Following up the official release of 2014 Forest Hills Drive Cole keeps the ball rolling with the video for “Apparently.” The video is nothing wild, but worth a watch, you can see Cole sitting in the green room with bright visuals dancing around behind his silhouette while he raps about being unfaithful and dedication.

Concert Recap: Ab-Soul, Bas, EarthGang, Hashu, and Dreamer @ Park Street Saloon, Columbus, Ohio

Park Street Saloon was the place to be last night if you were in Columbus. Ab-Soul and a number of other performers put on a very dope show. Check out some photos of the performance below.

Dreamer, who was featured on XXL’s The Break earlier this year, started the night off on a high note with his set.

The next performer was Hashu. The 16 year old Columbus native performed quite a few songs, including “What I Do.” Which he dropped two days ago and you can stream below.

Atlanta’s EarthGang took the stage after Hashu and played a wild set. Their sound is new to us here at Smooth Waves but you can bet that you’ll be seeing and hearing more from them in the future. Everything about the duo, from their outfits to their lyrics, was very dope.

Next up was Bas. Bas is part of J. Cole’s Dreamville Record label. The NY native not only had a killer set but also had a section of the crowd that looked as though they had come out just for him.

Once Bas left the stage it all Ab-Soul for the remainder of the night. His performance was something else. For over an hour he performed songs from all over his resumé. Many of the songs were from These Days… of course, but, he also performed songs from Control System and other projects.
