Rapper Anderson .Paak is hitting the road with The Free Nationals for his solo tour dubbed, Andy’s Beach Club. The announcement for the 26-city trek, including Atlanta, comes after the release of his latest album, Oxnard.

The soulful rapper dropped his third body of work in November 2018 with heavy production guidance by hip-hop veteran Dr. Dre.

Oxnard is loaded with fiery tracks from “Who R U?” to “Trippy,” both of which showcase his musical range. The album oozes with California vibes, explaining the major influence .Paak’s new surroundings have had on him since relocating to Los Angeles a few years ago.

The West Coast-inspired project is also composed of timeless collaborations with heavyweights like J.Cole, Q-Tip, Snoop Dogg, and Compton native Kendrick Lamar, who is featured on the single “Tints.,” The standout record on the project that still has fans buzzing is “Mansa Musa,” a feature from Dr. Dre himself –– pairing a vibrant tempo and gritty base. Critics have called Oxnard .Paaks best work to date and you can bet he has more coming in 2019.

Brightness’ New Music Video ‘Dallas’ will make your Soul Cry



Credit: Josh Goleman

Alex Knight who launched his career under the moniker Brightness dropped a new tracked, dubbed “Dallas” via I OH U. The mellow song was recorded in upstate New York with producer Sam Griffin Owens (Cass McCombs, Chris Cohen, Sam Evian), the song is – per Knight’s description – “about being spiritually hungry…the volatility and fragility of being in that state.” A heady offering equipped with slanting melody, baritone guitars, and erratic squalls that dunk you in cloudy space for the bulk of its duration, then slowly lifts you out in its final phrases to the sound of rapturous falsetto and luminous French horn.

“I wrote ‘Dallas’ when I was living alone in my brother’s garage. It’s probably hard to tell, but I was listening to a lot of Springsteen at the time, he said. I was inspired especially by his ‘Darkness On The Edge Of Town’ record…the themes etc. I’d pretty much razed my life to the ground, and was intent on looking upwards…looking outwards.”

Knight affirms “the location and pairing (with Owens) couldn’t have been more fitting.” The song was recorded in Spillway Sound, a freshly opened studio nestled in the Catskills, a spread of nature known to stir wonder in those who’ve beheld it, from the addled attendees of Woodstock Festival to 19th-century transcendentalist, Ralph Waldo Emerson.

The accompanying visual for “Dallas” is similarly gripping. Directed by Charlotte Evans, the video finds Knight in a state of insomnia-induced disarray, the singer slowly spiraling out in his unkempt bedroom as he becomes increasingly mesmerized by a preacher on TV. The song is the first taste of new music from a forthcoming album following his critically-acclaimed 2017 debut, Teething, and marks a darker shift in sound characterized by deeper contour, contrast, and confidence.

Report: DaBaby to serve 1 Year Probation following Gun Case

Buzzing, new rapper DaBaby has had a successful career run, thus far, with consecutive hits topping the Billboard charts over the past few months, but unfortunately, the 27-year-old’s success may slow down a notch with the bad news he just received.

According to TMZ, the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office convicted the hip-hop star Thursday for carrying a concealed gun in a North Carolina case ––a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation and 30 days in jail — the jail sentence was later suspended.

The incident reportedly dates back to November of last year where the rapper was involved in a heated altercation with a man inside a local Walmart, leaving one fatality from a bullet wound. The rapper says his actions were an act of self-defense for himself and his kids.

He was arrested in connection but it’s still unclear as to who shot the suspect, the DA’s office mention to the outlet.

While it appears DaBabay got off easy with this case, he is currently battling a lawsuit over an alleged attack by him and his entourage.
