Gender Amplified alumna Genesis Be, who was a performer at our 2013 music festival, recently shocked the world with her performance at S.O.B’s in NYC. In protest of Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant’s proclamation of April as Confederate Heritage Month, Be draped her body in the Confederate battle flag and hung a noose around her neck during her groundbreaking performance. The event was covered by Billboard Magazine. A link to the full interview is below.

Rapper Genesis Be Debuts ‘My GCK,’ Talks Confederate Flag Protest & Mississippi Pride: Exclusive Premiere

As a music producer, Genesis has a long history of using her art as a means of bringing forth social change. In response to her convictions, a number of news outlets have given Genesis a platform to further explain her mission to have the state of Mississippi officially retire the use of the Confederate battle flag in the design of the federally recognized state flag.

 

Genesis Be has something special. She is an artist of the future who has a politically charged message that aligns well with the social climate of today.

Gender Amplified – as a music platform – supports artists like Genesis Be, who use their work to inspire change in our world. Be is on her way, and our organization has been supporting her since the very beginning.

The best way to learn music production and engineering is to apprentice at the feet of the folks who are at the top of the record making business.

Over on the Atlantic Records website, I started a series to help aspiring producers and engineers learn from the best! These interviews with award-winning “masters of the mix” are full of insightful technical tips, career advice and much much more.
