Lupe Fiasco just unveiled the artwork and tracklist for Tetsuo & Youth. The album, due out January 20th, will be 16 tracks long and feature a slew of other artists. The excitement and anticipation will continue to build up in the next two months. I have a feeling that Lupe is really going to impress with this release.

Nas and Henny have had a partnership for a while now. In the latest video from the two, Nas can be seen riding through a time machine subway that takes him through iconic eras/ places in New York’s history. This all goes down while “New York State of Mind” plays in the background. Check out the commercial below.
The second episode of G-Eazy’s tour video is here. Check out a recap of his shows in Albuquerque, Houston, Chicago, Tampa Bay, Ft. Lauderdale, and Atlanta. Shot by Ben Wolin and Goodboyshady, this is definitely worth a watch. Check it out below.
John C. Reilly stars in this short video for Mr. Oizo’s track, “HAM.” With direction from Eric Wareheim, one-half of the comedic duo Tim & Eric, this one is unlike anything we’ve seen in a long while. John wreaks havoc on a small dollar store while attempting to get the last stuffed toy. Things come to a bloody end after guns are drawn and the store’s clerk is the last one left standing. Check it out below and see what Mr. Oizo had to say about it:
“’Ham’ was a concept that I came up with like a year ago. I was visiting my relatives in St. Louis and we were going to a Wal-Mart to stock up on ammunition because my uncle was going to take us shooting at the range. And at the Wal-Mart there were about six or seven enormously obese people on Rascal scooters all trying to get in the front door at the same time. It was like a logjam. Then I walked in and noticed more of these Rascal scooters were going up to McDonald’s, which was inside Wal-Mart, and they would get their Big Macs and sodas and they would shop with the food, so they would be taking clothes and putting them on their bodies for sizing and they’d be all stained with ketchup and meat grease. It was just unbelievable. And then we went to the ammunition section and it’s literally right next to the toy section, which I couldn’t believe. So this whole idea of how our society is going toward fast food, obesity, and all the gun violence that’s been going on for the past couple years—it hit me really hard and I wanted to make something kind of showing the future of America, or actually present day America. A lot of my work doesn’t really have a social statement but this one leans a little more toward that.”
