Mac Miller is standing tall for PA. With his consistency and sharp rhymes, it has to be getting hard for the haters that refuse to give this kid props. In antipation of his upcoming EP with Pharrell, Pink Slime, Mac lets two more joints go on his newly created SoundCloud page. One comes chopped and screwed, and the other is a cover song.

Wu members Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Method Man dropped a collaborative studio album Wu-Massacrein 2010, and with it, a comic book mini-series. While we were given a taste of the graphic literature, the entire comic book was never actualized. But recently, snippets of the defunct project, originally designed by Alex Haldi and illustrated by Chris Bachalo, have surfaced the internet, teasing Wu-Tang’s nerdiest fans of an epic comic series that never was.

Last night, Intel and MTV Iggy hosted a Shakespearian-themed music venture for the books. The free concert series The Music Experiment featured alternative indie artist Santigold as the main draw, but an added fantastical theme cultivated the full experience. The attendants were asked to dress themselves in ethereal “Mid-Summer Night”-inspired costumes and were driven to an undisclosed location.
Santigold then kicked off the whimsical evening by performing hit tracks off of her latest album Master of My Make-Believe. This thematic experience is one of the many unique concerts being hosted this fall. Each venue plans to experiment with new visual themes through music, art, and digital media.

Model Brittany Dailey, who we recently saw in The-Dream’s “Dope Chick,” looks to return as Esco’s leading lady in the new clip.
