TDE, home to Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, SZA, Isaiah Rashad and Lance Skiiiwalker, has revealed the newest member of their family after cryptically teasing him for a few months.

He goes by SiR and is based out of Inglewood, Calif. To celebrate the new addition, the label has released a new song called "W$ Boi" along with some tripped out visuals.

The artist has a distinctly different sound than anyone on the TDE roster. SiR sings for most of the song which has a definite R&B influence. The visuals, as mentioned, are extremely trippy with everything being inverted and switching between a variety of colors.

Wanting to properly soak in the song, I listened multiple times back-to-back with each listen making me more a fan of the track and video...a great sign for a new artist.

He secretly released the HER EP last fall with Kendrick supporting on Twitter ahead of the announcement that he was joining the label. Watch below and stay tuned on what's next from SiR. Enjoy!

Mixtapes Released On Soundcloud Will Be Eligible To Win A Grammy In 2018

Chance Color press shot

Just last year, Chance the Rapper managed to change the landscape of the music business by pushing through a petition to change the Grammy qualifications so that mixtapes that are not sold could still be be considered eligible to win. Thanks to his effort, Chance was nominated for seven total Grammys with his latest project, Coloring Book, being nominated for three, all of which he has a great chance of winning. 

Well Chance has just broken some news that, in 2018, all projects released on Soundcloud will be eligible for a Grammy, regardless of if they are up on streaming services. The Grammys has shared new criteria in which music to be considered is from a streaming service that has existed for over a year and has a paid subscription service. Since Soundcloud Go launched back in March, they missed the cutoff for the 2017 Grammys, but Soundcloud projects will be eligible for next year's award show. 

This is amazing news for independent artists who might not be familiar with the process of getting music up on streaming services. It's exciting to see such a long-running, highly-respected award organization adapt to the modern landscape of music.
