We kick off 2013 with our next On the Rise artist for January, NYC’s A$AP Rocky. As ringleader for hip-hop collective A$AP Mob, he is blazing a wide open trail for the rest of his crew while standing on his own as a crowned prince of hip-hop’s new royalty. His debut album, Long.Live.A$AP, hits the Music Unlimited service today, which has everyone from XXL Magazine to USA Today to Pitchfork singing his praises.
Now, you can hear his On the Rise: A$AP Rocky Artist Picks Channel on the Music Unlimited service, featuring his hand-picked influences and tracks from the debut album, including the Drake-laced “F**Kin’ Problems,” and a longtime Music Unlimited chart-topper, “Goldie.” Keep an eye out for more about A$AP Rocky in the coming weeks and hear for yourself why he’s “on the rise!”
Hey music buffs! This week’s list of the artists and bands playing the late night and morning shows ranges from “of the moment” groups such as Walk The Moon to ‘80s soft rockers such as Lionel Richie and Huey Lewis. There are even a few performers we haven’t seen in a while who will be performing on TV this week, including Matisyahu, Hot Chelle Rae and more.
Check out their live performances and listen to more of their tunes on the Music Unlimited service. Enjoy!
This weekend, the coolest of the cool and the hippest of the hip will gather in Chicago, un-ironically, for the sold out Pitchfork Music Festival. Now in its 7th year, the line-up features as many big names as it does buzzy artists: a diverse, three-day festival during a hot Midwest summer. This is the brainchild of the notoriously taste-making blog, one that often sets the bar of “cool,” for the artists they report on.
If you’re not out in Chicago, you’ll be able to stream several of the performances on Pitchfork’s YouTube pagethroughout the weekend. Check out albums from 10 of these artists below and get to know the songs so you can sing along loudly in your living room.
