Diplo tapped as executive producer on LeBron James’ debut album ‘King’

Diplo tapped as executive producer on LeBron James’ debut album ‘King’Dipbron

With LeBron James‘ move to LA, his introduction to Hollywood was inevitable. While the 15-time All Star will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2005, his itinerary remains packed with a handful of new entertainment ventures via his production imprint, SpringHill Entertainment. First came the announcement that the mythical, long-awaited Space Jam 2 is finally underway, and now LeBron has announced his debut rap album, King, is landing this fall, executive produced by none other than Diplo.

LeBron’s foray into the rap world makes sense—he’s made a habit of previewing massive rap cuts on his Instagram stories, he’s been known to break out a quick Milly Rock while rubbing shoulder’s with hip-hop’s top dogs, and he actually served as A&R on 2 Chainz well-received Rap or Go to the League earlier this year. His link to Diplo also makes sense. The Mad Decent head honcho is one of the most in-demand pop producers of the moment with credits working alongside Beyoncé, Madonna, Justin Bieber, and more.

Diplo has kept tight lipped about working with the Lakers forward, though he recently commented,

“Being the LeBron James of EDM is hard work, but someone’s got to do it. But when the real LeBron called and asked if I could make rap beats, I figured I might as well try. It’s been really silly in the studio and Bron’s also been teaching me how to dribble with my left hand—pretty rad.”

Look for James’ debut album, King to hit streaming platforms later this year. See the full tracklist below.

King Tracklist:

  1. Akron’s Favorite Son
  2. Rings, Bitch (ft. Adele)
  3. Chris Bosh Swag (ft. Big Shaq and Oliver Tree)
  4. April Fool’s Day (prod. Diplo & Kenny Beats)
  5. They Don’t Want This Smoke
  6. Ty Lue The Truth (ft. Kevin Love)
  7. Free Throws
  8. Cleveland Come (ft. J. Cole and Future)
  9. David Stern’s Ferrari (ft. Stephen A. Smith)

Good Morning Mix: Rock with A-Trak’s Holy Ship! Rap Party Mix

Good Morning Mix: Rock with A-Trak’s Holy Ship! Rap Party MixA Trak Holy Ship Hip Hop

Party master and scratch luminary, A-Trak shows his versatility and relevance in this lava “Holy Ship Rap Party 2019” mix of turn-of-the-millennium rap mixed with newer hip-hop and electronic goodies. For example, the Fools Gold head honcho hits a groove towards the beginning with Clipse’s “Grinding,” Jay-Z‘s “La La La,” a bootleg of Missy Elliot‘s “Work It,” an edit of J-Kwon’s “Tipsy,” Mary J. Blige‘s “Real One,” and Panjabi MC featuring Jay-Z’s “Beware.” That groove is continued and further expanded on; however, those tracks set the tone for a modern-day dose of nostalgia.

While listening through some of hip-hop’s finest products, A-Trak adds more modern elements with Kodak BlackChildish GambinoLil Uzi Vert, and more while mixing electronic elements from Daft Punk, GesaffelsteinJusticeYehme2, TroyBoi and others. This is a certified must-listen for fans of hip-hop and music in general, directly from one of the best improv party DJs to grace the stage.

Chance The Rapper announces new album due this summer

Chance The Rapper announces new album due this summerChance The Rapper Live Lost Lake Lineup

On this third mixtape, 2016’s critically lauded Coloring BookChance The Rapper rewrote the rules at the Grammy’s, grabbing seven total nominations and taking home three gramophones, including Best New Artist and Best Rap Album, without technically moving a single unit. Now, he has officially confirmed the delivery of his next studio project, and if his third was the charm, his fourth might just be an instant-classic waiting to be heard.

A hard release date has not yet been revealed, though Chano and his manager both confirmed a July release on social media. In a video posted to Instagram, Chance, beaming, gives fans a quick look at the busy life of a budding star—he’s preparing for his wedding, actively involved in Chicago’s politics, his non-profit’s work, and of course studio time, all accounting for the three year gap between LPs.

“Life is good, you can get that sh*t when I’m ready,”

“…July, though.”

In those three years, Chance has logged studio time with Anderson .Paak, Kanye West and more, though it is currently unclear if July’s release will be the Chicago emcees’ highly anticipated joint project Good Ass Job. Interestingly though, in 2017 Chance was quick to publicly clarify after winning his Grammy Awards that his first three projects would more accurately be described as mixtapes, not albums.

J. Cole drops first single of 2019, menacing T-Minus produced, ‘MIDDLE CHILD’

J. Cole drops first single of 2019, menacing T-Minus produced, ‘MIDDLE CHILD’J Cole Live 2018

J. Cole has released his first track of 2019. In typical Cole fashion, fans were bombarded with the announcement of “MIDDLE CHILD” with a seemingly out of nowhere clearing of his Instagram feed, replaced with posts promoting his new song. Produced by T-Minus, the track follows the release of the North Carolina rapper’s highly anticipated album K.O.D. in 2018.

“MIDDLE CHILD” addresses common themes that have arisen throughout J. Cole’s career, including his quitting the rap game (which, through this single’s exercise it becomes clear he’s not quite ready to stop rapping just yet). Cole also explores impressively beautiful metaphors—a trait that has become integral in his brand—this time, comparing his own rap career to being an awkward middle child between two generations of rhymers. The new track is Cole’s first solo single since 2013. While it’s unclear if “MIDDLE CHILD” is a signal for more music down the line from the famously platinum-with-no-features rapper, if this was in fact the first single from a larger project, this would be the beginning of J. Cole’s first traditional album roll out since Born Sinner.

Hip-hop is America’s genre — accounts for nearly a quarter of all U.S. music streams in 2018

Hip-hop is America’s genre — accounts for nearly a quarter of all U.S. music streams in 2018Travis Scott Live 2

Hip-hop is indisputably America’s genre.

The designation is affirmed by a comprehensive year-end report published by market monitor BuzzAngle, which tracks music consumption data. Far from a fad, hip-hop comes out on top again as the most streamed genre this year, with rap singles consuming 24.7 percent of the streaming market in 2018, or a quarter of all streamed tracks for the year. 2018 shows continued year over year growth for the genre, which previously consumed 20.9 percent of single streams in 2017. The report categorizes urban songs as a combination of rap, hip-hop, and R&B, all amounting to the country’s most streamed genre, beating out pop music three years in a row.

Other trends that have emerged are the rise of pop and the decline of rock. In 2017, rock was right behind hip-hop with a 19.8 percent consumption share, while in 2018, pop overtook rock to take a 19 percent market share. Rock precipitously declined to only a 11.7 percent market share in 2018, even in a year when highly marketable albums from Greta Van Fleet, Smashing Pumpkins, and Stone Temple Pilots among others saw major label releases.

These trends are similarly reflected in album streaming patterns for 2017 and 2018. Although rock album streams superseded rap album streams in 2017, 2018 was a year of major growth for hip-hop and a considerable decline for rock. In a year when everyone from Travis Scott to The Carters, Drake to Anderson .Paak dropped full-length projects, it comes as no surprise that hip-hop dominated nearly a quarter of the streaming market in 2018.

Las Vegas nightlife hub, Hakkasan, has a proven knack for pairing top EDM talent with the most in-demand hip-hop acts in the game right now, but they’re one-upping themselves with their latest booking. Dim Mak kingpin Steve Aoki is primed to take over the club on November 15 with one of rap’s most sought-after performers of the moment, Lil Uzi Vert, for the duo’s first ever co-headlining performance. While Uzi and Aoki have yet to officially collaborate, a shared stage in Las Vegas this month could give way to a studio link sometime down the line.

Lil Uzi Vert and Steve Aoki’s shared headline performance comes amid a packed month of entertainment on the Las Vegas strip. Heavy hitters like NGHTMRE, Kaskade, Tiësto, and Matoma are all also slated to perform at Hakkasan and the club’s affiliated properties across the month of November.
