YG Previews ‘Blame It on the Streets’ Short Film

YG

On December 15, YG will release his short film and soundtrack Blame It on the Streets. The Bompton rapper tells the story behind the music in the gritty and violent visuals, which offer a glimpse into a day in YG’s “krazy” life growing up in Compton.

He co-wrote the script with Lucky Rodgers and stars in it alongside Rick Gonzales and Jade Yorker.

“The short film is basically the life behind a couple of records off My Krazy Life,” YG told The FADER. “When you listen to that album it feels like you are watching a movie, so I wrote this film to give people a chance to see what my ‘krazy’ life is all about.”

The nine-song soundtrack features collaborations with DJ Mustard, DJ Quik, Nipsey Hussle, Mack 10, and more.

Watch the trailer and see the tracklisting below.

Video: Mark Ronson f/ Bruno Mars – ‘Uptown Funk’

Uptown Funk

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars take you to funkytown in the throwback video for “Uptown Funk,” the first single from Ronson’s fourth album Uptown Special. The duo behind “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Gorilla” show out in the streets in their dapper ’80s attire. Looking smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy, Bruno and his Hooligans bust out their best moves before hitting the salon to get a fresh perm.

Uptown Special, which arrives January 27, was written and produced with Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Drake) over 18 months in London, Memphis, L.A., and New York.

“Before smart phones, bottle service, and smoking bans, people came to the club, found their spot, and stayed all night, absorbed in the music,” said Ronson. “With Uptown Special I set out to capture the feeling I remember from those New York nights.”

Tune in to “SNL” this weekend to see them perform the song live.

Kendrick Lamar Performs on ‘SNL’

Kendrick Lamar

All hail King Kendrick. The Compton rapper made an epic return to “SNL” this weekend and proved why he’s one of hip-hop’s best with an exhilarating performance of his single “i.”

With his hair half braided, black contacts in his eyes, and sweat dripping down his face, Kendrick tore through the Isley Brothers-sampled song, dedicating it to his homies in the pen. He even recreated some of his famous dance moves from the music video.

For his second performance of the night, he brought out his TDE labelmate Jay Rock to perform “Pay for It.” They traded chilling verses against harsh white lights, while Canadian singer Chantal Kreviazuk played piano and sang the hook.

He also appeared in a funny skit for a celebrity duets record called Young Tarts & Old Farts, which paired old timers with new artists. The Kendrick rapped alongside a fake Barry Manilow, while other pairings included Lionel Richie and Ariana Grande, Diana Ross and Macklemore, James Taylor and 2 Chainz, and Elton John and Blue Ivy.

Get out your seat in praise of K-Dot.
