More visuals on this wonderful Monday morning! Joey B dropped the “Hilary Swank” video, showing a young 14 year old Joey in a cypher, a current Joey rockin a sold out show, and interestingly enough, the Kendrick Lamar Hot 97 interview. Make sure you stick around until the end too, there’s a nice tribute to the late Pro Era member, Capital Steez. Enjoy!

2013 Lolla Must Sees

My favorite post to write every year, and this year is no different. Many may be complaining that this year’s Grant Park lineup doesn’t compare to other major music festivals around the world, but those people aren’t looking hard enough. Last year I suggested catching Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, as they were destined for stardom (and boy has it hit hard, with a sold-out world tour approaching and 3 tracks in the Billboard Top 100), and Givers, who were up there for my favorite performance of 2012. So same drill… you will not find The Killers, Mumford & Sons, Phoenix, or even Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper on this list. While I still highly recommend checking out all of those acts, here are the lesser known artists you can’t miss.
