Richie Hawtin and Loco Dice Announce College Tour

Kingpins of electronic dance music's underground Richie Hawtin and Loco Dice have announced a nationwide tour. Although the American dance population has clearly shown their devout interest in this new dominant music trend, the awareness of those who truly helped shape and build what they enjoy today is lacking. In an effort to help educate those who yearn to learn more about dance music, in specific techno and contemporary DJ technology, the producers are hitting up North America to play professors in the hottests course known to college, EDM 101.

Dubbed 'Control: Beyond EDM', this multi-city tour is not the usual mega show escapade. Stopping in cities such as NYC, Boston, Philadelphia and Montreal, each installment will feature a daytime event consisting of lectures from an array of industry leaders, followed by a nighttime party headlined by Hawtin, Dice and myriad special guests. With the target goal being to offer insight into parts of EDM that normally wouldn't be given the spotlight, both Richie and Dice have big plans for their diehard fans and their musical awareness.

Future, Chief Keef, And More Friday Releases You Need To Hear

As the first month of 2019 winds down, a handful of hip-hop artists dropped new projects and singles. From Future to Chief Keef and Logic, we've compiled a list of Friday music releases you should be listening to.

Check out the full list below.

Future – The WZRD

Future's latest project The WZRD is finally here. The 20-track album features guest appearances from Young Thug, Travis Scott, and Gunna. It also serves as his seventh studio album.

Ahead of the album's release, Future dropped a documentary, entitled Future Hndrxx Presents: The Wizrd, which previewed the LP and discussed his views and artistry. It also included commentary from Andre 3000, DJ Khaled, Rico Wade, Metro Boomin, Southside and others.

Chief Keef – The Leek 7

Chief Keef has delivered the seventh installment of The Leek series with  The Leek, Vol. 7. The 12-song project features only one feature from Gucci Mane on the single "Jet Li."

Listen to The Leek 7 below.

Logic – "Keanu Reeves"

Logic is paying his respects to actor Keanu Reeves in his latest single. The Maryland artist dropped the track nearly nine months after he debuted it during the Movin' On Festival at Penn State University.

"Did you know I'm mixed like Obama?/It ain't a project if Logic ain't talkin' 'bout being biracial," he brags  on the track. "When them soccer moms pull up in they van while I rid/Like, ‘Oh my God, children, it's the 1-800 guy!"

Listen to the new song below.

Meek Mill Once Used Soulja Boy's "Kiss Me Thru The Phone" Lyrics In Love Letters From Jail

Who knew Soulja Boy’s ubiquitous 2008 hit “Kiss Me Thru The Phone” once served as a romantic catalyst for Meek Mill? The Philadelphia rapper recently admitted on Twitter that while he was incarcerated in his youth, he used the lyrics to Soulja Boy’s schmaltzy love note within letters and phone calls to girls.

This was my favorite song when I was in jail back in the day calling girls collect.... and I used to his bars in the letters I wrote them no cap lol 😂😂😂 #bigdraco pic.twitter.com/qFqgkylQtm

— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) January 16, 2019

Amid Meek’s cheeky co-sign, Soulja Boy has been one of the Internet’s favorite topics of discussion since his latest interview on The Breakfast Club. The 28-year-old rapper spoke about his legacy in hip-hop and why he deserves more credit than he’s been given for his influence. He also had some choice words for Kanye West when he said the latter is old and "lame."

"I'm younger than you," he began. "I'm flyer than you, ni**a. Whatever. You crying on Twitter every week about Drake? You gotta stop that sh*t, bro. You look lame, bro. You look cap, bro...You up here supporting Trump and sh*t, bro. You supporting Trump? What the f**k wrong with you, bro? That sh*t's not right."

Other artists in the industry also chimed in on the situation:

I’m Not Going To Lie Soulja Boy Been Funny As Fuck

Vic Mensa Covers' 'Zombie' In Honor Of The Cranberries' Dolores O'Riordan

Vic Mensa and his group 93PUNX covered "Zombie" by Irish rock group The Cranberries, in honor of the one-year anniversary of the passing of the group’s lead singer, Dolores O’Riordan.

93PUNX serves as an opportunity for Mensa to perform music outside of his typical hip-hop lane and explore genres more freely. He posted snippets of the track on his Instagram page with the caption, “RIP DOLORES.” Mensa also revealed in a statement the reason why he covered the hit.

“We connected to ‘Zombie’ because we were born from violence,” he said. Dolores O’Riordan died on Jan. 15, 2018. Toxicology reports state that the 46-year-old died from accidental drowning due to alcohol intoxication.

The artwork for the “Zombie” cover features a woman with dripping, bloody fangs, and was created by artist Lucas David. The cover version itself is slowed down, which provides a more mysterious take on the 1994 protest classic.

Mensa released his recent project HOOLIGANS in December 2018, which traverses various thematic landscapes, from mental health awareness to love lost. The EP features Ty Dolla $ign, G-Herbo, G-Eazy, Charlie Wilson and more.

What do you think about the cover? Listen below and let us know in the comments.
