One of the next rappers to explode out of the unreal Chicago rap scene is Towkio having done a fair amount of work with both Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper. He is set to release an upcoming mixtape and just unleashed one of the hottest tracks “Involved”, produced by Montreal’s Kaytranada delivering an upbeat dance infused track. Vic Mensa also offers a featured verse that shines strong and is tied together by Towkio’s unique flow. Listen below and look out for a download soon. Enjoy!

The 2015 Grammys were filled with a variety of a high energy performances and entertaining laughs, but one of the highlights has to be Kanye West interrupting Beck accepting the Album of The Year award, beating out Beyoncé.
This pays an ode to when he stopped Taylor Swift from accepting the award for Best Female Video Of the Year in 2009 beating out Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" at the MTV 09' VMA's.
This of course is a joke with Kanye smiling the whole time and Beck even offering for him to speak on the mic, but either way is worth the hilarious laugh.
Also, even funnier is Jay-Z's horridly amused face from the crowd witnessing Kanye go on stage.
Australian native, and one half of Australian rising super duo Carmada, Yahtzel has surprised us with a brand new original just days before he sets out for his first North American tour. We first featured Yahtzel on his remix of Peking Duk's "High" and his collaboration with L D R U (before Carmada project) on "The Only One", but today might be one of his best yet. "If You Leave" is a relaxing glass of chilled out vibes with influence from fellow Aussie, Flume while still standing completely his own. The slowed track will have you repeating this one time and time again, so listen below and grab a free download. Enjoy
