He also performed a live band reinterpretation of “Bounce Back.”

Big Sean took the SNL stage for the first time this weekend, where he performed two songs from his upcoming fourth studio album I Decided. Sean began with his single “Bounce Back,” which was given a slightly different arrangement to the Metro Boomin-produced recording, thanks to a live band. Later on, he premiered a song from the album called “Sunday Morning Jetpack,” which is said to feature an appearance from The-Dream on the record. 

The personal track features a few memorable lines that reference Cam’ron and Kanye West, as well as Sean’s collaborator and rumored girlfriend Jhene Aiko.

This feels like the first time I heard Killa Cam
Pink Tims in the Lamb
Mixing it in with Dilla and
Headphones to the ceiling fan

You the reason I ever touched my first Franklin
Fast forward, I’m in Kanye crib with Kirk Franklin

And see you again, needless to say
Back when I dated Alisha, Simone
Or any other girl who looked like Lisa Bonet
Who was jealous of me and Jhené

I Decided is out February 2nd. Sean recently revealed that Eminem would be featured on the project in an extensive interview with Zane Lowe.

Ralo documents the scene of a car accident in which he miraculously escaped without injury.

Ralo is a very lucky man. The Atlanta rapper seems to have narrowly avoided death today, sharing a video of his totaled car and revealing to fans that he escaped his second car accident in a month “without a scratch.”

“That just tell you Allah is the greatest at all times,” Ralo said after giving his Instagram followers a close look at his wrecked vehicle, which was flipped upside down beside the freeway. “Walk away from this shit like a gangsta.”

It’s not clear if there were other passengers in the car at the time of the accident, but members of the rapper’s crew can be seen by his side in the video. There is no mention of anyone else being injured in the crash.

The spring and summer may bring “music and concerts” from Mr. West.

Kanye West has had an unpredictable last few months, but it sounds like he’s regrouping and focusing on art and family in 2017. A source has reported to E! News on Kanye’s plans for the new year.

“Kanye has a few surprise projects coming up that involves music and concerts in the spring and summer,” the source claims. “Plus he is working on his fashion line and some collaborations.”

Unfortunately, there’s no word on what these “projects” are. Kanye has hinted at a solo album called Turbo Grafx 16, a GOOD Music album called Cruel Winter, and a joint project with Drake which may or may not be called Calabasas Is The New Abu Dhabi — though knowing Ye, he probably has something entirely new up his sleeve.

The report also suggested that Kanye is spending as much time with his family as possible. “His kids are his number one priority for him and he wants to be a good dad and make his mother proud,” reads the quote. “He thinks about her every day.”

Earlier this month, fans speculated that photos of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian held secrets to Kanye’s upcoming projects.

T.Y. suggests his father could be home within the next year or two.

NOLA rapper and former Hot Boy B.G. was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison back for gun possession and witness tampering in 2012, but his son, Jet Life rapper T.Y., suggests he’ll be home a lot sooner than expected.”His time was shortened. He’s coming home like within probably this year,” T.Y. said in an interview with DJ Smallz. “If not this year, next year for sure, but we shooting for this year, you feel me? Cause he been telling me all kinds of good shit.”

He went on to explain that B.G. has been through a few different facilities over the last little while, sometimes making it very difficult for the two to communicate. “When he was in Pennsylvania, that was like the worst jail,” he said. “Since he got out that motherfucker everything’s been a lot better. During that time it was rough on him bro, but he’s doin’ good now.”

While it’s been hard to stay in touch at times, T.Y. suggests he’s always made an effort to speak to his father even if he had to resort to writing. “We was just communicating through letters,” he recalled. “And that shit don’t be moving like how you would think cause that shit takes days to get to you. That shit be crazy, but we talked as much as we could.”

Here’s hoping B.G. is home sooner than later. T.Y. just released a collaborative project with Curren$y and Corner Boy P called Jetlanta. Listen to it here.

2Piece Malone Takes ‘Psychedelic’ Music On A Global Tour

This is the post excerpt.

DALLAS, TX – 2Piece Malone is an artist who embodies the duality of mankind – the idea that every person essentially has two personalities. It’s an idea as old as time. Some have called it the Id and the Ego, the good and the bad, the fun and the serious. For 2Piece Malone, it’s an identity that he hopes fans will embrace through his self-proclaimed “yin and yang” music.

“It’s the whole reason why I go by 2Piece Malone,” he said. “I have two albums that I dropped at the same time, and one is more straight, hard content with a lot of substance while the other album is more about having fun and being relaxed and shows my other side of my personality. I think everybody has at least two personalities within them. Someone might be militant one moment and then thuggin’ the next. Most people carry two personalities within them, whether they admit it or not, and when you hear my music I want you to feel something regardless of where you’re at in the moment – mad, sad, laughing … it doesn’t matter, as long as you’re getting some kind of feeling from it.”

Born as Robert Malone, 2Piece first became interested in music as a young child. He said he remembers growing up with older brothers who would always be watching movies that featured people rapping in them. He also remembers parents who would play some of the classics – like the Temptations and the 5 Heartbeats.

“Seeing that and seeing the power you can have with your words to affect people, and seeing them react to that, was real intriguing for me initially,” he said. “I started writing some of my own stuff when I was 14, and started getting serious about it toward the end of high school.”

Today he’s growing in popularity internationally – currently bouncing back and forth between Kuwait and Dubai to push his music and perform live shows or DJ private parties. He’s had the opportunity to perform at a number of clubs in Dubai and plans to extend his global tour through April of 2017 before coming back to the U.S.

In the meantime, he hopes fans will be impressed with a new single he’s released called “Barz” that’s available on Spotify and Soundcloud. He said it’s a song that’s somewhat “psychedelic” in a sense.

“It’s a song that came about on one of those nights when I took some Xanex bars and was listening to some beats and that’s what popped into my head,” he said. “It’s one of the standout songs on the EP I released (“2Piece Malone – NLFS,” available on iTunes). It’s a comical song but it also has a double meaning. It’s lyrical and funny and psychedelic and trippy all at the same time.”
