自出生以来Prodigy一直承受着贫血症折磨，但这毫不妨碍他和搭档Havoc在东海岸创造着自己的Hip Hop神话。Mariah Carey, Nas, Justin Timberlake, Nick Minaj纷纷在社交媒体上发表悼词。
The rapper Prodigy, one half of the American hip-hop duo Mobb Deep, died on Tuesday at the age of 42.
The MC was found unconscious in Las Vegas, and while the cause of death remains unclear, the group’s publicist sent the following statement to the music website XXL:
“It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep. Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family’s privacy at this time.”
🕯 Rest in Power, Prodigy 🕯
这个曾经出过Kendrick Lamar, Future, Chance the Rapper, GoldLink的嘻哈届最前瞻杂志，近日公布了XXL Freshman 2017 Class. 其中不妨有我们熟悉的XXXTentacion和Playboi Carti.
🎤 完整名单 🎤
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie
It’s that time of year again for the reveal of the new XXL Freshman Class. This one is particularly special because it marks our 10th anniversary of the Freshman franchise. We launched the first issue in 2007 and the Freshman franchise has exploded into popularity over the past decade. And it comes together the same way as when it first started. We talk to everyone we possibly can—industry tastemakers, rappers, our friends, fellow hip-hop heads, the guy working at the bagel shop, whoever—to get their input on who they think should be picked for the class. Then we argue it out as a staff and narrow down the list.
This year’s Freshman Class includes the Bay Area’s Kamaiyah, The Bronx’s A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Philadelphia’s PnB Rock, Tokyo representer Madeintyo, Atlanta’s Playboi Carti, Portland’s Aminé, Atlanta’s Kap G, Ventura, Calif.’s Kyle; Houston’s Ugly God and 10th Spot winner XXXTentacion.
澳大利亚乐队Parcels Team请来Daft Punk助阵他们的新歌<Overnight>。同样的配方，熟悉的味道，这个节奏一听就是蠢朋在施法啦！
最近几年，在the Weeknd, Pharrell, Kanye West等众多大牌音乐人的专辑中都能见到Daft Punk的身影，而他们自己的上一张专辑已经是2013年的事儿了。
Parcels are a Berlin-based band from Byron Bay, Australia who write songs with slick grooves inspired by the hi-fi funk of 1970s AM radio while wearing the fringe and velour to match. They’re innocuous and fun, but not particularly groundbreaking, which is why it’s a bit of a surprise that their new single bears a seal of approval from one of the most in-demand and selective duos in dance music history.
“Overnight” is produced and co-written by none other than Daft Punk and shares a striking resemblance to the Nile Rodgers-assisted tracks from 2013’s Random Access Memories. The track is expertly produced, every note glossed-over and crystal clear, straight off the assembly line of Daft Punk’s summertime hit factory.
After months of slaying us with her maternity style, Beyoncé is finally a mommy of three! She welcomed her twins — during Gemini season, of course — with husband Jay Z.
Bey gave birth to a baby girl and a baby boy, Us Weekly reported. Their names have yet to be announced.
Fans first started speculation that the 35-year-old was in labor after a user told The Shade Room that, according to a friend who works at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Beyoncé arrived at the hospital on Tuesday, June 13 with her team and staff shut down the fifth floor so that she could give birth in private.
