Chance, The Rapper

You Can Now Download Chance The Rapper’s ‘Surf’ For Free

It seems more and more surprise releases come our way as the year progresses. Illinois recording artist Chance The Rapper (alongside long-time pal Nico Segal) put out a new record over the weekend, entitled Surf. The sixteen-track effort is a collaboration under their side project, Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment.

One might believe that this is a follow-up to Chance’s Acid Rap mixtape from ’13; it is worth pointing out, though, that Surf is largely Nico’s project and as Chance shares: “He was working on it when we decided to be The Social Experiment, so we …

Rick Ross & Big Sean Remix Future’s “Commas”

Following a lackluster 2014, Future has spent the first half of 2015 reaffirming his positing amongst the hip-hop elite. His latest offering, “Commas,” boasts an ego-driven flow that has spent the past several weeks winning over rap fans coast to coast. The song hasn’t cracked the top of the charts as of yet, but a new remix making the rounds online this morning leads us to believe that will soon change.

Late last night, May 25, a new remix of “Commas” found its way online. The tracks strips all of Future’s verses from the original effort and replaces them with …

Fall Out Boy Release “Uma Thurman” Video Feat. Brendon Urie, Big Sean & More

“The intent of the ‘Uma’ video is to deliver [a] fly-on-the-wall look into our life backstage & at home only on steroids,” Illinois pop-rock outfit Fall Out Boy tweeted not too long ago, describing the craziness that is their new music video for their song “Uma Thurman.” The track, which is taken from American Beauty/American Psycho, features Sarah, the fan who “won” the “Be Our Assistant For A Day” contest, as she diligently obliges to the band’s crazy requests both on and off stage.

REVIEW: Big Sean – ‘Dark Sky Paradise’

Artist: Big Sean
Album: Dark Sky Paradise
Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Dark Sky Paradise is not one step closer to the record fans have been waiting for Big Sean to create, but five. Coming off the largely forgettable Hall Of Fame, the Detroit native spent the majority of 2014 crafting his most honest, ambitious, and creative record to date. It’s not perfect, but then again neither is he.

Opening with “Dark Sky (Skyscrapers),” Sean reintroduces himself while touching on topics like wealth, success, and the patience you need in order to attain either. His flow flip-flops from slow to fast and …

Big Sean Stuns With “One Man Can Change The World”

With a week to go before Dark Sky Paradise hits, Big Sean has shared what may soon be considered a modern classic.

Built upon a steady piano accompaniment, “One Man Can Change The World” pairs Big Sean with Kanye West and John Legend for an ode to a child’s endless potential. Sean has always been one to speak of his ambition and how it lead him to turn his dreams into reality, but here he takes things to another level altogether. There’s always time spent paying tribute to Sean’s late grandmother, including a cell phone message. You can stream the …

Meek Mill Shares “B-Boy” Video Featuring Big Sean & A$AP Ferg

Having dropped a number of freestyles in celebration of his release from incarceration earlier this year, Meek Mill cements his return to the top of the rap echelon with the official video for “B-Boy.”

Oh, you haven’t heard “B-Boy”? That isn’t hard to understand seeing as the song was quietly released at the beginning of the week. Initially we didn’t understand this marketing move, but now that a video has been revealed everything is starting to make sense. “B-Boy” bangs without any additional help, but the video certainly takes the whole affair to a new level. It’s a 90s style …
