Jeremih

You probably know Jeremih from his insufferable 2009 R&B hit "Birthday Sex" (hear me out), but if you've been sleeping on his free mixtape, Late Nights with Jeremih (download it HERE), which he dropped this past August, you should probably wake up. Eschewing the radio R&B of that early hit, Jeremih opts for a sound more along the lines of Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, and Miguel that we've really been loving these past couple years. The mixtape is 18 tracks long and it's not without some throways and filler tracks, but the standouts really stand out and if Jeremih keeps up this direction, more great things are to come. The James Blake-leaning minimal R&B of "Fuck U All The Time" is not only the best song on the mixtape, but one of the best R&B songs I've heard all year. It was recently remixed by Shlohmo, but it already had a beat that you could have imagined Shlohmo coming up with. (It was produced by FKI, who worked with Diplo, Flosstradamus, and others on Iggy Azalea's TrapGold mixtape, and who are shaping up to be a solid project team.) Other highlights include knockout track, "Rated R," "Late Nights," and "773 Love," just to name a few of the stronger places to start.

If you're still skeptical because of Jeremih's past, that's totally understandable, but also don't forget that it is possible to make the move from corny mainstream to really interesting music (think Justin Timberlake). And given the time, it actually makes sense. I don't exactly fault him for making such a carbon-copy style radio friendly single in 2009. Miguel, whose new album is one of my favorites of the year, was doing similar things around then, but there weren't many opportunities for (male) R&B singers at the time to do anything but jump on the radio bandwagon. When guys like The Weeknd and Frank Ocean took to the internet to release free music the way they wanted it, and ultimately gained attention from music lovers and hit-seeking suits alike, the doors were opened for others to follow in their path. After two albums with Def Jam (the same label that Frank Ocean was on, who initially wouldn't release Nostalgia/Ultra) it makes sense that he used the free internet album method to reveal the sound he's actually capable of. Now that this is out there, hopefully he'll experience a similar fate to his peers that have taken similar routes and perfect his sound on a concise album.

Meanwhile, you can download a couple of the highlights from the Late Nights mixtape above and stream the whole thing and that Shlohmo remix below.

Iggy Azalea @ SOB's
this1

"I wasn't dropped by Interscope," Iggy told XXL moments after her performance in front of a sold-out crowd at SOBs in New York City on Thursday night (May 17). "I'm still managed by [Interscope], but when T.I. came on board and it became a Grand Hustle thing. We were working on restructuring and we worked down to the final deal. There's things that change when other people get involved. For me, I choose my involvement with Tip because that's my family over other things, so I'm thankful that I have him and he can kinda get me out of that situation; now it's just strictly Grand Hustle."

Her statement was corroborated by Interscope's Vice President of Publicity, Yvette Gayle, who told XXL that despite the news of Iggy's alleged deal in January, that Azalea never officially signed on with the imprint.

"Iggy decided not to sign with Interscope, but she is still managed by Interscope Management," Gayle explained in a statement sent to XXL.

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea stopped in NYC to play a sold out show at SOB's on Thursday (5/17) before continuing on to play Bamboozle in NJ. We actually do have some pics from the NJ show as well, but while we wait for those, where are some from the NY one. More of them with videos and the setlist from SOB's, below...

A$AP Rocky at Coachella 2012 (more by David Andrako)
ASAP Rocky

As mentioned, the Bamboozle festival goes down in Asbury Park this weekend (May 18-20). The festival, which has a continuing history of booking some of the lamest pop punk bands around, like Boys Like Girls, The All American Rejects, and Never Shout Never, has a few interesting/odd inclusions this year. For one, Bon Jovi is one of the headliners. Not only could they probably sell out an Asbury Park show without the rest of the Bamboozle lineup, but do any pop punkers want to see them anyway? Or did mom just need somewhere to be while her kids were seeing The Maine?

The other two headliners don't exactly fit the Bamboozle stereotype either: brostep tycoon Skrillex and grunge torchbearers Foo Fighters. But what's most interesting to us is within this odd mix of mall punk and Grammy Awards Winners, there's actually a handful of acts that we'd love to see, including many of our favorite new rappers, and some emo/pop punk forefathers that knew the difference between throwing a little melody into their punk and straightening their hair. If you do plan on making the trek to NJ this weekend, here's some recommendations of who to check out at the fest:

On Friday (5/18), bounce music party-starter Big Freedia, former Odd Future member Casey Veggies (who actually deserves to exist without that prefix), and Kreayshawn play the Beach Party Stage. Meanwhile, Anamanaguchi will be at the Temple of Boozle Stage. You can also catch Big Freedia in NYC on Thursday (5/17) at Santos before Bamboozle. Tickets are still available.

On Saturday (5/19), the Zumiez Stage will be graced by '90s greats Hot Water Music (who play Gramercy on 5/21-22) and The Promise Ring (who play Irving on 5/20). You can also catch some solid hip hop sets at the Beach Party Stage from A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire and Iggy Azalea (who plays SOBs on Thursday (5/17)). Blink-182 were also supposed to play on Saturday but they had to cancel their May dates due to illness and were replaced by My Chemical Romance.

On Sunday (5/20), fellow Jersey punks The Gaslight Anthem (who will preview new material at their sold out MHOW show TONIGHT (5/16)) and The Bouncing Souls (who celebrate their new record at Webster Hall on June 9) will be at the fest. Catch the Gaslight Anthem on Main Stage and the Souls on Zumiez Stage. Star Slinger will also play the Temple of the Boozle stage.

And last, literally last, but not least, well maybe least, and defintely WTF, this year's Paramount Stage will be closed down by none other than comedy legend Andrew Dice Clay who plays after fellow 80s & 90s entertainers Dramarama (who also play the afterparty at Stone Pony) who play after 1996 hit makers Spacehog (who you can also catch at Brooklyn Bowl Thursday).

Tickets for the festival are still available.

Did we leave anyone good out? Check out the set times below...

TI

Is there anything more confusing than two up and coming, feuding female hip hop stars, both with the name "Azalea" (like the flower), but one is a last name and one is a first name spelled "Azealia"?

The latter just played her first two shows ever at Coachella and is now on her way back to NYC (the 212) to work with Missy Elliot (and she is very proud of that). Earlier today she was tweeting at T.I. (see above) for calling her feud with his Australian Grand Hustle signee Iggy Azalea "bitch shit," or some sexist shit like that.

Iggy Azalea is playing SOB's in NYC on May 17, right before she plays Bamboozle in NJ. Tickets for the NYC show are on sale.

Bamboozle

When we first mentioned the lineup for this year's Bamboozle, which is taking place from May 18-20 in Asbury Park, NJ, it only included Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, Skrillex, Blink 182, Incubus, and Mac Miller. The generally lame festival has since revealed more artists including a surprising number of not-lame artists like the reunited Promise Ring (their first East Coast date announced, hopefully an NYC show to come?), Hot Water Music, Bouncing Souls, A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, and Murphy's Law. Take that, Warped Tour.

Tickets for Bamboozle are on sale now. Updated lineup below...
