Ever since our last CRWN event with Mac Miller I have been getting email, tweets, and snapchats about when is the next one.

Soon! Soon! I’ve been telling everyone. Finally soon is here. Nue Agency is excited to announce that CRWN, the hottest hip hop web show is returning next week with the most relevant music tech star in Snapchat history DJ Khaled on April 19th.

That’s right. The man who took Snapchat to a whole new level through his innovative content, entertaining wit, and always on point keys will be sitting down with Elliott Wilson and discussing all of the elements that make DJ Khaled one of the most in demand new media celebrities on the planet.

Tickets go on sale at noon

These events take a lot of work so I would like to give a big shout out to Clive Davis department of recorded music, Roc Nation, Shady Films and the king of hip hop social media Elliott Wilson and our exciting new partner MtV2. I promise this will be a one of a kind music interview experience. See you there.
