Kendrick Lamar appears on Arsenio
Last night Kendrick Lamar sat down for an interview on the newly minted Arsenio Hall Show. During the discuss, Lamar talked with Hall about witnessing Dr. Dre & 2Pac film the "California Love" video when he was a kid. The Compton MC also tore through a hellatious rendition of "m.A.A.d city" and teamed up with Black Hippy crewmate Schoolboy Q to gallivant during earworm "Collard Greens" from his forthcoming Oxymoron LP. Q isn't going to pass up the chance to rock a bucket hat and Kendrick kicks back until it's to deliver his bilingual blast. "Chidi ching ching".
Le1f releases Tree House mixtape
After two release hiccups, Le1f has followed up the industrial judder of January's Fly Zone with the equally constricting Tree House. Featuring 15 tracks and production from The-Drum, Falty DL, and others, the tape suffocates with stereo rattling numbers "Plush" and the appropriately titled "Swerve". The tape demands repeat listens if for no other reason than the hypnosis it lulls you into during first engagement. You can download it here and listen to the oppressive burble of "Cane Sugar" below.
Le1f has also announced the "Tree House Party Tour" which will feature Antwon and Lakutis and crisscross the U.S. for the next month. Tour dates can also be found below.
