Cole comments on current relationship with Jay-Z, how he balances his older fan base with his new pop fans, and broke down stories behind a few of the highlight records from his Cole World: The Sideline Story album.
Back in July when I released Leap Year, I let the fans decide which videos they wanted to see off the project. Overwhelmingly, people wanted to see visuals for the song “James Franco”. We went all the way to Hollywood to shoot this in an effort to find the man behind the song…turns out he wasn’t too hard to find. -Hoodie
Hands down the best track on the mixtape. No wonder it gets the visual treatment.
After headlining a show in Miami Sunday night with partner in crime Chuck Inglish, the newest member of Jet Life, Mikey Rocks discusses his brand new deal with Curren$y’s label, how him & Spitta linked up, his decision to sign with the label, possibly joining The Smokers Club Tour, and more. Mikey also says we’ll probably get a collaboration project for him & Curren$y soon.
If The Roots were more innovative and creative they would use this entire photo as the artwork. When have we ever seen an iTunes artwork on a laptop as the entire cover art? When my self-produced, untitled EP drops in 2040, that’s what I’m going to do.
“I’m trying to make the crossover into mainstream, I’m sick of the fuckin’ underground.”-Yelawolf
Strong words from a guy who will never make it in the mainstream world. His image needs to be cleaned up and his sound needs to be refined. Whenever we see underground artists (who don’t have the mainstream blueprint) try to cross over they usually fail. Radioactive may only steer Yela in the wrong direction. Anyways, he returned to the East Coast last night and held a NYC listening for his debut LP Radioactive which drops November 21st.
Now that the buzz from his debut album is dying down, it’ll be interesting to see what Cole has in store for us in the coming days. Cole eerily resembles Nas in this video. Second coming? Yeah, you could say that.
Dominating the game as an independent artist, Tech feels like he owes to his fans. For his new viral, he does just that by giving us a visual recap from the past few years from music to live performances. Nothing like seeing Tech live, not even, well I’ll leave it at that.
Machine Gun Kelly made his first visit with The Breakfast Club on NY’s Power 1o5. He spoke on his relationship with Diddy and says he can come up victorious between a rap battle with Jay Electronica.
I often wonder how artists like Nipsey Hu$$le can maintain a decent standard of living without any success at all. Regardless, he’s still on his grind. TMC drops November 1st.
It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything new on the music front from Ludacris. Here’s the first leak off his upcoming mixtape, 1.21 Gigawatts: Back To The First Time.
