Drake finished his album Take Care and he handed it in, it will be dropping on November 15th. DHH just dropped this track off of Take Care
Lil Wayne is on this one and looks like this album is definitely living up to its hype.
Note: That this is not the finished version. We’ll leave it up until the finished version drops.
So I was listening back to Avicii’s great set @ Studio 54 last night and when Avicii played ‘Fade Into Darkness’, I realized he dropped the Albin Myers Remix. And I immediately fell in love with it and noticed that I never got to posting this full remix 2 weeks ago. Give this track a listen, the drop is beautifully and I actually enjoyed this one more then the original.
Today is a good day, I got new songs from two of my favorite rappers(Immortal Technique and Lupe Fiasco). I’ve been waiting for this collaboration since the Bass Island concert at Governors Island this summer, where Lupe opened for Bassnectar. I saw videos of them performing a track together and heard rumors of a possible collaboration and I’m pretty happy that it is finally out. Lupe did well rapping over this great dubstep remix of Ellie Goulding’s popular track ‘Lights’. ’LightWork’ is Lu’s first track off of Friend Of The People (Lupe’s upcoming mixtape) that will be dropping on Thanksgiving. Lupe is back.
I haven’t heard any new Immortal Technique in a minute and this is dope. ’Toast To The Dead’ is the first leak off of Technique’s upcoming free project called The Martyr. The Martyr will include features by Styles P, Joell Ortiz, Brother Ali and many more. Immortal Technique will always be one of my favorite underground rappers, I may not agree with all of his views, but I can’t deny that he has talent. One of my favorite rappers.
Last night Odd Future brought the GOLF WANG TOUR to Terminal 5 in NYC. Stavros and Hummel were lucky enough to attend this show and get some shaky footage haha. Although I wasn’t able to go, I heard it was a crazy show and OF always performs with so much energy, making every performance great. You may not love their music, but these guys know how to put on a fun show. One recommendation from Stav and Stefan was rather than staying in the mosh pit (which basically was the whole floor), go to the balcony where you can of enjoy the night safely without having to deal with 16 years olds, pushing and wanting to start fights. Hit the jump to see some good and bad footage from the show! OFWGKTA
