Getty Image What started out as a continuation of Odd Future Carnival, has turned into one of the most interesting music festivals in the country. Camp Flog Gnaw, as curated by Tyler, The Creator staked that claim last year with a blowout event in Exposition Park in Los Angeles, but for the 2018 edition, he’s […]

Atlanta rapper 6lack is making his long-awaited return soon with a new album titled East Atlanta Love Letter. Taking to Instagram to make the announcement, the rapper posted a cryptic photo of a black envelope emblazoned with the message “My album is titled East Atlanta Love Letter. Love, Bear.” The 26-year-old made his debut two […]

Getty Image The Scoreboard is Uproxx Music’s bi-monthly look at who is putting points on the board and who is taking major Ls in the music world over the past couple weeks. Is Dave Grohl perfect? It seems that way sometimes. He can record 23-minute songs all by himself and generally be delightful, but while […]

OneThousand Projects, LLC / Uproxx Studios It’s safe to say that before Friday’s release of Life’s A Trip, 19-year-old Ohio rapper Trippie Redd was quite simply one of the most highly-touted rappers with the most eagerly-anticipated albums of the year. From his warmly-received surprise appearance at Coachella during SZA’s extended set to his appearance on […]

He spent most of last year defining his sound and refining his live show with crowd-pleasing performances at festivals around the world, including Montreux Jazz Festival in […]

Getty Image After a long build-up involving quasi-beef, numerous test singles, and plenty of Barb baiting, Queen has arrived — a week early, no less. After Nicki Minaj claimed that her long-awaited comeback album — one of many comebacks from rap’s upper echelon to release in 2018, including Kanye West, Drake, and Travis Scott — […]
