Chance The Rapper Premieres Promotional Video For “Very, Very Lonely”

Chance The Rapper gives us just a little more insight on his lovesick dilemma with the promotional visual for the single, “Very, Very Lonely,” released back in May. The video, which shows a silhouette of a man and woman grinding against each other, celebrates the one year anniversary of Chance's Acid Rap mixed taped, released on April 30th, 2013 with a backdrop that resembles the same backdrop on the mixed tape. The visual closes with the message “I’m coming over, August 3,” which may be a reference to the Chicago rapper’s upcoming set at the Lalapalooza Fest along with leading acts including, Eminem, Outkast and, Calvin Harris. However, we’re all ears if the message happens to be a heads up for his next mixed taped as well.

Revisiting Eminem's Freestyle Show Mixtape


Joonbug.com celebrates Detroit’s 313th birthday on this throwback Thursday by revisiting Eminem’s rare Freestyle Show mixtape. The 43-minute compilation of classic Slim Shady flows recorded around the time between the release of his sophomore album, The Slim Shady LP album, his first major release and, The Marshall Mathers LP (2000), is an impressive nostalgic trip on a formal introduction to one of the most lyrically gifted emcees to emerge from the Motown city. The mixtape is also followed the release of his debut album, Infinite (1996) which met generally negative reviews as well as criticism surrounding accusations of Eminem emulating the sound of Brooklyn rapper, AZ. The creation of Eminem’s alter ego, Slim Shady, a complex character, who is driven by violence and drug use, acted as a catalyst that catapulted the Detroit’s rapper’s career into superstardom. Although, public opinion has confirmed that Shady’s explicit lyrics, riddled with profanities, is quite disturbing, one can also debate that Eminem’s imaginative capability along with intricate metaphors and similes deemed the Slim Shady series to be a genius effort.

The Chainsmokers Present: 'Kanye'

After the overwhelming amount of success The Chainsmokers received from '#Selfie' almost everybody has been wondering the same exact thing; what's next?

In what will be their first single release since '#Selfie,' Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, aka The Chainsmokers, are getting ready to have a little fun with the notorious Kanye West. Recently posting a preview to their Instagram, the NYC duo have still left listeners everywhere confused and guessing on what exactly to expect with 'Kanye.' All we really know right now is that the track features some initially dreamy vocals from Siren, who sings, "One day I'll stand with a crown on my head like a god. Yeah, like a god." With only a very small fifteen second glimpse that cuts off before we get any real sense of the track, 'Kanye' could very easily go in any direction possible.

Anticipating
Wiz Khalifa fans are in for another musical treat, as the leak of his latest track "Out All Night" has been released just hours after the Khalifa released charismatic club single, "You and Your Friends," featuring Ty Dolla$ and mentor, Snoop Dogg. The track, which is number eight on Pittburgh native's upcoming fifth studio album, Blacc Hollywood, was released last night, July 22nd. The slow tempo laid back record finds Khalifa in a club completely buzzed and looking for someone to take him home. The “We Dem Boyz” emcee also boasts about his wealth, including his KK dollars. The emcee credits KK ( also name of a single), an acronym for Khalifa Kush dollars as a compliment to his hard work. Blacc Hollywood, which Khalifa has explained is misspelled to disassociate with color and blaxploitation, is slated to be released on August 19th.
