ZMoney made his presence felt down in Austin last week, as he was seemingly at all of the major events, and even posted up for a whole evening at Ruth Chris to take meetings. Boss move. Fact TV was able to catch up with the Westside don for a quick interview, where he gives us the play by play on his three mixtape trilogy, 3MPIRE, which drops this summer. Oh yeah, and Danny Brown is a fan. Recognize.

Towards the end of our interview as I was packing up my equipment I asked ShowYouSuck (Clinton Sanford) when he first heard he had his own Wikipedia page. “I have a Wikipedia page?” was his truly awestruck reply. He drew his iPhone with the speed of a old west gunslinger and eagerly starting flipping through his profile. “This is so awesome,” he enthused, “I’m going to add so many rumors and shit that isn’t true to this.”
The Blended Babies give ZZ Ward’s “365 Days” a breath of new life with the remix, which features new verses from Ash Roth and King Chip
Tha Ripper. This one’s good 24-7, 365. Spotted at Vibe.

We’ve been waiting for another collaboration from Sasha Go Hard and Diplo since hearing “Damn” from Round 3 and today, we finally get one. Sasha and Diplo’s latest collab, “Out The Bottle”, will appear on Sasha’s new untitled project due out sometime in May. We need an EP from Sasha and Diplo — it’s only right.
If you’re in Cali this weekend, be sure to catch Sasha alongside Lil Herb and Lil Bibby in L.A. this Friday and San Diego Saturday at Somewhere Loud.
The Rapping Bastard is at again. Vic Spence combines Devin The Dude’s “Don’t Stop”, Diddy’s “Hold Up” and Laws’ “Love Today” to craft the backdrop for “Boxing Grizzly Bears”. This joint is the latest drop from Vic and yet another display of his lyrical ability. And now a few words from the man himself:
Art is the shit, man. It gets people wondering. It get the guys that have ‘panties in a bunch’ aroused. If you don’t get people to observe your art, they may not look long enough. And Boxing Grizzly Bears is exposing that.
Press play and box a few Grizzlies with Vic below. Look for Vic’s Vision Pipes with emcee/producer Rocket to impact later this year.
DotKom, a.k.a. one half of the Chicago duo theWHOevers, brings the old school back with this new solo shot, “Bees In The Back,” which has absolutely nothing to do with the swarm from Shaolin. But yo, I don’t know much about D.Jbari (he produced the track as well), but he sounds raw asl — and very much like the 2014 version of Lord Have Mercy.
This joint will land on DotKom’s B.U.M. album, due out this year.
Produced by Paris Beuller.
Durk’s been quietly working on his follow-up to 2013′s Signed To The Streets and tonight, we get the first taste of what to expect from it with the release of “10K”. This record wasn’t supposed to be out yet according to Durk, but someone decided to go ahead and let it fly.
This joint’s mean. Check out “10K” below. Signed To The Streets 2 coming soon.
Closing out day four of Red Bull’s ’4 Days In Austin’ concert series during SXSW week was Lucki Ecks, who joined the likes of Danny Brown, Mannie Fresh, Kydd Jones and A.Dd+ to rock the crowd. Lucki took the stage prior to Danny Brown, and brought his unique brand of Alternative Trap to the at-capacity audience.
Luck’s set was well received by the Austin crowd, and you can now listen to the performance in its entirety below. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements from Danny Brown and Lucki Ecks in the coming days/weeks. You’ve been warned.
Both Tink and Lil Herb also performed earlier in the week, and you can check their sets over at the Sound Select site.

March Madness continues for Logan, as he drops another joint in anticipation of his debut headlining show at Reggie’s on 4/20. He’s calling this one “Memories,” and it deals with the trials and tribulations of life and using that as fuel to build yourself into something greater. Motivation music. Memorize “Memories” and check out Logan at Reggie’s on April 20th.
Logan will be headlining for the first time next month 4/20 at Chicago’s Reggie’s Rock Club ( 2109 S State St. Chicago, IL). This event is supported by Jugrnaut & Classick Studios, with supporting sets by Saba (of Pivot Gang), St. Millie, Jay2 ‘The KiDD Classic’, and Jonny Wild. We are expecting a sell out, tickets are still available online, at Jugrnaut, and Classick Studios. Be on the lookout for his following release 3/25/14.
It’s that time of year again: Lollapalooza headliner rumor season. But today a very credible source passed along the “confirmed” headliners of this years show taking place August 1-3 in Grant Park to Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune. The bad news? No Outkast. I’m not feeling that. One. Bit. The lineup won’t officially be released until next week, but Kot spoke with a reliable source and here’s what they’ve relayed:
The lineup for Lollapalooza’s 10th year Aug. 1-3 in Grant Park won’t be announced until next week, but industry sources confirm that the headliners will include Eminem, Skrillex, Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys.
Lollapalooza, which last year drew a capacity audience of 300,000 to the three-day festival, will mark return visits for all four bands. Additional headliners and the complete lineup will be announced next week.
Still bummed about ‘Kast. Oh well. Check back next week (or sooner) for full details.
