Tyler the creator stephen colbert

Tyler, The Creator just released his new album Flower Boy last week and is already sounding like his best project to date. Now to celebrate its release, Tyler has made an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Although Frank Ocean didn’t perform his part of the track alongside Tyler, The Internet’s Steve Lacy did make an appearance to sing the hook for the impressive performance. Tyler’s live shows have always been incredible as he’s been known to be one of the most wild live performers, but shows that he’s also just as good performing an extra chill song as well. He also joins Stephen for an interview that’s as hilarious as you’d imagine. Enjoy!

Kendrick Lamar Gives Interview Ranking Own Albums, Reveals He Has Thousands Of Unreleased Tracks & More

Kendrick Lamar Big Boy interview

Kendrick Lamar joined Big Boy’s Real 92.3 radio show for a new interview as he offers some new insights into what’s been going on with him lately. Whenever Kendrick gives an interview it’s always an interesting conversation and this one is no different. 

When his new album DAMN. dropped there were endless fan theories about the project, with one of the more popular ones being that he was going to drop a second project within the week. He offered a bit of insight without saying too much ““I had a selection of songs,” he said “I don’t wanna call it an album, but it definitely made sense for DAMN..” Whether these tracks will see the light of day or not is a mystery but we did get to hear his throwaways from To Pimp A Butterfly with his untitled. unmastered. project so we’re hoping he blesses us once again. 

Throughout he interview he also discusses the album title revealing he was originally thinking of calling it What Happens On Earth Stays On Earth. He touches on his creative process, buying his sister a car, how he has thousands of unreleased songs, his new album and even ranks his albums in order of his favorites. See the full interview below and enjoy! 

[PREMIERE] 17-Year-Old Artist Ninajirachi Shares Her Incredible New Single "Same World" With Yates + Interview

Ninajirachi press shot

Ninajirachi, the 17-year-old producer from Australia, has delivered on her latest release “Same World” with the help from fellow Aussie singer-songwriter, Yates via Sweatitout. This is the second release from the high-school student following “Pure Luck” which has seen a ton of support already. Ninajirachi gained the attention from Zane Lowe and was placed on TripleJ high rotation with her debut release. Because of her preceding success, expectations were set high for Ninajirachi; Expectations that were exceeded with her latest track “Same World’ that we have the pleasure of premiering along with an interview with the young artist.

“Same World” starts with an irregular percussion pattern that resembles the flair of Mura-Masa. Accompanied by minimalistic synths and vocal bits from Yates, this tune captures listener’s attention immediately. But, as the track gains momentum with complex layers and distinguished vocals it is clear that Ninajirachi has earned her early praise for a proper reason. We also enjoyed speaking with Ninajirchi which you can read below. Enjoy!

Ninajirachi x Yates - Same World | Purchase

How long have you been producing? 

I started playing with music software after my mum got a new computer when I was 8 or 9, but I didn’t start seriously trying to make full length original songs until I was around 13 or 14.

Did you play instruments before picking up production? 

I started piano lessons at around 5 and played all the time for many years. I don’t take lessons anymore, but I often still play for leisure when I have the time. I also played clarinet in my primary school band for a few years.

What was it like having such a successful debut release at this young age?

Sooo crazy!! Freya and I made Pure Luck just for fun and we had no idea that so many people would hear it and like it. It has been stressful because I’m doing HSC work as well, but none the less very exciting.

What is the story and meaning behind this new song?

I’d hate to infer meaning upon the song since the lyrics all belong to Yates, but for me it seems to really push a notion of unity and synergy.

Any specific influences affecting you on this release?

Not particularly. I had this little drum loop that I made a couple of days before I started working on Same World, and I put it over the top of the vocals and chords just to see what it would sound like. It ended up sounding really good to me, and the whole song really flourished after that. I guess you could say that drum loop was my influence, haha.

What can fans look forward to next?

Hopefully some more new music over the coming months, and hopefully many more exciting things once I’ve finished school!
