Week that Was (4-26-12 to 5-2-12)

I’m pretty proud to say that this is probably the only blog where you’ll find a Sav Killz song featured alongside a Foals track. This week’s “Week that Was” has a couple of bangers, a couple of chill driving tracks, and the start to your summer playlist. Enjoy! As always, let us know what we missed!

Video of the Week: Vic Mensa – Blazin

Kids These Days rapper Vic Mensa going in on a Blended Babies/Chuck Inglish produced track. Video produced by the very talented Austin Vesely. Fun to see “Blazin” take on more meanings than just smoking weed… big things ahead for him. If you’re in Champaign make sure to check out Kids These Days performing at Anniversary Plaza for Union Fest. 1401 Green St., expect the band to perform around 9:30 PM.

HAFH: Cool Kids x Lupe Fiasco at Assembly Hall (Pictures/Video)

The last Lupe Fiasco show I went to at the House of Blues started five and half hours later than it was supposed to, ended 20 minutes after it began, and left me pissed off for the next 48+ hours. My last Cool Kids show, on the other hand, was probably the best time I had at Lollapalooza- Chuck and Mikey performed on Perry’s stage for over 10,000 fans. On Sunday night, I went to the Cool Kids and Lupe Fiasco show at Assembly Hall. I wanted to see if Lupe could redeem himself after the “Fiasco-gate” at the House of Blues, and if the Cool Kids could bring the same energy and positive vibes they are known for to a smaller venue with a lot less people who knew their songs.

Check out after the jump to see reviews, photos, and a video of a live performance!
