Here is Marcus LoVett Jr's official junior season mixtape. The 6' point guard lead San Gabriel Academy to a CIF Championship while putting on an incredible show game in and game out. Music by: WoodysProduce Web: http://www.woodysproduce.com
Justo and Elbe Kim paired up for Fly Seoul mixtape and their sound together just works. The tape has the classic boom-bap sound of the earlier era of hip hop. Justo, hailing from Brooklyn, dropped some pretty dope bars on this tape. Kim delivered the instrumentals and DJ Risky Business brought it all full circle.
“When I say nothing, I say everything,” howls Jack White on “Lazaretto”, staking the declaration between verses he spits out a little like Dylan in “Subterranean Homesick Blues”. The idea is enforced when, after swelling with distortion and flying phalanges, the song launches into a psych bzzzz and detours yet again for a fiddle-sweeped closing leg, reminding us that White produced Loretta Lynn not long ago. Just don’t expect either version (this or the world-record-breaking RSD single) to wow the average kindergartner more than, say, the world’s largest sundae. Lazaretto, White’s second solo album, is out June 10th. –Michael Madden The title track from Jack White's new album LAZARETTO out June 9/10.

Ever since she released her progressive and promising debut mixtape CUT 4 ME in 2013, R&B singer/songwriter Kelela continues to impress with new material like the bass-heavy “The High” and the Bok Bok-assisted “Melba’s Call”. Her latest, “Want It”, is a collaboration with rising Chicago singer/rapper Tink and features production courtesy of DJ Dahi. The song, which was commissioned by Yours Truly for its Songs From Scratch series, is sensual and understated. DJ Dahi’s click-clack percussion and ambient synths provide an inviting canvas for Kelela’s soulful hooks and Tink’s laid back verses. Listen in below. "Want It" Produced by DJ Dahi Additional production by J.lbs & Patrick Wimberly Mixed by Patrick Wimberly Mastered by Chris Gehringer Watch a behind the scenes look at the making of the song. facebook.com/kelelamusic twitter.com/kelelam www.instagram.com/kelelam www.facebook.com/pages/Tink-G/507021099348104 twitter.com/Official_Tink instagram.com/tink_julio/ www.facebook.com/djdahi twitter.com/djdahi instagram.com/djdahi
Dios Mio up their game on new single “Stories”, released on 30 June with a launch party to follow at London’s Old Blue Last on 4 July. After the band introduced themselves with a couple of raw but highly promising demos last year, the London quartet are back with their full debut release this summer. In a marked progression, Dios Mio benefit from warm, rounded production on “Stories”, which sees that their brand of grunge-tinged pop is effortlessly accentuated. What’s more, built on a rigid rhythm section in which the drums and distorted bass allow for a brash intro, the melodic swells of guitar combined with Helena Coan’s delicate vocal means that “Stories” is perhaps a more diverse song than it might initially appear.

Flamingods started life in a defined place - someone's bedroom, in fact. Hinging on Kamal Rasool, the experimental five piece were suddenly thrust into a strange, stressful situation. Rasool was asked to leave the UK following a change to Visa rules, meaning that the songwriter was left in a curious, strenuous form of limbo. Drifting into his imagination, Flamingods began inhabiting the dream-world of Hyperborea. Using instruments collected from around the world, the group used these strange sounds to craft something entirely new. New album 'Hyperborea' is due to be released on July 21st and it is, simply, incomparable to almost anything you've heard. Gilded baroque pop melodies mixed to Eastern drones and all manner of bizarre noises, the title track is now available to stream online. Obeying no rules but its own, you can listen to 'Hyperborea' below. Flamingods are set to release new album 'Hyperborea' on July 21st.

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 HIGH (LASER CRIMSON/PURPLE/TEAL) If I could just say one word to describe this shoe, it would have to be ‘clean’, cos that’s what this is. Real talk. Some may say otherwise, but let’s disregard the nay sayers this time around, they’re probably not fans of the Air Force 1 to begin with. Ingrates! Nike have got things right with this one, because the combination of purple, crimson and teal above a white leather backdrop and a print on the mid-panel is a great way of doing just enough to put together a decent looking shoe without going overboard. Now let’s not get things twisted, this ain’t the Jesus of footwear, but you can’t deny that if put together with the right get-up, ladies and maybe some men, will come flocking to your feet to get a geeze at your steeze. So if you feel like you need this one in your arsenal, then head to Oneness for your fix.
Reebok was the first one to the whole streetball sneaker category back in the 1990s, with their entry to the category being marked by pairs like the Reebok Pump Battleground shown here. Over two decades later the sneakers are poised for a return, one that will be set off by these two pairs that are on display here in their native environment of the concrete court. Take a look at these two examples of pure Pump ferocity after the break and watch for these basketball silos to return to stores/courts/your feet on May 9th, 2014. Reebok Battleground Release Date: 05/09/14 Price: $125

Minneapolis hip-hop duo Atmosphere will release its eighth studio album, Southsiders, on May 6th via Rhymesayers Entertainment. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full at Pandora. Recorded in south Minneapolis and Oakland, the follow-up to 2011′s The Family Sign serves as a “shout-out to their native neighborhood”, according to a press release. It adds, “With Southsiders, the group’s unique sound featuring vibrant, live instrumentation and Slug’s often-weighty subject matter, continue to push the boundaries of what indie rap can mean.” According to rapper Slug, the 15-track effort is a “natural progression” of The Family Sign, adding, “I’m starting to think, ‘What is post family man? What am I supposed to rap about now?’ I’m sticking to my roots, rapping about what I’m doing, what I think about. This record is much like the other ones: a very detailed look at my life. “ CLICK LINK BELOW TO STREAM ALBUM! http://www.pandora.com/station/play/2000572596546416392 Southsiders Tracklist: 01.

Banks announces debut album, Goddess, streams title track Building on the momentum and success of her 2013 London EP, Los Angles songstress Banks is currently putting the final touches on her debut album Goddess for Harvest Records, due out on September 9th. Today she premiered its title track and lead single on BBC Radio 1xtra. No stranger to shadowy netherworlds populated by sticky beats and even sultrier vocals — see the sweaty, Shlohmo-produced “Brain” — Banks weaves together yet another tantalizer for the late-night crowd with the help of London producer and SBTRKT affiliate Lil Silva. While it’s shrouded in dark atmospherics, the inspiration behind the song tells a more empowering story, one that according to Banks, permeates throughout most of her forthcoming LP. “It’s so important for women to embrace themselves and feel like goddesses,” she said at a UK concert last month, right before debuting “Goddess” live. “The song’s called ‘Goddess’ because every woman is a f*cking goddess.” Amen to that.

That's a WRAP for Season 2 of Fresh Off The Boat. This year, we saw some really great moments traveling from Mongolia to Russia to Chengdu to NYC. So much so that we couldn't possibly fit it all into our previous episodes. But worry not, because we're coming at you with a blooper reel containing some of the most outrageous leftovers from the Human Panda and the FOB crew. Watch your boy, Eddie Huang, in the moments where the cameras shouldn't have been rolling. Can't wait to see you next season!

Chicago footwork legend DJ Rashad has reportedly died. While details are scarce, it is believed that the cause of death is a drug overdose. Detroit's DJ Godfather tweeted about the news, suggesting that he had heard back from a few of Rashad's close friends. Godfather was scheduled to DJ tonight alongside Rashad and DJ Spinn at the Inhale Art Expo in Detroit. Rashad, born Rashad Harden, has been a staple in the footwork scene for many years now. His last album, Double Cup, was released in October 2013. Earlier this month, he released a new EP called We On 1. Constantly on the road, he opened up for Chance The Rapper during the Social Experiment Tour this fall. DJ Rashad | I Don't Give A F*ck

Surprise! Boots vastly contributed to Beyoncé's latest studio album. To be exact, the singer-songwriter co-wrote and produced the tracks "Haunted", "Flawless", "Blue", "Drunk in Love", "Partition", "Jealous" and "Superpower" for our girl Bey. That's right, only seven out of the 14-song tracklist. Not too shabby, huh? The mysterious Boots took the entire Internet by surprise today (April 22) when he uploaded to SoundCloud a brand new song entitled 'Dreams' featuring none other than Queen Beyoncé herself! And this is what I call returning the favor....! I guess Beyoncé had no trouble lending her vocals when Boots asked her for a collab. She owes him so much! The almost 5-minute-long 'Dreams' is both a melodic and sultry R&B tune. FYI: Boots is signed to Roc Nation. Jay-Z + Beyoncé + Boots = more magic is possible.

Before part 2 of the interview ends, Logic tells us how his album will further delve into the stories of his adolescence, giving more insight into his relationship with dad and family among other things. Logic also talks about upcoming collaborations including tracks with Big Sean and Audio Push. We are just getting started with our conversation with Logic.

QuestLove is a man of many talents. As The Roots' drummer and a professor at New York University, he is also recognized as a scholar on all-music-everything. Now, the Philly native has scribed a series of six essays that focus on "hip-hop's recent past, thinking about its distant past, and wondering about the possibility of a future" on Vulture. In this week's essay, Quest conquers the topic, "When the People Cheer: How Hip-Hop Failed Black America", contemplating through ink how Black music's mainstream reach feels like a strange victory. "Once hip-hop culture is ubiquitous, it is also invisible," he writes. "Once it’s everywhere, it is nowhere. What once offered resistance to mainstream culture (it was part of the larger tapestry, spooky-action style, but it pulled at the fabric) is now an integral part of the sullen dominant." Read his piece here. When the People Cheer: How Hip-Hop Failed Black America By Questlove This is the first in a weekly series of six essays looking at hip-hop's recent past, thinking about its distant past, and wondering about the possibility of a future. There are three famous quotes that haunt me and guide me though my days. The first is from John Bradford, the 16th-century English reformer. In prison for inciting a mob, Bradford saw a parade of prisoners on their way to being executed and said, “There but for the grace of God go I.” (Actually, he said “There but for the grace of God goes John Bradford,” but the switch to the pronoun makes it work for the rest of us.) The second comes from Albert Einstein, who disparagingly referred to quantum entanglement as “spooky action at a distance.” And for the third, I go to Ice Cube, the chief lyricist of N.W.A., who delivered this manifesto in “Gangsta Gangsta” back in 1988: “Life ain’t nothing but bitches and money. Those three ideas may seem distant from one another, but if you set them up and draw lines between them, that’s triangulation. Bradford’s idea, of course, is about providence, about luck and gratitude: You only have your life because you don’t have someone else’s. At the simplest level, I think about that often. I could be where others are, and by extension, they could be where I am. You don’t want to be insensible to that. You don’t want to be an ingrate. (By the by, Bradford’s quote has come to be used to celebrate good fortune — when people say it, they’re comforting themselves with the fact that things could be worse — but in fact, his own good fortune lasted only a few years before he was burned at the stake.) Einstein was talking about physics, of course, but to me, he’s talking about something closer to home — the way that other people affect you, the way that your life is entangled in theirs whether or not there’s a clear line of connection. Just because something is happening to a street kid in Seattle or a small-time outlaw in Pittsburgh doesn’t mean that it’s not also happening, in some sense, to you. Human civilization is founded on a social contract, but all too often that gets reduced to a kind of charity: Help those who are less fortunate, think of those who are different. But there’s a subtler form of contract, which is the connection between us all. And then there’s Ice Cube, who seems to be talking about life’s basic appetites — what’s under the lid of the id — but is in fact proposing a world where that social contract is destroyed, where everyone aspires to improve themselves and only themselves, thoughts of others be damned. What kind of world does that create? Those three ideas, Bradford’s and Einstein’s and Cube’s, define the three sides of a triangle, and I’m standing in it with pieces of each man: Bradford’s rueful contemplation, Einstein’s hair, Ice Cube’s desires. Can the three roads meet without being trivial? This essay, and the ones that follow it, will attempt to find out. I’m going to do things a little differently, with some madness in my method. I may not refer back to these three thinkers and these three thoughts, but they’re always there, hovering, as I think through what a generation of hip-hop has wrought. And I’m not going to handle the argument in a straight line. But don’t wonder too much when it wanders. I’ll get back on track. * I want to start with a statement: Hip-hop has taken over black music. At some level, this is a complex argument, with many outer rings, but it has a simple, indisputable core. Look at the music charts, or think of as many pop artists as you can, and see how many of the black ones aren’t part of hip-hop. There aren’t many hip-hop performers at the top of the charts lately: You have perennial winners like Jay Z, Kanye West, and Drake, along with newcomers like Kendrick Lamar, and that’s about it. Among women, it’s a little bit more complicated, but only a little bit. The two biggest stars, Beyoncé and Rihanna, are considered pop (or is that pop-soul), but what does that mean anymore? In their case, it means that they’re offering a variation on hip-hop that’s reinforced by their associations with the genre’s biggest stars: Beyoncé with Jay Z, of course, and Rihanna with everyone from Drake to A$AP Rocky to Eminem. It wasn’t always that way. Back in the late '80s, when I graduated high school, you could count the number of black musical artists that weren’t in hip-hop on two hands — maybe. You had folksingers like Tracy Chapman, rock bands like Living Colour, pop acts like Lionel Richie, many kinds of soul singers — and that doesn’t even contend with megastars like Michael Jackson and Prince, who thwarted any easy categorization. Hip-hop was plenty present — in 1989 alone, you had De La Soul and the Geto Boys and EPMD and Boogie Down Productions and Ice-T and Queen Latifah — but it was just a piece of the pie. In the time since, hip-hop has made like the Exxon Valdez (another 1989 release): It spilled and spread. So what if hip-hop, which was once a form of upstart black-folk music, came to dominate the modern world? Isn’t that a good thing? It seems strange for an artist working in the genre to be complaining, and maybe I’m not exactly complaining. Maybe I’m taking a measure of my good fortune. Maybe. Or maybe it’s a little more complicated than that. Maybe domination isn’t quite a victory. Maybe everpresence isn’t quite a virtue. Twenty years ago, when my father first heard about my hip-hop career, he was skeptical. He didn't know where it was all headed. In his mind, a drummer had a real job, like working as music director for Anita Baker. But if I’m going to marvel at the way that hip-hop overcame his skepticism and became synonymous with our broader black American culture, I’m going to have to be clear with myself that marvel is probably the wrong word. Black culture, which has a long tradition of struggling against (and at the same time, working in close collaboration with) the dominant white culture, has rounded the corner of the 21st century with what looks in one sense like an unequivocal victory. Young America now embraces hip-hop as the signal pop-music genre of its time. So why does that victory feel strange: not exactly hollow, but a little haunted? I have wondered about this for years, and worried about it for just as many years. It’s kept me up at night or kept me distracted during the day. And after looking far and wide, I keep coming back to the same answer, which is this: The reason is simple. The reason is plain. Once hip-hop culture is ubiquitous, it is also invisible. Once it’s everywhere, it is nowhere. What once offered resistance to mainstream culture (it was part of the larger tapestry, spooky-action style, but it pulled at the fabric) is now an integral part of the sullen dominant. Not to mention the obvious backlash conspiracy paranoia: Once all of black music is associated with hip-hop, then Those Who Wish to Squelch need only squelch one genre to effectively silence an entire cultural movement. And that’s what it’s become: an entire cultural movement, packed into one hyphenated adjective. These days, nearly anything fashioned or put forth by black people gets referred to as “hip-hop,” even when the description is a poor or pointless fit. “Hip-hop fashion” makes a little sense, but even that is confusing: Does it refer to fashions popularized by hip-hop musicians, like my Lego heart pin, or to fashions that participate in the same vague cool that defines hip-hop music? Others make a whole lot of nonsense: “Hip-hop food”? “Hip-hop politics”? “Hip-hop intellectual”? And there’s even “hip-hop architecture.” What the hell is that? A house you build with a Hammer? This doesn’t happen with other genres. There’s no folk-music food or New Wave fashion, once you get past food for thought and skinny ties. There’s no junkanoo architecture. The closest thing to a musical style that does double-duty as an overarching aesthetic is punk, and that doesn’t have the same strict racial coding. On the one hand, you can point to this as proof of hip-hop’s success. The concept travels. But where has it traveled? The danger is that it has drifted into oblivion. The music originally evolved to paint portraits of real people and handle real problems at close range — social contract, anyone? — but these days, hip-hop mainly rearranges symbolic freight on the black starliner. Containers on the container ship are taken from here to there — and never mind the fact that they may be empty containers. Keep on pushin’ and all that, but what are you pushing against? As it has become the field rather than the object, hip-hop has lost some of its pertinent sting. And then there’s the question of where hip-hop has arrived commercially, or how fast it’s departing. The music industry in general is sliding, and hip-hop is sliding maybe faster than that. The largest earners earn large, but not at the rate they once did. And everyone beneath that upper level is fading fast. The other day, we ran into an old man who is also an old fan. He loves the Roots and what we do. Someone mentioned the changing nature of the pop-culture game, and it made him nostalgic for the soul music of his youth. “It’ll be back,” he said. “Things go in cycles.” But do they? If you really track the ways that music has changed over the past 200 years, the only thing that goes in cycles is old men talking about how things go in cycles. History is more interested in getting its nut off. There are patterns, of course, boom and bust and ways in which certain resources are exhausted. There are foundational truths that are stitched into the human DNA. But the art forms used to express those truths change without recurring. They go away and don’t come back. When hip-hop doesn’t occupy an interesting place on the pop-culture terrain, when it is much of the terrain and loses interest even in itself, then what? Back to John Bradford for a moment: I’m lucky to be here. That goes without saying, but I’ll say it. Still, as the Roots round into our third decade, we shoulder a strange burden, which is that people expect us to be both meaningful and popular. We expect that. But those things don’t necessarily work together, especially in the hip-hop world of today. The winners, the top dogs, make art mostly about their own victories and the victory of their genre, but that triumphalist pose leaves little room for anything else. Meaninglessness takes hold because meaninglessness is addictive. People who want to challenge this theory point to Kendrick Lamar, and the way that his music, at least so far, has some sense of the social contract, some sense of character. But is he just the exception that proves the rule? Time will tell. Time is always telling. Time never stops telling.

The gun violence that plagues Black America has been brought front and center. It is very clear to many that the broader society does not care about young black boys and girls dying in a barrage of gun violence. It is a fact that has been present in the black community for a long time; black life is not as valuable as it should be. Gunland goes behind the epidemic of gun violence in Chicago beyond the headlines.

SD of GBE spoke about the third installment of his Life of a Savage mixtape series in this clip from his exclusive interview with VladTV. He explained that the mixtape is based off of the rough lifestyle that he is accustomed to in Chicago. When asked about his views on what a savage really is, SD stated that a savage in his eyes is an animal, or a man who doesn't care about anything and is willing to do anything. He went on to detail some of the songs he has on the mixtape with Young Chop, and how he's never really put any thought into signing to a particular label outside of GBE.

"Benz Friends (Watchutola)" is the collaboration with Andre 3000 off his sophomore album Honest, and features a mash-up of different generations from Atlanta's Dungeon Family unit. Even if you're not a fan of Future, the cut is worth checking out for 3 Stacks' verse alone. After all these years, Andre is still one of the most nimble and talented of his craft, and even Future tries to emulate his acrobatic flow. Listen below as Andre 3000 and Future wax poetic about the trappings of materialism and the things they don't care for much. And, after a few listens, there's a good chance the hooks in this song will be stuck in your head.
The way skate legend Lance Mountain used to mismatch his Jordans comes into play with the new Nike SB x Air Jordan I collaboration. Coming in both black and white colorways, the sneakers feature an upper with accents in varsity red on one shoe and royal blue on the other. When properly worn in from skating, the black paint treatment fades away to reveal more red and blue shining through on the shoes' upper. You can learn more about this collab with Lance Mountain in the video below, and look out for these kicks to release on June 7th.

Duke freshman Jabari Parker sat down with Sports Illustrated’s Jeff Benedict to discuss why he’s decided to forego his three years of college eligibility to enter the 2014 NBA Draft. It was not a decision that came easily to the 6-8 standout from Chicago. Parker and Benedict chat about his decision, and Jabari added a long explanation for Sports Illustrated along with the video of their conversation. As Jabari wrote, it was not an easy decision, but it came down to two things which ultimately led him to the decision: I haven’t consulted many people during this process. I talked to my parents, though. They simply said it was my decision and they would stand behind me either way. They just want me to be happy. Ultimately, I boiled my decision down to two simple questions: Which environment — college or the NBA — offers me the best opportunity to grow as a basketball player? Which environment — college or the NBA — offers me the best opportunity to grow and develop off the court? The answer to both questions is undeniably the NBA. Parker was listed as going No. 3 in Jonathan Givony’s latest mock draft for DraftExpress.com. Chad Ford has him ranked as the No. 2 prospect for ESPN (Insider only). During his lone season at Duke, Parker shot better than 47 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from beyond the three-point arc while averaging 19.1 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 steals in 30.7 minutes of action.

Detroit rap iconoclast Danny Brown continues to spin gold from his acclaimed LP Old, this time in the form of a single (and appropriately moody music video) for album standout "25 Bucks." The hypnotic Purity Ring instrumental provides a perfect backdrop for Danny’s heart-rending rhymes and Megan James’ ghostly chorus vocals, and the single comes backed by two bonus remixes of Old banger "Dip" by UK bass master Preditah and SMOG producer/DJ Noah D, making it a must-have for any Bruiser.
