earthgang

Equal parts afrocentric and eccentric, EarthGang occupy their own lane entirely in Atlanta right now. Just take the title of the duo’s latest mixtape Torba, which is the number seven in Oromo, the language spoken by one of Ethiopia’s oldest (and “baddest”) ethnic groups. The seven also refers to the number of tracks on the project with each song named after a day in the week — which is the minimum time required to fully digest Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot’s abstract rhymes.

Torba is the follow-up to EarthGang’s 2013 mixtape Shallow Graves For Toys, and features contributions from Mac Miller, OG Maco, Childish Major and more.

VA stand up! Two of Virginia’s finest hit the studio, as Missy Elliott and Pharrell Williams were spotted working together. Missy Elliott took to Twitter on Thursday, posting a photo of her and The Neptunes hitmaker in studio. “VA! 2 up 2 down! Me & my fam @Pharrell hard at work,” tweeted Missy to her 2.6 million followers, with her trademark infectious smile.
