Video: Jay Electronica Passes Torch To Joey Bada$$ In Croatia

So much here. So much. Jay Electronica meeting the Pro Era crew in Croatia at a video shoot to tell Joey Bada$$ that his name rings bells in London. Then, if that wasn’t forceful enough, he advises him to ignore anyone ‘taking shots’ to bring him down. The rap world is aware, and they’re proud. Also, really fine women in Croatia.

Video: A$AP Ferg On Pitchfork’s Over/Under

I don’t know what’s better about this episode of “Over/Under”: that A$AP Ferg wasn’t aware that Jim Carrey had already played the Joker when he suggested it would be a breakout role OR that he burnt both of his feet playing frisbee on hot coals. He’s got a future in this if Jim Jones is any example of unintentionally hilarious Harlem rappers. Check the review of Ferg’s Trap Lord.

Album Review: Drake — “Nothing Was The Same”


Artist: Drake Album: Nothing Was The Same Label: Cash Money Records Release Date: September 24, 2013 It’s lonely at the top. “No new friends.” “Versace, Versace”. “Y.O.L.O.” Over the past six months, Drake’s music has been nonstop fuel for memes and Instagram hashtags, so it makes sense that he’d rather spend some time by himself than participate in a culture he’s largely contributed to. After all, you don’t sh*t where you eat. (more…)

Video: Kanye West Performs For Le Grand Journal

Veuillez installer Flash Player pour lire la vidéo Le Grand Journal du 23/09/13 – La Suite avec Kanye West A nationally renowned French talk show? Yea, why not. Kanye is making his Euro tour count with unique stops at places like this one. First sit through an interview with a Buddhist French author on the path to enlightenment. Then, listen to Kanye rap about Black Skinheads (starts at ~13:15 mark), strange fruit and other very American things. (I wonder what the Dalai Lama would think about “Bound 2″?)

Video: Earl Sweatshirt’s “Doris” Release Show And Recap

The Cult of Earl is in full force, with kids wearing lippy masks in tribute to the young rhyming phenom. Something about this corny video almost diminishes the album it’s meant to advertise but not much could do that, ultimately. The reaction to Frank Ocean here, though, shows just how much icon-making is happening in the mills of Odd Futurism.

“I know how to make ‘perfect’.” Mr. West is in the building. And he’s doing interviews. Zane Lowe sits down with Kanye for an exclusive talk with the now-public artists. After years of avoiding interviews, it seems Yeezy’s found his stride with careful press appointments like this one. It must be the Dad thing.
