No April Fools, but tonight the Lord Yeezus put his Australian tour dates on the back burner in order to finish his forthcoming album. Good news for us, bad news for the land down under.

A statement released to Live Nation Australia reads:

”Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia.”

Hopefully we’ll see that album this year. Perhaps this summer?

Lucki Ecks – All Senses

Produced by Hot Sugar

Lucki’s drops are few and far between, but when he tosses something out it always packs a lot of punch. No light jabs, strictly uppercuts. Every detail is carefully combed over, leaving no flaws exposed. Attention to detail is key. All senses must be in sync.

A short while back, Lucki connected with RTC and Mike Kolar at the world famous Soundscape Studios to craft “All Senses,” which is an official Closed Sessions release. You probably saw the documentary which dropped a few weeks back. Lucki cuffed Hot Sugar’s instrumental and made magic over it, and today it’s finally ready to share with the world. It’s aptly titled, “All Senses.”

This will land on the forthcoming Closed Sessions Vol. 3 project, which will be out later this year. You can also catch Lucki Ecks on tour with Danny Brown, which will be coming to a city near you soon enough. Check out the song below, and buy tickets to The Old Danny Brown Tour right here.

Interview by Keith Reid-Cleveland (@kreid_c)

Lil Bibby is the newest promising face to be attached to Chicago’s music scene. Free Crack, his first and only mixtape, was released at the end of November and has reached almost 800,000 views on LiveMixtapes.com since then. Showing some perfectionist tendencies, Bibby wasn’t satisfied with those numbers. Having received cosigns from the likes of Drake, Mac Miller, Juicy J and many more respected people within the industry, Bibby is looking to have a strong 2014 starting with the release of The Book, his upcoming EP. Bibby talked to Fake Shore Drive about the EP, how he deals with his rise to fame and why being at South by Southwest may have been the worst experience of his life thus far.
