Is It Time For A Check Up?
Dust and heat are your Orange Door Music Video systems worst enemy. Please take the time to check that your system is dust free and in a cool airy position. In most cases a visual examination will do.
You can keep the system as cool as possible by ensuring it is positioned in an airy, clean, dry place. Cupboards are a “no no” because they don’t allow air flow (heat builds up).
If you suspect your system needs cleaning, call your A/V or IT technician to give it a vaccum (or blow out). To keep your system in good working order and to avoid any possible disruption we recommend doing this at least once a year.
Give us a call about any of these things if you need any advice.
Jay-Z And Fat Joe Help Puerto Rico
Fat Joe and Jay-Z may have been real life rivals in the past, but they’ve long since buried the hatchet and now the rap legends are teaming up for a greater cause as they’ve combined to collect supplies to deliver to Puerto Rico and Mexico to aid the relief and recovery from the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria. Fat Joe discussed their joint effort with CNN, where he revealed that with the help of the city of New York, the duo has collected two million pounds of supplies to send to each country.
Cardi B Makes History (Again)
Last month, Cardi B made history when her smash single “Bodak Yellow” hit number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Now, three weeks later, she’s made history again, breaking the record for the longest-running No. 1 single by a solo female rapper, ever.
Per Billboard, “Bodak Yellow” has beaten the record Lauryn Hill set in 1998, when “Doo Wop (That Thing)” held the top spot for two weeks. That’s an admittedly low bar — and one that says a lot about the “boys club” nature of hip-hop — but it’s at least a step forward.
