Some artists define a genre, but Lil Baby defines a generation. The GRAMMY Award-winning rapper has smashed records, made history, and impacted the course of modern hip-hop with his instantly identifiable and inimitable style. He has garnered dozens of multi platinum certifications and tens of billions of streams as arguably the biggest new rapper to emerge this decade. Following the success of his platinum full-length debut Harder Than Ever in 2018, he seized #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with 2020’s My Turn, becoming “the year’s #1 selling and #1 streaming album in the US.” At first, it cemented him as “2020’s first and only artist to go double-platinum,” but it has since gone quadruple-platinum and has logged 85 weeks in the top 10 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart – marking the longest top-tier run in the chart’s history.

 

He notably tied Prince and Paul McCartney for Billboard Hot 100 hits and Taylor Swift for “most weeks atop the Billboard Top 200 in 2020” with a total of 6. Out of eight nominations, he scored his first GRAMMY® Award in 2022. He has appeared on the covers of Rolling Stone and the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players Issue in addition to receiving honors from VEVO, Rap Caviar, the Apple Music Awards, and more. He teamed up with Lil Durk for The Voice of the Heroes, marking his second #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200. It’s just the beginning though. He’s bound to revolutionize the culture again with his third album in 2022. Most recently, he released “Right On” and “In A Minute” which both songs debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. This feat puts Lil Baby in rare territory, making him the youngest of only 12 artists to have ever landed 100 or more songs on the Hot 100. This generation belongs to Lil Baby.

UNESCO funds 7 projects to support artists in Ukraine

Published

featheroGettyImages 1239123510

UNESCO and the Ukrainian NGO Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) have come together to support 7 projects to encourage the continuation of artistic creation and access to cultural life in Ukraine.

 

Selected by MOCA, the projects will benefit from a total of US$ 100,000 in funding from the UNESCO Heritage Emergency Fund. The projects, which cover animation, open cultural space creation, audiovisual installation and exhibitions, aim to reconnect artists with their audiences during the war. 10 additional projects are currently under consideration for funding in the near future.

 

“Supporting artists and culture professionals today means supporting tomorrow’s societies. Culture is an essential public good for society, and access to cultural life is a basic universal human right. We must therefore support artists and recognize the essential role they play in our lives, in times of peace as in times of war,” said Ernesto Ottone R., UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Culture.

 

MOCA launched an online open call for projects entitled (re)connection UA on 11 August 2022. 93 applications were received. Ilya Zabolotnyi, the (re)connection UA project leader, notes: “The quantity of impressive and socially impactful projects exceeded our expectations. It revealed the scale of the support needed for sustainable development of cultural life in Ukraine”. “The financial, institutional, and advisory needs of Ukrainian creative teams during wartime are colossal”, adds Olga Balashova, Head of MOCA NGO.

 

“UNESCO’s support of Ukrainian cultural institutions is vital for preserving artistic expression as a basis for social cohesion, community resilience, and our common goal – fighting for freedom and democratic values,” noted Ms Halyna Hryhorenko, Deputy Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine.

 

The 7 projects to be implemented from now through the end of the year are part of UNESCO’s larger efforts in support of the culture sector in Ukraine.

 

The UN Organization has deployed numerous emergency measures since 24 February 2022 when Russian offensive against Ukraine began, and continues to identify the needs on the ground to support the cultural sector as much as possible, as well as the education sector and freedom of the press, in accordance with its mandate.

 

More information:

(re)connection UA is a pilot project implemented under the MOCA NGO with the support of UNESCO, funded by the UNESCO Heritage Emergency Fund. We wish to thank its donors: the Qatar Fund for Development, the Government of Canada, the Kingdom of Norway, the French Republic, the Principality of Monaco, ANA Holdings INC., the Republic of Estonia, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Slovak Republic, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the Principality of Andorra, and the Republic of Serbia.

 

Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is a non-governmental organization that unites representatives of artistic and expert communities who work with contemporary art in Ukraine and need a new type of museum institution to establish a full-fledged museum system and platform for expert dialogue. MOCA is a mediator between the professional community (which it coordinates) and governmental bodies. Moreover, MOCA provides the latter with advice on strategy and legal policymaking to implement a professional museum institution of contemporary art in Ukraine. MOCA has been focusing on projects that are particularly relevant during wartime and afterward, specifically the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund and Wartime Art Archive.
