  He was a YouTube rapper / comedian at the time and I saw Nicki Minaj and Chad Ochocinco sending condolences on Twitter for his death.  I researched him and learned all about him.   I was about to have a kid at the same time as him, mine being born only a month later than his so I had a connection to him.  He was an organic individual.  This resonated with me because again, I only learned about this man after his death.  His life helped me learn how to be the most inspirational person I could be.  

“The representation Messy Tye meant to me at the time still feels the same today.”  

Messy means to be yourself.  There’s art that looks Messy but when you really concentrate on it, it’s art.  You can’t put a label on it.   I promised myself that as long as I have the Messy name, I will represent self love and confidence and not forget where I got it from…  I really feel like I owe a lot to Messy Mya.  The Messy brand allows me to be who I am naturally.

What are your plans for the near future?  Just keep working out here in California.  I always knew LA would be perfect for me.  There is so much room for someone like myself.  Things back home would always pop up and give me reminders of California.  I would listen to The Fresh Prince theme  and Weezer “Beverly Hills” just to catch the vibe.  There’s a lot of things we don’t have access to on the East Coast that they do on the West Coast in terms of music.  The opportunities are endless. 

 “I got to get out here and be where I wanted to be.  I never knew when I’d get out here but I wrote it in my songs and started saying things that would make it a reality for me.”  

You have to part ways with where you may be at currently, so you can come back and make positive changes in what you can.  Certain people who have unfortunately passed away have motivated me to know enough to get out while I can and come back and make a positive influence for people going through their daily lives.  Empathizing connects me to the universe. Give people positive energy and not expecting it back works for me.  

Anything to wrap up with?  “Where I come from is a true representation of my roots.  I have to do everything in my power to keep everything that’s growing from where I came from watered and flowering through every season.  Because even though the seasons change the ground we walk on is still the state we come from.”

“Stay loyal to the soil”.  

“I’m devoted to the craft.  Word to Jimi Hendrix”

Jay-Z Stops Concert To Give Empowering Message To 9-Year-Old Girl

 

Jay-Z interrupted his own show to deliver some inspirational advice to a young girl in the audience.

The rapper paused his “4:44 Tour” stop at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sunday to tell an unidentified 9-year-old that she could be “anything that you want to be in the world.”

At this very moment, America is way more sexist than they are racist,” he said. “But you, young lady, you got the potential to be the next president of the United States. You believe that.” Video of his address is now going viral.

 
 

Jay-Z used part of his performance at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena last week to issue a similar positive message.

 

There’s a lot going on in the world right now,” he said, per The Tennessean. “But I just wanna say one thing, love will always trump hate.”

While the music star didn’t call out President Donald Trump by name with the comment, he has previously criticized Trump and his policies.

In September, Jay-Z told the BBC that Trump was “a joke.” “I can’t even say with all due respect, with all disrespect,” he added.

Because there’s no pre-allocated(or pre-mined) funds to the founding members. Instead, 100% of the coins will be mined by the community, starting from genesis.

Smart Contract

With smart contract technology, Musicoin can run a special machine code called a Pay-Per-Play license (PPP). Every time a track released by a musician is played, whenever and wherever, the license code will be triggered and confirmed by tons of other users. This code snippet will soon become the most executed transaction because the enjoyment of music will back the whole Musicoin economy, aka Musiconomy. Since music consumption,eventually, will be bonded to coin(s) in transaction, the whole economy will prone to stable.In this way,Musicoin will become a global currency really flow sentimental interactions universally.
