Iconic rap group Run-DMC will receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award when the ceremony airs next month. The group, which consists of Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels and the late Jason “Jam Master J ” Mizell, will join a list of honorees that includes R&B legend Ruth Brown, Latin legend Celia Cruz, counter culture legends Jefferson Airplane and jazz legend Herbie Hancock. Rev. Run tweeted that it was an honor and thanked the academy for the award. Rapper Young Jeezy unveiled the visual for his new single “Sweet Life” on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The black and white clip, directed by Matt Barnes, shows the Atlanta MC hustling through his own struggles as images of police officers arresting a young black man play out. The clip also features R&B songstress Janelle Monae. Jeezy stated that he wanted to show what happens to African Americans daily. He also shared his thoughts on the Academy Awards controversy by tweeting that African Americans should be concerned about what’s going on in Chicago and Flint instead. “Sweet Life” appears on his upcoming album “Church In These Streets”. Chicago based singer and poet Jamila Woods, whose appearance on Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment’s single “Sunday Candy” brought her voice to prominence, has signed a recording deal with independent Chicago based label Closed Sessions. “Blk Girl Solider” will be the first single from the upcoming project, which will be released this spring. Produced by Jus Cuz, the track is driving, soulful and shines a light on issues facing African American women, which Woods says was therapeutic to write.
