Coachella 2019 rumors ensue, with suspected headliners: Childish Gambino, Justin Timberlake, and Kanye WestCoachella 1

Unsurprisingly, over six months in advance, the eternally trendy Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is already garnering a swarm of rumors regarding its 2019 headliners.

The scoop comes from HITS Daily Double, as the outlet recently reported via anonymous, “informed sources” that the imminent installment (set to run April 12-21) will house headlining performances from Childish Gambino (Friday), Justin Timberlake (Saturday), and Kanye West (Sunday). The artists themselves have yet to comment on these claims.

Coachella 2018 proved particularly eventful, with notable performances from both Beyonce, who brought with her over 100 dancers onstage during her headlining set—in addition to a cameo from husband Jay-Z—and Whethan, the 19-year-old Boy Wonder of EDM, who personally flew out the yodeling boy internet sensation for a special guest performance, which quickly went viral on a sundry of social media channels.

After adding Phoenix to join its lineup just yesterday, the Austin City Limits festival announced today that indeed Lil Wayne will join Justice, Metallica, Travis Scott and Arctic Monkeys to headline the festival this weekend.

Wayne’s arrival comes immediately after the announcement that, due to a newly obtained foot injury, Childish Gambino needed to postpone the remaining dates on his This Is America tour until later in the year — effectively cancelling his top billing at the Texas festival. It is a timely arrival for Lil Wayne, as the rapper celebrates his 36th birthday with the release of his long-awaited Tha Carter V album drop on the same day.

Fans of Childish Gambino are in the midst of getting what the artist has said will be the project’s last and final tour — but there apparently could be new music coming down the pipe from the “Redbone” hitmaker. During a recent tour stop in New York’s Madison Square Garden, Gambino performed a massive unreleased track for the lucky audience. “This is some new shit I’ve been working on,” the artist told the crowd before launching into the soulful four-to-the-floor ID.

Despite Donald Glover‘s earlier promises to eventually retire the Childish Gambino project, there’s now another unreleased song to add to a growing stack of future heat that reportedly includes an entire joint album with Chance The Rapper. Until Glover decides to discontinue the venture, fans will no doubt be waiting to gobble up the latest and greatest from his musical alter ego.

Watch Stephen Colbert break down Chance the Rapper’s ‘Favorite Song’

Watch Stephen Colbert break down Chance the Rapper’s ‘Favorite Song’Stephen Colbert Chance The Rapper

Stephen Colbert recently broke down the rhyme and rhythm scheme of a Chance the Rapper verse for Rolling Stone. Being a Lord of the Rings enthusiast, Colbert compares Chance the Rapper’s “Favorite Song” featuring Childish Gambino, with JRR Tolkien, as well as the Victorian-era theatrical team Gilbert and Sullivan. With Colbert’s authentic enthusiasm and clear explanation of thought, the video gracefully places Chance’s poetic artistry with some of the most notable storytellers in history.

The specific verse the Late Night host discussed is “Bang bang bang [sic], skeet skeet skeet // She do that thing for three retweets // the album feel like ’92, now that take ball ‘fore he three-peat // Chance on acid, cruising on that LSD // Asked Joseph about my deal; he turned and said, ‘Hell yeah, let’s eat!’”

Colbert discusses the rare staccato flow and internal rhyme scheme, racking his brain for where he’s heard that before. “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General,” from Gilbert and Sullivan’s 1879 opera The Pirates of Penzance was the first comparison. The second was the rare rhyme and rhythm scheme that influenced the rest of  Tolkien’s iconic Lord of the Rings series.

Childish Gambino has unveiled an animated music video stuffed to the brim with celebrity cameos for his hazy crooner, “Feels Like Summer.” The track is one of two included in Gambino’s Summer Pack, a two track EP released in July. The “Feels Like Summer” video shows an animated Gambino strolling casually under a golden hour sky, subtly bopping to the song’s soft groove while top-tier celebrities and artists pop up around him. Encounters include Drake biking after Future, Beyonce wearing a “R.I.P Fredo Santana” shirt, and… Kanye crying in a MAGA hat, while being comforted by Michelle Obama.

Fans will have to wait for the artist’s anticipated fourth album to see if the smooth, dreamy feels of Summer Pack were a sign of sonic things to come. In the meantime, we’ll be busy soaking in these gorgeous Justin Richburg animated visuals and trying to catch all these cameos.

Louis Futon flips Childish Gambino’s ‘Summertime Magic’

Louis Futon flips Childish Gambino’s ‘Summertime Magic’Futon

It’s been a few weeks, so its about time someone flipped Childish Gambino‘s “Summertime Magic,” and who else to do it better than Louis Futon? The certified flip-master celebrates his birthday by chopping up this new one from Gambino, off of the rapper’s recent surprise twofer Summer Pack. In the latest addition to his ever-so-popular video series, Futon allows viewers to follow his production process of cutting up the track’s melody, adding drums and bells, before getting a little weird on the second verse.

The Philadelphia-native beatmaker has been out on his Fall On Me tour this summer, following an infectious, jazzy single of the the same name featuring BXRBER. His last flip came by way of  J. Cole‘s “Kevin’s Heart,” though recently Futon has had his eye on Childish, working on another Gambino heater, “Telegraph Ave,” earlier this year with Louis The Child. Gambino’s “Summertime Magic” has already been subject to heavy repeated listens, though now with a new take from Louis Futon, the track’s shelf life just extended well past the summer swelter.

Childish Gambino to host three concurrent ‘Summertime Starts Here’ events this weekend in New York, Los Angeles, and London

New York, Los Angeles, and London will serve as the sites of three concurrent Childish Gambino events the weekend of July 14 – 15, as the “This Is America” producer brings his enigmatic Summertime Starts Here event experience series to each city in staggered intervals.

Summertime Starts Here initially debuted in New York on July 13 at Union Square, and will remain in the ‘Big Apple’ into Saturday, July 14, where the second day will commence at Fort Greene Park from 12-4 PM EST. Los Angeles will also receive the Summertime Starts Here experience on July 14. The West Coast edition of the event will take place at California’s Santa Monica pier from 12-4 PM PST. On Sunday, July 15, Gambino’s nomadic fan event will relocate to Fairfax High School from 12-4 PM PST.

Last but certainly not least, London will also be privy to Summertime Starts Here, with the UK version occupying Gunnersbury Park from 1-10 PM GMT. Although Gambino shared little detail about the specifics of the Summertime Starts Here series, each event will supposedly be free of charge. It is unlikely that Gambino will perform live in each city, given the overlap of the three events, though if any mortal man could do it, it would be Donald Glover somehow.

The Summertime Starts Here run follows the July 11 release of Gambino’s new EP, Summer Pack.

Mr. Carmack releases earth-trembling, instrumental rework of Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’

Mr. Carmack releases earth-trembling, instrumental rework of Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’Jacob Avanzato Carmack

Mr. Carmack has released an edit of Childish Gambino‘s “This Is America,” maintaining subtle pieces of the original’s framework, while keeping the new set list weapon a strictly instrumental hay maker. Playing with a minimal bass beat and open sonic space, the original rework was anchored to Gambino’s apathetic tone, though the Hawaii-based producer dropped a completely the instrumental edit as the final product, and the result is a club-rattling heater.

With trembling low-end appeal and metallic synth stacks, Mr. Carmack’s rendition of the dominating Billboard chart topper will certainly begin to creep into heavy festival play this season. Mr. Carmack is known for his versatility in combining hip-hop beats with electronic elements, and Childish Gambino’s incredibly successful commercial outing has proven to be a perfect canvas for Carmack’s underground touch.
