Joey Bada$$ and rappers from New York's five boroughs celebrated the life and music of their fallen brother Courtney Everald "Jamal" Dewar Jr., better known as Capital STEEZ, on STEEZ Day at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield in New York Tuesday (July 7).
Beast Coast will still be going strong this fall. Collective members Flatbush Zombies and the Underachievers are going to hit the road as Clockwork Indigo. The rappers will embark on a 35-city performance spree known as the Electric Koolade Experience Tour.
Rumors of New York City rap's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Don't let people like Trinidad James fool you -- there are a plethora of dope acts emerging from the five boroughs and the music scene there couldn't be more exciting or diverse.
Talib Kweli teams up with rap newcomers the Underachievers to release a progressive track called 'New Leaders.' Produced by Statik Selektah, the song appears on Kweli’s independent album, 'Gravitas,' due Dec. 15.
New Underachievers material will drop next year, but for now, fans can enjoy watching the Brooklyn, N.Y., duo's escapades in Paris. Issa Gold and AK bring it back to their 'Indigoism' project to showcase the visual for 'Leopard Shepherd.'
