Hudson Mohawke Chimes In On New Single

Due to receiving stamps of approval ranging from hoards of trap music fans all the way up to our lord and savior Kanye West, expectations are always high for Hudson Mohawke’s newest releases, whether they be for collaborations with Lunice under the now defunct TNGHT banner, or in the case of a brand new cut entitled “Chimes,” his solo work. Fortunately for the bass pounding producer, most listeners will surely be pleased with his latest effort. Featuring bare-bones percussion and bass kicks sounding more akin to Death Grips than Mohawke, floaty synths swirl about before sinking into a slow-burning beatdown …

Kanye West Played 20 New Songs in London Yesterday

When it comes to Kanye West, it’s best to expect the unexpected. Shortly after dropping the excellent Yeezus out of nowhere last summer, he’s already dishing up new material despite getting married, working on his fashion line, and doing court-ordered community service. That’s right. After London’s Wireless festival last night, Kanye and consigliere Virgil Abloh manned a London club’s DJ booth where he supposedly spun new material.

According to Complex and several eyewitness Twitter accounts, they played around 20 new songs. People described it as “dark,” “hellish,” and (surprise) “groundshaking.” Who knows if the songs are …

Chris Rock Announces First Stand-Up Comedy Tour In Six Years

It may be hard to believe this, but more than half a decade has passed since Chris Rock last graced the live stage as a stand-up comic. His most recent special, Kill The Messenger, was recorded in 2008 and released in early 2009, which makes it so old that the majority of the material still references the George W. Bush administration. Woof.

Earlier this week, Chris Rock surprised fans when he announced on Jimmy Fallon’s late night television show that he is returning to the stand-up stage this fall with a new nationwide tour. Dates for the run have …

Street Art Depicting Kanye West As Jesus Christ Being Crucified Is Guaranteed To Infuriate Conservatives

There are few quicker ways to piss off conservative members of our society than by making a mockery of their religion, especially on Easter weekend. Add Yeezus to the mix and nonsense like this begins to occur.

Yesterday (Good Friday), a new piece of street art appeared in Los Angeles depicting rapper Kanye West as Jesus Christ being crucified on the cross. A message accompanying the image read “The new messiah?,” but offered no insight as to who first brought the image to life. You can view the image, courtesy of someone with a smartphone, below:…
