The recent news of genre bending powerhouse producer / DJ RL Grime's releasing his first full-length studio album this year on the WeDidIt Records has the internet going nuts over what is anticipated to be a massive collection of original music. The albums debut track, "Core", features a relentless bass heavy beat full of middle eastern influence via an eerie synth pattern, 808 knocks, and an overall cinematic flavor you can't deny.

Going back to the album, we know RL Grime has been in and out of the studio with rapper Big Sean and reputable producer Noah Breakfast, and we can say for certain that the electronic music world will be turned upside down when his debut album is delivered in full later this year.

Breaking records last evening Eminem marked history as the first rapper ever to headline the iconic Wembley Stadium (90,000 people) in London last night for the first of two shows. Opening talent consisted of Odd Future and Danny Brown setting the tone for Em to offer quite a legendary performance.
The earth froze mid way through his set when Dr. Dre was brought out on stage for a surprise reunion that no one saw coming. The living legends kick off with “Still D.R.E”, followed by "Nuthin But A G Thang" into and finally “Forgot About Dre”. We can only hope this is not a one time performance and we can hopefully see more Dre in the current future.
