New Music: Vinny Virgo feat. Key!

“Vinny Virgo – Wave feat. KEY!
(Prod. By Risky Beats)”

On his latest effort, Tampa, Florida native Vinny Virgo throws us in his ocean of sound and takes us for a ride on his “Wave” with ATL buzz artist KEY!. The now California transplant joined forces with Risky Beats to bring the noise for this anthem of sorts and when this one hits land you better believe it has all intentions of destroying everything in its path. With a long list of accomplishments on his back, Vinny’s taking this one right into a splash of releases and features, including collabs with some of the game’s brightest young talent. His still-to-be-titled EP is slated for release in the near future, but in the meantime, look for a video for this one to even sooner. Stay tuned for more info!

New Music: Crizzy Santaiga – My Producer

“Crizzy Santaiga – My Producer
(Prod By: Pilsbury)”

The relationship between a producer and artist is one of the most important keys to success when making music. The man behind the sound sets the tone and backdrop for the story told and Pilsbury Beats does exactly that on Crizzy Santaiga’s ode to his grind, “My Producer”. With his foot still in the door of the streets, the Toronto native paints a picture of his day to day as a hustler trying to make his way through the industry. This one lives as part of the “WSIE: Pre-Dope” series that will lead into the official release of the mixtape “W.S.I.E 3: Legendary”, set to be released late may 2015 being the last W.S.I.E mixtape out the trilogy series. Look for that exclusively on Fitted ENT

A$AP Rocky Covers ‘Complex'; Talks New Album, Iggy Azalea, Dissing Hood By Air & More

A$AP Rocky covers Complex for their April/May 2015 issue. Rocky sit down with Joe La Puma to talk up about his forthcoming album At.Long.Last.A$AP, dabbling with psychedelic drugs and staying out of the spotlight, dissing Hood By Air on “Multiply” and the heavy criticism of his ex-girlfriend Iggy Azalea.

Read more highlights from the interview below.

On Iggy Azalea: 

“It comes with the game. If [Iggy Azalea is] fake on something, somebody is going to call her bluff. That’s life. I’m not looking at it from a standpoint of “I used to be boning this chick’s back out.” I’m looking at it [as] “She’s just a person.” You can’t bluff. You gotta just be 100. That’s all I could really say. The question is: Was she not being 100 about something?”

On dissing Hood By Air:

“The people behind the brands didn’t acknowledge me as a pioneer because I didn’t sit down and create the name Hood by Air with Shayne [Oliver]. I’m taking full credit for that brand, for anyone knowing anything. Yes. I’m taking credit for that. I liked it when I was way younger. It had a little run here and there, but nobody ever really kicked it off. I knew Shayne on a personal note. I was like: “Yo, let’s bring this s*** back.” It took me years. Shayne’s stubborn. He’d give me a sweater one year, a T-shirt one year. It was like that. I have a lot of s*** from back in the day, and I’d say after “Peso”—because we have Hood by Air in the “Peso” video—by the time it hit 2012, 2013, he was ready. Because I was out there in the field. I just made that s*** look jiggy”.


On experimenting with psychedelics:

“Before it was all about the slowdown. Promethazine. Codeine flow. Now it’s like that, but on another level to the max. I’m going to be honest with you, man. When Yams died, psychedelic music healed me. Stuff like the The Mysterians, “96 Tears.” That’s all the stuff I love. I love classic rock. Take the Doors — those organs. It’s why I love Danger Mouse’s aesthetic.

I use them to my advantage. It’s not something I wanna f*** with all the time. That’s the beauty of it. You can dip and dab with the psychedelics, but that ain’t something I wanna keep doing. Nah.”


On his new album At.Long.Last.A$AP:

“He cues up the music, lights a blunt, and motions for me to take a seat on one of several massive Goyard chests scattered around the bedroom. One track features Miguel singing over a sample from Rod Stewart’s “In a Broken Dream.” Another track wields verses from Juicy J, Bun B, and previously unreleased bars from one of his musical heroes, the late Pimp C. One song has Rocky singing in a falsetto (in the room, he warbles along to the track). Another, “Holy Ghost,” is ostensibly a searing indictment about rappers being slaves to their titles, but Rocky’s more interested in how it’s tied up in conflicts about spirituality. “I didn’t want this to get confused [as] bashing religion,” he explains, and then raps a few bars from the track after it’s done playing:

“Who’s more important than your lord and savior/Won’t let the pearly gates up, it’s probably due to all your poor behavior/My mental got a couple tips to save ya/You can count it as my only favor/thank me later.” said A$AP Rocky
