Heavy Rotation with Westside Gunn

Friday, September 18th, 2015


Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

I listen to new shit every day, constantly checking for up-and-coming rappers, clicking on recommended links, watching videos and all that. And it’s rare that I discover a rap artist nowadays that really catches my interest. More often than not, they either got cookie-cutter styles or are just plain boring. No shots, just the truth. But that’s why when I hear a dude like Westside Gunn, I’m immediately drawn in.

The Buffalo spitter (who also now resides in Atlanta) has been on the underground rap scene getting his feet wet and building a rep for the past few years. But just recently, it seems like the co-signs have been rolling in heavily, and his music has started to circulate more and more. Action Bronson, Alchemist, Danny Brown, and Roc Marciano have all publicly acknowledged his dopeness. And Roc produced one of his latest Soundcloud releases, “Hall,” and yes, it’s fucking fire. If you like that gritty, concrete, hard body New York fly shit, Westside Gunn is the one right now. Trust.

Video: Vince Staples Interview on The All Purpose Show

Friday, September 18th, 2015

If you’re a fan of Vince, you already know his interviews are pretty much always entertaining and enlightening. Today we’re happy to share the full version of his sit-down with Prince Paul and DJ P.Forreal on the Scion AV All Purpose Show. After getting a lift from Eddie Huang, Staples chops it up with Paul about the melanin deficient nature of his audience and how that affects his message, working with No I.D., sources of inspiration and more. He also plays “fill in the blank” and explains why he would never record a song with Jay Z, what he’d be doing if he wasn’t rapping and his preffered jail hair style.

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Tip recently stopped by Ebro in the Morning to pump his new EP and shoot the shit and address a few other pressing issues that his name has been involved with. He speaks extensively about the Izzy Azaela Implosion and how his business relationship with her has suffered as a result.
