Electus Digital Announces Return of CRWN to WatchLOUD.com with Three New Episodes

Monday, August 25, 2014 - 02:45

NEW YORK, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Electus Digital announced today that live interview series CRWN will return to WatchLOUD.com, beginning this week. Produced by WatchLOUD together with Shady Films and NUE Agency, CRWN pairs the biggest names in hip-hop with long-time music journalist Elliott Wilson for an intimate conversation conducted in front of a live audience. CRWN will kick off on Tuesday, August 26th as Wilson interviews renowned hip-hop producer DJ Mustard at a live event at Linwood Dunn Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

WatchLOUD debuted the inaugural episode of CRWN with Elliott Wilson in April 2013, and the episode filming this week will mark the LA debut of the program. A Los Angeles native, DJ Mustard has quickly become one of the most sought-after producers in the business and just released his debut album, 10 Summers. Wilson's conversation with DJ Mustard will be the first of three new CRWN episodes to be presented by vitaminwater® as part of their sponsorship of WatchLOUD.com. This relationship is part of the vitaminwater® quest to "hydrate the hustle" of consumers who work hard to make their dreams a reality, and the inspiring stories shared by the CRWN artists portray just that.

"We're excited for the launch of these new episodes of CRWN on WatchLOUD and that our own hustle is being hydrated by vitaminwater®," says Mike Mobley, Vice President of Media Sales for Electus Digital. "The value of hard work at the heart of both brands is embodied by all of the artists featured in the series, and Elliott's ability to delve into the creative process of hip-hop's major players helps uncover how they made their dreams and ambitions a reality. "

Part 1 of the CRWN interview with DJ Mustard will be available exclusively on WatchLOUD.com on Thursday (8/28) with Part 2 to follow on Friday (8/29). WatchLOUD will also release special content on each new CRWN subject that shows how their hard work has brought them to where they are today.
