Game & Drake Swap Bars About The Realities Of Fame On “100″

The Game and Drake just delivered a new single that is destined to take hip-hop by storm in no time at all.

Remember when Drake was spotted dropping a few unreleased bars to a sold out Detroit crowd late last month? That so-called freestyle was actually an unannounced preview for the Toronto native’s latest collaboration with California heavyweight The Game. “100″ finds the two top shelf emcees swapping bars that address the snakes in the grass who think they slink by unseen, as well as the reality of pursuing your dreams in a time where most feel unable to even …

New Music: Migos – “John Wick” & “Pretty Little Lady”

Despite an ongoing legal battle that has left one member behind bars for over a month, Migos continue to share new music with fans. We shared one new song last week, and just last night two more tracks found their way online.

Produced by Deko, “John Wick” and “Pretty Little Lady” showcase two very different sides of the Migos men. The former, which takes its name from the 2014 Keanu Reeves film with the same title, lays a foundation ripe for off the cuff ego-rap that Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff make their own in no time at all. The latter, …

New Music: Goldlink – “Dance On Me”

The world has been waking up to the unique sound of Goldlink for the better part of the last year, and earlier today the D.C. native treated us with yet another exciting new track.

“Dance On Me,” which found its way online Monday afternoon, finds Goldlink offering his signature quick-spit sound over soulful production from Milo Mills and Hasta. It’s not the kind of a club banger that would have found its way onto his 2014 mixtape, The God Complex, but it’s also nothing you wouldn’t expect. It’s simply another side of Goldlink’s dynamic personality, and it should fit …

New Music: Eminem – “Phenomenal”

Today is a good day. Why? It’s simple: Eminem‘s contribution to the Southpaw soundtrack, “Phenomenal,” is finally here.

Having been teased through a series of short clips that found their way online earlier in the year, “Phenomenal” is the latest in a string of single releases from the Detroit native that have come from places other than a new LP. There is a bit of sadness in that fact, as it has been nearly two years since Em’s last studio album, but thankfully “Phenomenal” is a track that earns its promising title.

Both inspiring and typically dark, “Phenomenal” is …

UTG PREMIERE: Seakings – “Kowloon (Walled City)”

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but UTG has been undergoing a bit of a transformation over the last month. Our staff, which once included over 30 contributors, has been greatly scaled back in order to better focus our editorial efforts and dedicate more time to connecting people with the music, films, and art we really care about. Covering the latest Billboard or Warped Tour sensation no longer matters to us as much as it once did. What we want more than anything else is to ensure the precious time you have to dedicate to media is time well …

SINGLE REVIEW: We Came As Romans – “The World I Used To Know”

Artist: We Came As Romans
Song: “The World I Used To Know”
Album: Self-Titled

The evolution of We Came As Romans is entangled with the band’s own passion for storytelling and inspirational lyricism. Their journey is their song, and their songs detail their journey. Having long conquered the world of post-hardcore with multiple albums featuring top shelf production and the perfect combination of sing/scream vocals, the group have now stripped their music to its core, and through doing so found a new sound that marks the beginning of yet another chapter in their already celebrated career.…

Drake Drops Unreleased Freestyle During Detroit Performance

Warning: You probably aren’t ready for this.

Drake is not spending much of the summer on the road, but right now he’s currently joining Future on the far too short ‘Jungle’ tour that is hitting arenas nationwide. Last night the run stopped in Detroit at the Palace Of Auburn Hills, and the man behind Views From The Six decided to share something never before released with the crowd of thousands who had paid to see him perform. We weren’t there, but fortunately for us (and you), someone shot a video.

Now you’ve probably seen Drake freestyle before. His flow, though …

The Weeknd Drops “The Hills”

The Weeknd may still be enjoying the success of his single “Earned It,” but he’s back today with a new single and video fans are sure to enjoy.

“The Hills” arrives online just two days after a number of unexpected leaks from The Weeknd hit the net (including the incredible “I Can’t Feel My Face“). Whether this release is a response to those leaks or an attempt to better control the conversation remains unclear, but the quality of this material is undeniable. There is very little to the song that is outside the typical sound of …

We Came As Romans Stream “The World I Used To Know”

Michigan natives We Came As Romans continue their transformation from breakdown-loving bad boys to radio rock titans this afternoon with the premiere of “The World I Used To Know.”

It has been a minute since fans last heard from We Came As Romans, and in that time the band has spent a lot of time developing their skills as both songwriters and musicians. The band reportedly wrote forty songs for their upcoming self-titled album, but in the end decided that only ten of those tracks were good enough to make the actual record. “The World I Used To Know” was …

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 …

The Weeknd Shares “I Can’t Feel My Face”

With “Earned It” continuing to dominate the charts, The Weeknd has surprised fans once again with a surprise single release.

“I Can’t Feel My Face” appeared online late Monday night, May 25. The song boasts dance-ready production inspired by the heights of funk and soul. It’s the kind of endless groove that could play all night long, and Abel’s voice only serves to take the entire affair to the next level. The drug use alluded to in the title is not as present in the music as one might expect, but it’s implied nonetheless. You can stream the song below.…

New Music: Juicy J Feat. Drake & Ty Dolla $ign – “Tryna F*ck”

Without warning or promotion, a new Juicy J track has begun to circulate online that many are already calling the next big hit of summer 2015.

“Tryna Fuck” is not the kind of title you can sell to radio, but the studio quality song that leaked from Juicy J over the weekend is actually the edited version of a song with that very name, only this time the hook has been changed to “Tryna Love.” Make no mistake though, it’s clear from each line in every verse, not to mention the celebratory hook, that the headliners behind this track have …
