Vince Staples Freestyles on Hot 97 w/ Tyler The Creator, Drops New Music

Those West coast boys can really rap

Vince Staples will be releasing his new album, Summertime ’06, on June 30, and in preparation, he released a new song, “Get Paid”–which you can listen to below–and stopped by Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg‘s Real Late show to chat and drop some serious bars. He would later be joined by Tyler, The Creator, who brought his hilarious personality to the studio and ended up freestyling over some classic Lil’ Kim. That wasn’t before Vince Staples took Outkast‘s “ATLiens” to task, seemingly coming up with bars in his head while he waited for his turn on the beat.

Check the freestyle above, and Vince’s new song and the interview below.

Travi$ Scott Nearly Incited a Riot at Summer Jam’s Festival Stage


We’re not even inside Metlife Stadium yet, and the madness has begun

Travis Scott was the final act on Hot 97’s Summer Jam Festival Stage, and it was well worth the wait. Shortly after Joey Bada$$ performed an impressive set of his own, the G.O.O.D Music prince walked out on stage, donning a yellow jacket that he would quickly dash to the side, and a feverish energy. So feverish in fact, he wanted to audience to feel it as well.

Before he began to perform his first song, Scott instructed the crowd to jump over the barricades that separated the crowd from the photo pit and stage. Members of security earnestly tried to prevent a few brave souls from jumping over, and successfully thwarted early efforts, but less than 5 minutes later, the security team had been overtaken. Above is a short clip of the madness.

Here’s the Hot 97 Summer Jam 2015 Live Stream…on TIDAL

If you want to see Kendrick, Meek Mill and more, you’re going to need to sign up, now

HOt 97 has been live streaming Summer Jam for several years, but this year, things will be a little different. TIDAL, the media streaming service that Jay Z and his infamous band of superstars relaunched in March, will be exclusively streaming the world’s most famous (and infamous) Hip-Hop concert. In past years, we have seen public streams on YouTube and UStream, but for the first time, a TIDAL membership is required to view the show this year.

The good news is, for those that have yet to indulge, TIDAL does have a 7-day free trial period–click here to get started with that–which will allow first-time users to see the show for free (and just not renew their subscription next Sunday), but for others, it’s time to pony up. Or you’ll have to get updates from the ‘gram.
