Illenium Is Doing A Feedback Stream For Fans’ Songs Tomorrow

Few artists haven’t yet taken advantage of the new streaming culture that we currently find ourselves in, thanks to widespread quarantine restrictions due to COVID-19. Illenium is one of the big ones, who by all metrics has the capacity to stream, but doesn’t. (You can read why here.)

Though he still won’t be streaming music, he will be hopping on Twitch tomorrow for a feedback stream.

“I wanted to take this opportunity to give some aspiring producers honest feedback on their songs/wips,” he says. “Feel free to send a tune in my Discord server. I’ll be listening to them on my Twitch stream on Wednesday 5/27 at 5pm PST!”

You can find Illenium’s Discord here. Only submit 320kbps MP3 files (no links) in the #feedback channel, submissions close Wednesday at 12pm PST.

Mako Drops ‘Parable’ & Instagram Livestream

The globally respected producer, DJ and musician Mako, otherwise known as Alex Seaver, has just released his newest record. Taking a fresh direction from his last track ‘Chameleon,’ which had several remixes, Seaver reflects on its development, saying: “I had a lot of fun with this record, working with different instruments and strange time signatures. I don’t think that there are that many songs which come out each week that are in 7/8 and feature a Bulgarian Chant from the Middle Ages!”

The single will feature on his forthcoming album Fable, and plays around with unique time signatures and instrumentation for a fusion of sounds. We are immediately swept up in the expressive lead vocal, whilst clever guitar stylings and peppered percussion ensure it has progressive substance.

Mako will be celebrating the release of ‘Parable’ with an Instagram livestream today at 10am PST, where he will be chatting with fans and sharing more about the single. Head here to join.

[LIVE STREAM] Porter Robinson’s Secret Sky Festival Starts With 2010-Electro House Set

Today is the day! Porter Robinson’s Secret Sky festival, modeled after his hit smash Second Sky festival debuted last year, is here. With a lineup sporting most of his personal favorite artists, including some we may have not heard of like DV-1, kz (livetune), Doss, Kizuna AI, and more, as well as fan favorites like Madeon and G Jones, the lineup is to die for.

Like Second Sky last year, when Porter opened the festival with a Virtual Self set, the tastemaker is encouraging fans to arrive early by presenting a special 2010-style electro house set by himself, courtesy of DJ Potaro.

Everything begins at 11am PST and will go all day, with Lil Texas rounding things off at 11:45pm PST.

Watch the whole festival live and see the set times below!

Wavedash Premiering Parts Of Their Debut Album In Secret Sky Set

Porter Robinson’s Secret Sky this Saturday is going to be something really special. Not just for Porter himself, not for all the incredible artists that will be playing, but also because WAVEDASH will be premiering parts of their debut album.

In an emotional post to social media, the trio reveals they were so close to giving up completely. This album has been four years in the making and with help from a few friends, they were able to finish it and prepare to present it live during the festival stream.

The live stream begins at 11 a.m. PST and will be broadcast on the Secret Sky website as well as YouTube, Twitch, and PlayStation via the Littlstar app.

secret sky will be particularly special for us

Skrillex Going B2B With Noisia For Upcoming Remote Utopias Set

Though London’s NTS Radio’s Remote Utopias broadcast featured many names less known to American audiences, names like Tame Impala, JPEGMAFIA, Four Tet, Kelsey Lu, and of course Skrillex definitely piqued the interest of many.

The event will not be live streamed, rather broadcast during a 24-hour radio takeover hosted by NTS Radio, so that’s a shame. However, a silver lining — Skrillex’s set will see him going b2b with Noisia, according to the radio’s app (though, strangely, the set doesn’t appear on their website).

Skrillex and Noisia will go B2B tomorrow, Saturday, May 2 at 5:45pm PST/8:45pm EST. The screenshot on Reddit shows Sunday, but the website now lists Saturday, so we’re going with that.

One of the big questions in the thread on Reddit is whether this will be a fresh set or a re-broadcast of his set with Thys of Noisia from earlier this year. Based on their timeslot, the guess is toward a new set (and hopefully not a cut recording of the past one).

Bookmark this page for the live stream.

So I’ve decided to download an app for tomorrow’s set and found this from skrillex


Lollapalooza Unlocked Past Sets From The Last 20 Years, Starting With The Strokes & Alesso

In light of its cancellation due to COVID-19, Lollapalooza will begin unlocking past festival sets over the last 20 years at a pace of two per week for as long as we’re self-isolating.

The first performance came yesterday courtesy of The Strokes’ 2010 set, followed by Alesso’s 2019 performance this Sunday at 5pm PST.

Lollapalooza is one of the consistently top 10 music festivals in the US, along with Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and more. Like sets at these other festivals, those at the Chicago mainstay are often banner performances for artists, especially so if Chicago is their home town.

Stay tuned for Alesso’s set this Sunday, and watch The Strokes below.

[Premiere] Quackson Drops New Single, “Fall Apart”

Rising artist Quackson is finally here with his first single of 2020, “Fall Apart.”

Known primarily for his midtempo sound, this new single sees him tackling a different direction. With ephemeral female vocals, the drop is both minimalist and maximalist, using very few sounds to actually convey its message but doing so with an unconstrained intensity.

The second drop is particularly glitchy, and almost sounds like a virus has entered the song’s system. I suppose in that sense, “Fall Apart” is quite an apropos track title. The third drop is even more distorted.

Check out “Fall Apart” below now! You can also catch Quackson on Twitch (link below) Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, starting at 5pm PST until whenever he decides to get off.

New Video Shows XXXTentacion Getting Beaten By Migos

Some new video footage has surfaced online showing XXXTentacion getting beat down by Migos.

The Florida rapper broke the news on Monday night on Instagram that he got jumped by Migos and their gang in Los Angeles. He also posted a short video clip showing Takeoff fleeing the scene while he and a few men yelled for him to turn around and fight him. At that time there wasn’t any real footage of the fight except that XXXTentacion has some scared including what he said is a stab wound from the melee.

Seems someone from Migos gang now decided to share a video from the fight that shows X on the ground and another unidentified man on top of him. Some folks are saying that it was actually Takeoff who was on top of the “Look At Me” rapper beating him to a pulp. Others are saying that the guys beating up X were affiliates of Migos and no member of the actual Migos group, Quavo, Offset, or Takeoff, are actually in the video that shows the fight. None of the Migos members have said anything publicly about the fight, we have only heard from XXXTentacion so far and he said he will not be pressing charges or calling the cops.

XXXTentacion hinted during one of his video rants that he might sue Migos over the fight and make a lot of money. “They also didn’t get arrested because of me, just so ya know, your life was in my hands,” X wrote. He also wanted his rivals to fight him one on one instead of attacking him in a pack. The beef between the two sides started when Offset called out XXXTentacion for disrespecting Drake earlier this year, but this is the first time that they are having a running with each other.

XXXTentacion Confirmed He Got Beat Down By Migos

Seems Migos claimed another victing and this time its XXXTentacion.

The Lauderhill rapper confirmed in a video her posted on Instagram on Monday night that Migos jumped him in L.A. There is no word yet from the Atlanta rap trio, but Cardi B posted a video of herself and Offset basically confirming that he wasn’t there. The video clip we saw only shows Takeoff basically taking off from the scene and someone in the background like X and his crew yelling at the Migos member and his security.

“Before you heard it from anybody else, I got jumped in L.A. by some pu**y ass n***** and they jumped me,” X confirmed. “Nobody gave me the faith of a one on one, ni**a, nobody gave me the respect of a one on one and I painted that n***a while he was on the ground. Fuck the Migos, straight up… Y’all ni**a had the chance to kill me. How you have fire and ain’t shoot me after all the sh*t I been talking. How the f**k you ain’t shoot me. Yall ni**a p***y as f**k.”

X also shared some words for one Migos member, Takeoff, in the caption of the video he posted on Instagram. “LOOK AT PU**Y ASS LIFT OFF RUNNINNNGGGG HAHAHHAA, I AINT GON LIE, I SMACKED THE FYE OUT THE BACK OFF THAT BOY SECURITY GUARD BALD AH HEAD AHAHAHHAHAH @yrntakeoff @migos LOLOL HOW YALL LEFT YALL HOMEBOY AHAHAHAHA,” he wrote.

XXXTentacion also posted a pic of Cardi B assuring her that he has no beef with her, despite his issues with Migos. “Just letting u kno rn bae… i dont got no pressure witchu… i bump bodak orange when I shower… i love u,” he wrote.

XXXTentacion then posted another video pushing some positive message. Watch the clip below.

Fans Poured Out For Free Meek Mill Rally In Philly [VIDEO]

Thousands of fans poured out in Philadelphia on Monday for a Free Meek Mill rally.

The Dreamchasers rapper is currently serving 2-4 years in a state prison in Pennsylvania for probation violation. But his sentencing last week sparked a national debate about the criminal justice system and now his fans are demanding a review of the controversial sentence. Both hip hop fans and the rapper’s celebrity peers have been weighing in on the case and most are in agreement that the sentence was heavy-handed and unjust.

The rally started at 5 p.m. on Monday at Philadelphia’s Criminal Justice Center and the crowd later marched through the streets. There is no word yet on if any celebrities attended the rally, but some members of Meek Mill’s Dreamchaser crew were there to support the rapper. NFL star and the leader of the new wave of anti social injustice, Colin Kaepernick, has also weighed in with a message on Twitter.

“Sadly there are Black folks going through the same radicalized injustice(s) within the justice system that Meek Mill has experienced for over a decade EVERY SINGLE DAY,” he wrote. “This requires more than just gradual reform in laws—It requires a swift overhaul.”

The video clip below, show a section of the large crowd rapping Meek Mill’s intro to his album, Dreams and Nightmares. There are a lot of allegations around the judge in Meek Mill case, some sources say she was carrying a grudge against the Philly rapper and even comes from the same section of Philadelphia where Meek’s from. The latest allegation is that she tried to get the rapper to leave his management company Roc Nation and signed with a local Philly manager.

Sadly there are Black folks going through the same radicalized injustice(s) within the justice system that Meek Mill has experienced for over a decade EVERY SINGLE DAY. This requires more than just gradual reform in laws—It requires a swift overhaul.

— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) November 13, 2017

“When she requests he leaves his current management Roc Nation—which is one of the most important management companies in the world—and goes back to a local Philadelphia guy who has a spotted past because she had a personal relationship with him as manager, again, she’s doing something that a judge would never be doing, having a personal interest,” Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, told Billboard.

Desiigner & PnB Rock Dropping A Joint Album Next Year

Desiigner and PnB Rock are on the verge of dropping a joint album.

Desiigner is currently working on his own upcoming album The Life Of Desiigner but so far there is no release date for the project. Now there are talks that he is working on a joint LP with PnB Rock. The Brooklyn rapper announced the project on Twitter a few days ago. “PNB AND DESIIGNER ALBUM… coming soon,” he tweeted. Desiigner has come under criticism from some rap fans recently who claimed that he dropped off. He responded on Instagram saying that he is far from dropped off.

“For all them haters out there man,” the rapper said while showing off his house and luxury car. “I don’t want to hear all that sh*t about Desiigner fell off, Desiigner never fell nowhere. I fell into a motherf***** mansion that I just bought in L.A., you know what am saying. Thank you to all my fans the album coming soon.”

The “Panda” rapper has been relatively quiet since score hit breakout hit single and a couple other notable collaborations. Earlier this year, he released a music video for his song with Gucci Mane, “Liife.” The “Tiimmy Turner” MC has been teasing his upcoming album and a mixtape for the past couple of months so naturally some fans are saying that they don’t believe that he will drop a project with PnB Rock anytime soon. So now its up to Desiigner to prove his haters wrong and drop something, whether it be his own personal project or this joint effort.

PnB Rock is currently gearing up to release his own debut album, Catch These Vibes, and earlier this year he released his GTTM: Going Thru The Motions mixtape. He then went on to get featured on XXL Freshman Class of 2017 which help further push his career this year.

Safaree Is Concerned About Nicki Minaj New Bad Habits

Safaree Samuels has a message for his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj.

Last weekend, Nicki posted a video of herself and her girls hanging out drinking some wine and smoking blunts. According to Safaree, Nicki is now in her mid 30s and that’s when she decided to take up smoking. The Love and Hip Hop star says his ex need help and he hopes that she gets it. Some of Nicki Minaj’s fans, aka Barbz. have started attacking Safaree accusing him of stalking Minaj on social media.

If you wait to your mid 30’s to pick up a habit and show it off like it’s cool, you need help. I feel sorry for you. Stop,” Safaree said. He didn’t name anyone when making his statement but everyone already point fingers towards the Young Money rapper. Nicki doesn’t seems like the hardcore smoking type so perhaps she was just hanging with friends and just taking a hit off something. Safaree even said it that Nicki wasn’t a smoker when they were together. Perhaps he is just concerned about her well being.

Watch the video below.

50 Cent Continues Trolling Tyrese Over Will and Jada $5 Million Lie

50 Cent got his hands on more material to troll Tyrese on social media.

In case you do not know, Tyrese has been going through a lot over the past couple of weeks, with allegations from his ex-wife that he abused their 10-year-old daughter. She eventually got out a restraining order against him that triggered a bitter custody battle. At one point, Tyrese posted a video on Instagram of himself crying over the ordeal but that’s not all that went down. He later posted that Will and Jada Smith gave him $5 million to help with his legal fees because he is broke. 50 Cent trolled the Baby Boy actor for crying on the Gram.

Turns out the Will and Jada story was a lie and 50 Cent has already pounced on it. Sources say Will Smith has denied Tyrese story saying that the couple never gave him the money. The rapper posted a screenshot of the story on Balleralert. “Wait so this fool just made some sh*t up. LOL Will like I ain’t give him that #50centralbet tonight 10:30 PM on BET,” 50 Cent wrote. He then posted a video of the R&B singer saying he is waiting on the wire for his Will Smith check. The clip is a mashup of movies scenes from both Tyrese and Will Smith and it’s hilarious.

Tyrese is proclaiming that he is broke and cannot even afford to pay his legal fees but celebrities have been known to portray being broke to avoid paying an enormous child support. In this case, Gibson’s baby mama is asking for a reported $80,000 per month. So clearly, he does not want to be paying that enormous amount in child support, so he is wining and squealing down to the very end hoping that the judge will have sympathy on his and significantly lower the child support amount that his baby mama is asking for.

Wait so ?this fool just made some shit up. LOL Will like I ain't give him that ?#50centralbet tonight 10:30 PM on BET

Lil Uzi Vert & Nav New Single “Wanted You” Drops Tomorrow

Lil Uzi Vert and Nav have teamed up for a new single “Wanted You” dropping on Friday, but will likely be released on Thursday night.

The XO artist announced the track on Instagram on Wednesday telling his fans it’s coming tomorrow night. The Toronto singer joined forces with Metro Boomin during the summer to release a new project titled Perfect Timing. Since then he has kept a low profile but that’s about to change. Lil Uzi Vert has developed a close working relationship with the XO family through touring with The Weeknd. One of the biggest singles of his career is titled “XO Tour Life.”

Nav posted the artwork for the single “Wanted You” around two hours ago on IG with the caption, “Tomorrow night.” He didn’t reveal any additional details about the project other than to confirm that it’s coming on Thursday night. Seems like it will be a banger too so stay tuned to because we will be posting it as soon as it drops midnight tomorrow night. He didn’t reveal who is the producer behind the record but we all know that Nav likes to handle the productions for his singles so don’t be surprised if he is also credited as the producer.

Lil Uzi Vert and Nav have worked together in the past including on a few singles off the Perfect Timing project in July. Uzi Vert is featured on the singles “A$AP Ferg” and “NAVUZIMETRO#PT2.” Nav celebrated his 28th birthday in Toronto last weekend and you can bet that this single was on repeat at the party. “This last year been the best year of my life Wanna thank everyone who helped it be that way,” he told his fans on Instagram. Lil Uzi Vert also released his debut solo album Luv Is Rage 2 during the summer.

Vanessa Bling On Cardi B Cosign “She always support my music”

Cardi B gave Vanessa Bling a big cosign last month when Offset drop a half a million dollar engagement ring on her finger.

Shortly after getting her ring, Cardi B posted a video showing off her 8-karat rock while listening to Vanessa Bling 2011 dancehall banger “Everything Fi Hold Him.” Bardi got a lot of shoutout from her Jamaican fan base for posting the clip and now she is getting some major props from Vanessa Bling herself.

“Cardi B always support my music even before she buss and get big in the music business,” Bling said. “I rate her and love how she’s a true hustler. She’s a real girl and I’m glad for her. I love how she never give up and always kept pushing for greatness.”

Cardi B is currently working on a collaboration with Vanessa Bling’s former mentor Vybz Kartel. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper was in Jamaica last week shooting a new music video with Rvssian and doing some recording for her upcoming album. Do you think Cardi B and Vanessa Bling should work on a collaboration?

Bling has been touring extensively Europe and Africa over the past couple of weeks and so far she said the journey has been great. She posted a pic of herself yesterday in Jerusalem praying. “Today is a happy day for me #Jerusalem this is where my Father was put to rest I only see this place on TV Christmas time. Now am here DEAR LORD I THANK YOU,” she wrote.

Meek Mill Reacts To Prison Sentence For Probation Violation

Meek Mill is taking his 2-4 years prison sentence for probation violation positively.

The “Dreams and Nightmares” rapper has shared his reaction to news that he is going back to prison and could be gone for a while. “We go to war for our freedom,” he wrote on Instagram on Monday. “They say we equal I used to wanna play I like Randall and be a Eagle I used to play the quarterback my homie would go receiver that was until the football got flattened by a dope needle on the pavement.”

Meek Mill turned up to court in Philadelphia on Monday with his attorney, Brian McMonagle, where he learned his fate. A judge ruled that he violated his probation when he got arrested in St. Louis earlier this year for an alleged fight with an airport employee, and again this summer in New York City for popping wheelies on his motorcycle in the streets of NY. He was charged with assault in the St. Louis case and for reckless driving and endangerment for the New York case.

Both charges were eventually dropped after he took a plea deal, but the judge rule that he violated his parole just by getting arrested. This is a big blow to Meek Mill who has been rehabilitating his image over the last few years with a number of charitable initiatives and getting more involve in his community. Meek has been getting some support from some of his celebrity peers like Kevin Hart who shared a supporting message.

“Praying for my brother [Meek Mill] right now,” Hart wrote. “God sometimes puts the toughest battles on his strongest soldiers. I’m here for you man!!!! My brother for life… Always here for you man!!! This storm will pass… Stay strong & keep your head up.”

Meek Mill will have to serve a minimum of two years in prison for violating his probation and could serve as much as four years.

We go to war for our freedom … they say we equal …. i used to wanna play i like Randall and be a Eagle …. i used to play the quarterback my homie would go receiver … that was until the football got flattened by a dope needle … on the pavement

Lil Yachty Explains Why He Wear A ‘F**k Joe Budden’ Shirt On Stage

Lil Yachty and Joe Budden will not be making peace anytime soon.

The “Teenage Emotions” rapper and the Everyday Struggle co-host have been beefing for a couple months now thanks to an interview Yachty did on the talk show. Budden famously bashed the young rapper for having an overly positive demeanor, something he calls irritating and BS. Lil Yachty never forgave him for attacking him unnecessary and now he is trolling the Slaughter House rapper in a very direct way.

Lil Yachty was performing in Toronto recently when a fan threw a hoodie on stage and when he saw what was written on it he put it on. “Lol a fan through on stage from the crowd and I put it on, cuz what a hater gotta say that’s why, all dese broke ni**as lucky it’s free to make a comment on someone’s post,” Yachty explains. “Cus if u had to pay to make a statement.. it would be a lot less talk.”

During his performance he egged on the audience to shout “f**k Joe Budden.” We will surely get a response from the talk show host tomorrow morning on his show Everyday Struggle. He also told the audience that these old heads like Budden need to stop “f**king with these young n****s.” This is a clear message to the rap veteran and any other hater that no matter what Lil Yachty will live his life the way he sees fit. These two rappers could easily address this beef in the studio but the only problem is that Joe is now longer an active rapper and is more like a hip hop critic these days. So the only thing left to do is for them to troll each other on social media or use their respective platforms to take shot at each other.

Nipsey Hussle Thrown Behind Bars For Illegal Parking

Nipsey Hussle found himself behind bars on Monday night for a few hours all because of his driving habits.

The first thing that happened that drew police officers to the rapper was that his car was illegally parked in a handicap spot. The patrolling officer ran his plates and found a slew of outstanding warrants for his arrest, TMZ reported. All of the warrants were for traffic violations so he was cuffed and hauled off to jail by the LAPD at around 9 p.m. PST.

By around 5 a.m. on Tuesday he bonded out of jail and went home. Nipsey Hussle immediately went back in the studio unbothered, but something tells me he will have to fork out some cash to take care of all that traffic offenses. He later posted a video on Instagram.

“I just bailed out on some bulls**t traffic warrants,” the rapper said. “What y’all doing at 5 in the morning? I slept with 77th on a cold-ass bench, and I’m back in the lab. Ni**a, y’all can’t knock my vibe right now, can’t take my inspiration at all. It’s not going to happen.”

You probably can expect an anti-LAPD track coming out soon from Nipsey.

#nipseyhussle won't let the LAPD stop him
