Complex Mag: ScHoolboy Q hit everyone with the quickness Tuesday, unveiling what appears to be the cover for his new album Blank Face, due July 8. The cover makes use of the notorious Jordan Crying Face meme, which—despite previous theories from none other than Ja Rule—earns Michael Jordan approximately $0.00 in meme royalties.
The 2015 REAL MIAMI PLAYERS BALL is starring SNOOP DOGG and hosted by BISHOP DON JUAN.
This video is one of the best clips I’ve seen on TV in ages! It’s freaking hilarious! LOL! KTVA’s Charlo Greene quits on live TV after revealing she was the founder of the Alaska Cannabis Club. The delivery was arguably inappropriate, but damn if she didn’t look free as a bird and happy as hell! I admire her for the balls it took to do that, and the response of the Anchorwoman was absolutely #Priceless .
“Common’s 10th album, Nobody’s Smiling, is a dark and stark portrait of the streets of his own Chi City. With emerging talent pitching in alongside the 42-year-old lyricist’s always sharp lyrics, Nobody’s Smiling is a sparkling release in what’s been a tepid year for rap releases (so far).” – Vibe
“As one of the biggest songs from Coldplay‘s new album, we’re not surprised to see a bunch of high profile remixes surfacing. However, AlunaGeorge have now come into the spotlight for their own take on the song, while adding in a signature sound we’ve become associated with from their debut album, Body Music. The release coincides with the duo supporting Coldplay at the Royal Albert Hall in London on July 1st/2nd.” – OnSmash
“Now in its third year, Seattle Symphony’s critically acclaimed Sonic Evolution project creates a bridge between the Symphony and Seattle’s storied reputation as launching pad for some of the most creative musicians on the popular music scene. Each year, in celebration of the past, present and future of our city’s musical legacy, Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony commission world-class composers to write orchestral world premieres inspired by bands and artists that launched from, or are related to, Seattle.
In addition to writing a brand new composition inspired by Seattle’s own Sir Mix-A-Lot, composer Gabriel Prokofiev also orchestrated two of the legendary rapper’s most famous hits for this year’s concert, including “Baby Got Back,” for which Sir Mix-A-Lot joined Ludovic Morlot and the Orchestra on stage at Benaroya Hall.”
Drake did an impressive job as host on Saturday Night Live and his Katt Williams’ impression was dead-on. Take a look at the video.
New music from Eminem and not too many rappers can claim the title of “Rap God”. Bottom line…This sh*t is amazing!
Yeah Yeah Yeah, I know. I’m a little late posting the video for ‘We Still In This Bitch”. It’s my chosen IPOD pick because that baseline is some sick sh*t!! B.o.B, T.I., and Juicy J delivers that deep Southern bass that kicks in hard against any speakers. T.I. and Juicy J still have it, they still have that fire! And B.o.B laced on the vocals is icing on the cake.
DJ Premier & Bumpy Knuckles speak to Out Da Box TV on the state of hip hop today and how radio helped kill NY hip hop. I found this interview on ClassicHipHop.tumblr. The amount of knowledge dropped here is immense. This is the top Youtube comment, “Good shit right here! I agree with these brothers 100%. Shit, funny thing is the best artist and producers are all over 35 and are still big in da game…And they just so happen to be the richest. (Hov, Em, Dre, Nas, Timbaland, 50, Puff, Ross, Kanye, Pharrell, Snoop, Andre 3000..etc.) they understand what quality hip hop is and that will never die! Like it or not, these cats still sell records, sell out shows and produce relevant records. Premo is still sought out by big budget artist as well. – DimeCultztv”
