Kendrick Lamar Strives to ‘Survive’ on Heavy New Mistah F.A.B. Track

Kendrick Lamar  delivers a powerful verse about the cycles of violence and desperation that ensnare so many in impoverished areas on “Survive,” a new track from Bay Area stalwart Mistah F.A.B. See Kendrick Lamar Debut ‘Untitled 07’ at March Madness Fest Over a languid but somber mid-tempo beat from Tha Bizness, Lamar lets loose a cascade of characteristically dextrous, clever and thoughtful lines. In one instance, he compares expert fence jumpers to Olympic hurdlers, before spitting this defiant, tongue-twisting rhyme: “Life of a young delinquent/Even stole him a Lincoln, at 15/Middle fingers, walked out the precinct.” The song also boasts an elegiac hook from Chicago singer Kobe Honeycutt, while Mistah F.A.B. turns in a vivid performance (“Section 8 policies/Top Ramen and sunflower seeds/June got killed cause he ain’t wanna lose his Wallabies”) and Slaughterhouse member Crooked I closes with a similarly gruff but poignant verse. “I reached out to Kendrick about a year ago like, ‘Yo Cousin, I need you on this record,'” F.A.B. tells Rolling Stone of how “Survive” came together. “He said it was no problem and got it to me the next day

Hear Alessia Cara, G-Eazy’s Confident ‘Wild Things (Remix)’

Alessia Cara  has released a remix to ” Wild Things ” featuring G-Eazy. The original song hails from her November debut album, Know-it-All .  Watch Alessia Cara’s Celebratory ‘Wild Things’ Vid On the Maurice Sendak-inspired track, the Canadian singer-songwriter confidently sings that she won’t “hang around the in-crowd/The cool kids aren’t cool to me.” On the chorus she declares, “Find me where the wild things are.”  “So don’t get it mixed up / it’s been my story / it’s never switched up / And I never kissed up,” G-Eazy raps on the remix, asserting his equally self-assured wild things ways with the ” Here ” singer. As Rap-Up notes, Cara recently released a “Wild Things (Nukid Remix)” on iTunes. The singer is planning a sequel to Here (The Remixes) , which was released last month and featured collaborations with Logic and Jaden Smith, and these recent remixes will likely be found on the forthcoming Wild Things (The Remixes) EP. The self-described shy kid began to break out of her shell following her signing to Def Jam last year. “I posted something on Instagram to tell everyone why I’d been disappearing from school all that time,” she told Rolling Stone. “I got so many texts like, ‘How come you didn’t tell us?!’ They thought I was just skipping school.” The singer recently made  Rolling Stone ‘s “30 Best Things We Saw at Coachella: 2016” list.

Keith Richards: ‘I’d Work With Bob Dylan in Hell or Heaven’

The Rolling Stones  will soon be gearing up for their Desert Trip  festival, which will find them at Indio, California’s Empire Polo Club for two weekends in October, alongside their music veteran peers Paul McCartney ,  Bob Dylan , the Who, Neil Young and Roger Waters. In an interview with Q104.3, the Stones’ Mick Jagger and Keith Richards talked about the upcoming events. How Six Classic Rock Legends United for One Mega Festival “I thought it was Coachella for old people,” Jagger joked when asked about what he thought of Desert Trip. The singer discussed the logistics of the camping-oriented festival and when asked if he planned to stay for the whole weekend (the Stones play on Friday both weekends), he said, “Maybe I’ll just get my RV and stay there for a bit longer.” Later, Jagger reveals that Dylan also has an RV.  The band is no stranger to huge events like this one and the singer discussed how the band focuses on stage configurations and “what special songs could you possibly think of doing … You gotta worry about yourself, you don’t really worry about anyone else” rather than who else is on the bill.  As for how it will be backstage, Jagger anticipates it will be “absolutely chaotic.” “On the Friday night, it’s going to be us and Bob Dylan, so there will be masses of musicians, actually masses of guests of all the musicians, and it’s a fun time for everyone,” he surmises.  In an interview that followed separately, Richards joked, “How many trips can you take to the desert, man?,” and added, “The lineup is just amazing.”  “I can’t believe we’re all going to be stuck in this little town together,” he said of his fellow lineup members. “I mean, never have we ever all in the same place at the same time.” He refers to the artists on the lineup as his “mates” and when asked about why they appeal to not only their own generation but new ones, he says, “It’s the songs. And I guess a genuineness about the feeling, about how people feel about music.”  As for their Friday night tourmate Bob Dylan, whom Richards often refers to as Bobby during the interview, he’s thrilled about the double billing. “I’d work with Bob any[where]. I’d work with Bob in hell or heaven. I love him.”  The Desert Trip will take place the weekends of October 7th-9th and October 14th-16th.
