Migos

Atlanta rap trio Migos have been getting a good amount of buzz lately thanks to their new mixtape, YRN (Young Rich Niggas). They've got all the hooks and general fun-ness going on in trap rap lately, but they'll throw some fast rhymes into the mix, which hints that they may have a bigger potential here than just the next "All Gold Everything." Trinidad Jame$, Riff Raff, Gucci Mane, and Soulja Boy all show up on the mixtape too. You can download it for free at livemixtapes, and stream it in its entirety below.

Migos will make their NYC debut TONIGHT (7/10) at The Westway (75 Clarkson St) with DJ sets from Childish Major, Tommy Kruise, Suzi Analogue, Geng-Grizzly, and Farrington G. The show starts at 9 PM, is 21+, and you have to RSVP to attend. If you can't make it, it will also stream live on Boiler Room.

Mixtape stream and show flyer below...

A$AP Rocky at Public Assembly in February (more by Dylan Johnson)
A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky is currently on his arena tour with Rihanna which hits the NYC area on April 28 at Prudential Center and May 4 and 5 at Barclays Center, and after recently scheduling a smaller Highline Ballroom show during it which he quickly cancelled, Rocky has announced another huge tour to go down this summer. It's a co-headlining tour with Wiz Khalifa and support comes from Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era, Rockie Fresh, Trinidad Jame$, B.o.B. and Berner. Smoke DZA opens some dates in select cities (but not the NYC-area dates) too.

That tour, dubbed the "Under the Influence of Music Tour" hits the NYC area for big amiphitheater shows at PNC Bank Arts Center on August 2 in Holmdel, NJ, Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on August 6 in Wantagh, NY and Comcast Theatre on August 8 in Hartford, CT. Those shows happen about a month before A$AP Rocky plays the Jay-Z curated Budweiser Made In America Festival in Philly. Tickets for all shows on the tour go on sale Saturday (4/27) at 10 AM. Citi Cardmember presales start on Tuesday (4/23) at 10 AM and Live Nation presales start Friday (4/26) at 10 AM for the Jones Beach and Comcast Theatre shows. A four-ticket promotional offer for the PNC Bank Arts Center show starts Monday, April 29 at 10 AM.

Meanwhile, Joey Bada$$ just brought his tour with Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers through NYC for shows at Highline Ballroom (4/18) at Gramercy Theater (4/20), and he also has upcoming dates at The Roots Picnic (6/1) in Philly (tickets) and Hot 97 Summer Jam's Festival Village (6/2) in NJ (tickets). Check out a video of Joey rapping his verse on A$AP Rocky's "1 Train" at yesterday's Gramercy Theater show.

Wiz Khalifa's new live EP with Curren$y is also available on iTunes now.

All dates are listed, along with the tour trailer video, tour flyer, and A$AP Rocky's video for "Fuckin' Problems," below...

Antwon

Antwon's recent End of Earth LP and End of Earth Remixz mixtape, the latter of which surfaced at Gorilla v Bear, were a good indication of the MC's predeliction towards glitchy, at times ugly (in the best way) electronic hip hop. Think a less-nasal Freeway over a mix of Death Grips and other electronic beats.

The MC has a pair of dates sheduled for NYC in the coming weeks including a (conditionally) FREE show on January 23 at Public Assembly with Trinidad James (who'll play SOB's too), Hot Sugar, and DJ Getlive!; and  then January 24 at Santos Party House with guests Cities Aviv and Weekend Money. Tickets for the Santos show are on sale.

Head below for Antwon stream...

Sirius

Hard to believe, but our BrooklynVegan "Blog Radio" show has been airing weekly on satellite radio for over 6.5 years. It started on Sirius which then merged with XM and became SiriusXM. The station, which was originally "Left of Center" on Sirius, is now called SiriusXMU (on SiriusXM). You can currently hear the two hour show on the "indie/college" station every Wednesday at noon EST and again at midnight that night (which is technically Thursday morning in Eastern Standard Time).

At some point years ago I brought on like-minded music lover Dominic (Nick) Masi to be my co-host, and to cover when I couldn't make it. Now, though I still may pop in occasionally (my New Year's resolution!), Nick has taken over completely, hosting the show week to week with a selection of music you'll find on BrooklynVegan.com and on his own iPod. Recently Nick also started hosting a show called "Cover Me" (all cover songs) on Bruce Springsteen's E Street Radio, and other programs on the network too.

In his spare time, Nick now tour manages members of Odd Future - a job which was an offshoot of his huge passion for hip hop (and traveling around the continent in a van).

What were Nick's favorite records and songs in 2012? We asked him and he gave us a list of his top 10 albums and "top 15 hip hop songs of the year that don't feature 2Chainz, Kanye, Drake, Rick Ross or (fill in the blank with your favorite rapper you've seen on every remix this year)."

You can check out both of Nick's lists, along with videos or streams for each song on his hip hop list (Odd Future songs included), below...
