Will Tame Impala Release a New Album in 2018?

Since 2010, there hasn’t been a bigger psychedelic pop band than the Kevin Parker led Tame Impala. Hailing in from Australia, Tame Impala has dominated a genre first paved by The Beatles, further cultivated by Pink Floyd and The Flaming Lips, and nuanced by contemporaries such as MGMT and Animal Collective. And with their last album, 2015’s Currents, Tame Impala became unstoppable...

Listen to Eminem’s New Freestyle “The Storm”

It’s been over four years since Eminem dropped The Marshall Mathers LP 2, a ferocious album containing some of his hardest tracks, including “Rap God” and “Berzerk”. But The Marshall Mathers LP 2 doesn’t even come close to what we’ve seen from the iconic Detroit rapper since. This past October, just before the election, Eminem dropped “Campaign...

On last night’s episode of the HBO original series Insecure, the alternative R&B singer Kelela debuted the second single from her forthcoming album, Take Me Apart (due Oct. 6). The new single, titled “Frontline“, is far less upbeat than its preceding track “LMK“, but is no less innovative and addicting to the ear.

Is Nicki Minaj Getting Ready to Release a New Album?

Nicki Minaj has recently been all over the hip-hop beef circuit because of her latest diss to Remy Ma in “No Frauds” feat. Lil Wayne and Drake. Though “No Frauds” vibes on a decidedly pop sound, make no mistake, Nicki Minaj took some pretty vicious blows at Remy Ma, who also represents the New York rap game. Just yesterday, Nicki teased a music video for “No...

Noname Performs on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series

This past year, Chicago rapper Noname—born Fatimah Warner—appeared on NPR’s list of the top 50 albums of 2016 for her debut Telefone.  The album features fellow hip-hop artists Raury, Saba, Smino, and more. Telefone employs bright melodies and bouncy rhythms to ease the pain of Noname’s darker subject matter embedded in her lyrics. But what is overwhelmingly true about...

A Review of Drake’s ‘More Life’ Playlist

This past Saturday, Drake dropped the highly anticipated body of work More Life on OVO Sound Radio. More Life is a collection of tracks that proclaims to be a playlist, not an album or mixtape like he’s released in the past. The distinction has been a little confusing for fans and critics, and since Billboard declared that playlists are eligible to appear on the album chart...

Will Eminem Release a New Album in 2017?

Last week, Eminem dropped his first new solo track in three years, a politically charged track which throws shade in several different directions. The nearly 8-minute long song, titled “Campaign Speech“, staggers on without a beat, while Eminem spits fire over a barely there backing buzz. His words, often venomous, are nonetheless fueled with his expert, rapid fire rap style. It seems...

Gorillaz Tease New Album and Debut ‘The Book of Noodle’

It’s been six years since the world’s first virtual hip-hop group released their fourth LP Plastic Beach, but after taking the next installment of Noodle’s story to Twitter, it seems that we can start gearing up for the Gorillaz to debut their fifth studio album.
