Lil Peep And ILoveMakonnen Link Up One More Time For ‘Sunlight On Your Skin’

Last week, iLoveMakonnen unveiled a collaboration with late singer and rapper Lil Peep the pair made before Peep’s untimely death in November 2017. That song, “Falling Down,” also featured contributions from rapper XXXTentacion, who Makonnen said hopped on the track after being inspired after Peep’s death. X was killed earlier this year, making “Falling Down” a melancholy posthumous link-up between the two.

Now, Makonnen has released an alternate version of the song, called “Sunlight on Your Skin,” that features his own vocals alongside Peep’s. It’s largely the same as the one we heard last week, but Makonnen’s vocals add some additional lyrical melodies between Peep’s gravelly recitation of the chorus.

Makonnen posted a clip of the song on Instagram on Thursday (September 27) with the simple caption, “For all the OGs.” He also took to Genius to annotate the song, adding some commentary about the contents and inspiration behind the song.

“Rainy days when you’re together but sunny days when you’re apart, you love each other so much that you would rather spend the rainy days together than to have the sunny days alone, even though the sunny weather is preferred by most,” he wrote. “So it’s like we will stay together all these rainy days and I’m with you until the weather changes, because the love is that strong.”

Check out “Sunlight on Your Skin” above, and dive into the story behind “Falling Down” in the MTV News video below.

Kanye West, J. Cole, And More Pay Tribute To XXXTentacion

Controversial rapper XXXTentacion died Monday (June 18) at the age of 20 after being shot in South Florida. The young rapper’s ascent was plagued and partially indebted to his ongoing legal troubles. The “SAD!” artist served jail time and faced a slew of charges, including a domestic violence case dating back to 2016.

His propensity to troll the hip-hop elite coupled with his provocation of critics made him one of rap’s most contentious figures. Since news of his shooting and death, many in the hip-hop community have taken to social media for an outpouring of support.

One of XXXTentacion’s closest friends and fellow South Florida rapper Ski Mask the Slump God took to Instagram to post a picture of his fallen associate. In October 2017, Ski Mask distanced himself from the “Look At Me!” rapper after claiming he threatened his family on Instagram. However, in one of the most surprising moments at 2018′s Rolling Loud, the two rappers hit the stage together. At one point during the performance, XXX told Ski, “Yo bro, I love you, bro.”

One of the more surprising condolences comes from J. Cole. In X’s 2017 XXL Freshman freestyle, he dissed the Fayetteville MC with the lines, “Don’t understand why J. Cole talkin’ ’bout false prophets / But didn’t mention higher-ups / Change your name to Amber Cole / These fucking entertainers is playing it by the rules / Sucking government dick for safety to stay cool.”

Despite X’s freestyle, in a January interview with Adam Grandmaison of No Jumper, Cole called the South Florida rapper “talented.”

“This got me fucked up,” Cole tweeted today. “RIP X. Enormous talent and limitless potential and a strong desire to be a better person. God bless his family, friends and fans.”

Perhaps the most high-profile response came from Kanye West. While the Chicago rapper has never collaborated with X, he did share that he is inspired by the South Florida artist.

“Rest in peace,” Kanye tweeted. “I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here thank you for existing.”

A$AP Rocky Reveals Entire Testing Tracklist With Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, And More

It’s an exciting time for hip-hop heads. Not only is Pusha T releasing his Kanye West-produced Daytona on Friday (May 25), but A$ AP Rocky’s Testing album will arrive as well.

With just a few hours to wait until fans can listen in full, Rocky has revealed the album’s tracklist and production credits — and to say it’s stacked would be an understatement. Skepta and Boi-1da are among the producers involved, while the roster of featured artists includes FKA Twigs, Dev Hynes, Playboi Carti, and Kodak Black. Two of the most intriguing posse cuts are “Brotha Man” with Frank Ocean and French Montana, and “Purity” with Ocean and the legendary Ms. Lauryn Hill. The tracklist also teases the previously released single “A$ AP Forever” featuring Moby and a newly credited appearance from Kid Cudi.

Check out all the newly teased tracks in the Star Wars-style video below.

To hype up Testing even more, Rocky linked up with Beats 1′s Zane Lowe to break down the features on his third studio album.

“I mean, sparring with Frank is the best training you can get,” Rocky said about Ocean. “I love it because it’s art at its purest form and when we are in the studio, aware of the environment, there’s no egos, man. It’s really like just friends, just honestly sparring and trying to make the best of the best, and get the best out of each other.”

He continued, “We’ve got a Kid Cudi feature on there. I was just fucking stoked about that. … Now, finally, within my career, I could just showcase that, and show people, like, yo, these are the people I grew up with, these are the people I admire.”

The feature-heavy Testing arrives on Friday (May 25). The wait is almost over!

Cardi B Reveals The Sex Of Her Baby And 4 More Juicy Revelations From New Interview

Cardi B has always been candid about the pressures of fame, and now the “Be Careful” singer is opening up about potentially going to therapy.

“People used to be like, ‘maybe you should do therapy,’” Cardi stated. “And I used to be like, uh-uh, colored folks, we don’t need none of that. We just go to church, and we pray about it. And then it’s just like… I think it’s a little bit more than that. I don’t want people to think I’m not enjoying this moment, [but] it’s just a lot to handle.”

Is Cardi B’s ‘Bickenhead’ Her Next ‘Bodak Yellow’? And More Moments From Invasion Of Privacy

Bodak Bar: “I took pictures with Beyoncé, I met Mama Knowles / I’m the rose that came from the concrete in the Rolls”

“Best Life,” featuring Chance The Rapper, is Invasion of Privacy‘s first great album cut. It isn’t as club-ready as “Bickenhead,” as worldly as “I Like It,” or vulnerable like “Thru Your Phone,” but it doesn’t need to be.

The genius of “Best Life” is the way it positions Cardi next to Chance. The Chicago artist doesn’t outrap Cardi like he tends to do and he might not have been able to considering how hard the former Love & Hip Hop actress spits throughout the album. Instead of lyrical competition, the low-key song allows for both rappers to get inspirational while collectively geeking out about how they met Beyoncé.

Diplo Whips Up A Tasty Collab With Lil Yachty & Santigold On “Worry No More”

At this point, are you even surprised when you see pizza in a visual involving Lil Yachty? It’s all I ever expect from the rapper now, but he decided to switch it up in the music video for Diplo’s new single “Worry No More.” This time, he takes on the role of a professional baker with help from cake master Santigold who is also featured on the bouncy track. Any worries that I might have had previously evaporated the moment I spotted the first stack of cakes on the table—I really need to stop watching stuff like this when I’m hungry.

I am highly aware that Lot$ O’ Cake isn’t a real bakery, but Diplo should totally consider opening a pop up because I would literally buy all of the treats that they made in this video. This delicious track is fresh off the Mad Decent producer’s California EP which is slated to drop on March 23. Try not to get the grumbles while looking at all the sweets in the video below.

LeBron Rocks Nike Air Force 1 “More Than An Athlete” Makers Custom Before All-Star Game

Still incensed by the comments Fox News’ Laura Ingraham made about him, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James sent a direct shot to her choice words with his choice of footwear before the 2018 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday.

Wanting to let Ingraham and his other critics know that he won’t “shut up and dribble,” James wore a custom pair of Nike Air Force 1 that had “More Than An Athlete” written one one side, deriving from the 90/10 custom creations from Nike’s Makers of the Game space in LA.

Peep photo of James’ custom AF1 below.
