YG kovers FADER‘s new Now issue. The cover story, penned by Matthew Trammell, covers his tumultuous early years banging on the streets of Compton as a Tree Top Piru Blood, the incident during which he was shot 3 times last Summer, the direction of his DJ Mustard-less new album and his aspirations to appear on the big screen. That sick cover image was shot by Chuck Grant.

RAST – Song For Chicago (Safe Tonight)

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015


RAST is no stranger to gang violence and the misery it perpetuates among hopeless youth in hoods across America. But he’ll also tell you that the kids he grew up banging with are some of his closest brothers and his greatest support system to this day. Once you make the decision (or once it’s made for you) to go all in with that life, you know you’re putting yourself and those around you in the line of fire. But this shit right here goes against every g-code I’ve ever learned. On “SOng For Chicago” RAST dedicates one to the birthplace of gangs, the city of Chicago.

Goodbye Tomorrow – eXplosions

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015


Goodbye Tomorrow share the follow up to their last release, “2 MANY,” with “eXplosions:

“”eXplosions is kind of like that same frustration level as 2 MANY…but refocused into a different frequency.The end of ’2 MANY’ says “fuck you, your perspective is irrelevant, you’ll never take me out my element,” and this is that attitude but refined. It’s less outward and more inward, more about immediacy. Still mad as fuck but more audacious.”

The mysterious Chicago collective will make their live debut with three upcoming shows in Los Angeles, New York and and Chicago throughout December, more info and tickets available here. Stream the debut album, A Journey Through the Mind of a Non Believer, here.

Pusha T’s New Album Drops December 18th

Monday, November 23rd, 2015


In an interview with Hot 97 the week “Untouchable” dropped, Pusha T confirmed that his new album would arrive before the end of the year. Earlier today I noticed that this article over at VICE mentioned that the album, called Darkest Before Dawn, is actually the first of two albums he has on deck. In a new interview with Noisey, he confirmed that Darkest Before Dawn will arrive on December 18th, with King Push following this Spring. The ongoing bar-deficiency epidemic in Rap has been dealt another blow.

Watch the video for “Untouchable” here.

Pusha will also be releasing a short film to accompany the album. Check out a Kid Art directed teaser below. A press release that went out Wednesday listed several guests that will appear on the project:

DARKEST BEFORE DAWN will feature collaborations with Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Jill Scott, Kehlani, The-Dream, and Beanie Sigel, with production by Timbaland, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Hudson Mohawke and Diddy.
