We’ve teamed up with VFILES and MTV for VFILES LOUD!, a new program to discover the best up and coming musicians around the globe. Unsigned artists can submit tracks in a variety of genres (pop, electronic, R&B, rock, and hip-hop) through the VFILES LOUD! website and have them judged by a board of mentors (including MTV programmers, stylists, and a lil guy named A-Trak). The best submission wins an official release on Fool’s Gold, a VFILES-directed music video, a worldwide TV premier on MTV, and a party with all of us to celebrate. Hit vfiles.com/LOUD and get cracking! Read More

Danny Brown kicked off his Old Danny Brown Tour this past week with a string of sold out shows, so it’s only right that MTV gets in on the action by kicking their Artist To Watch campaign into high gear for the Bruiser! Watch this interview vid and live performance from Austin, and stay tuned for MTV’s world premier of the “25 Bucks” video featuring Purity Ring later this week. (And for even more DB, grab Old on vinyl now in 2xLP and deluxe 4xLP box set versions!)

Normally, we’d take this opportunity to Photoshop some smartassy faux headlines (“JAY Z TRIES NOT TO SPILL HIS MERLOT”) but instead we’re just gonna screenshot the MTV News homepage as-is cause we’re happy the folks over there feel that our girl Kid Sis’s smiling mug is worthy of sharing the same prime internet real estate as Jiggaman, Jayceon, and some random longhair. You can check her interview (done post-TRL taping alongside new Star Trak-er Teyana Taylor) right here.

Tune in to MTV today (2/28) at 3:30 EST to check our girl Kid Sister doing it extra big as part of TRL’s “Spankin New Ladies Week.” We went down to Times Square to film it yesterday (Side note – what the heck is Toby up to these days?) as part of a whirlwind promo run that also included stops to see early supporters DJ Enuff at Hot 97 and Cipha Sounds at Sirius/Shade 45. In the Sirius offices they have this wall everyone signs with a marker. After the jump, our two favorites. Read More
