Quavo (Migos) Responds To Recent Robbery With “Tha Truth”

A week after being assaulted and robbed following a performance outside our nation’s capital, Migos member Quavo has released a song he hopes will reach those responsible.

Here’s what we know to be fact: Last week, Quavo and the rest of Migos were performing in Washington D.C. At the end of the night, Migos were leaving the club when they were approached by people claiming to be associated with rapper Fat Trel. Mayhem soon ensued, and in the midst of the chaos someone snatched Quavo’s gold chain. This information eventually made it to rap blogs, and over the last week the industry has been wondering how the men of Migos would react. Some expected violence, while others expected silence. Turns out, neither were right.

“Tha Truth” found its way online early Tuesday, November 25. The song features a ton of bars from Quavo, each focused primarily on the events that took place in D.C. last week. There’s mention of the crime, as well as Quavo’s desire for retaliation. No names are dropped and no direct threats are made, but Quavo makes it clear he’s not letting this go without a fight. You can stream the song, in full, below: Read more »

WATCH: Dej Loaf Performs On Fallon

I have a confession to make: We recently dropped the ball on a hot hip-hop talent that has quickly begun making huge waves in the music industry. Dej Loaf is a Detroit emcee with a lot of passion for music, and her sound is quickly setting her apart from others on the rise. We missed her recent mixtape release, but we are making it a point to never miss another big headline, starting with her recent TV debut.

Appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show, Dej Loaf made her television debut last night with a performance of her popular mixtape effort “Try Me.” The song, which was brought to life with a little help from The Roots, offers a laid back production that provides Loaf with ample room to flex her lyrical talents. Her delivery is top shelf, as is the badass robe she rocks in the clip. Check it out: Read more »

You know the story by now: Seth Rogen plays the producer of James Franco’s popular celebrity talk show. One day, the pair receive an offer to interview North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un, which they immediately accept. Before they can depart, however, the US government recruits Franco and Rogen for the purpose of assassinating the foreign leader as they are the only two Americans with any chance of getting close enough to make such a move. The new trailer introduces Jong-Un, as well as several new gags. You can view the footage below: Read more »

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: The Classic Crime – “We All Look Elsewhere (Revisited)”

After reaching the milestone of existing an entire decade as a band, The Classic Crime looked to celebrate with the assistance of their fans. Creating a Kickstarter project that received over triple its original goal, the Seattle outfit were thus able to recently release What Was Done, Vol. 1: A Decade Revisited — a phenomenal compilation of re-recorded fan favorites that guitarist/vocalist Matt MacDonald explains in further detail:

“I think a lot of folks were expecting an acoustic record, or very live sounding, stripped-down versions of our songs. To be honest, that’s what we were planning to do, until we raised three times the support we needed to make the record. It became something bigger, much more layered, and much more interesting in my opinion, so it was nice to give that to our supporters and read their reactions to it.”

As for specific songs on the record, “We All Look Elsewhere (Revisited)” is quite the standout as it allowed MacDonald to fulfill his “decade-long dream” of performing the “Danny-Elfman-style symphonic arrangements.” Read more »

Beyoncé is clearly on top of the music world after releasing her stunning, self-titled, visual album without any promotion — grabbing awards left and right, and touring worldwide both solo and with her husband, Jay-Z.

Also included on the bonus disc will be remixes of certain songs that will feature Kanye West, Pharrell, and Nicki Minaj.

System Of A Down To Play Armenian Genocide Tribute Shows in Europe

Years ago, the announcement of a System Of A Down reunion launched excitement and rumors of new music from the Armenian metal band. Unfortunately, fans would later receive confirmation that a new album was in fact not in the works.

Despite this, listeners around the world have clung tight to the band’s announcements, hoping that something great would still come from the reformation of the group. Today, some of those fans are going to feel quite lucky.

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, System Of A Down have booked several European dates in 2015 including their first ever show in their home country- a free performance in Yerevan’s public square. Additional shows in Moscow, London, Cologne, and Amsterdam have also been announced as part of the ‘Wake Up The Souls Tour.’

You can check out a tour annoucement video from the band below, as well as a full list of dates. Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov 28. Read more »
