Flying Lotus' forthcoming album You're Dead! serves as a concept album depicting the journey of death through musical voyage. Steven Ellison is the maestro behind Flying Lotus and he continues to push musical boundaries with his fusion of Jazz and electronic production on You're Dead!. Enlisting the talents of lyrical wizard Kendrick Lamar on "Never Catch Me", we got to hear the amazing chemistry between the two artists.
One view on the meaning of the video is it reflecting on the concept behind the album as a young boy & girl experience death and seemingly jump back to life in an energetic dance during their funeral ceremony, but remain unnoticed by those in attendance. The children have a ghostly presence as they dance out of the ceremony only to hop into the hearse and cheerfully drive away as if they've just been freed. We can only expect more collaborations between these two L.A. based legends in the making as they have expressed great excitement to be working together. Be sure to grab You're Dead when it's released Oct 7 via Warp Records.

After releasing his debut studio album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, Kendrick Lamar went from being a promising new rapper out of Compton to one of the most respected faces in hip-hop coached by Dr. Dre himself. Today we get the new single from Kendrick since his Grammy nominated album titled "i", which could be the first song from his forthcoming album. Packing an epic intro, instantly catchy guitar focused production and mixture of rapping some choruses and unreal verses. If this is a taste of what we can expect, his new record could potentially match or top m.a.a.d. city if that is even possible. Listen to this instant hit and be thankful that Kendrick is back. Enjoy!

The first ever iHeartRadio Music Awards went down last night in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium. Out of the star studded appearances none other than Compton local Kendrick Lamar managed to steal the show. Before performing, Kendrick Lamar touches on an intro piece about being 8 years old and seeing Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg recording the music video for their iconic hit "California Love" at a local swap meet. "Legendary," as Kendrick says it was one of the most inspiring moments of his life. This story perfectly transitions into an unbelievable cover of "California Love" as a tribute to the legends and his hometown then moves into his own hit "m.a.a.d. city". Stream the performance below and above all… Enjoy
