It has been awhile since we have heard anything from the Manhatten-based MC. His last project, being The Red Balloon Project in February. Since then there hasn’t been much to report on the lifestyle rapper, until now. Today, Mars took to Twiiter and Instagram to release some bits of information and even some presumed cover art for an upcoming single, ‘Chemistry’.
He also opened up about working on his debut album entitled, Alone Together and the vast differences it encompasses compared to recording an EP or mixtape. Wanting to ensure his greatest artistic endeavor to date, he announced the delaying of his headling North American tour via Instagram which can be read below.
While the tour delay may be enough to dampen the spirits of even the most hardened of fans, the impending album should be enough to bolster their spirits for the time being. In the end, this bittersweet announcement will work out to everyone’s benefit because at the end of the day we are here for great music.
Today marked the first day of Chicago’s North Coast Music Festival in 2015. Today Coasties saw some awesome performances from a number of different genres. Rap fans saw sets from MMG’s Wale, SAVEMONEY’s Leather Corduroys (Joey Purp and Kami de Chukwu) and the talented Skizzy Mars. Bassheads danced their asses off to performances from The Glitch Mob and Knife Party. And the old school fans even left happy, as they saw a great set from the legendary Widespread Panic. Day one had something for everyone, and we made sure to catch it all!
