R&B songstress, K. Michelle, is set to release her new single on Death Row Records. The storied West Coast label, has taken her under their wing - even gifting her with an official hoodie, which she wore for a photo opp. “Guess who’s releasing a record on DEATHROW,” she wrote on Twitter. For Michelle, this marks a new chapter in her career as its been a ream of hers to release music through a label that once signed the legendary, Tupac Shakur.
“I used to wear my Tupac shirt my momma bought me and rap and sing! Do anything you want!”
If you recall, K. Michelle was previously signed to Atlantic Records; releasing four albums, with her recent being 2017’s “Kimberly: The People I Used to Know.” But for some time now, the label has removed her from the artist roster on their website.
A little about Death Row, if you’ve been out of the loop since the early 1990’s (insert eyeball here), the label was founded in 1991 by Suge Knight, Dr. Dre and the D.O.C. It became the home for Hip Hop royalty including Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and Nate Dogg.

It’s been nearly two years ago since Chris Brown released an album.
Not to fret, though, Team Breezy, because “Indigo” season is slowly approaching. As you know, the R&B superstar is slated to release his new album, “Indigo” soon. And we’ve been patiently waiting for details. Well, today, we got a few details on who the guest features are on the album. Taking to his Instagram Stories, Breezy posted a series of 3 Story posts revealing names such as: G-Eazy, Nicki Minaj, Tory Lanez, Tyga, H.E.R., Lil Wayne, Joyner Lucas, Gunna, and more.
The new album is set to be Breezy’s NINTH album which has been generating buzz since the release of singles such as “Undecided,” Wobble Up,” and “Back to Love.”
As we patiently await its release, we look back on a few of our favorite "iced out" looks from the R&B superstar.
Cuban link chains will never go out of style. Breezy dresses up his white tee with gold links and a crisp white hat to match. Need a more subtle look? Our 5mm 14K Gold Moon Cut Cuban Chain is the perfect alternative.
Complimenting the ink he has on his hands, Breezy dresses up his fingers with diamond studded rings and we're all for it! Check out the Gold Wide Eternity Band, or The Zealot Ring, if you want to pull this look off as well.
Everybody needs a pair of black shades - they're essential, especially for the upcoming Summer season. Breezy makes his pair standout with gold accents. You can block out the sun and haters with a pair of our Greek Key Shades or Gold Link Shades in Black as well.
French Montana revives his hit single, “No Stylist” featuring Drake with a new remix featuring none other than Quavo. The Migos rapper, of course, brings his boastful flow over the catchy production. The remix premiered this past weekend on a new episode of The Weeknd’s “Memento Mon” on Beats 1 Radio.
In light of the collaboration and remix, we spotlight each rapper's signature look when it comes to jewelry. No stylist needed.
French can always be seen with a couple gold chains around his neck. Here, paired with his all black 'fit, we can see an oversized Cuban link chain with a smaller one to match. You can never go wrong with bold accessories when you're sporting all black. Check out our 14K Gold 18mm Flooded Miami Cuban Curb Chain.
