Up and coming rapper Glasses Malone has enlisted none other than Kendrick Lamar for a feature on his latest tune “Thuggin.” Kendrick steered away from his gangster rap tendencies on his new critically acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly, and now has a fresh verse offering his lyrical insight on what it means to be a thug. There seems to be no stopping Kdot as he keeps delivering fresh features lately with his new verses on Kanye's “All Day,” the “It’s True” remix, and his “Eye’s Above” collab with Flying Lotus. Now he gives us yet another great verse where he even brings some singing vocal effects to polish out his refreshing rhymes.

Distorting Chet’s vocals past the point of recognition, adding an epic eerie baseline, and middle eastern sounding strings, Ta-Ku and Gravez have “Invented the Re-Remix LOL,” as they have taken on Ta-Ku's previously released remix of this track. Listen below and enjoy!

The public was led to believe that electronic indie duo Crystal Castles was a thing of the past since front singer Alice Glass announced her removal from the group last October. Well producer and songwriter of the duo Ethan Kath just wrote a pretty shocking and exciting new message letting everyone know that Alice was not even apart of the groups' most popular songs like "Untrust Us", "Crimewave", "Vanished" and more. He has also shareed a brand new song.
Ethan Kath shared this new song with this accompaning blurb: Moments later, Ethan has now removed most of this:
"i wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavors. i think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. it should be rewarding for her considering she didn't appear on Crystal Castles' best known songs. (she's not on Untrust Us. Not In Love, Vanished, Crimewave, Vietnam, Magic Spells, Knights, Air War, Leni, Lovers Who Uncover, Violent Youth, Reckless, Year of Silence, Intimate, 1991, Good Time, Violent Dreams etc.). people often gave her credit for my lyrics and that was fine, i didn't care."
You can stream the full song below and lets hope this is the first piece of a forthcoming new EP or even album from Crystal Castles in the near future.
