Trae Tha Truth is a well-regarded veteran of the Houston rap underground. He used to be half of the duo ABN — Assholes By Nature, great name — with his cousin Z-Ro. These days, he persistently cranks out muttery fast-rap jams and occasionally takes advantage of his considerable rap-world connections. Every so often, Trae rounds … More »
Fridays may be a little less frenzied now. With the release of Teyana Taylor’s new K.T.S.E. last week, a wild monthlong parade of albums produced by Kanye West has concluded at last. Taylor’s project marked the fifth and theoretically final LP out of Kanye’s orbit in as many weeks. More »
Maybach Music founder Rick Ross has linked up with longtime friend and collaborator Future on a new track, “Green Gucci Suit.” The two internationally revered rappers have appeared on a multitude of singles together, whether featured on tracks like those on DJ Khaled‘s albums Grateful and Major Key, on tracks like Ace Hood’s “Bugatti,” or supporting one another on albums, like Future’s appearances on Rick Ross’ 2017 Rather You Than Me.
“Green Gucci Suit” opens with an ’80s, Miami Vice feel, a potential nod at its upcoming feature on Ross’ Port of Miami II. The album, announced in March, will be the follow up to Ross’ debut 2006 album Port of Miami, with a release date to be announced.
Rick Ross just contributed a bonus track to Future’s Superfly soundtrack , and now Future is returning the favor by hopping on Ricky’s new track “Green Gucci Suit.” The song is presumably a single from Ross’s upcoming album Port Of Miami 2: Born to Kill, a sequel to his 2006 debut LP Port Of … More »

HARD Summer is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming edition of the festival, led by one of the event’s most memorable lineups to date. Slated for August 4 – 5, and returning to a familiar venue at Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway, HARD’s flagship event is sticking to their tried and true playbook of marquee dance and hip-hop match ups, laced together by the underground’s finest newcomer talents, dropping off a lineup of over 70 acts. Best of all, 2018 now is officially the year of the back-to-back.
Marshmello, Travis Scott, Louis The Child and Porter Robinson‘s Virtual Self project are all tapped for headlining duties, along with MØ, Louis Vuitton’s newly-signed artistic director and moonlighting DJ Virgil Abloh, and Flosstradamus. In between massive headliners and top-card highlights that include Rick Ross, Slushii, Ekali, San Holo and more, the talent roster is littered with never-before-seen back-to-back performances that could honestly form their own insane lineup.
Diplo and Dillon Francis will share the stage for the first time, and Jauz will join Zeds Dead for a co-headlining slot, Snails and Kill The Noise are apparently allowed to perform together, despite how dangerous that sounds. Four Color Zack and DJ Craze are bringing their 2¢ project to HARD Summer as well as Escapade, Ardalan and Walker & Royce‘s Dirtybird mashup. Borgore and Getter are pairing for an unholy union, and Baauer and A-Trak are joining for another one of their rare tag-team bouts. And these are just the back-to-back sets.
Additional firepower from Mija, k?d, Tokimonsta, Madam X, Joyryde and many more round out one of HARD’s best bookings to date. And with the festival boasting added amenities, updated safety and comfort features, plus a hilarious trailer that pins Diplo as the “Dawson’s Creek looking motherf****r” he is, we’re looking at what could be the most over-the-top edition of HARD Summer yet.

Erotic-funk singer/songwriter, Miguel‘s fourth studio album, War & Leisure, is likely his most conscious, inventive body of work to date. Miguel is most widely known for his massive R&B ballad “Adorn,” which won him a Grammy in 2013. The track was released on his 2012 Kaleidoscope Dream, the LP that signified Miguel’s leap towards a more overtly psychedelic variation of his Pop/R&B production style.
In addition to his emblematic crooning of celestial bedroom sagas, we hear Miguel fighting to remain positive amid the tempestuous political climate in War & Leisure — title befitting. The album sees these two tones merge most discernibly in “Banana Clip,” wherein underneath the overtly phallic overtures, Miguel references the looming prospect of nuclear war with North Korea: “M16 on my lap / We hear missiles in the sky.”
Miguel also takes moments, specifically in the funkadelic, “Told You So,” to channel one his most salient influences, Prince, with lush, throbbing vocals and enrapturing eroticism. The production itself affords War & Leisure an air of wavy psychedelia, brought on by abundant reverb within both vocals and instrumentals, breathy dissonance, and distortion pedals galore — most evident in “Criminal,” featuring Rick Ross.
