Lou Reed I mean GDP in "The Next Day" video
NY/NJ alternative rapper GDP is set to follow his 2013 EP on Run For Cover, Holla, (and a recent collaboration with Antwon) with a new mixtape, Permanent Vocation, due out this spring via Smokers Cough. The new record's single, "The Next Day" (not a David Bowie cover but the video does feature GDP dressed up like Lou Reed), was produced by Melbourne producer Aoi, and like most of GDP's stuff sounds inspired by Def Jux/Rhymesayers-style hip hop. The video for the single makes its premiere in this post, and you can watch it below.
GDP is also heading out on the road with electronic producer (and Smokers Cough labelmate) Rosegold this month. The tour kicks off in Brooklyn on February 18 at The Flat (308 Hooper St) with NeakO, Bryant Dope, Big Breakfast and resident DJ MopTop. Admission for the show, which doubles as Rosegold's Past Lives LP release party, is $5 at the door.
All dates are listed, along with the new GDP video, below...

Main Attrakionz at BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Earlier this month, we mentioned that iPhone/Android app Mobli was throwing a CMJ party with Heems, Sasha Go Hard, Kitty Pryde, Weekend Money, SAFE, The Underachievers, and Party Supplies. That party was supposed to happen today at Delinquency but that venue has since been shut down so the whole lineup (minus The Underachievers and Party Supplies) is merging with the Young One Records showcase, which happens tonight (10/17) at 285 Kent. That showcase, in addition to including the names mentioned above, will have Main Attrakionz, Kool AD, Deniro Farrar, Supreme Cuts, Cities Aviv, Bryant Dope, Ryan Hemsworth, and CBG. SAFE and Ryan Hemsworth are DJing between sets, the rest of the acts are playing live. The show flier and set times are below.
That 285 Kent show is a pretty stacked bill for hip hop, and if you're into stacked hip hop shows like that one, you'll also probably want to check out the Mass Appeal party at Gramercy on Friday (10/19) with Asher Roth, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep), The Alchemist, Large Professor, Mr. Muthafuckin' exquire, Roc Marciano, Boldy James, Ninja Sonik, Bodega Bamz, Alexander Spit, Angel Haze and Timeless Youth. That one's free with RSVP to RSVP@massappeal.com but entry is based on capacity. The flier for this show is below.
As mentioned, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire also plays SOB's on Thursday (10/18) and an MTV Studio at Webster Hall the same day. That studio show is with Big K.R.I.T. and LE1F, and when we first mentioned it, a "special guest" was billed who has since been revealed as Killer Mike. Tickets for that one are still available.
That MTV show is an early show (5:30 doors) and after that there's a late show with Chuck Inglish (of The Cool Kids), Ninjasonik, ASAP TyY, Blvckalfred, Vault Boys, MopTop, Chase N Cashe, GDP, Vyle, and Curtains. Tickets for that one are still available.
Cities Aviv, in addition to the Young One show, has other CMJ shows, including the Flowerbooking CMJ showcase at Knitting Factory on Friday (10/19) with Unicorn Kid, Ki:Theory, Devin, Ghost Wave, and Talk Normal (tickets) and the Bond Music Group/PopGun show at Cameo Gallery on Friday (10/19) (late show) with Steven A. Clark, Lushlife, Dark Sister, and Pegasus Warning (tickets).
He also plays the free BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday (10/20) with The Orwells, Eternal Summers, and the rest of the lineup coming soon!
While we're talking about good hip hop shows during CMJ, don't forget the Converse Rubber Tracks/Fool's Gold 5th anniversary show at Music Hall of WIlliamsburg on Saturday (10/20) with Ghostface Killah, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Donnis, Nick Catchdubs, World's Fair, Troy Ave, and special guests. That one's totally free, first come, first served.
Showcase flier and set times for the Young One/Mobli show are below.

NYC newcomer emcee Anthm is readying his new EP, Joy and Pain, due out on June 12. Unlike the cloud rap of fellow NYC rapper A$AP Rocky or the throwback hardcore hip hop of Action Bronson and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Anthm has more in common with the neo-conscious west coast rap of Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, or Blu, who appears on his newest joint, "Polaris." The two rappers work well together on top of RJF's chilled-out beats and tampered vocal samples. You can download that track, along with another Anthm cut called "Life Imitates Art," above, or stream them below. Also below is the video for "Manhattan."
Anthm and Blu will share a bill in NYC at the 2DopeBoyz-presented show at SOB's on June 13 with Bryant Dope. Tickets for that show are on sale now. The flier for this show is below.
Speaking of Blu, he just dropped a new single, "Kiss the Sky," last week (5/22) via Coalmine Records with guest vocals from Mela Machinko, production from M-Phazes, and cuts by DJ Dutchmaster. Stream that below, along with a list of all Blu dates, the Anthm song streams, video, and flier for the SOB's show.
