DJ Muggs recently dropped Soul Assassins: Dia del Asesinato, his first solo collection since 2013, and the album’s standout track is “Assassination Day” featuring MF Doom and Kool G Rap. Muggs released the visuals for the record on Friday and it portrays Kanye West getting gunned down.

The highly contrasting visual opens to the tune of a dismal guitar circle, with the shooter loading his rifle into a “Leon’s Cleaning Service” van and heading to his post. En route, he watches police abusing a cuffed Black man and protestors holding up a sign that reads, “Slavery Was A Choice” before, at last, pulling the trigger at a presidential crusade rally. Yeezy takes a shot to the head, meanwhile, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin are seen cracking up on the television screens.

Lyrics clear the pipes like Drano/Witness pure hate like spit goin’ over Raimo/A good response would be to wave ‘hi’ like Maino/Or it could be whatever dog—Bingo was his name-o,” Doom raps.

Aside from the Kanye cameo, Muggs tapped New York legends and upstarts alike for his most recent full-length including, Raekwon, Mayhem Lauren, Mach-Hommy, Hus Kingpin, Eto and Freddie Gibbs appear alongside Doom and Kool G.

You can watch Muggs’ “Assassination Day” video below.

After her two-song performance, we were spiritually enhanced by how her words and the melody of the band played throughout the performance. That my friend is called an experience. Peep the concert and see how creative she takes you spiritually and mentally.

Tyler the Creator has revealed the roster for the 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival. The headliners will include KIDS SEE GHOST, the collaborative project by Kanye West and Kid Cudi. The “carnival” performance will be the first time that the duo will perform live under the moniker.

There’s no telling what Kanye West has up his sleeve, but we can only hope that he actually shows up because he’s known for last minute pull outs. For instance, he canceled his third Carpool Karaoke taping as soon as James Corden arrived at his door. His rep said that he just wasn’t in it.

Other Flog Gnaw acts will include Tyler the Creator himself, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Jorja Smith, Jaden Smith, Pusha-T, A$AP Rocky, Post Malone and Earl Sweatshirt. The seventh annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival will take place at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium grounds on November 10 and 11. Tickets go on sale on Friday, August 17 at noon.

Be sure to check out the full lineup posted to Tyler’s IG below!

on sale friday; noon

Although Drake and Pusha T seemed to move passed the beef, the public won’t let it go. During the Chicago stop of his DAYTONA tour, the “Infrared” rapper was greeting by a group of enthusiastic fans chanting “f–k Drake,” and apparently he didn’t mind.

“Now that we got that off,” he said after a brief pause to cheers from the audience. “I got this album called Daytona,” he continued. “Rap album of the motherfucking year.”

In case you’re not up to speed with the latest Hip Hop news, Pusha T fans were dissing the 6 God because they began beefing in May when he released his latest project, DAYTONA and took shot aimed at Drizzy in the last track, “Infrared.”

Drake responded with a lukewarm response, “Duppy Freestyle,” basically invalidating Pusha’s 20-year career. But Push annihilated him with his final response, “The Story of Adonis,” which had Drake dressed in blackface in the cover art and unveiled his secret child with a stripper.

In addition to announcing her latest venture, Nicki also gave fans a snippet of new music as she “tested out her speakers” ahead of the radio takeover.

”Testing out some new speakers in my guest house studio, who’s coming over? 🏠 🏡 🤧🙈 Who’s tuning into #QueenRadio @applemusic tmrw night? Let’s just say you won’t wanna miss it. 😝 History making tingz ah gwarn. ♥‼🎁🎈

My darlings!!! I have a huge surprise that I can’t share until the day before #Queen drops. So in the meantime, check out this playlist I made for you guys. I did #FEFE with my new BFF from BROOKLYN. He’s a little funny looking but he’s really sweet under all those tats. 😩 New York til da DEF!!!! Ha! Last time I teamed up with YG was for his remix to “My Hitta.” We recently performed #BigBank at the BET Awards and had a blast wit my dudes Big Sean and 2 Chainz. I have classic bops with all 3 of them so I’m including them on this list. I’m super excited about my recent collaboration with Ariana Grande. She’s one of the realest artists I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She couldn’t fly with me to Turks to shoot the #BedVideo so we shot her scenes in Malibu. We’re actually working on edit number 2 for the #BedVideo to include all the fun stuff we had to remove. I love “Ball For Me” with Post Malone. Not sure why he won’t release the video. 🗣 It’s DOPE!!! 😜 I hope you enjoy my playlist. Can’t wait for you guys to hear my 4th album QUEEN ON AUGUST 17!!!!!!!”

Travis Scott had the most perfect muse for the release of his music video, “Stop Trying to Be God,” off his latest discharge, Astroworld. Kylie Jenner makes an appearance in her beau’s visual which dropped Monday.

The striking music video makes a few scriptural references, and even highlights the beauty mogul as a modern Virgin Mary. In one scene, the 20-year-old reality star sparkles in a luminescent gold shading as she’s seen keeping an eye on Scott after he’s lit ablaze. The last scene likewise stars Kylie, who wears a sequined outfit while holding a sheep in a trough.

Kylie is noticeably featured on her baby’s father third studio album, with 26-year-old Scott making a few references to their relationship and their half-year-old little girl, Stormi Webster.

On “Stargazing,” Travis credits Kylie for saving his life, rapping, “I was always high up on the lean / Then this girl came here to save my life / Look up to the sky, down on my knees / Out of nowhere, you came here to stay the night.”

Last Friday, the couple celebrated the arrival of Astroworld by going to the famous Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago. “You didn’t have to go this hard baby,” she gushed on Instagram. “Astroworld just dropped and it’s the craziest ride of my life.”

Indeed, even child Stormi is Astroworld-ready, sporting her dad’s merchandise. “Come home my baby ready to rock and roll,” he captioned a black and white snapshot of his little girl dressed in a onesie.

Come home my baby ready to rock and roll. !!!!

Mala Luna’s lineup additionally includes Rich The Kid, Lil Baby, Gunna, Shoreline Mafia, Rico Nasty, Tierra Whack and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Tickets are on special now at the festival’s site. A portion of the proceeds will be given to the after-school music not-for-profit Network for Young Artists.

Back in March, Jhene Aiko released her Slauson Hills edition of Never Call Me featuring Kurupt. The Never Call Me video has garnered over 18 million views and it features the majority of Los Angeles natives who are dominating the entertainment industry including Nipsey Hussle, Lauren London, Dom Kennedy, and Jhene’s sister, Mila J.

Now more than five months later, and two days before the release of YG’s third studio album, Stay Dangerous, Jhene has released an official remix to Never Call Me featuring her labelmate YG. YG adds his gangsta persona to the track as he raps about how there’s nothing he won’t do for Jhene no matter how dangerous or outrageous.

Continuing the trend of her original release of the song, Jhene took to Instagram to announce the remix’s release by posting hometown staples such as Tam’s Burgers and the Slauson Supermall. Jhene uses a picture of her hometown neighborhood cross streets, Rosekrans and Slauson Ave, as the cover art for the Never Call Me Remix.

Just in case you were tired of hearing Drake’s “In My Feelings” be prepared to hear it even more now because the video dropped and it’s perfect.

As suspected, the video is directed by Karena Evans. The video stars LaLa Anthony as the infamous, Kiki; Phylicia Rashad as Kiki’s over protective mother; and Shiggy as a loudmouthed Production Assistant.

The flick kicks off with Drake standing outside of Kiki’s professing his love for her and inviting her to his party. As he begins gaining ground, Kiki’s mom shows up and sends Drake on his way. From that point, we see the 6 God cruising through New Orleans, where the “In My Feelings” challenge blew up.

Towards the end of the video, Drake gets up in his creation trailer, where he unveils that it was just a dream. “I just had some dream that I made some song about some girl,” he explains. “I was from New Orleans, grill in my mouth. And then this kid from New York that spits when he talks all the time did some dance to it. And then the world did the dance, and Will Smith was there. Nobody would stop. It was terrible.”

It has been over a year since 2 Chainz has released his Pretty Girls Like Trap album. His new album, Rap or Go To The League, could be finished. The Atlanta rapper previewed his new song off of his new album which is called “Ex Drug Dealer” during the MLS All-Star performance that he was headlined in Atlanta Sunday night. The track was produced by Mike WiLL Made It that has an octane production with the star’s adlibs and lyricism. “Had a half a ticket before I met with Def Jam/Ask Chris and 20 who was the X man/No Wolverine here/Collecting hundred dollar bills like a souvenir,” he spits over the thumping 808s.

The album’s name means his past dealing after prospecting college basketball that is the same in the rap game. He also has a single with Drake and Migos called “Bigger Than You,” which is already out. There is no telling when the next banger will be and we can’t wait until this album out from the College Park rapper.  Peep a small clip of the preview of his new song.

There’s truly nothing like a Summer in New York City. The weather is hot and humid, the smell of garbage taints the air, and rats swerve through the pavements. The days are brutal, but the nights are rewarding and full of life.

Last night (July 29) The LOX, Young M.A., and DJ Funk Flex took the stage at the Ford Amphitheater and it was definitely an epic Summer NY night. Funk Flex opened up the show pumping the crowd up with a slew of hits from the Golden Age of Hip to today’s trap-infused hits.

Young M.A. performed songs like “HennyNHoes,” “Praktice,” and of course her breakthrough single, “OOOUUU.”

The LOX closed the set performing classics like, “Hard Life,” “All For The Love,” as well as more current songs like Meek Mill’s “Heaven or Hell.” Lil Cease made a surprise appearance after the 90’s trio performed “Money, Power, Respect.” Camp Lo also came out to perform “This Is It.”

The vibe at the Ford Amphitheater was unmatched last night. What a better way to celebrate a NY Summer night than with some NY Hip Hop veterans, and a vital rising Brooklyn voice.

The 2018 Panorama Music Festival was not on mother nature’s good side. Day 1 of the festival was canceled due to severe weather conditions, but day 2 was in full swing.

Randall’s Island Park was filled with music lovers of different genres, immersive art, technology, and food. Although Lil Wayne couldn’t make it on his flight to New York because of harsh weather conditions, performances SZA, Gucci Mane, and the iconic Janet Jackson made the 2018 Panorama Music Festival all worth while for Hip Hop lovers.

Here’s everything you missed at the festival last weekend:

  1. Jhene Aiko, Migos, or The Weekend didn’t perform for Day 1 because the festival ended early due to thunder storms.

2. After a less than satisfactory performance in NYC last time she visited, SZA redeemed herself serenading the crowd with all of our favorites from CTRL. She also revealed that she’s going through a break up.

3. Gucci Mane brought out his wife Keyshia Ka’oir to help him sing some of his classics. He also brought out his new artist, the First Lady of 1017 Records, Asian Doll.

4. Janet Jackson had a politically charged opening where she tackled racism and discrimination. She went on to sing a slew of her timeless hits and snatched all of our edges in the process.

The Art Of The Production Album http://thesource.com/2018/07/29/the-art-of-the-production-album/ http://thesource.com/2018/07/29/the-art-of-the-production-album/#respond Mon, 30 Jul 2018 02:23:02 +0000 http://thesource.com/?p=455715 The Nas classic Illmatic showed how you can hand pick an all-star line up of producers to craft a soundscape that can perfectly fit the picture that the lyricist is trying to make.

The Nas classic Illmatic showed how you can hand pick an all-star line up of producers to craft a soundscape that can perfectly fit the picture that the lyricist is trying to make. But what happens when a producer tries to do the same and assemble a line up of different rappers to make their point over his beats and then try to shape that into an album? Hit or miss is usually the general consensus and for whatever reason, it’s tough for a producer to make the same kind of noise whilst essentially playing the same game. A lot of the time they fail when it comes to consistency and employing rappers based on name value rather than what they can contribute to the vision. Here are five of the top albums that follow this mold:

The Alchemist1st Infantry: The 2004 solo debut by The Alchemist had a guest list that both underground and more mainstream fans would salivate over. While the hip-hop world was certainly no stranger to the man that had laced beats for Defari, Terror Squad, Pharoahe Monch, Capone-N-Noreaga, Dilated Peoples, Mobb Deep, Nas and Ghostface Killah among others before dropped his first attempt at a solo album. 1st Infantry boasted more of the same gritty street level, good quality hip-hop music from his usual collaborators. The chemistry between ALC and the MC’s chosen for the record was so organic and natural that the record really did feel like a collaborative album with everyone on the same page, rather than a handful of songs that happen to all have the same beat maker.

Statik SelektahExtended Play: While this wasn’t his first crack at making a production album it is definitely a fan favorite. Dropping 12 years after he first hit the scene with fellow Boston native Reks the thing that sets this record apart from a lot of other production albums is the fact that it merges several eras seamlessly with collaborations like the Raekwon, Joey Bada$$ and Black Thought laced “Birds Eye View” and Smiff N Wessun teaming up with Flatbush Zombies on “Camouflage Dons”. A near perfect ode to the soulful and hard-hitting essence of East Coast Hip-hop.

Pete RockSoul Survivor: The soul brother Pete Rock dropped his first solo effort in 1998, 4 years after The Main Ingredient with C.L. Smooth to quench our thirst for the laid back minimalistic jazzy hip-hop that was seemingly lacking in the late 90’s. Whilst sprinkling his own vocals on a handful of songs, an all-star consisting of Kurupt, Kool G Rap, Big Pun, Prodigy, Tragedy and several Wu-Tang Clan members also joined him throughout the release to make sure things stayed fresh but consistent.

Jake OneWhite Van Music: While Jake One wasn’t a household name, he had contributed to albums from the likes of 50 Cent, Evidence, De La Soul, G Unit, and Mix Master Mike before the release of his 2008 production album White Van Music. The Rhymesayers release was a brilliant blend of backpacker purist favorites like Slug of Atmosphere, Little Brother and two separate MF DOOM tracks and the hardcore styling of artists like M.O.P., Freeway, and Busta Rhymes. Since then he has continued to walk that same tightrope having provided audio backdrops for J. Cole, Drake and The Weeknd.

DJ SkizzHigh Powered: Although he’s been around for over a decade DJ Skizz’s name has really come to light as the producer behind the mysterious Your Old Droog whom you may remember from the Nas alter ego rumors that were circling around his self-titled debut (which is quite the flattering comparison). This year he dropped a short production album of just 7 tracks, which seems to be the thing to do at this point in time. While people will check this out due to the Westside Gunn, Conway and Freeway track ‘Dead Wrong’ and the hard body title track that features Vinnie Paz, Lil Fame and Jakk Frost there are certainly hidden gems from YL and Starker, DITC’s Milano and Nems, Willie Da Kid, Planet Asia and Crimeapple and the ever respected Detroit veteran Ty Farris. This is certainly worth checking out for those interested in a little something old and a little something new. It is certainly proven that chemistry and artistic vision is far more important than name recognition when it comes to crafting the perfect compilation album.
