UPDATE (10.8.2015): ZHU has just premiered the full version of his collaboration with Bone Thugs N Harmony & Trombone Shorty on "Hold Up Wait A Minute" premiered today via DJ Skee Dash's radio show. Enjoy!
One of the more mysterious artists out there is undoubtedly ZHU, who seems to embrace ambiguity at any opportunity. This new teaser for ZHU's collaboration with Bone Thugs N Harmony and Trombone Shorty kicks off with the matrix style text saying “This film will self destruct in 60 seconds” then transitions to black and white cartoon imagery reminiscent of James bond or Grand Theft Auto as we see a luxurious home and car with a briefcase and rifle packed in the trunk. ZHU continues to intrigue our interests with every move he makes as this fascinating video has us wondering what he could possbily have in store for us next given his recent collaborations with Alunageorge, Gallant, and A-Trak off his upcoming EP. Stay tuned for more and enjoy!

Although we love what’s currently happening in Hip-Hop, it’s been pointed out by various rappers that the scene has become more and more saturated with a multitude of artists releasing content in a very similar style. With lyrics growing more and more incomprehensible and a recent increased use of autotune, Hopsin shows what he thinks about the current state of Hip-Hop with a comical new video.
Snoop Dogg recently made comments about this, and a producer took to Soundcloud sampling Snoop in a hilarious clip making fun of many of today’s rappers. Now Hopsin has taken it a step further releasing a music video making fun of the current trends in Hip-Hop as he raps in gibberish holding styrofoam cups stacked 8 high.
Hopsin controversly calls out rappers including Future, Migos, Travis Scott, Fetty Wap and more as he adds autotune to his nonsense raps to reveal in a comical way that the current trend in Hip-Hop has become hiding your lyrical nonsense behind a hard beat (probably produced by Metro Boomin) while using an overused flow. Watch the video below. Enjoy!
Hopsin – No Words
Snoop Dogg also commented about this recent trend making his own take on the style. Listen to the clip here:
BBC Radio 1’s Live Loung continues to prove a unique ways of artists creating content that can easily spread far. Today Kygo teams up with his recent collaborator Ella Henderson who we heard on the song "Here For You" and the two have paid a visit to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge to take on a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” and deliver it an impressive piano focused fashion. Watch the exciting video below. Enjoy

GRiZ has always been a strong supporter of his fans and 2 nights ago he reinforced his support during his New Orleans stop of his Super Shagadelic Tour when the venue's power was shut off due to the firealarm being pulled because of too much smoke in the venue.
Instead of letting the show end abruptly, GRiZ ditched his CDJ's on the fly and proceeded to play an epic sax solo all without a microphone or beat. We have the insane video that he just shared on his FB which captures the raw energy in the room during the unexpected acoustic sax solo. And some people think Electronic artists just push buttons but GRiZ proves them wrong :)!
