Jacques Webster aka Travi$ Scott aka La Flame’s countdown for the prequel to his forthcoming album Rodeo is over, here is Days Before Rodeo. The free 12-track project features Rich Homie Quan, Big Sean, Young Thug, The 1975, Peewee Longway, Migos and even a short cameo from Grand Hustle bossman T.I. One undeniable consistency with Scott is his production, which is completely on point with this mixtape. Metro Boomin’ brings the heat on three tracks, up-and-comer WondaGurl makes an appearance, along with Vinylz, Lex Luger, Mike Dean, Southside and more. Being signed to both Kanye (as an in-house producer) and T.I., you can see where both their influences play a role, which if you’re Travi$ Scott, is a pretty nice place to be wedged between.
Welcome to Volume 82, hope y’all enjoyed the long weekend. I spent my time sitting lakeside in the Okanagan with a frosty beverage in hand and good music chirping in the background. I can’t necessarily put my finger on it, but this mix has to be one of my favourites in awhile. The diversity, the quality of music, the vibe – it all works way too well. Sango is vibrantly present, Pusha T let go of his new single, Los Campesinos! gave away arguably their best composition, Keep Shelly In Athens keeps rolling, fresh meat from The Weeknd, Ryan Leslie and much more can be found in the jump.
Good morning and welcome to Tuesday folks. This was one of those weeks for me that kind of just dragged on and on and on. So finally last night, I grabbed a couple beers and dove head first into some new music. We’ve got fresh material from Florence + The Machine, J. Cole, MGMT, Ab-Soul, Daughter, Clams Casino and more.
