Blackout Top News

Pharrell’s run in 2014 was something incredible. Although he’s most known for working with other artists, his solo career skyrocketed thanks to the smash hit “Happy.” So how is he following that up in 2015? He’s back to the studio with some other greats again.

Most recently, he’s finished up the collaboration album with Snoop Dogg titled BUSH and helped for the soundtrack to The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water film.

While visiting Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show last night, Pharrell revealed some of the artists he’s working with currently, mentioning the likes of Maxine Ashley and Cris Cab, as well as Snoop. But more excitingly, he told Jimmy he has work on deck with the talented Missy Elliott, who had her own coming out party earlier this year when she surprised fans at the Super Bowl Halftime Show to rock the stage with Katy Perry. It was enough to land her songs in the iTunes Top 10 that week.

Whenever it is that we’ll get to hear the records they’re working on, you can guarantee they will be big.

In the second installment of Food Inspired by the Album. . . . Mr. Wonderful, Action Bronson visits an old friend: Chef Michael White at Marea. To start things up, Action plays his new tracks “Terry,” “Baby Blue,” and “Falconry” for Chef White to get him in the right state of mind before they take to the kitchen. While Bronson has been previously documented dining at Marea, he had yet to step behind the line and actually cook with the chef in the restaurant until now. Action also offers his first public foray into the world of wine pairings, asking Marea’s wine director—Francesco Grosso—to choose the wines that would pair up best with dishes that he and Michael prepared. This episode will satisfy the cravings of gourmands and hip-hop aficionados alike.

Kendrick Lamar drops a brand new music video for King Kunta off his latest album To Pimp A Butterfly.
This slick, DJ Quik produced track is definitely a banger and now has a proper old school west coast vibe to it. Just right.


Kendrick Lamar has been on a very busy press run in support of his recent album To Pimp A Butterfly and it seems that in every interview he does, he gifts us all with yet another revelation. Most recently, during an interview with MTV, he revealed the album’s original title and explained the deeper meaning behind some of the songs.

In one of his latest interviews with Los Angeles radio station Power 106, Kendrick began discussing songs that just didn’t make the cut. Around the 9:30 mark, he began to rap a verse from one of the songs that got cut. He explained that the rest of the song included things that he just needed to say for himself, which is why he didn’t want to put it out.

Watch the full interview above.
