Get off work around 12 a.m. Walk home, and immediately retreat to the bedroom studio. Record music until sunrise, then crash until it’s time to go to work again. Rinse and repeat.   This life may sound monotonous to you, but to an artist it’s the best way to hone your craft and chase th...

Brockhampton is going to be big. If you haven’t heard of them yet, don’t worry. You’ll know them within the next year. But I would recommend listening to them before everyone starts bandwagoning, because you’ll never get to hear them in this state again.   Actually, it’s rare tha...

Xanax. Dyed dreads. Kurt Cobain sunglasses. This is the holy trinity of Soundcloud rap, the three ingredients needed to get a No Jumper interview and the adoration of millions of stupid Hypebeast virgins.
