FNT takes Miami for the first time, partnering with local music powerhouse iii Points. After two consecutive sold out shows in New York and Los Angeles, FNT is bringing its unique blend of combat sports, music and nightlife to Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood. Invading the raw warehouse space of Lemon City Studios, New York brawlers are fired up to compete with the best Miami has to offer. With music provided by some of South Florida’s premiere DJ’s, Venus X, Silent Addy, Sean Bang, Kamari Esson, B2B, LTENGHT, Yazmine & Gami.

Begun as an illegal fight party in a Soho storefront, FNT has since grown out of its roaming roots and become a unique live entertainment that has attracted high profile fans such as A$AP Rocky, Alexander Wang, Martha Hunt and Hanne Gaby Odiele. Planning to develop into a global league, FNT is poised to disrupt the fight industry from the ground up.

FNT was created by Bekim Trenova and is produced by cultural and creative force MATTE Projects. At it’s core, FNT is about bringing together emergent communities and storytelling about the grinding pursuit of a dream through the lens of combat sport culture. The hard-hitting evening features fighters across disciplines, including MMA, Muay Thai, and Kickboxing. The added layer of performances by DJs and hip-hop artists creates FNT’s unparalleled atmosphere, which expertly walks the line between sensory overload and bumping party. Past editions of FNT have included surprise performances by Camron,
A-Trak, Flipp Dinero, Maliibu MiitchThutmose and Jadakiss.

Immediately following the Miami premiere, FNT returns to Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 21 and will continue to expand throughout the year.

It’s a party. It’s a fight.
FNT is back.

DIRECTOR(S): Reliant Film Production and ThinkRedDotMedia
PRODUCER: AD the Artist
ALBUM: iOUx | via Apple/Spotify/Soundcloud

In the wake of his freshly released album iOUx, Tampa’s AD the Artist gives CitrusRap the green light to let loose the official video for “Forever Green”, one of the stand out tracks from the project. A self produced, head-bobbing and seductive ode to the love of your life, that walks a thin line between modern rap and a pop smash. Reliant Film Production and ThinkRedDotMedia provide the visuals to match the high level of the track. AD the Artist is constantly showing and proving his value in today’s music industry, with his heavily layered performance and quality content such as “Forever Green”. With this type of momentum, there is not feat that he can not conquered.

x0 – F4ckl0ve (EP)

COVER ART: William Alan Harris

Setting our ears ablaze with his CitrusRap debut, up and coming artist, x0, gives us an entirely different vibe with an emotion filled EP called F4ckl0ve. An apologetic and affectionate compilation for a special someone performed perfectly by x0. The southern ground stomper uses his musical prowess to state that this project is special to him and that there will never be another like it. We stand with his word and urge the listen, as x0 endearly delivers.

Nasty Noona – Deathbed (Dir. Nasty Noona & Dylan Noir) [Video]

by .

DIRECTOR: Nasty Noona & Dylan Noir
PRODUCER: Dylan Noir
STREAM: via Apple/Soundcloud

Nasty Noona and Dylan Noir deliver the official video for the highly applauded track “Deathbed”, which serves as her visual debut. As Nasty Noona begins to show growth in her lifestyle, she continues to match that fire within her music. Also produced by Dylan Noir, “Deathbed” is an airy psalm, that she uses to show and prove her steady building artistry of dark words, 80’s rock inspired rhythm and melodic ballads. The visuals match just that, with Nasty Noona and Dylan Noir giving a subtle, but cinematic overlay for the emotion driven score. As short lived as this video is, it is everything that we asked for and more from this rising star of an artist. A video that demands to be replayed, over and over again.
