What an awesome weekend Lollapalooza was this year. Chicago was filled with entertainment from morning to night. This year, Govia and I got to cover the festival and the after parties. Not only did we listen to your favorite songs from your favorite artists, but we got to talk to a few of them. Check out this Lollapalooza recap that was put together for all of you who couldn't attend or just want to relive the experience. The interviews include artists who took over the Perry Stage such as Bassnectar, Paper Diamond, Zedd, DJ Zebo, and Zeds Dead who talk about what it takes to become an artist and the use of all the production these days. Also, Black Sabbath's keyboardist Adam Wakeman talks to us about the few shows this year with Ozzy Osbourne. This recap also includes many more performances at Lollapalooza such as The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, Childish Gambino, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more from after parties at the Hard Rock Hotel. Enjoy!
What a great way to launch Lollapalooza weekend by interviewing Miguel. I was so excited watching him perform at the Hard Rock Hotelfor the Soul Sounds Pre-Lolla Kickoff Party. Not only did we get to watch him perform live ("All I Want Is You" & "Quickie" seen above), we got to talk to him on the red carpet. Watch and get the inside scoop on his new album and why he is releasing two EPs of songs from the album before releasing Kaleidoscope Dream in full on October 2. You’d be surprised by his answer. He also tells us what is the one food he can't live without. Enjoy!
There may be no place like home. But what's home to those of us living on the south side of Chicago? An area where crime is life and the sights are nothing more than a mere trip to the corner store. For Chicago rapper, G.o.D. Jewels, toughin out life in the south is simply a means to an end. A possible hope that his grind and musical abilities can get him to the place he envisions as the pinnacle of human civilization.
Watch as the self proclaimed king of Chicago talks with Gowhere Hip Hop's very own Samantha Lebbos about his upcoming project, The Glimpse of Destiny, his 'Looking Glass' video series (the final part, part 4 below), the R.N.V. slogan, and more. Look for G.o.D.'s "New God Flow" freestyle to drop soon. #ChiCity
