This week Travis $cott was a guest on the HOT97 Morning Show show for the first time to meet Ebro. After getting a great introduction from Peter Rosenberg, the Houston native broke down his working relationships with Kanye West and T.I.

Later in the chat, La Flare hinted at a collaborative project with his friend, Young Thug, and also revealed that he recorded a song with PARTYNEXTDOOR.

Rico Love and Future ride out together in the “He Got Money” visuals, which was featured on RL’s newly released I Sin mixtape. The concept is pretty simple: designer clothes, a few bad chicks and some tricked out cars.

Leaving where he left off in the NSFW video for “Often,” The Weeknd continues the visual ride with the second new video this month, “King of the Fall.” As the sun comes up after a night of explicit fun, the XO singer strolls through the streets of downtown Toronto until nightfall, ending up at an underground party surrounding by hot women and his tight-knit crew. Stroll through the other side of Toronto’s nightlife with The Weeknd in the VEVO premiere below.

Kicking off on September 19 in Brooklyn, New York, The Weeknd will hit the road for the “King of the Fall” tour with Jhené Aiko and ScHoolboy Q.

OG Maco
(OG Maco)

MissInfo: When I get fed up by all the passive aggressive boasting on twitter, all the crap that gets wrapped up and presented like “creative” writing genius, and all the holier-than-thou post-racially-correct how-dare-you thinkpieces… I find a happy place with a song of anti-social, often ignorant, “aggressive content” (c) 50 Cent. For the past month or so, that song has been “(Bitch) U Guessed It” by Atlanta’s OG Maco. (Prior to that it was Stitches “Brick In Yo Face” which was totally terrible and embarrassing…and of course, young Bobby Shmurda.)

But right now…it’s all about OG Maco. This song sounds like a 2014 Mystikal on a syrup bender with a jumbo side order of demonic possession. Yet another voice out of what I’ve been calling ALT-lanta. Maco released an EP with Key! last month called and now there’s a video!

Watch OG Maco (with an appearance from his boy Rome Fortune) tear the telly up in “U Guessed It”…

boaz like this

Boaz has been in beast mode all summer, and less than a month after dropping his Real Name, No Gimmicks Vol. 1 EP, the Steel City spitter returns with a fiery video to his !llmind-produced heater, “Like This.” With Matt Meehan behind the lens, Boaz spits his rhymes into the camera with as much fire as the rising flames that surround him. It’s junkyard dog rap at its finest, but just grimy enough to bump in the Benz. Stay tuned for Boaz’s Rostrum Records debut dropping this Fall.

Earlier this week, DJ Clark Kent and Ronnie Fieg got up with the fellas of Juan Epstein to talk shop abuot their upcoming sneaker event on Sept 21st. But as expected, it turned into a huge rap history lesson from the legendary Brooklyn DJ and producer.

While Ronnie Fieg basically rode shotgun as Clark took Juan Ep down his incredible memory lane, Fieg is a bonafide streetwear star in his own right. And one key takeaway for sneakerheads is the fact that Ronnie talked about his upcoming Adidas collaboration, which will both honor the members of the NYPD/FDNY who gave their lives after the 9/11 Terrorist Attack by including elements of their uniform. Also, proceeds will be donated to their families.

In one of his more personal interviews, A-Trak passed by HOT97 to discuss his early history as a turntablist turned DJ/producer, how he met Kanye West, and more. A-Trak says he intially touched base with Kanye out in the UK by chance when he was booked at the same event as him. From that chance meeting, the two built a very close working relationship and toured together for years after.

Goodie Mob brethren Big Gipp and Cee Lo Green have released a new video for “Shine Like Gold.” Keeping the plot lighthearted, the boys from ATL find themselves lusting after some fine ladies in a number of different situations. They even forces themselves to dress as twins in an attempt to nab the pair of lookers.

“Shine Like Gold” will be featured on Gipp’s sophomore set Zagga.

We got the tracklisting but now here’s a quick trailer to Lil’ Bibby’s upcoming Free Crack 2 mixtape. It’s definitely one of the mixtapes that I’m really looking forward to end the summer with. The Birdman intro is bound to be greatness, and there’s guest appearances from T.I., Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Lil Herb (“Game Over“) and Kevin Gates (“We Are Strong“).
