The North American part of RIhanna‘s ANTI World Tour kicked off earlier this month with Travi$ Scott as the opener. This weekend at her show in Cincinnati she handed the mic over to a fan to help her out with the hook of “FourFiveSeconds” and was blown away by what she heard.
Back in 2014 The Chainsmokers became a viral hit with their single “SELFIE,” which was definitely a super relatable song, but also very annoying (Alex’s words not mine). Well at the end of 2015 they were able to show the world the type of music they really want to do when “Roses” became a smash single! I got the chance to talk to him, while he was in London of all places a few weeks back!
We’ll file this one in the always check your surroundings category, a man in Pennsylvania probably should’ve taken a look in the rear-view mirror before he tried to rob a taxi, since there was a police officer right behind them.
After months of delays, Rihanna just dropped her long-awaited new single this morning! The surprise release of “Work” (featuring Drake) comes just two days after Rihanna posted a tweet saying, “Listening to ANTI.”

Fans of Kanye West are getting excited as “Yeezy season is approaching” and we’re about two and a half weeks away from the release of his long-awaited follow up to his polarizing 2013 Yeezus album, and Kanye has taken to Twitter to give some insight on SWISH. An album that he says will be the best of all time, hopefully he delivers unlike Kid Cudi did when he said Indicud would be the greatest album of all time.
Swish February 11 16

G-Eazy is killing the game right now, a sold out world tour, his first hit single and his album When It’s Dark Out debuted #1 the rap albums chart! I got a few minutes to chop it up with him tonight, and we talked about everything from his favorite basketball team, The Golden State Warriors killing the game in the NBA right now to his tour.
G-Eazy interview with Mean Jean radio (shorter) version:
I know some fans said I’d never rap like this again / But the writer’s block is over / MCs cancel your plans / A 38-year-old ate your role,” West raps on the track.
The wait is over! The full version of the long awaited collaboration from two of the biggest names in Hip Hop, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar, FINALLY hit the internet today. The track, uploaded to Kanye’s Soundcloud page, it definitely lived up to it’s hype, all six minutes of 15 seconds “No More Parties in L.A.” is definitely a throwback to the “old Kanye” that some ‘Ye fans have been clamoring for since the release of 808s and Heartbreak back in 2008.
The first time I heard Lil Dicky‘s music I honestly thought he was trying to be a parody rapper. It wasn’t until his freestyle on Sway in the Morning (posted below) that I figured out that Lil Dicky was the real deal. After talking to him last week, I learned that he was not only a dope rapper, but he’s also very funny and extremely smart as well.
Adele is by far the BIGGEST music star on the planet right now, her album 25 was released in late November, but was still the highest selling album of 2015. Tonight she joined fellow Brit James Corden on the Late Late Show for a little Carpool Karaoke, and along the way she dropped some nuggets of info along the ride!
Well that didn’t take long at all, on Sunday we introduced you to the newest internet sensation Michelle Dobyne, who’s building in Tulsa, OK caught fire and naturally she became an internet sensation after she was interviewed by the local news station. Well, the Gregory Brothers, who first got notice when they remixed Antoine Dodson’s “he’s climbing in your window, he’s snatchin’ yo people up trying rape ’em” news report and turned it into the “Bed Intruder Song” are back with “Not Today” featuring you guessed it, MIchelle Dobyne.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the past few weeks, you’ve at least heard about the Netflix show Making a Murderer which follows Steven Avery who spent 18 years in jail for a rape that he didn’t commit. Two years later he gets arrested for the murder of Teresa Halbach, with his nephew, Brendan Dassey, being involved as well. Well, Brendan’s half brother Brad Dassey has dropped a new track, “They Didn’t Do It” to make the case for his family members innocence.
my new tune, They Didn't Do it is taking the internet by storm! Time, E!, TMZ, all over!!!

If you don’t know who Tori Kelly is, you better get familiar because she is the truth! She’s nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s GRAMMY Awards, and if that didn’t already say it, the girl can flat out sing. Tonight I had the chance to interview Ms. Tori Kelly, and I think I’m in love.
It’s been three years since we met, and fell in love, with Sweet Brown who became an internet sensation after her Oklahoma City apartment building caught fire and she told us “ain’t nobody got time for dat.” She’s been often imitated, but surely never duplicated. We might have met the next internet sensation, Michelle Dobyne.
