When the time comes to declare National Rap Day, the date of September 25th will surely be in contention. Today is, after…
Last week, Passion Pit's "Swimming in the Flood" bested the competition with more than 60% of the total vote. However, today, we're mourning the loss of Heavy D who died at the young age of 44. While we don't feature any of his music in this edition of Songs of the Week, we do shine the spotlight on tracks from REM, Red Gold & Green, Childish Gambino, The Black Keys, and Florence + the Machin. Take a listen then vote for your favorite after the jump.
This past Friday I got the chance to trek down to Atlantic City for the Childish Gambino concert. First of all, if you haven't listened to Gambino yet you have been missing out. He hasn't put out any physical releases yet, but his online mixtapes have been nothing short of awesome. His 2010 release Culdesac put him on the map and he hasn't slowed down since. 2011 saw him release E.P. and on November 15th his first full length album, Camp, will drop in stores and online. Needless to say I was real pumped to check out his show last weekend, and he did not disappoint. Check out pics and videos from the show after the jump.
In today's edition of Wrap It Up, Eli says he's just as terrific as Tom Brady, Coco Chanel might've been a nazi spy, Abercrombie & Fitch wants to pay the Jersey Shore cast to NOT wear their clothes, Playboy released their first ever braille edition, Hulk Hogan might be gay, Kate Upton looks good in denim, Miranda Kerr looks good in lingerie, Anne Hathaway tries to do Lil Wayne, The Game might go to jail for a tweet, Ndamukong Suh got fined again, Gerard Depardieu pissed on an airplane floor, and much more. Check out the sh*t we should've published after the jump.
