OG DAYV Returns To The Spotlight With New Visual “Lazy Susan”

Published

By

OG DAYV is back at it with a new single plus striking visuals for his new track “Lazy Susan.” The Bay Area rising star teams up with The Dakota Wytefoxx for the multifaceted song, making it OG DAYV’s first release of the new year, and he’s coming in with a bang.

After basking in the success of his recent noteworthy collaboration with Future on Limoncello as part of the official soundtrack for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Marvel film, OG DAYV is stepping back into the limelight.

Produced by Ben 10K and Danes Blood, “Lazy Susan” is a track that quite literally revolves around the concept of doing things effortlessly. If you’re not familiar with what a “Lazy Susan” is, it’s a common household product that’s basically a turntable (rotating tray) placed on a table or countertop to aid in distributing food. OG Dayv took the meaning of this and turned it into a creative rendition of a song.

“To me ‘Lazy Susan’ means effortless and easy,” OG DAYV says in an interview. “Performing a task and making it look simple. The design idea behind a Lazy Susan is brilliant and I use one everyday, so I said lemme take this inspiration and turn it into something clean. Dakota and I make this rap shit look exceptionally easy … lazy susan.”

Letting loose at the end of the video, the two rap stars reveal their goofy side by showcasing kooky dance moves, par for the course that ‘lazy susans’ were once referred to as ‘dumbwaiters.’ OG DAYV emulates Thomas Jeffereson’s self-service gadget to ease his sloth of kitchen duties. 

“I wanted some crazy visuals to accompany the crazy track,” OG DAYV says. “Mikey is an outstanding director and my team knew he could capture a crazy concept. We needed something visually stunning but also inspirational and in the pocket. Are you even a rapper if you don’t have the brand new Beamer with an 0 on the mileage? Kidding but only half way, the video is crazy and it aligns with what I wanted to accomplish. Doin difficult s**t and making it look effortless.”

The visual and song itself is already gaining some traction and catching the attention of heavy-hitters. Check it out below:

KilahNailedThat Interview: Beginnings, Working w/ Cardi B, What’s Next + More

Published

on

By

With the rise of social media, came the change of our status quo. Platforms like Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and others are essential in today’s world for practically any business to succeed, no matter how big or small. Additionally, as social media grew in popularity, so did the number of young, independent business people in a variety of industries, such as music, fashion, art, cosmetics, you name it.

Having said that, today we’re here to highlight Akilah Milan, a growing, young CEO in the field of nail technicians. She is currently based in Brooklyn, New York, with her own office for her brand, KilahNailedThat, that she launched in April 2021. Since then she has been flourishing tremendously.

Below is an exclusive 4shoMagazine interview with Akilah; she speaks on her beginnings, choosing the career path as a nail tech, working with Cardi B, and where she sees herself in ten years.

Check it out in full below! Then I suggest you ladies reading, to book your next appointment with Akilah — and as for you guys– you now know where to take wifey for her nails!

What made you pursue the nail technician industry, aside from say, hair, etc.?

Akilah: “It dates back all the way to my childhood. My fondest memories as a kid was the time I spent at the nail spa with my mother. I was instantly so fascinated with the nail art. So much so, my grandmother bought me a set of pedicure tools one Christmas and it was everything for me. I was painting everyone’s nails .. even my father’s [haha].

I also always gravitated towards art, so from high school on, my life was filled with a lot of drawing and painting. So looking back, I was always preparing myself for a career as a nail technician in some way.

When did you start to realize this was the right career path for you?

Akilah: “The pandemic for sure. Ironically enough, it really helped me launch my career. As all non-essential businesses, including nail salons, were shut down and with more time on my hands, I began watching Instagram reels and YouTube videos. My first thought was that I could do this. Then I made a list of all the supplies I’d need and ordered them from Amazon. I began practicing on myself and close family members. I came a long way from my first set [haha].

“Although I was really bad at first, I continued practicing and with time I improved greatly. My passion for nails brings me a sense of calm and peace, which is why I decided to launch my own brand instead of continuing to work at Wing Stop and Primark. I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, even though I was a little apprehensive at first.”

You have definitely come a long way! You recently worked with Cardi B. How did it feel?

Akilah: “Working with Cardi B was such a blessing. It is an opportunity that I will forever be grateful [for]. I appreciate Cardi B for giving an upcoming Nail Tech like myself the chance to shine. This experience showed me that I should always be true to myself and never give up on myself, even when others doubted me and my talent. Cardi was so fun to be around, and being called back for a second time was the icing on the cake.”

Where do you see KilahNailedThat in 10 years?

Akilah: “I’m setting very high standards for myself. I expect to be a high-profile, celebrity nail tech.. and a [very] successful business owner. To the point where I expand to [at least] five full-service luxury nail salons. I also want to teach what I know so by then I will have obtained my state accreditation. Aside from training, I also want to provide employment [of course] as well as start-up capital for those who want to start their own business.”
