GoldLink, who is behind recent collaborations such as “Boo You Know” with Falcons and “Let’s Go” with Khalid, has covered Outkast’s legendary song “Roses” on BBC Radio 1 and it is everything one could hope for. A frequent TSIS favorite, GoldLink released his debut album titled At What Cost this past march and since has become one of the hottest growing hip-hop artists in the game. He is an incredibly versatile artist, able to modify his voice to fit the theme of any song as he exhibits in this cover.
The cover definitely does the original justice, keeping the integrity but making the GoldLink touch inevitable. He sings the song incredibly well, showing to viewers that he is more than just a rapper, but rather a skilled vocalist and artist. The cover is, for the most part, the same as the original. However, receives an original verse from Hare Squead, who have worked with GoldLink in the past on tracks such as “Herside Story”. Enjoy!
There’s no dispute that 2017 has been the year of the Gorillaz. After a long hiatus the group burst back onto the scene this year with the release of their Humanz album, spearheading one of the biggest album rollouts we’ve ever seen and announcing their inaugural Demon Dayz festival in England, which took place on June 10.
Over a month later Red Bull Music & Culture has finally uploaded Gorillaz’s exciting 2-hour performance from the festival, and it’s everything we hoped it’d be and more. Between the visuals, guest artists, the sunset in the background, the crowd singing along to every word and, of course, the music, everything about the set was incredible. The group played a diverse mix of both Humanz tracks and older songs, starting with “Ascension” and keeping the energy high from there on out. Be sure to check out the set ASAP – it’s only available for a 2-week exclusive. Enjoy!

Entrepreneur, author, and YouTuber Evan Carmichael has done us the favor of handpicking Skrillex’s top ten rules for success from a variety of sources.
"Make music for the 16-year-old inside yourself even when you’re 50 years old. F*** the craft. Everyone can learn how to do this s***…Cultivate your own thing. Stick together and just do that. Have some fun, make some music. If it’s fun – that’s all that matters." –Skrillex
"Part of what we look for in an artist is not really someone that makes great music, but it’s someone that has that energy, that devotion to what they’re doing, and that’s a big thing, man. That’s what I look for in the artists that I sign – are people that are really talented and people that have that energy like ‘I’m just gonna do it.’" – Skrillex
