Though not as inspiring as Kendrick Lamar‘s “Alright,” Ariana Grande‘s new song “Be Alright” is a pretty smooth cut. Grande previously blew everyone away after debuting it on Saturday Night Live, but now we’ve finally got a studio-quality version that we can jam to. Listen below.
With music’s biggest talents currently holding court at SXSW, Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz took the stage at Samsung’s Galaxy Life Fest. The two rocked while performing “Gotta Lotta,” which aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night. Wayne was just as animated as usual as he hopped around the stage, and 2 Chainz kept his composure while spitting his verse.
Domo Genesis is back with a new track featuring some heavy hitters. Genesis recruits Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Odd Future brethren Tyler, the Creator for “GO (GAS).” Even though it’s Domo’s track, the song’s got a chilled out Khalifa vibe with an equally mellow beat.
One fourth of the Slaughterhouse team, Royce 5’9″, is gearing up for his solo release Layers, which is due out April 15. In preparation, he recently dropped off the single “Dead President Heads.” In typical Royce fashion, he delivers bars upon bars.
Harlem’s own Bodega Bamz is back with another banger. Instead of hitting up NYC’s best for beats, he hooks up with Hudson Mohawke this time around. Mohawk laid a smooth EDM-inspired beat on “Ghost” that Bamz still glides over with his braggadocio stories about the life and times of Spanish Harlem.
Inspired by the city of angels, MMG‘s own Rockie Fresh released an EP entitled “The Night I Went To… Los Angeles.” The four-song offering comes in celebration of his upcoming shows in LA, Chicago, and NYC. If he continues to drop an EP for each city he hits, fans will have a bunch of new Rockie to listen to.
