UTG PHOTOS: The Boys of Zummer Tour – Wiz Khalifa & Fall Out Boy (6/16/15)

Under The Gun Review sent photographer Kellie Gannon to Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, OH to shoot The Boys of Zummer Tour on June 16.

The Boys of Zummer tour rolled up at Blossom Music Center on a perfect summer evening. Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa teamed up with Chicago’s pop punk sweethearts, Fall Out Boy, to provide an unrivaled outdoor concert experience for thousands upon thousands of fans in attendance.

Wiz Khalifa kicked off his hour-plus-long set with the perfect summer tune, “Roll Up,” and immediately the crowded lawn beyond the amphitheater was overcome with a very obvious, smoky …


BEHIND THE SCENES: Melody Joy’s “Beauty Is Pain” Video Shoot

Melody Joy is one of the most ridiculously unique performers I’ve stumbled upon in a while. Admittedly, at first view of her music video for “Ronald Reagan,” I was confused and drawn in by the spectacle of it all. It combines elements of humor, strangeness, various foods and sexuality. It’s the first rap song that I’ve seen incorporate a Mikhail Gorbachev reference and a popcorn-filled bathtub. It seemed strange that it only had a few hundred views on it, but it turns out YouTube took it down after 15,000 views because of its sexual nature, but Joy later …


REVIEW: Ty Dolla $ign – ‘$ign Language’

Artist: Ty Dolla Sign
Album: $ign Language
Genre: Hip-hop

After seven years of making people move with his original take on urban music, Ty Dolla $ign makes it clear that he is ready for the next level of stardom with $ign Language.

Most people in music today have made their money leveraging a signature sound and perfecting it again and again. Ty Dolla $ign did this quite a bit early on, but over the last two or three years the California native has been exploring the possibilities of urban music through a series of mixtape and EP releases. The …


REVIEW: Wiz Khalifa – ‘Blacc Hollywood’

Artist: Wiz Khalifa
Album: Blacc Hollywood
Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

On his third studio album, Wiz Khalifa has recorded a collection of potential radio singles that offer little cohesion, but plenty of reasons to have a good time.

Wiz Khalifa is to music what Doug Benson is to comedy; and by that I mean they’re both a variation of Cheech and Chong for a new generation. They’ve all managed to make careers out of embracing their love of marijuana. As long as they continue to carry the torch of weed, and all the things it can do to improve life for those …


SINGLE REVIEW: will.i.am Featuring Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, and French Montana – “Feeling Myself”

Track: “Feeling Myself”
Artist: will.i.am, Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, French Montana
Album: TBA

There was a time when no one could touch the talent of will.i.am, and if we’re being completely honest it was not that long ago. Black Eyed Peas were topping the charts with a new song every month or two, shows were sold out, and every company looking for an endorsement was (likely) knocking down will.i.am’s door hoping to slap their logo on his next project. Will eventually decided to step out on his own, and for a long time people believed he would be even …

If 2013 was the year of Juicy J, which I certainly believe it has been at least as far as hip hop is concerned, then 2014 is shaping up …

Lola Monroe Streams “B.B. (Boss Bitch)” Featuring Chevy Woods & Juicy J

The world is well aware of the men who lead Taylor Gang, but today we’re going to take a look at a member of the opposite sex who is poised to takeover hip-hop in the months ahead.

Lola Monroe is the Nicki Minaj destroyer urban music has been waiting the better part of a year to hear. Her style fits nicely with the chill-yet-driven feel of Taylor Gang associates Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Chevy Woods, but has a distinctive sense of self-awareness that makes it entirely her own. “B.B.,” which is basically the conservative friendly …


Wiz Khalifa Releases “Look Into My Eyes”

Following a summer spent focusing on family, Wiz Khalifa is ramping up anticipation for his upcoming album with the release of a new song entitled, “Look Into My Eyes.”

Hitting the net late last night, “Look Into My Eyes” is the first solo track to surface from Wiz in many months. The song may or may not appear on Blacc Hollywood, but for now it’s available to stream and download online. You can access the track at the end of this post.

To be honest, I expected Wiz to drop something far more radio friendly to mark his return, …


King Chip Debuts “Fresh At My Funeral” Featuring GLC And Chevy Woods

Cleveland bred emcee King Chip has released a brand new, must-hear single entitled, “Fresh At My Funeral.”

Taken from Chip’s forthcoming 44108 mixtape, which is expected to surface online in September, the latest from the Ohio native is another in a long-line of potential smash hits. Chip has found a lot of success guesting over the last year, and it seems 44108 is poised to push him further into the spotlight than anything else to date. You can stream “Fresh At My Funeral” at the end of this post.

In hopes of giving credit where it is due, it would …

Juicy J Debuts “Shootin” Featuring Wiz Khalifa

Taylor Gang‘s finest duo have partnered once again on a Stay Trippy leftover you can stream and download for free.

Recently, Juicy J revealed to the world he recorded over 80 tracks when working on his forthcoming album, Stay Trippy. Seeing as only a dozen or so will make the final cut, it only stands to reason that Juicy will be blessing the internet with the leftover in the months to come.
