Cubic Zirconia went to Los Angeles and made an album. Check out Tiombe, Nick, Daud, and friends as they put together what would become their debut LP, Follow Your Heart, out now on Fool’s Gold (with physical copies in stores around the world starting today! If your local shop doesn’t have it, tell em to quit playin and hit us up).
Check out Detroit tiger Danny Brown doing what he does best (rapping, smoking, being awesome) in this clip for XXX fan favorite “Blunt After Blunt,” directed by A$AP Rocky & The ICU. Pretty sure the Rap City Basement was never this weeded…
Danny Brown takes Focus Creeps on a tour of Detroit for Vitamin Water & Fader’s Uncapped series, dropping knowledge on high school, haircuts, and more. (Plus, he shows off some excellent taste in tees…)
Jubilation is the name of a long gone nightclub in the south suburbs outside Chicago that gave teenage partygoers their first taste of the ’90s ghetto house tracks that would soon morph into juke and footwork. So its more than appropriate that Flosstradamus take that title for their brand new EP, where the DJ duo of J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci) use the hyperactive drums and booming sub bass sonics of juke as a jumping off point for new school dancefloor sounds of their very own.
Led by the Kid Sister collab “Luuk Out Gurl” (which Chicago Reader praises for “somehow bending footwork’s freakier elements to the rules of a radio-friendly pop song”) and the XXX-rated Danny Brown collab “From The Back,” Jubilation is a true showcase for Flosstradamus’ club-honed studio skills and willingness to experiment.

Peep the sweaty madness in the recap vid – including Just Blaze on cameraman duties! – and check photos after the jump. Read More
Who doesn’t love Sammy Bananas? Assholes, thats who. Not that we’ve actually met any. (Non Sammy Bananas lovers, that is. We’ve met plenty of assholes. This is the music business!)
Check out a bunch of recent goodies from Mr B: a “auto interview” for the groovy folks at Konbini up top, a punk funk-y remix for NYC’s Psychobulidings below, and a bunch of upcoming Cali tour dates this week after the jump.
