Anderson .Paak stitches together three album cuts for new Malibu video medley
May 1, 2016 12:35pm | Fact Magazine
New video features BJ The Chicago Kid, SA-RA, Krondon, and Donald Trump.
Anderson.Paak has unveiled a new video that stitches together three songs from his second album, Malibu, released in January this year. Co-directed by .Paak and Chris Le, the video uses green screens and animation to bring to life the story .Paak tells in the music.
The songs featured in the video, shared via Apple Music, include ‘The Season’ and ‘Carry Me’, which are joined together on the album, and ‘The Waters’, featuring BJ The Chicago Kid who appears in the video.
The scene moves from country house to dead end jobs, including a cameo by presidential candidate Donald Trump as a fire-breathing monster, and onto a baptism-like ceremony before ending in an underwater rebirth. Other cameos include SA-RA Creative Partners’ Om’mas Keith and Shafiq Husayn as well as L.A rapper Krondon (with whom Husayn debuted as White Boiz last year), who take on the roles of psychiatrist and baptists respectively.
It’s been a good year for the Oxnard native who signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label shortly after the release of Malibu and performed at Coachella, with his show one of the highlights for many critics and fans. A short Beats-sponsored documentary was released this week detailing how .Paak and Dre collaborated on the Coachella set.

I already really liked Anderson .Paak's recent album Malibu a whole lot, and everything that the guy has done since its release -- live TV performances, festival appearances, collaborations -- has only made me like him more. Today, the SoCal singer/rapper has unleashed a new music video for Malibu tracks "The … More »

Watch Flying Lotus and Pharrell discuss the current state of hip-hop
May 1, 2016 11:28am | Fact Magazine
As long as the beat’s hitting.
Los Angeles producer Flying Lotus is the guest on the latest episode of Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener’s Beats 1 radio show OTHERtone.
The trio discuss the current state of hip-hop in the show, and have shared a video of part of the conversation ahead of its broadcast today at 3pm EST via Apple Music’s radio streaming service.
The shared segment kicks off with Vener asking if hip-hop is in a good place right now leading to an interesting discussion of the shifts that the music has seen over the past decades both lyrically and sonically, including the growing importance of the producer in the conversation. Flying Lotus and Pharrell both argue that the current state of things is a reflection of the changes the music has always gone through and that fighting it is to refuse progression.
Flying Lotus, real name Steven Ellison, begins by admitting that this is a difficult conversation to have before stating that there is space today “for all kinds of different lyricists” and that “as long as the beat’s hitting” things are ok. Pharrell for his part makes the case that we shouldn’t get caught up in “how the system used to be” and that today’s rap reflects a reality where people would rather feel good than hear a story.
Watch the conversation below. The live broadcast will also feature a gues...
The weeks best videos that arent Beyoncés Lemonade
May 1, 2016 10:43am | Fact Magazine
Welcome to FACT’s weekly video round-up.
As we note at the end of every year, music videos have never been better. But too often, music videos along with documentaries, live sets and interview clips get lost in the shuffle of news and new music.

And to remove our bias, we won’t be including our own content you’ll have to stay tuned to FACT TV for all your Against The Clock, FACT Freestyles and Confessions needs.

Club cheval maintain that “sobriety is the new cool” in a high-gloss music video that adds a hint of surreality to anti-drug propaganda. Tie-dye turns to discipline, bank notes become pan pipes, weed leaves are pasted in scrapbooks… but that twitchy conclusion calls into question the whole video.

A month before his tragic passing, Prince brought his Piano & A Microphone Tour to Toronto. Over the course of two magical sets, the Purple One performed 57 songs. Though there were many highlights, the most memorable moment came when Prince paid tribute to David Bowie with a heartfelt cover of “Heroes”. Sadly, the performances takes on a whole new meaning in light of recent events.

Skepta waz not here.
Ahead of the release of his new album Konnichiwa on May 6th, Skepta has released an official video for album track ‘Man’.

Chance The Rapper teases new artwork for what could be his next album
May 1, 2016 9:32am | Fact Magazine
Chicago rapper drops a hint that we could be getting some new music soon.
Chance The Rapper uploaded an image to his Instagram account yesterday that looks like it could be the cover for his next album.
The image is a painting of Chance wearing a baseball cap with the number 3 across it. It came with the URL chanceraps.com, where you can purchase 10 posters of the image for $20, and the hashtag #chance3.
There are no clear indications that this could be the cover for Chance’s next album though the Parental Advisory sticker in the bottom right is an obvious hint that the image could be tied to some sort of release. [Via NME]
Chance The Rapper’s last solo album was 2013’s Acid Rap, a breakthrough release that thrust the young Chicago rapper into public consciousness. He followed this up with Surf in 2015, an album by the band Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment of which he is a member. Elsewhere, Chance has featured on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo and collaborated with Skrillex, Jeremih, and Lil B.
In the past years, Chance has also been an active voice for the Chicago community by taking part ...

Nashville sports anchor fired for insensitive tribute to Prince
Apr 30, 2016 6:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound
A Nashville sports anchor was reportedly fired after paying tribute to Prince during a recent broadcast.
As Death and Taxes points out, Dan Phillips included numerous references to the Purple One throughout his sports report. “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life, an electric world life, but I’m here to tell you something else … The NHL Playoffs.” Phillips said to begin the segment.
However, following the tribute, Phillips was apparently fired by Fox 17, who felt he was being “insensitive.” He wrote on his Facebook page, I want to thank everyone for the kind words, comments, and positive feedback on this tribute to Prince I did last week … Unfortunately, there were apparently some viewers, as well as management at the station, who did not feel the same way. They felt I was insensitive. And as a result, I was terminated today.
Opening for Hedley was the latest misstep in the marketing of Carly Rae Jepsen
Apr 30, 2016 4:17pm | Chart Attack
A year of think pieces came to life on Friday night at the Air Canada Centre. One thousand bloggers typing away (including myself) questioning every move of the team that surrounds Carly Rae Jepsen. The latest was on display at the packed arena of Hedley fans sitting in their chairs eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Canadian pop-rock group. As Now Magazine asked, why was she opening for Hedley? Good question.
It makes some kind of sense. Both finished third place in Canadian Idol and both make friendly, accessible pop music. But it stops making sense when you look at the trajectory of her career in the past year. She hasn't received much love from the mainstream audiences (as shown in the lower-than-projected sales figures), but found her calling with an entirely different demographic. It could be a lot like the trajectory of Robyn, who turned herself from a '90s blip into a critical darling while making a more singular, sophisticated brand of pop music.

But her team (which includes Scooter Braun, manager of Justin Bieber) is still naively trying to turn her into a major pop star. There's no need ...
