iLoveMakonnen Assaulted Onstage At CMJ
Oct 22, 2014 8:30pm | StereoGum

Last night during a CMJ performance at SOBs, iLoveMakonnen was assaulted while performing “Club Going Up On A Tuesday.” Judging from a video of the incident that Makonnen tweeted out earlier today, a man in the front row reached out to the rapper and then grabbed his hand and dragged him down, punching him multiple times. The fight was quickly broken up by someone that was on stage who jumped down after the attacker and cleared the floor.


Tobias Jesso Jr. Preps Debut Goon With Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Carney, Chet JR White
Oct 22, 2014 8:07pm | StereoGum

Singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. has captivated us since “True Love” earlier this year and it seems like we’re not alone. In a new interview with Pitchfork, he details some big-name collaborators that he’s working with for his debut album, Goon, which is due out next year. In addition to former Girls bassist Chet “JR” White (who produced “True Love”), the album will feature production from Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Carney, and the New Pornographers’ John Collins. That’s a pretty interesting team, and it looks like Jesso will be putting out one of the most anticipated debuts of next year. Read the full interview here.

Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer leaks, causes worldwide nerdgasm watch
Oct 22, 2014 7:48pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Less than 24 hours after Marvel announced that they’d be premiering the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron following next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the whole thing has leaked online. Let the nerdgasms commence.

Our first taste of Joss Whedon’s superhero team sequel presents a much darker tone than its predecessor. Over a creepy rendition of “I’ve Got No String” from Pinocchio, we see images of Captain America’s shield shattered, Thor’s hammer dropping, and a very defeated looking Tony Stark. We also get a first look at newcomers Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch in action (outsider of the Winter Solider stinger, that is), as well as a spine-chilling introduction to James Spader’s villainous Ultron. Oh, and there’s a freakin’ Hulk-Buster armor. Watch below (via MovieWeb).

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits US theaters May 1st. (It’s worth noting that the trailer clearly says “This April,” meaning there’s a good chance this is an international version and the trailer coming with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could be different). Whedon returns to direct the talents of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smuld...

Watch 2 Chainz try out the most expensive toothbrush in the world
Oct 22, 2014 6:49pm | Fact Magazine

“5000 motherf*ckin’ dollars for a toothbrush?”

2 Chainz has tested out the world’s most expensive toothbrush in the latest instalment of GQ’s ‘Most Expensivest Shit’ series. The rapper tested the German-made Reinast luxury toothbrush which retails for a cool 3200. The toothbrush is made from solid titanium and features a patented anti-bacterial coating.

The video also contains some useful advice on the correct way to floss. 2 Chainz’ dental advisor demonstrates that you’re supposed to do it before you brush and that flossing is much more effective when you wrap the floss around your middle fingers as opposed to your index fingers, just in case you were wondering.

Automotive Songwriter/Author/Inventor Neil Young Announces Art Show For His Car Watercolors
Oct 22, 2014 6:22pm | StereoGum

Looks like Neil Young has a thing about (for?) cars. Let’s recap: His 2009 album, Fork In The Road, was inspired by his Lincoln Continental, which he had retrofitted into a more fuel-efficient version that he called the LincVolt, and which ended up being totally flammable. He just published a book called Special Deluxe: A Memoir Of Life And Cars that’s all about the various cars he’s owned throughout his 68 years on Earth. And the cover art for his latest album, Storytone features … you guessed it: a car! It turns out that artwork is part of a larger collection of watercolors that Young has painted over the years. This collection will be on display at California’s Robert Berman Gallery for an exhibition that will take place at the end of November. I miss the good old days when he was just talking about cotton or trying to bring down the iPod. You can find out more info about the car exhibition at the gallery’s website — Young will appear at the opening reception on 11/3.


Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and 9th Wonder join forces as Indie 500
Oct 22, 2014 6:06pm | Fact Magazine

The hip hop trio combine to carry on the spirit of Native Tongues.

Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and 9th Wonder have come together to form a new collective called Indie 500. The collective will pull together the rosters of Kweli’s Jamla Records, Monch’s W.A.R. Media and 9th Wonder’s Javotti Media to form a much greater force independent from the major label system.

We looked at each other and we were like, we should do business together and music together.” said Pharoahe Monch.  ”Not just on the rap side, but on the touring side, the business side and sharing of information. Its empowering, its beautiful, and its important for that to be known. To inspire younger generations to not only rap, but to start companies and corporations.

9th Wonder gave fans an insight into what they can expect from the trio, stating Indie 500 is a kind of continuation of the Native Tongues sound all the way to the Rawkus sound. Badu, Jill Scott, Slum Village anywhere that has that texture of sound that feels good with good lyrics Indie 500 is a continuation of that and a new generation. Were trying to continue on the tradition of classic what they like to call traditional hip-hop. Grass roots, deep-rooted hip-hop music.

Watch all three rappers discuss their plans for Indie 500 in the video below. [via OkayPlayer]

Stream Line & Circle Line & Circle EP
Oct 22, 2014 5:40pm | StereoGum

For their new self-titled EP, Line & Circle teamed up with Lewis Pesacov — who also recorded Best Coast’s Crazy For You — for their cleanest and most clear-headed work yet. It’s only three tracks long, but the group combines the sunniness of their new L.A. locale with the unfussiness of their Midwestern upbringing and manages channel the best of ’80s indie rock. We’ve already heard opening track “Wounded Desire,” and you can hear the rest below.


iLoveMakonnen attacked by audience member during NYC performance
Oct 22, 2014 5:24pm | Fact Magazine

Face swelling up on a Tuesday. 

Man of the moment iLoveMakonnen became the victim of an unprovoked attack Tuesday night when performing his hit single ‘Tuesday’ (of course) with fellow breakout stars Rae Sremmurd at New York City’s SOBs venue.

The Atlanta rapper and singer was performing his ubiquitous single when an unknown audience member decided to pull him off the stage mid-performance and punch him in the face in what can only be described as a pretty despicable act. One half of Rae Sremmurd and a member of Makonnen’s entourage were quick to step in.

Luckily Drake’s latest signing was relatively unfazed, swiftly getting back to his feet and moving forward with the show. Watch the clip above.

The Bug Mi Lost (Feat. Miss Red) Video
Oct 22, 2014 4:27pm | StereoGum

The British producer the Bug released his all-over-the-place album Angels & Devils a little while ago, and after dropping his epic dystopian “Function / Void” video, he’s made a very different clip for “Mi Lost,” a collaboration with the Israeli dancehall artist Miss Red. This is a small, low-budget video, one that focuses entirely on Miss Red and on smeary in-camera effects. Directors Aviya Wyse and Daniel Tsukahira filmed the clip in Miss Red’s Haifa City hometown. Watch it below.


Britney Spears is making $1 million a week in Las Vegas
Oct 22, 2014 4:26pm | Fact Magazine

That’s about 8,000 Skepta videos per week.

Britney Spears has spent the last year performing her Piece of Me show at the Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas to the tune of $310,000 per performance, or almost $30 million over two years.

If that number wasn’t eye-popping enough, TMZ reports that the ticket sales of her show have been so good that she was able to negotiate for an even larger stake in the residency. With back end, merchandising and other perks, she’ll earn $475,000 per show just behind top Vegas earner Celine Dion ($476,000).

At her new rate, and with an increase to 140 shows over the 2-year period, that’s about $1 million per week. Not bad for an artist whose last album was “palpably depressing.”

Honeyblood Choker Video
Oct 22, 2014 4:05pm | StereoGum

Over the summer, the Scottish duo Honeyblood released a wonderfully incisive and hooky self-titled ’90s-style fuzz-rock debut album. It’s one of those albums that gets better every time I hear it. (The single “Super Rat” is a great place to start.) They’ve just made a video for “Choker,” a pointed song about falling in love with someone you can’t trust. The Tardo/Williams-directed video turns them into noir heroines, which is a good look for them. Check it out below.


Download Lil Data Sup
Oct 22, 2014 3:46pm | StereoGum

The producer Lil Data is best known for appearing on the six-way DISown mix, one of the releases that put the PC Music label on people’s radars. Now the label has released Sup, an EP that shines a spotlight on the producer in much the same way GFOTY’s Secret Mix and Kane West’s Western Beats did for those artists. Data’s work falls on the friendlier side of the PC Music spectrum, though that’s all relative to the other music released by the label, which has all but built a home in the uncanny valley. Still, this is a tremendously fun listen, from the popping bubble beats to the warped sample of the Spice Girls. Stream it as one long track below and head here to download it.
