The forecast was perfect. 70 degrees, partly cloudy, and full of people wanting to rage. The eagerly awaited second installment of Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival kicked off at noon on Saturday, with massive crowds rushing the gates. Featuring a star-studded lineup, the day was sure to be a hit with the fans, and it was. […]

Prior to this album, I had only known the name “Nipsey Hussle” as a West Coast hustler; someone who was well respected in the game yet didn’t draw a lot of attention outside the worlds of hip-hop enthusiasts and artists within the industry. After his release of the politically charged “FDT feat. YG,” Hussle subsequently […]

Coverage by Waylon O’Day, Bree Angela Hamilton, Raj Radia, and Franco Rosa Photos by Aarik Charles and Junior Fernandez People from around the world descended upon the Bayou City this weekend for a one of the most highly anticipated festivals of the year, Day for Night.

After last year’s festival, which was the first, it seemed almost impossible to top the inaugural lineup which included names like New Order, who hadn’t performed in the city for twenty years, or Death Grips who are notorious flakes when it comes to highly anticipated appearances. However, the guys at Day for Night have managed […]

Houston’s rap scene has had a division of North and South sides ever since Swishahouse popped up on the Northside in the late Nineties in response to the rising prominence of DJ Screw and the Screwed up Click both have contributed some of the biggest names that have come out of the H, but the […]

If you missed Sunday’s Le$ concert, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a complete review of the show. Houston hosted the closing night of the H-Town underground star’s Steak X Shrimp Tour, which saw a lot of hazy clouds, up and coming artists, and some surprising faces.

Do you like UGK? Curren$y? How about Jazz? Initially these three things look to be on complete different sides of the musical spectrum, but a listen through New Orleans born, Houston raised Le$’s numerous releases will make the three seem as though they’ve always been synonymous. This fusion of styles is what audiences should expect […]

With two lines wrapped around the venue an hour before show time, it was clear that Big K.R.I.T. was going to give our fair city a night it wouldn’t soon forget.

Coverage by: Trent Lira and Tiffany Valdez Hot and sticky but full of relentless energy, the first day at Free Press Summer Fest was exactly the epic summer party it promised to be. Although the festival was relocated from it’s original spot on the banks of Buffalo Bayou, NRG Park provided much of the same […]

The genre RnB maybe holding on by a thread but 19-year-old Houstonian Kyndall may be the one to sew it back up. This past weekend, Kyndall had a listening party for her EP: “Still Down.” A project where she opens up about the infidelity and struggles from her past relationship with her first love. I […]

The Palm on 6th st. was a full house and for good reason.  Not only was the headliner for the evening Too $hort, but names like King Chip, Freddie Gibbs, Slim Thug and Trae the Truth were on the bill as well. The Saturday night evening was put on by Empire Distribution and they really […]

The night before his 2nd studio album dropped, Cadillactica, Big K.R.I.T threw down a stellar performance.   One that would signify him as a true king remembered in time (K.R.I.T.).  He performed tracks from multiple mixtapes and albums, with songs like “Sub pt. 1” all the way to “Cadillactica,” off the self titled album.  K.R.I.T.
