sbtrkt wonder where we land

SBTRKT’s latest collaboration with Sampha, “Temporary View,” was very much a natural evolution from the British producer’s 2011 self-titled debut, and set the tone for his upcoming sophomore album. However, after debuting the latest single with BBC Radio 1′s Annie Mac earlier today, it’s apparent SBTRKT isn’t content with following the same formula — no matter how refined it is.

Teaming up with Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, SBTRKT serves up an unusual ode to the Big Apple with “New Dorp, New York,” which swaps out his familiar synth-lead melodies for restless industrial production that morphs throughout the three-minute running length. Even the man himself admits, “it’s a funny tune.”

It seems like SBTRKT’s plan is to have us scratching our heads as well as nodding them with this new album; take a look at the perplexing artwork above. The project is titled Wonder Where We Land.

UPDATE: Check out the tracklisting to SBTRKT’s new album below, featuring A$AP Ferg, Jessie Ware, Raury and more.

jay electronica farrakhan

Jay Electronica wowed everyone with his rare performance at the 2014 BK Hip-Hop Festival earlier this month, including Minister Louis Farrakhan. Although the Minister wasn’t there to witness “the Farrakhan of rap” in the flesh, he was certainly proud of him representing the Fruit of Islam (F.O.I.) during his set, as he shares in this “humbling and loving” letter to the Roc Nation rapper.

Farrakhan’s main reasoning for the letter, however, was to defend Jay over the backlash he received for using profanity while wearing the F.O.I. uniform, writing, “Is the uniform that represents us more important than that which we say we believe and should represent 24 hours a day?” He also expresses his wish to meet Jay Electronica “to guide him in The Great Work that I know he will do for The Cause of Islam.”

On the latest episode of The Combat Jack Show, the fellas invited West Coast jewelry king, Ben Baller, to the podcast. If you’re not familiar with the flamboyant Korean, he is a L.A. native and has been around the hip-hop scene since the early ’80s. He started at the bottom as a B-Boy and through the years has transformed himself into one of the top celeb jewelers in the game.

The Combat Jack Show Says: Mr. Ben Yang has a lot to say. About a lot of people. And he got it off his chest. Ya’ll been clamoring for a West Coast guest? Here it is. Baller has stories for days. Suge Knight, Dr. Dre., Tupac Shakur, Death Row, Denzel Washington, Aftermath. He’s even got some Dame Dash and Jay Z stories. From record man to jeweler to the stars, dude doesn’t disappoint.

It was a case of trading places as Jimmy Kimmel took the hot seat (pun inteded) on the latest episode of Snoop Dogg’s GGN show. Obviously, Jimmy didn’t partake during his appearance, but he was especially curious about Uncle Snoop’s smoking habits, which may or may not have included a quick joint at The White House one time. As for Jimmy, he talked about how he got his start in late night and always wanting a Snoop DeVille, as well as giving Snoop a new nickname. Not sure if it’ll stick, though.

Watch Kimmel on GGN below…
