Joey Bada$$ took to Instagram earlier in the week to confirm that his upcoming album, A.A.B.A., is "90 percent done." He alluded that following his current tour he will finish the upcoming LP.
Johnny Marr was asked by The Guardian which band he preferred working with the most and the former Smiths guitarist said Modest Mouse. He was with the band from 2006 to 2009 and said: "Yeah. People don’t believe it when I say that. I love Modest Mouse so much because the chemistry of those guys was a real brotherhood. They were a great American band, and I really wanted to be in a great American band.”
Mat Whitecross whose film Oasis: Supersonic chronicles the rise of the iconic British band said that the Gallagher brothers will reunite the group when "there is less pressure." He told Billboard: "But the way Noel talks about the fans at the end of the film is something he comes back to again and again. He’s very generous about their contribution, and I think he would do it for [the fans]. Noel has never said no, but he makes jokes about it. Liam says, ‘Come on, let’s get back on the road!’ He’s keen to do it. The reason it hasn’t happened earlier is they’re in a position of luxury. They’re both rich men. They don’t have to be chasing the opportunity to try and get back together. So hopefully if they do come back, it’ll be for the right reasons, and because they both want to do it.”
On Friday, President Obama called into Sway in the Morning and listed his favorite emcees from past and present. The Commander in Chief said: "I think the young guys, Kendrick and Chance [the Rapper] are doing amazing work. I love Drake, and the girls love Drake, and, you know, so, he’s commercially just doing great, and unbelievably talented. And, you know, Jay Z’s still the king. I mean, you know, he’s got a track record. Same with Kanye, so there’s a lot of talent out there, but when I look at who’s breaking new ground, Kendrick and Chance, those guys are doing just amazing work."
