Kendrick Lamar, Nas & More to Appear on Swizz Beatz’ Upcoming Album

Almost over a decade after he dropped his first solo album One Man Band, producer Swizz Beatz is gearing up for his second solo effort, titled Poison. As per Pitchfork, we finally have wind of the guest features set to appear on the new record and we can expect vocals from Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Pusha-T, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, the Lox, Jim Jones, and Giggs, among others.

“You can hear the passion from everyone on the record; they wanted to be a part of it,” Beatz told Pitchfork. “It wasn’t a transaction. When you hear other features on a lot of projects, it feels like a transaction. You’re either chasing hype or it’s a transaction.”

Beatz originally had 70 songs, which he stripped back to the 10 on the album. He explained,“I took all the hits off my record, meaning anything that felt too big that the rest of the record wouldn’t live.” Potential tracks with Kanye West, Bono from U2, and Bruno Mars failed to make the cut.

In addition to hip-hop oriented record Poison, the producer is also prepped to release a further four full-lengths focusing on R&B, acoustics, and “energy” record and a “global” album.

Poison is set to drop on July 20.

In other music news, Gorillaz’ Damon Albarn says he warned Paul McCartney about working with Kanye West

Spotify Went Overboard on Drake Promo & The Internet Lost It

Spotify celebrated the drop of Drake’s Scorpion with an intensive promotional campaign — even on Spotify’s premium subscriptions, which are billed as being ad-free.

Spotify plastered its landing page with playlists and banners relating to Drake and his latest album, covering playlists — including ones without any Drake tracks — with pictures of him. Playlist headers carried slogans such as “Have a happy FriDrake” and “Thank God it’s FriDrake,” with Spotify tweeting, “There’s a @Drake for practically every mood. #ScorpionSZN is here. Listen now on Spotify.”

One Spotify user took to Reddit and shared chat transcripts with Spotify’s customer service team, claiming that the streaming service had refunded the user’s payment for the month after they had complained about the Drake promotion. However, other Reddit posts say that claims for refunds have been rejected, as the Drake playlists were “not a form of advertising but a form of recognition to the artist.”

Twitter was also stacked with annoyed users keen to vent their views on the Drake-laden Spotify interface. Browse some of the best replies below.

How to Pre-Order the Heron Preston x Carhatt WIP Capsule

Along with a space waste-inspired capsule with NASA we recently posted about, Heron Preston has been busy on the collaborations front. In a no less exciting, but decidedly more of-this-earth pairing, the brand has worked with Carhartt WIP on yet another Fall/Winter 2018 collection.

While Heron’s collaboration with NASA featured high-tech parkas and heavily space-inspired pieces, this Carhartt WIP collaboration has the designer’s signature stamps all over it. Heron Preston’s trademark orange can be seen on every single piece, along with its trademark Cyrillic quote, “СТИЛЬ”.

Meanwhile, Carhartt WIP’s influence (and signature patch) comes into play on workwear-heavy designs including paint-splattered vests, work jackets, and jeans.

Ranging in price from $290 to $950, the entire collection comprises work jackets, vests, tees, long-sleeve tops, jeans, and a belt bag, all available for pre-order now with expected shipment by January 31, 2019.

Mellow Out with a “Twix” from London MC Oscar #Worldpeace

Growing up in the same North London neighbourhood as grime heavyweights like Skepta and JME, it was only a matter of time before Oscar #Worldpeace would try his hand at music.

Gaining a solid fanbase with his honesty and introspective rhymes, Mike Skinner of The Streets first caught ear of Oscar with his single “Mook” released a few years back, and he’s been a mentor to him ever since.

We’ve got the exclusive on his latest single “Twix,” featuring none other than our girl Ace Tee on the supporting vocals. Check it out below, and if it doesn’t have you craving a Twix bar with its mellow grooves courtesy of producer E-Whizz and Oscar’s smooth flow, you better check yourself.

Keshav Chirimar, India’s Biggest Streetwear Head, on Gaining 500k Followers in 4 Years

#GramGen is a series profiling the most radical characters in youth culture, who continue to shape trend behavior and spark controversy through their avant fashion sense and candid social media personalities.

The lyrics “I got 20 closets, I could dress according to the wave,” from Young Thug’s “Cruise Ship,” have been chosen to first describe Keshav Chirimar’s lavish lifestyle when would-be fans come across his Instagram profile.

Hailing from Calcutta, India, Chirimar is one of few Indian fashion influencers that turns a profit in a country that has more than one billion people. When he isn’t working with his family during his professional work day, Chirimar is visualizing his next Instagram move. Scrolling through his feed you’ll find brands like BAPE and Off-White, as well as more luxury houses such as Goyard and Louis Vuitton, the latter of which is Chirimar’s favorite brand at the moment.

While the young fashion influencer has found success on social media, Chirimar admits “social media is not a taboo, but it’s not looked up upon in India.” He also gives us some insight as to why there isn’t a prevalent streetwear scene in India; but that doesn’t mean he isn’t trying to change that.

We spoke with the Indian fashion influencer about his early beginnings on Instagram, his take on India’s fashion scene, and how he stays connected with his close-knit, private community of followers.

I never started with the intention of making it into something big, like making it as a huge fashion influencer. I just saw other people on Instagram, what they were doing, and it inspired me a lot, I realized I wanted to pursue something similar. Being in India, it’s really hard copping all these new pieces that keep coming out.

Shipping is a huge pain in the ass because it takes 15 to 20 days for anything to get here. So not until I started going on trips and I shopped to my heart’s content was I ready to start. That’s when I decided to start an Instagram, back in late 2014. I just started normally, posting good content, and it’s taken me where it is right now.

In the beginning it was really quick, I grew pretty quickly, and after about a year or two is when Instagram showed its true colors by getting the new algorithm. That’s when growth slowed down a lot cause you had to tackle new forms of organic reach. There’s so many tactics you can use, so my team and I had to keep trying to discover new tactics to grow. Getting to 200k followers was about a year and a half. That’s pretty quick for an influencer, because you’re not a stacked page who’s just reposting content, you’re creating your own content, so I think that’s pretty good.

I’d like to think It’s very well-styled. I’m good in a pair of jeans and a plain white T-shirt, or I can go all out in a $3,000 Gucci jacket and track pants. It depends on the occasion. I would say my style is very simple, I like matching things, not in the sense they have to be the same thing top and bottom, they just have to go together. Simplistic, not too loud. There are events, however, where I go fully loud, but only special occasions.

I’ve always wanted to look good, dress well, and this was at an age when I was growing into an adult. When I was turning 18, Instagram was huge at the time. Instagram was such a huge inspiration for me to showcase my style, along with the trips to London that I took. They were all eye-openers, Instagram, along with the trips. The London fashion sense and streetwear culture really impressed me a lot. It boosted me to do what I’m doing now.

For luxury, it has to be Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Gucci. On the streetwear side it’d be BAPE, Supreme, Off-White, and Yeezy; Kanye’s a huge inspiration. There are a couple other brands, like Balenciaga, Givenchy, Moncler, Fendi, Valentino, and of course Goyard. These brands are my main favorites, the brands I really fuck with.

There’s not really a lot of streetwear in India. It’s mainly shirts, suits, trousers, button-ups, and laced Oxfords. It’s that, “nine-to-five job,” there’s no streetwear. But there are a lot of Indian streetwear companies who are starting out, and a lot of them are trying to come up with innovative new stuff. When I went to this New Delhi streetwear event I saw a lot of Indian designers doing their thing and I definitely want to do whatever I can to help them make it in the streetwear community.

Yeah, there are so many upcoming brands. I’m sure some of them will reach the top and make a name for themselves, they have amazing designs. Hopefully they come up on the map.

There are other influencers in the fashion world in India but none of them are doing what I’m doing. None of them are doing it at the same level, other than doing the same thing.

Social media is not a taboo, but it’s not looked up upon in India. No one gives too much importance to social media, they don’t think it’s a viable way to earn to an income. That’s why it’s so hard for Indians, for social media influencers in India, to grow, because there’s no support, there’s no moral support from companies, brands, nothing.

I have seen a change, of course, but not a major change. People still think that Instagram is like a bubble, that’s going to burst soon, and no one will remember it for what it was. It is just an app, so no one really pays too much attention to social media still. But thankfully now there are a select few companies who pay influencers to promote for them and create content for them.

There are a few followers who are nice, a few followers who are dumb, and a few followers who are not nice. It’s a fact. I try and answer and help all the good followers, if they send me inquiries, or if they wanna ask me something I try and help out if I can. They send me suggestions in regards to what photos to post, or what outfits to rock so they can it rock it themselves. They wanna see someone else doing it first, to see if it looks good or not.

Streetwear isn’t all about big name brands and high-priced items. Streetwear starts with a regular T-shirt, torn jeans, and a pair of Vans. You could be rocking a streetwear outfit for a budget of $30 USD. You’ve got to stick to what your budget is. It’s perfect, go grind that, it’s not all about the brands. It doesn’t have to be pricey or flashy. It doesn’t have to be like that always. I’m doing that right now because that’s what I cater to, that’s what my fans want, that’s what my followers want to see.

The space that I’m in right now, doing these interviews, not showing my face, I actually wanna stick to that. I really don’t wanna show my face anymore in the future, I just wanna keep it low-key, like how I’m doing it right now, a subtle flex. Just keep doing what I’m doing right now. If I really become hype, probably do something like a clothing brand collaboration with someone. For now, I’m just gonna keep doing what I’m doing right now.

I got 20 closets I could dress according to the wave ????????‍♂️
