That's right. Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper will be doing a mixtape together! In 2014, Mr. Glover hinted at a collab between the two, and in a recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) with Mr. Bennett, a fan asked if it was in the works. Bennett, getting straight to the point, simply replied, "Yes." While there were no more details and we hope to high heaven we aren't gonna get F'd over (F standing for "Frank" as in "Frank Ocean"), the excitement is REAL!

Lili K is really starting to blow up and I couldn't be more thrilled. Last year, Tidal named Lili K as their first ever Tidal Rising artist. That same year she released her debut album Ruby, which is an incredible gem of jazz and soul music. Prior to that, you may have heard her fabulous vocal talents on Chance the Rapper's #10Day or Acid Rap mixtapes. But she is building quite a nice body of music on her own, with The Lili K. Band. She herself is a gem, having studied jazz, opera, classical, and music theory at Milwaukee High...

With poise and a timeless quality to his voice, J-shine delivers a much-needed message for the times on his latest single "Lips."

There's much to appreciate with "Lips" aside from...
