Jet-Lifer Le$ has dropped some fire in the tradition of Trill. This Houston-native is the continuing the style with his new mixtape Free Game. This new mixtape is a mixture of previously released songs and lots of new hot ones. Entirely produced by Chase N. Cashe and Happy Perez, this tape has all the necessary samples, soulful cuts, and that one-of-a-kind energy that can only be found in Texas. This is definitely some dope cruising music from a local-born artist, and we are all about supporting our own. The only features are from Curren$y, Corner Boy P, and Young Roddy on the track “Round Table”. You can download the mixtape here and listen to Free Game below.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Dom Kennedy’s two Texas dates next week will be moving from October 20 in Houston and October 21 in Dallas to December 11 in Dallas and December 12 in Houston.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but ultimately it is the best decision for the artist and everyone involved. We appreciate everyone that has already bought tickets and look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled date. Dom and ScoreMore would like to thank you for your understanding. See you in December!
The Internet’s Ego Death has created some great sensation. They’ve now debuted a video for “Get Away” off of their third album in perfect timing with their tour swinging through the South. In her usual calm and collected fashion, Syd sings her smooth lines and lets the rest of the crowd go wild.

In December of 2011, The Internet blessed R&B with other-worldly music in their debut album Purple Naked Ladies. Since then, Odd Future alumni Syd the Kyd and Matt Martians have been giving us soulful sounds with members Patrick Paige, Christopher Smith and Jameel Bruner. The Internet’s headlining tour follows the release of their third studio album Ego Death. Leading up to the album release, The Internet teased fans by releasing the singles “Girl” and “Special Affair,” both featuring the mesmerizing vocals of Syd to accompany beautifully orchestrated instrumentals. Their four Texas stops will include opening performances from Moonchild, St. Beauty and other artists that compliment the celestial sounds of The Internet — like Milky Wayv featuring Bobby Earth from Houston.
Grab your tickets for one of the upcoming shows below, and stream The Internet if your ears have yet to be blessed by their etherial sounds. You can purchase Ego Death on iTunes.
One of the main differences between Mick Jenkins’ latest project Wave[s] and his previous mixtape The Water[s] is more upbeat tempos. “Get Up Get Down” is Exhibit A. Instead of Mick placing himself in the video, he places three kids in Adidas tracksuits freestyle dancing (impressively) throughout the city. You’ve got shots of the Willis Tower (aka the Sears Tower) and the “L” train in the background, showing off Mick Jenkins’ powerful hometown, but the focus is on the kids and their carefree fun. Move your body.
Mick Jenkins will be moving through Texas next month with STWO. You can get tickets to his shows at the links below.

Stream the new project before it drops August 21 and get tickets to see Mick next month when he hits Texas with STWO.
This past weekend, Miguel kicked off his Wildheart Tour in Texas, supporting his wildly anticipated third release of the same name. Wildheart is a fresh take on R&B, blending elements of psychedelia and the inexplicable new sound that many are dubbing “future-soul” to create a unique project that can be jammed during more activities than just the horizontal tango. Miguel kicked the tour off in Austin on Friday, July 24 at Emo’s before moving onto Dallas at South Side Ball Room and Houston at Warehouse Live, all the while performing with his incredible live band. Also, female blues-rocker/singer Dorothy opened for each date. Check out the photos from the Miguel Texas shows, including a sold out Houston show, below:
