Diplo‘s tag line, “Random white dude be everywhere,” is no joke. From appearing in the new Detective Pikachu movie, to debuting the very first album as the production backbone of power trio, LSD, to working on the presumed last Major Lazer album, Diplo’s schedule this year indicates no idle hours.
And for his next trick, Diplo has rendezvoused with Madonna yet again, for her new track, “Future,” featuring Quavo, of Migos. This isn’t the first Diplo-assisted Madonna original, either. The Mad Decent maestro shared production credits with Sophie for Madonna’s cheeky, 2015 declaration, “Bitch I’m Madonna.” The first single from her forthcoming album, “Future” exudes a Caribbean dancehall style in a similar vein as Diplo’s radio-ready Major Lazer efforts. The impending album, Madame X, housed by Interscope Records, will be Madonna’s first in four years
There aren’t too many pieces of movie music more iconic that “Theme From Shaft.” In 1971, Isaac Hayes wrote the symphonic soul score for Shaft, the movie that arguably kicked off the blaxploitation boom. In doing so, Hayes essentially laid the foundation for how blaxploitation funk should sound: Dramatic orchestral strings, chicken-scratch guitars, … More »
Here’s one of those delightful stories where everyone involved looks like an asshole. Right now, as TMZ reports, Migos member Offset is wanted in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Police there have a warrant for his arrest, and they’re pursuing it as a felony. Last week, Offset was shopping for a baby stroller in a … More »
Earlier this year, Offset became the third and final member of the Migos to release a solo album. Offset’s Father Of 4, easily the best of the three solo Migo albums, featured a whole lot of guest stars. And the most noteworthy of them was Cardi B, his wife. Cardi and Offset, apparently … More »
It’s almost April 14 and for Game of Thrones fans, eyes have anxiously been fixated on that date as it marks the premiere of the final season of the hit HBO series. Surrounding this hype is a vast array of promo, of which includes a recent re-creation of the show’s iconic theme song in conjunction with Mountain Dew’s new Thrones-centric ad campaign.
The theme song “remix” consists of one lyric—”Dew,” eventually making way for Migos to hop in for some bars delivered from atop the iron throne. The “Dew” singers include NBA All-Star Joel Embiid, EDM power-duo The Chainsmokers, NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt jr, and more.
The Chainsmokers are clearly huge GOT fans themselves, paying tribute to the series during their Ultra Music Festival 2019 set (see the pair holding swords and playing an electronic cover of its theme at 1:11:30).
The biggest event of the year, the Kids’ Choice Awards, took place last night. And who better than Migos to ring in the occasion? Now, you might be wondering, “What song could they possibly perform?” Migos’ and Nickelodeon’s audiences don’t exactly overlap and I can’t imagine how they’d clean up a line like “Fuckin on … More »
Last month, the Migos member Offset released his debut solo album Father Of 4. It was a big deal, but not a huge deal. And yet Ellen DeGeneres basically devoted an entire show to Offset today. She gave him the full-court press. More »
Offset was supposed to cap off a year of extreme Migos saturation with his debut solo album last December, but the project was delayed for unspecified reasons. Two months later, it has arrived, completing a trilogy of Migos solo albums that began with Quavo’s negligible Quavo Huncho and continued with Takeoff’s only slightly … More »
Offset had a big night at the Grammys. He and wife Cardi B, one of the stars of the night, went through a public breakup in December. But they’re back together, and Offset was there to be a supportive presence and to pant on-camera while Cardi was performing. While the show … More »
