Tyler the Creator Shares New Song/Video “Who Dat Boy,” feat. A$AP Rocky

posted by Oscar June 29, 2017

Tyler’s back! Tyler, the Creator has finally released some new material, ending our collective streak without new music from him by delivering “Who Dat Boy.” The track features his partner A$AP Rocky, and it is available to check out along with its music video that was directed by Tyler himself, credited under his directing pseudonym, Wolf Haley.

The music video is incredibly intense, depicting Tyler roaming suburbia after an explosion opened up his face, which leads us to Rocky hooking his bro up with some necessary face transplant surgery. After Tyler escapes the police, the video cuts to him dancing along to his new song with Frank Ocean, “911.”

See all that unfold in the clip above.

Frank Ocean Shares New Track feat. Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator: “Biking”

posted by Oscar April 8, 2017

Frank Ocean has graced the weekend with another new song, making use of the broadcast of the third episode of Beats 1 show blonded Radio.

The track is called “Biking” and it features Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator. The production starts off a little more organic thanks to the piano taking the lead before making way for an acoustic guitar, then taking a turn for the hazy when the verses start to pop off. HOVA provided a decent intro, but it’s Ocean’s rapping that is the true highlight throughout, but Tyler’s raspy verse isn’t too far behind either.

Peep the latest Frank Ocean offering below. Continue Reading

Last week, I put out a list for my favorite hip-hop samples of the year. This week, I wanted to give R&B its shine, as this genre has had a solid 2016 overall. The best part of the genre now is that a lot of R&B songs are now incorporating old hits into current songs to rejuvenate the genre even further. Here are my top samples of R&B in 2016:

Franc Ocean - Endless

Frank Ocean has released a new album, ending the wait for new material with a visual album titled Endless.

An Apple Music rep told Pitchfork to “keep an eye out this weekend for more from Frank.” So maybe this FO drought for all this time is going to be more than worth the wait! We’ll keep y’all posted on that.
