Mike Posner and rapper Blackbear have left many scratching their heads with the weirdness (and we say that in the best way possible) of their new collaborative duo, Mansionz. Planking on red carpets, dying their hair green and overall taking on totally new wacky personalities, Mansionz is certainly fun and entertaining, and the music isn’t half bad either.
And today Posner and Blackbear have released the debut album for their new duo, and it boast features from G-Eazy, GOOD Music’s Cyhi The Prynce and even NBA legend, Dennis Rodman. Upon first listen, Mansionz’s self-titled debut is definitely worth checking out, whether you’re a fan of Posner, Blackbear the ’90s Bulls or all of the above.

Mike Posner and Blackbear have joined forces again for their collaborative duo “mansionz”. This time, Pos and Blackbear’s new track is titled, ‘Rich White Girls’, and is of course dedicated to all the rich girls out there. While we aren’t sure what is next for mansionz, ‘Rich White Girls’ is the second official song from the duo, and the followup to their debut single ‘stfu’.
Stream ‘Rich White Girls’ below, buy the track here, and stay tuned for more news from mansionz.
Mike Posner and Blackbear have teamed up for their new band, “mansionz”. A collaboration that the two teased earlier this year, the exciting duo have also dropped their first single, ‘stfu’.
Mansionz isn’t the only thing exciting for Posner this month either, as the ‘Cooler Than Me’ artist has also received a “Song of the Year” nomination for the 59th annual Grammy awards, for his comeback single ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’. But today, it is all about mansionz, as minutes ago Posner hosted a Facebook Live Q&A with fans, where he jokingly over-promoted the new collaboration, answering “mansionz” to practically every question, no matter what the topic. We don’t know what will come next for mansionz, whether an album, EP, tour or anything in between, so be sure to stay tuned.
Just minutes ago People Keep Talking rapper, Hoodie Allen, said his goodbyes to the Windy City after a memorable performance at The Riviera Theatre. Bringing his Happy Camper Tour to Chicago, IL tonight, fans in attendance saw a great opening performance from ‘Keep It Real’ rapper Kyle and an energic headlining set from Hoodie himself. Touring in support of his new LP,similarly titled Happy Camper, which released just last month and features both Kyle and Blackbear (who was not able to perform tonight), Hoodie has gathered quite the fan base due to his music’s broad appeal that transfers over to his live performances.
Up first for the night was Ventura native Kyle. Kyle’s set was full of crowd surfing (and we mean that in the most literal way possible), a lightsaber fight, a Pikachu cameo and wild energetic performances from some of his best songs from his latest album, Smyle, and his 2013 project, Beautiful Loser. There is nothing quite like a Kyle show, and with his DJ and right-hand-man SuperDuperBrick helping hype up the crowd, Kyle always delivers.
It was not long after Kyle’s set before it was time for Hoodie Allen to step on stage. The University of Pennsylvania graduate who worked at Google before quitting his job to pursue music, Hoodie Allen is smarter than your average rapper, and certainly smart enough to know that you may attain fans by making great music but you keep those same fans by putting on great performances. Not a moment went by where the energy levels were low, and the Chicago crowd sang along with Hoodie song-after-song. Highlights of his set included his memorable performances of ‘No Faith In Brooklyn’, ‘All About It’ and ‘Champagne and Pools’. Despite performing for a big theatre, Hoodie puts on an intimate performance that is still full of production value. As the confetti fell from the ceiling near the end of the night, The Rivieria Theatre had seen one of it’s best performances in quite sometime.
Check out our photos from tonight’s show below and see if Hoodie & friends are coming to a city near you on one of their remaining 18 stops on the Happy Camper Tour.
