MUST HEAR: Jay Rock Featuring Black Hippy – “Vice City”

There are only a handful of rap collectives who can say every member brings something unique and equally high quality to the table. Among them, Black Hippy is arguably the most successful of the bunch. From Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q, to the continuing rise of Ab-Soul and Jay Rock, this group has all the potential in the world, and so far they have yet to disappoint.

Today, Jay Rock continued to promote his upcoming album by sharing a new track featuring the entire Black Hippy crew. The song is called “Vice City” and it’s actually a far more chill …


Lana Del Rey Delivers Yet Again On “Music To Watch Boys To”

This week just went from good to great. Lana Del Rey has shared another promotional single from Honeymoon, and this one might just be the best yet.

Built atop the kind of epic cinematic strings that helped give Ultraviolence its timeless aesthetic, “Music To Watch Boys To” is the kind of slow-burn LDR goodness fans have come to expect from their queen. The song was originally slated to be the lead single for Honeymoon, but Lana’s label intervened at the last minute and chose the hypnotic “High By The Beach” instead. While I think that was …

That ‘Free’ Miley Cyrus Album May Not Be What You Expect

Miley Cyrus has yet to officially announce her fifth studio album, but already the pop star has found herself at the center of yet another media frenzy.

Cyrus has been planning for some time to release her new studio album for free. According to manager Adam Leber, the pop diva was even willing to buy out her record deal to make it happen. “If RCA wasn’t down the gratis plan, she was prepared to buy herself out of the label,” he told Marie Claire. Such a move should be grounds for a history making event. Never before has a …


Lana Del Rey Keeps It Simple On “Terrence Loves You”

Bow down, everyone. The queen is back with more good music for her people to enjoy.

Heartache is one of the cornerstones of Lana Del Rey‘s music. Just like men who believe themselves to be rebellious bad-asses and the unshakable itch to smoke weed by the sea, heartache is one of the things that makes the music of Lana Del Rey pop, and her latest single reminds us just how good feeling low can sound.

“Terrence Loves You” is a track about the end of a romance that the storyteller, Lana, still clings to with all her might. …

The Dear Hunter Impress With New Song, “Waves”

Oh, Casey Crescenzo. I know I am engaged to be married in under a year’s time, but if I could run away with the music he creates with The Dear Hunter I would leave my gal at the alter without a second thought. I think she would understand, but even if she didn’t – oh well.

To be serious for a moment, The Dear Hunter have shared another song off their highly-anticipated new album, Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise. The track, titled “Waves,” had its world premiere on Billboard earlier today. You can stream the song at the end …

The Dear Hunter’s New Song Proves They’re Still The Best

It’s June, which means anyone with even the slightest hint of interest in entertainment has been compiling and sharing their ‘best of 2015 so far’ lists. We haven’t released any yet, but if you think we haven’t talked about doing so you would be a damn fool. They’re coming, or at least should, at some point in the near future.

I thought I knew my picks for the best musical offerings this year. In fact, I wrote them all down just last week in order to begin brainstorming a creative way to share them here on UTG. That was before …
