Logic is one of the most talented artists in the game right now, and the video above will show you why you should check him out at a venue near you. The House of Blues show in Chicago was a sold out, high energy orchastration, where Logic performed hits from his whole catalog along with a heavy emphasis on his new project "Welcome To Forever". Throughout the show he spoke of peace, love, and positivity — a message I appreciate his help in spreading, in combination with incredible lyrical ability, break-fast delivery, and a fiery authenticity that what he says, he means.
Just coming off his own tour, Logic also jumps on board 'The Cud Life Tour' where he'll open up alongside Tyler The Creator for the moon man Kid Cudi. All three artists have amazing live shows where they get the crowd extra hype, which is why I believe this is going to be one of the best tours this year. In conclusion I'll let the video speak for itself, with one final statement: Gowhere Hip Hop <3's Logic!

There is more to Skylar Grey than being a wonderful singer and songwriter. She has a wide range in her personality and music that are both seen in our interview and in her performance at a sold-out Schubas earlier this week.
After getting the chance to talk with Skylar and experience the concert in such an intimate setting, I became even more of a fan and further appreciate her artistry, complexities, authenticity, and overall style. Watch our new documentary style production above, in what is one of my favorite interviews to date.
Skylar Grey's debut album, Don't Look Down, is in stores now!
Skylar Grey reveals:
- the influence of hip hop on her music and album
- the first hip hop album she ever bought
- a new story about working with Eminem on the album (02:19)
- her first reaction to Lupe's direction on "Words I Never Said" (04:05)
- the different personalities that are conveyed on the album
The Skylar Grey concert last night was one of my favorite shows I've seen this summer. Hearing her perform is a blessing for anyone that gets the chance; her epic live vocals will move you in ways a recorded album can't. While I got the chance to record her sing the roof off with singles on the new album "Don't Look Down", I was most excited about releasing this straight through shot of her peformance of "Invisible". I think it's a beautiful piece, and something I'm in love with artistically. Of course stay tuned for our interview with Skylar, which will have more clips of her bangin' vocals from some of her biggest singles and features. Skylar — hope our paths cross again; you are an awesome creator, and we love what you do! #gowhereyoulove
A few days ago we got the chance to talk with G.O.O.D. Music's very own Cyhi The Prynce before his performance at Webster Hall in NYC. We decided to get a little personal with our questions and Cyhi had no problem being completely honest with his answers. So hit the play button to hear what The Prynce had to say.
BUMP: Be sure to check out our newest exclusive video — TGT out in L.A.! With an abnormally busy weekend of content kickstarted by #YeezySeason, we want to make sure this didn't get lost in the shuffle!

It's been a big couple of days for TGT as the R&B supergroup consisting of Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tankas they just released their new video for "Sex Ain't Never Felt Better" and took over 106 & Park today with the premiere. Plus, they'll be coming to a city near you this summer on the "3 Kings Tour" when their debut album drops (dates here).
Our Gowhere L.A. team was on site during the filming of the music video and talked with the trio on the set above. The video spotlights some raw behind the scenes footage of the making of the video, while Tyrese leads the way in describing the "art imitates life" concept for the music video. "We look at R&B music as a form of escapism," adds Tyrese.
I'd like to add that I resonate with these concepts and what Tyrese was saying in this interview. In general, it's great to hear these three come together for a classic, contemporary R&B record like "Sex Never Felt Better" and surely more good music like this to come.
Lastly, also tune in for the fun story about how the song itself was created. Tank shares the details of how Tyrese came up with the hook and it's a never-before-heard look into the creative process, which is always cool to find out about. And oh yeah, this time next week... they mention it... and I'll be there... Fast 6 in theatres!
Shoutout to Terrence Jones & Hona Costello on the making of this video out in L.A. After watching above, go ahead and watch the final product INCYMI below!
I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to sit down with MoShadee after his show at The Flat in Brooklyn. MoShadee has some big things happening to him in the near future. He leaves the country for France in a few weeks to meet up with the other half of CM Jones, DJ Creestal. They will be keeping busy and laying down some serious work doing shows, radio interviews, and whatever else may come their way. We will be supporting them all the way.
In our interview we spoke about the formation of CM Jones, his upcoming trip to France, the upcoming project, ‘Perfect Hand Off,’ and the importance of getting that new project printed on vinyl. Check out the interview and get excited for what’s to come.
A special shout out to Tee for editing up the video and to The Urban Circuit for putting the event together.
P.S. If you're curious to what song is mixed into the video, it's "All Day Ridin'." (below)
Last week araabMUZIK(one of my favs) came through Chicago for his Professional Use Only Tour at The Mid with React Presents. Check out the footage I filmed and edited for a nice recap of the night — he kills it on the MPC!
Our next video production from SXSW has a different feel from the rest. Why? Well, look how up close we were filming Action Bronson, as we captured his lyrical hit "Larry Csonka" at Viceland on the last night of the festival.
Now first off, Rip and I absolutely love it when rappers name a song after a random, now-retired sports athlete. Super Bowl winner, Miami Dolphin Hall-Of-Famer, and American Gladiators co-host Larry Csonka may just take the cake. Action Bronson chose to perform this song to put some more light on his lyrical side and that's driven home with the last quarter of the song going a capella. I especially dig these bars at the end, and really throughout. So whether this is your first time hearing "Larry Csonka" or if you've been rocking with the new XXL Freshman for awhile, press play above and see how these lyrics are passionately delivered and brought to life by Action Bronson.
There were a lot of special shows and experiences at SXSW 2013 — intimate settings, major artists, dynamic venues. One standout performance that had me floored was Wyclef Jean, who brought out the soul, and sprinkled some magic dust to close out his set with "911". As Wyclef ripped the guitar, his vocals also brought chills; he channeled his signature note on this one — classic Wyclef!
The SXSW footage continues! One of the many poppin' venues that attracted some buzz in Austin this year was Vice's Viceland, which featured a 3-day showcase with Kendrick Lamar headlining their final night this past Saturday.
Our team was in attendance, hyped from a potential Jay-Z appearance rumor, and just excited to see K.Dot perform 'Good Kid, M.A.A.D City' was enough. Following Kendrick's career rise, this year's SXSW was just another marker signifying just how much bigger his presence has gotten. You can always tell when someone put in the years to craft their skills through sincere willingness and intention; there is a fearlessness that radiates out from the absolute knowing of what one is capable of. This is why it's exciting to see Kendrick — the decade he spent honing his abilities are now bearing fruit; a master is one who is capable of holding a flowing stability while allowing the magic to shine out!
"If one really wishes to be master of an art, technical knowledge is not enough. One has to transcend technique so that the art becomes an "artless art" growing out of the Unconscious."
— D.T. SUZUKI
“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”
Therefore, before he was going to hit the stage, the crowd already knew the show was gonna be special — so for everyone that missed it, enjoy a taste of what Kendrick delivered that night in Austin with the video performance of "Money Trees" featuring Jay Rock!
