Drake and Future

Is Drake the new Kanye?

Explosive pyrotechnics. Mad energy. The "6 God" backdrop and the whole field on his team. Drake hit the stage like he owned the world. When the backdrop flashed "If You're Reading This We Made It" I felt it in my body the way I do when I see 'Ye live. I seriously thought, "Wow, Drake has done it." Kanye is tabloid fodder and bad fashion and Drake is totally running the game. Drake's the new Kanye. And in that moment I really wanted it for him. That feeling stuck for a good portion of the set. Weirdly, the thing that undid it was when he brought out Future. We knew it was going to happen next week but tonight was a surprise. With the new collab album out it was an obvious choice and the crowd went wild and I actually liked the tracks they did. But Yeezy would never have done that and, more importantly, he'd never have to. He'd keep his 90 minutes all to himself and be completely riveting the whole time.

The 2015 Austin City Limits Festival kicked off on Friday and continued on Saturday (10/3) with Drake, TV on the Radio, A$AP Rocky, Alabama Shakes, Jose Gonzalez, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Sturgill Simpson, Shakey Graves, Father John Misty, Vince Staples and plenty more. Pictures of the second day of ACL are in this post.

As the above review points out, Drake brought out Future during his set to play three songs off DS2 including the Drake collab "Where Ya At," and then the duo made the live debut of "Jumpman" and "Big Rings" off their collaborative album What A Time To Be Alive. Videos below. Drake also released another Beyonce collab over the weekend, "Can I." He debuted on his Apple Music Beats 1 show, OVO Sound Radio, and you can listen below.

ACL fest's first weekend wraps up Sunday (10/4) and if you're not there you can stream it live (via Red Bull TV) below. ACL does it again this coming weekend (10/9 - 10/11) too. UPDATE: Day 3 happened and pics are up.

Fetty Wap

Ty Dolla $ign is behind of the most undeniable pop-rap hits in recent years and Fetty Wap is behind at least two in the past year alone, so it's good news that they decided to team up for a song together, "When I See Ya." The track will appear on Ty's upcoming album Free TC, which now has a release date of November 13 (pre-order) and also features previous singles "Blase" featuring Future & Rae Sremmurd and "Only Right" featuring YG, Joe Moses & TeeCee 4800. "Blase" just got a new video this week. Watch that, with the "Only Right" video and "When I See Ya" song stream, below.

Ty Dolla $ign will be in NYC TONIGHT (9/17) for this week's edition of Just Blaze's weekly House Party at Webster Hall. Tickets are on sale now. Ty's only other upcoming appearances at the moment are three shows in California: Sacramento's TBD Fest with Tyler the Creator, RL Grime, Death Grips, Chance the Rapper, Mobb Deep, Dinsaour Jr, Tears For Fears and more; Mountain View's How The West Was Won with Snoop Dogg, Schoolboy Q and more; and Inglewood's Real 92.3 Presents 'The Real Show' with Kendrick Lamar, Future, Jeremih, Fetty Wap, Rae Sremmurd, Rich Homie Quan and Jidenna.

In related news, Fetty Wap also announced the release date for his new album: next week (9/25). Here's the artwork:

Dej Loaf

Future has been the talk of the pop-rap world since releasing his new album DS2 last week, and more recently he jumped on the new Dej Loaf single "Hey There." It has Dej more overtly in R&B mode than "Try Me," as you can hear below.

Dej Loaf is on the stacked, ongoing Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, Rae Sremmurd, Tinashe tour which comes through the NYC-area twice this weekend. First they're at PNC Bank Arts Center tonight (7/24) and then Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Sunday (7/26). Tickets for both are still available.

Dej is on first, and after playing Barclays Center she'll head to smaller NYC venue Marlin Room at Webster Hall for a late-night Sunday show. It starts at 11 PM and DJ Ak and DJ K Rue kick things off. Tickets are available.

In semi-related news, fellow Future collaborators Migos are now streaming their official debut album, Yung Rich Nation. It comes out next week (7/31) on Quality Control/Atlantic, but you can listen to the whole thing on Pandora. They're celebrating it with a release show in NYC on Thursday (7/30) at Highline Ballroom. Tickets are on sale.

Stream the Zaytoven-produced "What A Feeling" from Yung Rich Nation, with the Dej Loaf/Future song, below...

Plenty of great hip hop shows in NYC are getting announced all the time. We don't get a chance to write about all of them, so here's a roundup of some recently-announced stuff coming up:

photo: Governors Ball 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

NYC music festival Governors Ball returns June 5-7, and today the schedule was revealed.

There's a few tough conflicts in there. On Friday, fans of both Drake and My Morning Jacket have a decision to make, as do fans of both The Decemberists and Florence + the Machine. And earlier that day, Twin Shadow is up against Charli XCX.

On Saturday, two big electronic producers go against each other, Flume and SBTRKT, and you'll have to decide between Bjork and Conor Oberst. Anyone into both Sharon Van Etten and Kiesza also has some deciding to do.

And on Sunday, The Black Keys are up against Lana Del Rey, and Hot Chip are up against Flying Lotus. Weird Al plays at the same time as The War On Drugs. We hope he writes and performs a Mark Kozelek parody for the occasion.

Check out the full schedule HERE.

UPDATE: Future and Black Pistol Fire have been added to the Governors Ball Friday lineup

Vince Staples

Last year, rapper Vince Staples put out his Hell Can Wait EP which changed him pretty quickly from a promising artist to one of the most exciting young rappers around. It's an excellent EP, and one of the best releases of last year in any genre. Now, he's finally ready to put out his proper debut album, which is called Summertime '06 and executive produced by No I.D. According to a press release, it's due June 30 via Blacksmith, Artium, and Def Jam.

First single "Señorita" is out now, and it has Vince in killer form with guest contributions from Future. Listen below.

Vince's recent tour with Earl Sweatshirt was cancelled, and though Vince won't be on Earl's rescheduled NYC date for August, you can catch him in NYC at the Run the Jewels / Sleigh Bells Northside show happening June 14 at 50 Kent. Tickets for that show are still available, and you can also try to get in using a Northside badge.

Travi$ Scott
Travi$ Scott

Kanye associate Travi$ Scott is still in the process of planning his official debut album, and today he dropped two new songs that may or may not appear on it. The first is called "High Fashion" and features Future, and the second is called "Nothing But Net" and features past collaborator (and Drake associate) PARTNEXTYDOOR, Young Thug and producer Boi-1da. Both are pretty in line with the kind of melodic rap that's been taking off lately, as you can hear for yourself below.

Travi$ and Young Thug will also be hitting the road together for a tour this March. That brings the two rappers to NYC on March 12 at Webster Hall and also hits SXSW. Tickets for that show (and the whole tour) go on sale at 10 AM local time on Friday (1/30) with a presale beginning Wednesday (1/28).

Young Thug is still fresh off the hype of his 2014 mixtape with Rich Homie Quan and Birdman. Stream that, with the two new Travi$ Scott songs and list of tour dates, below...

Yesterday, Pitchfork put out their top tracks of 2014 and today they continue their year-end coverage with their 20 honorable mention albums, a list they say is "not #51 through #70 in our albums poll, but rather, records we thought were exceptional this year and deserved to be highlighted regardless of where they wound up." They included Against Me!'s Transgender Dysphoria Blues, and wrote, "Against Me! is a punk band making their most necessary album as they approach 20 years of existence. (The kids I knew in high school never would've predicted that.)"

There's also Frankie Cosmos' Zentropy, which P4k gave plenty of buzz this year, emo revival band The Hotelier's Home, Like Noplace Is there, iLoveMakonnen (who did really well in their tracks list), the US release on Run for Cover of Swedish post-punks Makthaverskan's 2013 album II, Pallbearer's Foundations of Burden (the only metal album to get best new music this year), Protomartyr's Under Color of Official Right, rising and BCC Sound of 2015 longlisted Shamir's Northtown EP, Sleaford Mods' Divide and Exit and more.

Find out who else made the list, below...

Pitchfork have begun rolling out their year-end coverage, and today they posted their Top 100 Tracks of 2014. Like every year, it's a very diverse list, with songs from Taylor Swift, The New Pornographers, iLoveMakonnen, Protomartyr, Cloud Nothings, Rae Sreummurd, Makthaverskan, Ty Segall, Parquet Courts, Azealia Banks, White Lung, Perfect Pussy, Dej Loaf, Migos, Alvvays, Against Me!, Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, Bobby Shmurda, Charli XCX, Grouper, Beyonce, Perfume Genius, Shamir, Michael Jackson, Tinashe and more. And their #1 seems to be the most ubiquitous #1 of 2014.

Gorilla vs Bear posted their lists of their favorite albums (35) and songs (100) of 2014. Though the albums list does have some of the stuff you always see (like The War On Drugs), it's mostly got a lot of unique choices like Recycle Culture, Korallreven, Yumi Zouma, Beverly, Panda Bear's EP and more, and the #1 is pretty unique too. FKA twigs doesn't crack the albums list but she's on the tracks list twice, along with tracks by Tinashe, iLoveMakonnen, Jessica Pratt, Grouper, a Recyle Culture remix of Taylor Swift, and plenty of PC Music representation.

Check out his full lists below...

The FADER always has some year-end coverage, but for the past 15 years they didn't publish a ranked year-end list. This year however, they ranked their 116 favorite songs of 2014 (find out why) and it's a diverse list that manages to sing the praises of iLoveMakonnen, Tinashe, Alex G, Florida Georgia Line, Enrique Iglesias, Bleachers, Ricky Eat Acid, YG, Toni Braxton & Babyface, Nothing, Grimes, Parquet Courts, Run the Jewels and Grouper all in the same damn list.

Rolling Stone

The Best Albums of 2014 lists keep coming, and now Rolling Stone's is out. It's hard to imagine anyone else picking the #1 and #2 they did, but that's Rolling Stone for you. It's also hard to imagine a list placing the new albums from Weezer and the Foo Fighters so high, but smacking buzz band Ought right in between them. And it seems random that YOB comes in at #50 when no other metal album makes the list, not even the critically acclaimed one by Pallbearer or any of the hugely acclaimed returns from veteran bands like At the Gates, Godflesh and Electric Wizard. Also, don't tell Jack White how much higher The Black Keys placed than him.

Check out their top 50 picks for yourself, below...

Tinashe first began picking up significant buzz earlier this year thanks to her Schoolboy Q-featuring, DJ Mustard-produced single "2 On," which later appeared on her debut album Aquarius which came out last month. The album -- also featuring guest spots from Dev Hynes, A$AP Rocky and Future, as well as production from Dev, Mike Will Made It, Evian Christ, Cashmere Cat, Boi-1da and others -- is mostly alt-R&B in the vein of The Weeknd or the self-titled Beyonce album. It's a sound that's been endlessly replicated over the past few years, but Aquarius is one of the better albums of this kind to come out this year. Watch the videos for "2 On" and the A$AP Rocky-featuring "Pretend," and stream the Dev Hynes-featuring "Bet," below.

Tinashe was recently in NYC for Power 105.1 Powerhouse, and she'll return for a headlining show on her North American tour in December. That tour hits Highline Ballroom on December 15. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the videos/stream, below...

Yesterday, Pitchfork posted their top 200 tracks of the decade so far, and today they've listed the top 100 albums to have come out between 2010-2014. There's some surprises on there. For example, I didn't expect to see Bon Iver's self-titled, their #1 album of 2011 and with a score of 9.5, rank as low as #27 on this list. I was also surprised to see Chief Keef make it but not, say, Shabazz Palaces or Schoolboy Q. And there's a few other glaring omissions: nothing by The National? Grizzly Bear? One thing that will surprise no one though, is their #1 pick.

You can check out the full list below...

As mentioned, Adult Swim is back with their Singles Series, now in its fifth year, with a new free song to download every Monday during the summer. This year's lineup features exclusive tracks from Destruction Unit, Speedy Ortiz, Sleep, Deafheaven, Run the Jewels, Mastodon, Machinedrum and more. Full lineup and schedule of the Adult Swim 2014 Singles Series is below.

First up: synth legend and master arpeggiator Giorgio Moroder who will offer up "Moroder's Theme" on Monday (6/9). He's not aiming to reinvent his sound for the EDM world here, this is as classic sounding as it gets, very much in the style of "Chase" from Midnight Express. (It also kinda reminds me of Propaganda's "Dr. Mabuse" which owed more than a little to Moroder.) You can stream it now, and check out an Adult Swim interview with Giorgio, below.

After a high-energy day on the main stage at Coachella that also included performances from Ellie Goulding, Chromeo and Girl Talk, Andre 3000 and Big Boi emerged from the center of a hollow cube that remained propped up onstage throughout their set. The duo fulfilled every promise of an Outkast reunion in the set's first third, starting with "B.O.B." and jumping from "Gasoline Dreams" to "ATLiens" to a run of "Aquemini" songs, including "Skew It On The Bar-B," "Rosa Parks" and the title track. With material that strong, details like the stage show, live band and the duo's vocal delivery could be waved off as fairly inconsequential. But those aspects were on-point too, with the giant cube flashing some neat graphics when it wasn't transparent, the brass section adding pop to "Spottieottiedopaliscious" and Andrew and Big palling around like old times (or that's how it seemed, at least). With Three-Stacks wearing overalls and a hoodie and Big Boi rocking a massive gold chain, Outkast came out looking fresh and sounding reinvigorated, as they proceeded to check off some of their classic songs. - [The Hollywood Reporter]
Hip hop duo Outkast played their first show in years last night (4/11) as headliners of the first day of Coachella 2014 (Weekend 1). Opening with "B.O.B." André 3000 and Big Boi gave the crowd hits and deep cuts, and each had a solo set. Big Boi brought out Janelle Monae during his to do "Tightrope." When they both returned for the closing Outkast set, they brought out Atlanta rapper Future for three songs.

The night finished with "Ms Jackson," "So Fresh So Clean," "I Like the Way You Move" and "Hey Ya!" A planned collaboration with Killer Mike was aborted as the 1 AM curfew hit. They'll do it again -- and maybe fit everything in before curfew -- this Friday (4/18) for Coachella's second weekend. You can watch Outkast's whole Coachella performance, and check out the setlist, below.

Coachella day 2 (with headliners Muse) is underway as we speak and you can watch online via their YouTube channel. More Outkast Coachella pics, their performance video and setlist below...

Drake at Made In America 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)

The most discussed rap verse of the year had to be Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's "Control," where he called out a ton of rappers that he was "tryna murder" including Drake, A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Big Sean himself, and others. Since its release, tons of those rappers have responded with their own verses or in interviews, as have many rappers who Kendrick didn't address. Drake (fresh off being awarded Pitchfork's #1 song of the year) didn't seemed too bothered by it at first, saying Kendrick "is not murdering me, at all, in any platform," but maybe Kendrick's diss during the BET Cypher further irked him. Pitchfork points out that it sounds like Drake is taking shots back at Kendrick with his verse on Mike Will Made It's remix of Future's "Sh!t" that also features Juicy J. Those shots would be:

I hear you talk about your city like you run that/ And I brought my tour to your city/ You my son there, nigga," he raps. "If a nigga say my name, he the hot shit/ But if I say the nigga name he still the hot shit/ Fucked up/ Lucky I don't feed into the gossip.
Listen to the track below...
