Following a memorable 2015 performance with Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples returned to The Rave in Milwaukee, WI tonight, this time for a headlining set on Part II of his Circa ’06 Tour. And while his co-headlining tour with Earl was just a year ago, a lot has happened for the the Long Beach rapper since his last trip to Wisconsin. Staples’ released his debut album Summertime ’06, which was received well by critics and fans alike, he launched his acting career with a great and hilarious appearance in the 2015 film “Dope”, he was chosen by XXL for their 2015 Freshman Class, he has released a number of awesome visuals from his latest album, and of course he went on his biggest headlining tour to date.

And although a lot has changed for Staples in the past year, his great stage presence and ability to keep his energy levels high has not changed. In fact, even without Sweatshirt to complement him, his live performance has maybe even stepped up a level or two. Between songs, Staples even made time to salute International Women’s Day, dubbing Hilary Clinton as his prediction for our next president while joking about Bernie Sanders. “Run The Jewels 4, hosted by Bernie Sanders,” joked Staples. Even on a random Tuesday March night in Milwaukee, Vince Staples put on a show that his fans will not soon forget.

Check out our photos from Vince Staples’ performance tonight below, and be sure to check out the remaining dates for Staples’ Circa ’06 Tour Pt. II here.

From epic collaborations to Soundcloud released diss records, our list has a little bit of everything. A few veterans dominated our list this year, but a lot of emerging artists found spots high on our list as well.

The Top 30 Albums of 2015

The Top 30 Albums of 2015

Following an arguably weak year for albums, 2015 has seen a lot of great projects and many unexpected ones as well. While this year we saw the highly anticipated return of Adele, patient fans are still awaiting Frank Ocean’s sophomore album and Kanye West’s Swish. But where Frank and Kanye have left music fans hanging, new comers like Bryson Tiller, Alessia Cara, GoldLink, BOOTS, Halsey and more have put out some great albums to help kick off their relatively young careers. 2015 though was also a great year for some heavyweights, of course we’re referring to artists like Drake, Future, Kendrick Lamar and even pop superstars like One Direction and Justin Bieber. In just one day, November 13th, the music world saw more great releases than it did in a span of months in 2014. Cheers to hoping 2016 delivers as well as 2015 did!

The 20 Best Concert Tours of 2015

BY TER STAFF

Best Tours

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.

Hit the jump and check out our list of our 20 Favorite Concert Tours of 2015!

Childish Gambino and the lovely Jhene Aiko have paired up again, for another amazing record. This time teaming up with Long Beach rapper, Vince Staples, the trio combined talents for Ryan Coogler’s new film “Creed”, a sequel to the Rocky franchise. Co-written by Gambino’s friend and producer Ludwig Goransson, everything from the instrumentals to the lyrics and vocals for this new track, titled ‘Waiting For My Moment’, will give you chills. This is the first new track from Gambino and Aiko both, in quite some time, so stream it now and cross your fingers as the record has been submitted for the “Best Original Song” category of the Oscars. This may lead to an Oscar nomination (or more) to follow Bino’s first set of Grammy nominations from last year.

Stream ‘Waiting For My Moment’ below.

Chicago doesn’t only get its fair share of wind, but it can get quite a bit of rain as well. Fans of the Pitchfork Music Festival learned so first hand as stormy weather and a Chicago-area Tornado Watch prompted an evacuation of the festival, leaving fans of affected performers like Vince Staples (whose performance was cancelled) and Ariel Pink (whose performance was almost rained out) very disappointed at mother nature. Luckily as of 4:20 P.M., fans were allowed back into the festival grounds. Let’s hope that no more evacuations or cancellations are left to come, although Chicago is still under a tornado watch until 10:00 P.M.

Vince Staples went all out for his latest music video, in promotion of his debut album, Summertime ’06 (read our review here). In the new video, where Staples raps “I ain’t never ran from nothin’ but the police”, Vince Staples gets handcuffed, arrested, has his mug shot taken, and even gets beat up a little by the police. As one of the stand out tracks from his debut LP, the music video definitely does the track justice.

Watch Staples’ ‘Norf Norf’ video below.
