Travis Scott's new mixtape Owl Pharaoh has been on repeat… If you don't know Travis, he's part of the G.O.O.D. Music crew and has produced a bunch of tracks for Kanye. Funny story about the album cover. Travis and Nigel Sylvester are friends and Travis was super stoked on the photo of Nigel jumping the subway tracks, that was shot by 13th Witness… So Travis reached out to 13th Witness and he ended up shooting the cover… all because of BMX!
If you're in need of a good after work/after school/end of the day jam to zone out to and relax, press play on this Funkadelic jam above…too smooth.
It’s been interesting following EL-P’s career all these years. I’ve always been a fan of his music/production and it’s good to see him reaching new audiences.
El-P and Killer Mike (who I only really checked for due to EL-P) make up “Run The Jewels” and will be dropping a free album sometime this month. Listen to 36″ Chain below. If you search the internets you can find more stuff.
I love Vampire Weekend. The new album is SO good. That is all.
A new piece I did on French Montana for Dazed and Confused just dropped today. It was rad to get to chill with French and I had a great time putting this piece together. I shot with him for a few days in New York, in the studio, at a photo shoot, at Hot 97, and rolled around in his Ghost… Check it out above and keep reading for a few photos from the shoot.
Action Bronson takes on a rap cliche or 2. Classic visuals right here.
Don’t let the thumbnail deter you, Riff Raff does NOT rap in this.
With the recent passing of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman, I’m sure most fans went through and listened to a little more Slayer than usual. Same here.
While doing so, I kept being drawn to the amazing covers on some of these albums (specifically the ones above) and started wondering who made them after all these years. My research led me to Larry Carrol. Apparently dude keeps a low profile, which I kind of like. I did come across THIS rad interview which was a good read and had some great nuggets of info. I recommend.
