About DJ Snake
DJ Snake is a French record producer, songwriter, and DJ. He made his full-length debut in 2016 with Encore, an album that reached #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. His sophomore album Carte Blanche in 2019, shot to #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart in the U.S.
‘Run It’ by DJ Snake is his first track for a major movie production and most likely won’t be his last. Some of his most famous tracks include ‘Let Me Love You’ (featuring Justin Bieber), ‘Lean On’ (with Major Lazer, featuring MØ), and ‘Taki Taki’ (featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B). Each one of them absolutely slapped, so we know ‘Run It’ will be joining that list of immaculate tunes!
About Rick Ross
Rick Ross is an American rapper, songwriter, and record executive. Since his debut with Port of Miami in 2006, he has released over ten albums and founded his own record label, Maybach Music Group. He has also built a business empire with 25 Wingstop locations, Chief Stix, COLLINS AVE with Cookies Cannabis Brand, among others. What can’t Rick Ross do?!
Rick Ross has promised to return sometime this year with his eleventh album called Richer Than I Ever Been. Are we calm? No we’re absolutely not, but thanks for asking!
About Rich Brian
Rich Brian is an Indonesian rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. In 2018, his debut studio album Amen had topped the hip-hop charts on iTunes–the first time an Asian musician had accomplished that feat. His second album The Sailor, released in 2019, has been streamed over 500 million times worldwide.
Rich Brian has since collaborated with many artists from China, South Korea, and the U.S., namely Jackson Wang, Chung Ha, 88rising, and now DJ Snake with ‘Run It.’ He has performed at many shows and festivals like Bonnaroo, Rolling Loud, and Coachella. Brian is set to headline the 2021 Head in the Clouds Festival in November.
Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings Synopsis

Chinese-Canadian actor Simu Liu stars as Shang-Chi, a master of Kung Fu who is forced to confront his long-forgotten past after he is drawn into the mysterious Ten Rings organization.
