Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

A “fun” fact about me is that I have never seen a football game. I’ve seen clips, of course, but not enough to really understand the rules or know any players. One thing I do understand, though, is Coldplay. So I’m super pumped for Sunday. See you at Blochead’s house. #BetterHalftimeShows why not just have […]

Gun Outfit – “King Of Hearts”

Gun Outfit just released their most recent full-length, Dream All Over, in October, but the Olympia band is quickly following that up with a new EP, Two Way Player. We’ve already heard “Expansion Pact” and “Make Me Promise” from the upcoming release, and today they’ve shared a third track, “King Of Hearts,” which features the […]

Meek Mill Placed On 90-Day House Arrest

Amid his ongoing beef with Drake (which bafflingly continues even though Drake clearly won), Meek Mill has had some more important matters to deal with. According to The FADER, a Philadelphia judge found him guilty of violating his parole in December, and today he was sentenced to a 90-day house arrest to begin on 3/1. […]

Majid Jordan – “King City” Video

Majid Jordan’s self-titled debut album is out today. To mark the occasion, the Drake affiliates have shared a new video for “King City,” a ballad that promotes the same breathy, pillowy aesthetic they lent to “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” but slower and with way more synth ripples. Director Common Good’s video tracks the end […]

Sheer Mag – “Can’t Stop Fighting”

Sheer Mag made waves with their first two EPs, and now the gritty, classic rock-indebted Philly band are back with another new song, “Can’t Stop Fighting.” Presumably the precursor to an upcoming release, the song uses Christina Halladay’s authoritative voice in the same way all the rest of the band’s songs do, espousing a rousing, […]

Kanye Will Pay You To Be An Extra At His Album Release Fashion Show

Official Bob Marley Brand Cannabis Launches Today

The two things I remember most from my trip to Jamaica are Bob Marley and weed because both were ubiquitous. I know it may seem like a cliché or stereotypical view, but Marley is truly all over murals and T-shirts and his music can be heard wafting through the air along with the smell of […]

A$AP Rocky Voices Falcon In Marvel Avengers Academy Video Game

A$AP Rocky voices the superhero Falcon in the new Marvel Avengers Academy mobile game, as Spin points out.

Smoke DZA – “Morals” (Feat. Snoop Dogg)

I tend to get kind of nervous whenever rappers use a biblical reference to title their works because they rarely live up to the lofty expectation the name aspires to. Harlem traditionalist Smoke DZA and Brooklyn producer Harry Fraud have linked for their collab album He Has Risen, and the first single, “Morals,” is not […]

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

We’re two days removed from the Super Bowl and — more importantly, at least for the purposes of this column — the Super Bowl halftime show, in which many, many people will work very hard to make a terrible, corny spectacle happen. The halftime show will doubtless be more explosive and brain-searing than all of […]
