Lil Wayne – “CoCo” Video

By Tom Breihan / March 18, 2015
Our last-ever Mixtape Of The Week column, before we switched over to the Week In Rap, was dedicated to Lil Wayne's Sorry 4 The Wait 2.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Get SXSW Attendees To Rave About Vlad & The Putins, Cheez Wiz Khalifa, DJ Cialis, & Other Made-Up Acts

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 18, 2015
Every music festival emits an unnecessary air of pretension, but SXSW is probably the least easily mocked.

For a new Record Store Day single, the former Smiths axe wizard Johnny Marr has recorded a version of Depeche Mode's 1993 single "I Feel You."

Watch Matthew E. White Strip Things Down On Letterman

By Tom Breihan / March 17, 2015
Richmond singer-songwriter Matthew E. White's greatest strength is his gift for piling horns and strings on top of each other into a big, soft, luxurious wall of sound. Playing live, he can't call on his pocket orchestra of studio musicians, and so he needs to switch things up. Last night on Letterman, he made the… More »
