Our Top Shares of 2020

Cakeswagg has been lit all 2020, dropping bars every Tuesday for her fans. Tap-in.

We’ve been sharing more music than ever this year. We’re on the radio every week dropping new mixes, we tapped in with artists across the country for Season VI of the LFOD Radio podcast, and we launched our submissions form to make it easy for ya’ll to send us your art. When we say ya’ll, we mean artists, fans, and everyone in between. It’s been dope connecting with so many different people this year.

When we hear/see something, we say something! We do most of our sharing on Twitter and Facebook where we can post links, but there’s some gems on our Instagram as well.

We looked back through the analytics and put together this list of our audience’s favorites from January through November 2020. Some of these may be brand new to you, others could be welcome reminders… It’s been a wild year – not easy to keep track of all that’s happened.

Let us know what you think! And if you’ve got something you’d like us to share, we’re here for it!

And now the music… No particular order.

K.A.A.N. – The Escape

LFOD Radio interview with DJ Mic Lamb, QNC Entertainment

Artistry & Activism

It’s hard to even put into words how we’re all feeling right now. We wanted to have that conversation, though. What does it mean to be an artist right now? What are our roles in pushing social change? What can we do and how do we make a difference?

Rilla Force, Lightfoot, Brandie Blaze, CakeSwagg, Dart Adams, Kadeem, and Pronzy talk about all these things and more in the above video. There is also a transcript below, if that medium is better for you.

This is only the beginning of the convo… Let us know if you’d like to be involved in future talks, other topics you’d like to hear discussed, or information we could help you find. And please share with anyone you think could benefit from viewing.

Be safe, 

Sam

Scrilla is from Massachusetts but makes his home in Miami these days, producing, managing, and creating music of his own. Ross is something of a NH/VT legend, who also finds himself down south these days, although for much different reasons. Atlanta next week!

LFOD Radio Ep. 168 (Looking back at #24in24)

Three years ago today, we released our first album.

We reached out to the artists involved, and here’s what they had to say looking back.
