Here is the lineup for the Philly branch of the Jiggaman’s concert series. Hip hop highlights include Kanye, Pharrell, J. Cole, De La Soul (!!!), Danny Brown and YG.
Jay-Z’s annual Made In America concert is now making a stop in Los Angeles. I can only hope that it makes it’s way to Chicago one year. Some hip hop highlights include Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, Cypress Hill, YG, Nipsey Hussle, Hit-Boy, DJ Mustard, Ab-Soul, Isaiah Rashad, Jay Rock & SZA. If you’re in the LA area, this is not a show to be missed.
In case you didn’t know, over the weekend Young Khalifa announced via Twitter that he would be dropping a new mixtape entitled 28 Grams (which equates to almost an ounce of cannabis in case you were wondering) sometime before his third album Blacc Hollywood drops. We still don’t have a release date for either project, but peep the artwork above.
Earlier this week, Cudder made the announcement that he would be writing and directing another short film. The first time he did something of this nature was with Shia LaBeouf for Maniac (check that out here,) and this time it’s for Balmain Jeans, a cut found on his recently released SATELLITE FLIGHT: The Journey To Mother Moon. No release date has been announced as of yet, but we will keep you posted.
It’s officially called “These Days…” The Black Lip Pastor was given “permission” to announce the title of his new album. There were a few back and forth tweets between Soulo and his label head, but I’m just glad they worked out their differences to focus on the music. Release date coming soon.
Earlier today XXL revealed its cover for its infamous freshman issue. Personally, I have not been a fan of the list since Big Sean was a freshman, but this year the list is decent. Chicago is definitely represented in this year’s issue and congratulations to the freshman class of 2014. I can’t wait for the cyphers; I will def keep you guys posted on that.
At this point, I’ll watch any video pertaining to Action Bronson that gets released. Check out this hilarious promo clip here.
While there is still no word on a release date, or what the movie actually entails, this movie poster tells us that Hype Williams is involved. Based on that knowledge, I’m expecting everything and nothing at the same time. We will keep you posted on the film details as they arise.
I don’t know if is the official cover art or not, but this image popped up on Kobe Bryant’s Twitter feed a few days ago. I’m hoping this means The Black Mamba gets to spit a hot 16 on there. We will keep you posted, but in the meantime, #NeverForget.
Young Khalifa will be hitting the road once again with the likes of Young Jeezy, Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign, Rich Homie Quan, Mack Wilds , IAMSU! and DJ Drama. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 4:20pm (go figure.)
