So this sucks. There are only three dates, and these are the dates:

Nov. 5: New Orleans, LA @ House of Blues
Nov. 6: New York, NY @ Bowery Ballroom
Nov. 15: Los Angeles, CA @ El Rey Theater

And the worst part is that if you’re looking for NYC tickets, you are seriously out of luck, because according to Def Jam’s twitter, the tickets for Bowery Ballroom sold out in 12 minutes. This is absolutely insane if you took 1 second to think about it, because there was zero indication of this small tour happening, no promotions, no twitter announcement or tumblr, nothing. How does this happen?

Anyways, if you’re still looking to get tickets at the El Ray Theater in Los Angeles or New Orleans House of Blues, go ahead and get them Ticketmaster here.

If you’re like me and not close enough to attend those three shows, you can pray that this tour expands to other cities. Otherwise, I guess you can enjoy the Thinking About You and Swim Good videos. Frank Ocean tour, I can’t believe I slept on that…

You lucky Europeans need to hop on top of these dates
11/8 – Amsterdam, Netherlands @ Bitterzoet
11/9 – Paris, France @ Le Social Club
11/11 – London, England @ XOYO

I don’t know where to get these tickets. But I’m gonna guess that if you’re too late, you’re stuck hitting up stubhub like us Americans have to. Unless stubhub doesn’t exist in Europe, in which case, I really don’t know what to tell you.



Stream the entire mixtape here

Listen here, there are only two things you need to take away from this site.

1) I can’t seem to keep up with broken links. I swear at one point or another, these all worked.

2) There are at this point 2 artists you need to stop sleepin on before I reach out your monitor and slap you. Those two artists are Frank Ocean and The Weeknd. We all know Frank has already made it onto the airwaves with Novacane, it’s only a matter of time until The Weeknd has a radio appropriate track. Today we have some new material from The Weeknd, so enjoy this. Let’s hope the link doesn’t break.

The best part is at the end. High five me if you agree


I’ve been out all day, and I’ve missed out on a lot of stuff today but THIS is the only song that matters for today. October 24th can’t get here fast enough. This song speaks to my soul. I need more. Edit: Not sure why the cut’s still floating around cut out the voice mail part, but the download below should still have it.

Fuck that nigga that you love so bad

I know you still think about the times we had

I say fuck that nigga that you think you found

And since you picked up I know he’s not around

All lyrics after the jump, download it at Hypetrak’s Hulksahre (Drake’s mediafire page is down)


Don’t laugh at me, but I don’t know how to embed this, so here’s a link to the snippet, or you can just listen to it on his blog.

Took me a few days, but here’s a soundcloud player for the snippet.

This is a different sound than we’re used to from Frank Ocean which just means we really have no idea how talented this guy really is. Only question is WHEN WILL THE WHOLE SONG DROP?! Soon apparently, and no, it’s not on the re-release of Nostalgia, ULTRA Also, the She video from Tyler feat. Frank will drop tomorrow so definitely check in here for that ASAP.

Bitch, I’m a PLAYER now

So the news here is that  MellowHype (comprised of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain from Odd Future) is getting a commercial release of the BlackenedWhite mixtape… well, album starting July 12th. This Wolf Gang shit is blowin up fast, except not really. BlackenedWhite came out October. Free. So I don’t know what these record labels are expecting with this and Frank Ocean’s release, but I guess we’ll see. What really needs to happen is the record labels should be promoting these free mixtapes to generate more hype for new material. But I’m probably wrong, we’ll find out July though (I think I’m always right btw).

Chordaroy won’t make the commercial cut because they can’t use Earl Sweatshirt’s vocals. Somebody bring that kid back please.  But thank god we have Frank Ocean, amiright? This was my favorite track from the mixtape, so enjoy this.

News source is Hypetrak.

Been out all day but holy fuck did I miss I big one today. It’s a different sound from Weezy and the man can do it all. This is just amazing, I fucking CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE CARTER IV!

Heard it on Hypetrak first, downloaded it at G.M.A.D.
