Lockdown restraints are slowly being lifted throughout the country, but going to a crowded show at a music venue may still be a ways away.
That said, thankfully the spirit of live music can be brought home—and that’s exactly what we’ve been doing as part of our ‘Lockdown Live’ series, curated in partnership with Martell, by spotlighting some of the country’s most exciting musicians. Next up is talented LA-based rapper, Chris Scholar, who’ll be playing to a live audience on Thursday, June 11.
Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Scholar was first introduced to the music industry when at only 18 Jermaine Dupri featured one of Scholar’s videos on his blog. Now that he’s pursuing his music career full-time, Scholar has grown to be a multi-talented creative as a singer, rapper, writer, dancer, video director and editor. He’s worked with artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Trippie Redd, Lil Xan, French Montana, and Tank, among various others.
Scholar’s been a featured artist on Revolt TV, co-wrote 2 Chainz “Rule The World” (which featured Ariana Grande) and Chris Brown’s “Sorry Enough”. But now you can listen to his words for yourself when he takes over our Instagram live feed at 8pm on Thursday (June 11).
Each week on Lockdown Live, talented local creatives take over our Instagram live feed, bringing you beautiful music or teaching you something new in the kitchen. On Friday, May 29, R&B singer Dylan Reese took over Secret NYC’s Instagram for a live gig showcasing some of his new music—and we can’t wait to show you what else we have in store.
You can catch up on past Lockdown Live performances over on @martellofficial’s IGTV.
