Leon Bridges breaks down the lyrics to his song “Lisa Sawyer,” off his upcoming debut album Coming Home via Columbia Records.
For those that are unaware the name of Future’s 56 Nights stems from Strugs’ DJ Esco, and the 56 days he spent locked up in a Dubai jail after getting arrested at the city’s airport for marijuana possession. He and Futche now reenact those harrowing experience (jail is one thing, but international jail? I can’t even imagine that.) in the video for that mixtape’s title track, which you can check out above.
Meanwhile, Future’s next project – a collaborative effort with Mike WiLL Made It, Ape Sh!t – should be dropping soon.
Murs‘s latest drop, featuring Los Angeles’ King Fantastic. Beat by Jesse Shatkin. Have A Nice Life, Murs’s upcoming album, is out May 18. Stream Two Step below.

New single from our new album titled “YES” featuring BJ “The Chicago Kid” and Illa J.
“YES” will be released June 16, 2015
Last week, Vince Staples released a new Future and Snoh Aalegra-featured single titled “Señorita” and today, the Long Beach rapper released its accompanying video. Directed by Ian Pons Jewel, the visual is set in a post-apocalyptic suburb and does not feature a Future cameo, but instead, a tattooed man lip-syncing his hook. Shot in black-and-white, it depicts a chaotic world where being killed by gunfire is common (perhaps as a reflection of certain turmoils in today’s society). Look out for Vince Staples’ album Summertime ’06 on June 30 and watch the video above.
A$AP Rocky shared the album art for his upcoming sophomore full-length At.Long.Last.A$AP this morning on Instagram ahead of the album’s June 2 release date.
The cover features an image of the late A$AP Yams’ face (identifiable via his distinctive birthmark and cross tattoo) superimposed over Rocky’s own, his ring-laden hands clutching both(?) faces and his trademark braids barely visible in the background.
UPDATE: There is also an alternate cover for A.L.L.A. which you can check out below.
Četvrtak 7.5. u Vintage Baru, u organizaciji Good Vibrations ekipe, svjedočili smo sjajnoj premjeri General Woo-a i Funkstera, doživili istinsku Hip Hop atmosferu i vidjeli velik broj novih lica.
Generalov repertoar je bio poduži, ispunjen hitovima nostalgičnih 90ih, do svježih traka s novih albuma, izvedeni na potpuno drugačiji način nego kako smo navikli kad je samo DJ iza MC-a na pozornici.
Kao predgrupe su nastupali redom grupe iz Dubrave, Krv Istoke RTC i 40 Industry, dok su kao gosti za vrijeme Woo-ovog nastupa na stage došli Toxara, Sunny Sun i Bolest. Pendrek je čitav nastup sjajno pratio, nebih rekao kao bek vokal, već kao čovjek koji je sam za sebe pojava, sjajno komunicira s publikom i k tome ima sjajan skill kao MC. Dodao bi da su i Funksteri predvođeni Mr Dirty Hairy-jem bili čvrsti, imali groove-a i doista napravili dodatnu razliku da bi ovaj koncert bio na višem nivou. Pa krenimo s reportažom od početka same večeri.
From now on, refer to Yeezy as Dr. Kanye West!
Kanye – musician, fashionista, grandiose public speaker – joined the ranks of Jeff Koons, Marina Abramovic, and Yoko Ono, as the School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago bestowed upon him an honorary doctorate in fine arts today (May 11th). After performing at the rather epic Bulls-Cavaliers game the day prior, Kanye attended the school’s commencement program to receive his degree, and also gave a brief speech in which he vowed to “make our lives better,” joked about George W. Bush, and more. Watch it in its entirety below.
Check out Ye’s speech after the jump.
