Schoolboy Q is back with The Blank Face LP, a very solid album that fans have been expecting for a long time.
After two years off, the TDE bucket hat standard bearer returns with new single, "Groovy Tony."
A look at the latest loosies from "Compton" breakout star, Anderson .Paak
Max Bell carried the cross so you could play Candy Crush 2012’s Control System was an inspired and unforeseen coup. Ab-Soul brought inquisition and introspection, paranoia and conspiracy theories by the oz.

Max Bell once owned a bucket hat. It’s Friday. You may or may not have shit to do. But if you’re already reading this, then you should take a few and watch Schoolboy’s video for “Man of the Year.” “Man of the Year” is a party in the trees as much as it is on […]
