Skyzoo and Pete Rock Set to Release ‘Retropolitan’ Album

The combination of Skyzoo and Pete Rock will align for the new album Retropolitan. The effort is set to be produced by Pete Rock in its entirety and will be available to fans on September 20.

The new album will bring in Styles P, Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn, Elzhi and Raheem Devaughn.

“The idea for Retropolitan came from a feeling of necessity. The album is both a love letter and a wakeup call to the city of New York.  In an age where hype dominates reality, FOMO supersedes integrity and gentrification has supplanted tradition, this album is screaming for NYC to wake TF up—even as Pete & myself thank the city for all it’s done for us at the same time,” Skyzoo said about the announcement. “Wake up from accepting your culture being stripped away from you.  Wake up from believing that the people who aren’t cut from the cloth you created know your fabric better than you.  Wake up from denying the change that’s taken place within you, told to be for your betterment, when it’s solely for theirs; and at your expense and detriment.  Wake up from ignoring the identity you once had, the community you once built, the strength you once manifested, all to take on that of one you assumed would expand your reach, when all it’s doing is spreading you comically thin.”

“Dear New York, all five boroughs of you, thank you for all you’ve done.  You’re the greatest.  Now sit back, listen and wake TF up”

The first track was premiered on Billboard and titled “It’s All Good.”

Kid Cudi Preps For a New Album & Netflix Animated Series Both Named ‘Entergalactic’

The acting bug has a firm grip on Kid Cudi, and it doesn’t seem like it’ll be going away anytime soon. Not only has the Cleveland-bred rap star announced that a new album is on the way, he’s also already given the project a name and confirmed that a companion TV show in partnership with Netflix will also be part of the LP rollout.



Entergalactic is the title for both the upcoming album and the show, which is being described as an “adult animated series.” The latter will see Cudi working alongside Kenya Barris (Black-ish), who will serve as one of the series’ executive producers. Also in the EP role will be Ian Edelman, who worked with Cudi on HBO’s cult classic How to Make It in America, and the Demon Slayin’ MC himself will write, executive produce and of course star as the main character.

As The Hollywood Reporter describes it, Entergalactic will showcase music from the new album of the same name, and the plot focuses on a young man (more than likely played by Kid Cudi) on his journey to discover love. This will be the third acting role so far on Mr. Mescudi’s plate, following the Bill & Ted: Face the Music “threequel” that was announced last month and a return to HBO for a Luca Guadagnino-led series titled We Are Who We Are. Let’s go, future EGOT!

Entergalactic‘, the new album and Netflix series by Kid Cudi, are both expected to debut in 2020. Oh, and in case you were wondering:

Listen: Lil Nas X Aims For Sophomore Success With New Single “Panini”

Lil Nas X is gearing up to drop his debut LP 7 at midnight, but for now he’s preempting the highly-anticipated release with a new single titled “Panini.”


View this post on Instagram

WHO READY FOR TONIGHT??? 🌏🌍🤩

A post shared by Lil Nas X (@lilnasx) on


Premiered earlier today on Apple Music via Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1, the “Old Town Road” follow-up switches things up from the urban country sound Lil Nas X has been coasting at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with to a more on-trend emo trap vibe. “Panini” actually interpolates a sample of “In Bloom” by Nirvana, which doubles down on the alternative mood of the song and even gives Kurt Cobain some postmortem writing creds as well. For those that feel like X is abandoning his country steez, it actually looks like he’ll be experimenting with a range of sounds heard on Top 40 radio based off the rock-tinged Travis Barker collab “F9mily (You & Me)” previewed in his IG post above. The new single is produced by Take A Daytrip, and sees the viral multi-genre sensation referencing the classic Cartoon Network series Chowder and the possessive relationship that “pink cabbit” Panini has over the titular character.

Listen to “Panini” by Lil Nas X below, and keep a lookout for the debut of his 7 EP at midnight (June 21) via Columbia Records. Let us know if you’re feeling the track by sounding off on Facebook and Twitter!

Tyler, The Creator Lands His First Number 1 Album With ‘IGOR’

According to reporting from The New York Times IGOR, Tyler the Creator’s latest album, topped DJ Khaled’s Father of Asahd LP for the coveted no. 1 spot in this week’s Billboard 200 albums chart. Surprisingly or not, this is Tyler the Creator’s first no. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart and his fifth album overall. IGOR had 165,000 equivalent album units to Khaled’s 136,000. Khaled actually edged out Tyler in streaming numbers (123.2 million versus 122.9), but Tyler made up for it in the number of copies sold (74,000 to 34,000).

Both albums’ physical numbers were helped by merchandise bundles Tyler sold the full album alongside t-shirts, stickers, and political signage, while Khaled bundled his with an energy drink.

The rapper himself also achieves a historical accomplishment as the first solo rapper to debut at No. 1 with a self-produced and self-arranged record.

Responding in a pair of tweets, “honestly didnt think people would enjoy this album based on alot of thing, so again, thank you, i mean it. alot alot of effort put into this. not that that should dictate if people like it or not but im happy all that time and attention paid off.”

Other notable albums to appear on the chart were the National’s new album I Am Easy To Find debuted this week at #5, right behind Billie Eilish’s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and Khalid’s Free Spirit.

Check out the video below of Tyler receiving the news of his first number one album:

WATCH: Skepta – “Bullet From A Gun” (Music Video)

Fans of UK’s grime king Skepta have been patiently waiting for the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed 2016 album Konnichiwa, and now the three-year wait is officially over as the new project arrives in just a matter of days. To spearhead the promo of his fifth LP, officially titled Ignorance Is Bliss, Skepta unveils the visuals for the album’s first single “Bullet From A Gun.”



The Tottenham MC takes directing into his own hands for this music video, with co-credits going to British filmmaker Duncan Loudon. Camden Town Tube Station makes for the setting, creating a dark underground vibe that only gets more ominous as the nearly three-minute clip commences forward. From a random baby carriage to passing pedestrians, and even a debut of his possible upcoming Nike ShoxTL collab, there’s a lot going on in the foreground that adds to the overall tale. The main focal point happens towards the 2:00 mark, where cops are seen getting extra aggressive with two bystanders. The theme is pretty clear, but it’s up to the viewer to ultimately define the film as to what it all really means.

Watch the music video for “Bullet From A Gun” above, and look out for the Ignorance Is Bliss album by Skepta to drop this Friday (May 31) on all streaming platforms.

WATCH: Casanova – “Block Me” (Music Video)

Since dropping his Free At Last EP back in February, Casanova has been on a steadfast grind to get these fire music videos off. While he took us to Lagos for “2AM” alongside Tory Lanez and Davido earlier this year, then headed in an X-rated route with the Pornhub-premiered “Splash” visuals that arrived last month, the latest brings us a cautionary tale of what happens when three things just don’t quite mix: your relationship, a mansion filled with vixens that are down for whatever, and, unfortunately, your social media account.

The new video for “Block Me” shows Cas figuring out how to handle the situation when your sidechick decides to scroll through your social media when all you’re trying to do is just turn up with the squad and a few bad biddies. As you might guess, the end result isn’t particularly the dream scenario for our Brooklyn-bred homie, but that’s what replacements are for as the Roc Nation emcee does in the end without breaking a sweat. Utilizing that block button will for sure give you a temporary form of relief, but we ultimately see that the real way to get over someone is by simply throwing a huge house party to get your mind off things. Well, something like that.

Watch Casanova’s new music video for “Block Me” above, and then take a look below to peep the short “Making Of” segment posted on his IG:

Leaving no one out, from Kanye to Young Buck to Cardi B, Murda’s Rap-Up is an entertaining way to remember what went down in 2018.
