Mac Miller died of an apparent overdose last month at the tragically young age of 26. And on Halloween, his family and friends are coming together to honor his life and legacy with a star-studded tribute concert in Los Angeles called Mac Miller: A Celebration Of Life.

YBN Nahmir is an 18-year-old rapper who comes from Alabama, lives in Los Angeles, and sounds like he’s from the Bay Area. He’s good, and he’s going places. Nahmir’s career started about a year ago when the video for his song “Rubbin Off The Paint” went viral. But he doesn’t credit that song with his … More »
The Bay Area rap giant E-40 has been ahead of the curve for something like 25 years, which is simply staggering. He’s been a regional giant, an inventor of slang, a flow pioneer, and a chameleon, able to latch onto new sounds with a fluidity that basically nobody from his generation can equal. And he … More »
Call me crazy, readers; but I’ve got a feeling there’s something big coming down the pipe soon from Donald “Childish Gambino” Glover! The American rapper hasn’t really toured since “going soul” on us back in late 2016 with the release of his third album, Awaken, My Love (naturally, I just assumed he’d gone the James Murphy route and retired — because, let’s face it: for most artists, three albums is fucking PLENTY.)
But then, all-a-sudden: BAM. Glover is back on the live scene like…I don’t know…some kind of…really, really passionate live performer! In fact, he already announced a string of dates in September with Rae Sremmurd, claiming there’d be some “new music” on offer.
And now, we get word that he’ll be heading right back onto the open road literally TWO DAYS LATER with none other than Vince “Big Fish” Staples. The pair’s shows together kick off on October 2 in San Jose, California and go on to include the other four cities that “really matter” as far as the United States government is secretly-concerned: L.A., Phoenix, Denver, and Nashville.
Check out the full listing of Childish Gambino dates with both Staples and Sremmurd, and re-familiarize yourself with his recent smooth-soul vocal sound down below. That way, you’ll be back up-to-speed by the time Glover likely completely flips your shit with an entirely new musical aesthetic this fall.

Vince Staples was one of many performers at Coachella this weekend, and after his set, he had a typically off-the-rails conversation to Nadeska Alexis of Everyday Struggle, who was handling interviews for the festival’s official live stream. A few minutes into the interview, without any prompting from Alexis, Staples began talking about R. Kelly, calling … More »
Kygo‘s Coachella performance exceeded our wildest expectations. Not only did he bring out an impressive slew of artists for live performances, including Parson James for a live rendition of “Stole The Show,” the Norweign DJ stunned in bringing out Jamie Foxx for the two to perform a live rendition of Kygo’s Marvin Gaye “Sexual Healing” remix — which was certainly all the healing we needed and more.

Kendrick comes out for Vince Staples
Vince Staples was in top form. A fiery testament to his place among the modern rap pantheon, Staples wrapped up his set with his Big Fish Theory song “Yeah Right” and managed to surprise the entire crowd by saving the best for last, bringing out King Kendrick for his almighty verse and to take his place atop the hip-hop throne.

Originally reported by the Desert Sun, it appears some Coachella attendees were delayed two hours in entering the festival. Though it seemed to be due to miscommunication amongst festival security, according to the security, the delay was neither their fault nor the festival’s groundskeeping of which they originally claimed was the initial culprit.

Ah yes, and last but not least, the pinnacle of meme culture, Whethan brought out the Walmart Yodeling kid in a turn of events that will go down in Coachella history. Though the two didn’t collaborate on a new EDM rendition of the track, we peg this as the most ambitious crossover of all time, so take that Marvel.

Two years ago, the rap internet lost its mind over an instantly-viral video of a young white mother reading the lyrics to Vince Staples’ “Norf Norf,” a song she’d heard on her local top-40 radio station while driving her daughter to school, and openly sobbing about how objectionable those lyrics were.
