Awesome sit-down in the studio with GQ that I only wish was longer.
Cud describes how “Reborn”, “Cudi Montage”, “Father Stretch My Hands” and “All of the Lights” came together with Kanye. Highlights like sampling Nirvana and being surprised at what made “Father Stretch My Hands” and “All of the Lights”. Hah, you never know what Kanye will end up using, right?
It’s cool to hear this behind the scenes insight that not only could have been longer, per song, but even covered many more of Cudi’s “iconic tracks” from his first couple of albums. Need a Part 2 (or 3…)
Here’s an independent artist pick for your weekend and it may make you want to visit L.A.
Alas, we reside here now and this visual does the city justice with a few hot spots captured with a raw filter by Klever and co-director (and close Gowhere collaborator, Hetal Bhatt).
The duo provide “God” with that extra L.A. feel and you get a sense of Klever’s personality throughout too. This is a standout of the all-production new album from Klever — Conquer. Check it out (good driving and working music too!)
That now hauntingly famous photo of Mac Miller — his last Instagram post — has a heartwarming but also heartwrenching backstory, as described by photographer Christaan Felber in the video above. Still the feels. Rest easy, MM.
