Listen to Lana Del Ray’s Latest Song: Does She Deserve Her Hype?


Lana Del Rey debuts “Summertime Sadness” live at the Bowery Ballroom

Lana Del Rey brought her debut tour to NYC’s Bowery Ballroom this past Monday night after performing around Europe for the last month. We couldn’t make it out but the reviews varies, which is expected with such a polarizing figure, but what most seem to agree that she has some type of mesmerizing  quality on stage. Check out a clip Lana performing a new song from her upcoming debut album above and some reviews below, and let us know what you think?

Our friend Noah, EIC of Complex, tweeted from the show:

Lana sounds BETTER live than on the record. And that says a lot…This is special. Moving, even…So yeah, suffice to say, I strongly advocate seeing [Lana Del Rey] live. Shouts to [Emile Haynie]’s sonic wizardry contributions, too. Sounds great

Check out more video and reviews…

Lana Del Rey – Million Dollar Man


Lana Del Rey – Without You

Vh1:

Del Rey is an artist with undeniable vocal chops, but one that is also clearly a character through and through; this, however, is not a bad thing!…Her skills as a performer will continue to improve as she gets more live shows under her belt, but regardless of her current on-stage acumen, she’s got at least one weapon besides her voice in her arsenal that she can rely on for the forseeable future: She’s definitely got some killer songs in her repertoire.

Rolling Stone:

…she looks like Ann Margret crossed with a porn star and sounds like a loungy cabaret act with just a touch of hip-hop attitude…it’s too bad that Del Rey was shaky and inconsistent at her show last night at Manhattan’s Bowery Ballroom…She only played nine songs, but managed to apologize for nearly all of them…her transitions from husky, come-hither sexuality to bratty, girlish petulance could be rather jarring.

Spinner:

Overall, the show was mesmerizing, brash and a bit bewildering, as Del Rey stood onstage in a glowing white dress, wavy hair and thick eyelashes…All in all, Lana Del Rey still seems like a work in progress. But, there’s potential; she’s not nearly as clueless as her critics make her out to be.

Pitchfork:

There was some stalling before the first song began, and when an audience member urged her to get started, she yelled: “It’s coming, bitch. Just wait,” and took a swig of her Diet Coke. Later, when a fan asked her if her name is pronounced “Lah-na” or “Lan-na”, she shot back: “It’s ‘Lah-na.’ You’ve been telling me you love me, and you don’t even know my name.” And whenever she sensed a swell of crowd excitement, she reflexively stuck out her tongue or mouthed, “Shut up.” She seemed self-conscious receiving praise, attempting to mask it with awkward, knee-jerk dismissals.

DMX Statement On Latest Arrest

Yesterday, we found out that Earl once again was arrested for speeding, reckless driving, and driving with a suspended license. Today his publicist Domenick Nati, has issued this statement to The Source.

“This situation is being blown way out of proportion. DMX was in jail for approximately 1 hour. Also the report given by Sgt. Rudy Lujan of AHP, was exaggerated according to the people present. DMX does admit to driving at 85mph but not nearly at the speed that was suggested in the report. In response to the constant harassment by Arizona law enforcement, DMX says this, “God brought me to Phoenix and I’m not going to let no man run me and my family from our home!” Despite being under a microscope, DMX is doing everything he can to put his past criminal charges behind him and focus on music. – Domenick Nati”

A Closer Look At The “Otis” Video, Plus The Latest ‘The Throne’ Coverage


(Kanye and Jay-Z sharing a moment in the “Otis” video)

Last night, the “Otis” premiere went down like another event in itself. Pretty much everyone I know was waiting by MTV and the blog homies were posting at exactly 8:56PM. Simplistic yet exactly everything it should have been (in my opinion). I feel like it’s almost like a “f*ck you” to the people hating on the project. Clearly, these millionaires were just having with this record and without all the baller cliches that say a “Big Pimpin” had, we still know “they got it like that.” 1 Maybach, 2 rappers, minimal jewelry, couple models chicks and a American flag is all it took paint the picture of… rapper opulence.

As I was combing through our archives, I noticed I did a full review and WTT listening session recap that was never published. Here’s what I thought about the project after 1 listen. Maybe I share what I think now soon… Check out my initial thoughts on the project below.

Check out: Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Otis” Video…and Miss Info’s ‘Watch The Throne’ Wrap-up

88-Keys opens up to Billboard on how the Frank Ocean-assisted Watch the Throne cut, “No Church in the Wild,” came to fruition.

Although the duo go back some 10 years, 88-Keys production on the album was unplanned and came to be after a studio visit. Apparently, Kanye casually asked, “You got any beats on you?” which led to the producer playing some tracks off Soundcloud. Kanye made some suggestions to edit the beat, but it eventually became “No Church in the Wild.” Ironically, 88-Keys didn’t even hear the finished product until the planetarium listening Mikey & Miss Info were in attendance for. He did however hear Kanye say the track was “just what they needed for the album — a different sound.”

Rza on working on Watch The Throne

“I’m really honored to be a part of the project,” RZA, who produced the grimy “New Day,” tells Rolling Stone. “These two are obviously very capable in their own right, so to include me in this classic project is a testament of how much respect we share for one another.”

“Kanye asked me to send tracks while they were in Australia,” says the Wu-Tang Clan master. “I just thought I would send some shit that would be rugged. I know they can find the poppy, hip-hop places, but I wanted to send them some real edgy shit. Apparently they thought they were great – Kanye said, ‘Send some more of that Wu shit!’”

“In the past, when Jay-Z did Best of Both Worlds with R. Kelly, I thought it was a great album but the campaign went south because of personalities,” he says. “With this project, it’s the best of many worlds. These two guys have a great chemistry and a great relationship. I’m excited.”
