New Video: B.o.B. “Forgot”


As Wiz Khalifa’s Blacc Hollywood Big Secret Tour rolled into the Big Apple, the trees were rolled and Taylor Gang loyalists assembled at New York City’s Webster Hall. With his catalog of crowd-pleasers handling the majority of the work load, Wiz had one big secret for the fans. Right before curtain call, Killa Cam rushed the stage and gave the audience a quick performance of “I Really Mean It.”

It’s been a wild 4 days at sea with the Mad Decent crew and 2,500 rabid, booze filled fans. And, we’re surviving and having an incredible time in the process. We’re so used to being wrapped up in our rap world that anytime we can try something — is gonna try it. Last night, Diplo surprised the entire ship when he brought out his buddy and collaborator Skrillex for a surprise set as Jack U. Around 7:45 PM, the duo secretly popped up from the behind the stage and went right to work. The energy and atmosphere changing set definitely rocked the entire cruise ship.

It wouldn’t be a proper Mad Decent function with the man himself, RiFF RaFF. While Major Lazer cranked out the Dancehall infused EDM jams, Jody Highroller pulled up in a Versace life raft to debut his “CoCo” remix. The Conglomerate’s O.T. Genasis buzz single got a whole new makeover with RiFF RaFF spittin': “I’m in love with the Coco/got more hits than Sammy Sosa/bout to lose my composure.”

Travi$ Scott wasn’t the only one we caught setting the Mad Decent Boat Party on fire. During Major Lazer’s first set on Thursday night, ILOVEMAKONNEN joined Diplo and the crew onstage to perform “Wrist” and “Don’t Sell Molly No More.” As the special invited guest hit the stage, things went down a few BPMS,and OVO’s Atlanta faction turned the place out with his presence.

The first official Mad Decent Boat Party has been sailing from Miami to The Bahamas since Friday night and we’ve finally hit dry land. Over the last 48 hours everyone from Diplo and Major Lazer, Kill The Noise, Benny Benassi, and G.O.O.D. Music’s Travi$ Scott have kept us entertained while traveling on this floating circus. La Flame had one insane set — which was moved indoors due to some inclement weather weather but it only fueled Travi$ to go even crazier when the beat dropped to “Quintana.”

The 2014 Odd Future Carnival brought a lot of joy to the kids in the L.A. area. With Pharrell, Rick Ross, Mac Miller and ScHoolboy performing as special invited guests, the show looked pretty crazy from this footage, but there was also a dose of new music — courtesy of Skateboard P. Playing it straight from his smartphone, Pharrell previewed a new song that he produced for Gwen Stefani. It’s rumored to be her next release.

“I just wanna see yall faces when it come on,” Pharrell said to the crowd. “It’s called “Spark The Fire” — it’s about feminism.”

ScHoolboy Q and Mac Miller

Odd Future hosted their 3rd annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival at The Park at L.A. Coliseum in Los Angeles on Saturday. The all-day event featured all the rides, sites, and sounds of a busy carnival, along with a jam packed lineup of performances from Odd Future, Rick Ross, Pharrell, Mac Miller, Action Bronson, Freddie Gibbs, Vince Staples, The Internet, and surprise appearances from TDE’s ScHoolboy Q, and Diplo.

Hosted by The Alchemist and OF member Taco, the night was extra special for Tyler, the Creator. A die-hard fan of Pharrell Williams and N.E.R.D., Tyler was spotted having what appeared to be an emotional moment, as N.E.R.D. collective of Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay performed the song “Rockstar” on stage. “phone died so i have like no photos or anything but its sick its like one of those you had to be there,” Tyler tweeted when referencing the surprise appearance from N.E.R.D.
