While down at SXSW, Mick Jenkins sat down with Complex TV to talk about a number of subjects including his last project, The Water[s], what he has in store for his next opus, getting a phone call from Timbaland, bad music and much more.
One of the best parts is where Mick reveals the ills of the behind the scenes politics of the music industry. But he also discusses his new EP, which features work with Kaytranada and THEMpeople. An interesting watch for sure.
Glo Gang compadres, Ballout and Tadoe, decided to form a group within the crew, and this faction gives us the Rise Of The Glo Gang Empire — a 10 song album featuring these two artists tag-teaming over some of the most hard-hitting and trunk-rattling beats you’ve heard in a while. Enter their Empire state of mind below.
Buy it on iTunes as well.
Hometown hero, Tink, recently stopped by 107.5 WGCI’s latest incarnation of their morning show, now titled Kyle, Kendra and Leon, to talk about a slew of topics. Most interestingly, Timbaland’s recent comments comparing Tink to the late, great Aaliyah, working with Timbaland, ratchet commandments, female rappers and more. Check out the video clip above.
It’s that time of the week again. Do remember, that if the song dropped anytime since last Friday (we had last week off because we were at SXSW) it’s eligible for the list. Now we aren’t saying these are the BEST songs of the week, but they are the staff’s faves and joints you can catch us bumping in the office.

Ms. Guy puts her spin on the current hit, “Water Whip.” This. Is. The. Remix.
Shawnna has two tapes on the horizon, her solo shot La Miconia, as well as her long-waited collbo album with Twista, Bonnie & Clyde. Keep an eye open for both of those in 2015. But for now, whip it good.
Super dope Virginia producer, Izze, drops off a brand new single featuring frequent collaborators Lil Durk, DC Young Fly and AD. VA, Chi-Town, Compton and the ATL all connect on here. From coast to coast every gang is the same.
Durk takes a hot record, and pours some gasoline on it, engulfing the whole town. Game over, faneto. Listen to him burn the block down with his very own version of “Faneto.”
Do remember, Durk’s new album, Remember My Name, is due out on May 12th via Def Jam Records.
