    Chief Keef Previews Kanye West Collaboration 'Nobody'

    As Kanye West finishes his Yeezus follow-up, a handful of unofficial mixes of new tracks have trickled onto the Internet. This weekend another snippet of a distorted Yeezy track has surfaced thanks to Chief Keef. In a short Instagram clip of the song, the two Chicago rappers do their fair share of autotuned crooning, not unlike Keef's turn on Yeezus, "Hold My Liquor." Keef's caption suggests that this new single is titled "Nobody."The last time Kanye jumped on one of Chief Keef's songs, it was pretty beneficial for all involved. "I Don't Like" brought the troubled young rapper to radio stations across the country and scored yet another hit for the GOOD Music madman.It's unclear at this point whether the track will appear on Keef's upcoming LP Bang 3 or Kanye's as-yet-untitled effort, but both are expected to see release later this year.

  • Skrillex EDM Chicago Congress Theater Ban

    The City of Chicago Outlaws EDM at Local Venue

    Following a year spent without a liquor license, Chicago's Congress Theater will finally reopen its doors, but don't count on catching Skrillex there any time soon. In an agreement struck with the city, as Consequence of Sound points out, the theater has agreed to not "allow any EDM shows/events at the premises."Local liquor commissioner Gregory Steadman says the ban follows a "rising level of concern about these events and whether or not they're safe."The venue was initially shut down in May 2013 after a number of drug-related problems.Considering the tragedies that have recently struck Electric Daisy Carnival and Mad Decent Block Party, as well as the general madness that comes along with your everyday Avicii show, it's understandable why the city may want to prohibit such shows from a 5,000 capacity venue.

  • Paul Giamatti NWA Biopic Straight Out of Compton

    Paul Giamatti Joins Cast of N.W.A Biopic

    The forthcoming N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton went to some questionable means to find actors to serve as the film's extras, but they presumably went a more traditional route for the latest addition to the cast. Paul Giamatti will appear in the film as the group's manager and Ruthless Records label head Jerry Heller, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 
Giamatti will star alongside Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E, Marcus Callender as Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson as Ice Cube. The F. Gary Gray-directed film is set to hit theaters on August 15, 2014.

  • Morrissey actually dropped label capitol harvest

    Morrissey Was Really Dropped By His Label, Says Fan Site

    Last week Morrissey's fan site True to You reported that he had been dropped by Harvest Records, but a "source close to the situation" told Billboard yesterday that he was still with the label. Saturday morning True to You fired back, saying that the Billboard report was "incorrect" and that Moz had indeed severed ties with Harvest and Capitol.According to the fan site, Morrissey and his lawyer have emails from label head Steve Barnett and his personal assistant that confirm the separation. The article also states that Morrissey has retained all of the rights to his recent solo album World Peace is None of Your Business because he never signed a recording agreement with the company to begin with.Harvest Records has yet to offer an official statement on the matter.

  • Aphex Twin Blimp London 2014

    Aphex Twin Teases London With a Giant Blimp

    The perennially cryptic Richard D. James appears to be up to something. According to NME reports, a green blimp emblazoned with the year "2014" was spotted flying above London's Oval Space today, but the zero had been replaced with Aphex Twin's iconic logo.Though a long-scrapped album called Caustic Window surfaced earlier this year thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, the legendary experimentalist hasn't issued a proper album since Drukqs in 2001. We've known for a while that he has plenty of music in the can, so the dirigible could signal that he's finally decided to open up the vaults.

    See Foxygen Debut Psychedelic Slow Jams 'Cannibal Holocaust' and 'Hang'

    It seemed for a while that the buzzy psych-rockers in Foxygen might not make it through the long round of touring that followed the release of their debut We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic. Between intra-band strife and erratic live performances that resulted in at least one grievous injury to frontman Sam France, things were looking grim. Nevertheless, earlier this month the band announced their second album ...And Star Power and shared a single that reminded us why we were paying attention in the first place.
