Despite all the glitz and glamour, television talent shows are no guaranteed ticket to fame. Especially not since the Internet helped to give pure, honest artistry as big of a platform as the machine’s manufactured crap. Just ask Kehlani, who last year fulfilled her transformation from America’s Got Talent finalist to one of the best new voices — and most colorful personalities — in music.

Stay tuned for more music in the coming weeks.

It’s 6:25pm EST and the entire Rap Internet is practically glued to OVO Sound on Beats1 as I type this. Drizzy Drake is playing disc jockey as he plays some of his favorite songs and explains how his original intention was just to hit Atlanta and make a few songs with Future, but his ATL friend’s energy was so magnetic that they ended up doing a whole mixtape. “It’s a little soundtrack for the people that need it right now,” says Drake.

The clock just hit 6:28pm and the tape just started playing after a quick intro from October’s very own. I’m not going to lie I’m still tripping on that fact that a peer of mine named this mixtape. Yes, Ernest Baker came up with the tape’s name based off a phone call he had with Drizzy when he hit Ernest to let him know about the project. Wow.

Miami recording artist Major Myjah serves up the stream to his upcoming Trouble EP exclusively with Missinfo.TV today. The crooner has been working on this project for the last year and combines his own unique blend of R&B, hip-hop and pop. With influences from Reggae and Dancehall, Major’s voice can’t be compared with any of his contemporaries.

On the 8-track project, the emotions and vibes range from sultry ballads, midtempo grooves and of course songs that can destroy radio. Records like “Chemical Kids” showcase Major’s incredible voice and songwriting abilities — while records like “Disposable” and “Ground Zero” are perfect for cruising around while getting lost in your own thoughts.

Trouble officially hits retailers on Friday (Aug 28).

With all the sneak dissing going on in hip-hop, Capone-N-Noreaga are back to give these rap cats some serious Lessons from the gods. As an added bonus to the duo’s newly released album, NORE hit us off with a solo joint where he addresses all the cats bumpin’ their gums with no action to follow. And to that one dude talking’ ish — pay attention.

“We too grown to be going back and forth” — NORE

Be sure to pick up CNN’s new Lessons album on iTunes as well.

BAPE’s flagship boutique in New York City celebrated its 10 year anniversary last on Thursday night (Apr 23) in Manhattan. Special invited guests Pusha T, Travis $cott, Virgil Abloh, Cipha Sounds, Vashtie and Sky Gellatly — as well as tastemakers from around the world huddled into NYC hot spot, Up & Down for a night of open bar Hennessey and incredible DJ sets. Big shouts to Ciph who killed it all night.

Things peaked when Young Travis climbed on top of the DJ booth in usual fashion. Turning the club atmosphere into one of his wild ass shows, the Bape fiend nearly injured himself when he took a spill, but that didn’t stop him from continuing on. Pyrex P closed the party out with a short but sweet set of his crowd favorites. Even the Japanese BAPE staff lost their minds when “Grindin” dropped.

maxo kream cell boomin

Maxo Kream’s “Cell Boomin” is the trap phone anthem that’ll make you want to leave behind the spoils of an iPhone 6 for a Nokia flip phone. The Houston rapper recently linked up with Awful Records’ Father at A$AP Rocky’s house party down at SXSW to shoot the official video, which we’re premiering today. Directed by Midas Gold, the clip features blunt-rolling cameos from Pretty Flacko and Lucki Eck$. But nothing quite tops the synchronized finger wagging at the one-minute mark. Don’t ever front on five grams.

“Cell Boomin” is taken from Maxo Kream’s #MAXO187 project, which is out now on iTunes.

Last Friday (Feb 6), MissInfo.TV was at the Soho House in Los Angeles to take in the first official listening session for Sean’s new album — slated to be released on Feb 24. XXL was there, and so was MTV and VIBE, but we have something extra. Marisa Mendez for Missinfo.TV
