Tune in to Part 2 of Episode 38: 

00:00-02:55  Strive by A$AP Ferg ft. Missy Elliott

03:20-9:30 A$AP Ferg is one of the more popular members of the A$AP Mob, and his latest album “Always Strive and Prosper” was a nod to the group that was founded by deceased leader A$AP Yams. We attended Ferg’s concert a few days after the mob released Cozy Tapes: Vol. 1 Friends, and his show was definitely a high octane party.

9:35-14:55  A$AP Rocky is definitely a fashion rapper, who’s been embraced by high fashion, and who reciprocates by dropping brand after brand into his raps. We delve into the history of high fashion and rap, and the artists who paved the way for Rocky and the like. We also discuss whether this is a fad, or here to stay.

14:55-17:50 Bachelor by A$AP Rocky ft. MadeinTYO, Lil Yachty and Offset

22:06-23:40 We attended Anderson .Paak‘s “Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals” tour, with special guest Duckwrth. We talk about Anderson .Paak’s musicality, and how he’s more of an entertainer, than a rapper.

23:41- 25:17 Duckwrth has been everywhere lately! Nowness premiered his latest video Rare Panther/ Beach House and he’s toured across North America with Anderson .Paak. We’re so excited for him, and we discuss seeing him perform for the first time.

25:20-31:25 We attended the opening of Witness at the New Media Gallery, and during our time there, we pondered whether electric cats dream of robotic fish?

00:00-3:09 Violet by Daniel Caesar

3:16-7:07 Death and Taxes by Daniel Caesar

7:33-9:36 We’ve been playing Daniel Caesar on the show since we heard music from his second EP Praise Break. We saw him perform for the first time, and were so excited to hear the music come to life during his performance.

9:46-11:05  Digital artist Pencil Fingerz held an art exhibit showcasing many of his portraits and commissions from hip hop artists. His exhibit was aptly titled “My Creations” and featured works of Frank Ocean and the Underachievers. We discuss checking out his portraits IRL.

11:08 We attended the Vancouver stop of the “Summer Sixteen Tour” featuring Drake, Future, DVSN and Roy Woods. We were most impressed with DVSN’s performance, vocalist has brought the best of ’90s R&B back to life, and it was a nice slow down before Future and Drake turned things back up.

14:27-19:58 Sept. 5th by DVSN
