index

Our prayers go out to the family of 2017  XXXTentacion, who was fatally shot this afternoon (June 18).

According to TMZ, the late rapper, born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was allegedly shopping for a motorcycle at Riva Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Fla. when a gunman approached him and began firing around 3:57 p.m. EST. At 5:40 p.m. EST he was pronounced dead.

Prior to the news of his death, XXXTentacion was admitted to a local hospital and had been listed as a level 1 trauma patient, with audio dispatch calling the incident “a possible drive-by.” Witnesses allege a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from the “Moonlight” rhymer’s vehicle at the time of the shooting.

Upon hearing the initial news of XXX getting shot, dozens of hip-hop artists and producers jumped on Twitter and Instagram to voice their heartbreak. Joey Bada$$, who’s featured on XXX’s No. 1-selling album, ?, almost immediately tweeted out “Praying for my brother X.” The two collaborators hinted at a joint project due out sometime this year.

After dealing with touchy allegations over the past year, XXXTentacion set out to do good by his home state. The Florida native was currently planning to launch his Helping Hand Foundation with his mother, and held a benefit concert for victims of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

Rest in peace, XXXTentacion.

[TECH NEWS] Instagram plans to launch Snapchat Discover-style video hub

instagram-stories-steal-snapchat

Instagram is preparing to unveil a home for longer-form video — a YouTube competitor and its take on Snapchat Discover. According to multiple sources, Instagram will offer a dedicated space featuring scripted shows, music videos and more in vertically oriented, full-screen, high-def 4K resolution. Instagram has been meeting with popular social media stars and content publishers to find out how their video channels elsewhere would work within its app. It’s also lining up launch partners for an announcement of the long-form video effort tentatively scheduled for June 20th.

The public shouldn’t expect Netflix Originals or HBO-level quality. This is not “InstaGame of Thrones.”  Instead, the feature is more focused on the kind of videos you see from YouTube creators. These often range from five to 15 minutes in length, shot with nice cameras and lighting but not some massive Hollywood movie production crew. Average users will be able to upload longer videos too, beyond the current 60-second limit.

Instagram intends to eventually let creators and publishers earn money off the longer videos, though it hasn’t finalized how accompanying ads like pre-rolls and mid-breaks or revenue splits would work. It is not paying creators up-front for shows like Facebook Watch, either. But the videos will each feature a swipe-up option to open a link, which creators can use to drive traffic to their websites, e-commerce stores or event ticketing. Thanks to Instagram’s 800 million-plus users, the video section could be a powerful marketing tool beyond generating cash for creators directly.

The long-form video section will spotlight a collection of popular videos, and provide a “continue watching” option since users might view long clips over the course of several sessions. Users will also see the long-form clips featured on authors’ profiles near the Stories Highlights bubbles. Creators won’t be able to shoot and post long-form videos, as the section will only allow pre-made video uploads.
