Stephen Colbert recently ended his iconic show The Colbert Report on Comedy Central with the exciting news of taking over The Tonight Show, but temporarily he is in between shows until The Tonight Show is ready for him. Well Stephen Colbert couldn't hold back from hosting a show and took matter into his own hands and visited the small town of Monroe, Michigan and took over their local Public Access show "Only In Monroe" and stepped in as the guest host. To make things even better he brought out a guest for this special edition of the show, and the guest is none other then Eminem.
Now if that doesn't already have you sold, just sit back and watch this simply hilarious, just under 60 minute long talk show. Stephen starts off delivering a funny tale between a local business and a Yelp customer which then brings us to the prize of the show with Eminem. I honestly can't figure out if Eminem is joking around and acting, or if geniuenly gets pissed off at Stephen's purposeful igornanace of Eninem's massive career writing it off as a hobby that he should just give up on.
Grab some pop corn, sit back, and watch one of the funnier interviews we've seen in quite some time. Enjoy!
Kendrick Lamar's critically acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly is undoubtedly one of the most important albums in recent history, and this new video for “Alright” brings the visual side to the messages Kdot conveys through his music. This video splices together parts from “U” in the intro and moves into a new verse before it goes into the album version of “Alright" in an entirely black and white video. The visual interpretation displays racial issues and police brutality while Kendrick does some really crazy stunts flying around, dancing on street signs, and it ends with him getting shot by the police. Enjoy!

Still fresh after the release of Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise album, he has unleashed a crazy new music video for the highlight song off the album. Sean brought Kanye West out to the club on the ferocious video for their “All Your Fault” collaboration, and you might want some 3D glasses for these frantic, psychedelic, party oriented visuals. They display their undeniable chemistry as they trade bars while the video effects make it look like they are holograms in a club as the visuals represent the intensity of the song, and A$AP Ferg even makes a cameo. I imagine these two bring the same energy displayed in this video to their studio sessions. Enjoy!

Roc Nation’s newest signee, Vic Mensa, has exploded out of the Chicago Hip-Hop scene as he preps for the release of his debut studio album, Traffic. Vic has yet to provide a tracklist or release date for this project, but he’s unleashed a handful of hits that could make the cut including “Feel That,” “Wimme Nah,” “Down On My Luck,” “Drive Me Crazy,” and the Kanye West-assisted “U Mad.”
Vic has unveiled the visuals to go along with “U Mad,” his collaboration alongside his fellow Chicagoan Kanye. This trippy video shows Vic in a straight jacket and wildin out with his crew as he and Kanye trade fresh bars and show that a new era has taken charge of the impressive Chicago hip hop scene. Stay tuned for more info on Traffic, and be sure to check him out on his “Traffic Tour Pt. 1” if you’re on the west coast.
Last night completed the second exciting day of music of Governor's Ball Music Fesival which takes place annually in New York City. The 4 year old festival has quickly become one of the leading events in the country, blending a perfect balance of some of the coolest acts on the rise along with mainstream icons.
Australian's latest tastemaker to explode globally is Flume, who had one of the most anticipated sets of the weekend. With this being the very first date of his impressive American summer music festival tour, and an incredibly overdue followup album that is expected to be done or near completion, the hype couldn't be bigger for him to preview some unreleased music.
Well, he started his set with a roaring, packed crowd as the sun was on its way down. He played a variety of the hit songs from his first album alongside popular remixes. Then he let the crowd know that he had something new for us; he previewed a song that could only be described as his take on house music. We have a near 3 minute video of the new song that has some incredible signature melodies and infectious dance grooves. It sounded like it had some inspiration from his future classic label mate Hayden James.
He also played an epic remix of Notorious B.I.G. that I can only assume he made as a summer festival weapon.
The last track of the evening was another new one, yet this sounded far, far different then anything we have ever heard from Flume. This sounded like his version of a festival trap anthem. (And I never thought I'd say trap anthem and Flume in the same sentence.) From the outrageous tribal sounding 808s and unreal drums and screeching synths, this is totally a new side of Flume. We have an almost 2 minute video of this track as well.
Watch the videos below, and do not miss Flume as he is playing a large amount of festivals and headline shows all summer. We will keep you posted on any news regarding all of the originals he played.
Claude VonStroke is one of the leaders in the American dance world who has also fostered a global presence thanks to flawless live sets at clubs and festivals across the world.
His dirtybird label is responsible for turning out some of the top secret weapons in innumerable Djs sets, but when he steps up to release a single himself it is always something special. His newest single "Make A Cake" has been released as the b-side to his Barrump single and is a gritty, tech house heater. The song is full of just the right details and texture to capture that booty shaking dirtybird sound.
For the video we see the erotic, hilarious adventure of a blow up suit character going on a classic movie-style date with a hot girl. They play mini golf, go go-cart racing, hit the batting cages, and get it on in their parked car. The girl then proceeds to pop the inflatable character with her fingernail which causes him to almost pass out before the girl saves him with some roadskies to cap off the ridiculous video. How could you expect anything less from Claude at this point? Enjoy.

Iconic house producer Eric Prydz, respected for his music, unbelieavable DJ sets, as well as live shows and production visuals, has become one of the most praised artists in dance music. Well, today he goes one step further with the official music video of his chart topping house anthem "Generate" that is a true visual journey. Surprisingly enough there is NO USE OF CGI in the video. GMUNK, who helped direct Tron and Oblivion, has created a 3d LED "Sugar Cube" installation that is full of mirrors which creates a kaleidoscopic illusion. Stream the song and watch the video below for yourself and pick up your copy June 8th.

The Weeknd has been fairly quiet since the release of his first true radio breakout “Earned It,” which was originally for the 50 Shades Of Grey soundtrack. Abel has now unleashed a brand new track titled “The Hills” alongside a music video that has been previously performed live, and was thought to be titled “Mood Music.”
The Weeknd never fails to deliver captivating music videos and this latest video is no exception. Eerie, dark visuals set the tone perfectly for the song. Abel emerges from a car crash, which then engulfs in a fiery explosion while he walks away from the crash as he offers his explicit, sensual crooning until he ultimately ends up in a strange bedroom with multiple women. Enjoy.
