18+ – Rebirth; Forthcoming Tour Dates



18+ is making quite a name for themselves….it admittedly wasn’t until today that we’ve heard of them, but that’s thanks to a number of big publications reporting on them. Specifically, we get to have a listen of ‘Rebirth’, which is jarring, minimal and explicit (the best way we can describe it, really) — you can check that out below.

In addition, 18+ will be on a mostly European tour beginning this month in L.A.; those dates and ticket links can be found below.

Thu 15 Jan Club Los Globos, Los Angeles, USA
Wed 28 Jan Corsica Studios, London, UK

The Game Announces ‘The Documentary’ 10th Anniversary Concert

Categories EVENTS, NORTH AMERICAPosted on


If you’re in L.A. and want to catch a glimpse of Hip-Hop history, The Game has announced that he’ll be celebrating the 10th anniversary of his big-label debut (and, debatably, the project that revises West Coast Rap single-handedly) The Documentary with a concert come 18th January at the Belasco Theater. He also says to expect big surprises (which shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody, unless it’s 50 Cent or G-Unit).

You can get your tickets for the big show here; in you’ve been following The Game this past year, you might also remember that the sequel to The Documentary was also set to be released on the same day. Hopefully, we’ll be getting that album soon as well.

PARTYNEXTDOOR Drops New EP & Announces World Tour



Big things are in motion for Drake’s recruit and OVO Sound artist PARTYNEXTDOOR — he recently blessed the world with four new tracks, a collective EP titled PNDCOLOURS, for the world to enjoy….you can certainly do that below. The project features assistance from Ca$h Out, Travi$ Scott and (on the production end) Cardo.

As to why he’s gifted his fans with new music, you can see the reason for that below as well: PARTYNEXTDOOR is also going back out on the road for his PND Live World Tour, which kicks off 29th January in Seattle and begins its European trek 24th March in Oslo (Londoners will get to see him the following month). Check out the full schedule for yourself (click the image to enlarge).

Given how his previous tour went, I would expect to see plenty of Drake for many of these stops (added incentive!).
