James Blake Previews Unreleased André 3000 Collab In Brooklyn

Andre 3000 doesn’t make music as frequently as he used to, so when he does appear on the scene, fans lose their minds. James Blake and Three Stacks collaborated earlier in the year on the instrumental track “Look Ma No Hands.” It appears the two artists pumped out more than one song during their studio time together, because Blake blessed fans with a preview of an unreleased Andre 3000 collaboration recently. 

Blake previewed the song while showcasing some new music in Brooklyn on Saturday. Fans in attendance recorded the song from their phone, although the audio is less than pristine. Three Stacks raps over a dark sounding electronic and pop beat. He employs a rapid flow as he enters the beat, wrapping his words around the thundering drums. As the beat builds around his words, Andre quickens the pace of his flow. By the time the claps are dropped on the beat, Andre begins to sing in the background. His croons slowly turn into a woman’s vocals before James Blake jumps back onto the hook. You can check out the Andre 3000 feature at the 7:45 mark, but the rest of the tracks are worth a listen as well. It’s been almost three years since Blake dropped his last album, The Colour in Anything, so a new project may be on the way soon.  Continue reading

T.I. Pays For His Sins In “The Amazing Mr. F*ck Up”

T.I.’s latest album Dime Trap brought fans even more maturity from the veteran rapper. T.I. has long ascended to the status of an OG by this point. Still, he was able to make music that was both appropriate for his age and contemporary for the youth. “The Amazing Mr. F*ck Up” is one of the songs on Dime Trap where T.I. fully embraces his O.G. status. He speaks from the perspective of a man that has wronged a woman before, and has learned from his mistakes. On “The Amazing Mr. F*ck Up,” T.I. walks listeners through his mess up, his inner thoughts, and his lessons learned.  Continue reading

Gesaffelstein Reveals Forthcoming Album ‘Hyperion’ & Album Art

Gesaffelstein is back in full force!

If the billboards weren’t a dead give away, or Gesaffelstein’s new single and music video for “Reset,” then this impactful image certainly will. At long last, the producer is making a comeback and the most grand indicator comes in the form of the album cover for his forthcoming album titled Hyperion.

Gesaffelstein signed with Columbia Records earlier this year, and fellow artists and fans alike were instantly hyped. Long before that, his debut album Aleph was released in 2013. His work has remained a staple in dance music all along and we’ve inevitably felt the void during his extended absence. Finally, the wait is over. Continue reading

Kayzo Is The Latest To Flip Skrillex’s Remix Of “SICKO MODE”

Skrillex put out his “SICKO MODE” remix just about two weeks ago and it’s safe to say it wasn’t universally liked by fans. A Whethan flip a couple days later made up for it a bit, but now Kayzo has thrown his hat into the ring with this hybrid bass/psy banger.

It’s not a “full” track per se, more of a DJ tool at just 2 minutes 20 seconds, but it’s got two full drops and still manages to incorporate vocals from both Scott and Drake. The combination of psytrance and dubstep is classic Kayzo, so fans should be pleased with the outcome regardless. Continue reading

Meek Mill’s “Championships” Debuts Atop Billboard 200

Meek Mill’s latest project, CHAMPIONSHIPS was as anticipated as the rapper’s major label debut. The project served as his first album since his release from prison earlier this year. The projections made for his first-week sales continuously increased as the week went by. Today, the rapper earns his second chart-topper on the Billboard 200 for CHAMPIONSHIPS.

First-week numbers are in and Meek Mill came on top, as many predicted. The rapper completely exceeded his first-week sales projections with 226K units moved. 42K out of 226K moved were from pure album sales. It marks Meek Mill’s second number one album on the Billboard 200. Not only is this Meek’s best streaming week in his career, but it’s also the ninth-largest streaming week of the year for a project and the sixth-largest debut streaming frame of the year for an album.
