It's been almost an entire year with no new Childish Gambino outside of the epic "Sweatpants" music video released back in January.
Well today a new music video from Childish Gambino has surfaced, for his 2012 collaboration "Tell Me" with Heems (Das Racist). What's interesting is that neither artist has aknowledged the video yet.
The song "Tell Me" was from Heems mixtape Wild Water Kingdom, and no video was ever released. As we see both rappers, it's obvious that it was produced, but never finished.
We are treated to a black and white music video showing Childish and Heems in a hotel room with a variety of girls drinking a lot of champagne.
Childish Gambino – "Tell Me" ft. Heems (Das Racist) (Unreleased Music Video)
Last night completed the second exciting day of music of Governor's Ball Music Fesival which takes place annually in New York City. The 4 year old festival has quickly become one of the leading events in the country, blending a perfect balance of some of the coolest acts on the rise along with mainstream icons.
Australian's latest tastemaker to explode globally is Flume, who had one of the most anticipated sets of the weekend. With this being the very first date of his impressive American summer music festival tour, and an incredibly overdue followup album that is expected to be done or near completion, the hype couldn't be bigger for him to preview some unreleased music.
Well, he started his set with a roaring, packed crowd as the sun was on its way down. He played a variety of the hit songs from his first album alongside popular remixes. Then he let the crowd know that he had something new for us; he previewed a song that could only be described as his take on house music. We have a near 3 minute video of the new song that has some incredible signature melodies and infectious dance grooves. It sounded like it had some inspiration from his future classic label mate Hayden James.
He also played an epic remix of Notorious B.I.G. that I can only assume he made as a summer festival weapon.
The last track of the evening was another new one, yet this sounded far, far different then anything we have ever heard from Flume. This sounded like his version of a festival trap anthem. (And I never thought I'd say trap anthem and Flume in the same sentence.) From the outrageous tribal sounding 808s and unreal drums and screeching synths, this is totally a new side of Flume. We have an almost 2 minute video of this track as well.
Watch the videos below, and do not miss Flume as he is playing a large amount of festivals and headline shows all summer. We will keep you posted on any news regarding all of the originals he played.
While promoting the release of his latest album You're Dead! Flying Lotus, made it known that he was sitting on over a dozen tracks with prominent west coast rapper Kendrick Lamar. Due to music industry politics, the only FlyLo and K.Dot collab to make the album was "Never Catch Me". Now, an unreleased verse from the track "Eyes Above" (an instrumental on the album) has surfaced during a recent FlyLo live performance that features Kendrick going in hot on the beat. The verse in question was originally created during an intimate studio session between FlyLo and Kendrick. You can watch a snippet of the track below, and let's hope this collab sees the light of day in the near future.
