Croatia Countdown: DnB Kingpin Goldie Talks Outlook Festival

VIBE is heading to Outlook Festival 2013 for a large dose of the best bass music, reggae, hip-hop, garage and beyond. "Croatia Countdown" is your go-to resource for insider 411 from this year's elite offering of dance music scions leading up to the storied and vibrant music-a-thon.

Break out the plum rakia cocktails, enjoy a beautiful break, hold your breath for those breakdowns, dance freely to breakbeats...It all goes down August 29th - September 2nd (plus a special amphitheatre kick-off show with The Original Wailers on August 28th), under the Croatian sun with the scenic seascape of Puna serving as the backdrop.

This Week on the Decks: Drum and Bass Kingpin Goldie

VIBE: Describe Outlook Festival in two words:
Goldie: The Bullocks [that's Bristol for "the shit"]!

Who are you excited about seeing on the lineup this year?
Fatima is playing her first live show out there, which is really good she played the other night and she's a really, outrageously fantastic singer. You don't find many here that good.

What are you looking forward to about Croatia as the destination for this festival?
I can't think of a place far enough away to have a festival really, I was quite surprised when Croatia popped up on the map. It's like "let's go to Croatia and have a festival!" Yeah, you said that ten years ago people would have laughed at you. The beaches there are really good. I think Croatia [fuses] a lot of mixed genres, which is healthy for the younger generation coming up.

What about you? What are you doing at the moment, you got any releases coming up?
I just dropped “The Alchemist: The Best of Goldie 1992-2012,” album practically last month. I always do an album in the winter so I can't wait to do that. And then I'll do a proper Goldie Ice album which is going to be with a lot of musicians. I'm gonna really enjoy that because I haven't worked with a good musician for a long time who I really respect and like, so I think it'll be a good opportunity.

Will we be hearing any of that stuff during your performance at Outlook?
Oh yeah definitely.

Cops who stopped to help a New Jersey man after he'd been in a car accident and was airlifted to a nearby hospital, was later arrested him after finding an arsenal of weapons and racist materials inside his vehicle and home.

According to reports, police located guns in Joseph Rubino's car after the cops stopped to offer assistance. Law enforcement then received a search warrant and found a grenade launcher, rifles with scopes, shotguns, and silencers, brass knuckles and a ballistic vest inside the 57-year-old's home.

Lizzo Reacts To Hillary Clinton's "Truth Hurts" Tweet

Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” may be over two years old, but it’s proven to be her most impactful hit yet. The track gained steam after being featured in Netflix’s Someone Great, and currently sits at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also garnered the attention of one of the biggest names in politics.

A video Lizzo posted on Twitter features Hillary Clinton and other former Presidential hopefuls standing and saluting the flag. While we may expect the National Anthem to play, “Truth Hurts” blares over the speaker instead.

Shortly after the video was posted, Hillary Clinton (or at least a very in-touch intern of hers) replied, tweeting out the song’s popular lyrics “I just took a DNA test, turns out…”

“@hillaryclinton just confirmed Truth Hurts is 100% the new national anthem... have a great day,” Lizzo wrote on Instagram.

The musician opened up about practically quitting music after “Truth Hurts” failed to take off initially.

“I remember thinking, ‘If I quit music now, nobody would notice. This is my best song ever, and nobody cares,’” she told PEOPLE. “I was like, ‘F**k it, I’m done.’ And a lot of people rallied; my producer, my publicist and my family, they were like, ‘Just keep going because this is the darkest before the dawn.'”

She also recently teased a remix to the song with DaBaby.

"I just took a DNA test, turns out..."

Drake Faces Lawsuits Over 'Nice For What' And 'In My Feelings'

A rapper by the name of Sam Skully is suing both Drake and Big Freedia for alleged use of his beat for the songs “In My Feelings” and “Nice For What.”

Per TMZ, Skully (real name Samuel Nicholas III) claims that a portion of his 2000’s song “Roll Call” was used in the popular song “In My Feelings.” He also alleges that “Nice For What,” which features Big Freedia, uses another one of his stolen beats.

“In the docs, Sam Skully claims he published the beat on a CD he released in New Orleans way back in 2000, but says he didn't know his work had been stolen until years later ... when Drake and Big Freedia released songs that started climbing the charts,” reports the site.

“Nice For What” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2018, as did “In My Feelings.” The latter track remained there for 10 weeks and was associated with the highly-popular “In My Feelings” challenge.

Skully is also reportedly suing Asylum Records, Cash Money Records and Republic Records for damages.
