Death Cab for Cutie Release “Black Sun” Lyric Video, Announce Tour

Death Cab For Cutie have shared the lyric video for “Black Sun,” the first single off their highly-anticipated new album, Kintsugi, and also the first track to surface from the band since the departure of longtime guitarist, Chris Walla.

It’s hard to go into a new song from someone like Death Cab For Cutie without having some type of expectation for the material on deck. Death Cab have carved a beautifully dynamic niche for themselves in the world of music up to this point, and “Black Sun” certainly does not disappoint. That said, it also doesn’t sound all that …

UTG PREMIERE: Marco Featuring Keano Spitta – “WITIT”

We have been featuring a lot of new talent as of late, but the amount of fresh hip-hop appearing on UTG has admittedly been low. We aim to change that this afternoon, however, and we’ve recruited some of our favorite young talents to help make that happen.

Kicking off 2015 with a bang, WFFW member Marco is back at it with the uptempo ride-out anthem titled “WITIT.” This is the third single from his anticipated mixtape, “$tudio Night$,” and in our opinion it’s one of his best tracks to date. Produced by Tay on the Beat, the song features Marco …

Motley Crue Stream Final Single (Ever), “All Bad Things”

Motley Crue made headlines earlier this week when they revealed a slew of new tour dates that will extend their final tour as a band until New Year’s Eve 2015. Last night, they took the hype surrounding their final bow one step further by sharing the video for their final single ever. Much to our surprise, it kind of rocks.

“All Bad Things” is a track born out of the singles that made Motley Crue a household name. It’s a fun, riff-heavy rock thrill ride that boasts a catchy chorus even your grandmother could learn in a single refrain. On …

Meek Mill Drops “Monster” & Reaffirms His Hip-Hop Dominance

Meek Mill spent a good portion of 2014 incarcerated, and it was because of that time away that his long-awaited Sophomore album was pushed from September to the new year. We still don’t know when Dreams Worth More Than Money will arrive, but late last night we got a new track that has put the entire rap community on its head.

“Monster” is the full-length version of “The Get Back,” a freestyle that surfaced earlier in the month. The track finds Meek Mill going in over a Jahill Beats production with the wit, speed, and intelligence that has become his …

Young Thug And Rich Homie Quan Collaborate On “In The Game”

I’m starting to believe we’re not allowed to move from one week to the next unless Rich Homie Quan and/or Young Thug share new material. The two Atlanta natives, both of whom have been on the radar of every urban music writer for well over a year, have continued their long-running streak of sharing new material by dropping a collaborative effort titled “In The Game.”

You know how this works by now: Thugga Thugga and Rich Homie Quan seem to spend every minute of free time working on new material, and with each passing week one or three tracks find …

A$AP Rocky Drops “Pretty Flacko 2″

Almost exactly two years have passed since A$AP Rocky turned hip-hop upside down with the release of Live.Long.Asap. Rocky’s output has been slacking over the last year or so, but last night he welcomed the new year by providing a sneak peak at what he’s got in store for fans in 2015.

“Pretty Flacko 2″ plays like a trailer for whatever album/mixtape the A$AP Mob ringleader is currently preparing to share with the world. The two-minute track features bars on bars on bars, all delivered through Rocky’s signature rhyme-heavy flow. You can stream the song below:…

Usher Clings To Fleeting Youth By Joining Migos On “Still Got It”

Usher was the biggest male pop star in the world when I was leaving middle school with wide eyes and hopes high school wouldn’t be like it was depicted in every John Hughes movie. That was over a decade ago at this point, and the age of Usher topping charts with every single has long since disappeared. He still packs arenas, thanks in no small part to his vast catalog of hits, but in recent years his singles have largely fallen short of their predecessors’ glory.

This week, Usher tried once more to prove to young people he is still …

Kanye West Drops “Only One” Featuring Paul McCartney

It’s a new year and anything is possible, including a collaborative album from two of music’s biggest living icons.

Late last night, Kanye West surprised the world when he released a new track titled “Only One.” The song is the result of a recent studio collaboration between West and Paul McCartney which, according to a press release dispersed early this morning, will likely produce additional material in the coming months. To be specific, the press release describes today’s single as “the first publicly available recording from what has become a prolific musical collaboration between these two legendary artists.”

Nipsey Hussle Drops “Choke” Feat. Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan

The last day of 2014 is upon us, and if you’re anything like the UTG crew you are still scrambling to piece together the perfect New Year’s Eve party playlist. It’s okay, we’ve all been there. I only have about a dozen songs set myself, but earlier today DJ Drama gave me a new track that simply could not be denied.

“Choke” is a track Nipsey Hussle fans have been waiting to hear for quite a while. The song was originally teased on the rapper’s Instagram and has since been one of the most anticipated tracks off Hussle’s upcoming Mailbox

Riff Raff & Rae Sremmurd Reign Supreme On New Song “Choppin”

Riff Raff and Rae Sremmurd have each had their most successful year as artists in 2014, so it may come as no surprise that the rap heavyweights are kicking off 2015 with a collaborative single you won’t soon forget.

Taken from Mike Will Made It‘s recently released Ransom mixtape, “Choppin” will soon be the official new single from Riff Raff and Rae Sremmurd. The track boasts bass-heavy production and an infectious hook that sticks in your mind like peanut butter to the roof of your mouth. It’s the kind of ignorant, give no thought to what haters or lames …

You, Me, And Everyone We Know Stream “Raise Them Bones”

It wasn’t long ago that we learned You, Me, And Everyone We Know were planning to release new material in 2015. In fact, it was within the last 30 days that mastermind Ben Liebsch revealed the group’s new label and the news that another album was well on its way to reaching fans. We were excited about this news almost immediately, but we never thought we would hear new music before the new year arrived.

Today, Substream Magazine released a short, 4-song sampler to help bring attention to some young bands on the rise. One of the tracks, “Raise Them …

Rae Sremmurd Stream Debut Album, ‘Sremmlife’

Rae Sremmurd have been one of the most talked about urban acts of 2014, and early next week they will attempt to continue their popularity in 2015 with the release of their debut album, Sremmlife. We have been covering the album and its development heavily since May, but it was just a few hours ago that we finally heard what the “No Flex Zone” duo have been working on all this time.

Starting today, fans of Rae Sremmurd can access an early stream of the group’s debut LP, Sremmlife, thanks to the team at iTunes …
