2015 saw a lot of great concert tours, from J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive Tour with Big Sean, YG and Jeremih to Taylor Swift’s huge 1989 World Tour. Some tours sold out stadiums and arenas, selling out the entire tour before it even begun, and some tours were in small intimate venues, either strategically or because simple supply and demand. Some had stacked lineups top to bottom and some introduced us to a lot of great new artists. Festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Coachella were bigger than ever this year, but that didn’t stop your favorite artists from building up some great shows of their own.

Earlier today, Odd Future’s Mike G (one of the group’s most underrated members) shared a old collaboration with fellow OFWGKTA member Earl Sweatshirt. What’s most interesting about this record, is that the track dates back all the way to 2009. You can noticeably tell the difference in the young rappers’ voices but the track, titled ‘FUK IT’, is still fire. We wonder what other Odd Future unreleased tracks are out there.

A new surprise album from Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt wasn’t enough for you? Well don’t worry because Earl has given fans even more music, this time by dropping a 10-minute long track/EP, titled ‘solace’. Sweatshirt spoke about solace in an interview with NPR and said the project was for his mother. In the YouTube description, Earl describes the track/EP as “music from when i hit the bottom and found something.” Do yourself a favor and check it out now!
Listen to ‘solace’ below and check out our recent photos from Earl’s “Not Redy 2 Leave” tour.
At a concert in Detroit, MI, Earl Sweatshirt performed a brand new track. Despite just dropping an album over a week ago, he seems to have more material in the vault according to an interview he did with NPR and this song. Considering the subject matter of the new song and him saying Solace (the album he’s currently sitting on according to the NPR interview) is “for his mom”, it’s doubtful this is on that album. Listen to the track below via a fan’s video on YouTube:
Last night we went to Earl Sweatshirt’s “Not Redy 2 Leave” Tour with Vince Staples and Remy Banks, at The Rave in Milwaukee. In addition to capturing some great photos of the energetic night, we had to get some great footage of the rappers as well. Watch our Milwaukee “Not Redy 2 Leave” tour recap video below.

Last night Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt brought the “Not Redy 2 Leave” Tour to The Rave in Milwaukee, WI. Kicking things off for the Wisconsin crowd was the talented Queens native, rapper Remy Banks. Performing a number of songs from his growing collection of tracks, the highlight of Banks’ set came with the drop of his new Left Brain produced and ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ inspired single, ‘.rem’. Following Banks’ energetic performance was Vince Staples, easily one of the most talented young lyricists who made quite a buzz last year with his Hell Can WaitEP. And soon after the Long Beach rapper’s performance of his ‘Blue Suede’ track, Staples brought out the man of the night, OFWKTA’s Earl Sweatshirt.
These are the highlights of this past week in music! Hopefully you can bump these tracks on your way to work to brighten up your Monday mornings, and to stay up-to-date on today’s music.
