Video directed by APJ Films

The duo of Ceno and Trav, otherwise known as the Chicago faction Sicko Mobb, have been at the forefront of Chicago music for the past three-plus years. They’ve seen much success commercially and critically, having secured publishing deals with Sony and record deals with Polo Grounds/RCA — but 2016 is set to be their biggest year to date. Why? Because their major label debut is finally slated for release. And quite possibly their biggest single to date, “Expensive Taste,” featuring Jeremih, has been taking off online and on radio.

The track made a huge splash a few months back when it impacted, and forced the Mobb to get back with Jeremih to film the official music video which was shot by Aaron Perkins Jr. This also could be Sicko’s dopest video to date, as all sides truly went crazy to make this riveting visual a masterpiece.

To celebrate this high profile world premiere of “Expensive Taste,” we sat down with Trav and Ceno for a interview where we discuss their major label debut, its impending release, how Bop is perceived in 2016, and if Super Saiyan 4 is a possibility. Hit the jump for the interview and the “Expensive Taste” video.

Fresh off announcing that the incredible Late Nights: The Album has struck gold, Jeremih strikes again — with some primetime placement in Apple TV’s brand new commercial spot, which prominently features his monstrous single “Oui.” Now, this isn’t just his song being lightly played in the background — this commercial is built around the track — which is crazy. A prominent placement in a dope commercial.

Check it out below, and be sure to grab Late Nights on Apple Music. Ha!

Jeremih’s ‘Late Nights: The Album’ Goes Gold


Congrats are definitely in order for our homie Jeremih, as his stellar album, Late Nights, has allegedly gone gold. Now, you know I swear by this album, and I don’t think a better project has dropped since this impacted in December, but there was a universal disappointment surrounding its release, as it only moved 14,000 copies in its first week. That number still makes me scratch my head in confusion, but I digress.

We can all agree that the actual release of the project was a mess (not to mention the maddening amount of delays), but it appears this story has a happy ending as the RIAA has certified Late Nights: The Album gold. How, you ask? Well, it appears streaming has played a major part in pushing the album to certification, due to the RIAA’s revamped qualifications.

The album has yet to show up on the RIAA’s website, but Headline Planet — a very credible source — has confirmed that it’s a real thing. Jeremih also announced the certification via his Instagram page.

Congrats to Jeremih, Def Jam and if you don’t have this album already, please go cop it (or stream it).

While not yet added to the RIAA’s official website, two gold album certifications were recently issued.

The recipients of those certifications? Chris Brown’s “Royalty” and Jeremih’s “Late Nights: The Album.”

First reported by Billboard, the distinctions confirm US unit totals of at least 500,000. Under the revamped album certification terms, one unit is equal to 1 album sale, 10 track sales, or 1500 track streams.

“Late Nights” officially arrived on December 4, 2015. “Royalty” was released on December 18, 2015.
