Kanye West Says He Produced Nas’ New Album From The Sunken Place

180215-Kanye-West-DX-Cindy-Barrymore-800x600

Kanye West continues putting his Twitter fingers to use with yet another announcement. On Sunday (April 22), the suddenly outspoken Hip Hop force announced the release date for Nas’ highly anticipated solo album with a simple tweet.
“Nas June 15th,” he wrote.
West also revealed he’s the producer behind not only Nas’ upcoming project but also “all the albums” he’s mentioned on social media over the past week, including his collaboration with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghost, Pusha T’s King Push and an album from G.O.O.D. Music artist Teyana Taylor.
“I’m hand producing all the albums I tweeted about,” he wrote. “Been chopping samples from the sunken place. Pusha May 25th My album June 1st me and Cudi June 8th and Teyana June 22nd and oh yeah.”
Hip Hop fans have been practically salivating at the thought of a new Nas album. After all, it’s been six years since the Queens legend delivered Life Is Good, his follow-up to 2008’s Untitled. 
But that doesn’t mean Nas hasn’t been busy. In addition to his duties at Mass Appeal — the media company he helped revive in 2013 — the Illmatic mastermind executive produced the Netflix series The Get Down and most recently, pumped out another Netflix series called Rapture.
In a 2016 interview with HipHopDX, he explained, “I’m in my zone. And that’s just what it is. I always stuck with my message and my way, and that might not work for anybody else. I wouldn’t suggest people follow me, but I feel like the ones that can see where I’m going and they see some good in it, and if I can make somebody happy with the moves and I inspire somebody over there, then I inspire a generation. I inspire one man or one woman; I inspire a generation so anybody that can see the moves that I’m doing,”
Last June, Nas told the New York Times his new album was coming that summer but if failed to materialize.
Evidently, the wait is (almost) over.

New Music Releases for 2018 & what we hear in 2018

GettyImages-521073344-920x584

As Christmas approaches, so album releases for this year are slowing down to the bare minimum of festive themed records, greatest hits collections and the odd big name record. Just because the music world is taking a little break doesn’t mean there’s nothing to get excited about, though. Next year already looks set to be embarrassingly good, quite frankly, with some major new releases already on the cards. Let us guide you through some of the biggest and most exciting albums confirmed, expected or just anticipated to be gifted to us in 2018.

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? Nothing has been confirmed at present.
What has he said about it? “It’s good gardening music or roofing music or, you know, back-alley stabbing music. I’m trying to think of some good activities that people haven’t written songs for yet.”

 

When’s it out? April 6
What’s on it? “Widescreen melancholia”, apparently.
What have they said about it? A statement accompanying the record’s announcement said: “The main themes of ‘Resistance is Futile’ are memory and loss; forgotten history; confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration. It’s obsessively melodic – in many ways referencing both the naive energy of ‘Generation Terrorists’ and the orchestral sweep of ‘Everything Must Go’.”

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? We’d expect massive single ‘Boys’ to be on there, but the tracklist is still under wraps.
What has she said about it? “I’m not going to touch the album until two months before it’s going to come out, because if I started working on it again I would probably write another four albums.”

When’s it out? January 19
What’s on it? The Britney Spears-referencing ‘Young And Menace’, and the electro-rock of ‘Champion’.
What have they said about it? “Sonically, we are sewing multiple eras of – both our own band and own influences – together in a way that is completely new to us through both the production and writing process.” – Pete Wentz

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? The band have yet to confirm any details, but they’ve been playing three new songs live of late – ‘Kindness Is The New Rock’n’Roll’, ‘When You Were Young’ and ‘Mental Head’.
What have they said about it? “It’s definitely like no record I’ve heard before. It doesn’t sound like anything that I can put my finger on – which is a good thing but it’s a scary thing as well.” – Harry Koisser

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? There are no precise details confirmed, but the band have said it will likely be seven or eight tracks, and clock in at 40 minutes.
What have they said about it? “In some respects, some of it is a bit straightforward. The MBV album that we did in 2013 feels more meandery and not as concise. This one is like if somebody took that and dropped some acid on it or created a dimensional clash or something. It’s more all over the place… The record I am making now is not so much about death and change as freedom of the soul.” – Kevin Shields

When’s it out? January 26
What’s on it? Collaborations with Bastille, AJ Tracey and Kaytranada, amongst others.
What has he said about it? “These songs feel like they’ll stand the test of time.”

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? “Quite a cast characters”, according to frontman Ezra Koenig.
What have they said about it? “I wanted to do something that at least has elements of spring time you know because life has to keep going.” – Ezra Koenig

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? Collaborations with The Weeknd and Travis Scott, plus singles ‘Cold Water’, ‘Believer’, ‘Run Up’ and ‘Know No Better’.
What have they said about it? Not a whole lot.

When’s it out? Early 2018
What’s on it? No details as yet, but expect a first single before 2017 is out.
What have they said about it? Not much, besides confirming it’s on the way.

Apple reveals 2017’s most popular apps, music, movies and more

Moana, Game of Thrones, Drake, Super Mario Run

Apple unveiled its charts ranking the most popular movies, TV shows, music, apps, books and podcasts in the U.S. for 2017 — with both new and familiar faces in the world of media and entertainment.

The No. 1 movie of the year on Apple’s iTunes was Disney’s “Moana,” followed by Disney/Lucafilm’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and Warner Bros. “Wonder Woman.”

In TV, perennial favorites HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” were the top three programs. New series charting in 2017 included HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” PBS’s “Victoria” and FX’s “The Americans.”

On Apple Music, Drake had the No. 1 album of the year with “More Life,” while Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” scored the most-downloaded song. Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” has already rocketed to No. 3 on the 2017 top album ranking since its Nov. 10 release.

Among free iPhone apps, Snap’s Bitmoji and Snapchat were the two top downloads for 2017, followed by YouTube, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Facebook, Google Maps, Netflix, Spotify and Uber. Nintendo’s “Super Mario Run” was the No. 1 free game for iPhone, followed by “8 Ball Pool” and “Snake VS Block.”

Top paid iPhone apps were Facetune and Tabs & Chords, while most-downloaded paid iPhone games were Ellen DeGeneres’ “Heads Up!”, Microsoft’s “Minecraft” and Ninja Kiwi’s “Bloons TD 5.”

Apple also announced the App Store editors’ picks of their favorite apps of 2017. Calm, which provides guided meditations and mindfulness exercises, was named iPhone app of the year and Splitter Critters won iPhone game honors. For iPad, Affinity Photo was named app of the year and The Witness was dubbed best game.

In podcasts, NPR’s “Fresh Air” remained the No. 1 most-downloaded show of the year, while daily news has become a popular category with new podcasts this year like the New York Times’ “The Daily and NPR’s “Up First” charting. True crime continued to drive listenership with top podcasts like ABC News’ “A Murder on Orchard Street,” the L.A. Times’ “Dirty John” and Serial Productions’ “S-Town.”

The top-downloaded iBooks in fiction were John Grisham’s “Camino Island” and Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” originally published in 1985 — newly popular thanks in part to Hulu’s Emmy-winning TV series adaptation. J.D. Vance’s working-class American family memoir “Hillbilly Elegy” was No. 1 on Apple’s nonfiction books chart, followed by Mark Manson’s “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.”
