Watch Prince Bring Out Kendrick Lamar During Album Release Party

Midwest Promo King Videos Leave a Comment

Thanks to the release of “i” last week, guest verses across a few notable new releases and a particularly venomous Power 106 sermon, it’s safe to say the Kendrick Lamar hype train is running at full steam as the reality of his next album inches closer to fruition. And what does this have to do with Prince?

It has everything to do with Prince.

Fresh off the announcement of his 34th solo album ART OFFICIAL AGE and the adjoining PLECTRUMELECTRUM, the High Prince of Pop treated his universal fan base to a launch party live stream through Yahoo’s Live Nation channel. During the event K-Dot was invited to spike his already adequate Internet presence with an invitational assault over “What’s My Name”. As unexpected as this collaboration might have been, there’s no better way to promote your sophomore album than ambushing The Purple One’s release party, and if there is I’m sure Kendrick’s team are already planning it.

Straight out of Washington D.C. comes Chaz French, who’s been impacting the capital’s hip-hop landscape in the last few months. His memorable performance at D.C.’s Broccoli City Festival earlier this year has been followed by tracks like “Came Down,” “YNN,” and “LMGLML” featuring GoldLink. These cuts also appear on Chaz’s debut project, the Happy Belated EP, which arrives today. The 13-track collection features a string of introspective, yet energetic cuts that deal with subjects like fatherhood issues, alcohol abuse, and more. Happy Belated perfectly demonstrates the rapper’s multifaceted potential. Judging by this EP, we can expect to hear more from Chaz in the near future. Give it a spin above.

When I found out Crystal was making a trip to New York, I didn’t want to let her get away before we got her into the studio. She seems quite happy with the results so I can guarantee a return visit.
