If you thought they were just hanging out by random, think again. Joey and Logic are currently on tour promoting their albums, All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ and Everybody, the same name of the tour. Although a fire freestyle between both artists, who wouldn’t love to see an actual collaboration flourish from them both?
The Everybody Tour began on July 7th in Salt Lake City and will continue until August 26th where it will conclude in Toronto. Feel free to check out the rest of the tour schedule here.

Baz Luhrmann, famous for 1996’s Romeo + Juliet, 2001’s Moulin Rouge, and 2013’s The Great Gatsby explained in a lengthy Facebook post why the series won’t be returning for a new season. Luhrmann confirmed the news when he expressed the show being “unlikely” to go back into production.
Although he poured a lot of love and energy into this project, he also reveals he had to be true to himself. “The simple truth is, I make movies. And the thing with movies is, that when you direct them, there can be nothing else in your life.”
There’s nothing Kung-Fu Kenny isn’t capable of of, as he slices up the competition again this week!
According to Interscope Records, Kendrick Lamar‘sDAMN. reached platinum status on Thursday (May 5th).
Interscope broke the news via their Twitter yesterday, while the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) declared Kendrick’s fourth effort as certified platinum less than a month (!!!) since its April 14th release. Lamar’s hot streak is still red-hot with astoundingly consecutive accomplishments.
Let’s recap all of Kendrick’s most recent accolades:
DAMN. is the first album of 2017 to go platinum
All 14 tracks appeared on the Billboard Hot 100
DAMN. sold more than 600,000 units the first week, beating Drake’s More Life opening weeks sales by 100,000 units
The videos for “Humble” and “DNA.” are carving out more success for Kendrick too.
K. Dot torched the Coachella festival as a headliner this year— so something tells me we have yet to get the best of him as he prepares for The DAMN. Tour. The tour will feature D.R.A.M. and Travis Scott. Check out the dates below. Tickets can be purchased here.

Genius and Spotify’s “Behind the Lyrics” explains song lyrics through the eyes of the artist.
Often times more than not, we find ourselves looking up lyrics to our favorite songs by our favorite artists. However; we may be unaware of the artists’ true intent behind a certain lyric. Genius, the media knowledge company that hosts a community of users annotating lyrics taps into Spotify for a huge collaboration. Their collaboration is in the form of an app called “Behind the Lyrics.”
With their “Behind the Lyrics” feature backed by both companies coming to Android, hip-hop fans can satisfy their need for knowledge behind any song. Originally introduced to iPhone iOS last year, the program was called “Fact Tracks” in which users where given artist anecdotes as the music streamed.
Alternative-R&B artists Khalid celebrates the Android expansion by sharing why he believes in Behind the Lyrics.
In an interview with HipHopDX, Khalid says, “You listen to a record, and you interpret it in your own way. But with this, you can see what the artist felt. ‘Maybe it means this.’ Music can mean anything you want.”
Spotify users can listen to the “Behind The Lyrics: Hip Hop” and “Today’s Top Hits” playlists to kick off the new Spotify and Genius collaboration.
