Tyler, the Creator gets jazzy on two new latest singles

Let’s face it, Tyler, the Creator is suaver than most of us will ever be.

Every day, the rapper reveals small subtleties about himself that set him apart from the pack, like how just this weekend he re-opened the Los Angeles Golf Wang store, all designed by Tyler himself, how he likes driving fast cars, or how his two latest tracks are spaced-out jazz gems.

Just this week, Tyler released a new song called “PUFF,” an instrumental driving cut that reimagines Tyler’s Cherry Bomb track “Blow My Load.” “PUFF” is one of the lightest reworks Tyler’s shared with fans to date — at least it was until Tyler followed up on the track just two hours later with his most mellow song yet.

“BUCKET” is just the latest loosie from the artist, and follows a long string of tracks that include “435,” “GELATO,” “PEACH FUZZ,” “QUARTZ,” and a few remixes.

Eminem strikes back with surprise full-length, ‘Kamikaze,’ takes aim at numerous rappers in scalding new material

Eminem strikes back with surprise full-length, ‘Kamikaze,’ takes aim at numerous rappers in scalding new materialEminem Kamikaze Min

In a time where mumble rap is the mainstream as melodies, harmonies, and brands seem to matter more than the meaning of lyrics, Eminem strikes back with a scathing lyrical full-length, Kamikaze, out of the blue, executively produced by Dr. Dre.

The intro track, The Ringer, wittily attacks media for his less than stellar reviews on his previous album, Revival, dropped eight months prior. Em’s specialty is rap battling, so of course 8 Mile’s own had to counter. Though, from listening to Kamikaze, it seems like the media turning Eminem mad got him back to destroying anyone in his path with his legendary wordplay and lyrical prowess.

A good example of his high caliber rhyming is when he goes after this era’s popular hip-hop music:  “Get this f***in’ audio out my Audi yo, adios // I can see why people like Lil Yachty, but not me though.” Em goes back full-circle later in the verse, claiming that’s simply his opinion and if it were up to him, there’s a lot he would shake up. Who wouldn’t? “Not Alike” featuring Royce da 5’9″ also finds the Detroit rapper taking aim and spraying. With the same vocal cadence to Migos‘ “Bad and Boujee” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, Marshal Mathers and Royce go on to attack the conscious desire for uniformity.

On “Fall” Em attacked Joe Budden, Tyler, The Creator (amidst homophobic slurs), and the Grammys while celebrating his inspiration of some of todays hip-hop geniuses such as Hopsin, K. Dot, and Logic. Eminem is touted as this generation’s greatest battle rapper, and with everything happening around him, the seasoned emcee pulled out all the stops on his surprise new LP.

Low End Theory unplugged its sound system for the final time with a packed house on Wednesday, August 8. The bittersweet event brought droves of avid supporters for the send off, and even featured an Odd Future reunion. The closing of LA’s beloved club night went out with a bang, with Tyler, the Creator set to headline. In a twist of sorts, a mini-reunion ensued with Earl Sweatshirt, Syd, Hodgy Beats, and more. The group’s former factotum went on to mention The Airliner, where the beloved experimental hip-hop and electronic club night took place every Wednesday for over a decade, was in fact where Odd Future had their first show.

Attendees of the sold out event had a chance to hear Wolf Haley’s version of Gucci Mane‘s “Lemonade,” and “Orange Juice.” Biz Markie was there to capture the visuals.

Oh, and A$AP Rocky showed up too. Low End’s send off was quite the affair. Tyler and Rocky’s club appearance was closely followed by a new drop from the two rappers in the new clip for “See You Again” from 2017’s Flower Boy. Stirring anticipation for a collaborative project between the A$AP Mob and Odd Future frontmen is starting to build, and hopefully it materializes soon.

Gear up for Lollapalooza with DA’s 12 most anticipated performancesLollapalooza Chhicago 2018

Lollapalooza is this weekend in Chicago, and Dancing Astronaut is hosting a live stream of the music festival.

With headliners such as The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, and Travis Scott, the festival’s 27th year in existence should be one for the ages. After changing to a four-day event in 2016, Lollapalooza is easily one of the top-attended music festivals in the United States.

Below are 12 of the most anticipated Lollapalooza performances from an electronic music perspective.


REZZ

“Space mom” is a must-see for any festival. She’s performing Thursday at 7:15 p.m. CDT, and her new album, Certain Kind Of Magic, comes out Friday on mau5trap. REZZ was just featured on the cover of DJ Mag‘s August issue.

ODESZA

After killer sets at Red Rocks and Panorama, ODESZA looks to bring their massive live-electronic show with their big synths, drum line, and stellar light show. The duo is the headliner of EDM at Lollapalooza, and there are rumors of a potential Foreign Family festival in 2019.

Rusko

After beating cancer, the British dubstep pioneer is back in action. He dropped his Has Made Five More Songs EP, this year, and the flag-bearer of contemporary dubstep knows how to throw down, recently coming off supporting Zeds Dead in London. Dubstep whomps at 6 p.m. CDT Friday? Yes, please.

Billie Eilish

The 16-year-old from California had her debut EP, Don’t Smile at Me, rank on Billboard‘s top 200 list. The distraught yet swagged-out teen recently had a tarantula emerge from her mouth for the new single, you should see me in a crown. Imagine what the eclectic and eccentric young trendsetter will bring to the stage.

Dillon Francis

The budding actor, director, and TV writer is also one of the most sought-after festival DJs. With six releases from his upcoming WUT WUT album on Francis’ new IDGAFOS imprint, working with Comedy Central on Living The Dream, his own show Like & Subscribe, and One Deeper Talks with DJ Hanzel; EDM’s funny man has been busy this summer.  Playing Friday at 8:30 p.m. CDT, Francis’ live set will be a perfect way to start the weekend shenanigans.

Tycho

Cool your jets to the easy-going electronic ambiance of Scott Hansen aka Tycho. The musician, composer, producer, songwriter, photographer, and designer is a true embodiment of an artist. With a variety of genre’s at Lollapalooza, Tycho will be a nice escape into the serene 9 p.m. CDT on Thursday.

Post Malone

With one of Billboard‘s top albums for the past two months, beerbongs & bentleys, Malone is a must-see. His happy-go-lucky attitude, infectious smile, and daydreaming vibe will create an ambiance of love, partying, and good harmony.

Illenium

Future bass maven, Nicholas D. Miller, will put on a beautiful set with big synths 7:15 p.m. CDT Saturday. He’s been diving into harder productions, recently teaming up with Excision on their new track, “Gold (Stupid Love)” featuring Shallows. Last month, Illenium released a massive 15-track remix package for his 2017 Awake album.

Chromeo

Having released their fifth studio album, Head Over Heals, this summer, the veteran FUNKLORDZ look towards filling the electro-funk void. After cancelling shows earlier in July due to mental health issues, the duo is back in action and will not disappoint fans of funk, dance & hip-hop.

Tyler, The Creator

He just released a new music video with A$AP Rocky for their single, “Potato Salad.” The Odd Future fashion, lifestyle, and content icon finally received critic recognition on his Flower Boy album last year. His set is sure to be one of a kind.

Galantis

The live electronic duo from Sweden will keep spirits uplifted with melodies and drops a-plenty. According to their Twitter, they’ve also got something special planned for Lollapalooza.

Zedd

Germany and pop music’s EDM headliner and Billboard chart-topper will not disappoint. He’s playing at 8:30 p.m. CDT on Saturday. His newest song is “Happy Now” featuring Elley Duhé.

Honorable mentions: Petit Biscuit, Malaa, Lykke Li, Goldlink, What So Not, Excision, Logic, The Weeknd, Khalid.

Tyler, The Creator isn’t showing any signs of stopping the consistent stream of remixes he’s been dropping this summer.

He’s just shared “BRONCO,” which is his own smooth new take on Drake and Lil Baby’s Harder Than Ever single “Yes Indeed.” Tyler raps a mile minute on “BRONCO,” managing to fit in references to Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Stevie Wonder and his cars in just 57 seconds.

“BRONCO” comes after Tyler’s recently shared remixes of songs from Prophet, Jacquees, and his own take on “Kids See Ghosts.”

Another day, another new Tyler, the Creator track — peep ‘PEACH FUZZ’

Tyler, the Creator is obviously on a considerable inspiration tear as of late with the release of his second new track in just as many days. The new drop, dubbed “PEACH FUZZ,” is Tyler’s take on a groovy new Mndsgn-produced track by recent Stones Throw Records signee, the soulful singer/songwriter Prophet’s “Wanna Be Your Man.”

Tyler’s Flower Boy is coming up on its first anniversary now. Since the critically acclaimed record’s release, he’s released a grip of quippy one-offs brimming with his own soul and pop culture references, including the originals “Ziploc,” “OKRA,” “Rose Tinted Cheeks,” and “435,” as well as remixes of Drake’s “Bring It Back,” Kids See Ghosts’ “Kids See Ghosts” (renamed “Crust In Their Eyes”), and, just yesterday, Jacquees’ “No Validation” (retitled “Gelato”).

Tyler, The Creator’s non-stop.

The rapper and singer continues to release loosies and freestyles one after the other since he premiered his last album, Flower Boy, mid-last year. Now, following his more recent take on Ye’s “Kids See Ghosts” Tyler’s dropped “Gelato.”

The latest track’s a new freestyle that uses Cash Money Records’ singer-songwriter Jacquees’ “No Validation” from the artist’s recent 4275 album. “Gelato” sees Tyler in his usual form — rapping and making quippy comments over a smooth beat about his affinity for fast cars, romance without borders,  Timothée Chalamet — this time in reference to Call Me By Your Name — and even That’s So Raven.

Tyler, the Creator freestyles over Kanye and Kid Cudi’s ‘Kids See Ghosts’ on new ‘CRUST IN THEIR EYES’

This post was originally published on this site

Tyler, the Creator‘s on a roll, having been sharing outtakes for the better part of the last year from his Flower Boy recording sesh, and sprees that have followed since, left and right, pretty much since his critically acclaimed album dropped. His latest is in coincidence with a month of G.O.O.D Music Fridays, as he’s shared a new version of Kanye West and Kid Cudi‘s recent Kids See Ghost album title track, dubbing the new version “CRUST IN THEIR EYES.”

Tyler took to Twitter to share how the track from his friend and colleague, Ye, came to be before sharing, revealing he made it in just one hour:

With the same passionate and self-aware MO that listeners have come to associate with the rapper over the last few years, the former Odd Future proponent comes through as characteristically clever and collected on his “CRUST IN THEIR EYES,” remix, doing his peers’ work considerable justice — with less than an hour of his creative attention.
