A$AP Rocky Brings Out Vic Mensa for “U Mad,” Performs Chief Keef’s “Superheroes” @ Lollapalooza

The A$AP Mob closed out Lollapalooza last night, with a set that went on despite severe weather threats. Rocky’s set was bumped up to insure he got to perform before the impending storm hit the city. And as always, Rocky showed a lot of love to the Chi.

He ran through Keef’s hit “Faneto,” and then brought out Vic Mensa (who was everywhere this weekend, literally) to perform “U Mad.” Later in his set, Rocky performed his newly released collaboration with Chief Keef titled “Superheroes” (from Bang 3 — listen here). It was wild, and he got a fresh set off before the lightening touched down. Later in the evening, Vic and the A$AP Mob headed over to Reggies to perform at Hustle Simmons’ ‘Hustlepalooza.’

Check out clips above and below.

DJ Absolut f/ Kanye West, Raekwon, Consequence & Havoc – If I Shoot You (Remix)

unnamed-1

Produced by Kanye West

Okay, so technically this song isn’t new. This joint is like 10+ years old. But I’ve never heard it sans tags, or with all of these artists on the same version. I’ve either heard it with just Beans on it (he’s not on this version), or Raekwon, or Cons. But not all at the same time. It was a mixtape staple back when anything Kanye breathed on was landing placements. Actually, that still holds true in 2015, so not much has changed.

I’m guessing this beat was on one of his early beat tapes that everyone in the industry had, and all these emcees just happened to record to it and Absolut stitched it together. I could be wrong, though. Either way, it’s nice to hear it crisp, clear and (somewhat) completed. This is vintage Ye production, and I most definitely miss this sound. Those days are long gone, but take a walk down memory lane below.

Chief Keef & Lil Durk – Sumo

chief-keef-lil-durk-sumo

“Are you sumo flexin? Are you sumo flexin? When you pull up do you hop out like you’re sumo wrestling?”

Durk and Sosa back together again? Indeed. And it appears that with this chemistry in tact, the idea of a collabo project from these two actually happening could be a reality. It would be big. Sumo big. And that’s the whole point of this joint — they’re throwing their weight around. Quite literally. Catch that body slam below. Sumo, sumo.
