Moneybagg Yo Joins FredRarrii For Flex-Heavy Jam, “Hellcat”

The Floria rap scene has experienced a sharp resurgence in recent years and FredRarrii is looking to be the next artist to put the state on the map. On Friday, he dropped his major label debut – a seven-track EP on Epic Records. While FredRarrii may still be in the early stages of breaking out of the underground, Perfect Timing boasts attractive features like DaBaby and Moneybagg Yo. The rest of the guests on the project are fellow Floridians, showing that FredRarrii is still firmly planted in the local.  His collaboration with Moneybagg Yo, “Hellcat”, is as boisterous as the other tracks on the EP. FredRarrii displays a talent for penning fun and catchy hooks, while Moneybagg displays a talent for penning highly-pornographic verses (presumably about h...

Tyla Yaweh Taps Wiz Khalifa & Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong For “High Right Now Remix” Video

It’s one thing to get a sample cleared, but it’s  a whole different vibe when you get the artist you sampled from to actually join you for the music video. That was the case for Tyla Yaweh when he was able to nab Billie Joe Armstrong of the iconic rock group Green Day for the remix to his Wiz Khalifa-assisted new single “High Right Now.” Similar to how SZA got the actual Drew Barrymore to appear in her music video for “Drew Barrymore,” Tyla successfully was able to convince Billie Joe to join him for a toke or two (or five!) as he laments about the joys of being lifted off that green while a sample of Green Day’s hit single “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams” plays as the instrumental. As an added bonus, not ...

TikTok Prepares Launch Of Music Streaming Service By Signing Deal With Indie Label

TikTok blew pu in 2019 and soon became the app of choice for Gen Z. The video-sharing social networking service does more than just connect the youth, though. Certain songs—or sounds—will trend on the app after enough users include them in their short-form content, which gives artists and their music some major exposure. It’s no surprise, then, that the app is capitalizing on this by launching a music streaming service called Russo. The platform will rival streaming giants like Spotify and Apple Music, and to prepare for its launch, TikTok has secured a licensing deal with Merlin to feature thousands of indie artists on their platform. “Independent artists and labels are such a crucial part of music creation and cons...

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill Get Into Heated Argument

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill came face to face during Grammy weekend and it didn’t go well. The former couple got into a heated argument at Maxfield in West Hollywood on Friday. TMZ obtained video of the shouting match, which took place in front of customers at the high-end retailer. “There’s 50 people outside. We’re good,” says Nicki, to which someone else responds, “There are 100 people outside.” It’s unclear who started the argument, but things quickly escalated. Nicki’s husband Kenneth Petty also got involved. “She ain’t talking to you no more. Can’t talk to me one-on-one,” says a voice that appears to be Petty. He calls Meek a “pussy ni**a” before Meek responds by calling him a “pussy n**a....

A.A.L. (Nicolas Jaar) announces two new songs featuring FKA Twigs, Lydia Lunch

Against All Logic, the pseudonym of composer and producer Nicolas Jaar, is releasing two new songs next week. “Illusions… of Shameless Abundance” will feature Lydia Lunchh, while Jaar teamed up with FKA twigs and Estado Unido for “Alucinao”. Both new tracks drop January 31st via Other People Records. Jaar last donned the A.A.L. moniker in 2018. For the LP 2012-2017, he wove richly textured dance music out of samples of funk and soul. Notably, he made it alone, as he has done for most of his work since Darkside, including the more abstract soundscapes of 2016’s Sirens. Since then, Nicolas Jaar contributed to The Weeknd’s My Dear Melancholy and co-produced FKA twigs’ latest album Magdalene. The fact that he’s working with diverse performe...

Jason Ross Releases Debut Album, 1000 Faces, via Ophelia Records

Jason Ross’ debut project has arrived on Ophelia Records. Jason Ross‘ hotly anticipated debut full length 1000 Faces has dropped on none other than Seven Lions‘ own Ophelia Records.  The offering has been a long-awaited one for the Anjunabeats family who have come to know Ross well. Since 2014, he has made regular appearances on the label – but never to release a full-length project.  Last year appeared to mark a flashpoint in his breakout as Ross released a series of high-profile singles. The most notable installment came alongside longtime collaborator Seven Lions as well as Emilie Brandt, and it went by the title “Known You Before.” The release of 1000 Faces sees the them taking another step together as it marks the first...

The Marvelous Variety of Straightforward Rap

Fans and critics will tell you that 2019 was a lousy year for consensus in rap. This usually means that big statement albums were few and modest examples of pop functionalism were many. The four albums reviewed below illustrate the genre’s diversity heading into a new decade. There’s not a mumbler or an Auto-Tuned crooner among them yet, marvelously, these practitioners of straightforward, unadorned rapping sound nothing like each other. DaBaby: Kirk (Interscope/Billion Dollar Baby) On his second 2019 album, DaBaby flaunts his talent for energetic precision. The past year’s biggest new rap star has invented a new minimalist style limited to fast, simple beats and giddy nonstop rapping. His specialty is speed. He favors bouncy, skeletal keyboard loops that propel instead of just cruising. A...

Machine Gun Kelly Blasts Eminem for Posting Meme

Machine Gun Kelly is back for more. The Cleveland rapper took to Twitter to take another shot at Eminem. In a since-deleted tweet, MGK insinuated that Em is desperate for relevancy after the Detroit rapper participated in the viral Dolly Parton Challenge, posting four profile photos for LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Tinder (or Grindr in Em’s case). Did I do this right? pic.twitter.com/ZkoV5T4yxB — Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) January 24, 2020 After seeing the meme, MGK called out his 47-year-old rival. “50 year old artists tryna be relevant to the youth by posting trending meme’s is something i never thought i’d see #2020,” he wrote. MGK responds Eminem’s meme then deletes the tweet pic.twitter.com/FjSflsddwL — BLACK SHOTA RUSTAVELI (@Breakingers) Jan...
