donald glover spiderman

In this new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony Pictures give us our first look at Donald Glover in action. The two-and-a-half-minute teaser mostly serves as a showcase of all the new Spidey technology on offer (including an emergency parachute), and it’s still unclear what Glover’s role is exactly, but here we see him offering some words of wisdom to young Peter Parker: “You gotta get better at this part of the job.” Let’s hope Glover gets more screen time in the actual movie, which hits theaters on July 7.

Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t Donald Glover’s only foray into the superhero world; he’s set to turn Marvel’s Deadpool into an adult animated comedy series for FXX alongside his brother and Atlanta co-creator, Stephen.

The Weeknd kickstarts his new XO SoundCloud channel (which is reserved for “rarities, remixes, and other unreleased material”) in fashion by dropping two massive treats for his fans today. First up, Abel re-ups “Tell Your Friends” with an extended remix, which compiles verses from Kanye West, Drake, Nas, Ghostface Killah, Belly and Young Braised from various freestyles and performances (Nas’ verse comes from his Met Gala set, for example). On top of that, there’s “Secret Passionfruit,” a mashup of The Weeknd’s “Secrets” and Drake’s “Passionfruit,” which premiered on OVO Sound Radio earlier this year.

Listen to both tracks below and be sure to follow XO on SoundCloud for more goodies.

vic mensa pharrell

Still no word on when his long-awaited album Traffic is set to arrive, but best believe Vic Mensa is sitting on a ton of music right now. During a performance at Wesleyan University’s Spring Fling in Middletown, Connecticut earlier this month, the Chicago rapper gave fans a preview of one heater he’s got in the stash, which features (and by the sounds of it, was also produced by) Pharrell. Given his knack for blurring the lines between rap and rock, it was only a matter of time before Vic linked up with Skateboard P.

Let’s hope Roc Nation green lights Traffic sooner than lighter.

After emerging as one of New York’s ones-to-watch on 2015’s 5 O’Clock Shadow LP, Jimi Tents returns with his new album, I Can’t Go Home. Inspired by seeing his childhood home foreclosed, the project highlights the harsh realities of gentrification in his backyard of East New York. “I really wanted to touch on where I’m from, and highlight the fact that gentrification is fucking up a lot of peoples’ lives,” Jimi tells The FADER. “I guess there’s some good coming from it, like safer neighborhoods and better quality of life for some, but for the people who are from there, born and raised there, it’s really an uncomfortable space to be in.”

I Can’t Go Home includes the previously released “Rick Rubin,” plus new collaborations with Saba, Ro James and saidbysed. Stream the album in full below and grab your copy on iTunes.

Sometimes all you need is dope rhymes and a grimy drum loop, and that’s exactly what DJ Green Lantern serves up on his latest track. With Shady’s old friend Royce Da 5’9″ and Shady Records’ newest signee Conway bringing the bars, “ILL” is exactly as advertised.
