Here is a dope new weekend roundup of a variety of news and tidbits that happened amongst all the #YeezySeason mania that is going on, hah!
First off, up above, De La Soul performed live with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon. Above is the feel-good "A Rollerskating Jam Named Saturdays" and "Jenifa Taught Me" can be viewed here. De La's got a new album coming out (!) entitled You're Welcome, slated for this Fall.
An intriguing upcoming collab was announced — Mario & Nicki Minaj! Mario revealed the single on the way, produced by Polow Da Don, via a handwritten note from the heart (seen below). May 21st, you can expect to hear this.
The day before (i.e. tomorrow), T.I. will release his new single with Lil Wayne "Wit Me". You can catch the teaser trailer from last Friday here and peep the new single art below.
And below that, you'll notice the tracklist to Ludacris' upcoming mixtape, IDGAF. There's plenty of big-name features on the 10-track opus, set to be released May 24th. Whew! How bout that for some quick-hit news?!
Wait, one late addition: Action Bronson tweeted a collab project with Harry Fraud called Saab Stories will be impacting early June.
From Mario himself: "Somebody Else" f/ Nicki Minaj drops Tuesday, May 21st
T.I. "Wit Me" f/ Lil Wayne single and music video drops tomorrow, May 20th!
Ludacris 'IDGAF' mixtape dropping May 24th (front cover here)
Alex Wiley pays homage to the famous Icky Shuffle from former Bengals star Icky Woods with this new track off #ClubWiley featuring Action Bronson and produced by Thelonious Martin. Love the reference, hah! I think Wiley kills it with the fast flow and delivery and enjoyed his rhymes a little more than the more well-known Bronson. Lookin' forward to #ClubWiley dropping through Closed Sessions on June 4th.
It's called The Space Migration Tour, and Mac Miller is set to go on the road with a lot of buzzing artists such as Chicago's very own Chance The Rapper. Chance will be with Mac on all of the tour's dates over the summer, with Meek Mill, Action Bronson, Earl Sweatshirt, and Mac's REMember Music artists like Njomza to appear on select the dates. Shaping up to be a good group of artists for a complete show. Check out the complete dates below (no Chicago date yet).
The tour will coincide nicely with Mac's upcoming album, Movies With The Sound Off, dropping June 18th.
