Brooklyn-based trio, Lolawolf, is back with a fiesty follow up to the their debut album, Calm Down.

Today (June 23), Lolawolf debuts their newest mixtape, everyf-ckinday with VIBE.com. With lyrics that speak to today's rebellious youth, the five-track project is an unapologetic riot of kick ass trap beats paired with electro-pop synths and off-kilter yet infectious hooks.

VIBE also caught up with the band in the midst of their hectic schedule to talk about their recording process, the space they occupy in music today, and the trio's musical future. Press play below and vibe out to this first listen of Lolawolf's everyf-ckinday EP.

VIBE: You all love to experiment with different sounds. What was the inspiration behind everyf-ckinday?

Lolawolf: We just had fun with it and kept it pretty basic. It's more for us. We hope people can dig that.

Tell me about the title. Is there a deeper meaning behind it?  

Honestly, it's about routine, love and stuff.

It seems like you all take a f-ck it approach to your music – as in you all aren't looking to cater to anyone in general and just doing what makes you happy. Any truth to that? 

Yeah, we're just doing what makes us happy, honestly. We can mess with so many different styles cause everyone in the group is into all sorts of s--t. We kinda do whatever we are feeling at the moment. That doesn't mean we are just doing what's cool "right now," ya know? S--t mixes up, day after day and builds then you write some stuff, then songs and vibes start happening.

So what was the writing/recording process for the mixtape?

Beats, instruments, fly to the Bahamas, chill, vocals, mix.

Sounds like a lengthy process. Do you all go in with a plan of what you want to create?

The plan was what you hear. For this one, our minimal approach and the brattiness punch was translated appropriately.

There aren't any features on the mixtape. Are there any collaborations you all have in the works? 

We have done some and doing more, they are just chilling on the tape for now. We'll start dropping some soon, really excited for that.

You all are big on visuals, too. Can we expect killer videos for any on the songs on the mixtape? 

Definitely.

Many have categorized Lolawolf under many different genres and even deemed your sound "unpredictable." What space do you guys feel like you occupy in music today? 

Not really sure where we fit in. Not a lot of people know who we are [I don't think], so it's hard to really tell about that. Our fans are really dope and a lot of really great new artists all over the Internet right now that we are diggin’. One of our favorites is Trouble Andrew who does our videos.

With Zoë's father being who he is, is there any pressure to make great music and continue his legacy? 

Not according to us.

Being a trio is undoubtedly a group effort. From the Lolawolf EP to now, what growth have you all seen in each other as a band that has gotten you all this far? 

We all got a little taller (laughs).

Where do you all see Lolawolf in five years? 

At a big ass pool party.

Premiere: Gerald Walker Releases 'Can't Drive A Parked Car'

Rappers have shown entrepreneurial spirit for as long as many of us can remember, starting or buying into clothing lines, alcohol companies, and more. But Chicago rapper Gerald Walker is looking to pair his music with a different world: fragrances.

"In a noisy world where anxiety and stress run rampant I wanted to do something about it. While in Marseille, France this summer I had a⁣n idea of merging smooth, soothing music with fragrances," Walker told VIBE.

"Today that idea is a reality. I’m thrilled to introduce: the Ayọ Fragrance + Design Studio. 'Ayọ' means 'Joy' in Yoruba and every fragrance seeks to catalyze that very emotion through smell."

“Can’t Drive a Parked Car” is a slinky, synthy record that sees Walker prophesying about pursuing one's goals while avoiding procrastination and excuses. It appears on Ayọ Volume One, which will be released on January 3rd, 2020. To get scents that accompany the music, visit http://ayostudios.com.

Premiere: Crudo Means Raw And Mabiland Reunite For Jazzy Single "La Titular"

R&B in Español isn't a new exploration, but rapper/producer Crudo Means Raw and vocalist Mabiland's latest collaboration makes it feel scared and fresh. The Colombian artists have joined forces once again for "La Titular," a thoughtful blend of dembow-funk and jazzy chords guaranteed to entice a body roll or two.

Crudo views the track as a moody rap number which makes sense given his inspirations like a Tribe Called Quest, CL Smooth and Sade. In addition to notes of love on "La Titular" it's also one of self-reflection. “La Titular" came at a time when we both found emotional stability and a couple of complicated queens," Mabiland tells VIBE VIVA. "It is also true that it emerged at a time of many changes where in progress; both changing as people, and somehow everything was also in a transition. I always enjoy being able to work with a man I am a fan of and who I call a friend." The two scored a hit last year in the Afro-Colombian fusion space and beyond with “La Mitad De La Mitad,” leading Crudo to collaborate with Juanes and former high school classmate J Balvin.

"All over the city, they were banging that track in nightclubs,” he told Rolling Stone about the track. “It would be the 2 a.m. part of the party where it gets really grimy and ratchet, and they would play my song.” If "La Mitad De La Mitad" is the turn-up, "La Titular" is definitely the futuristic Quiet Storm turn down. Other players on the track include guitarist Byron Sánchez and Las musas (Sandra Moore , Amuna y Alie) on the chorus.

Premiere: Ceraadi Provides A Proper Holiday Turn Up For "Christmas With You" Visuals

Sisterly duo Ceraadi are hilarious and charming so it's no surprise their visuals for "Christmas With You" carry the same energy.

Directed by Eli Sokhn, we find Saiyr and Emaza prepping for a typical ugly Christmas sweater party singing of their prince charmings to walk through the door. We may never see their beaus, but the dup still enjoy the bash and the spirit of the holidays–twerking with the one you love.

Emaza keeps the melodic vibes going as Saiyr drops bars about the joys of the holidays. "Christmas With You" has the makings of a holiday classic with a subtle twist to Ludacris' "What's Your Fantasy" with a groove of "My Boo" by Ghosttown DJs. If the goal was to shake things up this Christmas, the ladies have done their job.

Now available on all streaming platforms, “Christmas With You” continues to prove Ceraadi’s compelling sound and nostalgic style. The ladies of Roc Nation/Island Record have enjoyed success through singles like "Loyal" and "Dumbstruck" but they're ready to dominate 2020 with their EP. Ceraadi are also amped for their upcoming performance at The Mint in Los Angeles on December 12th.
