Pell Announces “Only in Your Dreams Tour” with Daye Jack

NOLA’s own Pell has unveiled his upcoming Only in Your Dreams tour to jumpstart 2016, and he’s bringing along his close friend, Daye Jack. The 30 date tour kicks off in February in Chicago and will travel around the states, wrapping up on the West Coast.

Pell is a multitalented rapper, singer, and producer who recently dropped his second full-length album, LIMBO. Pell flaunts a high vocal dexterity, allowing him to bounce between a variety of sounds that remain distinctly his own. Earlier this year, he also toured the world alongside Kehlani on her You Should Be Here tour.

Georgia’s Daye Jack has been writing for a while, but it wasn’t until last year that he made his debut with Hello World. The project combined the surges of aggression in his voice with his second passion—programming. While balancing his love for computers as a student at NYU, Jack continued to build momentum with the follow-up project, Soul Glitch, which further solidified his spot in the industry.

Tickets will go on-sale this Friday at 10AM local time on Pell’s website. For the die-hard fans, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the VIP packages, which include exclusive merch, meet-and-greets, and even an opportunity to take on Pell in a game of FIFA.

Mac Miller is Back, Releases “100 Grandkids” From Upcoming Album

Mac Miller has taken over the Internet tonight. Alongside his appearance on Dash Radio, Miller has confirmed his third LP, GO:OD AM, set to be released on September 18th. The album cover appropriately features a yawning Miller, who’s likely a bit exhausted after tearing through nine other albums along the way to crafting his major-label debut:

CLv11N7WwAEZih7

Late last year, Miller left his longtime home of Rostrum Records and made an effort to partner with Warner Bros. Records, which took the multi-alias artist and his label REMember under their wing. The 23-years-young and already hip-hop veteran unveiled the first single off his upcoming 17-track project, “100 Grandkids.” Another song title, “Break the Law,” can be found on the otherwise mysterious track-list. Make sure to check out the trippy-yet-refreshing visuals for “100 Grandkids” below.

But wait, there’s more!

Mac also announced a series of album release shows that kicks-off in his hometown of Pittsburg, hits major cities like Hollywood and New York, and even lands a few shows in Europe:

  • 9/20 – Pittsburg, PA – Stage AE
  • 9/22 – Hollywood, CA – The Fonda
  • 9/23 – San Francisco, CA – Regency Ballroom
  • 9/26 – Laval, Canada – Espace Montmorency
  • 9/27 – New York, NY – The Bowery Ballroom
  • 9/29 – London, UK – The Garage
  • 9/30 – Brussels, Belgium – VK Club
  • 10/1 – Paris, France – La Trabendo
  • 10/2 – Utrecht, Netherland – TivoliVredenburg Pandora
  • 10/4 – Berlin Germany – Bi Nuu
  • 10/31 – Morrison, CO – Red Rocks Ampitheatre
  • 11/1 – Bridgeview, IL – Toyota Park

If you don’t see your city here, don’t give up just yet; Miller clarified that these (relatively smaller) shows are not the official album tour, which will be announced later this month on August 17th. Tickets for the dates above go on-sale later today (time unknown), so be sure to keep your eyes peeled on his Twitter and on haveagoodam.com for updates.

Update: Tickets are now live for the album release parties.

You can pre-order GO:OD AM on iTunes and secure your physical copy here. For the diehard fans and hip-hop collectors (like myself), make sure to snag the “Breakfast Special Edition” of the project, which includes a handful of GO:OD AM-themed goodies, inclduing a serving of Miller-curated cereal, a matching cereal bowl, a physical and digital copy of the CD, an instant download of “100 Grandkids,” and a last surprise, all in a promising case that is yet to be revealed.

Welcome back, Mac, it’s nice to hear from you again.

Brooklyn MC Chelsea Reject released a new single today, “Based,” featuring production from Texas producer Romby and her as-always raw vocals as she continues to hone her voice and perfect her craft.

As she wraps up her New York show tonight at the Botanic Lab, Chelsea is set to resume her tour in Japan next week. Check out the dates and peep the single below.

Lil B & Chance the Rapper Drop Freestyle Mixtape (Stream + Free DL)

A match-made in heaven, the unorthodox tag-team unveiled their Free (The Based Freestyles) mixtape earlier today. The two have been taking the Internet by storm lately, with Lil B iconic as always and Chance announcing both his status as an expectant father and his upcoming Family Matters tour alongside fellow SaveMoney member Towkio, Cha Cha enthusiast D.R.A.M., and acclaimed Atlanta-based producer Metro Boomin. A few weeks ago, the two were found pictured together:

Made an album with Lil B

A post shared by Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) on

After confirmation of the rumors and some patience, we finally have the opportunity to hear what the Based God and Chance have whipped up. As the title suggests, the six-track compilation is built upon freestyles with words of wisdom sprinkled in-between their verses. The project samples a little bit of everything, from laid-back piano melodies to speaker-shatterers, and showcases the adept artists weaving in-and-out of their comfort zones.
