TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT

Fresh off rocking back-to-back shows with Soulja Boy in Chicago and Denver, we return for our fourth Red Bull Sound Select show of 2016 — this time with Playboi Carti headlining. He’s red hot right now, and one of the leaders of the new school, so it’s only right we bring Cash Carti to the Chi.

It goes down TONIGHT, Thursday August 25th at the Double Door. Doors open at 8pm, and the show is 18+. Per usual, it’s a $3 with RSVP — $10 without. It’s affordable for all us broke boi’s and broke girls out there. So be sure to RSVP and save some cash. This show WILL sell out, so be sure to handle that ASAP. Early arrival is strongly suggested.

Rounding out the bill is fellow Red Bull Sound Select artist Finding Novyon, who will be making the trip down from Minneapolis, and will be performing his hits such as “Let’s Get Lit” and select cuts from his newly released Believe In MPLS project.

Holding it down for Chicago is newcomer Nina Tech, who has quickly become one of our favorite artists with great visuals like “Nina Knapsack” and tracks like “Run Around.” She’s going to show and prove TONIGHT, believe that.

Finally, someguynamedty will be DJing, as always, so please believe it will be a night to remember.

Video: Mick Jenkins f/BADBADNOTGOOD – Drowning

mick-jenkins-badbadnotgood-drowning-video-0

Produced by BADBADNOTGOOD. Directed by Nathan R. Smith.

The release of Mick Jenkins’ debut album, The Healing Component is finally upon us, and Mick decided to take today to release the LP’s first visual, as well as the coverart and ridiculously stacked tracklist. As much as The Water[s] brought Mick into greater discussions on artists to watch in the game, this next release could set the stage for a huge 2017 for him. This video alone should get the internet buzzing with discussions and dissertations. Check it out, along with the album’s tracklist and official coverart after the jump.

The Healing Component will feature credits from Noname, Sango, Ravyn Lenae, Kaytranada, theMIND, Cam O’bi, Monte Booker, and more. Yeah, stacked. Release is set for September 23rd, but you can pre-order on iTunes tonight starting at midnight.

Warhol.ss has been unquestionably hot lately. Every few days he appears to slide another banger onto the interwebs. This week’s joint serves as a reminder of what Warhol.ss is dealing with: all hunnids.

Is this also acting as an official announcement that he’s joined Atlanta’s 3200 clique? Only time will tell, but he’s obviously close with member Kevin Pollari, so the connection is there. For now though, check out Warhol.ss’ latest after the jump.

New Project: Tink – Winter’s Diary 4

Cqt28gFW8AAhoKK

The fourth installment of Tink’s storied Winter’s Diary release series is here — on the 15th anniversary of Aaliyah’s death no less. Coincidence? Perhaps. But a fitting dedication, nonetheless. Even though I’m not with the Aaliyah comparisons because Tink is very much her own artist.

But I digress.

On Part 4, she truly gets back to basics, and today it’s a full blown winter storm in August. Let it all fall down with her latest release, which plays out like an album instead of a mixtape. I’m only a few tracks in and it’s already sounding amazing.

Timbaland, Lil Durk, C-Sick, 1500 or Nothin and Cookin’ Soul all show up to contribute. Feel the cold breeze below.
