Coachella reconvened last night for week two of the festival, and during The Weeknd’s second set in two weeks, he brought Lord Yeezus to the stage for a surprise performance. Abel did a cover of Kanye’s “Heartless” and Ye then stormed the stage to do a handful of his fan favorites (“Black Skinhead,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothin”) and new records (“All Day”). Watch a quick recap of his scene-stealing performance above and below

A major thank you to everyone who attended our show with Red Bull Sound Select this past Thursday night in Chicago. We sold out Reggies yet again with our eighth installment of the series, which brought the man right chea, better known as Mystikal, to the Windy City to shut it down alongside some of our best homegrown talent including Martin $ky, Tree and Chris Crack.
It was an eventful night and we brought out some of the city’s dopest fans for a fun evening. Crucial Conflict showed up as did Saba. Martin $ky performed atop the bar, and Tree Crack had a bubble machine. If you missed it, shame on you, but we have you covered with some recap videos above and below.
Check them out and check back for more details on our June show.
Dem Floss Boyz always keep it, well, lit. That’s a duh. But if you want to crank it up a notch you go ahead and recruit the King of Crunk for a feature alongside GTA. Are Floss the new Eastside Boyz? Only if we’re lucky.
Flosstradamus’ Soundclash EP drops April 20th. Check out “Prison Riot” below.
It’s been a minute since we’ve had some new material on here from Pinqy Ring on FSD, and today she returns with a brand new one titled “Lipstick” with a MAC makeup sponsorship, to boot. Now that’s major.
Lipstick is Pinqy Ring’s call back to what rap is about – hard bars, punch lines, metaphors and a dope flow! The premise behind the song can be summed up with the line in the chorus that states: “I’ll chew you up and spit you out without smearing my lipstick!”
The song is just all around dope rap, as Pinqy Ring – a student of Hip Hop – wanted to reclaim her lyrical prowess with a feminine feel. This is her reminder that she’s still an MC, and can rap just as well as any man (or woman) can.
Lipstick is also the woman rap movement, in summary: We can be witty, intelligent, lyrical, boss-like and still rock some fierce faces. The video (releasing in a few weeks) will feature many different girls and women, as a unifying message of “Whatever you can do we can do better – and look beautiful doing it!”
