Who dominated the pop charts over the past 12 months? The answer, since 2007, can be found in DJ Earworm’s annual “United States Of Pop” mashup, which mixes together the 25 biggest hits of the year (based on Billboard’s year-end Hot 100 chart). For 2016, the San Francisco-based beat-maker has chosen the title “Into Pieces,” and as anyone who’s bent an ear toward radio between January and December might guess, it’s pretty Twenty One Pilots- and Chainsmokers-heavy.

A$AP Rocky is a natural trendsetter. Since 2011, when the Harlem rapper and leader of the A$AP Mob debuted a distinct fusion of syrup-slow Southern rap and Uptown Manhattan swagger on his debut mixtape, LIVE.LOVE.A$AP, he’s been influencing pop culture and making it seem effortless. As Rocky’s developed into a producer, director, actor, model, designer, and creative director, not a damn thing has changed. He leads, the people follow.
And so it makes perfect sense that A$AP Rocky is the first GGN guest in a new era for Snoop Dogg’s beloved news show, which originally launched on his YouTube channel, WestFestTV, and has been an important part of MERRY JANE’s YouTube network. Today marks the launch of MERRY JANE’s content partnership with Apple Music, which will now exclusively air new MERRY JANE/Snoopadelic Films-produced GGN episodes on a bi-weekly basis. Apple Music will also air a selection of archived episodes, such as Snoop’s classic interviews with Seth Rogen, Jamie Foxx, Ice Cube, Omarion, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, and Khloe Kardashian.
On the newest episode of GGN, Rocky and Snoop talk about music, fashion, the eras they most closely identify with, how beef gets blown out of proportion, being ridiculously high, and more. Get a taste of the tastemakers’ convo here and watch the full interview on Apple Music. Then be sure to check out all the great content on Merry Jane’s Apple Music page.

Disregard that this is a commercial for Ford Europe but its the UK’s DJ YODA teaching a Ford Robot how to DJ. No need for alarm. The robots will never replicate the living experience. Still pretty neat.
There must be something in the water in Japan. RENA is 11. SASUKE is 13. It’s great to see the youth across the world upholding the 4 elements of hip-hop culture. Watch and be amazed.
