After a few days of hyping new visuals for “Tamale,” Tyler, The Creator released the colorful creative visual today. This track is off his Wolf album out now.

The scenes are rather humorous, but what else would we expect from Tyler?! Directed by Tyler himself, he puts himself on a golf course with vibrant colors, giant cats, trampoline on top of booty, and an appearance from Pharell.

Watch the clip below and tell us what you think.

What Happened at Nipsey Hussle’s $100 #Crenshaw Mixtape Signing

What Happened at Nipsey Hussle’s $100 #Crenshaw Mixtape Signing

No Comment

Last night our girl Nicky G stopped by the YOUth store on Fairfax and witnessed history. Nipsey Hussle sold his free Crenshaw mixtape for $100, with the goal to sell 1000 hard copies to his loyal fans.

“F*** the middleman.” He said.

He walked away selling 700 copies last night — but this morning we hear he surpassed his 1k goal.

Not only did his fans get to meet Nip, but they also got a signed copy of the tape, received a Crenshaw tee and hat, and access to a private show.

“This is history.” says Nicky ” This is a reminder that can’t nobody tell you how to live your dream. Prove the nay’sayers wrong. Especially the small minds. And just like Nipsey said, ‘F*** the middleman.’”
