Rappers G-Eazy and Logic both killed it with their huge headlining tours to kick off 2016. G-Eazy’s “When It’s Dark Out Tour” was his biggest one yet, where the Bay Area rapper moved up from theaters to sold-out arena. Logic’s “The Incredible World Tour” was huge in its own right too, and he brought Dizzy Wright and DJ Rhetoric along for the ride.
Now the two have teamed up for “The Endless Summer Tour”, and they are bringing YG & Yo Gotti with them this summer. The tour will kick off June 28th in Dallas, TX and will hit stops in Phoenix, California, St. Louis, Nashville and many more, until the tour concludes July 26th in Brooklyn. Tickets for this mega event go on sale this Friday at LiveNation.com so don’t miss out!

Some may argue that 2014 has not been the best year for albums. However no matter which side of that argument you are on, we have compiled our list of the 30 albums of the year that you NEED to listen to. From the up-and-comers like Raury and Vince Staples to the pop icons like T. Swift, our list has everything you need from 2014’s year in music.
It is no secret that 2014 has been a tough year for music. Aside from Taylor Swift’s record breaking album, this year has been hit and miss on sales for the large part. Even with album sales aside, the quality has been lacking across many genres; one of the exceptions has been YG. On March 18th he dropped My Krazy Life which managed to unite critics and fans alike to not only say it was a high spot for 2014, but also an important album for gangster rap.
Looking to follow up on the success of My Krazy Life, YG put together a short film and a soundtrack to go along with it. It is a fairly bold move for any artist, let alone who only 9 months ago dropped his debut album. For the most part it works well and keeps the gangster vibe going. The soundtrack somehow manages to come off as even grittier and more gangster than My Krazy Life. When played in unison with the movie it begins to come together well. YG already gave the media what they (and his fans) wanted, this is strictly for the streets.
Earlier today the nominations were announced for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. As with many years, there were noticeable snubs that left critics and fans scratching their heads. While many used to praise the Grammys for their ability to reward quality music versus music that merely sells well, in recent years the committee’s selections seem especially poor (especially in the category of rap). Why the selections are not the best this year is for a different conversation, however we have compiled a list of the five biggest snubs of today’s nominations.
