And other hip hop news.
Pusha T reveals collaboration
Busy, busy times for King Push. Since the release of Daytona, the G.O.O.D Music CEO has been riding that wave of success and connection with a new, younger demographic of hip hop fans. When it comes to new music, he’s been hard at work on the follow up to the acclaimed Daytona drop.
Recently releasing his Lauryn Hill collaboration ‘Coming Home’, Pusha T confirmed in an interview on Beats 1 that his new album is on the way and Kanye West is definitely in the pocket assisting him on this one.
“That’s what I’m in here now cooking up, right now,” he told Ebro Darden via Skype. “That’s what I’m going for. I feel like I’m well on my way. I got some really, really hot.”
Travis Scott hits Netflix
The new Travis Scott documentary Look Mom I Can Fly is finally on Netflix for fans to get around. The film takes a look behind the scenes of one of hip hop’s most well known names, particularly charting the making of his ASTROWORLD album. Scott has kept his private life exactly that, which is impressive given his partner is one of the most famous women in the world, but the documentary finally gives fans a look at the rapper in dad and partner mode.
Featuring insights into his preparation for the Super Bowl, hearing the now classic verse from Drake that would end up on ‘SICKO MODE’ for the first time, and the elation that came with tying the ASTROWORLD project up, Look Mom I Can Fly is a must-see for Travis Scott diehards.
Lil Wayne is back
Gone are the days when Lil Wayne fans were kept waiting years for new collections of material. Now we’re getting a follow up to Tha Carter V sooner rather than later.
The rapper confirmed this week that his long-awaited Funeral project was pretty much done, and is expected to be out before the end of the year. In as recent interview, Weezy hyped up his forthcoming release. “If you’re a Wayne fan, I know we’ve been going through a lot of tough times right now, but if you are a Wayne fan, we about to hold our heads high soon.”
Funeral was first teased back in 2016, though not many details were revealed about the project at the time.
