When A Night of Nashville Hip Hop came to The Cobra Nashville in October, it ended up being one of the best nights in the young history of NashLive!
You know what they say: every blockbuster deserves a sequel!
With that, we’re thrilled to announce that A Night of Nashville Hip Hop II will be coming to Cobra on Friday, May 27. We have an incredible lineup to help us celebrate all things Nashville hip hop and R&B, with performances from (in alphabetical order):
Wall to Wall Entertainment (Tee Walls, Keith Mosley, and Esquire)
Come celebrate Nashville’s vibrant hip hop and R&B community with us! It’s just $10 at the door, and you must be 21 or older to enter. In the meantime, you can learn more about other NashLive! shows riiiiight over here.
Last month, we told you that Music on the Move Studios was planning a special LGBTQ+ edition of their all-female showcase, set to take place at BentoLiving Chestnut Hill on Friday, June 24 — the night before the official kickoff of Nashville Pride WEek.
That showcase now has an official lineup!

This past Friday, I had a chance to reconnect with the root of my passion for music and live performance by attending The Mixtape Tour with New Kids on the Block, Salt N Pepa, En Vogue, and Rick Astley.
The experience brought to mind a broader question: who were we, and what were our passions, before the world got in?
We’ve got a lot of rock tunes from across the pond in the UK. In fact, this week’s UMC20 is frontloaded with ’em!
There’s more to the story, though — there are plenty of jams from right here at home, whether that means Nashville or somewhere else in the mainland U.S. We move beyond rock, as well, to give you some Americana, soul, pop, hip hop, and even some electronica!

It was only a few weeks ago that we delivered the news of A Night of Nashville Hip Hop II, the sequel to the blockbuster hip hop R&B showcase hosted by NashLive! last October at The Cobra.
Well, we have good news for you early birds: you can get your tickets for this one in advance!
You had to know there’d be a weather pun, with summer making its first appearance of 2022 in Tennessee this week.
It’s also accurate, because (as always), we have your flavor of total fire on this week’s UMC20. Things get off to a hot start and keep burning — from hip hop, to metal, to folk, and all stops in between.
You know what time it is. Let’s go!

Whether it’s Sunday Funday or Cinco de Mayo, Lord Goldie has bangers for every occasion.
Tee Walls, the Nashville-based hip hop artist and CEO of Wall to Wall Entertainment, continues to “Rise Up” as 2022 marches on.
Walls released a new music video for his single, “Rise Up.” Shot by videographer Adam Settle, the visuals feature Walls speaking his truth, while contemplating his own destiny as king of his domain.

A few weeks ago, we celebrated Sunday Funday with Lord Goldie, Foundation Mecca, and Chaun Davis of ViB. However, after the episode was when things got even more real.
Foundation and Goldie stuck around after the show, and we went extra deep on life, our relationships, and our own healing journeys — while the Zoom meeting was still recording the whole thing! The raw honesty and vulnerability is quite unlike anything we’ve ever presented here at The Quinn Spinn, and we wanted to make our truth available to you as a bonus episode!
We’re late to the party on our annual J-Timbs meme share. Sorry — it’s just been busy.
However, one thing that isn’t late is this week’s UMC20 playlist — and we’ve got ourselves some bangers. We also have some more tender moments. We run the genre gauntlet, and we even have a Mother’s Day tune from a “Swanky Ma.”
Make sure you call Mom this weekend — after you check out what we’ve got for you below!
