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.
Surprise, Surprise! New-school King of the South K.R.I.T is back with some new fire called It’s Better This Way. Big K.R.I.T‘s new mixtape has been hosted by none other than Gangsta Grills’ DJ Drama. If you don’t already know, DJ Drama is a permanent figure in Atlanta’s mixtape history. To host a mixtape for K.R.I.T places the Mississippi Rapper along side legends like Ludacris, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy and many more. This new tape is not far from his previous releases, it features dope soulful beats that bang to compliment his smooth southern flow. It’s Better This Way features legends Ludacris and Warren G along with the rising star BJ The Chicago Kid, who is featured on the track “Can’t Be Still.” This is definitely a tape you wanna pick up and you can download it HERE for free.
Don’t forget that K.R.I.T and BJ are touring through Texas for four dates. The dates and links to purchase tickets are below.
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.
Late last night, Chicago’s Mick Jenkins began letting us stream his newest project, Wave[s], via NPR’s First Listen. The H2O-themed project continues with the theme of his previous, critically-acclaimed project, The Water[s]. 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:
Today, Miguel released Wildheart, his third studio album and first full release in almost three years. The album features Miguel crooning over beautiful production, much of which is unorthodox in terms of the typical R&B you hear encapsulating the Top 40 these days. Miguel has a sound of his own and with a full band to accompany him on his Wildheart Tour hitting Texas next month, we know this is going to be an amazing experience for music lovers of all different kinds. Check out his performance on Jimmy Kimmel last night (below) and Good Morning America this morning plus a review of the album by the New York Times. You can also grab tickets below, stream the album here or here and buy the regular album and deluxe album as well on iTunes.
Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, Earl Sweatshirt has postponed his show in Houston this weekend:

We’ve been working with Sir Michael Rocks for awhile now — ever since The Cool Kids days. It’s been amazing to watch him grow as a personal artist and to finally get him down to Texas on some solo shit. He killed all four of his shows in Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio with Dallas selling out well in advance. Check out more photos from the shows below:
