Kendrick Lamar, Stevie Wonder headlining Life Is Beautiful Festival 2015

I’ve long been a fan from afar of the new, annual Las Vegas music festival ‘Life Is Beautiful’ and this year may just get me into the City of Sin.

As you can see from the lineup above, there are a lot of great acts to see… even beyond headliners like Kendrick Lamar and the living legend Stevie Wonder. I’d line up to see Kid Cudi, Run The Jewels, Kygo, and SZA, just to name a few.

Check out video of the announcement and get more of a sense of the fest here.

Usher & Stevie Wonder Grammys 2015

One of the Grammy surprises tonight was Stevie Wonder himself as he came out at the end of Usher’s “Is It Magic” tribute to him to play some harmonica and bring in some good vibes.

Watch Usher & Stevie Wonder below:

And Twitter had fun at Kim’s expense afterwards, haha.

Snoop Dogg new album entirely Pharrell produced

I have a feeling this is what the fans want, Snoop.

News via Billboard today on one of Reddit’s new investors’ upcoming rap album…

1. It’ll be entirely produced by Pharrell. That’s beautiful.
2. The album will be released on Pharrell’s i am Other imprint. That’s interesting.
3. Charlie Wilson and Stevie Wonder (!) to guest star. That’s sweet, guys.

I enjoy all those ingredients with the Snoop base, this should yield another hit or 2. And then we can start talking about the music again after this week’s headline-raising, ultimately insignificant squashed beef with Iggy Azalea.
