Two daughters of blues legend B. B. King, who died earlier this month, have accused the musician’s aides of poisoning him.

Grimes isn
May 25, 2015 1:47pm | Chart Attack

In the era of the out-of-the-blue album release, not everyone can perform the manoeuvre as elegantly as, say, Beyoncé. Responding to Twitter fans Sunday, Grimes divulged that the highly-anticipated follow-up to Visions (after that polarizing Rihanna reject and a scrapped album) will be dropped as a surprise.

She tipped her hand a bit further, telling fans that they can expect this top secret, ultra special surprise precisely in October, which suggests that Grimes, like myself, isn't a terribly great secret keeper. Or maybe she's fed up with the typical album rollout schedule or of having each newly released song being disseminated as her "new sound." Maybe album release dates are played out.

Or maybe, just maybe, she doesn't even know what a surprise is, and

Life After Dilla: 25 great post-Donuts instrumental hip-hop mixtapes
May 25, 2015 10:31am | Fact Magazine

So why post-Donuts?

Donuts is a somewhat arbitrary point to single out, but it can be used as a convenient marker on the timeline of independent hip-hop. In our list of the 100 best indie hip-hop records, Donuts was set as a cutoff because it felt like the last really significant release of that era.

New York began its decline, and the South rose to prominence on a national scale. The nascent blog boom allowed access to a wealth of previously obscure material, prompting a reassessment of the historical canon and spurring cross-pollination between previously far-flung styles. Soon enough, the internet, for better or worse, would become a wellspring of new ideas that pointed to unexpected and radically different directions.

Aftershocks were felt in instrumental hip-hop too. In the wake of Donuts the sub-genre grew stale, partly suffocated by a wave of well-meaning but uninspired posthumous tributes to Dilla himself. But as rap evolved, hip-hop instrumentals were quick to follow. A period of nearly unchecked file sharing provided producers with an unprecedented amount of new sample sources from a variety of locales and musical epochs. Sampling and live instrumentation intermingled more and more, closing the gap betwe...
