Today, we've seen two festivals interrupted by weather issues, so by comparison, The Roots Picnic in Philly which took place on Saturday was a great success, even though Future's set ended up being a bit rough. According to fans at the show, Future Hendrix only performed for about 20 minutes, exiting after he had serious issues with his microphone. Though the crowd was hoping for the Atlanta rapper to come back for more material, he did not reappear, causing fans ti throw bottles and other objects at the stage.

Beast Mode: 6 Crazy Mixtape & Album Runs May 24, 2016 at 03:10pm
These days, the line between mixtape and album is thinner than ever, and fans are fairly entitled when it comes to new music. As a result, we're seeing more and more projects being released in a shorter time frame, but there are only a select few who can impress both in terms of quantity and quality. The "run" is something a few artists have been praised for. It's generally a series of projects that mark an important creative spurt for an artist, and one that often creates something of a spectacle. With that being said, some "runs" get a lot of publicity, while some fly under the radar.

Top Tracks: May 16 - May 22 May 23, 2016 at 02:18pm
This past week, we were finally able to take a deep breath and reflect on all of the major projects we've heard in the past month -- A$AP Ferg, Bankroll Mafia, Beyoncé, Drake, Skepta, Rittz, Chance The Rapper, and Post Malone have all dropped full-lengths in that relatively brief timespan. It would appear that the summer's first burst of high-profile albums has subsided, but as we await projects from Travi$ Scott, YG, ScHoolboy Q, and others, at least guys like The Underachievers and Casey Veggies have given us something new to chew on.

In contrast with the first few months of 2015, when it seemed like our Top Tracks lists were just the same Kanye and Drake tracks rising and falling with each ensuing week, the past few editions have been utter chaos, with the #1 spot changing every week. Staying power is proving difficult to achieve in an increasingly crowded summer playing field-- Beyoncé and Birdman's chart-toppers from two and one week ago, respectively, are nowhere to be found this week, although a few of the lower-ranking tracks stuck it out.
