VIDEO: Rick Ross vs. Snoop on GGN

Rick Ross sat down with Snoop for a legendary interview that consists of music, laughs, and, of course, weed. While Rick Ross is noticeably skinnier, his steez is still the same due to his hustler’s mentality, which Snoop definitely has himself.

The two talk about all things music, and one thing that is very clear is that the two music legends have massive amounts of respect for each other, which ultimately makes the interview more like a conversation between two friends.

VIDEO: Vic Mensa Talks “Free Love”

For Vic Mensa, taking a public stance as an ally for LGBTQ rights was an imperative after a loved one revealed to him that they identified as queer. Following the tragic shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Mensa released “Free Love,” featuring Le1f, Halsey, Lil B and Malik Yusef. As a young black man from the South Side of Chicago, Mensa didn’t always imagine that he’d be talking about LGBTQ-specific issues, which were often considered taboo in his own community. Making the song was a chance for him to grow through discomfort and to encourage boundless love.

His style is very urban, yet his ability to seamlessly and skillfully blend multiple genres together in a cohesive sonically pleasing manner, has landed him residencies and guest appearances at some of the cities hottest venues. Jamil has also been recognized as one of the top djs in Western Canada after competing in the 2013 and 2014 Redbull Thre3style World Dj Championship qualifiers.

After sharing the stage with some of the best in the game (Jazzy Jeff, Skratch Bastid, Four Color Zack to name a few) It has become very clear that Jamil the Dj is a serious force in the Winnipeg music scene.

DMS EXCLUSIVE: Kiiara – Gold (Chris Cox RMX)

gold-chris-cox-dms-exclusive

Chicago based artist Kiiara’s debut single “Gold” is shaping up to be one of the songs of the summer. The trippy, chopped up vocal and infectious bass line are the standout elements of the original, and the focus of this exclusive up-tempo house mix by Chris Cox. Just like his recent Gwen Stefani remix, Cox gives this hit song the energy it needs to be a peak-hour banger!
