The XXL Freshman list is always a huge conversation piece in the rap world, and this year should be no different. While the wait has seemed a little longer than usual, the full list and cover has now been revealed.
After a long wait, SURF is finally here. The debut LP from The Social Experiment (aka SOX) is billed as Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment despite the fact that the band’s biggest star is obviously Chance The Rapper.
Gucci Mane has released nine projects this year. We don't have to check-- that's more than any other rapper. He also happens to be in prison.
In addition to a ridiculous amount of concerts and showcases, MTV's annual Woodie Awards show went down in Austin, Texas this week during SXSW.
The Roots will be putting on their 8th annual Roots Picnic this coming summer in Philadelphia. They've tapped a dope line-up for this year, with a mix of rap and r'n'b, mainstream and indie, albeit, mostly indie.
Another week, another new Gucci Mane project. After the incarcerated 1017 boss dropped both East Atlanta Santa and C-Note Vs. Gucci last week, he's kicking off 2015 by dropping another album, this one entitled 1017 Mafia.
Young Atlanta singer/songwriter Raury is starting 2015 off with a short tour of Alabama and Florida. The "Indigo Child Tour", featuring Tay Jasper and 6lackbear, will be making six stops starting in Alabama, then hitting several locations in Florida.
London DJ SBTRKT has carved out a unique niche for himself in the electronic/R&B world, frequently collaborating with Drake cohort Sampha on his 2011 debut and becoming a festival mainstay thanks to his thrilling live show.
A lot of readers mentioned wanting to hear more from Raury when it was announced that 17-year-old emcee earned himself the Kanye West stamp of approval earlier this week. Fortunately for them, Indigo Child has officially been released to the interwebs.
Back in April, a 17-year-old singer/songwriter from Atlanta named Raury released a video for his track "God's Whisper" that would eventually lead to the biggest break of his young career.
